The emotionally attuned water-sign energy swirls at deeper levels as the moon explores a fresh part of the sky. Those who already feel they have a strong psychic gift will be impressed with what this Scorpio moon of second sight brings out. Vivid dreams and visions and a strong sense of the unknown add a mystical element now.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You love people who can tell you something you don’t know, bring you a new vision of the world and make you curious. Your friends do that, and so will the person you meet today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll get in sync with nature, most likely by taking advantage of the weather. If it’s sunny, you’ll let the sunshine kiss and heal you. If it’s rainy, you’ll let it wash your soul clean.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One of your formerly quiet ambitions starts making some noise. How can you make this happen? New resources are available, so even if you did research before, do it again. There is a way now.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel drawn to get to know new people. The approach is always the hardest part because you never know what response you’re going to get. Mostly you’ll be admired for making the first move.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re a sleuth today. Also, you’ll be able to gather up enough evidence to prove whatever point you’d like to make. So the trick is in staying open-minded enough not to come to an early conclusion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What’s actually occurring in your mind has nothing to do with what someone believes is going on in there. You prefer to keep your thoughts private, and others will respect this.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). That boastful someone is just feeling insecure and trying too hard to fit in. Your compassionate response will include giving off the energy of acceptance and redirecting the conversation to better topics.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It may feel like everyday life is a kind of grid, and you’d like to do some diagonal or loopy moves just to knock yourself off of the rigid pattern. Go for it!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You trust yourself to react appropriately – not perfectly, but appropriately. That’s real confidence, and it’s what attracts someone special to you tonight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A reasonable and moderate style will serve you well, especially in matters of finance. Even if you have a hot hunch, move slowly. This is a day for cautious dealings.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Being one of the group will be more fun than standing out on your own. The joy of teamwork will trump any gains you might have obtained with an individual win.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you knew exactly what you were going to see, say and do, it wouldn’t be an adventure. If you make a mistake, you’ll also make up for it, so don’t let anything get in the way.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re important to many people; however, you don’t want the extra attention this brings. You do your work for reasons that are personal and private to you, and the world’s opinion matters little. Success and social fun will be especially newsworthy in September and December. A lifestyle makeover happens in January. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 6, 28, 13 and 11.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “What is an opposition?”
The second most powerful astrological aspect (after the conjunction) is the opposition. Planets are in opposition when they are 180 mathematical degrees apart from each other in an astrological chart. Think of two children on a seesaw at the park. They’re as far apart from each other as they can possibly be, and yet they share a common center. Planets in opposition have contradictory agendas, and yet there is still the possibility of finding balance. We on Earth may experience conflict and confusing push-pull feelings during oppositions. Opposites do attract, though sometimes one needs to call in a mediator to settle disputes! This summer, for example, Uranus and Saturn are due for a rare opposition. Saturn likes things to be safe and predictable, while Uranus is fond of sudden surprises. Saturn prefers old, reliable methods, whereas Uranus likes to be on the cutting edge of innovation. Needless to say, when these two giants duke it out for supremacy, we on Earth can expect a battle of wills. Keep your cool during an argument by finding common ground and being flexible. After all, you may be on opposite sides of the seesaw, but without each other, you’ll go nowhere.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Tomorrow Jaden Smith turns 16, but instead of playing it sweet, he’ll likely be gearing up for the demanding fight sequences to be filmed in the upcoming “Karate Kid 2.” This movie star, rapper and dancer was born under a Cancer sun, the sun of mothers, and a Capricorn moon, the moon of fathers. His Mercury in Leo makes for a naturally entertaining communication style.
