The friendly, expansive and pioneering Sagittarius moon is positively buoyant while swelling toward Saturday’s full moon excitement. In light of the portal of good fortune and just rewards that the sun and Saturn opened up yesterday, this should be a banner day for the kind of people who believe they can make their own luck.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Facts are finite. Feelings are infinite. Therefore, the decisions you make with only your head will lead to less fulfilling results than the decisions you make with both head and heart.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No more strolling around looking for inspiration. It’s time to figure out what you want to do and then propose a timeline. A goal isn’t a goal until it has a timetable attached.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). At midday, it will become rather obvious to you that you really don’t know what you’re doing. So what? That’s the way it should be when you’re taking risks and stretching yourself into uncertain territory.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The conventional method will work for some, but not for you today. Prudence isn’t always intelligent, and intelligence isn’t always prudent. It is said that a stitch in time would have confused Einstein.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Stop thinking so much about what to do, and start doing it. There’s so much more that becomes possible when you get into action mode, and once you’re moving, you won’t be able to stop.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Until you’ve seen different parts of the world, you can’t really understand the reality of your own corner. Travel helps you see your life differently and appreciate it more fully, too.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Seize the opportunity to hang out with that silly person you know. You two have your own language of sorts and an endless stream of inside jokes that the rest of the world probably never will understand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your supporters have more faith in you than you have in yourself these days. Don’t be outmatched! It’s time to dig deeper into your soul and open new wells of self-confidence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re even more popular than usual today, and the social aspects of your life will sparkle. You’ll make a new friend even as the ones you already have vie for your attention.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People tend to stay inside the invisible fences they create for themselves. Charismatic characters have a way of influencing you to break your own rules or consider them for the first time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Timing will be key. To arrive at the appropriate moment won’t be as easy as it looks. There’s much planning that will go into it, especially if you have children, pets and other obligations to tend to today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s such a thing as being overly generous. How do you know a gift is too much? If it makes the recipient feel uncomfortably indebted, it’s too much.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You really will feel like a new person in this fresh solar cycle. Here’s the fun twist in August: You’ll be seen in a positive light because of how happy your make yourself, instead of how much you do for others. You’ll receive many proposals in September. Financial breaks come in November and March. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 2, 22, 40 and 16.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My Aries fiance wrote me a love letter. The wording was beautiful and sweet, so what I’m about to impart is going to sound absolutely ungrateful, and yet I have to say that there was something about the handwriting that I found unsettling and childish. It changed the way I saw him, and I even started doubting whether we should marry. Is this crazy? I’m a Virgo, so maybe I’m blowing things out of proportion or being too much of a perfectionist. What do you think?”
Now that digital correspondence is the primary means of connection, the handwritten note is a rare and special correspondence, indeed. Kudos to your Aries for delivering on such a relic of an idea. These days, most people use a pen and paper so infrequently that the standards for handwriting have taken an extreme dive. However low they may be, it doesn’t change the fact that personalities shine clearly through pen and ink. The youngest sign of the zodiac, Aries people are known for their childlike wonder and sense of play. They also can be impulsive and immature. My read on it is that you’re feeling rushed into marriage, which is not something you should enter into with doubt on your heart.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Modern Family” sensation Sofia Vergara will star with Reese Witherspoon in the upcoming film “Don’t Mess with Texas.” This vivacious Cancer Colombian was born when both the sun and the moon were in Cancer and Mercury and Mars were in entertaining Leo. Witty Gemini energy is also a strong theme in Vergara’s astrological chart.
