Capricorn Moon of Responsibility
The Capricorn moon insists we get something done so we can present it to the powers that be. If there are gold stars to be earned, many will compete to earn them. Everyone wants an excellent report card to bring back to the parental figures. If you’re the authority figure, your attention is a coveted resource now.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Bottom line: Your life feels full because you care about those around you. But if you live totally for them, who is the one doing the caring? You can give of yourself without sacrificing your whole being.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The reason you are so persistent is that you can see the end goal in your mind’s eye. Without this clarity of vision, you would have lost heart long ago. Paint the picture for someone who is having trouble seeing as well as you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t expect anyone to build the world you want. You know that not only are you the most qualified to do it, but you’re also the only one who will create it to your specifications.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll notice the quality of people’s character and their way of connecting. Your gift for crisp, accurate sight allows you to choose the best person to receive your attention.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your dreams are like a net that you toss into the ether — and you never know what they’ll bring back to you. New people, places and things will populate your life just because you put some force behind those dreams.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have a gift for communicating well now. Use it to say what you couldn’t say before, or use it to speak for the one who has no voice. You and a Capricorn share a special connection.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Pleasure is not the absence of pain. This is partly why doing just enough is actually not enough at all. Go for the wow factor, or what’s the point?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your friends will want you to conform to their wishes, and it will be mighty tempting to join the group. However, by not honoring your own wishes, you may be doing the world an even greater disservice.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Keep your cool when the work gets hard or the stakes get raised. Today is like a reality game show: all hype and edgy music. Don’t panic, and you could win this one.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). For you to really love someone, the physical, emotional and spiritual components must all be in place. Two out of three isn’t enough for you. You’ll strive for a multidimensional connection.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your bravery is like an invitation to the world to open its doors to you. Those around you assume you can handle the big adventures, and so you are given more opportunities.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Emotionally, you are like a sea creature. You have no fear of the deep waters; it’s the shallow water that gives you a fright. Do not mistake the lighthearted for shallow, though. They may quite simply be happy.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 11). You’ll sway opinions and woo people with your declarations. Have fun with your influence, but don’t take it too seriously. You’ll enjoy yourself even more when someone else is in charge next month. December adds intensity to a relationship. There’s a big buildup to a wildly successful January event. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 41, 44, 38 and 13.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: It’s strange, but you’ll reveal more about yourself in an unfamiliar situation than you will in one that’s familiar. TAURUS: When you learn something fascinating about someone, it doesn’t spoil the mystery; it only opens a new mystery. GEMINI: You have the urge to move from your tight spot and grow in a new direction. It’s not an escape; it’s an experiment. CANCER: You may long for the earlier stage of a relationship, but don’t go backward. Forward is the way. LEO: Drama scares practical people. Practicality scares dramatic people. You’ll find the balance. VIRGO: You can’t help whom you are attracted to, but you don’t have to give your heart to that person, either. LIBRA: The very thought of a certain person will change your day. SCORPIO: Words cannot be retracted, and action is even more irreversible. SAGITTARIUS: Someone wants to hear what you think but isn’t quite sure how to start the conversation. CAPRICORN: The time you spend together doing very little is just plain wonderful. AQUARIUS: If being with a person requires you to do some pretending, you’d rather not. PISCES: Sometimes it feels like you’re a slave to the love you once mastered.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Capricorn and Libra both have high standards, and they will meet them for each other as the Capricorn moon reflects the sun’s glide through Libra. This is likely to be an expensive weekend for the couple. First of all, they have excellent ideas and taste. Secondly, these two are filled with the confidence that all they invest in will add beauty to their lives and excellent memories to their story.
