The lively Gemini moon is in a gaming mood, bright and competitive. At this social zodiac hour, we are reminded how most of the games people play are not official competitions with rules but rather subconscious games with the primal agenda of establishing the social order. To do well in such a game, it first helps to realize that you’re in it.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). An interest that doesn’t snug well into the patterns and rhythms of your lifestyle is not likely to last long… unless it also happens to be extremely fun. And in that case, you’ll find a way to make it fit better!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are many ways in which you are not like the people around you. Today, you’ll be inspired to let them in on some of your uniqueness. You’re not so easily summed up, as people are about to find out.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your heart sparkles as you cultivate new pleasures and interests. In this way, attractiveness is an inside job. You’ll do the inner work, and the rest follows naturally. Bonus: You won’t need to bother with expensive products.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). In love and sports, it’s the same. There is no downside to building your endurance. The more you can take, the more you can give. The right mindset makes it easier.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Doing the thing will cause discomfort — so will not doing it. Choose the first type. The discomfort will be brief, lighter than expected, and you will continue on with a sense of accomplishment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Since every word you hear, read or say links your brain to something, it’s possible to travel to a moment of joy or trouble in the split second it takes to process a word. You’ll use and react well to the language of the day.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your perspective is valuable, and in the right company, it will even be considered a gift. Taking the time to carefully present your views is like wrapping that gift with a bow.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The world is trying to convince you to choose their product or service. If anyone is going to sell you on an idea today, it should be your own mind. How can you make choosing well a little easier for yourself?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The good news and the bad news are the same: People aren’t paying attention. Use this to your advantage. Where you lack confidence, fake it, and none will be the wiser.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). While it’s scary to jump in unprepared, the nervous thrill of action is far better than the sinking sensation of missing out. Anyway, opportunities usually don’t wait around until you’re ready for them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you get back reflects what you put in, though not directly. When you want something different than you’re getting, change your input. Tweaking is a normal part of the process.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Expert input helps you make the best choice. The people with the most useful perspective are the ones who’ve done the thing, which isn’t always the same ones selling it, or the ones in charge of it.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 3). The status quo no longer suits you. This solar return is a chariot bound for new altitudes. You’ll level up first in your personal life, adding joy and excitement to your weeks. Your work dynamic shifts, and you will work with a different team on projects with far-reaching purposes. A family member will closely follow your guidance. Sagittarius and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 10, 3, 38 and 14.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Country outlaw Eric Church is touring on his Gather Together Tour, featuring many songs from last year’s three-album release “Heart” “&” “Soul,” which was rather auspiciously timed within weeks of his solar return. Church was born when the sun and Mercury were in Taurus, a down-to-earth energy symbolized by the bull (ideal for cowboys) and the sign that rules the voice.
