Our actions don’t seem to elicit the responses that we expected today. Instead, everything takes longer now that energetic Mars in detail-oriented Virgo is moving very slowly, getting ready to go retrograde in a couple of weeks. Mars forms supernatural septiles with Venus and Mercury, turning things weird. Thankfully, dreams can become real as the fearless Leo Moon guides us to overcome uncomfortable situations by maintaining a positive attitude.
Your ruling planet Mars is held suspended in time today, making it difficult to initiate action. Even if you have a concrete plan, it may be nearly impossible to stick to it. The timing is off now; just as you are finally ready to start a new project, a wave of emotions can sweep over you and catch you off guard. Nevertheless, you don’t need to wait any longer; it’s time to sprint toward your destination no matter what. Concentrate on reaching your goals, even if they suddenly seem far away.
Taking action too soon may not seem like your regular style, but you might become so impatient today that you do something without considering what might happen next. You could get hooked by someone who has a specific idea of what you should be doing at work. You’re willing to jeopardize the stability of your current job for a chance at real success. Go for it, but don’t burn any bridges that you will later regret.
You want to create a big splash now as you demonstrate how proactive you can be in a tough situation. However, you might not think that revealing your emotions is a good idea. Although finding your center of gravity is useful, acting cautiously actually helps your cause. There’s no need to change everything all at once. Instead, take a few steps backward, breathe deeply and give it your best shot again once you’re ready.
You’re motivated to take on a new project today, but as you get closer to starting your excitement might begin to wane. Even if you do jump in, you might not have sufficient stamina to finish it, so try not to waste too much energy. Managing your resources wisely now could be crucial to your well-being later. There’s a lot happening around you, so it’s wise to prioritize your tasks immediately and not after it’s too late.
You may not be comfortable with your role as an action hero today as fiery Mars runs into a complex web of aspects. You might feel as if you’re ready to boil over, yet the fire isn’t quite hot enough to do the trick. Cooling your jets until everything is in order may not be an option because the window of opportunity won’t stay open for very long. Even if you don’t have a detailed plan in place, just grab the chance while you can and apply your energy to creating your future.
You may not feel like seeing too many of your friends and acquaintances today, so your initial impulse might be to withdraw from the action. Unfortunately, this isn’t the healthiest response, especially if your presence is helpful. Think about following through with your social obligations while still leaving some time left over to follow your dreams. You can do it all now if you don’t lose yourself to your fantasies along the way.
Nearly everything in your life appears to be growing more complicated again, especially if your friends and associates make demands that raise your anger. You’re not interested in being pushed around now, and if you’re provoked you’re likely to surprise others by stepping into combat mode. It makes the most sense for everyone to leave you alone today, unless they’re ready to play by your rules.
Your traditional ruling planet Mars is the major planetary player today as it surrealistically septiles magnetic Venus and motor-mouth Mercury. This erratic energy can transform a simple conversation into a major conflict or a passionate encounter. Fortunately, you may be more adept now at making peace, not war. However, you must remain vigilant because conscious effort on your part won’t just happen on its own.
Your day is busy with noisy conversations, too many emails and a phone that won’t leave you alone. You could even lose your temper if today’s data overload becomes too much for you to manage. However, ego battles aren’t useful and have no place in your life. Blaming someone else won’t accomplish anything of value; stop talking about the past and shift your attention to the positive changes you want to make for the future.
You might want to demonstrate your passion to a loved one today and see where the process carries you. However, you could miss a prime opportunity unless you stay true to your feelings and communicate them honestly. You really don’t have to add flourishes to your words or need to embellish your actions. Just tell the truth in a straightforward manner to minimize the possibility of misunderstandings.
Partnerships remain in the spotlight today as the needy Leo Moon’s presence in your 7th House of Companions pulls you toward others. However, Mars is being stressed in your 8th House of Intimacy, prompting you to believe that a friend or lover is crowding your comfort zone. Be courageous and defend your personal space, but don’t take things too far by attacking someone else. Even if you’re a bit worried, you’re probably not in as much danger as you might think.
