Venus in Leo Loves a Grand Entrance

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's rare that jewels and gold are just sitting out in plain view. You usually have to mine dark places to get to the riches. If you want the good stuff badly enough, you'll put on your hard hat and brave the unknown.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Try not to compare yourself to others right now because what they are doing is irrelevant to your situation. If you can stick to your own scene for a few hours of deep focus, you'll have a remarkable breakthrough.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A promising business arrangement will be featured. Many factors must align for this potential to be realized, though, so exercise impulse control. Take your time with the decision.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 7). Like a champion, you'll surf an epic wave of activity in your personal life. The height, speed and risk factor you're riding here will be a rush. The turn of the year brings a welcome lull. Focus on setting up your professional and financial picture for a series of opportunities that come every two weeks in February and March. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 33, 27 and 15.

ON FEEDING WOLVES: "In my addiction therapy, I learned the story about two wolves in a constant fight, one of love and light, the other of hate and despair. The child asks his grandfather, 'Which one wins?' and the grandfather says, 'The one you feed.' ?I'm an Aquarius who cannot seem to feed the right wolf."

"The one you feed" is a classic though confusing duality story told by someone who doesn't know wolves.

There are no good wolves or bad wolves. There are just wolves being wolves.


Wolves don't want food from you; they want to feed ON you. If you meet a wolf in the wild, or the wilderness inside you, you are not the one with choices. Do what you can to stay alive. Generally, the wolves win.

Addictions are coping mechanisms, and effective ones, or you wouldn't continue to choose them. It might help you to step out of the realm of good versus evil, which will always produce conflict, and into a quest to understand what purpose your actions serve, so you can choose healthier actions to speak to that need.

Use your brilliant Aquarian imagination to build your own story about who you are and the things you do daily to fortify the strongest, smartest, cleverest parts of yourself so that when the wolves come sniffing, you're ready with tricks that only a human could come up with.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In the HBO series "Westworld," Evan Rachel Wood plays a sentient android with motives possibly anti-human. In real life, she shows her pro-human stance in a number of ways befitting a nurturing Virgo, including motherhood and political activism. Wood wrote The Phoenix Act, a domestic violence bill that was signed into law, extending the statute of limitations on domestic violence felonies.
