New Moon Eve
What project would you like to see blossom over the next two weeks? Even improbable, outrageous or wacky endeavors seem doable. Whatever venture you take on, the waxing moon on March 11th through the 26th will compound your efforts. That’s why today — on the eve of the Pisces new moon — is the ideal time to get your ducks in a row.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s a lot easier to have a positive attitude when you’re actually happy. And right now, you’re relatively easy to please. So go on and do the things that might make you smile.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The little guy can win. You’ve seen it happen, and you’ve made it happen. The odds may appear to be stacked against you, but that won’t deter you now. You’ll take on the challenge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Life is just more interesting to the person who has a curious mind. Because you are naturally curious, you often find yourself in a fascinating place among absorbing people.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s important to you that the people around you are honest in the way they present information. You enjoy fiction, and you don’t mind taking a fanciful journey as long as it’s not masquerading as reality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One-sided relationships are too much work, and they usually don’t last. Find out what the other person wants. Take care to do or request the things that will make a relationship balanced.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll find something to learn from everyone. Today the messenger will be far less appealing than the message. But if you can get past the delivery system, you’ll receive golden knowledge.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re multifaceted and will think differently at different points of the day. The mixed bag of positive and negative thoughts will balance into a rather realistic view of life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even though you are operating at levels that are much deeper than the material world, you’ll still take the time to look good. Because you pay attention to detail and dress appropriately, you’ll be offered a special opportunity.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll sense that you are feeling the same way as another person, so mention it. Take advantage of this bonding opportunity. It will be nice to know that you’re not so different from anyone else.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Is entertainment relaxing you or enslaving you? When the show is over, do you feel energized and inspired, or exhausted? Make the choices that will contribute to your happiness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Complicated characters may be infringing on your peace. Though you can’t always choose your company, you can arrange to spend more time around people who are funny, easy-going and nice.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Look out, world, here you come! Your energy is strong, and you know just what you have to do. True, this task is not exactly how you love to spend your time, but it needs doing just the same.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 10). Sure, you have competitors and colleagues. Still, no one can do what you do the way you do it. That’s why you’ll be honored this month, and you’ll receive bonus money, too. April brings the end of a task and a new adventure. June is your shot at a prize. July is one long love song. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 38 and 18.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Whatever you wish to grow stronger in your life, it’s likely that the traditional methods will not be the best at this time. The Pisces new moon in the beginning of the week wants to open our minds and souls to different possibilities. You may find out that things you didn’t believe had anything to do with one another are in fact connected in magical ways. Even though Pisces is the old soul of the zodiac, it is also the sign of new inner worlds. Creativity, healing and spirituality will be the focus tomorrow and during the two weeks that follow.
Also, in the early week, Mars changes stations. When the red planet comes home to Aries, the sign it rules, Mars becomes even more powerful. In some ways, this passage is like Dr. Robert Bruce Banner turning into The Hulk. Even though he may cause the occasional random destruction of property, the nature of this powerful green guy is basically good. His wild outbursts may be scary, but he is usually only acting in his own defense or in the defense of others. Mars in Aries, a passage that lasts until April 20th, may be all bulked-up muscles and raw testosterone, but the intent is to do some good in the world.
