Mars Dips Into Cancer

Mars likes excitement, and Cancer craves comfort and security. Mars dips a toe into the ocean of Cancer today, and the crab won’t be able to resist taking a pinch. After the initial discomfort of this transit, which lasts until August 27, Mars will settle in and do some serious work around the domestic scene.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re organized and prepared, and your goals are well defined. A self-fulfilling prophecy will come into play, so be sure to prophesy only the best for yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a tendency to overdramatize the importance of social interactions, especially involving unfamiliar people, and mistakes will feel huge. But they are not. In fact, they hardly matter at all.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Success comes from managing expectations for yourself and others, especially children and family members. Your ability to accurately frame events to come will prevent frustration and disappointment.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have mingling mojo, and you’ll use it to your benefit in today’s unfamiliar territory. Knowing when and how much to reveal about yourself is an expertise you’ll lean on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re gifted in the beauty department, but you can’t rely on your looks for today’s challenge. Beauty loses its power when it becomes too familiar. Be strategic and surprising, and you’ll succeed.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Get beyond worrying about how others see you. Does it really matter? Even if it does, your intention matters more. And if your intention is to love people and have some fun, that becomes the most noticeable thing about you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You know better than to let certain people disappoint you. You’ll make sure they don’t have this power by remembering the patterns of the past and adjusting your expectations.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re a risk taker. Your skills allow you to be daring. A slippery slope can actually be a lot of fun if you think you can get down without breaking anything.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The vision has yet to be actualized. For a project to come to life, you must break through the inertia that is holding it back. Imagination, creativity and artistry are required.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Mundane details aren’t inherently scary, but you fear them for what they represent: deadly boredom! Get help with the more rudimentary tasks, or your enthusiasm will dip severely.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll win by keeping it simple. Like a slow-loading website with too many videos, if you try too desperately to entertain, people will sense the complications, get tired of waiting for something real to happen and leave.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a high regard for tradition, but you never honor it completely “as-is.” You’re compelled to put your own twist on the tried-and-true plan, creating an even more satisfying ritual.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 13). You’ll be struck with inspiration — a picture of how you want your life to be — and a plan emerges this month to make it so. A friend will rise to the occasion, providing just what you need. August is a game changer, as a new responsibility brings fresh purpose. Your financial picture improves because of work you do in September. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 24, 38, 2 and 19.

DEVELOP YOUR INTUITION, LEO: Imagination is your playground — and playgrounds are also your playground. You never lost the childlike instinct to go down the slide or swing as high as you can. Additionally, you possess that cat-like ability to turn any ordinary thing into a toy. It all factors into your insatiable need for play. And if you get enough of it, your intuition will be released.

Sometimes in a daydream a prescient image will pop to mind that later becomes reality. So, how do you know the difference between psychic visions and just plain making stuff up? Indeed, these two states of mind are closely linked and sometimes overlap. This is why fiction writers and film directors often create art that later becomes reality. Is life imitating art, or is the art a window into future life? The result is the same, so does it really matter?

Using your imagination and the spirit of play, you create bonds, build your world and form a legacy that will live beyond you. These might not strike you as particularly intuitive processes, but the improvisational spirit of play is definitely entwined in the mysterious magic of intuition.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Writer/director Cameron Crowe is a sensitive Cancer who brings the worlds of his mind alive on the big screen for others to enjoy. From “Say Anything” to “Almost Famous” and “We Bought a Zoo,” it’s easy to sense the romance that lives inside this visionary artist’s heart. This Cancer director has five planets in Leo, the sign of entertainment.
