The sun breaks into the realm of Aquarius, and the fiery Sagittarius moon reflects its light. Ideas fall like snowflakes, unique, delicate, landing beautifully. Practical ideas will be immediately actionable; impractical ones are fanciful flight tickets. Take advantage of this burst of intellectual energy by moving quickly on the ideas that might help everyone get what they need.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Figuring out your priorities will be fun, easy and worthy work. The clearer you get about your values, the higher the quality of your thoughts will be. Your mind will organize itself to rally around what you deem important.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Negative thought loops are caused by too much introspection, rumination and self-involvement. The remedy is simple. Tune into other people's needs and see what you can do. Suddenly, you're 10 times happier.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are small words that fly on mighty wings. Love is in that mix. So is the admission of humility that comes in the simple series, "I don't know." That one can open worlds.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe your work is self-explanatory, but the truth is that people still need help understanding. Tell, show them, and then teach it again in a different way. Do what it takes to hook them. Then, hop on the success train.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). On the highway of life, you have to be willing to change lanes, slow down and leave via the exit once in a while. Sure, there's life in the race, but it really pales when compared with life beyond those exits.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you look around, you'll either observe a powerful beauty or feel a beautiful power. You'll commit wholly to the moment, seeking to understand and be a part of this.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Today's mystic image is the tarot card "strength," in which a woman tames a lion using only tenderness. An infinity halo hovers, a reminder that fortitude is a crown from the eternal realms. You couldn't shake it if you tried.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While there's no real glee in having to scrape together resources, there's something oddly satisfying about this excuse to call on people and find out the extent of generosity in their nature.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will allow yourself to dissolve into the contemplation of creating. The workaday world evaporates as you're snatched out of the constant flux and thrust into the world of ideas.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though you do everything to aim your being toward joy, you'll relate to the Romantic poet William Wordsworth when he wrote of "that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts bring sad thoughts to the mind."
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There's an irreversible friction between a feeling and its opposite. Knowing what the opposite actually is will be a helpful processing tool, i.e.: admiration and loathing, fear and anger, anticipation and surprise, etc.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Because things are more beautiful when they are true, you'll think twice about certain so-called improvements, especially if they are costly and aimed toward meeting some sort of societal ideal.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 20). Your mind lights up with big ideas, and soon you'll have several exciting projects on deck. Narrow it down. Plan well. Guard your time. With an accountability partner, you'll keep everything on course. March brings a prize. You'll journey with a kindred spirit. There's a healing in April that brings relief to your whole family. Leo and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 44, 48, 9 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "What does it mean when you meet or see someone and you feel in your guts that you've met them before; however, you know you actually never have? And what about when you feel that you are meant to be, even though you never talked to them extensively? It can't just be sexual attraction, although that is also very much there. There's a stronger connection, but I can't put my finger on it. I'm an Aquarius; he is a Sagittarius."
I would characterize it as either past life stuff or destiny's tap, but I wouldn't bring it up to the party in question. The feeling that you've known someone is beautiful for its rarity, and the thrilling immediacy and strange comfort it brings — a sensation of coming back to the long lost.
Where it gets dangerous is in assuming you know things about him that you really don't. Just be careful to pay attention and get to know who is really standing before you instead of relying on the picture and story that's already in your mind about who this is. That's either a remembrance or a projection, neither of which has to do with right now. Try to stay in the moment with this.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Perhaps best known for his portrayal of Dwight Schrute on the television series "The Office," Rainn Wilson actually has little in common with the beet-farming, egomaniacal Schrute. Perhaps the Capricorn comic master tapped into his natal alignment of the sun, moon and Mercury in Capricorn for motivation. Capricorn energy is ambitious, organized and keen to sort out and rule power structures. These talents can be effectively applied toward mastery in any area of life.