You may seem more approachable to others today, which encourages them to trust you with their needs. If someone is trying to finish a project and looking for reinforcement, you’re the go-to person now. Unfortunately, you’re growing tired of having to hold down the fort. But avoiding your responsibilities isn’t a real option, so start right away. The quicker you get rolling, the sooner your work will be complete.
It would be great to report that happy days are here again and that most troubling situations – cosmically speaking – are on permanent hiatus. However, that is not in the 2012 game-plan and even two days from now – on a Friday the Thirteenth! – Mercury will unite with distant, mysterious and secretive Pluto while Venus unites with dreamy and far-out Neptune. With these intense planetary alignments waiting in the proverbial wings, take advantage of the joyful vibes coming from this morning’s Moon-Jupiter parallel (6:25AM PST). If you are not a frequent reader of this calendar, be aware that parallel and contra-parallel alignments are calculated by watching celestial bodies moving north and south of the Celestial Equator whereas zodiacal alignments are calculated in proximity to the great circle known as the Ecliptic. The Moon with Jupiter via a parallel formation is similar to a conjunction of these two bodies in the zodiac, and every lunar union with Jupiter normally offers up golden opportunities, an increase in fortunate tidings, and a reinforcement of the power of positive thinking. If you are awake and alert a few hours before the Moon-Jupiter alliance, it is best to keep your mental faculties serene since Mercury makes a frictional, 45-degree link to Pallas (2:12AM PST). The playful and loving vibrations of Leo Moon continue in force today – although some emotional challenges and psychic tensions can envelope primary partnerships when the Moon opposes Venus (9:29PM PST). Build up dear ones with praise and support instead of criticizing them with words of condemnation.
We may feel as if a weight has been lifted from our shoulders now that the heavy Sun-Saturn square is beginning to wane. Nevertheless, unfulfilled responsibilities can nag at us until we live up to our commitments. Positive aspects from the playful Leo Moon can add to the upbeat energy of the day. However, we might be very distracted because this is the last day of attractive Venus’ visit to curious Gemini before she slips into emotional Cancer.
You may feel lucky today and appear capable of turning nearly any situation into a good time. You don’t even have to do anything special; just showing up seems to make others smile. The biggest danger now can come from being overconfident since your positive attitude is not able to cure everything. Acknowledging your limitations upfront can prevent that embarrassing moment when you might have to admit that you’re really human, after all.
You prefer to keep your life simple yet you don’t want to give up on your long-term goals. Unfortunately, you could exhaust yourself attempting to resolve your conflict about which path you should be following. You really don’t like being pulled simultaneously in different directions, because it makes it tough to go along with the flow. Standing back from your dilemma enables you to find a solution.
There is an uneasy dynamic between your anticipation of what’s next and your desire to hold on to the past. You could be moving faster than ever, but still cannot keep up with all the changes in your life. Nonetheless, even if you’re a bit overwhelmed, you might be okay with the uncertainty. Retreating from your hectic schedule is a wise strategy; you’ll be more effective if you wait a few days before pushing your agenda ahead again.
You may be experiencing the proverbial calm before the storm today, yet your fear of what could happen next might be more ominous than anything happening in your immediate future. This weekend can be a turning point, and your recent efforts should finally start to bear fruit. Be practical and prepare for the next round of change that is on the horizon.
Your life becomes more complicated because you’re able to see the truth today, even if someone is trying to hide it from you. Your intuition makes it nearly impossible for you to be involved in superficial interactions now. You’re not interested in what others think of your ideas; they aren’t up for negotiation. But there’s no need to act self-righteously since it’s easier to get along with your friends if you acknowledge that there are many ways to look at a situation.
Acting brilliantly may be a lot simpler than you think today. Even if you can feel the pressure, there’s no need to jump through hoops to demonstrate your reliability. All you’re required to do now is to show up with your common sense intact. Let your intelligence shine through, but don’t try to solve every little problem that pops up.
Although you might not have reached your destination yet, you are, nonetheless, at the end of a road. Your current position is challenging because your sense of falling short may leave you feeling frustrated today. Thankfully, you can ease the tension by simply shifting your perspective. The emotional landscape has already started to change, yet there will be plenty of time to reach your goals once the path in front of you clears again.
