Sun Settles an Argument

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's something you want to know. You could take a class. You could read up. Or you could just jump in. If the process is left to trial and error, most of the learning will come from error.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). These independent issues you're dealing with may actually be more connected than you realize. Look for patterns, with a keen eye to that old classic "cause and effect."

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As you take care of yourself, you are taking care of all the people who love you, the ones who depend on you, and even ones you don't know but with whom you happen to share a community.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 3). Commitment is your forte this year. You'll put your money where your heart is, your muscle where your head is, your whole self where your values are -- no wonder you keep winning. Instincts land you in lucky places. You'll make a deal and get a lifelong friend and/or partner out of it. You'll accept a generous gift in November. Cancer and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 29, 42, 24 and 11.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I don't understand why I'm not being promoted at work. I'm an empath with a high level of emotional intelligence (if I do say so myself -- ha!), and I have been repeatedly praised for my ability to help my team work smoothly. I'm the one they go to when situations need to be smoothed over. I provide a safe space, am a good communicator and am generally well-liked. Please tell me why an empathic Pisces keeps getting passed over."

 

Ask yourself objectively what it would take to be seen as a producer in the company. What are the outcomes that would need to materialize? Get to the hard numbers. What would your department have to look like for you to be the undeniable choice for promotion?

Culture is vitally important in any team, as is a healthy, safe, nurturing work environment. You can likely have this and produce the superstar results you need to in order to move up. Just don't confuse it with productivity. Also, note that emotional intelligence isn't always about making everything smooth for all. Sometimes conflict is necessary, and bringing simmering issues to the surface goes to the core of effective management.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Congratulations to new father Anderson Cooper, who welcomed his son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, into the world on April 27. The author and television personality could be the poster star for Gemini intellect: bright, wide-ranging and charismatically conveyed. Cooper's moon and Saturn in Aries show the fiery spirit necessary to ask the hard questions, go to the dangerous places and live a public life.
