Libra/Libra Rising* (Sep 23-Oct 22): I balance. We are. Full Moon on October 14 continues to have a potent influence from your opposite sign of Aries. I am. With other directed Venus surveying swamp lands in Scorpio, your darker desires have rarely been more important. You can no longer afford to ignore your shadow side. Courageously peer into what you've been suppressing. Begin with that urge to go along to get along. Venus in Scorpio means that a charm offensive will not work. Envelope an "I am" Aries approach. Trust that your best self comes through decisiveness after a moderate period of reflection on multiple perspectives. Ideals spoken with swagger sweep the attention your way. However, it is the action taken that makes the difference between being a bloviating armchair philosopher and a real person with unmet needs wanting that to change.
Your Best of Musicians are Librans John Lennon, Flea, Julie Andrews, Chubby Checkers, Dizzy Gillespie, Giuseppi Verdi.
Aries/Aries Rising* (Mar 21-Apr 19): I am. The Best of you comes in that old Popeye statement: "I yam what I yam." Borrowed from the Old Testament, burning bushes, inter alia (Latin for 'amongst other things'), you are what you are. But, in this 3-D reality, how can you deeply know who you are without a relational "We Are"? That's where loving Libran lays down to give your life joyous context. Born to stir us up, get us excited about taking on challenges. Your individual spirit glows with the illumination of 1,000 points of light. Especially with fire-breathing Mars in Leo and your fifth house of joy, self-determination and creativity. To top it off, the Full Moon was giving you stones of steel and a heart of gold in Aries. At your year's midpoint, you can equivocate for only so long before you do not feel yourself to be authentically soulful. Your best self comes through getting to the bottom, the heart of things in the moment without a rigid adherence to tradition or precedence.
Your Best of Musicians are Arians Chaka Khan, Tracy Chapman, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross and Henry Mancini.
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising* (Oct 23-Nov 21): I desire; we have. Funny metaphysical thing about desires; they mean you do not have. They represent what drives you to want more. More of what? What do you want to possess? Your opposite and security-driven sign of Taurus possesses (redundant pun intended) a preponderance of your answers. After control, you desire soul-searing intimacy. Time builds your trust of those bonds beyond physical hooking up (again another Taurus creation). With Taurus' guardian angel (Venus) in your sign, you have excessive magnetism. Please do not misuse. Those you want to possess have lower defenses to your altered charms. If a female scorpion, your yang hits bright and intense reds of domination. If a male scorpion, you can soothe any and all savage beasts with well-placed soft sounds. Your KC best comes in when you know your security (read: financial) demands, and yet you know the impermanence of all physical things (read: transcending Taurus). You evolve beyond your quietly rebellious ways in direct proportion to your inner security.
Your Best of Musicians are Scorpions Mahalia Jackson, Katy Perry (we share the same birthday), Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell, Helen Reddy, Art Garfunkel.
Now, here's the message of your complementary sign, Taurus:
Taurus/Taurus Rising* (Apr 20-May 21): I have. Depending on where you land in the American caste (read: class) system, your values have an excellent story arc that bends toward the stable and center. Oh, well. Extending the basic egocentric message of Aries into the bounty of springtime, you can easily use your exceptional mind to keep the status quo. When bohemian raised, you'll eschew the capitalists. When spoons have silversmiths and maids to clean them, you'll patronize the aristocrats. Every 18-19 months, your overseeress Venus will not have any of your rigid dismissals. The last staunch examination from the Goddess of joy, delight and pleasure was October 8-November 18, 2010. Good psychological work done, if and only if you review seemingly incomprehensible decisions made a year ago. Veracity is, as veracity does ... sort of like in vino veritas (in wine, there's truth). You are best as a realistic touchstone, untouched by the capricious sway of public trends and popular culture.
