Taurus/Taurus Rising* (Apr 20-May 21): You don't mind a little loudness, if the person has brains to match his or her volume. You are certainly a believer in silence as a reason to be thought smarter than one may actually be. Your increased awareness of all things metaphysical has brought you a more meaningful life. It's odd and quirky, but you have a way of making sense out of the nonsensical (or ignoring it altogether), and a Water Dragon is anything but rational. Use your joy to act as the dimmer switch that moves between having all the illumination to being in darkness. Huh? Psychological dark Pluto spreads his profound spirit through compatibly earthy Capricorn, giving you an ability to see beyond the physical plane you're so fond of. Combined with the Chinese Year of the Water Dragon, you possess the future right in your hands. You must spend your time and AOE on getting beyond only what you can see or prove through your five senses. The AOE increases the month before and after your birthday from 6.5 to 8.5. It will be difficult to realize how your values are transforming without your knowing why. The intangible planes of existence do not operate from logic only.
Gemini/Gemini Rising* (May 21-Jun 20): Adaptable signs (Virgo, Sag and the fish are the others) move between extremes of the element they have. The air element, at its logical ends, gives us the paranoid and antisocial to the morbidly quiet and superficial. This Water Dragon Year of 2012 has the makings of creating a collective spirit of combining your scintillating intellect to your incredible imaginative feelings. Your AOE contracts in late winter in order to help you focus on your future with your friends and colleagues. You do not want to move through the world alone; you need siblings, cousins and neighbors with whom to connect. When you isolate yourself (even while hanging out and showing the expected or appropriate face), we all lose and your AOE hovers between a 7 and 8.5. When you use your powers of observation and then communicate precisely what you desire and expect, your AOE drops to a cool-as-a-cucumber 6.
Cancer/Cancer Rising* (Jun 21-July 21): As we move from the end of a Metal Rabbit Year to a Water Dragon year through Chinese astrology, you mutate into an eccentric and composite animal spirit. In 2011, you suffered from too much Moon, that is, being overly feeling and drawn to your past. You have an exceptional affinity to this year in Chinese astrology. When you are balanced and poised beyond Republican Southern strategy and/or your family's prejudices, you become this planetary citizen, seeing all humans as your extended family. You obtain the blessings and good fortune of all who sense your real sense of goodwill. Aquarius time of year takes your Hansel and Gretel self into your own psychological underworld. That's where the dragon gives you some amazing resistance to the coefficient drag (symbolically speaking, your airplane can fly anywhere you have the will and the plane has the fuel). Your AOE treads some Caribbean waters at a 7. Too low a number, you get complacent, similar to not enough regulation to our nation's polluters.
Leo/Leo Rising* (July 22-Aug 22): Return to my message to you last week, as this is a continuance. Oh, go on, be the loyal spirit to me that I know you are. No fronting. Now, where you can appear less than fully authentic is through counting your blessings. There is no need to wear your spiritual heart on your sleeve, unless it is your heart that burned off the nasty dross like junk off gold. Think, fellow Leo Denver quarterback Tim Tebow, the son of Christian missionaries, are you on bowed (tee-bowed, oh, hell) knee? Dragon years tend to be easy for you. Openhearted, sincere and joyously extending your spirit, you can use the inventiveness of this year to connect the professionally friendly dots. In essence, spending your inspirational focus upon using any defensive projections leaves us all earthbound. Please realize that dragons must fall to Earth if they become tone-deaf to our shared humanity. Please use your AOE (flaming in at a solid 6) to inspire us to become more responsible for making our world a better place. Imagine Marvin Gaye singing "Mercy, Mercy" or "What's Going On?" What do the lyrics suggest you do?
