Today's Mercury and Jupiter conjunction urges us to consider who's talking. Usually, talk is cheap, but that depends on who's talking. For the most part, problems don't go away just because someone utters a few supportive or informative words. But, if that someone happens to be powerful, their talk makes things happen.
Happy birthday March 27: Welcome to your year of easy but profound change. You aspire to habits, adopt them, build on them and gain the benefits that come from the discipline you've always wanted for yourself. You're so attractive that people will seek your company and guidance. More highlights: an opportunity to teach, the keys to an exclusive situation and a loving sidekick.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Minor irritants and annoyances can be chalked up to life as usual. But persistent pain of any kind, including emotional, warrants investigation. What is it trying to tell you? Heed the message, which will lead you down a path of healing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): To move forward in life, you'll need to break the current pattern. Patterns break the same way everything else does -- with a jarring interruption of the status quo. Try bending them the opposite way until they snap.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You expect nothing in return for your kindness, though actually, the return is inherent to the act. Kindness to others stops you from being overly focused on yourself and anything bothering you. Trying to alleviate another person's suffering will automatically lessen your own.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Unfinished business is the enemy of a beautiful day. It creates drama, clutter and distraction. What's undone is always at the back of your mind -- a detriment to focus and momentum. Stop and handle the hard stuff, then proceed to a truly wonderful day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your frustration is not a sign of inadequacy, rather it's a sign of knowing you're capable of great things. Take a breath and try this mantra: "I have plenty of time to figure this out."
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It's a day to test the recipe, apply the theory and follow the assembly instructions. You'll need to build the thing to know whether these abstract ideas will pan out in practice.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Many take stability for granted, but having been in unstable environments, you prize predictable comforts. You also value people who, like you, do what they say they are going to do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): It's not hard to nurture connections. Mostly, it's a matter of attendance. Whether it's a conversation, event or task, if you know that it means something to your loved one, you'll be sure to show up. Your presence will be requested.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll be much more productive than the others, which leads you to wonder if you're doing it right. Should you be pacing yourself, or are they slacking? Should you be in a more challenging position? Not everything will get answered today, but some of it will.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't waste a minute thinking you should be feeling differently. Your emotions flow in their own way without regard to your preferences. Whatever comes up, accept it and steer the action from there.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Examine your motives. If you're unsure of what they are, your best clues will come from looking at what's happening around you. Your circumstances will reflect your intentions. You can change your purpose at any moment of your choosing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Today, you'll be receiving good fortune, not creating it. Doing too much gets in the way of what the universe is trying to do for you. Relax a bit. In a sense, doing too much is undoing.
JUPITER'S BIG TALK
Usually, talk is cheap, but that depends on who's talking. For the most part, problems don't go away just because someone utters a few supportive or informative words. But, if that someone happens to be powerful, their talk makes things happen. Today's Mercury and Jupiter conjunction urges us to consider the mouthpiece.
As fans await the much-anticipated "Kill Bill Vol. 3," Quentin Tarantino fills in the gap with a television series "Bounty Law," a spinoff of "Once Upon a Time in ... Hollywood" centered on the character Jake Cahill. The iconic Aries filmmaker was born when both the sun and communication planet were in the fiery, headstrong warrior station. Mars was in Leo, the sign of entertainment, and Neptune, the planet of dreams, was in intense Scorpio.
