Pisces Moon and Neptune
The Pisces moon sings to Neptune in the same sign like a mermaid singing to her prince. On Wednesday, Neptune, the ruler of dreams, will heed the call and do an about-face ending his retrograde cycle in Pisces. But for now, Neptune listens without response. It may seem that your fond dreams linger in the air, wondering where to land.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your priorities will be established either consciously or unconsciously — your choice. If you consciously shuffle things, a new order will emerge. If you act unconsciously, the order will be the same as yesterday.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Two heads may be better than one, but four hands will be two too many. Consult someone for ideas, but do the work yourself, or things will take much more time and not be quite right in the end.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be drawn to a pretty presentation, but buyer beware. Bright colors and an attractive font might be slapped onto inferior ingredients. Do the deeper research.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). What is the worst job, and what is the best job? Who is really in charge? To an inexperienced or unwise person, the hierarchy of things can be very deceiving. You understand power better than the others now, so help them out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s your lucky shopping day. You can pay a lot or a little, depending on what you look for. If you look for deals and bargains, you will find them, and the products themselves won’t be so different from the higher priced items.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The task on the table will be like going back to a century-old photo and digitally colorizing it to look like it’s from this era — something will be gained, but something will be lost. Is the result really worth the effort?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). This typically happens in the opposite order, but right now a window is closing and a door is opening. So when you see the small opportunity get smaller, hold on tight because something bigger is on the way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not feel like you’re stronger than any other person, but your purpose is clear, important and possibly even urgent. That’s what makes you stronger.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A person who has a positive way of framing a negative situation is either extremely helpful or delusional. Either way, you’ll be inspired to action by such a person, and you’ll make a difference.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your flaws are not only endearing, but without them, people wouldn’t be able to relate to you as well. In fact, there’s someone around you now who is in love with the very thing you don’t like about yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Style does matter, and your particular style will make a difference in how your ideas are received. And yet, what matters most is substance. It’s better to have a plain something than a fancy nothing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have to step onto a podium to be a leader. You prove this today as you assign roles and duties if not outright then implicitly by stating your different needs to different people.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 11). You’ll attain a high-level position of power and control this year, and using your influence for good will be a top priority. December is an excellent time for sales, a car purchase and developing mechanical or technical skills. In February, your social life sings. A promise in April will turn into a June adventure. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 20, 6, 25 and 33.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a 41-year-old Gemini. For a while, I thought I was having a midlife crisis, but now I think the real problem is that I no longer identify with my chosen roles in life. I love my husband and three boys, and yet being someone’s wife and someone’s mother is not how I think of myself inside my own head. I’m still me in here, but it’s not reflected in anything I do. I seem to be in a support position from the moment I wake up until the moment my head hits the pillow at night. Lately, I dream quite a lot about taking an extended vacation all by myself. Any advice?”
The roles of wife and mother are so ingrained in our culture that we mistakenly believe we will naturally transform when the time comes, like a caterpillar metamorphosing into a butterfly. But it’s not like that. We stay caterpillars, and if we want to fly, we have to find some wings and flap them like crazy. It’s work, and it’s often challenging on many levels and unacknowledged, to boot. A solo vacation may sound unconventional, but what would be so wrong about taking an extended vacation by yourself? It would be just like you, Gemini, to start a trend.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Leonardo DiCaprio teams up for a fifth time with Martin Scorsese for “The Wolf of Wall Street,” a film about rogue trader Jordan Belfort. This Scorpio was born when four luminaries were in Scorpio, signifying a highly intuitive nature that he relies on for both professional and personal decision making. His moon, Uranus and Pluto all in Libra suggests DiCaprio values relationships over other riches.
