The new moon is always an ideal launching pad for fresh ventures, but this one is particularly lucky. That's because it happens to be a supermoon, meaning the moon is near its closest approach to earth. "Hunger" is the buzzword, but it's more like a buzz-growl as our animal nature is highlighted under this sky filled with appetite-driven Taurean influence.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll need one or two more assessments of the situation before you can properly relax. So dive in, make your notes, surmise the outcome and then put the whole thing to rest so you can finally have some fun.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). "No help whatsoever," "more trouble than it's worth," "diminishing returns": These phrases being bandied about don't reflect your feelings at all. You see potential where others see only risk and loss. You'll prove them wrong.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are fair-minded and interested in the opinions of others. You'll go to extra lengths to make sure everyone who wants to chime in on a subject has the opportunity to be heard. Don't forget to add your own voice to the mix.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The money that makes your life easier is the kind you earn fair and square, free and clear. Then there's money that makes your life harder: It's borrowed or given with strings attached. Avoid that kind now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don't let things get boring. Reversals will delight you, especially those pertaining to familial roles. You'll find charm in the way children act like adults and adults play like children.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you once struggled with is now so effortlessly accomplished you hardly remember you're doing it. Details you got hung up on don't matter to you anymore — all signs that you're on to bigger and better things.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you're going someplace that no one has gone before, you're going to have to clear your own road. This is only worth it if the destination is a place your soul feels called to find.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't have to know much about gravity to follow its rules. The compliance of everything around is a perk that comes with being a force of nature. Guess what? You're a force of nature, too.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Try not to get too caught up in the long-term implication of a decision. Focus on whether or not it feels, in this moment, like the highest and best for you and everyone involved.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). That little pot of trouble brewing on the back burner needs some attention. If you ignore it, it's sure to boil over. If you stir it, you'll only be stuck doing that the whole time it cooks. Turn off the heat. It's the only way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your "live and let live" policy usually serves you well, but not today. Bottom line: If you don't speak up in today's situation the other will assume you're a passive bystander.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may jump toward the sun, but you are not trying to land there or anything. It's just that having brilliant goals makes getting off the ground a lot more fun.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 6). You've been so kind to the people around you, and the warm social atmosphere you've built will be a source of pleasure and comfort this year. The next 10 weeks are for finishing a big project. The reward will come in August. September will bring a financial upturn. Traveling to see more beauty will be well worth the expense. Leo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 30, 16, 2 and 29.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: There's an impression you'd like to leave on the people you encounter. As long as you stay focused, you'll effectively do this. TAURUS: Joining another person in song will produce a spiritual bond, even if the two of you are merely listening to music together. GEMINI: Being handy and capable isn't always glamorous, but it's enormously attractive on you. CANCER: You like when the ball is in your court but not when dozens of balls come at you simultaneously. LEO: The less shy you are, the more fun you'll have. More fun leads to more attention and offers. VIRGO: Maybe you're not sure how to reach the other person; you'll find it, though. Scattered efforts are better than no efforts. LIBRA: You know what you want. Just say it. It's the brave, strong thing to do. SCORPIO: You're not getting even; you're just putting an unstable relationship back in balance. SAGITTARIUS: They'll know you're successful by your excellent manners and relaxed way. CAPRICORN: The clothes don't make the person, but they sure add a lot to the image! AQUARIUS: Hang around people who are in love and you'll find the fever is contagious. PISCES: There's nothing to second-guess. If you feel like you're settling, it means you are.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Taurus and Gemini are zodiac neighbors who are likely to borrow a little sugar when the moon slips into Gemini on Saturday. Taurus is receiving all kinds of amorous attention, but Gemini is far too busy to flirt with just one person. Taurus may be bothered by the inattention while secretly finding Gemini's nonchalance enormously attractive. Taurus will love the challenge of capturing Gemini's imagination.
