Boom/Bust Lunar Antics

By Holiday Mathis

The lunar antics, which involve strife with Mars and flirting with Jupiter, will make this point: Financial markets aren't the only environments that experience the boom/bust phenomenon. It's a trend in almost any interest, relationship and endeavor. Knowing that there are going to be highs and lows can help us appreciate the season we're in.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you feel that a relationship has an imbalance of power, shore up the difference. There are many different ways to account for power and points of leverage that are not immediately obvious.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll fill needs that people didn't even realize they had. It's also possible that you create need by providing something very interesting and getting people used to having it in their lives.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're like a hybrid car today, except you'll toggle between more than two kinds of fuel to keep your wheels spinning. Energy sources may be emotional, inspirational, nutritional and caffeinated.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Among the most primal body language cues for engendering trust and projecting charisma is the often-overlooked show of hands — open palmed, proving the lack of a rock or spear. Use this and make a friend.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Trying to change too many habits at once almost always fails, especially if the environment stays the same. Your winning move involves taking on one behavioral change at a time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When things seem harder than they should be, figure out why. Ask, "How can I make this easier?" You might be surprised at how a few decisions can change the whole game.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don't ask other people for green lights. Green lights don't work that way. Usually, they are on timers. And often, when you hit one, you'll start to hit them all. Or you can always take the backroads.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's fortifying to spend time with people who appreciate you or to spend time doing the things that really make you appreciate yourself. The opposite is detrimental.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As much as you'd like to release something into your past, it's not going to happen until you're really ready. Accept your emotions. Feeling them fully is part of becoming ready.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Relationships don't fix the problems of individuals, though they may distract from those problems or cloak them in a different garb. Each individual must ultimately solve for their own soul.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You sense when people aren't telling the whole truth, but you often don't press the issue out of a respect for privacy or a realization that there's little to gain by making people uncomfortable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your positive attitude is grounded in this: Everyone is capable of improving. So whether a person is innately talented or disadvantaged is really beside the point and certainly not worth dwelling on.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 24). Love is the star this year. You want a deep relationship and you'll get it; you're able to be vulnerable and open to enrichment. You'll connect with the emotions of others because you take the time to understand your own emotions better. You'll soar on the confidence of a personal or professional win in late August. Libra and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 22, 31, 45 and 17.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You are genuinely curious about people and not preoccupied by what they can do for you. They feel your sincerity. TAURUS: Probably the ones who stifled certain emotional dynamics in you didn't mean to do it. You can stop walking on eggshells now. That drama is over. GEMINI: You will relate to people on an emotional level and enjoy reciprocity. CANCER: You don't always have to push the edges of your comfort zone. Sometimes it's enough to shine where you know you're strong. LEO: Past relationships have taught you a lot, and the next three days will bring opportunities to apply your knowledge. VIRGO: Dial that 10 fantasy down to a mundane two and you'll give reality a chance to impress you. LIBRA: Fun conversation is improvisational and thus follows the cardinal "yes, and..." rule of improv. Agree with and build on what the other person says. SCORPIO: You are susceptible to the moods of your loved ones and will proactively make efforts to keep up the cheer. SAGITTARIUS: A good humor match overrides many other forms of compatibility. CAPRICORN: You'll enjoy the preshow of a date and all that goes into looking wondrous. AQUARIUS: You have an expectation of yourself that is much higher than anything others are expecting from you. PISCES: Conversations get interesting when you free-associate on the spot with impressive creativity.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Gemini and Taurus are playful together. They laugh with each other and turn up the fun dial of whatever room they enter. For this reason, when quarantines are lifted, Gemini and Taurus couples are at the top of the invite list. It's also worth mentioning that these two both love to shop and enjoy getting ready for an event even more than they enjoy the event itself.
