This full moon in Aries, being the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox, is the harvest moon. In some skies at certain hours, it will appear large and orange, as if pregnant with mystic powers and promises. The theme here is abundance, which can sometimes occur without provocation but more typically is the outcome of hard work.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). A sprinkle of anticipation will be the spice of life. Buy a ticket for a concert happening weeks from now, or plot a weekend getaway for next season. The plans will increase your enjoyment of the present.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Jealousy has a direct correlation to insecurity. People who are very secure do not experience it nearly so much. Dismiss the comments of jealous people, as those words are untruthful and born of fear.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You lavish attention and help on others and don't expect anything in return. This spiritual generosity will be at the root of some pretty wonderful happenings in your life, the early evidence of which comes in today.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). No news can be good news, though it's also boring news. However, you have this way of presenting bland news as if it were the most exciting information ever imparted, which is a talent that will be quite useful today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Tables will turn. Someone who used to tower over you in either stature or intention will now appear quite diminutive. Lucky for that person, being on top brings out a benevolent side of you. You'll take the high road.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll polish your personal qualities, as you deserve to. After all, you are rarer than the rarest gem. You belong in the beautiful light that helps you reflect your many facets.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you were younger, you had foolish moments, same as every young person. It's why you have great compassion for the dumb things people do when they don't know better. It's also why you'll forgive someone tonight.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Today features an encounter with someone from your past or someone who reminds you of a past relationship. This quickly will work its way into a brand-new chapter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don't worry; you, too, will get to pull up a chair and eat at the sweet banquet of success. So keep the sunny, hopeful attitude, and continue working. This is going to take some time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don't want to complicate a friendship, and that's why you'll make a decision about how your relationship is going to be and then stick with it. This is what's easiest and best for all.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're in no mood to do what other people want. So, while you have the energy to tackle an entire litany of demands, the only ones that will be honored are the ones issued from you to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Regret is not an emotion that's easy to build on. Though the past choices may not have all been ideal, you're moving on now. Gravitate toward the emotions you can build on — understanding, compassion, grace.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 24). The full Aries moon on your birthday is a harbinger of victory. Whatever you've been fighting, you'll emerge triumphant. More highlights: A publication will involve you. You'll have to decide how famous you want to be. You'll journey far and wide in a group of like minds. Heartfelt promises open the new year. Leo and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 22, 1 and 14.
ASTROLOGICAL TOPICS: How do you know if he's into you? Every sign shows his interest in a slightly different way. ARIES: He's direct. He'll come right out and say that he wants to take you out. Wait until he says it. He feels uncomfortable with letting the woman lead. TAURUS: He may seem a little awkward or touchy when the one he likes is around. Playful nudging, putting an arm around you or a casual touch on the arm is a sign of interest. GEMINI: He'll try to impress you with a factoid or keen observation. He'll ask you about your interests and try to converse with you about something you care about, or he'll ramble on about something that he thinks makes him seem smart. CANCER: He'll invite you into his world. If he doesn't ask you to visit his house, he might walk with you or offer to give you a ride somewhere. He also might introduce you to his friends or family members. LEO: He'll show you his talent, whatever it is. If he's great on the softball team, a fantastic salesman or a standout cook, he'll want to demonstrate. And if he's won any awards or been given a high honor, he'll make sure you know about it. More tomorrow!
