Giving Moon


The moon moves from Aquarius to Pisces, insisting that we answer the call of a higher purpose. The Sagittarius sun draws us out of ourselves and emboldens our actions. Those who need help will be more likely to ask for it, and those who have help to give will be generous. The exchange of goodness elevates every soul.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are no bad guys around you today, only people doing their best in an awkward situation. So you're doling out the compassion and trying to find the humor in all of this, too.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Much will depend on your ability to manage the expectations of those around you. One strategy is to keep some of your plans a secret that you reveal only on a need-to-know basis.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Matters of identity will get your attention. The story behind your name may be part of this. You'll also notice that your name sounds different to you when a certain person says it. Why do you think that is?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Good intentions will not always be enough to make goodness happen, but it's certainly a start. You will learn by letting your heart be open while you observe another person.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may feel ambiguous about making social plans. Even though it's nice to be asked, you'll be picky about where you go and with whom you spend time. This comes with the territory when you're trying to simplify your life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You won't be rich in self-control today, but you can still set yourself up for success by reducing the number of distractions and temptations in your environment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may perceive a partner to be the cause of your feelings (good and bad), when in fact the other person cannot induce any feeling that is not already in you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't feel that you have to be the leader at all times, but when you do take charge, it will be greatly fulfilling. Once you've decided on your mission, the group will rally behind you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Right now, holiday miracles are worth believing in. Magic can happen if you only believe hard enough. And you, more than any other sign these days, have the will to believe hard.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your compassion and patience will be called upon. Keep in mind that those appearing bad-tempered may not really be angry with anyone so much as ill equipped for the stressors of the season.


20-Feb. 18). It's better to under-schedule than over-schedule. People make mistakes when they feel rushed. You'll get the best out of others when you're easygoing about matters of timing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The system that brilliantly keeps you organized on an average day will not work as well today. You're in expansion mode, so expect that the rules will change and things will get a little messy.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 28). The confidence you earn from mastering a skill in December will seep into every area of your life. New relationships and joint ventures percolate. You'll have to choose between a professional and personal goal in January. Eventually, you can do both, but you'll have to show where your priorities lie first. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 32, 11, 14, 2 and 19.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You'll make new friends out of an effort to reconnect with old ones. TAURUS: Before you assess the practicality of a scenario, you'll consider the rush of feelings you get from just imagining it. Those feelings don't lie. GEMINI: You may feel fickle and insecure one moment, and then steadfast and independent the next, but don't worry. Someone loves your dual nature — you keep things interesting. CANCER: It's better to work on being more understanding and appreciative than it is to waste effort in chasing after the ideal. LEO: You're not the same person you were before, and the others will just have to adjust to this new version because you rather like where it's all going. VIRGO: People will reveal their true feelings in the way they greet and/or part with you. LIBRA: The best way to make sure a secret is safe is not to tell anyone in the first place. SCORPIO: Your inklings are correct. SAGITTARIUS: You're an excellent judge of character, but you may have a blind spot for the person who compliments you so well. CAPRICORN: You'll alternate between being happy and making happy. AQUARIUS: Give in. Joining 'em will be more fun than beating 'em, anyway. PISCES: Concentrate on someone, and you'll hear from this person shortly after.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Sagittarius and Pisces are a fire-and-water combo that gets steamy this weekend as the glow of the sun reflects off of the Pisces moon. Pisces brings poetry to the world of Sagittarius and can be irresistibly quirky in the process. Sagittarius helps Pisces stay on track with plans and goals by infecting Pisces with contagious enthusiasm and optimism.
