What does your home need to make it a better place for yourself and others? Fresh paint? A pantry reorganization effort? A chores chart to cover the cleaning basics? Any action you take in this vein will be lucky, as the new moon in Cancer smiles on domestic projects intended to make home a happy place.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If your efforts seem scattered and ineffective, this is actually positive because it helps you get serious about what you need: a checklist and a methodical approach.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a high standard for the work at hand, but you also realize that it’s a work in progress. Stay steady and trusting of the process. Your patience will help others to be patient.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be in a creative mood, and if you can bring your vision to the things that would make your world more beautiful, you will be pleased with the outcome. A great artist suggested that if you can imagine it, it’s real.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The one who professes over-the-top intentions and affections cares and loves less than the one who expresses a restrained and reasonable course of action.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your ear for music will be developed through the sounds you hear today. Share your taste with friends and social networks. By doing so, you’ll bring joy to many.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The device that’s supposed to be making your life easier may be doing quite the opposite at the moment, but don’t lose hope. Once you’re over the technological learning curve, this will be brilliant.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be tempted to spin off on a tangent, and though the decision is light on logic, there’s something in this instinct that will serve you well. So dare to follow your whimsy.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re not underperforming; you just haven’t committed enough practice time to this activity yet. Keep working. A small amount of daily effort will bring astounding results in the long run.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Entertain risky ideas, but test the waters first. Tonight, your platonic friendships will have an enlightening and positive influence on your romantic life.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Loved ones will test you. Wait until there’s really a reason to be concerned. Until then, stay laid-back. Your easygoing attitude will make them feel comfortable enough to be their best selves.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Self-sufficiency is an attractive quality. Don’t ask your friends to help you unless it’s something you truly can’t do on your own. If it’s not, though, a Taurus will be especially keen to help.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It would be a shame to pine after talents you do not possess while you ignore the ones you do. Seek to embody your own gifts more fully. You only have to be who you are to be successful.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your kindness and compassion will be a beacon of light in the world. You’ll help those in need who cannot fend for themselves. This will be among your proudest accomplishments. A change of scenery in July introduces you to new friends and fresh business ventures. Pull out of a tired situation in September. Gemini and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 34, 1, 28, 32 and 14.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Eye contact will be meaningful, and you’ll be able to accurately read it without asking too many questions. That’s playing it cool! TAURUS: Give your love or potential love the benefit of the doubt, as Mercury is still interfering with some people’s ability to communicate well. GEMINI: Your stellar sense of humor is a natural outcropping of your companionable nature. If they can’t appreciate this, they’re not for you. CANCER: You hold up your end of the bargain and shouldn’t let anyone else get away with doing less. LEO: You don’t want to appear too eager, but it’s better to show enthusiasm than to risk seeming disinterested. VIRGO: Being a completely unique person on the planet means you don’t have to try for originality. Just do you. LIBRA: You’ll accidentally reveal something irresistible about yourself. SCORPIO: A good rule of thumb: No dirty laundry on dates one through 10. SAGITTARIUS: Stellar move: Find out or get an update on what the other person is passionate about. CAPRICORN: Your very presence flusters someone. Do you know whom? AQUARIUS: Your choice of activities will make all the difference between forging bonds and not. PISCES: Accept the pauses (in a relationship or conversation) and make them work for you.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Tonight’s new moon in Cancer favors moonchild couplings. Together, two Cancers can be a moody pair, but at least their moods are well matched – they really understand and support each other! Later in the weekend when the Leo moon takes over, the entertaining cat may turn Cancer’s head. These two should be warned that it’s better to keep things platonic now, as Venus favors friendly ties.
