Jupiter and Pluto Run the Lost and Found

Holiday Mathis on

When you feel yourself getting lost, stop asking questions. Questions put your mind in search mode. The Taurus moon angles Jupiter, and then Pluto to assist our grounding. Observe your surroundings and make statements, if only to yourself, affirming your known reality. The next best thing to being "found" is knowing about where you are.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). To think in terms that are overly profound is to push fun away from yourself. The good news is that getting the fun back is easy; it also happens to be the way to enlightenment -- lightening up.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll be conducting experiments today. You may feel like you're all over the place, but there's a great deal of cohesion in your actions because it's all coming from you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You do a job justice by embracing the planning phase of it. Take all the time you need. Then, when the actual events are upon you, you'll be cool, calm and collected, ever-confident that your vision is coming together.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You used to think of something as hard work and now you see it more like just part of making yourself into the person you want to be. Thinking about it this way is energizing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Solo goals should not be cake-sized. It will take you so long to eat the whole thing that by the time you get midway through, it will already be stale. Make your personal goals small as a cake pop and life will be sweet.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There's no one-size-fits-all route to success. Some learn the most through reading; others have to get elbow-deep into projects and really understand them from the ground level. You'll find your style and work it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you repeatedly try a thing and somehow it just keeps not working out, do you need persistence or change? Much depends on the feeling you get and the spirit of your attempts.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Once the work is out of your hands, it becomes a mirror in which your current standard of output is reflected. This is why it will be well worth the extra time it takes to double- and triple-check your work.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are unique, and the way you do things cannot be duplicated by anyone else. Sure, you could get a replacement to fill in, but it just wouldn't be the same. Your loved ones know this.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you know you don't care about something, what is it doing on your to-do list? Go through your various projects, possessions and responsibilities and determine what is relevant to who you are today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How are you talking to yourself these days? Self-talk is a behavior. It's hard to see it that way because it is not evidenced so clearly in action. And yet, to an astute and soulful observer, of course, it is.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Do not debate with yourself; rather, see what needs to be done and then jump in and start doing it immediately. Things either come together quickly, or you figure out they are not worth your time.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug.11). You care deeply, so you involve yourself deeply, but not with everything, only with things that are inherently meaningful and/or part of a larger mission. You'll gain fans of your work, which makes people's lives better. You'll turn attention into the means to spoil your family in some ways and give unforgettable experiences. Gemini and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 33, 59, 2 and 18.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: (Part Two) Addressing yesterday's question from a Virgo who keeps attracting the same type: "The type I keep going for is 'oblivious narcissist.' It always ends up in the same place -- with someone who is too self-involved to really get me."

The best way I know to attract people who "get you" is twofold. First, make it a point to really get yourself. Make a habit of honoring those parts of you that you want to be gotten. I'm willing to bet that, for whatever reason, you are not giving enough attention and airtime to those things you want acknowledged about you. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that the reasons you are doing this matter one bit. What matters is action. If you think there's something about you that should be acknowledged, be the first in line to do that.

Next, give the best of your attention to understanding who people are. Bring intense focus and boundless curiosity to listening, observing, testing and predicting another person. When you get extremely skilled at understanding people, you can no longer claim you were duped into loving another narcissist. Instead, you'll figure it out upfront and either go in willingly or not at all.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Chris Hemsworth has been tapped to play Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic of the legendary bodybuilder. Hemsworth is a fire-wielding Leo who took Hollywood by storm as the thermoblasting Norse god Thor, and he is booked solid with "Avengers" movies for years to come. Hemsworth's natal sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune are all in fire signs, a passion tempered by a strong Libran artistic influence.
