The Benefit of Arguing Planets

Mercury and Pluto cannot seem to come to an agreement today. Is their agreement necessary for things to move ahead, though? No way. Everyone knows that the best collaborations are fraught with tension. Our differences make us stronger, as long as we try to hear each other out and learn something.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are times when you have succeeded because of something outside of yourself working in your favor. Right now your success depends on your inside game: how you talk to yourself and how you react to your own thoughts.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your abilities are strong, but you may still find yourself unmatched for the difficult task at hand. It’s the perfect excuse to ask for help. Get a group together and work like a team.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A certain someone captures your attention. You can’t help but think you would know more about the world if you were to spend time with this person. Your curiosity could develop into attraction.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The abrupt changes you must react to today will serve to heighten your awareness and dial in your senses.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your creative, ambitious mind sometimes interferes with your ability to come up with appropriate goals. The ideal goal for you is personally meaningful, probable and yet still uncertain.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Anyone can say thank you, but you find a way to do it that sends the message straight to the heart. Your unusual expression of gratitude will be remembered and emulated.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are receptive to joy in its minute forms now, so it’s not surprising that you feel fulfilled by ordinary gestures and everyday niceties. As the day progresses, you become increasingly engaged with your surroundings.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be like a solvent for people who are stuck in their ways. You have a way of softening others, lulling them to let down their defenses and relax into the possibilities.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People who don’t think about the risks are not as brave as those who consider the possible dangers and go ahead anyway. You belong in the second category now, as you move forward, eyes wide open.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Think ahead, make a plan, and hold your dearest intentions at the forefront of your mind. This is what it will take to make the opportunities you desire open before you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be a leader for newbies. Probably the territory you navigate is just as unfamiliar to you as it is to the others, but you don’t act like this is the case. Your calm demeanor makes others feel safe.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can’t react to everything — or rather, you could, but it would be both exhausting and unwise. You’ll deftly discern between what deserves your tolerance and what requires your response.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 21). In the next six weeks, you turn odd circumstances into incredible luck. Just when you thought you were fully grown, your heart goes up a few sizes. The unusual relationships you form have a way of stretching your capacity to love and be loved. A deal closes in August, and you have money for adventuring. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 36, 5, 32 and 20.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Mercury is like a charming child who turns into a pest when he doesn’t get his way. Last week he started in on Uranus, and this week he nags Pluto. The stronger distant luminaries will hold firm like good parents, and Mercury will soon forget what he wanted or move on to more appropriate activities. But what does that mean to you? It depends on how you relate to this cosmic tale. Are you the impulsive child who can’t move forward without the resources or permission or your guardian? Do your requests fall on deaf ears, or are they consistently declined? If so, you’d be wise to step back and assess the situation from another perspective. There may be a more appropriate goal for you, or maybe you’re better off working quietly on something else until more favorable circumstances arise. If you relate more to the parent being pestered, the message is to stay strong in your stance. Don’t be swayed by immature and petty demands, or you’ll train the world to pester you until you eventually cave to its requests. Patiently stand firm, noting that “this too shall pass.” The action will continue to accelerate toward the full moon and the Scorpio lunar eclipse on the 25th.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Whether conquering the supernatural realm of the X-Men or the mystical land of Narnia, James McAvoy plays his part with such conviction that the audience can easily adventure with him through the alternate reality. This Scottish actor is a grounded Taurus born when Venus was in ethereal Pisces, which is a combination that suggests one foot in this world and the other in the world of imagination.
