Venus Calls for Loving Words
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one really enjoys interacting with a loved one who is tired, distracted and preoccupied, yet these are very common moods that prevail in most households. Yours will be different only because you make sure it's so.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don't do nothing about something, and don't do something about nothing. If you follow only those two rules, your day will be on point and on purpose.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Those who see unfulfilled desire as an affirmation of powerlessness will experience that. Those who see unfulfilled desire as an opportunity will grow and learn the art of fulfillment.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 7). This solar return finds you in a sweet position to leverage your talents and work your advantages, although it may take you several weeks to figure out exactly what they are. Expert advice will help you get what you're missing. December and May are the luckiest financially. You'll close a deal in January. Aquarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 16, 3, 28 and 11.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "If the planet Mars is represented by the Emperor card in the typical tarot deck, does that mean Aries is, too?"
Yes! Mars is the ruling planet of Aries the ram, and so they share a lot of the same characteristics and properties, including the symbol of the Emperor in tarot. Aries is known as a natural leader, being the first sign of the zodiac. He typically starts things off with a bang, charges into a project with guns a-blazin' and the best of intentions -- and then loses interest. Yes, Aries is great at getting things rolling, but often burns out before finishing the job: one of the pitfalls of being a fire sign. Hire the right people to see a project through to completion, however, and Aries comes out a hero. The Emperor can be like this, too, a master of the short-term vision. (He's better off leaving the long-term plans to his wife, the Empress.) If the Emperor is reversed (upside down), he's kind of like a politician who gets elected on a platform of urban renewal, gets construction started on all these new buildings, and then runs out of money to finish them.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Simon Cowell is often accused of being heartless, but his natal chart reveals him to be quite simply pragmatic. His natal sun, Mercury and Mars are all in the relationship-oriented sign of Libra, which suggests that he does his best to make sure that his business and personal partnerships are peaceful. His outspoken Sagittarius moon spurs him to say what others might think but wouldn't utter.
