Moonshine Horoscopes — Cancer Full Moon Edition

By Len Wallick

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Don’t despair should there be conflicts at home, or conflicts over shared resources. Neither should you blame yourself if some people are determined not to get along with others. When you get right down to it, you are the only person you can control. Therefore, keep up your good work on your own personal evolution into an ever more mature and responsible human being. Continue to notice the impressive power you have to change your focus and choose your point of view. Further the devotion you have shown towards regulating your responses. Do not doubt that others have noticed (and are impressed by) the work you do on, and for, yourself. Most of all, look within for ways in which you remain attached to parts of your personality that no longer suit who you are in the process of becoming. Pay special attention to times when you feel the need to protect yourself from real or imagined slights. — By Len Wallick

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — At your very best, you are as good an example of compassion as there is anywhere. You are also among the few who know the difference between compassion and empathy. In addition, you can almost certainly express that difference with clarity if you need to. If anything trips you up, it might be the practice of what you express. To make sure you are on your game to the max, here is a checklist for you to review as a guideline: First, do your best to get the rest you need when you need it. That’s especially true this time of year. If ever there is a time when you are not yourself, it is when you are fatigued. Next, keep track of when you are in judgment. Even when your proficiency for assessment is spot on (which it usually is), it’s important to consider whether you are being hasty. Finally, remember that your passions are just as valuable an asset as your compassion is. — By Len Wallick

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Showing enthusiasm is good on the whole. Sharing enthusiasm is nearly always better. If there is anybody who can spread the cheer, it’s you. The key is finding a vehicle through which you can express your zeal in a collaborative manner. In all likelihood, the best way to convey your ardor is through a collective enterprise with creative and artistic means. While there is no reason for you to rule out other types of endeavor, you will want to consider what you have to lose (as well as what you stand to gain) as either a competitor or a solo act. While it is all well and good to distinguish yourself from the crowd, you should also contemplate whether there would in fact be any net gain at all if you were to win the world while alienating friends. Even though your style is impressive and convincing, you also have substance — which is most apparent only when pooled in participation. — By Len Wallick

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — In some way or another it is your time to shine. The question is how. Being a proverbial flash in the pan would not do justice to either all the hard work you have put in or the talent you have developed. Make it your business to establish a legacy while in the spotlight. You stand an excellent chance of turning a temporary triumph into an enduring reputation to be proud of. In order to make the most of this time in your life, be aware of how each moment can (and usually does) make a difference. While first impressions do count for a lot, try to make every impression count. Don’t become careless when in the company of those familiar to you. If ever there were a time to turn over a new leaf, even in marginal or damaged relationships, it is now. This does not mean you should fake it in order to make it. Be truthful. Be trustworthy. Above all, do everything you can to make others feel safe in your company. — By Len Wallick

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Seek hidden resources. Go beyond searching for coins in the couch. Look inside yourself for the sort of proficiencies that usually come to the fore only in do-or-die situations. See if you can develop a means to access your spontaneous creativity at will. In all probability, the first step towards developing your improvisational potential will entail building your confidence in areas of your life where you have had setbacks. Let no cause be lost. Even if it means starting small, start over immediately whenever you feel either defeated or discouraged. Remember that the greatest success stories are not distinguished by lack of failure so much as a refusal to give up or give out. Once you attain a level of confidence that is defiant in the face of either uncertainty or fear, you will inevitably have the encouraging experience of doing better than you expected — precisely because you tried again. — By Len Wallick

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Trust the power of your imagination. Don’t dismiss even your most far-fetched fantasies. It’s probably been more than a decade since you last had the power to manifest that you now possess. That power is not so much conferred by material resources or even your industrious productivity; rather, it is your virtue that now makes nearly anything possible. While your moral integrity may not be tangible, it is for you the first and most important requisite to realizing your fondest dreams and highest aspirations. Therefore, make it your first priority to discern and do the right thing in even the most trivial of situations. Even when it appears as if you are putting yourself at a disadvantage, always play fair. Good fortune comes and goes. Both bad and lucky breaks always even out. Being consistently and persistently ethical, however, will provide you with both a profound spiritual advantage and momentum that cannot be overcome so long as you press it. — By Len Wallick

