There’s plenty of mindless chatter and distraction to occupy us during the void-of-course Gemini moon. Superficial and sensational interests are the equivalent of empty calories. In the same way that it’s better to eat nothing than to bulk up on leftover Halloween candy, it’s better to do nothing than to waste brain space with nonsense.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone is waiting for you to make the first move. Once it’s made, sparks will fly, and there will be no going back. So be sure this is really what you want.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What should be familiar territory doesn’t seem to be at all. That’s because a new person is involved, and this person changes everything. Pause to come up with an approach that will better suit the current scene.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know you’re in love when no matter what a certain someone does you think it’s just adorable. Others may not share your opinion, but you’re so enamored that they’ll probably think you are “just adorable,” too.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You got where you are by making a series of choices. You’ll break them down in your head to figure out the particular choices that were the most effective. You want to repeat them in order to get to the next place.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll probably need to bounce from Plan A to Plan B. And be sure to make a contingency plan if that one doesn’t work out, either. Luckily, whatever happens will be more fun than any of the previous plans.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ve always sensed that you were the rock in someone’s life, but you’ll feel it more now that he or she is leaning on you. Ground yourself, as this feeling could last through the weekend.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Being nice is important to you, not only because you think it’s the right way to be, but also because you know that kindness is contagious. With your graceful handling of a situation, you’ll teach compassion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The one who finds the gold doesn’t have to start the rush. You’ll find a kind of treasure that has great value to you. You’ll also be smart about what to share and when.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be learning from someone else, possibly someone intimidating. Having more knowledge doesn’t make a person better than anyone else, but it sometimes makes a person believe this is true.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In regard to a certain relationship, you make it seem like you are letting things unfold according to their own timeline. But truthfully, you’re playing it cool, very much in control of the pacing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A healing process is underway. You can’t speed it along, but you can take good care of yourself, putting yourself in the kind of supportive environment that will allow nature to take its course.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A loved one may openly disagree with you, starting a lively debate. You may actually enjoy the argument and gain something valuable from it. Diverse opinions and talents make a relationship strong.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 2). This year brings a surge of personal power, and you’ll conquer the fear that once held you back. December sees you rise up along a chain of command. January bonds you with a small group of like minds. Together you will be unstoppable. You’ll invest in your appearance or transportation in March. May brings a windfall. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 28, 38, 41 and 2.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll plan surprises to keep your love from getting too comfortable. TAURUS: You’ll remember this weekend for the sweetness and humor a loved one brings to it. GEMINI: An intriguing stranger will become a good friend. CANCER: The moon in your sign casts even more magnetism over your attractive aura. Do you even want all this attention? LEO: You will be drawn to generous and secure people and repelled by those who talk too much about themselves. VIRGO: One of your more unusual wishes will come true. LIBRA: Venus in your sign reminds you that your female friends are an invaluable part of your social network. SCORPIO: You’ll approach love with the same passion you’ve lately reserved for work. SAGITTARIUS: You and a partner will hit the town running this weekend and cover much ground together. CAPRICORN: You’ll find yourself in an unusually cuddly mood, enjoying the idea of snuggling and just being close. AQUARIUS: You’re likely to give in to a partner’s wishes; it’s just easier that way. PISCES: The level of attention you give to romance is about to change, reflecting a change of heart.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the moon goes home to Cancer this weekend and the sun warms the Scorpio part of the sky, these two water signs will blend into a sweet cocktail. Scorpio will find Cancer’s wit intoxicating, and the crab will be equally taken with Scorpio’s straightforward style. The Scorpion speaks the truth, especially on the topic of all he or she wants, needs and desires from a relationship. Cancer finds this refreshing.
