This rotund Pisces moon represents a spiritual outpouring. Even the nonbelievers and spiritually disinclined can feel the electric tug of something beyond the physical realm. Furthermore, Mercury enters Libra, and Venus follows a few hours later, to lend their harmony to the chorus of angels featured in today's soundtrack.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's a civil war going on inside you. Two parts of you are battling for supremacy, or maybe for the right to stay separate. Alas, the country of you won't work optimally if you're divided.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). One person's help will make life easier; another person's "help" will make life harder. You've an excellent sense about this and will know straight off which help to accept. The tricky part is sticking to that first decision.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A bored person signifies an active mind. So, if you find yourself really agitated in a situation you consider dull, take it as a sign that there's something much more interesting inside you to explore.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you're not quite ready to let a thing go, consider merely loosening your grip. It might slip away on its own. If it doesn't, something interesting will happen to validate why you've been holding on to this.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will feel good to get organized. The only thing that feels better is getting free completely. So when there's a choice between filing something and throwing it out, your feel-best option will be the latter.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The silent can't be wrong or lying and they are never wasting words. "The talkative parrot is shut up in a cage. Other birds, without speech, fly freely about." — Saskya Pandita
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Hopefully, you're positioned in a place where your ideas will be valued; you'll have a lot of them. You'll be particularly effective as a designer of strategies.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll break down the barriers between people. It's very easy for you, because you see everyone as equal but different, and you believe deep down that those differences are what enrich the whole.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have a knack for spotting how people learn, which is great because whether you're officially in the role or not, you'll be the teacher.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When visiting a new place, it's easy to believe that you'll never be in the place again, and it's only natural to want to take advantage of all that place has to offer you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Is there more than this? Of course. It's all a trade. So which part of "this" do you want to give up for the "more"? And don't feel badly if you're not ready to give any of it away. Maybe that's because it's all working right now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People get ideas about you because you're interesting and you spark curiosity. It's a fine quality, among the finest. Trying to find out (or even worrying one second about) what exactly they think would only ruin the magic.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 14). You'll send out the vibrations that draw all you need right to you. The best part is that you do this so naturally by getting very honest with yourself and figuring out which beliefs are stopping you and which are helping you live your best life. October brings formal agreements. Sign and reap the benefits. Cancer and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 3, 33 and 19.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My husband and I have been together for 26 years. We have so much in common, from the birthmarks on our right pinkies to the music we like. Could it be that both of our horoscope signs have a lot to do with water? He's a Pisces, and I'm an Aquarius. It seems to me that it wouldn't make sense for a person who is a Leo to be with a person who is a Cancer. Where would they build their relationship? One lives in the water and the other lives on land."
People assume that Aquarius is a water sign because the name has the word "Aqua" in it. But Aquarius is actually an air sign. The name means "water bearer" and Aquarius is a person who brings water back to the village — an altruist and life-giver. Pisces and Aquarius are a beautiful match though, sharing many of the same ideals. Pisces is compassionate, and Aquarius is a giver. It's a very agreeable duo. Leo and Cancer can be a good match, too. Though people of the same element have much in common, people from different elements have much to teach one another. Both can work. It's how they work that varies.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Today we celebrate and mourn the late soul singer Amy Winehouse, born to an earthy Virgo sun and a moon in experimental, outspoken and worldly Sagittarius (which also happens to be the sign of excess.) Venus and Mars conjunct in Leo tell the story of someone who knew how to spin gold out of attention and art out of pain. Moon square Mercury is the stuff of beauty and blues.
