Public Service Announcement From the Leo Sun

The Leo sun suggests that confidence is a necessary success ingredient now. This isn’t true every day. There are many instances in which a lack of confidence can attract help and put you in a position to learn more. But today it’s not going to work unless you at least pretend to trust yourself. Own what you know, and move with certainty.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just because the world is round doesn’t mean it has no point. Wherever you go you’ll encounter purpose and meaning. You’ll be a different person at the end of the day than you were at the start of it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The grounded people will end up allowing the flighty people to be even less concerned about earthly matters. The question is, are you the dreamer or the doer today?

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be compassionate with your privileged friends. It is the hardest for people who have an easy life to be good and do the right thing. Exceptional character is formed through trial and tribulation.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When the old plan won’t work, the old pattern is no longer effective and the old you feels like a dry husk that you’re peeling out of, the only choice is to transform. The time has come for metamorphosis.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). To try and move an immovable object is foolish. Success depends on your ability to correctly identify the mobile and immobile parts of the problem. Hint: Usually the changeable parts are your own attitudes and intentions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Those who don’t appreciate what they have either have things that are totally mismatched to their personalities or are the type that will never appreciate anything. Find out which one it is before getting involved.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People only learn good habits by seeing them. You may become frustrated by someone’s behavior. Consider where this person is coming from. Gently get on his or her side — from that position you’ll have more influence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Environments have a way of bringing out the best or worst in a person. There’s a science to this. You know yourself well and have a good idea how different environments are likely to affect you, so wherever you go, go mindfully.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It can be very liberating to say, “This is out of my hands.” Control freaks can’t do it. You can, though — and you should try. Because to step aside, watch and learn for a while will ultimately help your position.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just because you can recognize and identify a mistake doesn’t mean you won’t make it again. The key is in finding something much better to take that mistake’s time slot.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Fun is not frivolous; it is generous. When you create fun times with your friends, you are also treating them to beautiful memories they may revel in later — the gift that keeps giving.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Anyone who says, “Don’t tell” to you today should really be saying, “Don’t do it” to themselves. If they don’t want anyone to know, it’s probably wrong. Avoid collusion.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 3). Moral issues and long-term goals will be on your mind as you head into this year. Your plans coincide neatly with those of another and together you’ll take on challenges you never would have been able to tackle alone. December and February bring funding. House renovation or a move is featured in April. Capricorn and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 34, 14, 37 and 11.

HOW TO PLEASE A PISCES: The Pisces in your life may appear easy to please, but appearances don’t always tell the whole story. Because Pisces has such a gift for reflecting others and modeling their likes and dislikes, it is actually hard to get past the social niceties and politeness to find out what truly pleases the fish. Here’s a hint to help matters: This artistic, empathetic, old soul resonates with ideas and things connected with mysticism and/or evoke a different time period. Has Pisces been alive many times? Many believe so. Either way, the intrigue of other eras is fascinating to Pisces.

Events in which Pisces is encouraged to dress up or just experience others in period costumes will be meaningful to Pisces, as will museum exhibits that feature historical pieces. Movies and theatrical presentations of past eras are also guaranteed to intrigue and relax Pisces. If giving jewelry or other gifts, consider purchasing vintage, retro or antique items.

Perhaps the most romantic gift you could give Pisces is a volume of an old, worn book, especially one of poetry. Write a message inside that’s guaranteed to intrigue whomever happens upon it long after this lifetime has ended.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Creative Leo Martha Stewart was born when the moon was in Sagittarius, the sign of sophistication and worldly influence, and Mercury, the planet of communication and day-to-day events, was in Cancer, the sign of domesticity. This is beautifully reflected in her life mission to bring new ideas, a fresh eye and all the passion of fiery Sagittarius into the homes of people everywhere.
