Venus, Pluto and the Inner Game


Venus and Pluto align to highlight the quiet power of an inner game. Nature and destiny you have set certain elements in place so we don't have to do all the work. In fact, all we have to do is show up with a pure intention, a willingness to put forth the best effort (if it comes to that) and the confidence to deliver when the time comes.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Everyone needs attention. There are those around you who seem to need it more than others and for some strange reason that makes you less likely to give it to them. It's human nature. You'll use the principle to your advantage.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The conversation you really need to have is between you and you. The topic is, after all, a secret no one else really needs to know right now. You're entitled to your private world. They may want in, but you don't owe that to anyone.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The thing that makes a bell a bell is its sound. The thing that makes a pen a pen is that it can write. As for you, you are a far more complex being and there is not one thing that you need to do to be who you are.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're friendly, which will serve you well now since you don't know the ones you need to know to get the job done. When in doubt, introduce yourself. The one who can help you best is close at hand.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe you didn't mean to, but you tipped your cards, showing the fondness you feel for another through good-natured teasing or lighthearted banter. There's a unique bubble of fun around the two of you now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you want to laugh hard (and possibly clean up a horrible mess later) just assume that the rest of the world has the same ideas as you do about what's appropriate to the situation at hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Stand your ground. You can afford to be cheeky at this point. Plus, you'll be endowed with the trust of the group for being strong in who you are. Of course, you're basically interested in impressing that one certain person.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can lay all the groundwork perfectly and set yourself up with a fully functioning track to happiness. But still there are no guarantees. Doing the work isn't enough. You also must take a risk, climb on board and ride the ride.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). While seeking the very best that's out there, you may just find there is nothing but the best to choose from.

Much depends on the fit and how well you know the particulars of what you need.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The idea that begins in brilliance will end there, too, as long as you know to get out when the brilliance is still happening. You have several weeks to work this through.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your issue will become a non-issue in a matter of moments. You have the answers and know how to apply them, so all you have to do is methodically walk yourself through this.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You need more support. The person who is busy patting himself on the back isn't going to have a hand free to applaud your achievement. You'll get it when you actively seek friendship with modest and attentive people.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 5). You'll put yourself in a better position, and then start seeing things clearly. A friend comes along to help with this. The next four weeks will bring many exercises in perspective. A single decision will lead to a completely new you by April. May brings money, applause and emotional support. July puts a vendetta to rest. Cancer and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 39, 33, 1 and 40.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: A good omen will be something friendlier than a handshake, less intimate than a kiss. TAURUS: You don't know who's going to fall in love with you, and you won't find out until you put yourself out there. GEMINI: Look for places you can "be" fun instead of "have" fun and the fun follows you wherever you go. CANCER: The special energy in your gaze is all the communication you need to start a fire. LEO: There's a love event in the distant future; the more planning you can do now, the better. VIRGO: You've many plans for your relationship. It can all happen, just not all at once. LIBRA: There are so many people who you see and think, "That should be me." Don't get jealous; get busy. SCORPIO: You're not all powerful, so nothing is all your doing. Nor is it all your fault. SAGITTARIUS: The difficulties of love are difficult to foresee. Form a mental vision of your goal in love and cling to it. CAPRICORN: Love will make you fight for your ideas, support your arguments and justify your choices. AQUARIUS: In love it's better to ask a dumb question than to make a dumb mistake. PISCES: Becoming clearer about your priorities will smooth love's path. List what matters in the order of importance.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Capricorn and Aquarius are zodiac neighbors who share a sense of social responsibility. Capricorn is driven to build the profile, stature and means to meet certain needs of society, whereas Aquarius works through groups, connecting individuals with a common purpose to create change. These two could now bond permanently in love as they go forward together to serve the bigger picture.
