Judg­ment Moon The world is filled with cyn­i­cism and in­stances of peo­ple jump­ing to con­clu­sions on sub­jects they know very lit­tle about. Nowhere is this more ob­vi­ous than on so­cial me­dia. It’s why the lim­its you place on your ex­po­sure will pre­serve your peace and op­ti­mism, es­pe­cially while the moon is in Li­bra, the sign of judg­ment.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Re­cently, some­thing might have hap­pened be­tween you and an­other per­son that, in one way, sig­naled that one of you un­der­stood what the other was go­ing through. But in an­other way, it was of­fen­sive. So much lies in the in­ter­pre­ta­tion! Emo­tions need a rest.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your ex­pe­ri­ence of the world is unique and all yours. So don’t be sur­prised when they don’t seem to be on the same page. They might still get there. All that’s needed? A few flips.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Maybe the job is get­ting repet­i­tive. Or maybe your life is get­ting repet­i­tive. Though you don’t get paid for life out­side of work, it can be­come just as mo­not­o­nous as the 9-5 grind. But some­thing will break the cy­cle of rep­e­ti­tion. And that will please you im­mensely.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Things to­day will be the same as yes­ter­day, and yet you’re a lot dif­fer­ent – not a lit­tle, a lot. Why? An­swer this ques­tion and your next big idea is on the tails of it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What­ever led you to your love, you’ll fol­low it again and again. It’s not be­cause you think it will lead to your love; it’s be­cause you know it will lead to your rap­ture.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Oh! The same old ques­tions will come again and again... but you don’t have to give the same tired an­swers. Change it up. They’ll ask, “How are you?” And your cre­ative an­swer will bet­ter your for­tune.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties will be more fun than you an­tic­i­pated they would be. In­volve peo­ple who share your sense of hu­mor. It’s the magic combo. You can’t lose.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The over­ar­ch­ing feel­ing is the thing. If some­one picks up on the de­tails and tries to make a case, well... that may be sound in the­ory, but the­ory is not prac­tice. What’s real is what’s go­ing on. So: What’s go­ing on?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you can re­solve the his­tor­i­cal, you can re­solve the present. Bonus: Some­times this hap­pens with­out ac­tu­ally hav­ing to get your hands dirty in the present.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What you wouldn’t give for a clean slate. It’s the wish of ev­ery­one: Don’t for­get it. And the grace of so­ci­ety is that mi­nor in­frac­tions can be rewrit­ten and glossed over with the stroke of a wand. Re­ally! So just start new.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Run­ning into an ex is only fun if you hap­pen to be look­ing even bet­ter than you were. It’s why you give ex­tra ef­fort to the mir­ror to­day. You never know!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some­one is be­ing su­per mean to you. This goes way back. It’s not about you, but that doesn’t make it any eas­ier not to take it per­son­ally. Stand strong. The cos­mic forces are with you.

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Nov. 15). You are strong on your own, and yet you’ll also have a hero in your life this year. In 2018 you’ll make a trade that im­proves your lot. Also you may be will­ing to give some­thing up for love – but not ev­ery­thing! A brush with fame has a les­son in it. You’ll be build­ing a team in Fe­bru­ary. Pisces and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 3, 33, 39, 19, and 14.

AS­TRO­LOG­I­CAL QUES­TION: “I’ve spent the last six years in school get­ting my master’s and work­ing on my doc­tor­ate, and I still have no idea how I’m go­ing to make money. My sis­ter is a Pisces who never fin­ished col­lege, and yet she seems to al­ways make the smart choice. When I ask her about her de­ci­sions – for in­stance, how she knew to pick one job over an­other – she usu­ally just says she ‘just felt like do­ing it.’ That in­fu­ri­ates me.”

Let it in­spire you in­stead. Spir­i­tual Pisces some­times for­goes the process or rea­son and leaps into the realm of faith with ex­cel­lent re­sults. One has to have faith in one­self to take ac­tion. To be clear, this is dif­fer­ent than hav­ing faith that suc­cess is at hand. Suc­cess is an out­come, and of­ten out­comes are not com­pletely in the realm of con­trol. What is con­trol­lable is your re­ac­tion to cir­cum­stances. A con­fi­dent per­son doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily be­lieve that he or she will suc­ceed in ev­ery en­deavor. But a con­fi­dent per­son does be­lieve that there is a chance of suc­cess – and, more im­por­tantly, that what­ever hap­pens, he or she can man­age it. The con­fi­dent per­son trusts that the tools to han­dle life are ei­ther in­her­ent or at­tain­able: in other words, that the fail­ure, if it comes, will be bear­able.
