Having a future-vision is magical, though the most magical time of all is always right now. After all, developments only happen in certain moments and those certain moments are "this one." The sensitivities of the Cancer moon ask, "What sensory stimulus can you tune into that will help you inhabit the sharp point of the present?"
ARIES (March 21-April 19). To merely fulfill the basic requirements of a role is not fun or interesting enough as far as you're concerned. You act with the intention of feeling something.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A presence has you fortifying your boundaries. The force that threatens your territory may be aggressive, assertive or very soft and kind. The latter is the most dangerous of the three.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are drawn to elegance and repelled by extravagance. Beauty and usefulness are intertwined in your aesthetic rules — rules you are not entirely aware of even as you closely stick within their guidelines.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Do you want the work that supports your life or the life that supports your work? Much will depend on how in love you are with your work — or your life, for that matter. This will be a point of ponderance today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). While it may not be ideal, it is certainly possible to launch a rocket without a launching pad. If the ground is flat enough and substantial enough to bear the scorch marks of your extreme heat, it will work.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Once upon a time, you knew what you wanted and you went all-in, with mostly successful effect. Now, what you most want is another person's success. It's a tricky thing to go all-in on. Offer support without interference.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Faith is not solely the domain of the religious, though rituals do help to fortify and vitalize faith. Create your own rituals to weave your belief into your psyche and daily life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If it's appealing to you, then it will appeal to others, too. And right now, you've a gift for initiating, so start something interesting and include as many people as possible.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you don't feel completely understood, maybe that's because you're not. Parts of you will remain unfathomable. Can you see this as a blessing? Your mystery is one of your many gifts to the world.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People want to connect with you, but you have to show them how. How can you present yourself so they learn quickly who you are? It's a work in progress. You make tweaks with every new person you meet.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There's something you're working on — a feeling you want to process or an artistic impulse begging to be expressed. It's something worth making time and spiritual space for.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Welcome inspiration but not control. The more charismatic someone is, the more susceptible you are to their influence over your direction. Don't let that happen. Cling to your vision.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 22). You're striving for a certain accomplishment and will not rest until it's done. Your determination is unmatched and people will turn to you to make things happen for them too, which you should definitely charge for. As for the more mundane responsibilities, you approach with art and whimsy attracting premium playmates. Leo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 5, 28, 14 and 36.
COSMIC QUESTION: "I'm thinking of hiring a medium to connect me to my uncle, who passed five years ago. I'm wondering things about my father's family that my father either doesn't remember or doesn't want to tell me. Do you think it's a good idea, or am I just drudging up something that helps no one? Another thing is that my uncle was a great investor and I want stock tips."
If the medium is reputable and you have the money to go, then it sounds like an adventure. At the very least, it will be interesting, perhaps providing a point of insight and maybe a good story for later. Just don't forget that people who have left this realm don't necessarily get any special new insights just because they are on the other side. Dead people are dead people — with the fallible insights and prejudices that come part in parcel with humanity. The deceased do not earn some special position just because they are no longer breathing oxygen. Also, your uncle may not be up to date on stock trends.
The other thing to consider when paying someone to communicate with your ancestor is that it's only one way to go. There's also the do-it-yourself option: You have equal access and need only to call to the spirit world, ask your question and open your mind to the answers.
