The extroverted Sagittarius Moon prompts dramatic conversations as she harmoniously trines messenger Mercury in expressive Leo. The excitement builds as a rock-and-roll square between assertive Mars and explosive Uranus rattles us with lightning-like shocks of awareness. We must find ways to keep the energy moving or it can suddenly erupt. Thankfully, the Moon’s shift into conservative Capricorn at 4:37 pm EDT should help contain the instability.
You may catch someone off guard with the way you exercise your self-determination today as unpredictable Uranus electrifies your ruling planet Mars. Naturally, honesty is your best policy, but your delivery style may be more important now than what you actually say. Don’t state something for the shock value alone or you could lose the trust you gained by telling the truth.
Someone’s erratic behavior could mess up your day and turn your schedule upside down. Fortunately, you’re able to handle the situation today, but you would prefer others to stick to the original plan. Don’t waste your energy worrying about what else could go wrong; instead, concentrate your attention on what you can do now to minimize any additional problems that might arise.
Your nervous energy may create a few headaches today, yet there is a simple solution: stay in touch with your own feelings no matter what happens. If you bottle up your emotions they are likely to explode, so get out and move your body instead of sitting around waiting for a meltdown to happen. It’s better to express your feelings in small doses gradually, rather than precipitating a crisis by revealing everything all at once.
You may keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself today because you’re embarrassed by what you want. Although you believe that your little secret is safe, you’re probably more transparent than you think. Your closest friends will suspect that you’re holding something back, but they know you well enough not to pry. Thankfully, your current shyness will pass if you can just get over your fears and insecurities. Your smartest strategy is sharing your inner process with a trustworthy friend.
You can be so forthright today that you might shock others. Ironically, your intentions aren’t likely any different than usual, but there’s no reason to hide anything now. Your old defense mechanisms have been worn down and you currently don’t have the strength to build up new ones. Just remember that everyone doesn’t need to know every miniscule detail. Paint your picture in broad strokes for the best effect.
It’s not easy to find an emotionally safe place to stand today, for you might feel as if your life is out of balance. You believe that you should remain silent and continue to do your job, yet you may be compulsively driven to even an old score. Avoid the temptation to act impulsively because you could do something that is totally out of character. Consider less radical alternatives to express your anger. You’ll be able to keep your dignity intact with a more moderate response.
You have entered a very social phase and you would enjoy being around more like-minded people, but you aren’t interested in losing your individuality in the crowd. You might even try to do something that enables you to stand out from everyone else. However, before initiating action that you’ll regret, rethink your motives. Putting yourself in the spotlight may not be as smart a move as it seems in the moment. Be your authentic self and nothing else.
You assume that you know what others expect from you at work, and you want to please them. Unfortunately, you could take on too much now, making it difficult to decide what to do first. Still, you could lose your temper today if someone criticizes how you are doing your job. But instead of overreacting, channel your emotions into the tasks at hand. You are wiser to focus and get as much done as possible than to add to any more drama to the current situation.
You may think that you know how to fix a problem in a relationship, yet your solution could make matters even worse now by stirring up unnecessary anxiety. Ironically, your answer may be quite intelligent, but executing your plan falls short of your high expectations. Rushing to the rescue isn’t the smartest strategy now; move slowly and give yourself enough time to consider the alternatives before committing to one path.
You like to lean on conservative tactics when your life gets too crazy. Mechanically going through the motions is one way to buy time while things settle down. Unfortunately, reverting back to your old routine won’t work now because something must change for you to feel satisfied. You may be tempted toward extreme solutions like turning everything upside down all at once. However, taking lots of tiny steps is a much better strategy than attempting one gigantic leap before you’re ready.
You want others to acknowledge your contributions at work today, but this desire for respect may bring more frustration than satisfaction. It’s challenging to stay in touch with your emotions while also fulfilling your responsibilities. It feels as if you can only do one or the other, but not both. Nevertheless, the most practical approach is to keep modifying your actions as needed. Practicing flexibility now is your secret weapon.
You have more on your plate than you can handle today and too many tasks can distract you from finishing anything at all. You might have plans with family or friends that have to be changed unexpectedly due to circumstances that are beyond your control. Even if the situation seems urgent, you still have job-related responsibilities that cannot be ignored. There may not be any quick fixes available; multi-tasking the best you can is your only viable option.
We may feel a heightened sense of urgency today as the dramatic Leo Sun harmoniously trines electric Uranus. Hidden tensions suddenly come to the surface, which can upset the status quo. However, we are also excited about the possible changes and may even take unnecessary risks to make something happen. The flighty Gemini Moon joins spontaneous Mars midday to raise the stakes, but things calm down when the Moon enters quiet Cancer at 9:11 pm EDT.
You are in your element today as the Sun in your 5th House of Fun and Games connects with brilliant Uranus in your sign. Instead of doing things in a familiar manner, you are motivated to try something new. Your mind is buzzing with exciting ideas now, and you are itching to see how they translate into the real world. Obviously, you would like to succeed, but you’ll be quite satisfied if a good time is had by all.
You have a lot of details to handle today, but you’ll probably figure out a way to do something more fun instead. For example, rather than finishing a project you might channel your creativity toward planning an escape from work. Ironically, the craziest ideas are the ones you’ll most likely get away with now, so don’t be afraid to step outside of the box.
