General

A series of complicated aspects creates confusion as we try to sort through the facts. But the truth is hard to find amidst the piles of conflicting information until the Moon plods into stabilizing Taurus at 2:11 pm EST, adding a healthy dose of common sense to our analysis. But reality may be difficult to swallow when our perspectives differ with someone else’s. Power struggles are likely as we negotiate over which point of view will prevail.

Aries
(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

You could miss several subtle cues today, which can create a few awkward situations. You are given a chance to share your feelings with someone, but might not say a word for fear of saying too much. Although you are known to speak your mind without holding back, you realize how precarious the emotional balance is now and will do nearly anything to prevent this house of cards from tumbling down. Your decision to remain silent may not keep you out of trouble, requiring you to clean up a mess after an argument, anyway. Luckily, others will appreciate your truth more than your diplomacy.

Taurus
(Apr 21 - May 21)

You can sense a rather strange vibe that is running through your network of coworkers today and you’re not certain what it means. Although you’re confident that your perceptions are accurate at first, you may begin to doubt yourself as the day progresses. The Moon’s shift into earthy Taurus typically helps to stabilize your emotions, but only heightens your sensitivity to the unknown now, instead. Thankfully, there’s no reason to act on your odd feelings; you only need to pay attention to them as they change throughout the day. Winston Churchill said, “Fear is a reaction; courage is discovery.”

Gemini
(May 22 - Jun 22)

You are easily drawn out from behind your mask today. You’re eager to make people feel as comfortable as you, but it turns out to be a complex task. It seems as if everyone but you is stuck on his or her position and not interested in change -- even if a change would serve them well. A touch of discretion on your part can make all the difference in the world. If you inspire others to feel emotionally safe, they are more likely to shift gears and end up in a better place.

Cancer
(Jun23 - Jul 23)

Separating your unconscious fantasies from patterns in the real world can be tricky business today. However, your unexpressed hopes and dreams leak into nearly every interaction now, infusing even the simplest discussion with mixed signals. Thankfully, the simplistic Taurus Moon encourages you to limit your communication to the most practical issues, so you can get your message across without upsetting anyone else. Psychologist Hans Selye wrote, “Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.”

Leo
(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Emotional or financial entanglements make even the simplest activities more complicated. Your life is intertwined with those closest to you, but you might try to act on your own now, anyhow. Exercise caution when making plans to do something alone because it’s unlikely you can cut the ties effectively. Instead of resisting the natural flow today, choose partnership over a solo venture. It’s a mutual blessing when you directly utilize what someone else brings to the party. Ken Blanchard wrote, “None of us is as smart as all of us.”

Virgo
(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You might feel as if the scriptwriter for today’s drama has cast you in a supporting role. Furthermore, you’re not happy with the sarcastic humor because it feels as if the joke is on you. You don’t like it when a conversation is thrown off track by information suddenly crashing in like unexpected thunder. Nevertheless, you still must react to integrate the new data or you won’t be able to keep up with the changes. Author Deborah Day wrote, “Flexibility requires an open mind and a welcoming of new alternatives.”

Libra
(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You prefer to keep your interpersonal interactions lighthearted today, but every conversation has the potential to slip into an inescapable black hole. Ironically, it feels like metaphysical quicksand, the more you struggle to get out, the faster you sink. But relaxing while in an adrenaline-producing situation isn’t easy because your brain is telling you to fight to be free. Nevertheless, acknowledging the paradox shifts your reality as fast as it was created. Increasing your self-awareness empowers you to change your world.

Scorpio
(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Your intuition has shifted into overdrive, filling your mind with more answers than you have questions. However, it’s not easy to just accept the symbols and thoughts that pop into your head when there’s no simple way to check out their validity. Ironically, the pipeline to other dimensions shrinks when you begin to doubt your psychic connection, cutting you off from the information you need. Remember, every moment is an opportunity to let go and practice trust.

Sagittarius
(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Unexpected events on the home front pull your attention from worldly affairs today. Or, you might be distracted by a flood of childhood memories. Either way, there are personal issues that can prevent you from being fully present in your daily routine. Unfortunately, there’s no off switch that controls your inner awareness and if you try to suppress your thoughts now, they will only grow louder. Instead, don’t be afraid to bring your past back into sharp focus. Only when you embrace the intensity of your family history will it release its grip on you and allow you to move on.

Capricorn
(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

Your basic needs include creating an ambitious schedule that enables you to engage in the world with confidence. But specificity is an elusive concept today and you might have to give up your desire for the stability a detailed agenda affords. Nevertheless, there are some big pieces of your plans that could start to fall in place by the afternoon. Unfortunately, if you try to rush the process, you’ll end up stressed out and frustrated. Focus on what you can fix and forget about what you can’t.

Aquarius
(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

Your uncertainty about a major purchase can eat up a lot of your time today, negatively impacting your productivity in other areas of your life. It’s one thing to know the state of your finances; it’s entirely different to know if it is wise to charge a substantial amount of money onto your credit card in order to make an acquisition. Although it’s easier to justify buying a utilitarian item than an artful object of beauty, they both impinge upon your cash flow. Take your time as you analyze the pros and cons of spending money now, so you don’t regret your lack of resources down the road.

Pisces
(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You might wonder if your conscious decisions really have any influence on the overall trajectory of your life. Days like today demonstrate the importance of unplanned synchronicities as the finger of fate points at you. An event that changes everything in an instant could occur out of the blue. There are no easy answers to the apparently mysterious ways of the universe. But don’t let your temporary powerlessness take over your life. Make decisions as if you were exerting free will, even if, on occasion, the cosmos seems to have an agenda of its own.
