Moon of Patient Inaction
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Anyone can give others the benefit of the doubt, but you'll take it into radically generous territory, giving total trust without hesitation. If they have ill intent, they'll go elsewhere; your kindness takes the fun out of the swindle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your attention actually makes the other person fascinating. The person was interesting to begin with, but his or her story becomes great because of your unique brand of curiosity.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You dislike social situations in which you're expected to network, schmooze and sell. You see life as a creative process, not as a series of trophies. Don't worry; many will find your approach appealing. Show up and just be you.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 20). The objective still seems far off, and you're not even sure how you're going to get there, but that's all part of what makes this year so magical. You sweat and toil for some successes, and others happen by sheer miracle. With a ripple of kindness and effectiveness, you'll make a difference in the lives of many. Gemini and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 20, 44, 19 and 3.
COSMICALLY CURIOUS ABOUT ... SELF-PARENTING (PART TWO). Even for those fortunate ones born to champions of parenting, life is still better when we learn to care for and help ourselves. For ARIES, self-parenting is demanding because Aries is the newborn of the zodiac. Aries has not only the high energy of youth but the accompanying headstrong tendencies. Couple that with a rebellious streak and fire-sign passion... this is a job for the super-nanny. But good news, Aries: You have everything you need to keep up with yourself.

The trick is in realizing that the rebel in you isn't something to quash or tame. That part of you is usually trying to tell you something -- that you need freedom and fun, that there are basic pleasures and novelties that should be prioritized; otherwise, you feel stifled and bored. When that part of you acts out, a good self-parenting move is to be patient, loving and curious. Ask: "What is the need that I'm ignoring? What is it I need to face?"
Also, it's worth noting that Aries adults do better with a consistent sleep schedule, just as Aries children do. Going to bed and waking up at approximately the same time may seem boring, but it has many life and health benefits that are anything but.
