Full Moon After-Party

Yesterday's Pisces full moon was artistically enlightening, spiritually opening and, for some, emotionally messy. Today we assimilate and organize these intangibles. Organizing invisible things isn't easy work. At least Venus and Neptune are planning to assist in such a way as to help us believe firmly in what we see with our mind's eye.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Communication will get tricky, but with some sidestepping, you should be able to come out of it with truly useful information. Keep it brief and stay focused on the other person.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Tune up your internal guidance system because success will depend on clearly differentiating what feels good and right from what doesn't. This has nothing to do with the opinions of others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your ideas will tend toward a grand scale, and the execution will be time consuming. Luckily you'll attract helpers. Tonight's events will pique your interest in the strange and supernatural.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Experience only teaches those willing to pay attention and apply the lessons. That's why you'll spend most of the day quietly observing, trying to take it all in so you can later devise a strategy.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Why do people keep telling you who you are? Don't let them do that. This is a good day to soundly reject any identifiers you didn't come up with yourself. Declare yourself anew.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The Zen master suggests that nothing exists without the seed of its opposite inside of it. Go carefully and gently, because whatever behavior you're raging against you're also doing in some way.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's not your fault that you crave instant gratification, but it is your challenge. Making healthy choices will depend on first making a plan -- something simple and doable.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It may just be dawning on you, the thing you missed out on so long ago. You didn't even know you needed it. Now you see the void. Noticing is the first step to filling it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You haven't met your new friend yet, the one who is going to help you change your game. Get out and shake some hands. The magic begins with a casual greeting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Projects get complicated, causing you to reassess your level of commitment. Nothing gets done if you're half-in or half-out. Your luck, especially your financial luck, will improve when you decide one way or another.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Aim your competitive instincts at dead people. Whether you're trying to be a better athlete, artist or overall person, the greats throughout history will inspire you to outdo your previous best score.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Going into autopilot mode will help you conserve energy. Unfortunately, you can only turn on this part of your guidance system to get to destinations you've already visited.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 9). You'll shine who you are on the inside outward, and it will feel fantastic to have that congruence. Success isn't an overnight thing, but it is a night-after-night thing, and by November you'll take home a big prize. Fun relationships blossom in the new year, and you will take two memorable vacations with friends. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 48, 25 and 1.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I was trying to learn more about this Scorpio I'm dating, and so I asked him some questions that I found on a website about things to ask before marriage. Not that I want to marry him, but I just don't know much about him. Also, sometimes the conversation goes dead on the date, and I'm trying to pick it back up with a good question. Anyway, he won't answer some of the questions, and I'm wondering whether that's a bad sign. What do you think?"

The whole energy of this feels forced. You may be scaring the conversation right out of him. Scorpios are naturally guarded anyway. They cherish their privacy and enjoy taking cover in a fog of mystery. He will open up when he's good and ready, and only on the topics he feels like sharing at the moment. The good news for you is that you will learn much about him by being present with him in that moment and remaining playful, light and relaxed.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Virgo Michelle Williams fits completely comfortably into iconic roles like Marilyn Monroe and Glinda the Good Witch. Born when the sun, the moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn were all in Virgo, the sign of health, nurturing and self-discipline, her natal chart has longevity written all over it. This is an astrological chart that suggests an evergreen quality to image, career and life.
