Virgo Moon Call To Action

As the conjunction of Mercury and Saturn breaks apart, so will our attachment to certain outcomes. We can’t control how others feel, what they say or how they act. But we can find an interpretation of events that is positive and constructive. The Virgo moon reminds us that these are the days that make us better people if we rise to the occasion.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Love comes in many forms over the course of the next 24 hours. Sometimes it will be tender and curious; other times it’s boisterous and bossy. You’ll appreciate the many variations.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Success will depend on clear communication. It’s better to ask questions than to make assumptions. If you’re not clicking with someone, don’t force it. Talk to more people until you find someone you do click with.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will combine your learned experience with dedicated research to create something new. You’ll have to repeat this process several times before you get the desired result. With each iteration, you’ll be closer.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take control of your social life. You don’t need more friends; you need better relationships. Put your feelers out there. Where does the connection seem strongest? Instead of wider, you need to go deeper.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You see potential in others that may or may not be there, but there’s no harm in believing the best. You have a nurturing spirit and want nothing more than for the people around you to thrive and grow to their capabilities.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s the perfect time to get nosy and figure out how others are running their lives. There are more and less appealing ways to go about things, but the proof of a strategy is always in the results.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Passionate people get things done — and undone. They can be unpredictable about it. Today’s responsibility is best given to an even person who can be counted on to deliver steady results.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want to give each person the deserved amount, but since that’s a judgment call that is bound to make you unpopular, it’s better to allot each person the same amount, deserved or not.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don’t have to be the one to save the world today. Leave it for someone who has more energy to burn. You’re in too mellow of a mood. Savor the world instead.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The natural way of language is to develop. You get a thrill from hearing new words or the same words used differently. That’s why you enjoy talking to people who come from a different time and/or place.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even if you don’t believe in the rules or think they don’t apply to you, you’ll follow them for the sake of playing along. Since there will be consequences for breaking the rules, it’s a wise choice for now.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You won’t think a lot about your own self-worth until something happens as a direct result of how you’ve valued yourself. Remember, it’s just an opinion, and you can always change it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 26). You’ll unite people and then do amazing things with but a small group of supporters. Give your love where it is needed, and do not waste your efforts on parasites. The fruits of your labor multiply in January and again in July. August brings a life-changing commitment. You’ll use your talent to control a difficult situation. Pisces and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 3 and 17.

PUPPY PROFILE: If you know when your pet was born, check out his or her sun sign and the personality that goes with it.

LEO: Just as Leo people are born entertainers, the Leo puppy has something inside that wants to entertain and delight. Truth be told, this lion of a pup wants all of the attention all of the time, but will usually settle for most of the attention most of the time. The Leo dog takes adorable to new heights. Adorableness is a secret weapon, a key to forgiveness and a method for obtaining table scraps.

Leo has a strong drive to be the alpha dog, as this pooch is from the royal sector of the zodiac and feels entitled to wear the crown. Discipline can be a problem with a dog who thinks he deserves to rule over his human, but with consistent leadership laid down from the start, this dog will fall into line. Ultimately, the Leo dog is a pleaser and just needs to be shown the right way to do this.

The Leo dog is filled with family pride and is loyal and will protect ferociously regardless of breed. If he feels his family is at risk, even a teacup-sized puppy can be fearsome!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: True to her Sagittarian roots, soulful pop star Natasha Bedingfield uplifts with her optimistic lyrics. Those ruled by lucky Jupiter often turn small things big and bad things around with the sheer force of their stellar positive attitude. Bedingfield was born when four luminaries were in this fiery part of the sky and three luminaries were in harmonious Libra.
