Aries MAR 21 – APR 19
A clear purpose and a tight focus inspire you to use your intellect for a higher purpose. Thankfully, you’re unlikely to be overwhelmed by the drama today because everyone seems to be doing their best to maintain a sense of civility and rationality. Messenger Mercury delivers a much-needed reality check as it runs into authoritative Saturn, but you might try to ignore it if you are convinced your beliefs are correct. Thomas Dewar wrote, “Minds are like parachutes -- they only function when they are open.”
Taurus APR 20 – MAY 20
Confusing optimism with denial will likely lead you down a path that takes you to the wrong destination. Rational Mercury joins up with confining Saturn today, demanding that you pay close attention to the details, especially with respect to your core values and how they conflict with someone else’s. It’s tempting to work yourself into a corner by fearfully clinging to an old habit or belief. Nevertheless, assuming a non-confrontational position allows for multiple points of view. Acknowledging another person’s truth is not the same as embracing it.
Gemini MAY 21 – JUN 20
Maintaining your confidence is nearly impossible today if people are being overly critical of everything you do. Just as you strike up the marching band to play your happy song, someone comes along and rains on your parade. Your happiness suffers when glib Mercury encounters austere Saturn, forcing you to ponder the more serious side of life. You might even consider solitude as a viable alternative to the never-ending uncertainty of relationships. Nevertheless, you know what to do; start squeezing those lemons to make the best batch of lemonade anyone’s ever tasted.
Cancer JUN 21 – JUL 22
Shaking off your lingering negativity is an uphill battle today. You may be discouraged while quick-witted Mercury opposes pessimistic Saturn, but focusing on the issue at hand enables you to turn a bleak situation into a successful endeavor. Although there are heavy responsibilities resting on your shoulders now, you must reconsider your priorities so you can stand up and deal with a potentially frustrating set of circumstances. Examining your resistance is the first step to putting your life back on track.
Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22
Although a wave of discouragement is washing through your life, you can seize this opportunity to assess which commitments are worth keeping, and which ones need to end. This is an excellent time to manifest your heart’s desire into reality by talking about your personal goals. However, concentrating on one specific field of interest may require you to say no to others. The good news is you truly understand the consequences of your current decisions. Clarity is power; the clearer you are about what you want, the more your brain knows how to get there.
Virgo AUG 23 – SEP 22
You’re tempted to shut down and withdraw from communication now, but avoidance will cause much greater problems later on. The gravitas of these times is confirmed when contemplative Mercury joins authoritative Saturn, giving you the impression that your mental meanderings will lead you to the truth. Unfortunately, relying on the logic of your brain diminishes the message of your heart. Honoring your feelings empowers your decisions if you’re also willing to remain open-minded to the needs of others.
Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22
Your fantasies come to an abrupt ending today as someone in your immediate environment reads you the riot act. It may seem as if their criticism lacks understanding and empathy. You might retreat emotionally as your fear of rejection rears its ugly head. Breaking into new ground is not easy to accomplish now, but pushing forward is your smartest strategy. The cosmos is instructing you to be as specific as you can about your desires before striving to fulfill them. There are forces at play that are greater than you, waiting to help you reach your dreams.
Scorpio OCT 23 – NOV 21
Focusing on solutions instead of problems puts you in a positive place where people can respond to you more favorably. Although the course of least resistance is alluring now, don’t let your one-dimensional thinking turn into self-doubt when philosophical Mercury conspires with critical Saturn. Thankfully, your natural curiosity drives you to get to the bottom of a mystery today. You are at the edge of a significant breakthrough if you are ready to move on from outmoded ideas and discover new ones that will better serve your interests. Nelson Mandela said, “It always seem impossible until it’s done.”
Sagittarius NOV 22 – DEC 21
Your mind can shut down the vagaries of your heart so fast today that it leaves your head spinning. Nevertheless, your best ideas are still challenged by nearly everyone that you bring into your inner circle as contentious Mercury strategizes with obstinate Saturn in your very social sign. Thoughtfully consider your next move or you will find yourself backpedaling sooner than you think. Listen to those around you; applying self-restraint now is more effective than doing damage control later on.
Capricorn DEC 22 – JAN 19
Although you’re looking for solid answers, people probably give you weak excuses if you try to pin them down. If you’re not receiving the approval you desire today, or if others disappoint you in some other manner, don’t take it so personally. It’s all too easy now to see everything in a negative light as perceptive Mercury hooks up with cold Saturn. This sobering conjunction lands in your 12th House of Inner Peace, rattling your confidence while you yearn for something greater than material satisfaction. Moshe Dayan said, “Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.”
Aquarius JAN 20 – FEB 18
You may feel restrained by the necessity to work as part of a group today. However, your position is different than everyone else’s and you’re compelled to share it regardless of the consequences. The stakes of the current conflict are raised and then raised again; power struggles are symptomatic of repressed anger that needs to find constructive expression. Nevertheless, consider the cost of doing battle before you start a fight that escalates tension instead of resolving it.
Pisces FEB 19 – MAR 20
It doesn’t seem right if your best ideas are shot down today before they are even heard. However, messenger Mercury’s conjunction with strict Saturn is likely to reveal the weakest links in your chain of logic. It’s a mistake to hunker down and resist the opposition now; there will be time for fighting soon enough. Instead, listen to the feedback, even if it’s excessive in its negativity. Don’t fall into the trap of self-doubt. Figure out what you can do to upgrade your game, and then fearlessly put your plan into motion.
