Full Moon Eve

Tomorrow’s full Aries moon and eclipse promise to release some pent-up energy, and with a little planning, you can use that to your advantage. Somewhere in your life is a limit that needs lifting or a wall you’d like to tear down so that you can have more freedom to do as you wish. Come up with a plan to knock away at that limitation tomorrow.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes you take the “que sera sera” route and resign yourself to a “what will be will be” attitude — not today. What will be is what you decide to make happen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Keep your talk small and happy, and avoid getting overly involved. It’s better to show your support and then carry on with your business than to stick around and risk being dragged into a drama.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Avoid doing anything to impress that person you admire. This person already finds you interesting and attractive, so doing too much will only ruin the effect.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s strange how working on a problem sometimes makes it worse. Don’t stress yourself. Focus on what’s going well, and leave the problem alone for a while. It could disappear of neglect.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll crack a code of sorts. This likely has to do with a relationship. You’ll figure out what you can give another person in order to get what you need from him or her.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s an exciting change in your near future. It’s still unclear how all the parts have to move in order to make this happen, but one thing is clear: Move they will!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are getting comfortable with your imperfections, so comfortable that you refuse to see them as imperfect at all. Rather, they are just intriguing quirks that cooperate to make up the whole of who you are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ve done an excellent job, and yet you’re not getting the recognition you should be getting. If you’re very sly, you can bring attention to your work without making it look like you are blowing your own horn.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You behave differently around certain people. It’s as though you have to tap dance around these people to keep them entertained. Seek the company of people you can relax around.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The action that feels right to you is right for others, too. The good will you spread quite by accident will bring a giver’s high that inspires your future and more intentional generosity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you are to compete with the best and brightest in your realm, you’re going to need better tools. This is the right time to invest in yourself and in your game.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t want to establish a solid emotional commitment only to discover a few days from now that you’ve changed your mind. That’s why it’s important now to take things slowly.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 17). You are swimming in an abundance of easygoing energy for the next five weeks. If you need help, it’s offered. People you encounter have goals that fall right in line with your own. December brings a mutually beneficial business arrangement. January whisks you into someone else’s world. March brings a payoff. Leo and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 1, 3 and 7.

TURN THE DOWNSIDE OF YOUR SIGN INTO AN ASSET: Each sign has strengths and weaknesses, and often they are the very same quality. LEO’S drive to entertain people can lead to grandiose plans that never quite pan out. The cat is also ambitious and proud, two qualities that often go right before “the fall.” But if no one tried to flesh out a grandiose vision, what a bleak world it would be! Also, the failings of Leos’ attempts to entertain people are often even more entertaining than if they had succeeded with their original plan. For the cat, the main way to succeed is not to take any of it too seriously.

VIRGOS are famous for their perfectionism. They focus on the details and make every effort to get them right. If they are not careful, they can spend way too much time on very small efforts that the world will not appreciate while missing out on the opportunity to make any significant impact with their work. For Virgo, an assessment of what will matter and what won’t is crucial. Each project should be summed up before the very first move is made. Careful planning helps Virgo apply detail-oriented energy where it will be most effective.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: It’s been more than a decade since Eminem appeared to critical acclaim as a troubled young rapper in “8 Mile.” Now Hollywood is abuzz with rumors about his return to the big screen in a leading film role. Eminem has a natal chart as varied as his diverse persona, with earth, air and water energies all well represented. His natal Aquarius moon suggests that his mind is always whirring.
