If ever there was a time to develop a sense of togetherness and teamwork, it is now, in the fallout of the Virgo full moon. The Libra moon rallies the troops and assesses the strengths and weaknesses of all the players involved in the mission. What? You didn't know you were on a mission? Tally-ho!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your personal development will be enhanced by a fixed routine. Consider making a weekly appointment with someone. The once-a-week structure could make big things happen quickly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Unfortunately, you're not going to magically end up with your big reward in hand. So you'll have to make specific plans regarding how you will achieve your aim. Fortunately, you'll enjoy this process.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Go back to a project you abandoned. You now have a terrific sense of perspective. You'll find that you enjoy shaping and honing what's already there much more than coming up with something new.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe it's something you consume, a show you watch or a person you rely on, but there's some "favorite" of yours that you might be using a little too often. You'll have the willpower to tone it down.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Bad memories will have a way of lingering today. Past slights will seem fresh. You may be on the defensive, and it will be far too easy to lash out for reasons that have nothing to do with the current circumstance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though it may be tedious for you, there's a certain pleasure in getting things right. So you'll go over your work again and again until you're absolutely sure that there are no mistakes in it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Be realistic about your feelings. Think of what — or who — really interests you. You're not going to have the stamina to go forward with an endeavor about which you feel merely lukewarm.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Part of you will be feeling stubborn; the other part will be feeling responsible. So the responsible you will have to coax the stubborn you along the path you know to be right.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Losing your enthusiasm is worse than losing your way. If either gets lost in the confusion of this day, don't hesitate to gather a search-and-rescue effort together and go find them.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Persistence pays off. You might astound yourself now, doing something you never thought you would do. Know that you're capable of this and much more.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Beware of people who talk like they know everything. If you were to check all the facts, things wouldn't quite add up. On the other hand, there's a modest, under-confident someone who could really help you now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your subconscious efforts are even more effective than your conscious efforts. So it's important that you know what they are. Whatever is happening now in your life, it's a reflection of what's going on inside you.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 9). You'll forge new connections and enjoy the lightness, bonding and potential these relationships bring. But the most important tie you will make is the one with your higher self, ever present and growing stronger. In June, destiny meets you at every corner. July is fantastic for finances. Family makes you proud in August. Gemini and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 2, 14, 49 and 19.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Wild ideas lead to brilliant plans. A lot goes from brain to mouth this weekend; discount nothing. TAURUS: The stars favor you, so don't let it go to your head. Be kind. GEMINI: The plot wouldn't go the same way without you. You're more important than you think, so speak up. CANCER: The one you love might be aloof, but know that you are on this person's mind nonetheless. LEO: Atmosphere is everything this weekend. If you want someone to love you, make sure you're standing in a pretty light, figuratively speaking, of course. VIRGO: The one who purports to know everything actually knows very little. Don't be suckered. LIBRA: You're lovely and favored. Use your powers wisely. SCORPIO: What you want to be accepted is so foreign to your love. Take time in explaining yourself. SAGITTARIUS: The gods of love favor you now. Your passion makes you a charismatic force. CAPRICORN: Claim your space, and let no one infringe on what's yours. AQUARIUS: Friendship might be better than romantic love. PISCES: You're all smiles until the check comes. Look at it twice. Don't pay for what you didn't order.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Libra and Pisces are very much in tune with each other, experiencing a good deal of harmony, peace and understanding. It all sounds rather groovy, and indeed it is. These two drift through adversity this weekend with fingers intertwined, gripping passionately but never so tightly that the other one couldn't get away if he or she really wanted to.
