Planetary Traffic Jam
This is a rare level of cosmic activity -- an intersection of planetary agendas. It's hard to know what to pay attention to. Pretend like you're in a rush-hour-traffic flow. Stay focus and patient. Mercury and Jupiter warn against talking too much and listening too little. The sun and Saturn turbo-boost work efforts. Venus and Pluto provide profundity.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's not what you thought it would be, and that's not a bad thing. Your expectation influences what happens next and stimulates your creativity as you imagine what could be.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In one scenario, you'll sort out the cause of your problem, and with the help of caring people, you'll get to the solution. In an alternate scenario, you'll be taught by trouble, and you'll resolve all with your own grit.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The difference between a place people live and a place people travel to is often scenery. Today you'll appreciate the loveliness around you to the same extent you would if you had saved up and gone on vacation just to see it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). One person's change always leads to other changes because the environment is like water; everything we do moves things for people around us.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll notice, nurture and acknowledge people's strengths in a way that makes them want to keep improving. If you're not a manager already, you should consider officially stepping into the role.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have no patience for hearing yourself talk just for the sake of talking. You want to feel that the communication benefits others somehow, if only with a feeling of being connected.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're putting in the work, not some days but every day. This is what will make the difference between accomplishment and really remarkable performance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're teaching yourself without realizing it. You're figuring out what needs to be done and doing it. Get only slightly more formal with this -- map out a curriculum to help you get to the goal -- and remarkable things will be possible.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It would be a mistake to go forward assuming the other person's expectations are the same as yours. You'll get to know who you are dealing with. It will allow you to maximize the experience for both of you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Relationships create their own culture. So while the environment has its rules, those will get superseded by the unspoken agreements developing between people.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your community is involved in a rivalry that you may not technically care about, though staying completely out of it is tantamount to antisocial behavior. This calls for a dance of diplomacy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone believes in his or her own correctness today, and this is a problem because almost no one is completely right. Neither are they completely wrong, though. Your talent for sorting gray areas will kick in.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 6). Life's surprises will delight you, coming just when you need the adrenaline rush. A lively involvement turns into a full-blown quest. The characters will change along the way, and you'll finally settle into the winning team arrangement at the start of 2020. The work you once avoided will be the source of great resources. Aquarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 49, 20, 18 and 1.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Take a moment to acknowledge the current state of relationships, as tomorrow brings new circumstances to adjust to. TAURUS: What was once an excited buzz will mellow into a real tone, and you'll be able to tell if it's a sound that pleases you or not. GEMINI: The truth you share will touch another and bring an emotional reaction. CANCER: There's nothing that energizes you more than meeting new people. Each one you meet is a potential adventure. LEO: Don't let your expectations get in the way of enjoying an event too quirky to have anticipated. VIRGO: You live and love forward and understand it fully later when you're looking backward. LIBRA: Make sure the other person likes you for what you're good at and not for a weakness. SCORPIO: Everyone involved doesn't have to be in full agreement in order to make a good team. SAGITTARIUS: Reason will be powerless in the poetry of love. CAPRICORN: There's a score to be evened, and a better relationship will follow the rebalancing. AQUARIUS: Understanding someone's capabilities will be crucial to loving the real person instead of the role you've cast. PISCES: You've a talent for keeping on the brighter side of life and thus making the people around you lighten up.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Capricorn and Virgo are Earth signs who don't need a whole lot of introductory conversation to know each other well. They've an intuitive sense about each other and can quickly get comfortable in each other's presence. Both prefer a style of love that can be identified through demonstration, in concrete examples and deeds instead of the declaration of feelings.
