Though the Capricorn moon is usually a good time for progress, today’s void-of-course lunar journey combines with Mercury’s retrograde in Leo and an opposition of Mars and Pluto to create a different kind of effect. It’s a one step forward, two steps back situation. If you don’t want to take two steps back, the best move may be to stand still.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You lift the hearts and moods of others just by showing up. It’s a lucky time for meeting fun people who also happen to be good for you to know on a professional level.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are those around you who act like the police of every situation. You’re not so worried about controlling other people’s activities. You have your own beautiful chaos to control.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t have to try to be original, because you already are. You can’t help it! No two people — not even twins — have the same fingerprint. You will leave your unique mark on the world.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone in your life has different preferences pertaining to personal space. Some like eye contact, others want hugs, and still others like to stay at a distance. You’ll be observant and hit the right note with one and all.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will not be confused with a neat freak anytime soon. That is, unless you devote several hours to handling a certain area of your home. This is the perfect time to get in there and get it done.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The information trail goes cold, and yet you still feel a burning desire for knowledge. You might see this as a chance to seek the deeper knowing that comes from your intuition.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have no way of knowing who will be able to make use of your talent and ideas. That’s why it’s important to advertise. Post your message where it will reach as many people as possible.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Troubled people will gravitate toward you. They sense your empathic nature, and they will tell you their problems. Don’t worry about offering help. Your listening ears are help enough.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your innate managerial skills will be put to use. You’ll sense who is the best person for the job, and you’ll know just how to state things to make the job appealing to that person.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one can be 100 percent confident at all times. You may struggle with your own fears, doubt and skepticism, but keep pushing on anyhow. In the end, you’ll be victorious over these feelings.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It will feel good to give to a loved one, especially when the person isn’t even asking. Also, on some deep level, you know that if you don’t watch out for the other person’s quality of life, it will go down for both of you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Not only will you be able to see into the future, but you’ll do so in vivid detail. All you have to do is close your eyes and imagine what will happen next. Use your gift to create the perfect action plan.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 11). You’ll dream big and then work backward to construct a framework for building that dream. Strong personal relationships are a source of fun and adventure in September. You’ll give a stellar performance in October. A quest to make the most of your money will help you afford a beautiful new lifestyle in January. Sagittarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 17, 20, 41 and 23.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I learned that someone close to me was not who he said he was. I’m stunned. I don’t see how a person can pretend to be one person when that is not who he is at all. Now I don’t know what to think or who to trust. Do certain signs tend to lie about themselves more than others? Because I would like to avoid that sign so this never happens to me again.”
There are many factors that affect the way a person presents himself. I do not believe that one can accurately blame an astrological aspect. Everyone has the free will to act in his own best interest. Lying is a personal choice. Even if there are astrological indicators as to why your friend felt it was necessary to mislead others, it would be very impractical for you to pinpoint and avoid them in the future. You would then have to do the astrological chart of everyone in the world. Instead, take the lesson. Were there any early warning signs you received to tip you off that this person was lying? Probably yes. Remember those, and focus on building your trust of your own intuition.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak shared about his journey from computer geek to cult icon in his autobiography “iWoz.” The same Leo love of entertaining that led him to bring novel devices to parties to amuse the guests has motivated his lifelong quest to bring a superior computing experience to people around the world. Wozniak’s natal chart is also influenced by many intuitive water-sign planets.
