Uranus Acts Childishly

Uranus in hotheaded Aries is ready to emotionally erupt at the slightest provocation, and the other planets are like unruly siblings today: happy to oblige. There’s a secret to keeping your cool: Don’t take anything personally. When you leave your ego out of it, you’ll find no reason to take or offer offense.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Prove that you’re ready to take on a responsibility. The one who is in charge will gladly hand over the position to a worthy successor, but will be wary of anyone who seems unsure.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are determined and will finish the job whether or not you have the tools to do so. However, do everything in your power to acquire the tools, as things will go much better.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stress will only be uncomfortable if you interpret it as something you don’t want in your life. Consider the benefits. The pressure makes you perform better than you would otherwise.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re starting to see the past differently, and today’s events have you wondering about the extent of your karmic debt. Sure, you owe someone a good turn — but does it go deeper than that?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Can you give yourself what you want? Others make it look easy, but it’s not so easy for you. You would have to completely rearrange your priorities, putting yourself much higher on the list.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The work at hand is repetitious, and you may quickly tire of it. But if you can muscle through, you’ll be one of the rare ones who do, and you’ll reap tremendous benefits for your tenacity.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People need what you have to offer, so let everyone know what it is. Encourage your contacts to tell their contacts. Give people an incentive to spread the word.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Be careful not to reject who you are just because you’d like to grow into a new role. It still will be the same you underneath, and that person deserves honor and respect.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). They can’t read your mind accurately today, but they sure will come up with some interesting inaccuracies. Consider staying mysterious just so you can laugh at their funny guesses about what you’re really up to!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Do what you can. If it’s not what you wanted to be doing or what you think you should be doing, so what? It’s something, and it will create the momentum that gets you back on track.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Others may be fooled by pretty packaging, but you’re impressed only by substance. That’s why you’ll kick the proverbial tires and check under the hood, too.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just because you love someone doesn’t mean you have to completely ignore it when that person behaves like a selfish narcissist. You’re not about to let yourself be used.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 29). Your perspective shift makes it seem like the whole world has changed. Social horizons open, and you’ll enjoy interesting new company. Your mind’s eye is extra powerful in January and March: What pops into your imagination will come true. Financial odds favor you in February. July features a real estate purchase. Leo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 3, 28 and 11.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The new year opens under a new moon — an auspicious omen, especially for those hoping to make big changes in 2014. With the outer planets settling into a groove that’s similar to last year’s, the backdrop will seem awfully familiar, but don’t believe for a second that the same environment will yield similar results. If you’ve ever known a family in which siblings of the same parentage are completely different from one another — even the ones that happen to be twins — you know that personality, will and countless other variables make for an entirely different outcome. As for 2014, the difference is mainly in our intentions.

Capricorn rubs Venus the wrong way, and to make matters even more uncomfortable, the love goddess’s retrograde motion through this realm has her assessing the historical data instead of connecting to the moment. Since Jupiter is retrograde, too, many will be looking at the things that created lucky and safe feelings in the past for hints as to what might work in the future. Be patient. The answers won’t be obvious, but keep collecting data, and next week will bring a breakthrough.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Will Ferrell discovered Danny McBride when the comedy king saw McBride in the shoestring-budget comedy “The Foot Fist Way.” The “Eastbound and Down” star has a full lineup of movies coming out in the years to come, including the next Cameron Crowe project. His sun and Mercury in Capricorn indicates that McBride is much more strategic and down to earth than Kenny Powers!
