General Meaning: A fisherman can cast the line, but he can only wait for the fish to bite. Your catch will come in its own time; you cannot make it hurry to you — neither by working, nor by planning, nor by wishing. You may need to provide nourishment or support for others; but only through patience can you become the bridge between the fickle fish and the eventual feast. Strength in a time of trial waits quietly, resolutely. Weakness grows agitated, and abandons the effort before the fish bites. Periods of waiting are most fruitful when used for quiet contemplation.
Proceed cautiously, but resolutely, with whatever you are doing. The time and situation are calling for consistency and patience. Waiting is an essential skill; patience is a powerful force. Good timing is an ally of those with inner strength — the kind of strength that allows you to be uncompromisingly honest with yourself, while sticking to the path you have charted. If you persevere with a positive attitude, time weakens even the hardest obstacles. To rush anything, or impatiently force results, stimulates resistance and causes setbacks. At best, you achieve surface changes — the kind that can just as quickly be reversed. Steadfast waiting — while holding to your integrity leads to slow but permanent improvements. In the end, you accomplish something great. Practice patience.

General Meaning: Traditionally, the card usually entitled the Chariot points to a triumphal feeling of freedom, as if the charioteer is being paraded through the streets as a hero (or heroine). The card reflects congratulations for high achievement, and serves as a sign of empowerment.
Huge wheels and frisky steeds speed the rate at which the driver’s willpower can be realized. This kind of charge makes more of the world accessible to anyone ambitious enough to seize the Chariot’s reins. But there is danger in this feeling of freedom, because of the increased rate of change and its power to magnify mistakes in judgment. As a seasoned warrior, the Charioteer is called upon to be extra attentive to the way ahead.
The Sun’s opposition to wild Uranus highlights our need for independence, even while we seek the intimacy of a relationship. Rational Mercury shifts into fair-minded Libra on its way to join the New Moon on Tuesday. Meanwhile, we can get hooked on our own fantasies with a slippery Venus-Neptune alignment. Thankfully, the Moon enters analytical Virgo at 12:49 am EDT, enabling us to separate fact from fiction if we remember to pay attention.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You think you’re being clear about your needs today, but you still may be sending mixed messages unintentionally. On the other hand, a close friend or partner can run hot and cold, leaving you unsure about where you stand. Ultimately, the shifting energy is quite exciting if you’re able to let go of control. But trying to force your agenda on anyone else is a sure invitation to trouble. Your best strategy is to ride the shifting waves without being attached to any one outcome.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
The intensity of your emotions prompts you to retreat so you can be alone today. However, if social activities require you to be around others too much, you might lose your temper and say things you quickly regret. Don’t allow yourself to use harsh words that could undermine a stable relationship. Your key word for the day is cooperation; if anyone wins, then everyone loses.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
You may be feeling the incongruity between your individual needs and your social responsibilities today. Unfortunately, you might believe that you have to sacrifice one for the other, but this isn’t necessarily true. Although you’re traversing some pretty tricky relationship territory now, the key to your success is in finding balance — even if you must settle for less than you want. As always, honesty works best if you can combine telling the truth with kindness.
