A soft, diffused Pisces lunar influence glows through the hazy start of 2020. Take a moment to get right internally. We must decide who we are and orient ourselves accordingly. If we're lax, then we'll revert to old, lazy ways. A little willfulness up front will be necessary. Later, an action-oriented Aries moon will direct our follow-through.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are clever and consistent. You may stumble here and there, but you know the direction you're going. And as long as you don't give up, you will always find a way to get there.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Most of the tomorrows are outcomes of todays. But then there are those interesting non sequiturs, like raindrops of good fortune that fall out of perfectly blue cloudless skies. Enjoy today's splash.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your loved ones will likely toss up resistance to your advice, directions and general comments, but you can be sure they will follow your example.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Who said you have to know what you're doing to start? Just start. You'll learn as you go. And don't be afraid to ask for help. People need to and love to help if they can. And if they can't, they'll just say no.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Resist searching. All you need is right in front of you; you only need to look at it a while. Sure enough, a natural curiosity will rise up and guide you to the answer that's been here the whole time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your future is so appealing that you could fall in love with it. Luckily, you learned long ago not to fall in love with potential. It interferes with your ability to use it. Work, reality and loving right now — that's what makes things happen.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's an answer, several in fact, but you only need one. Someone knows; someone you haven't met yet. Make it a point to get out and meet new people in the weeks to come.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It isn't always going to be passion and excitement and newness that keep you motivated to stay on track with your goals. Sometimes it's determination. Right now, it's a simple willingness to do what it takes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Greed, which is among the most boring human traits, indicates thoughtlessness, incuriousness and a lack of creativity. You'll counteract its effect on the world by offering big love wherever you can.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Every love story needs a grand gesture. Consider the story between you and you. Isn't this as worthy as any of a big show? You are the relationship that will carry you through your entire life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Just because it's a new year doesn't mean you'll find a completely different you reflected in the mirror. And yet, inside this face that is your face, fresh thoughts stir. Yes, there actually is something here that wasn't before.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're feeling impressionable and can make this work for you by placing yourself in the environments with the best influences and around the people you would most like to be like.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 1). You'll know just what to cut out, organize and align. Much magic comes of focused work in a single direction. A sweet spirit alights on your world, offering laughter and affection. There will be cinematic-level excitement in the spring and then a spell of steadiness that allows you to save resources to invest in August. Aquarius and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 28, 45, 1 and 16.
NEW YEAR, NEW PRIORITIES: ARIES: Write goals and continue the habit of writing through the year; that's the magic. TAURUS: Decide how you'll be active in the new year. Movement-related goals will be particularly lucky. GEMINI: Resolutions having to do with relationships will be particularly lucky and effective. CANCER: Mistakes are a glorious sign that you're trying new things. Taking risks will be the start of something fantastic. LEO: As your heart embraces feeling, hurts turn to healing. VIRGO: The soul searching you do before you decide on resolutions will put powerful forces into play. LIBRA: This new chapter will be written whether you author it or perform it like an actor. Which is your preference? SCORPIO: The process is the most important part of any goal. If you promise yourself one thing, make a promise to keep returning to the process no matter what. SAGITTARIUS: You'll go forward in good cheer and what felt like work transforms into play. CAPRICORN: The year is new, but you are even newer with fresh hope at the very base of soul. AQUARIUS: A dream, a thought, an action — it's a simple as that, though not necessarily in that order. PISCES: If it was on your list last year and didn't happen, then scratch it. The new year deserves a new approach and a fresh chance to win it.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Two notable American Capricorns were born on the first day of the year, war hero Paul Revere and American flag designer Betsy Ross. Revere was born under the warrior moon of Aries with natal Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus in adventurous Sagittarius. Ross was born when the moon was in Cancer, the sign of the United States of America and patriotism in general.
