ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today's New Moon falls in your sign and indicates the start of several weeks during which you're more cognizant of what's really important to you and brings happiness. Do what gives you joy to be successful.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Some changes are for the better. New acquaintances might sweep into your life like a breath of fresh air and alter your perceptions in the week ahead. As part of the global community everyone you meet is related in some way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): The proof is in the pudding. Major changes may bring the prospect of big rewards in the week ahead, but could cause unexpected consequences, too. Ensure that the results of a desired change are worth the trouble.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Tense circumstances require tender loving care. The week ahead might present several challenging situations. Keep your cool and don't go off half-cocked. The new lunar cycle might offer a chance to entertain unusual ideas.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Train an educated eye on ways to increase your net worth. Finances might be affected by social or government changes in the week ahead. As things break down, you might be able to pick up the leavings.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Gridlock might lock you out. The New Moon falls in your solar house of partnerships, so relationships might be of interest during the next several weeks. Tensions that begin to build now might last several weeks.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Deal with little criticisms or mistakes that crop up before beginning something new. A wave of enthusiasm might tempt you to make large expenditures, but this is not a good week to initiate major purchases or changes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Starting something new this week might seem like an uphill climb. It's a far better idea to contend with existing situations and keep your money in your pocket. Be prepared for unexpected bills or cash outlays.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A bad case of media frenzy might grab your attention in the week ahead. Move forward with business as usual and don't get caught up in political situations. Avoid starting key projects or making crucial decisions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Affection, not perfection, matters. In the week to come, you're better off working side by side with others than trying to go it alone. When you notice someone's faults, remember that nobody is perfect.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Focus on your future in the week ahead. Take a vacation from mass production by eating more food that grows naturally on fewer highly processed products. Grow healthy, wealthy and wise.
IF MARCH 30 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Logical conclusions lead to inspiration during the next 6-8 weeks. You're apt to be more romantic and your thinking will be open to endless possibilities. Late May might be a good time for a vacation or weekend trip, just to get away from it all. Mid-August through early September is the best time to make crucial promises and decisions. That is a perfect time to look for opportunities to better yourself or to launch something of importance because your judgment is at its best and luck is on your side. If something doesn't pan out, it wasn't good for you in the first place.
