Cosmic Prep Time


Tomorrow brings big change. There will be a partial solar eclipse, a new moon and a solar change, and to top it off, Venus will change signs, too. Today will seem mighty calm comparatively, and that's something to take advantage of. What needs doing? Handle the little details you won't have time for tomorrow.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not think your contributions are up to par, but give anyway. Something will be better than nothing. Plus, you'll learn from the effort and do even better next time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have an entire drawer filled with things you save for "just in case," but the moment to use them hasn't come in years. It's purge time! Something has to go in order for you to make way for the future.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be in the right place at the right time to hear what wasn't originally intended for you. This will turn out to be fortunate, indeed. It will be exactly what you need to know.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's becoming clear that you need more training in order to become proficient at the job you want to do. Your eagerness to learn combined with persistence will eventually make you a master.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Everyone starts out without knowledge and muddles through life making do with what they are given. You have respect for them all today, regardless of station and achievement. Everyone is doing their best.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll be duly impressed by a production, but do not start comparing yourself to what you see. Don't get so blown over by the outcome of work that you fail to see all that went into it. Nothing gets done without effort.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don't have to do anything exciting; you only have to be you. And guess what? Someone wants to be a part of your life, the day-to-day process of it, the minutiae and the broad strokes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Dorothy had to land in Oz to appreciate everyone she left back home. This is the perfect day to buy your ticket, especially if your trip isn't for a few weeks.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your mind is occupied with thoughts of how you'll entertain your crew. You want to create an atmosphere where they feel free to be the interesting and lively people they are.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Self-knowledge will require some effort and experimentation on your part.

Also, it helps to talk to your family. Someone has a key bit of information that will help you know yourself more thoroughly.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Maybe you'll figure out that you're not as good at something as you thought you were, but this is not cause for embarrassment or regret. You need to believe in yourself all along the way in order to get better.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Whatever the nature of your work, there is an art to it. You've become more than proficient — you're an artist. Thinking of yourself this way will be the key to your success and well-being today.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 22). The universe respects your agenda, though it will definitely make a few changes and throw you for a loop — all intended to better your fortunes. Your positive and open-minded outlook combined with a good product will attract buyers, and you'll cash in in December, May and July. Spring brings more love into your world. Pisces and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 17, 9, 24 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Gemini in love with a Taurus. We're both in other relationships. It's been over for us for two years now, but he still has yet to tell me why he ended things. I always felt he was my soul mate and that we were meant to be together."

I can't answer for your Taurus, but I can say his silence speaks: Taurus men are notably strong, silent types, and resorting to guerilla communication tactics (which means nothing less than shameless, ruthless honesty on your part) could get enough of a rise out of him to speak his piece. Yes, you, dear Gemini, could push enough buttons to pull it off. But on a gentler, kinder note, I encourage you to seek closure from your own heart. You've moved on. And if you are in a relationship that you want to preserve, in the spirit of mutual trust, love the one you're with. As a Gemini, living a parallel or double life has incredible appeal and is dangerously unstable for your current relationship. Taurus was your soul mate more than two years ago. Your soul mate right now deserves your undivided attention and love.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Physician, guru and renowned author Deepak Chopra is among the biggest celebrities of the New Age movement. Whether he's debating with the world's top scientists, discussing the afterlife with spiritual leaders or hanging out with Lady Gaga, this lighthearted Libra (born under a Libra moon, too) brings an intelligence and levity to even the most serious endeavors.
