On a flat surface, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. But on the eve of the Pisces full moon, the emotional landscape is anything but flat. The high and low feelings are peaks and valleys that will affect the length of your journey – or at least how long the journey feels. Good times fly by, so savor them while they last.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Of course you can be mad at someone and still love that person, but young and emotionally immature people don’t understand this as well as others do. Declare your love often regardless of your momentary feelings.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take those things that you are obligated to do off of your list. Obligation just isn’t a strong enough motivator to get you to take action now. You’ll be too busy addressing that which is urgent or fascinating.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If your focus seems fuzzy or your attitude is at half-mast, don’t go forward. Go for total engagement or none at all. A determined effort is needed if you are to avoid wasting your time.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone is purposely keeping you in the dark because he or she is afraid of your possible reaction. When there’s little else to go on, let your keen instinct take over.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do, as long as you are strong enough to believe it – and you certainly are! You’ll get the chance to show your backbone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you realize that someone is rating you on your looks, success or status rather than on their experience of you as a person, you are being objectified. Steer people to the real you, not the you on paper.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your physical travels mirror your mental travels. Your thoughts will take you all over the map. Every time you land someplace new today, recognize those thoughts that are responsible for the journey.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Love is the magic ingredient of success. If you apply skill, money and talent to a project but do not apply love, you won’t find as much success as you would if you applied nothing more than love.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can only come at a relationship from your own point of view, but at least you recognize that others think differently. That you care enough to ask about their experience of things will matter.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t cheat yourself! Being generous is one thing, but giving like you don’t even exist will ultimately be a detriment to all. Claim what you need, and hold on to it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Nothing will be written in stone today. You may choose and then change your mind, speak and then retract, claim and then trade your claim for another. Stay versatile.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Utterly narcissistic people don’t see themselves as lacking empathy. Your pointing it out will make no difference. Navigate the interaction by accepting the limitations of this type.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your desire for special family bonding will be fulfilled now and at many points throughout the year. At work, you run a fair operation and earn the trust of clients and partners in October. November brings an expansion. January features a fun twist. Adventure sparks your social life. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 2, 11, 22 and 19.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m ready to meet Mr. Right. Now, where is he? I’ve scanned the dating sites and clubs, and I’m seeing the same people over and over. I’m just not interested. I’m a Sagittarius. Does that mean I’m going to have to travel to find him? And how will I know it’s him, by the way? What qualifications will he have?”
Instead of focusing on finding Mr. Right, concentrate on creating a social life you love and loving the social life you create. Being so intent on finding the perfect person is repellent – the more you pursue the relationship the more it eludes you. The law of attraction (you get what you focus on) works against you in this case. You focus on “searching,” and all you get is more “searching.” When you resolve to create a social life you love and love the social life you create, you’ll be engaged in the process of having fun. Every guy wants to get to know the woman who’s having fun. Sagittarius is the sign of expansion. You’re better off when you have many choices. So cast your net wide, and be friendly to many. Then sit back and see who naturally commands more of your interest.