You may get a chance to do something that is not part of your regular routine today, but it will probably turn out differently than you think. Perhaps you are invited to attend a social event, only to discover that your assumptions about those in attendance need to be revised. Fortunately, you are able to shift gears easily and adapt to unusual circumstances. You may be pleasantly surprised as long as you remain open to the unexpected.
You’re not thrilled about being thrust into the public eye today, but it’s probably a good idea to hide your annoyance. Overcoming your resistance enables you to surprise others with your stellar performance. However, playing your part can bring recognition by your peers or even a raise in pay, so don’t say no just because the thought of being on stage makes you feel uncomfortable.
This can be a most memorable day for you because you can get away with being as weird as you want. Your need to do something totally outrageous may reach a point of no return today, provoking you to take sudden action. But rather than being sensitive to other people’s needs, maverick Uranus connects with the Sun in your sign, encouraging you to do as you wish. Nevertheless, there is still an unspoken boundary. Don’t go too far over the edge now or you’ll have to spend time later cleaning up the mess you make.
You have something that you need to do at work today and you won’t let someone get in your way without putting up a fight. Fortunately, you can emerge as the winner if you are honest about your intentions and don’t scatter your energy. Don’t think twice about standing up for yourself, even if you would rather avoid conflict. Hopefully, the skirmish will be over quickly and you’ll be able to get on with your job once the air is cleared.
Unconventional friends can inspire you today because you view them as your “Get out of Jail Free” card. You may feel restrained by the current social circumstances, making it difficult for you to escape the boredom of the day. However, it’s easier to step out of the box when you’re hanging out with people who are innovative, radical and eccentric. Nevertheless, it’s a mistake to expect someone else to make your move for you; take a chance and let your freak flag fly.
You can be the hero who saves the day if you are willing to move beyond your fears and share your unorthodox solution to a problem at work. Although you might expect others to reject your idea because it’s so wacky, they may quickly approve because they like how unusual it is. Don’t hold your punches now; state your case as clearly as possible and then let go of your attachment to the outcome. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results.
It’s time to resurrect your dreams of taking a holiday to an exotic destination now that the Sun is visiting your 9th House of Travel. Its easy trine to irrepressible Uranus in your 5th House of Play turns an unrealistic fantasy into a reachable goal. You don’t need to fill in all the details yet; just declare your intentions and start making plans now. Before you know it you’ll be on your way.
You may need to deal with a few surprises in your personal life now, but ultimately everything should turn out just fine. Your need for stability on the home front runs up against your desire for more personal freedom. Normally, you aren’t thrilled by the idea of unexpected change; however, today you are relieved when the stuck energy is finally released. Don’t hold on to old fears because they will only stand in the way of your potential happiness.
Your key planet Uranus forms a superconductive trine with the Sun in your 7th House of Partnerships today, electrifying your communication. You have an opportunity to express yourself in a way that might reveal a part of you that you have been hiding. Fortunately, a relationship can be strengthened now when you take a risk and share what’s in your heart, even if your feelings are radical. Don’t hold back; this is a chance for you to be uniquely you.
An exciting breakthrough at work is possible today and it could ultimately affect your finances in a positive way. You have an excess of innovative ideas now that you can bring to the job. But don’t waste time making plans or telling others what you intend to do. Your intuitive channels are wide open, so get busy and follow your instincts.
The determined Taurus Moon prompts us to stand firm in our convictions, but we may be growing tired of holding on to a particular point of view. It becomes nearly impossible to remain so stubborn once the Moon shifts into adaptable Gemini at 12:34 pm EDT. While this shift into the sign of curiosity increases our mental activity, helping us process more information, an erratic Mercury-Uranus aspect can shake things up and promote carelessness.
At first it seems as if others are telling you to slow down today, but this familiar advice to an impulsive Aries isn’t about your speed. The emotional Moon’s entry into your interactive 3rd house encourages you to react instinctively, but your intuition can lead you astray now. Although you’re tempted to respond right away, it’s smarter to deliberate first. Waiting for a while before speaking your piece will make everyone happier and leave you without regret.
You don’t want to do anything until you’re ready to do it. If someone else attempts to change your timetable, you might overreact. Try softening your position today; it’s not helpful if you become so locked into your own schedule that you can’t respond rationally to an intriguing opportunity. Accepting an unexpected invitation can bring an exciting social interaction that improves your outlook on the day.
The Moon’s entry into multifaceted Gemini can be quite confusing, especially as it raises your feelings closer to the surface. This normally wouldn’t be a problem, except it appears that you want contradictory things that might require you to proceed in two different directions. However, you might be more successful by postponing your decision until your mental clarity returns. If you can be comfortable with your ambivalence, then nothing needs to be changed for now.
Your anticipation of the future is likely more intense now than the events that actually follow. However, no matter how you look at it, you’re in for significant changes. Don’t panic; it may take time to put the big pieces in place. During your preparation process, it’s crucial to stay in the present moment and handle each situation as it arises, rather than worrying about what you might have to do tomorrow.
You are ready for a bit of fun now, even if you still have plenty of things to do. Keep in mind that it isn’t wise to avoid your responsibilities, for they will continue to multiply over the next few days. Grab a bit of enjoyment when you can and then get back to work. It’s all too easy to overextend your lunch break, so let the good times roll for a limited amount of time before returning for another round of serious business.
You have a lot to manage today as the Moon moves into your 10th House of Social Responsibility. You want to do things right, but you may get distracted by interesting conversations with unusual people. There’s nothing wrong with being curious as long as you’re willing to take the time to ask questions in a sensitive manner. However, don’t be overly concerned about what others think; just concentrate on your path to success.
