Lucky in Love, Lucky in Life


The goddess of love and the mack daddy of abundance get together today for a second conjunction of the year, resulting in a stroke of luck for all things involving the heart. There will be jumping for joy, general giddiness and smiles for miles. When it comes to love, it can't be hidden, and most wouldn't want to hide it in the first place.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You occasionally make mistakes, and that just proves that you're learning. The best people miss the point from time to time, and saying something less than witty is a phenomenon that happens to even the funniest people.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are not your body. You're a spirit inhabiting a body. Don't take opinions (yours or other people's) personally. The body and mind improvements you make will help keep your spirits high.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's a high-stakes game, but you're favored for the win. If, by some fluke, you don't get the win, that's only because not winning is actually winning. The best gifts sometimes come in weird packaging.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Aim high, live your fantasies, let down your defenses, give in to optimism and resist printed words telling you what to do, including these. Advice is only as good as it is applicable to the current situation, which only you understand fully.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Miraculous. Someone understands you, intuits your desires and fulfills them without you ever having to ask a thing. Praise and deep gratefulness are in order.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though your talent in and of itself may not be uncommon, what is uncommon is your choice to work on it over all else. Stick with it. You're close to greatness.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The cosmic signals seldom follow proper etiquette. They don't greet you by name. They barely make themselves known at all. But however subtle a sign may be, when you see it, you'll know it's for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's a day for making choices that lead to a well-rounded experience. Avoid overemphasizing one particular relationship. Tend to several people and interests.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can see when someone needs help even before that person realizes the need. Your kind consideration may go unrecognized at first, but good karma will catch up to you before your head hits the pillow tonight.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People need what you have to offer; they just don't know it yet. That's why it's up to you to communicate clearly and effectively. Persuasion isn't necessary. All that's needed is honesty.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How do you know the difference between a passing fancy and a passion that will be a permanent fixture in your life? Time will tell. If you don't have time, consider that passing fancies usually come with a fever.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The reason you see more than other people do is because, on some level, you are willing to know more. Once you know, you can't un-know. That's why awareness takes courage.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 4). This is your year for making good on past promises and cashing in on what was promised to you. Organized, expertly executed actions get you attention and love in the six weeks to come. You'll earn an award in September for a game well played. October brings a formidable adversary. Libra and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 33, 28, 41, 16 and 39.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Gemini, born June 8, 1968, and I finally feel like I am in the relationship I have always wanted. He is respectful, kind and sensual and has all the qualities I've looked for in a man — he's a Sagittarius, born Dec. 20, 1964. In all of his actions, he acts like I am the one for him, but he says he's "not quite there yet." Why do I feel that hearing him tell me he loves me is that important, when it's obvious in his actions? I feel that words won't change a thing."

As a Gemini, you need verbal reassurances of love. While it's true that actions do speak louder than words, words rule your heart. There's nothing wrong with needing to be spoken to lovingly. Sweet utterances make you feel cherished. For a Sagittarius, love is in the doing. He might be thinking, "I'm here right now. Isn't that proof enough?" and that's his truth. If you ask him to say "I love you" before he's ready, he'll feel pressured. Don't you want the scene to play out more organically? You already have his heart. Trust that the words will follow.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to President Barack Obama, a Leo with natal Mercury and Uranus also in the sign of the charismatic cat. The fiery Leo energy in Obama's chart is balanced by a grounded Taurus moon and Mars in hardworking, humble Virgo. Virgo energy is all about efficiency and service. Other Leo presidents include: Benjamin Harrison, Herbert Hoover and Bill Clinton.
