Lean and Clean Moon

Holiday Mathis on

Virgo lunar vibes inspire a cleaning and clearing spree, and with Mercury as a new guest in the realm of domesticity, this effort will be focused on home. What's been neglected? What's been pushed behind or under? And how about that dust on high? The Virgo moon would also like to remind us that having less means maintaining less.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't want to rely on people liking you. That would require you aim your efforts at their satisfaction at the expense of your own. However, in order to make your work great, you do need feedback.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will learn that something you've fantasized about is actually within the realm of possibility. Now you can look at the cost, which involves both the asking price and other exchanges subtler than money.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're loyal and true. Still, just because you agreed to something long ago (or even yesterday for that matter) doesn't mean you have to keep agreeing to it forever.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll be keenly aware of how people lean on each other. Some examples will inspire you; others will scare you. Ultimately, you get to decide whom to trust and the boundaries around that.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Though thinking better thoughts and affirming positivity can't hurt, the significant uptick in your energy will come from the completion of tasks and accounting of tangible measures.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you plan, deliberate and make big efforts you create your life. When you wing it, you create your life. When you do nothing, or just whatever, you create your life. You'll come up with a brilliant mix of modalities.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're melded to another and are so incredibly close that you sometimes wonder if you have the qualities necessary to withstand such an intense synthesis. Stop overthinking. Believe that collectively, you're stronger.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Working hard and solving many problems doesn't always tire you out. In fact, now you'll find it invigorating due to the fair amount of adrenaline coursing through your day.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It will make your heart smile to see loved ones in their element with activities of which you may not be a part, and knowing you have things outside the relationship that make you happy, too.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A meeting of the minds will matter more than a meeting of other elements in the deal. Many logistics can be worked out if you're all on the same wavelength.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to be the kind of support who doesn't need to be told how to best help. You want to anticipate needs and wants. To this aim, you'll do a fair amount of listening.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You needn't put much effort into making yourself appealing. You're attractive because you just are. There is beauty around you and the more you appreciate, it the more you become a part of it.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 30). Your cosmic birthday bouquet features an array of meaningful relationships, some that vibrate your heartstrings and others that light a fire in your belly. Your ambitions will change, but once you've decided firmly, you'll stay determined until you achieve the marks you've set out for. Younger people figure into your success. Aquarius and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 17, 31, 36, 28 and 1.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "What do you have to say to a Libra having some tough online dating experiences lately? I'm emotionally raw, too introspective and dwelling on what people really think about me. Help me out!"

Mom said, "Don't worry what people think of you, because they don't." I think you're pretty astute to notice the lie in that. While it's true that people get pretty caught up in their own dramas, our brains form fast impressions about everything observed. People think of you, form opinions, judge... but is it really you they are judging? It's an experience of you at best. A version of you maybe, someone you conjured up to suit the moment, as is the way with the complexities of human interaction. There's a you inside, at the core, who can't be assessed by the crude tools people apply to process social discourse. That essential core of you is pure, immeasurable and far beyond the scope of human assessment. Can that idea help you disconnect your identity from the opinions of others? What they think about an entirely subjective projection of you isn't something you should take personally.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Whether she is defying gravity or letting it go, actress and vocal powerhouse Idina Menzel is the queen of iconic vocal moments. She's continued the streak with songs from "Frozen 2" that are sung around the world in many languages. Menzel is a versatile Gemini, born when Mercury, Venus and Saturn were in Taurus, the sign of the voice. Her moon is in entertaining Leo.
