If everyone did the right, considerate, fair and loving thing, then no one would need to be governed. The trouble is that even people in the same family can't agree on what the right, considerate, fair and loving thing is. Venus is currently retrograde, hiding, and transiting the sign of the warrior. Steer clear of conflict, as it's likely to be futile.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can make a promise about what you'll do, because you have a reasonable amount of control over that. To make a promise about how you'll feel, though — it's just not something you can predict at this time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life will be sweet. Today will present you with an embarrassment of riches. Such a thing can be dangerous. Better to share with a friend than to have the whole pie to yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some say that it's possible to know the character of a person through his or her errors. Others suggest the better moments point the way to a person's soul. Right now it will be enough just to pay close attention, for better or worse.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Something a tad jarring may stir you from the comfortable spot you were in. The trouble with waking up to reality is that, once awake, you have to confront that you were, in some sense, asleep.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You tell yourself to do something and then do the opposite. That's just human. Sometimes you can tolerate this, other times, like today, you can overcome it. You'll clear away the contradictions wherever possible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Relationships are complicated, sure. Is a never-ending, always-growing love even really possible? Believe that it is. Cynicism is the enemy of love.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's not always so easy to find common ground with people, but when you can't find it, you still will find a way of showing support. Your eyes and attitude will say it all.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's exciting where you are right now in your life. It's not perfect, and there is still room for growth. But you've accomplished something, and you'll build on that. Feel good about it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You're not aiming to get a return on your relationships. You go with your heart and your attractions. The fact that you are rewarded so richly today is a bonus.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The more desirable a scene is, the more people want it all to themselves. Don't be discouraged. With enough intention and will, you'll soon break through.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don't worry about making choices that are in keeping with the current style. Fashion doesn't even apply to you now. Your classic ways and tastes will always be in favor.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You won't exactly solve the problem going on between two people you love, but you can make it better by hearing both sides and being generally neutral.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 24). You'll see more of the world this year. A change of venue brings something fresh and fiery to your personal life. In April you'll reach back and fix something that you broke a few years ago. June is for stretching your emotional muscles and taking risks with your heart. August will introduce you to new income. Scorpio and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 30, 20, 1 and 18.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Stay cheerful. Your smile can make someone's day. TAURUS: Your nonjudgmental attitude is a form of love. GEMINI: Whatever you think of yourself, the person you're spending time with sees you as someone different. CANCER: You'll join someone in laughter, and this is how the love bond starts. LEO: Money is one of the top things couples fight about, although it's often among the least worthy topics. VIRGO: Some of your best relationships and opportunities have happened by way of accidental magic, and it's going to happen again. LIBRA: If you could take the pain of growing away from another you would, but growing is something each of us must do on our own. SCORPIO: When you're up to it, you'll burn bright. Give yourself a rest after that. No one is "on" all of the time. SAGITTARIUS: Stress is unattractive. That's why you'll lighten up and sing instead. CAPRICORN: You've a talent for relating to people and bringing peace to the situations of life. AQUARIUS: Real love begins after the fantasy of love pops. PISCES: The more alert you are, the better you can love others the way they want to be loved.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Aries and Aquarius both start with the letter "A," and that's where the similarities end. This fire and air combo may clash this weekend, but it will be the kind of friction that lends itself to learning about one another quickly. There's a thick attraction currently, with the sun in Aries and the moon in Aquarius. If anyone can get under the casual coolness of Aquarius, it's hotheaded Aries.
