Trending Gemini Moon
The Gemini moon is a harmonious complement to the other air-sign influences currently in the sky, including the sun and Mercury in Libra, the arbiter of good taste. These lighthearted, intellectual muses throw the focus onto what’s new, novel and worth sharing. Make the most of this sky by exploring a trend or starting one.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Beware of those who associate with you primarily because they think it makes them look better. While this is flattering, it’s so superficial that you can’t trust the connection. It could change at any moment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You believe in every person’s right to live well. That’s why it makes you angry when people waste the things that would mean so much to another person. You’ll proudly take part of an effective redistribution.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You believe that life is full of beauty. But for some reason, people talking about that in overly simplistic and sentimental ways makes you feel inwardly rebellious. You prefer to find beauty on your own terms.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Should you stick to your ritual or veer from it? Every time you repeat an action, it strengthens the neural pathways in your brain that make the next repetition easier. Will that be better for you or worse?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just because you can sense the layers inside yourself and spend time in those depths doesn’t mean others are able to do this. Your gift for introspection is a rare talent to celebrate.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A person who enjoys you will tend to overlook any less than perfect things you do and even make up reasons why your flaws and mistakes are actually glorious.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are those who will try to get away with anything and everything they can. It’s up to you to uphold the ideal of justice for all. Where justice is denied, everyone suffers, not only the oppressed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s as though the wind wants to mess up your hair — and not in a mean way, but in an older sibling way that lets you know that wherever you are, someone is keeping you in check.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Anger is an emotion that makes you seek your own interest instead of seeking the truth. That’s why it’s better not to make any decisions or try to express yourself in the heat of an angry moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). So often the roles we cut out for ourselves become like traps. Real power is feeling that you are free to be the role or not and come or go as you please.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your sign mate Abraham Lincoln, the great humanitarian and 16th president of the United States, said, “When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. And that is my religion.”
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When receiving a compliment on work that was done by someone else, for instance for a haircut or an item of clothing, some take the credit. You’ll assign it appropriately, and your honesty attracts an admirer.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 24). Your talents shine this year, but do not rely on them. It’s hard work and dedication that will see you through the finish line of a big project. Someone with opposing views will make your work and life richer in October. You’ll get to experience something special and exclusive in December. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 2, 33, 19 and 4.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Do you think it’s unreasonable to ask the teen I hire to babysit my 7-year-old not to use her cellphone while she’s working? My other friends don’t seem to care. My husband says it’s just the future. But I can’t stand for my daughter to have that kind of example to look up to. And I’m an Aquarius!”
Your Aquarian ease with and love of technology stop right at the point where technology interferes with human interest. Your child deserves to have a distraction-free interaction with the babysitter who is working for you. Your babysitter is also a child, and you are not doing her any favors by teaching her that it’s fine to be constantly on her cellphone in a professional setting. As an employer, it’s your responsibility to communicate your expectations of this child employee. Here’s some verbiage you might try:
At our house, we have a policy that babysitters are only to use their phones for emergencies, urgent situations or to talk with their own parents or us. We prefer you to be fully present with our child while you are on the clock. Our child looks up to you, and we are counting on you to set an example of being fully attentive to others.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas were born on the same day of the same month. The rumors currently swirling around the high-octane duo suggest they may not celebrate the day together this year, but this astrologer is hoping that love will win out in the end for these once star-crossed lovers born under the sign of partnership and cooperation.
