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!

Mercury is a busy fellow today. First he forms a lucky angle to stern old Father Time (Saturn), and then he slips into the watery realm of the fish. Once he's completely immersed in the ocean of Pisces, he forms an alliance with King Neptune. The powerful relationship of emotion, intention, word and deed will progress the action.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Resolutions don't have to last the whole year. Make a resolution intended for just this one brand-new day. The shorter time span will make it easier to keep. You can always resolve again tomorrow if you wish.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's still time to plan an extremely thoughtful gesture for your loved ones to celebrate their role in your life. Take action, and this Valentine's Day may be the best one ever.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your schedule may be dominated by other people's needs. Therefore, you may not be able to fully concentrate on the things that matter most to you. Take heart. Your time is coming, and soon.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Be alert to subtle changes manifesting in your daily life. Take each clue separately, and it won't amount to much. But start adding up all of the little details, and you'll understand the larger meaning.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It takes daring to share your creativity with others. You're open, and you'll let your energies combine, fuse and merge, trusting that together you'll come up with something workable and perhaps even beautiful.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Without tension, there can't be power. Without a catalyst, there won't be a flame. You'll rise to the occasion at hand, embracing the dualities that make life truly interesting.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The flicker of anticipation will be brief. Some things seem destined to end before they begin. Take it as a sign that you were meant for bigger and better realities.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Vent your strong feelings. Keeping them to yourself only serves to create energetic blockages in your body, especially your knees and joints. So express what you feel when you feel it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don't have to take yourself too seriously or be responsible for absolutely everything that happens. Lighten up. In some instances, you're a cog in the wheel and not the engine that makes it turn.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some people around you seem to intuitively know that in order to get attention they must inspire a feeling in others.

An impression that causes shock, disgust or laughter will be most memorable.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There's so much to do that you could feel paralyzed by the overwhelming number of choices. Focus on taking good care of yourself, and you'll be successful in all that follows.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The situation involves you, but it's not about you. You are ready to let go of a small piece of your ego and let whatever happens just happen. Boundaries dissolve, and you'll reach higher ideals.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 13). Loving bonds are forged in adventure and travel throughout the year. Your commitment to a cause in March will make a difference in the world while introducing you to a new social network. Loving your work has something to do with the promotion you get in April. Save up for a spectacular opportunity in June. Gemini and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 24, 39 and 18.

VALENTINE'S DAY FOR WATER SIGNS: Last week's Valentine's Day suggestions went out to the fire, earth and air signs. This year the water signs (that's Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) are feeling sentimental and will either leap at this chance to share their amorous feelings or cringe at the thought of having to be so vulnerable. Feelings run deep for water signs and are not always so easily expressed. Luckily, the current position of Mercury and Saturn lends greater ease to the process of finding just the right words, actions and gifts to match what's in the water-sign's heart.

The most important part of your Valentine's Day exchange will be the way your gift is given. Allot plenty of time to lovingly wrap whatever token of affection you decide on; the item itself is not important as long as you put some thought behind it. Practice the wording of your card on a separate paper before you commit it to ink. Work it out, and think about what you'll say aloud, too. These steps will take longer than you think they will, so whatever time you plan to spend on the details of this presentation, double it. This forethought will make your Valentine's Day offerings a hit.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: "Wizards of Waverly Place" star Jennifer Stone has been in show business since age 6 and plans to continue the trend. The redheaded Aquarius follows her philanthropic spirit by encouraging other actors, artists and musicians to give their time and talent to help children battling serious illness. Her work with Art of Elysium helps empower children through creativity and the arts.
