Full Moon, Full Appetite

Holiday Mathis on

The full moon shows a lust for life in Taurus, the sensual and determined sign of appetite. The bullish nature of this transit should put us all in touch with our animal nature. Here comes a craving for creature comforts. There's a wholesome aspect to this, too, especially for those who have neglected to give the soft animal what it needs.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Of course you're interested in what affects your needs and goals. If you can't figure out what's in it for you, naturally you'll lose interest. Knowing this is how things work, you'll craft something irresistible for you and yours.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll lead with your generosity of spirit, though you still must act out of self-interest in many matters, as it would be irresponsible not to. Self-care is a duty and a public service.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've undergone so many incarnations in your lifetime already, and you're about to add another to the story. Follow your curiosity wherever it may lead. If you're not sure if you should ask, ask anyway.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe you started late, or maybe you don't come from the same place as the others. Whatever makes you different, lean into that. You'll succeed without having to hide anything.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's futile to fight against the waves of change. They are so powerful, and you'll only exhaust yourself. Stay relaxed, and provide no resistance. Eventually, out of the turmoil, you'll start moving steadily in a direction that makes sense.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There's no time to waste on hating the experiences that led you here. That will cause you to fall back. Instead, affirm: Here you are, shaped by what happened and also by what might happen. Fall forward.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Each stage of your life seems to demand you to be a little different from who you were. And now you're busy figuring out what stays and what goes for the new version.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The sands of time don't stop for drama, and neither should you. Take a quick scan to assess what's relevant to you then move on. Avoid gossip. It's good to satisfy curiosity unless that curiosity is of the morbid variety.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). "Sky above, earth below, fire within" -- this creed has served you well, though you really could use a water sign influence to balance it all out. Today you'll get just that.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're not sure if the project is finished, the job has ended, or the relationship is played out. Make no move. Wait to see what else comes up. Punctuate this with a semicolon instead of a period, because there's probably more.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A relationship is changing again. You've already been strangers, friends, enemies, friends again and more. And now you are back to being a little unsure of what the other person will do. Keep up your guard as you find out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You definitely won't master the whole project in a day or even a month. Anyway, big thinking can be overwhelming and can bog you down now. Focus on being the master of this hour, then the next and the next.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 3). You'll do it by yourself, for yourself, over the next six weeks -- with amazing results, due to your habit of breaking things down into small steps. Plans will change to accommodate someone who needs you. Ultimately, it's a lifestyle improvement! In 2018 riches come from teamwork and community spirit. Capricorn and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 20, 3, 15 and 28.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You're too busy working on yourself to worry about whether they're good enough for you. TAURUS: Don't worry: You can lose yourself to the luscious moment without drifting out of grasping range. GEMINI: Your parameters will change, depending on who is asking. CANCER: When you need them, you hug. When you miss them, you call. If only everyone were as effortlessly expressive as you are. LEO: Performing for your loved ones will go over exceedingly well now. VIRGO: No love regrets allowed. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience. LIBRA: Training your mind and body is a lot easier than training your heart. In fact, your heart probably can't be trained, so you may as well leave it wild. SCORPIO: You need surprise. You crave novelty. If you've seen it before, you won't want to see it this weekend. SAGITTARIUS: Nuance will be lost. Be bold. This is your moment. Make your move. CAPRICORN: Not to be in charge, for a change, would be nice. That's why you'll be attracted to leaders. AQUARIUS: There's a reason you're thinking about someone all of the time, but you'll have to connect to figure out what it is. PISCES: They're happy because you're happy? It must be love!

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The full moon can be a wild time for love in general, but it's even more amplified for the Scorpio-Taurus twosome this weekend. Scorpio is a powerful and charismatic mystery to solve and Taurus is all over the case, picking up clues and moving as delicately around the situation as the bull possibly can to get Scorpio to reveal more. The result will be epically romantic though unexpectedly so.
