This will be the most productive day of the week. Even though the Sagittarius sun brings an awareness of the wide array of choices in this vast world, the Virgo moon helps us focus on only the most practical options. Ever-organized, the Virgo moon helps us stick to the efforts that contribute directly to the bottom line.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You deserve to work with experienced people who can help you get to the next level. But inexperienced people who rely on you may be an even better bet to inspire your best.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t put too much stock in what people who are in the thick of a crush have to say. Infatuation is a deceptive state of mind. The same qualities that enrapture you in one moment could repel you in the next.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Take the advice of those who have “been there,” but come up with your own solutions, too. New connections will come about through unconventional methods.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You could extract a wide range of meanings from your daily interactions, but most of them wouldn’t be accurate, and few of the accurate ones would be of any consequence. So avoid over-thinking things.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes when you love people, you feel possessive of them. Intellectually, you know that no person can own another, but there’s a territorial animal instinct inside you that seems to believe otherwise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The moon gives you an extra burst of can-do energy, not to mention a sheen of glamour that the more glamorous around you will notice. It takes one to know one.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may realize that you’ve been trying to fill a void that was never really there to begin with. Nothing is missing. There are excellent reasons why things are exactly the way they are.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Pragmatism is an attractive quality now, especially in the eyes of those who struggle with practicalities. You’ll be paid for using your good sense. Someone will find your logical approach irresistible.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Many will advise you, but it won’t be difficult to know which direction to follow. The wrong way makes you feel stubborn and sluggish. The right way has a nice ring to it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Those who are trying to prove their own rightness will be unable to listen to anyone else. So instead of making a case for yourself and your way of doing things, sit back and gather information you can use later.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When opportunities seem scarce, endeavor to deliberately create them. You may still come up empty-handed, but someone will like your initiative and keep you in mind for the next round.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In some ways, you’re on top of the world. In other ways, you’re in the thick of the muckity-muck, fighting your way through. Neither position is better than the other. The fight keeps you strong, and the ease gives you perspective.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll have excellent timing and a thriving personal life in 2013. Your goals are perfectly aligned with a partner’s, and together you’ll be unstoppable over the next ten weeks. A victory at work will win you money and admiration in February. Those who require special attention will return it threefold in May. Leo and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 20, 41, 47 and 8.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m crazy about a Libra I work with. She’s out of my league, or at least that’s what she thinks. I can tell by the way she blows me off. I have no idea why I’m so interested in someone who isn’t at all interested in me. But I can’t seem to shake the idea that this could work. Any advice for a Cancer guy with a secret crush?”
Just because your Libra isn’t interested in the current version of you doesn’t mean she can’t develop feelings for the future you. Of course, that means you’d have to change. Your self-awareness tells me that with a little personal work, you could turn this around. If that’s something you’re willing to do, focus on developing a powerful and unique presence
Libra women are romantics who give their whole heart when they fall in love, which is why they must be extremely discerning in their choices. Powerful men rank high in their esteem, and she will admire you when you have the confidence to take control. Typically, Libra women also are visual creatures who care about fashion, design and art. They are intrigued by men with a strong sense of personal style.
