HOROSCOPE

The Moon is the planetary ruler of your sign, but because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also met with the influence of Pluto. The moon ties into your intuitive, almost psychic like, mastering of emotions, while Pluto fuels your inclination towards power and mystery. It is this combination that creates your unique personality, but it also creates a confusing struggle between your mind and your heart. Your happiness lies in a secure, loving relationship, where respect and loyalty are in abundance. Avoid your jealous tendencies to insure long-lasting relationships.
