Your daily horoscope

  • By Holiday Mathis

Romantic Venus and dreamy Neptune connect in unpredictable Pisces to mixed results. Some will be fooled by their own expectations of what love should be, projecting onto potential mates an idealized personality that may have nothing to do with who the other person really is. Others will take a "wait and see" attitude, which is for the best.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A German proverb states, "Charity sees the need, not the cause." You see both now, as long as you put your sights on both. Stay clear and give judiciously.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Hobbies are not extracurricular — they are the curriculum of life. The more time you spend on hobbies this weekend the more fortunate you will be. Scorpio and Gemini people will be lucky partners.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you are not a religious person, this will be enough to get you through: What is right will eventually triumph. Believe it. Religious or not, right has an undeniable power to it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your current mood has you honoring the things you didn't pay attention to yesterday. On a deep level, you know there is purpose to each and every life on the planet — spiders count, too!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don't have to go full-throttle all the time. Your gentle attempts will be successful as long as you follow through to the logical conclusion. The only way to fail is to quit too soon.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). At the moment, it might feel as though you are the more loving one, and that is fine with you. You'd rather admire than not. It makes you richer to realize what is wonderful about others.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You need relief from the thing that you have too much of, even if it's a good thing. Today brings the reprieve, and tomorrow it's back to normal. Enjoy the rest.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Voting happens in many forms, and today it's mostly financial — each dollar is a vote. Note that today people are more likely to vote against what they don't like than to vote for what they believe in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Communication will happen whether or not you're trying, so you might as well try. When you feel you have nothing to say, but you say it anyway, you will connect with someone special.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Strike out in a new direction. Don't worry about whether you have a talent for it.

Don't worry about whether it will be lucrative.
Don't worry about whether it's sensible. You'll be better for having experienced something new.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're at your charming best today. Even though this will be a low-key day, you'll find a novel way of presenting events as though they were newsworthy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This is a happy time because you are getting back something that you thought was lost for good. Celebrate in your own quiet way. Acknowledging the goodness of this attracts more of it.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 1). The storms of the past have taught you how to sail your ship. This year you'll apply what you've learned and get to a sunnier place. You have your choice of many social options this month and next, but by April, you'll be tired of the scene and ready to focus on one relationship. May brings money. Capricorn and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 3, 33, 28 and 5.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: To some degree, people sharing an experience at the same time in the same location will usually find easy things to agree on. For instance, most would agree that certain physical structures exist. Most would agree on the general circumstances of who was there, what was going on, the weather, etc. This week begins with a conjunction of Venus and Neptune in Pisces that renders such agreement more difficult. The land of imagination opens up and invites us to play inside it. Unlike reality, the land of imagination varies wildly depending on whose mind is running the program. The first lesson is not to assume that other people share your vision. Try to communicate clearly instead of expecting others to understand what you're thinking. Lesson two has to do with observing others how they are and not projecting onto them the person you want them to be.

Tuesday brings the full moon in Leo, an exceptionally creative time. If you're working on a project that requires you to be playful and make artistic and/or stylistic decisions, Tuesday will open a flood of enthusiastic energy and the means to wrap things up with a big fancy bow.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: One Direction star Harry Styles is under the public microscope these days, his every tweet, Instagram and gesture a cause of commotion for fans. Styles was born when the sun, Venus and Mars were in Aquarius, the sign that is of the people and for the people. His moon in harmonious Libra adds another breezy air sign to the mix, indicating an unselfconscious social style.
