DIY Wishing Well

How do you make a wish? Some do it on birthday candles, others on stars. You could do it by throwing a penny into a well or while brushing a fallen eyelash from the cheek of a loved one. One of my personal favorites is to wish on the Aries new moon, a cosmic genie of sorts. Tonight is the pre-party, and it’s a perfect time to get your wishes in order!

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are wary of doing things that you expect the general public will find impressive, because you don’t seek attention or reputation. It’s more important that you quietly serve your key people.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you talk about what you’re doing, sometimes you don’t sound so enthusiastic. Are you more excited than your expressions suggest? If not, how can you drum up more enthusiasm?

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can’t control how other people take your words. When what you say inspires an unintended consequence, you’ll suddenly find yourself on an interesting ride into the psyche of another.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The feeling that your options are limited brings on a self-fulfilling state and one that is far from the truth. When you are aware of the situation around you, you will have more options.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes it feels like you never, ever, ever get a break. Everyone seems too focused on what they want to consider your part. So instead of waiting around, give yourself the break you need.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Try to envision the long-term picture for every decision you make today. Short-term gains may feed something shallow and immediate while starving a deeper part of you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those who have a reputation for being difficult may have cultivated that perception for a long time, but you’ll break through it with your kindness and attention to detail.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don’t mind if another person wants to take charge, unless the task has already been assigned to you. Just know that it’s only because you make it seem so fun that they can’t help but rush in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Efficient interactions are preferred in business, but when it comes to your pleasure, things don’t have to be so buttoned up. Loose, lingering and meandering connections will bring you joy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The menacing creatures of the woods usually come with sounds to match their nature: roars, growls and the like. But in the civilized world, the ones to watch out for may coo with enticingly smooth tones.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You feel comfortable enough to take action in certain situations but not in others. Pushing to the edges of your comfort zone is favored today, but crossing into territory deep beyond them won’t help anyone, least of all you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s too much to be accomplished for you to abandon the plan, though you may decide to approach it differently — namely, with a smile. You are playful and fun, but you will stay on task all the same.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 9). People feel comfortable around you because you communicate warmly, purposefully and succinctly. It’s a skill you’ll continue to cultivate this year to great effect. Relationships of all kinds blossom over the next 10 weeks. You’ll cash in on an investment in March and July. You’ll accept a stellar offer in October. Pisces and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 4, 13, 24 and 10.

HOW TO WISH: Aladdin rubbed a lamp. Jacob rubbed a monkey’s paw. From the fisherman who caught a magic fish to countless movie characters in need of a plot device, the act of wishing runs through storytelling ancient to modern. And a common lesson of these stories is that people typically don’t wish wisely: money and riches, love underserved, positions unearned. Such wishing is bound to bring about unforeseen circumstances and an “I told you so” along the lines of “be careful what you wish for.” So how could you cast your wishes wisely on this eve of the Aries new moon?

1. Word your wishes well. Write down the phrasing, and test each word for integrity, clarity and specificity. Do this as if you were communicating with someone who would translate your words to a mother tongue or to someone half-deaf.

2. Don’t wish for money. Figure out what you’re going to do with the money, and wish for that instead.

3. Wish for something that will help others as it is helping you.

4. Tack on “this or something better” for good measure, acknowledging to the universe that your view may be limited compared to that of the creative spirit that animates the cosmic wishing well!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Jackie Evancho is the little girl with the big voice — and the big record sales to match. This pint-sized opera singer embodies the fresh spirit of Aries, a sign of youthful enthusiasm. It’s juxtaposed with old-soul powers of communication that come with her natal Mercury in Pisces, the sign of maturity. Her Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in Taurus, the sign that rules the voice, is a most auspicious alignment for singers.
