Venus/Mars Hookup

This connection of Venus and Mars in the fire sign of Aries is ultra-hot and bodes well for male/female relations. It's the first of three such meetings this year, and it's a time to fully appreciate what the opposite sex has to contribute to your life. The more you enjoy the perks of your gender the more the other gender will respond.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are feeling fickle and could agitate someone with your indecision, especially someone with hopes for your exclusive attention. Just remember that you don't owe anyone anything.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are humble enough to see that you need to work hard, yet confident enough to see that, at your best, you can absolutely outshine the competition.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your love life will get the focus today. Singles will make a connection with someone witty and fun. Couples will add a new exciting element to their routine. When your heart is happy, so are you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your view will be obstructed, and therefore you'll have to take the first step in faith. This will make it a more memorable experience. Others have done this, too. You have nothing to worry about.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A loved one's attention is fixed on you. Now that you have it, reward the behavior. Also note that your whims may seem off course, but ultimately, if you follow them, you will find a better route to where you're going.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Accountability is the theme. Make sure your team knows what you want them to do. And if you're not sure who is on your team, this is a fine time to sort that out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As for the mundane details of life's maintenance, you're not that interested right now. You're also not so keen on the hard facts and the logic. You're busy feeling your way through, and that will work beautifully.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Everyone wants to give advice whether or not they really have their own thing together. Is that help, or is it ego? Either way, there are a few gems in what comes toward you that are definitely worth listening to.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are not responsible for the energy of the world, but you definitely have the power to influence it. Use that power today. Your smile is one of the least expensive and most effective things you can offer.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don't make the mistake of defining yourself based on what you do for others. They might define you according to those terms, and it's egocentric (yet very human) of them to do so, but you should not.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Thinking out loud is fun when you have a responsive audience. Don't confuse thoughts with facts, though. The internal dialogue is a sea of opinions generated by an extremely active and malleable mind.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If they assume they are doing you a favor by instructing you, they'll get a surprise. You prefer to seek your own instruction -- or, differently put, "Don't tell me what to do."


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 21). Seize the advantage you couldn't act on until this year. You'll fully maximize it in March. April brings public praise. May features better living through diet, exercise and relationships. Transportation improvements happen in August. You'll get where you want to go mentally and physically. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 33, 22, 41, 24 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My sister gets everything she wants, especially men, while I'm lucky to get a guy to talk to me. Her birthday is 5/21/70; mine is 12/19/71. Is this the way it will always be?"

It's difficult to live in anyone's shadow, but especially that of an older sibling. Your sister is a Gemini, with Mercury and Mars in that outgoing and often flirtatious sign, as well. You are a Sagittarius, with Mercury, the planet influencing communication, in Sagittarius traveling backward at the time of your birth. This retrograde motion turns the energy of that planet inward, in your case making it more challenging for you to connect with others at times. The good news is, as a Sagittarius, you are a highly thoughtful person, interested in education and travel. When you speak up, you come across as very intelligent and intriguing. Remember that it's not how many guys you talk to; it's finding the right guy. He's out there for you. Don't you worry your pretty head about it.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: "Criminal Minds" star Jennifer Love Hewitt has grown up in the public eye. This intuitive Pisces was born when Jupiter was in Leo, the sign of show business, indicating that the more she's in the public eye the luckier she gets. The Sagittarius moon is a worldly and sophisticated influence that amps up curiosity and signifies global appeal.
