Libra Lunar Shift

The early day will be about handling the practical matters and details that will make life run more smoothly later in the week. What quickly becomes apparent as the moon shifts from Virgo to Libra is that our ease of life is largely determined by how well we are getting along with our nearest and dearest. Tend to relationships tonight.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Nothing is all good or all evil. Avoid people who talk in extremes or try to sway you far to one side — they will make life too complicated. Stick with the mild, reasonable types now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If time is on your side, consider yourself lucky. It’s one of the better forces to have working for you. This evening, you’ll be made aware of how rapidly life is changing for someone you know.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stick up for your friends, especially when their nearest and dearest share less than complimentary information. Familial love can be complicated. Take everyone’s opinion with a grain of salt, even your own.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The problem you deal with day in and day out is not only your problem; it’s shared by thousands of others. All you have to do is reach out a bit, and you’ll find the support you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re all for letting people get to know the real you, as long as the real you is more or less appropriate for the situation. Today’s success rides on your ability to choose the most effective version of who you really are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may not be a daredevil exactly, but you’re a chance taker in areas of life that do not involve the possibility of bodily harm. You’ll astound with the impulsive and bold move you make today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are like Hercules battling the lion today. It seems like an unfair match, but you’ll dominate and win in the end. If your victory doesn’t happen quickly, take heart: It took Hercules 30 days.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When chasing old dreams feels tired (if not, heaven forfend, desperate), it’s time to invigorate your daily life by dreaming anew. If you’re going to chase something, make sure it’s fresh excitement.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). “What could possibly go wrong?” is a dangerous question. The answers that spring to mind probably won’t occur. The answers that don’t spring to mind will show up in real time to keep things interesting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Amazing things are accomplished in the name of fun and games. If you’re not having fun, you’ll accomplish approximately half as much. A change of schedule will bring a change of heart.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The same people who are extremely shy are usually highly sensitive and thoughtful — and worth taking the time to get to know. Break the ice with that person who can’t break it alone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don’t be afraid to leverage your relationships. You took the time to build them, so why not utilize them? Your friends would love to help you, especially if it’s something fairly easy for them to do.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 14). A cosmic boost to your confidence has you sailing into this new era with a posse of new friends. August hands you a career choice. The end of August brings a lifestyle improvement. Your loyalty will be tested in September. You’ll make an auspicious trade. November launches an ambitious quest. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 1, 24, 38 and 14.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The planetary tides shift. Uranus goes retrograde, and later, Mercury counters by going direct. When Uranus goes retrograde, fewer surprises and fast changes are forecasted (quite different from what is expected when Mercury goes retrograde). When Mercury goes direct on Saturday, followed by a grand trine of Mars, Saturn and Neptune, it’s like a fivefold whammy of peace, quiet, stillness, stability and thoughtfulness.

Next week will not be nearly so quiet, so take advantage of this serene spell. It’s the final full week of the sun’s journey through healing Cancer and a chance for some important soul searching.

The importance of soul-fortifying activities is not to be overlooked. Music, sports, art, social communion, family — do whatever feeds you on multiple levels. It’s often the seemingly superfluous activities that lift spirits and make memories. Give and accept the gift of nonsense, humor, giggles and silliness. Forget about coming across well. The harder a person tries to make a good impression the worse the impression will likely be. Loosen up and relax, and bonds are formed without effort.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Emmy-winning “Glee” star Jane Lynch plays Sue Sylvester, the world’s nastiest P.E. teacher. Her sun, Mercury and Venus all in Cancer indicates the highly sensitive nature that many comedians share. Cancer crabs learn to protect themselves with their hard shells and pincers of humor. Other feisty Cancer comedians include Sofia Vergara and Jennette McCurdy, who once played Lynch’s daughter.
