Mars and Neptune Activate the Dream

Albert Einstein suggested that once you accept your limits you can move beyond them. Philosophers like Goethe and Francis Bacon declared that the human mind has no limits. However you think about it, you’re likely to bust through the barriers of yesterday as the Mars and Neptune conjunction puts dreams into activation mode.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It will be harder than usual to make up your mind — or rather, you’ll make it up and then remake it several times. After the back and forth, you’ll be reminded why your original decision was the best.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is nothing more frustrating than a person who makes you fight for your ideas, find support for your arguments and justify your choices. But this is ultimately what makes you great.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Excitement brings the same symptoms as stress, but you definitely know which one you’re feeling at a given moment. You’ll likely visit both sides of the spectrum over the course of this whimsical day.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Romantic relationships are not the only kind that take work. All relationships must be built and then adjusted along the way according to life’s changes. Most of today’s efforts will be spent in this regard.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When emotions run high, people speak the truth. Whether the catalyst is anger or passion, the result will be the same: an honest response that is worth remembering long after the heated feelings have passed.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Something new is being requested of you. Don’t be afraid to voice your concerns or ask for more thorough instructions. Better to ask a dumb question than to make a dumb mistake.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Courageous people often don’t consider themselves courageous because they are so used to being brave that it seems normal to them. Give yourself credit for stepping up to the needs that others don’t seem to see.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Loved ones will share interesting stories and theories with you. Even if you don’t believe them, you’ll humor them. Your compassion is a part of the relationship package, and they’ll depend on it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Many hear wise words, but few follow them. A piece of good advice you gleaned from your parents will hold you in good stead for the next few decades.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In the realm of science fiction, the main character sometimes has strange and prophetic dreams — a clue to the dormant superpowers that lie within. You could have the same tonight.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everything can happen, just not all at once. To avoid the feelings of overwhelm that can come with a day as full of action and opportunities as this one is, make a list and put it in order of importance.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The day offers a feeling of belonging and fun. You’ll have a special kinship with someone who thinks or looks like you. If this person has a similar background, even better.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 4). Inside you exists the person you were at every age. Now you have the widest range you’ve ever had, and you’ll have fun with it, becoming whichever age suits the moment best. The smart move you make this month will boost your income. You and your love are inseparable in March. Travel in May and December. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 44, 11, 19 and 38.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I like to sit in my room and think about things. Some of my favorite things to think about are: people I know, things I might do, what I want to make, what I wish or suspect will happen, reality, god and combinations of those things. When I concentrate, I am very aware of a tingling sensation in my body. It happens in different places: my eye, the top of my head, my toe, my nose, my belly, etc. I wonder what it means. I’m a Scorpio.”

You are very deep, indeed, dear Scorpio — and so is your intuition. I believe that these tingling sensations are messages from your higher self. The interpretations are a personal matter that you can sort out by keeping track in a journal of what you were thinking at the time of the sensation, where the sensation occurred in your body and finally the outcome of the situation. Many psychics find that tingling sensations in the entire head, forehead, lips, nose, belly and fingertips are good omens. Some say that sensations in the back of the head, neck, ears and feet are negative omens. But again, this is very personal, and the best way to read them is to keep track like a scientist.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In his breakout song “I Don’t Want To Be,” Aquarius Gavin DeGraw declared the virtues of being yourself in a world of pretenders. Even though Aquarius is the sign of humanity, Aquarius is also known for individualism. One of the gifts of this sun sign is that they tend to bravely express their uniqueness, thereby encouraging others to do the same. Result: a richer and more varied experience for all.
