Trine of the Sun and Pluto
The sun and Pluto angle to bring harmony even to the most complicated of scenarios. If you don’t think about it too much and instead relax and feel your way through, you’ll realize it’s not necessary to sort through all of the facts and reconcile all of the discrepancies. The bottom line is acceptance.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some people create with their hands, others with their bodies, voices and ideas. There are also those who create by building a rich inner life. Their character is their art. You’ll fall into that category today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You already realize that trying to keep track of what you did and what the other person did and who did more or less of what will only cheapen the value of your relationship. And yet, the score is uneven…
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When your body isn’t looking, your mind flees to a fantasy world from an earlier time. As lovely as this adventure may be, your drive to escape is a sign that your current surroundings aren’t optimal.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sticking rigidly to your principles might serve you well on some days, and on other days (like today), it could lose you friends and supporters. But don’t worry. You can soften your message without softening your view.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instead of forcing your views, make room for people to form their own. Don’t bother to explain yourself. When you do the right thing, the ones who did wrong will understand what they did.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do all you can, and that’s all you can do. Luck plays a part after that. She’ll start by striking up a conversation with you. Listen to what she tells you. Luck likes a good listener.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not afraid to say anything that needs to be said, and yet you are mindful of other people’s feelings. You’ll thoughtfully decide on the right approach. You have a gift for perfect timing and wording.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll find that you’ve hit the point where socializing has become tedious, especially because the same people are always involved. Break into a new circle to get fresh energy flowing through your personal life.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). What if you found out that the person you want to be is actually who you are now? Would it make you do less or more? Assume that you’re already “there,” and act accordingly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your best teachers, for better or worse, are those who are close to you. Both your neighbors and your enemies are worthy of your utmost consideration. By the way, they are probably one and the same person.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re ever aware that the way people talk communicates more than the words they use. That’s why you’ll respond to the tone of your loved one’s mood and ignore the verbiage.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The fact is that trusting a person doesn’t make that person trustworthy, but it’s a start. You’re willing to take a risk and hope for the best. Your leap of faith will inspire a person to deliver.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 1). The observer in you gathers knowledge and collects beauty until the perfect moment to act. The pleasant floating feeling of September will be followed by a flurry of exciting business in October. November heals relationships, and there will be a move, too. January and June are the best months financially. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 9, 14, 8 and 50.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: This week has two distinct tones. The start of the week feels like a wrap-up: Goodbyes will be said (or more likely it’s just “goodbye for now”), loose ends get tied and a cleanup effort will put a bow on the past four weeks. Tuesday is ideal for reflecting on what worked and what didn’t. Wednesday is perfect for setting new intentions. All begins anew with the new moon in Virgo on Thursday, September 5th.
The focus of the Virgo new moon is on our health and well-being. A caution under the detail-oriented Virgo influence is not to go overboard by considering too many variables, working too hard or trying too many new things at once. Before you run off to the health food store and open your wallet, address the basics, the same elements that support all of the other living things on Earth: air, water, food and light. It’s amazing the positive difference that can happen just by getting those right. Next, consider that undervalued health-enhancer called sleep. Getting enough of it will prevent you from falling prey to the vicious cycle of artificial energy manipulators like caffeine, alcohol and any number of other products designed to deliver a desired mood.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to Disney star Zendaya Coleman, who started acting in Shakespeare and now dances to hip hop in the series “Shake It Up.” Born under a fiery Aries moon, this hardworking Virgo has a seemingly boundless energy supply that she uses to write books, record records, create fashion and compete in dance competitions like “Dancing with the Stars.”
