With great love comes less need. When you adore being with someone, you might realize that you can enjoy the time together regardless of the environment. Where there is little love, needs amplify. The Leo full moon rules the heart and also creativity. See if you can address the call for “more, more, more” with your heart instead of your wallet.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s an outpouring of emotion around you and you’re likely to get caught up in the theatrics of it. Keep in mind that feelings are never wrong or right. They just are.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You only want your loved ones to be happy and yet that’s something you can’t really control. What you can do is set the scene and be the example you want to see from them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll master the fine art of encouragement. You’ll make loved ones feel at once comforted and challenged. You’ll bring out their best qualities, as well as qualities they didn’t even know they had.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Can you stay home and steer clear of the full moon madness? Well, you could – but where’s the fun in that? Go out and be with the people you live so close to but know nothing about.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The full moon in your sign offers you a glow of glamour that no amount of styling could give. The less you try, the more you wind up winning someone’s fascination.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A special connection is building. Talking too much can break the spell. You could be moved to do a number of other things instead, for instance: cook, dance and laugh.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There were so many celebrations last month that you went into January feeling all partied out. For the first time in weeks you genuinely feel like letting lose and living it up again.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Interesting confessions and declarations will come out in your presence. There are many ways to interpret what is said, but your way will be the most accurate. You might want to keep it to yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can’t influence a realm that you’re not an active participant in. So you’ll mix, mingle and be part of the craziness. This is par for the course, and you’ll have a great deal of fun with it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Artists and photographers know that how you frame a piece can almost as crucial to the overall effect as the piece itself. You’ll keep this in mind as you share information.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The one who loves you may do so with such fervor that you’re not sure you want to be so adored. Try and sneak away for a break to recharge and get perspective.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The world can seem huge and cold, but you take comfort in it anyway because you know that there’s a place where you belong. In moments of uncertainty, you offer this same feeling of belonging to others.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll forge a path in love in the next seven weeks. It’s either a rebirth for an ailing relationship or a fresh page with someone new. In February you’ll give a stellar performance. The reputation you earn turns into money. March brings the financial stability you seek. Family business requires deft handling in June. Virgo and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 1, 11, 18 and 14.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My Gemini boyfriend of three years is threatening to leave me. I have worshiped and adored him through our entire relationship. I’ve spent so much time trying to make him happy, and I can’t figure out where I went wrong. Please, I don’t feel like I can live without him!”
And that is precisely the problem. Your Gemini doesn’t want to believe that his love can’t live without him. That’s frightening. It’s too much pressure and responsibility and it’s not love, it’s dependence. In the course of a great love, there usually comes a time when one person relies heavily on the other. It’s a test of their tie, and if they pass it the relationship often comes out stronger than ever. But it shouldn’t be the norm. There’s something wrong if it’s the norm. You can live without him. You already have, remember? And you will be so proud of yourself if you start again right away. Let the full moon in Leo be the release that allows for your healing. It’s a time to let go of who you were and get in touch with the powers of creation you will need in the weeks to come to build the new, stronger you.
