Whether or not you are religious, you may have an increased awareness of the spiritual nature of this life and of the feeling that emanates from the places, objects and people around you. If you are religious, the Pisces moon will stimulate your sense of duty, and you will be directed toward honoring your beliefs in a specific and ceremonious way.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The only thing better than doing your work well is doing your work well in front of people. You're not a show-off; you're just at home in the spotlight. So stand there a while and take in the applause.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll probably encounter an unforeseen snag. Fear not. Your skills haven't left you, and this bramble will be behind you in a moment. These are the kinds of minor challenges that keep you sharp.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The hurdles between where you are and where you want to be only matter insomuch as you allow them to matter. If you keep your eyes on the goal, you won't even see them.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're an expert at navigating change and finding the advantages it offers. In the next two days, an unforeseen event gives you the opportunity to prove this. A Virgo figures prominently in that scene.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some days, you feel like you're plodding along, dragging your feet through the puddles. Not today. You're a song in the wind -- dancing, singing and laughing all the way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Without committing to a systems overhaul of your life, you've recently made many substantive changes. You are not who you were a year ago. You are better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People make you mad. Some days are just like that. The good news is that you recognize a little of your own behavior in the circumstances and resolve to change whatever part of you needs to act out like that.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Someone needs to write you a fight song. You deserve one after all this training, perseverance and steadfast dedication. You are an inspiration to many, even if they don't say it outright.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Keep your curiosity alive. Imagine a way to arrange the obstacles in your path. Maybe the roadblocks could be stacked like stairs so that you could climb up and out. The win goes to the one who perseveres.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). For you, traveling isn't about getting somewhere; it's about the act of going. The feeling you get from hurling yourself into the unknown is an exhilaration that persists no matter the destination.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People who know you best will be quick to sing your praises. Even better: Their praises are the truth. You deserve all the love you get because you give so much away, asking nothing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It may feel a little weird, but give yourself a high-five. It's not quite the same as having someone else to high-five with, but some kind of congratulatory action is in order. You have triumphed.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 2). You'll enjoy how things turn out this year. The next three months are filled with elegant scenes. In August, there's a turn of poetic justice. You'll volunteer and meet kindhearted people in September. You'll create wonderful, memorable events in November and December. Your sweetheart is madly in love with you. Scorpio and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 14, 25, 40 and 48.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Be lighthearted and playful. Deep conversation and seriousness are a turn off right now. TAURUS: Lose some of your expectations, and a loved one will in some way exceed your wildest notions. GEMINI: What you lost with a past love you will gain with a new love. CANCER: You can thank an ex for shaping your current attitudes about love and romance. LEO: To become more attractive, you'll rid yourself of an addiction. VIRGO: You'll field many compliments. LIBRA: Once you deal with yourself, your romantic life will unfold in a most pleasing way. SCORPIO: You dress with flair, but also with class. A degree of decorum and restraint will make you even more beautiful than you are. SAGITTARIUS: You are driven to work hard and provide for your loved ones, and you deserve a partner who feels the same way. CAPRICORN: Drop the past and whatever happened so that you can focus your mind on what is going on around you. AQUARIUS: Love the relationship you have, not the one you think you should have. There is no "should be." There is only what is. PISCES: Talking about a partner is not appropriate, even if you know that what you say will never be repeated.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Pisces and Cancer are a natural -- if not a supernatural -- match. These two have a tendency to bring out the psychic awareness in each other. Not only do they sense each other's thoughts and feelings, but they often take them on. If one is in a bad mood, the kind thing to do is to stay away from the other. By the same token, maintaining a positive frame of mind is an act of love.
