The soulful full moon and eclipse in the realm of domesticity recall the mythology of groups. Every cluster has a story. It's the same in families and companies and countries; lies get told over and over until they become the truth. As long as everyone sticks to the story, the new generation doesn't know any better. Be wise to the phenomenon and listen with an open mind to metaphor.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have given plenty. Though it's your turn to receive, life and people are both unfair. At least with people you can reason and make new arrangements. Much depends on choosing your company well in the first place. Learn what narcissism looks like so you can avoid it. Seek relationships with givers.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Write down your stressors and worries where you can see them so they are out of you. Then, relax and get your mind off of them for a while. Come back later to split the list in two categories — that which you can and that which you can't control. Make a plan around the things you can control. Life gets immediately better.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). "What's in it for me?" is a good question to put on repeat. Does it sound selfish? Maybe it is, but when you don't know what's in it for you, you're likely to do things for the wrong reasons — perhaps external validation, instead of the intrinsic joy of the thing. How can you act for your own happiness and satisfaction?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your life will not unfold to you in a logical or very typical way. What's happening in your experience will be similar to what happens in many places throughout the universe. What seems inherently chaotic and unpredictable will tend to naturally become ordered. All you have to do is relax and let it be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The great things that happen this week occur because there's a system for making them occur. If you can't readily see the system, maybe it's so big, old and ingrained that you have to take a step back to get the wide-angle view. Now, what system could you create to make some of your new dreams come true?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's not hard to focus on what truly matters to you. It's actually what's happening all of the time. The hard part is recognizing it's what you're doing and reconciling your actions with your self-concept. It will involve admitting things, such as how much security matters to you. This work is essential to your self-development.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as historically there have been both good and bad times to be a buffalo hunter, there are times when it's more or less difficult to hunt for justice and sincerity. For instance, right now is a pretty difficult time for hunting all of the aforementioned, and, definitely, don't let that stop you from the adventure of trying.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's much you do automatically for the well-being of your mind and body. The good habits have been with you so long, they are just a part of how you do life. Someone you know struggles to establish such habits or perhaps never learned the concepts to begin with. You'll help in this regard, giving a valuable gift.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The sparkle of a day depends on what happened the night before. So in a very real sense, nighttime routines will be the secret to your success this week. Tune them up and hold them sacred. You have the chance to set yourself up for some beautiful days ahead.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your internal thoughts and feelings reflect back to you from the outside world. When you love what you're getting, don't be embarrassed by the excitement and trust that what you're giving is creating this. And when you don't love what you're getting, change your give. Treat it as a simple transaction; it becomes one.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People help each other, and that is typically overlooked, if only because our brains are wired for the hurts to stand out in stark contrast to the assists. Make a conscious effort to appreciate what's going well. You can raise your happiness exponentially with this.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What's worth working on now: being present to what's going on inside you. A willingness to acknowledge feelings that aren't glamorous, confident or even appropriate will help you to become more powerfully aligned. You needn't publicize your findings to get the benefit of a stronger you-to-you trust bond.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: In the ancient Sanskrit text, thunder speaks different words to different people. Your message will be loud and clear to you. Others have different interpretations; yours is still right for you. It's a solar year for becoming at once stronger and more sensitive to life and to your personal sense of what is beautiful. Your spirit is open and nimble, ready to go in new directions. Opportunities for money turn into adventures. The quest for better relationships leads to self-actualization.
