By golly, people just like you!

You could sell friggin’ snow to the Eskimos today, not because they think they need it, but because they just like you. You’re friendly and helpful to everyone you meet, sort of like walking down the street in Hickory, North Carolina.

Nobody in my kindergarten told me to hold hands and stay together. It was get in a straight line, no talking to your neighbor, and keep your hands to yourself! I fondly remember juice and cookies, so I guess we were allowed to chew and swallow. With our mouths closed. And my kids wonder how I got this screwed up!

If ever there was a day to hold hands and stay together, this is it. Form a circle too. It could be the millionth one!
The Force of friendship is with you.

Monday, January 16, 2012.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Feelings have an unobtrusive quietness about them. Your emotions are under the influence of still-waters-run-deep Scorpio, but you’re still getting warmth and feelings of generosity from Venus. You’ll have tremendous staying power for whatever task is before you--as long as it’s not a superficial one. You’ll see it through to the end no matter what it takes. This is how Scorpio gets the reputation for intensity! That, and speaking with unfiltered truthfulness. Both are yours today.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You get a dose of sensitivity and intensity added to your emotions when the Moon moves into Scorpio right after breakfast. It’s a heart-healthy prescription for you. It leads you to connections built on sharing your feelings, not just your thoughts. Partnerships are highlighted with warmth and giving. Although you feel generous, you won’t be pressured into helping out of duty or obligation.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Surely you, the fast talking Gemini, will be the one to actually sell snow to the Eskimos! Your jovial friendliness today spreads smiles to those who forgot how. The Scorpio Moon’s intensity is a bit heavy for your tastes, so focus on the meet and greet group that needs your quick-witted enthusiasm. It will be subtle, but the afternoon has some delights for your relationships when Venus shows up with her charm and humor to open the gates of opportunity for you.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Get out your handshake, people are going to want to meet you. If you need to work with a group, or make a presentation, today’s the day. You’re generally happy with a live-and-let-live policy, however today you feel a strong desire to protect and ensure your personal freedoms. You’re very clear about what is your territory, and while you don’t mind sharing it (in fact you welcome guests), you don’t want someone getting possessive about your turf. With the Moon in Scorpio you’ll fight for what’s yours.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Don’t have indigestion for breakfast! Instead, share the thoughts you’ve been holding in with someone you trust. Then, around 8:30 a.m., it’s as if you’ve got a sign around your neck saying “Friendly’s.” If you need the cooperation of another person or group, it’s yours on a silver platter today. You radiate self-confidence. People want to buy what you’re selling.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The Scorpio Moon is pulling a desire for freedom, and an inclination to be generous, from Jupiter in Taurus and you will feel this strongly. You stretch your wings through your 3rd house of communications and the thirst for knowledge. A warmth and friendliness comes forth from you to everyone you interact with today. You take another step toward embracing the transcendent gift you have--to see the flaws, and love them anyway.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
It’s a perfect day to help someone solve a problem. Provide the different perspective that only your eyes and ears can offer. Others will accept because they see your genuineness. After 2:00 p.m., Venus quietly colors your emotions with warmth and the generosity of a big heart. You freely give, so you can freely receive. You’re rather keen on having your independence, but you also understand Libra’s destiny--fulfillment through sharing with another. Learning to surf with two on board!

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The Moon enters your sign at 8:33 this morning and immediately hits the ball across the court to Jupiter in your opposite sign, Taurus. A strong connection, even positively magnetic, is struck with generosity and well-being. You are ready to give to others freely, but only because you want to, not because you have to. With the Moon on your shoulder, your willpower is doubly strong. Go get what you want!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
The need for personal freedom (always on your mind) is highlighted today by the Moon’s entrance into intense Scorpio this morning. This will apply to your partnerships, where you feel warm and giving but you will strongly resist any hint of possessiveness. Closeness yes, you welcome it. In fact it’s a good day to strengthen your bonds and take delight in your relationships.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Your sincere willingness to help others shows in the open-hearted generosity you feel today. You have the benefit of Scorpio’s powerful intensity and Venus’ exquisite sensitivity to ferret out what needs to be done. It’s likely that you’ll do well working in a group. You understand their process. You guard your personal freedom, and, at the same time, you’ll stand for what you know to be just for others.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Your desire to be friends with the world radiates from you today. The new view of the world that you are formulating will likely have a broader spiritual base. This transformative period that has raised your consciousness is culminating three weeks from now. It’s then that you’ll get a good look at the changes in your self. Meanwhile, the doubts keep you questioning. The added intensity of the Moon in Scorpio can help you get to the bottom of things. The place where you know that only love matters.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
You feel the generosity of your spirit very intensely today as the Moon moves into Scorpio in the early morning hours. Willfully setting your sights on what you want, with some strong desire behind it, is what this Moon is all about for you. Your relationships mellow considerably this afternoon when your Pisces Venus shows up with a natural warmth that radiates from you to others, making the being together nice and easy. Let yourself know how much you are loved.

P.S. Watch for my Friday special, Date Night!
