The Moon enters Pisces at 11:46 am EST and conjuncts assertive Mars on the way to tomorrow’s New Moon. This cosmic energy agitates previously repressed hostility, but we don’t have to express all that we feel. Impulsive Mars forms a cooperative sextile with passionate Pluto, helping us to bring difficult emotions out into the open without blaming others. A magical Mercury-Pluto quintile gives us the tools to share our emotions with compassion.
Although you are able to get in touch with your inner warrior today, it’s not easy to follow through with decisive action. Ironically, you might feel a bit overwhelmed, even if you are motivated to take charge of your life. If you don’t know where to start, ease up and give yourself permission to float without direction for a while. There’s no need to drive yourself crazy because you’ll regain your bearings naturally by next week.
Your friends may annoy you today if they don’t follow through on their promises. You may become frustrated by their unreliability, but it won’t likely be severe enough to provoke your wrath. Accept full responsibility for your emotions by depending on others less and taking more initiative on your own. Fortunately, if you are aligned with your purpose now, you’ll have a deep well of strength upon which to draw.
It’s difficult to make up your mind today, even if you thought you were sure of your position. If you know what’s right for you now, you may be reconsidering your previous decision very soon. Although you could be accepting of your adaptable nature, someone else may view your fickle behavior as counterproductive. However, don’t worry about what anyone else currently thinks. Just give others the same consideration if they choose to change their minds, too.
The intensity of your feelings makes you feel rejuvenated today because their depth puts you in touch with an endless supply of energy. You’re highly motivated to do something about your passions now, instead of just reflecting on them. Don’t worry if you make someone feel a little uncomfortable. Even if you usually tend to be cautious, letting loose is a good exercise for your soul.
Your inner reality may be in conflict with a current set of circumstances as a tricky situation comes to a head today. You could even temporarily lose your temper, but the results of showing your emotions will probably make everyone feel better in the long run. However, carrying on like a child won’t make anyone happier. Find less extreme ways in which to communicate your needs and others will be more likely to listen.
It’s not fun being bossed around by someone who isn’t as efficient or smart as you are, and today you’re not willing to do all the work while someone else gets the credit. Fortunately, there is no need to do anything drastic to draw attention to yourself. If you continue to pursue your goals and follow your work ethic, others will eventually appreciate your unique contribution.
You may need to work extra hard today, yet it seems as if you’re not making a lot of progress. Your relentless effort and unwavering hope combine to produce an unbeatable strategy now. Set aside any possible discouragement, for you are probably much closer to the finish line than you suspect. And, thankfully, once you reach your destination, others will acknowledge the valuable accomplishments you have achieved along the way.
Physical movement is more critical than usual as your two key planets, Mars and Pluto, flood you with energy. Unfortunately, words may not convey the intensity of your feelings, so a discussion, however heated, might leave you in a state of frustration. However, you’ll be able to break up the tension and settle your nerves by taking a brisk walk or working out at the gym.
You might be confused about your priorities today, but your problems may not be observable by anyone else. Your current dilemma could have you digging deep to question the relationship between your personal interactions and your soul’s purpose. You don’t need to have all the answers now; just be honest about your feelings, even if you don’t understand where they’re leading you.
You may feel like a winner today and, if necessary, are capable of fighting like a champ. Your strength of conviction empowers you to take a stand for something that’s especially meaningful to you. However, pick your battles carefully because it’s not healthy to waste energy over an unimportant ego skirmish where no one will come out ahead. Others will be more likely to listen if you seek more subtle ways of expressing yourself, rather than pursuing open conflict.
There are no quick fixes to an ongoing financial problem, although carefully considered action now can have a positive impact on your circumstances. Fortunately, your current money dilemma has a solution if you are willing to get serious and apply your undivided attention to the situation. Luckily, you can benefit from a smart plan and a strong commitment, so take your time, set priorities and act with fierce intention.
There can be a big difference between your sense of yourself and how someone else perceives you today. You may believe that you are simply responding to a situation normally, but your reactions are swifter and stronger than usual, possibly causing others to think that you’re using unnecessary force. Minimize the current tension by softening your stance and lowering the volume of your voice. Exhibiting flexibility will reduce the intensity all the way around.
