An alignment of Mercury and Saturn reminds us that comfort can lead to pain. For instance, the comfort of not exerting yourself physically leads to weak muscles that don't support you properly when you're ready to rock. Go for the pain that leads to comfort instead of seeking the comfort that leads to pain.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The daydreaming has been fun, but now you're in the mood to make it happen -- to embrace your inspiration and turn it into a practical plan. Start with research, and ask for personal recommendations.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's as if you can't stop your good fortune. You'll receive when all you're trying to do is give. Tonight you could change everything just by holding someone's hand.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Dark clouds will pass quickly. Just make sure your windows are closed. Controlling your own personal environment is much easier when you stop fretting about the uncontrollable larger setting.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Creating moments with people is kind of your thing today! And if there are missteps, just chalk that up to part of the fun. They'll later forget the particulars and mostly remember how you made them feel.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know you're not the finished product yet. You'll never be! You're always growing and changing. So don't let the little instructive corrections along the way get you down, nor should you let the compliments go to your head.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You've got your eye on a person or business you'd like to be involved with, but you don't know everything about it yet. If you're to be in this kind of relationship, adjustments must happen. Find out first: Will it be worth your while?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Numbers are a part of the game you can't avoid. How can you get the numbers up? This probably has to do with seeing, advertising to and interacting with more people.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Exert your autonomy. Don't attach too much weight onto the connection you have with another person or accept anyone else's definition of who you are or what you're doing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Trust and openness do not happen overnight. It takes time to build a relationship that allows you to reveal information without fear that it will be used to undermine your position.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Everyone is a little worried about being misinterpreted and coming off badly. Let's hope that makes you feel a little better about your own minor insecurities.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll get to decide the meaning of a situation. Whether this scene feels positive or negative to you, assign a meaning that helps you move on from it with the greatest ease.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There's a dark emotional place to flush out. Face it; walk into it and turn on your flashlight. Sweep the cobwebs. Scare the creatures. Generally clean this space up so you can keep going. Don't dwell in it!
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 27). What you once thought of as a lofty aim is proving to be well within your capability. You'll barely have to reach and it's yours at the turn of the year. You'll accomplish something remarkable with a trusted friend. Publicize this! There will be a fun twist in your family story, followed by a journey together. Taurus and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 22, 35, 14 and 19.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "My close girlfriend (a Pisces) told me that my fiance (also a Pisces) was flirting with her and that he tried to kiss her. It was at a party, and they had been drinking. I had left already because I had to work in the morning. Anyway, I didn't bring it up with my fiance, but I see no reason why my friend would lie to me about this. Do you think I should call off the engagement? He did cheat on me three years ago, but we got past it. I'm a Virgo."
It's true that Pisces are impressionable sorts, known for getting caught up in the moment. Pisces men are sensitive, too, and this could be a case of your Pisces fiance's crumbling under the pressure as you get closer to your wedding date, but more than likely, he was just being the way he is. If infidelity is a deal breaker for you, you'd be wise to heed this situation as a harbinger of things to come. The fact that he chose a person very close to you means that he was willing to risk your finding out, and maybe he even wanted you to find out. Investigate further before you do any more wedding planning.

A tragic childhood led Hendrix to search for freedom, personal expression and artistic liberation through his love affair with the electric guitar. Hendrix was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were in the passionate and adventurous fire sign of Sagittarius. "Excuse me while I kiss the sky," he once sang.
