HOROSCOPE

The ruling planet of your sign is the moon, but as you are born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, you have a double dose of the moon’s powers. The moon is a deeply emotional influence, which powers emotional intuition to such great extents that you often may feel psychic about the feelings of others. Your strong tie with emotions explains why your feelings of security are dependent on strong, loving bonds. Your caring ways and helpfulness will insure strong relationships, but be careful to avoid confusing nurturing acts with smothering ones.
