The Pisces moon on a Saturday night can be dicey. People will be strongly influenced by one another, so the company you keep will make all the difference in what happens. It’s an excellent time to be with those you admire and wouldn’t mind becoming more like. If you haven’t met them yet, go where you’re likely to run into the type.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Once you decide what you’re going to do, you snap to it. But the deciding takes much longer than usual due to the plethora of choices. Friends await your answer.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You rarely fall into a “blue funk,” because your mental habits don’t like to go there. With enough rest, good nutrition and a steady source of amusement, your mood will stay buoyant.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You ride the line between romantic and realistic. As much as you’d like to believe in a fairytale, there’s something inside you that won’t buy in all the way. Your feet are firmly planted in what’s real.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your mood is mighty fine, though it will take some work to keep yourself upbeat. Put some fun on the books. A scheduled event you can look forward to will keep your spirits lofty in the weeks to come.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Contrary to what Copernicus proposed in the 16th century, the planets do not orbit in perfect circles around the sun. Though imperfect, their journey is consistent and predictable, kind of like your orbit of a certain loved one.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may be put on the spot. It will feel like you’re doing an interview whether or not that is really the case. Answering questions that are out of the ordinary is made simple by your honest nature.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Getting where you want to go will not require that you be assertive. Luckily, you can accomplish this without being pushy. Your polite smile opens doors.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). . A loved one is bothered by something but isn’t ready to talk about it yet. Don’t push it. Remember that a sympathetic ear is also a patient ear — and is always ready to listen.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Simple gestures are the most effective, especially if the effect you are going for has to do with romance. You’ll be surprised at how much can be accomplished with intentional eye contact.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Uninterrupted, focused time has bearing on a relationship, but not as much as the intermittent in-between time does. It’s the way you are when your guard is down that will matter most.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Giving too much can be a problem. There’s a point at which it’s very uncool and counter-effective to do so. Read the situation at hand, and take your cues from those who are more involved in it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even though our solar system is composed of mostly empty space, today you may feel like you still don’t have enough of it. Your time alone is precious, and you’ll use it well, possibly doing nothing at all.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 4). This month brings funding for your fond wishes. You may be unaware of how inspiring you are, but someone is enraptured by you over the next six weeks. In September, you’ll pull together a group for a common purpose. In October, you’ll successfully tackle projects that require more than the usual amount of effort. Aquarius and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 4, 14, 39 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Am I crazy to want an old-fashioned romance in a contemporary, fast-paced world? I want kisses, not texts. I want dates, not hanging out. I want marriage proposals, not shacking up. Will this Libra succeed in finding someone as romantic as she is?”
Venus ruled, your attraction to fairytales and the fantasy side of love is sometimes stronger than your attraction to the reality of the actual person standing before you. This doesn’t have to be a negative, as life would get awfully dull without the infusion of glamour and excitement you bring. Do make an effort to bridge the gap between your fantasy and real life, though. Dreams don’t give you back rubs or bring soup when you’re under the weather.
Since you already know what you want and what you don’t want, committing your list to paper should be easy. From there, your quest for romance is pretty straightforward. 1. Be the kind of person who matches up with the kind of person on your list. 2. Go out and meet as many people as possible. 3. Have fun with the process.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to President Barack Obama, who was born when the sun, Mercury and Uranus were all in charismatic Leo. Public speaking is a forte for Mercury (communication) in Leo (spotlight) natives. His Venus in patriotic Cancer points to the desire to make domestic life comfortable and secure. The president’s Jupiter in philanthropic Aquarius takes the idea to a large scale.
