Change Week The change is going to come, and it's all starting this week. With three luminaries changing signs (including the ever-changing moon) and one changing direction, it's inevitable. Today is about noticing everything you can about the current state so …Read more. Leo Moon of Messes The forces of the cat will rule the early day, promising improbable jumps and landings in the action. Will anything get tipped over in the scuffle? If it does, the Virgo moon takes over tonight, insisting that everyone calm down and get to work …Read more. Rehearsal Moon This Leo moon would like to make a public service announcement: Thinking is rehearsal for what you might do. The theatrical moon understands the value of rehearsal. It's not something that merely happens once, twice or three times. A stellar show …Read more. Storytelling Moon The Cancer moon encouraged such an outpouring of feeling that some will feel slightly drained and drawn to the sort of practical tasks that don't require emotional investment. For those who care to recount the details of the past few days, the Leo …Read more.

Gratitude Moon


When presented with "before" and "after" pictures, do you often like the less polished "before" better? Think of today as the "before" picture. Maybe there is a lot you'd like to change about your world, but there's an awful lot of good in the way things are now, too. The grounded Virgo moon encourages appreciation and gratitude.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll win the challenge that's thrown your way this morning. It's as though the job was custom-made to cater to your strengths and develop an area of weakness at the same time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're too hard on yourself, expecting maximum productivity without giving yourself a break. What about excitement and fun? They're not going to sneak up on you. You have to actively make them a priority.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There's an idea in the works, not yet fully formed — this will be the answer that helps you improve your life. For now, just stay open-minded, curious and willing to make adjustments.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Playing games will sharpen your mind and skills, as well as bond you to your fellow players. Share the games you love with the people you love, and life suddenly turns sunny and sweet.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Much will be offered to you, and yet you're wise to be extremely discerning. Try not to accept anything that might drag you down. If it doesn't have real and lasting value, you don't need it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you're getting it wrong several times in a row, chalk it up to experience. Give yourself a break, and then try again. If you don't give up, you'll eventually improve.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When the things you do to make yourself feel better wind up making you feel worse instead, it's a sign that it's time to find more suitable ways to unwind and enjoy life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Gather up some positive thoughts to help you get through the hectic morning. Then, after lunch, something wonderful will happen as a direct result of your stellar attitude.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Luxury and comfort cannot bring you happiness, which is why it is pointless to pursue them today. What will bring you happiness is something to get interested in and excited about.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's like the world is a small school today.

Word will get around quickly, so it's important to behave in a manner you would want to be well known for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are generous, and you have good ideas that those you want to help would be wise to follow. You will help another person find prosperity and thusly improve the world.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There's something on your mind and heart, and you'll do well to quietly send it upward, asking for spiritual help. The prayers you say will change and empower you to do more than you thought you could.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 20). The huge project you take on will inspire you to rise to the occasion. You'll reassemble your team of supporters and add to the numbers in November. You'll make a grand entrance in December. February brings a political change. In this new climate, you can claim leadership over an area dear to your heart. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 14, 33, 28 and 19.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I think my sister is addicted to her psychic. She talks to her every month, and in between psychic consultations, she consults an online I Ching, tarot and the like. She seems not to want to make a single decision without asking her psychic. She even asks her psychic questions like, 'Is my husband cheating on me?' and 'Is my child skipping school?' She's a Scorpio, and I'm a Gemini. I don't know why her habit bugs me so much. I guess I'm just worried about her."

I understand your concern. Without question, the best way to find out whether your child is skipping school is to call the school.

Your Scorpio sister seems to have lost touch with her intuition. You won't be able to help her break her habit if she doesn't want to; however, you can share with her the criteria for a good psychic. A good psychic should help a person feel more in touch with his or her intuition, not less. A good psychic creates a safe place for spiritual connection and invites the highest good to come of it. A good psychic does NOT create dependency or make others feel powerless or in the dark.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Former "The Office" co-star John Krasinski is now a producer of two new NBC comedies. Born when the sun and the moon were in Libra, Krasinski is a talented diplomat, partner and team player with a special knack for healthy partnership and collaboration — qualities he'll also apply well as a husband to Emily Blunt and a new father to baby Hazel.
