Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you have a deep realization of how your health is affected by your thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. And you are right. They are! The mind and body are very connected. (Mine are connected under my left armpit.) Appreciate who you are and what you have.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you might have a deep appreciation of art, beauty and ideas. You might realize that you are happier through your participation in sports events, physical exercise, dealing with children and socializing with loved ones. Many people are zoning out on profound ideas today. It’s trippy!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you are concerned with deeper issues. This concern could be reflected in your daily conversations with relatives, neighbors and siblings. (It’s a Pluto thang.) However, this same influence can make you obsessed about something. Oh yeah.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might learn something new and meaningful about how to use your money or your assets to get a better result in your life or get a better result in someone else’s life. Mercury is dancing with Pluto. Mercury is all about thoughts and ideas. Pluto wants to change the world.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might be obsessed with an idea today. However, you might also have excellent powers of concentration if you need to focus on something. It’s a good day to “look inside” and think about who you are and whether or not this day would improve with an ice cream cone.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is an introspective day. You might want to go beneath the surface of things and discover the mystery of something. You might want to discover secrets. It’s also a good time to look at your inner thoughts and try to get a better understanding of who you are. (Easier said than done.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will be attracted to philosophical, psychological, religious and profound ideas today. At the very least, you will appreciate Spider-Man’s epiphany that, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Stuff like that. Heady conversations and smart people will appeal.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You want to get to the bottom of certain financial data today — especially related to shared property, taxes or inheritances. However, some of you will have this same curiosity about intimacy. (In astrology, sex and money are in the same part of anyone’s chart.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
