The void-of-course Cancer moon makes for a hazy, emotionally unfocused morning, but the afternoon brings an excited hustle that more than makes up for the soft start. Tonight, people want to feel important under the Leo moon. You can't go wrong doling out compliments to the deserving — and for good measure, to the undeserving.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're a sponge for knowledge now, and you'll learn from those who have what you want. The best teacher, however, is experience. Dive in and go for the hands-on experience whenever possible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you have a plan and follow it, you'll feel productive. You might get even more accomplished by just winging it; however, you won't get the same winning feeling as you do when you follow a plan.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You won't do things in the expected order, but you'll get them done nonetheless. A loved one might find this puzzling or even maddening. But why should you do things like everyone else?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Most people think it's important to be right, but they're wrong about that. You'll be amazed at what happens when you give up the need to be right. Your mind will quiet, and you'll be present to the moment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your standards of style come into play. You may like someone very much, but you won't take the relationship to the next level until you're satisfied that your styles will mesh well.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your skills get rusty if you don't use them. You're in just the mood to freshen up your bag of tricks. Practice that thing you used to be able to do to prevent losing the skill altogether.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Writing to-do items down on paper seems so "old school" in today's high-tech world. However, it's the method that's going to make this day a great success, because it works the best to focus your mind and keep you on task.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll spend a fair amount of time looking at the big picture. To an outsider, you appear to be a person staring into space. They can't see the magnificent wheels turning in your mind.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are still being too hard on yourself, expecting maximum productivity without allowing time to laugh, kick back and recuperate. Don't skip these crucial steps, as they are critical to your success.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have that special charisma that makes people give you their full attention. You will have a receptive audience, so take your sweet time telling a story, giving a performance or explaining what you know.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Once you fully bond with someone, it's next to impossible to separate you permanently from that person. Temporary separations end in you being magnetically drawn back together.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You feel a strong empathy with someone who is going through an intense experience. Your empathy is an expression of love that widens your perception and further opens your heart.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 28). Operating in groups will be a specialty, and you'll be an integral part of a winning team this year. You'll visualize yourself succeeding and then create the same dynamic in your reality. A shift in perspective helps you find a way to make more money in June. November brings exciting visits with those you've missed. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 25, 49, 27 and 16.
STRESS AND YOUR SIGN: Each sign is different when it comes to stress. What one sign considers taxing another finds exciting, and tension remedies vary from sign to sign, as well. How does your sign deal with the more unnerving aspects of life?
PISCES: GOOD STRESS: Limbo Land is the place between places that many people can't bear to think about, let alone experience. The definites of "on" or "off" and "is" or "isn't" are a much more comfortable place to reside than the strange, indefinable expanses that exist in the cracks between those states. Ethereal, open-minded, creative Pisces is fine with the same limbo state that sends others into a spin. Pisces may even enjoy the puzzling, mysterious nature of this land.
BAD STRESS: Being separated from loved ones is what causes Pisces the most stress. This sign is sensitive and is also able to attach to loved ones with a superglue type bond that makes being apart a painful process.
STRESS REMEDY: Pisces relieves stress through artistic expression. Doing this with regularity ensures that Pisces becomes not only calmer and more centered, but quite masterful at whatever craft he or she chooses.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: In grade school, Jay Leno was a prankster who thrilled to the sound of his classmate's laughter, and not much has changed, except that his act and his audience have grown to global proportions. Taurus celebrities are typically masterful at staying grounded even from a perch at the top of the world. Leno is known for being as down-to-earth as he is rich and famous.
