The old world had more gatekeepers and quality-control managers. The new world can't afford them and doesn't need them. As a result, each individual is charged with taking control, keeping track and making decisions based on personal values and taste. The Cancer moon encourages everyone along this path, emphasizing the role of intuition.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't need a reason to reach out to another person. You're a social creature. It's in your DNA to connect. Also, the reason always presents itself down the line.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Bending the rules will be fun for you, but not as fun as breaking them. Your brief stint as an outlaw will make you more appreciative of the structures you adhere to on a daily basis.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you want a change to happen in your life, you have to be willing to make a change in yourself. Today your inner power will surge. You're ready to do what it takes.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll feel like you're just one person competing in a crowded market of similar people. But no one is you. When you're doing what only you can do, you will have no competition.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your definition of success has changed throughout the years. Take a moment to stop and reassess. Imagine yourself winning. What does that look like to you?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don't underestimate your talents, but don't highlight them, either. You don't need to. People flock to you when you stop trying to sell what you do and start sharing who you are instead.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What was true yesterday doesn't apply today. Also, what is true for you is not necessarily true for someone else. The stars will support you in getting comfortable with the relativity of truth.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The reason James Bond is such a popular character is that he's unflappable. And so are you. To maintain your composure in the face of a threat is to achieve the higher levels of grace.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are in a position to say "yes" to a project or investment. Timing is key. Your winning answer will bring a small profit -- something to build on.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your life is filled with fulfilling, quality pursuits because you give your attention to worthy aims. How you judge the worthiness of your goals will be key.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Family business is your business, whether you want it to be or not. You keep getting roped into duty. You won't mind the pickle they put you in today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just when you think you have it all figured out, experience will bring you something baffling and new. Tonight, counteract negativity by including and loving the one who offends you.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 18). It would be exhausting and unwise to react to everything. This year you gain strength, popularity and vitality because you are so choosy with your reactions. Your focus on successful actions and relationships will help you thrive. July and September bring exciting new relationships. November shows you the money. Aries and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 23, 11, 27 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "What kind of relationship would result from a Gemini and Aquarius connection?"
With Aquarius, Gemini's fascinations are encouraged and supported. The novel and new have incredible appeal for this brainy air-air combination. Aquarius has a talent for dropping lucky opportunities into Gemini's lap. And life with the water-bearer is like a trip to another very cool planet, a shimmery and dazzling planet full of shiny new toys and experiences, which Gemini, who lives to try to taste everything, digs. Gemini is the sign of youth, and the twins bring out the water-bearer's inner child so the more reserved WB's can finally relax and breathe. Ah! Isn't it fun to play again? Stimulated by Gemini's seemingly endless interests and socializing, Gemini's vivacity is a pheromone for Aquarius, with the bonus of giving the water-bearer the confidence in love he sometimes lacks. They both have an erratic orbit: Gemini changes identities without warning, and Aquarius is famously unpredictable. So nothing about this love is staid -- it's pure excitement, just the way they like it. The romance sparkles, but even if they should part ways, it will have been a fabulous ride.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Isabella Rossellini was born in the sign of the twins, and she is a twin, too. Her sister, Isotta Ingrid Rossellini, is a distinguished professor of Italian literature and cinema. The Rossellini twins were born when the sun and Venus were in erudite Gemini, endowing them with intellectual prowess and a mischievous sense of humor. Their Mercury in Cancer indicates a strong psychic bond with their mother.
