HOROSCOPE

The Moon is the ruling planet of your sign and because you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, you experience two servings of the moon’s influence. As the planet of reaction, the moon is deeply tied with emotion. Being aware of the most minute emotional cues, you are undyingly nurturing and generous. While naturally a selfless giver, you still require the company of close loved ones to feel complete. As with any caring, emotional person, there always is a risk of becoming overly sentimental. Take care to not let your emotions overshadow your objectivity when dealing with situations.

While these waves cause deep emotion, they also lead to deep understanding, compassion and spirituality. However, make sure to ride the waters of emotion with care, as you run the risk of becoming moody or overly emotional.

You should be weary of the qualities of stagnant air, which can create an unemotional and aloof state.
