When the Moon Comes Down to Earth
We all have flaws. And though most of us prefer our own shortcomings to those of others, our mistakes, once owned, do make us more compassionate toward the other imperfect humans. The Taurus moon brings us back down to earth, where we're more likely to help instead of condemn each other for our failings.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Usually clouds gather before the storm, so the aware person knows when to duck for cover or get out an umbrella, as the case may be. You'll use the analogy in the realm of emotion today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You know who gets angriest at the small things? Beings who are even smaller. But the small things can't help what size they are, and the tiny beings can't, either. So you'll respect all and try not to judge things by scale.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It can be daunting to meet people in a broad context, but as the context gets narrower, people feel safer. While it's easier to relax around friends of friends than with the general public, today it will pay to search wider than that.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). While a dog's affection may not be conclusive evidence of a person's fine character it does feel wonderful to be sloppily, enthusiastically and unconditionally appreciated. Dogs aren't the only ones who will deliver thusly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Today features different people, going at different paces, with different tolerance levels and definitions of "high pressure." You'll be as content as you are patient.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The good fortune will come from getting out and interacting. Tonight you may find yourself communicating differently with someone as you begin to sense this person's deepening affection.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Tending to your inner self is as essential to your existence as feeding yourself. Right now it's about paying greater attention to what you need, how you feel and, most importantly, what you have to give others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's someone who's been thinking of you. In fact, yours is the first face that pops to mind in the morning and the last one that comes in clear at night. What do you wish for this person?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Mastering anger will be the advanced skill to work on. Danger and anger are only one letter apart. While it's healthy to express your feelings, anger should only be let out in a safe context. Anger also defuses with a delay.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're wanted and needed in new places. A group of people you're not too familiar with will readily accept you as one of their own. It will be a struggle not to over-commit your time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Though it takes intelligence to know another person, it takes wisdom to know yourself. Wisdom often comes from the pain that accompanies mistakes, but not today. Today it comes from listening better and better.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are questions that those who prefer the bliss of ignorance just shouldn't ask. And anyway, you're starting to get information through a kind of osmosis of feeling, so maybe asking is unnecessary.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 29). It's like you and life are in a conversation. Sometimes it's deep; sometimes it's silly and totally off the rails. But it's a conversation you love either way. You'll be freed of a burden in the early part of your solar return. You'll make an impression with your style. The relationships you nurture will reward you richly. Leo and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 3, 33, 38 and 13.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: It's what you don't need that makes you so attractive to a certain someone. TAURUS: You light the way for people you don't even know are following you. GEMINI: Your response to adversity has an admirer holding you in higher esteem. CANCER: In the past you've made decisions about love unconsciously that you're now going to approach with greater awareness. LEO: What has the biggest impact on your love life this weekend will be, oddly enough, money. VIRGO: Don't call the relationship "broken," because it's working as it should, and it will work even better when cooperation increases. LIBRA: You'll give what you can and what's easy for you, and your love will demand more. Later you'll be glad. This is how love becomes your teacher. SCORPIO: You figured out why a relationship went cold, and you'll apply what you learned to a new relationship to stellar effect. SAGITTARIUS: No one is the ideal that another person has imagined. No one. Dealing in reality will satisfy, though. CAPRICORN: Invest your attention and time in others based on how they invest in you. AQUARIUS: The way to fall for a person is forward and with open eyes so you can be sure you're falling for the person who is really there (not an imagined version). PISCES: Take the pressure out of a relationship. Who needs it?
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Gemini is catching the glow of the Capricorn sun and loving the attention. If it weren't also New Year's Eve weekend, these two would have a much quieter time showing their love for one another, but this air sign and earth sign mix will be the perfect blend to bring 2018 in with festive glitz and glamour. Gemini will love a fun and trendy setting, and Capricorn will keep the countdown classy.
