As the sun and Venus in Gemini harmonize with the Libra moon, magic words will open doors and hearts. It's not only the words themselves that matter; the timing and emotion behind them are as important as the words themselves. Each element is one number of the combination lock. You need all three to be correct before things unlock.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It would be a shame to let that interesting person walk out of your life without so much as a hello. Don't worry about what you'll say. You could spout exquisite nonsense and still forge a connection.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Ben Franklin claimed that three people could keep a secret if two of them were dead. It's something to keep in mind before you tell even one trusted person your classified information.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Where you set the bar will determine your satisfaction with what happens today. Go low. Set your expectation somewhere around "tolerable" and let anything above that come as a delightful surprise.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's natural to burn out on something you've been doing a long time. It's just as natural to move through the fire and keep going until you reach a different perspective and reality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know what you care about. Actually, a lot of people care about it. The way you're different from many is that you direct the care you feel in an abiding, steadfast and loyal way. This is how you'll make a difference.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Now that it's getting easier for you to manage your own expectations (you're practically a master), it's time to apply the skill where it will make an incredible difference — managing the expectations of others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're the great harmonizer, the peace ambassador, the spreader of "chill." Your ways of diffusing the tensions around you are subtle (it all starts inside of you) but powerful.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you think in terms of making memories, your priorities will shift. If you could accomplish one thing that would make this day go down in the records, what would it be? That's the thing to do first.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Appearances can and will be manipulated, perhaps not on purpose, but people are so conditioned toward presenting a certain image that they will do so unthinkingly and regardless of the truth of the matter.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just because you lived a scenario doesn't mean you understand it. Your own life and your role in it can sometimes mystify you as though it wasn't even you who was living it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Use your imagination to look into the future. It's about the best tool there is for the job. Furthermore, when it comes to predicting the move that will bring you the best outcome, none are more prescient than you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Humans are never satisfied, which is why they spend so much time unhappy, and which is also to credit for the survival of the species. On a personal level, today helps you appreciate what spiritual hunger has done for your life.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 12). This year shows you learning yourself better than ever, and that's knowledge that will create both welcome ease and thrilling challenge in a life that feels custom fit to you. You attract the people you need to serve and the people who will fortify you. The financial picture lines up in a new way for you in October. Capricorn and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 40, 11, 20 and 13.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "What are nodes in astrology? My north node is in my 10th house, in Virgo, and my south node is in my fourth house, in Pisces."
When we refer to the moon's nodes in astrology, what we're talking about is the points in your natal horoscope chart where the moon crosses from the north latitude to the south and back again.
The north node is known as the dragon's head, and wherever it is located in your chart is called your part of fortune. This indicates where you are likely to have exceptional worldly success. The north node in Virgo in the 10th house suggests that you will find fame and honor through your own career efforts. This would be especially true if you work in the medical or agricultural fields, or if you work in a service industry like the military.
The moon's southern node is called the dragon's tail and points to the area of your life in which you may struggle. A south node in Pisces in your fourth house indicates some sort of family discord, which could result in a loss of property or inheritance. Don't let that scare you, but do take it as a reason to make keeping the peace a priority, and protecting what's yours a lifelong habit. It's good to have a lucky chart, but it's the indicators of possible misfortune that make you a better, more capable, soulful and interesting person.
