Tomorrow, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto all line up neatly in Capricorn like a rat pack stealing the stage circa 1960, or a brat pack on screen circa 1985. Whatever your preference of reference, today will have all the buzz of anticipation. Something is about to begin, and this is an excellent time to file in, face the stage and take your seat.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your identity isn't something you always think about, which is the healthy way to handle it. However, changing times cause you to consider yourself a little more than usual and make decisions about who you want to be going forward.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No matter how well you know someone, you can always learn more. Today, you'll jostle a relationship about a bit and something new will pop out like the secret compartment of an old jewelry chest.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You need help; someone needs to give you help. All is aligned perfectly for you to build your pitch. Highlight many benefits that will surely come to any assistant of yours.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll be happy about negotiating, if you do it for the right reasons. The best one will be that other people's contributions are worth the effort. However, you'll regret any compromise that's made to please or placate.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your feisty disposition makes you an exciting person to be around today, although there are always lines to be walked and crossed. Your tolerance for risk might be a little higher than is good for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you will experience a strong psychic connection and know just what another person needs without hearing it verbally expressed, taking action on this will be a delicate and tricky matter.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've selected interesting people and highlighted their best qualities, weaving together truly inspired social life. Any time you spend developing friendships contributes to this work of art.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There is a rather powerful intimacy in conflict, be it run-of-the-mill drama, arguments, power struggles or any disagreement. Consider carefully how you want to involve yourself in this way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You could pull out all the stops and show the full force and variance of your talent. Will they be blown away in multitudes? Probably. Also they'll be jealous and threatened. Diplomacy is showmanship. Hold back a little something.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Knowing you're not in control can be frightening or frustrating, especially when the situation is one you would normally handle without a problem. Try not to resist life's little natural spontaneous changes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People who are easy to be with give you a break from having to do emotional work. Laughter is restorative as is the idea that you're accepted for who you are, no pretense or cover necessary.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your joy cannot be derailed today. You plan for it, you stay focused on it, and you don't even bother to turn your head toward anything that might detract from your happiness.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 11). Never doubt your competence this year. You've been in charge of taking care of yourself for several thousands of days, and you've done an amazing job, all things considered. You'll take that experience and turn it into a remarkable relationship, a travel adventure and progress with the project that means the most to you. Cancer and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 8, 40 and 10.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "My husband and I have had several fights on the subject of raising our child. From my point of view, he lacks parenting skills or the natural instinct about how to discipline a 5-year-old girl. He needs to educate himself. From his point of view, I undermine his parenting efforts by interrupting his disciplinary measures, which consist of arguing endlessly with a 5-year-old. I can't listen to it! How can a Virgo and a Gemini get on the same page about raising an Aquarius child?"
You're right about the arguing. Your young Aquarius is so bright that she can keep the conversation going for as long as it takes to get her way. And she's met her match in the Gemini father, who might get so caught up his communication that he forgets he is dealing with a kindergartener's maturity level. However, your husband is also right. You need to get on the same page and present a united front. Whether it is a time out or the taking away of privileges, the consequences you and your husband agree upon should be delivered in a brief and unemotional manner.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: This year, Amanda Peet will star in season two of the contemporary crime drama "Dirty John" before traveling back in time to 19th-century New York in "The Gilded Age." Peet's natal Venus and Mars in Capricorn reveal the moxie and grit that drive a person to do what it takes to be great in both life and art. Several planets in Aquarius show a deep need to contribute to the public good.
