The Leo moon is an entertainer who follows the old vaudevillian three-part formula for showmanship: Tell them what you’re going to do, do it, and then tell them what you did. The morning brings promise, the afternoon delivers on it, and the night brings a delightful recap — hopefully followed by thunderous applause!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Much of the day will have a gentle, peaceful tone in spite of, or perhaps because of, your intensely busy schedule. You’ll go easily from one task to the next, keeping it all together calmly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll win fans because you are very patient. The thing that is so obvious to you is not apparent to another person. You realize that you have nothing to gain from trying to rush others along.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someday, ATMs will recognize you by scanning your face and will deliver your financial wishes accordingly. For now, there’s someone you know who may serve a similar function.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll feel driven to express a rather unpopular opinion. Maybe it’s because you feel responsible to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves. It will go down easier with a bit of humor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s becoming increasingly challenging to keep yourself entertained. Plan an adventure. Giving yourself something to look forward to will help you have the patience to do what’s necessary now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have something nice to say. Chances are, the one you want to praise has heard it a million times. You’ll find a creative way to phrase your kind words and will make a stellar impression.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People who don’t give you a normal amount of feedback will deplete your energy. You’ll soon get tired of trying so hard to get a reaction. There’s no joy in it. Seek generous spirits who give as much as they take.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Part of what makes you such a good friend is that you are usually paying attention, as today proves. You’ll be attuned to the changes in a loved one’s attitude, and you’ll check in to make sure all is well.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re an excellent reader of people’s “vibes” today. You sense correctly what makes others happy or unhappy, and you deliver accordingly. If you’re in sales, you’ll make a killing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll find benefit in the advice of your signmate the late great director Milton Katselas: “When you want to blame, praise instead. Instead of holding a grudge, send a creampuff.”
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Being charming is not the same thing as being a people pleaser. You’ll win people over with your easy-going style, but you’re far too busy to pander to their every need.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your passionate nature emerges. If you can describe the emotions running through you now, you’ll gain a greater sense of control over them. Naming your feelings will help you tame your feelings.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 2). This year, you will know your own star quality and be recognized for your originality. You know what you’re good at, and in the next six weeks, you reach new heights of greatness with it. Romance is kindled as you pursue education. Financial growth happens in May, August and January. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 13, 20, 30 and 31.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Will it work out between me and a Scorpio? I think I’m really in love with him, though I admit we’ve never met except through email and on the phone. Still, I feel strongly that we were meant to be. He wants to move to be with me! Right now he lives about 500 miles away. I’m a Pisces. What do you think?”
You are extremely intuitive and may very well be experiencing the strong pull of soulful compatibility. And yet, if that’ so, what’s the harm in testing the waters first? Go visit your Scorpio friend in his town and see what he’s really like. Plan to stay at a hotel for a week while you date the old-fashioned way — using your own car and meeting in a public place. Even better, bring a friend. It’s only sensible.
I’m not trying to dampen your romantic spirits or ruin your heavenly plans, but people need to exercise caution when it comes to Internet dating. No matter how many lovely emails you’ve exchanged, the old rules still apply. If you truly are compatible (and Pisces and Scorpio often are!), then you have a long road ahead together. You’ll never regret taking things slowly now.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Country superstar Emmylou Harris has won 12 Grammys and counting. Does such an accomplished musician still care about winning the statue? Absolutely! Aries is a competitive sign with a fighting spirit. Even those peaceful artists who are more about love than war express their Aries nature by winning the accolades that mean something to them and their team members.
