Your daily horoscope

  • By Holiday Mathis

A cosmic fire graces the sky today in the form of a relatively rare and auspicious alignment of Jupiter and Uranus in fire signs. There will only be one more aspect like this between now and 2019. The good-luck trine invites us to share our stories in an effort to entertain and inform one another and form beneficent emotional connections.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't have to understand things to get used to them. This truth will show up in your relationships. Your loved one has qualities that baffle you, and eventually those will be the same qualities that endear her to you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You appreciate the privileges of your years, of which there are many. Don't spoil this by wishing for a "do-over." The past is gone. Jonathan Swift said, "No wise man ever wished to be younger."

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you don't like where the fates are leading you, dig in your heels. Sometimes the fates should be wrestled to the ground — exhausting work, but it makes you stronger, too.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Put yourself out there with a story about who you are, where you come from and what you want. You'll speak to people's emotions. At the end of your story, the applause will come in the form of an opportunity.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're not imagining things: Someone is checking you out or putting you to the test. There are good reasons for this. Relax, smile and do your thing. You'll tip the scale in your favor just by being happy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're transitioning into a new phase, and there will be some discomfort to go along with it, but nothing you can't handle. You can't be born without going through birth!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). More than the money, the kinship of others is what makes your work joyful. You'll demonstrate your appreciation for your colleagues so that there is no question as to how you feel.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your need to communicate is strong, and you'll do it so well. Even that horrible listener you know will pay attention as you engage him or her in the juicy details of your journey.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You believe in the power of love, and you put action behind that belief. It's what will allow you to let go of a problem relationship and adopt an inspired relationship, all with the same person.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When it comes to love, you hold out for an equal. You want to be wanted, not needed.

There are exceptions to the rule, but for today, hold fast to your preferences and expectations.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Before you break out your wallet, ask your friends for help. You can borrow what you need so you don't have to rent or buy it. Also, you may be able to swap instead of shop.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No one cares like you do. Someone wants that special kind of attention you give and is too proud to ask for it directly. Address the situation with your renowned sensitivity, and you'll be rewarded in kind.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 3). This year you're grateful not to have everything you need, because the fun is in reaching out and connecting with others. A collaboration that comes together over the next six weeks will bring love and money into your world. You'll ink a deal in May. July is your chance on the world stage or at the higher levels of a difficult endeavor. Sagittarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 28, 9, 44 and 16.

STORYTELLING BY THE STARS: Inside everyone and everything is a fascinating story, but it takes a stellar storyteller to find it. Today's trine of Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries will bring good fortune to those who can captivate an audience with a good story. Yesterday we explored the importance of using blocks of emotion instead of relying on the retelling of events and stressed the importance of editing. (See the archives.) Here are additional tips to help you hone this crucial life skill.

Find the Twist

The very nature of a story is that it's about something out of the ordinary. If the audience knows what's going to happen, it's not a story. Identify the surprises in your story — the parts that fly in the face of what's expected — and set them up with a contrast: "Normally when I go to feed my bird he's in the cage, but this time he wasn't, and the door was closed!"

Know the Stakes

Good stories involve something important to be gained or lost. If there's nothing at stake, the listener has no incentive to get involved in the story. Take a tip from Hollywood, where often the hero is fighting for life itself or perhaps to save the entire planet from destruction.

More on storytelling tomorrow!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pisces Jessica Biel and her Aquarian husband Justin Timberlake are excitedly anticipating the birth of their first child. The superstar couple is an example of astrological neighbors becoming best friends and lovers. Aquarius is the realm of friendship, and Pisces of spiritual connection, so this relationship balances real-world fun with deep meaning.
