Hunger is a strange thing. One would think that the longer one goes without food, the hungrier one would get, but this is not the case. The body has an efficient way of managing appetite, and a million other things, too. In these early stages of the Pisces solar journey, feelings will be fleeting. Let the wisdom of the body and heart process it all.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). For the versatile singer who is great at doing impressions, the most challenging song is the one sung in his own voice. Today you'll be challenged to deliver like only you can — to sing your song in your voice.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Why not just believe that you're lucky? Someone's going to find that money on the ground. It may as well be you. You're looking out for it ... and for all the metaphorical representations in which money on the ground can come.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're not a daredevil exactly, but you're still a risk taker, especially in nonphysical areas of life. The bold move you're considering is pretty audacious, even for you. Position yourself well first.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). First impressions will be important today. All future interactions will be colored by someone's initial response to you — but, hey, no pressure! As long as you dress the part and put away your phone, you'll be ahead of the game.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). To learn about the world, babies observe the design, behavior, purpose and effect that things have. Then they make an association and record it as fact ... but that doesn't make it true. It's a case study. Most of life is just a case study.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Boredom is a fun killer. Yes, there's always something more interesting about the situation if you can break free from the old frame. But life is much simpler if you're already somewhat fascinated by your subject.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A friend who knows you well enough to sense when you're hiding something ... now that's a treasure! There are cons to it, of course, but they are not as important as being truly seen and understood.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Eventually, you'll have the experience and wisdom to run things, but for now you're better off coming up with ideas from the naive position in which you happen to be. Strikingly bold insights come to you because you're free of influence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). That feeling of familiarity upon meeting someone for the first time takes many forms. Instant love: Where have you been all my life? Instant kinship: It's like you've been here all my life. Instant boredom: Oh. You again.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're usually so ambitious, but right now you may not want to commit to business, or even to a hobby. Why should you? Isn't it enough to just have interests? You can have so many at once. And interests are totally free.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's a pain to have to pretend or fake a story to spare someone's feelings. You'll do it if you have to, because it's kind (though you'll avoid the dynamic completely by being around people with whom you can be honest).
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be met with resistance, but don't let this deter you. All you have to do is raise your energy a few points — the resistance will back down, and the road will be clear.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (FEB. 23). Your life brightens in this new solar cycle, and you'll be tempted to credit this to a special person or lucky event. It's really you, functioning at a higher capacity and letting more into your world. March will be characterized by a helper's high. The distant horizon of June is a place you'll return to again and again. Cancer and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 13, 49, 8 and 16.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Confrontation can clear the way to peace. Assertiveness and directness are not aggression. TAURUS: You will be the inspiration for someone else's self-realization. GEMINI: Feelings will unleash. What comes out could be transformational, or at the very least, perspective-altering. CANCER: The person who is a mystery will keep you guessing all weekend and far beyond. LEO: Self-doubt is a monster. Instead of doing your best to keep the monster at bay, invite it in for tea. VIRGO: Everyone in your group has one thing in common: They all like you. LIBRA: A little pressure can be good for the relationship. The fear of losing someone can bring that person closer. SCORPIO: It all starts with a beautiful conversation. SAGITTARIUS: Loved ones present ideas that are so far out of reality it's hard not to laugh. But humor them, out of love. CAPRICORN: Romance is different depending on what stage of life a person is in but not as different as you might guess. AQUARIUS: When in doubt, say less. Even better, say nothing. PISCES: True love is not a financial issue, though financial issues sure do impact the course of it.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Cancer and Pisces represent two-thirds of the water-sign population of the zodiac. Times like these (with the Cancer moon very much at home and reflecting the adoration of the Pisces sun) give these lovebirds reason to let go of whatever was keeping them apart. Any grievances, circumstances, pride, or fear of appearing foolish or getting too attached ... it's all irrelevant now. There is only love.
