The new Aries moon is a symbol for proactivity. Turn over the status quo. Make what you want. Each time you act to create your own destiny, it changes something inside you, adds a block to your internal structure, builds the muscles of your character toward an optimum sense of dignity. It doesn't matter if you win; it matters that you act.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you do 12 things right and one thing wrong, what do you think you're going to dwell on? That's not negativity; it's human nature. Just try and temper it with a soft and gracious attitude toward yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When the energy dips, people will look to you to raise it. So how do you bring up the morale? Remind all how your efforts and theirs are connected to the larger story.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Get around new people and tell them about yourself. They probably won't have the stellar insights you'd like to hear, but you'll come up with new insights anyway as the experience jars you into suddenly seeing yourself differently.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There's much to address. You care about the concerns of others like they're your own. Also, they are your own. Because it's impossible for you to happy when your people are not.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're starting to get excited about something new, and you're not sure if, why and how exactly it makes sense for your life. Just trust yourself. The reasons will emerge.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll be noticed and promoted for being "the most" of something. What will you choose? The most organized? The most articulate? The most helpful? Stick to one thing. Pick the one that suits you best, and double down on it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Whatever thing you hate to do, believe it or not, there's someone in the world who loves it — thrives on it, even. That's why it's best to work in teams. Your team will be a mutual-admiration society.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There will be small ups and downs. Be like the professional poker player. Stay cool. The winning or losing of individual hands is nothing to get too overjoyed about or upset over. It's the long term that matters.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Modern living requires a constant reconciliation of mind, as we humans actively and regularly work against the very things we value. Take a break from the complexity, from railing for or against anything. Stop. Relax. Find peace.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll direct your energy so productively today because you feel like you're allowed to. You were given the power — or more likely, you just took it, and now you have the control you need to do your job very well.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Concentration on the same task over time will yield results, deep and substantial results, results worthy of the hundreds of little distractions you had to ward off or ignore in order to accomplish that kind of work.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The people below do not need to comply with the people above, because you're not operating in that sort of system. Status is irrelevant. There's a job to do, and it will take many minds coming together to do it.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 5). You are able get much deeper with your projects, and new levels of knowledge and soul will make you richer in the ways that matter. You'll strike up a relationship with an admired someone and become more like this person. New habits improve the flow of your domestic life and your overall mood. Gemini and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 49, 2, 28 and 10.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Casual interests become stronger when both sides make a commitment — not a big commitment, just a big enough commitment to go to the next level. TAURUS: You'll like most the people who make your life easier. It's really that simple. GEMINI: Your parents' relationship is not your relationship, though you have to make conscious decisions to keep from repeating the patterns you knew growing up. CANCER: Repackaging the past doesn't change what happened, but it can change what you do from here. LEO: It's a little backward this weekend. First you'll choose how you want to feel. Then you'll come up with reasons to feel that way. VIRGO: It's always more fun when you're not worried about what the other person thinks of you. LIBRA: Taking care of yourself is an important part of taking care of the relationship. SCORPIO: You're the idea person, or at least you should be this weekend, so hopefully you won't have to fight to get your way. SAGITTARIUS: Keep the spirit of play alive in a relationship. CAPRICORN: If you feel compelled to make promises, take a step back. What's wrong with what you're doing now? Why don't you think it's enough? AQUARIUS: Even the most selfless people can forget to treat one another well. Everyone needs a reminder from time to time. PISCES: Common interests escalate a relationship very quickly.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Aries and Taurus are zodiac neighbors who can have the familiarity of two children who have played stickball together on the same block all their lives. This weekend, the energy turns from playful to serious romantic interest. They are better off when they steer clear of competitive situations, as both are headstrong, although this quality will work well if they play on the same team.
