FOR RELEASE: MONDAY, APRIL 9, 2012
The adventurous spirit of the Sagittarius moon rules the better part of the day, featuring expansive thought and action. Also, it's the last day of Pluto's direct motion until mid-September. Tomorrow, the dwarf planet, a.k.a. Captain Underworld, goes retrograde to help us review and assess what it means to be human on our own medium-sized planet.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your mood is curious, experimental and creative. It takes an open mind and heart to live in this headspace. You'll take a suggestion, try it on and see where it leads you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You've probably heard that antibiotics arose from the accidental contamination of a Petri dish. Mistakes can bring about glorious events and discoveries. Be open to the magic that might come of a blunder.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Something about your chemical and emotional makeup will work in favor of creating harmony for yourself and others around you. You have a talent for neutralizing acidic personalities.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're firing on all cylinders and will be especially intuitive, as well. When you look at a person, you can see the chemistry, habits, emotions and ideas that helped to form this individual.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The sector of the brain that responds to feelings of love is different from the one that responds to feelings of attraction, but the two can light up at the same time, which is what happens today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Any regret you'll have in life will have, at its root, a poor decision. To minimize your regrets, maximize your ability to make quality decisions. Think long term. Ten years from now, what will you wish you would have done? Do it now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your collaborations will be free of conflict. This is easiest, but will it bring about the best result? Ask someone to play devil's advocate by trying to shoot down your plan. You'll learn how to make it bulletproof.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In determinate games, the starting player can always win if he knows the strategy. In indeterminate games, two perfect players could play on forever. Play your love life like an indeterminate game.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll enjoy connecting with an attractive someone on matters of mutual interest. You're likely to be further besotted if this person also happens to agree with your worldview
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A sign mate declared, "He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You know you're passionate when you can't get enough of your subject matter. Your energy only increases as you learn and practice. The more you engage your talents in the matter the more prolific you become.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The spirit of play is alive in you. Engaging the right playmates will be key to maintaining this buoyant energy throughout the day. You'll gravitate to flexible thinkers and emotionally agile people.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 9). Your horizons open with new possibilities, starting with a change in your inner circle. Make room in your heart to love a new addition. June sees you putting a talent handed down through your ancestry to good use. Your public and private personae merge in interesting ways when you're spotlighted in August. Pisces and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 40, 21, 6 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "Dear Holiday: As Christians, we are not supposed to read horoscopes. (Not only that, but I had a bad experience with them several years ago.) But it seems like every time I meet someone I like, my curiosity gets the best of me. I started reading your horoscopes in our local newspaper. So far, I have found your horoscope to be very accurate for my zodiac (Cancer). I have even acted on what was said in someone else's reading (Scorpio), and it turned out just the way you said. At this time, I'm not taking the readings too seriously, only because I don't need another emotional breakdown, but I just thought you might like to know that so far you're doing well."
I'm happy to hear that you're getting some insight out of reading about your sign and also the Scorpio sign — two water signs that are deeply and inexplicably connected. I encourage you to always do what you feel drawn to do and never give a horoscope, an astrologer or anyone else for that matter more power than your own intuition. I believe you are being divinely guided to read and do what is helpful and peaceful for you.
