Got plans? Responsibilities? Big hopes for this last part of the year? Mars will bring us into the holiday season in Capricorn, a dynamic and forceful station for the warrior planet and just what we need to assist us through the intensity of the final stages of 2014. Assert your will. Energy and self-control will be there for the taking.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll lead with a question -- something you want to know about -- and you'll get deeply involved in finding the answer. This may not happen in one day. More likely, your question will kick off a long-term quest.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your confidence is on the rise, which makes you attractive. Your sense of certainty draws attention and supporters to you. There are many who will want to be involved in what you're doing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are feeling so independent these days that you will require very little outside reassurance or advice in order to do what you want to do. You can take care of yourself better than anyone else could, and you'll prove it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's amazing what gets lost when one's head is buried in the digital world. You'll make a point of engaging in natural beauty, face-to-face conversation and physical contact -- maybe even dancing!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll excel in (and be paid well for) a role that has you emphasizing and celebrating the positive. This may have to do with childrearing, teaching, event planning or sales.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). At times like these, you wonder and maybe feel slightly cynical about the true nature of love. However, there's a person you like so much that you may even feel he or she is necessary to your ultimate comfort.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If there are strings attached, the gift won't be worthwhile. Be wary of generosity from those who have a mixed reputation. As Shakespeare said, "Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind."
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Arm yourself with good stories, jokes and the like because the frustrated people of the world will be looking to you for help to rise above the circumstances in moments of human bonding.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your brain holds some memories in locked chambers, only to be undone by the key of absolutely needing to know. So explore gently, and trust that when you need to remember, you will.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This body of yours has carried you around in style, and it also has given you grief. You're learning to support its changes, listen to what it wants and accept what it can and can't do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Though you embrace the experimentation, trials and errors that come with learning, too many errors in a row can be demoralizing. That's why it's sometimes good to choose an easy game and let yourself enjoy the win.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). "There" is no better than "here," so it's a silly place to put your longing focus -- also, it diffuses your personal charisma to do so. What will it take for you to fall in love with "here"?
