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.
