The moon in Pisces urges you to use your intuition and act on your feelings. When you operate strictly from your feelings, you’re likely to turn down great sounding offers and/or take seemingly silly offers for no apparent reason. But you can be sure that goodness and reward come from this very personal method of dealing in the world.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). A wise man once said, “Nine times out of 10, it’s not personal.” Even though you may feel slighted, remember to give others the benefit of the doubt before you take offense.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s not that you don’t like to be around people; it’s just that you honestly don’t need anyone now. You feel deliriously satisfied in solitude, able to amuse yourself with very little.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your belief is the magic ingredient that makes things happen. The outcome you desire can only occur if you also have a great deal of faith that it will occur or that it is at least highly likely to occur.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Indulge yourself; you’ve earned it. Ironically, someone will take notice of the diligence and drive that shine through your work while you’re off having fun.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Not knowing the answer makes people uncomfortable, but it’s better than living with the wrong answer and assuming it’s the only way. Most of humanity does the latter. You’ll brave discomfort and stay open-minded.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People change because they like themselves, not because they don’t. You use this principle to be who you want to be. Kindness toward yourself and others will be the foundation for growth.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Getting dressed in the morning is like preparing for a role in a play. You assemble the character you’ll play with each item of clothing, all the while realizing that the one animating this guise is the real you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When a person makes a minor mistake, you are usually the first to diffuse the attention and minimize the damage. Making it easy for people to forgive themselves is one of your many talents.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Let someone invest time, energy and attention in you even if you don’t need all of the fuss. This person will feel more attached to you because of the investment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your need for personal growth can be met, but there’s something standing in the way right now. A clearing must occur in order for you to move forward.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one likes complainers, but there is no reason you should back down from airing a legitimate grievance. Standing up not just for yourself but also for others will bring rewards.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People don’t always do what makes sense. That’s human nature. You will merrily stroll down the sensible path as long as you see yourself as the kind of person who should receive the reward at the end of that path.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 7). You are spiritually liberated and personally committed to making the world a better place. You’ll meet special friends this month. In August, you won’t travel far, but you’ll travel deep. October is your chance to connect with people you admire and work toward a mutual benefit. November brings financial luck. Aquarius and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 40, 39, 20 and 17.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a 20-year-old Capricorn and utterly lost when it comes to my career. I don’t even know where to start because I see a problem with every job that comes to mind. I live with my mom now, and though I really want to move out, it’s going to be impossible unless I figure out what I want to do with my life. You say that Capricorns are goal-oriented and ambitious. How can I possibly be those things when I have no idea what I want to do?”
Capricorn energy can be intense. You want to be the best and have the best or nothing at all. Lose that pride for now because you have to get in motion to find your ambition. You’re thinking too much and getting frozen by the excessive speculation. You won’t get found by standing on a desolate path and saying, “I’m lost.” Go where the people are and make yourself useful. Everything comes from the basic desire to contribute: to help people solve their problems. Also, with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in intellectual air signs, there’s much to be learned (and nothing to lose) by completing basic education courses in college.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Fashion mogul Pierre Cardin introduced the bubble dress to the world in the 1950s, and his cutting-edge fashions have helped to define the global style ever since. With his natal moon and Mars in otherworldly Sagittarius, Cardin’s space-age shapes and unisex designs reflect his embrace of the unusual. His Venus and Neptune in Leo brings the drama necessary to make an impression in the highly competitive world of design.
