Perk up your ears and you'll hear people giving the advice they need to hear, condemning people who have similar shortcomings to their own, and being generally duplicitous. Forgive! And on the last day of the Gemini solar journey in the year 2019, how can we be expected to represent only one thing? We are all multifaceted.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The key to pleasure is brevity. Fast conversations, quick visits, presentations that wow and delight despite (or more likely, because of) their short runtime.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To be broadminded is to accept that your beliefs and opinions represent but one point of view. Big brains make room for multiple theories, as there are many things that could be true at once.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Healing is miraculous — a sweet relief — and yet one that goes so often uncelebrated because having things in working order seems like it should be the norm. To appreciate whatever stage you're in is to welcome greater vitality.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People who feel the situation has gotten out of their control will lash out. You can reel it back in with a question, as long as you avoid one that starts with "why?" Ask a "how" question instead such as, "How can we solve it?"
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Restlessness isn't always best addressed by indulging your wanderlust. If you let distraction win, or keep running to the next thing, you won't get anything done. It's time to buckle in and finish what you started.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Relationships have costs, just like other things. The time you spend together, the attention you give, the ways you acknowledge one another — these are all outlays of effort. Some people are more expensive than others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll get bored quickly, not because you're "boring" but because you feel that you are, in some way, trapped with a problem that's too easy or familiar to be interesting to you. Don't stay there. Free yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Verify your sources and don't talk about anything of which you don't have firsthand knowledge. If you can steer clear of miscommunication and stick with the original route you mapped out, you'll be ahead in the race.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may understand your position, resources and the conditions around you, but until you also know what the competition is bringing to this game, you don't have enough information. Find out what you're up against.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be big opportunities around you today. You can tell who the important people are. They don't talk much about themselves; they don't have to. You hardly ever hear them say, "I," as they act on behalf of many.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don't want to be universally attractive. Universal attraction brings all sorts of trouble and sorting with it. You want to be attractive to the small margin of people you can serve the best. Aim your offerings there.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You've no problem expressing yourself now. Circumstances have culminated to give urgency to the emotions inside you. It's actually easier for you to do the surprising thing than to do the expected thing.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 20). What starts as a mere curiosity becomes a full-blown mission. The months to come show you collecting clues, skills and team members. September brings a trophy. Domestic changes will ultimately support and inspire you as you daringly adapt to trends and welcome influences. An investment pays in November. Virgo and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 30, 19, 33 and 5.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My husband says I'm crabby and should try to be more positive. But I am bothered by at least a hundred things a day. For instance, yesterday I bought a book and it turns out that the author included blank pages for me to write about my experiences with the material. Isn't this really because the author ran out of things to write about and decided to pad the book with blank pages? If I wanted to write my own book, I would. I don't need the author to tell me where to write. I already have access to all the blank paper I'll ever need, thank you very much. Anyway, I don't feel like being more positive. Should I get a new husband instead? — Snarky Scorpio."
Each person has a positivity set point. It would be unnatural, even false, for you, honest Scorpio, to deviate very far from yours all at once. Anyone asking you to do so is missing the benefit of your highly original, insightful views. However, if you are bringing your husband down, he has every right to request a change of tone. Perhaps you should keep track of your amusing complaints on some of that blank paper.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Among Nicole Kidman's current projects is the new HBO television series "The Undoing," of which she is the star and also an executive producer. Kidman is a versatile Gemini as comfortable playing the mother of Aquaman as she is playing a ghost, showgirl or housewife. Her natal moon is in worldly, exploratory Sagittarius, signaling a fascination with different cultures, time periods and ways of life.
