Moon of Empaths
This empath's moon reminds us how the ability to resonate and connect with another person's emotions is the essential relationship skill. Those who don't know or care or influence how others are feeling are going to have a hard time making it into the inner circle. Those who do will have a hard time leaving that circle.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's beauty in rigidity. There's beauty in flexibility. There's beauty in however things are right now. As long as you're looking for beauty, you will find it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Everywhere you look, you'll see the attention-seeking traps of our narcissistic age. You are called by modesty and service; in this way, you'll stand out from the crowd.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What task will move the needle for you today? What is the one thing that's going to make you feel accomplished when your head hits the pillow tonight? Start with that. Anything else is gravy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People wear a series of masks to be taken away one by one with those they begin go know, like and trust. You're getting to who a person really is. This is nothing to rush.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There's a reason they call it "the courage of your convictions." The conviction comes with a bag of courage. When you commit to fully to the action, there will be no room for anything like doubt.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Creation is one process. Analysis is another process. Separate the two, and you'll be comfortable and focused inside each separate process. This will bring about your best work.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are natural forces of attraction at work in your day, and they will play an even more prevalent role once you become aware of them enough to consciously engage in this dance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you are working too hard at something, then you'll become resentful and bitter. To figure out a better, smarter, shorter route is not the lazy thing; rather, it's what's best for all.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It can be unnerving to see others doing the very thing you want to be doing, but don't let their success shake you up. Mind your own journey. Yours is coming.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You enjoy the challenge that comes with getting to know another person and are almost annoyed when you find out too much too soon. It takes the fun out of discovery! This principle works in reverse, too.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Being aware of what thrills you will clue you in to the sort of goals you can really get behind. After all, if you're going to commit to something, shouldn't it hold a great potential to excite you?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What's the difference between an ordinary magician and a great one, a plate of food and a culinary feat, a movement and a dance? Presentation. You'll add your flourish.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 16). You'll discover that you're so much more capable than you imagined as you push yourself to glorious accomplishment. This year, you dive into challenges and delight yourself and an audience, too. You'll make money for others and be well-paid for your expertise. You'll connect with nature and improve the ways you nurture yourself. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 33, 25, 10 and 42.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm a musician, and I feel very inspired by space and space themes. Do you have any insights for me about incorporating the feeling of space or the energy of specific planets into my work?"
Did you ever consider jamming with Jupiter? Newly retrograde, Jupiter is a musician looking for jam partners. The largest planet in our system is the source of natural radio waves that can be picked up on earth using a simple antenna and short wave receiver. NASA has set up a radio station, Radio Jove, exclusively for the music of Jupiter. The NASA website makes clips of Jupiter's Greatest Hits accessible to the general public over the internet. Sometimes, Jupiter's music is relaxing. Other times, it's invigorating and even irritating. It can sound like a synthesizer, other times a freeway, or the ocean. (Or maybe it's the ocean that sounds like the music of Jupiter. There's still debate about which came first!) Pianist Paul Collier has created a kind of duet with samples of Jupiter music. For other music inspired by Jupiter, check out Gustav Holst's "The Planets," specifically "Jupiter the Bringer of Jollity," or, in the pop genre, "Drops of Jupiter" by Train.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Free-spirited Megan Fox is a Venus-ruled Taurus who's wanted the acting life since she was a preschooler watching "The Wizard of Oz." Born under a Leo moon, her creativity is ever-expanding and the spotlight has an irresistible, magnetic pull. Mars and Neptune in Capricorn suggest a terrific business sense and an ambitious, competitive nature. Look for Fox in the action flick "Rogue."
