Yesterday the sun burst into Leo like a movie star with a megawatt smile, and already interesting developments are occurring in the plotline. These are the days of drama, excitement and glamour. It’s as though the director just yelled “action,” and now the whole scene is abuzz with activity.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is said that a person cannot be deceived who does not on some level want to believe the deception. Whether or not that is true, keep your eyes wide open, and you’ll be impervious to such things.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s better to go through bad times with good people than to get on board with good times with bad people. Take your company into careful consideration.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Are you already the person you want to be? Well, he or she is somewhere inside you, that’s for sure! Your potential will be realized — you can count on that. Keep on with the mission.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Living well and fully is the answer, not living long without the passion of your conviction. If you think it will take a lot out of you, it’s probably a mission worth your effort.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are not worried about what people think of you, because you assume that they don’t — mostly. You should be warned, though, that you’re more memorable and entertaining than you think.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your personal qualities will endure. So, do you know what they are, and are you in touch with them? It might be something to home in on now, as you’ll be growing them for a lifetime.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There will be an inconvenience, a major inconvenience, in fact. But if you think of this as a challenge in problem solving or, better yet, an adventure, you will turn it into an opportunity instead.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Paper exchanged between you and another will make a difference in your perception of that person or business. It is one of the most tangible forms of communication and is to be strongly considered.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be putting a price tag on your work. Don’t think in terms of what you’re worth. Think in terms of the value you create in the lives of others, and price accordingly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People you grew up with have influenced the definition of your boundaries, but you don’t have to leave those boundaries where they are. You can change and move them. You feel ready for a redesign.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can’t exactly yell out “cut” like a movie director and end the scene so everyone can try the whole thing over from the top. But you will be able to do some version of that. You really are the director, you know.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). At one time, you rather unconsciously selected people and circumstances to keep you in a comfortable and familiar place. Now you’re thinking differently, and your eyes are wide open as you guide yourself toward new horizons.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 23). This year you focus your efforts on the clients, projects and jobs that are truly stimulating to you. Your curiosity leads you to a very special relationship in August. A career leap is featured in September. Give a relative a hand now, and the favor will be returned in January. Finances improve in October and May. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 13, 38, 26 and 50.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Holiday, I’m a Pisces, and I just wanted to reach out to you and share my experience with nature spirits. I went to Yosemite to find them because a friend of mine told me that he encountered them once there. I hiked every day for a week and didn’t encounter any. Then, on the eighth day, I was hiking, and I slipped on loose gravel and fell down a steep hill straight into a rock cliff — and yet I wasn’t hurt in the least. It was as though I landed on moss or pillows or clouds, because something cushioned me in the end. I can’t explain why I wasn’t seriously hurt. When I told my friend, he said the nature spirits were with me and protected me even though I couldn’t detect them. I confess I had a feeling of deep peace and joy after my fall and couldn’t logically figure out why I was so happy. Question: Why can’t I see the nature spirits? My friend can.”
Next time you invite the spirits to connect with you, keep in mind that your strongest connection to the spirit world may not be visual. Judging from your story, your kinesthetic sense may be stronger!
CELEBRITY PROFILES: The world knows him as Harry Potter, though Leo actor Daniel Radcliffe has expanded his range considerably since the ending of the film series, most recently with a stint on Broadway in the starring role of “The Cripple of Inishmaan,” his most critically acclaimed performance yet. The dedicated actor was born when the sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars were all in Leo, the sign of entertainment.
