We’re in touch with our feelings on a very deep level today and our heightened sensitivity can stir up memories of old hurts. The magnetic Scorpio Moon intensifies emotional interactions and raises the stakes in intimate relationships. However, Chiron the Wounded Healer is contacted by messenger Mercury, bringing our vulnerabilities close to the surface. We are motivated to share our secrets even if we can’t tell where our disclosures will lead.

The distinction between friendship and courtship might be a subtle one now, but it’s crucial to be conscious of the difference. Even if you’re not seeking more from a relationship, you still can benefit greatly from being aware of your emotions whether expressed or not. However, you don’t need to do anything special in order to attain love. Your current lesson is learned by fully experiencing the desires of your heart without attempting to make anyone else responsible for your happiness.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You could withdraw from an interaction with a friend today because the energy has grown too intense and you believe that it isn’t leading in a direction that serves your best interests. However, your urgent need to establish firm boundaries doesn’t necessarily mean the relationship isn’t a healthy one; it simply clarifies a limitation that is wise to acknowledge. Recognizing the truth frees you from confusion of unexpressed assumptions. Navigating carefully around emotional landmines now might be enough to put things back on track.

You may have a detailed picture of exactly what you want to do today, yet nagging self-doubt stands in your way of explaining your plans to anyone else. You might worry that your words won’t clearly express what’s in your mind. Instead of taking an extemporaneous approach and making it up as you go, think about your message before opening your mouth. But don’t be so rigid that there’s no give and take. Once you share your initial thoughts, let the conversation flow back and forth organically, without worrying about where it leads.

You might be afraid that you recently overstepped someone’s boundaries and wonder if you should apologize and retreat. However, you could feel even more insecure once you express your regret. Fortunately, you probably weren’t as far out of line as you think, so it may not be necessary to say anything about it at all. Still, displaying your vulnerability reveals a hidden part of you and is a constructive way to increase the emotional bond with a significant person in your life. The choice is yours; but you’ll never know the truth unless you take a risk and speak your piece.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Suppressing your annoyance is challenging if a friend misunderstands you today. Your frustration might already be obvious because of a recent disagreement between the two of you; however, the apparent gulf probably seems wider than it is in reality. Recalling another time when you resolved a problem by sharing your feelings can guide you through the current situation. Make the first move and express what’s on your mind now. Opening communication channels not only helps others understand your point of view but also could bring you closer in the process.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You don’t necessarily believe you deserve any extra recognition for your efforts at work, but ironically, you might feel hurt today if you aren’t acknowledged by your peers. You know you have been doing more than your fair share, so it’s not too much of a stretch to dream about receiving a raise or, at least, a pat on the back. However, it’s not productive to dwell on your fantasies now, so quickly process any disappointment you experience and get back to the tasks at hand. True validation of a job well done comes from within.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You rationally know all the reasons why you can’t have everything you want now, but intellectual awareness doesn’t diminish your desires. However, it’s helpful to realize that some of the restraints may be self-imposed and arise from your fear of being vulnerable when you’re being so honest. Go ahead and share your feelings but don’t push your luck too far. The simple act of initiating a conversation can open the door to emotional fulfillment as long as your expectations aren’t set in stone.

You are sometimes attracted to the shady side of Love Street where the Sun doesn’t shine. You understand that sweet delights and emotional goodies are possible once you work your way through the darker feelings that hide in the shadows. However, you may be stuck today, unable to push through old negative patterns. There’s no need to be overly concerned, but don’t slip into denial either. Learn from every experience; the clouds will clear soon enough, leaving you wiser and happier than before your journey began.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You might try to gloss over a persistent relationship dilemma with clever conversation and witty jokes. You may subscribe to the belief that focusing on a problem could actually make it worse. However, avoiding your feelings is more damaging to a lasting partnership now than directly facing the truth — even if it makes you nervous. Demonstrate your courage by willingly digging into the most intense issues. The formula is simple: if you do your emotional processing today, you should feel like your old self tomorrow.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You can feel the electrical tension in the air now, making your hair stand on end. It’s as if you know an emotional storm is brewing on the horizon, even if the current dynamics seem serenely calm. The fact of the matter is it’s going to take time for life to return to normal. The good news is that you sense the anticipation of positive changes around the next bend. But don’t wait to see what happens next; instead, create a concrete plan for exactly what you envision for your future and then get busy making it happen.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The surreal quality of your life could be disconcerting because you don’t understand where the strange energy is coming from. However, it may not be the best use of your time to deconstruct the principles at work. Instead, work hard to manifest your fantasies without trying to explain the deeper meaning of everything. Focus on the mundane rather than the metaphysical. Start by asking for exactly what you want. But remember, it’s just as important to be in a receptive frame of mind when the future arrives as you want it.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your high ideals motivate you and others to do amazing things today. Your strength of conviction originates from your unwavering compassion, yet it’s your ability to maintain objectivity now that makes you so effective. Detaching from an emotional situation doesn’t mean you care any less; in fact, it gives you the impetus to separate your personal desires from the needs of a larger group. But don’t expect miracles to happen overnight; a small amount of progress goes a long way toward reaching your altruistic goals.
