Split Moon The moon in Cancer for the first part of the day and then in Leo for the second makes for a fun split in the mood of the day.

FOR RELEASE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2012
This weekend has a lot going for it. The waxing Aries moon has the feeling of high spirits and fresh starts. Mercury and Mars settle their differences, and people aren't as sensitive and apt to take things personally. Revel in uncomplicated joy. Next week brings a rare leap date of February 29th and an interesting Uranus-Pluto square.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're an agreeable person in general, but that doesn't mean you're going to say yes to everything that's presented to you. In fact, you're likely to say no at least three times and be better off for it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Detective work isn't just for criminal cases. Sleuthing will be necessary in your professional life even if you don't work for the police. You'll do well in a situation that requires cunning and secrecy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The hardiest seed in the world still requires particular circumstances in order to grow. You're tough inside, but you still have needs. There's nothing wimpy about knowing what they are and getting them met.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Today's conflict may be subtle and, therefore, insignificant to those around you, but it means something to you. Your shrewd strategy makes you a formidable opponent. You're likely to be crowned with glory.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your best financial luck occurs when you are happily doing what you want to do for your own reasons — reasons that even you may not understand. Being totally unconcerned about monetary rewards could make you rich.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll work incredibly hard and bring your goals ever closer. When it comes to play, you think you have no goals, but think again. Live a little. Make a plan to secure your own pleasure and joy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You want to use your talents and develop as a person. There are many routes to this end, none of them particularly "right" or "wrong." Still, you'll appreciate the confirmation that you're headed in a good direction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're still learning what it means to be you, and there always will be more to learn. You are a sojourner in the mystifying adventure of human experience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Following your passion makes you feel like you're in synch with the mechanics that operate the engine of the world. You are in wordless conversation with everything around you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What would happen if you demanded nothing of yourself? If you remove all pressure to perform and opt to do what comes naturally, even if that means doing very little, you'll get to the heart of what you need.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Stay away from people who seem listless or bored. These same people may be the "coolest" around, but they'll bring you down with their contagious moods. Favor those who draw out your enthusiasm.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 25). You'll revel in the time you spend with loved ones. You have much to give, but something impeded your contribution in the past. The block will be lifted. Laughter and fun fills your spring. Your dedication to a project will lead to bigger assignments and responsibilities. You'll find the challenge exhilarating. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 17, 2, 39 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I recently dreamed that a middle-aged woman had come for a visit to my husband's work and had somehow wound up dead there. In the dream, I do not think it's my husband's fault; I think she died of natural causes. But instead of calling 911, he neglected the situation and I was left to figure out what to do with the remains of this woman weeks after the fact. In the dream, I was upset and wanted him to come clean to the police, but I knew no one would believe him, so I also wanted to protect him by taking care of the situation myself. What does this disturbing dream mean? I've thought of it very often and can't seem to let it go. I'm a Pisces."
I sense the middle-aged dead woman in the dream is a part of you — perhaps the "you" you used to be around your husband. Through nobody's fault (natural causes), that version of you is no longer. Perhaps the relationship you used to have together is also "dead" and he refuses to see this as an emergency (and dial 911). Instead you are left to figure it out on your own, which is indeed distressing — albeit far less distressing than the possibility that your husband is, in reality, hiding a body.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pop star Ke$ha is a free-spirited Pisces with Mercury and Jupiter in the artistic, magical realm of Pisces, as well. The astral influence is easiest to see in works like the psychedelic-inspired video for "Your Love Is My Drug," though these aspects don't always show up in such a colorful and obvious way. Pisces energy can be lively and whimsical, but it also can be subtly spiritual, wise and quiet.
