TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 25). You’ll reach a prize-winning level of mastery in May and then start a new venture as an amateur, refreshing your spirit through the learning process. June ties your heart to another through a shared adventure. Your philanthropy in August will build your legacy. An important professional decision must be made in October. Virgo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 27, 17, 32 and 4.
Theatrical Leo Moon. As it is on stage, costumes, lighting and setting can have as strong of a bearing on the action as the performers can. Environments, clothing, ambiance and the like will matter greatly, as the Leo moon brings a theatrical flair to the sensual Taurus energy that prevails in the sky. Revel in the details that set the scene for your life.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You desire to become more disciplined, and yet the very thing keeping you from being able to do this is the demanding lifestyle you currently keep. Is it possible that what you need more than discipline is tenderness?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In ancient Rome, merchants carried money in baskets made of fiscus, which is how, over the centuries, things to do with money came to be called “fiscal.” Today, luck centers on your own version of a money basket.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s possible that a certain persistent fear exists for a good reason. Then again, maybe this fear is just a bad habit you can break yourself of. Test both theories out today.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). This is a time for extreme self-care, the likes of which you once would have considered too indulgent. When you don’t feel at your best physically, it is hard to be at your best in any other way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are those who feel it’s hip to be cynical, but cynicism isn’t insightful or helpful or any more “real” than sweeter commentary. Anyway, support and optimism are more attractive modes of communication.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The path you didn’t take will be a source of wonder. Perhaps you’ll never know the version of you along that untraveled road, but there’s something about the wondering that will make you live differently today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Aesthetics will matter to you even more than usual. Your mind expands when you’re in the presence of beauty. Loveliness helps you see more possibilities for yourself and others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Tension in the morning doesn’t have to negatively charge the rest of the day. Address and heal relationship problems quickly so you can get on with a wonderful time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The quality of your friendships matters more than the number of them. One friend who gets you on a deep level will bring you more joy than dozens who don’t see you for who you are.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Feeling hyper-alert, you’ll notice the kind of subtle beauty that makes your day feel poetic. You’ll also be prone to getting tired or overwhelmed, so go easy on yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Knowing that a thought process is irrational doesn’t make it any easier not to think it. But at least you can joke with yourself, which will make it a whole lot easier to lighten up and change the mental channel.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can feel it when people harbor resentment for one another, and it hurts you even if those people appear to be getting along. Because you can’t be fooled, avoid couples in disharmony.
