AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.

Am I the only one new to the craft who knows you shouldn't cast a spell just for the sake of casting a spell? There are times in chatter where people pop up asking for the first spell they'll ever cast, all pumped and ready. Intentions are important and I feel a lot of people wanting an easy spell just want to play around without thinking. There should always be a reason. I feel sleep and very light protection spells are the only things I'd recommend. When I say something like that most of my peers droop their heads wanting a money or love spell, or something with bright colors and explosions. You must learn to crawl before you can walk. Enjoy feeling energy around you and in yourself, don't jump into the deep end too soon. There are consoquesses to your actions sweetheart.

By my experience, because I grew up psychically sensitive: everybody casts spells just for the sake of casting spells. They just don't know it. Once they do know it, they can direct it better, but I think everybody's already in the deep end. Reason before casting is to me like putting the cart before the horse.

How exactly are we defining "just for the sake of casting a spell," and "if you don't need to"?
Like, are one or both of you suggesting that one should not perform a ritual unless they have a very specific goal that they wish to accomplish? If so, how is one supposed to become competent as a magician? I used to perform pentagram-based invoking rituals all the time, choosing whichever element I felt like I could use a little more of in my life, mostly for the sake of becoming really good at pentagram rituals. And what about magical traditions which suggest performing the LBRP once or twice daily just for the sake of general magical hygiene?
I understand not supporting people running around casting all willy-nilly, but I believe that casting when you don't absolutely need to is a good thing, that way you're not still bumbling around like a noob when you have a genuine need for magick.

Leave them be, It's their life. Anyways you seem to be acting like you know, ''everything''.
Yes we all should have knowledge, and experience. But in order to gain knowledge we must first: Try.
We shouldn't do spells for the sake of it, but we should be allowed to do spells.
It is advised to not do spells until you have, knowledge. It isn't needed, but many do follow it. You shouldn't do spells alot, but if your a newbie you soon realize..experience and nature are your only helpers.
You said yourself, your a newbie. Your valid words, not mine. So don't judge orhers, unless you want to be judged, and unless you'll judge yourself.
In order to gain knowledge, you need experience. In order for experience, you need to experiment. This could go on, and on. It's there life remember, so everyone needs to start somewhere. Good luck!

Nothing is wrong with casting a spell as a newbie...you gotta start somewhere and build from there but basic knowledge of spell casting should at least be studied so that one knows the consequences of what one is doing.
I started with a good luck spell....it's easy and low risk and one can surely tell if one has had good luck during the day. If it works, then yay for you..and if it does not, then no harm done.

I'd like to add that you can't really know someone's intentions with casting a spell. Maybe they're ashamed of their intentions? Maybe they don't feel like sharing? And even if they do it just for hell of it, isn't it a form of practicing? Who's to say what's right and what's wrong?
But I do agree that willpower when casting spells is very important.
