New Moon of Beauty

It’s been estimated that watching television commercials can triple a person’s desire for more possessions. As the moon disappears and renews itself in the highly aesthetic sign of Libra, many will have the opposite desire: to start new in creating a beautiful environment by getting rid of unnecessary things that clutter it up.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Out with the old, and plant a few seeds for the new. If you can’t manage to get rid of all the old, don’t worry. As it is in most kinds of planting, the rotten past provides nutrient-rich soil.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re coming into your own at work. The results you’re getting will turn a few heads and net you more eyeball time than some of your peers. Take it in stride so as not to arouse jealousies.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It seems that some around you are dancing on the fine line between diplomacy and lying. Your social acuity allows you to know the difference. As for yourself, you’d rather just tell the truth.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will avoid trouble by correctly judging a person’s nature. The honest have innocent eyes. The guilty seem to be repenting for sins that haven’t been committed yet.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Social opinion matters to you, but your purpose goes way beyond dressing well and looking good. As you pursue what really matters, appearances begin to mean less to you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are times when it’s better to accomplish something without worrying about who gets the credit, but this is not one of them. It’s essential to your future that you publicly own what you do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are unusually powerful today. Not only can you visualize what needs to be done, but you also can see how to do it. Write your plans down, as they will come in a rush of divine inspiration that may be hard to recapture later.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Approval-seeking is the death of charisma. Figure out what you want out of a situation other than the acceptance of others, and focus there. That’s the only way to win it now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A relationship will improve through communication that connects you. But if you don’t know what to say, trust that you can communicate just by being together. Words come and go. Silence is eternal.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ve shielded your mind from certain information, appropriately so. But now you want to see things as they really are. You’ll take the blinders off and accept this as your new starting place.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one is looking, and yet you’ll still do what’s right. You believe in karma, and you also believe as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus stated, that a man’s character is his fate.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Is it nobler to get things done or leave things undone? That is the philosophical question of the day. When answered correctly, life suddenly becomes much easier.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 4). Your needs are many, and you don’t expect one person to fulfill all of them. That’s why the broadening of your social, professional and spiritual life that happens between now and the end of the year will serve you well. January shows you helping a friend. February brings an improved domestic environment.  Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 2, 22, 24 and 12.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Prioritizing style over substance is never a good idea, but in love it’s the precursor to calamity. TAURUS: Relationships will morph. You still will love each other, but the love changes as life does. GEMINI: If you want a relationship to move beyond the friend zone, this is the weekend to take a chance. CANCER: Obligation is not attraction, but those who do not fulfill relationship obligations are not attractive, either. LEO: Rapport builds with agreement, but also with a certain degree of disagreement. Who would want to date their own clone? VIRGO: A bit of silliness takes a flirtation to the next level. LIBRA: Some people make themselves too available to you. You would miss them if they would only go away. SCORPIO: In order to advance your purpose, you may have to concede someone else’s. SAGITTARIUS: You can practically read the other person’s mind (which isn’t always a good thing). CAPRICORN: Beware of the potential mate who is looking for a parent figure and not an equal partner. AQUARIUS: Don’t tune in to the needs of another until after you’ve figured out your own. PISCES: Desperation sounds good in love songs, but it stinks in real relationships. You choose confidence.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Libra rules the sky now, and many will be attracted to this beautiful, charming sign. Scorpio may seem like the most worthy contender, with three luminaries lending power to this already seductive sign. These zodiac neighbors are instantly compatible. Libra’s gentle ways gloss over Scorpio’s more direct style of communication. Libra brings the flirtatious banter, and Scorpio pulls things deeper.
