Post Full-Moon Recovery
The day after the Aries full moon is a bit lethargic. There’s a recovery happening, as the warrior spirit that was let out yesterday now retreats to the safety of a home camp. The lunar influence moves to Taurus, where new appetites are created. There are ways to nourish your soul that you might not have thought of until now.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are times when you patently disagree with the role that life is trying to cast you in. These are moments of choice. You can always politely decline. And don’t worry — life will find someone else to cast in that role!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). For every sweet, there’s a sour to balance out the taste and keep everyone from going into sugar shock. That’s why you take a bit of negativity in stride. Being too good all of the time is boring!
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your energy level will be higher than usual, and you may find it difficult to control. If you find yourself feeling anxious with nothing to pin it on, consider taking it as a sign that you really need a break.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Deciding whom to befriend and/or love is one of the most impactful decisions you can make. Don’t go haphazardly into relationships. It’s best when your head and heart work in tandem.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A high profile comes with a high level of responsibility. Right now, it’s a burdensome reality. In the future, you may decide to slip under the radar so no one will bother you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to do work that contributes beauty to the world, but you also want to make money. The two desires may not seem to easily mesh, but work at it a bit longer. There is a way to fulfill both wants.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have a joyful spirit, and therefore the world seems more interesting to you. Whatever you focus on, you awaken the joyful soul resting inside of that person, place or thing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People say that time changes things. It seems to you that you’re the one changing things, and time is greedily taking all of the credit. That’s why you’re justified in pointing out exactly what you’ve done. Don’t forget to take a bow.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your instincts are good, so you need to trust them. Act when the impulse is fiery inside you — and don’t wait for it to cool, or your action may as well not have been executed at all.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). One does not have to be experienced to possess a radiant intelligence. Today’s wisdom comes from the mouths of babes. Of course, it’s your expert interpretation that makes it especially relevant.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When someone you don’t particularly respect becomes successful, it’s too easy to write it off as good luck. But look deeper into the methods and strategies, and you could become a serious competitor.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Knowing what you believe can be limiting. Besides, how can you know for sure until you’re tested? You may prefer to leave your mind open to the possibilities, if only because it’s easier given your current circumstance.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 19). You’ll take better care of yourself and others. You’ll build strong, fruitful relationships while establishing your own identity. November boosts your authority. In December, your plans will be disrupted by something happy, but still, it knocks you off course a bit. To get back on track you must be vigilant. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 34, 27, 19 and 50.
TURN THE DOWNSIDE OF YOUR SIGN INTO AN ASSET: Each sign has strengths and weaknesses, and often they are the very same quality. As the sign of the scales, valuing things and weighing them against one another is second nature to LIBRA, who has the distinction of being the only sign of the zodiac represented by an inanimate object. It follows that Libra can be indecisive. A more positive outcropping is that Libra is objective, and this is why Libran’s have better taste than most. Impartiality gives Libra a path to a refined aesthetic. What Libra needs to remember in order to make the most of this gift is that, in the end, a decision must be made. And ultimately, whichever way Libra goes, commitment is better than vacillation.
SCORPIO has to work a little harder to earn people’s trust because they often just don’t know what to make of this enigmatic sign. The upside is that the cloud of mystery that hovers around Scorpio is part of what makes this sign so magnetically attractive. It’s natural to make assumptions about people who are easy to figure out, but Scorpio interrupts that tendency and commands people to take a closer look without ever having to say a thing.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: “South Park” co-creator Trey Parker added a number of Tony Awards to his growing collection of industry treasures for the musical he co-wrote with Matt Stone, “The Book of Mormon.” This multitalented Libra (born under five artistic Libran luminaries) acted in and built sets for musical theater productions as a teen. His Mars in Capricorn is a powerful indicator of success in highly competitive fields.
