Some environments make it easier for you to form the habits you want. You're likely to encounter such sweet circumstances smack between the solar change to Cancer and the new moon. Look for the small action that could be the seed of something great. Here's the key: It has to be easy to repeat (and repeat and repeat and repeat).
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The examples and ideas that come to mind are the most available ones to your brain, not necessarily the best or most accurate ones. For the best results, question and test everything.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Perhaps there is more affecting the outcome than you can currently imagine. For this reason, try not to get too attached to a particular vision of the end result. Once you free yourself from expectation, you'll be able to handle and enjoy what comes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To be very literal in your interpretation of what is directed to you is to miss the intention of almost everything. People rarely say what they mean, after all. Feel the tone.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Attraction is the glue of the universe. Desire brings things into being. If you feel needy, if you are left wanting, if you are a slave to your cravings, find the creative force in this and let it power you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes we don't want what's good for us. The more we want something, the less wise we become. Back off. Detach. Don't ask, "Will I?" before you ask, "Should I?"
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you learn from every scenario, the more scenarios you live, the more you'll learn. So when the question of whether to go or stay arises, if your aim is to be wiser, the answer is usually to go.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you value sincerity, you also see the value in its opposite, which today amounts to someone's rather creative way of assembling the given information in order to accomplish the greater good. Call it diplomacy.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You admire those who are better prepared, but don't let that stop you from jumping in and doing your best with whatever you have and wherever you are in the learning process.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Conversations have a way of getting off-track as people keep talking to try and make a connection that may never come. Instead, keep it brief, say what you need to say, and then leave and let it sink in.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Tremendous rationality can have a way of dulling your senses. This has been a theme for you lately and the cosmic challenge really comes to a peak today. Use your feelings; choose your heart.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This is no time to start falling in line. You could save the day by marching to your own drum. Give yourself the leeway to mess around, try things on and poke your nose into the parts of it that don't seem meant for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To rebel is a natural urge. Without it there's no progress. Remember this when — for reasons you can't explain — you want to overturn the authority (even if said authority is only a voice in your own head).
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 22). Peace comes with this solar return. You will trust in the benevolence of the universe, and your trust will be well-placed. Next month brings a creative wave. A political change (perhaps along the lines of neighborhood or family politics) will favor you in September. You'll make money in August and March. Scorpio and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 28, 50, 11 and 34.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I feel like I'm on the outside and like no one is respecting me. I send emails to people and it takes them forever to email me back. I make requests and they are ignored. I try to get help from clerks in stores and they walk right by me. I feel unimportant. The worst part is that I'm actually quite an accomplished person, both professionally and personally — on paper that is. But in real life I can't feel any of the successes I have. No matter what I do in life it still feels like I'm nothing."
Regardless of your astrological sign, I can tell you that it is not uncommon for individuals, myself included, to experience a crisis of spirit from time to time. If these feelings of worthlessness go on for long stretches, however, talk with a doctor or counselor, or seek other trusted guidance. When I go through such states, it helps me to draw on the energy of both Capricorn, which deals with your public standing and issues of respect, and Pisces, the sign of spirit.
