What's pinker than pink? The super pink moon that is the astrological feature of this week. No, it's not the official moon of Victoria's Secret. Rather, the pink moon is named for the flowers that bloom this time of year, specifically the phlox, which comes in other colors besides pink with an impressive intensity of hue. Other names for this moon read like a cosmic menu and include sprouting grass moon, egg moon and fish moon.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though you have natural abilities and that special X-factor quality that draws people in, these gifts have little to do with long-term success. Wins are contingent on behaviors, habits and routines. The right daily actions are far greater drivers of performance than a flash of ability in the absence of those behaviors.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To keep a car driving on the road, sometimes you must steer the wheel left, and other times you must steer right. To stay on track with your goal, you will do one thing, and then later do the opposite thing. Maintain a flexible and alert attitude, and you'll arrive at your destination by Saturday.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You wouldn't do a single thing that might let your team down. But it's not just actions that affect others. Attitude and energy levels are even more influential factors. Feel good about what you do, and do what you feel good about. Get what you need out of the situation. This is what will keep your vibes high.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). If your mind were a city, then this week shows you spending a fair amount of time in the business district taking care of logistics and finance. When the action breaks, you'll explore lively streets of entertainment and mix it up with fun groups and cheering crowds. Time spent visiting a sacred spot will serve you well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're not sure whether you should be committing wholeheartedly to an endeavor. The learning curve has been steep, and you've yet to see results. Have faith. Energies are converging. Like water running to the sea, let the gravity of this focus draw you in. There's something for you here. Trust and surrender.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Personal ambition has a way of obscuring your big-picture view. When you sacrifice personal ambitions for the betterment of the group, you'll be lifted higher to a plane, where your view is unobstructed. You'll see another picture entirely and know more clearly what is possible for you and for all.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will strengthen your own spirit through a better way of relating to yourself. There is no reason that you should speak harshly to yourself or encourage such feelings as shame or regret in the manner with which you approach and regard yourself. Focusing on a more supportive internal environment will benefit you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll give the people around you a positive attitude, no matter what's going on for you. Even people you pass in the street are impacted by your presence to some degree. For this reason, you'll make every effort to stay up, hopeful and supportive — an intention that makes for an all-around improved experience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your superpower is a gift for close listening. Some people confuse listening with watching another person talk while composing one's next line. Listening requires selflessness and curiosity. It is easy to listen when you're genuinely interested in what the other person might say next.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be difficult people to deal with. Perhaps, it's dealing with yourself that's so difficult. Either way, you'll shine. You won't judge. You'll recognize that people act out when they feel afraid. You'll look for hidden needs. You'll remain flexible and willing to try different solutions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This week will involve a performance from you. It's nothing to stress over, as people will appreciate an unpolished version. You're looking to inspire others, not intimidate them. You'll hit the mark and gain followers. What's in it for you? Figure that piece out or you'll wind up feeling loved but unsatisfied.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The actions you take out of inspiration, love or service to a cause be most advantageous to you. As for actions taken out of fear, it is better to do nothing at all than to move with these sorts of desperate energies. Believe in yourself, and you'll avoid selling your future for a quick fix today.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: Harry Potter novelist J.K. Rowling said, "Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve." Your cosmic birthday gift just happens to be nerve in abundance. Broaden your idea of what's possible, and get into the habit of envisioning it every day. You're exceptionally charming and will captivate others with your ability to speak to their particular needs and wants. Your own desires will coincide nicely so long as you keep looking for the intersections, compromises and mutually pleasing aims.
