Moon Does Cosmic Yawning

The primal instinct that bonds humans together may be summed up in the contagion of yawns. It’s something you might notice during the void-of-course lunar situation — a cosmic yawn that catches on, no problem. The moon may be darkening, but this only intensifies the lovely energy it radiates as it passes into Aries in the latter day.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The feeling that you have no control can be so overwhelming that it leads you to counterintuitive behaviors. Discuss it with a close friend or a guide who can help you see the areas you can control.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is a lucky day for pitching ideas, submitting proposals and the like. You have a way of single-handedly lifting the Monday morning fog that many are feeling in the early hours.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone has to start the good vibes rolling, and that someone is probably you. Make a mental list of the things you appreciate in your environment right now, including what loved ones do to make your life better.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Be on guard against your tendency toward self-criticism. You need to be confident now in order to face the world, and that means getting on your own side. You can always address self-doubt later. For now, tell it to take a hike.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you hear about something that is not for you, you know immediately that it’s not a good match. But acting on that feeling — and letting ‘em down easy — takes finesse. Good luck.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When the donkey is no longer hungry, he will not follow that carrot on the stick, no matter how juicy it may be. You’ll be in a position to think of new incentives or wait until new appetites are formed.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You sometimes feel like you’re a playing piece in a game you don’t completely understand. Give it time. You’ll learn from your place in the board game of life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The thing about putting yourself out there is that it doesn’t always work out. Still, there’s something that keeps you on this track of making the more daring and interesting choices.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll do your best work when you’re left alone. Unfortunately, it will be a bit tricky to make that happen given today’s nonstop business, but you’ll manage.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Someone will give you the benefit of the doubt, and you’ll appreciate the kindness of this gesture. It’s indicative not only of the good nature of the person you’re facing, but also of how far we’ve come as human beings.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t have an unlimited amount of time to learn every discipline or accomplish every task. Sometimes the coolest thing to do is to back off and let others do what needs doing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you’re criticized, don’t jump up to defend yourself. It will be far better to blow it off in the moment and let the dust settle where it may. In time, your work will speak for itself. Either that, or someone loyal will spring to your defense.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 8). You have a soft place in your heart for those who do not relate to the rest of the group, and you reach out to offer a sense of belonging. That contribution colors your year. You will in turn be included in the secret world of others and invited into remarkable experiences. Financial and creative highs come in May, June and October. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 12, 13, 22 and 15.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Do you think there is life on other planets? I’m just wondering how this fits in with astrology. I’m an Aquarius, and I totally believe that we will be visited by aliens in the next 10 years. Already we’ve found fossils in meteors, right?”

I don’t know about the meteor fossils and have never heard of scientific substantiation of such a thing, but I think your fascination with aliens might be a porthole to your higher imagination that is not to be taken for granted. Have you ever considered writing about your alien fantasies? What do you want to happen when the aliens touch ground? Will they be friendly? Will they take over? Both? And what do they want with us? The answers to these questions and others may tell you more about your current scene than you would think. Your abundant creativity has been known to crowd out reality from time to time, but if used well, it’s also the key to unlocking a new reality that is better suited for a brilliant dreamer like you. Bonus: You just might come up with stories to delight your friends and attract fans.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Adorable Aries Skai Jackson is a Disney channel favorite as the wisecracking cutie pie Zuri Ross of the series “Jessie.” This Aries has the chart for longevity, as her moon is perfectly poised in Pisces for a serious acting career. Her Venus and Mars in Taurus shows a down-to-earth, grounded style that can keep the Hollywood lifestyle from going to her head.
