Gullible Pisces Moon

Not knowing how something works is never reason enough to doubt that it does. The Pisces moon can be impressionable, if not downright gullible. But it’s better to err on the side of belief than to be a cynic spouting doubt and nastiness and darkening the world with limiting visions of how things are or might be.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t mind working in obscurity. In fact, you prefer it to having to deal with the distraction of the attention popularity provides. Ignore unwanted attention, and it will eventually go away.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You never know whom you might meet at a child’s birthday party or the golf course. You will make new professional contacts when you are not at all trying to do so.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Beware of unmanageable goals. Set goals based only on things that are within your power. For instance, how much weight you lose is not really within your direct influence, but how many calories you eat absolutely is.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Life is a patient teacher. It keeps bringing the same lesson back until that lesson is learned. How do you know you’ve learned it? When it stops showing up in the classroom of your days.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You give off a superstar energy as you walk around with your head held high. You’ll lift the excitement level of your environment. And don’t worry. Everyone will respect your celebrity status and give you privacy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be asked to judge. Do not get personally involved in conflicts, but hear them out objectively. Stay open to all sides of an argument before reaching a decision.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are serious about making a change that you know will benefit you in many ways. Start with small, easy changes. Those wins will lead to bigger changes, because success begets success.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The distant point you see is not even close to your destination, but you can’t make out anything beyond it. That’s OK. Journey to that point, and when you get there, you’ll be able to see farther.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll run into someone you met long ago and treat this person with the warmth of a dear friend, mostly because that’s just how you are. As the positive feelings flow, you’re teaching others to be this way, too.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Did you ever ask yourself to take yourself to the airport, agree to the favor and then forget to say thank you? You do a lot for yourself and sometimes forget to thank or credit yourself for the contribution.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your theories about what you can and can’t do will be incorrect now. So instead of theorizing, just make a commitment. By striving to fulfill it, you’ll find out what you can do.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Put yourself in a situation that will help you learn more about how your body moves and builds itself. Dance, exercise and other physical activities will help you gain a new sense of ownership of your body.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 7). It’s your year to play with light. You’ll bring different qualities and levels of mental illumination to the issues you face, and your resulting decisions will be different because of this flexibility of mind. The love bonds you forge in June lead to August travel. Ink a deal in July. September brings a new career trajectory. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 2, 33, 49 and 11.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: There are many symbols for Aries, including a ram, a lamb and the warrior god Mars. A lesser known association with Aries is the archangel Michael. Many religions herald Michael as a powerful favorite angel, chosen to deliver messages to the likes of Jacob and Moses. Michael is often depicted with his sword drawn in one hand and holding the scales of judgment in the other. He is crushing the winged horned dragon of evil under his golden sandal. The feeling of justice, protection and the might of goodness radiates from his aura.

The reason I bring it up is that this action-packed image of Michael fits the spirit of the new moon on Wednesday. Are you fighting evil in your own life? Is there a dragon that needs slaying, weaker folks who need saving or a mission that must be carried out? The new moon trumpets your call to march forward. With the might of right on your side, you’ll bring down evil forces.

Note: It’s quite likely that these forces are actually not of the outside world, but rather, they are the shadows inside of us.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Russell Crowe recently showed his musical side with his performance in the blockbuster movie musical “Les Miserables.” True to his Aries sun sign energy, the Oscar-winning New Zealander often plays soldier or warrior parts. Crowe was born when the sun, Mars and Jupiter were in the sign of Aries, the warrior. His moon is in musical Aquarius.
