Anyone born after February 18 this week is a Pisces, which is a water sign, and as such is sensitive, kind-hearted and the best of the best when it comes to procrastination.

A Pisces person is sensitive, psychic and often has vivid dreams of things to come. This sign is also creative and they need alone time. The world as we know it can be an extreme challenge to a Pisces. And when they are overwhelmed by the world they need to go off and spend some time alone to refresh and revitalize themselves.

They are also highly aware of the pain around them and are always willing and able to help. As a matter of fact, Pisces are often found in the helping community. They like being of service to the underdog. They are daydreamers and love fantasy and often are found working in the movie industry or using their imagination.

Steve Jobs and Elizabeth Taylor were both Pisces.

People born this week: Patty Andrews, February 16, 1918; Paris Hilton, February 17, 1981; Molly Ringwald, February 18, 1968; Haylie Duff, February 19, 1985; Rihanna, February 20, 1988; Jennifer Love Hewitt, February 21, 1979; Drew Barrymore, February 22, 1975; Patricia Richardson, February 23, 1951,

Whitney Houston, who died on the eve of the Grammy awards and in the same hotel where her mentor Clive Davis was holding a big party, was a Leo born on August 9, 1963. And then we have Adele, who took home six Grammys on Sunday night, is a Taurus born on May 5, 1988. If you were like Beyonce and Jay-Z and missed the show, you missed a good one.

Some remember when Whitney was young and innocent just like Adele. Whitney started out in New Jersey and is headed back for her funeral. Our blessings are with her and her family.

The new moon on Tuesday is great for new starts. Mercury goes retrograde on March 12 in the morning and stays until April 4 in the early morning. The best day this week will be in the afternoon on Tuesday.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Any hustle and bustle you face should bring a smile to your face since you are the type who loves chaos. With that in mind, know that you may feel the impact of the new moon, which happens on Tuesday as emotionally as a full moon.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) The hectic times right now could be trying and you mightfeel some people don’t understand you, but be patient. After all, Jupiter remains in Taurus and will bring you some good luck and plenty of energy. A new face on your social scene could prove to be an important person.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You are definitely headed toward an argument unless you use great patience and self-control. Try using your energy at the gym or on the tennis courts. Otherwise, this will be a week to remember. If you are able to avoid the debates you can look forward to a new romance, or at least a fun flirtation.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) You may feel like life is a double-edged sword and you may be right, but don’t let it get you too involved. After all, you have had situations in the past that looked a mess and they turned out fine. That will happen now if you let it. Just stay calm and things will turn around.

Leo (July 21 to August 20) Find some opportunities for fun and then enjoy yourself. After all, no one enjoys applause and attention like you. With that in mind, this is your week to be the top dog and get your way. Just stay alert and don’t let any chance to shine pass you by. A new venture will prove to be a positive move.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) If you are not having an adventure, either at home or work, then you are just too busy to take in the good times. You have a distant admirer who you will meet if you just get out into the action at night. Otherwise, you will miss the real fun. Let some new adventures happen.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) There will be no stopping you if you just take advantage of the energy all around you. A new project is what you need and once the new moon hits on Tuesday get things underway by Wednesday p.m. Otherwise, you are missing a golden opportunity to improve your life.

'Apple Season' in New Jersey

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) If you are looking for a change of pace, then sign up for a new venture and put yourself into the main stream of it. This is a perfect time to bring more responsibility into your life and take on the increased joy of doing a good job. No more delay – get on with the adventure after Tuesday.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) A stroke of good luck will add to the excitement in your life. With Mars forcing you to review some issues it would be wise to step out of your usual circle and try something brand new. An old flame could turn up looking for some fun. Just remember the past and walk away from it.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Be as creative with your money as possible now. You need to follow your past experiences in the financial field and use your knowledge and experience to make even more moves. Bring your confidence in your field to the marketplace and do what needs to be done.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) Your theme should be give, give and give more. During this exercise, just remember you get back what you give out. A new friend is offering you some good advice. Try following what you know is right and success will be yours – more success than you ever thought of. Just do the work.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) You are involved in a busy time and your spiritual life should be moving along briskly since Neptune is now in Pisces. Stay away from any alcohol or drugs since you could easily become challenged. The challenge will come from the influence of Neptune. Try meditating instead.
