This Cancer moon antagonizes as it travels, catcalling Jupiter, whistling at Neptune, giving Saturn flippant war words then goading Mars, for good measure. No bones about it: This is a mean moon. Then again, the Cancer moon can flip on a dime and be suddenly as sweet as dulce de leche and half as fattening.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The loud shirt, the bright shoes — go on. Show up the moment; it will never again this way come. In one way or another, you will create a most treasured memory.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Give what is needed, but do not over give or you’ll be taken for granted. Friends who love each other are the best kind to hang out with — the good feelings are contagious.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To be objective is to understand the value of life without being weighed down by it. Actively practicing detachment skills will bring you many peak experiences and special moments.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When the flies land on the sweet, sticky flypaper, resistance is futile. They land; they die. There are many human equivalents to this out there, some obvious, some not so. Be alert and aware so you can land with assurance.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re willing to go to a far place to let go of troublesome thoughts, emotions, memories and sensations, but you needn’t endure the travel. You can let go from wherever you are. Just open your hands and drop it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). They love you. They’ll let you know this when it matters. Until then, they’ll bask in your affection and annoy you a little while making your life harder than it has to be.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your rules will apply. Your restrictions will be honored. Your expectations will be met. If you have yet to set those kinds of systems up, do it today, because you’re favored to get it right!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When your personal life is going strong, the rest of your life tends to fall neatly into place. Make a meaningful personal connection and you’ll have a breakthrough.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your flaws make you likable. Really! Covering up your flaws, however, will work against you. People get nervous about coverups, even if the thing under the cover is adorable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your excitement over an upcoming event is truly half the fun. Revel in these plans. Put more thought into this than is reasonable, because it’s about as big a deal as you are willing to make it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are a lot of rules that play into today’s action, but the one that will matter the most is this: “Always be closing.” This is the rule you’ll thrive by. If it’s not on the bottom line, it’s not.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). With social graces, timing is everything. What’s unpleasant in one moment is charming and refreshing in the next. Much will depend on your ability to read the room well and pace yourself to that beat.
