First the sun forms a trine to Jupiter, and then the moon does a similar auspicious triangle dance, followed by another exchange of good fortune between the moon and the sun. In short, the hits keep coming. What is it you want, then? Whether you hold your arms wide or your hands cupped or your mind open, luck will find a way to drop right in.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're full of ideas, and they're not just coming from your brain; your heart, stomach and entire body will generate wisdom worth acting on today, often impulsively. Trust yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Get organized. Organization just might be the stuff of life. From the order of your DNA to the order of your schedule, how things are organized will define, build, change, bind or free you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you're stuck, change of any sort is improvement. Even if all you change are your shoes or the order in which you do things, today that will be enough to help you wiggle free from perceptive limits.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Admirers of your work will tell you that you should market yourself widely — flattering, yet you needn't trouble yourself with it now. As you further develop your talent, it will speak for itself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Meeting in restaurants is fun, but you never really know a person until you see that person in different settings, the most enlightening being the setting of home base.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If there's one thing you can do to improve your life, business and relationships, it's to see things from another person's point of view. This ability is the key that opens doors in every area of your life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will accomplish what you couldn't quite finish yesterday. The timing wasn't right, or you just weren't comfortable enough to open your mind to the possibilities.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you thought would be a quick project is turning into a real epic novel of a venture. Still, this is doable. Even if you "hit the wall," it's not going to stop you. You're like the Hulk. Walls are meant for breaking through.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll use your talent for matching people with fortuitous opportunities. This is so much fun for you, takes almost no effort at all and pays you later in delight and other currencies.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Being bored is its own kind of terrible, yet there's something great about it, as you are seldom more creative than you are just after being truly, deeply and profoundly bored.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Any sort of progress feels good, whether it's sweeping a floor or advancing a personal or business endeavor. The goal itself doesn't really matter as much as the feeling of forward momentum.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). All the money looks alike, but it doesn't feel the same. Money you earn seems somehow more valuable than money you get in other ways, and you'll spend it accordingly.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 14). You'll do what you set out to do. It's among your most successful years! Note that the higher you fly the more important it will be to constantly question yourself. Surround yourself with people who are strong enough to give you the truth, and provide the psychological safety they need to be able to do so. Scorpio and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 40, 3, 17 and 44.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Backup plans often take up more room than we think. They're like a computer program you never use that sits there occupying valuable megabytes that could be spent on a program you actually would use. With Mercury entering young Aries comes a streak of boldness. Then Venus follows suit, stoking the passion fire. Considering this zesty cosmic injection of courage, it's a fine time to let go of a "just in case" scenario that may be adding unnecessary baggage to your emotional or physical world and creating lag and cumbersome karma. Commit more deeply to your No. 1 focus and throw yourself into the daring adventure of it.
Another thing to consider as communication planet Mercury explores these early stages of Aries is the impact of ever-evolving language. Every generation comes up with its own lingo to describe, explain, express and make sense of its experience. The outsiders have to work to understand it, and that's the whole point. In this way, words can act like a gate. Recognize the power of terms as group identity markers, and stay open to understanding and assimilating fresh coinage.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Abigail Breslin is currently filming "Zombieland: Double Tap" with an all-star cast that includes Emma Stone and Bill Murray. The feisty "Little Miss Sunshine" star is sheer Aries, born when the sun, Mars and Saturn were all in the sign of the warrior spirit. Whether one is fighting zombies or is horrifying pageant moms, this much Aries energy in a chart spells one thing: fearless.
