Gypsy Soul Moon

The Sagittarius moon is a gypsy wandering the sky in search of adventure. Excitement can spark in many ways — the intrigue of a stranger’s conversation, an unfamiliar landscape or a risky challenge. Let the wild impulse move you to explore. It will make coming home all the sweeter.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because the times have changed so much, new rules are more than necessary; they are essential to an orderly existence. And you’ll be in a position to decide just what those rules should be.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll only follow methods that make sense to you. If you find yourself questioning each move a leader makes, it’s a sign that you’re following the wrong person.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your guiding planet, Mercury, is backing into an auspicious arrangement with Venus. This may inspire you to take an alternative route to love. Your game is atypical, and that’s precisely why it will work.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll hold on to high aspirations even while being swept into the demands of daily life. Certain low-level tasks must be handled if you’re to be a successful human being!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Weariness happens. It’s a function of working day after day, week after week without a break. Since you’ll be planning the future today, build a few breaks into the schedule to avoid future episodes of weariness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The Mercury retrograde will help you see a relationship more clearly. Taking things out of context can be quite effective in helping you get to a “eureka!” moment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone might be sentimental about the way things used to be, but this is neither reasonable nor useful. So much has happened to change your approach. The best you can do is set an example by embracing the times.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be happy for the temporary nature of some work. You’ll be glad when the jobs come, and today, even gladder to see them go. Think of today as character building. Tomorrow brings more satisfying endeavors.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll meet new people and form an immediate impression — like a line drawing in a coloring book. Subsequent information will color in the picture, but that initial form will hold true, so pay attention.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A rebellious motive emerges in you. Why you suddenly have no desire to fall in line is a bit mysterious and perhaps a moot point. When you’re not into it, you’re not into it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No matter how well you think you know a person, there is always more to discover. And new people in your scene will be just the catalyst necessary to bring out a different side in someone you know well.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A certain project requires skills you do not yet possess. Instead of looking for a partner to fill the role, get some training. You’ll find that you are more talented than you know!

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 5). An artistic bent colors your year. Even your distractions will be productive. A serendipitous meeting that happens in the next three weeks will begin an adventure. In April, you’ll trade something you’ve had for a long time for an updated version. Finances improve in July. August brings a big break. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 24, 49 and 50.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Am I psychic? Sometimes I’ll feel really fearful for no reason, and I’ll read it as a bad omen. I’ll change my plans based on that feeling — e.g., I won’t leave the house to go to the store or whatever I was going to do. When nothing bad happens, I believe I have averted the danger. If I had gone to the store, maybe I would have been in an accident or something. Who knows? I could have been killed! But how can I be sure that I’m following psychic intuition and not some kind of anxiety disorder? — Sensitive Pisces”

The answer may lie in the frequency of these kinds of episodes. If this is a regular occurrence for you (which it sounds like it might be), then you could be letting fear, not intuition, get the best of you. While it would be foolish to ignore your inner guidance, if you let fear rule you, you’re not really living fully. So it’s time to get honest with yourself about what incentive you might have for staying home. Are you really just tired? Are you over-scheduling yourself? Is your stress level keeping you on edge? For a sensitive Pisces like you, rest and relaxation aren’t luxuries; they are a health requirement.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: While out grocery shopping a few weeks ago, I found myself sharing the aisle with one of the most physically beautiful humans I had ever seen in real life. In jeans and a sweater and wearing no visible makeup, Niki Taylor seemed to glow with the ethereal energy her mystical sign is known for. Taylor’s sun and Jupiter in Pisces are complemented by Mercury and Mars in philanthropic Aquarius.
