Feeling Spendy? Blame the Taurus Moon
You’ve heard what happens when a bull enters a china shop, and a bull in a department store is no better — especially with the Taurus moon casting a love spell on all credit cards. Swiping the magnetic strip is dangerous in this lunar climate, which stimulates our appetite for luxury. If you can’t resist, at least keep track of your receipts.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even the trickiest relationships have an upside. There is a compelling reason why you should try to get along with a certain prickly person. You’ll be better for the effort.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will be paid well for one of your more unusual skills. You’ll take it to the next level, mastering the details. You could really make a niche for yourself and dominate it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Taking action is good, but taking action consistently is the only way to guarantee success. So make it easy on yourself. Move things around so your schedule and environment support consistent action.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those who act tough are really hiding a tender heart. You understand this because you’ve done the same thing on countless occasions. It takes one to know one.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know what you require in order to feel well taken care of, but you don’t always make the necessary arrangements. Don’t sacrifice your self-care now. Feeling good about yourself first will allow you to give more.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are a few reasons why you’ll sleep well tonight. Over the course of the day, you’ll act in clear conscience, and you’ll also exert a fair amount of physical energy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It will feel good to lose your self-consciousness and join the group mindset for a moment. You help others do this, too. You have a way of relaxing people and drawing them out of themselves.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a growing affection for a certain person. It’s only obvious to the keenest of observers, but most people are too busy with their own scene to fall into that category today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re given to extremes, and it’s something you should try to rein in. Treat yourself, but don’t overindulge. Keep in mind that the very thing that makes something a treat is that you don’t get it often.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your kindness is powerful. The best part is that it comes easily to you now. A smile, a compliment or a gift from you could change someone’s entire day.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Self-discipline is a rare gift. You tell yourself what to do, and then you do it. Amazing! It helps that you are also accountable to another person for a very specific result.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Invite others to help you. One good friend could make all of the difference in your level of productivity. Companionship will turn a daunting task into a bit of fun.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 25). Whatever you used up, you get more of in December, when resources both practical and intangible are renewed. January features emotional growth through a special relationship. You’ll look at work and possessions differently in February and make changes. Social status rises in March and April. Travel in July. Taurus and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 38 and 17.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: If you think the Earth’s North Pole is intense, you should consider how Uranians feel about their North Pole (even though Uranians don’t exist). Because of the axis of Uranus, a person standing at the North Pole (impossible) would experience one day of sunlight (lasting approximately 42 Earth years) followed by one sunless day (also lasting 42 Earth years). As you can imagine, this could produce some rather extreme attitudes. But even before the ancient Greeks knew about the unusual axis of this beauty queen of a planet, Uranus had a reputation for extremes. Luckily, this week those extremes will seem to favor us, as the difficult arrangement of Uranus and Mars dissipates and more hospitable alignments take shape. The sun forms a harmonious trine with Uranus on Monday, the same day Mercury goes direct and Venus conjoins with Saturn in Scorpio. Passion will be expressed suddenly in sweeping gestures and startling ventures. Some will experience the feeling of being swept up in a rush of euphoria. Others will get proof that they are being divinely guided. The best part is the effortless sharing of stories and insights thanks to Mercury’s smooth forward motion.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: The eagerly awaited continuation of Veronica Corningstone’s story is now in the works as Christina Applegate, Will Ferrell and many others from the cast of “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” reassemble for “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.” Applegate was born when five luminaries were in Sagittarius making her a fiery adventurer through and through.
