FEBRUARY 2018

ASTRO ADVICE MONTHLY 

StarScoop: British actor Damian Lewis, born on Feb. 11, 1971, has quite the roster of achievements in the entertainment world, but the character he plays in “Billions,” Bobby Axelrod, is what captured my attention.

Turns out, he’s quite the guy off-camera as well. Smart, sensitive and steady are a few of his stellar qualities. To top it off, he’s married to the talented Helen McCrory, another one of Britain’s entertainment treasures. Polar opposites, well-suited but not the match you’d expect, Lewis and McCrory are clever enough to know that relationships take work and there is no room for jealousy when you live under a media microscope.

With transiting Jupiter moving through Scorpio (another fixed sign), they will both be facing a transit that will call for restraint, moderation and patience. They will both be so busy that they’ll have to be tolerant of long hours, travel and time apart. Apparently it’s something they have faced since day one, when they fell in love playing opposite each other in “Five Gold Rings” — a live production that turned out better for both personally than it did professionally.

I don’t know about you, but I’d sure like to see the two of them on the big screen in the not-too-distant future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Formulate plans, make sure they are realistic and start the process of turning your dream into something tangible. Your energy and enthusiasm will lead to opportunity and rewards.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your life and your relationships simple; focus on moderation and getting ahead financially. Don’t pay for someone else’s mistakes or let anyone take advantage of you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep your story straight and focus on achievement. Past problems will surface and should be put to rest quickly. Don’t let an emotional incident interfere with your professional goals.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Personal growth and awareness should be your target. Dig deep and you’ll discover how to make your life better. Expand your vision and be more tolerant of others.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expressing how you feel about money matters, settlements and contracts that need to be adjusted will help you come to a workable agreement. Cut your losses and move on.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do your own thing and handle your affairs personally. Anger solves nothing, but doing what you can to stabilize a situation will help you achieve peace of mind.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel to unfamiliar places and aspire to be more innovative. You can make new connections and positive changes as long as you avoid going over budget, indulgence and overreacting.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look for a creative outlet to take your mind off any controversy you face. Listen, but don’t let anyone sway you to do things that don’t suit you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of your health through proper diet and fitness, and put more effort into important relationships. How you respond to others will influence how much you accomplish.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Use the process of elimination when trying to make a decision. Don’t follow the crowd or expect things to turn out without your undivided attention.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Size down or find a way to cut back. Moderation will be necessary mentally, emotionally, physically and financially if you want to maintain your current standard of living.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keeping secrets will help initially, but when the truth comes out you will regret past mistakes and the loss of those you blamed. Make amends and move forward.