It’s hard to know if you should be jazzed about what’s coming next or concerned that you recently missed your chance. You can sense that big changes are lurking just out past your perceptual limits. Nevertheless, you cannot wrap your mind around this elusive situation today. Although you may need to face your anxiety, remaining flexible is more important than following a specific agenda.
The Moon’s shift into your 8th House of Deep Sharing today gives you a chance to dig beneath the surface. However, the lightweight Gemini Moon could still leave you feeling slightly unsatisfied. Pushing too hard can set you up for disappointment now. While others may be able to match your passion, they won’t be able to sustain it. Be persistent; your patience will pay off when everyone else catches up with you in the days ahead.
You stand to learn something important about yourself when you actually take the time to listen. But you may grow bored of someone else’s stories today as the restless Gemini Moon rattles your 7th House of Relationships. It’s ironic that another person can get on your nerves, yet also offers such an important lesson. A quick escape is tempting now, but staying present in the dialogue can ultimately change your perspective for the better.
You are easily distracted today and may be unable to stay focused on your work. It’s hard to keep your thinking in perspective because your mind is jumping all over the place. Don’t try to suppress your runaway thoughts by force. A smarter strategy is to grant yourself permission to ride a carousel of ideas and feelings. Think of this as a mini-getaway; your job responsibilities will be patiently waiting for your return.
You could be asked to offer your impression about someone you know. But the level of energy it takes to engage in a discussion — even in just sharing your ideas — might be more than you want. Your avoidance tactics won’t likely be very effective now, so you may as well stop trying to put off the inevitable. A little procrastination is harmless, but too much can lead to unnecessary trouble. Ultimately, it’s best to just say what’s on your mind.
Your thoughts are running astray today and you can frustrate yourself by thinking that you have the power to rein them in. However, it’s possible to calm your nerves by diverting your attention. Watch a movie or just relax to your favorite music. And remember, these distractions are not long-term solutions; they simply shift your focus for a while. Be patient; the nervous energy will run its course and settle down over the next few days.
The Sun fires into the midsummer sign of Leo the Lion, marking the first day of a new astrological month. In the northern latitudes we feel the radiant heat warm our hearts, prompting us to let our love lights shine. Meanwhile, the Moon enters earthy Taurus at 12:57 am EDT, reminding us to stay in touch with our senses. However, a sobering Mercury-Saturn aspect and a fantasy-prone Sun-Neptune alignment alert us to the contradictions we may face.
Although it’s been difficult to reestablish your confidence lately, things are now beginning to improve. Naturally, a shift in your attitude won’t occur overnight, but you could feel more positive day by day. Just let the current events unfold while affirming that better times are on the way. Believe it or not, the Sun’s entry into your 5th House of Creativity today may be enough to chase away the clouds.
The Moon’s return to your sign can put you in touch with your feelings while the Sun’s entry into your 4th House of Home and Family turns on the streetlights for your walk down Memory Lane. But there’s no use in holding on to childhood perspectives anymore, especially if they reinforce your concerns about scarcity. Remember that the universe is overflowing with unlimited possibilities, so show up with a smile and do what you can to transform your fears into love.
You might overcompensate today and show only your very best side. But your positive attitude could come across as false if you sound blindly optimistic. It’s of no value to hide the truth now, even if it’s more than you think others can take. Don’t get bent out of shape over the wrong things; stick to the facts and let others take responsibility for their reactions.
You might feel relieved as the bright Sun leaves your sign, taking the spotlight off you and allowing you to work quietly behind the scenes. But you don’t want too much isolation because the Moon slips into your 11th House of Social Networking today. You wish you could just make up your mind and follow your agenda, but you’re being pulled in two totally different directions. Ultimately, you will be happiest if you go with the flow now instead of trying to hang on to the illusion of control.
You are naturally resistant to change and may not want to engage with what’s coming around the next corner. Nevertheless, your anticipation continues to build now because you know that you’re on a new course and can’t wait to see where it leads. The Sun’s shift into your sign today initiates a highly active phase for the next month. But don’t rush the creative process; everything will unfold exactly on time.
You aren’t happy if someone is keeping information from you today, but thankfully you can handle the situation skillfully because the willful Sun and trickster Mercury are traveling through your 12th House of Secrets. Even a difficult experience can quickly morph into a positive one if you exude confidence, rather than doubt. You can change the game now by preemptively exploring the hidden realms of your subconscious. Happiness comes from the clues you find buried deep in the shadows.
You want to be free of the responsibilities that have been holding you back recently. Fortunately, the brilliant Sun’s entry into your 11th House of Friends encourages you to act boldly in social situations. There’s no need to panic and take a risk, but creating a sound plan that is followed by decisive action can be an unbeatable combination.
It’s tricky if someone assumes that you will always drop your personal priorities when asked. You wouldn’t mind offering your help, but you don’t appreciate the pressure of being told what to do. There’s no need to say yes and jump right in. Others will get by without you immediately coming to the rescue today. Taking time to consider all your options before responding may be enough of a cue to convey that you don’t want anyone to take advantage of your generosity.
Perhaps you are dreaming about the future in order to avoid dealing with the promises you made. Your intentions may have been sincere, but your time is running short now and you don’t know how you’re going to fulfill your obligations. Keep in mind that even the smallest molehills seem like mountains today. Don’t make any sudden changes to your overall strategy yet; wait a few days to see how the new landscape takes shape.
