Last Day of Neptune’s Retrograde

On the introspective last day of Neptune’s retrograde, consider the many ways in which you are buying into someone else’s idea of how things should be. When you think about everything that influences your decisions, you may wonder whether you made the choices or whether they were made for you by the hive-mind. New awareness will change future decisions.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s said that history is the story of the winning person’s side. Seek the alternate history today, because you’ll learn more from the mistakes of the losing side. The first lesson likely has something to do with maintaining a good defense.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The opposite of coexistence is co-nonexistence. People who work together will thrive together, while the fighters will perpetuate a cycle of destruction that can only end badly.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll create a timeline for your specific plans. Sometimes you’ll hit goals more quickly, and other times it will take you longer. But without the timeline, the goal wouldn’t be reached at all.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Doing to others as you would like done to you only works well when the “others” have tastes and preferences similar to yours. That’s why you’ll take the time to find out what someone really wants before you make a move.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you overvalue what you do and contribute, the world will likely step in to knock down the price. If you undervalue your contribution, it’s possible but far less likely that the world will step in to compensate you appropriately.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may find yourself in an artistic conundrum. The people who urge you to “be creative” are being extremely uncreative in their suggestions. That’s because what they really want you to do is “be marketable.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Time and effort are being invested on your behalf, and the more input you give the better. Until they know what you want, they’ll do what they imagine you would want and will probably go far off base.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The situation in your relationship gets more intense. How will this problem be solved? The obvious solutions were tried and didn’t work. Don’t worry. The solution is still easy; it’s just not obvious.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s not that they are not listening to you. It’s just that the people around you need to hear things several times before the meaning starts to sink in and they know what to do next.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Realize that some people have a different relationship with the truth than you do. Some people are married to the truth, and others consider the truth a casual friend. Don’t trust everything you hear today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Some people will try to make you believe you owe them something, when you actually owe them nothing. Your attention is your own to give, and no one automatically earns it just by being obnoxious.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you approach the day with your sense of whimsy in the driver’s seat, you’ll find the most creative ways to loaf around. There is truly value in this, though few will see it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 12). You feel like an everyday person doing everyday things. And yet someone sees you as a saint, someone sees you as a master, and others see you as a superstar. December brings a reckoning you’ve been waiting for. You’ll get a job because of your originality. You’ll be in charge of family functions in the spring. Virgo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 23, 7, 19, 48 and 27.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Why do I have such a difficult time getting to know women? I approach them asking for the time, I tell them they look nice, and it goes nowhere from there. I’m a decent-looking 28-year-old guy. Could you give me a better line to use? Also, I’m a Taurus. What sign should I be looking for?”

The most difficult way to meet women is to meet them around town with what’s known as a “cold approach,” which is to say, a line or a manner of approach designed to start an interaction. Pick-up artists consider this an art form to be studied, practiced and mastered. From your question, it seems that you are doing it all wrong and therefore should not take the indifferent responses personally. You could be marvelously physically attractive, and women still will run in the other direction with the wrong approach.

When approached by an unknown man, women often feel vulnerable and will put up their defenses before you even say a word. Then — think about it — the first thing out of your mouth is a lie. You ask for the time, but you don’t really want to know it. My advice is to research the art of the pick up, and then use it on a nice Virgo or Capricorn.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: What do Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears have in common with Ryan Gosling? They all have been stars of Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club. This child actor turned leading man recently starred in “Only God Forgives” with Kristen Scott Thomas. Gosling was born when the sun, Mercury and Uranus were in sizzling Scorpio.
