Today’s serious Capricorn Moon reminds us that giving emotions free rein can add complexity to what we must accomplish in the real world. Unfortunately, we can overcompensate by totally ignoring our feelings, possibly creating a situation where they later erupt with even greater intensity. A creative quintile between energetic Mars and electrical Uranus might act as a lightning rod, attracting a catalytic spark that releases the hidden tensions.
You might think that working extra hard today will enable you to do everything that is expected of you. However, a magical quintile between your key planet Mars and brilliant Uranus can create some distracting fireworks. An unexpected series of events could turn your day into an obstacle course. Nevertheless, don’t blame your shortfall on someone else; how you handle your responsibilities is still up to you.
You have a variety of alternatives to pick from today as you contemplate where you want to go. But your resources seem to be limited by the current circumstances, so you need to be creative enough to find the best route to your goals. Whether you lack money or time, don’t waste your energy by micromanaging the details of every contingency. Narrow the field of options before you start fine-tuning your plan.
It’s becoming more apparent day by day that you can’t do everything you set your heart on, even though you’re ready to give it all you’ve got. Unfortunately, using brute force will only exhaust you, without guaranteeing that you’ll accomplish your goals. Instead, try a different tactic now by employing self-discipline. Reining in your activities will make you happier in the long run. Remember, a focused approach is better than a scattered one.
It’s admirable to be sensitive to the needs of others, but it’s not healthy if your happiness depends on someone else’s feelings. The biggest problem with putting the determinant of your emotional well-being in anyone else’s hands is that you can’t be responsible for other people’s shifting moods. Fortunately, you can have positive impact on a situation by changing your own attitude. Remember, nurturing begins with taking care yourself.
You may sense the emotional tension increasing between you and your workmates. Unfortunately, you might not know how to react. It’s useless to try and change what you’re feeling when all you need to do is improve your outward behavior. Nevertheless, you will only fuel inner conflict today by making believe that everything is okay. Ultimately, total honesty is the wisest defense.
Thankfully, the intensity level at work seems to be lower now, yet you’re still not convinced that everything is really returning to normal. To the contrary, you might be wondering if anything in your life will ever be the same. Fortunately, you don’t need to take major action today. Just recognize that although this is a stressful period, you can still have a positive outlook about current events.
The Moon’s visit to your 4th House of Family can bring extra parental responsibilities or other familial commitments, creating a little crisis as you attempt to squeeze everything into your schedule. It’s a real problem because there’s so much to do that you can’t possibly feel satisfied by the amount you manage to accomplish. Unfortunately, your anxiety probably won’t prevent you from trying the impossible. However, the sooner you simplify your environment, the more time you’ll have available for others.
You had a chance recently to share what’s on your mind with friends. Unfortunately, your window of opportunity is starting to close, so you must jump into the conversation as quickly as possible. The time for contemplation has passed. Whatever remains unsaid today may be banished into the shadows for an indeterminate amount of time.
You need to be serious now and expect others to respect your somber attitude. However, you still may be unable to concentrate on your current obligations. Good intentions may not take you as far as you want to go today; you have to walk your talk to be recognized. Coming up with all the right words is easy now; however, it’s quite another thing to put them into action.
You might claim that you aren’t trying to get ahead at work now, but something is changing and you would be wise to make the most of it. It’s tempting to ignore the current pressures, yet the instability may be just the catalyst you need. But it’s not just about grabbing an irresistible opportunity; the real message is about how your desires are awakening. Set new long-term goals that can ultimately fulfill your most basic needs.
You might try to float through the day by doing as little as possible, but you won’t likely get away with it. Even if you don’t do much, you may retrospectively wish that you worked harder in the morning. You won’t be able to accept a surprise invitation later in the day if you’re not finished with your duties. But if you already fulfilled your responsibilities, this afternoon can bring unexpected pleasure.
You can talk yourself out of your confidence as the day wears on, especially if you agreed to show up at a social event this evening. But retreating for a while enables you to emerge physically refreshed and emotionally recharged, ready for another round of battles to fight off unnecessary change. Don’t be afraid of expressing your own power now, even if you think that you should wait for a better time to act.
It’s easy for our feelings to grow out of control once the Moon enters cavalier Sagittarius at 5:46 am EDT. We’re motivated to express ourselves in a big way without worrying about the consequences, but we can miss important subtleties in our rush for recognition. Fortunately, we get cosmic help as energetic Mars in interactive Gemini creates a supportive sextile with communicator Mercury. However, the quickest response isn’t always the best one.
You’re very excited about all the possibilities in your life now that the fiery Sagittarius Moon is tempting you to push your limits even further. You could even believe that the signs are telling you to go ahead and do it all, even if you don’t have enough energy to keep up with such an active schedule. Be smart and practice saying no, or you might spread yourself so thin that you end up exhausting yourself and having no fun at all.
You may spend too much money on something you don’t really need, but impulsive purchases aren’t necessarily a smart idea today. Although you might regret your momentary lack of fiscal discipline, you could be motivated to act now if you think that you’ll lose your chance by letting the opportunity pass. However, the sense of urgency is an illusion and isn’t based on what’s actually happening. You can avoid buyer’s remorse if you simply take extra time to weigh your options prior to opening your wallet.
Your key planet Mercury harmonizes with pushy Mars in your friendly sign today, provoking you to talk up a storm. But however enticing a social invitation sounds now, you might need some time to relax away from other people. Everyone seems to be encouraging you to do more, but you don’t have to live up to their expectations. Instead of succumbing to peer pressure, listen to your own voice and do what sounds right.
