A perk of living alone is that you have greater control over your attention when you're home and can focus on what pleases you. A perk of living with others is that you never know what disturbance or delight is coming to keep you on your toes. Whatever your living arrangement, celebrate that state as the moon is in Cancer, the sign of home.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're somehow involved in a game of chicken, and it's still unclear who is going to back down first. Of course, it will be the one who needs to be right more than they need to be smart.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone believes that he or she is contributing to your happiness. Is that really the case, though? If so, perhaps reward is due in the form of appreciation. If not, it's time to communicate your wants more clearly.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are so empathetic today that you will echo the feelings of those around you with your own heart. It is therefore important that when you need to get something done, you work where you won't be disturbed.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are very important to all of this — vital, even. Inseparable, actually. The ocean is the wave, and the wave is the ocean. So don't waste a minute doubting your relevance. Jump in and contribute.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's said that it's not the having or the getting that bring happiness, but the giving. If this is true, why is it so much fun to have and get? Anyway, you'll experience all three today. You'll get; you'll have; you'll give.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The light is different in each different place, in each moment, and so you'll see things differently. Fortune favors you as you refrain from making statements or decisions that are absolute in nature.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's a flow to all you do today. Does it really matter how this is happening? Don't stop to analyze whether this comes from within or moves you from the outside. Just enjoy it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The easy way is actually the hard way. Push past the fear that makes you want to back down from the action — from the thing that must be done to move you into who you want to be.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Beware of what looks cool but can't deliver on its promise. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. In some cases, looking cool is important, but sooner or later the piper must be paid.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Emotions, responsibilities, relationships, possessions — all baggage. Baggage is necessary. That's why we pack it for the journey. But the more you have, the more it weighs, the more you pay.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Following the path of least resistance is a way to get moving, but once you're moving, you'll want to take charge of where you're going. Just remember that all traps have easy, juicy offerings up front.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are no improvements that happen without difficulty. You pay with work or sweat. You pay with money you earned or someone earned. There was effort somewhere in the chain. Today you're deciding what's worth it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 20). It's like you can grow things with your eyes. You see the good in people, and they will become better because of it. Also, you'll focus on the part of your financial life that's working the best, and you'll wind up making what you need to move forward with a venture with the potential to free your time and your mind. Pisces and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 11, 28 and 18.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Stagnant water loses its purity, and stagnant relationships start to stink as well. TAURUS: You have a picture in your mind about what your life would look like if you had your act together. The person who makes you most feel like that picture will win your heart. GEMINI: Your wishes will be important to someone trying to impress you. CANCER: You'll meet an intriguing person with a fascinating history who knows how to let you in on it in an entertaining way. Score! LEO: You want to offer people all you can, but you're wary of those who would take too much. VIRGO: Going the distance for love isn't always romantic. Sometimes it's a pain. LIBRA: Keep private information on a need-to-know basis, because some of your friends have big mouths. SCORPIO: What works for one situation is inappropriate for another. You'll navigate expertly. SAGITTARIUS: People are attracted to the ones who make them feel as they most wish to feel about themselves. CAPRICORN: Attractive habits make for attractive people. AQUARIUS: You respect the one who plays by the rules, especially if this person has the opportunity not to. PISCES: The relationship needs some new ideas, and you're the one who's going to come up with them.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Water mixed with earth to create the primordial mud that all life sprang from. Cancer and Taurus are this kind of creative pairing. It's not always pretty, but it's mighty productive when they really get into a tight bond together. This happens through trust. Taurus takes a long time to give that in relationships, and Cancer takes even longer. But this is the weekend when they're ready to exchange vows.
