There's the way you see yourself, and there's the way the world sees you. Between the two there is a gap that varies in size depending on the person. With this Uranus change, there are very real benefits to shoring up discrepancies of perception. Ask for feedback and advice. Record yourself — anything to get closer to a shared reality.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The I Ching suggests that natural attractions are futile to resist, though maybe resistance itself is the problem. Your best moments come through a state of surrender and complete welcoming.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The same event could bring tears or bursts of laughter. Either way, it makes you feel a little more alive just to know that all these feelings are running through you, ready to find expression.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Knowing and trusting yourself usually comes easily to you, but occasionally you hit pockets of self-doubt that cause you to reassess. It's all part of the pleasure for people like you who choose to stay fresh and relevant.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The event du jour comes with a side of nervous energy. Consider it a cosmic treat. You'll have to push through to find (and expand) the limits of your comfort zone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The quickest way to give yourself a boost is to go for a walk in the open air. Once the endorphins are released, so will be your creativity, and new problem-solving ideas will flow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don't have to seek special programs or go out of your way to develop yourself. Everything good in the way of building character comes from simply rising to the challenges of life that present themselves.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Among the ultimate freedoms is a freedom from reactivity. In losing your fears and triggers, you receive life's wide and beautiful range of options — choices that are only available to those liberated enough to notice them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One mode of operating does not fit all. If there's one thing that will change the outcome, it's the pause you take to read the room. You'll be shifting gears to fit the various moments of the day.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). All of the feelings you'll have today will pass, be they good, bad, big or small. What sticks around longer is the narrative woven around it all. That can be tiresome. Consider skipping that part if you can.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The fun part of dancing, conversing, playing ball and so many other things we do in life together is the slightly unpredictable nature of the back-and-forth bounce. The important part here isn't grace; it's reciprocity.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The best teacher for you right now is one you don't have to pay. You can't pay for the subtle give and take you need. The buy-in is done at a soul level with negotiations that are wordless and emotional.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What's broken? Nothing and no one. Things happen, and they need to be dealt with, not analyzed to death. Take out the drama and the problem just might eject right along with it.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 10). Presentation earns points! You have a way of making a package irresistible, and it applies to how you show up in the world and all you put into it. You're thoughtful; you research; and your timing is impeccable. You'll be hired and entertained, cherished and awarded, and most delighted by the smiles you put on other faces. Pisces and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 39, 33, 1 and 18.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You can't conjure a special fondness in your mind. You have to interact in person, and then you just feel it and know. TAURUS: The magic words are "You were right." GEMINI: Playing love scenes in your mental theater is a powerful exercise that helps you manifest love. CANCER: You see relationship omens gather like distant clouds and welcome the excitement in this change of weather. LEO: There's a level of selfishness that makes sense, is appropriate and is even necessary to keep the relationship going. You're way under your quota. VIRGO: You still think about that certain person, and perhaps it's better in thought form than it would be in real life. LIBRA: Don't be afraid to dive in. This love will be quite like other things you have handled — and handled well. SCORPIO: Are you getting what you need? Acting out can be makeup for feelings of deprivation. SAGITTARIUS: You have a long-term effect on others. CAPRICORN: With a gleam in your eye, you will tease, poke fun and make things more interesting. AQUARIUS: The roles you grew up seeing are not the ones that you'll take on in the future. You're making this up as you go. PISCES: You can't turn back time, but you will get the chance to make a current situation right with a lesson you learned back there.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Leo and Capricorn are the sort of love match that creates fundamental and far-reaching change with their connection. Like the butterfly that flaps its wings, bringing back a tsunami in another part of the world, the decisions these two make together matter in ways they may or may never know about. Intention counts, though! The sweeter and more lovingly they interact, the better the world gets.
