Full Moon Eve

Those who are inclined to tease, joke and provoke will be in rare form on this full moon eve. If you’re playing a game, the stakes will be raised. If you’re working on a project, you’ll feel the crunch. The tension that has been building will continue to wind up through the entire day and night until the release of tomorrow’s wild Scorpio full moon.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Set learning goals for yourself instead of performance goals. By learning, you will automatically become a more competent performer, but if you perform well without learning, it will be hard to repeat the success.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t think about earning another person’s trust, because you are honest and real, and it never occurred to you that anyone would think otherwise. Beware of the one who tries too hard to win your confidence.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is a well-known fact that sentences that start with “no offense” or “with all due respect” will usually end with offensive, disrespectful notions. You genuinely value the sensibilities of others and will tolerate those who don’t.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your experience will translate well to others now, so be sure to share it. You can really make a difference in someone’s life just by talking about what you’ve done and learned.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are interested in others. Being friendly isn’t really an effort or something you do because you are self-confident. It’s a natural extension of your curiosity. You’ll make a new friend today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll work a bit at radiating the finer qualities of your gender. The attention you receive in return is most satisfying and could lead to interesting connections and relationships.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The person who quietly reminds you or nudges you ever so gently when you get off track is a true friend and guide. Keep this person close, and be ready for your chance to return the favor.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There is someone who seems intent on impressing you despite the fact (or maybe because of the fact) that you are not so easily impressed these days. Your skepticism only makes this one try harder.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Business is a bit like a complicated television remote control. Unless you know the right sequence of actions to follow, you are unlikely to tune into the programming of your choice.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Like an expert poker player adept at bluffing, you sense when another person isn’t telling the truth. You may also sense an advantage to going along with the ruse for a while.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re a visual creature, and you like things to look a certain way. This may seem impractical to others around you, but keep developing your ideas, and they will soon agree with your aesthetic sense.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your happiness is not selfish. It will, in fact, be very good for someone close to you. You are more patient and forgiving when you have a positive feeling buzzing through your experience.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 24). It’s as though your ancestors and all who have loved you and left the earthly plane are cheering for you this year. Strange and even miraculous events may be attributed to otherworldly support. Love abounds in May. New work will change your outlook and increase your prospects. Family wounds heal in October. Pisces and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 44, 39, 2 and 20.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My life has been completely uprooted by the illness of my husband’s mother. I left my job as a teacher midway through the year, and we moved across three states to be closer to her during her decline. I totally support my husband in this decision and hope for the best for my mother in-law, and yet I can’t help but feel derailed by the change. I secretly resent changing everything to care for my husband’s family while leaving my own. Do you have any advice for a Cancer homebody who hates changing homes?”

As the sign of mothers, Cancer is uniquely in tune with the maternal bond. You will not regret the sacrifices you’re making to support your husband and mother in-law at this critical moment in time. By the same token, your feelings are valid, and they do need expression. Do you have someone with whom you can regularly communicate your feelings and concerns in their full intensity? Given the circumstances, your husband is obviously not the right person for this role now. A counselor, a trusted friend or even a diary with a lock could be the best tool in your arsenal for getting through this period gracefully.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: America’s first “Idol,” Kelly Clarkson, was born when the sun was in the sign that rules the voice. Taurus singers are at a definite advantage, with strong vocal cords, an excellent sense of timing and the determination to make headway in the very competitive realm of music. Clarkson has her sun, moon and Mercury all in Taurus. She shares her birthday with iconic singer Barbra Streisand.
