The aliens peeking into earthly goings-on will believe that dogs and children rule the cities, as so many people seem to be led out of their homes to meet the needs and schedules of these small beings. The opportunity that comes with Mercury's move into Pisces will be a greater awareness of what or whom influences and motivates us.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). People will misestimate their own capabilities in one direction or another today, and you can compensate for this by giving yourself wide margins in case of error or exceptional success.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you make a mistake that wouldn't even be counted as such under different circumstances with other people, is it really a mistake? Just because someone takes offense doesn't mean you're being offensive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Being the different one in the group isn't bad, but it does mean you'll have to acquire more credibility and skills than the others. This will be a piece of cake for you once you accept the injustice of it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone who tries to sell everyone will try to sell you. Someone who flirts with everyone will flirt with you. Someone who fools everyone... well, fooling you, not so much.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe there's a time for everything but not necessarily a convenient time, or one that's under your control. If you needed an argument for doing instead of waiting, let this be the one.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While they relax, you decide. While they rest, you push forward. While they sleep, you work. Eventually you'll have to close your eyes, but right now is all about progress.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're not trying to put forward an image other than that which you are, and yet you cannot control what people want to see in you. Your life gets easier once you get savvy about their projections.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are choices to be made about how open or closed you should leave your heart. True, you usually make these decisions unthinkingly, but now is the time to think deeply on the subject.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll be like the moon, influencing from afar, not having to force or even touch anything to affect it, moving and changing everything about life on Earth by simply obeying its own nature.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People under a little pressure will likely go faster, flow freely, achieve to a level that surpasses the one they could do on their own. People under a lot of pressure tend to freeze.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're mild-mannered when appropriate, and that's appropriate for most of the day until brief moments of intense emotions help you go at your purpose harder.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Much good will happen once you release the need to be right. Right is never an absolute. This experience is subjective. There might be a consensus to shoot for, though popularity has little to do with correctness.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 16). The next 12 months bring intermittent drips of magic, a heavenly sign that you're needed, loved and on a good path. Truly, decisions matter beyond what you can comprehend. Family bonds strengthen through honest communication. You've the courage to put bright ideas in motion. A December project will help many. Scorpio and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 44, 42 and 19.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I was born Sept. 27, 1963. I'm bored with my job and life, and I don't feel like I'm progressing at all. Two of my siblings are already in the USA, and my remaining sibling is planning to migrate there. I don't really want to move, but there is nothing more I want here. If I decide to migrate, I would have to study again, probably for the next three to four years, in order to get a working visa and migrate legally. Should I go ahead, and will I do better in another country, or will I have a harder life? I'm still single."
As a Libra with Venus in Libra, too, your love of learning is strong. I believe that whether or not you decide to go, the schooling is just what you need to get out of this rut of boredom. I think some of your schooling will be done through correspondence online, but your work in the classroom will bring you together with inspiring individuals. Libras are so inspired by their environment. Plus, you have a Capricorn moon, which gives you a competitive edge. In short: Enroll in school and your zest for life will return.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Lauren Graham catapulted to stardom as Lorelai Gilmore on the perennially popular "Gilmore Girls," a show that also featured early work for the likes of Melissa McCarthy, Nick Offerman, Jane Lynch and Jon Hamm. With natal Jupiter in Cancer, it's fitting that Graham's breakout role was playing a mother. Look for her in the new musical comedy "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist."
