Full Scorpio Moon and Lunar Eclipse
What happens in Vegas is supposed to stay there, but sometimes it ends up bouncing around the globe in the form of cellphone data instead. The full Scorpio moon has a similarly precarious sense of wild safety around it, but the partial lunar eclipse urges you not to be fooled. Keep your inner animal on a leash.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you request things repeatedly, you’ll sound like a nag, and you’ll be tuned out. So instead, you’ll take matters into your own hands and make it look like fun, too. Others will rush to hop onto your moving train.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The task you’ve been dreading won’t be so bad. Today’s high energy level will make it much easier. Once you get over your initial resistance, it will be smooth sailing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re a social person, but crowds can still cause you stress, especially when you have to keep track of someone or stick with a group. Evening offers just the tranquility you need to calm your nerves.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Does acting “as if” something is true really make it so? Test the theory by assuming a warm familiarity with someone you hardly know. You’ll be surprised at how little time it takes to feel like you’re old friends.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Big projects require big efforts. But perhaps one of the most important efforts you can make right now is simply to get more sleep. Taking great care of yourself will set you up to do optimal work in the days to come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your manner of speaking may be different from that of others, but oh, how you get your point across! The language of emotions is universal, at least in the way you’re communicating now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The difficulties of the past have made you strong and determined to do something remarkable with your life. Those who’ve had it easy may not relate to your past story, but they will be affected by the future you create.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your talents will be highlighted, especially your artistic and interpersonal gifts. This creates a sheen of glamour around you, and you’ll enjoy how others react to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have many friends, but the one who encourages you to give full, enthusiastic expression to your ideas is truly special and will be cherished as such.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As your guiding planet pulls across the sky from the sun, you might be tempted to do whatever it takes to reach a goal. Take a step back and think about this. A righteous process is the ultimate success.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The reason you go forward with duties you aren’t particularly thrilled to carry out is that you know a valuable secret: The bigger life happens beyond the small world of what you want to do.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your understanding of human motivation and behavior will save you from a hassle — that is if you act on what you instinctively know. Don’t be swayed by strong personalities. Stand up for yourself.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 25). Your limited view of yourself will be challenged this year. You’ll rip up the plan and love how your life follows a natural course through the next seven weeks. Then it’s back to the drawing board, and a new goal shapes your decisions. August brings the first in a series of small victories that add up to an October prize. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 4, 33, 12 and 30.
FULL SCORPIO MOON: Scorpio is the most misunderstood energy of the zodiac. It doesn’t help that Scorpio’s symbol is a creature with a painful sting, or that Scorpio rules the sex organs, or that it is associated with the death card of the tarot. You might say that Scorpio specializes in the kind of topics one might avoid in polite conversation. But it just so happens that there wouldn’t be a context for polite conversation if not for the energies that Scorpio rules: life, death, regeneration, existence.
This particular Scorpio moon is pregnant with the profound feeling that your existence is so improbable that you had very well better do something interesting with it, if not something downright great. The lunar eclipse will be a momentary “reset” — a cosmic do-over button that allows a different approach, a fresh attitude or a second shot at what’s important to you.
In her pregnant phase, the Scorpio moon wants us to hold on to hope. Possibilities exist in situations that seem impossible. You never know when and how things will turn around. There is nothing, and then suddenly there is everything. Life is more magical for those who choose to believe.
