New Moon Eve
Maybe every day should be a fresh start, but even cockeyed optimists would agree that the concept is easier said than put into practice. Human behavior is built on habit. We wouldn’t advance very far if we had to make each day up from scratch. Get ready to take advantage of tomorrow’s fresh start under the newest new moon of them all in Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll help someone you don’t know well, and because you are so well matched to the task, this will feel as natural to you as your right hand helping to wash your left hand.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The worst kind of news to spread is the sort you do not have firsthand knowledge of. This will rule out about 90 percent of what you hear today, but you’ll find much better things to talk about.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be more sensitive than usual to the ridiculousness of the world. Instead of forcing yourself to tolerate it, allow yourself the retreat of home, solitude and doing exactly as you please.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s said that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. You will minimize the danger by seeking to learn all that you can and refusing to share or act on that knowledge until you’ve gone deeper.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Dare to expect more from your underlings, children and students. Do you have a system to keep them accountable to those expectations? If not, this is the perfect time to create one.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to give your love to someone, and this person will accept your gift as long as you seem to also love all of the people and pets he or she is attached to. You might think of this as a package deal.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Doubting whether you are qualified to speak on a subject, you may choose to ask questions and listen instead. You eventually will get the chance to express yourself, and when you do, you’ll command the right kind of attention.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The bad deals, rotten events and difficult relationships of the past weren’t for naught. This afternoon you’ll do something useful with what you’ve learned.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are an explorer, and so you understand well that the world doesn’t begin and end with your own experience of it. Your open mind keeps you forging ever forward through the weekend.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your spirit has a mission that you are not fully aware of, and yet when you follow your feelings, you’ll be pulled toward the very thing that will best fulfill it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll do some type of trimming. From hair to hedges, relationships to personal property, the rules of cutting are the same: Measure three times, cut once.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Someone who has been distant from you will now seek to get back into your world. Note that being seen as an equal is important to this person, so choose your approach carefully.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 29). You are selective about the company you keep and protective of your time, and this is part of what attracts the best and brightest to you this year. A changed plan in April will bring tremendous luck to your personal life. Forbearance pays off in May. Special training leads to a promotion in June. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 1, 37, 42 and 47.
MOLEOMANCY SPECIAL: See the archives for information on birthmarks on higher parts of the body.
Toes: Have you ever wondered how your life would be different if you were assigned a different seat in the first grade? Would that seemingly small detail lead to making a different best friend, falling into another social circle, learning to interact differently? How would it contribute to future opportunities and romances? If you believe such a thing as a seating assignment could lead to an entirely different life, then you believe that details matter. The reason I bring it up is because toes represent the details that keep us connected to this life and to one another.
Birthmarks on these appendages represent significant interactions in key relationships that play pivotal roles in our choices and destiny.
The big toe represents the father and father-like figures. The next toe represents the mother and maternal figures. The middle toe stands for a sibling or sibling-like relationship with a boy. The fourth toe represents a sibling or sibling-like relationship with a girl. Toe five represents the kindness of strangers and acquaintances.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Breaking records is one of Aries’ favorite things to do, as the firstborn sign of the zodiac feels comfortable in the frontrunner position. Case in point: Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, a.k.a. Lady Gaga, broke records in the music industry with singles that sold more than four million copies each online. Gaga was born under a sensual and controversial Scorpio moon.
