Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Nat­u­rally, you pre­fer to be in to­tal con­trol of your fate, but these days you seem to spend more time re­spond­ing to ex­ter­nal cir­cum­stances than cre­at­ing your own di­rec­tion. You’re more de­pen­dent on the skills of other peo­ple and the re­sources they bring to the ta­ble now than is com­fort­able. For­tu­nately, you can still man­i­fest your des­tiny if you re­peat­edly reaf­firm your per­sonal goals. Your in­de­pen­dence is not in jeop­ardy just be­cause you are will­ing to ac­cept some­one else’s gifts in or­der to max­i­mize your po­ten­tial.

Tau­rus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Al­though you re­cently slipped into your fan­tasies and are en­joy­ing your reverie now, it’s time to es­tab­lish a ba­sis for your vi­sions in the three-di­men­sional world. How­ever, the Moon’s cur­rent visit to your 7th House of Com­pan­ions is a gen­tle re­minder that you can’t ig­nore the peo­ple in your life. In­stead of with­draw­ing from so­cial in­ter­ac­tions to­day, it’s bet­ter to fully en­gage in the re­la­tion­ship dance. Your chances for suc­cess im­prove if you face the facts in­stead of hid­ing out in the safety of your imag­i­na­tion.

Gem­ini (May 21 – Jun 20)

You might not be able to avoid the tricky wa­ters you are sail­ing through to­day. Al­though a com­plex re­la­tion­ship sit­u­a­tion is still de­vel­op­ing, it’s ob­vi­ous that you need to sep­a­rate out the big ideas float­ing around so you can dive into a spe­cific prob­lem. Set­ting aside your per­sonal whims helps you han­dle the volatil­ity of the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. Self-re­straint is your se­cret weapon now; save the most im­por­tant dis­cus­sions for later in the evening when the plan­ets are more con­ducive for con­flict res­o­lu­tion.

Can­cer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You are quite adept at ex­press­ing your pas­sions cre­atively to­day with the pow­er­ful Scor­pio Moon’s pres­ence in your 5th House of Spon­tane­ity. Thank­fully, you can claim your share of fun now with­out sac­ri­fic­ing the deeper mean­ing of the mo­ment. Sur­pris­ingly, your emo­tional in­ten­sity is ap­pre­ci­ated by oth­ers. A ro­man­tic en­counter is fa­vored if you’re will­ing to demon­strate your vul­ner­a­bil­ity by hon­estly ask­ing for what you want. You might be pleased with the re­sponse you re­ceive when you re­veal the wishes of your heart.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Com­pli­cated in­ter­per­sonal dy­nam­ics on the home front might lead to a lin­ger­ing con­flict. For­tu­nately, your an­noy­ance has time to set­tle down on its own if you shift the fo­cus by re­turn­ing to school or work to­day. Nev­er­the­less, you can help to ease the pres­sure by ac­knowl­edg­ing the emo­tions that are lurk­ing just be­neath the sur­face and bring­ing them out into the open. Al­though an hon­est con­ver­sa­tion could feel awk­ward at first, it gives you the chance to clear the air of ten­sion be­fore the bad vibes get out of hand.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Com­mu­ni­ca­tion may feel strained to­day, but it’s cru­cial to keep a healthy per­spec­tive on per­sonal and busi­ness re­la­tion­ships in­stead of fo­cus­ing on an is­sue that ul­ti­mately doesn’t mat­ter. Your cur­rent con­cern isn’t about your mes­sage; it’s whether to broach a sen­si­tive topic or re­main silent. Un­for­tu­nately, deny­ing the prob­lem is not a long-term so­lu­tion. Ben Franklin said, “Tricks and treach­ery are the prac­tice of fools who don’t have brains enough to be hon­est.” Sit down for a heart­felt dis­cus­sion now be­fore it is too late.

Li­bra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are an ex­pert at main­tain­ing an even-keeled ap­proach to a stress­ful sit­u­a­tion at work. How­ever, you’re fear­ful of hit­ting rocks that you can­not see to­day. It’s nearly im­pos­si­ble to tell if you are pad­dling into the deeper wa­ters now or if it’s shal­low. Ei­ther way, you must get to the bot­tom of the dilemma or you’ll run aground. Re­assess­ing your po­si­tion en­ables you to reestab­lish equi­lib­rium. Re­con­nect­ing with your core val­ues helps you re­gain con­trol of your ves­sel. Keep­ing your bal­ance is pos­si­ble when you know where you stand.

Scor­pio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

A jour­ney into your pri­vate world of un­ex­pressed emo­tions is often trig­gered by the Moon’s monthly visit to your sign. How­ever, it’s even more com­pli­cated this time around be­cause some­one might ap­pear to be an­gry with you, but won’t share their feel­ings. Thank­fully, there’s no rea­son to strug­gle for un­der­stand­ing now; it’s just your in­se­cu­ri­ties ris­ing to the sur­face. Sim­ply ob­serve what’s hap­pen­ing around you with­out tak­ing ev­ery­thing so per­son­ally; no one can fault your in­ten­tions if your heart is in the right place.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You’re tempted to with­draw into your own world to­day by run­ning off to join a monastery, es­cap­ing to a quiet spot in na­ture or just hid­ing out in your of­fice. Un­for­tu­nately, re­treat isn’t a vi­able op­tion now. There are sim­ply too many de­mands be­ing made on your time. You are obliged to be clear­headed -- not only for your own good, but also for the peo­ple who de­pend on you. Strug­gling to stay in the com­mu­ni­ca­tion loop will pay off over the week­end when so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties bring you the sat­is­fac­tion you seek.

Capri­corn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may ex­pe­ri­ence a sense of de­feat to­day if you have re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to ful­fill that aren’t in your best in­ter­est. You are clear about your long-term goals, but you might need to set them aside for a bit while you do your job. The more you fo­cus on the im­me­di­ate tasks, the faster you will fin­ish. How­ever, it seems as if you’re in the mid­dle of some sort of video game where peo­ple dis­tract you from reach­ing the des­ti­na­tion. You can trick the sys­tem by play­ing along now; po­litely ac­knowl­edge the wishes of oth­ers, but re­turn to your work as quickly as pos­si­ble.

Aquar­ius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are not scared of com­pli­ca­tions; in fact, you like the chal­lenge of dif­fi­cult men­tal puz­zles and com­plex me­chan­i­cal con­cepts. How­ever, you’re not as in­ter­ested in en­tan­gled emo­tional is­sues. Un­for­tu­nately, there might be a weird power strug­gle in your life now that you can­not com­pre­hend. Don’t push for res­o­lu­tion yet. Your pa­tience will be re­warded and you should be able to set­tle the score later in the week with­out any open con­flict. Life is a bal­ance be­tween hold­ing on and let­ting go.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are highly sen­si­tized and can pick up ev­ery sin­gle rip­ple in the wideopen seas of con­scious­ness to­day. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s an im­pos­si­ble task to de­cide what to do with all of the per­cep­tions swirling in your head. The emo­tional in­ten­sity may even be so over­whelm­ing that you feel like giv­ing up. How­ever, con­cen­trat­ing on spe­cific tasks and do­ing them well is your cur­rent key to suc­cess. Leave the big pic­ture for an­other day when you are not so eas­ily dis­tracted.
