Are you up to a quest? Or will a mere caper satisfy your lust for life? Adventure calls under the Sagittarius moon, and there will be many opportunities to launch into escapades of all sizes. The Pisces sun offers you the advantage of intuition, so turn up the dial on yours to sense the right path.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of trying to overcome your weaknesses, feed your strengths. Eventually, the weaknesses will be so overshadowed that they’ll become a non-issue.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a very interesting dynamic coming into your life. Don’t chase it too hard. Think of events and people as fireworks. You have to let go to appreciate them; otherwise, you’ll get hurt.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you can tell the size of a person by the size of the things that bother him or her, you’ll prove your spiritual largesse today. You’ll only concern yourself with the truly important stuff.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The challenges of the day will require you to make a decision in a flash. Can you judge a book by its cover? Arguably, the aesthetics of the author will somehow be reflected there.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Statistics can never predict the outcome for any one individual. You’ll defy the odds — a reason to celebrate, even if you happen to be celebrating by yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be faced with a dilemma, and the answer is the same as it always is: love. Bottom line: What is the most loving choice you could make? That’s the right choice.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re in the mood for a fearless, freewheeling adventure. Who will be your partner in this rebellion? The obvious choice will be the best one this time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Maybe you can’t help but wonder what others are thinking, but you can turn this to your advantage by imagining that everyone is cheering you on to great heights. Now that’s an empowering thought.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll recognize the truth of relationships: The people who like you don’t need you to do much else besides just be yourself. The people who use you require much more.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Happiness is common sense. It’s bringing your own car to the party. It’s never lending more than you can afford to lose and accepting that everyone has their own sense of timing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you can solve, help with or contribute to the resolution of a problem, then it’s a worthwhile problem to call your own. Avoid any problem that doesn’t fall into this category and you’ll have a most fulfilling day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be offered compliments and gifts. Take the compliments with a simple “thank you,” but think twice before you accept gifts. Is there a reason why it’s not a good idea?
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 22). You feel generous, competent and in control as you go into this year. The thrills of March may be unsustainable for the long term, so enjoy it while you can. April brings a change of tone and a rock-steady influence into your world. Financial opportunity depends on education in June and October. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 26, 3, 24, 35 and 11.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m 45, and I’ve lost all of my friends. Since I had children and moved across the state, I’ve had trouble keeping up with my good friends back in Nevada. Some people are awesome at this, but I’m more of an introvert at heart, and I work full time and my husband is not very domestically helpful. Therefore, I just don’t have time to make the phone calls or trips it would take to keep up these relationships. My friends in Mississippi tend to be people I hang out with so my children will have someone to play with. I like them well enough, but if our kids didn’t play together, I doubt we’d connect. So should an introverted Virgo stop feeling guilty and let old acquaintances be forgotten?”
Truthfully, are those friendships so costly? While I wouldn’t advise reconnecting with drama queens and the like, I do think you may regret letting good friendships go neglected for too long. You’re an organized Virgo, so find an organized way to keep up with long-distant friendships. Even if you only spend one hour a month communicating through social media or making a few calls, you’ll later be glad you did.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: In Drew Barrymore’s recently published book of photographs, “Find It in Everything,” she shares her pictures of the heart shapes that have shown up in her everyday life through the years. This multi-talented Pisces artist (with Venus and Jupiter in Pisces, too) has even more love than ever to celebrate now, being the mother of a 1-year old daughter with another daughter on the way.
