Aquarius Moon Tickles the Intellect
Pluto is still cranky. He just can’t seem to lay off the idea that we should be dealing with the fundamental issues affecting society. The Aquarius moon chimes in with agreement, although in far cheerier tones. This is the moon that stimulates our intellectual curiosity and broadens the range of acceptable answers so that new solutions will come together.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The wind does not command the sailboat. If that were true, all boats would wind up in the same place. Don’t forget that you are the captain. The way you set your sails determines the direction you go.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). All of the scenarios that didn’t work out led you to the situations that worked brilliantly. Today, you do not even mind which way it goes, because you know both have equal merit. You always find your way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do not confuse the idea of nurturing with being touchy-feely or soft. Nurturing is a way of letting others relax enough to grow into the next move. Today will show you that you can be nurturing and still be tough.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The No. 1 rule of remaining a bit mysterious is to avoid answering questions that were not asked of you. This is also an excellent principle to apply to today’s negotiations.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re not asking that every day be epic, but you’re a little tired of the same old, same old right now, and you’re not sure how best to mix it up. Luckily, a fresh face in your scene will do that for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Laughing hard is noisy. Laughing harder is silent. It’s as if the hilarity itself takes over and the noise can’t come out. That’s the cosmic gift of the day: extreme humor.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even innocent people sometimes clam up suspiciously when the police are around. Why is this? The mere idea of authority has a way of making us ultra-accountable. You can use this principle to maintain order today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Fellow Scorpio Zig Ziglar made the point that calling traffic lights “stop lights” is pessimistic because they are also “go lights.” And you will find many more optimistic ways of expressing yourself in your present good mood!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some long to know what people think of them — but not you, not now anyway. You are so busy doing your thing that you don’t even care if they think of you, just as long as they stay out of your way. You’re on a mission.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t have to be No. 1 overall to be the very best. You’re not really in competition with anyone else anyway today. No one would have the first clue about what it takes to be the best you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The moon lends you an extra dollop of influence. You’ll be surprised at how much feeling, meaning and inspiration you can deliver when you simply look into another person’s eyes and smile.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s rare when this happens, but it will happen today. You’ll get this indescribably profound feeling, and you’ll just know that you’re in the right place at the right time and it’s all OK.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 4). It will be an ego-boosting year, and you’ll have to be careful not to get a big head over all the attention you get! A new responsibility puts you in charge this month. Power doesn’t interest you, but making a difference will. You’ll trade in an old habit for improvements in June. July finds you more in love than ever. Scorpio and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 5, 50, 25 and 14.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “You always say that we Aquarius people are generous. Well, I believe I have a problem with volunteering, especially at my son’s school, with friends, helping at parties or helping at my church. I see something that needs improving, and I raise my hand. That’s probably a positive thing, except that at the end of the day, I have way too much on my plate, and I end up feeling overburdened. Then giving isn’t a joy anymore, and I find myself saying frequently, “What have I gotten myself into?” But giving is just part of who I am! So how can I ‘do for myself’ without feeling like I’m losing myself in doing for others?”
It sounds like you are suffering from an unrealistic estimation of your free time. While speculating as to their availability, some Aquarius people forget to factor in necessary activities: showering, eating, sleeping, having time for domestic duties and time to oneself. These activities seem so mundane that Aquarius forgets that they take time and are essential for health and happiness. The answer is to figure out realistically how much time a week you have available for helping others and take on only what neatly falls into that time allotment.

He signed a major label deal and is opening some shows on Taylor Swift’s Red concert tour, too. The young Aries has his natal Mercury and Mars in this fiery, passionate sign, as well, indicating the megawatt energy and charisma necessary to be a major contender in the pop world.
