Sun Squares Mars and Uranus

While the sun is at a tense angle to Mars and Uranus, you can avoid negative consequences simply by being tolerant. No one likes to feel pressured to believe what they don’t believe. No one enjoys the sneaking suspicion that it would be more convenient for the world if they were someone else. Where free will is threatened, no one thrives.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If one person in your household is working less diligently than the others, it will cause tension. If you live alone, the tension might be caused by a loved one you sometimes compare yourself to.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re careful not to waste time, especially not the time of a total stranger. When dealing with the public, you’ll be even more organized, purposeful and efficient than usual.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be rooting for someone who perhaps isn’t capable of doing the thing that needs to be done, but your hope and encouragement will lift this person to new levels of accomplishment.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everybody wants something. Start with the people who want something small and easy to accommodate, like a glass of water. It will feel good to satisfy such needs, and this will prepare you for a bigger game.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People will reveal their character to you; you just have to know what to listen for. Something you hear won’t sit right with you. You may not know why, but your feeling is correct. Act on it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t want to push the ones you love into uncomfortable areas, but you have to. Who is going to help them find out what they are made of if you don’t?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Be careful not to waste time wishing things were different than they are. Instead, note that you might prefer something different, and then get to work creating it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you do today you do specifically to please one person, and that’s what makes your actions so interesting and meaningful. So what if that one person happens to be you? You deserve it!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Smart people may point out the inaccuracies they witness or argue fine points, but wise people know what to overlook. You are both smart and wise, so you make internal notes, not public remarks.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Things go well until it is time to say goodbye. People seem to hate leaving you, but you have a schedule to keep, too, so don’t let the goodbyes drag on.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Afraid of their own judgment, many people will work hard to avoid being alone. You, on the other hand, rather enjoy the self-reflection that comes when there is no one else to reflect off of.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll smooth things over socially. You sense what people long to hear and will express it beautifully. You don’t mind at all, especially since today it happens also to be the truth.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 2). Your calm demeanor makes you well suited to a pressurized situation. Career: You’ll have early success with very little training, but do catch up on studies in March so you can take advantage of an opportunity to progress. You’ll save the day for someone in June. August shows you arm in arm with a constant companion. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 3, 33, 28 and 9.

NEW YEAR, NEW CANCER: With the auspicious omen of the new moon on the first day of the new year, those who want to make big changes will be cosmically empowered to do so. Cancer will be inclined to apply the makeover energy to the creative realm. It’s a year in which Cancer is ready to develop talents through practice and play. Cancer is interested in building what delights the mind and engages the senses. The creative spirit could be expressed in countless ways, including but not limited to the arts and sciences, childrearing and homebuilding.

In the months to come, Cancer will learn new rules of creativity. The first step is in collecting inspiration. The works that light up Cancer’s enthusiasm will serve as beacons to guide Cancer’s own work, which may in the beginning be derivative. The imitative phase is a natural and necessary part of development, and Cancer benefits from taking a nonjudgmental stance in regard to his or her own work, especially in the early stages of learning. Also, it is important to protect early works from critical people and forums until such assessments can be helpful to learning.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: British author, poet and professor J.R.R. Tolkien saw many of his friends perish in WWI, and out of his firsthand knowledge of war’s evils, he created the epic mythological battles in “The Lord of the Rings” and other works. Tolkien was born when the sun and Mercury were in ambitious Capricorn and the moon and Venus were in altruistic, philanthropic Aquarius.
