It's the last day of the Aquarius solar journey of 2012 and a perfect moment to push for the future of your dreams. The possibilities are limitless. Neptune and the sun come together in an inspiring conjunction to bring about imaginative vision as clear as it is creative. Tonight, send your wishes and intentions to the Capricorn moon.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are things you did because at the time it felt as though it was your only option. You didn't know any better then, and now you do. So forgive yourself, and get on with your brand-new day.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Waste no time in wishing you were more like so-and-so. You're not. You're you — equally wondrous and different from any person in the world. Each path is unique.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It feels as though you've lived many lifetimes. Friends remember funny incidences from your past. You'll likely be caught off guard by the memories, which is what makes them so funny.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Theoretical knowledge is just the beginning of learning. You have to experience a task fully to understand how it works. Make arrangements to get into a job and get your hands dirty.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's true that not everyone can wrap their head around who you are. But embrace your contradictions anyway. They make you more attractive. And cherish the person who delights in your complexity.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll be like the tortoise now, plodding slowly along. Your pace doesn't matter as much as your direction and determination. As long as you don't stop, you'll be victorious.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). However you think things should be, there will be someone who thinks otherwise. A compromise might work, but you'll be happier doing things your way today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you like someone, you feel more creative and open around that person. You also feel like spending money. Tonight, saying "no" and sticking to it will save you a small fortune.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sometimes popularity causes you to seem noncommittal. There are so many faces to greet that you have to keep moving along. Everyone enjoys your company for a short time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The chaos subsides, if only long enough to let you take part in a quiet, gentle pastime. For a while, you'll find inner peace and change your experience of the world.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have passion working in your heart, and you're not afraid to show it. Your conviction is the one factor that will make the difference between getting the job done or not.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll hear news about someone you used to know well. There's no time to waste in being jealous. Get busy creating the kind of success that is the cruelest revenge!
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 18). You'll focus on issues of identity and discover who you are at deeper levels. You have a knack for surrounding yourself with good people. Partnerships bring pleasure and delight. In March, you'll do a new job well and be met with approval. You will economize in April so that you can enjoy luxury later. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 3, 29 and 6.
FRIENDSHIP TIPS FROM THE STARS: Friends are one of the true measures of wealth in this lifetime. When relationships are going well, it's easy to take friendship for granted. Keep your relationship skills sharp and your friendships strong with these tips from the stars.
VIRGO: Easy does it. Most mistakes are not crimes. Your grace in overlooking the flaws of your friends will elevate you in their eyes. And should you blunder in the future, you'll have earned the same mercy.
LIBRA: Hold the stage. Your tendency to be a good listener and a warm audience member is a true talent. Just remember to take over and show up strong when it's time to make things about you. Let someone else pick up the lunch tab, and make them listen to your way-long story about your sister while you're at it — and don't feel guilty! Otherwise, the lopsided energy flow in the relationship will make other people feel uncomfortable.
SCORPIO: Pause, then talk. Good friends see the truth and speak it. Great friends see the truth and think about whether it's best to speak it or practice the fine art of shutting up. Sometimes by not saying all that you know you honor your friend's way of processing life.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Jersey-born John Travolta dropped out of high school to pursue acting and soon landed a prime role in the hit Broadway musical "Grease." Born on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces, Travolta has both energies running strong through his chart. His sun is in musical Aquarius, and natal Mercury and Venus are in intuitive, empathic Pisces — a helpful placement for actors.
