All the King's Moons

The Capricorn lunar aspects recall this passage from "All the King's Men" by Robert Penn Warren: "They say you are not you except in terms of relation to other people. If there weren't any other people there wouldn't be any you because what you do, which is what you are, only has meaning in relation to other people." Do you think it's true?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your soul's intelligence will speak to you in the form of curiosity. People who love you will support your investigation of what you are intuitively drawn toward.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you want people to know what you're thinking, you'll tell them with words, actions and other unmistakable signals. When you don't want people to know what you're thinking, they absolutely won't be able to read you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As much as you'd like everything you own to be useful, beautiful or both, the truth is that your relationship to your material possessions goes far beyond these criteria. You'll pare down today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Most scientists agree we don't perceive all of reality. Some say we don't perceive any of it, if there even is an objective reality. Regardless, you're finding points of agreement in your group that matter quite a lot.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've an unparalleled instinct for what's important. You'll focus on the heart of what's happening and find that many time-consuming details can be skipped or delegated.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Would you rather be like Batman with an everloyal Robin or be an Avenger with an entire team around to support you? You'll get the luxury of such a choice today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The old "sticks and stones" saying is both commonplace and erroneous, as words do have the power to harm and deeply wound. You'll be so careful about how you wield them.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you think about it, one of your dreams has come true, and you're living it, like it or not. The realization may have you carefully considering what to dream next.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The obstacles are tied to your talents. You cannot have an artistic block if you're not artistic, a writer's block if you're not a writer, a creative block if you're not creative. The breakthrough is imminent.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's the little flubs that make the process or project relatable. Consider leaving them in. They'll give you an opportunity to connect and share stories.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Tonight brings an impulsive mood, which can lead you to boldness or folly. Take pause, and think about reactions and fallout, especially in regard to the written word and email!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Maybe you are denying another person the full story of who you are, and it's your right to do so. It's not their story. You own your journey and have the right to preserve or present it as you see fit.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 13). The excitement is unfolding before you, a picture of a world slightly altered from the one you knew. The solar return has opened possibilities. The doors need only to be pushed, and you are bold enough to do so. Love and adventure are the prizes or your active push to the limits of your bold impetus. Sagittarius and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 43, 26, 1 and 17.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I have four best friends, and we all hang out together. One friend is always saying things that seem really crazy. She told us that her real dad is a rock star and that she once rode in a jet to a concert with him. She told us that her aunt invented Play-Doh. She told us that she has a boyfriend who grows his own herbs on a farm (even though she's only 16, so that seems really strange), that she once won a lottery and that she's somehow related to a British count who could become the future king of England. Could any of this be true? She's an Aquarius, and I'm a Virgo."

Oh, good! Virgos are excellent sleuths, focusing in on the details to get to the truth. Your Aquarius friend has a wild imagination, which can be a lot of fun. She also may need attention, feel insecure and be trying way too hard to fit in. Treat this like a mystery that's yours for the solving. I see a clue having to do with the succession to the British throne, but I don't want to give it away. In this situation, above all, try to be kind!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Founding father, principle author of the Declaration of Independence and third American president Thomas Jefferson was born under a Sagittarius moon, which is the moon of exploration. One of Jefferson's many achievements was supporting Lewis and Clark's so-called voyage of discovery to the Pacific Ocean. Mercury in dreamy Pisces indicates the ability to communicate a vision.
