Those who know anxiety in its acute form may not be as keen to recognize its softer forms. When you procrastinate, don't promote yourself or hide in any way, consider that these could be anxiety-related behaviors. The Pisces moon offers help on the matter, especially to those who try to befriend fear instead of succumbing to it.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're free of social restraint, emotionally open and highly creative. Use this daring mood! Put something singular into the world. It may require an investment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Conversations have a way of veering out of control today, which can be a whole lot of fun in the right setting. Go where you think you'll be well-received.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will focus on your own wants without imposing them on others. You'll follow your desire only to the extent that the pursuit helps those around you by generating business or inspiration.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People on their phones give the impression they'd rather be somewhere else. Since attractiveness is typically in and of the moment, being on the phone is inherently unattractive and ideally tended to in private.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are many paths to feeling better about who you are. You'll choose the quick way — to turn up the self-care and self-acceptance. It's much better than the hard way of aggressively trying to prove yourself or lowering others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What do you wish you would have known back when you were struggling? You'll get the chance to articulate this for someone else and feel mightily fulfilled in the sharing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Apps can make a person look better in pictures. The right clothes and words can also help a person appear improved. But you don't want to appear better, you want to be better, which is a bigger investment and the only one that matters.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll be getting in touch with what makes you feel alive. It has to do with novelty and the freedom to explore the unknown. Real gratitude isn't felt just because you tell yourself to feel it. It's more of a discovery.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fun has a lot to do with whose idea it is. Even pleasurable things can seem like chores if you feel that you absolutely must do them instead of having options and free will.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The greater degree of control people have over their own thoughts and feelings, the less drawn they will be to controlling one another. A sense of emotional safety will calm everyone down. Create it wherever you can.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To what degree are you willing to alter your agenda for someone else? This is the big negotiation of the day. It comes with an awareness of just how much another person seems willing to sacrifice for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Imbalanced relationships can work for a while, but they are not usually built to last. Highly functional relationships are about a balanced give and take so that no one is only giving or always taking.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 6). You'll find a new style in several different areas of your life. For instance, a different kind of eating will increase your vitality and fix an ailment. A new style of communicating helps along your personal life. A fresh interest gives you inroads to an exciting group. Your willingness to shake things up injects 2020 with vibrancy. Virgo and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 10, 6, 27 and 38.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "My new boyfriend is a flirt. Every time we go out, he seems to know half the people in the room, and most of them are girls. I can tell he likes me, but should I be concerned? I don't want to get played. By the way, I'm an Aquarius; he's a Gemini."
The Gemini is a notoriously social creature: His quick wit and conversational aptitude mean he is a favored participant in any social gathering. What might prompt a little caution is that Gemini is typically reluctant to commit. But then again, Aquarius gets this. You grapple with your own commitment issues, right? The fact that he makes it clear he wants to be with you is a compliment you can probably take to heart. As long as his flirts aren't offensive or excessive, forgive these as innocent nothings spun out to make the Gemini feel attractive and attentive to others. Obviously, he is into you. Allowing him that license will communicate to him that you don't feel threatened, which will in turn make him all the more attracted to you.
