Sun and Moon Disagree

With the time of Cancer in full swing, and with Mercury and Venus offering all kinds of neighborly support, home keeps calling us back — if we ever were able to leave it in the first place. On the eve of the full moon, the Sagittarian lunar agenda has other plans. So expect some indecision along the lines of: Should I stay, or should I go?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are laying the groundwork for an important move. Try not to tip your hand prematurely, or this won’t go nearly the way you want it to. Protect your own intellectual property by playing things close to the vest.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The logger chopping down a tree does not fret over where the woodchips land, because he is focused on the bigger issue of the trunk. Thus, the idiom “let the chips fall where they may,” which pretty much sums up your attitude.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You cannot count on popular support for your creativity now, but if you love what you’re doing, that shouldn’t matter much. Fly on, and let the rest of the world catch up later.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The immediate concerns that demand your attention will not go away until you address them. Rise above the situation. Run to the sanctuary of higher ground like a person fleeing a rising flood.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Are you trying to resist natural attraction even though this is futile? You can’t help what you like, but of course, you don’t have to act on everything that draws your attention, either. You’ll gracefully walk that line.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s not happening fast enough for you right now. How frustrating it can be when the world doesn’t seem to want to sync up with your timing. Or maybe this is just the excuse you needed to take a break!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Can you help yourself? To find out, go ahead and help yourself to whatever extent you are able. You’ll find that you can do more than you think, and that small actions go a long way toward a successful outcome today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You like to switch things up for the excitement that brings, but it’s not always wise to do so. Carry through on what you already promised, and all will be well.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People test each other by constructing roadblocks. Don’t back down so easily. Be the strong and curious person who pokes to find out whether the boulders are really rocks or just Styrofoam props.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be no negotiating with the established order. If you want a change, you’re just going to have to do it your way and deal with the consequences. The other option is to accept how things are and be happy about it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Gentle persuasion is favored over forceful methods. The thing you want is like a small animal, easily scared off if you move quickly toward it. Better yet, set out a bowl of food.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re just not in the mood to divulge your story to everyone who wants to know, but you will get something valuable out of exploring it for yourself. There are benefits to thinking about your earlier incarnations.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 22). You’ll be inspired to make fresh choices. You wouldn’t normally dedicate yourself to the pursuit of pleasure, and the novelty of this is what makes July so much fun. You’ll react quickly to September news and land in a truly privileged position by the month’s end. Romantic vows are spoken in December. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 11, 39, 28 and 3.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: WHAT’S YOUR SUMMER THEME? What happens post-solstice will get to the heart of what this summer is about for you. SAGITTARIUS has a talent for getting from place to place with great ease, and it will come in handy in this shuffle of a summer. The scenery changes, and a wide variety of characters who mingle in your personal landscape will invigorate the Sagittarian spirit. CAPRICORN will be working even when he or she has no idea that work is happening, because the casual relationships of leisure-time activities will build bonds of trust. Deals will close later based on the fun of these long summer days. AQUARIUS has a strong appetite for entertainment this summer, and blockbusters will not be enough to sate it. Aquarius wants love, passion, thrilling twists, starry nights and drama. A relationship with a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) will help in this regard. PISCES will know longing this summer, as the fish holds out for a person or circumstance just out of reach. The wonderful, terrible tension teeters between being gloriously romantic and too frustrating to bother with. Brilliant creativity will come out of this intensity of emotion.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Who will play the witch in the film version of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods”? Perhaps Meryl Streep will be cast as the singing sorceress. Widely considered to be the greatest living film actress, Streep is a soulful Cancer born under a Taurus moon (which rules unique and strong voices), and her natal Mercury and Mars are in versatile Gemini.
