Fears and insecurities don't like to be denied, ignored or underserved. They will rage on until they are acknowledged. It doesn't take much to calm them down. Just check in. Give attention to uncomfortable feelings. Let them have the stage so they can state the messages they bring, which, under the Leo moon, will have entertainment value.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will have companionship, and you won't have to worry about choosing the right person either. Just wait for someone to join you. Whoever comes along is the right person.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Instead of making your goal to create the most money or the most success, try this life-changing goal: Have the most fun. A playful spirit will attract everything you need.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Can you personally elevate the collective soul of mankind? Yes. How else would it raise? Each "you" picks up a bit of it. If not for the "you's," there would be no one to do it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have healing powers. You know this because you are one tough customer and yet were able to work magic on yourself. Whatever you did for you, you can do for them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Procrastination is fear in disguise. Affirm to yourself that whatever you don't know about the situation can be learned along the way. It won't be that bad. You might even like it. Take a little bite.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). To co-create will be a thrill whether you think it's going well or not. There will be lessons along the way. Creative collaborations are as particular a partnership as any love match.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your mind doesn't like an open loop. Something incomplete will haunt you. You'll go back and back to it until you've either discovered the answer or made up a theory to hold you over until you do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Destruction, which is terrible, is very different from demolition, which is necessary. You must tear down the old to make room for the new. You're ready to let go so you can build.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you feel you must succeed, it means that, somewhere in the thought stream running through your head, there's some false information. Either stop demanding success or change your definition of it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your rituals will have mysterious benefits. Maybe the ceremony involved in preparing your favorite beverage is more relaxing than the beverage itself. The same will apply elsewhere.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sometimes, ideas just come to you, but don't depend on it today. The best projects, solutions, theories, recipes and more will begin with a brainstorm. Don't skip this step.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't know what to do next, and that means you're in an exciting position, alert with the energy that only fresh trouble can provide. Search for answers in the obvious places.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 13). Your competitive streak becomes apparent, and you are willing to fight for your position in a loved one's heart. You'll exchange steamy glances. This could lead somewhere interesting. Gemini and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 44, 1, 13 and 27.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The difference between connected or relational interactions and transactional interactions will be a good thing to know and stay aware of this week under the ever-appropriate Virgo sun. Venus in Leo keeps urging us to go deeper.
People often ask questions to be polite — questions they have no interest hearing the answers to. And so, unsurprisingly, they will not track the response too closely or remember them later. To reach out in sincere curiosity is to start a connection, whereas reaching out with the expected verbiage smooths the way to a transaction.
Transactional interactions are much easier to measure. They usually involve exchanges such as time or money that can be easily quantified. Relational connections are measured in things difficult to quantify, such as feelings, intuitive responses and overall experiences. The size of connected relationships can be surprising. When we experience their particular shape and weight, it is often far greater than the amount of time or effort that went into the relationship. Connection carries within it its own power source.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Niall Horan has a broad range of musical tastes and is a fan of Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Oasis and Bon Jovi. In matters of art, Virgos have an affinity for those who can move them emotionally, and the lines of genre do not matter nearly as much as style and skill. Horan was born when the moon and Venus were in Leo, which is an indication of a natural-born entertainer.
