Dreaming bigger isn't so hard, but bigger isn't always better. Go sideways with your project today. What if it were a different color, a different country, if it happened at night instead of day, or at dawn instead? Include others in your brainstorms under the Capricorn moon because crusades of imagination will be bonding experiences.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know who needs help. You can see it in their eyes, their body language, word choices... this is delicate. Proceed gently, letting people know you are open to hearing and understanding them without directly asking.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A gift can feel like a burden when you don't know quite how to use it. Take a breath, thank the giver (or your lucky stars, if appropriate), and then don't worry so much about it. Let this develop naturally.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As it turns out, what you used to think was your fault is not your fault at all. There were obstacles you couldn't understand at the time, factors in play that preceded your involvement. So shake off the guilt. It never was yours.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). This isn't a competition. You don't have to be the best, brightest, most creative, quickest, coolest or anything else. What you really need to be is finished with this deal so you can move on.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just because the tag is missing doesn't mean it's free. Similarly, just because you do not currently understand the emotional cost of an interaction, it doesn't mean there won't be one.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are many people who will be very happy to see you do well. Knowing this will be a key part of your motivation. If you start to lose steam, then just imagine the smiles on their faces when you cross the finish line.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Human interaction involves a million tiny details. You'll never get all of them right. So don't harp on the little things that go terribly wrong. That's part of it. Maybe even the best part.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Find the real thing. There will be no good substitutes. The fakes could work for a few days, but they won't stand the test of time. So go a quest, if you have to, looking for the genuine article.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It's good to know people's reason for doing what they do, especially if they're doing it with you. Of course, they may not be aware of the reasons themselves, but don't let that deter you. You're very perceptive now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Maybe you don't think what you're doing is all that special, but it's really not for you to say. How could you? You're too close to the work to see what the others see, or to know the true value you bring.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're feeling empowered to follow your own whims, especially when they lead you to different physical locations than you normally haunt. You'll go where you please, and you'll please where you go.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). "Don't wake up a sleepwalker," they say, though it's unclear what would happen if you did. And what of the sleepwalking that doesn't involve REM? The urge to gently nudge the wrongheaded may be too interesting to resist.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 25). With curiosity as your guide, life unfolds before you in strange and unexpected ways. You'll partner with people as adventurous as you are to terrific ends. You've a knack for attracting the right people to advance the thing you're working on at the moment, both personally and professionally. Aries and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 3, 30, 44 and 10.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My birthday is Jan. 26, 1974, my man's is Feb. 16, 1976. Will this ever work out? Or should I just give up and move on? He says he cares, but I feel he is just saying that not to hurt me."
You are an Aquarius with Mercury, Venus and Jupiter also in Aquarius. You are terrific at friendship and so keenly aware of social nuances and niceties, which is why you pick up on your Aquarian man's indifference. What is so interesting is that you have much in common. You both have natal sun and Mercury in Aquarius. There is a clear line of communication between you. You really do get him. Your love planet, Venus, in Aquarius tells me that you could hang on a really long time with the special friendship you have, quietly pining for more. Considering his Venus in Capricorn, I think it's usually his work and his ambitions in life that keep him from moving forward with love. It's really not you; it's just that he's not ready for a heavy commitment. Moving on will be excellent for your relationship and for your heart. Chances are, as soon as you do, he'll come chasing after you.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Renee Zellweger will play Judy Garland in a musical drama about the iconic star's life during in concert circa 1968. Even though Zellweger is a down-to-earth Taurus, she connects with the legendary vaudevillian in the spirit of a strong Leo current in both of their charts. Leo is the energy of entertainment. For Zellweger, it her emotional moon, and for Garland it was dreamy Neptune.
