Full Moon After Party
In this split-screen society, people feel like they must always be doing something, if not 10 things. Only the bold and strong have what it takes to be idle. The wise know the benefits of doing nothing, even if it’s not something they can articulate. The power of nothing is beyond the scope of words. You’ll certainly feel it in the wake of the full moon.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is no absolute security in life. Chasing security will only exhaust you. Instead, you’ll accept your vulnerability and suddenly have the energy and vitality needed to enjoy the moment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re no bore, but thrill seekers should look elsewhere. You believe that life needn’t be a roller coaster ride. Someone with a “no drama” policy will be attracted to your stable, grounded nature.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re trying to strike a deal that works on all levels in a way that’s fair to both parties. Arrangements in your personal life take longer to sort out because the terms are not written in a contract.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Popularity is pretty simple these days. The person who is the most fun has the most friends. You like the challenge of finding new and interesting ways to stay lighthearted.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s a certain amount of domestic work that comes with the basics of modern life. Make sure it’s equally portioned among housemates. A situation in which one person is constantly cleaning up after the other will get old fast.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In these last few days of the solar return through your sign, you’ll be filled with joy. Let it overflow. You never know who is hurting and could be saved by your smile.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes you become so obsessed with the symbol you want that you forget to ask yourself why you want it. How do you expect to feel once you arrive? What else could you do to capture that feeling?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just because you give your love unconditionally doesn’t mean you’re fine with people disappointing you. Let your loved ones know what you expect.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No relationship is perfect, but you try to appreciate and play to each person’s particular strengths. Because of this, you wind up in a sweet arrangement tonight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s an all-or-nothing game today. Go for your first choice, and if you don’t get it, play a different game altogether. Don’t settle for your second choice — that will only set the stage for struggles ahead.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Focus on what needs to be accomplished for your personal fulfillment to the exclusion of all other riffraff. Comparisons or assertions about what others should do can only diminish you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Meeting up with others who share your unconventional interests will augment your fortunes in the weeks to come. If your tribe can’t assemble today, make plans to do so in the near future.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 20). If you have any vices, you won’t have time to tend to them this year because your goals keep you too busy. Domestic improvements include spending more time with people who brighten your environment. You’ll add a skill to your set and start making money with it in November. January highlights your new image. Cancer and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 3, 22, 9 and 17.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: If single, revel in your options. If paired up, celebrate the best aspects of that. Don’t pine for a different status. TAURUS: Those who feel powerless try to control others. Your hands-off approach is confident and appealing. GEMINI: Being close to someone you like will make the sweet things in life even sweeter. CANCER: The best connections happen when you’re only thinking of the present. LEO: As long as you are conscious, you’re in charge of taking care of yourself. Make it your No. 1 priority this weekend. VIRGO: You thrive with someone who shares your standards. The one who seems thrilled with a mediocre outcome isn’t for you. LIBRA: No, you’re not exaggerating — you can read a certain person’s mind. One look says it all. SCORPIO: Playfulness visits your love life, and a silly interaction will be memorable. SAGITTARIUS: Your needs may not be met at the moment, but the work you do will lay the groundwork for future satisfaction. CAPRICORN: Get out and mingle. You need to be around people, and not just one person in particular. AQUARIUS: You can’t go forward with all your heart if you’ve given it to someone else. PISCES: You’ll lay down new rules for your personal life.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Virgo and Taurus are earth signs who perfectly complement each other’s lifestyle. Both value the tangible evidence of love and are not given to mushy sentimentality or pledging their undying affection unless the relationship consistently meets certain reasonable criteria. In other words, no matter how hot the chemistry is, these practical signs have standards that coincide with relationship bliss.
