There's a balance of power that's ripe for the toppling today. The ones in the middle have been afraid to upset certain people up top and not mindful enough of others down below. But it won't go on like this for long. It can't. Nothing would get done. Organizations will get fixed by events that rock them. Don't be afraid of the waves.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe you're tired of the way things are and the situation is causing you pain. Or maybe you're inspired by a glittering example of who you want to be. Either way, you're determined to create something different.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Alas, love is not always, as the classic song suggests, a "many-splendored thing." Although, with the Venus change, you'll get a new perspective on whatever bothers you about it, and things will start to shift.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There's high value in lighthearted relationships. When your spirit feels heavy and the weather inside your head goes gray, people who are easy to be around are like a breeze blowing away the clouds.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There will always be a question to answer, a mess to clean up, a broken thing to fix. However, these do not always fall under your jurisdiction. Involvement is optional. It's about time you practiced the art of doing nothing at all.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In order to see the world how it is, you must be able to lift the lenses you're looking through and take off the filters and rules you've superimposed. Don't worry; you can put your own reality glasses back on after you're done.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Thinking of others is akin to running a street-cleaning vehicle through the avenues of your mind. It brushes your synapses clean and makes all the rest of your thinking flow better.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You want to take part in a scene; you don't want to take it over. This is the message you need to convey subtly, not with talk but with your tone and, of course, your actions. Once they understand you, all will relax.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's a paradox in wanting, as want motivates you while also limiting you. Desire enslaves. Maybe you can't reason your way out of wanting, but you can and should question why.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Unsure where another person stands, you may be tempted to send mixed messages in an attempt to see what resonates. This takes too long. Risk rejection. Ask a direct question. Dispense with the cloudy and opt for the clear.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Symmetry is satisfying not just in aesthetics but in all things. Put money in; get the same value out. Talk as much as you listen, etc. Today's symmetrical features may not be immediately detectable. Wait for it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To moralize things like food or spending opens a whole bag of complicated psychology you don't need right now. No one is "bad" for eating a cookie or "good" for saving a buck. Explore new mindsets and styles of self-talk.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Maybe there are no magic bullets or miracle lifehacks, but looking for them and trying new things will be a great deal of fun anyway, especially when your expectations are realistic.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 20). The words you cherished and wanted to believe will finally be proven and shown this year. You will trade places with someone for a while to learn about a business or culture. A fun diversion becomes a serious consideration for a lifestyle choice. You'll change your appearance to reflect a surge of confidence. Libra and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 24, 33, 28 and 7.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Love returned in equal measure is among the greatest joys of life. TAURUS: You like playing the games of romance to some extent, but it's time to request a timeout and get real about the rules. GEMINI: Joking around will reveal the true character of a person and of a relationship. CANCER: If you think that it's no big deal that the sound of a certain voice gives you butterflies, think again. It's rarer than a total solar eclipse. LEO: The hardest thing about dating is taking care of other people's feelings. It's not your responsibility, but it's nice that you try. VIRGO: Liking all of the same things isn't necessary, but sharing a sensibility in music and entertainment certainly bodes well for being on the same intellectual wavelength. LIBRA: You're not asking too much; you're just asking the wrong person. SCORPIO: Don't waste time searching for the right words, as they'll be born of the moment. Or not. Silence is good, too. SAGITTARIUS: You forget who you are around some people. That's OK. Who you are is always changing. CAPRICORN: You should be able to expect the sweetness of supportive words from your loved ones. Your soul thirsts for it. AQUARIUS: Suddenly, all the songs are about one person. PISCES: Love without problems of pride is beautiful, simple and complete.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Cold nights make the steam that rises from a fire and water sign couple all the more visible. In the case of this weekend, it's Scorpio and Sagittarius who get the theatrical spotlight and requisite special effects, though they'll be oblivious to the attention of anyone but each other. The rest of the world disappears as they focus on and change one another with the intensity of an unshakeable attraction.
