Truth-Telling Scorpio Moon
Poor listeners are interested only when they get to speak. They interrupt often, are easily distracted and give little energy to others. At least you’ll find that some poor listeners are teachable. The Scorpio moon suggests that if you dare to call one out today — as tactfully as possible, of course — you’ll be doing the world a favor.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes you wonder whether you were cut out for the job you are doing. Are you strong enough? Probably not initially, but it’s the job that makes you strong as you do it. Every day you are gaining strength.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re going to give your time away to the things that interest and fascinate you. You try to do so mindfully, but overly seductive electronics and media make this very challenging for you today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sure, maybe they are competing with you. But at least your friends and neighbors make you aspire to be your best self. You’ll walk that fine line between encouragement and competition today.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can be afraid of something and want it at the same time. But if you’re going to get it, your want has to outweigh your fear. Immerse yourself in thoughts of what you want — it will make you courageous.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Ancient man regarded volcanoes as god’s anger. Modern man understands it’s just nature’s way of letting off pressure. But that doesn’t make it any less destructive. When you come across emotional volcanoes, flee the danger zone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You desire to become more self-sufficient, and you will. You only have to put more of yourself into the projects you know will forward your interests. You’ll benefit from being a bit more serious about this now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are successful in part for your ability to make snap decisions. However, this is a day to avoid jumping to conclusion or judgment. Wait until the whole story comes out.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s some conflict that comes with the day. You feel as though you’re doing better in one area and worse in another. Just know that growth can be strange like this, but all is building in a positive way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Love yourself enough to give yourself the things you want. It will take sacrifice. But be a good coach to yourself, the kind who keeps an eye to the long view. Don’t let yourself give up too soon.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You hold yourself to a different standard from that of the others around you, mostly because it never occurred to you that you should do what they are doing. You are your own person, and that’s working for you now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll enjoy your setting. It’s the sparkle of windows, a shimmer in the air, the intrigue of strangers… It all brings a strange mix of feelings. You may feel nostalgic for this time even as you experience it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have to be a charming conversationalist if you are a charmed listener. This is such a rare gift that it trumps many of the other social graces. Your deep wells of empathy will help you develop this skill.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 16). Success accompanies your methods this month, especially when you put effort into sales. Community events affect you, and you’ll become a leader in August. You’ll follow tradition and make big bucks in September and December. Be discerning in love. Your love life improves when you listen to your best friends. Taurus and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 23, 31, 17 and 49.
DEVELOP YOUR INTUITION, LIBRA: The connection Libra has with loved ones is the root of Libra’s intuition. It’s as though there are invisible cords that entwine Libra’s soul with the soul of each person Libra loves. This connection is strongest with Libra’s chosen partners. It transcends time and space. Libra can send and receive messages through this cord regardless of where the other person is in the world and even beyond after a loved one has passed into other dimensions. When this happens, Libra often experiences special times of luck in which Libra may believe that the partner who has passed is gifting Libra with insight and help from the other side.
Here’s an exercise to strengthen Libra’s intuitive powers: Sit quietly with one hand lightly touching the heart like you would during the Pledge of Allegiance. Focus on your breath, breathing slowly in and out. Choose a loved one, and hold this person in your heart. Place your other hand on your navel. Imagine a silver cord stretching from you to the other person. Ask: “If my loved one has something to express to me, what might it be?” Let yourself float on the wings of this question, detached and listening to the answers.

Lucky Jupiter in Leo lends Ferrell an entertaining edge.
