IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
Not only is there a new moon on your birthday but Mars, your co-ruler, is well placed too, and if you are in any way ambitious you will enjoy some kind of career or work-related breakthrough. You deserve this success
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Don’t try to convince yourself that everything is fine when you know it is not. Today’s new moon will force you to face up to a situation you have been trying to ignore. Deal with it and then move on.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
You need to get over any sense of embarrassment you might feel at revealing your innermost feelings. Even if you are the kind of Taurus who rarely gets emotional you must let it all out. Scream if you have to.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
If you want to enjoy a more healthy lifestyle now is the time to get started. Anything you begin over the next 24 hours will work out for the best, so long as it is within the bounds of possibility, of course.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
The new moon falls in the most creative and dynamic area of your chart, making this one of the best days of the year for getting things done. Draw up a plan and follow it step by step. Success is guaranteed.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
You can be rather sensitive, especially where criticism is concerned, but as from today you will feel a lot more positive about what kind of person you are and what kind of things you are doing. Criticism? Ignore it.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
You will have no difficulty at all today letting others know what you think and how you feel. But don’t go too far. Some things are better kept to yourself. Think of the embarrassment if they were made public!
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
Today’s new moon indicates that recent efforts and sacrifices have not been in vain. What you gain over the next two or three days will make up for what you lost earlier in the year – and then some.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
The new moon in your sign means that if you focus your energy in a single direction you will achieve something remarkable. Choose a path and believe it will lead you to the kind of success you know you deserve. And it will.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
You need to overcome a fear that has been holding you back. It’s important that you face up to it now because a few weeks hence you will be eager to move forward and you must be in the right frame of mind.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
Someone you meet on your travels today will become not only a good friend but also a colleague (or co-conspirator!) on a project that is close to your heart. Together you will make a singular impression.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
You are on your way up in the world. Yes, really, it’s true. Today’s new moon indicates that if you have a plan and if you make a serious effort to follow it there is nothing you cannot accomplish. Be brilliant.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
The new moon in your fellow Water sign of Scorpio will endow you with confidence and no end of good cheer. Try not to take anything too seriously but, on the other hand, be serious about your desires.
