Yesterday’s exciting astral events will take a while to process, and the void-of-course Aquarius moon is in absolutely no hurry. Just as a hologram can be projected onto mist or fog to eerie and spectacular effect, the void-of-course moon is the perfect diffused atmosphere in which to project our dramatic Leo sun fantasies.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The knowledge you obtain only makes you want to know more. This interest will soon turn into a passion, and the passion will very quickly make you an expert.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A pecking order is being established, and you may not agree with it. Why, you wonder, should anyone get pecked? Your presence will change this order but not deactivate it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is said that “love enters through the eyes.” Whether this love is fresh or came about many years ago, your eyes will be delighted by the sight of a certain someone.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some believe that saying “I love you” actually dilutes the emotion instead of conveying it. Today you will act to show, not tell, your love. The message will ring out loud and clear.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Too much introspection all at once gets wearying. Do something, preferably unrelated to what’s on your mind. Solve an entirely different problem, and you’ll find that the first issue moves along in a good direction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are good reasons to hold back the floodgates of personal confession, the primary one being that it’s just not cool. Ask yourself who will benefit from learning this something about yourself, and proceed only if the answer is too compelling not to.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not looking for ways to increase your popularity and social success, and yet you’ll naturally gravitate to the habits that attract people. You’ll gain friends whether you want them or not.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Family banter is often less than supportive, but the presence of an outsider can curb that, as everyone acts a little nicer when there’s a witness. Besides, it’s just bad form to bicker in front of a stranger.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In bowling, the difference between a strike and a gutter ball is only a couple of feet. If you lose today, it will be a near-miss situation. So correct your approach and keep trying. You have this.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll spend time in the land of business, where the main concerns have to do with sales, leads, revenues and profits. You’re becoming increasingly comfortable with a deal — keep working on it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be lucky when you relate to older people. Someone with silver in her hair has gold in her heart that she’ll share with you when you make the effort to reach out.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are not interested in making anyone feel bad about themselves in comparison to you. So your style is not to say anything about your accomplishments unless asked — and even then you’ll downplay them.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 23). You exhibit amazing flexibility and will stretch to handle many projects at once. In order to keep from being overburdened, end one project before you start another and get rid of responsibilities along the way. You’ll win a prize in the next 10 weeks. In September, you’ll be paid well for your work and in more ways than just money. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 4, 23, 40 and 11.
DEVELOP YOUR INTUITION, PISCES: It may seem counterintuitive, but the best thing Pisces can do to develop his or her sixth sense is build up layers of protection that will serve as a strong psychic defense. Pisces is already so sensitive and open to ethereal information that what is needed is a filtering system that will limit the amount of input Pisces absorbs and processes.
The last sign of the zodiac is an amalgamation of all the signs before it, which is why Pisces relates so well to others. It’s as though the fish have a piece of each sign in them, and they naturally empathize with whatever the other signs are going through. The open awareness and emotional connection that Pisces radiates also makes Pisces highly impressionable. In short, Pisces picks up on people’s karma and takes it on.
Psychic protection can be established through mindfulness, though it helps to create a ritual that will increase attention to this matter. One such ritual is to wear a talisman for protection. Imagine that this talisman radiates a bubble of spiritual energy around Pisces that is sealed with a membrane allowing only the best and highest energies to permeate Pisces’ realm.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Daniel Radcliffe has earned hundreds of millions of dollars playing literature’s most famous wizard, and his strong natal chart supports the accomplishment. His sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars are all in Leo, the sign of the entertainer and show business. Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are all in Capricorn, the sign of business moguls. A fiery Aries moon suggests an endless supply of passion and energy.
