Cancer Moon Message


The moon in the watery realm of Cancer suggests that you ride the day as you would a wave. If you tense up when the wave swells or crashes, your form will be off and you'll likely get hurt, too. The way to do it is to remain loose, letting your body adjust to the changes and absorb the bumps.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's a risk to remain unchanged, but it builds trust. Which is more important right now: building trust or going for the next exciting incarnation? Only you can make such a decision.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You might be impulsive when deciding what to do for fun or what to have for lunch, but when it comes to your money, you'll take the time to research and think things through.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No generalized compliments for you! You recognize and appreciate each person's unique talents and give acknowledgement in a way that conveys, "You've been noticed for the special person you are."

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You sometimes feel that your honesty buys you more than your share of trouble, but truly your karma is better for the effort. The truth is like a rubber band: the further it's stretched the harder it's going to snap back.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). An open mind is like a clear lake in which the heavens reflect and glisten. Prejudice, on the other hand, is a marsh. When heaven shines down in a marsh, it distorts the beauty of the sky.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While you figure out what everyone else needs, be sure to make your wishes known, too, because if you can articulate what you want, you can get it. A Libra will be instrumental in your success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The project you've taken on has come to an unexpected juncture. Part of you is afraid you'll have to start over, and another part wishes you could start over. What's really needed is a mentor. Get help.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some days you have to mentally coerce yourself to count your blessings, but you're so lighthearted today that gratefulness comes easily to you. The day itself feels like a blessing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll make a sacrifice or a tradeoff to keep a relationship in good standing. This is just part of what it means to be in a relationship. The best way is to do what needs doing and forget about it. Don't keep score.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your success secret is that you refuse to take anything personally, and therefore you are able to see the opportunities in each interaction that others can't see because they are too busy being offended.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're like a puppy with a brand-new shoe you shouldn't be chewing on: mischievous, daring, trying to get all you can out of this before someone takes it away.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Speedy judgments and assumptions are likely to cause people to overreact. You'll have to be the reasonable one. Step back and take your time in calmly assessing the situation.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 16). You've come a long way. Loved ones will show their feelings in just the way you prefer, and you'll let them celebrate you without feeling self-conscious. You'll open an exciting paycheck in October. You'll visit hallowed ground in December. January brings a reward that's been a long time coming. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 14, 38, 3 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My girlfriends say I'm boy-crazy (even though I'm 28 and haven't dated an actual boy since I was 17) because I tend to get crushes and obsess over guys instead of just dating them. The guy I like typically dominates all my waking thoughts, and I spend plenty of time analyzing our interactions to the subtlest detail. I guess my girlfriends are kind of sick of hearing me go on and on about this guy or that, because they practically staged an intervention, each one telling me in her own way that I need to chill out when it comes to guys. Is it just my Sagittarius enthusiasm gone wild?"

Sagittarius does love the thrill of the chase, and your outsized passion can be a lot to contain (thus the need to talk/obsess to girlfriends extensively about your love life). Infatuation is exciting indeed, but when it takes over your thoughts and life, it's a sign you're dealing with self-esteem issues. An external focus on these guys distracts you from finding your own internal source of validation. How can you love yourself better? Make it a point to feed your interests, build your skills and treat yourself with more loving attention and care.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Four Virgo luminaries in her natal chart suggests that Amy Poehler is the quintessential Virgo: organized, hardworking, detail-oriented and always striving for improvement. Poehler's moon in Leo, the sign of entertainment, is the mark of a person whose first instinct is to delight and fascinate others. Recently she made headlines doing so in a hilarious art-world parody in a commercial for Old Navy.
