A Homecoming for Venus

Holiday Mathis on

Astrologically, this is the busiest day we've had in months, with nine aspects of note competing for the headline. The conjunction of Mercury and Neptune gets honorable mention for helping us articulate our dreams. Five different squares get the drama award. The homecoming of Venus in sensual Taurus takes the title -- a mood shift for love that comes with a temptation to eat our way through today's tension.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's OK to be vulnerable. To some extent it is what anyone planning on connecting with another human being must be. While we would like to be seen as self-sufficient, smooth and mighty, vulnerability is human connection glue.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will train your brain to think different thoughts. It's not easy, but neither is lifting weights or any other training that makes a difference in you. You'll improve your mind the same way you've improved so many other things -- through repetition.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've a vague feeling that you want something, but until someone asks the question, you're not exactly clear on what it is. In case no one has asked, here it is from the universe: how can I help?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll see great potential in something or someone today. It's as though you're a sculptor sitting down to a particularly malleable lump of clay. Your vision is exciting, though only possible to realize if the lump of clay also sees it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will tease out the good parts of a situation. This takes optimism and a bit of forgiveness too because you can't concentrate on making the most of things if you're focused on the recent mistakes. This can still work. Keep moving.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You assume things about yourself that may be true, may have been true at one time or may never have been true and still aren't. Test your assumptions. Ask "How can I be certain?" Ask trusted others for their thoughts too.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even though this turn of events feels new to you, you're not the only one who has taken the ride. Sharing experiences will be either fun, informative, healing, fascinating or all of the above.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Manage the temptation to jump in and solve every problem. Many of these issues are symptoms of something deeper at the heart of things. If you had to guess what the real challenge is here, what would you home in on?


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you start over with the hope of doing it better the next time, there's a risk it could actually get worse. It will help to get other opinions about this learning curve. Find out what you're in for before you decide whether it's worth your time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll invest in your optimism. In the words of an ancient Roman poet, "Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish." -- Ovid

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because you understand the difference between wants and needs, you realize that some amounts of things like recreation and affection are not frivolous desires that will fade, but actual basic needs to address, or there will be consequences.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If people aren't sure about a situation, they will often default to reading it as unsafe and back away. Knowing this, you do everything you can to convey signals of safety and welcoming without seeming like you're trying too hard to prove this point.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 16). Once the opportunities start coming, they come fast and often. Welcome to your year of readiness! You'll do what it takes to stay ready so that you won't have to get ready. Physical self-care and an improved mindset come from time with positive influences and encouragement from key relationships. You'll keep moving until you're surrounded by those who help you be successful. Cancer and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 44, 14, 5 and 7.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pisces Lauren Graham showed the musical side of her on "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist" and her vampire side on "Vampirina". But it was her maternal side that first captured the love of a wide audience as Lorelai Gilmore on the perennially popular "Gilmore Girls," a series that launched many careers: Melissa McCarthy, Nick Offerman, Jane Lynch and Jon Hamm to name a few. With lucky Jupiter in maternal Cancer, it's fitting that Graham's breakout role was playing a mother.
