Just when the tension between Mars and Jupiter eases, Venus decides it’s her turn to stir up trouble. The love goddess gracefully leaping through Libra opposes volatile Uranus in Aries. This puts an exciting twist in the romantic plot, which might even be construed as interesting and steamy. The opposition lasts until November 4.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Make a list of the special days coming up, and start brainstorming about your wishes for those times. Getting organized now will make your holidays much, much brighter.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in an unusually touchy-feely mood. You’ll use the power of contact to promote good will, make an impression and set a tone for relationships. Your warmth and hugs will be most appreciated at the end of the day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Insecurity is a repellant. In all you approach today, whether it’s a date, a business meeting or a parent-teacher conference, check your insecurity at the door. Choose confidence.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People get you immediately. Similar to the way in which a big, comfy chair says “relax” and a billboard says “read me,” you make a clear statement today by just being you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your goal doesn’t always have to be a driving passion. Sometimes you just want to sit with someone you care about, tell jokes and visit awhile. You’ll aim for simple connection and land at happiness.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll have a reason to toast this evening. Whatever your beverage of choice, raise a glass of it, convey your admiration and/or good news aloud, and then drink to it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Bonding with a friend doesn’t require that you share a profound happening or commit to a passionate cause together. But it does take focused attention for a certain amount of time, which is exactly what you have to give.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It would be impossible to solve the world’s problems in a day. But you’ll feel so clever and able now that it seems you might be able to swing it in about a day and a half.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Doing what’s expected of you will earn you more of the usual requests. Doing the unexpected leads to an entirely different kind of response. Capitalize on your uniqueness.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your ambition is usually a fine quality, but you’ll do well to curb it today. Small aims that you complete in a timely manner will build trust in you. Others will feel safe and won’t consider you a threat.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A disagreement about money or possessions will get resolved. As soon as it’s handled, you’ll move on to the fun of planning upcoming travel and adventure.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Anyone can buy a rose, but you offer a loved one something that only you could give. Your romantic life thrives when you dare to apply your abundant creativity to making your partner happy.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 1). A romantic encounter leads to adventure at the start of your new year. Travel over the next two months leads to work and a new interest. A family member’s good fortune will spill over to you in January, and you’ll bring some benefits of your own to the group in May. Competition spurs you to new heights in February. Aries and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 2, 19 and 11.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Please tell me about my new baby Scorpio! She is wonderful — literally. I just look at her and am filled with admiration and awe.”
Congratulations! These early insights about your baby are fitting because Scorpio babies have a way of opening our eyes to the mysterious and miraculous nature of daily life. Born in the sign of deeper meaning, they remind us that there is always more at work under the surface of things. As she grows and seeks to understand the world, everyone around your Scorpio will come to appreciate it on a more meaningful level. Your baby Scorpio’s fascination with the physics and biology of ordinary things will inspire you to see beyond petty concerns and temporal problems and accept the gift of the moment.
All humans grow, but Scorpios have a tendency to astound those around them with each new transformation. One of Scorpio’s many symbols is the mystical Phoenix: the bird who rises from the ashes. And so this child shares her native regenerative force with family, revitalizing broken hearts, renewing tired spirits and encouraging a sort of rebirth for all who love and care for your Scorpio baby.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Peter Jackson will continue his reign as a hit-making fantasy filmmaker with the upcoming “Hobbit” trilogy beginning with “The Hobbitt: An Unexpected Journey.” Jackson is a Scorpio with Mars and Neptune in Scorpio, as well — all energies associated with mystery and magic. His moon and Uranus in entertaining Leo lends an edge for show-business success.
