Moon Changes Suit

The moon in Aquarius is very much in harmony with the Libra sun until she changes suit this evening, slipping into the more emotional realm of Pisces. From here, the moon understands that the “it’s all good” attitude of the early day won’t quite fit because it’s not “all good,” not really. Admitting that is the first step to healing.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s the very difficult things that are the most rewarding. These things shouldn’t be attempted every single day. In between efforts, you need to give yourself time to recover, relax and heal.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Like a hot air balloon, you will be able to float to loftier altitudes once you release the sandbags of bitterness, resentment and guilt. Who do you need to forgive today?

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Center your energy so you won’t approach any problem from a place of scattered desperation. No good comes of grasping. Either hold tight or let go.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). In order to get anywhere at all, you’ll need the agreement of other people. The easiest way to get this agreement is to offer what you know they need and want: a bit of entertainment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re not in the mood to think deeply about anything, and your timing couldn’t be better, by the way! Skim the surface, and you’ll go fast and far. You’ll land in a beautiful place.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll gravitate toward soft dynamics, but the way you express yourself will still make a bold impression. People may even be a little afraid or intimidated by your quiet reserve.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Persistence is an important part of your success equation now. It’s so important, in fact, that any job that doesn’t require you to persist isn’t worth doing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The simplest acts of self-care will lift your mood. What is it you’ve been missing lately? What would be a treat to experience? What would you do if you had a little extra time to spend on yourself? Do it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Nothing would exist without the yellow radiance of sunshine. This applies to your relationships, too, which will thrive only when they get the warmth and energy they need.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though it does you no good to dwell on something negative, it also won’t do you any good to ignore it completely. Once you identify the thing that’s bothering you, you’ll immediately be lighter.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may struggle with what you believe is a self-discipline issue. In reality, what’s lacking is desire. You don’t want the outcome badly enough to do what it takes to achieve it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). How can you help another person get where they want to go? The one who comes up with the best answer to this question will win business and friendship too.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 14). You’ll open your heart and make friends from all over the world — you’re an ambassador for peace. The next three weeks increase the flow of love through your life. November features appreciation from strangers, new fans and applause. December brings unusual visitors. Things pick up financially in February. Leo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 3, 33, 28 and 1.

12 MAPS TO NOW: It’s not so detrimental to drift out of the moment from time to time. In fact, it can be a lot of fun, especially if your imagination creates a beautiful place for you to land. But for the most part, being connected to the moment is ultimately what connects us to other people and allows us to flow our love and attention to what’s going on in the present. How do you find your way back once you’ve drifted off?

MAP No. 12: Touch Five

Touch your thumb and index finger together and feel, really feel, the subtlety of that sensation. It may help you to repeat “tap-tap-tap” or to rub your digits together in a tiny circular motion. Next, touch your middle finger to your thumb. Is that the same feeling, or is it different? Then try the fourth finger and your pinky. Being able to touch these fingers to your thumb is what sets humans apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. The fingers are some of the densest areas for nerve endings in the body. As you experience the five-finger touch, you will train your brain to quite literally feel out what is happening in the present moment.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Mia Wasikowska is becoming somewhat of an expert in portraying much-loved literary characters: Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre and now Madame Bovary. This classically beautiful Libra was born when the sun, Mercury and Mars were all in Libra, the sign of art, grace and harmony. Her Saturn, Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn suggests a very lengthy and lucrative career path.
