Two Moons of Attraction
The force of attraction rules and also ruins. Attraction can bring us together for creation, or it can spawn a greed that consumes everything in its path. Balancing our attractions with reason and being mindful of the others we share our planet with are constant challenges that the moon moving from Libra to Scorpio will highlight.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maintaining integrity equals keeping your agreements — not some of them, but all of them. Your heart and desire may be leading you in a different direction now. Think of this as a trial, a test of your true mettle.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to find an inspiring environment, and it’s not that hard now, either. All you have to do is heed that tiny voice beckoning you toward that thing you’ve never seen or done before.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Maybe you’re waiting for the moment when push comes to shove. But push doesn’t always come to shove. Sometimes push comes to “run away from the one pushing.” That’s more likely the scenario today.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll try a new role on for size today. Actors know that in order to make a role believable to others, it must first be believable to you. One way to make that happen is to live the role 24/7.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It may feel like you are under the gravitational pull of something that is not entirely good for you. As long as you are within reach of it, it will continue to tug at you. Stay far away, and you’ll be beyond its power.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like to be flexible and try new ideas on for size, but you don’t want to be forced to wear them all of the time, especially if they don’t fit well. Avoid overly pushy types.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are a smooth persuader. Your soft words will have heavy influence because your intention is so clear within you. You don’t have to spell things out. People sense what you want even though it’s all below the surface.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The key is not to lose your cool — not when the clock ticks past the time you’re supposed to arrive, and not when the competition shows up with twice the power. Maintain your composure, and you’ll win in the end.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may feel like teasing those you love and those you simply think deserve some teasing. Just be careful not to antagonize people who don’t share your sense of humor.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may feel like you still haven’t become the person you want to be, but you’re getting closer. You may have started out as a work of nature, but the efforts you make now are helping you become a work of art.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don’t side with the one who doubts everything and always takes the negative route. Neither should you side with the one who loves everything and always takes the positive route. Think for yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be working backward today. You have the solution, and now you just have to find the problem that fits it best. Using your resources well is the surest way to attract more of them.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 2). The odds are in your favor in the next six weeks, so take risks. You’ll enjoy a new playmate this month. December furthers your personal interests. Soon you’ll be able to make money by branching out in this direction. February is for sorting out the details of a familial situation. You’ll relish your leisure time in March. Cancer and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 33, 28, 14 and 17.
WHEN URANUS SQUARES PLUTO: Harry Potter wasn’t the first to own a weapon of invisibility. The Greek god Hades had a helmet that did about the same thing, and he lent it out generously to his friends — or maybe they stole it, or maybe it was stolen by nymphs and reassigned, depending on whose story you believe. Anyway, many will wish they had such a thing now, with Pluto and Uranus aligning to draw attention to things we don’t necessarily want to notice.
The movements of these distant planets are noted more for their global and generational influence than their personal implications. And yet, sooner or later what affects your world and your generation will affect you. Those with a stout sense of responsibility are the first to make a difference in the world precisely because they take things personally and are willing to be proactive.
This aspect of Uranus and Pluto poses the question: What is happening in your life and time that you sense is wrong but do anyway because everyone else is doing it? What goings-on in these times might future generations look back on with the same disgust that you feel toward practices like cannibalism or slavery?
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Like a typical Scorpio, “The View” co-host Jenny McCarthy has a way of polarizing people. This sign leans toward the incendiary and often without a thought (or care) as to how people are going to react. In keeping with her Mercury and Neptune in fiery, passionate Sagittarius, McCarthy isn’t shy about sharing beliefs that some consider dangerous.
