Cancer New Moon Eve

The eve of the new moon warrants a you-to-you meeting. The agenda should include a review of what did and didn’t work over the past four weeks. (With Mercury retrograde, we’ve been thinking about this anyway, so there are probably a few standout examples.) Set new goals. Tomorrow is an ideal start date.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone has to be looking out for the group, and that someone is you today. Luckily, you have experience with controlled chaos. You know how to have fun and still stay aware of exactly what’s going on.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Socializing will benefit you in unforeseen ways. A smile and a few words to a stranger will be all it takes to spark conversation. Listen to someone’s experiences. There’s something key for you in the exchange.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone deals with stress differently. Your way today is to reframe the stressful event, naming it “an adventure” or “an opportunity.” Hang on tight, and ride the ups and downs of this roller coaster of a day.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s only natural to want to spend time with people who are like you, but it’s a delightfully different friend who will broaden your horizons. So don’t be afraid to reach out to someone outside of your comfort zone.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may never jibe with a certain person as easily as you do with your best friends, but you can still have pleasant interactions. All it takes is one simple compromise to turn a relationship around.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A deep, forgotten wound is still a wound. However, its pain may never have been felt, so it arranges scenarios in which new pain is a possibility. You’ll end the cycle when you seek healing for this long-ago hurt.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you continue to deliver with star quality, the attention will be diverted from you now. It’s likely that you’ll find this to be a pleasant change and a chance to relax. It’s not easy to always be “on.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Consider your options carefully. One possible course of action will be easier for you, but it will displease a friend. Avoid that one. It’s so not worth the avalanche of a reaction likely to follow.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Soon you’ll steal the show, but you’re not quite ready to break out and do things on your own yet. For now, you’ll learn by being a quiet observer and listener extraordinaire.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s hard to try out a new approach (or perhaps a new personality) when you’re among people who know you well. Groups of strangers offer exciting possibilities for personal change.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Today’s events will require your patience and fortitude. Go to bed early because this challenging tone continues through tomorrow. If you’re rested and at your best, you’ll figure out how to benefit from the situation.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Travel will inspire you. But if you can’t get away, reading, viewing media and talking with people who’ve lived in different places are forms of travel that will work almost as well.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 7). Obey your gut feelings, especially when they come in the form of red flags. Healthy relationships form when you start out attracted to each other and keep finding more reasons to be attracted the deeper you go. This month highlights love. August brings a lifestyle upgrade. In September, you’ll sign a contract — be sure first! Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 30, 22, 14 and 4.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The skies bring cosmic mercy as Saturn turns direct on Monday. Saturn is the planet of hard lessons. As he stations to fly straight, it’s as though our intense mental energies are no longer needed. The test is over, the bell has rung, and it’s time for recess. Nurturing influences prevail, and the world seems more hospitable with the sun, the moon, Mercury and Jupiter all resonating in the intuitive sign of the crab.

Monday also brings the Cancer new moon, an ideal time to state your goals and intentions for your home life and take steps to make them happen.

On Saturday, Mars joins the party in Cancer, putting new urgency behind our home improvement efforts. Projects that have been stalled suddenly get a burst of can-do energy. As the water-sign energy of Cancer meets fiery Mars, the effect is steam — the kind that produces mechanical motion. You might think of this Mars transit as your own personal Industrial Revolution. What is it that you haven’t been able to accomplish because you didn’t have enough support or power to do so? Now is your chance. Mars will be in Cancer until Aug. 27, 2013.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In a typical week, multitalented Beatles drummer Ringo Starr tours the world with his All Starr band, puts together photography books and saves the rhinos. This Cancer star was born when Venus was in sociable, witty Gemini and four other luminaries were in entertaining Leo. Three planets in Taurus suggests stamina, determination and longevity.