The Moon’s visit to your 6th House of Employment may mean that your big ideas about what you intend to accomplish at work today are not realistic. It’s healthy to remember that even your most sensible plans might need to be set aside if you’re distracted by something more interesting than your responsibilities. It’s not that you’re feeling scattered; it’s just that boredom is setting in. It’s okay to explore new avenues of expression as long as you follow through with everything you start.
You are highly enthusiastic about playing with your friends, even if you have real work to do today. It’s hard to get the fun and games out of your mind, whether or not you can participate in them. However, you may be tired of having to take the lead to make anything happen. Acknowledging that you deserve some downtime is part of your solution now; the other part is scheduling your day so you fit in some work and some play.
You feel as if you’re at odds with yourself today because you can’t find the right balance between too little and too much. You are naturally competent in handling details. However, your current extravagance tempts you to promise more than you can deliver, especially if you skim over a crucial piece of information. Thinking about all the possibilities now is healthy as long as you remember that your common sense is still your greatest asset.
Your friends may believe that you’re a bit imbalanced today, especially if your optimism pushes you toward big thinking. Although everything may appear better than it actually is now, you might overcompensate by seeing potential problems everywhere you look. Keep in mind that the truth is somewhere in between the extremes and it’s smarter to moderate your enthusiasm rather than going overboard in either direction.
You may not be willing to let go of your financial concerns, even if you’re more positive now about the future. The upbeat Sagittarius Moon shines a spotlight on your 2nd House of Possessions now and you recognize that your success depends upon consolidating your gains. If you try to bolt ahead too quickly, you may end up jeopardizing your progress. Allow your enthusiasm to build, but move forward cautiously until you build a momentum that you can sustain.
The Moon’s return to inspirational Sagittarius reminds you of how significant your feelings are to your happiness. Unfortunately, you are sometimes tempted to override your emotions if they get in the way of an exciting activity. However, you are unable to ignore what your body tells you today. Your moods are vital indicators of your overall well-being now, so pay extra careful attention to honoring what your heart needs.
Paradoxically, you may be very talkative today, even though you might prefer being left alone. You aren’t ready to engage with the noise of the world now and it would be wise to avoid unnecessary social events and gatherings of large groups of people. Initiating meaningful one-on-one conversations allows you to connect on a deeper level with someone special. Even if being accepted by a club or a clique could help you achieve your goals, save the socializing for another day.
You’re buzzing today as the Moon in your 11th House of Friends and Associates fires up your social life, even if it’s a workday. It’s not easy to stay serious about your job now, unless it involves interacting with your peers. You want to be connected with your tribe, even if it’s in a business rather than a personal setting. Fortunately, you’ll receive the support and admiration of your co-workers if you take care of your obligations as expected.
Your vision of the future captures the imagination of your associates today, leading you to assume a greater amount of authority. You may not want to be the boss, but others realize that you’re one of the few people who actually understand what’s happening. Don’t turn down a leadership role if you are chosen by your peers. Stand up and play your part; you will be able to step back with a sense of accomplishment later on.
We receive stabilizing support from ambitious Saturn’s easy trine to assertive Mars because we’re able to see results from what we do today. It’s wise to use this energy to consciously start a project now without taking any shortcuts. Meanwhile, the discriminating Virgo Moon reminds us that perfection is worth attaining. Although we may become so hung up in the details as we consider each alternative, the answers won’t come from logical analysis.
Although this has been a high-intensity week, you’re ready to settle down and get some work done as your key planet Mars is motivated by taskmaster Saturn. Thankfully, the discriminating Virgo Moon helps you limit unnecessary activities. Rather than wasting time and scattering your energy, focus on the variety of things you have to do now. Even if it’s difficult for you to commit to a schedule, today it is required.
You may breathe a sigh of relief now that the Moon is in fellow Earth sign Virgo. A familiar wave of practicality washes away the heightened intensity of the past few days. But this is no time to get lazy, for there is still so much to do. Fortunately, your actions seem to be on target today, enabling you to accomplish what must be done.
You are pulled in several directions as you sort out the most productive way to move through your busy day. Although you’re eager for experiences that pique your curiosity, you don’t have enough time to take everything in. You may be quite talkative and wish that you could interact with nearly everyone you meet, but you must make tough choices and limit your activities. Finding balance isn’t easy, yet thinking carefully about your decisions before you make them assures the best possible outcome.
Others may not be able to see past your hard-working exterior today, but your emotions are running strong and deep. You’ll feel better once you take a few deep breaths and give yourself some time to contemplate what works best for you. Otherwise, you’ll just get swept up into doing what’s expected, even if it means hiding what’s truly important to you now. If anyone pressures you to do anything that’s outside of your comfort zone, set clear boundaries before things become more complicated.
A melodrama is beginning to fade while your common sense grows stronger by the hour. You have no interest in being waylaid by anyone’s emotionally intense story today, especially one that appears to go nowhere useful. Instead, apply your efforts toward making your day more efficient. Work hard, but once you meet your obligations, choose rest over frivolous activities. Conserving your energy is wise because it will take you longer than a day or two to finish your project.
The Moon’s visit to your sign is a strong reminder today that efficiently managing your internal world is a necessary part of putting your external affairs in order. Today’s attitude sets the stage for what’s ahead and if you let yourself become overwhelmed, things will only get harder to handle as the days fly by. But positive thinking isn’t enough; hard work is your most reliable tactic to achieve success.
