There are days when your mind is a waffle, with little compartments ready to accept sweet bits of information and keep them separate from each other. But today, you're much more spaghetti-like mentally, and the information will mix and mingle accordingly. The Libra moon favors the outcome of this integrated approach to life.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). To provide love, acceptance and security for someone is among the top gifts that a human could give. Give it to yourself to whatever degree you can and your relationships are guaranteed to be all-around better.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You've a talent for connecting with other species. It's as if you can communicate with them through the instincts you share. You'll be a friend to the animals today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you want it to stick, you're going to have to do it again and again and again. "As a single footstep will not make a path on earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind." — Henry David Thoreau
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Yes, sometimes you don't fit in. That doesn't matter. Do you, and do it to the best of your ability. There is no other person on the entire earth who could do you better.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Although you didn't exactly mouth the words, you still made a promise — or at least you feel in your heart somewhat indebted. It was implied in your behavior, and now you'll be asked to make good on that promise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll take a risk and feel the exhilarating high that comes from putting yourself on the line. Whether or not you win is irrelevant. Your life will improve either way. Without risk, there is no reward.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Infatuation is full of expectancy, whereas unconditional love expects nothing. You'll feel flattered by the attention of an interested party, though you're not quite sure how to categorize this attention.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You admire people who keep in touch with others over the span of years, as it shows adaptability. People change so much, becoming someone different in each era. It's a gift, to be loved through the ages.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Everyone is deserving of compassion. Everyone is deserving of care. You'll be a protector for someone who needs it. It's not a good day, however, to be a protector for those who don't need or want it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Thinking of something as "mine" is very distinct from thinking of something as "ours." The shared responsibility makes people act differently and make different choices.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even if you're not obligated to, the day will favor your choice to leave home, get out and talk to people. Casual conversations build relationships and relationships build your future.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your influence on the situation at hand will be more mental rather than practical, and don't underestimate the power in this. To help people think differently is perhaps the most important leadership skill.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 14). You don't care who chooses the path — you've evolved beyond having a big ego. What matters to you is the special experience, the life-enhancing benefit, the good time had by all. Because of this, it will be among your most interesting years, with an adventure for every season. You'll receive an award in January. Capricorn and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 44, 48 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Leo woman born 8/2/51 at 2:07 p.m. in the Bronx, New York. I fell in quickly in love with a Sagittarius man two years ago, but was very hurt when he became physically and emotionally unavailable a few months later. He has re-entered my life and, yes, I still like him very much. Will it work this time?"
What a fun-loving chart you have! Your colorful style shines through — no doubt it is why this Sagittarius was attracted to you immediately. I see self-esteem issues that manifest in the tendency to value yourself based on the attention you get from people you perceive to be a higher status. Break the bad habit of giving your power away in this manner!
Start with this Sagittarius man. Use him as a testing ground and a way to develop emotional muscle tone. When you no longer care whether he likes you or not, you'll know you've gone to the next level in your personal life — the level where you're willing to love yourself and be with people who genuinely want a relationship with you. And there will be many once you move past this guy.
