Sagittarius is a fiery station for Mars. Anger stuff comes up. The gurus say meet anger with virtue — but how? It might be as simple as pausing to listen to what anger has to say. No need to rush to resolution. Also note that anger is like hazardous waste. It shouldn't be kept, but you also have to be careful how you get rid of it. Anger responsibly.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you had to boil the day's focus down to four words it would be along the lines of: Fix stuff about money. What's getting in the way, mostly, are your feelings about what you deserve or what's possible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your mind, when left to its own devises, can be like a tired toddler throwing tantrums. Lead yourself. Any way that you can promote positive emotions and language will be a very welcome assertion into the mental landscape.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you eliminate energy drag, positive things will have a chance to resonate faster and more powerfully. So what can you cut out? What's taking up more space than it's worth?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Books will teach you lessons that others have learned. That works just fine, but it's no shortcut. The lessons that really matter are the ones you learn through your own experience.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Money flows toward stability and away from instability. Another way to state it is that money flows toward trust. You'll get evidence that trust is building. This takes time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll look at all sides of an issue and tap into the way other people are experiencing it, too. This only adds to your awareness and helps you make even better decisions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sociability requires resonance. You cannot be aware of others if you're not aware of yourself. There's much to gain by being generally aware and observant.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People disrupt and distract you, but only if you let them. You have to hook into a thing for it to be a distraction. Consider your part in it. With awareness, you can flow your attention to where you most want it to go.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don't need to change what you do. It's hard that way. What are you assuming? What are you thinking? These might be easier places to start to change.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The experience of another person is an impossible thing to have but an admirable thing to try to have. A little of it will sink in for your efforts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's one of those quick-slow-slow days. Rhythms will be established. Be aware of what speed is needed. Look for the patterns. What's involved here is the art of shifting gears.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A congratulatory action is in order. Put your hand up, and let the universe high-five you back. The long and the short of it? This triumph is all yours.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 5). Just because you've done things one way doesn't mean that's the way you always will. Transformations start small. You have the confidence and courage to take action and do some things less conventionally. You'll make a big sale next season, and this gives you mobility. Love's exchange will bring great joy. Libra and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 3, 33, 38 and 11.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The full moon in the sign of domesticity comes with a lunar eclipse. On the same day, the sun and Mercury align in Capricorn and Uranus goes direct. With so many aspects speaking to the cosmic weather, we can expect strange combinations. Just as in meteorology — cold fronts and warm fronts don't necessarily follow each other in an orderly procession — feelings and events of different tones don't automatically line up in a way that's easy to comprehend. What is the emotional equivalent of an occluded front? Feelings get shoved behind other feelings. Cyclonic processes could be next in the mashup, and even if it doesn't culminate in a proper storm, the climate becomes less predictable.
These signals are all opportunities for greater awareness, especially about other people's feelings, how to react to them and how to leverage or protect them.
Monks of Tibet believe that the lunar eclipse has a way of multiplying tenfold the effects of karma. Given the augmentation of Mars in Sagittarius, consider staying on superstition's safe side by only committing acts of goodness (or badness) that you wouldn't mind receiving back in the scale of an additional zero.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Quintessential '60s housewife Betty Draper is but one of the many colors of versatile actress January Jones, who is as at home in the 1960s as she is in the Old West or the science-fiction world of "X-Men." Jones was born when Jupiter was in Leo, the sign of show business and entertainment, signifying that her desire to entertain people has and will always lead her to good fortune.
