Full Moon Eve
On the eve of the full moon in amorous Libra, love for love’s sake seems like a fun thing to aspire to. When the discerning Virgo moon gives way to Libra’s spell in the evening, it will be tempting to let go and invite romance to lead the way. Mars and Pluto square off in the night offering a backdrop of obstacles to thicken the plot.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some won’t want to poke around too much, believing it’s better to leave well enough alone. But you’re in the mood to stir things up. You want to know whether “well enough” could actually turn into “awesome.”
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Reach out to an unlikely candidate, and you’ll likely make an interesting connection and possibly have a brilliant conversation, too. It’s all part of your plan to master the art of living.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You prefer not to take sides when you don’t have to. Just because you’re diplomatic doesn’t mean you’re duplicitous. Neutrality is possible, if only for a limited time.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are hurting people in your midst. You want to make another person feel better, but you don’t know how. You really don’t have to worry about what to say. Your kind intentions will be felt.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes strangers meeting for the first time will act like people they are not. That’s why anyone meeting you for the first time today will be in for a refreshing change. You give it straight.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have everything you need to succeed today. You are creative, intelligent and well versed in the ways of the world. Power and money are not the aim; they are just a couple of the bartering tools you’ll use.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The timing of events that do not come off as planned will be perfect nonetheless. A moment sooner or later would have produced entirely different results. Be thankful for your peculiar sense about these things.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may think that what you’re doing with the afternoon hours is insignificant, but if you didn’t do it, there would be unforeseeable losses. We depend on one another.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you’re among people who are trying to act cool, the best gift you could give is a foolish gesture to break the ice and bring everyone back to their humanity.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you’re not in the mood to give, don’t give. Only that which you do freely will make a difference today. Better to do nothing and consolidate your powers than to waste your efforts by scattering them to the wind.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To move forward with a relationship, misunderstandings and misperceptions need to be cleared up first. You’ll do a brave thing: ask for candid feedback and calmly hear it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Many are jumping on a bandwagon that’s headed for a dead end or possibly a cliff. Be discerning. Ask a lot of questions. Those who don’t want to answer questions are hiding something.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 26). There are many kinds of travel. The next 10 weeks see you traveling with your emotions, going a great distance to bridge gaps between people. May features friends, parties and new connections. You’ll find financing for a dream in July. Your gift for communication gets a new project launched in August. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 25, 49, 31 and 15.
MARS SQUARE PLUTO TEMPER-CONTROLLING TIPS: Tonight’s square of Mars and Pluto promises to amplify the Libra full moon energy in strange ways. All of the wild impulses will want to be unleashed, and some shouldn’t be. With Aries energy strong in the sky, there will be many instances in which we’d do well to stay calm and control our tempers. Here are a few tips if you feel yourself starting to get swept into a moment of passion that is angry or negative.
–Remove yourself from the immediate surroundings. Walking out of a heated situation is like changing the channel. It’s amazing how fast you can return to a steady state just through the magic of different scenery.
–Do physical work. Angry energy can be excellent fuel for exercise and other kinds of physical work.
–Relax and let it be. Everything doesn’t have to be hashed out in one day. Wrongs don’t need to be immediately righted; dues can wait to be paid; grievances can be aired later. Just because you perceive something as unsatisfactory doesn’t mean you have to rush to solve the problem. Take a deep breath, calm down, and let it ride.
