Lunar Outreach

People don't always get to see the impact they have on others, which can occur at a distance or so subtly it goes undetected, even while making a remarkable difference. Sometimes, it takes people years to recognize an effect. With the Sagittarian lunar influence, recognition isn't the point. What matters is good intentions and right outcomes.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll float to the highest level of conduct, as though life were an endless formal dinner. There's great effort in creating an effect of restraint and refinement, which is why more people don't bother. You'll be richly rewarded.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Being able to take a long view of things will save you from future discomfort. There are a lot of things you could take on. Consider what it would mean for your next few days and far beyond.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Once you decide that you are going to devote yourself to making progress, you'll stick to an endeavor until you get where you want to go. The game has started. To delay is to lose any advantage you might have.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Consider that your most powerful asset is your reputation. So anything that lifts it will probably be worth the attention, effort and money that goes into the process.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll have a strong first impression to a situation. Note it — even formally with an actual note — but don't act on it. There is more to learn here, and you're playing a long game.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Success will be simple when you recognize what is and is not under your control, and then apply yourself only to the first group of circumstances. Applying yourself to the second group brings nothing but frustration.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There will happen the sort of heated situation in which the best response is no response. The coolest person will literally be the one with the most chill attitude.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You often have to comply to the authority in a situation, which is what makes opportunities like yours today special. You'll call the game and make the rules.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In days of old, the black sheep was shunned by the herd. Now the black sheep goes on the internet and finds a virtual herd with numbers so strong, the black sheep are actually the majority.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your choices do not have to be dictated by things like age, race, gender or even by how much money you have in your pocket. Waste no time accounting for limits. Go straight to the workaround.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Spite is very unattractive to you. The stronger stance is always the most compassionate one. Boundaries sometimes have to be laid down, and it's the spirit of the gesture that will matter.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The issues that come up today are the sort you don't have to reason your way through. Give your logical mind a break. Meditate, shower, drive, walk or sleep on it instead.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 8). This solar return is like a permission slip to depart from conformity, delight in novelty and oddity, and generally investigate niche areas of interest. There are many who will be enthralled by your receptivity and will strive to delight you. In turn, you'll share your world and brighten the lives of new and old friends. Gemini and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 30, 2, 22 and 45.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You may display your difference from others as a signal that you're not so easily summed up. It takes time and attention to get to know you. TAURUS: Waiting is not an option. Act on what you feel. GEMINI: You will bond over shared enthusiasms — aesthetic, epicurean or athletic in nature. CANCER: Once you establish a strong communication bond, the rest will come easily. LEO: Start with honesty and everything will go easy from there. VIRGO: To really test whether you can build a relationship, you have to start building it. LIBRA: You'll look back fondly on the strange unfolding of this romance. SCORPIO: You will enjoy learning the culture of different people and will be well received because you are so respectful of customs that are foreign to you. SAGITTARIUS: You'll finally get an answer to something that's been perplexing you. CAPRICORN: You are susceptible to seduction. You don't need to pay a steep cost to attain the result you desire. AQUARIUS: Attractiveness is an inside job. You'll do the inner work and the rest follows naturally. PISCES: The world seems brighter when you're able to give something special to someone.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Sagittarius and Taurus come across as an unlikely twosome because they can be so different from one another. There are big variations at play with everything from worldview to where they are on the spectrum of introversion to extroversion. However, once they take on a joint project, it is clear why they can work so well. Each fills in gaps for the other, and their combined efforts can make for a very unified front indeed.
