The Cancer moon has a way of stirring the soul and mixing up deep feelings, all the while making it seem by the glossy, hard surface of her crabby shell that everything is normal and perfectly intact. The Cancer moon is like a police officer handling crowd control: “Move along, people. There’s nothing to look at here.”
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You never know how badly you wanted to unburden your soul until it’s done. Feelings have a way of flying from your lips. You’ll say what you never meant to say and be so glad you did.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). During the time of the Cancer sun, it’s important to remember that home is a community of sorts. Your expression of love is closely tied to the way you express yourself in the domestic environment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You could argue that “your heart isn’t in it,” although no one would listen to such an argument. There are very few who know how to put their heart into the task at hand, and the ones who do are quite busy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). All of the rules of social conduct apply. If you think it’s too late to call someone, it probably is. Bad behavior breeds more of the same. Habits, both good and bad, have a way of rubbing off.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Letting others entertain you is fun, but it’s your own impetus that will bring you the most joy. Fly the kite of your imagination. It will take you to surprising places now. Also, it’s much cheaper than other forms of travel.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel compelled to connect others only when you have a fair understanding of where the connection might lead. Having control over what happens will seem crucial, though it may not actually be crucial.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you want to remember what you did and what happened to you in your lifetime, you are halfway to immortality. The other half is making sure to take pictures and write notes. These are good times.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The one you admire is in awe of you, as well. Keep in mind, though, that everyone has a different way of showing feelings, if they choose to show them at all. Be self-assured, and just do your thing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though you always learn more by losing than you learn by winning, every time you win there’s something in you that bursts alive. Play short games, and you’ll handle both winning and losing gracefully today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The one who helped you in your time of need also helped you in your time of not needing. The latter help is most rare and should have more weight in your scorekeeping — if indeed you happen to be keeping score.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Love at first glance is more common than people think. What’s harder to understand is how people stay in love after years of gazing upon the same face. That’s the kind of love you want in your life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A frugal approach in all you do will serve you well today. For instance, go for the basic suit. It’s a better value than all of the pricey accessories that go along with it.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 17). In the next 10 weeks, you’ll make a move you’ve been wanting to make for a very long time. Your courage will open doors. August and September are the most romantic months, with laughter and dancing. November brings the chance to put away money for future ventures. March brings family together in shared joy. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 24, 38, 28 and 17.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Does this sound insane? I think my computer is guided by otherworldly powers. It freezes when I need a break from work anyway, and certain functions don’t work at interesting times. For instance, it won’t talk to the printer, which made me have to associate with a certain very handsome co-worker. And now I tend to let it affect my decisions. When a website won’t load quickly, I assume it’s because I wasn’t supposed to go there, and I quickly get out. When I can’t easily send an email, I delete the email entirely and rethink the correspondence. When I can’t make a purchase easily, I think I wasn’t meant to have it and I bail. The handsome co-worker has said I’m crazy, by the way.” — Scorpio at the Office
Your computer and my computer should be friends. I have had similar experiences with technology, and I love my laptop like a pet. I believe that every object has an energy about it, and when you interact with an object, often your energies start to intermingle. Also, you imprint yourself in some way on your computer, and now your computer is starting to imprint right back on your life choices.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Media mogul Mark Burnett produced “Survivor,” created “The Apprentice” and continues to strongly influence television programming with new shows yearly. It is no surprise that this intuitive Cancer was born when Venus (love, aesthetics and creativity) and Uranus (revolution and excitement) were in Leo, the sign of entertainment.
