Opposition of the Sun and Pluto Some believe it's possible to meditate into spiritual evolution, though often it's when a person is not even focused on spiritual development when evolution is the most profound.

Spirit Moon The river of thought flows so deep and wide under the Pisces moon that it might be questioned whether it's really thought at all; there is something stronger than intellect pulling at us from the inside while pushing us magnetically forward.

Planetary Call for Protection


With the sun so close to Mars and squared to Uranus, it is quite possible that the greedy people will get their grabby hands into what doesn't belong to them. Unless you happen to be a saint, taking the high road probably won't be your first choice, but if you can manage it you'll avoid trouble and find an even better way of protecting what's yours.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If love is your school you will graduate with honors. When a relationship settles into a groove, don't be quick to call it a rut. Be proud of your perseverance and savor the comfort of getting along.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are times when being organized makes the difference between success and failure — not now. The world won't wait for you to process, sort and file, so just dive into the glorious mess. You'll discover treasure.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your friends will baffle you. The reason their actions don't make sense is that you don't have the full story. Be fine with that. You'll learn what you need to know in time. For now, just send your compassion.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll start a lively conversation — so lively that ending it may be a problem. This is the perfect excuse to collect contact info and make a new friend so the fun is to-be-continued...

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Everyone has a job to do today. You take yours seriously, and some of the others seem to think nothing of drifting off course with nothing to show for it. Your biggest challenge will be keeping your cool.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some things are important to do, and some things are nice to do. Your main problem today is that you believe that it's important to do what's nice to do, and therefore your to-do list is too full. There's always tomorrow.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are lots of solutions out there, but the right one for you may be uncommon. You're different from your loved ones, neighbors and colleagues. This is the ideal time to experiment and find what works for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One study suggested that the average person gets distracted over 30 times an hour. If you're testy with your interrupters it's because you pride yourself on being productive. Take measures to shut out the world for a while.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Stubbornness is for the young, the ignorant and the person who senses that the leader is an idiot. None of those applies to you today.

You'll comply with the orders so that when it's your turn, you'll lead with confidence.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one likes to get sucker-punched by life. And yet, everyone seems to like people who've had the experience and triumphed past it. If you're down, keep going in the knowledge that you truly will be better for it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Complicated people have a way of complicating even the simplest of tasks. Avoid them. Do this at the first red flag because it will be easy then. If you wait until red flag two or three, you'll be stuck.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even if you're feeling a little needy today, don't give into it. Make the effort to rise and shine and do your duty. Caring for others will be more fulfilling than letting them care for you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (JULY 7). Your solar return gifts you with the power to release an old pattern that no longer suits you. The love of family and friends will make you feel unstoppable. Events in the next 10 weeks open you to magic. You might even fall deeply in love. Wherever you go in October, revelry will follow you. Scorpio and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 47, 1, 28, 14 and 9.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "None of my lucky charms are working. I guess I need a new one. I used to carry a crystal. When that quit working I carried a rabbit's foot, but everyone commented on how cruel it was so I stopped. After that I put a lucky two-dollar bill in my wallet but one day I didn't have money for the parking garage and I had to use it. Can you suggest a lucky charm for me that will really work? I'm a Cancer."

A lucky charm is a highly personal item. Part of what gives it luck is that you like it so much you are willing to stick by it and infuse it with your best wishes and visions of your desired future. You've "broken up" with quite a few charms now so I challenge you to marry one. Take a vow to stick together in good fortune and bad. When things don't go your way, use your charm as a kind of reset button. Hold it and think about the lesson you learned and the new way you want to be going forward. Charms to consider for a water sign such as yourself: Pearl, coral, mother of pearl or silver.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ringo Starr's latest album "Postcards from Paradise" is his 18th studio album (and counting)! When the Cancer musician is not touring the world with his All Star band, he's putting together photography books and exhibitions, saving rhinos and the like. The Cancer star was born when Venus was in sociable, witty Gemini and four other luminaries were in entertaining Leo.