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)
You have a very specific idea of how you want to appear to others today, but it may be tough to carry out your plan if your true feelings get in the way. You might think that taking a stand to establish your boundaries is important, but direct confrontation won’t bring you the happiness you seek. Instead of working with a fixed agenda now, be as flexible as possible. Allowing for the element of surprise can turn a tense situation into a real thrill ride.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You thought you knew what you were doing, but your plans may come back up for reconsideration today. You realize that your old road has ended, but the new one isn’t as easy to find as you expected. The next phase of your life could take you in an entirely new direction, but it’s harder to make big decisions now because so much is up in the air. Don’t focus on the uncertainty; take definitive action, even if you think that you might change your mind again tomorrow.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You might try to keep your feelings to yourself as the Moon returns to cool Virgo today, but you won’t likely be able to prevent an emotional eruption. You have run out of patience and may think that you have to do something immediately or you’ll lose your chance. Just remember that initiating action is easy now, but you won’t be able to just hit the undo button tomorrow.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Your diplomatic skills are being tested and you may not be as sweet and nice as others expect. The Sun is in your gracious sign, yet its opposition to shocking Uranus today and its square to dark Pluto midweek releases buried emotions as they erupt to the surface. You’re uncharacteristically willing to take a big risk now. Still, it’s a smart idea to avoid confrontation and see where the energy goes before making any drastic moves.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
The practical Virgo Moon is in your 11th House of Dreams and Wishes, yet you’re inadvertently flirting with emotional explosives as revolutionary Uranus urges you to throw caution to the wind. Areas of your life that once felt safe and secure are now feeling chaotic and vulnerable. Fortunately, you have an inspirational message that could have a positive effect on others. Choose your words carefully and stay strong in your convictions.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The picky Virgo Moon’s presence in your 10th House of Career may require you to work extra hard today, but shifty Uranus suggests that your day won’t turn out as you expect. A surprising event can be a powerful catalyst that initiates a chain reaction, releasing suppressed emotions. But this isn’t necessarily your battle to fight. Setting clear boundaries helps you move through this complicated time with confidence and grace.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You’re tempted to rebel at home as unruly Uranus opposes the Sun from your 4th House of Domestic Conditions. Fortunately, the earthy Virgo Moon helps you to suppress some of the craziness and encourages you to maintain the status quo. However, a simple twist of fate can suddenly lead you in an entirely new direction and have you singing a whole new song.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The willful Sun illuminates your key planet Uranus today, demonstrating how comfortable you are with radical change. Still, you don’t need to let every single person know how you feel. Nevertheless, don’t wait for external encouragement before sharing your ideas with someone you trust. Being extra perceptive enables you to manage this rather chaotic day with a healthy perspective and a good sense of humor.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Someone may push you too far today, but you could be the one who ends up in trouble if you respond with equal intensity. Although you might think that you can take on anyone now, especially if you’re feeling self-righteous, caution is advised. Unfortunately, you can have the best of intentions while still overstepping boundaries. Respect other people’s limits or you’ll just waste a lot of time and energy pleading your case in vain.
Mercury in Libra
Sunday, September 25, 2:09 pm PDT, 5:09 pm EDT 12, 2:27 am PDT, 5:27 am EDT
Bright-eyed Mercury sees both sides of any question in this fair-minded sign. Thinking benefits from refined clarity and communication skills, inviting new connections. Discussions can diverge, darken or break down as the messenger planet follows the courses of Venus and the Sun. The trickster planet encounters lightning bolts of brilliance and impatience with Uranus on the 26th and descends to dark waters of insight and suspicion with Pluto on the 28th. New rules of engagement could be signed with Mercury’s conjunction to serious Saturn on October 6.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
A very pudgy cat will annoy you, today.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You will notice an odd stone “egg” in an antique shop. Don’t bring it home. They’re very hungry right after they hatch.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It will occur to you to wonder, what if Jesus had actually said “The geek shall inherit the earth”, but was just misquoted? Then you’ll think of Bill Gates. Then you’ll start to worry.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
An old man with bad teeth will whack you with his cane today, as you walk past. He’ll pretend it was an accident.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
A hive of naked mole rats will move in with you today. You will find that they are relatively tidy creatures, but that it’s a trifle difficult to explain their presence to your friends.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Today you will begin a new hobby: collecting spores, molds, and fungus. You will find it richly rewarding, in a spiritual sense.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You will discover that you can wiggle your ears today, and will actually become quite good at it. People will invite you to parties.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You will try to alleviate the boredom you feel by making something creative with twine. Fortunately, it will work, but you’ll need a lot of twine.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Good day for a nice nap.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You will stack furniture in the bathtub, today. That’s just the sort of thing you would do, your friends will say.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
You will find a biography of some famous dead person, at a garage sale, and buy it on a whim. It will change your life. You will also soon take up bricklaying, as a hobby.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You need to stop leaving things to chance. Specifically, when dating, consider what your date does and doesn’t like. In my case, whenever my wife orders a sandwich, I get her dill pickle. If you play your cards right, you may do even better!
