The Sagittarius moon reminds us that we are all travelers in some way. This is true even if we’ve never left our country or home state; journeys don’t have to take place in physical space. Sometimes a great distance is traveled in emotional depth, spiritual understanding or capacity to love. And with the right intention, anything can be a journey.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may find yourself in a constant state of management, with an endless to-do list that absorbs your time. Could you reassign some of your tasks to someone else? Delegation equals freedom.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Cool down and relax. There is nothing to be gained from rushing around. Besides, you look more confident and in control when you move slowly. The world will wait for you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be inexplicably drawn to an odd adventure. This road may seem potentially unpleasant and downright difficult, but no matter. It’s the kind of thing you do just so you never have to do it again.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re an excellent driver, so try to steer the action where you want it to go. The same goes for conversation. Otherwise, you’ll tune out and get lost in your own thoughts, alienating the speaker.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Status matters. The perceived authority of the people involved in a deal will affect how it goes down today. Whether in business or your personal life, do all you can to build your good name.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Trying to do a task perfectly robs you of the wonderful floating feeling of engagement in the same way that watching the clock prevents you from enjoying the moments.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re an expert politician, partly because you realize that politics doesn’t only pertain to large organizations. Politics is alive in every transaction between human beings. You’ll play the game well today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It takes maturity to understand that much that happens in a day depends on what a person did the night before. Every action sets up the next action. Tonight’s agenda changes as you use this principle as your guide.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s much to be gained in the process of leaving. When you say goodbye to a situation, you are also saying goodbye to the person you were inside that situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll have an opportunity to publicize your cause, make your request widely known or send a message to more people than you’ve ever been able to reach before.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sometimes all it takes is a little push to send you flying. This is usually true when you’ve already tested your wings and have them fully extended, just waiting for someone to dare you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are not a contrarian. For you to play devil’s advocate, or to adopt any conflicting point of view, you have to have an excellent reason — for instance, it’s really what you believe.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 19). The year brings a rebirth of your intellectual life, and you’ll be drawn to new interests, teachers and art forms. You’ll reap personal benefits from institutions and political and economic trends. A controlling force of the past will be eliminated in December. Loved ones celebrate a May accomplishment. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 43, 1, 23 and 15.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll reach out, and someone will take hold of your hand. TAURUS: You have to know what good chemistry is to recognize when it is or isn’t taking place. GEMINI: Do not let preconceptions color the way you respond to what happens in your personal life. CANCER: You’ll expertly factor in the feelings behind every exchange between you and your love and get to the heart of the matter. LEO: Save the serious moods for another time. All you want now is to be a fabulous friend and attract the same. VIRGO: You accept your love, not because he or she always acts acceptably, but because of the simple fact that he or she is a human being who has the right to self-expression. LIBRA: You prefer to deal in details rather than generalities, so you’ll tell your love exactly what you want. SCORPIO: Amateur psychologists are a dime a dozen. Don’t try to fix your love or offer unsolicited advice. SAGITTARIUS: Your relationships will benefit from clear and honest feedback. CAPRICORN: Beware of a meddling female. Guard your privacy. AQUARIUS: Someone allowing you to speak in their presence is not the same as listening. PISCES: You capture someone’s attention with your flirty, glamorous discussion.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: This evening, the moon drifts into Capricorn where she can be a stickler for following the rules. The Capricorn moon is also hyperaware of the power in relationships and who has more of it. No one can balance harsh realities better than the Libra sun. This dynamic will be reflected in Capricorn/Libra partnerships now. Libra brings levity, and Capricorn respects Libra’s right to be frivolous and fanciful.
