Under this warrior moon, the rules of battle are relevant, and not to be confused with the rules of war. The one who wins the battle isn't always the one who wins the war. And the hero isn't always the person who won the fight. Victory is irrelevant in the hero's story arc because heroes aren't made by outcomes; they are made by heroic actions.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). While you're busy spurring yourself on to great achievements, don't forget to check your current resources. What does your emotional and spiritual fuel gauge say? Is it time to plug in or gas up?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As if you needed another reason to exercise, you will be reminded that internalizing the pressures of home and work is simply not good for you. All mental stress can be physically worked through today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those who are able to process a lot of information at once often mistakenly assume it's the same with everyone. It isn't. All efforts made to communicate with those who process differently will be richly rewarded.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel off-kilter now, and it will be important to trust your inner knowing, however irrationally it may seem to show up. Your whole being wants to move itself toward the homeostasis of love.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instead of thinking in terms of belief, think in terms of functionality. Sort out what's working from what isn't, and prioritize your weekend according to the new order.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). To have access to all that comes with being in a relationship with you all the time — well, that only creates gluttony. Stop offering your complete package. That special should run for a limited time only.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Waiting for something major to happen is always a mistake. Doing something major is never a mistake. You'll wonder how to steer things. Just shoot for the moon.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If something is a big deal to you, then it just is. You shouldn't have to justify your feelings to anyone, least of all to yourself. In fact, if you can refrain from self-criticism all day, then it would help mightily.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Happiness is preparing for a long-term goal while meeting your daily requirements for of-the-moment needs like beauty, mental stimulation, kinship and excitement.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In a way, you're a company in and of yourself. You hold meetings. You manage and produce. You scale as necessary. You change tactics, staff and leadership as needed to fit the demands of the market.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People will try to describe what you do or how you present. Even when it's quite nice, the definition of others isn't totally irrelevant. It does matter — just not very much. It's more like a footnote in your experience, a context cue.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Whatever you enjoyed in the past with someone, it's about to get a reboot. Things are different now, but there's something wonderful about that difference if you just let it happen.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 7). Losing is educational. So maybe this won't be the year you learn the most. You'll win a lot and each time something inside you pops alive. In March, a new idea will suddenly take your life in a different direction. Trust your inner knowing about when to coddle and care for yourself and when to challenge and push yourself. Virgo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 1, 11 and 39.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I can't stop thinking of the person I dated in my junior year of high school, 15 years ago. We dated for the whole school year then he went off to college and it was over. A few years ago, I saw him in a restaurant and again later at a popular hiking spot. Both times we talked for about five minutes and then parted ways. The feeling between us was nice, but we didn't exchange info. I have had many relationships. Why am I so hung up on this one? He's married now. It's crazy that I still think of him, but I do. He's a Libra, and I'm a Leo. How can I get over this?"
The reason it sticks with you is because this Libra delivered your first real heartbreak. You didn't exchange info with him when you had the chance because you were protecting yourself. Leo rules the heart, and you have a tendency to give yours easily. You love passionately and the pain you feel when it doesn't work out is excruciating. But, you'll notice, you have gotten better at this through the years and this relationship is partly the reason why. Mentally thank your Libra for the lessons you've learned. Gratitude will help you move on.
