Cancer Moon of Intuition

Intuition kicks in on this first full day of the Scorpio sun, featuring the moon also in a water-sign element. These psychic placements deepen our knowledge of human nature and key us into the nuances and behaviors that people use to hide secrets, handle difficult feelings and smooth over personal differences.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Find out what people want before you start giving them things. If you do it the other way around, you’ll have given what’s valuable to you and you will not have solved their problem.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It will be better to say less, especially when you’re broaching a difficult topic. You can always add more words and information later, but you can never take back what you already said.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may feel it is your duty to do something, and yet you may not agree with the thing you must do. In this case, it’s time to change your role because you are no longer suited to it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). One small light can be seen through miles of darkness. You’ll be that light in someone’s dark hour today. Don’t be surprised if this person starts to depend on you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Be careful of how you wield that wonderful sense of humor. When you make your friends laugh, they will add you to their short list of favorite people. Can you handle the popularity?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Acting is not just for movie and stage stars; most people do it all the time. You play a role at work that requires you to bring a different face to the job. The people who know you only in one context don’t know you very well.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will accept some of destiny’s dealings, but not all of them — and that’s good. Progress is made by those who aren’t content to let the whims of fate knock them around.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not like the way things are managed, but you know better than to log a complaint. The surest, fastest way to get things in order is to order them yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The odds are in your favor, but they stop short of guaranteeing your success. Those who don’t act in accordance with their own good luck have less of a chance of success than those who act to conquer their bad luck.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When the world shows its less than beautiful side, you may find it intolerable, but you won’t be discouraged. Instead, you’ll work to build your own beautiful world.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Imagination is not an impediment to logical behavior. Your creativity will serve to enhance a reasonable plan or add an interesting twist to a sensible choice.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Things won’t go completely according to your script. Still, if you take the time to plan out your day, you will be glad in the end because much of what you plot will come to fruition.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 24). It’s your year to turn a mediocre situation into something truly remarkable. Group efforts are favored in November, and together you’ll make the important difference you couldn’t make alone. Regardless of the weather in January, your heart feels like an endless stretch of sunny skies. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 6, 22, 41 and 30.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Do you think my boyfriend, who is a Scorpio born under a Scorpio moon, is cheating on me? I asked him to take the cellphone challenge — where you switch phones with the person you’re in a relationship with — and he wouldn’t do it. He was so offended. He said if I trusted him, I wouldn’t ask to keep his phone for a weekend, and that if I don’t trust him, I should just break up with him. But if he has nothing to hide, what is he so afraid of? Do you think I should break up with him?”

In his defense, Scorpio people are extremely private, and it makes sense that he wouldn’t want you to have his phone even if he isn’t seeing anyone else. On the other hand, if he’s willing to give up the entire relationship for something so trivial as a weekend experiment in technology swapping, perhaps this tie isn’t really worth holding onto.

Your time is extremely valuable, and you have seven billion choices regarding whom to spend it with. This Scorpio sun transit is an excellent time to think about what you want out of your relationships. You deserve to be with someone you can really trust.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Warrior princess Katy Perry is an intuitive Scorpio who made the choice to release her Prism album when the sun neared the place where it was at her birth. Perry, who was born under five psychic Scorpio luminaries, shows her edgy Scorpio side with artistic decisions that graze the taboo and make people think. Another strong influence in her natal chart is passionate Sagittarius.
