Wild-Abandon Moon

The Sagittarius full moon eclipse breaks through the limits. Its methods are rather simple: Question everything, even your own thinking, (SET ITAL) especially (END ITAL) your own thinking. To do so is not a mark of madness or weakness, but rather of high intelligence and emotional maturity. Just because we think it doesn’t make it right.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re moving fast and feeling a bit reckless. You could accidentally make someone angry. If this happens, acknowledge that what you did caused bad feelings so you can move past it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Nothing is intrinsically difficult today, but you could make it seem that way if you approach with the wrong attitude. Letting go of your emotional resistance is the hardest part of learning.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be rather tired of gathering information. You want to apply it! You are eager to find out what you can do. This weekend gives you everything you need to get started, including a big push.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are not so focused on your own challenges that you fail to see the challenges of others. Employ your powers of empathy, and you’ll attract loyal helpers to your side.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Changing thought patterns is tricky. Reinforcement from the outside will help. Some environments are built to increase harmony, serenity and health. Go where you feel best.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Those who tell you to believe in yourself are missing the point, which is to get in motion regardless of your thoughts, beliefs, moods or anything else. There’s something you must do, so just do it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The atmosphere may seem wild, hectic and unsupportive of prolonged focus. That’s why it will be helpful to get an excellent start and keep a schedule. Use tools to help you stay on track.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Make a list of what you want to do, have and be. Don’t worry — you won’t be bound to this list. Even if you don’t achieve anything on it, you are still better off for making a list, because it brings awareness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You hate the same ol’, same ol’, so this will come as excellent news: It’s all different for you today. The monotony will be broken in every way, shape and form by this moon.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will be generous with your smiles, with your help and with many other things except perhaps your money. You feel an uncontrolled vibration running through the financial sector, and you’re right to fold up the wallet.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The problem with accepting what you can’t change is that most of the time it’s hard to tell whether you have an influence on things. You’re in just the mood to assume you can change everything and go for it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll spend a fair amount of mental energy dreaming about that which is out of reach. But would having it really be that awesome? Sometimes the thing that is most appealing about something is that we can’t have it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 25). You feel like you can freely say no, which is true freedom. Obligations will be lifted, and the only expectations of you that matter are your own. New business begins in June. Keep your team small. July brings the start of relationships that will last many years. Make room for new family by marriage or birth in November. Scorpio and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 2, 33, 39 and 40.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “It feels like every bit of goodness and pleasure and happiness is all stuffed into this one person, and he doesn’t love me back. I think of him a million times a day. I dream of us together. I drive by his house and go where I think he’ll show up. We’re perfect for each other. Why can’t he see it? He’s an Aries, and I’m a Leo.”

Your passionate fire-sign nature and super-imagination are getting the best of you, Leo. It doesn’t take a scientist to figure out that people in love are not in their right minds, but scientists have proved this time and again. In his book “Love Sick: Love as a Mental Illness,” Dr. Frank Tallis equates the symptoms of being in love with the symptoms of obsessive or depressive disorders. Knowing that you are in an altered state, it’s important that you have extra structure around you to keep you in line. Stick to a routine. Tell friends that you need extra care now, and ask them to check in on you and do things with you. Avoid new stressors. Give yourself the tenderness and care you would need if you were physically sick. You will get through this and begin thinking rationally again.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rumors are flying about a fourth “Austin Powers” movie. The enormously successful franchise is the brainchild of Mike Myers, who created and portrays the international man of mystery, his antagonist, Dr. Evil, and many other characters in this blockbuster goldmine. The dual nature of the Gemini twins gives them a playful approach to identity. They revel in the freedom to be who they want to be.
