The prevalent astrological feature of the United States Election Day is Mercury at a standstill, hovering to change direction. The messenger planet has been retrograde, and this pause represents the screeching halt before a change to direct motion. The communication of voting is about the most direct line to destiny as it gets!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your interpretation of events is absolutely accurate though also limited to but one point of view. Were you to step over even a foot, you would see different possibilities. And so you will, and so you shall.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will travel a short distance to deliver a message that seems, for all intents and purposes, to be necessary to the dailiness of life. And that will be, given your take, an art form.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In any given household, the pressures exerted upon one person may greatly outweigh the pressures on another, and this is in no way predictable based on age, profession or otherwise.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you get close enough to them, toxic people can dust you with their poison. This is why you stay away. You get a sense of what's going nowhere fast.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are like a professional student of life today. You can learn from anything and anyone — your boss, your assistant, a child, a dog, a desk lamp, a piece of gum... you'll absorb whatever lessons there are.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The culture does not exist in a bubble outside of you. You are inside of the bubble, and you are a main contributor to the atmosphere whether or not you say a word or make a move. Your being there is enough.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In movies, representations of life, there are editors who get to say what goes in and what stays out. Your brain also has editors. Today, they will be less strict. The limits of awareness will expand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As a creature, you require comforts. Know what they are, and don't judge — that's the challenge of the day. Seem self-indulgent? The fact that you are even worried about that is a sign of selflessness and self-awareness.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People around you are more tuned in to you than you think. You'll manage your life gracefully, balancing the many elements required to keep you in good spirits.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To be too strict on yourself is a problem for your overall discipline. There's not a creature alive who thrives in bondage. What if you were to do what you naturally want to do for a day?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). With a little expressed appreciation, you'll be able to squeeze more information out of a simple conversation. Even so, keep in mind that what people don't say will be more revealing than what they do.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Today, you'll put your mouth where your money is. There's something you believe in, are wild about, have invested in, and you'll back all of that up by talking about it.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 3). Love is a creation. It has to be built. You do this intentionally this year, ordering your priorities to make relationships first. You'll get a deeper connection to the ones who have always been there. You'll get fantastic news in January and happy developments thereafter. May will bring a particularly satisfying sort of relief. Leo and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 4, 11, 3 and 13.
COSMIC ANXIETY ALERT: For those who are sensitive to tense vibrations, the current cosmic weather may trigger extra nervousness and negative stress. If you feel anxiety creeping in, do not try to muscle through it. Be kind and gentle with yourself instead as you react quickly, helping yourself calm down. Try this exercise:
SENSORY FOCAL POINT: Find a focal point in the moment and through the lens of each of your senses. For instance, if you find yourself freaking out while stuck in traffic, an immediate focal point might be your interior car environment. Bring your attention to the textured feel of the sturdy wheel in your hands. Notice the color gradations around you and through your window, the sounds of humanity around you and the unique taste and smell of your earthly location. Know that this moment is somehow truly unlike any other that ever has been or ever will be. Consider that anxiety is usually occurring in some projected, distant reality of your mind's making. Any one of your senses can provide a way back to the serenity to be found in the present moment.
