The Saints Go Marching in Aries
Move with the music of souls on this All Saints Day. The moon slips into the warrior realm of Aries with all of the celebratory feeling of the gospel hymn "When the Saints Go Marching In." The configuration should help us remember the joyful aspects of the lives of our loved ones who have passed to the other side.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Notice who takes your feelings into consideration. Notice who has your back. Notice who shows up, who offers first, who laughs at your jokes. You deserve a supportive team.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The fever of a retail crush, flirtation, love affair or seductive business deal is not a good state of mind for decision-making. The wanting makes you think irrationally. Cool down first. Come back to it tomorrow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you're hesitant about sharing things about yourself because you think it might be too boring or you might be opening yourself to judgment, it's a sign that you could use some more relatable friends in your life.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Family will require more tending than usual. It's a good thing, because they need you and you need to give, so all will feel better for it. Warmth is your specialty.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Of course, memory never tells the whole story. When looking back, people get fuzzy on the details of interacting with one another. What they tend to remember is how you made them feel.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's impossible to be permanently excited. Excitement is the top of of an arc of energy. Without the low of boredom or normalcy, there would be no high of excitement. You'll ride out an uneventful period. A higher energetic state is coming.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's a day of many tones and feelings. You'll pass through numerous states of mind -- twice as many as you usually would in the course of a day. It's a kind of workout for your feelings. You'll gain strength and balance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A good story is a family heirloom. A good storyteller is the custodian of that treasure. Your heart and mind are open. You'll understand where the story is in the seemingly everyday events of you and yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There's too much at stake to leave an interaction to chance. Decide before going in what impression and message you want to relay. Get clear about what's in it for you and what you're willing to give in return.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As for those who monopolize the conversation, steamroll you when you're trying to express yourself and don't ask for your thoughts and ideas on the matter -- well, it's more than selfishness. It's a warning sign.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're not in the most sensible mood, but there are some things that are better accomplished from an irrational state. If you're applying yourself to the right endeavor, it will all work out perfectly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don't get too disillusioned. When the beautiful picture starts to crack as falsities are revealed, think of it as another phase. Keep looking. Get in closer until it's lovely again.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 1). Your birthday will turn on a light in a far-reaching corner of your mind. If you've been fulfilling someone else's dreams instead of your own, that stops this year. In January, keep studying or trying until you get your breakthrough. You will become a fan, friend, teacher or lover to an exceptionally talented person in 2018. Leo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 17, 4, 21, 19 and 42.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm beginning to think that my girlfriend is partially crazy. She is normal, cheerful, loving, supportive, friendly and fun to be around about 75 percent of the time. Then about 5 percent of the time she is neutral and kind of 'blah.' Twenty percent of the time she is a madwoman. She's mean; she nags and picks on me; she yells, cries, throws tantrums for reasons I think are trivial and goes on and on about things that don't make any sense. She says that if I love her, I'll take her as she is, even the crazy parts. I'm a Taurus, and I don't even want to tell you what sign she is, as other people of that sign might get offended, thinking that I'm calling all of them partially crazy, too. Should I stay with her?"
It's easy to see how a grounded Taurus may not relate to the severe mood swings that some people go through. Your girlfriend probably loves how you can make her feel stable and centered most of the time. However, it sounds like your girlfriend may benefit from the advice of a professional in the emotional, medical and/or spiritual realm. Help her seek counsel, because 20 percent is actually a lot of life to spending in such an unpleasant manner.