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — If you feel as though you are in a bind, let your need for comfort guide you towards finding your way out of it. This would mean recognizing and addressing your own needs before attending to the satisfaction of others. This does not mean you should neglect any obligations you have taken on. Nor need you fail to fulfill any commitments you have made. Rather, you should mediate on your own behalf just as you so often have for the sake of others. In other words, seek to negotiate as only you can. Rather than compromise your wellbeing, seek a compromise that will assure it. Have faith that those you compromise with will show faith in your ability and determination to return value for value given. If, in seeking the relief that you need, you do not find the reciprocation you want, you will at least have come to a greater understanding of which relationships are worthy of you, and which are not.— By Len Wallick

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Love will out. So long as you align yourself with loving causes and loving ways, even the coldest hearts will not be able to keep you down for long. This you know. Of all the truths your perceptive heart has felt in the course of your life, the prevalence of love has surely been one of them. The question remains, however, whether you show your hard-earned understanding of love and its ways in how you show your feelings. You know all too well that fear of having your feelings hurt can drive you to hide your love away from anyone but yourself. You are also very aware of the futility of concealing your affections, even when you are tempted to justify such behavior as somehow noble. Therefore, act while you can, even if it means taking an emotional risk, to express your love in ways that demand nothing in return from those with whom you share your heart’s wisdom. You will be glad you took the chance.— By Len Wallick

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Forgiveness is among the greatest gifts, both for those who receive it from others and for those who afford it to others. For that reason alone, you might well want to make forgiving your own personal cause for the foreseeable future. Speaking of the future, you might also want to either recover or fortify your native ability to forego worrying. For if you can bring yourself to release attachment to any resentment regarding that which is past, you will almost surely feel more like yourself. In addition, if you can more consciously cultivate your innate faith that your best efforts will result in things turning out for the best, you will almost certainly behave more like the magnanimous and generous person you were born to be. This is not to say that it is always easy to forgive. You, above all, know very well the temptations of indulging entitlement and grudge. Fortunately, you also know how to respect what and how others feel, when you don’t entirely understand. — By Len Wallick

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — If you crave being treated as a person with authority, you now have it within your power to attain satisfaction on that count. You simply have to go about getting that gratification in an effective manner. Much as with respect, authority is not something you can simply demand. It must be earned. In your heart of hearts you know you would not be content to be just another empty suit. Therefore, rather than pressing others to meet your needs, impress them with your willingness to meet theirs. The gratitude you receive in turn will confer more authority than any amount of money can buy. Furthermore, the influence you gain by devoting yourself to service and justice will make you a far more powerful figure than those who stoop to conquer and coerce. Finally, to assure that attaining your aspirations does not lead to your being conflicted, begin now with a concerted effort to resolve any resentment you may still hold towards authority figures in your life. — By Len Wallick

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Many are those who go to a lot of trouble and expense to have what some call a “peak experience.” Fortunately, you need not be among them. Indications are that all the thrills you want will soon be seeking you. All that’s required on your part is making your efforts consistent with your purposes. To do that, begin by updating and being clear about what purpose you have for your life from this point on. It could very well be that you have already been what you previously wanted to be, done what you already set out to do and gone where you originally aspired to go. If so, you may need to at least review (if not reset) your priorities. Once that review is completed, you will be better able to evaluate whether your choices and actions are efficiently coordinated and working together smoothly towards what you have not yet been, done or gone. A little tune-up is all it should take for you to find new life in your life. — By Len Wallick

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Do not fear that which is easy. Divest yourself from any conditioning that makes you feel struggle is necessary to be a good person or to do good things. Try on the idea that the best things in life should return even more energy than you put into them. What some call a slippery slope need not lead towards disaster, at least not for you. You have enough experience to know what doesn’t work and what will not serve to affirm and nourish your mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health. For example, alcoholic beverages should not be confused with medicine. Nonetheless, you need not be a puritan or a prude either. It’s possible to be authentically devoted to worthy endeavors without wearing a hair shirt. It’s also distinctly probable that you can get along very well without the need to constantly be critical of yourself. The world is a hard enough place as it is. Don’t be hard on yourself. Let yourself relax into your every day and try going with the flow. — By Len Wallick
