Countdown to Conjunctions

Good fortune is lining up that will pay off later in the week. Today’s instructions are to hold on to hope, which is one of those rare things, like love, that you can clasp and give to others at the same time. The Libra moon of relationships will remind us that we depend on each other. Ask for help, and ask others whether they need it, too.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is such a thing as being too giving or, more likely, giving the right amount but to the wrong person. You have a good heart, but don’t let that blind you to what’s bad in people.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Hearing an apology will bring a weird satisfaction that verges on happiness. Maybe it’s nice to know that other people make mistakes, too, or that if they had it to do over again, they would treat you better.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Knowing who you are is kind of beside the point today, because you’re too busy unselfconsciously proving the point with every successful action. You have officially gotten out of your own way.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll ask astute questions. You could catch someone off guard, and this is good — you’ll get an honest answer. What you learn about the past will help you feel differently about the present and future.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s something you need to put out of your mind because it’s taking up too much of your energy, and there’s nothing you can do about it today. Don’t think, wonder or obsess. Focus elsewhere.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll make something without worrying about whether anyone cares. You’re doing it for you, for the joy of putting things together, just because. Today this action will open the door of destiny.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will be repaid for the time you put into your body. But the mental benefits of exercise cannot be stressed enough. Even if you feel like it’s an indulgence, get in a workout. Your brain needs it now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A relationship may hit a strange, rocky passage, but keep a sure footing and move quickly along to smoother junctures. You can’t stumble over something if it’s behind you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your attention is a precious commodity, and it’s yours to appropriate in the way you see fit. Your interest doesn’t have to become your child’s or your partner’s interest, but it will certainly help if others respect it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s something about a current trend that suits you just fine, and you’re likely to hop right on board. Just remember that if you follow the crowd, you’ll likely end up in a crowded place.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is quite a lot of coming and going these days — a loved one leaves and another returns. Your heart sends warm wishes and welcoming affection while your head tries to roll with the changes.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Thunderstorms are powerful and frightening but mercifully brief. Remember that a dark cloud currently on the horizon will soon pass over you, and the sun isn’t far behind.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 18). You’re decisive and quick — qualities you’ll use at key moments this year. You know when it’s right to handle things first and ask questions later. A strange coincidence in July becomes the opening to a love story. August is for signing deals and making fans. October offers the chance to rectify family karma. Aries and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 24, 3, 11, 17 and 32

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “What does it mean when all of your planets are in a few houses and some parts of the wheel are without planets entirely? I do not have any planets in the fifth house. I feel like it’s telling me that I’m not going to have children, or that I don’t have any artistic talent. Is that true?”

No! With 10 luminaries represented in a chart and 12 houses, empty houses are an inevitability. Furthermore, it’s common to have clumps of planets in a house, leaving even more of them empty. What sign is ruling your vacant fifth house? (Which sign is on the fifth house cusp?) That will give you more information. For instance, Leo, Libra or Pisces on the fifth house are exceptional for artists even if the fifth house is empty. As for children, destiny has not spoken on the matter. It’s entirely up to you.

Generally speaking, I advise shunning interpretations that do not empower or enlighten you. If reading the omens in a particular way makes you feel less-than, why would you accept that inference? This is true not only of fortunetelling methods, but also of any definition or opinion of you. Many things become possible once you get on your own side.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Country music superstar and vocal coach of “The Voice,” Blake Shelton was born under the sign of the twins, with Mercury and Venus in Gemini, as well. These friendly, sociable and smart planetary influences offset a more serious, emotional and soulful moon in Pisces. The Pisces moon and two Leo planets suggests that Shelton would make an excellent film actor.
