The Gemini moon loves a trend. One that's currently popular in the realm of self-help is the idea of microhabits. It may seem that making a goal to floss one tooth or do one situp won't make a difference in a person's life, but the accomplishment of even the smallest goal reinforces the identity of a person who accomplishes goals. Hop on board!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). People do not stay interested in the same thing forever. Interests change on scale with personal growth. When your interests change rapidly, it's not that you're flaky — you're just growing quickly into someone new.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While it's possible to love someone with whom you have little in common, that love will have a limited means of expression compared with the many ways love is expressed between people with more common ground.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A secret talent is like an illicit love affair, occupying a dream space outside of place and time, not fitting into normal life. But sooner or later, the passion must integrate into daily living or it will fade away completely.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People are not standards. They are not behaviors. They are flexible beings who can show up in many different ways. Much will depend on what you expect of them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You were not adequately supported or tended to. So you worked harder, developed yourself further ... and came to a realization. They are never coming around. It's not you; it's them. You can live with it or seek different elsewhere.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Faces diverted into glowing screens — a very uncharismatic look. Unnecessary phone usage is such a turnoff to you that a person's screen addiction could be relationship deal breaker.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). An informational tidbit has the potential to set you spinning down a winding road for hours. Try to stick to your original intent. Tonight, your connection with a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) will refresh your soul.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll jump into a project in the manner of the Looney Tunes cartoon character Tasmanian Devil. In your tornado whirl, obstacles will be uprooted, and they never even saw you coming.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). With so many distractions of late, taking back the control of your time will feel terrific. Though you feel there's not a moment to waste on the mundane, some of it is more crucial to the big picture than it would seem.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you don't make your work important, they won't either. It's about time to up the ante. This could mean asking for more attention, responsibility or money. It could mean claiming a higher rank or a better role.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's not fair that you were born with so much social intelligence at your disposal you don't even see it as being a talent. It is. And people need your help. All you have to do is show up — suddenly, it's a whole lot better.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are benefits to low self-esteem and benefits to high self-esteem. The most advantageous belief to hold about yourself is a flexible one that allows you to settle into the role and attitude that best serves all.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (FEB. 24). The year brings a quickening — you feel somehow more alive. The next three months bring ideas to invigorate your body and animate your life. There's a turn of power at work. The start of summer presents a choice that will affect domestic life. There's no wrong way, but life will be very different with each option. Aries and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 7, 44, 29 and 15.
COSMICALLY CURIOUS ABOUT... SELF-PARENTING (PART 5)
The road to maturity involves becoming an increasingly adept parent to oneself. FOR CANCER, effective self-parenting is more of an inner stance than a specific group of rules or behaviors. It's a way of seeing and relating to oneself that's accompanied by a sense of security, acceptance and calm.
Cancer is among the most fluid and feeling signs of the zodiac. Ruled by the moon, a Cancer's moods are a constantly shifting cloudscape, beautiful for their unpredictability. These moods actually don't come from out of the blue, though. Rather, Cancer's emotional range is usually an intelligent reaction to the deep, quick perceptions Cancer tends to have — often observations that others have missed. Just as kind parenting involves accepting whatever mood the child happens to be in and recognizing that there are no wrong or right feelings, kind self-parenting reflects the view that though feelings may be inconvenient, intense or difficult, that doesn't make them wrong. Feelings are natural responses to life, sources of information, things to move through instead of reject or ignore. Self-parenting involves a loving witnessing of the various moods and feelings of life along with the realization that it isn't necessary to wrap our identity or behavior around every emotion that drifts through.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Sometimes he's called "Pretty Boy," and sometimes he's called "Money," but the thing that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is most often called is a champion of boxing with multiple world titles in his undefeated career.
