Happy birthday (Oct. 4): With the sun revitalizing your life force, this year shows you living with intention. You do not exist to fulfill requirements or take on the role you're given; rather, you decide what to strive for and define the part you'll play.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make lists. It will force your thoughts into neat lines and make your work much easier. Plus, seeing items on paper will help you order them into the two main categories: things you can control and things you can't.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You're talking to yourself in a certain manner. Sometimes you're aware of it and sometimes you're not. There's one message that isn't helping at all. With awareness, you'll change it, altering your destiny.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Truth and facts are not the same thing. Facts can be checked. Truth, being highly personal and philosophical, is challenging to verify. Be careful not to get too hung up on facts today because truth will matter more.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You accept that challenge is a part of life and when the time comes, you welcome and engage with it. But today you won't have to. What you thought would be a challenge will instead come unexpectedly easily to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your brain tries to save you time and energy by summing things up so you can make a fast decision. But today, a snap judgment won't help. Everything important is in the nuances. Slow down and you'll catch something important.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may not realize it, but those on the outside see you as a member of the clique. You'll be inclined toward graciousness, which, in this case, means making a conscious effort to reach out and include others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): People who have made mistakes and been forgiven have a bigger love to give than those with a more direct path to success. Having required and received compassion, they can now do the same for others. Who does this describe?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The difference between dishing the dirt and mudslinging is only a few drops of water. It's a good time to avoid the seduction of gossip entirely and stay away from the forums where it proliferates.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Some metals become magnetic just by hanging out long enough with other magnets. Similarly, people who are together a lot will pick up one another's qualities. Magical and attractive energy zings around your group now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Though you thought you wanted something, in a moment of honesty you may realize that down deep you are for some reason resistant to having it. Consider this a breakthrough. It will help you home in on the right desire for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It would be an understatement to say you've changed. At this point you wouldn't be surprised if your DNA reflected the change too. You believe in magical transformation, but most of yours has come about from daily work.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Nobody will charge your battery for you; you have to do it yourself. It's time for a different charging station because the old one is drained. Finding your best fuel will be a little challenging, but it's a fun thing to figure out.
BUILDING BEAUTY BY THE MOON
Projects require time and space. The moon in Aquarius, the sign of the future, reminds us that physical space changes intellectual space and vice versa. Thoughts get jostled to make room for the new. Beautiful things come into being because people have the courage to rearrange their mental furniture to make room for the build.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: As the daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, Dakota Johnson has a show business lineage though Leo, the sign of entertainment is nowhere in her natal chart. Instead, the actress has the notable sun and Mars in Libra, the sign of art and relationships, suggesting she’s more interested in reaching an artistic ideal than she is with being in a spotlight. She will explore this interest in the upcoming “Daddio” with Sean Penn.
