While it takes a strong physical body to lift heavy objects, it takes a strong emotional body to do the heavy lifting of weightier emotions such as grief, sadness, fear and anger. Often, the person handling this job with grace goes unsung. The soulful Scorpio sun and harmonious Aquarius moon offer up just the right song.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You remember difficult times, who helped you out of them and who put you in them. Where it gets really complicated is when both categories point to the same person. You're still figuring out how to place your trust. Take your time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Science has proven via brain scans that it actually gives people pleasure to be nice. So let someone be nice to you without feeling guilty or moving to immediately repay the favor. Relax and let the pleasure sink in for all.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've changed. It was that book you read, that friend you hung out with, that food you started eating regularly. One of those things changed you — no, all of them did — which inspires you to keep choosing excellent influences.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The information you receive will have many levels. It may be only mildly interesting or useful until you get a little deeper. Seek clarity. A good teacher won't mind when you ask for specifics.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The project is getting costly and taking a lot longer than you thought it would. You're starting to wonder if it's worth what you're putting in. Don't worry. A hefty return on investment will come once you finish the work and clear the path.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're better at compartmentalizing than most, and this has allowed you to keep going and reap the benefits of perseverance. Now it's time to get back into some of those "compartments" and remember what you stowed there.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don't get overly concerned about how you're coming off around people who already know you. It's how you make them feel about themselves that matters. Your image plays but a minor and indirect role in this.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). All that you've done has been for particular reasons. They were the best decisions you could make given what you had to work with, and you've had many good results. Commit to learning more and trust yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To be truly effective in carrying the mantle of leadership, you have to model the program you represent. Walk it, talk it, live it. People will follow you not because of what you represent but because of who you are.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Those who badly fear mistakes will only take the safest actions, bringing as little of themselves as possible to the task. A tolerance for mistakes will bring the best outcome.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What if the power of a person were measured in joy? What would you do to get happier and simultaneously more influential over your world? Whatever it is, put it at the top of your list.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You would think that if each person took 50 percent responsibility for an outcome, then the task would be covered. But it won't work that way. If it fails, they can blame each other. Each person has to take 100 percent of the responsibility.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 14). Relationships improve across the board. It's not that they were ailing, but they become more helpful, communicative, comfortable and fun. This touches every part of your life. Other highlights in the months to come include home improvements, an once-in-a-lifetime encounter and a free pass when you need it. Libra and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 30, 12, 47 and 9.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "What advice do you have for a Pisces who feels tired all of the time? I feel emotionally drained by life, even when it's not particularly stressful. I'm exhausted when there's nothing going on, so I can't imagine how I'd be if I actually had to work a full-time job and juggle the things that others handle. I've been to the doctor and had all kinds of tests, and several doctors have suggested that nothing is physically wrong with me. What do you think?"

It's two things. First, Pisces like you are very impressionable and can easily be drained by negative people around you — or worse, people who enable you to be lazy. If there are sick, worried, bored, listless, disinterested or depressed individuals in your vicinity, you need to leave. And if someone is making it comfortable for you to have no goals, plans or challenge in life, you also need to get away. Get exercise daily — the more rigorous the better. It will not drain you; it will energize you. Maybe not at first, but keep with it and you'll soon be amazed at how different you feel. Likewise, a challenging goal will actually give you new vitality. You stronger and abler than you think.
