Messy Monday Moon

Often you can eliminate mental clutter by physically cleaning up your living and working spaces. But today the mess is more involved. It’s better to escape it for a while than to waste time slogging it out in a frustrated state of mind. The Virgo moon will be in full swing tomorrow to help you make fast work of whatever you can’t get to today.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The theme is: public vs. private. You wouldn’t want to expose anyone who doesn’t want the publicity, but it’s also hard to keep quiet about the things you’re enthusiastic about or care a great deal about.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Blessings multiplied can cease to become blessings. You appreciate what is small, intimate and manageable, realizing that more of it may not be such a great thing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Many battles aren’t worth fighting. You don’t have to come to an agreement to get along. Sometimes when you acknowledge the other side’s position, it softens in your favor.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Like children, we sometimes forget that everyone in the world isn’t doing, or can’t do, what we’re doing. That’s why the events that burst our existential bubbles and open a broader view are lucky — uncomfortable, but lucky.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Those who approach business from a user perspective will see far better results than those who step into a scene with the primary concern of what they will get out of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your energy is strong, and people notice how you are directing it, especially as you move into the evening hours. To bring out the best in people, all you have to do is see it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Society may reject new ideas out of a sense of fear and misunderstanding, but you’ll do your part to stay open. Your experimental mindset will have you considering possibilities that ultimately will lead to improvement for all.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your energy is strong these days, and so is your intuition. This is no time for treading water. Push forward by being proactive. Think a few steps ahead of what others are thinking.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are sensitive to others today, and so you are vulnerable to exploitation. That’s why it’s important to have a strong sense of internal structure. Know your own rules and live by them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Part of doing a job well is not doing anything else that will take your attention too far away from it. Put up barriers that will make it harder for the world to distract you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Stay away from sad, complaining people. They may seem to need your sympathy, but they are actually dangerously contagious. You’ll help them more by not being around to indulge their weakness.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If a stranger talked to you the way you talk to yourself inside your own head, would you befriend that person or call the police? There will be tangible rewards for monitoring and managing your thoughts.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 28). You’ll give in to luxurious desires and pursue an end-of-the-year adventure. Good times and good business are intertwined in January. High physical energy is featured in February, and you could get super-fit or successfully turn around a longstanding ailment. May brings a windfall for past works. Aries and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 22, 14, 17 and 27.

MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT NO. 1: Don’t you love trying to drive in traffic when every driver around you has a cellphone to the ear or, worse, is finger pecking out a text? We all know that the driver-device combo can be deadly, and yet from the looks of things, most people think they are the ones who will be immune to statistical tragedy. Considering the current retrograde status of Mercury, ruler of both communication and short journeys, in the sign of life and, well, death, if you only heed one astrological omen this year, let it be this one: Don’t risk murdering people with your car. The right time to use your phone while driving is never.

MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT NO. 2: Couples in a tight relationship tend toward a kind of communication shorthand. Having intimate knowledge of the wishes, habits and back-story of another person allows for a level of communication that is both comfortable and deep. However, during this Mercury retrograde, it’s important to remember not to go so far with the familiarity that you forget good manners. Yelling at your partner from another room, for instance, is saying that you expect the other person to drop everything, walk to you and tend to your needs. It’s just rude!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Superstar Scorpio Julia Roberts brings her megawatt smile to the latest John Wells project alongside fellow A-listers Meryl Streep and Ewan McGregor in the dramedy “August: Osage County.” Roberts has her sun, Mercury and Neptune all in the fascinating, magnetic realm of Scorpio. Also prominent in her natal chart is the hardworking and healthful energy of Virgo.
