Moon Plays Quality Monitor
The Taurus moon is a quality control expert, checking the integrity of everything that falls into our path on this opportunity-filled day. This earthy lunar influence provides an objective and highly discerning viewpoint. We’ll employ all of our senses to separate the good results from the excellent ones.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Be careful where you throw your energy. If you’re not absolutely sure, don’t go all in. A ram who butts into the bramble will find himself in a tangled-up mess.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you give people something to resist, they will resist it today. That’s why you would be wise to influence through your subtle example. Your presence is stronger than you know.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Doing the right thing in general will lead to specific improvements in the situation that most needs it. You have great powers of endurance that will lead to your eventual success.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are a bit like the tides — eternally faithful to the moon, forever carrying bits from shore to shore. Through you, lovely mixes happen. Lively varieties are born.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The moment of truth isn’t really a single moment; rather, it’s a series of small choices that add up to a particular destiny. You condition yourself by doing right in a million tiny ways.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your complexities are made obvious now. There are many polarities inside of you. An awesome power will come of accepting the strong and weak, the good and bad and everything else that makes up who you are.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Gravity is invisible, but you have no problem seeing its effect. Love is the same way. You only realize it’s there when people react to its power. Where there is no action or movement, love will go undetected.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It feels as though a cyclical force is pulling you along and it would be futile to resist it. That may be so, but you won’t know for sure until you are fully aware. The patterns and cycles of your life are a worthy study.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In some way, you are recovering your balance. Don’t expect that this will happen just once. The dance of life requires you to be in a constant state of recovery.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is a right way and a wrong way to fish. The right way is to show up where the fish are with bait they enjoy and wait patiently for a nibble. There are too many wrong ways to mention, as you’ll witness today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sometimes you feel that there is nothing more you can do other than submit to the fates. There are times when this is so, but this is not one of them. Take a long walk. You’ll return with new possibilities.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The outcome you desire will only be possible if you stay the course, maintaining your integrity in each situation. That sounds difficult, but every right choice you make will strengthen you.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 15). Regardless of what you want to share, promote, sell or achieve, you’ll meet the people who can help you reach your goals. Over the next six weeks, you’ll increase your responsibilities. Magically, your stress levels decrease. Conscientious behavior leads to making great money. You’ll travel in May and December. Aries and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 5, 14 and 36.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: For a relationship to succeed, all parties need to be basically self-reliant. TAURUS: You’ll amp up your appeal by playing to the strengths of your gender. GEMINI: Your flexibility will help you get along with people who are far more rigid in their approach to relationships. CANCER: Last week was different, but now you’ll feel that your romantic destiny is completely in your own hands. LEO: Quiet your thoughts, especially regarding your love life. Love blossoms when you stop letting your own mind harass you. VIRGO: You’ll benefit from being with those who are equally as kind as you. LIBRA: Follow your artistic interests. They lead you to growing your talents, and it won’t be bad for your love life, either! SCORPIO: The one who saw you as a buddy will suddenly have new feelings. SAGITTARIUS: Instead of worrying about the greener grass in other pastures, start landscaping your own. CAPRICORN: You have the potential for stunning eloquence. Write out your thoughts before you express them. AQUARIUS: Don’t settle for a piece of someone. Ask for it all. PISCES: When you let love chase you instead of the other way around, you give your feet and your heart a rest.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Taurus and Aquarius come from two different worlds. Taurus lives in the physical plane where the senses are always alive and receptive. Aquarius lives in the world of the mind — a far less tactile place where anything can happen. Because of their drastically different approaches to life, they are stronger for knowing each other. This weekend they may find that they’ve needed each other all along.
