New Aries Moon

The new Aries moon wants your wishes, and he’s in a generous mood, too. You don’t only get three; you get as many as you can think of. They won’t all come true, but they have a much better chance than those wishes you never make. Late at night, the moon shifts to plant your wishes right into the ground of earthy Taurus.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you want the work to go quickly, it seems to thicken on purpose, requiring that you trudge through it. Once the work sees that you’re willing to slog it out, it will take pity on you and let up.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll get an interesting quality of attention as you present yourself in a way that is slightly different from what you would normally choose. This is only the beginning of your next evolution.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be challenged to articulate your needs and wants in a way that someone very different from you can understand. It won’t be easy, but if anyone can do it, Gemini, the sign of communication, can.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The best thing you could do in a tense situation is relax. Others will breathe easier when they sense that you are doing the same. If you can’t relax, at least smile, take normal breaths and pretend that you’re relaxed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your intellectual gifts will be featured, and you’ll stretch your broad mind into the areas that you’ve been curious about lately. New information, books and teachers will all be available to you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are trustworthy, loyal and resourceful. You know this about yourself and take it for granted. You may even consider these strengths to be boring. But they are not — not in the spunky way you present them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You cannot empower another person, because it’s really up to him or her to step into the position. You can, however, provide a smooth ramp to the power spot or, better yet, a ramp covered with a red carpet.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People will try to connect with you by throwing out interesting things for you to latch on to. But the lures don’t have the right bait on them, or you’re not hungry enough, or you’re not in the mood to be reeled in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It may feel as though you have to be someone else in order to plug into a certain scene. If only you were free to express your unique perspective. Wait! You are!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your style is changing. The in-between times when you know you can’t stay where you are but you don’t yet know where to go are the most awkward. They’re also the most exciting.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s nice when you get recognized by someone you admire even if that recognition comes in the form of a simple greeting. Such a greeting may bring you back to that schoolgirl/schoolboy crush kind of feeling today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). They won’t understand you — and so what? Thankfully, the rules that govern your self-esteem do not mandate that you must be understood at all times.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 10). You are passionate, creative and committed to what you believe in. These qualities lead you to surprising connections, and you’ll get to see parts of the world that few people have witnessed. June features strange occurrences that will go down in your personal history. In August, you’ll shine in a public forum. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 33, 25 and 13.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: I usually have strict rules for dating, things that impress me, milestones along the way that I must hit before I’ll move things to the next level. But somehow this Aries caught me off guard. I don’t even think he took me out to dinner once. One minute, we were strangers, and then we met, and it was instantly like we were meant to be together nonstop. I saw him as often as I could for three weeks. Then, just as suddenly as it was on, it was off. I’m devastated. I know I’ll never meet anyone like him again. — Forlorn Virgo.

Welcome to the fire-sign version of dating. Dates may or may not be included. This sign is in a hurry to make a connection. Fire cannot exist without devouring what it touches. That’s the way of passion, and it’s a fire-sign strength. They need connection more than anything else in relationships. The good news is that fire signs mellow with experience. Once they burn through a few relationships, they will see the merit in one true love. Maybe. Luckily, Virgos are smart and reasonable, and you’ll get over this one in half the time it took to develop the relationship.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Pretty Little Liars” star Shay Mitchell is a fiery Aries who was born under the reasonable influence of a Virgo moon. This fire and earth combo is the perfect balance, made even more auspicious by Mercury and Venus in Pisces, the sign known for empathetic alignment. With the communication planet and the love planet both in the sign of empathy, Mitchell can easily slip in and out of characters much different from herself.