Having faith in yourself is crucial, but too much confidence inflates your ego. Even the most surefooted of you goats can slip if you’re moving too fast, and an overabundance of bravado today might be enough to make you careless. Don’t give reality a chance to teach you a lesson in humility. You’ll reach your ambitious goal if you focus on each step along the way.
Everyone is playing a part in your movie now that the dramatic Leo Sun is in your 7th House of Others. Unfortunately, you may be growing weary of someone’s affected behavior. You crave sincerity and truthfulness, but could feel as if you’re currently being shortchanged in your relationships. It will be a lot less stressful if you accept the fact that others are probably giving all that they can. Be appreciative of what you have today, instead of wishing for more.
You would like to have more free time at your disposal today, but you may have already overcommitted yourself in the chore department. Running errands and helping others could prevent you from following your fantasies. But don’t complain about your obligations; just doggedly finish what you can. Thankfully, if you apply yourself diligently during the day, you may have time for more pleasurable activities in the evening.
The Moon enters the boundless realms of watery Pisces at 1:12 am EDT, turning down the volume on our thoughts. The sweet perfection of a wonderful fantasy can grab our attention as the imaginative Pisces Moon conjuncts nebulous Neptune. We’re entranced by the lure of those magical things which cannot be seen in the real world. However, the Moon’s difficult aspect with karmic Saturn in the evening reveals the gulf between reality and our dreams.
You may be feeling somewhat deflated today, as if you’ve seen something you truly want yet know you cannot have. You could even grow annoyed with yourself for falling victim to your own unrealistic expectations. However, your frown can transform into a smile once you understand that you are the source of your confusion now. The truth may not be what you wished for, but it can still set you free.
You want to be on your best behavior today, but you still could get yourself into trouble if you believe that you can fix everything. Nevertheless, it’s tempting to overestimate the positive results of your actions. You appreciate a new opportunity, but may become frustrated if it disappears as suddenly as it arrived. Even so, there’s no reason for discouragement to come between you and another good prospect. Fortunately, your irrepressible dreams continue to pull you toward success.
You might not be able to justify starting so many activities now because your responsibilities require that you follow one specific task through to completion. Unfortunately, you’re feeling restless and more inclined to jump from one project to another. Ironically, narrowing your focus onto a single goal can actually open new avenues for exploration, so don’t be so eager to beat the system and move on too soon.
You would like nothing more than to live in a free-spirited world of sunshine and flowers today, but reality can’t live up to your fantastic expectations. Unfortunately, the Moon’s visit to your 9th House of Big Ideas isn’t very helpful if you need to focus your attention on more practical issues. Set aside a bit of time for aimless daydreaming, but then come back to earth and get busy with your work.
You could have the most amazing vision today, and by demonstrating patience and follow-through you may even be able to produce something special. Even if you’re not Beethoven or Rembrandt, a lack of artistic skills need not stand in your way. Although you would like your work to be appreciated, it’s more important now to be creative, whether or not anyone else notices what you do. Remember, it’s currently about the process rather than the finished product.
You can drive yourself crazy today if you try to narrow your attention on solving one particular problem. Unfortunately, the more you attend to details, the more your mind escapes the confines of the current situation as forced logic morphs into fuzzy thinking. Instead of approaching the current dilemma from a logical perspective, just imagine the desired outcome and start off in that direction without worrying about what you’ll do next.
You’re eager to share your ideas at work, but they may not be ready for an unsuspecting audience yet. It’s like a dream that makes perfect sense until you start to tell it to someone else — and then it quickly fades back into the shadows. Paradoxically, even your most sensible plan grows fuzzier as you elaborate on the details. Skip the wordy explanation today; you can bring others up to date in a day or two.
You really don’t want to waste time discussing trivial subjects today, but ironically, you don’t seem to be able to avoid it. You would rather place the endless stream of words on hold in order to intensify a current emotional dynamic. Keep in mind that you may have to engage in superficial conversations just to make it through the workday. It’s not an either/or situation; you can still make time to explore more meaningful topics later with someone you trust.
You’re enthusiastic about taking a journey, yet uncertainty is beginning to take root and you don’t understand why. Worries about your family or concerns about your own emotional security may prevent you from traveling anywhere, now. Fortunately, you can go somewhere without ever leaving home. The advantage of a mental excursion is that no one will even know that you’re gone. You can explore the distant reaches of the universe in your imagination while on the job and still return in the wink of an eye to answer the phone.
You aren’t averse to floating around in the realms of your imagination; however, you start to feel anxious if you go out too far in the process. You may struggle today if there’s no obvious way to return to solid ground, but your fear is more of a problem than the actual situation. You can avoid stress by consciously staying connected with your work. Be creative, but don’t fly so high that you get lost in the clouds.
It may seem as if you are losing touch with reality now, but this perception is only an illusion. People can’t see your inner process, so they don’t understand that you’re actually being very pragmatic today. You can take advantage of this temporary confusion since you don’t appear to be threatening to anyone. Be assertive and push for what you want. You might be pleasantly surprised at the results.
You are very smooth at shifting metaphysical gears and slipping in and out of the real world so fast that no one even notices your absence. Even heavy responsibilities won’t stop you from enjoying your mini-escapes to other realms today. But consider scheduling a block of time for your mental adventures, instead of trying to squeeze them into short moments here and there. Stretching your mind into imaginary places is healthy as long as you also get your work done.
