HOROSCOPE

While the moon is the planetary ruler of your sign, because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also influenced by the planet Pluto. The moon is the planet of emotions and nearly psychic intuition. Pluto’s influence is quite different, as it is focused on transformation, power and control. The combination of these very distinct influences causes an internal struggle between your mind and your heart at times. This may be frustrating, but you will find your stresses to lessen when you find the close, loyal relationships you seek. Be careful to avoid your tendency to let jealousy affect your close relationships, as this is one of the negative aspects of your planetary influence.
