Image Conscious Moon All world leaders have a headquarters where their (slightly better looking) image is displayed in statue or painting to let everyone know how important they are. Even if you're only the leader of your desk, social media page or other relatively …Read more. Gemini Moon Life Hack The Gemini moon suggests a life hack. When you ask for a response and none is forthcoming, you can take that as your new response.

Sun's Halo Effect


According to the halo effect, people's overall impressions of one another so strongly influence their feelings and thoughts that they may attribute special qualities to those who happen to turn out a very attractive image. With the sun so cozy with Neptune these days, it will be easy to make blanket assumptions based on looks, but try not to.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). In some cultures, subordinates check in with their superiors before making any decision at all. You would rather not have this dynamic. Each person empowered to do their thing independently — that's what works for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). All over the world, when people fold their arms in front of their chest, it means they feel defensive. It's usually a mild barrier, and when you see it, you'll work a little harder to get someone to open up.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There's only one like you; therefore, you needn't worry about saying something that's never been said before. Even if you repeat someone else's message, you'll personalize it in a way that's all you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because of your stellar work ethic, if you spend time following, enjoying and studying your idols, it feels like you are loafing off. That couldn't be further from the truth. This is how you get inspired.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Theoretically, the sun is in the process of setting just after it reaches its highest point in the sky. But those pretty colors splashed across the horizon only last a few minutes. It will be lucky, inspiring and love-attracting to watch the sunset.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Before you get discouraged or start spending money on the unnecessary, there are resources right under your nose that you haven't tapped yet. Think about who you know and who they know.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are so connected to a certain someone that you can understand what each other needs without a verbal exchange. And when you want to talk, you can say everything without saying much.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Truth be told, you don't always play to win. Sometimes it's more polite, fair or kind to let someone else win. You'll assess today's opponent with an open heart.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you interact with someone while he or she is in a bad mood, this person will associate you with this negative state of mind in the future. That's why, when you see a dark cloud, you should turn the other way.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

Before you take advice, check credentials. Is your adviser using the same strategy and winning? You could potentially waste a lot of time following the wrong person, so be careful!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your naturally affable personality will attract many, some of them needy, and you don't have an unlimited amount of time for socializing. But you don't have to be friends with everyone to be friendly to everyone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just as reading happens in a different part of the brain than television watching, each event of the day touches your mind differently, thus shaping your creativity in a totally unique way.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 27). You'll approach your work with love and your love with the attitude that you will keep working to build the bond. That's why neither gets old to you this year. Next month is for travel and making friends. April brings back a problem from last year, and you'll handle it once and for all. June features family celebration. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 23, 1, 39 and 16.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: One seems to need more space, and the other needs more contact. You'll meet in the middle. TAURUS: There's something you want to say, and you should do it face-to-face, not digitally. GEMINI: You are an independent person, but let your loved one help you anyway. It's good for the relationship. CANCER: The better you are at reading the other person the happier you'll be together. LEO: You let the other person talk more because you want to learn his or her secret heart. VIRGO: The one leaning toward you is interested in being more than just friends. LIBRA: Beware: People who post incessantly on social media about how great their lives are may be compensating for a deep-rooted insecurity. SCORPIO: The humor you share indicates similar values and thought processes. SAGITTARIUS: Like a poker champion, you'll tune in to the nervous habits, ticks and "tells" that others unconsciously project. CAPRICORN: The one who frequents your dreams will soon come into your life. In the meantime, don't stop dreaming. AQUARIUS: Love is easy sometimes, hard other times. Going through the rough patches makes the relationship deeper. PISCES: The compassion a partner shows family members indicates what's coming your way.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the Cancer moon reflects the Pisces sun, these two water signs are drawn to each other. When two water sources mix, they immediately and completely blend and become inseparable and are forever changed. Cancer provides a cozy and protective environment for the two to share. Pisces gives Cancer creative inspiration and new ways to apply talents.
