This cycle promises to be invigorating on …Read more. The Sun and Mars Say 'Protect the Rep' A person's reputation is a possession more valuable than any material item. But unlike a purse or jewelry, when a reputation is stripped away it does not make the thief any richer. This is why we must be very, very careful in what we say about other …Read more. Venus, Uranus and Pluto Strife The strife packed into the Venus and Uranus configuration is agitated by Pluto, calling from the far reaches of the solar system like a crazed sports fan angry with the play.

Children are often upset when adults laugh at their cute demeanor, unable to get what's so funny. You may feel like a child in some ways now, as the sun and Pluto align to bring challenges that are difficult to understand. With maturity comes the ability to look at oneself with objectivity, and hopefully with a sense of compassion and humor.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll finally have the chance to pursue an interest you've wanted to know more about for a long time now. You'll enjoy getting lost in a wealth of new information and experience.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll free your mind from material concerns and embrace a higher mindset. You'll find this easy to do, especially when you're in a relaxed environment surrounded by beauty.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can like and respect yourself even when you wish you would have acted differently or projected a different side of yourself. Your compassionate attitude will help you grow into the person you want to be.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You feel a sense of community around you. Because you are so multifaceted, you can connect with people on many different subjects. You'll have a knack for saying the thing that breaks the conversation wide open.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your creative energy will burn bright. Remember that this is not just about being able to paint or write a story. Creativity is what helps you solve a problem or make a relationship strong and special.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's not OK to quit when the going gets tough. On the other hand, it's silly to fight the currents of life by swimming upstream. Only you know when it's right to change direction.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The way you see a situation may be causing you stress. Ask a trusted friend to give you another perspective on the matter. You'll open your mind to a liberating viewpoint.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Studies prove that regular exercise bolsters your reserves of self-control. Even goals that are not fitness related will be more easily accomplished because of today's higher activity level.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There's a problem that keeps you from having what you dearly want. Truly, no one is to blame for this. You'll make headway once you decide that you're the one who will change the dynamic.


22-Jan. 19). Things of value will come easily to you. And if you recognize the value and cherish these things, you'll be among the few who do. Most people don't see the value of something until they are deprived of it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No time to stop and assess where you are. Keep going until you get a sense of pride and accomplishment. For you, this will come only at the very end of a project.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be the astute one in your group, and they really need you to point out the little signs of improvement you see. You'll note the incremental progress and inspire the others to continue forward.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 28). You promote harmony and cooperation wherever you go. People work together under your guidance. The actions you take in January have unusual and unexpected results, making it a memorable time. February brings freedom, and you'll adventure on through the spring. May features a meaningful commitment. Libra and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 21, 24, 30 and 14.

LIBRA POWER RESOLUTION FOR 2012: Consider choosing just one this year. You'll find this one easy to keep, and its benefits will be far-reaching:

Find daily inspiration. As the sign of the artist (and any task can be an art form, including homemaking, managing an office or closing a sale), you need inspiration to ignite your talents and drive you forward. When you're inspired, life isn't such hard work. You get down to business and do what you need to do to make your life happen the way you want it to happen. Unfortunately, life doesn't always put inspiration in your direct path. And you can't expect one source of inspiration to last you day after day. Better to feed your desire little by little every single day than to count on one event or person to fuel you on a regular basis.

LUCKIEST DAYS OF THE YEAR: January 11, 12, 13; February 5, 14, 15; March 13, 18, 31; April 19, 26, 27; May 1, 2, 3; June 7, 8, 9; July 4, 20, 21; August 9, 10, 18; September 2, 16, 17; October 3, 4, 5; November 21, 22, 23; December 5, 16, 29.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Gorgeous Capricorn Sienna Miller is a second-generation fashion model; her mother was a model, as well. Capricorn is the sign known to carry forward traditions, as well as build on those traditions. Miller, also an accomplished actress and fashion designer, has three planets in artistic Libra. Her label Twenty8Twelve is named for her date of birth.
