Venus Pulls at Pluto Venus and Pluto still in opposition have us looking at the big picture. What exactly are the stakes? There has to be something important to win or lose, or there is no reason to play the game. That's not to say the prize is tangible — some of …Read more.

FOR RELEASE: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012
Everything that is in the world started out as an idea. Yesterday's Pisces moon favored imagination and flights of fancy. Hopefully, there was something in those dreams that you can act on now, bringing the intangible into a physical form. The moon moves into Aries bringing with it the particular kind of alchemy needed to give form to thought.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ask for advice and opinions, but don't be too quick to incorporate everything you hear. Don't change your ways just to get the right response. You know more than you think you know.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you listen closely, you'll find that people will tell you who you are. They may not even realize they are doing it, but they feel a need for you to be who they want you to be. Resist. Take the time to decide what you think.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A solo effort will be brilliant. You'll be surprisingly comfortable addressing the needs of the day alone. Maybe you'll even try harder because you're not relying on others.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can feel good about many of the things you've done in your life. Mentally scan through some of your history, and you'll bring a wave of happy contentment upon yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The authority figures in your life are losing their influence over you. By what standard would you judge your own success if you didn't have the example put forth by your parents, your boss or anyone else?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll love the way another person sees you. It changes who you think you are, inspires arduous feelings in you and raises you to a state of complete enchantment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's not enough just to mention what you want. You'll have to bring it up again and again so that people remember. They want to help you, but you have to teach them how.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't have to worry about what your loved ones will say about you when you're not there. People will be as loyal to you as you are to them. Your reputation is growing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The day starts off scattered, but your mind will get extremely focused once you complete a ritual to focus it. The ritual could be as simple as writing down your top aim and then giving yourself a timeframe in which to accomplish it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll get the vague notion that something needs to be done, followed by a strong instinct as to precisely what that is and who should do it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll be good at the games that get played regularly in your circle. Some of these are actual competitions with rules. Some of them are subconscious games to establish social order.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Wanting and needing to make a change won't inspire you as much as physical and mental discomfort will. It's only when your comfort zone becomes a discomfort zone that you will be inspired to make the change.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 18). The world seems to know that you're serious about getting what you want. You'll assert yourself and watch the doors open wide. Your strongest financial opportunities come this month and next. Someone falls for you and falls hard. You'll bond with people you trust in July and possibly start a business together. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 1, 28 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "Months ago, you started a series on how each of the sun signs handles stress. However, that series has yet to be completed; it only went up to Leo, I think. I would really like to see what's said for my own sign (Pisces), and the signs for a couple of people I know. Will you be completing this series sometime in the near future?"
This has been a test of the cosmic broadcast system... Thank you for your interest and your astute observation. And because you asked, I will pick up at Virgo tomorrow. To give you a sneak preview of what I'll write about Pisces: You Pisces people are particularly sensitive to stress triggers and must take extra precautions to protect yourselves. And though it requires more effort and planning just to be comfortable in this high-intensity world, it's probably a worthwhile trade considering the many gifts that come with your sensitive nature.
Your high level of awareness is a gift to the world, and you can make a difference to many by issuing your sweet brand of "wake-up call." I just experienced it in this note from you, and I am happy to know you!
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Socialite and reality-television star Kourtney Kardashian is an Aries with Mercury and Mars in the fiery sign, as well. These stars show intensity and a certain fearlessness. Her moon in Capricorn indicates tremendous business savvy and a desire to amass concrete assets. The Capricorn influence adds some down-to-earth grounding to all that passionate Aries energy.
