A cooperative Libra moon emphasizes the benefits of partnership. Right now, it’s better to operate within a partnership that seems to only half-work than to go it alone. We need each other. We don’t see things clearly on our own, and neither will we understand ourselves until there’s someone to reflect us, contradict us and bounce our ideas off of.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You won’t have things just as you like them, so don’t waste time trying to make the world fit your image. Instead, deal with what’s available, and try to make it work.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s like you’re in a maze that you have figured out many times before but can’t remember. It’s not difficult, but it’s a bit frustrating that even though you’ve already done the work, you’re repeating the steps as if for the first time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The composition Mozart wrote in one day had enough exuberance in it to fill several lifetimes. Similarly, you’ll be concocting a joyful creation with an everlasting quality.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll have the sense that you’re moving on to better things – not necessarily bigger things, but things better suited to you. This brings hope and keeps it alive.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Realizing that all things have a cycle, the kindest thing to do is to breathe in for the rise and exhale for the fall, being there all along the way. Fighting the inevitable is graceless.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know the one who will be loyal and true – you have a sense about these things. So put your energy into that relationship that is sure to give you happiness again and again.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you’re not sure what you should say, don’t say anything at all. When you’re sure, say it confidently. Even if you’re not sure, say it strong. Strong and wrong will rule over weak and right.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Here’s a mighty fine reason to like a person: They have a way of bringing out the best in you. So whom do you feel good around? Arrange to be around those people more often.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may feel like you’re missing the point, but don’t worry – it will hit you when you’re good and ready. The lessons you don’t learn during this part of the journey will be repeated in the next.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Those wordless little sounds you make – the sighs, mumbles, giggles and such – serve to entrance and fascinate a certain someone who may even be falling in love with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The way you execute your plans will inspire and motivate others to do the same. Later it will be suggested that you have elevated your group, and hopefully you’ll understand and be very proud of the truth in this.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Calm, steady progress may be the secure way to build, but for you, it works differently: Nothing happens for a long time, and then suddenly it all seems to be happening at once.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Abnormal is the new normal. You’ll develop a highly unusual interest. It may prove a passing fancy, but the creativity it inspires will last all 12 months. You’ll make beauty, express novel ideas or invent something the world needs. This fall, platonic love could turn romantic, or friends could go into business together. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 29, 3, 31 and 17.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The structured and orderly nature of the astral lineup will nurture and encourage us as we attempt to bring our domestic lives into harmony. There’s a prevailing and comforting sense that those who are determined to make their own luck will get their due. The auspicious portal opened up by the Cancer sun and Saturn in Scorpio in the middle of the week pulls in some poetic justice from the great beyond just to drive the point home. Saturn doesn’t like anyone to get away with less or more than he or she deserves. All the while, the maternal sun in Cancer clucks from the sidelines of the playground: Be nice. Don’t be greedy. Let your friends go first!
The next bout of excitement comes with Saturday’s thunder moon. It’s the full moon in Capricorn and a time to consider your ambitions. A party mood will prevail. As long as you’ll be bonding with others, consider who might be good for you to know, and place yourself accordingly. Strategic socializing will lead to political, professional and personal good fortune.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Be kind whenever possible,” says the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. Then he adds, “It is always possible.” His Holiness was born when the sun and Pluto were in nurturing Cancer and Mercury was in quick-thinking, eloquent Gemini. This year progresses the Dalai Lama’s mission to foster inter-religious harmony and preserve Tibet’s peaceful, nonviolent Buddhist culture.
