Applause Moon

Passionate fire-sign energy prevails as the Leo moon leads us through the final day of the Sagittarian solar journey of 2013. High levels of motivation combined with ambitious aims make for action-packed hours. The Leo moon puts a spotlight on the entertainment value of our interactions, so be sure to applaud when it’s really good.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you ask, people will tell you a dozen different ways to accomplish the same thing. Today there is no bad advice, only advice that works for you and advice that doesn’t.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll say what you mean and be heard loud and clear by those who are on your wavelength. As for the others, you might be surprised at who they are. Were they just pretending to understand you before?

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When your aim is to entertain people, the worst thing you can be is boring. Focus less on what’s appropriate and what’s worked before, and figure out how you’re going to present things in a new way.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take social risks. The marvelous perk of this day is an endless supply of “do-overs” for fixing minor gaffes. As for major mistakes, you’re already too much of a pro for those.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s a good thing you’re living honestly, because today you’ll reveal the truth even when you don’t mean to. That’s how someone finds out the depth of your feelings.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Be careful in making your task list for the day. The difference between choice A and choice B may seem small, but it’s significant. You will determine what to do, and what you do will determine who you are.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your guiding planet is about to change directions, and you may feel that your heart is on the verge of a new direction, as well. Your feelings for someone won’t go away; they’ll just shift.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re allowing yourself to be led by a capricious spirit who will only give you mysterious hints as to her destination. It’s all in the name of fun, so don’t invest anything significant in the relationship.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As hard as it is to regulate that unpredictable force in your life, it’s even harder to regulate your own predictable nature. But once you’ve practiced self-control in one area, it will be easier to apply it to the next.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The changes that are coming tomorrow may have your mind whirring even deep into the night. This isn’t a good time to make big fateful decisions. Get some rest instead.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Just when you’re wondering whether an endeavor or a relationship is worthwhile, things will shift to show you that there is enough value there to warrant your perseverance.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll notice that everyone is looking to you for a bit of amusement. If you’re going to have a story to tell them, you have to get out there and experience life. Increase your involvement, even in the messy things.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 20). You’ll challenge your determination and earn a financial bonus before the year is up. Your popularity is at a comfortable level, though by February you may cut back on social obligations in favor of developing a project. March sees you building, selling and repeating. Family is enriched by your efforts. Aries and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 43, 27, 39 and 48.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You help a loved one in practical ways, but you’re also silly when it counts. TAURUS: You’ll choose your words carefully, hoping someone is attuned to you enough to read between the lines. GEMINI: Before you start a romance, give some thought as to how it is likely to unfold. This prevents you from repeating past mistakes. CANCER: Same partner? Then you’ll need new ideas in order to make this work for the long term. LEO: Don’t wait until you’re tired of talking to become a good listener. VIRGO: The most attractive person will be the one who is keenly aware of surroundings, people and the opportunities that lie therein. LIBRA: You won’t be able to accurately judge a potential love’s merits by assessing their family tree. SCORPIO: While trying to impress someone, the worst thing you can do is try too hard. SAGITTARIUS: You’ve mastered the romantic gaze and will effectively give away your intentions in a split second of eye contact. CAPRICORN: Your confidence tells the story that you’re comfortable with and proud of who are. AQUARIUS: Give your crush something to notice about you. PISCES: Don’t let another person determine the worth of your efforts.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Like the blending of two flames, Leo and Sagittarius are fire signs that once joined can’t be differentiated. As their flames become one, they are better defined by the result of their joint chemical reaction than by their individual efforts. With the sun in the last hours of Sagittarius and the moon in Leo, these signs will create heat and excitement with the projects they take on together.
