Different things motivate different people. Some are set into motion by the promise of pleasure, others activate for the possibility to have a greater influence over their world. The lesson of this Taurus moon is that taking care to learn your own buttons will prevent you from moving involuntarily in the direction others want you to.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's nothing worth losing your cool over. Finding a solution to the problem depends on maintaining a certain frame of mind. Do the self-care that allows you to relax.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Of course, it often takes a struggle to change your status. But if maintaining a position continues to be a struggle, consider that it's not a good fit. Life isn't meant to be easy, but it shouldn't be hard all of the time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know that you can't please everyone and have in fact learned that if too many people love what you're doing, it's not a plus. Rather it's an indication to drill further into your own uniqueness.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've no use for other people's curiosity right now. You only want to draw attention to yourself when you have a specific reason to do so. Go under the radar until the moment you're ready to lead.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Friendship is the high form of love that allows you to give purely today and with the sole purpose of making another person happy and building a strong relationship.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll be mindful of how different people bring out different sides of you. The sorts of things you do in the company of one person will be totally different from what you wind up doing with someone else.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Right has might and you're in its strong clutches. The question that arises today: How do you know what's right, especially when other people believe that they are just as right?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a gift for seeing what's interesting about people and situations even when it's not readily apparent to others. Because of this, you can turn just about anything into an interesting experience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Excellence is never everywhere. By definition, the position of excellence is held by precious few. Quantity lowers value. If there's too much of a thing, then it's not worth as much. The best things in life are always rare.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're so busy building up reasons for people to appreciate you right now that there's no time to worry about the money. In the end, the money is actually a certificate of appreciation that naturally flows toward your efforts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your true friends aren't sitting around breaking down the nuances of your every word, move or mistake. They get your heart and extend the benefit of the doubt to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your imagination is so powerful today that you could easily put it to use for time travel. Project yourself to the far future. What you see there will help you create your best strategy.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 27). This year has it all — adventure and excitement offset by periods of time that let you settle into a comfortable, healthy routine. What results from the friendship and working developments in July eventually will be a shared history that makes you proud. You'll invest with friends and loved ones and it pays well in 2020. Aquarius and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 30, 33, 5 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "Could you give me some insights on my relationship with a very personable Gemini? I'm a passionate Cancer. We never stop talking and touching, but I am concerned about the future. I'm very much in love, but this will be our second time around, and I want it to be our last. While I know there are no guarantees, I'd love guidance. Previously, I was married to an Aries, and all the stars said no, but I didn't listen."
The nature of Cancer is to seek security and provide the illusion of security even where none exists — and, as you stated, certainly none exists in matters of the heart. In fact, the very nature of love is that you cannot be in love without having been injured by love. Knowing how badly love can hurt and then choosing to risk the pain is the very essence of love. Without the contrast of pain, love wouldn't be a risk, and if not a risk, it wouldn't be love. So thank your Aries for causing you pain. Without that relationship, you wouldn't be the person you are today — the person your Gemini is falling in love with.
