The Rebel Yell of Uranus
According to the classic Billy Idol tune, the rebel yell cries, "More, more, more!" Uranus, the sign of such yelling (and the accompanying insatiable appetite), brings a screeching halt to his retrograde and decides to fly in the other direction. This gives a good jostle to the groggy Aries energies that were somewhat introverted in past months.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). People may not immediately wrap their heads around what you're doing if it's something they've never seen before. Be willing to show them again. Space it out. Do this gently and over time. This is the price of being a trailblazer.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's not an acting job: You really are just as enthusiastic over the success of others as you are of your own. Maybe it's because we're all in this together. One person's win is the sign of a rising tide that will carry all ships.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). While others seem perfectly satisfied with what's happening, you sense that there is something wrong with the system. You're correct. Something's amiss. Get to the bottom of it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Small things do matter, but they don't make a definitive point. Details can mislead. A single event will only tell part of the story. More of the story will be revealed in a pattern of events. All of the story is impossible to know.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The worthiest goals are basically anti-goals today. For instance, a goal not to do things that are going to embarrass you later, or not to spend time on things that won't matter in the long run, will be a worthy goal indeed.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Because you calculate risk differently for yourself than you do for others, and because you're protective by nature, you'll take certain shortcuts alone that you wouldn't lead others along.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don't always have to feel passionate to be effective. Though you may not feel like working, going out or spending time with a certain person, you'll show up anyway, and good results will come.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your willingness to submit yourself to a certain amount of social awkwardness in order to make a connection is admirable. And awkwardness will ensue! So will the connection.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Because you see things how they are and you do things the way they ought to be done, you'll be admired and promoted. Hard to say why these abilities are so rarely demonstrated these days, but this works in your favor.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The problem is wrapped around an opportunity, and all you have to do is tear away at it a bit and you'll get to the good stuff. In fact, this little nuisance could be the start of a huge enterprise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll have double the energy of yesterday, and it will show in all you do. If you walked a mile, you'll now walk two. If you made a friend, you'll make two more today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are two sides to the story, and you'll benefit from hearing them both. Actually, there are many more than two sides, but if you listen to too many sides you'll begin to get tired of this story.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 2). Because your needs are met so beautifully and abundantly you'll be moved to help others. This only grows the bounty coming your way this year. A study helps you pick up more work. Your fan base includes someone who wants to give you special care: You don't need it, but it's wonderful anyway. Aquarius and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 38, 32 14 and 18.
COSMICALLY CURIOUS ABOUT... EMPATHS: Once upon a "Star Trek" series, there was "Next Generation" character called Deanna Troi who was half-human, half-Betazoid, and who, through some gift of paranormal electronics, had the ability to sense emotions telepathically. Troi is credited for bringing the term "empath" to mainstream consciousness. The term has since evolved to various meanings and connotations, some of them vaguely otherworldly with an inference that empaths are part of a phenomenon of evolved spiritual beings meant to heal the planet with their gifts of augmented emotional IQ, compassion, observation and general sensitivity.
Science fiction casts empaths as characters who can feel the pain of the world, know the feelings of those at a great distance, or in some cases absorb the feelings of others parasitically to use for their own purposes.
Increasingly, highly sensitive people are identifying as empaths in a psychological and physiological terms. The human brain contains a specialized group of cells that enable people to mirror one another's emotions. Evidence shows that these mirror neurons are more active and hyper-responsive in the brains of empaths, a tendency that can be genetically passed on.
