Daring Virgo Moon
This is a particularly graceful Virgo moon, flitting through the cosmic landscape, forming auspicious angles, tossing out flirtatious intentions and agreeing with several planets at the party while daring to defy the host, the Gemini sun. An afternoon squared aspect to the sun may very well bring about the most interesting part of the day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be passing out praise. Note that it will be most helpful to praise a person for good efforts, not natural abilities. This will grow the number of efforts being made.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It will be apparent how the town you are from has influenced you. You’ll notice that you’re doing something you learned when very young. Others might not understand it, but it’s part of the culture you were raised in.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is no “normal” today; there’s only the way you’re doing it. If it works your way, it’s good. You’ll be content for as long as you can remain unconcerned about what the others think.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone can’t be thinking alike. If this seems to be the case, then someone is either not giving or not having a true opinion. Surprise and test people to make sure they are awake.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People who bring their body to one place but wish they were somewhere else have diminished power and charisma. Wherever you go, go with your whole being.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll get people talking to one another. The topic is less important than the result: the group becomes energized. You can accomplish remarkable things within an energized group!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just thinking about what you don’t want to do is an annoyance and an energy drain. That’s why you really can’t afford to say “yes” if you know it’s something that doesn’t thrill you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Regulating your personal energy will be more of a challenge now, as life keeps throwing you different obstacles, opportunities and sources of fresh excitement.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you get the urge to impress someone, pay attention to that urge, but don’t heed it. You’re already enough without doing anything extra. Less will be more.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some are fast and loose with the word “genius,” and others reserve it for only the most outstanding and rare intellectual achievements. There will be a benefit to giving generous but not overly generous praise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The first rule of dating is the same as the first rule of entertainment, conversation and perhaps even life: Don’t be boring. Your interesting choices will dazzle across the board.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Cost and product comparisons will be a necessary part of business, but they are totally unnecessary (and ill-advised) in regard to your personal life. Thought: No one’s life is as fabulous as the Facebook page makes it seem.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 5). Strong and energetic, you’ll set your sights on a goal you wouldn’t have aimed for last year. You’ll make the most of a glamorous opportunity in July. Your circle of friends enlarges as you follow unusual interests. You need better training, so invest in it in September and reap the financial rewards soon after. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 14, 26, 2 and 45.
PRE-RETROGRADE CLEANUP: There’s much to accomplish before the Mercury retrograde at the end of the week. One small task done well starts a wave of productivity. What’s your lucky task?
SCORPIO: Never content to take things at face value, you are the sign of the underlying functionality of life. The skeleton, if you will. The sign of “What came first?” and “How did that happen?” That’s why sometimes cleaning and clearing don’t seem to be enough. You want better systems. You want to prevent the mess to begin with.
For instance, do you have a system for dealing with what comes into your house every time you walk in the door? Coats, keys, mail, flyers, shopping items — if they are handled straight away, your home maintains the feeling that all is manageable. This is accomplished with a designated “I’m home” area. This is where the key hook lives, the coats are hung and the mail can be immediately sorted and dealt with. If you don’t have an “I’m home” area or are not convinced that your “I’m home” area is functional or beautiful enough, this is the time to change that.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Very few people have made the transition from teen pop star to respected actor, but Mark Wahlberg not only successfully braved that crossing; he also upped the ante by becoming a respected producer, as well. This Gemini was born under a tenacious Mercury and Venus in Taurus, and he has a number of credits coming out in the next year, including the much anticipated “Entourage” movie.
