They made a list of all the things they judged and abhorred and then hashtagged the list: "#NotInMyHouse." The only trouble was, by writing the list, they allowed these ideas to take up valuable real estate in their minds. Perhaps they (and all of us, under the Sagittarian archer's moon) should focus on the wanted instead of unwanted.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll be working on a mystery. You already know who did what, but you don't yet know why. You may never know why. Nonetheless, the exercise of trying to figure it out is what will bring you a degree of enlightenment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your frustration is a good sign. It's part of a learning process. You're on the verge of doing something different. You may need to tinker. You may need a different approach. Step back and listen to what life is trying to tell you here.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You won't like every single person, but if you limited yourself to dealing with only those you liked, you would be hurting yourself. Goldmines of opportunity will be hidden inside business with people you don't fully click with.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The socially acceptable thing earned its status by being widely used and understood. What's new, by definition, won't fit that category. So don't use public acceptance as your gauge. Let your heart be the judge instead.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's a repeat of something that happened last week, except it's like the negative print version: The darks are light; the reds are green. The shape is the same, but it doesn't look the same at all. Does it still have the same meaning?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today you've a deep humility and a care and love for others. It's coming through in your interactions, especially since you've decided that you don't have to take the lead.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). All the things you tried that didn't work have taught you much more than just "what doesn't work out." You will be able to apply these lessons. Relax. You're only getting better.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's a fine day to develop the sense of mystery that already surrounds you by adding layers of silence and secrecy. It's not always the right approach, but today it will grow your power.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Language changes. Fashion changes. Music changes. There is no right way, only what's in style now and what's not. Are love and relationships also matters of style? It's a theme to consider today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In a perfect world, those close to you would sense what you need and kick in help, validation and support. But it's not perfect. It's a world of people born selfish. Getting them to pay attention comes with the territory. Good luck.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In the business world, one-on-one meetings are known for being hard to get right. Groups find their own equilibrium, but the one-on-one dynamic is trickier. Good thing you're a natural. You'll put someone at ease today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Today's questions: Who gets to know you and who never will? Should you remain discreet or speak up? The thing about sharing how you feel is that it's going to change — and then what about the update?
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 9). This solar return will change what you do, not who you are. If anything, you'll become more of who you are as you commit to what's really giving you energy and cut away the extraneous activities that don't pay you back in any meaningful way. A celebration will award you in May. A case or deal gets wrapped up in August. Leo and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 40, 33, 21 and 1.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Your relationships will be as sweet and airy as light whipped cream. TAURUS: The strength of a bond will depend on the pacing of the relationship. GEMINI: The one who helps you does it out of love. Maybe out of attraction, too. Is that OK with you? CANCER: Relationships are sometimes about power when they don't really need to be. Everyone can win. Figure out how. LEO: No one knows your mind or heart, but someone is feeling you now and has a pretty good guess about it. VIRGO: Don't deflect praise. Take the win and build on it. LIBRA: Someone already likes you, but when you show your talent, the affection deepens. SCORPIO: If you feel like someone wants to control you, you'll resist. SAGITTARIUS: It's not like you have a roadmap for the ground you want a relationship to cover, but you're starting to get a more organized sense of things. CAPRICORN: Taking a person out of the usual context of the relationship will be most enlightening. It could change everything! AQUARIUS: No matter how much someone wants to grow, it's tough for people to hear about their own shortcomings. Instead, you'll praise what's working. PISCES: Open and honest communication won't follow a rigid formula. Throw out the rules.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the Capricorn moon takes the torch from Sagittarius, the relationship that's highlighted will be between Capricorn and Pisces. It's a bond that feels familial. These two must keep vigilant not to behave as though they were the parents, children or siblings of one another: It's not good for love. Nonetheless, a strong and comfortable bond will form very quickly in the next 48 hours.
