Virgo Moon Gets Back To Work

With the number of hours we’ve spent in 2013 still in the double digits, the Virgo moon guides the fresh year in practical action that resonates well with the Capricorn sun. Mercury in Capricorn also offers a cosmic tip: Watch out for reserved types. People who seem emotionally low-key are often highly driven and passionately motivated.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You feel driven and tenacious now, but can you keep this up in the days, weeks and months to come? Make a long-term plan that includes checkpoints. Accountability will be key.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In a sense, you’re on a never-ending journey, and therefore you cannot expect to arrive anytime soon — or anytime at all, really. This should help you relax and enjoy yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you want to know what a big-time success looks like, look in the mirror. You are capable of greatness. Whatever strides you make today are just the beginning. Keep track of them. You’ll want to remember them later.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). While trying to stick to the moral high road, distracting thoughts could have you wondering what exactly is in it for you? You are, after all, a human being and not a saint.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your actions will reflect your basic belief that everyone is on the same level. You see those who try to separate people into classes as sadly misguided, and you’re right.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t be a good soldier in the army of life. If you’re not headed where you want to go, stop marching and step out of line. Expect trial and error. Don’t settle for taking orders from an invisible leader.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your efforts to create rapport may not seem to be working, but they really are. The connection will be made. Note that it’s much easier to have an influence over people who like you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People always want what they can’t have. You know this, and you intuitively feel compelled to create a sense of scarcity around what you have to offer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd. “Everyone is doing it” is an idea that many influencers use to add numbers to their group. You’ll use this principle in some way today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you find yourself thinking you don’t have control over a situation, look for all the ways in which you do have control. There is always something to be done.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Rejection is no fun, and most people will do anything to avoid it. Yet, the only way to make exciting things happen in your life is to risk rejection. So you’ll gladly take the risk today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone has something to join and follow these days, but finding the truly worthy cause is still a challenge. Research will be necessary in order to see past the superficial to the actual work being done.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 2). You don’t even have to think about all the kind words you say. They naturally flow from your compassionate heart, connecting and endearing you to the people who make your life wonderful this year. The opportunities you attract with your compassion will move you to new places. You’ll earn big from a July sale. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 2, 9, 3 and 17.

GREEN RESOLUTION CHALLENGE PART TWO: Join the Green Revolution by making a green resolution. What can you do this year to save the planet? I challenge you to pick a green resolution and keep it all year. What’s the resolution earth signs TAURUS, VIRGO and CAPRICORN are most likely to keep all year? The kinship these signs feel with the other living things on this planet may compel earth signs to start bringing their own bags to the store. The one trillion disposable plastic bags used worldwide every year are over-filling landfills and killing animals, especially in the oceans. It’s a truly needless waste considering how easy it is to bring your own reusable bags. Air signs GEMINI, LIBRA and AQUARIUS will feel motivated to do their part to keep emissions low by getting regular car tune-ups, making fewer trips and carpooling whenever possible. Some will go so far as to use more public transportation or purchase electric or hybrid cars. Since there are many ways to reduce carbon emissions, these air signs would benefit from one simple resolution: use less oil daily. Note that recycling also helps in this effort, as the oil used in creating plastic containers is considerable.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Gorgeous Capricorn actress Kate Bosworth will appear with an all-star cast in the multi-storied comedy “Movie 43.” A star since age 14, Bosworth has learned to navigate the celebrity world, keep it separate from her personal life and simplify that balance. Her secret: “I keep everything private private.” Spoken like someone born with Saturn in Scorpio!
