Venus Offers Generation Exchange Program
To those who grew up in the analog age, today’s technology-rich children seem to gain digital savvy through osmosis. The alarmingly adaptive youth may have more to teach older people than any other generation that has walked the earth. Venus warms up to Saturn, increasing the interest and stimulating the dialogue between young and old.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your people will see you the way they always have, regardless of what new wisdom you bring to the picture. If you want to be properly recognized, you’ll have to venture out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Waiting until you are stirred to do something isn’t advised. Get in motion, and the practical aspects will soon come together to give you that inspired feeling or to render it unnecessary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). While tuning in to the people around you and all the humor, interest and beauty that’s going on in your surroundings right now, you’ll get the sneaking suspicion that these are the good times.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may find that you’re acting on less of a thought process and more of a gut feeling. People will respect your decisions even if you can’t back them up in rational terms. The less you say about it the better.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You and a friend will occupy the same moment and have a vastly different experience of it. Find out what’s going on with this person. Pisces energy is helping you expand your powers of empathy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your timing is sublime, largely because you’re not getting too wrapped up in time periods over which you have no control, i.e., “then.” Instead of thinking about where you were or where you’ll be, notice where you are.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your active imagination will be a delight to behold. Even those who can’t relate to your creativity can at least appreciate that you bring a special something to the moment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In order to step through the porthole of intuition, you have to leave your baggage at the door. Any attachment you have to your story of the past or the future will only cloud your vision.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whatever you are feeling, it is perfectly acceptable. Tell yourself this, even though you may not even be aware of what you’re feeling. You need a reminder that it is safe to be yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are decisive, but not closed-minded. There’s a big difference. Choosing is movement. Someone who is already moving can just as easily move a different way. It’s harder, though, for someone who is not moving.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Though you’re practiced in the art of conversation, since Mercury went retrograde, it hasn’t been as easy for you. At times like this, words are inferior indicators of all you’re learning through silent observation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s a fine time to move your professional life into new territory. Mention your interests, volunteer to help, or turn in an application. Your strong intention will clear the way.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 6). Don’t waste energy being too practical or thinking small. Make magical requests now while so much is working in your favor. You’ll labor for free this month and then get paid handsomely for easy-peasy work in April. Projects and relationships reach a turning point in May. Invest in you. Family grows in December. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 9, 39, 11 and 7.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I never was a moody person before, but recently I can’t seem to shake off the sadness of life. When people around me lack enthusiasm or seem lonely, I fall into a horrible funk. I’m a 40-year-old Pisces.”
Right now, the sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Neptune are all in your part of the sky. You may feel overwhelmed with different kinds of energy, but you’re also stronger than you realize. I encourage you to summon that strength and flee your gloomy environment with all the zeal of a fully alive person running from zombies. In your current state, you need to be in a positive environment more than ever.
Those who lack enthusiasm may not realize that the gravity of their humorless ways has an impact on others. But anyone who is paying attention knows that a dark mood can be like an emotional black hole, sucking the happiness out of everything that comes near it. Gloomy people are toxic, especially to Pisces, who can be an emotional sponge, soaking up the vibes all around.
Thank you for reaching out and sharing about your struggle. I encourage you to seek the input and support of many sources: spiritual, social, intellectual and possibly medical.
