These lunar angles will cause discomfort, and that's a good thing. Comfortable people don't remember to stretch or run or grow. Comfort causes more injury than action because it causes atrophy. When a move must be made, the overly comfortable are in no shape to make it. Better to get uncomfortable now than risk getting hurt later.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Other people are not your competition. Your last accomplishment would be hard to beat, but that's not your competition either. Your competition is this idea about what you might be capable. You just can't shake it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The reason you'll be so excellent at the task at hand is that you've had plenty of practice messing it up. These things take years perfect. You'll be revered for your expertise. They don't know how hard-won it really is.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Theoretically, anything that happens fast can be undone just as fast. The converse is also true. If it takes a long time to do, it will take a long time to undo. If you're still not sure which way will be better, then go slow until you know.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're the one who gets to decide what to celebrate, when and for how long. Do not skip this part. Celebrating the good things in your life keeps them flowing in.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe the lesson gets repeated until it's learned. And sometimes the learning isn't an answer so much as a directive to go in a different direction, a direction where you won't have to try and solve this problem anymore.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're able to send a wish for healing and contentment to those who've wronged you. You don't wish misgivings or pain on anyone, because you know they already have it. Otherwise, they wouldn't have acted as they did.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes, clarity of mind comes after you straighten up your scene. Today, clarity of mind comes first. You'll make a decision, act on it, and life gets suddenly clean and orderly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It feels weird to admit, even to yourself, that you want to be treated better, probably because it's admitting that you've been treated poorly, accepted that and wrongly believed you deserved it. It's not selfish to want to be loved.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Since it's a good thing to find out the full range of a person's behavior, don't worry so much about pleasing that person. If it happens naturally, great. If not, you'll learn a lot about people when they don't get what they want.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Not everyone uses vocab in the same way, but when you tell someone "I love you," it's because you want to make sure they know. This will be your only agenda, not to persuade or to hear it back.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don't have to always be right to be confident. Confidence is a posture, not an outcome. It's about having the guts to try, and to learn from whatever happens next.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It does no good to blame the person who put you in a jam; responsibility falls to the one who allowed it to happen, which is you. Don't blame yourself either. Forget about blame altogether and just handle it.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 25). The stardust in your soul dazzles strangers and delights loved ones. Your cosmic birthday present is immunity from jealousy. Higher-ups take you under their wings while friends and colleagues become more actively supportive. The companionship will be lighthearted, like the universe is giving you a break. The Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 29, 17, 30 and 11.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Nothing disturbs your sense of self-possession. Your rock-solid character attracts both the weak and the strong. TAURUS: Set the right atmosphere and people fall in line with your plan. GEMINI: Some games can only be won by not playing. CANCER: People who are comfortable with themselves will be comfortable with you. LEO: Relationships get easier when you know better where to set your expectations. VIRGO: You fall asleep with someone on your mind and wake up with the same thought, which then follows you all the livelong day. LIBRA: You won't exactly walk through insecurity; rather, you'll walk beside it, so you may as well make friends with it. SCORPIO: Being yourself is enough to make a change in the class. SAGITTARIUS: Honesty will be at the heart of some very interesting fun. CAPRICORN: Brave hearts are soft hearts. AQUARIUS: Relationships fall into place like jigsaw puzzles, one piece clicking in at a time. Patience is required. PISCES: The next move is a natural one and won't feel like a decision so much as a logical trajectory.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The connection between Scorpio and Libra can be too close for comfort. But sometimes discomfort is exactly what it takes to be a more fully realized human. And isn't that what love should do for us? These neighbors of the zodiac are both touched by starlight this weekend and will attract more than their share of attention, which makes it all the more special when they choose one another.
