Moon of Curiosity

Maybe it’s not such a bad thing that there are cameras everywhere these days. People who are caught on video don’t lie nearly as much as those who were never recorded. Big Brother is not the only one watching during this curious Sagittarius moon. You’ll get the sense that the whole cosmic family is sitting around with a bowl of popcorn.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s still something to be learned from that time long ago. You’ll gather your memories and look for common themes. Someone else who was there can shed new light on the matter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be taken care of. Believing this makes you live better. Your faith will free you. You won’t be so focused on security that you’re afraid to branch out, try new things and experience life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is magical potential wrapped up in the day. You’ll feel like a wizard as you concoct the perfect plan. Your high level of concentration will energize your work.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel caught in between two worlds: cut off from what you are leaving behind, but not yet connected to your new future. Step forward in faith, because you’re doing the right thing. Keep moving.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even though you have many interests, it will take something brand-new to stretch and energize you. Be on the lookout for the book, hobby or pursuit that will help you stay strong, young and relevant.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s only natural to want to please the people close to you, including those who pay you. But recognize that while their approval may be necessary in the scheme of work, it doesn’t speak to your worth as a person.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Worrying about money is silly now, and it will ruin your mood, too. Believe that you have more than enough and that anything you need you’ll find a way to earn. Be peaceful on the matter.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Themes of the day include knowing what you can do and being independently strong. Remind yourself of the times when you have prevailed. Give yourself a pep talk, and then go create more proof.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whether you are in a position to lead those who don’t readily take direction or are following someone whose leadership you don’t understand, you won’t regret being patient and kind.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll accept opportunities you once would have dismissed. Those options didn’t seem to fit before, but your life has changed, and now you can see how to make use of what’s presented to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Ordered serenity is an ideal that is not always represented in your environment. But today this may work for you. Messy circumstances may cause you to rely more on instinct and bring out your spontaneity.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It will take a while for you to get into a productive frame of mind, but once you get into the right headspace, you’ll be unstoppable. Take precautions to guard against distractions.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 26). You’ll be drawn to endeavors that expand your spiritual awareness, intuition and artistic sensibility. Accepting authority will be challenging in July, and you’ll have some mischievous fun, too. The physical work you do in August makes you strong and attractive. Fall will be marked by optimism and romantic adventures. Leo and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 38, 22, 1 and 17.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: In the wake of the full moon and lunar eclipse, the week gets off to a slow start, but the Capricorn moon won’t stand for full relaxation. Even those who don’t work on Monday will find it hard to resist thinking about work and making some lists and plans. The Gemini solar transit inspires us to update our methods, too. Under the influence of this bright and adaptable energy, many will see the benefit to staying on trend. Look for apps that will help you with your mission, whatever it may be.

Friday is a pivotal day. Mercury shifts into Cancer adding emotionality to communication that some will find comfortable, warm and right, and others will find foreign and uncomfortable. Logic is an important part of communication, but it is not the biggest part. From an evolutionary standpoint, logic comes from a newer part of the brain. Mercury in Cancer challenges us to use our intuition even when it flies in the face of logic.

A few hours after Mercury shifts into Cancer mode, Mars slips into Gemini, and immediately the warrior planet begins to lighten up. Talking things out will be natural and fun. Conflict will be prevented. Humor will diffuse tension.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Versatile Gemini Helena Bonham Carter will soon play Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming BBC movie “Burton and Taylor.” From the Red Queen to Shakespearean damsels, Bonham Carter’s ability to embody a wide variety of characters is so impressive and extreme that she is nearly a shape shifter. Bonham Carter was born under a creative Leo moon.
