Planetary Shoulder Shrug

We only see what we look at, and even then we still don't really see the thing outside of where it is in relation to us. One point of view per eyeball, that's all we get. The difficult arrangement of Jupiter and Pluto today suggests we accept the limitations of this, reserving the right to be absolutely wrong and often admitting, "I don't really know."

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Fun? You're game! The world seems to sense this about you and will offer opportunities to practice the spectrum of mirth — grinning, laughing, hooting, hollering and dancing ... it's all in the offering.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your work will only be as good as you can make it right now. So don't worry about how it measures up. That part is out of your hands. Just do your work until you come to the end of your fear and inhibitions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll attract people who want to help you, align with you or simply keep your company on this part of the journey. You can accomplish the same without these potential partners, but it won't be nearly as easy or fun.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though your idea may start the action today, what happens because of this isn't really about you. There are niches to be filled, and as people fall into position, lives will change.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). For whatever reason, it may be the wrong time to let the others know what you really think — at least not everything. It's the right time, however, to start moving instinctively and privately toward your ideas.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are strong intuitive currents running through you today, and what's even better is that you're inclined to believe them. You feel it when you feel it, and when you don't, there's nothing anyone else can do about it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you may never have to weather the extreme elements, you want a warm, durable coat that can handle such a remote possibility. This coat-shopping metaphor will apply to some part of your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Today, your wit is what a mandolin is to a butter knife: You're sharper and more precise, and the result is artfully impressive. Take precautions to avoid hurting someone accidentally.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you speak highly of what you do, the next thing that will happen is that people will want you to do it for them. Gauge your speech based on this. If it's not your desire to service others at this time, hold your tongue.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you keep solving a problem in the same way, does that really count as a solution? Maybe there something you could do to handle this once and for all. Ask around.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Remember when you fretted for nothing? Let that discourage you from today's worries, or at least consider taking a break for the day — you can always resume worrying in the future.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you followed the directions on your shampoo bottle too literally, you would be rinsing and repeating until the bottle ran out. Today, you'll approach every endeavor with common sense first. You'll read directions as a last resort.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 30). Like a bird pecking its way out of an egg, you're emerging into a wider world this year. There's much to learn over the next three months, and a wise guide will show up to help. A financial drain will be sealed and healed in April. In June, you'll strike emotional gold. August brings a wonderful love story. Leo and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 2, 24, 44 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I am a woman born without any planets in my house of love and marriage. I am 30 years old and getting quite discouraged by my chances of marrying. I am told that without planets in that house, I won't ever marry. Is that true? I recently met a woman who is 58 and also doesn't have any planets in the house of marriage and partnership, and she has never married and has totally given up hope. Is this what I have to look forward to?"

Heavens, no! I like to think that when there are no planets in certain house, it means that you get to create that area of your life completely, like an artist creates on a blank canvas. It can be difficult, as you've got nothing to build from, but you also have no limitations. You are completely free to imagine your perfect relationship and start making it happen.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: From humble means to superstardom, Celine Dion shows the warrior spirit of her sign through powerful music. Her sun, moon and Saturn are in Aries, lending a ferocious drive to be the very best. Mercury and Venus in soulful Pisces reveal a need to communicate emotion and move people spiritually. Her lucky planet, Jupiter, is in Leo, the sign of children and also of the entertainment business.