The ambitious Capricorn Full Moon at 2:39 am EDT reflects our need to succeed at whatever we choose to do. But its opposition to the yielding Cancer Sun reminds us that we don’t always have to be in charge. Our desire to gain control over irrational feelings may be temporarily satisfied when the Moon shifts into emotionally detached Aquarius at 4:29 pm. Quicksilver Mercury’s alignment with Uranus provokes change by adding instability to mix.
Even if you want to stay home, today’s Moon in your 10th House of Public Responsibility indicates that you have a lot happening at work. You might have agreed to one too many projects and now you have to show up, even if you don’t feel like it. Thankfully, a methodical approach and consistent effort positively impact your progress toward reaching your goals.
You may be more determined than ever about taking an upcoming trip, even if your plans seem to be in jeopardy. Instead of just working harder, you will also need to think smarter. The Full Moon in your 9th House of Adventure is motivational, yet a breakthrough can’t occur if you’re unwilling to step outside of your safety zone and try something new. A calculated risk may be necessary to make something big happen.
You might not want to reveal everything you know today, because withholding information could give you an advantage in dealing with others. Even if you try to talk your way out of a complex issue, you won’t be able to avoid some pretty tough questions now. But don’t expect any straightforward answers because there aren’t any. Nevertheless, if you want a relationship to work, you need to go deeper into your emotions. Shared intimacy is a reward that you must be willing to work for on a regular basis.
Today’s Full Moon brightens your 7th House of Relationships, stirring up a bit of trouble or excitement. A current partnership could run into a wall that requires you to focus on your emotions and communicate what you’re feeling as clearly as you can. If there’s someone new in your life, resolving a touchy conflict now can set the foundation for what comes next. Either way, you’ll do better if you respond directly from your heart.
You need to maintain consistency in your daily routine, but it’s challenging if your heart isn’t connected to your actions today. You are only able to pretend for a while before your behavior has a negative impact on the day. Nevertheless, the practical Capricorn Full Moon illuminates your 6th House of Habits, telling you not to make any drastic changes to your regular schedule. Hold steady to your course; you’ll gain traction again soon enough.
The Full Moon lights up your 5th House of Self-Expression today, prompting you to reveal your feelings rather than analyze them. But your key planet Mercury nervously aspects high-strung Uranus, making it tricky to find the right words. Instead of trying to respond spontaneously as you’re experiencing an emotion, let it pass. Share what’s going on only after you’ve had time to process what just happened.
You’re eager to shine your light at work now that the radiant Sun is illuminating your 10th House of Career. However, the Full Moon occurs in your 4th House of Foundations, indicating that a situation at home needs your immediate attention, too. You might think that you can’t do everything, but your logic need not stop you from trying. Be innovative and look for solutions that are outside the box. Ultimately, you’re capable of a lot more than you currently believe.
Today’s sobering Capricorn Full Moon floods your 3rd House of Communication with data that might be overwhelming to integrate. The intensity has been building for a while, giving you the chance to prepare for the hectic pace of events. Don’t hesitate to lean on friends if you need support. Surprisingly, they will respond more positively than you expect. It may take a few days, but you’ll be able to get the rest you need.
You have one foot in the past and one in the future today. The restrictive Capricorn Full Moon falls in your 2nd House of Values, binding you to old beliefs and traditions. But trickster Mercury is buzzing in your 9th House of Expansion, tempting you to leave everything behind and make a mad dash forward. Unfortunately, your natural tendency to aim high means that you could overshoot your mark. Focus on reaching a conservative goal now, instead of falling short of an unrealistic one.
Someone with authority may require your support today. Thankfully, you’re sympathetic to other people’s pain as the Full Moon sensitizes your 1st House of Physicality. However, you might also try to hold someone else’s angst distant from your own feelings to protect your heart. Unfortunately, this defensive reaction can prevent you from being in touch with your emotions. Consciously listen with an open mind and then respond honestly from your heart.
Today’s serious Capricorn Full Moon occurs in your 12th House of Destiny, foretelling the enduring consequences that your current choices can have. However, it’s easy to place too much importance on making your decision now and not enough on following through with concrete action. Don’t be so quick to talk about your plans; instead of putting your energy into unnecessary chatter, let others find out about your new direction from what you do.
You may think that others are trying to trick you into putting aside your personal agenda and following their plan as the Full Moon reflects the needs of your 11th House of Team Effort. Even if you’re an integral part of a workgroup, you might feel isolated if your ideas differ from everyone else’s. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to honor your instincts now and do what feels right. Don’t succumb to peer pressure just because you want to feel connected to others.
The Sun in emotional Cancer is restrained today by a stressful square to stoic Saturn, requiring us to withhold our feelings. Ironically, chatty Mercury enters boisterous Leo, encouraging expressive communication. But Mercury aligns with spacey Neptune, indicating that our words may not tell the whole story. Additionally, the Moon’s shift into fiery Leo at 5:42 pm EDT motivates us to be outgoing, but playful actions might actually hide our fears.
Resentment can grow out of frustration if you can’t figure out how to bring strong feelings out into the open. Your regular channels of communication may be blocked today, leading you to internalize your unexpressed feelings. But your inability to say what’s on your mind has less to do with external circumstances than with your need to process a lesson that you have been trying to avoid. The obstacles won’t seem so overwhelming if you are willing to face the truth.
