Sun and Neptune Perspective Shift
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some say the people around you are a random matter, and others believe that fate has a hand in it and that you cross paths with people for a reason. Whichever way you believe, it will prove so very true today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The way to learn anger management is to get angry and then manage it. If you don't often get angry, you have less practice. Though you can't always choose how to feel, sometimes you can. It's the crux of today's challenge.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Those who don't like confrontation may not understand the euphoria some get from being in the heat of the battle. They'll keep fighting for the sake of it, even after all has been technically resolved.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 4). This solar return gives you guts and glory. As you become increasingly independent of the good opinion of others, you're able to go places and experience things you wouldn't have considered before. Your sphere of influence expands, and resources open up to you. You'll give half away to those who need it more. Libra and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 33, 28, 49 and 6.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: You can do things in dreams that you almost never get the chance to do in life -- for instance, fly, fight the bad creatures, get endlessly lost in strange towns while realizing that you also can't find your clothes. Many people are relieved to wake up and discover that the current adventure is only a dream. Some wish they could wake up from their waking lives in a similar fashion. The annual conjunction of the sun -- the planet that rules identity -- and Neptune, the sign of dreams, will bring a sort of awakening, or at the very least a much-needed perspective shift. Whether you need to see the bigger picture or the smaller one, Neptune helps you mentally fit into the required space for an enlightening point of view.
Mercury and Venus both get reborn in Aries this week. Aries is the sign of the ram, the firstborn child of the zodiac and the cosmic warrior. Mercury will energize our mundane lives with this shift, adding ambition to ordinary pursuits and a sprinkle of competition for good measure. Venus in Aries favors young love, meet-cutes and the kind of adversarial love one might find in the opening minutes of a romantic comedy.
Jupiter turns retrograde on Thursday, mixing up our notions of good luck and bad as though there were no difference.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Former Victoria's Secret angel Erin Heatherton bridged the career gap between model and actress with roles in the movie "Grown Ups 2" and the television series "The League." There's more to come for the Pisces born with three planets in ambitious, business-minded Capricorn. With Mars and Jupiter in the fiscally oriented Taurus, Heatherton has the natal chart of a mogul.
