Power Moon

Power Moon

The Capricorn moon of power structures will help us find the social order. We’re not like ants, born to understand our roles and built to naturally fall into them. We each must find our own way. We have to learn to understand one another and work at listening. To become powerful, become a listener. To become more powerful, become a better listener.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Not only is it natural to feel defensive around people who have a history of socking you when you’re not expecting it: It’s advisable. Likely this has to do with the soft jabs of a loved one. Arms up; protect your head; duck and cover.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a point at which too much conversation clouds the meaning of things instead of making it clearer. While some seem committed to talking things to death, you jump in and fix it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It takes a confident person to risk being misunderstood and maybe that’s partly why you’ll do it. Plus, you’ll learn more from people who are dissimilar to you than from people with whom you have a great deal in common.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When things get a little more colorful and dramatic than is comfortable, be grateful for it. Were you to be limited to a very confined and unvarying society, you would be quickly bored to tears.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Discipline is just not something you easily come up with on your own right now. Enlist the help of a coach, a champion or a supportive friend. Not only will you get results; you’ll feel loved in the process.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Before you get into the mix, remind yourself of your purpose. While you’re at it, revel for a few minutes in what you’re all about. Because if you’re not sure of this, someone will come along and fill in the blanks for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your big dream of the day may not be anything too spectacular; rather, it’s a small personal accomplishment or meaningful exchange that drives you to work deliberately and connect warmly with others today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t be surprised if, when you sit down to make a positive plan of action, negativity comes first. Work through the grievances. Once you give them airtime, they’ll go away.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fun-loving people are the best when fun is chief on the agenda. What about when it’s not? If their love of fun is stronger than their love of doing the job at hand, trust your instincts and get the right person for the job.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re an artist. This doesn’t always present itself in the way some people think about creativity, but there are so many ways to turn life into a beautiful experience. That’s what you’ll chase today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sameness leads to staleness. Seek variety and diversity. It takes an effort to mix things up, and you’ll probably meet with resistance from those more fearful than you. Do it anyway. Everyone will be better for it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s a day to read and learn. Social topics, in particular, will be lucky to know about. They’ll also be as exciting to read up on as any fiction, because this learning paves the way to new adventures.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 21). A few stellar choices will carry you up this year. Happiness is having a pure strong love in your life. You’ll put quite a lot of effort into establishing a habit over the next 10 weeks. After that, living the way you prefer will be nearly automatic. There’s intense competition in March and September; get serious. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 20, 5, 33 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: ”I’m a Libra born on Oct. 9. I’m wondering, as I go through much pain and change, if I will finally be able to cope. My boyfriend dumped me, and I almost feel like everything in life is going out of control. Also, I want to know, will I get over him if I still love him in a way, knowing that he made me unhappy sometimes?”

Cope you can, because cope you must! Your Aries moon makes every hurt feel like the first one all over again. This makes it difficult to move on. On the other hand, born under the resilient sign of Libra, I believe that by the time you read this reply in the paper, you’ll already be interested in someone new and have gone out on exactly one and a half dates. I see from your chart that you are friendly, thoughtful, sweet and extremely attractive. Love-planet Venus is in sultry Scorpio suggests that have more appeal than you know what to do with. Your firsthand knowledge of the way love hurts only makes you worldlier, adding to your draw. Your Mars is in Capricorn, suggesting that you are a hard worker and should concentrate on building a career, which will make you temporarily forget about your heartache.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Is Charles Barkley psychic? The basketball great is a Pisces with easy access to intuitive information, which he can use to help him strategize on the court, in his personal life and in his career. He and other Pisces people are constantly mentally sifting through information they know to be true, but they don’t know how or why they know it!
