Full Aries Moon

The full Aries moon is a warrior intent on fighting passionately for a side. It’s a good time to reinforce in your own mind what you stand for and what you’re willing to defend or go on the offensive to achieve. The eclipse will be like a theatrical curtain closing briefly for a quick set change. Night brings a new and different environment.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be in a position to show what makes you different from the others. That’s why you’ll avoid the kind of environment that everyone else would choose. You’ll shine elsewhere and be memorable.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Social decisions will affect the outcome of your day. You prefer to be around mild-mannered types, though you can’t deny a strange fascination with people who walk the line of social acceptability.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you’re not careful, disorganized efforts will needlessly complicate your life. Take the time to figure out exactly what you’re going to do. It’s the work you do to prepare for an event that will make it a success.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A restriction will be lifted. This is what you’ve been waiting for: the green light telling you to turn your ideas into action. Your true friends want you to succeed, and they will cheer you on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). With all that’s going on in today’s swirl, simple communication is better. You’re drawn to those who can tell you what they are about in a sentence or two, and you’ll do the same.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You could still win, but you have to put on your game face and be strategic. Also, you don’t need to know everything. Just don’t let them know quite yet where the holes in your knowledge might be.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When your eloquent manner doesn’t quite get the point across, you may resort to being uncharacteristically bold or blunt. Whatever works. You’re more concerned with being effective than with being perfect.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your casual mindset doesn’t go with another person’s formal plans. Take the reins. Your suggestions will be better, and you’ll sell them by being modestly amenable to anything.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Today feels like a release from the intense energy that’s been building up over the course of the week. You’ll be in the mood to get a little wild, but not too crazy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A practical mood prevails. You’ll sort through a mishmash of options until you land on something useful. Avoid jumping to conclusions or accepting new ideas as true before they have been proved to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t realize just how mesmerizing your spontaneity is to people who are used to operating in a highly controlled environment. Hopefully you won’t mind if they try to make a study of you!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This day will refresh your sense of wonder. The last thing you think will happen is the first thing that does. This is just what you need to get your creative juices flowing again.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 18). There’s little you can do to dissuade good fortune from smiling on you in the next 10 weeks. Use your increased power and presence to forward an agenda that will benefit you and your family. You’ll sign a deal in November. December brings a natural close to old business and an opportunity for change. Leo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 44, 32, 19 and 50.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: What people say they want isn’t always what they really want. You aim to fulfill a person’s true and secret need. TAURUS: The way you change your body language when a certain someone is around is indicative of a crush. GEMINI: Invite someone to join in the fun you already had in motion. CANCER: Give to others first, and then stand back and expect results. Don’t forget that last part. LEO: You can’t change a person, but you can alter a person’s priorities by becoming one of them. VIRGO: The way to never come off as needy is to meet your own needs. LIBRA: You may wonder whether your attraction to someone is purely circumstantial. A change of circumstances brings the answer. SCORPIO: You’re inclined to hold out for the person who meets your high standards, even if it means you have to wait a while. SAGITTARIUS: Your curiosity will lead you to an interesting conundrum. There is no right answer, but some answers lead to more pleasurable arrangements than others. CAPRICORN: Your call, and your love, will be returned. AQUARIUS: Be careful not to rate yourself based on someone else’s sliding scale. Use your own. PISCES: You have that intangible, irresistible something that puts the power in your hands.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Aries and Libra have a different way of seeing the world. These zodiac opposites pull at each other from across the sky while the full moon reflects the glory of the Libran sun. To commit or not to commit is the question they face this weekend. Even though they won’t always agree, each is enriched by the other’s opinion as long as it is presented with warmth and humor.
