Moon of Moving On

By Holiday Mathis

June 9, 2020 6 min read

Yes, it's important that you complete some things... but not everything. This is the moon of moving on. There are better uses of your time than finishing just for the sake of finishing. For instance, if you don't like the book after a few chapters, give it away. Life is an experiment. Aquarius lunar energy favors self-compassion and lightening up.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you get overwhelmed, take a step back and remind yourself that all these tasks represent agreements you made — agreements you can change, too. You're in control here.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your role is more convincingly executed when you've dressed the part. Why stop there? Do the movie version. And while you're at it, add a soundtrack. Details like this make work fun.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don't know the answers, and you're not in a rush to find out. So why are you so confident? Because confidence doesn't come from knowing; it comes from being fine with wherever you are in the process.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Chaos, like organization, isn't inherently ugly, beautiful, wonderful or tyrannical. Accept whatever state that's happening without too much judgment and subsequent decision-making will be easier.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're going for a certain outcome. This is one is important enough to devote yourself to completely. Whether you get there in five minutes or five hours is irrelevant. What matters is that you get there.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Knowledge is only power if it is applied in a powerful way. Don't worry about obtaining more information today. Keep track of what you know and figure out how to put that to good use.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Most arguments aren't worth having, but a few are essential enough to dig your heels in and take a stand. You'll know them when you seem. Let the rest go.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your passion is palpable. After all, if you don't make time to reach your goals, who else will? You care the most, and that sets a tone that the rest of the world will follow.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You're not overly impressionable. Listening to other perspectives will only make you better. You don't have to agree with opinions to be enriched by them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's a time to spoil your loved ones silly and it's not today. Pace your sweetness. As Euripides of ancient Greece said, "When love is in excess it brings a man no honor nor worthiness."

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This day will unfold like a good story, and you'll have to follow along from beginning to end and everything in between to get the point. There's a prize that goes to the best listener.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Act on your impulse to make a move. It's the brave thing to do. If you wait, it will seem like you're not interested. Hesitation is bad for morale and diminishes excitement.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 9). Your cosmic birthday gift will be financial. The money provides a temporary fix to buy you time to really solve a problem completely. The next three months show you at your most creative. Legal and technical matters go in your favor. Your social status surges as you devote yourself to mastering a skill. Cancer and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 48, 21, 5 and 8.

GEMINIS IN HISTORY: June 9 is the birthday of two men who changed popular music forever. Cole Porter who was born in 1891, wrote hit Broadway musicals and pop songs that became standards of the 20th century. This intellectual Gemini wrote both the music and the lyrics and was heralded for his cleverness and skill on both sides of the music. Porter was born under a soulful Cancer moon, revealing a tenderness and depth that defy the happy-to-lucky Gemini influences in his chart. His complexity and versatility no doubt helped him create the songs that are still covered by artists today.

The musician Lester William Polfus was born June 9, 1915, and became better known by the name Les Paul. This guitar legend, songwriter and inventor changed the way music is heard and recorded. As the pioneer of the electric guitar and inventor of multitrack recording, one could argue that he is the godfather of rock and roll. Les Paul was born under the intellectual Gemini sun and with rebellious Uranus in the sign of invention and the future — Aquarius. His moon, Venus and Mars in Taurus are indicative of longevity and a tenacious work ethic. Indeed, in his 90s Les Paul was still playing gigs.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Johnny Depp is among the most versatile of actors. From Scissorhands to Sweeney Todd, Jack Sparrow to the Mad Hatter, this bright Gemini star strives for total character immersion. Depp's witty Gemini sun is balanced by a natal landslide of grounded earth-sign energy. In the upcoming drama, "Minamata" Depp will play war photographer W. Eugene Smith.
