Venus and Pluto Call a Truce

Holiday Mathis on

It's said that people don't make you have a feeling, that the feeling is made inside of you, constructed from an interpretation of the stimuli. While this is might be technically true, it's also practically ridiculous. People affect each other. That's part of the human experience. While Venus and Pluto work things out, make kindness a top priority.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Nothing is quite as permanent as it might seem today, especially if it has to do with the words of men. Ironclad decisions can be reversed. What's written in stone can be shattered, chipped away or eroded by waves.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). On a molecular level, most things are more empty space than solid matter. That's why you shouldn't worry if your wishes haven't yet materialized. Fill the empty space with imaginings. Believe in the potential of things.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've worked hard to achieve a certain standard in your work, and now it's time to work just as hard (or maybe harder) to market it. Don't be afraid. A savvy fire sign can help (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius).

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Playing it cool can also just be a form of fear. To engage will be the stronger choice. You progress the relationship when you tell them what you think, express your likes and are warm, not cool.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You won't regret erring on the side of kindness and discretion. You'll probably see a hundred ways to improve a situation, but it would be useless to point that out. People are trying their best given what they currently know.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Because misinformation runs amok in the world, people you trust could accidentally lead you astray. Your skepticism is healthy. Do your own research.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What works for other people won't necessarily work for you, and what works for you won't necessarily work for others. Still, the recommendations will be appreciated, and a nice way to connect.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). "I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it," quipped comedy writer Jack Handey. And though you'll be keenly aware that life is no joke, you'll find much to laugh at today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You're looking for a role model, all the while acutely attuned to the fact that none will be perfect and the ones who want your money in exchange are likely even less so. Keep your eyes peeled.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though it makes no sense to compare another person's strengths to your weaknesses, that happens quite often in your mind lately. You're not the only one. Everybody does this. But it's time to just stop.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you could take the other person's pain you would. And it would only be fair that you also took some of the joy and success, too, right? But you can't take either. So hold hands, but bring the focus back to your own experience.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The Zen master suggests that everything that follows the word "I" is an illusion. If this is true than you can't possibly be right, and the other person can't possibly be wrong. It's all just trading illusions.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 28). In full realization of your uniqueness, you won't even try to be someone special. You'll just be who you are. You'll fill out your potential, and you'll settle into a powerful mode of being. A breakthrough in your work will come in November. There's real satisfaction in love for you in 2018. Family will surround you. Sagittarius and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 22, 28 and 31.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "Do you think my boyfriend, who is a Scorpio born under a Scorpio moon, is cheating on me? I asked him to take the cellphone challenge where you switch phones with the person you're in a relationship with, and he wouldn't do it. He was so offended. He said that if I trusted him I wouldn't ask to keep his phone for a weekend and that if I didn't trust him I should just break up with him. But if he has nothing to hide, what is he so afraid of? Do you think I should break up with him?"

In his defense, Scorpio people are extremely private, and it makes sense that he wouldn't want you to have his phone, even if he wasn't seeing anyone else. On the other hand, if he's willing to give up the entire relationship for something as trivial as a weekend experiment in technology swapping, perhaps this tie isn't really worth holding onto. Your time is extremely valuable, and you have 7 billion choices of with whom to spend it. This Scorpio sun transit is an excellent time to think about what you want out of your relationships. You deserve to be with someone you can really trust.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: With an unparalleled superstar smile and serious talent, Scorpio Academy Award winner Julia Roberts is a consistent box office smash hit and one of the highest-paid movie actresses of all time. Her sun, Mercury and Neptune are in Scorpio, suggesting a strong preference for privacy and a skill for achieving it despite her celebrity status. Roberts' moon, Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto are all in down-to-earth Virgo.
