The Cancer moon invites us to get cozy and enjoy the tailpiece of the Sagittarius solar journey from the comfort of home. Tomorrow’s Leo moon brings a different opinion on the matter, but for today it’s the domestic environment that holds just the right atmosphere to assess our current position and get ready for the next phase.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe you’d rather not console people today or be the designated pep talker, but if it goes that way, don’t fight it. However ill-equipped you may feel to do these things, you’re actually the one best suited to the job.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Inquiring about feelings is dicey – you may be pushing further than the other person wants to go. People put their emotions into words when they are ready. In the meantime, physical signals will inform you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Marketers know that people don’t really buy products; they buy results and the feelings that go along with those outcomes. You can save yourself a few bucks today by deciding to feel a certain way without paying for it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll enjoy the company of like minds. They may not share your value system exactly, but they’re close enough that you can see the same things as funny, awesome, pathetic and sad.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may be tempted to “give away the farm,” because, let’s face it, farms are a lot of work. Resist the urge. You should have controlling interest in what you started and cultivated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know a waste of time when you see one – or do you? Sometimes time-wasters go disguised as interesting discussions that, once joined, lead absolutely nowhere.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as companies run promotional offers to stir up interest, you’ll ratchet up your appeal by figuring out the best and most desirable things you have to offer and letting people know.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Betrayal is the breaking of a contract of sorts. There’s gray area in this regard, because many contracts that are unspoken or assumed are not mutual. Avoid betrayal by being clear about the rules.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are passionate about the things that are closest to your heart. The only person who can lead you is one who knows how to connect that passion to the work before you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You think of the same person when you first wake up and when you fall asleep tonight. This is more than a habit of mind. It’s where your heart is, too.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Draw a hard line between business and personal relationships. You may be in business with a loved one, and in that case, you have two separate relationships, and the line between them should be distinct.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may delegate certain responsibilities, but make sure you know exactly how all of the functions are performed first. Also, you should be the one to maintain key business relationships.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll feel so marvelous when working that being paid seems a mere bonus compared to other benefits. Physical improvements boost your image in January. Loved ones will support your efforts and get out of your way when you don’t need them. You’ll travel to fix something in March. April brings a windfall. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 30, 4, 22 and 14.
HOLIDAY STRESS RELIEVERS: So many feel spent and blue in December. What can you do to counteract holiday stress?
SAGITTARIUS: For Sagittarius, there is nothing more stressful than feeling trapped. With crowds and obligations in abundance this time of year, there are many opportunities for this stressful condition to settle in. Whether it’s a parking lot traffic jam or a must-attend office party, Sagittarius won’t be able to relax if he or she has the sense that there’s no way out. So the key to reducing stress and increasing enjoyment is to build more options into life or see the ones that exist more clearly.
When tensions are mounting, positive self-talk that has freedom as a central theme will put Sagittarius at ease. Try on these mantras for size!
I choose my reactions to life, and I have an endless array of choices.
Tense moments, however long they may seem, will always pass.
With each breath I’m able to see more options available to me.
I always have choices.
I’m creative, and so I can see more than the obvious options.
I can always find a way to make the most of whatever is happening now.
I control what I can and let go of the rest.