You aren’t eager to reveal your innermost feelings today, but thankfully others might not even notice that you’re hiding something. It isn’t that you have big dark secrets; you’re just trying to prevent your relationships from growing more complicated. Consider the potential impact of what you do prior to taking action. Practicing a bit of self-restraint now is easier than dealing with the negative consequences afterward.
Your friends may be overly critical about your work today as the Moon finishes up her stay in your social 11th house. Fortunately, you are self-assured now, enabling you to use the valuable feedback you receive without getting discouraged by anyone else’s judgments. Utilizing your common sense helps you avoid taking any comments too personally.
You want everyone to accept your authority today as the Moon moves through your 10th House of Public Status. However, it isn’t enough to be right; you also want others to appreciate you for your intelligence and your competence. Still, it’s tempting to get sidetracked by big ideas, so keep your plans simple and then do your best to make them real.
Ironically, it’s easier to have fun today if you also have responsibilities that demand your attention. Even if you cannot act on the spur of the moment to join others in a playful activity, you can include time for socializing into your schedule. As paradoxical as it sounds, establishing an agenda allows you to be more spontaneous.
It’s challenging to focus on your work today when you have so much self-analysis going on in your own mind. You are smart to channel your internal noise into creative pursuits, rather than just wasting your energy. Don’t be concerned if others think you are too serious now. You have pressing matters to handle that don’t leave you with a lot of time to engage in social niceties. Your actions will speak for you, instead.
Although you may want to do things your own way today, you’ll get along better with everyone if you respect the perspectives of others. Don’t get so wrapped up in your own work that you cannot be sensitive to someone else. But there’s no reason to set aside your own needs in deference to the preferences of your workmates. Finding common ground enables you to do your own thing while still following the rules of the game.
The nurturing Cancer New Moon at 4:53 am EDT is a Solar Eclipse, marking a powerful turning point in our relationships. The eclipse’s stressful aspects to radical Uranus, karmic Saturn and intense Pluto raise the stakes in every emotional interaction. We may feel as if we’re being bounced around in stormy seas, yet our flexibility helps us conserve our energy for later. Patience may be our best strategy when responding to these strong currents.
The resistance you face can stop you in your tracks today, but it’s crucial that you don’t give up on a good idea. If you initially miss the lesson you’re being taught, slow down and listen carefully to what’s being said. The obstacles are more easily handled once you accept that they are there for a reason. Ironically, it’s less important to reach your destination now than it is to fine-tune your plans.
Although you probably have a very busy day ahead of you, it still may be hard to get going. Even after you begin your day’s work, you’re tempted to get by with doing less. But your energy builds and you’ll be ready to overcome anything that stands in your path once you find your pace. Just remember that you’re not the only one with an ambitious agenda. Getting the facts from another point of view can change your perspective and increase your options.
It’s tempting to waste the day running around in circles just trying to keep up with everything. But you may not get anywhere unless you’re willing to take some time for contemplation today. Be careful, for your current strategy should not be thought of as a retreat. You must stabilize the progress you already made because you could jeopardize your success if you continue to move too fast. Remember, reaching your goals is more like running a marathon than a sprint.
Today’s Solar Eclipse can be a harbinger of an energetic shift within your family. You could bury your head in the sand and be totally surprised by what happens, or you can co-create your future by living the change you seek. Start by sitting down and writing a list of resolutions, as if it is New Year’s Day. Focusing your intentions during the eclipse plants significant seeds of thought in your fertile imagination.
Today’s Solar Eclipse falls in your 12th House of Endings, revealing an unusual blending of two cycles, since the New Moon is like a fresh start. But beginning something new prior to completing old business can be problematic. Allow the current process to play out naturally or you might miss your chance. Your best bet is to stay aware of the interrelationship between what you are finishing and what you want to do next.
You may feel isolated today as the moody Cancer Eclipse shakes your 11th House of Community. At first, people that you usually count on are not as accessible as you wish. Fortunately, your true friends will come through just in time with the support that you need. Don’t draw the wrong conclusions prematurely; give others the benefit of the doubt instead of assuming the worst.
You feel the pressure to make a career move today as the Solar Eclipse activates your professional 10th house. But a minor family crisis may add stress to your day, especially if you’re already not seeing eye to eye with another family member. You might not be happy about how someone tries to control the situation now, but you should heed the smart advice, rather than throwing out an idea just because it makes you uncomfortable.
This caring New Moon Eclipse in softhearted Cancer helps you build emotional continuity, although it may come with a component of drama. You may be happy to know who you are and where you are heading. But your perspective can be so intense that you feel as if you must stand up for your beliefs. You need to tread extra carefully now, for you could inadvertently provoke a conflict by resorting to aggressive behavior. Try channeling your passion into physical activities instead.
You might be a bit uncertain as today’s Solar Eclipse evokes a sense of discomfort by pushing you to explore feelings that you would rather forget. Don’t belittle a friend’s melodrama by judging it as unimportant just so you don’t have to get involved. Your willingness to partake in a meaningful dialogue may be just what’s needed to take a relationship to a new level of intimacy.
An overly emotional interaction with a friend or partner today reveals that he or she has more going on now than you previously thought. You can tell that there’s a suppressed power issue in the background, but you don’t know what to do about the imbalance. If you confront it head-on, you could make matters worse. But if you let it slide, you may end up contributing to the weird energy. The conversation might be awkward at first, but if you can talk about your uneasiness without blaming anyone else you will be able to make a positive difference.
