Cosmic Pre-Game Speech

The laser focus of the Scorpio moon rules the morning, and there's an auspicious lunar trine to Venus, as well, making the a.m. hours the perfect time to get clear on what you'd like to bring into your world during tomorrow's Sagittarius full moon. This is like the locker room speech before the big game or the backstage huddle before show time.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Reality is what it is, not what you think it must be. Reminding yourself of this will help you to be patient with yourself and the world around you. From this relaxed place, you'll make a brilliant move.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your success formula is rather straightforward these days. Get organized and keep your priorities straight, and as a result, you'll be personally and professionally productive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Will the good you do today be forgotten tomorrow? If it is, this won't sway you from your course. After all, you do good for its own sake. Your life is more meaningful when you abide by what you know is right.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll make a casual presentation. This is getting you ready for something bigger. You may feel like you're awkwardly floundering through it, but this is a blessing. A stumble can prevent a fall.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your playfulness opens social horizons. That said, try to stay out of the spotlight. Not needing to be the center of attention shows confidence. (But you may accidentally get the most attention anyway.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You see clearly how everyone is just looking for the way -- for the way in love, in vices, in religion, in work... You have compassion for all. You refuse to pass judgment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). This is where you prove that you're tenacious. If you fail to sell an idea today, you'll succeed in gaining more information to help you sell it later. Make notes after the interaction so you can learn from what happened.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People need closure. It might not even be your responsibility to give it to them, but if you can do it, you will. You understand the value in a feeling of completion.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It's been said that all fires start small. There's one growing inside you today that begins as a warm ember. You'll fan it with the kindling of your mind and the passion of your heart.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Everyone else could be wrong about what's right for you. You're the only one who really knows. You may listen to their advice and even try it out, but ultimately your own decisions are the ones you'll stand behind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don't have to know everything about art to know what you like. The same goes for music, food and people. You'll sample many delights and land on a few favorites.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may realize that you are developing certain expectations of a relationship. This is a good time to check them against reality to make sure you're wanting something that's reasonable.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 1). The work you'll do over the next 10 weeks will lead to more money and travel, too. Challenges will be solved by drawing on diverse ideas or knowledge. Friends with a background very different from yours will be especially helpful to your life. August features a lovely mystery. September has you contemplating a major change. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 15, 3, 33 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: Where is the planet Uranus now, and what does that mean?

If you ever find that you have 42 or so Earth years to burn, here's an interesting way to spend them. Go to the North Pole of Uranus, and watch the sun rise and dance around in the sky for 42 years. When the sun finally sets, unless you brought a long-lasting flashlight, you may as well leave the planet, because you're in for 42 Earth years of darkness before the next Uranus sunrise.

Uranus spends about seven years transiting each sign of the zodiac, and so its effect is considered more generational than personal. In astrology, Uranus is the planet of revolution. It is a freedom cry and a rock 'n' roll rebellion. It's the planet of surprise and uproar and innovation. It's also the planet that rules science and technology. Uranus entered Aries on March 11, 2011, and will transit this part of the sky until May 15, 2018. It's a highly energetic, if not radical placement for the already rowdy planetary influence, indicating rapid changes and breakthroughs for mankind. Advances from medicine to social media to weaponry will continue to shape the new decade in surprising ways.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Maybe it's his authoritative voice, or maybe it's the glow of kindness and goodness that radiates from his presence, but for some reason, Morgan Freeman usually gets cast in the godly role. Born when the sun was in versatile Gemini and the moon was in spiritual Pisces, Freeman has a varied natal chart in which all elements are well represented. Look for him the upcoming comedy "Ted 2."
