A water-sign trine will release some of the week's stresses. What mattered a great deal yesterday has less of an impact on today's proceedings, though little may have changed about the circumstances. It was difficult to see it yesterday, but the morning light of the new day makes us see the enormous difference that attitude can make.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make things simple for all: Give to yourself. It would be helpful to your loved ones because they no longer would have to guess about what you need or what will make you happy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your patience is legendary, and here you go again today, sticking with projects long after others would have given up. Someone is falling in love with your quiet strength and fortitude.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): In some ways, you feel like you've been punished in the past. So it's only right that you should now be rewarded for the adjustments you've made. You'll like how this reward unfolds.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): There's an interpersonal volley in both work and play, and you have a talent for serving up something that's easily returned. The better you interact with others the more successful you're likely to be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have a low tolerance for the kind of surprises and spontaneous changes that come from an unorganized system. You'd rather spend hours creating a better system than running with one you don't trust.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There will be eager pupils around you. You are willing to share and help, but you correctly sense that not all of your methods will work for others. Their development will happen in stages.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Don't be too quick to give up what you have to gain for what you don't. Look deeply into the trade you are offered. The values that matter most in this deal are not so obviously determined.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): There's nothing static about relationships. You expect changes and structure your life accordingly. The smart way is to check in often but not obviously to assess how things are working.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll be rather selective about what you pay attention to, and that is only smart. Why learn what you can't apply? Once you see the practicality in a solution, you'll be eager to know more.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Not wanting to miss an opportunity to be generous, you may feel compelled to give more than is necessary or even appropriate - and it's not a move you'll ever regret.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have a talent for putting the right people together, and you'll create scenarios that never could have happened without your expertise, instinct and involvement.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You're no party animal, but you've mastered the secret to maintaining a robust social life that many party animals mess up time and again: You go home when you're tired.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 25): Something gets settled in the next three weeks, and you can take this as a good omen for future business.
In May, you'll communicate from the heart and start an exciting chapter in love. June and July are for building what will be in your family for generations to come.
In September, you'll be well paid for solving a problem. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 22, 38 and 4.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: When you're with an exciting someone, the moments pass too quickly and leave you with a craving.
TAURUS: Find good help for around the house and with your kids (if applicable) - your love life depends on it. GEMINI: If chemistry is too fragile, it's a sign that you could do better with a stronger match. CANCER: You'll love the one who jumps in to save the day. LEO: Your love is rare and true and best invested where it will be appreciated. VIRGO: The one who won't give you feedback is either withholding or incapable of it - either way, you lose. You deserve a responsive love!
LIBRA: Take advantage of all of the gifts within your current status, which is perfect for the moment. SCORPIO: You have your eye on a romantic target, and you'll spend the weekend learning.
SAGITTARIUS: You'd rather invest in a person than in objects. The time you put into someone will pay off.
CAPRICORN: It would be better to say "I love you" in actions instead of words. AQUARIUS: Doing something novel together will bond you with a love, though repetition of a past date will be a turnoff. PISCES: Love suffers under the weight of too much information - go slow.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Aries and Taurus may be zodiac neighbors, but with the sun in Taurus and the moon in Aries, these two look at each other as though they have never met.
We are headed toward the Taurus new moon, and it's an ideal time for Taurus to connect with the people who will matter a great deal over the next four weeks.
Taurus appreciates the youthful sparkle and feisty countenance of Aries.
