Passionate fire-sign influences rule today and fuel hot ideas — many of which are just crazy enough to work. The Aries moon and the Leo sun are at the root of it, flickering with excitement and pumping the atmosphere full of bold energy. The only way to learn what’s possible is to give it a try, so be brave enough to follow through.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll retrace your steps and contemplate the past that brought you here. It’s a good place to visit, but don’t linger. Figure out what you need to do differently the next time and get back to the present action.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today’s gift from the cosmos will be an extra boost of charisma. You don’t wish to control anyone other than yourself, and yet you are such a powerful presence that you will gain admirers and followers.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). This isn’t a good day for borrowing or lending. How can you pull this one off using the resources that are already yours? You’ll have to get creative, but it can be done.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re easygoing and adaptable, so it may come as a surprise to you that some people get edgy when they are required to do something they didn’t have in mind. Model grace.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). True, there are more hospitable environs for growing your talents, but with a bit of determination you can make your current situation work. The first step is to carve out the time and hold it sacred.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can’t see the big picture of your own life, but you’ll look at the big picture of someone else’s life and get a feeling. There’s something about this scene that you want for yourself, too, and you’re headed in the right direction.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The group will solve the problem better than any individual in it would, as long as there’s a good leader at the helm. Note: The one in charge is the one people talk to, not the one doing all the talking.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who enjoy getting under your skin. You know who they are — the ones with their fingers on all of your emotional buttons. Your best reaction is not to react.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your vision is expanding. Go with the bigger version because you’re ready for it. As you go, you’ll attract other talented people who will help you exceed the previous limitations.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Follow your curiosities; they lead to finding new sources of love in your life. The old sources are good, too, and that’s what’s great about love: You can never have too much.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re always able to find something creative to do with your life; that’s not the issue. The ideas keep flowing, but which one is the best? Today, the best idea is the one you can complete before nightfall.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s a pulse of unfinished business that keeps you highly motivated. Maybe you won’t get to a satisfying ending today, but you’re close. Don’t give up.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 14). You ride in with a comfortable, confident feeling. Because you are not driven to prove your importance, people will feel an affinity for you, and they’ll promote you. By September, you’ll be making more money. November brings a different kind of business, and you’ll be traveling, too. Wedding bells ring in May. Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 23, 31, 25 and 1.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Here’s what happens when I go out on a date with my Aries boyfriend. He doesn’t open the door for me, he walks in front of me, and he talks about himself in nauseating detail for the rest of the night. What’s crazy is that my friends say he’s been like this the entire two years we’ve been dating, and I’m just now starting to notice. What’s even crazier is that I still want him to be my boyfriend. He’s cute, he has a good job, and I’d rather have a boyfriend than not have a boyfriend. What’s an Aquarius girl to do?”
An Aquarius girl is to say: Walk with me. Please open my door. Do you mind if I order before you? And by the way, listen to this story about what happened to me today… And if saying these things doesn’t help the situation with your headstrong Aries beau, an Aquarius girl is to dump him.
As for the business about preferring to have an ill-mannered boyfriend to having no boyfriend at all, an Aquarius girl is to make working on her self-esteem a top priority. Much good will come of it.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Jupiter Ascending” star Mila Kunis is enjoying the excitement of expecting her first child with Aquarius counterpart Ashton Kutcher. Leo is the sign of children, and having them can be extremely lucky for Leos on many levels, including professionally. Leos are playful by nature, and children tend to broaden their range into new levels of creativity.
