The moon in Leo is a showoff, an exaggerator and an occasional liar, but only when those lies make people laugh or keep them in suspense. The trine of Saturn and Neptune offers a warning to the Leo moon: The relationship between creativity and congratulations can be a precarious one. Too much of one sometimes ruins the other.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). As you try to deal exclusively with a current circumstance, someone else is intent on bringing up the past in what appears to be a patently unhelpful way. Conflict resolution will depend on an unemotional approach.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Regarding certain teachings that have been passed to you, you seriously doubt the correctness of your parents and other ancestors. And yet you respect them enough to carry out the tradition in some small way today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Wishing someone else happiness is a kind of gift. That the gift can’t be seen doesn’t lessen its value, especially considering today’s relationship between your guiding planet and Pluto.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll have to work hard at something — i.e., you’ll have to commit, challenge yourself and change in some way. You’re ready for this, and so the work will be pleasure, too.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be in the know in every way you need to be. When the facts aren’t on the tip of your tongue, you’ll have them at your fingertips. Share judiciously with only those who ask.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you can’t say what the meaning of something is, does that make it any less meaningful? You will have a strong feeling and a connection to a physical item. It’s OK to be unsure as to why.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will find it easy to focus on what you want and ignore what you don’t, namely because what you want will be in full bloom in front of you, shiny, enticing and overshadowing all else.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll put your family first, and this will shape your day. There will still be a small amount of time to devote to a project, and you’ll succeed best following a step-by-step plan.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You enjoy studying nature and will find it interesting, beautiful, unnerving and forever insistent that there is always more to be discovered.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Those who believe in the power of serendipity seem to experience a greater number of fateful encounters than others. But even if you don’t believe, today’s instance of kismet is undeniably remarkable.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may feel happy to go along with things the way they are, but a seemingly small incident this afternoon makes it impossible to do so. This shapes the future you in some small way.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You adore another person and want to give everything you have to the relationship. You do not wish to be dependent on the other person for anything, though, not even for love.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 10). You’ll like who enters your world this year, attracted by your remarkable drive. Stay aware. You’ll follow a subtle signal to a major opportunity next month. You fit right in with a fun crowd, and by December, you’ll be leading it. Your investment in education pays you back in May and again in July. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 3, 23, 18 and 50.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “For years I was a driven person. Then I got married, had two children and woke up one day to find that my drive was gone. Now I want to get back into the workforce, but I am not the same person. I don’t know what I want to do, and I don’t feel motivated by anything except the fact that we need the money. I love my family, but for some reason, the loss of my former self is devastating to me these days. What advice do you have for a Capricorn who doesn’t act like one?”

Your ruling planet, Saturn, is in an excellent position to dreamy Neptune until November 2, making this a perfect time to explore. Answer these questions: Who do you envy? It could be someone you know, or even someone famous or dead. Who do you like? Who do you wish you could be more like? What piece of work do you wish you had contributed to the world? As you study and revel in the lives and accomplishments of others, you will get closer to unearthing a passion. Also, know that it’s normal to mourn who you used to be, but don’t dwell there. Someday you’ll mourn the person you are now, too.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The film director Ed Wood Jr. made an unforgettable mark on the film industry even though critics largely regarded his work as a model of bad moviemaking. The Libra’s joyous artistic spirit was alive in his main creative aim: to make people happy, which he did regardless of the resources or talent available to him to do so. So impactful were his efforts, he’s revered in a religion: the Church of Ed Wood.
