There are many ways to get to the same emotion. Satisfaction can be achieved as easily through work as it can through play. The elation of adventure might be found while peering through the window of a plane, or maybe it's found in the flickering eyes of a sweetheart. Yesterday's Venus change is already affecting our emotional approach.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're a person who's not afraid of being wrong because you really want to know what's right, and so you'll meet even your own perception with some measure of doubt. This takes a secure person.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Familiar emotions, even negative ones, get comfortable. To feel a certain way might be nothing more than a habit. The more times you conjure up a feeling, the easier it will be to do so.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may find yourself replaying a drama over and over, and it's certainly getting old. But don't worry: The addition of even one new friend is enough to shake up the whole dynamic.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The miners weren't the only ones to get rich in the gold rush. Those in the business of selling shovels did mighty fine as well. There's some kind of shovel-equivalent in your realm. Do you know what it is yet?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's easier to be yourself when you're comfortable. Getting comfortable is the tricky part, especially in situations and around people very foreign to you. Settling in will take time and repeated exposure.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you knew you were going to get criticized for it, would you still do it? Better question: What if you knew that no matter what choice you made, it would get criticized? What would you do then?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you try too hard to forget something you'll remember it well, and if you try too hard to remember something you'll forget it. The answer is to write things down. Somehow this will magically help with both remembering and forgetting.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anticipate boredom, and decide that you're going to do something about it beyond your phone. For instance, paying attention to something different in the scene will open the way to new insights.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When others behave badly, it makes you want to do better. The misbehavior of others will cause you to check yourself to make sure you are not committing a similar offense.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your originality will shine through today. You'll be in the same situation as the others and take something totally different from it. For this reason, they need you and you need them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Occasionally, the social aspect of your work can go against your mood. But once you adjust and get into the flow, your mood will change for the better. There's a prize at the end of the interaction. This one is not to be missed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be drawn to neutral places and underwhelming experiences, because environments that lack excitement encourage imagination. In the quiet, you'll solve a problem.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 8). You'll wield great powers of magnetism this solar return, some of which come from knowing what you want and being confident in your plan. You'll get a number of joiners before the end of the year. A special person will come back into your life. An out-of-balance exchange will become equal and just. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 16, 20 and 1.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "My husband just informed me that all the workers in his company agreed to take a 25 percent pay cut in order to keep the business going without having to fire anyone. We already live month-to-month and have very little savings. Where is the extra money going to come from to fill in the gaps? We have two children, an 8-year-old and a 14-year-old. Should we tell them that we're having financial difficulty? How would you advise me to cut back? I am really stressed out about this. I'm a Pisces."
Don't lose your composure. You are lucky to have your health, each other and a source of income. And you have many other blessings, as well, so start counting them. Talk about your wealth -- your true wealth -- your relationships and all of the joy and connection that couldn't be bought with money. Apply your ethereal Pisces nature as you account for your many treasures of the spirit. These acts will help you slip into a headspace of "having" instead of a headspace of "wanting" or "lacking." Instead of telling your children that you're having financial trouble, model strength, creativity and resourcefulness. You'll figure this one out. Feel and act rich: That is what you really are.
