In rolls the swollen supermoon to the realm of Virgo on Tuesday, ready to impress us with its gargantuan glory. The lunar focus will be on health and vitality, but there's also some self-criticism and perfectionism to battle there. So while the emotional energy is earthy and thereby grounded, that doesn't make it "all good." The trick is to acknowledge the shadow side, and stay in the light. And when you talk to yourself, be nice.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's an opening in your life, and you're quietly searching for the right person for the role. It's natural to accidentally and very hopefully project onto others the qualities you're looking for (qualities they may or may not actually possess), but better not to assume. Stay curious. Take the time to really find out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There've been times you were much clearer in your direction, but this recent cycle has you off-center and unsure about what you need, who you need to know or what to focus on. What you do know is that you're currently uncomfortable. Start there. List what needs to change. What solutions might you try?
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don't even worry about what you are or what you are not because that sort of thinking has built-in limits and isn't very helpful. The way to frame it is to think in terms of actions, i.e., this was an effective thing to do or that brought minimal satisfaction. This week, be the verb and let the noun take care of itself.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though your basic needs are covered, there are other needs that somehow feel more connected to your survival than the essentials. For instance, if you don't understand what's going on in a relationship, eating doesn't feel important. And you'd gladly stand in the cold for a chance to see exquisite beauty.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've mixed feelings about socializing, but you're starting to realize that you're not going to get to your next goal without doing some outreach. The more you talk to people (and more importantly, listen to people) the better you get at it. Your best bet this week is to meet and learn about as many new people as possible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There's a difference between someone wanting to get to know you better and someone asking questions in hopes of checking the right boxes to fulfill an expectation. You shouldn't have to perform to get respect and love. So go where the interest is genuine and selfless. You'll have a lot more fun.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're an avid student, though education is a double-edged sword; it's coming from someone else and therefore can't help but be loaded with bias and misinformation. Education will at least help you figure out where your own interests lie. Then, to really know, you'll go out and experience it for yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't always love people. You've gotten off the phone and thought, "That's 20 minutes I'll never get back." You've left the party 50 bucks lighter and still hungry in every way. And yet, when that sense of belonging does come to rest, there's nothing like it. This week renews your spirit through heartfelt exchanges.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When people ask for help they don't really need, there's an agenda playing out. What is it? Power? Control? Or maybe this is a way to include people and get them to be a part of something. Which is it? Your ability to understand social dynamics will be key to this week's progress.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It turns out that some of the people you count on to help you form your perception of the world have been woefully misinformed. That's OK. There are so many sources out there. Get new influences and, even more importantly, new experiences. Where you weigh in on things matters in the lives of others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even though you are the sign most associated with the future, the past is still your constant companion, fading in and out of your day, reminding you, defining you or nudging you with varying degrees of helpfulness. When the past is being a nuisance, deal with it. There's something to resolve and let go.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If there's no solution, there's no problem. If it can't be changed or summed up or put to rest, if it's a symptom of the human condition, if it's out of yours or anyone's control, then it's not something you need to waste thoughts on. You'll be useful and happy solving what actually can be solved.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: The past is just a story, albeit a powerful one. The memories of a younger you will influence the scene in fascinating ways in the coming months. You'll revisit, reframe and excavate what you will come to recognize as powerful treasures, which can be utilized anew to move and shape your life and transform the future to your liking. Partnerships form in March and the dance makes love rain down down. Money frees up in June, but don't be too quick to invest it. October is a big break.
