The Cancer moon inspires us to flow with our moods and nurture our emotional side by doing whatever we feel like doing. Trust yourself. You may be inspired to take a break from your usual regimen and find that you are healthy, wealthy and wise in spite of going to bed late and getting up at your leisure.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've always believed that you don't have to know how to do something in order to actually do it. You get an overall sense of things, and you flow with that impulse — a most effective method now.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your halfhearted effort will yield the same result as your wholehearted effort. It's not fair, but it's how things are now. You've put in the time and paid your dues. You've earned the right to perks like this.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're looking for love, and you will find it. Your true love is likely the one who makes you laugh, makes you wish you were better dressed, or makes you dinner.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When it's time to be tough, you'll show no vulnerability. Being able to defend yourself verbally, emotionally, physically, financially and otherwise makes you feel so confident that no one would dare cross you anyway.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your knack for finding things will come into play. You could save the day by simply remembering what others did and said when they themselves cannot seem to recall it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your work has improved so much that you almost hate to look back at the early, awkward stages. You'll notice how far you've come, and so will others. Soak up the praise that's coming!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It might be difficult for you and a partner to agree on financial matters, and your preferences may clash in other small ways, as well. But as long as you still agree on the big picture, you can work things out.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll control your spending and calorie intake. You'll hold your tongue and manage your vices. But you can't help who you love. You'll enjoy the quiet time you spend with your feelings.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You recognize the wisdom in silliness and naive beliefs. You don't mind playing the part of the clown philosopher or eternal optimist if it makes your loved ones feel happier. Seeing their smiles is what it's all about for you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're drawn to upbeat and well-connected people. Shake hands and introduce yourself. By adding only one new friend to your life, you will move your social life to a new level of activity.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You appreciate the one who will interrupt his or her cherished personal routine in order to accommodate you. Even if the effort is small, you don't take this act of love and sacrifice for granted.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The universe teaches patience and acceptance — probably by annoying you. Your tolerance grows. If the whole world could be just 10 percent more tolerant, it would seem as though paradise descended upon us.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 31). The relationship sector of your life gets a blast of exciting energy in April. The one you've known forever sparks new interest and curiosity in your heart. May brings a promotion. In July, you'll realize a personal goal. Your hobbies and talents will move you into a different professional and social realm. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 20, 31, 19 and 28.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "Will Virgo and Aquarius ever work out their differences? I can't seem to get along with even one Aquarius. Maybe I should stay away from them. Are we just incompatible?"
No! You can work it out and live peacefully together. You just have to find what you have in common and build from there. You're both intellectuals, and you revel in the life of the mind — so there's that. You may not agree with each other on the matter at hand, but you can agree that there's value to good discussion and experiencing another person's point of view. From Aquarius, you can learn to be open-minded and make associations freely. Aquarius can learn from you, too: to be discerning and efficient and to rein in the ideas and apply them to the matter at hand.
I have a feeling you've had a love connection with an Aquarius in your past that wounded you so deeply that now you have an aversion to the entire sign. I'd urge you not to cut yourself off from knowing these remarkable individuals. They need you! Aquarius people are givers and humanitarians who need your earth-sign solidity to stay grounded and "real."
