Don’t underestimate the power of one interesting social connection. It can change your life and even the world at large. The Gemini moon shines a light on all things new and novel, including people you haven’t met yet. There’s inspiration and influence to be mined in public places, so go where the crowd is.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your eyes are self-assured; your walk, confident. You don’t care whether they notice or not, but they will notice, and they’ll pay you the attention and respect you command.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When things aren’t going right, it’s a chance for you to show off your skills and make an impression. You’re cool under fire and usually can find a smart way to turn a situation in your favor.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though you don’t consider yourself to be the most adventurous person you know, someone else will watch the daring spirit of your approach and wish to be as fearless as you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be in a social mood. Getting the invite you want will be relatively simple. All you have to do is convey that you’re a great person to be around in most situations.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can’t be controlled now, and you’re likely to act on your most outrageous whims. You’ll defy anyone to try to predict your next move. Your unpredictability is fascinating.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Someone will go beyond the ordinary and the expected to make you happy. Acknowledging this well both privately and publicly will ensure that you get more of such treatment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be caught doing what’s right instead of what’s convenient. You have many winning qualities, but your success ultimately will be credited to today’s show of moral courage.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s not true that ignorance is bliss. Usually, ignorance is something more akin to apathy. You’ll be happiest with the thoughtful types who care about others and take the time to find out what’s going on around them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your style and presentation will matter, but what makes an even better impression is managing to radiate calm energy in a tense situation. It takes emotional mastery for sure!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Course adjustments must be made. If you can’t get a brand-new start, try for a new middle or ending. Ask a Sagittarius for advice. This person will see more options than you currently can.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You realize that you don’t always have to feel passionate to be effective. So even if you don’t feel like working, going out or spending time with a certain person, you’ll show up anyway, and good results come of it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You won’t really know what you want until you’ve tried all of the options and learned what they have to offer you. Until then, each choice on the menu is a learning process.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Lavish in the love that surrounds you this year. This month, a wonderful accident or coincidence sets your personal life moving in a fresh direction. April tests the boundaries of your professional title, and you may decide to get new training. You’ll tear down a project and start over with new materials and people in June. Libra and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 9, 7, 47 and 20.
VENUS IN AQUARIUS: On Ash Wednesday, the day that begins the season of Lent, a time of penance, prayer and giving things up, Venus, the love planet, slipped into Aquarius. In this station, she seems to say, “Why not give up romance? How about passion, too? Do we really need such madness in our lives?”
There are those who claim to think better without the distraction of infatuation clouding the brain, a premise that has been tested by girls schools, boys schools, various religious practices and sects, and at least one episode of “Seinfeld.” If you’re up for such an experiment, Venus in Aquarius will encourage you. She might even convince you, in your suddenly passionless, clear-headed mindset, that romantic love is merely a fantasy that emerges from pre-existing yearnings, a fabricated emotional projection at best.
May you get plenty accomplished during this transit and bond in a variety of loves. If none of them happens to be romantic in nature and that is worrisome to you, take heart that this transit will be over on April 5th, when Venus moves into the much more romantic realm of Pisces.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: His iconic characterization of Walter White in “Breaking Bad” became something of a pop-culture phenomenon and made Bryan Cranston one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. This Pisces actor was born when the moon and Mars were in ambitious Capricorn and Jupiter and Leo were in the sign of the entertainment business. Look for Cranston in the upcoming “Godzilla” movie.
