Full Cancer Moon
There’s no place like home under the full Cancer moon. Where do you feel safe enough to relax and be totally yourself? Interactions will resonate with maternal dynamics, having the feeling of a reunion of mother and child. For some, it’s a cathartic moon and the emotions run freely. Offer and accept comfort.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Watch out. When you say “I am,” whatever follows is a declaration with staying power. Perhaps the safest route is not to claim anything at all. Let them figure it out for themselves.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As it is with moving vehicles, the faster you’re going the longer it’s going to take to stop. The day will be a bit of a blur. Long, languorous evening hours will help you unwind from the madness.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Only time can tell whether an unwelcome development will be extremely lucky for you in the end. You have every reason to stay upbeat and hopeful for the best possible outcome.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have a talent for creating illusions that will enhance your image. Everybody does this to some degree, but you openly admit it. That’s what makes you relatable. People drop their pretenses around you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re a problem-solving machine today. Some problems are solved through bold, swift action and others through sensitivity and awareness. You can change your style on a dime.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is normal to encounter inner resistance when taking on a job that requires a great deal of willpower. Distractions seem shinier. Goals go soft. You feel tired. Fight on. This is how you develop muscle tone.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Since friends have some mighty strange ideas about what you need to do to stay healthy, wealthy and wise. The best rule to follow is: Don’t listen to friends. Stick with the professionals.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re moving fast and handling what’s in front of you. To the innocent bystander, you look like a person making it up in the moment. What they don’t know is that it’s all part of your grand plan.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Safe talk leads nowhere. Dangerous talk also leads nowhere, as it causes people to feel defensive and closed. The best conversations will combine the tame with the wild unpredictably.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You like those last minutes of a project, right before the bell rings. The quickening of your pulse makes you do your best work. When it all comes down to the wire, you’ll be in excellent form.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t have to have an answer for everyone the moment they ask something of you. Making them wait is an excellent strategy. Your typical thoughtfulness plays well in this strategy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes it can be challenging to maintain enthusiasm for your daily responsibilities and routines, but today a funny new force in your life will shed some sunshine on it.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 15). You’ll circulate in a high-powered group. In the first quarter of the year, you could participate in a battle of sorts, but you likely will show your strength by avoiding fighting. May brings a big decision and the glorious fallout: Your life is your creation. In August, the focus is on home and the people who make it joyful. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 3, 22, 40 and 16.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Capricorn, and I just found out that my boyfriend has led a completely different life from the one I thought we had together. His habits, friends and love life are not what I thought. I feel like I don’t even know the person I’ve been living with for the past year. To make things worse, he doesn’t want to move out. He says he’s started moving, but I don’t see the evidence of this. Also, just breaking up with him is not enough. He’s used our money and broken my trust. I want revenge. I feel like throwing the rest of his stuff in the dump.”
Get justice, not vengeance. Justice will restore the balance. Vengeance will tip the scale in the opposite direction, creating the same unwanted negativity in a different place. If you own your place, you may have to legally evict your boyfriend, and you can find out how to do this by investigating the eviction laws of your state of residence. If you don’t own your place, consider being the one to move. Capricorns like you are most comfortable in situations they can control. Your own relocation will be much easier to control than his.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rapper Pitbull fashioned his stage name after a breed of dog with a bite that some say locks on and won’t shake loose. Now at the top of his game, the rapper is as tenacious as ever. This Latin Grammy winner was born when the sun and Venus were in Capricorn, and so his business sense is innate. His moon in Taurus promises uncompromising drive and enduring stamina.
