It’s easy to see the potential in things on this day before the new moon in Aquarius. What’s hard is remembering not to fall in love with potential. There are many reasons why it would be a bad idea to do so, the foremost being that it robs you of the chance to love what is actually in existence right in front of you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your feelings don’t happen merely in your mind. They take over your whole body, permeating every cell and atom with their tone. That’s why any effort you make to put yourself in a wonderful mood will be health-enhancing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do people change? Will you change? The answer to both questions is a resounding “yes.” Furthermore, change for the better is the odds-on favorite to happen.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even though the work scene isn’t perfect now, you’re getting a better concept of the career you want. Spending time with people who have a bit of what you want will bring clarity.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Much needs to happen if your relationship is to pass from this state to one that’s more pleasing to you. The good news is that it will happen quite naturally when you focus on doing the most loving thing moment to moment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Much is working in your favor today, largely because you throw yourself into work you enjoy. The action will rush freely into the evening, which is even better than the hours before.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The one who keeps asking about the end result is missing the point. The result is a byproduct of good work. When the work is right the result will be right. Focus on the work.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are usually methodical and thorough in your thought processes. So when your mind perceives the truth or untruth of things without seeking the evidence that would prove it, this is your intuition speaking. Heed it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are recognized by certain characteristics. When you change one or two of them, people will need a moment to figure out how they are going to see you. Give them time to adjust.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are many reasons to be ambivalent. Some will use this tactic as a defense: If they don’t care, they won’t be hurt. In contrast, you will care deeply and risk the pain.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll feel largely responsible for the state of things around you. To assign the reasons elsewhere would make you a victim, and you’re far from that. You’ll assume that you have the power and go from there.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll have a strong negative reaction to things that other people consider normal. If it doesn’t make you feel good, you’ll skip it. You’ll stick to the obviously life-enhancing activities.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There have been times in your life when you made rapid improvements. Because you were willing to drop the behavior that put you in a bad position, you made your way to a better place.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re highly driven. This month you’ll create rituals that keep you on track with goals. Keep tweaking your approach until you find out what works. March shuffles your social lineup. In April, you’ll sacrifice for the sake of a relationship, and soon your efforts will be reciprocated. July brings a financial bonus. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 22, 34 and 25.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: My husband says I’m crabby and I should try to be more positive. But I am bothered by at least a hundred things a day. For instance, yesterday I bought a book, and it turns out the author included blank pages for me to write about my experiences with the material. Isn’t this really because the author ran out of things to write about and so decided to pad the book with blank pages? If I wanted to write my own book, I would. I don’t need the author to tell me where to write. I already have access to all the blank paper I’ll ever need, thank you very much. Anyway, I don’t feel like being more positive. Should I get a new husband instead? — Snarky Scorpio
Each person has a positivity set-point. It would be unnatural, even false, for you, honest Scorpio, to deviate very far from yours all at once. Anyone asking you to do so is missing the benefit of your highly original, insightful views. However, if you are bringing your husband down, he has every right to request a change of tone. Perhaps you should keep track of your amusing complaints on some of that blank paper you have access to.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aquarius actor Avan Jogia, who plays teen heartthrob Beck Oliver on the Nickelodeon show “Victorious,” will soon be making the leap from television to film. This driven Aquarius was born under a fiery Aries moon, which suggests he’s drawn to high energy and likes to be in the center of the action. Several of his planets in Capricorn, including Venus, suggests that his career comes first.
