The cosmic grace of the day comes courtesy of Mars and Neptune forming a lucky trine in water signs. Serendipitous meetings, keen instincts and/or sudden inspiration are included in the package. Unwrap without anticipation. Preconceived notions will only dampen the effect. Keep your mind open and your curiosity at the ready.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). What’s broken can be fixed, especially between people. Avoid saying, “Can I talk to you?” It only puts others on the defensive. Start the healing in your heart and your imagination.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Those who have prospered are quietly looking for someone with whom to share their good fortune. You’ll stand out, not because you are needy, but because you do so much with comparatively small resources.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is a big must-do item to top your to-do list. You might need a teacher for this one. Put the word out and the right person comes quickly to your aid.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your friendships are going strong and your love life is equally satisfying. This is a good moment. Breathe it in. When your relationships are good, so is your heart.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Get serious about your work. Avoid including people who are not technically qualified to assist you. You deserve a well-matched team. It will behoove you to be a bit picky.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A project you took on because it looked like fun now becomes a chore. Continue on anyhow because now someone needs you — that can be great motivation in and of itself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You realized by the age of 5 that making demands is not the most effective way to get what you want. Today you’ll be lucky when you go with slyly delivered suggestions instead. Charm accomplishes what force could not.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Tune into your body, especially where you’re holding onto stress. Your awareness of physical tension is the first step to releasing it. The more you can let go, the luckier you’ll be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Good things are happening. You may secretly wonder whether or not you’ve earned it. Don’t worry. Bad things have happened undeserved before, too. Trust the cosmic balance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may like someone immensely and still feel competitive with that person. Keep it in check and the complexity of feeling will make this an interesting and educational relationship.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have an instinct about what needs to happen next in this grand show. Since you see the big picture with clarity, tend to the broad strokes and let someone else do the detail work.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). These days, attention hogs are everywhere. Try not to give them too much focus and definitely don’t be one yourself. Your social grace will attract someone who can assist in your current project.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Ask for the moon this year and you may just get it. This month brings the money. September has you revamping relationships and communicating better. Buckle up in October for the wild ride you’ve been standing in line to go on. February fortifies your love life. March features you shining in the spotlight. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 20, 1, 22 and 50.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: “After being lost and confused for so many years, I feel that I have finally discovered what I really want to do as a career. I want to check with you and make sure that I am on the right track because this is such an important decision for me to make. I plan to pursue a career in the food industry. I’m going to take some cooking classes in Australia, gain some work experience there, and then open my own restaurant in the Philippines. Will I succeed in the food industry? I was born March 12, 1980.” Your Mars in Leo makes your career path strong even though, as a Pisces, you have a hard time making up your mind. Follow it with force, now that you’ve decided. Mars in Leo also means you’re a natural leader. The biggest problem you will have is being patient enough to know when you have gained proper experience. When you first feel like moving away, give yourself six more months. The extra time you spend in Australia will garner you valuable insights about human nature and our ever-changing palates.
