Full Moon Prep and Provisions
It is said that the least favorable time to go to the grocery store is when you're hungry. Ravenous people go off the list, act on impulse, are more susceptible to marketing and buy way too much. Tomorrow's full moon in Taurus, the sign of appetites, will be a bad shopping day. Avoid it by eating well and then shopping well today.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). With so much going on in your life, it may be challenging to pick out which is the most relevant thing to discus with the different people with whom you'll interact. Make a shrewd choice. There will be a prize for getting it right.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In order for someone to really understand you, they need a little context. Tell them where you're coming from so that they can have a glimpse of who you were before this time you're experiencing together.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like Dorothy on the farm, you've the sneaking suspicion that there's something better out there for you. Are you willing to follow the yellow brick road knowing that it's going to lead you right back home?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The tension will rise. There's more to gain; there's more to lose. Then again, you never were in this for the easy glory. And there's nothing that beats the confidence you get from having walked through the fire.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The magic number will be, once again, three. You'll need to try three times before you give up, include three examples to support your idea and work in groups of three wherever possible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A longer story isn't a better story. Too much information can dilute your purpose. You'll be remembered and respected for keeping things short and to the point.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've been pursuing a goal for a while, and today your work will take a major turn toward completion. This home stretch of a project or working dynamic is an excellent time to focus on the purpose and meaning of it all.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As of now, you're probably still not sure what the best next step will be. Brainstorming with a pen and paper or conversing with trusted friends will be the ideal way to begin forming your plan.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Formalities will get in the way of forming bonds. Wherever possible, use an easy, natural manner of being. Forget the fussy extras that distract people from the main goal, which is to make a connection.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Dynamics aren't just for musicians. Your attempts to change up the pace and volume at which you live your life will make things mighty interesting for you and yours.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don't have to always be the same person. Part of the fun of interacting with total strangers is that you can reinvent yourself on the spot and they won't know the difference.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be happy with some parts of what you're doing and disappointed with other parts. This is a process. Take the best; chuck the worst; and rework whatever you can to make it better.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 2). Your desire to maximize your potential will be answered by a teacher and a path to doing just that. You'll find new ways to express your feelings, work through your frustrations and make your joy contagious. There will be a favorable financial shift in 2018 after the spotlight swings to showcase your talent. Aries and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 22, 28 and 35.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a hurried mom, and I never have any time for myself. Do you have any tips for a Libra who seems to spend every waking minute either taking care of my real family or my work family? Sometimes I think my boss, a Cancer, is more of a baby than my baby!"
Just as financial advisers often suggest that you pay yourself first by setting some savings aside before you make other payments and investments, "you time" is something that will probably not happen unless you put it first. The best way, and maybe the only way, is to wake up one or two hours earlier. Getting in a workout, reading a few chapters of a book or just having time to think, meditate or pray will likely only occur while the rest of your family is in bed. Libras find it relatively easy to be selfless, and as long as there are people around you, you'll wind up serving their needs in some way, making it nearly impossible for you to concentrate on your own needs.
As for you Cancer boss, this sign's intuitive style requires them to lead with their feelings. The emotional approach may come across as immature, but it often comes with a stroke of brilliance.
