Our personal internal weather is like the weather in the sky — affected by the warm fronts and cold fronts. As Mars squares off against Neptune in the realm of tender emotions, adjusting to rapid temperature changes (especially from loved ones) could start an interior storm. Channel the powerful energy into art or athleticism for best results.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). No need to downplay your assets, nor should you worry about speaking to or not speaking to your virtues. Your many gifts are already speaking for you today, loud and clear.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The simplest way to keep the group together is to all march in the same direction. Once people start peeling off and doing their own thing, unless there's excellent choreography involved, it's going to get complicated.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There's a spark of excitement, and you're not sure yet where it's coming from. Your subconscious mind is ahead of the game, picking up on something good to come.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your favorite is when a friend can tell a really good story. The bonus is when it involves you, and makes everyone laugh and feel bonded by the sweet memories.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). First, you'll help someone with what you know. Next, you'll be really glad for the experiences you've had, the mistakes you've made, and all you've had to overcome to be able to help people.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People know what to expect from you, and you deliver it, plus a little more, a bit different, or some kind of twist. You wouldn't want them to get bored — or worse, so comfortable they forget to lavish you in compliments.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). That superstar is actually just a human like everyone else. You'll see the vulnerabilities and notice the holes in the knowledge, cracks in the facade, etc. And you'll love the person even more for this.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Every master has to put the time in that it takes to be masterful. You're not sure you want to master this thing you've been doing. You just don't want to be terrible at it. You'll have fun and success this weekend.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don't like having to rely on others, but it's actually a good thing. Think about it. You'd rather help someone than be helped, right? Well, the other person feels the same way. Give them the gift of being your helper.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You've something to sell, but you haven't quite figured out how to position it yet. It's like a flag. It's exhausting to stand there waving it around yourself. You need a pole you can run it up and let the wind do the rest.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You admire those who treat the helpless and the vulnerable with great care and tenderness. You are such a person, and you deserve to have people around you who share your big-heartedness.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'd like to be there for friends when they call but they'll call so much today that answering each one would through you off of the main thrust of your day. Stay focused.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 27). You go into this year lighter. Things you used to take seriously now seem fun or trivial. It's like you're running the place. Then "the place" gets bigger and you run that, too. There's a move in August that will have you really interested, challenged and feeling new again. Finances are best in October and next February. Libra and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 38, 16 and 39.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Scorpio and I've been going through some major transformations lately. I've experienced a lot of setbacks whenever I've tried to move forward. Presently, I'm just confused and filled with a lot of doubts about my personal and professional life. For years, I have had no support, but I support others heavily. I need help but I don't know who or where to turn."
The reason you experience setbacks whenever you try to move forward may be because you haven't completed one cycle before you try to begin the next. Scorpio is the sign of the regeneration cycle. Think phoenix rising from the ashes. But here's the catch: The phoenix bursts into flames in an apparent death before reassimilating to fly again. Being afraid to "die" (which in this case means to change and completely let go of the old ways in order to start new) interferes with going to the next step. You must know what you are giving up in order to get what you want. For example, you must give up the habit of measuring your self worth by the degree in which others need you in order to gain the habit of making sure you are supported by others and by your own actions.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: As a car collector, Jay Leno embodies the Taurus phrase "I have," and does it in that very funny Taurus way. Many Taurus people feel drawn to the act of collecting, preserving and sharing the history of the material world, as Leno does with his show "Jay Leno's Garage." Besides being the sign of money and luxury, Taurus is also known for terrific rhythm, which is a must in comedy. Leno has both his sun and Mercury in Taurus.
