Gemini Moon Wants Information

People fear what they don’t understand — understanding more equals fearing less. The problem occurs when bad people use their intelligence to gain power. They make others feel needlessly afraid by keeping them in a misinformed or uninformed state. The Gemini moon encourages open conversation to prevent such evil from spreading.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes opposition comes from across the globe, and sometimes you are nose-to-nose with it. Today’s opposition is but a step from you. If you change direction for a moment, you’ll be right in line with it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Because you love yourself, you’ll do the things that are good for you and be a role model for others. Everything falls in line from there. So dare to love yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Visualization works, especially with the brilliant intellectual vibration you’re buzzing along today. You’ll mentally revel in the sparkling details then hop to your feet and actually do something about these dreams.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There will be moments to remind you of something you’ve been missing from relationships — something you didn’t even realize you needed or wanted, but your feelings will tell you otherwise.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The things you think you will need are much different from the things you will actually need. It may feel as though you’ve been packing all wrong for this journey called life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you catch a tiger by the tail, will it eat you?  Or will it see you as more of an annoyance than a threat and merely snarl to scare you off? Today, much depends on the degree of risk you’re willing to take.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Many who have achieved in the highest ranks can’t say they are happy — something to consider when you’re choosing what to want. Striving won’t bring profit. To be content with where you are is the greatest satisfaction there is.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The day requires you to be both decisive and committed. As Homer said in the Odyssey: “The minds of the everlasting gods are not changed suddenly.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be in charge of leading people and teaching them, but really you will just be helping them find something that was already inside themselves.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Communication devices will be used to help us get around, meet and connect. Bonus: They can also be used to gather a multitude of needless details from distant places and bring them to clutter up the place where we are.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s time to check in with your various relationships. You’ll be setting things right in the social balance. You’ll pass on a favor or return it. You’ll issue invites where due or overdue.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have more kindred spirits in the world than you would have thought. Proof of this will be in the eyes of someone you meet today. There will be a glimmer of recognition upon first meeting.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 2). You have a special gift for knowing what people need and want and will use this to make both friends and money. You’ll come out of September with an entirely updated identity. November is your chance at a prize you’ve long had your eye on. January and February are the most romantic. Capricorn and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 38, 2, 13, 40 and 22.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: One relationship is taking up too much focus. Consider spreading your attention so as not to create a dependency. TAURUS: You’re still trying to figure out another person’s quirks. GEMINI: It may seem that you are acting for love, but you’re just doing the same thing you would do for yourself anyway. CANCER: Your smile renders someone truly helpless. Wield this power gently. LEO: People will do more for you than you may want them to. Make your boundaries clear. VIRGO: A casual approach depends on timing. If you wait too long to talk to someone, it almost always sets the stage for something awkward. LIBRA: You’ll be outgoing even when you don’t feel like it and quickly get into the social mood that others find so attractive. SCORPIO: You admire how easy it is for your friend to talk with people and connect — imitation is the most sincere form of flattery! SAGITTARIUS: Make sure that you’re taking care of your own needs. There’s nothing to be gained from self-neglect. CAPRICORN: Lively, interesting conversations don’t have to go deep — go wide instead. AQUARIUS: Someone is uncertain of your feelings and that is a good place to keep things for a while. PISCES: Follow your inklings because what you think is true will turn out to be true.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Cancer moon and Leo sun give special zing to relationships between these two signs over the weekend. Both love to connect with the childlike energies of creativity. Leo tends to direct playfulness outwardly by putting on an informal show for Cancer, telling stories or crafting other delights. Cancer, the sign of mothers, takes the energy in a nurturing direction, providing comfort and kindness to Leo.
