The Cancer moon suggests taking a look around your home environment and giving thanks for the many blessings that spring from that place. They won’t be easy to see under this water-sign moon — much in the way that water can be taken for granted by fish — but try! You’ll be happier for it.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Witnessing the protection and care that a heroic type affords his or her loved ones, you may long to have someone like this on your side. Maybe you already do, and this person just hasn’t had reason to step up yet.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The trouble with compromising yourself to fill a role is that if you succeed it will only lead to more and more compromises. Besides, you’ll be far more productive when you stick to what’s real in you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The I Ching declares, “Fire on the mountain, catastrophic to man, a passing annoyance to the mountain.” Your soul is big like the mountain, so you’re not worried about the things that alarm others.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Moving constantly forward is positive even if the movement seems miniscule right now. The only way anyone gets anywhere is by occupying the space just before them, over and over and over.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The morning brings an answer to your prayers. This may be a prayer you made a very long time ago, but the answer is perhaps even more relevant now than it ever was.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In order to release the resentment you feel against another, you don’t have to interact with that person. Write down everything you want to say to that person, and you’ll feel better. No sending, please!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When the day’s events cause tension, zoom out your focus and notice that you’re a person experiencing a change of chemistry and emotion — that’s all and that’s normal.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Here’s something to consider before you go through all the effort to make alterations to your image: There’s nothing quite so attractive as inner peace.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have quite a lot to get off your chest today, and once you do it, your heart will be lighter. Just don’t let your mouth work faster than your mind.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You cook almost as well as you socialize, and your friends will agree that the combination is a winning one today. You’re the person to be near, and many will sidle up.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How long should you commit to a project that doesn’t seem to be working out? This one used to be your dream. Is it anymore? Only you can make this call. Your heart will know when it’s time to leave.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s easy to decide what to wear, do and say when you know who you are. Of course, who you are is always changing. That’s why it benefits you to get reacquainted with yourself with some you-on-you time.
