A square of the Virgo moon to Mars calls for an assessment. What do you have and what do you need? Accounting is thorough in the realm of Virgo, though sometimes we are not the best at noticing our own assets, which turn invisible with familiarity. Mars in social Gemini suggests pulling in the assistance of outsiders for this audit — brilliant!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Not everyone needs to know everything at once. The reason flash photography is forbidden in zoos and museums is that some illumination can be harmful. Consider what would be helpful to know; start there and go slow.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The plan you’re pursuing has a flaw that, though it might be glaring to some, is difficult to see from the inside. Run your ideas by friends and mentors, or at least say them out loud to hear what they sound like in the open air.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though you tend to your loved ones, customers and community with great care, you sometimes forget to apply the same attentiveness to your own needs. Your relationship with yourself is the most important one you’ll nurture.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your greatest triumphs have come after picking yourself up from a fall. So, you’re not afraid to slip up, and in fact you stretch yourself, knowing that if you make a mistake, it will be an opportunity for resilience and learning.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Of course you’re not solely responsible for the way the world is now, or even the way things are in your community, work or family. But to whatever extent you can influence the scene, you’ll certainly try to make things better.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Adventure involves an element of danger, not necessarily physical danger, but there’s a sense you’re risking something and that’s where the thrill comes from. You’re up for exploring and you’ll have the adventure you seek.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be involved in a group effort. Though there may be some competition inside the group, a rival from the outside will have you working as teammates in no time. Develop a strategy that will allow everyone to win together.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You think about the details and herein lies your advantage. You consider what kind of impression you want to make and do most of the work beforehand so as not to risk seeming like you’re trying too hard in the moment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The disharmony resolves. What a relief! You can return to normal life, or more likely a new normal, with a better sense of how precious a smooth, uneventful experience really is.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Frustration is caused by the belief that you need to do something in a particular timeframe for the experience to be acceptable. Pretend that you have all the time in the world, though, and the frustration vanishes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You accept that your choices have led you to this point, but it’s still not where you intended to be. Don’t bother retracing your steps; just decide on a new destination and go forward.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Buried pain has a way of staying buried until someone acts as a kind of personal pain detector, alerting you to the problem under the surface. Such a person is invaluable. You’re ready to dig this out and resolve it.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 15). You’re the kind of friend who thinks ahead about what others might need from you. You consider the expectations of others and strive to exceed them. In this spirit, you’ll be effective in relationships of all kinds, and you’ll be paid and celebrated accordingly. More highlights: a transportation upgrade, surprising weekends and entry into a club. Libra and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 12, 18, 45 and 29.
