Scorpio Moon of Insight

It’s not true that hindsight is always 20/20. Seeing the past correctly and in a way that is useful in the present can be challenging. But today’s insightful Scorpio moon lends a bit of extra clarity. Test it out with a walk down memory lane. Thinking back, try to pinpoint the exact event that divided your life into “before” and “after.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The solution to most problems is found in one word: communicate. Listening better makes for better responses. Answers and right actions come easily to those who are excellent listeners.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone you know is a prime candidate for the Japanese robot suits being designed to aid the elderly and the physically challenged. Meanwhile, you appreciate people for their minds, regardless of what their bodies can do.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your warmth makes others feel safe. They will include you because they know you’ll add energy to whatever they have going on. Each invitation you get is proof of your social impact.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Working with others will be a joy as long as you’re all on the same page. Whomever you’re dealing with, from your loved ones to your hair stylist, check to be sure they share your vision of the outcome.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You still feel an awkwardness in greeting and leaving certain people. Should you hug? Shake hands? Walk them to the car? When in doubt, do more. You won’t regret it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have a way of turning problematic characters into contributors. You actively look for and publicly recognize what people are doing right, even if they also are doing a few things wrong.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your jolly mood will inspire you to be direct and demonstrative, telling people outright that you like them. This won’t make you seem uncool in any way. In fact, you’ll light up the room.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s a twinkling in your eyes and a smile just waiting to dance across your lips at the slightest provocation. This time it wasn’t put there by you-know-who or by anyone in particular. You love life, period.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The high points of the day will be brought to you by someone you find fascinating. As you notice aloud what makes this person so interesting, a kinship develops.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are bored by overly serious people and will do everything in your power to lighten up the environment around you, making it less hospitable to the heavy of heart.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Happiness will come in waves, and you’ll process it in outbursts of expression — for instance, by singing loudly. Joyful noises are always beautiful even if they are not skillful.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Relationships will be like poker, and you will play for attention rather than chips. The larger a person’s investment the harder it will be for that person to walk away from the table.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 30). The next three weeks bring tremendous inspiration. Being inspired to act will not be enough, though. You’ll win because you are also organized and able to execute. May brings solid planning and a stellar team. June shows you giving an acceptance speech. Family celebrates together in July. September brings a windfall. Libra and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 14, 39, 33 and 45.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: I’m a Scorpio and am very good at keeping secrets, especially ones that are about me. I did this thing recently at work, and I just have to confess. My job is to process a certain kind of data and reformat it for another use. It was tedious and always the same. So I created a program that automated the work. Now all I have to do is press two keys, and the job that used to take hours can be done in a few minutes. Everyone is happy with me, and I’m considered one of the best workers, when, in fact, I surf the Internet all day. If I tell anyone about the automation I invented, many of my co-workers will be unnecessary. What should I do? — Anonymous Scorpio

That was a classic Scorpio move, my friend: seeing through the noise of the immediate problem and solving the deeper issue. And now you have a new problem to solve. Assuming your colleagues like to do things like eat food and live indoors, they probably need those jobs. The least you could do is devote all of your free time at work to developing a higher purpose, thereby using your considerable gifts for good.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Last month, Canadian chanteuse Celine Dion guided more than a billion Chinese people into the new year of the snake with a televised performance of Chinese folk music sung in flawless Mandarin. The Aries diva may be full of surprises, but it is never surprising that she rises to the occasion. Her moon and Mars in Taurus, the sign of the voice, signifies strong, enduring gifts.
