Time’s A-Ticking

It’s only the seventh day of the year, and already a ticking clock can be heard in the distance. Is this rush necessary? The square of Mars and Saturn isn’t helping matters. Each task comes with an accompanying lesson whether or not we’re in the mood to learn it. On the bright side: “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one.”— Albert Einstein

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your work team will have all of the excitement of a top-rate marching band, playing and moving together, the sun glinting off of their instruments and creating a unifying spirit as they go.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Everyone has different gifts. You appreciate and value your friends accordingly. For instance, the one who remembers random useless facts isn’t necessarily smarter than the others, but is more fun to have around.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know what you like, and you seek to add more of it to your world. Being specific in this regard will be key to developing your own style, a worthwhile endeavor over the next three days.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are few who would argue with you these days — not only because you make so much sense, but also because your amplified presence is slightly intimidating. Be aware and go gently.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Self-control feels like an arbitrary aim at this point. Why should you go against your basic nature to accomplish something that other people say you should do? It’s a question you’ll mull over all day long.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While doing something you do well, you could become extremely bored. Challenge yourself to take on the untested and unknown. You’ll gain new skills, and you’ll have fun.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you don’t care where you are, you’re neither lost nor found. What if you didn’t believe in progress? Every place might be considered a destination point. There are many beautiful aspects to your current location.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The moon in your sign brings a bit of unexpected feeling keenly felt. You might say your eyes are open to the bittersweet symphony of life. Emotions fall into the slightly achy, beautiful category of “poignancy.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You could find yourself pulling Cupid’s arrow from your person. Venus heads out of your sign tomorrow, and you might welcome the break from focusing so intently on personal relationships.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A loving force is coming into your life and very soon. Go deeper into your high-minded interests. Aligning yourself with intellectual greatness will attract the best.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The way you interact in personal and professional relationships may seem completely normal to you, and yet your style sets you apart in some way. You’ll be admired and imitated, too.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Woodworkers know not to sand against the grain, and you know better than to work at cross-purposes with those around you. You’ll make sure you understand their aims and expectations.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 7). You get what you really want for your birthday: time! It’s the most precious commodity, and when you’re spending it doing what you enjoy, it’s even better. Love and promises come in February. March starts a trend that affects your lifestyle. A domestic transformation will take place from June through August.   Aries and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 1, 29 and 44.

ARIES YEAR AT A GLANCE: JANUARY: Mars and Jupiter favor your big project. The new moon on the 11th is a kick in the pants to get busy. FEBRUARY: Spiritual matters impact you and inspire you to take a more imaginative approach to daily living. MARCH: This is your month. You’re unstoppable with a strong sense of focus. APRIL: The new moon in your sign on the 10th holds magic and gives a fresh start to relationships. MAY: The solar eclipse on the 9th may have you doubting yourself, but you’re also brave enough to face your fear. JUNE: Riches come in many forms. JULY: Jupiter urges you to take an inventory of all the ways (good and bad) that you identify with your kin. AUGUST: Be socially judicious. The ones who provide you with fun and games aren’t always good for you. SEPTEMBER: There are many who need you and that which only you can do. You’ll be inspired to sharpen your skills. OCTOBER: Your social life swirls with unfamiliar faces and adventures custom made for risk-takers like you. NOVEMBER: Instead of saying “I don’t know how to do it,” say “we’ll figure it out.” DECEMBER: A worthy adversary inspires your competitive spirit. Your well-invested earnings will multiply.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Capricorn actor Nicolas Cage went from selling popcorn in a movie theater to selling out box offices and winning an Academy Award. Capricorns tend to be career focused and highly driven. Like a true sea goat, and with Mercury and Mars in Capricorn, too, Cage will continue striving for his next award and artistic achievements no matter how successful he already is.
