Post Full Moon

The excitement of yesterday’s full moon now wanes as the lunar torch passes from Cancer to Leo. There are still hot spots in the emotional soup. Feelings boiled yesterday, and now they’ll simmer. If you’re not careful, you still could be burned. The Leo lunar element reminds us to be playful and light whenever possible.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Worrying about every little thing you are given and whether or not you have contributed enough to earn it is a waste of energy. If you’re given something, it’s probably for a good reason. Enjoy it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have big talents and little affinity for publicizing them. That’s fine — stay modest. There are people around you now who will do all the marketing for you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You won’t feel like leaving the thing that’s working well, but this is no time to get too comfortable at home. Your best source of luck and love is miles away from your front door.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). To find your own identity, you sometimes have to try others on for size. By the way, identity quests are not strictly for very young people. You’ve had many incarnations thus far, and you’ll have many more.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is danger in every life. You know better than to expose yourself to it unnecessarily, even though this may be a particularly slow time danger-wise. Seek other kinds of excitement.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your active mind will latch on to an idea and spin it every which way. Every question leads to another. You’re curious, and this is why you’ll learn, do and be more successful.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do you remember your dreams? There’s information there that will shed light on a relationship. Increased spiritual awareness and intuitive ability are part of your cosmic gift now through the weekend.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Other people’s organized efforts will interest you and inspire you to start a program of your own. Physical activities are favored, as is participation in the arts, music and entertainment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You and your siblings or neighbors will get together for a group venture. This will be remembered later by the youngest and eldest of the group, so be sure to include them in a meaningful way.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Discussion ensues, first in person and then through email and text messages. Take care that the version of your thoughts that makes it into writing is full of sensitivity and humanity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can’t predict how a project will turn out because there are too many variables involved now. Narrow down the variables, and you’ll have more control over the outcome.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s something valuable to be gained from relating to someone who thinks very differently than you. Be bold. Talk to people you don’t know about what you’re doing. Male relationships are favored.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 16). New people will be interested in you, drawn in by your stylish aesthetics and cool factor. It’s important to complete personal goals before allowing yourself to get wrapped up in something new. Love heavily influences the way you think and communicate. February and June are especially dreamy in this regard. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 22, 14 and 45.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m shy. I have Venus in Pisces, which I’m told makes me more sensitive. Any advice for someone who finds talking to people to be a painful activity?”

Even though conversations are painful for you at times, you feel driven to take part in them, and that’s what makes your position so difficult. Wanting to be social, fun and interesting is what makes it hard for you to relax. If you had no expectation of the conversation, you wouldn’t get so nervous. So stop expecting yourself to do well. Maybe expect yourself to do poorly. This will free you up to make mistakes (everyone does) and start learning how to be fine with them.

Your sensitivity is actually a good thing. Sure, you’re sensitive to your own feelings, but you’re also highly attuned to the feelings of others. That will be your ticket to ride, conversationally. Keep focusing on the other person and thinking about how you might engage this person in play. Play is better than exchanging information. Make “play” your conversational goal.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Considered one of the top pure hitters of all time, Albert Pujols practiced playing baseball using limes for balls when he was a child. Ingenuity and drive are qualities Capricorns are known for, and Pujols has his natal sun, moon and Mercury in the competitive realm of the sea goat. His Venus in Pisces indicates a spiritual connection to his work and play.
