The past is a good place to go to school and a terrible place to vacation. Sure, good times were had. Also, mistakes were made, opportunities overlooked and more. During this full moon preshow in Pisces, look back only long enough to make a summary of your recent lessons. Tomorrow, we push ahead with the full moon in fresh Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It won't be enough to do the thing once, although doing a thing once a day for the next four weeks will work wonders. Now the question is, how are you going to remind yourself?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your capacity to delight others is large and ever-expanding. You get such a thrill from seeing their smiles that the quest has become, by now, a sweet addiction.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's not a stretch to say that relationships matter more to you than anything else in life, or even more than life itself, since you gladly give so much of your time and breath to making them run beautifully.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). How readily do you forgive? If you do decide that someone needs forgiveness, you'll take it through a process. Your conscious awareness of this process will help you sort out today's action.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Generous and helpful, you have plenty to offer people. Avoid giving it in the form of advice though, especially the unsolicited variety. Most people don't even listen to the advice they actually asked for.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Age-old wisdom holds up for good reason. Truth endures. Well over a millennia ago, Plato said, "For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories." This still applies today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are certain people around who give you such a warm feeling that it's like the two of you are much better friends than your actual friendship history would suggest. It's OK because the feeling is mutual.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Laughing is intimacy. When you make someone laugh, they are connecting with you on a deeper than surface level — a level of truth, pain and vulnerability.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The reason not to participate in gossip is that afterward you'd feel dirty, and the next time you saw the person you'd spoken ill of, you would feel even worse. That's reason enough to stay out of it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's like all of your life is being run by a scientific inquiry. You'll make a prediction and then conduct an experiment to see what occurs. Be sure to record it all, because that will ultimately be your key to success.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's easier to make a thing happen when you want it so badly that you're having trouble thinking of anything else.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What gets confusing is when you don't know if you love a person, or you love your projected fantasy about who that person is. The question will have more relevance today when you're likely to be thrown by someone's behavior.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 30). Because you prize intimacy over power, you'll enjoy a sweet stretch for relationships in which the vulnerable sharing of feelings allows for continuously joyful connections. Your influence in a group will lead to money in November. You'll invest well, which leads to lifestyle upgrades down the line. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 49, 3, 27 and 41.
COSMIC QUESTION: "Virgo here. Why do I have to touch the pole at the end of my street every single time I pass it? If I'm on foot, then it's easy. But when I'm driving, I have to stop and get out and touch it and get back in. Stupid superstition."
Virgo is known for a vigilant quality of energy that can easily tip toward ritualistic behaviors. Such drives are, at their root, efforts to gain agency. Then again, you would be hard-pressed to find any human who wasn't trying to feel more in control of their personal realm. All the creatures are only trying to survive and thrive in whatever way seems most accessible at the time. Finding points of leverage and power is an essential part of this. Your brain has linked up touching that post with gaining a sense of control. Maybe it's nonsensical, but most people think plenty of nonsense every day. The particular brand of nonsense varies widely from person to person and can get very idiosyncratic indeed. Just chalk it up to your mind trying to gain a greater sense of control over your world and be compassionate with yourself. Now, look at the bigger picture. What would need to change for you to feel more in control of your scene in general?
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy 18th birthday to Maddie Ziegler the dance innovator, actress and alter-ego to the pop star Sia. Ziegler was born when the sun was in Libra, a Venus-ruled and graceful air sign that also happens to be the sign of artists and designers. Up next for Ziegler, more design collaborations as well as a starring role in the highly anticipated Steven Spielberg remake of "West Side Story."
