Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day
Last week was about spiritual longings, but this week, you arrive. The sun takes on the spirit of Pisces, the fish. This is the most magical, transformative time of year, where Jesus turns his men into fishers and water into wine. Purim is celebrated, and Dionysus reigns supreme. The moon cloaks herself in hard driving Aries, possessive and pleasurable Taurus, and giddy, sunny Gemini, an ascent towards the sun culminating of the brightest days. But be forewarned—too much of a good thing is not always wonderful, and decadence quickly turns to madness and dissolution. Make sure to keep a modicum of dramatic, stately, composure as you ascend to the most beautiful, mystical heights.
Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: What you say is just as important as how you act. You’re feeling restless, even more than usual, but remember words can be just as powerful. Use them wisely.
Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: You really have it all this week, but make sure to appreciate the watery, dreamy, unreal realms underneath your fecund rootstocks. This is where the magic happens.
Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: This is a beautiful week for you, as the moon waxes toward your sign. Wait for it, though, and you’ll be rewarded rather than jumping the gun.
Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: This week is great for your career, the culmination of things you’ve been waiting for. Just make sure to hold it together through your elation!
Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: You especially don’t like the winter months, as you are the embodiment of the sun. Your soul is yearning for warmth. Be heartened, you’re almost there, but getting ahead of yourself won’t get you any closer to your destination.
Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: Partnerships and other people of all kinds are being emphasized for you right now. Make sure not to lose yourself in the clutter, as you are the independent virgin. Let others come to you as they will love your coveted logic, hospitality, and service. However, don’t martyr yourself.
Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: Work is being emphasized for you, especially the nitty gritty aspects of it. Believe it or not, you can love what you do if you take a hard look at what it is that you love to do on a day to day basis. Be less concerned about seeking balance and beauty in your work life, and task yourself with loving the inner tick of your work. Surprising partners can help you to this end.
Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: This is an extraordinary time for you to act and take more control over your finances. Slow and steady wins the race, and rash action almost never wins in finance.
Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: As the centaurian archer of the zodiac, you’re ever inclined to thrust ahead. But remember that battle is fought and won before it is even adjudicated, and nursing the flame within is preferable than seeking to set fire to outside phenomena.
Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: A little fire in the belly never hurt anyone, especially you. It will empower your proverbial climb up the mountain and make your journey all the more enjoyable and successful.
Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: Though you are the visionary of the zodiac, with the greatest gift of hard knowledge, communicate this to others with the heart of a mystic. As Arthur C. Clarke said, great technology and great magic are indistinguishable.
Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Is it always magic for you? Yes, but this week you get a dose of all the other elements. Hang on for the ride, fish jumping, flying towards the sky.
