The Venus and Pluto situation eases up, freeing the energy around decision-making, as it no longer seems that every little move in love and relationships will have a defining or fateful impact. These Scorpio lunar vibes can be spiky, though. Give the prickly people you know a little more space. Love from a distance like porcupines.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The most beautiful things have something a little unpolished about them to keep them accessible and imperfect, because inaccessibility isn't very compelling and perfection is boring.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You and a loved one may disagree on a few things, which is why it's very important to recognize and unite on that which you do agree. No one needs to be convinced or changed. Everyone just needs to be accepted.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're observant, clever and convincing. The bottom line is that you can sway people, and this is both a power and a responsibility. Before you get going, stop and ask yourself what's best for all.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Whether you're the teacher, the boss or the cheering section, repeated uplift is the way. It's not enough to give encouragement once and then expect people to do well. It's the habitual enthusiasm that will make a difference.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Groups change. Organizations become reorganizations or splinter into factions, or they dissolve, allowing new groups to form. The thing to do is to accept that the way it is now isn't how it will always be and to show up strong anyway.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You've been thinking about an endeavor that's extremely interesting and enticing on many levels, although it's also a real stretch for you. When you put your mind to it and plan well, you can pull off something amazing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You follow the same path and end up somewhere different. How could this be? Maybe you go further than before, or maybe the company you keep changes everything about the journey.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's as if your whole mind is lit up and ready to wrap around this day. That's why nothing exists in one dimension for you, and three is also too few, because you are understanding things on levels unexplainable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Optimism comes naturally to you today. You'll so easily see how things are working and continue to work even better once you make a few small adjustments.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The talks won't go as anticipated — a good sign you're doing it right. The only conversation that's predictable is the terrible kind in which one person speaks and never lets the other person contribute.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Quite simply and suddenly, what appealed to you before won't anymore. It's as if the attraction just lifted — floated off. Taking its place will be freedom and more options than you knew existed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Do all you can to get the right amount of sleep; it's crucial to this educational cycle you're in. Learning is a physical process. When you sleep, the neurons in your brain build the architecture to use what you've learned.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 24). You get newer instead of older this year because of key lifestyle improvements. Fresh education gives you all the motivation you need, and by May, you'll be looking back, already impressed as to how far you've come. Loved ones follow your lead. Love and friendship are the centerpiece in carefree days of July. Leo and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 7, 20, 12 and 45.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: March opens with this square of Venus and Uranus, which shows things about relationships that many would rather not see. If you put someone on a pedestal, you'll understand the problem with that. If you met someone new and then accidentally projected onto that person qualities he or she doesn't have, that will show up, too. How about the old trick of expecting that the new person will have the same faults and strengths as the previous person and acting as if that were so? Yes, that will be another fun party trick that gets exposed with this square of Venus and Uranus.
But it's not all bad news. Because isn't life better when we figure out the errors in our perceptions and straighten them out to more accurately align with how things really are? Of course, we're all human and unlikely to come to any consensus about the entirety of this thing called "reality." But we can get closer, right? And it's always a little uncomfortable when we realize we were wrong, but that's what it takes to squeeze our oversize egos into our big-people pants. Once that part is done, we can get on to the business of trying to live and love a little bit better.
