Three-Act Lunar Structure

By Holiday Mathis

August 19, 2019 6 min read

This Aries moon occurs in a three-act structure. It starts off by opening a window of opportunity in the realm of communication. The message here is, "If you don't ask, you don't get." Next there's a moment of difficulty involving an antagonistic angle to Saturn, buttoned up by a rather Shakespearean Jupiter alignment. "All's well that ends well."

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When there's plenty to do but not a lot on the agenda that you're excited about, it's not time to change your attitude. It's time to change the agenda. Your attitude will follow.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Reward lies ahead. This is not a pat on the back for compliance, or the salary you agreed to; rather, it's a lavish sense of fulfillment that creeps into your being and sticks around.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's only natural that relationships will shift with every new move and influence, though we are often unaware of the changes taking place. Stay aware today and you'll be able to guide this to the benefit of all.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you're eager to move on to the next thing, you might be tempted to make an agreement that's more convenient than it is beneficial to you. A small amount of research will show you better options.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's time to show off all that work you've done to present yourself well. Put yourself out there. The more accessible you are, the more money you'll make. Friendliness leads to social opportunity.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Personal ambition can be like the high-rise construction that obscures the view from your home on the ground. To see all the good stuff, you have to walk around to the other side. It's time to put some of this behind you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You know a thing or two about justice. It often comes in ways other than the ones men choose and has been known to be served on a plate of poetry with a side of humor.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While it may seem obvious to you what action would be best to solve the problem at hand, others have their own ideas. They process life differently and won't see the same options.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whatever you're selling, keep the price high. Don't cheap out on yourself. Don't cave to deals of convenience. If you get no offers, this is actually a blessing. Try again later and charge even more.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To be well-off is to have more than enough to live on. To be crazy rich is to count relationships as your most valuable treasures and let them reward you beyond measure.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A wrong will be righted. There's little you have to do to make this so — the work has either been accomplished already or is out of your hands for other reasons. It's now best to let the reckoning unfold without interference.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A suggestion hangs in the atmosphere of an interesting setting. It's hard to know when a promise that's not clearly defined is ever really delivered, but the poetry here makes you care less about the outcome.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 19). Get right to the point and tell people what you want now, while your luck is hot. Your birthday request will set off a chain of events. By the end of September, you'll have the proverbial keys to the kingdom. Where you take it from there is what matters. Your moral code will be tested. November brings a romantic atmosphere. Virgo and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 8, 20, 45 and 1.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm a Leo, and I recently enrolled in my next round of college classes. The councilor in my department told me which classes I needed to take. They all sounded lame to me. I want to be an actor, so I decided to fill up my schedule with acting and dancing classes and one voice class. Now I feel like I'm getting away with something. My mom keeps asking me which math or science class I'm in. I'm 19 years old, I don't live at home, and I'm working my way through school. My parents aren't paying for it, so do they really have a right to comment on my choice of classes?

If they're not paying for your schooling I see no reason why you have to report to them about your class load except that they are still your parents and they might have an opinion you would value. As you follow your Leo affinity for the spotlight, consider that a broad base of knowledge and experience may enhance your ability to act instead of detracting from it. Actors like Natalie Portman, who majored in psychology, and Ashton Kutcher, who majored in biochemical engineering, might concur!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: At the turn of the 20th century, the race for human flight was pursued by serious scientists across the globe, including some highly educated and funded individuals. But it was the indomitable will and tenacity of the Wright brothers that cracked the code — without funding or education. The Leo inventor Orville Wright changed the world forever by flying toward his guiding planet, the sun.
