The Moon Doubles the Flavor

Due to the midday lunar shift, the morning will have a distinctly different flavor from that of the evening. The altruistic Aquarius moon rules the early day, and then, after a while, the law of diminishing returns applies best. Gather your offerings, and go home to restore your soul by the waning Pisces lunar light.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Tight friendships sometimes leave little room for outsiders, but this can be unhealthy — especially now, when it’s best to have many opinions and influences. Broaden your social horizons.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To be able to think strategically is a talent, though those who possess this gift, yourself included, often form their brilliant plans so effortlessly that they don’t give the process the credit it deserves.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Good enough doesn’t thrill you. Like a diver after pearls, you will search for what is truly rare and beautiful, even if it means you have to plunge the depths to do so.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you wait until you really feel like telling others how wonderful they are, you’ll waste time and miss out on advancing relationships. Give compliments now, if only for the practice.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even though you are the most generous of the bunch, you would prefer not to be noticed for this. In fact, it embarrasses you to be called out in this way. For this reason, you’re better off giving anonymously.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Gifts are nice, except that they obligate you to the giver. A sweet thank-you note is often the least you can do in return. Avoid setting a precedent of physical gift-giving.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll commit your talent to the job of making someone else look better. You’re on the lookout for work that’s already quite good and just needs a few refinements to become spectacular.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Brilliant timing is the theme of the day. You’ll get the peaceful feeling that everything occurs precisely when it’s supposed to, even when nothing is going according to plan.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The wind is invisible, but its strength changes the landscape. You love with a power that is stronger than the wind, and the force of your feelings will move people.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because you are so ambitious, you sometimes overestimate what you can accomplish in a day. But with consistent effort, you will hit your marks — if not today, then soon!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You sense when people aren’t telling the whole truth, but you often don’t press the issue, sensitive to their need for privacy. Maybe the truth is too embarrassing. Anyway, you’ll slyly figure it out on your own.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you spend a great deal of time with someone who under-appreciates you, you begin to believe that your gifts are not worth much. To keep your light shining bright, you must go where its radiance is celebrated.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 3). Good habits bring success. This month’s change to your routine will lead to your biggest win yet. New relationships shape up over the next six weeks. You’ll earn an excellent rating in some regard and be promoted in July. Travel, research and education are worth an investment, and you’ll commit wholeheartedly in October. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 19, 3 and 13.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Your days will be filled with affection, warmth and laughter. TAURUS: Playful people are attractive people. Be improvisational, and turn things into a game whenever possible. GEMINI: You have a wide array of talents to offer and will be interested in someone who is equally unpredictably gifted. CANCER: Genuinely curious, you’ll gain a greater understanding of someone’s world and still want to know more. LEO: You believe that you are connected in mysterious ways to the people and environment around you, and this will prove true. VIRGO: One moment of delicious eye contact is better than an entire unconnected date. LIBRA: Don’t call when you’re nervous. Relax first. SCORPIO: Seemingly disparate ideas will add up to an interesting realization about who you are and what you want to do next. SAGITTARIUS: You’re attractive when you’re bold enough to share your personal reasons for doing what you do. CAPRICORN: The person who offers a measure of stability is mighty attractive to you now. AQUARIUS: Your ideas are good. The people around you may not realize this, though, so don’t ask them what they think. PISCES: You flirt without realizing it. Do you even know that you have a crush?

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Taurus is of the earth, connected to the physical realm, practical and solid. Pisces is in the ether, spiritually aligned, dreamy and ever-changing. A relationship between these mismatched mates has the makings of a classic situation comedy, ala “Dharma and Greg,” “I Dream of Jeannie” or “Bewitched.” The rest of the world might find them to be an odd duo, but somehow they make it work.
