In spite of Mercury's retrograde and the wishy-washy emotional weather radiating from a highly sensitive Pisces sun, problems can be averted and complications can be sorted out with minimal drama during this highly practical Capricorn moon cycle. Work and relationship matters can be handled unemotionally and to excellent results.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Be willing to ask yourself intriguing questions, such as: What are you looking forward to? The answer will be like an arrow pointing to your talents, personal strengths and life ambitions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Telling and hearing too much may be a problem. The good news is that it means people want to share with you, and you want to share with them, too. The bad news is that too much sharing gets tedious.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be patient enough to do what it takes to solve a problem. Go deeper. The first answer that's given to you may not be the best. Keep asking "What else?" and "How else?"
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's a good time for introspection, honesty and attention to the quieter needs of your soul. The outside world has no other choice but to reflect back to you what's happening with your inner life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Children have to learn that life is better with fewer sweets, less television and more fresh air. And you, playful Leo, are childlike enough now to need and heed the same lessons.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may not be entirely pleased with yourself, but punishment is unnecessary and, in fact, would be counterproductive. Emphasize your positive characteristics, and try to ignore the behaviors you'd like to be rid of.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may feel caught in between short- and long-term thinking. It's actually a wonderful place to be. Too much long-term thinking is no fun, and thinking only in the short term is foolish. So enjoy this in-between state for now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's an event coming up, and it will go better for you if you start making plans now. Let yourself free-associate about how you want this to go. Gather influences and talk with others about what's coming.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Boundary issues may arise. You may feel like someone is giving unwanted advice or infringing on your privacy. Stand up for yourself. Quite simply, you want to be around people who let you be yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Gather information. Get clarity on all communication. You are mighty intuitive now, but you'll learn more by asking than by assuming you already have the answers.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will get the chance to practice the fine art of compassionate detachment. You will show that you care about another person without getting overly caught up in the person's life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Moodiness can be a sign of a controlling person. If you can avoid those who ride a mood rollercoaster, do it. If not, then at least be aware of your reaction to those who use their moods to manipulate others.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 16). You have an amazing gift of adaptability this year, and you'll stretch, flex and grow yourself in order to meet the changing patterns of life. April shows you making money in a different way. You'll love the artsy and intellectual influences that come in May. July brings your chance to show the world your talent. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 17, 26, 12 and 4.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Discover one of your love's favorite childhood memories. TAURUS: You'll slowly become more like the person you want to attract, and this person will feel increasingly comfortable around you. GEMINI: Needy, clingy people make you nervous, so you will extract yourself from suffocating situations. CANCER: Someone will pass your test and prove worthy of your attention. LEO: Let a loved one win an argument whether or not this person is correct. It's not worth the fight. VIRGO: You have an increased need for entertainment. Funny, lively people interest you most. LIBRA: You are successfully anchored in the mind of a potential love, and this person will definitely be thinking of you this weekend. SCORPIO: Someone has a crush on you, and you have an inkling who. SAGITTARIUS: You may have to constantly reassure someone of your love. How tiring. CAPRICORN: You really don't have to prove anything to a potential love. You've already won this person over. Don't sell it when it's sold. AQUARIUS: You may grow impatient with a loved one who can't make up his or her mind. PISCES: Your magical, optimistic energy shows in all you do.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Pisces and Capricorn hit a nice groove now that the sun and the moon are in those signs respectively. Venus is also in Capricorn, amplifying the attraction. Capricorn's even nature is ever so pleasantly upset in regard to Pisces, who has a way of reaching into Capricorn's world and waking up a dormant sense of romance. This weekend, it will be as though each soul sings the other's favorite song.
