The Virgo moon calls for an organizational effort. Now that Mercury is revving up in forward motion, there’s an opportunity to get those ducks lined up in a row. Once you do, they’ll follow one another into the pond. Even with all of the hours spent in planning and preparation, this will be the most productive moment of the week, so make the most of it!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone who doesn’t seem to be working hard or logically is finding success, and you’re interested. Maybe there’s a trick to work out or a value to uphold. Whatever it is, you’re ready to learn.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll feel like putting off the errands, the phone calls, the handling of nagging details and more in order to accomplish some bit of unnecessary pleasure. It’s a lucky move, indeed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re constantly improving, and things don’t have to be bad in order for you to make them better. Just make sure the others feel supported. Discretion is key.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re a rebel today, but the fight won’t look like a fight. This is a war of art and/or alliances. You know what you’re up against, but do you know what you’re for?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A foreign place will capture your curiosity. You’ll spend time in study or travel, and when it’s time to leave the experience, you’ll take something of it with you or within you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Ideas are plentiful today, so be sure to write them down. Some of these gems could be taken to the marketplace later or applied to making the world a better place. For now, it’s good just to keep track.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You feel ready to expand, to take educated risks and move forward. Do consider simplifying instead. There’s a good chance that progress will involve concentrating and contracting, not expanding.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Much boils down to the food and drink you choose. If the food gives you energy instead of bogging you down, this will help you increase your productivity and make more money, too.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The change you want cannot be made instantly. But if you change what you do, you will see a difference over time. Make the effort, and then think about what it would take for you to repeat it over the next week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This will be a day of problem solving. You’re good at it because you’re willing to experiment. Within a few reasonable attempts, you will be able to help yourself and others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Avoid making social commitments, because there’s a good chance that when it’s time to go out, you won’t be in the mood for conversation and mingling. Tonight you will prefer the solace of your own mind and imagination.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your emphasis on business and the material world makes it difficult to spend time in the realm of romance. You feel like you need to get a few things handled before you make a heart connection.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You will be driven by an overwhelming need to care for others through the first part of your solar year. The difference you make this month will change lives. August brings an award. You’ll take a break from your philanthropy in September in order to give yourself something you really want. Taurus and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 21, 24 and 36.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “How do you know the difference between love and infatuation? I’ve been with a Capricorn for three weeks, and I think it’s love. I’m ready to be exclusive with him. He says I’m taking it too fast and that I’m still in the infatuation phase. He says he doesn’t want to get hurt. Should I slow my roll? This is the most exciting, passionate, romantic relationship I’ve ever been in. I’m an Aries.”
Fiery Aries thrives on excitement, impulse and risk. Can you savor this fun without being pushy? Like your practical Capricorn beau, I, too, believe that you’re infatuated, but that’s beside the point. Whether you’re infatuated or in love, you’re still creating this relationship with another person. If he’s feeling pushed or pulled, that’s repellant. He’s going to be less attracted to you because you’re asking him to make decisions he’s not ready to make. My advice in this early stage is to build the fun, have experiences, get to know each other and bond like crazy. For now, don’t worry about defining your feelings; just let them grow naturally through the dating process.
