Aries Moon Says Avoid the Wait
The void-of-course Aries moon in tandem with Mercury retrograde in Scorpio produces a low-grade frustration for those who are waiting for something to happen. The remedy is not to wait. Go about your business as though you were not dependent on anyone or anything else. Excellent organization skills will help you maximize downtime.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s a bonus if someone can make you smile and laugh, but as a rule, you are self-entertaining. This independent quality will come in handy during the early evening lull.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You expect yourself to be able to do certain things, and yet your talents are anything but commonplace. Others will delight in your ability to apply one skill in many ways.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some never learned the social filters that most people employ in polite society. Others seem incapable of learning these boundaries no matter how you try to teach them. Tolerance is a virtue.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Objectivity is difficult to attain in a mirror. When you look at yourself, you see the flaws. Then you examine others, and you notice the positives. Just know that other people are experiencing your beauty even when you’re not.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You go about your business in a pragmatic way, and yet it takes very little to distract you. Creativity requires that you be open to caprice, and one of your whims will lead to a jackpot.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You naturally gravitate to what makes you feel more alive. This seems like a no-brainer now, but there have been times when you simply weren’t as in touch with what you needed, so your awareness is something to celebrate.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Many want to pin you down, but it’s hard to tell what you’ll be doing two weeks from now, so avoid making definite plans. Leave room for ambiguity, improvisation and magical happenstance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Loved ones come to you first with both good news and bad. It’s because you give what’s needed: a truthful reply, supportive words, advice that’s immediately actionable. Someone provides the same for you today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s a bit of feistiness in your delivery, but that’s only because you sense that it’s necessary. Others won’t readily give what they should unless you demand respect and show that you’re willing to fight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Continue to act on your outlandish ideas. You’re on to something. Tonight: Notice the one who is smiling but hurting. If anyone can reach out with just the right words, it’s you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you touch turns to money this afternoon. Because you will find it difficult to be temperate with your energy, concentrate on the endeavors that really matter to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Friends are not whimsically brought together, though that’s the way it might seem. You and yours are making choices based on similar inner drives. You have much in common and will be excellent support for one another.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 24). You’ll receive more than you give in the next six weeks; it’s simply your turn. You’ll change behaviors and habits in December. The humungous effort you put into a January project won’t feel like work. That’s how you know it’s love. March sends you to unfamiliar places. Save the extra money you get in June. Gemini and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 3, 34, 39 and 1.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My Leo girlfriend wants to move in with me, and I’m psyched to move the relationship forward. One hitch: She doesn’t like my dog (or any dog) and wants me to find him another home. How can I change her mind?”
Leos are cats. Not all cats dislike dogs, but generally speaking, cats and dogs are so different in nature that it’s hard for them to feel completely comfortable around each other.
Your best bet is to embrace your Leo love for all she has to offer without expecting her to change. She won’t. And maybe that’s why you like her. You’ll never be bored, because she’ll never let you know all of her. Just as soon as you think you can predict her next move, she’ll prove inconsistent. There’s always a mystery behind her eyes, a secret part she won’t give up, and maybe even a hidden agenda. She’s more fun than she is nice, more entertaining than she is appropriate, more truthful than she is supportive. And even the sweetest kitten in the world has a ferocious instinct. So, as much as I would love to tell you there’s a compromise to be struck, it’s really not true. Cat or dog, you’ll just have to choose.
