Hippity-Hoppity Easter!

The date of Easter changes from year to year, but it is always the first Sunday after the Paschal full moon. Under these auspicious spring skies, the Easter Bunny will be enthusiastic and possess all the stamina of his cousin, the Energizer Bunny. The Aries sun angles the Sagittarius moon to send March off on a high note.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). As Pluto forms a challenging angle to Venus in your sign, you’ll be concerned with the deeper matters of your life and legacy. Rest assured, you matter immensely not only to your loved ones, but to the human story.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your all-out efforts make life exciting. You wouldn’t want to run at this intensity all the time, but it’s better to do excess in moderation than to do moderation in excess.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People like to be around you because you don’t take yourself too seriously. Today you’ll be even more flexible, curious and outgoing than usual. If your original idea doesn’t work, you’ll make a quick switch to a new strategy.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). As your dreams change, so will your life. Already you feel like some of your plans just don’t apply anymore. Your day will reflect the shape of a new desire growing in your heart.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). That which is always with you and inside you becomes you. So if there is something that you know is not working in your life, now is as good of a time as any to cut it out before it assimilates into who you are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll get the choice between now and later. Choose now. Later may disappear as we follow a string of moments and choices that lead to an entirely different era. Seize the moment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re full of ideas, many of them good but only one of them possible at a time. Be wary of adding new projects to your life, because they will take over in unexpected ways.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It feels like you’re the one pulling a relationship or project along — always making the first move, the next plan, the follow-up. You like being a leader, but it gets old if you’re carrying the whole deal.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The moon in your sign inspires the feeling that you’re in the right — and you probably are. But as always, you’re better off when you keep that gorgeous mind of yours open to different points of view.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You feel a kinship with those who intend to make a new and better life, but do not follow them. Align only with those who are actively making time to do something about those dreams.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This is no rerun of yesterday. It’s a full-on, top-to-bottom new day. Repeat the successful actions of the past at your own risk. It’s better to push into the future with new uses for and combinations of old ideas.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The echo of life can be heard clearly through today’s fun. You’ll like what people reflect back at you, perhaps without even realizing that the only reason you can see it is because it’s a part of you.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 31). The best way to sharpen your instincts is to use them! You’ll feel your way through April, making gut-based choices. May shows you in an entirely new and strangely wonderful place in your personal development. New relationships begin then. You’ll sign a deal in June. A friend accompanies you for July travels. Cancer and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 33, 28 and 14.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: When people encourage one another to forget the past, they usually mean to forget the bad stuff. But this week’s stars encourage you to forget some of the good stuff, too — especially what worked well and brought you success. OK, don’t forget those things entirely; just don’t depend on them for achievement as you enter the brave new world of tomorrow. Even though the basic spiritual laws of success are unchanging, repeating the same actions in a completely new environment won’t necessarily lead to success.

The first week of April will bring the ideal mood for spring-cleaning in many areas of life. The Aries solar journey likes to remind us that the world is always changing and refreshing itself. The Sagittarius moon at the top of the month drives that point home, opening our minds and encouraging exploration and expansion. One way to stay current is to keep asking yourself what a newcomer might see if looking at your picture from outside a window. With the prevalent cosmic energy in Aries, the sign of beginner’s luck, it’s the ideal moment to adopt the approach of a newbie whether or not you really are one.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aries Christopher Walken has appeared in more than 100 productions and keeps turning in stellar performances at an impressive rate, with several films currently in the queue. Particularly interesting will be his portrayal of Zeus in a film about Greek gods living in modern-day New York. If you were to guess Walken’s natal moon, I bet you’d get it right! It’s in eccentric Aquarius, of course.
