The Taurus moon is a hungry moon. Pisces influences overhead could have us confusing different types of hunger. Emotional needs cannot be met through food and drink. Physical hunger can't be satisfied by love and good intentions. Take a moment to assess the need so that you can assign the correct remedy.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll feel the elasticity of time. It's almost as though your internal clock is set to a counting system different from the one dictated by the clock on the wall. For this reason, being punctual will take extra effort.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may feel that your labor output exceeds your job benefits. This will be especially true if you don't even have a job. The rigors of your familial role are sometimes thankless, which makes self-appreciation necessary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Usually you project your personality in such a way as to give others a solid idea of who you are. You'll benefit from a more private approach now. Making yourself a bit of a mystery will serve you well.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It is a rare gift to be able to see yourself as others see you. You possess this gift. The honest people around you help, too. You'll enjoy ease in relating to others and will create a healthy interpersonal dynamic.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can't force things to happen, and yet your attention makes a huge difference in the way things develop. So stay alert to the subtle changes taking place around you, and let others know that you're watching.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be your pleasure to stave off the creeping malaise that threatens your domestic scene. Proactive attention does the trick. The work you do to make your home beautiful is especially important.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The first answer that comes to mind may not be the correct one. Be willing to go through the entire problem-solving process, which will include some experimentation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your live-and-let-live attitude makes you attractive to others, and they'll be generous with you, too. There will be a happy balance between what you expect out of your relationships and what you actually receive.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Keep your cool in the midst of upheaval. You may actually enjoy the flurry of activity around you precisely because you don't get caught up in it. Instead of taking risks, hold off until a storm blows over.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are a pillar of stability. You sometimes forget that in order to continue to withstand the pressures of day-to-day living, you need love. Hugs and praise are important factors in your well-being.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are inclined to be intolerant of your own mistakes. Where others are concerned, you're more lenient. Treat yourself with the same gentleness you extend to others. Nothing good comes of being too hard on yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Share what you're doing with others and, perhaps more importantly, what you'd like to be doing. Friends will connect you with your next amazing opportunity.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 26). You'll feel loved this year. Your sense of humor and self-assurance draw expressive people into your world. Family bonds strengthen through March. You'll feel driven to share your skills through the next 10 weeks, and in teaching others, you'll build a lasting legacy. Income grows through July. Cancer and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 5, 24, 13 and 19.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Though Pluto is no longer considered a planet by the International Astronomical Union, you wouldn't know it by the way this ruler of awesome dormant forces stirs things up this week. It's the start of a significant square involving volatile Uranus in the hotheaded sign of Aries. This aspect will reach its peak on June 24, but because of the slow-moving nature of the involved parties, the distant rumblings can already be heard. The global, societal and political quickly become personal, and vice versa. This is an excellent time to try to understand the big picture and get involved in change.
Wednesday brings a wonderful occurrence, especially for leap year babies and those who love them. To those rare Pisces born on February 29, your special day is a reminder of how intermittent adjustments can keep the world on track. If it weren't for the addition of February 29 once every four years, it would only take 100 years for our calendar to get off track by 24 days. And if it weren't for the fantastically sensitive, creative and compassionate Pisces people born on February 29, the world would be a much different place from what it is today. Happy leap year!

He appeared in the 1956 film "Frontier Woman" and hasn't stopped working since. The acclaimed director, actor and producer was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were in empathic and artistic Pisces. A Capricorn moon offsets the sensitive side with down-to-earth stability and a terrific business sense.
