People are doing their best. It may not seem like it to someone who doesn't know the particulars about other people's skill levels, where they started, what the obstacles were and how far they've come. This honest Scorpio moon has three directives: Give people the benefit of the doubt; deliver gentle truths; and lean into humanity's basic goodness.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The word "intrigue" can have a positive connotation of fascination or a negative connotation of dirty tricks and political scheming. You're alluring. Be a benevolent keeper of the curiosity of others.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You feel like you need a certain item for practical reasons, and yet the reasons are actually more sentimental or habitual in nature. Sometimes security blankets really do provide security, though!
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Invest yourself in a program, and don't worry if it's the exact right one for you now. If it keeps you accountable to what you want to be accountable to, it's probably going to be good for you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't worry so much about finding the right person to spend time with. There are so many options. Try a few out! If you like them, you'll go back for more. If not, move on to the next. Socializing is simple!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just as casual social interest develops over synchronistic body language, conversation and interests, long-term relationship success depends on deep synchronicity of values, worldview, trust and caring.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be worthwhile to make yourself a little more like those you're trying to influence, if only momentarily. People who feel comfortable and familiar with you are more likely to let you in.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even the most basic animal attraction is rooted in the mind. Confidence and magnetism count far more than an arrangement of exterior traits. You've already got the aesthetics nailed, so make sure your inner game is solid, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The people at the top set the tone. When you're not feeling as calm and collected as you want to feel, dig down deeper for it. Do it for the ones under you who will surely be affected by your level of composure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll land in a sweet, elite arrangement. This has a little to do with luck but a lot more to do with your attitude. You see problems as opportunities, and so that's what they become.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Do the important thing first (even though you anticipate that it will be a little bit boring). Once you get that out of the way, a rush of interesting options will fill the void.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you know someone well enough to sense how he or she is feeling, that's love. When you can also predict what's going to trigger those feelings, that's a love rare and true.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You want your love, but you don't need this person for your survival, well-being or even your happiness. You are, in fact, extremely independent, and this puts a lot of fun and freedom into the relationship.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 3). Don't underestimate yourself. The limits that others put on you are not your real limits. It will be pretty obvious when the real ones kick in, and you shouldn't stop until you know that feeling. There's a happy win this month and another random windfall in December. The charity you give will help along a miracle. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 20, 4, 45 and 32.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "How do you know when a relationship is beyond repair? I've been with my Cancer husband for 14 years. The things I used to find mysterious and charming I now find dull and annoying. Why does it always have to be me who does the work in the relationship? It's all so one-sided. I wish that he'd make a romantic suggestion one day, like 'Let's go to Morocco.' That will never happen. If I do nothing, we're just going to keep drifting apart. What do you think? I'm an Aquarius."
It's hard to be the only one working on a relationship. But are you sure you're giving enough credit to your husband? Is it possible that he does more for the relationship than you think? Is he pleasant? Does he contribute financially? Is he appreciative? Is he easy to live with? Perhaps you've always been the idea person in the relationship — Aquarius is so imaginative — and your romantic suggestions are simply what's needed to keep the fire alive. Is that so bad, really? Don't give up strictly out of boredom, because you truly do have enough good ideas for the both of you.
