Between the fiery Leo energy, the Uranus retrograde and the moon and Mercury change, there is potential for some hectic melodrama today. Adopt the qualities reflected in the "Three Jewels of Taoism": compassion, moderation and humility. A soft and reasonable attitude will smooth the way during this cosmically precarious time.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). One connection leads to another. Soon you will find yourself moving in the circles you've wanted to be a part of for some time. Also, you are coming into a lucky time for travel, and this weekend will be an auspicious time to book it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is no time to worry about being well-rounded. Do what you do, and do it better than anyone else. Focus on your strengths and other people around you will offset your weaknesses.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you had a time machine, maybe you would do it differently, but then you wouldn't be the person you are now. Considering the number of fans you have, you must be doing all right. Maybe you should let those regrets go.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The younger ones think you're wrong, and the elders don't see eye to eye with you, either. Maybe it is your job to disagree. Every generation has a right to define its own era.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The one that got away will glisten in the mind's eye with an unreal sparkle that makes all the ones that didn't get away seem dull by comparison. Pining for the missed opportunity is a poetic and unproductive use of time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You feel and give stronger than you did yesterday. It's like your life is suddenly infused with 10 percent more passion, and that 10 percent is all it takes to bump you into the realm of sweet success.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As for the one you loved... well, you still do, after all this time. It's definitely not something to keep to yourself. This is the stuff of life! Articulate and celebrate what's in your heart.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Hip and trendy people help you out with what they know and so do the traditional and practical types. The more open you are to different ideas, methods and information, the luckier you'll be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll be cautioned by those who were wronged, scammed or ripped off in some way. Listen to the warnings, take precautions and then resume thinking in your usual positive way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It isn't what it was, and it's not what it could be. What you have on your hands is a bona fide work in progress, and rest assured you will work it and progress it to the very best of your ability.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Those beautiful words you're hearing are true. They might be difficult to live up to, and it might be a very long time before you taste the fruit of their promises, but you can rest assured that the words are not false.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Relationships are worth the big efforts. Get out of your element and share a brand-new place with a loved one. You'll have a unique and unforgettable experience that's just for the two of you.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 30). You'll finally win what you've been fighting for in August. Immediately figure out your next plan; you'll be surrounded by amazing potential additions to your team. Reconnect with someone from the past for an even more exciting adventure than you had last time. January is your lucky time for investing. April will bring a windfall. Capricorn and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 22, 26 and 1.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I have makeover fever. I'm an Aries with two goals right now: 1. Lose weight. 2. Turn my son's old room (he's off to college) into an exercise room. Do you have any tips for me?"
Why, yes! Invoke the energy of Aries in the room! Aries is the ideal influence for an exercise room, especially if you're trying to lose weight rather than bulk up your muscles. For an energetic, calorie-burning space you can invite the assertive energy of Aries by following these tips:
—Paint a red wall or a red trim on your wall to energize the room with Martian energy. Martian energy is the Aries life fuel.
—Spray the scent of honeysuckle, geranium or sweet pea in your gym space. You won't believe how invigorating a waft of this stuff is. This alone could give you the stamina to do those last five reps.
—Invest in some classic-style iron dumbbells. Iron is the metal of Aries.
—Place a red rose in a glass in the room. Make sure the thorns are still on it, invoking the vibrant spirit of Aries. Who says an exercise room can't have a feminine touch?
CELEBRITY PROFILES: For Leos, star quality has all the elements of theatrical magic tricks. Some of the steps are: Capitalize on strengths, distract from weaknesses and put on a big show. Bodybuilder turned action hero turned "Governator," Arnold Schwarzenegger (who has his natal sun, Saturn and Pluto all in the sign of entertainment) applies his lion's share of star quality to every endeavor he chooses.
