If Your Birthday Is March 5

Actress Eva Mendes (1974) shares your birthday. You are a productive, creative, imaginative person who is extremely secretive and private at the same time. You seem to live your life more intensely than others. Go slowly this year. There is something important to learn. The first half of this year will seem slow, but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results! Get out into nature this year.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The powerful Full Moon might affect your relationship with co-workers and customers. The way to handle this is to simply be patient because everyone will be emotionally heightened, impatient and ready to get their belly in a rash. Be chill.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today’s Full Moon has an intense edge to it because big daddy Pluto is also in the picture. This could put you at odds with friends, romantic partners and kids. It might also create a testy relationship with members of a group. Patience is your only recourse.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today’s Full Moon pulls you between the demands of home and family vs. the demands of your career and public reputation. Actually, you have a chance to enhance your reputation for the better. Don’t overlook this. As difficult as it might be — grab it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be careful because this is an accident-prone day for you because of the energy of the Full Moon. Controversial subjects might land you in hot water. Do be careful if people get excited about politics, religion or racial issues. Just keep a lid on things — at least, for today.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Something might come to a head regarding taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances or anything where you are responsible for the wealth of others. Whatever happens can be turned slightly in your favor or improved in some way. Be hopeful.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place. Naturally, you will feel heightened emotions when dealing with partners and close friends. Others will feel this way as well. That’s why your closest relationships will be a bit strained — just briefly, at some point.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Both your health and your work, especially at a job, will be somewhat challenged because of the Full Moon energy. But this is temporary. Don’t be worried. The key is to avoid arguments and not say something that you will regret.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Even children and pets feel the energy of the Full Moon. This is why you must be patient with kids, especially your kids, because anyone can easily have a hissy fit because of the pent-up energy of the Full Moon. Romantic partnerships might also be strained. (Yikes.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is one of those classic Full Moon days where you are pulled between the demands of home and family vs. the demands of your career and reputation. Naturally, you can’t keep everyone happy. With this particular Full Moon, you cannot ignore home and family.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is an accident-prone day because of the Full Moon. An accident doesn’t have to happen, but your excitable response to events might distract you and cause an accident. Therefore, be like the yogi ordering a hot dog on the street: “Make me one with everything.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Financial matters might come to a head. Or perhaps this could be heated discussions about shared property or possessions? It is possible to improve your situation or improve something that you own. Look for ways to do this.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place. Naturally, this will cause strain with partners and close friends. For your part, you will have to remain mellow, tolerant and calm. Time for dark chocolate.
