Knowing that nothing in life is permanent, and eventually, in one way or another, everyone leaves, we still invest in people — with our hearts, time and money. The change of Mars points out that people will leave whether or not we invest. And if no investment is made, the relationship won't add much value to life, even if it lasts a really long time.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Are you going to do what you said you would do? That's all they care about today. Hopefully, you underestimated what you would do, and the delivery will be over your promise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You might be very bored with what's going on today, and that's really just a challenge to look a little deeper. There's always a pretty thing to be admired, a problem to be solved. There's always a day to be made.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you don't exactly know how to manage what's going on down low, look up high. Is there a higher thought that resonates with you? A guide, a cloud formation, a sky that speaks to you?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Small thinkers will go disguised as "reasonable" people. They may tell you about limits that are true for them, but that does not mean that the same rules apply to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The market is calling you. You've something to sell, and they definitely want it. How will you position this? Knowable, likeable, trustable: You're all these things.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Something you set up one way will end up another. There is nothing reasonable you can do about this. Settle in. That is just another way of saying, "Chill." It's going to work when you calm down.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). "With liberty and justice for all": Well, that's a big statement with a big meaning. Your sign of balance and fairness, you really get that, live it and mean it. What are you going to do about it today?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your plans are solid, meaning that nothing has been left to chance — but chance doesn't like that at all. This is the time she will rebel, elbowing her way into the equation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The dynamic between two people is compelling. Fake or real — it depends a lot on the medium. Of the ones you observe now, you're wise to be a little skeptical.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is safety in being shy. If you feel like hiding, it's a signal that you will benefit by doing the opposite. Take one step forward. Put yourself out there, even if it feels foolish.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You sought a position in the middle because you thought it would be logical and easier, but it wasn't. There is no middle. It's always the start of something or the end of something.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Life is an experiment. No one ever really knows how a choice will turn out; they just get adept at playing their odds. And the only way to do that is by building experiences — choosing and then choosing again.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 27). You can't help who you are. That's the sad way to look at it. Who you are is a gift. That's the happy way. This is your year to start making good on all those things you thought were "different" or "flawed," because it turns out that those are your assets. Lean into it. December and June will be your best months financially. Libra and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 11, 13, 29 and 4.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm a Libra, and I've always been indecisive when it comes to events in my life, whether it's as serious as choosing a career, or as insignificant as what to eat for dinner. My mother also died before my second birthday, so I feel as if I've missed steps in my life that others experienced. Will I always be so indecisive?"
You know how to make decisions. Really, you do. Weighing the options on the scale of your sign is just a part of your decision-making process. A sometimes tedious or downright scary part (one event or piece of information can tip the whole thing, right?), but for you it's a necessary part. And to make things more frustrating, sometimes you don't even come to a conclusion. You obsess over the what-ifs of a choice until you cry uncle and take the path of least resistance. But here's the thing: Everyone feels this way at times, even non-Libras, and even people who have had easier childhoods than you've had.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Three fallen pop stars from the '90s form an alliance in the upcoming project that mega-star Gwyneth Paltrow will light up. This lovely Libran multitalented artist has Venus in playful Leo, indicating that an endless wellspring of creativity emerges from her connection to her children. Mars in Virgo shows a strong, practical and organized nature.
