Cancer Moon Break

This week already has brought us a Grand Cross, a close encounter with Neptune, a fiery sign change for Mars and a quincunx. That’s why today’s gift is such a pleasure: the gift of feeling right at home. The moon moves into Cancer, the sign of domesticity, issuing an invitation to take a breather. Kick back and relax.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can get approximately the same hamburger on three out of four corners of the main thoroughfare. In cases where the differences are minimal, you’ll find it so hard to choose that you’re likely not to choose anything at all.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t take anything too personally now. Instead, focus on what needs to change to get a desired result. This is likely to start with a resolution to think positively and take the action steps to support those thoughts.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have an advantage in competitive environments because you don’t do what the other competitors are doing. You remember or discover your own strengths and lead with those.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Unfortunately, many people are self-involved and myopic. That’s why when you meet a like-minded curious and observant type, as you will today, it’s important to make the effort to befriend that person.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The person who is making everyone laugh may be doing so intentionally for the financial benefit. As one Greek tragedian said, “It is a profitable thing, if one is wise, to seem foolish.” — Aeschylus

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Important decisions are on the docket. You’re not interested in the choice that seems like the best one to everyone around. You want the solution that actually is the best because it’s the right fit for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You could do it alone, but that would be stealing someone’s chance to help you. Giving you their help will raise their self-esteem, skill level and commitment to your relationship.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Consider that the person who is less than friendly toward you may be under an enormous amount of pressure. Lead the way with your love, compassion and patience.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may feel torn between your need to keep things moving and your desire to be nice. Consider issuing a gracious invitation for someone to join you on your way to another destination.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you make people laugh, you create such a positive feeling for all involved that you want to repeat it over and over. Alas, the laws of comedy dictate that it’s only really funny the first time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a very unobtrusive way of getting information. Your best lead will answer the question that starts out: Do you know anyone who might have some ideas about…?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your cosmic gift of the day is poise. Your actions will be graceful; your gestures, well received. You could really take advantage of this by taking a social risk or going dancing.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 30). You’ll enjoy a degree of fame this year. You may have to cope with people whose interests are opposed to your own, but this is part of what makes you stand out favorably in September. October shows you successfully representing your talent and the talent of others. December and May will be your biggest financial months. Aries and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 49, 29, 4 and 35.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll have a fantastic time without necessarily knowing what you’re doing. TAURUS: A relationship that is quick on the uptake may go downhill just as quickly. Pace yourself. GEMINI: Words will lose meaning if you say too many of them or express the same ones over and over. CANCER: Your wires of communication will get crossed with delightful results. It’s like you can do no wrong with your love. LEO: You will somehow alleviate emotional problems without bringing them to the surface. You’ll heal with your forgiving heart. VIRGO: You’ll make someone’s dream come true in a very basic way. LIBRA: You’ll show your love that you can pursue goals and still have fun at the same time. SCORPIO: You like attention, but you hate to be controlled. If the attention comes with strings attached, you’ll sever them. SAGITTARIUS: Use imagery to explain how you feel about your love. You’re capable of creating truly beautiful mental pictures. CAPRICORN: You’ll build your love’s self-esteem with your tenderness and encouragement. AQUARIUS: You deserve to be appreciated. PISCES: The one you don’t see very much will drop out of mind — and maybe that’s a good thing.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Cancer and Virgo are an excellent fit this weekend, as the moon goes home to Cancer and the sun shines in Virgo territory. These two will want to stick close and do projects together. What they build collectively will be more important to them than the affection they pass back and forth between each other. Together, they’ll be a strong force in the world. Apart, they’ll miss each other like crazy.
