The sun moves into Taurus, the sign of the bull. The weeks to come will bring matters of finance into full focus as well as whetting an appetite for quality, luxury and things that appeal to our senses in the best sort of way. The weekend also brings Passover, Easter and other beautiful reasons to spend time with those we love.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can have the best answer in the world, but if you're asking the wrong question, it's useless. There's one thing you can do to make the rest either a lot easier or unnecessary. What is it? That's the magic question.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may not think you're doing anything out of the ordinary; however, your kindness and generosity of spirit will make an extraordinary difference in the life of another.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll find yourself at a place in the project where others before you have failed. It's not a reason to be more careful; rather, it's a reason to stay open to different approaches.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are many types of intelligence. You'll find that you're relied upon because you understand more than another person about some things, though there are other sorts of things this person can help you with.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are under no obligation to take anyone to the airport, house out-of-town visitors (even family) or walk your vacationing friend's dog. If you feel weird about turning others down, just blame it on your horoscope.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Do more things you enjoy. Knowing how busy you've been lately, "more things" might consist of "one thing" — a major improvement from ignoring your own need for rest and delight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). With some people you can let your guard down. They're fun, they don't judge, and there's little at stake. With others you need a Secret Service-level security — discreet and always on-the-ready.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Go to the party. You won't regret it, especially if you go without expectation of any particular outcome. Who knows when you're going to get another chance to make someone's night?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It can be very frustrating to spend time doing what doesn't come naturally, but it will be important to do it anyway. Your personal and spiritual expansion depends on it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When people ask for help, sometimes what they really want is attention, belonging or just a general feeling of support. So even if you don't feel like you're doing much, just being there is plenty.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There's a potential for boredom. You can keep it at bay with a challenge and it won't be hard to find just the right sort. Your sporting mood will liven things up for the others, too.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To have the change you want, you're going to have to get your rational mind, emotions and actions all lined up and marching in the same direction. Consider which part of you is out of alignment and guide it back in.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 20). You get clear about what you want and then work on creating systems to keep you on track. People who you once thought of as the opposition will become allies. You'll get a windfall in August. Believe in yourself 10 times more in 2020 because the only thing that can stop you from an accomplishment is a lack of faith. Gemini and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 10, 3, 38 and 40.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "How can I help my son get through his bouts of anxiety? He's a 13-year-old Pisces and a good kid. He's smart and does well in school. He has a few friends who seem to really like him. Lately, he's been getting himself so worked up emotionally that he gives himself stomach cramps. He doesn't want to go to school. At first I thought he was sick with the flu, but I've since learned that he is going through intense bouts of anxiety. Should I let him stay home sometimes so that he can work through his emotions?"
You need the advice of a health care professional who specializes in behavioral techniques to work through anxiety. And because your son is born under the sign of spirit, being open to alternative forms of therapy that work with the spiritual aspects of anxiety will be effective as well. Pisces are highly sensitive and artistic souls. It's wonderful that you are committed to helping your son manage his emotions. From what I understand, it is better to work through the anxiety than to let the anxiety win by retreating from normal life. The right professional will help your son build a tool kit for dealing with the stresses of life.
