New Moon Eve
This is a fine time to set goals regarding nutrition and exercise. The Virgo new moon eve promises to prep us for tomorrow’s bout of good fortune, which will visit the realm of health and vitality. Willpower will be strongest when you support yourself with tweaks to your environment that make healthy choices also the easiest choices.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have an advantage, but you won’t press it. You don’t like to see greed in others, and you despise it in yourself. That’s why you’ll wield just enough power to get what you want and no more.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People will try to tell you who you are because it’s a quirk of human nature to incorrectly assume this kind of knowledge. But they don’t really know. Remember that you are the hero of a story no one else has ever lived.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A series of small actions will add up to something remarkable, but that’s not why you do what you do. You are simply responding to a voice inside that is urging you forward, nudging you toward greatness.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Kindness will be your top priority. Because your nearest and dearest have shown you both their best and their worst, it’s sometimes easiest to be nice to those you don’t know well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s easier to set boundaries and expectations when you’re starting fresh with people than to try to change a current relationship dynamic. The bottom line is that people will treat you the way you let them treat you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Pride is a function of placing a high value on what you’ve done and who you are. Vanity is putting effort into the way you want others to see you. Both will matter to the outcome of today’s business.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can’t rewrite yesterday’s loss, but tomorrow is yours to win if you plan well enough. Your future-vision is clear today. Think about what could go wrong, and address each scenario.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Can a person protect his or her own innocence? Just knowing that there’s something more to know puts a crack in the protective eggshell of the innocent. At least you can still protect another person’s innocence, and so you will.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may not be able to decide what’s best for you until after you’ve made a few mistakes. That’s just what it takes to get to know yourself. The better you know yourself the more often you’ll get it right the first time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some suggest that there are only two choices: to do it the way it’s been done, or to revolt. You’ll find a third choice, though, and it’s the best one: Do it the way it’s been done, but with a twist.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Nobody should live in a vacuum, nor should they live without a vacuum. Being aware of the whole picture will be just as important today as cleaning the small picture of your own home.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Most people don’t listen. So if you listen very well, you’ll find that you learn enough to stand out in a very positive way with the ones you’ve heard and understood.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 4). You’ll play a key role in someone’s happiness over the next six weeks. Your handling of confidential matters earns you trust and money. You’ll apply your maturity and experience to win a prize in October. November and May bring your best financial opportunities. A legal arrangement is finalized in June. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 49, 38, 6 and 20.
TODAY’S NUMEROLOGY: Today’s numerology can be found by adding up each number in today’s date: 0+9+0+4+2+0+1+3 = 19. Then add the 1+9 for a result of 10. Lastly, 1+0 results in a final outcome of 1.
“One” days are fueled by beginner’s luck. The beginner has no knowledge of the rules and limitations and is therefore free to win with approaches that the expert wouldn’t think of. The new arrangements life presents us with on “one” days make it easy to think like a beginner or, more precisely, not to think too much but to process information more viscerally.
_But what if your “one” day doesn’t seem to be presenting anything new to you and in fact seems very much like the usual routine? You will be luckier if you still approach it from the mindset of a beginner. That is to say, if you don’t care whether you win or lose or do things the so-called “right” way, it will take some of the pressure off of you to perform well and will increase your chance of happening onto some capricious good fortune.
If you were born on a “one” day, you are luckiest when you take initiative, react quickly and trust your instincts.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: According to one Vogue magazine cover, the world is ruled by Beyonce Knowles. That may sound like a lot of pressure for one person, but Knowles may be cut out for the role with her sun in hardworking Virgo and ambitious Mars in entertaining and royal Leo. But the prevalent energy in her natal chart is Libra, signifying that her greatest strength is in working cooperatively with others.
