Productive Virgo Moon
Under the performance-oriented Leo sun, there are those who like to seem busy, look successful and act happy. Then the Virgo moon comes along to see through the ruse and suggest that the best way to appear busy, successful and happy is to actually be those things. Today and tomorrow will be the most productive days of the week.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ask yourself: What is my motivation again? Flying without a motor isn’t flying at all; it’s gliding, and it will only take you as far as the wind and gravity allow. But with the right engine (motivation), you can go anywhere.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Money won’t solve the problem even if the problem happens to be financial. Think bigger. Go to the origin. How did this come about? There’s an idea that will do what money cannot.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No one likes to see a mismatched game. If one team is so superior to the other that there is no contest, it’s not fun for the players on either team, and the spectators suffer, too. Consider carefully which games are worth playing.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The omens would suggest that “love is the answer,” and it’s hard to argue with that one. Ask yourself what the situation would look like if you brought 10 percent more love to it. Twenty percent? A hundred percent?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You need someone to act in a way that they are not. How will you get them to do it? Tactics must be employed. If you’re game, then try three by lunchtime. Where there’s a will there’s a way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). To avoid getting lost in the details, look at the overall scope of life. What will matter in a year? Five years? And is it the same thing that matters right now?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What you say and what you mean may be two different things, but that’s natural. It’s actually stranger, and probably ruder as well, to say exactly what you mean.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not be attuned to what others are sensing from you, but you know what you’re getting from them. Your sixth sense will be strongly focused on the outside world, and you’ll pick out the helpful influences.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The journey from front door to mailbox may be lovely, but your sights are set on much more exotic travels. First, you’ll go there in your research, then in mind and finally in body.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are those around you who do the same thing time and again. You prefer to shake it up, try new things and risk failure at least three times a day.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You wonder whether an attractive solution is too good to be true, but you can safely reserve skepticism for another day. Sometimes things look good because they are good.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you fight with yourself, be fair! Your intimate knowledge of what would hurt the most is potentially hazardous. There’s a way to quell your lower instincts without being too mean.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 29). One good decision in the next three weeks will bring more love into your world. Then in August, you’ll do humble work for the sake of gaining experience, and you’ll wind up making extra money in September and October. Your tenacity will close a deal at the end of the year, and this sets you up for a successful 2015. Taurus and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 31, 22, 38, 18 and 40.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “We’ve been together for four years. I’m 21, and he’s 22. He wants to get married, and I don’t. He’s a Capricorn, and I’m a Leo. He argues that if we’re not getting married, what are we doing? He wants the relationship to progress. I don’t really know what we’re doing. I love him, but I just don’t want to get married. We don’t live together. I have a 32-year-old sister who tells me I am crazy because she would love to be married and believes she’ll be single forever. I don’t see what the big deal about that would be. Why does everyone want to get married?”
Capricorns often feel uncomfortable in an environment of too many unknowns. Those born to the sign of the seagoat are traditionalists at heart. They prefer clear definitions for their relationships. They like to know the timeframe of a relationship’s journey. They don’t like to play things by ear.
Consider that this relationship may have run its course, not because you don’t love each other, but because you want very different things. Your sign rules the heart. Follow yours — it’s calling you to experience more of the world, not to be pressured into an early marriage.
