Full Twin Moon

The full moon in Gemini, the sign of the twins, opens our eyes to the dualities of our world. The yin and yang, the good and evil, and the creative and destructive forces may seem at odds with each other, but they actually work together and even depend on each other for their very existence. Today will bring a perfect example of it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Traffic, weather, the passage of time — all things you can’t change, but oh, how you would if you could today. A happy friend will help you enjoy the many things over which you do have control.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a test and/or major passage coming up, and the outcome will depend on how prepared you are. Spend time on it today, and plan on spending more time in the days to come. Make a daily habit out of it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even the most graceful relationships are messy. To love another is to make a mess of something, be it feelings, thoughts, schedules or property. Something is bound to get broken and that’s just part of it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s like you’re in a period-piece romance in which your attractive co-star is acting stoic and distant because he or she is in love with you. A handwritten note will drive the drama home.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are able to put your own needs and wishes aside in order to understand what others want and need out of a situation. This allows you to project the image you feel will most influence others. Use your powers for good!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If there’s one thing to be learned today, it’s to have more patience waiting in lines. Impatient, tight, mad faces are ugly, and they make everyone else’s experience ugly, too. The superior mind smiles while waiting.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s one of those rare times when it’s actually positive to dwell on the past. You’ll learn something. There’s a bit you missed, and when you look back, it will click into place for you. This changes how you think of yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don’t resent other people’s success, though it does get on your nerves from time to time, especially if said “other people” won’t shut up about it. Ignore the boasters. It will drive them crazy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are able to present the truth in a way that others want to hear — not necessarily a lie, but also not the complete story. Be careful. Someone may be using the same trick on you. Can you detect it?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Perhaps it would be better for everyone if people would do things in accordance with your timeline, but they won’t. Nagging won’t help matters. Your attractive attitude is the best tool you have for influencing others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t require your loved ones to be or believe as you do. Being whole on your own, you can disagree with someone and still hold that person’s hand.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just because something is working doesn’t mean you should leave it alone. You’ll see an example of a superior product, system or relationship and be inspired to take your own scene up a level.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 17). You attract the people you most need this year. Loved ones harmonize with you on multiple levels. Keep circulating through January — one important contact will burst open economic opportunity for you. Follow a new professional plan in March. June and August are the luckiest months for lifestyle upgrades. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 22, 28 and 29.

HOLIDAY STRESS RELIEVERS: So many feel spent and blue in December. What can you do to counteract holiday stress?

LIBRA: The expression “breathtaking beauty” is more than verbiage; it describes an actual physiological response that occurs quite often in aesthetically minded individuals like Libra, for whom beauty is intrinsically connected to breath. The experience of beauty strikes a chord deep in Libra’s being that physically calms and relaxes Libra as it resonates. Since this time of year highlights great feats of decoration as well as an austere aspect of nature, there is much to appreciate in the environment and plenty of opportunities for experiencing beauty. Libra can de-stress by taking advantage of as many of them as possible, from majestic natural scenery to manmade displays such as light shows and shop windows.

Creating loveliness in daily life is also a way for Libra to unwind. Of course, it’s not always easy to get the desired results, and so patience may be required. Whether crafting a gorgeous package, assembling the perfect table arrangement or simply putting together a great outfit, the result doesn’t have to be exactly breathtaking to create a calm sense of satisfaction.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Giovanni Ribisi joins an all-star cast including Charlize Theron, Seth MacFarlane, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and more in the upcoming comedy/western “A Million Ways To Die in the West.” Typical of his adventurous Sagittarius nature, Ribisi has explored outer space in “Avatar” and visited many time periods on Earth, such as World War II in “Saving Private Ryan.”
