Tomorrow's new moon in Pisces is a chance to set sail on a spiritual journey. This preroll moment will be as crucial as packing well is to an expedition to sea or space. Think ahead about what you might encounter and how you'd like to show up for it. Anticipation and intention will help you seize the mysterious power of this cycle.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Grace is as difficult as any other heavy lifting. No need to pump iron or drag a tire to get strong. It looks so much cooler to do something ordinary with great strength and poise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Fantastic gifts don't always come wrapped in pretty paper with a bow on top. To know you're getting something good even when the indicators are mixed — this is the art and talent you'll have today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can turn a person off by meeting them in that headstrong "I'm a lot and SO interested in you" way. Since you're being bothered and feeling experimental, you may as well give the strategy a try.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Questions can be kind or they can be invasive. You know what to answer and what to avoid. More importantly, you know what to ask to open doors.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The minute you feel pressure, you know that you have power. Otherwise, why would they have to assert themselves like this? Step back. Accept pressure from no one.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Before you go to the store or sign up for a class or throw money at the situation, consider that maybe what's needed is another way of thinking about what's going on here. How else can you see it?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Take it slow and calm. Your safety and well-being are your No. 1 priority. Don't let the excitement of new responsibilities, people and circumstances overshadow that.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Every stage and room of life is different. What plays well on one doesn't look so great on another. There are matters of scale and light to consider. Get help setting things up. Another eye on the thing won't be a bad idea.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are things you have but no longer need and other things you need but you don't have. It's time to get rid of the excess to make room for the new.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Casual situations will suit you, and you'll appreciate how you can discover and be yourself without the pressure of needing to pretend or perform.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Though some will protest, you don't owe anyone your attention. Beautiful things happen when you give your attention only as you want to give it, without obligation or guilt.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As beautiful, ornate or gilded as a room may be, if you can't get out when you want to, it's still a cage. It's a day to test and protect your freedom.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 22). You'll discover secrets inside yourself and others. Knowing how things work makes you more powerful in the world. You'll love what it feels like to go where you only dreamed of going before. A relationship grows more dear to you. And this team will create interesting things together. An investment will pay in June. Virgo and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 18, 9 and 44.
HOW TO PLAN A DATE BY THE MOON (PART TWO): One way to keep your personal life tracking with the cosmic tides is to plan your dates by the moon. The Cancer moon would like to remind you that there's no better way to learn about people than by experiencing them in their natural habitat. The crab moon is the perfect time to share home cooking, have a game night or just be low-key, snuggling in front of the TV.
There's no business like the business you get down to during the Leo moon, which is the moon of entertainment and show business. Everyone's more playful, dramatic, theatrical, passionate, stupid and full of themselves. Sure, go to the movies or a show if you want, but it's more fun when you find a way to put on your own.
The Virgo moon is when you'll meet-cute at the gym, the Wholefoods lunch line or in your acupuncturist's lobby. It's also when you're most likely to meet a partner who is not only interesting but also healthy for your heart to be involved with.
Art can be intimidating. But most people know what they think is beautiful or interesting or cool, and the Libra moon is ideal for taking in that sort of thing (however it occurs to you, whether it's in nature or a card shop or an exhibit) with someone who might like it, too.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Josh Groban has said, "What people know about me, they know through my music." Indeed, one of the best ways to get to know a Pisces is through the music they love. Pisces connect through empathy and lost-in-the-feeling moments. Jupiter and Saturn in Libra, the sign of partnerships, indicates a knack for choosing supportive allies, indicative in Groban's mentor David Foster.
