Mars in Scorpioq Mars will bust a move out of the diplomatic realm of Libra (which wasn't the easiest placement for such an aggressive planet) and into the straightforward realm of Scorpio (a more comfortable fit for the scorpion).

Leo New Moon


Actors who judge their characters are not able to play them as convincingly as those who bring a great deal of nonjudgmental compassion to their art. Similarly, we are all more effective under this Leo new moon when we accept ourselves. Play the action instead of commenting on it with the conventional opinions.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you've asked for help from your partner and it hasn't worked, change your question. This person may not be able to give what you're asking, but will likely give something else and gladly. It's just a matter of finding the right match.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Remaining true to yourself requires first that you know yourself, which is not an automatic thing. It requires trial and error. You often have to do what feels wrong before you realize what feels right for you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Anyone can be nice when the circumstances are comfortable, relaxed and conducive to social discourse. The true testament of character is how people behave in times of stress. You'll be patient no matter what.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There's a pattern emerging between you and a loved one, so give it a good thorough look. Recognize it — that way you can change it up if it doesn't suit you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). To you, a ringing phone is a suggestion, not an imperative. Honor your own sense of privacy. There's wisdom in controlling the flow of communication.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may operate in an awkward, quirky way, but the result is still the same as if you had pulled it off with the intended smoothness and grace: People will smile and laugh and be happy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're content, and you don't want to rock the boat, especially when you've worked so hard to maintain a delicate balance. Consider that conflict is not always a negative, and in today's case, it could actually be good for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your social life is awhirl. The best influences are people who are not too much like you. Friendship is at its best and most exciting when it presents an opportunity to do something beyond your normal scope.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are supportive of friends and family, but don't leave yourself out of the mix. Someone close is ready to give you what you want. Ask for help, and then trust and get ready to graciously accept it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The spiritual gift of the day is larger and more profound than any material thing could be, although the feeling of it is simple, light and joyous.

This one is life changing.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As it is with rain on the wedding day, the appearance of something unwanted heralds untold beauty and richness with its passing. Recognize the fertile ground an inconvenient detail brings.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Yes, you do what you love. But how often? Not often enough, if today's lack of enthusiasm is any indication. Rediscover that energy you had not long ago by putting more "you" into your "you" time.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 26). Benevolent forces are on your side. Give up your resistance and dive into love in August, and then sit back and enjoy the onslaught of good fortune. September begins an exploration that leads to personal growth but lines the pockets, too. October is lush with social fun. November highlights your serious, dedicated side. Gemini and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 3, 33, 21 and 19.

LEO SUN SAYS, "EMBRACE THIS": This week we entered the realm of the playful Leo sun. Leo is the sign of creativity, children, show business and ... hugs! Leo rules the heart, and nothing says "I heart you" more than a hug that puts your heart very near to the heart of another. Here's more to embrace during the Leo solar transit:

1. Embrace being misunderstood. The people who don't understand you will be your best audience — and not because they'll laugh or cry at the right time; they won't. But they will make you work harder to realize yourself. They make you communicate more clearly. OK, maybe they'll never get it, and that's fine, too. Their misunderstanding will challenge you to be clearer with yourself.

2. Embrace abnormality. Normal is boring, mostly because there is no normal. So why worry about it? Just do what's you. Some will agree, some will protest, some will scoff. Who cares as long as you're not hurting anyone?

3. Embrace now. If you're reading this right now, I'm going to assume that now is the time you're living in. Yeah, it has its problems. It's not ideal for the things you want to do or the way you want it to be. But it's what you've got. Waste one iota of time complaining about it, and you're missing the fun.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Sandra Bullock will lend her lovely voice to "Minions," the newest in the mega-hit "Despicable Me" movie series. As Scarlet Overkill, America's sweetheart will get the rare chance to play a super-villain. This loveable Leo was born when Mercury was also in the sign of the cat and entertainment. Bullock's moon is in Aquarius, the sign of philanthropy, which is another important aspect of Bullock's life work.
