The Sagittarian solar crossing is a lucky omen even on Friday the 13th. The Taurus moon has us satisfying appetites of all varieties without the impediment of misfortune. If there is one area in which we are unlucky, it’s in knowing when to stop. Self-control and regulating systems are needed to avoid eating, drinking and spending in excess.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is nothing inherently wonderful, but because you have wonder inside of you, you’ll bring it to the world, and its majestic curtains will open before you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re on the hunt for one specific thing, and this purpose will lead you through the day. When you see what you need, go after it. Hesitation only prolongs the inevitable.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A blunt approach often will bring direct results, but in the long term, it won’t improve a reputation the way finesse does. The one with the best manners will win today’s prize opportunity.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People who are acting out of obligation or habit will say the same thing they said last time, but you won’t respond in the same way. This is proof that you’re present, in the moment, bringing your full fresh energy to the scene.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You accept yourself whether or not you are fitting in with the people around you. And they will accept you, too. They were getting pretty bored with the status quo anyhow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The areas in which you prosper now are the very same ones that caused you suffering only a few years ago. Remember this, and be untroubled. The issue that plagues you soon will pass.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s a difference between observing and passing judgment. You’ll stay objective most of the day, but by nightfall you may decide you’ve seen enough of other people’s lives to make you love your own even more.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don’t have to accept the mythology of others as the only storytelling that matters. Create your own mythology. Someone will be helped by your stories.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know that often it’s the people who are the hardest to love who need love the most. But why does it always seem to be your job to love the unlovable? Answer: Because you’re so good at it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It is said that being kind is better than being right, but what if you’re in charge of teaching others? The kind way will seem to take longer, while the right way, bluntly delivered, cuts to the quick.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The emphasis is on family, and you’ll be curious as to your family history, so just ask. They want to tell their story, and even if it doesn’t seem to be about you directly, it is all a part of who you are.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A relationship is progressing to the point where you think you know each other well – maybe too well. Close that open book, and build some mystery back into the equation.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll be someone’s hero this year in big and small ways. Next month, you’ll complete a responsibility and launch into a new adventure. A benefactor will provide you with funding and help with travel. March features a thrilling partnership. Justice prevails in April, so make sure you’re on the right side. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 2, 22, 34 and 14.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll keep projecting a confident manner of communication regardless of how you really feel. It works for you. TAURUS: Emotional equilibrium can only be achieved by someone who understands that everything changes. GEMINI: Don’t try to explain or impress. It’s not fun. CANCER: If you keep it light and playful, the arguing you do with a loved one will bring you closer. LEO: Through the written word, you can pour your soul into the soul of another. VIRGO: Music says what mere words, and mere silence, could not. LIBRA: Love without ambition isn’t exciting enough for you now. You want to be able to see a brighter future in your love. SCORPIO: For a better relationship all around, you only need to focus on one small improvement. SAGITTARIUS: You don’t want what you think you want. Look at your actions. They point to what you really want. CAPRICORN: The person you are interested in is looking for entertainment, amusement and laughter. Supply that, and you’re in. AQUARIUS: Being around a person daily sets up the right conditions for falling in love. PISCES: Your loved one sees himself or herself very differently from the way you see him or her.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: When the Sagittarius sun reflects off of the Taurus moon, these two signs notice each other’s merits like they didn’t before. Sagittarius has a confidence that convinces Taurus (not usually so easily won) that they could very well conquer the world together. Taurus has the discerning taste that will guide the Sagittarius path toward richer and ever more pleasant places.
