Enthusiasm has been called the nectar of the gods. Those who recognize it as an element of the sweet life will make a point of embracing enthusiasm wherever it occurs on this full moon eve. Get out, and you’re likely to see it occur quite often. When the moon is in Pisces, as it is now, moods are contagious.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). This eve of the full moon in your sign comes with an irrepressible feeling. Seeing other people achieving their dreams gives you permission to dream, too — if you didn’t feel you had it already.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Fate is capricious. What occurs may not be congruent with your sense of justice. Then again, maybe you don’t understand the variables. You’re willing to hear new sides of the story.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re not one to be distracted by every shiny object hung in your path. Yet, you’re looking for adventure today. You want to be enticed by the enticement that is worthy of your attention.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The way you meet a person will set the course for your entire relationship, however long-lived or short-lived that may be. Follow the inclination to project a sparkling personality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Changing your romantic future is easy. Do something different. One different thing is all it takes to alter the course. Venus in your sign keeps reminding you that you have the power.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just as parental supervision is a primary factor in preventing juvenile delinquency, so is you-on-you supervision in preventing a fall from intention. Check in with yourself. How are you doing with your goals?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have a different perspective on life than you did when you were little, but you still remember your naive emotional associations. A morning interaction will illustrate the point.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For you, optimism is easy, considering the alternative. You can think the best and free up your energy, or you can worry about the worst and be tethered to those fears.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Can a relationship be remade by remembering things differently? It’s not difficult for you to imagine your interactions from other perspectives, and now you’ll feel willing to try.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll catch wind of an interesting prospect now. It’s not too late to make one of your childhood dreams come true in some quirky way. Look sideways at the scene, and ask lots of questions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you bring something to the table, you’ll be more readily accepted at the dinner. Also, you’ll feel better about all you eat knowing you contributed in a way you can be proud of.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can’t change the cards you are dealt, but the way you play today’s hand will be nothing short of brilliant. You’ll bluff when you think you can get away with it, and that’s the fun part.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 28). You’ll take initiative, refusing to settle for less than you deserve — and your estimation of what’s deserved is right on, as well. First, you show that you’re willing to work hard. Then friends and family gather in support of your quest. Mental clarity helps you choose new goals in December. Investments pay in May. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 5, 25, 49 and 11.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: With the full moon in your sign, you’ll be both unstoppable and irresistible. TAURUS: You will be surprised at who seeks your approval this weekend. GEMINI: You are present and attentive to a loved one’s needs without trying to prevent the other person from having an experience. CANCER: You value what you bring to a relationship, and the other person learns to appreciate it, too, by following your cues. LEO: You make people feel safe, and so they open up around you. VIRGO: When one avenue closes, it’s a blessing. It’s a joy to be with the one who can reciprocate your feelings. LIBRA: Your wants and needs are a bit complicated, and you’ll make a fascinating discovery as you sort them out. SCORPIO: You have goals. This is part of what makes you so attractive to others. SAGITTARIUS: You bring excitement to a circle that sorely needs this. CAPRICORN: You’ll make a few fun changes in order to project a stronger image. AQUARIUS: You’ll be the wildcard of the party. PISCES: In some small but profound way, you will shake free from the chains of your old relationship and reform it.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the full moon in Aries calls from across the sky to the sun in Libra, a bond is formed between these opposites. The dance between them embodies the dramatic passion of a ballroom tango. Aries makes a bold move forward; Libra sways gingerly backward. Aries postures with strength; Libra responds with a graceful, mannerly embellishment. The footwork is as intricate as it is delicate.
