The warrior planet straightens out his course, and the direct motion of the weeks and months to come signifies a rather logical and straightforward path to success. The equation is simple. Put in the work. Exchange the proper sorts of resources and energy to net what you desire. Everything we want has its cost. Find out what it is and pay it.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ask yourself who is good for your life. Enough has happened to show you the honest truth in this regard. The one you are attracted to may be more fun than appropriate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Maybe you can't take it with you, but can you still enjoy and appreciate material wealth without identifying yourself by it? You'll keep your perspective, always remembering that relationships are the true treasures of life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You feel powerful, and you are powerful. Your perspective makes the world seem manageable, and this comes naturally to you. Help others get to the same place.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are days when you blink and things change. Then there are days and decades that go by without much change at all. This is one of those rare times when it's all up to you. To change or not to change, that's the question.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The next small step is a small step (and perhaps even a symbolic one), but it's in an entirely new direction, which makes the repercussions quite large indeed.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will find the hidden meanings and assimilate a deeper sort of knowledge about your topic of interests — mostly because you're curious and you ask good questions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As the sign of partnership, it's rather natural for you to join a friend or a group to do the things you enjoy, but company is not a prerequisite of the experience. Today you'll have just as much fun doing it alone.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You've come up with some interesting ideas. Whether they are good ones or not, well, the jury is still out on that one. But you feel that there's something there, and right now that's enough of a reason to move forward.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Why flirt with disaster? Certain relationships have already proved to be no good for you. And as you steer away from those, you'll steer right into a very valuable new connection.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Relationships will have humble, unremarkable beginnings. You don't have to know what you're doing to start, but you have to start if you're ever going to know what you're doing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Quite a lot will seem important to you today, yet you won't know what to do with the information. Take notes. It's a way of saving the things that matter without having to make a decision yet.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A mess can be very creative, but there are times such as today, in which the mess will hold you back instead. So organize it. Ordering your time and possessions well will help you become very accomplished.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 27). A mystery will clear up, and you'll be able to see exactly what is needed to make your dream real. When you come to the fork in the road in October, the direction you must go will still be rather obvious to you. Love and adventure will happen in November. Family makes you proud and makes you money, too. Scorpio and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 4, 44, 38 and 5.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "What can you tell me about someone I met online whose birthday is April 29, 1979? I haven't seen him in person yet and want to know what to expect."
He is ruled by a Taurus sun and is sensual, luxury-loving and a bit choosy when it comes to his various appetites. Taurus people are steadfast in their convictions and have the wherewithal to stick with relationships and goals through good times and adversity. On the downside, sometimes they don't know when to quit. They can hold on to opinions and behaviors that don't serve them well and can be quite stubborn about it. This guy is also sharp. He has a Gemini moon, indicating mental quickness. Mercury, Venus and Mars are all in Aries. He is energetic, is driven and can be highly competitive.
Now that you have an overview of this dynamic character, do remember the basics of online dating. Go to a public place for your first meeting. Make sure that a friend knows where you are and whom you are meeting. Do not share too much personal information about yourself during the first meeting. And most importantly, absolutely never have a person you don't know pick you up at your home.