You don’t think that you’re harboring any resentments about your job, but it’s still not easy to let go of an unresolved hurt. Fortunately, you have a pretty good grasp of the source of your current negativity and it’s up to you now to clear the air. Be open to receiving helpful support from those who love you. Leaning on your friends and family gives you the strength to process your feelings and get on with the real work at hand.
You can finally stand firmly on the ground again after an extended period of uncertainty. But things are not as they seem and your foundation might not be as strong as you once thought. Don’t get hooked into overcompensating today; there’s really no good reason to flaunt your confidence. Nothing is gained by setting up a competitive dynamic where others are threatened by your success. Softening your stance now helps to relieve tensions and bring harmony back into your relationships.
The radiant Sun forms a dynamic square with radical Uranus today, shaking up the status quo and driving us to the edge of unorthodox behavior. We’re tempted to take unnecessary risks to express our eccentricities, however fleeting they may be now. We need not worry if someone accuses us of being weird as long as we remember to treat others nicely. And, the practical Taurus Moon reminds us that we can also find satisfaction in simple pleasures.
You might do something that upsets someone today because you’re willing to gamble your security for the possibility of an amazing experience. You’re more ready than ever to push the envelope of your reality. However, caution is advised because you won’t likely get what you want unless you are willing to make a strategic plan first. Remember, what you do before you take action is as important as what you do after.
Chaotic Uranus can take you for a wild ride today, leading you to temporarily forget that you like things simple. You may feel ready to rock the boat and shake up your mellow routine. However, fulfilling fantasies shouldn’t be your focus; what’s really important is to free up your imagination so you can visualize the amazing possibilities that are outside of the box.
Your energy may be scattered today as you try to express yourself in new and different ways. Fortunately, you’re able to bend the rules now or even make them up as you go. It’s exhilarating when everything falls into place and goes according to your plan. Enjoy the fun while you can, but don’t expect it to last. You’ll need to return to reality and take care of unfulfilled obligations sooner or later.
Restless Uranus squares the Sun in your sign today, provoking you to come out of hiding. You aren’t overly concerned about the consequences of your actions now because it feels as if you can get away with being yourself without others judging you. Although acting spontaneously is refreshing, you could still do something foolish if you don’t consider how you might feel later. It’s great to express yourself, but think before you act.
You have big dreams about what you want to do for adventure, but it may not be that easy to turn your ideas into reality. Instead of procrastinating today, it’s smarter to take the time now to create a concrete plan. It’s a mistake to think that anything is possible unless you’re willing to put in the effort required. Fortunately, you have more time than you think, so don’t overreact and try to do everything at once.
You may feel as if you’re under a lot of stress today, but your desire to do the right thing can turn a difficult day into a memorable one. Don’t worry about how to get others to support your agenda. Instead, simply do the very best job you can, even if you must do it alone. Ultimately, your performance will exceed everyone else’s expectations of what you should do.
It’s challenging to motivate yourself today, for you may feel unusually calm, even in the center of a storm. The unexpected chaos that’s brewing around you only encourages you to hold fast to your current position. However, your immunity to change won’t last; take preemptive action, rather than passively waiting for the lightning to strike.
You need to be careful today or you could become so involved with a project that it takes over your entire day. Something that begins as a minor chore could grow more complicated as you mull over your options. A brilliant plan might come to you in a sudden flash of inspiration, tempting you to take immediate action. But impulsive behavior could demonstrate your recklessness rather than your intelligence. Be patient; the best ideas develop over time.
Your enthusiasm is high today, yet it’s tough to know exactly what to do with your unconventional desires. Unfortunately, if you attempt to ignore your needs, they will only grow stronger. However, you could easily upset the stability of a comfortable relationship now if you just blurt out what you want. Choose an appropriate moment and discuss your feelings casually without becoming overly attached to what happens next.
It isn’t easy today to stick to your customary role of being the responsible one in your family or group of friends. You are suddenly eager to explore undiscovered facets of yourself. You are even tempted to take a quantum leap of faith and blast through a self-imposed limitation. Instead of shocking others with your uncharacteristic behavior, simply start by revealing your thoughts. Once you are ready, transform your brilliant ideas into positive action.
You may be difficult to deal with today because you don’t want to do what’s expected of you. Your key planet, rebellious Uranus, squares the Sun in your 6th House of Daily Routines, prompting you to break the rules. However, you might try to hide your radical behavior now because you don’t want to be rejected by those you love. Go ahead and take a risk; others won’t judge you as harshly as you’re judging yourself. Coloring outside of the lines is your best approach.
You are on edge today and even those things that usually seem comforting can provoke free-floating anxiety. You are being stretched tightly and something is ready to snap at the slightest little provocation. Unfortunately, you could feel even worse if you go over the edge and lose your temper. Discussing your fears rationally now is a better strategy than ignoring them, for they won’t go away until the underlying issue is addressed.
Quicksilver Mercury entered emotionally sensitive Cancer last Thursday, challenging us to maintain our rational perspective on life. However, now that the communicator planet is opposing passionate Pluto, we may be forced to defend our point of view. Participating in an honest discussion about our fears can help to offset any negativity. Fortunately, the intellectual Aquarius Moon enables us to detach ourselves from any unrealistic expectations.
