Last Day of Winter

Tomorrow the sun moves into the springtime sign of Aries (or if you are in the Southern hemisphere, the autumn sign of Aries) with a promise of new development. This is the ideal time to clear a space for fresh excitement, projects and relationships. The most welcoming space will be both emotional and physical.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Nice people tend to eat what they are served. You are nice, but you're too aware of your appetites to unconsciously swallow whatever life dishes up. This is true both metaphorically and actually.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Those who don't know that there's a system in place will have a really hard time working that system. Realizing this, you will take the time to be savvy about how things work.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be careful of what you declare. Chances are, it will be an impulsive and half-baked declaration that you won't want people to remind you of five years from now. You're better off doing this: Walk it; don't talk it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You feel glad for what others post on social media, write in books and share in emails, while simultaneously having no desire whatsoever to contribute to those media just now.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your climb in an organization will be slow and steady. So stop measuring; you'll only be discouraged. Just trust that if you continue in this way you will one day find yourself at the top.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). After you make a few sacrifices, you can't help but feel that it's your turn to be on the receiving end of things. But if you are engaged in a relationship with a narcissist, good luck with that. Seek out the givers.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life gets easier because you loosen up your rules of friendship. It would be extreme to oust someone just because he or she doesn't pay the proper attention to the relationship. Instead, adjust the person's role in your mind.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't have to feel tied to one way (or a handful of ways, for that matter) of being. When it comes to how to do you, there are a multitude of choices, so don't be self-limiting.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Those who were once dependent on you now show small signs of being independent. It's a source of pride, although you should be careful not to draw too much attention to it. That could get in the way of the process.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just as retailers don't expect everyone who enters the store to buy, you should not expect to get a "yes" from every person who seems slightly interested in what you have to offer.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's like you're incapable of a selfish act lately. The thought of doing something exclusively for your own happiness simply doesn't occur to you -- although now that I bring it up, it might.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). New developments will open up your schedule. There finally will be time for you to get involved with the project or person you've been dreaming about.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 19). A special teacher will offer you guidance and support, but it's you who will do all of the work necessary to lift off to the next level. In April, a clever plan breaks you out of a rut. You'll succeed in a brand-new environment in May. June shows you cashing in on your patience, maturity and experience. August brings a surprising twist. Libra and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 3, 25, 1 and 7.

MOLEOMANCY SPECIAL: See the archives for information on birthmarks and moles on the arms, neck, shoulders and head. Continuing on down the body...

--Left Chest: A birthmark on the left side of the chest is a karmic indication of great heartache and/or physical energy in a past lifetime. Trust issues may be present in the person who possesses this mark, and he or she will wisely want people to prove themselves before any involvement, especially intimate, will occur. --Right Chest: A birthmark on the right side of the chest indicates the spirit of a fighter who will battle on despite setbacks, wounds or personal hardship. This is the type of person who "goes down with the ship."

--Left Upper Back: A birthmark in this area signifies a strong respect for justice and a deep desire to right the wrongs of the world.

--Right Upper Back: This birthmark indicates a tendency to take on extremely challenging endeavors and risk more than most people would dare to make them work. Precautionary measures, safety measures and plan B's might not seem appealing, but they are strongly advised for those with this birthmark.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: A little known fact about Pisces Bruce Willis is that he overcame the stutter he wrestled with for the first 20 years of his life before he rose to fame. The A-list movie star and producer was born when the sun and communication planet Mercury were in sensitive Pisces. His Saturn in Scorpio suggests great power through the integration of subconscious and conscious desires.
