If you're not sure if you want the thing more than you fear it, maybe it doesn't matter now as Neptune changes direction. Just keep going and the energies of desire and fear will become so intertwined in the pursuit that they will begin to form a very strong cord -- the cord that pulls you forward.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today you're the undisputed champion of "why not?" and all your team will benefit from your moxie. Even some who aren't on your team will win. And then they'll come to your team, too.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your joy will be infectious, and you don't have to talk about what's making you happy for this to be the case. It's the laugh of your heart that's heard for miles and miles.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The great debates stir great passions. Unfortunately, so do stupid ones these days, so be careful. And if you take a break from debating altogether, if just for today, you'll have energy for more worthy pursuits.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Nature has many ways of helping prey evade the predator -- for instance, being covered in prickles, being impossible to catch, tasting bad or looking like you taste bad. You'll be as clever as nature in your avoidance of trouble.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Domesticity can do awful things to love. One moment love is a galaxy in your heart where you dream of each other; the next moment it's stinky socks and the cold laundry cycle. So savor the poetry when it comes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Even though there are a lot of people who do what you do, your unique expression could not be duplicated by anyone in the whole world. It's why it's so important that you show up and deliver.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As your project evolves, so will your opinion of it. That's why you'll benefit from being noncommittal. Leave yourself some wiggle room in case your feelings develop in a different direction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's no shame in saying "I don't know" when that's the truth of it. It might also be good to say "I don't know" when there's someone to protect or when you just aren't totally sure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). By evolutionary design, pain is the easiest thing to remember. Pain and where the food is. What keeps us alive also keeps us struggling, but you'll do something beautiful with that today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be practical realities to process, work around, conquer... and maybe end once and for all. When you can make the rules for your life, do it. It's not always this way. Take advantage of your freedom.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don't waste a moment being bored or doubtful. Something is coming; you can trust this. You've the capacity for experiences you haven't thought of -- experiences you don't even know exist.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The way you put yourself together is a gift to both you and them. The special care you take in assembling what you'll wear, say and more will add up to a super-successful presentation.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 22). You've a few surprises up your sleeve, and they will be very well received over the next three months. You may start to wonder if the job you took on is really within your ability. No one is successful alone. Reach out and let others help you. By doing this you are also helping them. Libra and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 2, 22 and 18.
HOLIDAY COPING STRATEGIES BY SIGN, PART TWO: It's been said that families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts. Here's how to enjoy them without bellyaching. CANCER: There's no getting around it, so you may as well own it: Much of the cooking, entertaining and general managing will fall on your shoulders. And it should. You're the best at it. But don't let anyone take you for granted just because they happen to share your last name. Make sure that everyone gets the pleasure of contributing, helping and, most of all, cleaning up. It's the least they can do! LEO: Because you aim to make even daily experiences special, the added pressure of publicly sanctioned special occasions sometimes seems overwhelming. So your first order of business is to calm down and realize that you don't have to try so hard. Every touch doesn't have to bare your style stamp. A new cranberry recipe or the perfect centerpiece is not going to make the event. The very act of getting together is enough. VIRGO: Take your extra-long to-do list and tear it in half. Keep one half, and kindly hand the other to your mother, sister, assistant, significant other or person holding a "Will Work for Food" sign at the bottom of the freeway exit.
