Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


Finding our footing is tricky business while five planets float through dreamy Pisces. The dream world is a powerful source for inspiration, helping to guide us through complicated dramas in the real world. But paying attention to our intuition isn’t always easy on us, especially when a wild Venus-Uranus connection tempts us with disruptive desires. Overstepping our bounds creates an immediate backlash by upsetting the emotional equilibrium.

You may feel inspired to make up for lost time today, especially if you recently delayed making a significant decision.

You might be caught off guard by a wave of anxiety today. Although you may believe that if you don’t do it now -- whatever it is -- you will lose the chance. But your fear of missing a wonderful opportunity could motivate you to make a reckless decision that won’t bring you any closer to happiness. Your current sense of urgency is temporary. If your intentions are clear and your goals are sound, you don’t need to jump. Building momentum over the next few days increases your chances for success.

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

People are in awe of your apparent self-confidence today. You make it look so easy when you are in an energetic flow. You state your position, your intentions, and you start moving in the direction of your vision. Often, your progress is readily observable, increasing everyone’s admiration of your style. However, you must be careful today because you can just as easily offend others by your cavalier approach. Do yourself a favor and consider how your actions might impact those around you. If necessary, ask questions so you’re not flying in the dark. A little extra compassion goes a long way.

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Romantic inclinations can be destabilizing, especially if you reveal your desires unilaterally. However, when you take the time to enter into an open dialogue, your emotions are immediately placed into a relational context. Of course, an entirely different course of action is to simply keep your feelings to yourself -- and sometimes that’s the most appropriate behavior. Allow your story to unfold gradually; moving too quickly only leads to disappointment sooner than later. Dr. Alfred Adler wrote, “Follow your heart but take your brain with you.”

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You might believe that your feelings will settle down today, but it’s nearly impossible to know what others have up their sleeves and how their actions will affect you. You’re trying to stay ahead of the curve by processing your reactions to events as they happen. But a number of things could occur so quickly today that you can’t help but lose some of the ground that you already gained. Don’t give up; even if it takes extra effort, keep your reactions current because relationships can grow complicated if there’s a lag. Thich Nhat Hanh said, “Life is available only in the present moment.”

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Although you intuitively know what someone else is feeling today, you might still go ahead and act on your own agenda. You don’t want to create conflict, but you’re not interested in avoiding it, either, if it means sacrificing your own integrity. Others may not like that you’re so clear about your needs, but they will respect you if you approach the process with compassion. Nevertheless, stay true to your values. Leonardo da Vinci wrote, “It’s easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.”

More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Your actions reflect your feelings today and no one will doubt the clarity of your intentions. Although your behavior appears straightforward, unbeknownst to others there are still unexpressed feelings running around in your mind that can complicate relationships. Do your best to bring those hidden fears and desires out into the open because they will have less power to negatively influence the outcome once they are visible. Psychologist C.G. Jung wrote, “Had I left those images hidden in the emotions, I might have been torn to pieces by them.”

More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

It’s quite unnerving when your emotions are so wild and uncontrollable that you think they could jeopardize your stability. Even if you attempt to keep them quiet, you know they will impact your interactions with others today. Unfortunately, the more you try to ignore your feelings now, the more intense they become. Working with your passions rather than denying them is the only rational strategy. But talking about them doesn’t mean shifting responsibility for them to anyone else. They are yours; own them in a way that doesn’t threaten anyone else, and then move on.

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You like the sensation of being on edge today because it makes you feel as if you’re alive. Although it’s only a very thin line that separates excitement from anxiety, you may be eager to dance as close to the cliff as you can, without going over. Remember, you’ll tire as the day unfolds, so it’s wise to step away from danger or discomfort before it’s too late. Nevertheless, in the words of Paulo Coelho, “The adrenaline and stress of an adventure are better than a thousand peaceful days.”

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Like Alice, you’ve slipped down a rabbit hole today and you are enchanted by all your unexplainable experiences. But as the day wears on, you might wish to return to the normal world of rational cause and effect. Unfortunately, finding your way back home isn’t as easy as tumbling into Wonderland. The harder your try to return, the farther away safety appears. Relax and let yourself continue on the journey as if everything is just as you want it. Once you let go of your preferences, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’re delivered back to the real world.
