The full Scorpio moon is ripe with mystery, charged with excitement and practically spilling over with secret knowledge that, after tonight, will be known as only "knowledge." This lunar event is accompanied by a trine of Mercury and Pluto, which acts as a super-sensitive microphone that pics up not just words, but all that they hide as well.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't know how great you are at a thing until you see the level at which the average novice is working. This is why it will benefit you to test your skills in a public setting.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you're stuck, just ask yourself more questions. Questions such as "why does this matter?" or "what is important about this?" will bring you past the symptoms and right to the root issue.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're certain that if you can just stick to a certain behavior, you'll get what you want. Training yourself will be similar to training other creatures; different rewards and deterrents, same principle.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Where does the joy come from? "Within" gets the most votes from people with semi-charmed lives. Of course, it's easier to find the joy-well "within" when the environment "without" readily supports emotional and physical needs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your hunches are eerily accurate, but those who have something to hide will try to make you doubt them. Think of this as a game and it becomes really fun for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Laughter is the way to unity, fun and a generally warm feeling. It's a little painful when the joke doesn't land, but keep trying because it's worth it. If it were easy, everyone would be funny.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's an element of randomness that's made its way into your consciousness and is starting to seem maybe not so random after all. Look for the pattern. You'll soon break the code.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The extraordinary moon could provide you with just the extra nudge required to break your own rules. So if it really matters, put extra enforcements in place. And if it doesn't, have fun!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll be invited to compete. This is an honor, as it means that you're seen as a worthy opponent. Accepting this invitation is optional, and hopefully you'll enjoy the implied compliment either way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll be so comfortable around those who respond warmly and predictably to you that you may wonder why you would hang out with people who are difficult to harmonize with.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Rip up the script because today is a full-on improvisational challenge. Here's the beauty of it: You don't have to come up with crazy moves. It's all about listening intently and responding honestly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're awesome inside and out. So stop noting what you want to change about yourself and just take a moment to observe the glory of what's there. See it in the mirror; see it in your soul.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 18). You've a skill that you haven't found a great use for up until now; that'll change. You'll figure out how to trade on the talent for what you most want. Other significant happenings in the months to come include the return of a friend, an adventure with strangers and a public honor you'll receive for your work with a team. Scorpio and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 23, 1, 18, 47 and 39.
YOUR MOON SIGN: (part three) The moon is our closest luminary and she changes more frequently than any other, transiting through the zodiac in about 28 days. You can find out what your moon sign is by keying "find my moon sign" into a search engine. Cancer moon people are not as resistant to feelings as the rest of the zodiac can be. When the moon is in Cancer, she's in her home territory. Just as people tend to be more comfortable and expressive in their own homes, Cancer people are very at home with the changing emotional landscape that is human nature. Cancer moon individuals are wonderful in a crisis and also can be quite patient working with children and others with a wide emotional range. Leo moon people have a knack for attracting attention, though not always while doing the things that would classically fall under the category of performance. Leo moon endows her natives with a show-stopping glow and a solid sense of timing. Leo moon people may insist that they don't want to be in front of the crowd, and yet they secretly feel at home there.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: With her dry wit and sharp sense of humor, writer, producer and actress Tina Fey was the first female head of "Saturday Night Live's" prestigious writing team. A true Taurus with Mercury and Saturn also in the sign of the bull, Fey doesn't follow the rules, she makes her own. Look for Fey and friends in the comedy "Wine Country" timed perfectly to coincide with her solar return.
