Cancer Sun’s Last Day

This is the calm before the storm. Tomorrow brings new energy to the party with the creative and fanciful Leo sun and an unpredictable Aquarius full moon. Our heads are already filling with colorful notions tinged with a glimmer of drama that will make life seem downright cinematic. If your life were a movie, how would the plot go from here?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of pining over what you might have been able to do had you had the means, take advantage of the many offerings available. Free public happenings are exceptionally lucky for you now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The special project on deck feels like something out of your school days, with reports, displays and even accompanying food items. You’ll have fun with this one as long as you don’t wait until the last minute.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It takes a special kind of strength and restraint to look for the humor in the situation. You possess this sort of grace and will make yourself and others laugh today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll do some fine-tuning of your image. Attention to the details brings social success, not because it makes such a big change in the way people see you, but because it makes you feel more confident.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a nice way of putting things. For instance, your tact may lead you to label a scene “visually eclectic” instead of “a crazy mess.” Because you’re so positive, you’ll think of solutions that wouldn’t dawn on anyone else.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Spontaneous acts give life meaning. That’s when you feel the most like you, when you’re doing what nobody expected. When they tilt their heads questioningly, you know you’ve caused the whole world to shift because you are in it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Thinking of the future gives you pleasure. You’ve turned the exercise into a kind of escape fantasy, but that’s not to say this future reality of your dreams isn’t possible. Just don’t forget to act and make it real.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Relationships have a lot to teach you, though some of the lessons won’t be obvious to you for many years. That’s why it will help you to write down some of the details about what’s going on in your personal life these days.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People who’ve had accidents or near misses often describe themselves as “lucky to be alive.” You don’t need the contrast, though. Today you just naturally have that uplifting feeling that life is good.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Keep your eyes on what’s ahead of you. You won’t turn into a pillar of salt if you look backward, but you might become frozen in other ways. When moving, it’s best to look where you’re going, not where you’ve been.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Transformations do happen, but they only stick when they are self-motivated and self-created. So don’t try to change another person. Put that energy into becoming who you want to be.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re very clever in your ability to consider everyone’s wishes and come up with a solution that will suit all. You’ll have to sell it, though. Think about your pitch before you make it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 21). You don’t know the path, but if you start the journey anyway, fate conspires to take you to a beautiful destination. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” August brings a cash payout. You’ll be promoted in October. September and January are romantic. Capricorn and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 21, 14, 38 and 3.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The last day of the Cancer sun is contemplative and will run the emotional gamut. Like the ocean that produces the crab, the Cancer sun is always changing moods. The tides roll in and out, the color of the water changes with the sky, and what’s happening on the surface may be entirely different from the current that’s just below. The past few days have been rather mysterious and unpredictable, but tomorrow begins a new course. Events will seem heightened in tone, and yet like an effective movie plot, there is an air of familiarity to the way things unfold, as though a formula is being skillfully applied. This structure allows for us, the actors in this scene, to loosen up, use our imaginations and engage our sense of play. Why should children have all the fun?

On Monday, Jupiter and Mars align to endow a few lucky souls with some powerful good fortune — the kind that gets quickly spread around. One man’s bounty becomes another man’s pay raise. The next move comes from Lady Venus, who nestles into Virgo. Love leans toward wholesome intent. Then the sun glides into Leo, and the moon reaches peak fullness in Aquarius releasing social and creative impulses.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Brilliant comedian and actor Robin Williams stars in the upcoming comedy “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn,” a film about a man trying to decide what to do with the final moments of his life. As an intuitive Cancer with Mars and Uranus in Cancer, as well, and a psychic Pisces moon, Williams’ chart reveals a man who does as he feels and is always intensely and creatively connected to the moment.
