The Scorpio moon invites you to relax into your connection with loved ones. Your relationships are not really based on the conversations you’ve had, the circumstances you’ve endured together or the shared adventures. They are forged with feelings woven together to create bonds beyond words or circumstances.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The difference between laziness and efficiency may be intention. The outcome is the same: a manner of doing things that expends less energy, takes less time and frees you up for more enjoyable exploits.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People might not understand you, but your ideas are brilliant. You are speaking to issues that for most people are too far into the future to be concerned with just yet.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Self-reliance is a cornerstone of your belief system. Fully being yourself takes great effort and will not be rewarded by the world. It is its own reward.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you were a child at the treat table, you felt inclined to load your plate with more of life’s sweetness than you needed. Now that you’re older, you know to take what you’ll actually use. Teach the younger ones.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are loyal and will speak of those who are not present the same way you would if they were in the room. When other people’s talk makes you uncomfortable, offer a mild excuse and leave.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s one of the oldest tricks in your emotional bag: You smile when you’re not happy, and a smidgeon of happiness bubbles up to the surface eager to proliferate with the slightest provocation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). For as long as you give your undivided attention, you make someone feel like he or she is the only person in the world. This quality of attention is a valuable commodity that is quickly disappearing in this atmosphere of distraction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Saying “yes” opens the way to connection. Instead of saying “no” to what’s being offered, say “yes” to a new offering of your own creation. Be an agreeable solution- and option-oriented person.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll fearlessly regard both the known and the unknown. Familiar things and strange things will meld together to provide you with an interesting experience.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t know how you’re going to get it all in, but you will. You won’t rest until you’ve tackled that list of all that needs doing before the year is up.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will have the opportunity to repair an alliance. Like most opportunities, this one requires faith and some initiative. It won’t look like an opportunity unless you know it’s there, and then it’s hard to miss.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No matter how hard they try to fake it, unless they are amazing actors, everyone usually can tell when a couple isn’t getting along. You’ll be the diplomatic one that helps to smooth over a rocky situation.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Even as you strive to improve this year, loved ones celebrate and love you “as is.” Next month brings a financial breakthrough. If you look for romance in February, you’ll find it. A restructuring of your daily schedule in spring will bring about a long-desired change and a surge of self-esteem. You’ll move in June. Aquarius and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 2, 22 18 and 40.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Do you think I could be a guru? I feel like I know things, and I would like to share. I do some counseling, and some even have called me a mystic. Is this something that’s in my stars? My birthday is 3/4/1977.”
Your sun and communication planet Mercury in Pisces, the ethereal sign of old souls, suggests that you feel, communicate and resonate in mystical ways. You do know things beyond ordinary understanding, and you have extrasensory talents. However, wanting to be a guru or a mystic is a sure sign that you are not ready to be one. “Guru” and “mystic” are not job titles. You don’t study, gain certifications and apply for employment. The only way you can earn the role is to be cast into it by your student or by someone who feels moved and changed by what you do.
If you truly think you have something worth sharing, humble yourself and be of service to those who need to know. Let go of your own need for recognition, as it is out of alignment with a spiritual calling and purpose. Don’t let your ego get the best of you.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: His stars favor the transition, as Emmy-winning “SNL” head writer Seth Meyers makes the move to late-night television. His sun and Mercury in Capricorn is an indicator of stamina, discipline and unflappable resolve. His moon, Venus and Jupiter in Aquarius brings the kind of wild-card creativity and eccentricity that translate into comedy gold.
