If you boiled your tone down to its essence — the primal drumbeat and the tribal chant of it — what's the feeling there? Moods come and go, but most people have a rather consistent set point their outlook hovers around, and it's a good thing to know about yourself. A Mars and Neptune trine will bring some self-awareness and harmony on the subject.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Try to see the neutrality in things this week. Nothing is worse or better than it is, except when you choose to think of it that way. Your thoughts will make it so.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're not always looking for a robust learning experience. You just want to know how to make it work. You'll appreciate those who can get to the point and show you how to fix it without too much backstory.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It feels like you started this journey ages ago, but you're not in the final stretch yet. You're not even halfway there! Be consistent with your efforts and march on.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You wanted to know, but you were afraid to ask. Your chance comes today. You can speak candidly and others will not be offended, because your question holds within it the innocence of a child.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A school of thought is like a brick-and-mortar school in that the one you attend will change everything — the people you know, the activities you become involved in, even where and how you live.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The teacher will not recruit a class; instead the students will seek a teacher. For this reason, don't wait around for the opportunity to learn. Decide what you want to know, and go find someone who knows it already.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). To remain true to your core won't be a rigid stance but a flexible one. Great strength sways with the wind and weather like the ancient trees do, reaching roots ever downward as they grow.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The challenge calls for a vision into the far-off future. If you can't get a good idea of what's to come, you can at least have faith that it's something good. It's important that you don't sell your future for a quick fix today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don't worry about the money so much. Creativity will take over where the money leaves off. In this and other ways the ends will find their own magical way of meeting.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To create is to feel vitality flowing through you, to be animated by the force of life. The nature of the material world is to have an ending, but the nature of creation is to live on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To ask "What's in it for me?" isn't selfish today; it's practical. And if you don't negotiate it, who will? It would be irresponsible to depend on others to be your No. 1 advocate when you're perfectly suited for the job.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even though people yearn for excitement, they also crave predictability. There's a balance to be struck here, and you'll succeed in bringing a little of both to a relationship.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 26). The next 10 weeks will build up your confidence. September is your chance at a prize you've wanted since you were a child. New trends begin in November. You'll improve according to whom you have around you. The help you gave long ago will boomerang back in the form of excellent luck at the close of 2017. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 50, 33, 2 and 28.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "In a lineup of men, count on me to choose the wrong one. He might look good, sound good and smell good, but if I choose him, he'll turn out to be a loser. I'm tired of love. The roller coaster is making me feel sick. Will a 35-year-old Scorpio ever find the man of her dreams?"
Indeed, powerful Scorpio, you already have! You've been dreaming about losers and you keep finding them. (Anyway, a lineup is the last place you should look for a guy!) Your negative projection keeps creating the same scenario. My advice is to get out of the love game for a while. A year off is ideal. Interrupt your habit of going into dating situations with your hormones instead of your head. Prove to yourself that romance doesn't make your world go around. You need the time and space to create a solid relationship with yourself. Your attraction to losers comes from a deeply rooted belief that you're undeserving of love. Prove that belief wrong by taking care of yourself on all levels, including emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually. When the year is over you'll attract a man who is capable of following the precedent.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: She has a world-class voice and chart-topping hits, but that's the the least of what courageous Ariana Grande has to offer her fans these days. The entertainer is fighting terrorism with love, vowing to return to the scene of tragedy to raise aid for the victims. "We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win," said the singer. Her natal Venus in Taurus is tenacity, grit, grace and beauty all rolled up together.
