Avalanches of advice are disseminated daily with the aim to unravel the exact formula for attaining one’s heart’s desire, though the recent conjunction of Venus and Mars has distilled the process down to three simple steps: Affirm what you want; make a plan; take action. All other nuances are merely optional.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you have to convince yourself that you’re right, you’re either A) not or B) oppressed. It is possible that others have squashed your spirit with their own agenda, thus causing you to doubt yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will get what was promised, but not when it was promised — or maybe it will be the other way around. Hold people to their word. Accountability is the core of human decency.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do what you can. Take responsibility where it’s convenient. You wouldn’t believe the burden you might take from another person’s shoulders by volunteering to do something that will be very easy and enjoyable for you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re aware of the needs of others, the opportunities that are out there and the ways in which you might serve them. But mostly, you’re aware of who you are. That’s the piece that makes it all come together.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What if you were never able to change your flaws? What then? Then you’d be forced to accept and make the most of it all. So start there. At this point it’s a more powerful position than wishing for a change.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Social dynamics are tricky now. There is such a thing as playing it too cool. People want to know that you care enough to make an effort, but not that you’re trying too hard.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The blurred borders and fuzzy edges that led to so much confusion will come together in a snap. It will be like getting the perfect prescription glasses: The world is suddenly crisp and clear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just because you’ve given doesn’t mean you must now give in perpetuity. Those who try to hook you into an endless cycle are repellant to you. You’d rather just solve a problem and be done with it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To avoid invoking the envy of your peers, maybe it’s better if you keep your hyper-production on the down-low now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People who make decisions based strictly on how they feel may worry you, but no more than those who decide strictly based on research, spreadsheets and cost comparisons. As for you, you’ll do a little of both ways.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one is handed initiative. Initiative is something you have to take. What you do is really secondary today. The impact is created in how and why you do it. A power move is a move that’s initiated by you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Ruled by Neptune, the dream king, Pisces need to dream like a fish needs water. New inspiration will help you fulfill that need today. Blow out the limits.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 6). You’ll be the spark that brings a project to life. Soon many will be involved, and many more will be affected by the beautiful and useful thing you started. Family will grow. Your heart opens in new ways because of who comes into it next month. There’s a move in March that will require you to get more education. Pisces and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 38, 41, 16 and 9.
