Abundant Aries Energy

Aries is a fire sign with a penchant for pyromania. The sun, the moon and Uranus are all in this powerful part of the sky now, and so whether burning calories or old memories, excess energy or hours of the night, you should have no fear of striking that match. It's also an excellent time to sweat, which will seem to cleanse both skin and soul.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your curiosity about another person becomes more pronounced. You'll wonder how this person prioritizes and spends the hours and what this person does for pleasure and duty. It will be better not to find out all at once.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Rituals bond us. Consider whether a certain relationship that seems to be drifting along and possibly apart could use a ritual as an anchor. The best rituals come organically, but sometimes you have to create them.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though you may wind up working alone, it will feel as though there is a gentle hand on your back pushing you along, holding you up or patting you with encouragement accordingly.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't want to do what you ought to do. Being bored doesn't have to do with a lack of creativity. It's being duty bound to options that leaves you feeling uninspired. At this point, novelty is an actual need.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are people who will always be home to you no matter how far away you may be from them. They are part of the reason why you don't feel alone even when your mission is solo.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Asking yourself, "What do I do if something goes wrong here?" is not pessimistic; it is just another way of taking care of yourself. The fact that you have a Plan B will give you confidence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Today's contest is like an Olympic event in that the margins will be extremely slim between the top winners and, say, seventh place. You can be No. 1 if you want it enough to push yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll be shopping for the right teacher to give you the skills you will need in a highly competitive environment. Forgo the flashy one for the practical one with the tried-and-true methods and tangible results.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are genuinely committed to the greater good of the group. If the others are mature enough to set personal agendas aside, you really will make progress as a collective.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's impossible to bring your full attention to what's unfolding in one relationship when several other people are vying for your attention. It will take some thought and planning to develop a precious tie.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You genuinely care about the success of another, and whether or not you act on or speak of your feelings, he or she will pick up on this. You're just waiting for the right moment to help, and it will come soon. Be patient.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you have to influence a person who does not seem to want to budge, it's tempting to see this person as an adversary. But if you can see your prospect as a dear loved one instead, you'll have much better luck.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 31). You strive to keep a clear and harmonious field of interaction between you and all you love, work and play with. This will make your year great. Love deepens next month. You'll work as hard as you play in June and July. There's a change in family dynamics and much bonding in August. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 48, 30 and 16.

VENUS UPDATE: The love planet will have a sign change on Saturday, April 5, when she exits the friendly realm of Aquarius for the spiritual sign of Pisces. Because she's on her way out, the next few days are like the end of a fire sale: a good time to take stock of the last bits of inventory, because once it's over, it's really over.

So the burning question is: What has your love life offered you since March 5th when Venus entered Aquarius?

Chances are, the theme was more platonic than romantic. When Venus is in Aquarius, she likes to remind us that companionship will take up more of our hours than the other kinds of love, and that if love is to last, it's important to find compatibility on many levels.

Venus in Aquarius also likes to bring our attention to questioning our responsibility to humanity as a whole. How are we contributing? Who is better off because we exist? If we can love another person, shouldn't it follow that it's possible to love all people? These are a few of her favorite questions in this part of her cycle. Answering them now could have a profound effect on your week.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Christopher Walken just may answer last year's burning question, "What does the fox say?" as he is rumored to play The Fox in an upcoming production of "Pinocchio." Sooner than that, Walken will lend his unmistakable voice and one-of-a-kind talent to the starring role in Clint Eastwood's movie musical "Jersey Boys." Walken was born when the moon and Mars were in quirky Aquarius.
