Sensitive Pisces Moon 

The psychic vibrations will be felt by the shaman and the seer. They also will be felt by the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker and your mother — that last one goes without saying. These days of the Cancer solar transit heighten the maternal bonds that stretch through moments and lifetimes. 

ARIES (March 21-April 19). What’s the deal — can material things really make you happy? Today it seems like maybe they can, or at least they can make you temporarily giddy. The proper upkeep of your possessions attracts more to you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You put off an aura of power — some would even say you are intimidating. An associate might be white-knuckled because of having to report to you. Put someone at ease, and they’ll do their best work. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Couples hit their stride and work together beautifully. Singles: Look for someone who already fits your qualifications. Otherwise, you wind up in a romance based on molding someone, which is exhausting!

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everything starts with the germ of an idea, but wishful thinking is just that — take action! A Scorpio or Pisces could give you that push off of the diving board, but it’s up to you not to belly flop. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You turn disharmony into something good. The tension makes you move, solve, forgive and love again. You’ll do something excellent with the energy that springs from this situation. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are quick to laugh today. When someone seems to be working to make you giggle, you might interpret the effort as a sign of deep personal interest. You would be correct. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t need to add anything new to your life now. There is exciting potential in places you didn’t think to look before. You’ll derive great pleasure from exploring something that has been there all along. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What started as a game will now feel much more serious, but don’t worry — you can still change the rules if you want to. Decide whether to continue as before or try a new arrangement. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve hidden your talents from those you sensed wouldn’t understand or appreciate what you can do. Now you’ll let people know who you are, what you stand for and how you live. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you’re around a certain someone, you tend to let down your guard. There is something irresistible about your vulnerability, and it draws a certain someone nearer. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Unforeseen challenges will show up, and it’s something that can’t be helped. But what can be helped is your level of commitment. Decide to work through whatever comes and do what it takes to realize your dreams. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Does your mind keep following a line of reason that happens to be unreasonable? Ask for help in breaking the mental chain. Talk it through with a friend. You may be able to unravel this mental tangle with minimal effort. 

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 16). The bonds of love will cement over a shared interest in the next six weeks. You’ll stand in the August moonlight and proclaim your love. There’s a fantastic bit of financial luck in September. Invest in yourself. October shows you changing a situation that no longer works for you, and legalities will be addressed. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 21, 22, 48 and 7. 

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m tortured by my neighbor and how incredibly attractive she is. She’s been alive in my thoughts for years. Of course, neither of us is single, so there’s nothing to be done about it. Still, lately she’s all I think about. How can I get a person I’m not really in a relationship with out of my mind? It’s hard to get over someone when it’s all in your head. I’m a Gemini, and so is she.” 

It’s mature of you to realize that this attraction is a mental habit and not an actual relationship, and yet that doesn’t really help matters. Your highly developed Gemini intellect is a playground in which you have created the perfect playmate. Your neighbor served as a blank canvas for the exercise, and now she lives in your mind as an ideal. 

Have you considered moving? Because your signs are ruled by Mercury, it might help to think of this problem in terms of a daily habit. Seeing your neighbor’s front door makes you think of her, and this sparks a series of thoughts that have been built upon and reinforced on a daily basis through the years. Not seeing her front door every day could fix everything.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: What will Will do next? Another drum-off with one of the world’s greatest rock drummers? A fight with a late-night talk-show host over whose pants are tighter? Maybe he’ll make us cry in a serious role, or make us laugh by bringing together an all-star cast in one of the funniest movies of the year. In any case, Cancerian Will Ferrell will be as changeable as the moon by which his sign is ruled.
