The Aquarius moon is the sort that has never met a stranger. Much harmony is created from the assumption that all people are either friends or soon to be friends as the moon dances through this part of the sky. It’s an excellent time to celebrate the relationships that make life easier and more enjoyable.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You want to see all of the lovely places and people you possibly can. Tempting new circumstances and persuasive friends will combine to surprising effect.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You make good decisions quickly these days. Because of this, you’ll appreciate a boss or partner who gives you plenty of leeway. You neither want nor require much supervision.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will feel like you have succeeded when you know you have helped other people succeed. That’s why you’ll fall into an unofficial role of teacher, mentor or coach.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You pride yourself on your emotional resolve, but it’s fine to lose it now and then, too – everyone does. You could connect with another in a shared release.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Money is a good way to create security, but it’s not the only way, and it’s not even the best way. Today you will strengthen your position in life through efforts that have nothing to do with finance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you can remain neutral in the situation this afternoon, you’ll save yourself a lot of time and trouble. However, some things are worth getting involved in, especially in the case of defending the defenseless.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some of the wonderful things you’ll experience today include a warm handshake, kind eyes and an invitation to sit and talk. It’s good to be with people who are rich in the talent of empathy.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have to buy the whole box of cereal even though all you really want are the marshmallow charms, and that’s just like relationships. Their sweetest qualities come with other ingredients.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Do you have the feeling that you’re not like the others and that the best thing you could do for the group is to take charge and make things happen? Well, you’re right.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Hugs heal. Give and get them. The people who don’t readily make that kind of contact need it the most. The next best thing is a warm greeting and a listening ear.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The person with the best idea isn’t always the winner. It is the person who earns the most emotional engagement who will be the victor in this afternoon’s scenario.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are feeling more energetic, decisive and courageous than you were yesterday. Plan your next move today, but don’t make it until tomorrow.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The most basic daily occurrences have special meaning in March because you’re with someone you love. April brings a professional leap, and it happens after you apply what you learned last year. The glitch in May will prove to be a highlight in your life’s design. June features romance and celebration. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 29, 31, 34 and 19.
MERCURY RETROGRADE ENDS. It’s the last day of the Mercury retrograde, and there won’t be another until June 7. As the ruler of communication and day-to-day activity stations to change directions, there’s an excellent opportunity to observe our daily lives from a detached perspective and review what is and isn’t working well. But how can we achieve such a detached point of view when we are so busy and inside ourselves?
One of my favorite ways is a mental exercise I call The Visit With Future Me, in which I imagine going to visit my future self in her home and sitting down for a good chat and a nice hot cup of tea. For reasons I don’t understand, my future self lives in a ranch home in the middle of a field and is somehow involved in costuming. My future self is a compassionate listener, and I’ll bet yours will be, too, if you try this exercise. If I ask her for guidance, she’ll give it readily, and often, surprisingly, it is not what I thought she would say. Many helpful and odd occurrences have come out of something I learned during a visit with Future Me, and I hope your relationship with Future You will be equally fulfilling.