A domestic matter that has been lurking in the background could shift to the forefront today. You might feel as if you’re being pushed to say something, even if you are trying to remain neutral. Unfortunately, your words can have more consequences than you expect and might even make things worse. Before you open your mouth, consider whether your disclosure will actually improve the situation. It may be wiser to remain silent for a while longer.
Obsessing about something you should have said to a close friend or family member stirs up unresolved feelings today. But your concerns could be agitated because you’re currently overly sensitive to everything in your immediate environment. Although it’s healthy to acknowledge your compassion for those close to you, it’s also important to remember that you are not responsible for anyone else’s emotions. Don’t intrude into someone else’s life unless you have been specifically invited.
Your ruling planet Mercury engages in a mental war of survival with relentless Pluto today. You may feel as if you’re in over your head, but Mercury is clever enough to outwit even the toughest opponent. Thinking quickly enables you to emerge victorious, but only if you’re realistic about your limitations. There’s no place now for blind optimism. Pay careful attention to everything that is said before making your case as succinctly as you can.
It seems as if someone is pressuring you to say more than you want today as domineering Pluto opposes Mercury in reclusive Cancer. The more others push, the more you resist their efforts. Nevertheless, you still might prefer to have everything out in the open, even if it’s challenging for you to move the discussion along. You would be wise to break through your own resistance because nothing will happen if you wait for anyone else to speak for you.
Even though your patience may have reached its limit, you’re still probably trying to balance your feelings with what others want now. You may be resentful that someone is standing between you and your potential enjoyment. Paradoxically, keeping your negativity to yourself only strengthens it. A smarter strategy is to get your annoyance out in the open. Thankfully, your anger can be transformed once it is seen for what it is.
Your key planet Mercury is visiting your 11th House of Friends where it connects you to others on a deep emotional level. However, its current opposition to shadowy Pluto indicates that your need for personal expression may be overwhelmed by the group process. It’s a good idea to let everyone know how you feel as long as you assume complete responsibility for your own emotions. If you don’t blame anyone else, no one will be able to fault you for saying what’s on your mind.
You are often inclined to keep your opinions to yourself in order to maintain the peace, but someone may push your emotional buttons today, provoking you to say more than is necessary. Although it could be wiser to listen to logic, you are motivated by your sense of fair play to set the record straight. Nevertheless, a bit of diplomacy is still a good idea; you can be honest without having to get everything out in the open in one single blast.
Although interactive Mercury comforts you while it is visiting emotional Cancer, your words seem more confrontational today than you intend. Your key planet Pluto is in a passionate tug-of-war with the cosmic messenger, allowing harsh words to easily slip off your tongue. The consequences of your current honesty could stir up a hornet’s nest of complex feelings. Unnecessary stress can be avoided if you stop to consider other people’s reactions before you speak.
You don’t have much patience with others today; it seems as if your window of opportunity is closing and you might lose your chance to say what’s on your mind if you don’t start an overdue conversation right away. You may be uncomfortable showing your vulnerability, but you are able to quickly adjust to the situation. Your natural confidence is a blessing, but it’s still wise to move slowly. Impulsive disclosures tend to be shallow and may not lead to true satisfaction.
You might be obsessing about a friend or partner today, whether or not the relationship has a viable future. You may even withdraw from others now because retreating from non-essential interactions can be a healthy part of this transit. Letting go is often painful, yet making believe that everything is fine is even worse. You can always choose to reconnect later once you feel more like yourself.
You may be holding out for a better deal today, but it’s probably wise to reconsider your demands and be more open to negotiation. Your natural ability to detach from an emotional situation isn’t working now, making it difficult to unhook yourself from a complex web of feelings. Reminding yourself that you are human just like everyone else will make it easier to express what is in your heart.
Although you might attempt to quietly go about your business today, your frustration could build to a breaking point because you believe that others are not being completely honest with you. You would rather hear the truth than waste your energy trying to fill in the missing information. Ironically, the more you question others, the more they withdraw. Ultimately, it’s best to pay attention to your own feelings now without pushing for resolution until more facts come to light.
While the logical Virgo Moon helps us to be more reasonable, she squares mental Mercury and the Sun in flighty Gemini today, challenging us to quiet our noisy minds. The dynamic tension between earthy Virgo and airy Gemini is doubly significant because both signs are ruled by Mercury, making it difficult to choose between practicality and curiosity. Fortunately, a subtle Jupiter-Neptune sextile graces us with broad vision and accurate intuition.
The Moon’s visit to your 6th House of Routine can raise your anxiety level today if you cannot figure out a way to completeeverything that you promised. Naturally, it’s not a good idea to blame anyone else for things that are ultimately your responsibility. Fortunately, you are able to approach your dilemma in a mature manner, gently sharing your concerns with those involved instead of dwelling on the past. Focusing on what needs to be done in the present moment elicits cooperation instead of conflict.
You might not feel secure enough to reveal what’s actually on your mind because you’re afraid that the reaction you’ll receive won’t be in your favor. However, if you only share some of your emotions, you could set up a situation where you inadvertently alienate a close friend or lover. Your attempt to withhold parts of your story will be more apparent than you realize. It is better to simply tell everything and then deal with whatever fallout occurs.
The cautious Virgo Moon squares the Sun in your sign today, requiring you to think twice before you act. You may feel as if you should restrain yourself and you’re not too happy about needing to withhold your desires. However, suppression only makes matters worse; it’s smarter to acknowledge potential problems before they fully develop. If your plans aren’t adequate enough to do the job, work on improving them now — not after the fact.
