Part of being confident is knowing that you are protected if things don't go the way you anticipate or desire. The Saturn change prompts a spirit of readiness. Keep in mind that there are many means of protection that do not require strength. Distance is a defense. So is friendliness. So is cuteness. Think outside the box on the matter.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's all temporary — the mood, the circumstance, the things you want out of this... and yet, it matters. You'll feel as though you're defining yourself with the action you take.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll be looking for ways to do more and need less and you'll find them. There's magic in this pursuit. It will also be quite addicting, especially in the case of doing things for others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've often had the impression that the game is rigged. Today that suspicion comes sneaking around again, although this time it seems to be rigged in your favor... so is that going to be a problem?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Whether it's emotional or actual baggage, you'll be less effective trying to dead lift it on your own. You can handle much more weight with a little strategy. Can it be leveraged? Can it be rolled?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). An ordeal can be an adventure and an adventure can be an ordeal, and today they'll be one and the same, depending on how you look at this. It's easier to approach it brightly when there's someone to impress.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Trial and error is the only way to learn this complex thing you've taken on. Sure, the theoretical knowledge will help, but it can only take you so far. You'll advance through your mistakes. Mastery will be eventual and inevitable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're great at slipping into the mindset that will serve the moment best. This is a talent in and of itself — a sign of emotional genius really — and you'll be able to trade on it for some nice dividends today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's not important that they know everything you mean. In fact, it's better that they don't. As people fill in the blanks with their own story, they connect with you. Mysteries are opportunities. Voids are invitations.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). What stands alone? Nothing and no one. Life here is about groups. Organisms, tribes, cultures... from bacteria to trees to animals and people, it's all working together. As much as you'd like that not to be true today, it still is.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's not one bad thing on your to-do list today. You could potentially take pleasure in every single activity. The thing is, there are so many of them, and most of them rather pressing. You can do this!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your day-to-day is slowly morphing into a different pattern. Your style is changing, too. But your values will stay the same. Like a developing child, you will fulfill the potential of what you always were.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Kindness and self-respect are at the center of your decision to step up and own your actions when they're great and when they're not. We're all just learning and in need of both encouragement and correction.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 19). In the next 10 weeks, luck, attitude and ability intersect in the perfect convergence to bring you money. Your excitement over an idea will be the defining factor — your idea of another person, or of the future, or of humanity in general. What/whom you take care of will reward you enormously in the spring. Aquarius and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 5, 22, 28 and 31.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "Well, it's been a mighty fine solar return for me. I got some glimpses of something in the future, and now I'm making a goal of becoming more intuitive with this trip around the sun. What psychic stuff do you suggest for Sagittarius?"
It's not just the idea of travel that stimulates the Sagittarius psychic sense. To go get proof that strange lands exist... to lay hands on the rocks, water and trees that are there... to see what's inside the buildings and eat what's on the plates... it's what lights the Sagittarian spirit. For this reason, Sagittarius people tend toward the gift of psychometry. Holding an object in their hands is a way of channeling information about that object, the people who owned it and other relevant information. Sagittarians who want to further develop this talent need only sit quietly, holding an object and express the images that come to mind. These images don't have to make sense, and often wont, but go with whatever thought pops up while in contact with the energetic field of the object. Make note of the mood, emotions, temperature, sounds and accompanying visuals and associations. This exercise is best done completely blind, meaning with objects the Sagittarius knows absolutely nothing about. Sagittarius might be amazed at how many associations resonate with meaning for the person who owns the object.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: "Mindfreak" magician Criss Angel has been called a visionary of modern magic and a dominant force in the world of illusion. His collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, "Believe," is a top Vegas attraction. The magician was born when the sun and communicative Mercury were in passionate Sagittarius and Venus (the love planet) and Neptune (the imagination planet) were in the mysterious station of Scorpio.
