Proactive Virgo Moon
The Virgo moon wants to handle all the details that will ensure a stellar weekend. This moon won’t leave anything to chance. It’s not for lack of trust in the universe. Rather, it’s because the benefits of preparation are proved. The early bird gets not only worms, but also discounts and more convenient parking spaces.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll hit a bout of non-productivity — alarming for someone as goal-oriented as you. Don’t fight it; ride it. Then absolve yourself and move on. This won’t put you too far behind unless you waste time beating yourself up about it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Why wait for a good reason to tune into the emotions of those around you? Provide opportunities to talk about life. Invite others to open up and express thoughts and concerns. It’s time to bond.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s a chance for new employment or a different kind of working arrangement. It probably won’t sound ideal at first, but you’ll never really know until you say “yes.” This is worth a try.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). A friend exclaims, “I can’t believe you went there!” But you’ve always “been there,” and the only difference is that you’re finally letting your true thoughts and feelings show through instead of repressing them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Opposing forces can provide a nice amount of tension — or they can pull so hard that they have a paralyzing effect. Avoid getting caught in the middle of a contest between particularly strong wills.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you’re thinking along certain lines, it’s easy to assume that others are on the same page, and it’s surprising to learn that they are not. Don’t obsess. Relax and be open to what people have to offer.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Wishing to be somewhere else is a waste of life. Give full attention to your current endeavor. You’ve centered your life on the thing that gives it meaning. Trust that you’ve made good decisions. You had your reasons.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you need help pulling things together, you’ll get it. You are surrounded by people with similar goals who like to give, share and support. This is an easy-going time for you, but you have to remember to reach out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Friends and family are fun-house mirrors that reflect a version of you that’s never quite accurate. Know that these distortions can’t be helped, and don’t believe what you see.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Effort is like money. If you don’t put enough forward, you can’t buy what you want, which is sad. If you put too much forward, then you’re overpaying for what you want, and that doesn’t feel good, either.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re not looking for a chance to demonstrate your experience and maturity, but it just so happens that one comes up. Take the time to get organized — a successful outcome depends on it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s a pressure on you to be interesting. Some would interpret this as a cue to posture, perform or even stretch the truth in order to entertain others. You know better. Nothing is more interesting than you being real.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 12). Your cosmic birthday present is immediately gratifying: You’ll get your way and meet a personal goal, too. Use strategy and problem-solving skills to earn big in August. September requires that you pay for training, which is well worth the expense. November and December show you in transition. 2014 brings a fresh scene. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 22, 38 and 49.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: To improve your romantic karma, change the aesthetics of your bedroom. TAURUS: A mix of forethought and boldness in the moment will create a memory. GEMINI: Seduction is most effective if you delay the end reward for as long as possible — but not so long that the other person loses interest. CANCER: No one likes to be startled. But your pleasant surprise is not too much of a surprise, and that’s what makes it so pleasant. LEO: The calm before the storm is an exciting, anticipatory moment in weather and in love. VIRGO: You set the stage for the other person’s next move with your gestures and with your eyes that reveal exactly what you want them to reveal. LIBRA: Boldness is rare. That’s what makes it so appealing. Be bold. SCORPIO: Love is pendulous. Emotions that reach a high pitch will inevitably swing low, too. SAGITTARIUS: Before you break a spell, be sure you’ve cast one in the first place. CAPRICORN: Fantasies are fueled by the unfamiliar. Don’t let an ordinary response spoil what you have going. AQUARIUS: You don’t want to change someone, but you’d like it if this person would follow your lead. PISCES: Keep proving yourself to the one you love.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Virgo and Cancer have a way of getting on each other’s nerves when they’re not falling in love. Should romance be this irritating? If you’re learning and growing as a person, you’re bound to be uncomfortable at times. Virgo and Cancer will change each other for the better as they learn to tolerate each other’s quirks. This weekend, it’s no bother as these two slip into a blithe and passionate mode.
