Capricorn Lunar Leader

The Capricorn moon is a no-nonsense authoritarian. This lunar influence melds so nicely with the Taurus sun that compliance with all that’s correct and productive seems mandatory. The powers that be are not always right, but as long as they are not blatantly wrong, you’ll learn by following their dictates.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). In those moments when your attention goes to problems (or problem people), you are ignoring successes (or helpful people). Progress will occur faster when you focus on what’s right in your world.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Greater self-control will be necessary in order to navigate today’s many temptations. The saving grace is that if you muster up the willpower, you’ll immediately be rewarded.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Yes, your responsibilities are many. But you don’t have to handle everything at once. Ordering your tasks by priority, size and timing will help you stave off negative thoughts and avoid feeling overwhelmed.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you ask people to do things that do not come naturally to them, the process will be a struggle for both of you. Observe the strengths of others, and align your requests accordingly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don’t underestimate how deeply people might fall in love with you. Your strange power over heartstrings is nothing to toy around with. It won’t be fun to be loved much more than you love.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just because something is legal doesn’t mean it’s moral, and neither are all illegal acts immoral. Use your judgment and heed your conscience, as well as your gut feelings.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll roll with what happens, not letting any single event deter you from your purpose. At the same time, you realize that it is more important to keep moving along than it is to arrive at any one destination.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Most vengeance is small-minded and shows a lack of character. Noble people are also merciful people. If there are exceptions to the rule, they are few and far between.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your natural passion sometimes presents itself in the form of anger. You can avoid getting angry, though, by removing yourself from situations that have the potential to make you blow your stack.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mountain-goat side will be activated. Just because you don’t reach the highest peak today doesn’t mean your climb was in vain. The altitude you achieve now will help you with tomorrow’s climb.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People show and interpret affection differently. What you recognize as genuine caring might not register with another person. Through trial and error, you’ll figure out how best to communicate your love.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you think of a certain person, conflicting emotions arise. To hold these tumultuous feelings inside takes complexity, intelligence and a deep soul.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 30). You are talented and powerful. Honor your many gifts by paying attention to those who do the work you don’t have to do. The efforts of outsiders allow you to grow and master your craft. By giving your loved ones what they need, you ensure your happy existence. Invest in a September vacation. Your love signs are Leo and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 8, 5, 6 and 9.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I recently visited some of my relatives only to find out that their political, social and religious beliefs are so far from my own that I have a hard time listening to their viewpoints without growing deeply agitated. How can someone I’m genetically close to be so ideologically distant? Do you have any advice for an opinionated Libra?”

Yours is the sign of diplomacy, dear Libra. If anyone can put on a nice smile, disseminate hugs and kiss babies, it’s you. Unless your relatives plan to run for office against you, there is little reason for them to bring up a political agenda for you to refute. It wouldn’t hurt to remind them that politics and religion needn’t be discussed in polite company. Better yet, remind yourself, and then stay out of it. And remember that in politics and in any other kind of conflict, debate or dance: It takes two to tango. If you don’t engage, there won’t be anything to fight for or against. Note: This doesn’t make you weak or apathetic. It is a way of conserving your energy so that when it’s time to fight for what you believe is right, you’ll be ready.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Taurean humor is sharp and dry. Case in point: Johnny Galecki. Nerds everywhere know him as Dr. Leonard Hofstadter, the brainiac who bridged the worlds of geeks and girls in the hit television series “The Big Bang Theory.” Those who enjoy a Christmas tradition that includes the 1989 Griswold family classic “Christmas Vacation” know Galecki as the young Rusty Griswold.
