To share your experience is a gift to the world, even though the "world" might act like a child opening a wrapped piece of coal on Christmas. Hey, coal would be a fine gift for, say, a barbecue chef or someone running a steam engine. Lunar trine to Mars in Taurus will help you match up your gift to the right audience.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Make suggestions instead of requirements. Express preferences instead of severe declarations. Generally, go easy on yourself. Because if you're too strict today, then you'll rebel, big time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Children's faces transparently reflect the frustrations and displeasures that more mature humans learn to hide. You'll play today's social situation like a pro due to emotional restraint that's been years in the making.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). By the grace of time, you cannot acutely feel the sorrows of yesterday, though you still remember them. A picture from the past will recall a sense of what you were going through and lend perspective on today.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). A power suit doesn't make a person powerful, but it can affect how powerful a person feels. Ask any superhero; the outfit matters. You'll put thought and effort into helping yourself make a confident entrance.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll likely have to spell out the rules for people who don't seem to understand them. You'll never regret being patient, gentle, kind and thorough in this regard.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can learn something from every person you meet, even the ones with far less time on the planet or expertise in a field. With your curious mind, you'll keep picking up new intelligence.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Spiritual alignment has a feeling of openness to it. You might think being so open would leave you vulnerable, but you're attracting what's good and right for you. That forms a different kind of protection.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's a movie-trailer sort of a day. You will learn the gist of the story with a few key clips, get a feel for a person within a short interaction and travel a great distance emotionally in a matter of moments.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It feels good to be considered for certain things, even if you don't quite get the position you were going for. It just shows that you're in your league and that when a good fit comes along, you'll slide right in.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Verbal freedom sometimes causes a backlash. But if you always thought about how your words would affect others, you wouldn't be able to express yourself at all.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll bring out the best in the people you meet today but not out of an act of selfless and conscious goodwill. You bring out the best because that's what you actually see in them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your idea of who you are grows with each situation you take on. So even if what you're agreeing to do seems random and you're not sure why you agreed to do it, you'll still get the gift of knowing a different part of yourself.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 29). The machinery that's been humming along at a moderate pace will suddenly kick into another gear. You're so productive through the next three months that by the end of June, you'll need to regroup, get organized and possibly move the operation elsewhere. Family makes you so proud in August. Capricorn and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 25, 16 and 41.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Tell them what you expect. Skip the preamble and get right to the point. TAURUS: Maybe the reason a relationship is just not there yet is that there is no "there." GEMINI: You'll see hidden parts of people when the pressure is on. CANCER: You know other people better when you know yourself better. LEO: Keeping your opinions to yourself will go far in keeping love alive. VIRGO: If in the body or the soul, defensiveness occurs around sore places. When you encounter it, don't take it personally. LIBRA: Wild ideas lead to excellent plans and beautiful eventualities. SCORPIO: Stay enthusiastic and you'll stay the path to love. Losing joy is akin to losing your way. SAGITTARIUS: A good match will have a similar humor and tolerance for joking around. CAPRICORN: It's more enjoyable to be around people who have fewer requirements. AQUARIUS: You'll get reactions you weren't expecting, and that's the point. It's the magic of real interaction. PISCES: The world can be harsh. Love is a soft place to land.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Aquarius and Aries are the favorite couple of the zodiac this week. And they're so attractive as a twosome to the rest of the zodiac that they'll get very little time alone. Favored activities are party throwing and going, sports events or society happenings. No gathering will be the same without this star couple, and seeing one another as others do will further intensify their bond.
