FOR RELEASE: WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2012
The Sagittarius moon rules as we near the end of the 2012 Aquarian solar transit. If your wheels are spinning about how you might make a difference in the world, you're not alone. There's a feeling that the pressure is on and it's time to make choices. Apply the expansive mindset and general luck accompanying this lunar station to the quest.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). This day will be touched by unusual happenings, idiosyncratic people and strange experiences that seem to come from out of the blue. You enjoy the shakeup.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It will be so challenging to establish consistent practices in your personal and professional life that you may give up, deciding instead to move with the whims of the moment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There will always be those "Chicken Little" types who, with the slightest provocation, will run around saying the sky is falling. You know better. The sky, in fact, will never fall. If anything, it will rise.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Hit the pause button for perspective. When you take a breather, you'll be able to rise above your situation and give some thought to the mark you'd like to leave on the people and situations you encounter.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may not feel like your usual powerful self. Instead you realize you're someone who is just trying to get through a situation — to slog it out with the rest of the players. Knowing you're not alone may help you soldier on.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may jump toward the sun, but your point is not to land there. You just want to get off the ground. Your reasonable aims will be successful, and a few of your unreasonable ones will also triumph.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are more than a billion organisms in a teaspoon of soil. Everything you encounter, even only for a brief moment, will be changed by you. The very ground is changed because you walked on it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You crave new experience. At the same time, you are tied to your responsibilities. You're so convincing, though, that you just may be able to charm those who need you into joining you on a madcap adventure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may start off the day feeling at odds with those around you. But once you adjust your attitude, your day fills up with the qualities of harmony and union.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You like it when the ball is in your court. It means it's your chance to shine. However, it may feel today like dozens of balls are being hit back to you at once. Take it easy. All balls can be returned in due time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your head is filling with fanciful ideas. There is so much delightful influence around you, and you are extraordinarily receptive to the best of it. Ask for guidance through your imagination.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 15). Your opportunities multiply as they are seized. In March, choose your focus and stay with it. April turns friendships into love. You'll earn your money differently in May. Your personal life will shift to accommodate new priorities in the summer. Make fun important, and see more of the world in August. Scorpio and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 20, 31, 33 and 14.
FRIENDSHIP TIPS FROM THE STARS: Friends are one of the true measures of wealth in this lifetime. When relationships are going well, it's easy to take friendship for granted. Keep your relationship skills sharp and your friendships strong with these tips from the stars.
ARIES: Track the Details. Friends are always dropping hints to you about what they like, need and find important. Your busy life can get in the way of remembering these details at the appropriate time. After you talk to a friend, take notes about what you've learned. Your lists will help you stay in better contact, choose better birthday gifts and generally be more thoughtful and caring when it matters.
TAURUS: Pour Some Sugar on It. You're true, consistent and stable, and this is great for cementing platonic bonds. Take it to the next level by resolving to be tender, funny and surprising, as well. In every friendship endeavor, ask yourself: Am I creating a memory with this? Give you and your friend something to laugh about when you're sitting on the porch together in your old-people rocking chairs.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Musical Aquarius Amber Riley auditioned for "American Idol" but was turned down by the show's producers, only to make her own way to stardom as the proud belter Mercedes Jones on the mega-hit television series "Glee." Riley was born when the moon was in Taurus, an astrological aspect not uncommon for stellar singers. Taurus rules the throat.
