Air-Sign Trines

The easy-breezy Gemini sun and the Aquarius moon form an auspicious omen from the beginning -- a lucky trine, followed by another harmonious arrangement involving Mars a few hours later. Even though the Mercury retrograde is still going strong, today brings some of the best hours of the week to connect and share with loved ones.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maintenance is the theme. It's about the nails and the hair, the lawn and the garden. Simple acts of renewal and care demonstrate optimism and can be felt at a soul level.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's a reason that the real estate with the good views goes for so much more than the windowless space. A wide horizon inspires wide thinking. Go where the views are expansive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). At this point, you just want to finish what you started. Knowing that you can do it on your own is huge right now. Even if no one else knows but you, this is a milestone, for sure.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may lose something, but you haven't lost everything. If you don't believe it, just count your possessions. Even the most tenacious will get tired after number 200 or so.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A healthy approach to problem solving will include taking the pressure off of yourself and making an effort to gain a perspective outside of your usual realm of existence.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are few endeavors more destined for disappointment than the quest for perfection. However, if you're looking for excellence, you are very likely to find it today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Failures are teachers. Successes are also teachers. You'll learn faster from the teacher of failure, though, and that's why the tuition is set much higher at the school of failure.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The friend who helps you break through a preconceived notion and see the world with fresh, unprejudiced eyes is an invaluable asset to your life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). On every level, emotional, physical, intellectual and beyond, you have the power to heal yourself. Relax and trust the many kinds of intelligence you possess.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Could it be that you are the keeper of another person's dream? If that is the case, you'll do your best to make it come true, as colorful and large as you can make it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're so curious that you'll never get bored or be boring. Furthermore, you'll dispel a few of your fears by looking deeper into them until you come to an understanding.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll wake up thinking about the difference you want to make in the world. However serious you are about your mission, you still approach it with a light heart. Wherever you walk, it will be sunnier for the warmth of your smile.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 7). Ecstatic experiences will color your world this year. Perhaps you didn't think you could love this much! July shows you trading up. You'll enjoy being silly with someone in August -- adventures will ensue. A commitment in September leads to financial improvements and greater freedom in the future. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 48, 39 and 11.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Imagine an environment in which a pendulum could swing one way and then hover there indefinitely instead of swinging back the other way. Happy people could enjoy themselves without ever having to experience suffering. Spring would never turn into a hot summer, nor would it come from a bitter winter. Every action wouldn't have a consequence or an equal and opposite reaction, or even an effect. Would you really want to live in such a static world?

This week's cosmic weather emphasizes the nature of our current home, a universe that demands balance. One retrograde ends, and another begins the next day. Mercury's journey backward through Gemini stations for direct movement on June 11, restoring the usual flow of daily life, commerce and communication. Then on June 12, Neptune, ruler of dreams and imaginings, goes retrograde in Pisces. While practical matters resume forward movement, spiritual matters may seem oddly stuck. Just remember that to question your role in the universe is to be human. Though you can't see how you fit in, just "do you" anyway and trust the intelligence of the universal balancing act.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: "Arrested Development's" Michael Cera was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in Gemini, indicating a quick wit, conversational ease and a relentless drive to share ideas. His moon and Mars in soulful Pisces lends outstanding levels of empathy and artistic drive. Look for Cera and fellow comedy greats in the television series "Childrens Hospital."