Now that your life seems to be moving in a positive direction again, you aren’t eager to have to slow down for any reason. Nevertheless, easing off the gas pedal is a smart idea because you could lose control if you’re taking the curves too fast. Although you might try to keep up with all your current projects, circumstances could dictate otherwise. Be wise and practice some self-discipline before things get out of hand.
You cannot waste energy and get away with it today because you are under pressure to get a lot accomplished and there’s very little margin for error. You don’t have much of a choice; you must pay attention to taskmaster Saturn as it gives you a stern reality check. However, just listening to the message is not enough. Narrow your concentration so you can focus on the most critical matters first.
You may retreat from a social situation today because someone hurts your feelings, even if it’s unintentional. You could take a setback so seriously that you just want to stay home and be by yourself. However, withdrawing is not the most intelligent strategy now. Instead of concentrating on your disappointment, figure out how to improve your productivity. If you are accomplishing what you set out to do, you’re less likely to have time to be bothered by the inconsiderate actions of others.
Although you may be the first one to say you want to have fun, it’s not that easy to set aside your responsibilities in favor of pleasure. Usually, you can easily discuss the alternative plans before determining the best way to handle the current temptations. However, your tendency is to keep your misgivings secret today. Push up against your resistance and take a risk. Others won’t judge you so quickly if you share what’s on your mind with them.
You are determined to maintain your integrity now by doing exactly what you promise, but distractions and obstructions continue to alter your course. You may be excited to head in an unknown direction, but you are on a mission and every setback brings more frustration. You can gain a lot of strength by staying on your spiritual path, rather than wandering around aimlessly. Remember, you cannot reach your destination if you stop to explore every alternative along the way.
It’s not apparent where so much resistance is coming from now, but you could bump into stone walls no matter which way you turn. Even your friends that are normally helpful seem to be blocking your way today. Thankfully, you have a secret weapon that you can use to your advantage: your ability to wait. Patience, combined with unflappable determination, is your ticket through this difficult obstacle course.
You are following a path that you have been down before. However, you discover that even paved highways have fallen into decay and are difficult to traverse. No matter that you were previously moving along smoothly, now every step is a small victory and you need to work hard to gain more ground. Today’s progress may feel good but will probably leave you exhausted. Don’t take on too much; it’s better to do one job well than to do several things haphazardly.
You do what you can to put your best foot forward, even in light of discouraging news today. It isn’t easy to overcome a setback just by changing your mind. There are other concerns about the people you love and your role in the community. You have a lot to think about now, but rest assured your perspective will be better tomorrow. Allow a couple of days for things to turn around before reassessing the situation.
Your somber attitude may be misinterpreted today as incurable pessimism; however, you don’t feel as negative as you appear. You understand exactly what’s required to reach your goals and are willing to do whatever you must to deliver on your promises. However, others may express their doubts now, but don’t let them talk you out of your beliefs. Approach the future with a realistic outlook to prevent unnecessary disappointment later on.
The connection between your current inability to express yourself freely and others holding you back might be more challenging than you think. In fact, your creativity may be squelched by Saturn’s square to the Sun. Be careful; don’t jump to conclusions today or you could waste a lot of energy incorrectly blaming others for your dilemma. Taking total responsibility for your own actions is a healthy place to start.
It doesn’t feel good if a friend suddenly withdraws his or her support today. The cold shoulder you are receiving doesn’t seem to be an appropriate response to your hard work, leaving you feeling angry and confused. Don’t waste time or energy complaining; instead, take the high road and finish what you started. The more you stay focused now, the easier it will be next week when the challenging Sun-Saturn alignment begins to fade.
The Moon’s shift into emotionally sensitive Cancer at 12:12 pm EDT prods us to reflect on our need for security. But we can overreact just like the Crab at the seashore — we’re afraid of being washed away by the changing tides as we approach tomorrow’s New Moon Eclipse. Meanwhile, the Moon forms difficult aspects with erratic Uranus and potent Pluto, bringing intense emotions to the surface that provoke worry about losing control of our lives.
You may be panicking because you think that you’re running out of time, but it’s smarter to wait a day or two before taking any drastic measures. Don’t overreact; it’s not the best time to rush ahead and show everyone how well you can handle an emergency. There’s no need to try to inspire others with your courage. Instead of mustering up false bravado, observe your emotions without trying to prove anything.
You probably have quite a lot to do, but others may not realize how busy you are today. You’re not interested in being in the spotlight now, so working quietly behind the scenes suits your mood. However, it’s not that you’re purposefully trying to avoid recognition; you just don’t want to waste energy seeking attention. There’s nothing wrong with graciously accepting acknowledgement for your contribution.
Your moods are rapidly fluctuating today and every time you make up your mind something happens and your feelings shift again. You could be overly concerned with how others interpret your instability now, but you don’t really have the ability to change their perceptions. Instead of trying to fix something that’s beyond your control, concentrate on being true to your values. Wait to share your opinions until your emotions settle down.
The Moon’s return to your sign today can fill you with pride or it can raise fears that you would prefer to avoid. Either way, be ready to go on a ride. It’s best to handle your feelings as they arise or they will just get in the way of the next emotional cycle that starts after tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse. Relinquish your expectations; maintaining an open mind will help to make everything flow smoother.
It’s okay to keep to yourself today, for you could benefit from some quiet time to listen to your heart. It can be challenging to hear your own voice if you’re busy running around for everyone else. It’s not your fault if people are pushing you to perform. Instead of feeling like a dancing bear in a circus, do what’s best for you now. Others will probably forgive your current need for privacy once you show them what you accomplished.