You have run out of patience when it comes to anything that isn’t already on your radar today. However, you still might become distracted if something interesting catches your eye. You could be annoyed with yourself if you succumb to following your whim instead of your schedule. Paradoxically, if you keep yourself on track, you still might wonder what you missed. In the long run, it’s more important to keep moving forward than wasting time worrying about which route to choose.
The fiery Leo Moon increases your vitality today, but having more stamina doesn’t mean that you’re invincible. Although you might believe that you have an inexhaustible energy supply, it’s not smart to take on more than you should. Unfortunately, looking to others won’t produce the clarity you seek; you’ll have to make decisions about what you can and cannot do on your own. If you overextend now, you’ll likely run into problems next week. Save your strength for next week when you will need it.
Today you may be expected to manage a complex issue that involves a financial transaction, or you might just be feeling pressure from the lack of clarity in a business relationship. Either way, resolution will probably be delayed because you need more information. Nevertheless, you are enticed to make a decision before your time runs out. Don’t make an impulsive choice just because everyone thinks you should have already made up your mind. Wait until next week when you have more data at your disposal.
A friend expresses feelings that catch you off guard, complicating your relationship more than you want. You prefer keeping everything casual and on a rational basis because the energy is simpler to handle. But you can’t go back to the way things were unless you take a path of denial. Unfortunately, avoiding issues only makes them more difficult to handle. You can try downplaying the drama, but actively engaging in a constructive dialogue should help to reduce the complexity.
It’s challenging to distinguish the separate threads of truth now, for they have already been woven with a believable blend of fact and fiction. This complex tapestry entangles your imagination if you overanalyze the situation. Be careful, for your false sense of accuracy can trick you into making a decision based on an incorrect assumption. Instead of forcing the issue, just appreciate the moment. It should be easier to sort yourself out in a few days.
Today’s passionate Scorpio Moon intensifies our feelings as we try to balance our needs with others’. We want to talk about our problems since communicator Mercury joins the Sun in interactive Gemini. Venus is also in noisy Gemini and her supportive sextile to wild and crazy Uranus suggests that our desires won’t necessarily fit into normal social expectations. Thankfully, Saturn’s direct turn indicates that progress will be forthcoming anyhow.
Relationships may appear to be out of control, but you aren’t too worried because you are confident that you can pull everything back together. Actually, you might even enjoy all the action today. Surprisingly, you could get what you want if you maintain a healthy perspective so you don’t act too impulsively. Slow down and turn on your charm; your witty ways may score you the extra points you seek if you remember not to push things too far.
This may be an exciting day as reality gives a boost to your aspirations, tempting you to reach beyond your current goals. Although you realize that the sky is the limit, you are quite concerned about others taking your ideas in a different direction than you want. There is more going on behind the scenes and you are rather intrigued by the notion of untangling all the threads to figure it out. Keep in mind that you might do better by stepping back and letting someone else take charge for a while.
Brilliant ideas keep popping into awareness, enticing you into desiring more than you currently have. Unfortunately, your fantasies may only be fleeting and will soon fade back into the vast reaches of your subconscious. Although it’s challenging to slow down your thoughts, it’s best not to overdo it with too much caffeine or too many exciting activities. Enjoy the buzz without going over the edge.
You may be dreaming of performing on stage today, but you probably get nervous just thinking about being in front of so many people. However, if you are not able to do your own thing creatively, you might try exploring ways to ease your anxiety. One key to your current happiness is your willingness to reach out to others; talking about your fears is a sensible first step to overcoming your own resistance.
You may be required to face angels and demons of your own making today. You could be drawn toward a lovely person, only to realize that you’ve stepped outside your regular comfort zone. Setting sensible boundaries is a smart strategy, but you must follow through by enforcing them. Thankfully, the power of positive thought can be worth more now than anything else. It’s better to associate with optimistic people than someone who brings you down.
