Mercury/Saturn Hangover

The residue of yesterday’s meeting of Mercury and Saturn still lingers, suggesting a day of contrasting scenes. Venus in Sagittarius is full of energy and passion, and yet there is also a nagging sense of doubt. Opening one door means not choosing any of the other paths. You may find yourself wondering what you passed up.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Compassion starts at home. It is hard to be kind to others if you haven’t been kind to yourself. With this in mind, take the time to do the things that make you smile.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Negative attitudes are contagious. Avoid the complainers and malcontents lest you become part of their clan. Make a move away from them to assure that you stay self-contained.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Whatever you believe about yourself, whether it’s accurate or completely off base, is likely to become true. With that in mind, try this one on for size: You are at the beginning of a cycle of prosperity.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your desire to overcome a problem or limitation is admirable, and yet you may be overlooking the main asset of your particular personality makeup. What if you embraced the flaw instead of trying to change it?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be in charge in a hands-off kind of way. You’ll be the responsible party and a guide for others without micromanaging their efforts. They can feel that you trust them, and they’ll work to maintain that trust.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t require a lot of external stimuli in your environment. In fact, you do your best work when the sound, light and personality of the room is muted enough to allow your rich inner life to take over.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your moral compass is spinning, and you’ll strive to settle the dial in the right direction. You’ll act because you’re driven to do what you think is right, not because you want praise or attention.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There will be good news. This could have to do with an inheritance, a happy outcome from applying your personal talent or the acquisition of property. Enjoy this bounty.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Tenderness is the essential ingredient that will make your relationships work. It is the glue that holds your familial bonds and friendships together. It may seem counterintuitive, but tenderness makes you strong.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will build your assets by focusing on what you do have instead of on what you don’t have. Put your energy into highlighting your best work. No one has quite your lineup of gifts and talents.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You admire people of action, but today it’s more important to consider the action itself and not just the person who moves on an impulse. As for you, you’re better off thinking things through for another day.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Groups are powerful and sometimes not in a good way. Beware: The dominant forces in the room gain followers precisely because of their dominance, even though their message may be terribly off.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 9). You’ll definitely sing your own song this year, and it all starts with the passionate and creative influence of the next six weeks. There will be pleasure in research, and by November, you’ll apply what you know and make a significant change. December shifts your focus. You’ll move forward with plans for family life in January. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 17, 1, 22, 24 and 38.

12 MAPS TO NOW: Do you sometimes stray so far from Now that you have trouble finding your way back? Here’s another map to return you to the present.

MAP No. 9: The Art of Waiting

Most people don’t wait well. When the line at the grocery store or the gas pump seems excruciatingly long, it is only natural to feel trapped by the circumstances and respond by mentally squirming around them or ranting about them. The next time you are hanging around in some in-between bit of time, challenge yourself to take a different point of view. Perhaps this is the perfect opportunity to clear your own agenda and take in the moment.

What if the place and time in which you stand waiting are the only place and time that exist at all? What do you gather in that case? Do people’s faces have greater significance? Can you sense the emotional timbre of the room? Do the sights and smells mean something different to you?

If you can make yourself relax into the in-between time, you might find that it will be the most revealing of your true nature and of the nature of those around you.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: It’s difficult to believe that the baritone-voiced Scotty McCreery is just now, for the first time, leaving his teenage years behind. This platinum-selling “American Idol” will celebrate his birthday week by releasing a new album and making promotional appearances. The country star was born when the sun and lucky Jupiter were in harmonious Libra and the moon was in soulful Cancer.
