Venus and Neptune square off on this eve of the Libra full moon. Normally, this would be a challenging aspect afflicting love relationships everywhere. But if it causes a riff today, it’s likely to be just the kind of tension that will make tomorrow’s full moon in kiss-and-make-up Libra even more sensational.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be keenly aware of fortune’s favor. You’ll have an excellent sense of what will be lucky for you. You’ll also note what is likely to be burdensome, and you’ll run in the opposite direction.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone cares enough to put on a theatrical show of emotions for you. This may pull at your heartstrings, or it may amuse you. Either way, you’ll find it flattering.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your reputation precedes you. There’s something in the way others approach you that makes you understand your position anew. This inspires you to do what it takes to keep your public image pristine.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Just when you start to feel that life is a super-long road trip, someone dear will take the wheel for a while so you can relax. It’s proof that your people love you for who you are and not strictly for what you can do for them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The funny thing about sensation is that too much pleasure will quickly become pain — ha, ha, ha. Moderation is the key to liking what you enjoy for now and the days to come.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You love your friends and family, but you don’t always want them in your business. Sometimes your door hanger is turned to “Do Not Disturb,” and that’s just how it goes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is joy and unexpected pleasure to be had by giving in to the wiles and whims of others. Tonight: Be careful not to defend yourself before you’re being attacked. That’s a sure way to show weakness.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do you feel an inexplicable pull toward the supernatural world? Your desire to fine-tune your intuitive skills begins with strong hunches and ends with an irresistible wave of feeling. Resistance is futile.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Work presents special challenges. You may experience feelings of jealousy, and if so, they’re something to celebrate. You’re being led to excel in a certain direction. The spirit of competition will keep you sharp.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Clinging to what you want only defeats your efforts. Let go. The old adage is so true: If it’s really yours, set it free, and it will come back to you. The art of detachment will liberate you both.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t always know what you’re doing. It’s beautiful — to those who understand beauty. Life is a creative process, after all. Your ability to improvise will come into play.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Coming up with solutions for the problems of the world seems to be your forte of late. You think no one understands the pressures you are under, but that’s where you’re wrong. Another Pisces can commiserate.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 5). Love connections strengthen this year as you create more experiences with loved ones. The next 10 weeks open your eyes and heart in new ways. Take a class in June. It will be such a fortuitous move that you’ll immediately sign on for another. Money in November adds to your holiday enjoyment. Your love signs are Pisces and Taurus. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 30, 22, 13 and 18.

FULL MOON EVE ALERT: Tomorrow brings the powerful Libra full moon. The meaning of it touches on many areas of life. For instance, if you happen to be involved in a court case, you could have a major breakthrough tomorrow or a final resolution. And if you’re a diplomat or a politician, you are likely to get a new understanding and awareness of the needs of your constituents. If you’re a dieter, you could finally lose that stubborn pound you’ve been struggling with for weeks. And while these are fantastic bonuses, the real gift of the Libra full moon is even better: love, sweet love.
The Libra full moon celebrates love in all its forms. Certainly the love between friends, colleagues, family, a higher spirit and the self are all covered in its glow. But so many will be holding out for a different kind of love, which is to say romantic love. Dewy, gooey, loony, moony, mushy love. Sentimental, tuneful, soulful, hugga-buggy, snooky-kissems crushy love. The kind of love a third grader might find gag inducing.

To take advantage of this sweet opportunity, think of tomorrow as another chance at Valentine’s Day. To whom will you give your amorous attention and how? Get creative!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: If she were alive, Bette Davis would be 104 today, and few would be surprised, as the spirited Aries diva seemed to have the kind of fire in her that would never burn out. Her natal good-fortune planet, Jupiter, was in Leo, the sign of show business. Where else would it be? And Davis was born under a quick-witted Gemini moon that made sure she had the sharpest tongue in Hollywood.
