Venus Squares Uranus

Contrary to what we learn in the movies, romantic love isn’t for everyone. There are those who place a higher value elsewhere: spiritual development, artistic mastery, the attainment of wealth and other life purposes. Venus in Capricorn squared off with Uranus in Aries challenges us to honor those with a different life emphasis.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe it’s because you’ve been so effective at this in the past, but today it’s as though everyone is coming to you with the same imperative: “Make me feel important!” Rest assured, you’ll get something out of it, too.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your wonderfully functioning brain has developed a number of ways to help you manage. Some of those ways no longer suit you, but you are not your brain’s habits! Separate the two and stop feeling guilty, and change will be easier.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those who think charm is about saying astute, adorable or funny things have it all wrong. You know the secret: Charm is the art of making other people feel pumped up, usually because you listened to them.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s something on the table to be won by the person who can make the best case for it. Examine this prize carefully, though. It may not be worthwhile. Perhaps the real winner of the argument will be the one who walks away.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be unflappable and accepting of others. This takes confidence and is only possible because you feel that if you really need to defend yourself, it will be easy for you to do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you want your time and attention to be your own today, try to listen for where conversations are headed and get out while the getting’s good. Otherwise, you’ll be on the receiving end of a long, boring story about nothing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In days of old, life was hard until it got harder. Children worked, everyone struggled to eat, and life was a daily battle. Comparatively, life now is pretty good for a lot of people. That’s why you don’t feel inclined to put up with whining in any form.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those who have nothing to say but say it anyway will make whimsical connections that over the course of time may prove more meaningful than you might have expected. So listen to everyone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take time off from that ambitious project you’ve been working on to accomplish a simple, small task. The minor win you experience will give you fresh energy for when you return to your mountainous endeavor tomorrow.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some believe that giving children too many things robs them of their creativity. Today it may feel as though you have too many resources to be creative. What would you do if you had less? How would you make due?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Usually, it’s important to make your deal before you start doing the work. But in today’s case, you would be wise to do a small chunk of the work before you make a deal so you better understand all that’s involved in this job.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s better to contribute meaningful, useful work to the world and not be famous than to be famous and make headlines for doing ordinary things that other people do every day.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 14). Think of yourself as having plenty of time and freedom. You can afford to experiment, and it makes your life richer and more interesting to do so. New friends next month fit in beautifully with the old. Affections develop fast and run deep. There are windfalls in January and July. September brings a move. Libra and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 22, 37 and 41.

WILLPOWER FOR SENSITIVE PEOPLE: In response to yesterday’s sensitive Pisces wishing for willpower: Think of your willpower as a powerful potion in a bottle. Awakening from a restful night, your bottle is filled to the top. As your day progresses, everything that requires mental and emotional energy requires a few drops of your potion. Navigating traffic, answering to the boss, arguing with a loved one, reading instructions, saying the right thing to a client, shopping, tending to a friend’s needs, solving a technical glitch — all of these things use drops of your willpower potion. Stress tips the willpower bottle upside down. So does getting upset. So does dieting.

Highly sensitive people find that their reserves of self-control disappear more quickly than those of less sensitive people. That’s because the experience of processing intense feelings and engaging in deep thought processes uses many drops. Also, sensitive people spend more energy holding emotions at bay than do other people, knowing that if they showed the full range of their feelings, it would be socially off-putting. After expending all of their willpower on acting appropriately, they are more likely to indulge in the behaviors that bring them comfort, pleasure or numbness. More on this on Saturday.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: From “Seinfeld” to “Rules of Engagement,” Patrick Warburton’s comedic voice is as deep as it is unique. That’s why his voiceover work in “Family Guy,” “The Penguins of Madagascar” and more is highly identifiable. Scorpios like Warburton love the freedom that comes with voicing animated characters, and they consider not being visible on-screen a privacy perk in an otherwise public job.
