Moody Scorpio Moon

Every summer, someone is bound to say, “It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity.” Before you roll your eyes, the Scorpio moon, void of course, urges us to apply this to our personal lives today: It’s not that a loved one has a bad temper, but that the atmosphere lately has pushed some of us to the brink. Open a window or two and let in a fresh mood.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Work or school might feel like an albatross around your neck, but don’t despair: An unexpected encounter will remind you that you have wings of your own, and you’re just waiting for the right moment to take flight.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you’ve ever actually sung the blues, you know how the things that make you sad can be the very same things that lift your spirits once expressed. Try it. If you don’t sing, at least talk about what’s troubling you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your network of far-flung friends and relations maybe doesn’t feel exactly like a net, but rather more like an exhausting trap of obligations and duties. Let everyone know that you’re taking a well-deserved break.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don’t need to have a thrilling time to have a good time. You’ll be more reasonable than your friends in this regard. You have a charming way of projecting the voice of reason.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You hate to feel indebted to people. You’ll return favors, give gratitude and contribute big. But there’s a sense that you can’t get even with some people who always want to give you more. Perhaps because they need the upper hand?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You strive for a pure heart, clear mind and devout soul. It doesn’t always work out that way. On the bright side, vice in moderation can be a bonding agent between people.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Pleasant surprises are still surprises, and today you’re just not in the mood to be startled in any way. Luckily, you will be able to control your environment to a large degree.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Good fortune is the result of good planning. Of course, for a plan to work, you have to follow it, which you will with a few exceptions. Today you’re the perfect mix of being structured and in the moment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When it comes to the daily dance of juggling work and family, you’ve often felt as if you have two left feet and a bad case of vertigo. But others only see how well you can spin those plates without dropping them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Older people tend to project an illusion of happiness onto younger people who may or may not feel that way. This moon helps you tune in to the truth of the matter, though, and reach out as needed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You love mischievous and playful people, but not dishonest people. The distinctions can get a bit murky. Don’t be afraid to clear them up, though, and sooner rather than later.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even when you are not among your true and sincere friends, you can still be yourself. In fact, that’s the best person to be to attract new true and sincere friends.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 18). You prefer slow, steady change to jarring transformations this year and will get your wish. Because of this style, you’ll enjoy the unfolding of who you are becoming. Children figure into your professional and personal life in September. A savvy investment pays off in December. Libra and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 43, 11 and 16.

DEVELOP YOUR INTUITION, SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius is the sign of travel. It’s not just the idea of travel that gets this sign’s mind spinning, it’s a drive to go see for oneself: to get proof that strange lands do exist and to lay hands on the rocks, water and trees that are there; to see what’s inside the buildings and eat what’s on the plates; to touch and smell and know, really know, the experience “over there.”

In this light, Sagittarius people tend toward the gift of psychometry. Holding an object in their hands is a way of channeling information about that object, the people who owned it and other relevant information. Sagittarians who want to further develop this talent need only sit quietly holding an object and express the images that come to mind. These images don’t have to make sense and often won’t, but go with whatever thought pops up while in contact with the energetic field of the object. Make note of the mood, emotions, temperature, sounds and accompanying visuals and associations. This exercise is best done completely blind, meaning with objects the Sagittarius knows absolutely nothing about. Sagittarius might be amazed at how many associations resonate with meaning for the person who owns the object.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Country music star Luke Bryan channels his water-sign energy into songs such as “Rain Is a Good Thing,” “It’s a Shore Thing” and “Shake the Sand.” Bryan was born when the sun and Mercury were in the soulful sign of the crab and lucky Jupiter was in Taurus, the sign of interesting and powerful voices. His Venus and Saturn in Leo lend an entertaining edge.
