Strawberry Moon

The moon is big as a berry in the juicy-sweet skies of Sagittarius. This is the realm of adventure and perspective-seeking. Pluck the low-hanging fruit, and then climb the tree of life as high as it goes. Grand views empower and humble. Adding to the full moon's glory is the tease of a lunar eclipse. We appreciate best what we know can be taken from us.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's not only hurt people who hurt people. It's kind and loving people, well-meaning people, people with the best interests of others at heart. Humans are imperfect. Love is an endless act of forgiveness.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today's situation is sweet, and there are ever-richer layers to this experience-cake. However, as it goes with desserts, too much of a good thing can be worse than none of it. Pace yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's a day of bright ideas. You will energize different areas of your life with vitalizing agents such as useful tools, surprisingly efficient methods, beauty, humor and creativity.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't have to do a lot more than just show up ready for anything. In fact, trying to do too much will only detract from all you have to give. Your presence is a gift beyond measure.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There's no need to make people recall what they promised to you, respect what you do for them or remember you in general. Instead, get busy making sure that no one has a chance to forget you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your ambition is not a rejection of who you are right now; it's part of your wonder. You are a person whose pockets are lined with the seeds of tomorrow.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will want to know about you. Though you see the value in keeping mystery alive. If knowledge is power, then you'll be more powerful as you hold back some of the information.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In addition to fun, your prospect has love, resources and inspiration to offer you. Would you believe this is only the start of it? There's much more to be explored here.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This is your day. You'll hit the green lights, get in the right grocery store line, find the prime parking space. The little things that go right are signs that big things will go right, too.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your unique qualities are so attractive, and the person who sees this is not only a fan but someone you will love to spoil with the attention only you can give.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There's no end to a circle. To be included in one can feel wonderfully secure or like entrapment. With circles, you have to break in and break out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes it seems that your idealistic imagination is at war with the reality of a situation. Not today, which brings a brilliant blend of the practical and the sublime.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 5). This trip around the sun is a joy-mission that can't be derailed! It helps that your supportive team includes inspiring teachers. The workload will get intense with just the challenge to help you rise to the top of an organization. You're particularly stellar at knowing how to package and sell, which will be lucrative for all. Scorpio and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 22, 28 and 10.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Take a break from emotional work and make plans to be near people who are easy to be with. TAURUS: Because you won't worry too much about making impressions, you'll make an overwhelmingly favorable one. GEMINI: This heart-longing! It's a nameless craving for nothing in particular and everything at once. CANCER: Words are overrated. Let silence work for you. LEO: Without meaning to, you have steadily raised your level of expectation of someone and this person will continue to rise to the occasion. VIRGO: You're going to get your way whether you pretend to collaborate or not because you really do have the best ideas for the relationship. LIBRA: You are attracted to success and will create success in kind to attract others. SCORPIO: Your thoughtfulness will land sweetly now and even better later in the lens of nostalgia. SAGITTARIUS: Tell people about what you want. You'll be surprised by who can help you get it. CAPRICORN: Laughter and breezy conversations will be yours in abundance. It's restorative! AQUARIUS: There's a performative aspect of dating, and it's wise to play it as natural and subtle as possible. PISCES: You've a tender heart for others but you're incredibly tough on yourself. You'll be wise to split the difference.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the full Sagittarius moon flirts with the Gemini sun from across the sky, sparks fly between these two signs. They could be on opposite sides of a room or the globe and everyone in the middle will get a noticeable charge from the energy zipping between them. Venus warns these two not to be too quick to join forces, as there's so much deliciousness in the buildup.
