Make it easy on yourself by involving the people around you in your mission. A burst of …Read more. Assumption-Averse Skies The sun and Pluto square off a few hours before Mars and Neptune form a complicated opposition. Expectations sometimes make it so — but not today. Going in with one idea of the situation may cause a person to make mistakes that could have been …Read more. Innocent Sky The planets are moving toward two tense alignments that will be exact tomorrow. Curiosity is piqued. Knowledge seekers become more intent. Soon innocence will give way to experience, and there will be a fancy cocktail of mixed emotions to wash it …Read more.

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.
