Pluto has recently changed direction, Mars is wearing a new attitude, and the sun is pulling across the sky from Jupiter and Uranus. There will be no settling in. Everything is still changing. The best we can do is turn up our awareness. Instead of blindly running around, slow down, be observant and try to gracefully find your place in the grand ballet.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Consider taking a trip. Though your family treats you as a commoner, there are places in the world in which you would be received as a highly honored guest. Both kinds of reception are good for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Family and friends have a different recollection of your shared history. The discrepancies are to be expected and in no way should discount your own experience. Your memory serves you well, and theirs serves them, too.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are moving at a highly productive pace. You have to work when you don't want to. You want to work when you don't have to. As for sleep -- it will overcome you eventually, but not without a fight.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are a connoisseur. You know what you would like to see. When a piece of art falls short of your expectations, it may nonetheless be a great gift. This will be a jumping-off place for your creativity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will be easy for you to get worked up into a concentrated state of mind. So be sure to focus yourself well. Make sure you're getting excited instead of nervous, enthused instead of upset.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your goal is simple -- to keep everything going in a positive direction. The people around you are depending on you now. There are three clear next steps. You have the energy, so start climbing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What do you do for fun? Well, do that more today. A lack of fun will be the start of a negative trend. Keep your immune system going strong. Laugh, love and be light of heart.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do some reflecting -- physically. Involve a mirror. The problem is not your face, but the mirror will help you face the problem. Look deeply into your own eyes -- search for answers.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be activity in the realm of personal relationships. You could fall back in love with someone you fell for before. The chemistry won't be the same. You both have changed, but the new combo will be just as potent.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though you're not always confident that you can do a job, to an outsider, you seem to have all the answers. You know more than you think. But the key thing you know is when to ask more questions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It is rumored that dueling is legal in Paraguay as long as both participants are registered blood donors. There are unspoken rules of battle in your own family that are just as absurd as this.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This is one of those times when saying less will convey more information. People will remember one-sentence "sound bites" better than they would anything long and involved.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 15). Your adventurous style will attract admirers. In October, you'll see the potential to make money and quickly figure out how. Certain rules will be changed or bent for you. A stable, responsible person helps you turn a domestic dream into reality. You'll be awarded in January. Family additions come in June. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 2, 19, 21 and 14.
SCHOOLDAYS! THE GEMINI STUDENT: The phrase commonly associated with Gemini is "I think," which is why the sign of the twins is perfectly suited for the intellectual challenges of school. Ruled by Mercury, the Gemini student quickly absorbs information on many levels at once. This is one of the most communicative signs, and Gemini has no problem raising a hand to answer or ask questions. Gemini often breaks the ice for other students, too, leading discussions and sharing observations. Because this sign is so quick, it is important that the class is challenging enough. If not, Gemini will be chatty and mischievous, creating distractions or trouble. THE CANCER STUDENT: Cancer feels his or her way through a classroom. The subject matters less to Cancer than the degree to which students collectively create an atmosphere that is conducive to learning. The moonchild can really read and match the mood of a classroom, which is why the particular school, teacher and peer group Cancer is involved with will make a huge difference for this sensitive sign. Cancer excels in a group of students who provide positive stimulation and a little competition, too. Classes in the arts give Cancer a place to work out strong emotions.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Reality television personality Heidi Montag was already gorgeous when she famously underwent 10 plastic surgeries in one day -- extreme even for a Virgo perfectionist! Sometimes Virgos can be too analytical for their own good. Her love planet Venus is in Scorpio, a sign associated with passion, intensity and also with surgery. Mars in Capricorn indicates ambition and business savvy.
