This Taurus moon is a hungry moon. She wakes us up, not only to the grumble in our stomach, but to the void in our self-esteem or the gnawing need in our heart. Sometimes she mistakenly thinks a shiny new possession will fix the problem. And other times she tries to fix everything with chocolate. Get wise to her misguided efforts!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Putting it off until later will only compound the problem. Make this your mantra: "Do it now!" For bonus points, you might add: "Before someone else does it."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do you want control? Do you want to feel you have control? Those are two different things, but what they have in common is that they are both mostly illusions today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you try to make a difference, you get the same rush of satisfaction as when you actually do make a difference. So why not just try? That's the cosmic lesson of the day.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sweat and breathe heavy. Make your physical fitness a top priority. This will be purifying. You'll feel like a new person afterward. Lucky exercise partners are Pisces and Virgo.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are easy to talk to, and you'll make friends whenever you reach out. If you're in sales (And, on some level, who isn't?), this will be the day you cash in.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It may be impossible to understand where a loved one is coming from, but don't give up. Answers will come. Be patient. In the meantime, take care of you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Stay focused on the realm of "now" instead of worrying about the realm of "then." News media and stories from friends could cause a vague sense of dread. Who needs it?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The manual work is a mixed blessing now. While folding clothes or sweeping the floor, your mind will work on the more perplexing tasks. You could solve it all with one load of laundry.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The more energy you pour into a relationship the stronger the bond. This is not always the case, but you're lucky enough to be in a mutually satisfying relationship. Of course, you created a lot of that luck.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The challenge is bigger than you are. That's the kind you like the best. You're not one to let opportunities slip by when you could be rising to the occasion.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You would push the "easy" button on your life if you could. You're still searching for it, though. It has something to do with repeating a successful action 100 times.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't think of yourself as having more creativity than others, but that's not the point. It's the kind of creativity you have that makes you special. Your "art" will surprise people.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 13). A minor adventure will lead to a more substantial journey in the weeks to come. Your stellar attitude will make it so. You'll recognize a juicy opportunity in July and make the most of it. Street smarts, practicality and financial savvy will help you turn a profit in September. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 11, 20, 45 and 16.
STRESS BE GONE! YOUR ASTROLOGICAL GUIDE TO CHILLING OUT (PART 3): LIBRA: The same social stimulation that's stressful for others is calming for you. Getting out and mixing with new people actually relaxes you in a weird way. Plan it and follow through. SCORPIO: Relaxing your muscles is a way to relax your whole attitude toward life. Start at the head, and command yourself, hypnotist-style, to relax one muscle at a time right down to your toes. If there's one person you'll listen to, it's you. SAGITTARIUS: Humor is the anecdote to stress. Your funny friends will be your best friends. CAPRICORN: It's hard for you to let go because you're something of a perfectionist. Just try. Open your hands and release. AQUARIUS: Go forward. You'll be accepted and embraced. Reach out, and another person will reach toward you to close the space. Think the best of people, and your open mind and heart bring out the best, too. PISCES: Use your talent for choosing the perfect name for things, because it's all in the perspective. With the right framing, you'll give your goals, projects and responsibilities the magic of your claim.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: A poster child for versatility, Tim Allen has played everything from an intergalactic superhero to Santa Claus, with a few family men along the way. The one constant is that this Gemini, with his natal Mars and Jupiter in Gemini, is always funny. Allen's star continues to rise to infinity and beyond. Look for Allen in the television series "Last Man Standing."
