The leaders don't always show up. To some extent, we will all be charged with being our own coaches. This means we have to train ourselves, which is best done by first creating an environment in which we can improve. The Aries moon aspects indicate many challenges. But if you focus on the practice, the match will take care of itself.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Beware of collective delusion. When you have an unpopular opinion, it's easy to think that you're the delusional one — when you're actually the only one who understands the reality of what's going on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take a picture of the moon or a sunset and it becomes clear that life often looks a lot better than the picture of life. But then there are times when the picture looks better. You'll go out of your way because of a photograph.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In the animal kingdom, enemies are simply other creatures competing for resources. In human terms, enemies seem more nefarious. Are they? Figure out if the opposition is sinister or just competing for the same thing as you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll be wise to spend several hours cultivating good fortune by way of talking with others, sharing your heart, serving, helping and cleaning and clearing your environment to make way for good luck to drop on in.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Friendship is the most valuable thing that the day has to offer. A spontaneous opportunity to connect will pop up and it will be worthwhile for you veer from your original plan and be social.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You've been paying attention. Your best guess is a strong one. Act on it. Don't talk about it first or you could talk yourself out of it. Action will begin a fortunate chain reaction.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll gravitate to the strong personalities, the intimidating presence, the people who are sure to impress and even intoxicate you. Get ready: They're sure to throw you off balance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Dissatisfaction is part of the human experience, so don't blame yourself or anyone else. Offer yourself some kindness, and wish the best for everyone around you. You'll be surprised how that turns it around for the better.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can only experience life from your own point of view. So even though you know that you are not the center of the universe, you have to live as though you are, taking the very best care of yourself that you can.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Socrates said, "I know only one thing: that I know nothing." And if Socrates (widely regarded as one of the finest minds of antiquity) knew nothing, then you really have to excuse yourself for being under-informed today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This is not a game you win once and become champion of forever. Life's battles are fought over and over. Truly, some of them are getting old. But persist anyway.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don't skimp on the details today. It's important to be faithful in your attention and commitment to small things because it's the small things that will build your strength.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 6). Your life will reflect certain trends of the time, though in many ways you'll be a thought leader. You'll be heard, admired, followed and loved. The money is extra good in September and November. You'll travel to win deals and more in 2019. Personal vitality will increase because of the change you make in February. Gemini and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 33, 28 and 40.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You'll set up a social pattern that will repeat hundreds of times. So pay attention to how it's going. Make it something worth repeating. TAURUS: It may feel as though a relationship has devolved to the point of parallel play — no intersections. Fix it. Shake it up. GEMINI: You'll bump into someone. This isn't a random meeting; it's kismet. Make it count. CANCER: Don't let love blind you. Always be paying attention, and you'll avoid trouble and maximize opportunity. LEO: Once you decide to outdo the competition, that's exactly what will happen. VIRGO: Past love gone wrong has prepared you to approach romantic opportunities of this weekend the right way. LIBRA: Build trust with every move, because that's what's needed to make this love work. SCORPIO: Seizing the chance to be generous with your love will be its own reward. SAGITTARIUS: You're comfortable with people of all ages and, more importantly, comfortable with your own age. CAPRICORN: Because you are receptive and a stellar listener, you'll get a golden opportunity to share your heart. AQUARIUS: It takes courage and emotional intelligence to feel your feelings to the extent that you do. PISCES: Slightly out of your element is a beautiful place to be this weekend.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Both Taurus and Cancer have a strong sense of home. Taurus finds it in daily habits and routines; in sensual delights such as foods, scents and decor; and in the financial aspects of nesting. For Cancer, home is in creating an experience of comfort and security, and home is also in the hearts of loved ones. The Taurus moon reflects the Cancer sun, and these two will find home in each other.
