Theatrical Leo Moon

This popular night for Halloween parties is ruled by the theatrical Leo moon, promising more than one believable prank and chillingly real spook and perhaps an unexplained twist or two. Mercury retrograde isn’t the most auspicious party-throwing aspect, but even if things don’t go smoothly, they will be memorable and fun.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you put someone on a pedestal, they have to look down on you — that’s just the way it goes. So as much as you like a person, don’t elevate them to a status that makes communication awkward.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to put your best foot forward, but not if “forward” means walking off a cliff. That’s why you may choose to follow for a while. You’re wise to observe until you get the lay of the land.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Acceptance won’t give you power over a situation, but it’s the first step. Without acceptance, you’ll have zero control, because you can’t influence what you deny exists.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You need some afternoon solitude so you can handle something essential to a smooth living experience. Later tonight, what’s on the agenda will be better experienced with a friend.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be feeling “on,” and you’ll attract attention and elicit laughs when you want them. Just be sure to turn the energy around by listening to others and inviting them to step up to the fun.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be as effective as you are original. If a majority of the people don’t understand you, so be it. It’s better to be seen truly as yourself by one person than for a hundred people to see you pretending.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Comedy is stress relief. When you feel yourself tensing up, go for the “funny” wherever you can find it. You probably won’t have to look further than your own family.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It may be time to drop your resistance to another person’s authority and just let that person lead for a while. The power struggle is likely a huge waste of time. Meanwhile, there’s so much you could be learning.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Life is good because your favorite people also happen to favorite you. It helps that you are naturally drawn to the easy-going types who aren’t waiting for you to make a mistake or reveal a flaw.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Before you take a rule away, make sure you know the reason it was established in the first place. Something seemingly archaic could still have a solid application in these complex contemporary times.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The party needs you. You have a compelling energy, and you will engage people with your enthusiasm. Even if you only show up to a soiree for a half-hour, it will be better because you were a part of it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). One way to keep from getting overwhelmed is to try not to notice that so much needs to be done. Instead, focus small. What needs to be done in this one little corner? You can slowly expand from there.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 26). You are your own source of strength at the top of this new cycle, and it’s more than enough to get you to a cherished goal by February. In fact, learning to depend on yourself will ensure that when you assemble your team in March, it will be with people as worthy and able as you are. You’ll solve a puzzle in April. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 28, 13, 37 and 44.

COSMIC COSTUME IDEAS: ARIES: A character from an epic battle such as “Game of Thrones” will highlight your warrior spirit. TAURUS: Be it vixen or vampire, tap into Venus energy with a costume that highlights your attractive assets. GEMINI: While your guiding planet, Mercury, is retrograde, go for a costume that has a prank, twist or optical illusion involved. CANCER: Howl at the moon, your ruler, as a werewolf, dog or other canine. LEO: Be the superhero you are most like or the villain you are most unlike. VIRGO: Consider a gender-bending costume or someone from a different planet. LIBRA: Your natural artistry will shine as a pop star or famous actor. SCORPIO: You’ll be lucky as an animal with a shell, feathers or scales. SAGITTARIUS: Play with scale: Be a mouse or something big like the Statue of Liberty. CAPRICORN: You’ll rock a ghostly image that’s more eerie, or even beautiful, than scary. AQUARIUS: Return to what you wanted to be when you were a child. PISCES: Historical or retro costumes will suit you best, especially if you have a special affinity for the era you choose.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Scorpio is the ruler of that special kind of energy that makes women flock to stadiums and scream their hearts out to show enthusiasm for the entertainer who has captured their fondest daydreams. Case in point: Keith Urban, born when the sun, Mercury (communication) and Neptune (dreams) were all in Scorpio.
