Walk It Off Under the Taurus Moon

According to some statisticians, an average person living to the age of 80 will walk around 110,000 miles in a lifetime. Because Earth’s circumference at the equator is 24,901.55 miles, that’s the equivalent of walking several times around the globe. Under the determined Capricorn sun and with the moon in earthy Taurus, many will walk twice their daily average today.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). To feel valued and understood, you have to believe that people are listening to you — really listening. You’ll make an extra effort to give and receive quality attention.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People with high self-esteem are happier in their relationships. That’s one more reason to get on your own side, root for yourself and do the things that will make you happy.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The personal work you do will further your individuality, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be as intimate as you want to be with loved ones. Closeness and oneness are not the same.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The qualities you are looking for in a partner have changed over time, and they will continue to do so. That’s why it’s so important to make a commitment to change together.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It has been suggested that nothing worth having can be purchased with money. Today’s highly satisfying purchase will make you question the validity of that statement.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The task you take on won’t be as easy for you as it seems to be for others. But just because you’re not the best at it doesn’t mean you should give up. Persevere.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do you know what your philosophy of life is? You’ll give some thought to this. The ideas and realizations you come up with will improve your sense of purpose and help you communicate a stronger presence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Passion makes people behave in crazy ways, and you know this first hand. A sentimental mood takes hold, and you’ll have fun recalling your own passionate moves and the path along which they led you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Always leave the party on a high note. This adage also applies to meetings, conversations and relationships, although in the case of relationships, it’s particularly challenging.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). With the sun energizing your part of the sky, it will suddenly dawn on you how to highlight your talents in the days and weeks to come. The world truly needs what only you can give.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s a time to spread good will, not a time to push hot buttons. Politics can destroy good vibes and ruin relationships that were doing just fine before the political conversation.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Stories get told and retold, and they morph as they travel. You may find it amusing when a story of yours gets changed in the retelling. Then again, you may find cause to set the record straight.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 23). You’ll win the alliance, support and loyalty you desire. Your gentle persuasion will work just the way you want it to, and you’ll enjoy the results over the next three weeks. March brings your turn at a high-stakes game. You’ll make changes to your domestic scene in June. You’ll be proud of what family does in August. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 33, 39 and 17.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: They said this week would never come, but here we are. The sky didn’t fall. The Earth’s atmosphere didn’t sizzle. Your head was not eaten by a zombie. So what’s next?

The opposition of Venus and Jupiter continues to highlight the financial expense of love. The day-to-day realities can’t be denied. Having money affords a different kind of experience from not having it; that much is clear. But don’t forget that in the big picture of relationships, money means very little because our hearts, emotions, attention, time and energy are all much more valuable than dollars.

Most people are generous at heart, but many don’t know what is needed in the world and what they can do about it. The uninformed will be better informed in the weeks to come, though. Mars enters Aquarius on Tuesday, fueling philanthropy and increasing our awareness of what is needed and what we can do.

The Gemini moon favors sharing and laughter. The bright intellectual energy of this waxing moon will help us make the smart moves necessary to effectively communicate the magic of the season. The full moon in Cancer on Friday will release emotions and bring the week to a relaxed close.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Holding the Guinness Book record for the first self-made American woman millionaire, Madam C.J. Walker built an empire out of hair and beauty products for African-American women. Capricorn is the sign of business moguls. The sea goat loves a challenge, is highly driven to set goals and work toward them, and is adept at maneuvering power structures to achieve a financial end.