You might not be clear about what is expected of you now, but that won’t likely prevent you from trying to be everything to everyone. Naturally, it makes more sense to focus and find the clarity you need, especially since your key planet Mercury is aligning with the brilliant Sun. However, don’t downplay your desires today, even if they seem out of character. Remember that logical analysis can only take you so far; exploring unfamiliar territory may be just what the doctor ordered.
You may obsess about someone or something today and you’re tempted to go overboard in order to reach satisfaction. Your visions of the future can drive you further than logic. Meanwhile, your desires may seem out of control because your key planet Venus aligns with rebellious Uranus, making it difficult for you to know when to stop. Peace arrives when you can find a healthy balance between what you have and what you want.
It feels exhilarating today when you express your desires because what you say appears to be heard. You don’t want anyone to fix anything; you only need acknowledgment from someone who won’t disappear when the emotional pressure builds. The Moon’s visit to your sign deepens your intensity and pumps up your adrenaline until you are all wound up. Keep in mind that you don’t have to push anyone past his or her resistance just because you’ve moved through yours.
Your words have great impact now as talkative Mercury lines up with the Sun in your 7th House of Partnerships. However, rather than motivating others with an inspirational talk, you may want to set your work aside to pursue simple pleasures. Although having fun is usually your top priority, today you have cosmic messages to deliver first.
Your ability to stay on course may be tested today, but you should be able to develop the momentum necessary to do the job. However, your route may be circuitous, and veering off course for a bit could be the best way to reach your targets. You might feel as if your current goals are unattainable, but getting discouraged won’t help. Do whatever is necessary to keep your spirits high, including yoga, meditation or exercise. These activities won’t increase your productivity, but can help you find the elusive balance that you seek.
You might not be able to settle down today because your mind is crackling with excitement. You could even fall in love or, at minimum, eagerly flirt with someone worthy of your admiration. However, if the action heats up, you may wish to withdraw to a more secure place. Emotional connections are important, but it’s also wise to spend time establishing a new routine. Don’t try to do too much now, for incremental change is easier to manage than turning your entire life inside out.
The energy at home today may not feel as stable as you would prefer with erratic Uranus buzzing romantic Venus in your 4th House of Family. You have things to say, but may be fearful that your honesty could stir up more trouble than it’s worth. However, worrying about what others think could prevent you from taking much-needed action. Speak from your heart and deal with the consequences as you go along.
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.
We can find a workable balance today between the lightheartedness of the Gemini Sun and the heaviness of Saturn in relationship-oriented Libra. Fortunately, the expressive Leo Moon mediates the day as she forms collaborative sextiles with both Saturn and the Sun. Although we’re confident, we still need to be cognizant of our limits because of an exuberant Sun-Jupiter semisquare. There is power in having a positive attitude if we don’t go too far.
You may not get caught up with your work as fast as you wish today, for your mind is preoccupied with pleasure rather than production. It’s a smart idea to get the distractions out of your system now, for you have too much to do and won’t be able to procrastinate forever. Nevertheless, returning to your unfulfilled obligations with a smile on your face will help you accomplish more in the long run.
You have an opportunity today to finish up lots of little tasks at work and at home, including emailing friends, paying bills and cleaning your office. However, don’t be too concerned if you don’t make measurable progress by the end of the day, for it may take a while to get ahead. Nevertheless, your optimism now can motivate you to reach your goals as long as you don’t try to do everything all at once.
You may be holding on to negative feelings about an unfinished conversation yesterday, but you would be wise to let go and move on. You have other fish to fry now and it’s more important to look forward than waste time replaying an interaction that didn’t go as smoothly as expected. Planning for new successes throughout the coming week is much more useful than worrying about the past.
It’s dangerous to make assumptions or jump to conclusions today because once you make up your mind, you’re pretty certain that you are correct. Unfortunately, you could be a victim now of believing your own hype. The good news is that your current breadth of vision can fuel amazing discussions on a variety of interesting topics. As fascinating as your conversations might be, specific things that remain unsaid may be even more important than what is stated out loud.
You may find it challenging today to handle the consequences of your anger that seems to resurface from time to time, even if you already dealt with the original source of the problem. Thankfully, you can lean on your friends for support now, which may be enough to help you over a rough spot. But don’t ask anyone to fix anything; instead, take responsibility by learning from your past mistakes and being flexible enough to adapt to the changing tides.
