Jupiter Conjunction Countdown

Holiday Mathis on

It's all inside you. This is hard to grasp and hold with you through the entire day, but try and believe it for a few moments at a time whenever you start searching outside for peace, beauty and justice. It's in you already. Don't turn your head for it; close your eyes instead. Reinforce often to make the most of tomorrow's Jupiter conjunction.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). That thing that's not working is really and truly done. You can jiggle it and unplug it until the end of days, and it's still not going to work. So accept it, toss it, and go looking for something new.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You had certain rules for yourself, and it turns out that they don't all apply anymore. You need new ones, but not yet. This is a time of questioning, poking around at the system and experimenting with what might work.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Blood is thicker than water, which is why you have to be nice to the person who seems intent on driving you crazy. Making concessions for family is just part of being in one.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you pay for a mistake, try to pay only once. Be like the animals. They pay one time per mistake. They don't dwell in guilt and shame and bad memories. Take the lesson; put it in your pocket; and keep moving along.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don't have to be good at it the first time or ever. But you'll be better for giving it a whirl. Believe this, and take it to every cell and atom of your being: The only ones who truly fail are the ones who never try.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can give the same performance to your bathroom mirror, a stadium of people or millions on television and social media. The numbers don't change your part of it. So work on your part of it today, and forget the numbers.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your words have creative power. Their meaning and the way you give them will make things happen very quickly today: good things, bad things -- it all depends on what comes out of your mouth, and luckily you've a lot of control over it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't want to brag, but it also wouldn't hurt to talk about what you've been up to. Otherwise, you'll miss out on future opportunities. Don't worry: You can be modest and still express the truth about what you do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Most likely, the ideal circumstance will go masquerading as something far, far less than. Consider that the ideal circumstance may be ideal precisely because rising above it is what's required.

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.
