Aquarius Moon Lightens the Day

Inner chaos creates outer chaos, and vice versa. But which comes first? The good news today is that it doesn't matter, because whether you bring calm to your inner or outer environment, you'll make headway with both. The Aquarius moon works in a friendly way to lighten the mood and add smart and breezy solutions to the mix.

ARIES(March 21-April 19). You will be a better manager, parent and supportive friend when you praise the efforts of others rather than praising their talent. No one can control what they are born with, only how hard they try.

TAURUS(April 20-May 20). No matter how amazing your vocal cords may be (and as the sign that rules the throat, they may be very amazing), without air they cannot sing. You'll celebrate the elements that allow you to do what you do.

GEMINI(May 21-June 21). You are perceptive and can gather quite a lot from a person's aesthetic qualities. However, learning a person's values takes time. Go slow. Being too quick to make commitments now is a mistake.

CANCER(June 22-July 22). Instead of explaining or declaring yourself, tell a story. Stories can sometimes take us to a deeper, more fundamental understanding than could be arrived at by the unvarnished truth.


LEO(July 23-Aug. 22). Independence is, for you, a requirement. As much as you appreciate the opportunities provided to you by someone else's hard work, you won't be satisfied until you absolutely strike out on your own.

VIRGO(Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Location is everything in business, and today it's everything in your personal life, too. You'll go where you are likely to meet interesting people who appreciate the same kinds of things that you do.

LIBRA(Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The theme of the day: discovering latent abilities. If you can spot talent and recognize the finer details of what makes something great, this is a sign that you may have a similar talent.

SCORPIO(Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may negotiate an excellent deal, but that doesn't mean both parties will benefit from the arrangement. Look beyond the deal, and try to project yourself into the future reality of it.

SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don't allow yourself too much time for making decisions. If you let it drag on forever, the passion and interest will die out before you ever get to the final answer.

CAPRICORN(Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When friends and family fight, everyone suffers. You want to help everyone get along, but there are some things you should just stay out of. Today your involvement may be counterproductive.

AQUARIUS(Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Kidding is a way of showing you care -- but it's a risky way. What you think is good-humored attention doesn't always come across like that. Just to be safe, show your affection more directly today.

PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20). You'll find yourself working hard to own a symbol of success. Realize that the symbol itself isn't the success. But just because it's not real doesn't make it less powerful.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(Sept. 15). There's much that is working in your life, and you will focus there, repeating only the helpful patterns and leaving behind any habit that would diminish or harm you. Family bonds over October fun. November positively affects your love life. January connects you with the funds to make a project fly. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 33, 28 and 42

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Are you an imaginative person? If so, you could get on a hot streak this week. Be sure to write down your imaginings. Explore the serious ones with a light heart, and take the silly ones quite seriously.

If you don't normally think of yourself as a creative person, this week will provide you with the impulse to try thinking differently. Creativity is not a quality reserved for a select few humans; it's part of the genetic makeup of our entire species. All you have to do is say "yes" to it. Note that creativity isn't limited to the arts. Creativity may come by the way of practical problem-solving, strategy in business or games, conversation, math, science, engineering and myriad other focuses. The Pisces full moon on September 19th asks: In what ways are you creative?

On Saturday, the dwarf planet known as Pluto goes direct in the realm of Aries. It will be easier to see the connections between the personal and the global and understand our relevance in the scheme of things in the weeks to come.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Now that Prince Harry is also Uncle Harry to the infant Prince George, will his life view change? Prince Harry may not be ready to settle into his own family situation, but he'll continue to display his dutiful side in his work as an ambassador and as an officer in the British military. The grounded Virgo influences in the prince's natal chart are sometimes overrun by the passionate fire-sign influences.
