It's an excellent time to tackle what you would have procrastinated just yesterday. The Capricorn moon likes to get things done with as little fuss, resistance or drama as possible. This moon lends just enough emotional control for maximum efficiency, but not enough to make life boring.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Life becomes more precious and beautiful to you when you're around a certain someone. This is mainly because being around this person heightens your awareness and makes you slow down and tune in.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have the solution to your problem. This is hard to believe in the moments when you lack self-confidence or feel stuck or oppressed. Cultivate faith and optimism. It will help you move through the valleys and find answers.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). At this point, life seems so uncertain that you don't even want to set goals. Take a break. Relax and rejuvenate. Everything will feel more joyful when you do.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). In a sense, you are "shopping" for new alliances today. Whether what you need most is a friend, a business partner or a romance, be sure to choose the person, not the credentials.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have ideas, and now they are stringing themselves together in your head to formulate an improved vision of the future. You could be the one to open a new heaven for your loved ones.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Wanting something to be finished will not make it so. You're well aware of the steps involved, though making yourself go through them will be a challenge. Give yourself some incentive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The written word will be your most powerful form of communication. So wherever possible, put your ideas down in writing. People need to remember your words and attribute them to you. Write on!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Stand back, take a breath, and see your situation anew. Are you handing someone power that rightfully belongs to you? Your self-respect is a renewable resource. You may have given a little of it away, but you can get it back.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A relationship is forming. You can't quite frame it in your mind at this point, but ideas and feelings are coming together, and by the end of the week, you'll have a clear picture of what you want to do next.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have influence, but you won't know about it unless you take action. Make a move. Suddenly, someone follows your lead, and then another, and another.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you say in a group will matter immensely. The compliments you give people in public will mean more than the ones you give privately. Singing a loved one's praises publicly is a good way to build relationship points.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your goals are doable. What you want is very much in line with all that is possible for you. Still, you need to streamline your efforts. Cut out the fat. Make every attempt to be lean and mean in your approach.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 9). You have amazing powers of visualization. You'll paint your ideal world in words and images and then take steps to make it real. You'll network and put together a lucrative deal over the next seven weeks. A turn of events gives you an unexpected advantage in June. November brings a journey that's good for your family. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 39, 1 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My husband and I are Librans and are simpatico except when our scales are tipping in the opposite directions! Advice?"
Lovely Libras understand that getting along all of the time isn't what relationships are all about. Partnerships are seldom 50/50 contributions, and they don't need to be in order to work well. Sometimes they are 60/40 or 90/10 — or who knows? The constant tallying gets tiresome. Two Libras in love sometimes need to remind each other that it's the long view that matters. Things usually do balance out in the long run when each party has loving intentions. When there is tension in the relationship or when expectations are not being met, what's usually needed is perspective. A little time and distance can do wonders to ease frustrations. Venus-ruled Libra natives can be extremely generous, forgiving and romantic, too. They make excellent partners to each other as they understand the art of diplomacy, are willing to compromise and can see the value of making another person happy even if it sometimes comes at their own expense.
