As the moon slips out of imaginative Pisces, she goes void of course. Like the moments when a dream takes a turn from the realm of realism and becomes too bizarre to follow anymore, strange details may pop out for inexplicable reasons. But just because it doesn't make sense now doesn't mean it won't make sense later.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are days when you can get away with less attention to detail -- just showing up is enough. Today is not like that. Bring your best to the events of the day. Show up and be impeccable.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll do a stellar job, and the fruits of your labor will be something you can stand up for. Colleagues want to be a part of your work team in order to learn what you know.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your faith is like a muscle. It will be strengthened through exercise. Today's tests are perfectly made to prevent your faith from growing weak. There will be no shortage of unknowable things to believe in.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know what the truth is, even though you may want very sincerely for it to be something other than that. Face facts -- better yet, embrace them. Your personal power and influence will double.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A huge project may technically be over, but there are still many loose ends to wrap up. In some ways, you are not ready to move on. Be gentle with yourself. It's perfectly acceptable to linger in this space for a while.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be extraordinarily lucky, and it will all stem from your compassionate thoughts and deeds. One gesture of good will from you is all it takes to start a cycle of abundance rolling.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Match the intensity and tone of your partner. Work when the other person is working, and play when the other person is playing. Relationship harmony paves the way for good fortune.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It takes tremendous brainpower to make the most of your opportunities. So if you see an open loop, you should close it -- it's a brain drain. Tie things up. Finish what you start.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll get a chance to show your persevering spirit. The win always happens in the end. That's why it's important to be stellar when it's crunch time. Muscle through to the close.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Take honesty seriously even in trivial instances. This will build your confidence. It will send a message to yourself and the rest of the world that you can be trusted to act in an integral way in the large matters, as well.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Work fast so that you can love slowly. Your loved ones do not only want to feel the warmth of your attention. They want to lavish in it, too -- to feel that your love is never-ending.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Because you are so easy to be nice to, you'll be the recipient of many kind gestures and surprise bonuses. It's all on the up and up. There is nothing to be skeptical about. Your job is to graciously receive.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 12). You are a force for good. Those who misunderstood or even mistreated you in the past will realize the error of their ways. June's happy mood attracts fantastic energy to your love life. A stellar investment opportunity comes in July. Everything changes in September. Work picks up then, too. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 1, 31, 20 and 15.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My friend started calling me the One-Upper. When she first did it, I laughed, but inside I was really offended. Now I've let her get away with this name, and it's starting to stick. I think it's cruel. I've been told before that my personality is a little strong. But should I really have to tone down the things I want to talk about just because they might make other people feel insecure? I'm thinking about dropping my friend. Maybe she's just too jealous of me to be a true friend. What should I do? I'm a Gemini, and she's a Libra."

As two air signs, there are many points of connection between you and your friend. Your conversations are lively and intelligent, offering real insight and fun. It would be a shame to throw this away because of one incident. While you shouldn't feel you have to downplay your fabulous life, it is important that you give your Libra the moment when it's her turn to shine. Born as an astrological twin, you are naturally competitive, while it's in Libra's nature not to compete, but to balance and support. Ask your friend to drop the nickname, and in the future, try to share the conversational glory more equitably.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: This actress played an actual celestial star in the fantasy picture "Stardust" -- not much of a stretch for brightly shining Aries Claire Danes. Danes' natal chart boasts career planet Mars in Aries, as well. This former teen star is moving gracefully through her third decade -- now a newlywed whose work in the HBO movie "Temple Grandin" is garnering rave reviews and Emmy buzz.
