Rosie O’Donnell turns 50 on Wednesday. The lesbian comedian and talk show host recently invited actor Kirk Cameron to discuss his recent comments on gay rights on The Rosie Show on the Oprah Winfrey Network. She agreed to meet Cameron for dinner seeing as that may be a “better way to start rather than on TV,” she said in a video posted online.



The sun moving into Aries passes Mercury, retrograding into Pisces, and then goes on to conjoin Uranus. Egotistical ideas and smug certainty will be punctured. Let it go and laugh.


PISCES  Feb 19-Mar 19
Worries over money are not as important as they seem. The first ideas that come into your head are wrong, but if you figure out why, you can come up with something outrageously right.

ARIES  Mar 20-Apr 19
Arguments with your partner are more about your own worries, fears and doubts. Remember you two are on the same side. YYour top priority is to take care of your health.

TAURUS  Apr 20-May 20
You’re looking too good for your own good. An old fling may show up for an encore, but it’s just that. This is no time to start a new relationship or take for granted the one you have going.

GEMINI  May 21-Jun 20
Your ruler Mercury has you acting like Gracie Allen (she’s on YouTube). If you can capture her charm, keep your head on straight and keep a sense of humor, you’ll be ahead of the game.

CANCER  Jun 21-Jul 22
Spring starts with all eyes on you. You surprise everyone. Planning is important, even though plans go awry. Think ahead with contingencies, and be ready to improvise. Be alert, but relax.

LEO  Jul 23-Aug 22
The craziest ideas confronting you are the ones to entertain. The state of the world proves a lot of bright people have been wrong about important matters, so let go of old ideas.

VIRGO  Aug 23-Sep 22
Share your kinkiest fantasies with someone who can help them come true, unless it involves cheating on your partner. One of you is too sensitive, so handle issues respectfully.

LIBRA  Sep 23-Oct 22
Like it or not, Venus is shining the red light on you. Much fun? Perhaps. Just be very careful not to get into a relationship you’ll regret, or to lose one you value.

SCORPIO  Oct 23-Nov 21
Treat mixed messages with good humor. That doesn’t mean you should make fun of them. You’re probably as much at fault. Listen to your partner. The less you like it, the more you’ll benefit.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22-Dec 20
Guessing that your boss doesn’t know what he or she is doing, you could well be right, but pointing that out won’t help you at all. Stick to your own work the best you can.

CAPRICORN  Dec 21-Jan 19
The best way to avoid stupid arguments is to avoid people. Especially keep relatives at a safe distance. Your hyperactive brain needs some calming. Hide out and meditate.

AQUARIUS  Jan 20-Feb 18
Fess up and make it right your recent mistakes. With Mercury retrograding, everyone’s screwing up a bit these days. Being forthright and responsible will get you points.
