Are you wily and secretive because you were born in early November or fearless and initiating because you were born in early March? Any astrologer will tell you it isn’t necessarily so. To be a textbook Gemini, for example, you must be born at dawn during a new moon — a total of four hours in any given May-June. What are the odds? Born near 4 or 7 p.m.? You are not representative of your sign. 2 or 9 p.m.? You are especially compatible with others who share your element. For a personal reading, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
When Uranus and Mars are kind, we are surprised by passionate declarations of love. Expect the unexpected. One who has been cool heats up and craves contribution to your righteous cause. In your struggle, you are a romantic figure and are stockpiling the admiration of those who will soon elevate you. Low key power plays delight.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
In the last weeks of your Jupiter year, scrutinize your expansion. There can be growth of fat, a lot of extra stuff — maybe even on your body — or the richness of a new philosophy that enables you to produce so much more for so much less stress. A large tithe not only redeems you, but also opens more doors. Your gift is cosmic tuition.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your worldly image is elevated as you meet those who truly appreciate your gifts. Professionally, you are enriched where you apply your skills of nurturance. By truly caring about a work issue, you will regenerate an old passion for productivity. New alliances can be found where propriety is required. Spiff it up: you’re center stage.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You have a secret admirer who is much too classy to show their hand. Don’t be tempted to lure the attraction to the surface for the sake of ego or some equally silly excuse. You hold the cards when there is only subtle acknowledgment. In rushing, you will lose something precious. Consider the scheduling of others.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Intuition is off the charts, so don’t waste time questioning that small voice within. Host a meal for loyal associates. Everyone needs time to relate on a social level. Dialing out at home closes more deals than the power suit and the streets. Hide out. They’ll really miss you. This is good. Be a spiritual foster parent.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Conspiracy theories dance in your gray matter. Pull away from intimacy long enough to spend time and money on self-improvement. The image you leave with new associates is crucial to new business in the new year. Social obligations have hidden silver linings. Be gracious.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Prone to intuition over demanding answers, your cool insouciance wins fans and new assistance. Communication tends to be emotional; take time to be neutral before decision. A short trip is spiritually draining, but you can close a painful chapter when you recognize a finality. In many ways, you are free. Celebrate.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Consider all who serve you with a jaundiced eye. Some have been in service so long, they think they can be you or provide your service. Loyalty is not important here; instead, familiarity breeds contempt. You will know the false prophets. New vendors better serve the new you. Be ruthless.
Cancer (June 21-Aug. 22)
Mars retrograde warns. Tension will attack the stomach. Indigestion should send you to the spa to rest and let go. Wit is a fabulous gift until it turns on itself with worry. Crabs benefit most from the comforts of home. Recent nutritional resolutions reflect a new emotional peace. Conscious intake, ideas, and food will heal.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Financial matters are front and center. You have an opportunity to a boost an income level when you raise your rates. Austere spending habits now would make next year fiscally significant. Are you strong enough to defer pleasure? Where childhood reactive habits are no longer effective, apply behavior modification. Be stalwart.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
A special project fattens the coffers and your confidence in your abilities. Renew a communications system with the latest technology, and it will immediately pay off. Siblings and neighbors have specialized information to shed light on a controversy. In competition, you will triumph; give those presentations your all for easy success.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You are attracting the big investors; let them know that it’s a win-win situation. Alliances are extra generous with all types of resources; be especially open to alternative ideas. By expecting a certain outcome, you are limiting the returns. Give others credit for seeing a bigger picture. A structured partnership is instantly fertile. Be creative.
