The lunar move from the playful sign of Leo to the focused, efficient Virgo is like the bell that announces the end of recess. It’s not a universal message. For some, the sound is an intrusion to fun; for others, a sweet relief, as socializing is, for them, more stressful than formal structures of education. So, what type are you?
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t require people to prove themselves to you, yet they come through time and again. It’s because you see the best in others — and that’s exactly what emerges.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As a rule, you don’t trouble others with what you can do for yourself. But just because you can do a thing doesn’t mean you should. Given the sheer quantity of your responsibilities, perhaps it would be prudent to delegate.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are many others doing something similar to what you’re doing, and yet, rest assured, you measure up just fine. It gets even better when you leave the comparisons to others and focus on your own performance.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Had you been afforded the luxury of choice, you’d have opted for a simpler arrangement. But then you’d be missing out on these strange complexities keeping you so sharp.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll have to adjust your communication to fit your audience. Likely, the shift that’s needed is a move from the language of logic to the romance language of your heart.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you see someone who has what you want, you’ll think good thoughts, thus aligning yourself with what it takes to attract the same. What you seek is seeking you. Stick with what works for as long as it does.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Self-consciousness has a way of interrupting your flow. It’s like a kink in the cord connecting you to your power source. You’ll feel the most connected to who you are in those moments when the concept is irrelevant.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Stars turn up the intensity, and what you’re working on will need to be finished sooner than you were expecting. It will only make you work more efficiently! Take a well-deserved break tonight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have your hopes set on a destination, and you’ll eventually get there. But what if most of the fun to be mined is in these discoveries you’re making along the way? How would that change your mindset?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Fiddle with your emotional EQ to see if you can turn down some of the high-pitched noise interference happening in the stereo of your mind today. You’ll clear up disagreements so all can keep moving along.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The day plays out like a comedy in which crossed communication, wrong assumptions and silly mistakes merely contribute to the sweet satisfaction of an ending that ties it all together.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll repeat yourself out of necessity, passion and purpose. It doesn’t matter if you do it the same or a little different each time. It only matters that you stay the course, as this is important work.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 9). People will celebrate you for the same qualities you admire in others. It’s not a coincidence; you’ve molded yourself and will express the spirit of this creative masterpiece in new situations. You’ll clearly see who most needs you — acting on this instinct, you’ll forge a legacy. Sweet companionship will be among your most cherished gifts. Libra and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 12, 3, 38 and 14.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: He has the record for playing the highest number of consecutive shows at Madison Square Garden and Billy Joel (has sold the venue out again in this summer’s tour.
