We’re uncomfortable while visiting unexplored territory today, but we may choose to go there, nonetheless. The Moon shifts into nurturing Cancer at 11:24 am EDT, raising our fears about emotional safety. Meanwhile, pioneering Mars — only a few days into adventurous Sagittarius — inspires us on our journey. Additionally, chatty Mercury crosses the karmic North Node of the Moon, connecting us to significant people from our past or from past lives.

Although you might wish you could lay low as the passive Cancer Moon moves through your 4th House of Security, your key planet Mars energizes your 9th House of Adventure, activating your wanderlust. Ultimately, your frustration level will be intolerable if you can’t get out and fulfill your need for an adrenaline rush. But you may be so eager for some action that you take off before you even know your destination. Your enthusiasm is admirable, but it’s smarter to make a sensible game plan before you dash out the door.

All of a sudden you’re so busy that you might not have enough time to catch your breath. You may even feel a bit anxious about fulfilling your current stack of obligations today.

You are contemplating a major change in your lifestyle these days. Thankfully, the hypersensitive Cancer Moon gives you an uncanny knack for seeing what’s just beyond the horizon. But catching a glimpse of the future now isn’t enough; you also have to take direct action. Don’t just go back for another round of analysis today; announce your intentions and then prove your commitment by rolling up your sleeves and getting down to business.

Don’t assume that you can get anyone else to help you with your work today. Even if you want to get others involved in your project, you’re better off now to undertake it on your own. Going solo may not be your notion of an ideal situation, but it is much better than partnering with the wrong person at this time. Do the groundwork first and then find the right people to support your efforts later when you have more resources at your disposal.

You may feel the need to retreat in order to reconnect with your dreams and there’s no reason to deny your preference today even if you have promises to keep. Following your desires isn’t always the most intelligent thing to do, but it could certainly have a positive impact now. Focus your attention on the present moment, even if you are tempted to look ahead to what’s next. Additionally, eliminating attachments to the past adds to the power of now.

Although you might be dreaming about an exotic getaway to a faraway destination today, the current cosmos encourage you to concentrate your energy on responsibilities closer to home. Fortunately, you can rely on your ability to communicate clearly and objectively as long as you make a concentrated effort to limit the topics of discussion. Avoid the temptation of talking about your fantasies, however vivid and captivating they may be now. Setting priorities enables you to deliver your very best.

You want to offer your assistance to nearly everyone you know, but the simple truth is that you’re struggling to just take care of yourself today. Although it may feel uncomfortable, it’s necessary to be selfish if you want to have anything left over to give others. There’s no reason to be too hard on yourself, especially if you’re just trying to create a healthy balance that works. The rest of the world can fend for itself more than you think.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may be feeling self-sufficient today, yet your desire to detach from others can bring some pitfalls. One problem is that a trusted friend might see you as unable to ask for help or unwilling to receive it. Keep in mind that you don’t have to give up your coveted independence to receive emotional support. Letting someone else slip through your defensive boundaries and into your life could bring you more joy than you expect.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You’re acting as if you’ve had an extra dose of caffeine today because your energy level is buzzing from active Mars gaining traction in your exuberant sign.

It’s your time to start something fabulous. Don’t wait for another invitation from the cosmos; this is it.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You’re able to strike a balance between reasonable caution and radical thought today. However, it’s not easy to keep your final goal in sight if you meet resistance. Don’t give up, even if others tell you that your plans are too unrealistic now. Stay in the game by sharing your new ideas with someone you trust. Be persistent; one of them will hit the proverbial nail on the head.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re seeking opportunities to explore your intuitive realms today, but you must remain practical about meeting your obligations. Thankfully, you won’t have to endlessly analyze the details of your day, for everything is more on track than you expected. Nevertheless, it’s wise to work out the timing of your schedule in advance so you’ll be more prepared for the unexpected twists and turns you encounter along the way. Ironically, being flexible works best when you already have a practical plan in place.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your creativity is out of bounds today with the Moon lighting up your 5th House of Self-Expression. However, you could be so eager to get your personal projects up and running that your performance at work slips. Luckily, supportive lunar aspects can help you smooth over the rough spots, but you might inadvertently make matters worse by taking on too much. Limit your promises to avoid unnecessary problems later on. Establish emotional security so your inner child can come out and play.
