The goddess of romance, beauty, song and poetry, Venus tosses perfumed love notes to powerful Pluto, waxing on about fate’s role in the relationship. Does love that’s meant to be always exist, if not in this dimension then in a parallel universe? The moon slips into Leo’s spotlight turning the whole flirtation into a performance.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will be lucky when you go to a place that makes you uncomfortable. Being a bit on edge sharpens your reflexes and makes you use your talents in different ways.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). J.R.R. Tolkien suggested, “It’s a dangerous business going out your front door.” However, you will find just as much danger — and excitement — from the comfort of your couch, thanks to the magic of technology.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be remarkably dedicated, provided the obstacles are cleared from your schedule. Given the time and opportunity, you will practice until you are better and repeat until it’s effortless to create the result you desire.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When people are not listening, it is very tempting to get louder and talk more. You wisely do the opposite. By getting quieter and talking less, you learn what you need to know in order to get people to listen.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You belong to a group of people who care about something. Maybe it’s not a formal group, and it might not even be a very big group, but it’s a strong group, and that you can be proud of.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel like you are pitching forward in a kind of controlled fall. So it might comfort you to know that on some subconscious level you know exactly what you are doing and you have a great deal of power over the result.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is no substitute for experience, but the stories you share will be as close as some people get to doing a certain thing on their own. Your words will sketch the outline of what is too huge to convey.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Because you feel a bond with others, you also feel that it’s your responsibility to help those who do not have such a strong connection. You’ll reach out to the lonely and make a difference.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It is once again time for you to make a mark. As your Sagittarian sign mate Jakob Dylan sings, “Eyes on the prize, reboot the mission. I lost my sight, but not the vision.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll lighten up and mentally brush off some of the smaller goof-ups you’ve made. By mentally minimizing your mistakes, you celebrate the ways you are alive and human.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Creative juices are flowing. You’ll be moved to regale someone with personal stories, and you may feel free to make them up, as well. Your fiction is harmless and humorous.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Those who embark on long journeys deserve to arrive at a satisfying destination. Whether you’re the host or the traveler, this will be important to keep in mind.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 9). Compelled to create, you’ll express yourself often and fully this year. Whether or not you receive accolades for your creations is irrelevant, and yet you can’t help but bask in the applause in November and enjoy the extra money in May. Family additions happen in December. June brings travel. Sagittarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 15, 39, 24 and 17.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Do albums have birthdays? I’m asking because my favorite band’s new album drops today, and I want to know its fate.”

What a coincidence! My favorite band’s new album also drops today. Might we be talking about the same one? The long-awaited Wallflowers album “Glad All Over” features Jakob Dylan, Greg Richling, Rami Jaffee, Jack Irons and Stuart Mathis (who also happens to be my husband). The group could not have chosen a more auspicious birthday for their new bundle of harmonic joy, with Venus in verdant Virgo forming a lucky trine to Pluto in Capricorn. The aspect highlights the power of doing and sharing what you love for the sheer pleasure of it. Pluto represents the unexplained forces that creativity can unleash in both the creators and the observers of the creation, pointing out that the exchange is in and of itself a new creation. The Leo moon is far less esoteric on the matter, as he highlights the entertainment value of a band that, put simply, totally rocks. As for the fate of this album, Venus suggests that what is beautiful and true will always change the world and cannot help but do so.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Perhaps best known for his portrayal of the obsessive-compulsive detective of the television series “Monk,” Tony Shalhoub has racked up more than 80 film and television credits since graduating from the Yale School of Drama. His moon and Mercury in Scorpio whispers of soulful depth and complexity, as the sun, Saturn and Neptune in Libra suggests that relationships are everything to Shalhoub.