You have an exciting opportunity to see beyond your previously set agenda, but you may need to let go of an immediate goal. However, this shouldn’t be considered a failure since your current course might not be the best way to reach your destination anyhow, even if it seems like a direct route. Forget about your preconceived conclusions and create a new map that’s based on today’s information instead of yesterday’s news.
Your workweek might not be going according to plan, but it could turn out fine as long as you don’t try to control everything. Paradoxically, the more you resist change, the harder it is for you to adapt. Set your short-term goals aside for a day or two and think about the distant future while you respond to the current circumstances the best you can. Remember, this is not about sacrificing important values; it’s about avoiding self-doubt.
The Moon’s visit to your sign can raise worries as you try to balance your feelings with your current objectives at work. You may be able to put your best foot forward now by acting more confident than you feel, only to realize that your workmates expect more out of you. Don’t be afraid to acknowledge your limitations. Your honesty will be refreshing to others, motivating them to come to your support.
Your role at work is slowly but profoundly transforming as others begin to acknowledge your authority. Only recently, you might have had to struggle to get your opinion heard, but now your astute perspective is in demand. However, overextending your control may bring your success to a halt. Remember, it’s not important to be on top as long as you have your hand in creating the big changes that are unfolding.
Relationships are not as complicated as they seem, even if your feelings are more intense than others want to deal with today. You are eager to work on your communication style, but you need to be noticed for your efforts. Unfortunately, painful memories can cloud your mind, making it harder to hear the positive feedback you receive. Try not to let old emotional tapes get in the way of any praise that comes your way now.
Your key planet Jupiter harmonizes with imaginative Neptune today, activating your vision of an ideal future. Although your new goals may not be fully grounded in reality, they can still inspire you to work harder to break through old limitations. However, it might seem as if your current work duties are standing in your way of your long-term success. Don’t make any significant changes just yet; fulfilling your immediate responsibilities may help your progress more than you realize.
You are at a fork in the road and events at work may create a minor crisis today, requiring you to choose which route to take. Fortunately, you are not restrained by the usual set of rules, enabling you to find a solution where others have already failed. Ironically, accepting a new responsibility could prove to get in your way of success. Remember, your ability to remain detached from the outcome is what gives you the winning strategy.
You might actively disagree with someone at work today and think that a heated argument is needed in order to shift the energy. However, conflict won’t bring you any closer to the truth, and may even add to the existing animosity. You can be highly productive if you don’t become distracted by a petty disagreement. Instead of allowing yourself to get hooked by your emotions, rise above any difference of opinion and commit to working for the highest cause.
You may appear somewhat lost today as the magnifying lens of Jupiter hooks up with illusory Neptune to make your dreams seem vividly real. Fortunately, you are more practical than usual now, for the exacting Virgo Moon sharpens your senses. Don’t worry about what others may be thinking; they will soon recognize the usefulness of your ideas as your plans take shape over the days ahead.
The intellectual Aquarius Moon shapes the early morning and her entry into compassionate Pisces at 8:23 am EDT shifts our perceptual framework from a conceptual to an emotional one. The Moon’s square to the curious Gemini Sun gets us wondering about how our feelings influence our thoughts. A frustrating Venus-Saturn aspect requires patience, while mental Mercury’s creative quintile to metaphysical Neptune assures us that imagination rules.
You may be content with your dreams now, but you’re also aware that there is more to life than your fantasies with so many incomplete projects demanding your attention. Even if you’re able to postpone a deadline for another day or two, you can’t escape thinking about everything you have yet to finish. But worrying in advance doesn’t accomplish anything unless you’re ready to do something about it now. Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today.
Your reliability can earn the respect of your associates, especially if you’re willing to make a decision today and stand by it. Even if your ideas are unpopular, your serious demeanor convinces others to go along with your choice because they realize how much thought has gone into your response. Nevertheless, picking one side over another is still tricky business, so give yourself permission to change your mind if you are so inclined.
You cannot easily settle down because you’re thinking about the possible repercussions to what you’re doing. Your previously optimistic outlook may be sagging because a special opportunity isn’t looking quite as good now. Intuitively, you know that once you make up your mind you won’t be able to go back and undo your decision, so take all the time you need before announcing your final choice.
You may be having a difficult time today, but others probably won’t be aware of your stress because you’re able to keep it to yourself. You have a very particular idea of what you want your future to look like, yet you might be convinced that you’re not on the right track. Don’t try to talk yourself out of your dreams, even if they make your life more complicated now. Your self-doubt will eventually fade and you’ll realize that nearly anything is possible once you put your mind to it.
You have a unique point of view today, which increases your chances of surprising others, especially if they want to conveniently place you inside a traditional box. Ironically, your perspective isn’t quite as radical as it seems; it’s just that you may overstate your position as you try to make your case. Although you are quite opinionated, you should be able to get the support you need now as long as you mix integrity into your passions.
You might have an inaccurate view of your partner or co-worker today and yet you’re able to logically justify your opinion. Fortunately, you have an open mind and are willing to shift your perspective as you learn more about what’s actually happening. Although you’re tempted to scatter your energies now, you can achieve better results if you address the tension in a troublesome relationship. Resolving interpersonal dynamics can help you find the time to reach your other goals, too.
