Moon of Unbalanced Balance


The Libra moon reminds us that grace and elegance require awareness. Represented by the balance-beam scales, an early technology for measuring gold, silver, souls and other valuables, the Libra moon suggests that balance is created with unbalance. You won't know to add or subtract weight from the scale until you see it tip.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). As the warrior of the zodiac, you instinctually know that when you're already marching, the easiest thing to do is keep marching. So march on. Extenuating circumstances are temporary. Let nothing stop you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Of course there are exceptions, and people can change. But as a rule, people who take responsibility for their actions once are likely to do so again and again. The reverse is also true.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you've ever seen a small child scream and cry for ice cream, you know that sometimes what feels desperately urgent may be a complete nonessential. Test your maturity level by stepping back from what you want.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your social scene comes into clear view. Do you have a group of friends separate from the group that your mate, family or other close friends comprise? It's important to have platonic ties all your own.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can't be everything to another person. Put some space in a relationship. It's about time you let someone miss you. Later, it will feel good to know they did.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don't over-commit yourself. Avoid filling up every open time slot this weekend. Unstructured time isn't a luxury; it's a necessity. Leave space to move slowly. In most things, slower will be better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don't waste time speculating about how you would perform in other circumstances. Focus instead on the circumstances you're in now, and trust that you have all it takes to thrive.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Wanting is like so many things in life: best in moderate doses. Desire can be motivating or debilitating, depending on what you want and how much. Temperance and happiness go hand in hand.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). What seems to be fleeting and unachievable one minute will turn out to be very much within your reach the next. There's power in trusting life's mysterious organization.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

Many projects you've taken on have been harsh and dreadful as compared to the fantasies you had about them before the fact. But you're better for the effort, so you keep dreaming up large undertakings.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In poetry and plays, too much romantic fervor often signifies doom. Is that true in your life? Not exactly, but you might be happier and more clear-headed if you could calm down your feelings about a certain someone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You love the kinds of problems that money can't solve. You're so good at working on them! Today's solution requires creativity, of which you'll have plenty.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 8). As you witness and embody beauty, you gain many admirers. The next seven weeks will teach you a new way to make money. You'll meet a dream partner at a February event. You won't know your own strength until you summon it in May. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 35, 10, 40, 6 and 41.

LUCKY CHARMS: Which item will amplify your luck this weekend? ARIES: A bell, the symbol of angel music. When you hear a bell, make a wish. TAURUS: A knife, the symbol of protection, status and power. Open a special letter with the blade. GEMINI: A pen, the symbol of bringing the constructs of your mind into reality. Write out your goals. CANCER: Mint, the symbol of life's freshness and vitality. Drink for health. LEO: Wool, the symbol of warmth and wealth. Wear for a luxurious feeling. VIRGO: Clove, a symbol of faraway lands and exotic tastes. The smell of cloves will set your heart on a new adventure. LIBRA: A vase, the symbol of gifts and inheritance. Like flowers in a vase, organize yourself within your inherited talents to lovely effect. SCORPIO: Shoes, the symbol of magic in action. Where do you want to go? SAGITTARIUS: Paper is a symbol of intention. Remember that much of your life is still unwritten. CAPRICORN: Jade, a stone of royalty. You will be as cool and glamorous as this precious material. AQUARIUS: A cup symbolizes the fullness of your heart. Raise a glass with someone you love. PISCES: A ring stands for the eternal nature of your energy.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: It's not easy to get or stay hot in the competitive world of music, but the public loves a relentlessly unique voice. Case in point: colorful Trinidadian rapper Nicki Minaj, a Sagittarian superstar on the rise. Her moon in Gemini indicates a never-ending supply of words, and three Capricorn planets show serious business acumen.
