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.
The very same day I made a promise to myself to never love again, I met the man I later married.
When we make the conscious decision to retract ourselves from love, we do not merely close ourselves off to others. We close ourselves off from within. We place a gray lens upon the frame through which we see all of life, diminishing every high and low into a muted apathy that renders most of life's worthwhile pursuits pointless.
It is a dreadful and lonely existence.
However, before I go hyping up the alternative, I'll say this: Love is hard. One moment it lifts you to soaring heights of euphoria; the next moment, it plummets you into a pit of despair deeper than any you've ever felt before. It is joy and anguish wrapped into one.
But, trust me on this one: life is better when it's shared.

there's more to love than romantic love. even when someone talks about a 'true love' it isn't always romantic. you can love anyone or anything, to not feel love would be a terrible thing, you wouldn't love your pets, your friends, your family. on one hand you won't get hurt, but on the other you wouldn't feel the joys of loving another. one of my favourite quotes [talking about the old 'tis better to of loved and lost than to of ever loved at all']
Well, he's acknowledging that if something makes you feel good, like being in love, there must be a corresponding painful side, like losing at love. It's just a fact of life. And what's intriguing about it is that no-one calls Tennyson a big unhappiness freak just because he understands that. He's a realist. He says that emotional involvement can bring pleasure *and* extraordinary pain. Then he declares that it's still better than never feeling anything at all.
if you wish to not feel romantic love, that's fine, it might show up at some point in your life, but it's not something you'll search for. [personally, that's the best way to find love] if you don't want to feel any type of emotional attachment, you'll life will be a hollow existence indeed. you'll shield yourself from pain, but you're preventing yourself from living. it's your life, and your choice, but don't jump into this without thinking if you're serious.
