The avatars we employ in social media are not exactly us, and not exactly someone else either. It is only human to show ourselves as we'd like to be seen. The digital era has turned what was once unconscious into a very conscious act of curation. Venus in Gemini shines a light on the discrepancies between public and private persona.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll extend the benefit of the doubt, delay judgment, tolerate, include and accept. But you won't hand over the keys to the kingdom to anyone who hasn't earned your trust.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're planning something. The only part more important than timing is the weather in the room. In a calm atmosphere, sudden movements are startling. In chaos, anything can happen.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Each bit of information has a particular frequency. When you share information, you share the vibrational tone of it, too. Vibrations change what's around them. Choose carefully what you share.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Like the moon to the sea, you'll move things without touching them. You only have to be yourself, moving along your usual orbit, and things with reflect back naturally.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes, you have to go a little wild to know different sides of yourself. Each situation is different though. Certain wild situations are best passed on. Your judgment on the matter will be excellent.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). For an option to be truly healthy, it must make sense across several categories. If it's good for your body but not your budget, or the other way around, keep looking for alternatives that make more sense.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll experience an instance of poetic justice. This is the most delicious happening of the week and is best savored instead of shared, as its meaning is mostly relevant to you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's wonderful to love someone, and you'll bounce around in the effervescent feeling of this. Be careful not to make this person the center of your life though. You are far better suited for that role.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know who you are, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try new styles of being. The more confident you are in your essence, the less you need to cling to one way of presenting yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know people. You can accurately predict their reactions to certain circumstances. You'll use your predictions to plan an event, and the results will be about as near to perfect as anyone could hope for.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will be compelled to help others, especially the very young, very old or anyone with an obvious need. Be judicious in giving help to anyone outside those categories. You don't want to foster unhealthy dependence.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't want publicity for yourself, but you'll be happy to draw and manage attention for the sake of your cause or your team. You'll reach many this weekend.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 4). The solar return brings brilliant improvements to your daily and personal life. You'll so regularly do what you love that you'll stop looking wistfully forward to weekends and special events and instead find yourself giddy about every day. Your weeks will be peppered with the playfulness and laughter of great friends. Cancer and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 4, 39, 1 and 50.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "Will it work out between me and a Scorpio? I think I'm really in love with him, though I admit we've never met except in email and on the phone. Still, I feel strongly that we were meant to be. He wants to move to be with me! Right now, he lives about 500 miles away. I'm a Pisces. What do you think?"
You are extremely intuitive and may very well be experiencing the strong pull of soulful compatibility. And yet, if that' so, what's the harm in testing the waters first? Go visit your Scorpio friend in his town and see what he's really like. Plan to stay at a hotel for a week while you date the old-fashioned way — using your own car and meeting in a public place. Even better, bring a friend. It's only sensible.
I'm not trying to dampen your romantic spirits or ruin your heavenly plans, but people need to exercise caution when it comes to internet dating. No matter how many lovely emails you've exchanged, the old rules still apply. If you truly are compatible (and Pisces and Scorpio often are!), then you have a long road together ahead. You'll never regret taking things slowly now.
