Complicated New Moon Eve
On the eve of a rather complicated Virgo new moon, the lunar influence, still in Leo, is looking forward and making light of the matter. This playful cosmic influence suggests that we try to shake off the critical inner voices. That’s so much easier said than done. Exercise will help. So will adequate rest and nutrition. The basics are what matter.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not feel like you’re naturally fitting into a social situation, but you’re probably doing better than you think. Relax and stick close to that gregarious person who’s more at ease in this scene.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Some people prefer praise in public, and others detest it. You’ll be excellent at detecting which kind of person you’re dealing with, and you’ll deliver just the message to make everyone feel comfortable.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may lay out rules for someone to follow while secretly encouraging that person to break them. Why? It’s that complicated human dynamic called a “dare.”
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Carl Jung wrote, “The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” You’re not so sure this is true. You can tell how happy you are, and you won’t need the contrast to prove it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll crave a sensory experience. It’s as though your senses have been deprived, and you’re now ready to make up for lost time. Try to pace yourself, because you’ll regret over-indulgence.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some of the day will be spent reacting to imperfect moments. The particular reactions you choose will show the more refined parts of your character and also the bits of you that need a little more work.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What you get done today will give you a glimpse of the future. You’ll like what you see and become even more productive. Keep it up, and you’ll soon create a whole new life for yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes it’s like time is whizzing by your head, but not today. You’ll take control of the hours and use them how you wish. Let no one commandeer your moments, especially through unproductive talk.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You appreciate a pretty face and eye-catching style as much as the next person, though you’ll be most attracted to the one who stands out as being smart, thoughtful and generous.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Before you go off buying tickets to a theme park or zip line, consider very carefully your intended company for the event. The one who can’t find joy in the ordinary probably won’t find it in the extraordinary, either.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will risk being seen as foolish, and therefore you will be seen as powerful. Only the truly powerful are brave enough to throw social consequences to the wind.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re not the one being tempted; you’re the one providing the temptation. You don’t want to lure the others into sin exactly; you just want to lure them away from their usual choices.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 24). It’s your year of confidence. This leads to remarkable achievement, the most profound being that you accept your own accomplishments as being “A-OK” or, in other words, “enough.” Better yet, you will accept yourself as “enough” without the accomplishments. Friends, new and old, will surround you. Scorpio and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 1, 44 and 37.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: It’s not a week of big change; rather, it’s a week of small adjustments. Here’s something to think about along the way: The social order is a delicate and complicated matter. Tension between the sun and Neptune followed by angst between Venus and Mars suggests that these are times to tread lightly and ask for guidance from the highest and wisest sources.
TIPS FOR COSMICALLY COMPLICATED TIMES:
1. Everyone wants to be right, and probably no one is.
2. You’ll never regret being patient and/or kind.
3. Here’s a really bad idea: Get in your car, get on your cell, and back out of a parking lot.
4. Here’s a really good idea: Smile at the passersby. Why not? You could just make someone’s day.
5. Forgive. Forgive again. Forgive again and again and again. That might be the only way we get through this.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Best known for his role as Ron Weasley of the Harry Potter franchise, Rupert Grint is busy with the upcoming film “Moonwalkers” with Ron Perlman. Grint was born when the sun and Mercury were in Virgo, suggesting a stellar work ethic and a winning attitude toward life. These Virgo placements bode well for child stars, immunizing them against the slings and arrows of celebrity adulthood.
