What Are You Fighting For?


Memorial Day is for honoring the fallen who fought for what they believed in. The current battle between Mars, the warrior planet, and Neptune, the king of dreams, will beg the question, "What are you fighting for?" Whatever it is, you may get the chance in some small way to stand up for it today.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Words can be slippery. People rarely say what they mean, but you'll get both the deep and the surface meanings immediately because you're so good at reading people today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Peace of mind comes when you stop fighting with your own thoughts and start finding a gentler way to organize them. You can sort through your own mind with remarkable clarity today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll be interacting with many people over the course of the day, and you'll find each connection invigorating in its own way. You'll help, laugh, inform — all the things you do so well.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't forget your history — it will be a rich resource for you now. You'll solve today's problem by asking a few key questions: When did you face a similar situation? What did you do? What worked, and what didn't?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What you learned but didn't use is now sitting dormant in your mind. You'll discover this when you're asked to reach back and access it. It's amazing what you've retained.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Life will be like a classroom situation, and your "teacher" isn't going to point out what will be on the test, so you'll have to pay close attention.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will really listen to you now, so seize the opportunity to put your No. 1 message across. Keep it simple. If you don't know the real meaning, don't say it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know that you don't have to beat anyone else to win at life. That's why you treat everyone as an equal, and for the most part, today you'll get the same treatment right back.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The people who love, need and cherish you are around you — they just don't always prove themselves in this way. When you're not being treated the way you want to be treated, speak up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You just can't help it. Your body speaks your mind with every stance, gesture and expression.

If you want to project something, figure out how to get your mind in agreement first.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your capacity for meeting and greeting, charming and engaging knows no limits now, but you'll never benefit from this if you don't get into the mix.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What you wish were true about someone could get in the way of your learning what's actually true. Making assumptions can lead to problems down the line. Ask people about their backgrounds before you get down to business.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 25). Your generosity will attract stellar luck. When you invest in your loved ones, you bring good fortunate to all. In July, honor the traditions of your region and community, and money follows. Relationships get passionate and intense in August. You'll be motivated to make a change or to work for yourself in September. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 33, 21 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm miserable without my boyfriend. We broke up six months ago, and I want him back so badly. I dream about him every night. He's with someone else — a Capricorn who is three years younger than I am. I'm a Pisces, and my ex-boyfriend is a Taurus. Is there anything at all I can do to convince him that we are meant for each other? I'm a better person when he's in my life, and I can't bear to be without him."

Emotional self-sufficiency is attractive. When you lean on others emotionally, it only repels them. Your Taurus may or may not come back, but that is the least of your problems right now. If you feel that you cannot live happily without him, then you need to get in touch with who you are and what makes you happy. Pisces like you do well by placing yourself in positive environments — you soak up the good vibes like a sponge. What beautiful, intriguing world could you explore? It's time to shake up your life in a big way. Chances are, there's a place or an interest that's always intrigued you, and when you go there, your life will take on a new trajectory. Your current pain will fade.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: After 20 years of trying to persuade the rock 'n' roll manager Shep Gordon to tell his story, Mike Myers finally got his wish with the fascinating documentary "Supermensch," which Myers directed. The versatile, witty Gemini was born under a Cancer moon, which favors nurturing relationships and a rich home life. Myers has his Mars in entertaining Leo — well, duh!
