Hazy Moon Blues
Are you easily distracted? If so, you may also be highly creative, as those two traits tend to go hand in hand. And here’s more good news: If you flit from person to interest to activity, you won’t be alone. Many people will be spellbound by the slightly hazy void-of-course moon, which is waxing toward Wednesday’s full status.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The outcome will not always be what you were going for, and sometimes you just have to accept that. The most desirable conclusion is always a possibility and never a given.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A renewal process is underway, and it will require you to shed old baggage. That part is easy, though; it requires no effort at all. All you have to do is make the decision to let go.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t have to be world famous to make a big difference on Earth. The quiet job you do now will make the earthly experience better for another person and maybe even save a life.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re trying to see the best in people. To call out their faults would only be counterproductive at this point. For now, talk only about what’s going right, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly the rest fades away.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company. When you’re not entirely sure, err on the side of standing solo until you get a better feel for who the other person really is.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People will listen to you now, and if they like what they hear, they will listen to you later, too. Order your words carefully, as they have extra power when arranged well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you’re unsure about what to do, a listening ear is the best gift you could give today. The quality and attentiveness of your listening will determine the value of the gift.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are times when you seek to deepen and renew your emotional connections. Right now, it takes advanced levels of grace and maturity just to tolerate the other people and try to get along.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Put the “co” in communication by getting more information. Enlightening questions to ask include, “What are you really trying to say?” and “Is there something you’d like to add?”
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Do you remember paradise? If not, maybe that’s only because the vibrant experience is locked up in a memory box and someone else holds the key. That someone will appear on the scene today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll never know exactly what the other person is thinking, but you’ll give it a good guess and land in the ballpark this afternoon. Ask follow-up questions, and you’ll get even closer.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It can be hard to be the new face in a sea of people who seem to know one another. You’ll have compassion toward the new person, and you’ll help this person get to know the others.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 25). Determined and tenacious, you will attain an important achievement at the end of April’s hard work. Your exciting travels in May make it unlikely that you will return to the same path. You’ll make pitches and seal deals in June. August happenings will unite you with like-minded people in a common cause. Your love signs are Cancer and Sagittarius. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 44, 29, 15 and 28.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m considering a divorce, although I hear the most horrible things about being single these days. If I leave my husband of 15 years, do you think I’m likely to meet someone else and be happy? Or will it be the end of the line for this Libra born in 1969?”
You were born into the sign of lovers. Libras tend to be idealistic about love, believing in the movie version. When life isn’t giving Libra film-quality scenes, fickle Libra thinks there’s something wrong, and her mind flits to fantasies of more favorable conditions. But are there really bluer skies on the other side of the rainbow?
Basing your happiness on another person is never a good idea regardless of your marital status. New love may temporarily sweep you into a beautiful reality, but sooner or later you’ll always return to the reality you create as an individual being. There’s no relationship in the world that can grant you lifelong happiness if you don’t know how to make yourself happy in the independent reality of you.
Why not work at making yourself happy while you’re still married and see what happens from there? You may find that your focus on yourself transforms your relationship without you even having to try.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: He was one of the most successful pop stars of the 1970s, but what makes Sir Elton John an iconic superstar is that he’s continued to top the charts decade after decade. The multiple Grammy winner was born when the sun was in Aries and the moon was in luxurious Taurus. His Mercury and Mars are in soulful, empathetic Pisces. His Saturn and Pluto are in show-stopping Leo.
