Noting that we’ve hardly had time to assimilate the fast-changing cosmic landscape, the Cancer moon steeps a cup of heavenly tea, fluffs a cloudy pillow and coos, “Settle in now. Shhhh.” Sure, our minds are whirring with Gemini’s high level of curiosity and intellectual energy, but little will be applicable until we can calm down.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Somehow, inexplicably, a lack of motivation doesn’t stop you from moving forward and doing what you have to do. This is the difference between the children and the warriors. You have the warrior spirit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Thinking back to times when you had an overblown sense of yourself, it makes you cringe. Don’t be so hard on yourself, though. There are those who don’t reflect in this manner at all. You’re better for the introspection.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It doesn’t matter whether you’re seeking something simple or something grand, quietude or loud rock music. If it’s helping you feel the way you want to feel, it will go well.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You never know about another person’s karma. The insides of relationships are similar to this: They can’t be understood by anyone on the outside. Lead with compassion and tolerance.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). For what’s on the prize table today, you don’t need to win “it all.” You won’t even be happy with “it all.” All you need is some of it. Don’t play to win; play to have fun.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). An item in the material world will bother you if you can’t readily understand what it means. Once you know what it means to you, the object won’t have the same hold over you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What’s common sense to you is not apparent to others. Go slower with your instruction, detailing all of the necessary steps and then reviewing to make sure everyone understands. You really are an excellent teacher.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even though rest is important to your mental health and gentleness is a virtue, right now you won’t regret pushing yourself, because you’re stronger than you know.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Oddly enough, you don’t have to know the way to get there. You manage, you intuit, you ask for signs, and you find yourself in the place you wanted to be.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Often, you can’t make it pretty without making it ugly first. Artists know this and embrace the full range of the process. Once you accept that destruction is part of expansion, you’ll be on your way to creating beauty.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In order to reach your potential, you’ll have to get over some nervy details. There just isn’t time to let yourself be bothered about small fears. Get tough, because you can handle it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Getting down to your deepest self will take some diving, but with your water-sign skills, you’ll be fearless in this regard. Go deeper into your soul. There’s a conversation you need to have, and it’s you-to-you.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll deal the best kind of revenge in June: your own success and the envy of those who once stood in your way. Children will affect your lifestyle and possibly where you decide to live. Something you think is going to be a sacrifice is really just a trade up. You’ll polish and sell a beautiful idea in November. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 29, 44, 20 and 38.
VENUS IN TAURUS BEAUTY SECRETS PART TWO: With Venus traversing Taurus, our appetites for luxury are matched by our willingness to pay heftily for it. But before you plunk down cash for the latest cream, brand or procedure, think twice. Will it really make you more beautiful? And is there a cost-effective alternative? Consider these natural beauty enhancers that you can get on the cheap:
• Supportive undergarments: While lifting, nipping and tucking through surgery might be the right way for many, there are significant risks and costs to consider. The world of supportive undergarments is certainly worth exploring prior to your final decision.
• A beautiful attitude: You know what hurts the attractiveness of a face more than jowls, skin spots or wrinkles? Sadness, depression, frustration, stress, worry, anger and the like. Managing feelings through positive self-talk, healthful habits, spiritual practice, and exercise will take years off of your face. Loveliness increases with each smile.
• Love: The truth is that most people are noticing how you are making them feel more than they are noticing what you look like. Flow love to people, and you become significantly more attractive to them.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Colin Farrell is currently working on a film with a fascinating premise. “The Lobster” is set in a dystopian world where single people are arrested and sent to a hotel where they must find a mate in 45 days or be turned into an animal and sent to the woods. Farrell’s natal Mars in Leo comes with a natural gift for and love of the world of entertainment and all of the adventures therein.