It’s hard for you to relax today because you have so much to do at work. Although you’re buzzing all over the place with the Sun and Mercury in your professional 10th house, you probably wish you had a few more days to your weekend because you need more time to think. Nevertheless, your time for contemplation may be over for a while. Just enter the flow of activity and figure it out along the way.
It’s often challenging for you to make a long-term decision about your plans, especially when there are so many amazing choices. But don’t let anyone tell you that you need to decide today, for you would be smarter to keep your options open. There is currently a lot of blue sky around you, making everything appear better than it is. Wait until a few clouds return and see where the shadows are cast before going on record with your final answer.
Your anger may develop throughout the day if anyone is trying to talk you out of your actual feelings. Uncharacteristically, you might be willing to change your mind today, but only on your own terms. If others don’t take the time to find out how you truly feel, then you’re probably not going to compromise. However, if they are really interested in your perspective, you can be more open-minded now than they expect.
Establishing your priorities can be a real challenge, especially since you don’t want to make important decisions today. It’s not that you should let go of your objectives; it’s just that you have a lot to gain now by following an intelligent friend or partner for a while. Don’t worry about a missed opportunity because a new situation for advancement at your current job is likely. Paradoxically, easing off on your grip can actually solidify your position and increase the possibility of doing something special.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help navigating through unfamiliar territory today. It’s hard to make sense of it all because there could be one too many options, leaving you overwhelmed and exhausted from trying to figure it all out. Your stress multiplies if you believe that your decision must be final now. Rest assured that you will still be able to change your mind later without much difficulty at all.
Instead of booking your day too rigidly, try giving yourself the flexibility you need. One way to accomplish this is to leave large blocks of time completely unstructured for you to do as you please. It may also help to examine your motives for keeping so busy. Remember, you don’t have to put lots of activities on your schedule now in order to be considered a success.
Talking about your feelings can help to dissipate negativity, but you could easily go overboard now and pretend that everything is fine. You must be careful not to whitewash the truth just because it’s not pretty. Don’t worry about other people’s reactions to your opinion; instead, concentrate on the usefulness and accuracy of your message. Avoid the temptation to share your personal information as a way to get your friends and workmates to take notice.
It’s challenging to find any clear direction today because there are so many planets forming noisy aspects now. We start looking for ways to have more fun when the Moon enters playful Leo at 11:03 am EDT, shifting the energy outward. We’re ready to move on and leave old emotional issues in the past. Nevertheless, they may resurface in a more active manner of expression as Mercury, Venus and Mars create tense aspects with Saturn, Uranus and Pluto.
Your unsettled feelings might drive you to the edge today, yet the adrenaline rush lets you know that you are alive. Relationship drama weighs heavily on your mind now, but once you express your intentions, you’ll feel revitalized. Don’t bother trying to figure out what’s going on; all you need is a positive attitude as you reinvent your future.
You may be self-critical today as strict Saturn leans on sweet Venus. If you fall short of fulfilling your desires, you will probably believe that it was your own fault, no matter how much effort you put forth. Although you might not receive the approval you want now, recognition could still come later. Don’t keep everyone at a distance so you can appear invincible. Others will be more likely to support you if you have the courage to reveal your vulnerability and just be yourself.
Your restlessness may be enjoyable now because your current activity level matches the speed at which your thoughts are unfolding. Although you might actually feel quite productive, you won’t likely accomplish as much as you think you will. Ultimately, the choice is yours: fritter your time away doing one trivial thing after another or consciously concentrate on getting the results you want.
You’re ready to swing into motion today, but you may not want to do anything too quickly. It’s wise to spend the morning in contemplation, going over your ideas and analyzing the possible outcomes to each of your ambitious strategies. However, making careful plans isn’t enough to propel you to your desired destination, so use the fiery Leo Moon’s confidence to initiate action that will bring tangible results.
