Mars marches into Aquarius with the agenda of doing some good in the world. The favored means will be technological. Innovators of all kinds will be struck with radical ideas to try, and the grit and resources to follow through until the world is a little changed by what they've produced.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). For today, it's best to get advice from inside yourself. Don't let anyone diagnose your problem, tell you how you should feel or even suggest your next good move. You are the best judge of you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's no flaw, obstacle or reason holding you back. You just need to learn a few little tricks to get yourself into the habits that will pull you unthinkingly forward.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The first step to winning in an environment is to choose environments you're genuinely interested in. Get excited about going, or go where you won't have to fake your enthusiasm.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Athletes aren't expected to play every position, and you shouldn't expect this of yourself either. Play to your strengths. You don't have to make every point in the game. Just help make a few.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you have to guess whether the message will land right, the mood will be conveyed, the point will be made, you're probably on the right track. It's the ones who don't question themselves who are most likely to miss the mark.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People you can laugh with are the treasures of your day. And if you happen to be the one who's making this laughter happen, you'll feel mightily accomplished.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes you feel like you have no control over your emotions, and sometimes your emotions feel like they have no control over you. But today, you and your feelings will be on the same page.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll feel like keeping some of your views to yourself. "Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses." — Plato
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll be drawn to focus on those with needs bigger than your own, and this will unexpectedly brighten you. As your wells of compassion get deeper, your vibes raise higher.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Grudges and ill feelings only get more cumbersome as time passes. In the spirit of lightening up, you'll let go of some old baggage that's been slowing you down.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What one person calls education another calls propaganda, advertising, persuasion and bias. You accept nothing at face value, as almost everything that has a face has a whole body behind it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your goal is not to reach every person. It's to reach the right people. The right people like you immediately and without convincing. If you don't feel the receptivity, move on.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 30). This is a year of uncanny and wonderful connections. Old friendships will be renewed, and new people will feel like old friends. A transformation on the domestic front happens as you invest your time, money, creativity and heart into your home and get back way more than you put in. A big award comes in July. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 45, 4 and 16.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Pisces, and my last few relationships have had a familiar pattern. I dated a Leo who became infatuated with me after our first meeting, and after our first date he immediately asked me to commit. I later found out he was still pining for his ex-girlfriend, so I broke it off, but he continued to pursue me for two years. I then dated a Taurus who became very attracted to me after our first conversation and was very persistent in asking me out. After a year and a half of dating, I learned that his wife is in the process of divorcing him and he has a child. Both these men are older, attractive and very well educated. Will this pattern ever stop? Or am I destined to have relationships like this forever?"
What a cruel enemy destiny would have to be to condemn us to repeat the same patterns forever! Now that you realize the pattern, dear Pisces, it's up to you to seek a different kind of man! I find that men who must have a Pisces within hours of meeting her are possibly not taking her as seriously as her deep soul requires.
