Scorpio New Moon
Sensations have a way of creating greed and dependency, making you need more and more of them to get the same effect. Spiritual life is exactly the opposite: The nature of the spirit is to need less and less. Spiritual water signs dominate the sky, and the moon is new in soulful Scorpio. Advance toward enlightenment by lightening up.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Creativity happens in a state of overflow. You'll make something beautiful out of an emotion that is flowing over, even if that emotion isn't particularly lovely in and of itself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If everyone can have it, you're not sure it's worth wanting. Plus, you're searching for meaning, and that's very personal. It's why you're focused on getting something that is catered only to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Shakespeare once wrote: "Love all, trust a few,/ Do wrong to none." You definitely love some -- maybe most. But it won't be easy for you to love all. The second hardest part of this equation will be knowing who to trust.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Considering that thoughts are just electrical impulses sent from one part of your brain to another, they really needn't be given free run of your experience. When your thoughts aren't helpful, put them to the test or ignore them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Often, who you meet is a matter of timing. But these days, you really want to meet someone, so you'll make it happen instead of waiting for destiny to stick the two of you together.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The best thing a loved one could give you today is the space to have a guilt-free time to do the things you find enjoyable. Drop a few hints! Such a gift could very well be afforded to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Of course you can't be expected to get it right all, or even most, of the time. You're learning, just like everyone else, only you're doing it from the helm of the operation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It is often the case that beautiful things don't ask for attention yet attention is lavished on them. Put your energy into making something beautiful and you won't have to advertise it all that much.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You keep adapting to your circumstances and becoming more skilled. When you get totally out of your element, it will seem like you're suddenly bad at everything. But go for it anyway; it's part of the learning curve.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Eye contact is more intimate that words. Keep this in mind when someone won't look you in the eye. Also, think about what it means to the one who lovingly returns your gaze.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's ridiculous to want people to know things about you automatically, through some kind of magical osmosis, but that is something we all do. Tell people what you want them to know. Or, better yet, show them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If there are no landmarks, it's hard to know which way is forward. You've come to a part of a project that is rather featureless and disorienting. But if you keep putting one foot in front of the other, you'll get somewhere.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 18). You'll be content, yet you won't stop improving yourself. Your winning smile will open doors and melt hearts. However, it's what you do after that counts. Follow-through is your middle name in 2018. It's why you have to be super careful about what you say you'll do and what you'll make a goal. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 20, 1, 22 and 35.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Scorpio getting ready for my wedding Nov. 25, and I'm freaking out. I'm supposed to be having the time of my life right now, and instead I feel overwhelmed and annoyed. How can I avoid being a 'bridezilla' on my big day? My fiance is a Virgo, and my mother, who is driving me crazy, is a Virgo, too."
You've been the star of the zodiac for the last few weeks. This can be wonderful and a lot of pressure at the same time. But with the planetary mood shifting toward Sagittarius, you'll start to relax and let other people do the worrying. Your Virgo mother and future Virgo husband have all the details under control, and backup plans to boot. On your special day, the gregarious Sagittarius sun will be your party planner, making sure that everyone is mingling well and that your night is laced with excitement. Mercury is extremely well-aspected, and the sociable Aquarius moon will further enhance the sociable mood. Every tradition will be honored, and the correct sentiments and respects will flow naturally to the right people. You have absolutely nothing to worry about. Relax, and seize each opportunity to laugh, love and have a good time.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: I won't lie. I watched the trailer for "Lost in London" (coming out in January) several times, and I still can't figure out exactly what it is. A comedy film? A live event? Performance art? Whatever the case, troublemaker Owen Wilson is heavily involved. He was born when the sun, moon, Mercury and Neptune were all in Scorpio. It's a charismatic astral lineup: intense, passionate, creative and enormously magnetic.
