Buttoned-Up Virgo Moon

Spring fever is at its height this week. Amorous intentions are already becoming known as the moon waxes toward the full Libra lunar glow on Wednesday. But the current Virgo moon is too buttoned up to allow for much romantic progress. Keep the tension alive. Not getting what you want too easily makes you want it all the more.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll receive feedback. This could come from higher-ups regarding your upward potential, or it could be a customer’s reaction to work product. Either way, it’s a gift — albeit a gift that you’ll be processing for a while.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Not everyone will share your high opinion of certain people. It would help you to take off your rose-colored glasses for a moment and see what others are seeing. Don’t worry. You can always put them back on.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The most successful and talented people you know have struggles. So don’t think you’re alone in this business of being human, having flaws and making mistakes.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). We are, by and large, a culture with a short attention span. It’s something to consider when you’re relaying a story today. Perhaps you should start in the middle.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be inspired by what you experience and discover. Sharing this is tricky, though, because your point of view is so different now. What aren’t they seeing that you see? How can you make them see it?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The reason you get things done now is that you consider what matters before you act. With a clear idea of why, you take the actions that are likely to have the biggest impact.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Efforts that are not in line with your goals give you an anxious feeling; whereas, you have a lot of fun when you know you’re getting the right things done at the right time.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Forthright, cheerful, outgoing people seem to get all of the attention. Not from you, though. A wonderful thing happens because you take the time to understand the enigmatic nuances of subtler types.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Others might misperceive you, and if they do, it’s still valuable to know what they are thinking and why. No matter how off base the outsiders may be, there’s still some wee kernel of truth to glean from their insight.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You recognize that each person must follow his or her own path. You’ve demonstrated your affection quite fully, and now you want to appreciate and love someone while simply letting that person be.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you go public with your creativity, the reaction might be mixed — and that is fine with you. You seek the unswerving devotion that comes from unconditional love, not the fickle attention of strangers.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Before you chastise yourself for over-thinking, lighten up. Rationalizing can be fun. The misuse of logical thought plus a wallop of humor equals an entertaining exercise or an excellent story.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 24). This year has the movement of a dramatic dance: sometimes controlled and then suddenly taking brilliantly passionate turns. All of the strength training you did last year allows you to keep your footing. April brings a settlement followed by a new deal. Family celebrates you in May and August. You’ll find new digs in June. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 24, 38 and 13.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The full moon in Libra that falls plumb in the middle of this spring week can be blamed for the joyfully disorienting spring fever that so many will be infected with through the end of the month.

Before the full moon, there will be a mounting tension similar to the suspense of a romantic comedy. Will the main characters who despise one another at the start of the film finally connect in the end? Of course. But it can’t happen without the bits filled with misunderstanding, awkward mistakes and bitter disappointments. Mars and Pluto square off on the 26th to help provide some of that drama. Then, on the 28th, Venus and Neptune in Pisces cues up the love song for a weekend of happy endings.

These are fun times, and the mindlessness of spring is definitely part of what makes the journey pleasurable. And yet, you may have even more fun if you do a bit of mental preparation on the subject of relationships. What are you looking for in a partner? How do you want to be treated? What is the best thing anyone could say to you at this point in your life? The answers to these questions may help you keep your balance around this Libra lunar event.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Sheldon Cooper of “The Big Bang Theory” is the quintessential clueless genius: a social moron who is a brilliant physicist. In contrast, Jim Parsons has hefty social and emotional endowments, which he applied in the process of understanding and creating a character that has garnered him high praise and many awards. This Aries with Venus in Pisces is lauded as a genius of physical comedy.
