Horoscopes by Holiday

The moon traverses the sign of appetites, which is Taurus. It's a good time to remember that the menu is not the meal. But the meal is definitely enhanced when the idea of it comes before you in figurative form, whets your expectations and builds up the anticipatory excitement. The concept will apply to many areas of life today.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can either order your tasks by priority or sit back and watch them order themselves. Either way, you'll get it all finished eventually, so there's no need to worry or fret. Breathe, and take it one task at a time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Momentum is working in your favor. You are busy, and you'll get busier, but it's all a great pleasure because of the people you get to interact with and the way this job brings out the best in you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don't need an excuse to follow your whims and dreams, but the people who don't understand will make you feel as though you must have one. Ridiculous! It makes you happy; that is reason enough to do it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are moments when you really do feel at one with it all. To be peaceful is to be nothing and everything at the same time — made of the same stuff as the star, the planet and the space in between.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don't want to trust that you're being told the truth. Neither do you want to merely believe it's true. You want to experience it, to feel it in your bones and live it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don't worry; it's not really up to you to define yourself. People will come up with their own thoughts and feelings about the experience of you. You're more loved than you could possibly know.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You appreciate your many freedoms, but none is so cherished today as the freedom to escape to your imagination and continue to build a heavenly playground there of your very own.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who look up to you. You wish they wouldn't put you on a high pedestal. You strive for humility and relatability. (And yet, to the ones you idolize, you want to be seen as interesting and remarkable.)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Creating order puts you at ease. Things aren't even that messy, but you'll still benefit from taking them to the next level of organization. You'll get a disproportionate boost of cheerful energy from the task.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You accept who you've been. The new you, the deeper you, the you that includes ideas to stretch and challenge the old definition — this person is harder to accept, but when you do you'll be more powerful.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Seeing the path before you clearly is typically the way you prefer to roll. But today you might actually get quite bored of knowing where you're headed. The path will wind, and you'll enjoy the adventure in this.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Loving another person profoundly is its own wondrous adventure. "The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself." — Anais Nin

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 24). You approach your work with great attention to detail. The next 10 weeks represent a surge in the usefulness, popularity and demand for what you do. Inside you may be your own worst critic, but outside you're your own best PR person. Enjoy love lavished on you in November, too. Leo and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 50, 11, 28 and 36.

GEMINI NEW-MOON PREPARATION: Grab a pen and write this on tomorrow's calendar: "Today is the day I'll..." The next 24 hours will be prime time to ponder the way that sentence should end.

Each new moon has its opportunities, and tomorrow brings yet another chance to clean the slate and distinctly begin in a fresh direction. The Gemini new moon tomorrow will be a wonderfully lucky start date for new relationships, projects and ventures of all kinds. However, there are a few caveats to consider as you decide where to focus this bubbly energy. Gemini solar energy makes it pretty easy to come up with possible "to-do" items. Just be aware that sometimes the twins cast their net too wide. Not all of the items you think of will add up to the same goal. If you disperse your energy in many directions at once, the effort can go to waste. To keep your plan tight and your motivation strong, narrow the field of options. Planning well will be the essential step to keep things on track. Be sure to ask for outside opinions, do your research, and then edit. Whatever amount of time you think the planning will take, double that number today and use up every minute, as a well-thought-out plan will bring sweet success.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame calls Bob Dylan "the uncontested poet laureate of the rock and roll era." The iconic Gemini embodies the wit, agility and mischief of his mercurial sign. The twins are hard to pin down. They defy definition and love to keep everyone guessing. Mercury and Venus are also in Gemini in Dylan's natal chart.
