Venus, Jupiter and the Heart/Mind Battle Most people will find that the mind likes to be in charge, and the heart likes to let it think that is definitely the case. However, the harmony between Venus and Jupiter suggests that hearts won't go where they don't want to go. Furthermore, hearts …Read more. New Year's New Moon Welcome to the year of the Red Monkey!

If ever there was a time to lose sight of the big picture, it's now. The big picture can be needlessly daunting. Right now, it's enough just to trust that there is one. Progress happens one step at a time. The moon will have a grounding influence on our emotions as she enters Taurus. What was overwhelming seems suddenly doable.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can rely on other people to do what they said they would do, though you may have to issue friendly reminders. Also, make sure everyone is clear about what the task at hand really is.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't need to be told what to do or who to be, and you'll likely reject anyone who tries to guide you in this manner. But the one who tells you how to do a job well will get your attention and respect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can help others out and still have fun; you just have to get organized. When you think it through first, you'll put things together in a way that will help you get the most enjoyment out of your life.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though there are moments when you feel uncared for, there are more moments in which you realize you're being taken care of on all levels. It's as though some unseen force is putting you in the right place at the right time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll get the opportunity to show people what you can do best. And if you step up and let your talent be seen, more such opportunities will arise in the near future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There is not always a cure for what ails you, but sometimes the way you deal with a problem is even better than a cure. A system of management may now give you fresh life and vitality.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will try to put things in perspective for you, but that probably won't work. Who are they to tell you how to feel? If it's important to you, then it's important, period.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You see an opportunity, and yet this is no easy feat. You won't be able to simply "let it happen" on this one. If you want it to happen, you'll have to make it happen.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some people are disturbed by thoughts of the future. Not you. You know it will be better than the present because you keep getting more and more savvy about how to make it so.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's so much you take for granted about your own talents and strengths. You need someone to hold a mirror up to you.

Also, glimpsing into another person's life will make you feel more connected to your own.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're farther along in a project than you thought you'd be at this time. With a little more organization and the helping hand of a friend, you can finish this up or at least bring it to a workable end as early as tomorrow.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Life presents itself to you, and you feel the privilege in this. Your breath, your thoughts and fantasies, the filling of your senses — it's all a gift that you keep unwrapping.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 6). You will enjoy a harmonious existence with others. January brings the energetic jolt of exciting new ideas. Through spring, your domestic life will transform into a more organized and uplifting scene. June shows you on the receiving end of praise and awards. Family closeness will be the source of future happy memories. Taurus and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 14, 38, 19 and 50.

NUMEROLOGY FUN WITH NUMBER ONE: Do you know what your magic number is? You can get it by adding up all of the numbers of your birthday until you wind up with one number. For instance, all the numbers in the birthday 12/6/1972 add up to 28, and then two plus eight equals 10, and then one plus zero equals one. So the final number is one.

If one is also your magic number, you have no worries. It is not, as a certain song suggests, "the loneliest number" after all — far from it. The number one is powerful, associated with the warrior spirit of Aries. It's the number of excitement and new beginnings. One people are constant reminders to the rest of us that each person is responsible for creating his or her own life. And because one people believe this and act on the belief daily, they are a source of inspiration to others. Ones are often highly alert and decisive with a strong impulse to get in on the action and let life take care of the details.

Quote for ONE: "Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them — every day begin the task anew." — Saint Francis de Sales

CELEBRITY PROFILES: "I almost had a psychic girlfriend, but she left me before we met," says the mind-bending comedian Steven Wright. This avant-garde humor springs from a Sagittarian born when Mercury was also in the open, curious, independent-thinking station of Sagittarius. Wright also has natal Uranus and Pluto both in the entertaining sign of Leo.
