Mercury and Jupiter Conjunction
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just because a person isn't unkind doesn't mean that person is good or right for you. Neglect is often worse than meanness. You deserve respect, attention and support. Are you getting enough of that?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even though there are so many miracles around for you to appreciate, not everything can be profound, because that would mean that nothing is. A new sense of purpose will help you prioritize and focus accordingly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Measure the distance between you and the outcome you now desire to see if it's even possible to get there in one move, because today's problem isn't like a ladder; it's more like a chasm. It can't be bridged in two steps.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 18). You'll have less time to discuss the greats because you'll be too busy becoming one of them. This solar return shows you methodically doing what it takes to see your goal through. The abundant trust and love of others is your blessing, too -- one that comes with many responsibilities. Taurus and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 20, 19, 40 and 22.
TURN THE DOWNSIDE OF YOUR SIGN INTO AN ASSET: Each sign has strengths and weaknesses, and often they are the very same qualities. LEO'S drive to entertain people can lead to grandiose plans that never quite pan out. The cat is also ambitious and prideful -- two qualities that often go right before "the fall." But if no one tried to flesh out a grandiose vision, what a bleak world it would be! Also, the failings of Leos trying to entertain people are often even more entertaining than if they had succeeded with their original plans. For the cat, the main way to succeed is not to take any of it too seriously.
VIRGOS are famous for their perfectionism. They focus on the details and make every effort to get them right. If they are not careful, they can spend way too much time on very small efforts that the world will not appreciate, while missing out on the opportunity to make a significant impact overall. For Virgo, it is crucial to make an assessment of what will matter and what won't over the course of time. Each project should be summed up before the very first move is made. Careful planning helps the Virgo apply detail-oriented energy where it will be most effective.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rumor has it that Zac Efron will be playing the "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" Ted Bundy in a thriller depicting the crimes of this terrifying serial killer. This is a bold career move for the loveable Libra, who is typically singing, dancing and making his audience laugh. Lucky Jupiter in Aries indicates perpetual career hotness, suggesting that Efron can afford to take the risk.
