Venus and Uranus Square Off
It could have been so easy. Venus is known to cool off as she transits Capricorn in search of a more practical and traditional mode of love. And though she’s but a few days into this journey, Uranus in Aries isn’t about to let things get boring. Filled with rebellious excitement and wielding the element of surprise, Uranus gives romance a nice shake.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). A boost in prestige makes this a fine day for sales and dealing with the public. The rules in business and in your personal life are the same: You offer something of value in exchange for something of equal value to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can read the social cues and make a pretty accurate guess as to how another person is feeling. But can you read an entire room? If so, the world is your oyster today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s a time to be open and curious and a time to step back into what you know and honor the tenets that got you where you are. The latter instinct serves you well this afternoon.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your sign mate Carl Jung suggested that people don’t really solve their problems; they outgrow them. You’ll note how this is true in your own life while doing the things that are conducive to your own personal growth.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What was once a raw idea is now getting organized, molded and shaped into an actuality. You’ll spend your weekend polishing and honing this highly original creation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You enrich your loved ones by exploring what’s fun for you in the world. You pick up ways of interacting, new experiences and all kinds of fun in the outside world that you can bring back to your nearest and dearest.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). An uncharacteristic stubbornness arises in you. Why should you always be the one to pick up the slack? You may as well take charge, because you’re just not in the mood to follow anyone else now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The places you turn to find humor may disappoint. You’ll have to come up with your own methods to induce laughter, but you can be quite resourceful in this, and those around you will be glad to know you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Emotional muscle building is much harder and requires greater self-discipline than physical muscle building. You’ll manage your feelings well. Better to get mad on purpose than on accident.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As for your heroes, it’s good that you’ve found people to admire and follow. But right now, you make as much sense as any of them, if not more. So follow yourself!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Disagreement is solved through agreement. Find something you both believe, and start there. You’re skilled at making others feel comfortable enough to talk with you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though there are many competitive aspects to life, it helps to remember that life on the whole is not a competition. Those who go looking for ways in which they are better or worse are only borrowing trouble.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 12). You’ll helm an important mission. It’s unofficial; most things worth doing are. You have a way of getting everyone in your group to feel the excitement you feel and work toward shared goal. Dates in February will open your eyes. Family dynamics iron out in March. You’ll seal a deal in April. Aquarius and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 28, 15 and 6.
LEO YEAR AT A GLANCE: JANUARY: You can be the star any old time you decide. Right now you see more benefit in being a team player. FEBRUARY: Mars activates your imagination and sends you on a creative quest. MARCH: Isn’t it amazing how love can make you feel vulnerable and strong at the same time? APRIL: You don’t have to hike the Himalayas to find yourself. Wherever you go, there you are. MAY: After the full moon eclipse on the 25th, you’ll have something to celebrate. JUNE: A strong need to find where you belong will set you on a path of spiritual seeking. JULY: Express yourself. Go bigger with your ideas and touch many. AUGUST: Outside forces and authority figures loom large, but your destiny will be determined by one person, and that’s you. SEPTEMBER: Education is liberation. The topics will range from business to personal, and there will be overlap. OCTOBER: You’ll make deals happen. Also, you’ll introduce people who never would’ve known each other if it weren’t for you. NOVEMBER: A new cycle starts on the 3rd. Suddenly your needs will blend brilliantly with life’s dance. DECEMBER: You’ll have the peace and maturity to rise above drama and be happy — even blissful!
