Venus and Uranus Shake It Up

Venus and Uranus shake it up in Aries. Hearts will go wild. Love is illogical. Strange associations, inconvenient feelings and unlikely pairings will all be part of the excitement. Whimsical actions may seem to be of little consequence in the moment, but they will create lasting memories that heavily influence the way-distant future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Does it all seem to be happening at once? That’s just an optical illusion. Narrow your vision. Look at one section of the chaos at a time. Break things down into small, manageable sections.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The red flag will go up, so don’t ignore it. Walk away before you get in too deep. You wouldn’t like this arrangement for your best friend, so you shouldn’t let yourself be in it, either.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To you, it may feel like you’re doing sporadic bouts of work, but to those who check in on you, it will be quite impressive. At the end of the day, you’ll be applauded for what you’ve finished.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You need a policy. Come up with one and write it down. With a policy to guide your decisions, you will be able to make them quickly and without wasted effort.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your sophisticated taste comes through even though you are sometimes silly in your approach. There is good silly and bad silly. Your humor creates commonality and good will.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This day will start off shaky and improve as it goes. What you learn will make you feel hopeful about the future, which actually seems to brighten with every positive thought you throw at it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are curious about the lives of others, and you might attribute a certain glamour to them that they don’t really possess. Say the magic words, and doors will swing open, giving you a temporary pass into a disparate world.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). To love is to be happy. Receiving love back from the same person you love is absolute heaven. Tonight, messages between dear ones will be slightly scrambled, and sorting them out will be part of the fun.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are the beholder in whose eye beauty is born. If you think it’s lovely, it is. Believe in your own ideas, and let yourself enjoy your vision even if you seem to be the only one seeing it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re like a poker player who knows she’s got killer cards and doesn’t dare let her face show it. Your restraint will win you a nice pot of money, too.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Joining in will be fun for a while, but it doesn’t take long for you to get bored with the status quo. If you follow the crowd, you’re never going to see the places you get to see when you walk alone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You crave organization and neatness. Randomness drains your energy, and you’ll have a very low tolerance for it. The time you spend getting things in order will add to your health and well-being.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 15). You’ll uplift or even save someone in June. Being able to help will feel huge, and with good karma and increased confidence, you’ll make a deal in July. Just know the finer points before you sign. Events in September inspire new relationships and adventures. November will positively impact your work. Aries and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 24, 7, 40 and 11.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: To the Leo dealing with overwhelming financial worry and panic… (See Monday through Wednesday for the rest of this response.)

6. After your crying has subsided, slowly turn to take a good look at what you fear. You can do this. You’re stronger than you know. Turn the “worst-case scenario” into a kind of game. The object of the game is to imagine the outcome you fear and then come up with all the possible ways you might cope should those worst cases come to pass. The benefit of the game is that instead of a vague body of fear you will have defined problems with possible solutions.

7. Allow yourself to take things in stages. If you have to take a break from plotting and planning your next move to cry, scream or whatever, just do it. The uptight feelings will pass as long as you let them through. Take a walk, do something different, call a friend, and then get back to it.

8. Take action. That is what will return you to normalcy. How can you lighten your load? Could you clean out a closet and sell something? How can you get more money coming in? Brainstorm, and then act.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Legendary Baltimore Ravens linebacker and ESPN contributor Ray Lewis says, “With all the things I’ve been through, the No. 1 thing that I’ve learned is that we’re supposed to help people through this world.” Lewis was born under a well-rounded balance of astral influences, including a hardworking Taurus sun and an adventurous, passionate Sagittarius moon.