You might confuse others with your scattered energy today and inadvertently draw them away from their chores. Although your intentions are good, you’re not interested in setting the agenda for everyone else. But before you claim that you don’t want the extra responsibility now, consider the practicalities involved in the trade-off. It may be smarter to negotiate for what you want than to just walk away from the situation.
You might set yourself up for disappointment today because it seems like you’re willing to take care of everyone at work. However, you shouldn’t spread yourself too thin, even if you care about others a whole lot. Try weaving an invisible protective shell around you so you don’t get pulled off track. You’ll probably do fine in the long run, but your current feelings of scarcity can impede your progress. It may feel like a stretch to change your attitude, but you certainly have the power to do it.
You must stay focused on the present moment instead of holding on to an old dream that gets in the way of your current happiness. If someone questions your life strategy today, avoid falling into the trap of feeling the need to defend your goals. However, keep in mind that clinging to your past or dreaming about the future doesn’t leave you with much time for now.
It seems like everyone wants to spend time with you now because you know how to have fun while still remaining emotionally sensitive. However, you can avoid the hot seat today by redirecting the subject of a conversation away from you and onto a friend. Your cleverness may get you through the day, but don’t set aside what you should be nurturing in your own heart.
You don’t like it when a friend or partner is holding out on you. You prefer others to be forthright and say what’s on their minds; otherwise your imagination transforms the unknown into something worse than the simple truth. Unfortunately, your desire to know another person’s feelings could drive your own emotions deeper into hiding. Relax your intense curiosity; an indirect approach may be the perfect catalyst to trigger a necessary conversation.
Your desire for an intellectual discussion may be thwarted today as other people’s feelings keep cycling back into the conversation. You might try to steer the topics away from nonfactual biases. But your attempts to modify the natural flow of the group process could anger someone, eliciting the very same emotional outbreak you wish to avoid. Instead, allow the dialogue to meander naturally without imposing your agenda.
If you believe that a co-worker is trying to take unfair advantage of you at work, your swift response today could catch him or her off guard. Sometimes you are more forgiving, but now you could overreact if you feel that you’ve been pushed too far. Don’t be afraid of a power struggle; just keep in mind that your compassion is your most effective weapon.
The insistent Aries Moon provokes strong reactions, but it’s difficult to sustain a feeling once the moment has passed. Clever Mercury challenges feisty Mars, stirring up even more unrest. Thankfully, the Moon’s shift into uncomplicated Taurus at 4:52 pm EDT helps settle our agitated emotions. Though the stabilizing Taurus Moon lures us toward simpler pleasures, the Sun’s sextile to expansive Jupiter focuses our attention on the distant horizon.
You’re likely to step on someone’s toes as mischievous Mercury aspects warrior Mars. You might not even realize that your behavior is reckless because the self-directed Aries Moon encourages you to act first and think about it later. Remember, an impulsive response can get you into trouble because your immediate reaction might be off the mark. Wait until next week to make any major decisions if you can.
You are able to anticipate the Moon’s return to sensible Taurus later today, and you want to make the most of it. Opening your heart to your desires is a healthy strategy, but you may find it difficult to distinguish your attractions from what’s absolutely critical. Make separate lists for your needs and your wants to help you prioritize what’s in front of you.
You can’t prevent the noisy words from buzzing in your ears today, even if they don’t offer the hint of a solution. Messenger Mercury is hyped up from its aspect to angry red Mars, firing your thoughts into a stream of consciousness. But the emotionally turbulent waters morph into a gently meandering river later in the day. Although your sense of urgency might fade, your conviction won’t. Don’t put off making a big decision if you already know what you want.
You appear as if you are strong and silent today, so others may not realize how lost you’re feeling. Your thoughts are running around in circles like a hamster on a wheel, making it difficult to reach a sensible conclusion about what’s happening. Your strategy is to keep your insecurities quiet rather than acknowledging any confusion. Although you’re correct in believing that you should only share your business concerns on a need-to-know basis, discussing your fears with a trusted friend can help you feel much better.
Although you’re pushing yourself to finish a big project, it looks like it might take a little longer than you first expected. You may be tempted to blame someone else for your delay, but the current obstacles are most likely in your way because of you. Listen to the wisdom of the universe and slow down your pace now while you can still solve the problem.
Try to accomplish a lot early in the day since you could become more lackadaisical with the way things are when the Moon enters your 9th House of Future Vision. Your accurate perceptions grow fuzzy, making it impossible to decide much of anything. You might think that waiting will help you understand things better. Although you would prefer to be more practical, the day may still hold a few surprises for you.
You don’t like being put on the spot, especially if it’s on your own territory. You may not be able to express what you’re feeling because you can see things from several points of view. The smartest response today is to take the course of least resistance. Luckily, you can make any performance a successful one. Keep your personal opinions private until you are absolutely sure of your final answer.
You might exhaust yourself today as you run through a mental obstacle course over and over again. However, each time you try to handle the resistance in the same manner, you believe that your strategy will work. Unfortunately, you’re wasting valuable resources by relying on old tactics. You may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome if you do something radically different now.
It feels as if you’re running out of time so stop procrastinating, sort things out and initiate your new plan of action. Don’t fret if there are still miscellaneous details to handle. You should be able to fill in more missing pieces as you move along with your strategy. However, it’s important to take advantage of the combustible Aries Moon in your expressive 5th House before the energy mellows later this evening.
