Chock Full o’ Transits

It’s one of the more eventful days of the year, and the transits keep coming, almost as though they are determined to outdo one another. Mars and Jupiter align, Venus slips into Virgo, the sun moves into Leo, and the moon reaches peak fullness in Aquarius. It’s the big-bang start of an action-packed adventure.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be exploring a territory without a map. This approach will give you the advantage of being free of other people’s opinions and perceptions. Without preconceived notions, you’ll see what’s really there.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your heart is big, but not every situation requires you to be overly giving. Business goes better when you tend to the deal and don’t get too wrapped up in the personal aspects.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Our senses break up the big picture into sizeable chunks we can understand. Try not to make assumptions based on one sensation, though, or you’ll be incorrect. Collect loads and loads of data. Bonus: You’ll feel more alive.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are ready for a new approach. Instead of treating the symptoms, go right to the source of the problem. There is an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) who can help you with this.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you know something in your gut, it is true more often than intellectual knowledge tends to be. Your “gut” hasn’t developed in such a way as to debate and doubt itself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do not discriminate against people because they are different from you. You see their similarities and try to relate and help however you can. However, this all changes if you don’t feel safe.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You like to save money, but today you’re in the mood to go even deeper with your bargain hunting. There are deals out there just begging to be hunted, and you’re the one to do it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll have a sense that a story isn’t adding up. Maybe this is even a story you tell yourself. Seek truth. Ask deeper questions. You’re willing to see more now, and so you will.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A remedy that doesn’t work for most people will work for you. You are among the small percentage of people who will actually follow the plan step by step until you see the results you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Wise people don’t draw attention to their own wisdom, nor do mighty people draw attention to their power. It takes a secure person to be humble. Trust the one who makes modest claims and over-delivers on them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are not completely satisfied in a relationship, but this may very well be what keeps you striving for a better connection. You’ll learn more and ultimately be happier because of the effort you make in this regard.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Bragging is unnecessary. Hold back, and one of two things will happen: Either a friend will sing your praises, or the person you’re talking to will discover your talent soon enough and be duly impressed.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 22). You’ll give your love unconditionally, and this will truly help someone else grow and blossom, which fulfills a deep sense of purpose in you. In August, you’ll put on a show, give a speech or be otherwise featured in the spotlight. September brings a rise up the ladder of status. A window of fun and romance opens in October. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 40, 1, 22 and 15.

DEVELOP YOUR INTUITION AQUARIUS: The second to the last sign of the zodiac is a social creature and duty-bound to connect with humanity in the style of the water-bearer symbol with which this sign is associated. It’s a life-fortifying, if not a lifesaving, role. And because Aquarius senses his or her importance to society, this sign is often not shy about sharing intuition in the form of social discourse. Aquarius quite naturally picks up on people’s moods and reflects them back as a way of inviting communion. But it goes deeper than that. Aquarius is known to make comments out of the blue that strike a chord of resonance in others. Aquarius will randomly choose conversational topics that are coincidentally what is on the mind, heart and schedule of another person, and/or bring up matters of uncanny coincidence. Aquarius will serendipitously run into just the person who would most benefit from the effervescent energy of this sign.

For Aquarius to maximize this gift, this sign must first acknowledge it and embrace the role of interdimensionality that Aquarius plays. Read about the collective unconscious, and study dreams and archetypes. Learn about channeling. Pursuing these areas of interest will quickly augment Aquarius’ intuitive talents.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Disney diva turned pop princess Selena Gomez is a soulful Cancer born on the cusp, when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in Leo, the sign of show business. It’s no wonder this talented moonchild has been working professionally since her childhood days of singing with Barney. Her Mars in Taurus shows a strong will and a hefty vocal talent.
