The Pisces Moon Moccasin Walk

A Native American saying warns not to criticize a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins. The mystical Pisces moon lends shape-shifting powers of imagination that allow for such a walk to occur, regardless of the size of those moccasins in relation to your own feet. Slip them on and see what life is like in another person’s shoes.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When dealing with the opposite sex, be specific and direct. Saying the honest thing quickly takes guts, but it is much easier than waiting. If you hesitate to tell the truth, things get awkward.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Whether you’re carrying out your duty or following your bliss, it’s important that you “do you.” There can be no satisfaction when you’re winning at being someone else.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Acts of self-discipline may not feel exactly joyful at first, but they will lead to happiness. Once you get past the initial resistance put up by your ego and id, you will be well on your way to a better state of being.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Helping someone else’s life run more smoothly will give you pleasure. Bonus: Helpful relationships put you in the mindset to create good fortune regardless of who is receiving the help.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like the idea of being a part of many different lives, but the reality of it can get overwhelming. Too many people in your space at once asking you questions will get tiring. Arrange smaller parties.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The best idea ever soon turns into a project that is a lot harder to execute than you thought it would be. There are friends around you who will help if you ask them to.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Dreaming about the people you wish you could be is not the fun, fanciful escape it sounds like. Loving who you are will bring you far more energy, and it will renew your enthusiasm for life, too.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t share all you’ve learned with people who haven’t paid their dues yet, because you worked hard to get where you are. Your knowledge is valuable, and you would be doing yourself a disservice if you gave it away for free.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone seems to be playing Mad Libs with you, leaving blanks for you to fill in. Resist. If you add your own answers, you won’t learn as much as you could. The real answers will surprise you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t believe in getting even, but you do see the need to put things back into balance. This is best accomplished by devoting more time to yourself and your projects. Success is the best revenge.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A lifelong learner, ultimately you’ll amass quite a body of knowledge on an array of subjects. Today will introduce a fascinating new tidbit. You’ll follow a trail and come to a juicy bit of information.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The truth is that you enjoy the one who gives you trouble, challenges you and makes you laugh. Putting all of your effort and attention into another person can be heavenly.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 4). World leaders, philosophers and scientists can argue endlessly about what shape the world is in, but you know the truth: It is what you make of it. Your iron will and intense focus on the positive will turn a less than perfect situation into your ideal scenario. This month is devoted to love. June brings funding for your project. Pisces and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 49, 3 and 18.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “What is the proper age to discuss sensitive topics with my beautiful young Aries daughter? She’s only 12, and yet some of my friends are telling me I should fully inform her as to the ways of the world that I have shielded her from for so long. They insist that if I don’t talk to her, she’ll get information elsewhere. Do you think this is true? I’m a Pisces.”

It’s a judgment call that only you can make. Note that the first sign of the zodiac is very different from the last sign of the zodiac. Since you are a Pisces, you may not remember being as innocent as your Aries appears to you. Yours is the sign of old souls, and Pisces people are often wise beyond their years. Learning about the world wasn’t as shocking to you as it will be for your innocent Aries. Keep in mind that we like to think of Aries as the pure lamb in need of a shepherd’s care, guidance and protection; whereas, Aries likes to think of herself as the first born who must strike out with great zeal and sometimes rebelliousness. She is growing into her warrior spirit, so give her accurate information to arm herself with!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Grammy-winner Adele was born under the sign that rules the throat. Taurus people are famous for their golden voices, and Adele shares the same zodiac sign as powerhouse vocalists like James Brown, Barbra Streisand, Ella Fitzgerald, Kelly Clarkson, Bono and Cher. Adele also has lucky Jupiter in Taurus and several planets in Capricorn, a sign noted for making excellent business decisions.
