John Travolta turns 59 on Monday. A huge star after his early film Grease, he  returned to movie musicals playing a cross-dressing mother in 2007’s Hairspray, pictured. For much of his career, he has been dogged by rumors of being secretly gay.


AQUARIUS: Jan 21–Feb 20
There’s little relief in knowing that current troubles won’t require anything new from you. Whatever time it takes up won’t be enough to rob you of time for yourself, during which you need to cook up what’s next and set yourself free.

PISCES: Febr 21–Mar 20
A situation has gone beyond both experience and comprehension. I think they call this “The Big Stuff.” It is what it is; but underneath, whatever’s going on is blessing you with a chance to come to terms with what you could never see on your own.

ARIES: Mar 21–Apr 20
It would be great if you could back off and let life show you how it needs to go. Those of you who are less forceful in your methods will have an easier time tuning in to the winds of change and making the most of things that could turn your life around.

TAURUS: Apr 21–May 20
Whoever’s telling you whatever you want to hear hasn’t offered anything concrete to show you how much they care. Without it, you get the sense that you’re being used. Take a good look at what you’re getting out of this because it looks like you’re fed up and are just beginning to realize that it’s time to let go.

GEMINI: May 21–Jun 20
Your tendency to gloss things over isn’t working for you. If you’re smart, you’ll relax when it comes to making too many commitments and wait to see how people react when they don’t get an immediate ‘yes’ from you. Too much is on the line for you to risk it. Don’t misplace your trust.

CANCER: Jun 21–Jul 20
Before you can get on with the show, the truth has to come out. The last thing you want to do is hurt people, so find a way to say or do whatever you’ve got to without blowing too many minds. You can’t go on in this condition.

LEO: Jul 21–Aug 20
Life is heating up in ways that are making it easy to get lost in superficial issues. None of those issues will be resolved if you get too wrapped up in the drama to remember to stay centered and grounded enough to remain objective to it all.

VIRGO: Aug 21–Sep 20
The only thing that matters right now is where you decide to place your trust and the extent to which you understand we are living in a time when love has to be the guiding principle in everything we do. Seen from that POV, your choices are clear.

LIBRA: Sep 21–Oct 20
You stopped asking questions a while back and are living with the consequences of whatever you thought you knew the answer to. The good news is you’re about to come to terms with the truth and reclaim the things that matter most to you.

SCORPIO: Oct 21–Nov 20
Ask yourself what you want out of your current status. Others will respond, or not, to the extent that they are able. Until that happens, you need time and space to sort things out, reclaim your power and connect with your strength.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov 21–Dec 20
Depending on your rate of recuperation, it could take a month to remember what you’re here for. Something new is definitely waiting. It seems to be wrapped in an opportunity that you can only connect with in another set of coordinates.

CAPRICORN: Dec 21-Jan 20
It looks like you’re about to crack the code that will allow you to take the best of both worlds and make something new and beautiful with whats in place. How that works is up to you.
