Stop preaching, Scorpio!

ARIES (March 21 to April 20): There’s a dramatic feeling surrounding you during the full moon in your sign on Oct. 10. It’s time for you to create something wondrous with your vivid imagination. Be who you are no matter whom you offend. Chances are you will wow and woo many, beginning with a Virgo. You can learn a lot by observing the way people react to your strong and spicy personality.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): While the Sun travels through your house of daily work and health, it’s up to you to discover the beauty of routine and consistency. Instead of running around like a chicken without its head, try running around like a chicken “with” its head. A Gemini can teach you how. You are ready to slow down, open up, and receive – not easy for you, dear.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): The full moon on Oct. 10 falls in your house of friends, so try to take it easy on yourself if pals put you through the wringer. This, too, shall pass. Focus your emotional energy on a Leo who is tortured by feelings of love and of jealousy for you. You need to actively seek out some fire in your life, Gemini.

CANCER (June 22 to July 22): Saturn’s transit through your sign may make you feel as if all your hard work has been for naught. Nothing could be further from the truth. The universe is simply reminding you that you need to take a breath, pull back, and get some perspective on your crazy life. Escape your own world for a while with an Aquarius.

LEO (July 23 to August 22): Saturn is transiting your mystical house of the past, which means you may have to slow down the pace of a torrid affair or obsession. Reorient yourself to the new world you’ve created. A Taurus needs to catch his breath, too. Stop trying to turn complexity into simplicity. Let go of the easy cliches, and live in the weird space in between for once. Stop being so literal, Leo!

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): Jupiter in your sign may push you to hook up with somebody who reminds you of a family member or an ex-lover – but who, miraculously, isn’t! You can have your cake and eat it too … psychologically. Enjoy the icing on the cake with an Aries. Don’t psych yourself out too much by trying to read the mind of a potential lover.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): The full moon on Oct. 10 falls in your house of love. It may push you to really listen to your own desires and emotional needs, rather than be so damned practical about romance! A Sagittarius wants you to fly and be free. This fall, you can discover a part of yourself that you abandoned years ago. Vow to find yourself again.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): You’ve been acting like a crazy person the past few weeks, unable to slow down, but not moving as fast as you’d like to be. During mid-October you are at last able to find the perfect balance. You can rock steady with a Pisces without ever getting bored or tired. Stop preaching so much, and get your act together!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): You may not understand the changes you are being compelled to make during this cycle, but have some faith that there is rhyme and reason to it all. Resistance is futile! A Cancer will protect you if you are willing to leave your past behind. What’s really holding you there anyway?

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): You may be called a genius or a freak – or both – during mid-October. Just don’t expect people to have a mild reaction to you. A Scorpio is so unsettled by your sexiness that he may feel as if he is going to explode. The full moon on Oct. 10 is sure to ignite feelings of grandiosity as well as low self-worth. Breathe, baby.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): To what and to whom are you most attached, Aquarius dear? Mid-October is the time to answer that question, and be as brutally honest as possible. It’s time to get rid of the fluff – anything nonessential. A Libra may be the one luxury that you can allow yourself. Join the human race and admit that you’ve made one or two bad emotional investments.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20): Your avid desires and overwhelming needs are what make you human, baby. So please stop playing the role of a pod from “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” and express yourself fully and madly. A Capricorn wants you to need him. The full moon on Oct. 10 falls in your money house and should inspire you to put childish notions about the “beauty” of poverty aside (this is America, dammit).
