Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You appear emotionally tougher than you actually are today, even if you’re scared by your own shadow. But it’s more likely that you’re frightened by unexpressed feelings. Nevertheless, you always retain the option of confronting your suppressed fears instead of running from them. Although this courageous strategy requires a healthy amount of self-esteem, you can draw upon the memory of previous successes to bolster your confidence. The way out is the way through.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
You don’t like wasting time with anyone’s emotional drama, but you might not be able to avoid it now. Unfortunately, logically talking your way around the intensity only makes the situation worse today. It is said that you must fight fire with fire; accordingly, you need to drop all the rational strategies and come from a subjective heart-centered place when fighting water with water. Surrendering to your feelings is the only way to swim.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
You’re ready to engage in a battle to defend your way of doing things today. However, your new approach may not be any more efficient than the old method. Nevertheless, sticking to one over-arching philosophy enables you to judge your progress with an objective eye. Don’t worry if you’re not moving along as quickly as you prefer. Give yourself plenty of time to establish a sustainable rhythm. As Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You are struck by the lightning of inspiration today, but could have a tough time integrating your cosmic creations with your job duties. In fact, the more outrageous your behavior, the less expressive you are. Don’t withdraw emotionally and alienate yourself from everyone else when you really need the human connection now. Before you initiate your great escape, remember the Beatles who sang, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Your opinions are so strong today that you can’t keep quiet. However, you’re concerned about coming on too strong because your current intensity has the potential to spiral out of control. But rather than worrying about how others might react, just let the loving energy of Mercury and Venus shine through your affectionate sign. Sometimes, heartfelt words need to carry extra weight. Fortunately, people expect you proud Lions to roar when you express your truth.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You’re a champ at setting your needs off to the side in order to maintain intellectual clarity. However, it’s not so easy to deny your emotions today, especially if anger bubbles into awareness. It’s unhealthy to ignore your feelings or try to bury them because they’ll only grow in strength and resurface at a less convenient time. You can’t delete a thought in the same way you delete a message. Acknowledging your passions is the first step to transforming them into something positive.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You can’t separate your feelings from your material possessions today. Everything you own has a story attached to it that adds to its unique value. But some things are associated with difficult experiences and bring up fear or regret. Obviously, you can get rid of these offending items by giving them away or selling them. However, it takes extra work to fully process your emotions instead of just eliminating the objects. Embracing the associated memories starts the healing process of letting go.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You are recycling an old feeling one more time, even if you thought you were already done with it. You have experienced some change in the past few weeks, but not enough; your frustration could reach a critical level today when you recognize your limited progress. But don’t let your concerns run away with your entire day. Step back from anything that feels overwhelming now. It’s as if you are putting a wide-angle lens on your camera. Once you see things from a larger perspective, it’s easier to release the past and proceed into the future.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Although you might create a little ruckus to let everyone know you’re serious, you don’t want to be in the spotlight today. Ironically, taking a stand could end up attracting the same attention you were trying to avoid. In the final analysis, your need for privacy will likely outweigh your desire to be understood. It really doesn’t matter if people see the real you or not. Concentrate on finishing your tasks on time, rather than worrying about what others think. Quietly working behind the scenes may ultimately bring the deeper satisfaction you seek.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Engaging with others feeds your ambitions and brings your passions to the surface today. Competing on a team or participating in a group effort is a perfect way to express your commitment to your extended family or community. But watch out for extreme feelings upsetting the delicate balance of interpersonal dynamics. Obviously, pulling someone down won’t ever help you reach the top. Honor your feelings as you honor your friends, but don’t fuel either with irrational expectations.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Your career objectives are quite fixed now and you have very little desire to negotiate those things that are important to you. Although there’s no doubt about your goals, you’re still working on your plans to reach them. Trying to get anyone to join you on your next venture is not a wise strategy because it will only distract you from your quest. You don’t need to be carrying others who will only slow you down. If people aren’t actively supporting you, politely ask them to have the courtesy to get out of your way. Fortune smiles on those who create their own opportunities.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are excited about expanding your world view by taking up a new course of study or embarking on your own exploratory travels. However, you must be willing to open your mind to unknown experiences. If you try to cling to your current perspective, the opportunity for spiritual and emotional growth could be lost. Don’t sit around for days fine-tuning your plans; get rolling as quickly as possible. The cosmic energy is conducive for creating positive change.