You may be quite eager to get going today, but it’s not yet time to jump the gun. Don’t rush anything; you will intuitively know the exact moment when you should make your move. Keep in mind that your mental preparation is a key ingredient in creating success for your current enterprise. You are being tested to determine if you can narrow your vision and concentrate solely on accomplishing your goals. Stay aware of your process and nudge yourself back on track if you’re lured off course for any reason.
You are able to connect with almost anyone today and, more importantly, you have lots of fun doing it. Unfortunately, you could also waste precious time doing things that are not critical to your goals. It’s wise to rein yourself in early on or you could lose control of your schedule. Fewer distractions now make it easier to find the satisfaction and success that you seek.
You may be ready to move ahead with a collaborative project today, or you might try to create something special on your own. Luckily, you receive kudos for your current efforts and can gain enough recognition to make your new venture worthwhile. But exercise caution, nonetheless, for you could become so enamored with your own ideas that you cannot clearly judge the potential value of your plan.
The Moon rushes into impulsive Aries at 4:23 am EDT, reflecting our need for action. But the Moon’s square to the emotionally protective Cancer Sun has us wondering whether to blindly run ahead or consciously retreat until we feel safer. Still, the Moon’s conjunction with wild Uranus provokes us to overcome our hesitancy and risk uncertainty, while her late afternoon square to unrelenting Pluto indicates our struggle to maintain our positions.
Although you are able to charge forward into the unknown, it would be wise to consider your options before you find yourself in over your head. Your usual way of overcoming fear is to jump into a situation as you feel the adrenaline building. However, the Moon’s shift into your sign today allows you to be uncharacteristically sensitive, making you more aware of the potential problems ahead. You can quickly change your plans along the way, but a bit of forethought is still advised.
You could be so energetic today that you think you must hide your enthusiasm or you might upset the delicate balance that’s holding everything together. However, denying your feelings will probably increase the intensity of what’s happening, rather than alleviating it. It’s true that a total lack of self-restraint may exacerbate a problem, but your response isn’t limited to all or nothing. Be smart; revealing your emotions gradually will prevent others from being overwhelmed.
You Twins are quite capable of following two tracks at the same time. You want your friends to be open and honest as they tell you what they need from you today. But simultaneously, you are afraid that their words are hiding unexpressed feelings. You might even be tempted to act foolishly as you try to expose someone’s hidden agenda. However, there’s no reason to force anything now since the truth will become apparent without your panicky reaction.
You want others to see your courage in action today, motivating you to bury your feelings and push beyond your usual limitations. Your satisfaction is dependent on your public appearance, leading you to hide your anxiety so effectively that others think that you are fearless. But there’s no need to trick anyone into believing that you’re a superhero. Just quietly do your very best, and the results will speak for themselves.
You are excited about all the possibilities for growth and adventure, yet you are also aware that you will have to make sacrifices to accomplish your goals. Thankfully, you’re not concerned now about anything that could get in the way of your success. In fact, you might be so sure of yourself that you assume you’ll be able to overcome obstacles as they appear. Be wise and improve your chances by planning carefully and following through methodically.
You face an uphill battle today as you try to figure out why your recent plan went wrong. You may be struggling to unravel the complex factors playing out in the present moment, but it’s apparent that you must make a mid-course correction or you won’t reach your destination. Nevertheless, it’s not wise to make changes too quickly. Overreacting may be even less helpful than doing nothing. Don’t look back to uncover your mistakes; instead, look ahead to prepare for where you are going.
A relationship creates stress today as someone rebels against your plan. A close friend or partner might surprise you by expressing a position that is very different from yours. Although you may choose not to argue, just letting others do what they want isn’t in your best interest. It’s much smarter to directly confront small problems now so they won’t grow into major ones later.
You aren’t satisfied by simply doing good work today; you want others to acknowledge your brilliance. Attacking an old project in a new and different way isn’t enough to hide your insecurity. But there’s no need to put so much effort into seeking recognition, especially if your desire for the spotlight allows you to forget that your initial purpose was to get the job done. Creating a detailed plan can be quite helpful, but too much analysis might get in the way of your productivity.
You are overly self-expressive today with the enterprising Aries Moon now moving through your 5th House of Spontaneity. However, your exuberant feelings of creativity may be too much for those around you. Being less demonstrative is not a sensible solution, but it helps to allow time for others to show off their talents, too. Encouraging friends and co-workers to embark on an adventure with you may be much more rewarding than just doing it by yourself.
You may be stepping onto unfamiliar ground today as you struggle to balance your desire to engage someone you love and your need to withdraw into your own world. Fortunately, you can play both extremes now. Keep your heart open while also being mindful of setting your boundaries and respecting the needs of others. It doesn’t matter if you’re feeling a bit uncomfortable, because it’s at these awkward spots that the real magic happens.
You are an intense bundle of erratic thoughts today as familiar ideas combine to create ingenious plans. Luckily, you can showcase your talents without too much effort. However, there is a huge difference between an adequate job and an awesome one. Putting extra time into your preparation pays off now, so don’t take any unnecessary shortcuts.
It’s scary to push forward so far that you must scramble your way back to safe ground. There’s no need to throw out your sensible plans just because you momentarily forgot about them and then moved too fast. Risk-taking isn’t necessary now; just slow down and stay on the current path. Don’t let the increasing pressure trick you into reacting impulsively.
