Venus Direct Directives

By Holiday Mathis

When love changes her tune, it sometimes takes a minute for dancers on the floor to figure out what to do with the new rhythm. The Venus change of direction is a time to listen and feel love's beat. Don't force anything or try to explain what's happening in the heart. Relax, let the mood wash over you and absorb the feeling of the moment.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because of the interconnectedness of body, mind and soul, the fitness of one area will be communicated through the other two. For vibrant benefits, breathe energy into your weaker modality.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will either commit completely to the task or will pretend that you are completely committed to the task, recognizing how important it is to everyone on the team that you appear unified and "all in."

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It doesn't matter if it's a boss, loved one or complete stranger — when someone asks you to do something, you naturally default to "yes." This agreeableness will be the start of an adventure.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Just like crunches build stomach muscles, emotional stability can be exercised and built, giving you a core of strength that is even more attractive than a six-pack of abs.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've known both introversion and extroversion and are currently an "ambivert," as some situations make you feel outgoing and others make you feel closed up.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What the others want may not be desirable, possible or convenient to you, but you'll hear them out anyway. This act of kindness and respect has repercussions of healing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is little in life more valuable than the unconditional support of a true friend. You'll experience the pure love of an exchange that is without motive or expectation of reciprocity.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In uncertain circumstances, it is only human to rely on assumptions. Be superhuman instead. Let go of what you know and reserve judgment as you try to absorb the truth in front of you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). For most people, if they know how to start, then they'll dive right in. Not knowing where to start leads to procrastination. You'll have the opportunity and privilege of leading the way.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Too many choices can be overwhelming, not enough is boring. You'll find your own sweet spot of options, but don't assume it's the same for all. Some people can handle three, others 23.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Some thought patterns are like riptides. It's easy to get carried away and fighting them head-on can be futile. Relax and be carried. Wait for the break — it's coming — and then you can swim to the shore.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This is the time to relax your expectations and accept that your best is always relative to the moment. You can push yourself, but be kind about it. There is no need to punish yourself, ever.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 25). Spiritual investigation and development will lead you to make some very practical improvements. In the next 10 weeks, your interests shift and friendship circle widens. The influence of new people will lead to lifestyle upgrades. The start of 2021 has a romantic feel. Big projects bring big money. Pisces and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 22, 17 and 30.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "It was like a fairytale when my Aries boyfriend and I (Pisces) finally came together after two years of waiting for each other. Then, I stood by him during some very stressful situations, and then he just walked away. I loved him dearly and believed he felt the same and that we would be together for life. My heart is broken, but I am trying to move on."

When I read "fairytale", I think Neptune, the planet of romantic enchantment. Love on Neptune is divine, but in an emotionally engrossing kind of way. Think: the difference between a classic love story and the maturity-engendering travails and triumphs of a romantic comedy. The rub is identifying when the relationship has grown lopsided, (for either of you) and then working to correct it. It is necessary to mature and thrive as a couple. You thought emotional loyalty, standing by your guy's side, cemented your relationship. Your Aries just wasn't that guy. Since Aries men sometimes have difficulty expressing their feelings, he didn't tell you that he was changing. Pisces, love will come again. And when it does, I bet you'll take better care of you by being real about what you need in a partnership.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: It has been announced that "The Office" creator Ricky Gervais is a main writer of a new animated comedy, "Flanimals." The comedy king is a typical Cancer; moonchildren are sensitive souls who develop their comedic sense out of a need to protect themselves against harsh realities. Like a crab whose best defense is a hard shell, Cancer comedians deflect harm by turning it into humor.
