The trine of Saturn and Neptune has a way of harmonizing our limitations with our opportunities. In most cases, it will be the limitations that allow us to achieve what we dream about, though it’s the opportunities that get all the credit. Opportunity is like an open door and doesn’t deserve to be credited for the person who walks through.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be in the mood for rule breaking, and not out of a sense of entitlement, but because you feel seized by an adventurous hunger. The way you break the rules inspires potential rule enforcers to turn a blind eye.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do not fear being a leader. You will be one whether you fear it or not, so you may as well decide to focus on doing what needs to be done and let go of the rest.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). New resources open up. Someone shares all that’s in his heart. Animals show an affinity for you. The myriad randomness you encounter has one thing in common: It all seems designed to please you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will be drawn to those with a different moral standard from your own. The advice of a somewhat devious friend is actionable, but take action at your own risk.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Understand that the authority figure in a situation needs to feel superior. Be careful not to upset the balance of power. You’re wise to display your talents only as they relate to the situation at hand.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll exercise your individuality and recognize how it fits and doesn’t fit into the organized systems of the world. There’s no need to conform your unique view at this time.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone you admire is accessible to you. If you know specifically what you want and what you can give, reach out and make yourself known. Accomplished individuals will give you humble assistance.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The beautiful part of being a water sign is that you find it easy to accept that everything changes, and like water, you flow with it. Today you’ll find the inner serenity of a placid lake.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s likely that someone around you is behaving like a proud peacock in order to impress you. The bright plumage, puffed up and fanned out, does make quite a statement.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s been said that tragedy plus time equals comedy. It doesn’t always ring true, but today something that once bothered you a great deal will now seem downright hilarious.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Novel problems call for novel solutions. Your fresh approach and unrelenting originality could save the day. Work with those who are likely to bring a practical advantage.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is a thin line between helping people and controlling people. You’ll be aware of this and careful to stay within your boundary. You’ll be even more careful not to let another person give help you don’t need.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 11). Many preach the need for change, but you’re the bold one who actually does it. You’ll solve a strange puzzle next month. You’ll be proud of what you decide or create in December. Financially, things pick up in January, and July brings another high. You’ll take on a new position in February. Sagittarius and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 33, 21 and 45.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Do you believe in affirmations? What are they exactly? Do they work? If so, what affirmations would help an Aries like me?”

Affirmations are a style of self-talk used as a communication bridge between the conscious mind and the subconscious. The goal of affirmations is to impress upon the subconscious mind the messages it would need to believe in order for an individual to achieve a desired result. Whether affirmations work or not depends largely on whether you believe they will, as well as the intensity and frequency with which they are used. The three times of day that pack the most power into your affirmations are before you fall asleep, right after you wake up and during meditation. An effective affirmation for Aries will change as your needs and circumstances change. Finding the best affirmation for the moment is as easy as naming your most pressing problem or dissatisfaction within yourself and creating an affirmation to counteract it. For instance, if you, like many Aries people, are working too hard and stressed out, a good affirmation might be: “I only take on what I can comfortably, happily handle,” or “I have a light heart and laugh often,” or “My perspective keeps me positive.”

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Gossip Girl’s” Michelle Trachtenberg got her start in show business at the age of 3. This Libra has a love of fashion that’s a typical expression of her highly visual sign. The actress is also a gardener and likely a good one, given she was born when the moon, Venus and Mars were all in Virgo, the sign of growth, nurturing and green thumbs.
