Jupiter Conjunction Countdown
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If it makes you feel good at the end of the day, do it. If not, don't justify an action by trying to convince yourself that there are important reasons you must. The proof of an action will be in the results.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People forget about kindness quite a lot lately, overlooking the gentle spirit of compassion to choose something with more of a charge to it -- such as self-righteousness or arrogance. Meanwhile, kind is usually the best thing to be.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The magic of lowered expectations will play a part in today's mood. When you're not expecting much you can take each interaction and experience at face value, which, it turns out, will be a pretty high value indeed.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 25). This solar return favors your wilder dreams, and they have as much of a chance of coming true as the ones that seem right in your wheelhouse. So if you've ever wanted to live in another country, own an exotic pet, scale a mountain or the like, begin and you'll see progress immediately. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 3, 22, 26 and 45.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Gemini who suffers from an anxiety disorder. As part of my mental health plan, a doctor suggested that I keep a journal of my feelings and experiences. I'll admit that I fantasize about one day writing a book. But my problem is that picking up a journal triggers a lot of negative feelings for me. When I was a child I was forced to write for long periods of time in what I now see as a bizarre form of child abuse. Will I ever get over this? What do you suggest?"
Born under the sign of communication, your drive to express yourself is part of your healing process. Because of this negative experience with writing, maybe you could ease into journaling by expanding your view of what a journal is. You don't have to write words in it. You could draw pictures or tape photos to the pages. You could fill the pages with collected mementos from your day -- flowers, tickets, wrappers, etc. Or you could journal in audio or video form. The important part is that you develop a practice of expressing yourself and reinforcing the idea that your experience matters.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Witness: The Tour began in September and will continue to keep Katy Perry busy through much of 2018. Perry is an intuitive Scorpio born under five psychic Scorpio luminaries. She shows her edgy Scorpio side with artistic decisions that graze the taboo and make people think just a little while they're laughing, dancing and singing along. Global-minded Sagittarius is another strong influence in Perry's chart.
