Power and the Planets

Holiday Mathis on

The distribution of power is often much trickier and more nuanced than appearances suggest. Power rides on perception. Perception is governed by what is made public or kept private. Tomorrow's Mercury-Pluto conjunction will be a light switch, able to illuminate or darken the halls with a flick. Get ready for a redistribution of power.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today will present a "try before you buy" situation in the form of an item or an idea you can play around with awhile before it's decision time. You might be surprised about what makes the cut.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Steer clear of the "amateur therapy zone," in which under-qualified people are overtly attempting to fix emotional matters. Leave it to the professionals. You can learn a lot more in the "zone of casual relating and observing."

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is easier to be kind and loving when you feel safe. That's why erecting an imaginary bubble of psychic protection around yourself will help your interactions. You'll be open and empathetic, yet you'll deflect negativity.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You won't shy away from confrontation; rather, you'll strive to face it the most effective way you can find. You won't mind playing "bad cop" to someone's "good cop" if it keeps the peace in the end.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's a little weird when spending your money becomes a group activity. However, weird can be good! And anyway, today this committee approach will be way more fun than spending your money alone.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Funny thoughts can be wise, and serious thoughts can be foolish. A great thing about today is that it won't be necessary to categorize your thoughts in any terms other than "helpful" or "not helpful."

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are stepping into the gravitational pull of a different sphere of influence. It could be a new crush that will get you orbiting, or it could be an idea, project or attractive interest that draws you ever nearer.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There will be a strong inclination to rate yourself. If you must, then grade solely on what you've learned. Note that it would be ridiculous to grade yourself on money and resources you don't have.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe you don't really have bad habits after all. Maybe you just have a few different versions of yourself vying for ultimate power over you, each trying to do what will serve its unique purpose.
