By From page A14 | October 12, 2012

The Virgo moon can be a stickler. She wants to know the accuracy of all assertions, stories and general information. She requests factual evidence. You can channel this lunar energy in a helpful direction by questioning your own scene. Uncovering a fallacy and correcting it could greatly and immediately improve your life.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Every once in a while, you start to suspect that being good is seriously overrated. Being a little bit bad might feel liberating. Either way, a playful exuberance runs through everything you do.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Though you will mostly be wrapped up in responsibilities you agreed to take on long ago, you will still find long moments to pay attention to exactly what you want to pay attention to.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone already knows the way things have been done. It’s safe, comfortable and familiar. You’ll come up with a new way. To give your idea the best chance at being accepted, privately work out the bugs before presenting it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The world responds to your youthful heart the way a good parent would, minimizing the reprimands, encouraging you to explore your environment and eliminating undue stress.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Questions about your social circle arise, if only in your head. Do your peers promote your intellectual interests? If not, you’ll feel compelled to find friends with whom you have more in common.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A major theme of the day is that everyone is equal but not the same. You like the methods, beliefs and habits that work for you, but you don’t demand that others adopt the same ones.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Being “in the zone” isn’t just for great moments in sports. You prove this today as you immerse yourself in a project and get in sync with everything around you to astounding effect.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Because you want to connect with someone, you will be flexible about when, where and how to meet them. It’s your willingness to meet the other person where they are that makes the connection possible.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have so much going for you that you could easily intimidate others. It wouldn’t hurt to be more humble than you think is necessary, just to counteract the potential backlash of jealous individuals.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you love another person, your involvement is active. Your beloved will appreciate how you listen, react and generally demonstrate that you want to be an active participant in his or her life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your afternoon will be unusually busy, and it will help to remind yourself often to slow down and tend to what is truly important: your enjoyment of the experiences in your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your social circle is abuzz with options and opportunities. It all happens because you put yourself across in a way that makes others want to be around you.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 12). Though you are clearly serious about what you do, humor eases the way. This month and next, many find your charms irresistible. December brings family additions. Your connection with the natural world, especially animals, will be highlighted in January. There’s movement on the career front in March. Taurus and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 39, 15 and 20.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Though you hope for only good circumstances on a date, adverse conditions such as rain, odd strangers or having to fend for your spot in a crowd will bond you closely with another. TAURUS: You’ll move up in the estimation of someone who’s had an eye on you. GEMINI: You and your love will achieve a shared goal. CANCER: A friendship is changing, and you’ll like how things develop. LEO: It’s romantic to have secrets that only the two of you know. VIRGO: You like to set goals, but you don’t impose your goals on a loved one. LIBRA: Your extrasensory perception will steer you right. SCORPIO: What makes a novel experience even better is having to explain it to someone who doesn’t know what that’s like. SAGITTARIUS: You could come on like gangbusters if you wanted to, but you’ll adjust your personality wattage to fit the situation. CAPRICORN: You send a clear message: You have a serious crush, and everyone knows it. AQUARIUS: Being less formal with someone you like will inspire that person to loosen up a bit.  PISCES: Social occasions come complete with a fun surprise ending.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the Virgo moon reflects the lovely Libran sun, these signs are reminded just how deep their shared affinity goes. These zodiac neighbors may feel like they grew up together regardless of how long they’ve actually known each other. It doesn’t mean they are very much alike, though. And when Virgo and Libra work together, their projects and plans often wind up in a place neither would have predicted.