Instead of concentrating on your tasks at work today, you might be inclined to kick back and enjoy yourself. But you may have to fulfill your responsibilities first, so don’t take on any more than what you must. Your wisest strategy now is to balance work with play, rather than declaring either of them as more important than the other.
It’s odd to think that the Moon’s entry into imaginative Pisces can bring you back to reality, but her square to the Sun in your 8th House of Transformation today actually does have that effect. The dreaminess further fades with a down-to-earth Venus-Saturn aspect, exposing the limitations of your current perspective. But don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, for your inner child can teach you an important lesson if you let it come out to play.
Although you might need to go to work, you probably would prefer disappearing within your own home today. Nevertheless, once you do what is required, you could go back to the seclusion of your residence, turn off the phone and declare temporary independence from the outside world. For someone who normally likes to be the life of the party, hiding out now can be your secret guilty pleasure.
You don’t know what to do as the Moon joins indecisive Neptune in your 3rd House of Information. Although you’re able to say the right things that inspire others, you still might see yourself as a fraud because judgmental Saturn prevents you from perceiving yourself clearly today. Keep in mind that your uplifting words can be even more effective now if you believe in them yourself.
You are full of hope today as the Moon joins idealistic Neptune. But you may also be fearful that your meager efforts might not be enough to make things better. Don’t waste precious time belittling your contribution. Instead, shift the energy and focus on what you can do. Global change will not be the result of extraordinary work by a few people; it will come from the combined smaller deeds of everyone.
The Moon’s conjunction with spiritual Neptune in your sign today highlights your unique connection to all of humanity and the entire cosmos. You are unable to fully separate yourself from the larger picture, yet, paradoxically, an awkward Venus-Saturn aspect increases your current sense of isolation. Fortunately, taking a bit of time out of your busy day to meditate or pray can be enough to remind you that all fish live in the same sea and that individuality isn’t as important as it seems.
The Sun’s dynamic square to fuzzy Neptune confuses us by blurring our senses today. Our dreams can lure us off track if we cannot distinguish facts from fantasies. The restless Gemini Sun entices us with choices, but a cluster of planets in bull-headed Taurus creates inertia, making a change of direction more difficult, even if it’s a smart idea. Meanwhile, the intelligent Aquarius Moon gives us logical reasons to validate what we think we know.
You are inspired to put your finances in order today, but it may be challenging to actually follow through on your intentions. Handling money matters requires singular concentration, yet your vivid imagination can interfere with your ability to stay focused. Nevertheless, your fiscal stability is a worthwhile goal, so every time you wander off in your thoughts, just bring yourself back to the job at hand.
Your key planet Venus is squared by the rational Aquarius Moon, emphasizing the conflict between what you want and what you truly need. You are eager to share your thoughts with someone you trust while talkative Mercury is in your sign. You might think that you’re being perfectly clear now, but your actions don’t seem to support your words. It may be a better strategy to work diligently toward reaching satisfaction without saying too much for a day or two.
Mercury the Messenger is revving up your brain and activating your 12th House of Secrets. You have a lot to say, but aren’t sure how to work your thoughts into a conversation. You don’t necessarily want to be left alone today now that the Sun is in your 1st House of Self, but a miscommunication or a misunderstanding might disrupt your social plans. The good news is that it’s easier to stay on your path if you have fewer distractions.
You are lulled into a surreal mental space but the emotionally detached Aquarius Moon is visiting your 8th House of Transformation, encouraging you to use your intellect to interpret the mysterious symbols of your dreams. Unfortunately, this may be a dead end strategy because rational analysis won’t uncover any hidden meaning. Instead, follow your imagination and you’ll remember what your subconscious mind is trying to tell you when you least expect it.
The conceptual Aquarius Moon’s visit to your 7th House of Partners could attract a very intelligent person into your life who believes that he or she has the answers you seek. But you don’t want to be distracted by anyone because you’re trying to figure out how you will get through the time crunch that you now face. Ultimately, you can create unnecessary frustration by concentrating on what’s ahead before you handle a more immediate situation first.
Your unrestrained idealism might tempt you to set your sights too high today. Thankfully, your approach is methodical and you can prioritize all the chores that you want to finish. But you may have to let some of your pet projects fall to the wayside. Being selective and eliminating non-essential chores should help you feel less anxious, especially if you preemptively handle a potential problem, rather than waiting for it to turn into a minor disaster.
Your key planet Venus has been cavorting with noisy Mercury and pushy Mars, replacing sweet romance with tough talk. Fortunately, you can reclaim your sensuality now by shifting the focus to nebulous Neptune. Let go of your personal tastes and specific desires by detaching yourself from what may happen. Don’t waste time by letting others know what you want. Instead, surrender to the flow; you can always check your GPS tomorrow and then decide where to go next.
The Sun’s entry into your 8th House of Deep Sharing reminds you that dancing around surface issues isn’t all that fulfilling. You want to build meaningful relationships with close friends or family. However, your desires may be thwarted by someone who has a very different agenda. Don’t try to talk the other person into seeing things your way; the more you interact today, the further apart you grow, so avoid lengthy explanations at all costs.
You might think you have a very practical strategy to finish your long list of chores today, but your idealistic solutions may fall apart once you start executing your plans. You could underestimate how much time a job could take, or maybe you discover that you’re missing an important tool. Either way, working faster isn’t the answer. Ironically, you’ll finish sooner if you slow down. Doing a job right the first time is more efficient than having to do it again.
