The Libra moon of lovers is a precursor to the movement of Venus into Libra later this week. This could culminate in a meeting of eyes across a crowded room or in casual flirtations that grow in fascination in the weeks to come. The Libra moon is also excellent for improved relations with friends and family and a better quality of communication.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ignore that little voice inside, and you will wind up frustrated and bored. But if you listen to your intuition instead, it will lead you to scenarios that will inspire moments of clarity, joy and delight.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your sign mate Jerry Seinfeld said, “There’s no such thing as fun for the whole family.” You’ll avoid the futility of trying to please everyone by pleasing yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Projecting the likely outcome is like a game to you today. You may even feel confident enough in your predictions that you’ll want to make a bet, and a gambling friend will take you up on it, too.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Doing what it takes to compete with the big fish is the order of the day. Strangely, the more ready you are for the challenge the less competitive toward others you feel.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone who speaks with confidence and has plenty of pertinent knowledge to share will enter your scene, although you may learn even more from someone who thinks more and talks less.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s a new kind of learning that’s necessary today. In order to understand how things really are, you must strip away some of the erroneous information you’ve been taught and start over.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be feeling tough today and a bit cheeky, as well. When someone challenges you, you’ll accept and possibly raise the stakes just to make things even more interesting.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s not enough to appreciate those who work hard to help you now; financial compensation will speak louder than words. This isn’t always the case, but today people are focused on the bottom line of their bank accounts.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Enjoying what you have is better than plotting and planning how you’re going to keep it forever. You’re not going to keep it forever. Nothing is permanent. Hopefully this will inspire you to savor the moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s easier to overcome an obstacle in your environment than an obstacle in your head. What’s hard is being able to tell the difference. Keep asking, “Is this real, or is it just me?”
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Some people talk too much when they are nervous; others go the opposite direction and don’t say much. You’ll avoid both extremes as you gravitate toward people who make you feel comfortable and free to be yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You do not need people to be agreeable in order for you to like them. You’re one of those rare individuals who appreciate and even celebrate the differences between people.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll send a new wish from your heart to the stars. This one will require you to grow. You’ll conquer fear by getting busy. Next month, you’ll exchange promises, perhaps in the form of a contract. Health improves with October fitness measures. December sparks your creativity, and you’ll turn it into money in February. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 23, 33, 39 and 2.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Compared to last week, this week brings more room to stretch, a slower pace and a peaceful, easy feeling – though the theatricality of Leo still colors even the calmest moment with splashes of vibrancy and excitement. It’s like seeing the staged version of a peaceful sky, with the lighting aimed at tranquility and saturated hues that add interest and a sense of wonder about what the next scene may bring.
Whom do you want to get close to? Who mirrors you and makes you happy to be in the moment and eager to show your best self? Who makes life better by just being there? That’s the person of focus as the Libra moon opens the stage curtain to sing about the passage of Venus into Libra on Friday. The Libran energy of the moon is like a smooth Justin Timberlake hit of late, dressed up with old-school black-and-white Brat Pack glamour. The music of Sunday will be echoed at the end of the week, picking up tempo and adding a few electric guitars to drive it along. This is the soundtrack of relationships: love, professional, platonic and familiar. It’s celestial music for the mainstream.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Leo Chris Hemsworth took Hollywood by storm as the thermoblasting, lightning-bolt-wielding god Thor in “The Avengers” and is booked solid for Thor and more in the years to come. Hemsworth’s natal sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune are all in fire signs, but his passion is tempered by a strong Libran influence throughout his chart. Libra is about beauty, relationships and getting along.
