Mercury Moves on Expectations
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Transformation is the name of the game today. The growth of others can be inspiring, painful and all around fascinating to watch. Part of you changes right along with the process.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If cooperation is forced, it's not cooperation; it's control. You'll be keenly tuned in to people's reactions to the circumstances. You'll steer all toward empowering options.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Accountability is the magic ingredient that will make your plan come to life. Put your system in place. The simple act of telling your goals to someone could be enough of a system to keep you on track.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 28). Your solar year will be rich in karmic exchanges. You'll pay back a debt -- the sweetest relief! Later you will pay forward a kindness, which will bring deep satisfaction. So many varieties of love will run through your heart, and you'll need an outlet for celebrating this expression of joy in your life. Music could be the ticket. Leo and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 12, 3, 33 and 16.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I have fallen out of favor with my husband's family. I didn't cheat on my husband, borrow money or make some thoughtless social mistake. Here's what I did: I gained weight. In his family, you can commit a lot of sins -- be a thief, a drug addict or an adulterer, even -- as long as you don't do something as unthinkably evil as gain pounds. Did I say that they are vain and shallow? I can't stand the fact that they are burning up the phone lines talking about how despicably huge I've become. What advice do you have for a Sagittarius who wants to lose weight?"
Dreadful! But forget about them. What do you want? With your gregarious and others-focused sign, I'm guessing you care more about taking care of the people around you and tending to the moment than you do about embodying a particular kind of figure. Furthermore, Sagittarius, the sign of expansion, doesn't like making cutbacks. Your best bet is to think in terms of what you're adding to your life by getting healthy. Add exercise that's fun and that you'll look forward to. Add healthy new recipes and a commitment to making yourself happy in ways beyond eating.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Grammy Award-winning artist Colbie Caillat has made records precisely the way she wants to on her label, PlummyLou Records. The Gemini trendsetter is a poster girl for healthy choices. She maintains a meatless diet even when she's touring the world and living out of a suitcase. Caillat's Virgo moon is a moon of discipline, nutrition, neatness, organization and health. Mercury in Taurus favors a down-to-earth style of communication.
