When caught outside in a lightning storm, the safest place to go is inside a car. If struck, the car might not fare so well, but the person inside will likely be fine. Which do you most identify with as Mars, the planet of intense, electric action, reverses direction? Are you the storm? The lightning? The car? Or are you just someone looking for shelter?
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know what you need to do. Sure, you're scared. It's pretty simple actually, and though it might take 30 words to say this, it all boils down to three -- you've got this.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What is the difference between a burden and a crutch? How you use it. The actual item (habit, person) could be the same in either case, but your use of it will make all the difference.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The distractions could get expensive and are best avoided entirely. You have a sense of where you're supposed to be, and it's a productive day so long as you stick to your course.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone loves you. For this person, it's like you're there even when you're not there because your influence is constantly considered. Does knowing this make you feel like you need to be a little more careful with your input?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The cardinal typically lives three years in the wild and can survive for decades in captivity. Happily? Scientists do not test for that part. As for you, bright bursts of happiness, over in seconds, will be remembered for years.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is possible to improve almost anything, and it's done through the development of your senses. Senses get keener with experience. Awareness opens up with each new experience.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's a time for pure fun and a time to feel the gravity that keeps us from flying off the face of the planet. Sure, it causes things we don't like -- falls, sagging, teardrops and so much work, and yet, no gravity means no life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Bad manners are often just a lack of training or a difference in background. You will not be sorry for displaying tolerance and reserving judgment until you really understand the person and the factors at play.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be aware of what you make important with your focus and time. You don't have to agree to the same reality other people are experiencing. See it differently and, like magic, it is different.