The Moon’s return to your sign today helps you get your intentions out into the open. Even if you’ve been trying to keep your emotions secret, it may be time to take a risk and share them with others. But you cannot just express every single whim that crosses your mind to whomever you happen to be talking to at the moment. Setting healthy boundaries is crucial now. Your inner life is your business alone, unless you choose to discuss your feelings with someone you trust.
The Moon’s shift into your 12th House of Privacy today raises issues, for you’re pulled between telling others what you feel and revealing nothing at all. You will probably be happier if you share some of your secrets with a close friend, but it’s not wise to ramble on. Stay conscious of your message and stop talking before you diffuse what you need to say.
The Moon enters your 11th House of Social Networking today, inviting you to be a more active participant in your group of friends and associates. Your desire to belong to a community motivates you to get involved with others. However, you must draw a firm line to establish your limits now or you’ll be dragged into a drama that needn’t impact you otherwise. Remember, hold your ground in a way that allows you to still join in the fun.
You could be expected to do something at work today that requires you to set aside your personal agenda. Even if you’re committed to excelling at your job, you don’t like it when others assume that you’ll say yes, even before you do. Instead of immediately rearranging your previous schedule to jump into a new assignment, take a risk and share your concerns. Once your position is out on the table, you’ll be able to negotiate a solution that is comfortable for everyone involved.
You may be even more outspoken than normal, stating your opinion on everything and everyone. Others may be confused by your responses because one moment you’re uplifting and inspirational, and just a few minutes later you’re overly pragmatic and resistant to new ideas. Instead of reacting by saying the first thing that crosses your mind, let everyone know that you need to clarify your conflicting thoughts before you draw any conclusions. No one will fault you for this kind of honesty; a little discretion goes a long way.
You may be struggling today as you try to decide whether to share your desires with someone you admire. You want your feelings to be acknowledged, but you might be afraid of being rejected. If you go ahead and take a risk, at least reveal your emotions consciously, without expecting any particular response. The smartest way to minimize potential emotional discomfort is to stay unattached from the outcome. The real magic now is found in embarking on the journey, and not arriving at the destination.
It’s all too easy for you to slip back into an old, familiar relationship pattern as the Moon enters your 7th House of Companions. Although the Moon connects you to the past, there’s no guarantee that a tried and true method will work today because active Mars is aspecting unruly Uranus. Instead of reacting impulsively, consider the consequences before doing something you might quickly regret.
The Moon’s shift into your 6th House of Health today reminds you of the relationship between diet, exercise and your overall well-being. Even if you’re already eating organically and practicing yoga, it may be time to make minor improvements to your daily regimen. It’s always wise to cultivate more awareness and enhance your lifestyle; even the littlest adjustments now can have significant positive ramifications.
It’s a high frequency week with a busy New Moon Solar Eclipse in jittery Gemini on Wednesday, popping with diverse ideas and changes of heart. Friday night is wild and woolly as the self-protective Cancer Moon runs into stressful planetary patterns, stirring up extreme emotions which can make us feel unsafe. The rest of the weekend is calmer as we’re more adaptable to change, full of bright ideas, and open to new kinds of experiences, especially when the Moon dances into playful Leo on Sunday morning.
The sentimental Cancer Moon pushes your emotional buttons this weekend, yet it’s hard to know whether you want to go forward or in reverse as feelings can change so suddenly. Friday is especially edgy with romantic thunderstorms looming on the horizon. Saturday’s atmosphere is more stable, allowing you to think more clearly about whom and what you really want, then Sunday’s Leo Moon gives you the green light to cut loose and finally have some fun.
You don’t need to go far from home to get all the stimulation you want this weekend. The gentle Cancer Moon is traveling through your neighborly 3rd house, which makes it easy to find entertainment in the course of your daily routine. Saturday has all the ingredients necessary to set the mood for a romantic evening with favorable lunar connections to affectionate Venus and passionate Mars, both now in your sign. Sunday’s perfect for sticking close to home by inviting family and friends over for a cookout or tackling a home project with someone you love.
Shifting values and changing plans can make it tough to feel settled or secure on Friday. In fact, you may feel a bit jumpy all week with the Gemini Solar Eclipse happening on Wednesday.
