No mortal is 100 percent loyal. Our very existence depends to some degree on the essential part of human nature called self-interest. Knowing this, we still put our faith in one another and quite often prove trustworthy. And under today's Capricorn moon, you may notice that this is a beautiful part of our existence.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll get the chance to show what you've been up to and get some constructive feedback. If others seem surprised by your work, it's just because you've been doing it so quietly. They had no idea what to expect from you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You sense how others are feeling even when they don't want you to. They may deny their emotions or show you nonverbally that they don't want to talk about it. Let them know that you're ready when they are.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Enjoy this low-stress day. It will be as though someone has stepped in to clear the path before you of potentially problematic situations. Whatever was triggering stress in you will no longer be an issue.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Discuss your plans for the future with everyone who will be involved in making them happen. Assume nothing. Details must be hashed out. Make sure everyone is on the same page.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As a child, you felt that you had more control over your world than you actually did. The trend continues today, as you feel responsible for something that you have no impact on. Step back; just let it be.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your imagination is nearly as real to you as your reality, and it certainly colors all that you experience. The only trouble is, unless you express yourself, you're the only participant in your imagination. Share as much as possible today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some are content to float along unaware of themselves, but not you. You'll wake up to what's going on inside you. Give a name to what you are feeling, and you'll have a greater sense of control over it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It is not your aim to lead the pack, and yet as you do what feels necessary and right (instead of what is convenient), you shine as someone who is deserving of honor and position.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In a moment of complete relaxation, you'll suddenly understand what you've been missing. It's as though you finally have the key that will unlock your success in a certain situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are susceptible to the spark of attraction and wouldn't want it any other way. Being around certain people — indeed, just knowing these people are in the world — is enough to make you feel romantic and vibrant.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even though you are usually sociable and easy-going, new situations and people have you feeling uncharacteristically vulnerable to intense emotionality. This will soon pass.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though you may not be able to control your inner response to what you experience this afternoon, your external reaction will show a level of restraint, positivity and class that will impress many.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 7). A favorite of the cosmic forces, all year you will feel the nearness of helpers seen and unseen. This month you're somewhat of a player when it comes to work. You use your charm and carve out strategic advantages. April brings vivacious new energy. Friends make spectacular proposals in April and August. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 31 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'd like to be able to tell the future, as I imagine all that I could do with the knowledge. How can a Taurus become more psychic?"
For the sensual bull, your intuition will develop as you tune in to and test your various psychic channels. Think about channel surfing on your television and how some programs appeal to you more than others. One channel might hold no interest for you at all, and the next takes but a few seconds to pull you in. Well, this is similar to what happens with psychic channels. Finding the one that speaks to you will start your psychic journey.
For one who favors clairvoyance, psychic messages come in the form of mental pictures. A clairsentient is one who is oriented to receive guidance in the form of a feeling. Do your thoughts seem to communicate with you with an actual voice, music or other sounds? You may be experiencing clairaudience. If you've ever known information on a subject that you don't remember studying at all, you may be claircognizant.
It will be easier for you to open up and experiment when you come from a sense of curiosity, imagination and wonder, but it will be difficult for you to grow your intuition if you're too focused on personal gain.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: As Pam Beesley of "The Office," Jenna Fischer plays an artistic soul with a romantic sense of humor who sometimes backs up her beliefs by taking grand, surprising risks. Perhaps Fischer shares some of these qualities and tendencies with her character, as they are perfectly in line with Fischer's Pisces sun sign. Fischer also has Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in intellectual Aquarius.
