Joining Under the Virgo Moon

The question that comes up is whether or not to join a group. The critical Virgo moon will look for reasons not to become a member. For starters, you’ll have to give something up — your time and attention at the very least and possibly something else, too, like money. But if a group unites people in goodness, your sacrifice will be worthwhile.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ve hit a saturation point with something you used to love, follow or make a regular ritual out of. It happens. You’re not in the same place anymore, or maybe the other thing has changed. It’s a good day for moving on.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may have the urge to laugh at the wrong time. Curb it! People take laughter the wrong way under this sky, especially men, who are likely to equate chuckles with disrespect, humiliation and derision.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have something important to impart. Your message will be read, heard or considered only if it is brief and to the point. Otherwise, it will go into the slush pile, either actually or figuratively.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take it slow, and do one thing at a time today. Trying to fit in too much before the sun goes down will be confusing to all involved. Reduce your expectations of the day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s nice to commend or praise someone publicly in person, on social media or through a group email. Of course, this is exactly the wrong way to criticize a person. That should always be done one on one.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your brain will fire at top speed all through the day and night, and you’ll come up with truly inspired ideas. Test your theories another day. Today is for recording them. Go for quantity.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How can you be expected to stay in the moment when most of your life is in the past? You’ll drift often to things you said and did long ago. Just be sure to come back when a loved one needs you to be present.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s happened before: One day you’re enthralled with a person, and later the same person bores you. That’s why you’re more careful now about bonding with people. You need to be sure first.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you find yourself wanting to complain a lot, ask yourself what it is you need to do, create or obtain for yourself. The goal today is not to expect or ask of others what you can make happen yourself.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Many people you know are content to let things play out and go along in their current rhythm. Not you. You might relax, but you won’t let go completely because you have one eye on the next move.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s been said that paradise is just like this, only way better. Assume that there’s something very good in your current situation, and work to find it instead of planning an escape.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). For baby wolves, fighting with siblings, pouncing, chasing and hunting small prey is preparation for the demands to come. Similarly, you’ll be part of a pack today, and you’ll be made strong through hard play.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 30). Your star quality shines this year. The work situation gets easier because a friend keeps you focused on the path to success. You’ll have good teachers through the end of the year, but draw your own conclusions, because you know what’s best for you. Travel sweeps you into a romantic mood in March and July. Taurus and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 30, 1, 11 and 42

MERCURY RETROGRADE TIP NO. 4: Obey cellphone etiquette.

As it is with all of the rules of etiquette, the etiquette of cellphone use is designed to help us get along, share space and respect one another’s rights. While one person feels that he or she has the right to take a call in a public place, the person standing next to the cellphone talker feels that he or she has a right not to have to listen to a stranger’s loud, one-sided conversation. Such an issue of public and private interest should come up many times during this Mercury transit through territorial Scorpio. Who is right?

When in doubt about whether to take a call or not, it might be helpful to consider the sanctity of personal space. Think of each person as owning a little bubble of space around himself or herself. Of course, anyone who physically breaches a person’s bubble of personal space is breaking the rules, and a reaction is warranted. Sound is the next worst intrusion. Anyone creating intrusive sound is violating the sanctity of personal space, and a reaction is also warranted. “Intrusive sound” includes distracting sound that is unnecessary for others to hear and that unduly commands the attention of others.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Glee” star Matthew Morrison has been in a boy band and headlined on Broadway, has played theater camps and stadiums, and bounces comfortably between the big and small screens, too. For this driven Scorpio with five luminaries in the sign of transformation, the guiding force through his many incarnations has been the sincere desire to entertain people and make them smile.
