Sun/Moon Mind Meld
The Cancer sun and Pisces moon promote unspoken understanding. What can you say without words or do without movement? If you believe we are connected heart-and-soul through a mysterious interdimensional energy grid, then possibly you can alter providence with your powerfully silent intention.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It doesn’t matter how long you’ll be in your current situation; do something with your time now. Whether you’ll stay a day, a year or a decade is irrelevant to the difference you’ll make today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You always have a choice about how to respond. Will your dominant tone be pleasant or smart, interested or aloof? Your response reveals where you’re at in your life, mood and spirit. Your opportunities will depend on it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Lucky things are born in the spirit of play. What starts out as a toy or game will develop quickly into something with a more substantial effect — perhaps a business or a lifestyle.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your morality is not the same as another person’s. You’re willing to entertain his or her point of view as it applies to him or her while quietly maintaining your own belief system. “To each his own” is the way of graciousness.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Have you ever remembered what never happened to you? Many have — and in precise detail at that. To ward against false memories, solidify the ones you know are true.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Faith and power are linked. By believing in something absolutely, you are giving it absolute power. The events of the day will introduce doubt and objectivity, which may feel like a challenge but may really be a blessing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll fall captive to the charms of an audacious liar. As long as you don’t believe this person, you’ll have the best of both worlds — a show without the cost of admission.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While settling into who you are, you may realize that this is as difficult as settling into the motion of a galloping horse; it’s not impossible, but it takes skill and practice to learn the rhythms.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Avoid talking about what you do. You’re likely to paint the wrong picture, either by devaluing your talents or by giving them the wrong emphasis. Let your admirers talk you up instead. You have many.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Hard work doesn’t tire you out today. Rather, it makes you feel even stronger. That’s because you can be proud of the work you’ve done. It’s the work you’ve not done that makes you weary.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Daily habits have been adding up to results of consequence. You’ve a deal with destiny — an arrangement you made about a year ago — and you’re about to cash in on it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Wanting something very badly does not automatically give you a talent for it, but it will be the case today that the desire is the talent that makes new things possible.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 29). This year is marked by an overriding theme of playfulness. You’re at your creative best while doing the childish thing you want to do instead of what you have to do. July brings a favorable end to a long trial. August frees up money or brings a new source of income. A partner will help you strategize business in September. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 2, 28, 1 and 18.
MERCURY RETROGRADE IN CANCER: What does it mean for you? SAGITTARIUS is the great expansion artist of the zodiac. Mercury slows down the rate of expansion by introducing doubt, inspiring review and suggesting a system of double and triple checks. This is extremely positive, healthful and helpful to growth, even though Sagittarius may become frustrated by the slower pacing of things. CAPRICORN will be learning the benefits of silence and of speaking up. It’s not always clear which is better. Just keep in mind that admitting “I don’t know” will usually result in more learning, whereas silence can sometimes drive a misunderstanding even deeper. AQUARIUS has nothing against being clueless and outside the main action. That can be a coveted position — a peaceful refuge for this highly intelligent and creative sign. During this retrograde, Aquarius will want to choose this position, though, instead of being relegated to it. PISCES is busy mastering the art of reading body language, especially the visual cues being thrown at Pisces by his or her nearest and dearest. The people closest to us can be surprisingly hard to read during this Mercury retrograde!