You can grow anxious when you misinterpret what’s happening in your life today, especially if your lack of clarity has to do with financial matters. The Moon’s visit to your 2nd House of Self-Worth puts money on your mind, and a dreamy Sun-Neptune square can inflate your expectations and set you up for disappointment. Avoid discouragement by remaining realistic about your resources and staying aware of the time and money that will be necessary to make a creative idea worthwhile.
Today you seem to be attracted to anything that allows you to lose yourself in a crowd of people or get caught up in a group cause. But you won’t be able to run away from yourself because you’ll probably bump into someone you know just when you thought you escaped. Rather than trying to sidestep a difficult emotional interaction, just stay present with your feelings. You might be pleasantly surprised by what happens when you show up with your heart and not just your head.
The Sun’s square to your key planet Neptune can act like a green light that’s inviting you to luxuriate in the rich symbolism of your imagination. Fortunately, you’re not a stranger to slipping behind the veil of consciousness. However, it’s challenging now to put your dreams to work. Today is your day of rest; instead of actively planning your next move, just let your mind wander without any specific agenda.
A burst of positive energy can free us from yesterday’s heaviness, tempting us to go overboard. Feisty Mars conjuncts buoyant Jupiter today, expanding our vision of life, magnifying the importance of current events and giving us a more optimistic outlook for the future. It may be difficult to rein in our enthusiasm, leading us to make promises we cannot keep. The impetuous Aries Moon joins Mars and Jupiter to further encourage the good times.
Sometimes too much of a good thing is not a good thing. The exuberant Moon-Mars-Jupiter conjunction happening now in your fiery sign may be enough to blast you into orbit, but you’ll need to pay extra careful attention to managing your energy reserves. It’s challenging for you to think about tomorrow when there are six planets in Aries today. Anything you can do to soothe your soul or settle your wild ideas will help to make this a more memorable time.
You may be all worked up over a new idea today, but won’t necessarily put too much effort into making your vision come true. It’s not that you’re particularly lazy now; it’s just that your common sense could overrule your excitement. Remember, your plan deserves enough time to develop before prematurely rushing into action, especially if it’s as brilliant as you think it is.
This continues to be a socially oriented weekend, but you may actually reach a point where you exhaust yourself just by having fun. Knowing when you’ve had enough is a sign of maturity, but setting limits can sometimes be a challenge. Overcome your fear of missing out on something special; call it quits and take some time to relax so you’ll feel rejuvenated and refreshed going into the week ahead.
Although this may be a day away from work, your mind is likely focused on your status in the professional world. This might even involve making plans to accomplish your ambitious career goals. Your optimistic outlook creates an immediate impact on activities with friends or family members today. If you have earned the respect of those you love, enjoy basking in their appreciation. But don’t waste time hesitating now; it’s your turn to take charge.
You can burn off excess energy today by doing something physical such as going on a long hike or working in the yard. But it’s also important to engage your mind by learning something new. You may be satisfied by having a discussion with a friend about an entirely unique course of study, perhaps involving religion, metaphysics or politics. Whatever you choose to do now, reach out beyond your comfort zone because going the distance will be far more rewarding than staying on familiar ground.
Your interest in getting to the bottom of a mystery could be a bit over the top today. You want answers and you are prepared to ask whatever questions are necessary to find the missing information. However, your obsessive curiosity might seem confrontational, even if that’s not your intention. You’ll make more progress if you don’t push so hard. Be as transparent as possible so your actions are not misunderstood.
A close friend or family member may be so optimistic today that you think he or she has gone overboard. At first it’s fun being around people who are upbeat and interested in doing something out of the ordinary. But, eventually you realize that you might be the one who needs to issue a reality check. However, don’t try to change others by raining on their parade. All you have to do is be clear about the limits of your participation.
This is a perfect day to begin a spring cleaning project with energetic Mars joining visionary Jupiter in your 6th House of Details. You have a clear sense of what you want to accomplish now and you have the stamina to get things done. However, you must take a big job and break it down into smaller manageable tasks in order to be efficient. Just make sure that you don’t bite off more than you can chew or you’ll be tired at the end of the day with little to show for your hard work.
Blowing up balloons can be fun if you know when to stop; otherwise they pop, leaving you with nothing. Likewise, when red-hot Mars fires up buoyant Jupiter today, you could get into trouble by taking a good idea and turning it into such a big deal that it eventually fizzles. Fun-filled activities can put a wonderful smile on your face now as long as you remember to moderate your natural inclination for bigger, better and more.
As much as you may enjoy a day off to spend at home with your family, too much domestic activity might have you thinking about ways to escape. It’s not that you want to be somewhere else; it’s just that you won’t likely want to give up an entire day without having something tangible to show for it. Try involving others in some sort of home improvement project. If they seem more interested in having fun, join in the festivities for a while and then excuse yourself so you can accomplish something on your own.
You are buzzing around today like a busy bee, flying from one flower to the next in a field filled with exciting distractions. There are so many possibilities you might feel a bit lost because you don’t know where to start or what to do next. However, you would be better off to save your rational thinking for another day; now it’s better to just jump in and have fun. Act first and analyze later.
Many people believe that material abundance begins with having healthy self-esteem. The uplifting Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your 2nd House of Self-Worth indicates that your self-confidence is on the rise now and could help you make an important decision. Fortunately, your current choices have a direct impact on your prosperity in the weeks ahead. Set your goals high and reach a little further than you normally would.
