Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Forget being efficient and getting a lot done this week. Ignore the Virgos, who work as if they four arms and two heads and can do twelve things at once. Multitasking is just not your friend right now. In order to get anything accomplished, be single-minded. Its okay to have a long list of items on your agenda, but only tackle one at a time, and dont get upset when you dont get as far down the list as youd planned. Working faster than a steady pace, youd likely spread yourself too thin, and end up doing a half-assed job. Remember, having to re-do something you screwed up will end up taking way more time than it would have to do it slowly and carefully the first time around.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Theres no question youre hot.You can probably seduce whoever youd like; the combination of your charisma and confidence are very hard to resist. The real question is whether you should. Remember, ethically, you ought to make an effort to leave anyone youre involved with (on whatever level) at least a little better off than how you found them.When considering drawing a new person or three into your tangled web, keep that in mind. What beautiful gift will you give them that they can take with them as they move forward through their lives?
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) With fuel supplies tight where I live, its become an expensive, time-consuming pain in the ass to fill up the car. Theres a cynical part of me thats glad; for some people, nothing else would encourage them to honestly assess how much they actually use their vehicles, or to consider other options like carpooling, public transport, or biking.
This kind of thoughtful conservation is where we should be at, anyway; its simply too bad that it takes a fuel shortage to get us there. Sometimes people need a little push to change their ways. Luckily, this week, you have the power to give it to them. ------
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your plans are dough, rising. The best thing you can do right now is to simply leave them alone.
They should be able to carry on entirely free of your interference. Theres a right moment to dig your hands back into them and help the process along, but youve got to be able to recognize when that is. Getting prematurely involved could royally screw up the process, forcing you to start from scratch again. I know its difficult to resist the temptation to keep checking on things, and trying to help them along; nevertheless (unless you want to set yourself up for loads of frustration and needless hard work), that is what you have to do. ------
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You know what you like. Its actually pretty specific.
So why are you willing to delude yourself that something totally different might do in a pinch? Forcing yourself to like something has never worked before.Why the hell would it be a good idea this time around? Youre just setting yourself and the others involved up for a huge disappointment and a lot of wasted time. Its kinder to just nip this in the bud, admit that youre never going to go there, and move on to something or someone that will actually be able to hold your interest. ------
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) The problem with being so adaptable is that its easy to be whatevers expected of youfor a while. However, this kind of flexibility only gets you into trouble, because sooner or later your real personality, needs, and desires will surface. In the end, you have to create your own boundaries and stay more or less true to yourself. Its okay to bend a little; compromises are inherent in virtually every kind of relationship. However, you must stop yourself from going too far. Just because you can bend over backwards or twist yourself into knots doesnt mean you should. ------
Aries (March 21-April 19) Anything goes as long as no one gets hurt. I give you permission to use this Full Moon in your sign to explore the wildest aspects of your natureas long as you also take pains to make sure you keep everyone involved from getting hurt (emotionally or physically), including yourself.That shouldnt require more than an extra step or two, or a word here or there.These are simply steps you shouldnt skip, and words that shouldnt remain unsaid. Once theyve been done and said, thoughgo nuts. Its going to be a blast. I, for one, cant wait. ------
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Im a big fan of taking calculated risks.Thats why Im advising against this one. By my calculations, shimmying further out on that limb isnt worth the jeopardy youd put yourself in. Sure that apple on the furthest twig is the ripest and juiciest on the whole tree, but its really only slightly riper and juicier than the one youve got right here.Why risk life and limb for something you may not even get (even if the branch doesnt break, you could knock the apple down), and may not be perceptibly better than the sure thing youve already got? Unless youve got a better answer than I do,I suggest you quit while youre ahead. ------
Gemini (May 21-June 20) I hate it when people put shit off with the excuse, Im just waiting for the right moment.The vast majority of the time, there are no right moments, except those we create. Sometimes one happens, but we dont realize it until after the fact.The only consistent way around this is to trust in yourself and just make stuff happen, in your own time.You know this. However, this week, there might actually be a few perfect opportunities you can recognize in time to take advantage of them. Im not too worried; if you miss one, I know youre perfectly capable of creating your own. But keep your eyes open. Catching a few of these could put you well ahead of the game. ------
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Make a decision and stick to it, already. All this hemming and hawing is pointless and unnecessary, and likely to piss people off.Also, dont get flustered when they get impatient with your desire to engage in needless debate. For whatever reason, youre feeling wishywashy.
Please try to ignore this feeling. None of the choices youre making are all that important or earthshattering. They certainly dont merit this kind of thought or indecision. Just pick something, arbitrarily if necessary, and stick to it. Even if it turns out to be the wrong choice later, its still not that big a deal. ------
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your ruling planet, the sun, is in the sign of balance, Libra. Use this time to work on bringing equilibrium to your life.You dont want your ego to be so big that it presents an obstacle that keeps you from real connections with other people. But recognize that its also a source of strength, and you need to tap into it sometimes. Being a cowardly lion might be endearing to some, but not so much to the people you prefer to attract. Stick up for what you believe in, make noise when necessary, and keep your little kingdom running smoothly.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Might as well make yourself comfortable. Youre going to be here for a while.Youre stuck in a spiritual traffic jam thats likely to keep you from getting anywhere fast. Simply turn off the engine, get out and stretch your legs, and look for someplace to pee. Avoid getting frustrated, impatient, trying to figure out what the problem is (its nothing you can solve right now), or feeling anxious that youre missing something important.You are where you are. Make the best of your circumstances, and if you get bored, take the time to plan what youll do when the congestion clears up, and youre able to hit your top speeds again. Im not sure you really know where you ought to go once you can go anywhere at all. Do you? If not, this is the perfect time to figure it cut.
