The Gemini moon brings the sprinkles and cherries to the ice cream social of life. The twin lunar beams will give casual encounters that little something extra to make the connections sweeter. The sense of friendly ease tossed over the next three days allows for moments of magic and delight.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The lesson of fizzy soda, sparklers and flash pots? Excitement and brevity go together like Siamese twins. Yes, they can be separated, but usually not without great risk of terrible consequences.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The pen is in your hand, and the page is open. You have everything you need to write the story of your life. Please don't take the page numbers literally. This one can go out of order — if you dare.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The friendly, sweet and giving person is going to help you, and so will the curmudgeon and the negative Nellie and all the others. State what you need and help will come.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you're new, it seems like all the people understand a thing that you don't. The funny thing is that no one on the inside understands any more than you do.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You would have told the other person so many different things if you weren't in the position you're in. But positioning is everything. You'll hold something back out of compassion. Be proud you have it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). "I'm not giving in to security under pressure/ I'm not missing out on the promise of adventure/ I'm not giving up on implausible dreams/ Experience to extremes." — Neil Peart, Virgo
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll do just about anything just to see your loved one's smile, though there are plenty of undoable things, too, and there's the consideration that some smile-producing things are also just not that healthy or sustainable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The work scene will be highly competitive, but you're a contender. As long as you show up having done your homework, you will win. The best wins are group wins, so involve as many as you can.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There is no saving anyone right now. You can help, and you can love, but saving is a thing that each person must do individually, at least for today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are now ready to wake up to something hidden in your psyche that you've long ignored. Relationships bring both joy and sorrow, but you benefit so much from them that you're even happy for the sorrow.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are playing a sporting game that has nothing to do with sports at all, and the ball is in your court. Don't overthink it. Know where you want it to go, and keep your eye trained on the destination.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You want a clear instruction for the current problem, but if the universe were really to thunder from the clouds saying, "Do this!" you'd rebel and tell it to stop bossing you around. So try to read and heed the signs.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 1). Applying your talents for the betterment of your family, friends and community will be at the forefront in your goals. With a concentrated and practiced regiment, progress becomes apparent. You'll love where discipline takes you, but build plenty of rewards, breaks and leisure into your life to avoid burnout. Cancer and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 22, 10 and 13.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Two sign changes serve to switch things up this week, and they both occur smack dab in the middle of the week. Wednesday brings a shift for Mercury, which enters Aquarius, the sign of humanity and technology. In the weeks to come, there will be technological leaps forward, inventions made in labs and in private workspaces, breakthroughs funded by big companies, and thousands of innovations of the very smallest and most personal level.
The second sign change comes just a few hours later on Wednesday, which is the change of Venus into Taurus. This is a comfortable and lovely place for the romance planet, and all of her sensual glory shines from this realm. It can be an indulgent time, although our amplified enjoyment of life's offerings might actually lead us in the opposite direction — when we slow down to really luxuriate in the realm of the senses, we actually need less to fill us up. Pleasure can be so elastic! Take advantage of the Venus happening by having what you want, trusting yourself around temptation and exploring your more niche delights.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Justin Bieber has recently opened up to the press about the pressures of fame and touring, and his new coping tools and resources including a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and a brain disorder specialist. Bieber's natal sun, Venus and Saturn are in Pisces, the sign of old souls and sensitive artists. Mercury is in musical Aquarius, and Uranus and Neptune are in the hardworking, business-oriented sign of Capricorn.
