The ancient Greeks attributed the life force to an internal “Promethean fire” by which the heat of passion was lit — or was the fire passion itself, by which life was kept lit? On days like today it feels as though we live for love and not the other way around. The Pisces moon pokes the flame with angles to Neptune and then Jupiter.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It may seem radical to you to think about what’s in it for you first and then decide if giving makes sense. Many people operate like this every day. Anyway, it’s best for today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Traveling takes planning. It’s the plans you make long before you really must that will be the most economical. Do it now. It will help you ramp up the excitement over the months to come.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You never want someone you love to feel alone, especially not in your presence. Life gets busy today and there will be a lot competing for your attention, but nothing will be more important than the ones you love.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you and your partner are on the same side facing the problem together, it will seem very small against your joint effort. But if you approach it as separate individuals, the problem will seem insurmountable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The small dog goes ballistic when a very calm larger dog walks by. This is insecurity in action. Feeling vulnerable can cause a serious loss of grace. One has to be strong to be gentle.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Perhaps those who travel in a pack will be an intimidating group force, but each individual gives something up to have this kind of impact. Would it be worth it to you? You could be more effective as a lone wolf.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Lava flow, aurora borealis, glowing jellyfish: all natural phenomenon that can nonetheless seem somehow otherworldly and miraculous. You’re providing some such phenomenon today. Be careful how you wield your power.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll do your best for the people around you, and truly you can do no better than that. Don’t push too hard, and don’t relax either. Love and encourage yourself without getting too comfortable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You need color and fun in your world. It’s energizing. When you lose your sense of humor, you’ve passed the point of productive work. Take a break. It will give you the gumption to keep going.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Self-generated restraint is honorable. You’ll be credited for this sort of grace. They don’t have to know why you developed it — i.e., you’d rather limit yourself than be limited by others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Avoid gambling or speculating with your money today, as the current astral lineup could have you feeling as though you can’t go wrong. Tomorrow will bring a more accurate picture of risk.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The bottom line is that you need to get to a top line. There’s a larger spiritual and creative picture that governs your life, and you’ll get a better vantage on this as you sail up and up through your imagination and intuition.
