Piscean Poetry Abounds

If you were a poem, how would you read? A staccato rap? A romantic rhyme carried by languorous vowels? A funny haiku? As planets gather in Pisces to emphasize the poetic nature of life, you may consider scribbling a few lines down to help you capture the feeling of this time. Saturn and Jupiter angle supportively like strong wings.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you’re not sure whether you can make a situation better, at least make it more memorable. It’s not always clear how to steer a scene in a positive direction, but you have a good idea of how to turn up the general intensity.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The ebb and flow of energy is inconstant. You may go from being tired to having more energy than you know what to do with. And tonight you’ll be awakened by your own interesting thoughts.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve been playing it rather low-key. No one is waiting for you to come up with answers, which increases the likelihood that you’ll surprise and delight with your off-the-wall, out-of-the-blue solutions.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Feeling good about your place will depend on your ability to relate to those around you. If you can’t relate, you can’t relax. So the energy you put into listening to and creating rapport with your “people” will be well spent.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your time is priceless. If you could put a price tag on it, there are many who wouldn’t be able to afford it. So you’re not about to just give it away to unworthy endeavors. You’ll be exceptionally choosy, which is wise.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you succeed at something that doesn’t matter to you, whose success is it? You need time to yourself so you can sort out what really counts in your mind, heart and world.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You trust the strong, silent type. Quiet people around you know more than they let on. The smart ones won’t broadcast the fallacies of others or spout off all the information they know.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be moved by what you witness. A sad smile or the kind gesture of a lonely person puts you in touch with your own humanity. We need each other; that much is clear.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know that life is what you make of it, but it’s not like you can stay in constant production, either. You need to rest, too, especially after endeavors that required intense focus.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Perhaps there’s not a lot you can control in terms of what happens in another person’s life, but to the extent that you can have an effect, you will. And today, you’ll invest a good amount of time in the welfare of others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t take your associations lightly. But once you decide that you are ideologically aligned with a group of people, you’ll be quick to join in their activities, share in their laughter and work toward their goal.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You believe in free speech, but that doesn’t mean you have to listen to all that’s projected in your direction. Besides, some opinions are toxic. Put your filters up, and be ready to run to your own quiet sanctuary for refuge.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 2). You can do anything, but you have to decide. Formulate several possible long-term plans; think of it as an exercise in alternative realities. Then in April, commit with your whole being to one of them. Magic touches you now, in June and in October. Mergers happen in May. Financial help comes in June. Get to the bottom of a mystery in July. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 23, 49, 38 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Is it worth it for me to go back to school to learn a trade? I’m almost 45 years old. Isn’t that a little late to start a new kind of employment? I’m a Scorpio. I want to learn audio engineering and graphic design, and I can’t decide which. I’m also interested in medical technology.”

It’s never to late to reinvent yourself, especially if you are a Scorpio, which happens to be the sign of reinvention. Your talent for transformation makes your age irrelevant. But since you tend to change rather completely, you should choose your next incarnation with great care. A combination of research and intuition will be necessary to make choices you’ll be happy with later.

Astrologically speaking, medicine is the most auspicious for Scorpios, as your sign has a talent for the healing arts. Your fascination with the way things work extends naturally to the human body, and you have a unique sense for science, seeing it not only as a systematic study but also as a grand adventure into the mysteries of the universe.

As for your other choices, I firmly believe you can do whatever you set your mind to and should follow your strongest convictions.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: More than a decade since his passing, the works of the inimitable artist and author Dr. Seuss are enjoyed by more children than ever around the world and in a variety of media styles. Theodor Seuss Geisel, a soulful Pisces, was born when Mercury, Venus and Saturn were in whimsical Aquarius. His playful spirit continues to promote peace and understanding in an age of complexity.
