The benefit of that particularly awful emotion called "shame" is that it keeps us aware of other people's expectations. Who doesn't feel shame? Psychopaths, that's who. Regardless, between yesterday's new moon and tomorrow's autumnal equinox, this is a good time to let some of the shame go. The emotion doesn't deserve such a large role.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's said that words should be weighed, not counted. The tone of your messages today will be clearly felt and with the precise intensity level that you meant.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Can love really make impossible things happen? Extraordinary things, for sure. Love is your super fuel today. You apply yourself differently when you're powered with love's high octane.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Science tells us a lot these days. Just keep in mind that science thought it was telling us a lot 200 years ago, too, and we didn't even know about germs then. Stick with what works for you, whether or not it's scientifically sound.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've experienced injustice in your life so you know, when you see it happening to others, the gamut of emotions that are involved, especially the fear. This is why you help to right the wrongs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you admire the way a person thinks, you want to be near the person to share your appreciation and to understand better, maybe even adopt, that manner of thinking.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Reasoning is option one; force is option two. Force can be effective, but it also produces an equal and opposite reaction. It will be better to walk away and do what it takes to recharge powers of reason before deciding on option two.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those close to you really don't care how many of your personal goals you reach. They love you beyond such things. You will be loved dearly whether or not you accomplish anything. But this isn't about them; it's about you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even the best conversations will eventually peter out if you don't introduce new topics. Relationships are the same. New focus keeps them from going stale. Today's introduction will keep things fresh.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Problems cause moods and moods cause problems. Regardless of the origin, foul vibes will be fixed. Exercise solves problems unrelated to health and so does inspirational reading, power posing and positive thinking.
