Virgo Sun Debut Venus and Jupiter pair up in Leo, and it's one of the luckiest moments for love in the year. This is the stuff romantic comedies are made of: accidental meetings, playful back-and-forth, oh-so-adorable physical awkwardness. Then comes a change of …Read more. Leo Sun Entertains The supermoon in Aquarius is the second of three this year. The ideal may not match up to the reality, but we'll wind up in a much better place because we had an ideal. This is also the moon of philanthropy and an expanded worldview. It will be …Read more. Leo Sun Entertains The Leo sun mixes and mingles this week creating moments of entertainment wherever she goes. On Wednesday, she angles the Sagittarius moon, and on Friday she focuses her exciting energy on Mercury, pulling more people into the act. Keep in mind that …Read more. Retrograde Reprieve The theme this week is memories and meaning. In the recent astrological past, it was retrograde-mania, with innermost and outermost planets simultaneously traveling backward.

New Moon Complications


Tomorrow's Virgo new moon suggests we might need a different diet. She says our work systems aren't what they could be. She wonders whether we could do more to ingratiate our friends or train our pets. Why so critical, Virgo new moon? Well, it's not all her fault. She has a difficult alignment of Mars and Saturn to contend with, and she's as distracted as a mother of toddlers in the grocery store. Don't be too hard on yourself.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There will be plenty of reason not to judge others this week, the most obvious being that none of us is without faults and peculiarities. But the most relevant reason is that the act of judging takes a person out of his or her own life to deal in the business of others, which, in the end, just makes that person rather boring.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's not that the current situation is so bad, but you're all about growth and improvement. As long as things are changing, you feel compelled to steer them to the changes you desire. Of course, fighting circumstances will only keep you stuck in them. Keep your focus on what you dearly want and stay in motion.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Move on to the next chapter. You can always come back and reread this last one later. But for now, you just have to build on it. Trust that you have assimilated all that has happened and will make an intelligent next move, even though you probably feel like your brain hasn't fully caught up to where you're standing.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). This week you will feel strongly that you can make someone happy, and you should definitely answer that intuition with action. Know that this is no small matter — the best moments of life are born of following through on such a gentle inkling. In doing so, you will help to heal the brokenness in the world.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sure, there are types of people. But each person is also an individual — you see this clearly. You'll recognize the unique qualities, characteristics and talents of each person you meet and help each one know he or she is special. You can do this because you are very in touch with your own uniqueness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There's no reason to be afraid. If you're feeling afraid, it's because you're telling yourself a scary story. Follow the thought pattern backward from the pangs of fear and articulate the story. Write it out. See whether you can't take the individual facts and concoct an entirely different story — one that has a happy ending.

LIBRA (Sept.

23-Oct. 23). You've crossed a line. You've become too popular for your own good. You may wish to be left alone this week, but the way to achieve this is actually to go in the opposite direction: Be more available and accessible; be an open book. Decreasing the mystique around you will turn down your personal magnetism.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The week's cosmic gift will be an unexpected twist to an otherwise straightforward transaction. The plot turn will put you in a power position. From this place, you'll feel less concerned about what people think and more apt to follow your own instincts and appetites. Inhibitions will drop to the wayside.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The reason your world is stuffed full of interesting things to do is that you're a curious person: one who interacts with the elements and engages others, one who puts down the cellphone in favor of real life. You're not doing it to set an example. It's really just a more enjoyable way to live.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In the movies, important decisions are often punctuated by sweeping gestures, mass movements and epic special effects. In real life, important decisions often come without fanfare. Destiny will speak to you in a whisper, accompanied only by the certainty of your heartbeat.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Furious activity is one way to process the uncomfortable truths. Just know that a flurry of busyness will not bring you any closer to peace and understanding than running away, shutting down or other such coping mechanisms. The best way is to slowly, bravely deal with each small problem at a time.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). While others condemn the weirdoes of the world, you may just decide there's nothing really wrong with them. Weirdness can breed strength. It also gives the others a chance to stretch, be compassionate and perhaps even be inspired toward greater levels of creativity by those who heed a different call.

THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: You enjoy achievement more than you care for the prizes that come with those achievements. September brings new people and love into your life. October is for committing to business you'll be working on for the rest of the year. Profits soar in January. Because you believe in the forces of good over bad, you'll lift someone up — maybe even save them — in February. Your spirituality will comfort and inspire. Spring brings an education in the social arts.
