What if everything you've accepted about yourself is wrong? What if your DNA matters much less to your health and physicality than you think? The Aquarius moon favors open-mindedness. Believe something new about yourself -- for instance, that you are unstoppable -- and you will likely prove it true by day's end.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The way you put yourself together is a gift to others. Today, the special care you take assembling an outfit pays off. People will feel happy to look at you and proud to be seen with you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As usual, there are practical realities to process, some of them unpleasant, but nothing you haven't seen before. You'll be in charge, and you'll tell the truth in a way that goes down easily for others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The way you deal with your friends is commendable. You won't speak ill of anyone even though some are eager to find a scapegoat or to use other people's shortcomings as a hot topic. Others learn from you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It may feel as though the stress that a higher up, parent, teacher, authority figure or client puts on you is cramping your style. But this restriction will force you to do your best work.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll be surrounded by interesting characters, and the more you study them the more fascinating they get. You seem to know just the question to ask that will open up the whole life story.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be in the mood to experience a spontaneous adventure. You're a free spirit. As long as all prior commitments are handled, nothing and no one will stop you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your subconscious speaks to you in the form of curiosity. You'll feel compelled to say hello to someone or to walk through a certain door. You would be wise to honor this instinct.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For you, the going is as important as the arriving: The means by which you reach your goal are as important as the goal itself. This kind of high-mindedness will attract to your work a new and potentially powerful player.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It's never too late to take up a new interest. Your dedication to your existing obligations and habits has served you well, but a little spice wouldn't hurt. Moreover, there's growth in discomfort.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're active, but you're not a busybody. Your motions are many, but they come from a place of stillness and quiet. You have a larger purpose in mind, and your actions will push you to that end.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You come across like a brave conqueror. The invisible parade behind you is comprised of people waving bright banners and singing your favorite songs. They are celebrating you, the mighty and triumphant hero.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A previously healthy relationship between you and a beloved family member has for some reason suffered lately. A lighthearted greeting might gently usher you both toward a new closeness.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 29). You find new inspiration. Also, you'll be a muse to others. You'll work on yourself to get ready for a fun event in August. Because you're prepared, you'll have a blast. October brings an enriching relationship. You'll get better and better at thinking things through. One of your brilliant strategies will pay off in November. Gemini and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 20, 44, 31 and 19.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My ex, a Pisces, was so wishy-washy that he could never make up his mind about anything -- including how he felt about me! He could never seem to get out of neutral. Is that typical of Pisces?"

Well, let me put it to you this way: The Tarot card that is said to represent Neptune -- the planet that rules Pisces -- is The Hanged Man. That's not as bad as it sounds, but it's still challenging. On the one hand, The Hanged Man symbolizes being hung up and going nowhere fast. The person who draws this card is stuck in limbo and can't seem to move forward -- he's just hanging out, same as it ever was. This, sad to say, is not an uncommon state of being for those under the influence of Neptune. They have a tendency to drift whatever way the wind's blowing. What they really need is an anchor. On the other hand, both Neptune and The Hanged Man have a very important spiritual lesson to impart: the concept of "surrender." Start with those expectations of yours. Give them up, as they are causing you to paddle against the tide. It's better to throw up your hands and go with the flow of things.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates has been busy on both the big and small screens. She recently played the offbeat tutor Miss Sue in "The Blind Side," and her characterization of dog-loving CEO Jo Bennett in "The Office" has won her some new fans. Bates was born under a highly empathetic Pisces moon and is capable of dissolving into characters that are very different from herself.
