AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
What we watch on tv is so sereal even i get my thoughts on such a situation mixed up.how can we live with such a moving thought as to how we have evolved so quickley we need to have an open mind to the idea of the evolution of the mind.

slightly confusing post, but if i understand you correctly you feel that tv effects us more than it should? indeed it does, although now a days internet does more than tv, but you are correct, a good chunk of the population get their information from media and not research. and by media, i mean movies, games, websites and tv excluding new reports. people today prefer not to read, or read as little as possible. [hence the word count in youtube]
it's a long argument really, now it's games, before it was tv, before that radio. it's not the mediums fault, people today like C.S.I. so they gave us Criminal Minds, Dexter and so on. people like Zombies so we get The Walking Dead, Shawn of the Dead, and so forth. it's the media to give the mass what we want, the older generation to govern the younger. don't blame tv when your kid gets nightmares, as a parent you should of made sure they didn't watch Cujo.
another side point marketing, people are paid billions to know what will work for a group of people to buy their product. next time you watch tv, don't mute the commercials, watch them. the commercials aimed at men will have half naked woman drooling over a guy who's using their product, the commercials for woman will show how the house will smell nicer or be cleaned sooner with their product. [sexist but effective] even toys for boys vs girls. girl's commercials are brighter, have a soft spoken woman talking about all the magical adventures you and your new friend will have. boys toys are dark with a deep voiced guy talking about how you can destroy stuff, beat up the bad guy and save the day.
or perhaps you mean how with all our technology there are still close minded people? again this comes down to upbringing and exposure as they grew up. [American History X is a good example to see] i know of plenty of devout Christians who don't have a tv, or if they do, they don't have cable. while this is a good thing since they spend a lot of time outside, using their imagination, and not being exposed to negative media, it also shelters them from other opinions. if i was a parent i would monitor what my kid saw because it might effect them in a negative light, teach them bad things, i'm not going to take away tv because of the risk of them being exposed to other religions or ways of thinking. in most cases closed mindedness is a result of upbringing, not someone waking up one day and saying 'i hate minorities'. it's a deep set thought pattern that is hard to break out of simply by saying 'it's 2012 that's wrong'. i'm sure you could come up with examples in your own life for a taught response. i noticed a while back when i get a snack, say coolies, i grab 3. i was asked by my friends kid why i do that, because i would give him a snack with 3 cookies or 3 carrot sticks. i thought about it, as a kid my mom would put 3 cookies in my lunch, at day camp when they brought out the snacks, i would get 3 cookies, or 3 celery sticks, 3 carrot sticks, and so on. just picked it up that a snack should have 3 something.
hopefully i understood your comment and didn't just go off on a pointless tangent lol. i studied sociology in high school, fist time i've been able to talk about it since then really lol.
