Truth Serum Moon

A group of too many “yes” people won’t be as effective as a diverse group of problem solvers. Of course, to solve problems, we must first acknowledge that they exist.  That won’t be a problem under this truth serum of a Scorpio moon. But being too direct under these skies is likely to cause hurt feelings. Strive for gentle, discreet honesty.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The person who has the best ideas isn’t necessarily the one who should be in charge. Leadership and creativity are two different strengths — something to consider as you assemble your team.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Rarely do the circumstances of a project coalesce in a manner as serendipitous as today’s events. As you recognize the element of magic at work here, you will attract more of it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You find a certain person’s proximity to be agreeable. That doesn’t mean you’re in love, and it doesn’t mean you’re not. For now, you’re willing to enjoy the relationship without labels.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The powerful effects of habit will save the day, keeping you on the straight and narrow, doing the things that are good for your health, work, relationships and life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll find other people’s opinions interesting, although you are not likely to agree with many of them. Because you’re willing to listen to many points of view, you’ll come up with better solutions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Belly up to the banquet! Life’s offerings are all-you-can-eat style today. Therefore, if you’re hungry, you’re in for a treat. But self-governing will be necessary to avoid overindulgence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). With something time consuming now behind you, you may wonder what to do next. Pick a goal, any goal. Every goal comes with an automatic guidance system.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Makeovers and do-overs are favored today, and both will happen with a minimal amount of effort. Tonight, those who say they don’t care usually care the most.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). An unusual circumstance is indicated. A battle can be won before it is even fought. Think your way through this. There’s a way to succeed with minimal sacrifice on both sides.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re in tune with everyone, not just the popular and powerful people. There’s someone the others are discounting. Listen carefully to what he or she has to say, and take the message seriously.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The old saying goes that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. These days, many apples don’t want to leave the tree at all, a trend that will affect you in one way or another.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Recognize the limits of the people you’re dealing with. Fair-weather friends are still friends. They are best enjoyed for what they can do. Problems only come if you expect more from them.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 20). The routine care you give is an act of heroism that will, over time, make a profound difference in the lives of others. On the romantic front, you’ll love the proof of love you get in March. Diplomacy is not always in your best interest through April. Honesty makes life less complicated. June brings a treasure hunt. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 22, 14 and 6.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: Do you have any advice for someone born when Venus was retrograde in Leo? I’ve always had a lot of drama around my love life, and it’s getting old. Or maybe I’m just getting old. At 37, I don’t want the same extreme highs and lows anymore. Whom should I settle in with?”

Romantic love is a kind of spell. As anyone who has ever read a fairytale knows, spells have a way of being broken or simply wearing off over time. That’s why it helps when you have many different kinds of love for the same person — the loyal love you feel for country and family, the compassion you feel for the young, old or weak, the playful, competitive love that siblings and friends share. If all of these kinds of love are woven together in the same relationship, it can withstand the precarious ups and downs of romantic love — and even out some of that drama.

My advice to you, Venus retrograde in Leo, is to seek the company of those you feel many different kinds of love for. Someone with a lot of stable earth-sign energy running through his chart would not be a bad choice.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rihanna is always busy these days, topping the charts with exciting collaborations, perfecting her signature makeup line for M.A.C. and, of course, visiting and posing with fans. This pop star was born under an artistic Pisces sun and has Mercury, Mars and Jupiter in this sensitive station of the sky, as well, indicating great levels of empathy and perhaps even psychic ability.
