Doing good deeds can still be a feature of this week, especially with fund raising for Tibet now in full swing. But Venus and Mars angle up well too today and with these two planets those of love and romance, what does this overall combination mean?
Well, perhaps where we can make some sacrifices in our relationships, we may find them all the more rewarding. Obviously when this is a two way street, this can be a very nice state of affairs. But doing something extra thoughtful for someone we care for today can make both us and them feel good. Even a kind text message or email, could make someone's day. If you are lucky enough to be really loved up, things could be blissful.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The Moon asks you to look after life's basics today. However, with the Sun angling up to Neptune, finding a spark to focus on practicalities may take some self-discipline. Speaking of which, if you find yourself tempted to splash out on something that would save time, don't be too impulsive or you could waste your money.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Although the Sun, Mercury and Mars can help you to be more single minded just now, today specifically could see you much less bound up with your own needs and more open to those of people around you. This may see you less concerned with goals and objectives and more inclined to connect with friends or associates.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your logical side will be much less to the fore today, in fact you may find that you are picking your way through an awesome dream from last night, or finding that your imagination is taking you to some new, and very interesting corners of your mind. If you work in an artistic or caring role, you can do extremely well.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you have an interest in more spiritual strands of life, be it through personal development, healing or religion, this can be a time of heightened awareness. Embracing and better understanding your total needs could be uplifting. You and a friend might even discuss a spa day, perhaps indulging right away or booking for the future.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The Sun is angling sweetly to Neptune, which when it comes to your financial or business affairs, suggests imagination can be helpful. But then again, you may find yourself in a more compassionate frame of mind. If you are someone interested in charitable activities this could be a day when you make a significant contribution.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Even if you are a very no-nonsense Virgo, one who likes to see hard and fast evidence of how situations look, someone very non practical could impact strongly on your senses today. This may run all the way to tuning into a completely new philosophical outlook, to meeting someone with a mystical aura who bewitches you.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The Moon is locked away in the "quiet sector" of your 'scope today, and this could see you preferring to take a step back, and mull over some key issues in your situation. However, what counters this is the role of your ruler Venus which is much more outgoing and even inquisitive. Look out for one deeper strand that grabs you.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
An exchange today could really lift you. However, it won't necessarily be a really obvious scenario, and a seemingly innocent conversation you have could settle on your senses afterwards in a much more impactful way. A gentleness pervades close relationships too. Little blockages and resistances can fade away.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
You may find yourself inclined to be more sacrificing around your role today. This could play out at work or at home and see you happy to take a task off a colleague or family member, and uncomplainingly at that. This can also be a good day to do something gentle and healing for yourself, such as a walk in nature.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Someone may need a little bit of tender loving care, and you can be the one giving it. But this could soon become a rather lovely two way street. It doesn't matter who you give some affection to - whether it is a much loved pet, a friend or a family member; just that it might be enriching for you, and for them Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Our personal identities are so, so important. If you are fortunate enough to be part of a group or family where yours has been constantly reinforced, today can see more evidence of this. If this has been less of a factor in your past history, look out for the person or people who are sensitive and encouraging towards you.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Your co-regent Neptune has had a truly amazing impact on the heavens in the first part of this year and continues to do so today. This, along with the angle it forges to the Sun, can help you to express things with great care, and even delicacy. With the Moon also in your relationship sector, this is a fine day to open up.
