Astrology Today: Monday, August 25, 2014 – New Moon

Astrology Today: Monday, August 25, 2014 – New Moon

Monday morning the Moon moves into Virgo and immediate conjunction with the Sun. The exact conjunction is the new moon. The new moon opposes Neptune in Pisces, and the new moon ruler, Mercury, sextiles the Mars Saturn conjunction.

The energetic renewal concerns itself with the balance of the grounded mind-body connection and the spirit. What do you know and feel in your bones? What do you believe? These may not be on the same page, but the do have to balance. This is the time to address that.

There is also an emphasis here on physical health and well-being. It’s a good time to put new systems into place.

Earthy Virgo Mercury’s sextile to Mars and Saturn in water translates thought and perception into action, work. It’s likely to be long-term work, but with the combo of Mars and Mercury in aspect to Uranus, it may be preceded by a quick JOLT.

Venus in Leo squares Mars-Saturn. I don’t think the net effect of this is going to feel all that great. And I think it’s going to take some work to turn a profit… real or metaphorical. It’s a work to please aspect, but it can be done.

Mercury opposes Chiron in Pisces. If you ask someone a question, don’t criticize their answer. Perfection stands across from scars. Health stands across from woundedness. The nurse stands across from the patient, but the patient may be an angel in disguise. A little cross contamination goes a long way. Compassionate healing takes place when they mix, on BOTH sides. Each may benefit.

The Venus-Saturn and the Mars-Saturn energies are potent. They’re pointy. Rough. But the new moon is laced with compassion. With the interplay of these energies, this renewal can be magnificent. This may be the push that overcomes inertia and propels one into a new phase.

If Today is Your Birthday: August 25

If Today is Your Birthday: August 25

The Year Ahead

Forecast for August 2014 to August 2015

 

Your clever mind, warm approach, and strength of character are traits that naturally put you into a position of quiet leadership. You are articulate and make an engaging conversationalist, and you especially love to talk with people in tete a tete situations. Your curiosity is powerful. You pick up and analyze the details of any given situation, and you need to know. As logical and analytical as you are, you nevertheless have powerful intuition, which you tend to develop more strongly as you mature – it takes experience to learn to trust it. You are a natural teacher, not because you want to prove what you know, but rather because you have a true love of knowledge and wisdom. You gravitate towards romantic partners who reflect dynamism, responsibility, and a strong work ethic. You are very idealistic in love. Famous people born today: Leonard Bernstein, Sean Connery, Gene Simmons, Elvis Costello, Billy Ray Cyrus, Claudia Schiffer, Blake Lively, Alexander Skarsgard, Rachel Bilson, Tim Burton.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.

Transiting Saturn squares your Sun from January 2015 forward, and will have you reorganizing your priorities. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time during this period, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! This is a time for working hard, but it’s important to make time for relaxation and meditation as well. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, the best strategy is to take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Recognize that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you should be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.

You can convey your ideas more powerfully this year. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be part of the picture. There can be more activity with young people, making connections, and learning. You are more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual. There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.

You can bring great discipline and meaning to mental work of any kind this year. As far as mental output goes, you are more productive in a reliable and consistent way. You derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if you can readily attach meaning to it. You are likely to enjoy dramatically increased powers of concentration. This is an excellent year in which to cultivate patience as well as to weed out the unnecessary in order to focus on what really matters. You may be more deliberate in how you approach communicating with others, choosing your words more carefully and successfully. Improved communications is the end result, and you might be surprised at how this can improve your success in general.

Watch for competitiveness or tension in your social life, as your passions are ignited this year, whether your feelings are of love or anger. Your social life is certainly more active this year, but you are also tuned in to working towards practical goals. This is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high. You derive special satisfaction from a job well done. This is an excellent time to cultivate patience.

With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.

This is a year of new beginnings and fresh energy for making important changes. It’s also a powerful year for focus and commitment, but you should watch for a tendency to work yourself too hard. When it comes to your social life, try not to set up unhealthy expectations. There can be an increased ability to focus on those things that truly matter, and you can be very productive as a result. This is a strong period for better organizing significant areas of your life.

2014 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.

2015 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 25th

The perfectionist Virgo New Moon at 10:12 am EDT sends mixed messages from the cosmos today. The wildly expressive Venus-Uranus trine awakens unconventional desires and tempts us to act on our unpredictable feelings. However, we hit a wall when hot Mars runs into cold Saturn in powerful Scorpio, stopping irresponsible behavior in its tracks. Fortunately, clear communication saves the day as messenger Mercury joins in to support Mars and Saturn.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re eager to explore new territory, but the cautious Virgo New Moon falls in your 6th House of Habits, holding you back until you have enough information to make an informed decision. Unfortunately, initiating change is impossible if you are too attached to your old routine. Thankfully, you could successfully launch a new project if you can pursue your unconventional ideas in a controlled manner. Your frustration with delays could dissipate quickly once you accept the limitations of your current circumstances and demonstrate your willingness to work within them

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You must be extra attentive to other people’s feelings now if you want your relationships to grow this week. You might believe that rules are for everyone else except you while your key planet Venus resonates with rebellious Uranus. Although the Virgo New Moon dances in your 5th House of Love and Creativity, an authority figure might sweep in and rain on your parade. But if you’re willing to put in the extra effort, you could be rewarded with a magical experience. Keep up the good work; finding pleasure is easier when you’re doing something of value.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You want all your plans to unfold perfectly today, but your disappointment won’t likely show if the results of your work fall short of your expectations. The exacting Virgo New Moon influences your 4th House of Security, pressuring you to reconsider the details of your schedule one more time. But even with plenty of preparation, you still won’t be able to anticipate what happens next. Letting go of your preconceived notions eases your worry while also adding an edge of excitement to your day. Spontaneity is your friend.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You can’t allow distractions to pull you off course today because people are depending on you to deliver on your promises. However, the pace of events and the variety of interactions in your life are on the upswing as the Virgo New Moon activates your 3rd House of Immediate Environment. Practicing self-discipline will help you accomplish your goals, but don’t close yourself off to the amazing growth you could experience if you meander off the beaten path for a while. Not all those who wander are lost

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may feel as if you’re in harmony with your core beliefs now that the pragmatic Virgo New Moon triggers your 2nd House of Self-Worth. However, your strong convictions can pit your will against someone else who is also passionate about his or her beliefs. Don’t act so cocky that you miss a perfect opportunity to appreciate a variety of perspectives. Gentle yet persistent self-exploration is exactly what the doctor ordered today; just remember to listen as much as you speak

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could be entangled in an internal argument about whether to move forward and deepen an existing commitment now or to head off in an entirely new direction. Today’s reactive New Moon in your competent sign stimulates your 1st House of Personality, marking a turning point in how you relate to others. Although you may consider making sudden changes, ultimately your analytical approach enables you to see a a myriad of alternative outcomes to your current situation. Entertain all the possibilities before selecting the best one to pursue with unwavering passion.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You have a lot to gain by tuning into your imagination today. The orderly Virgo New Moon energizes your 12th House of Fantasy, inspiring you to imagine the most creative scenarios possible. Meanwhile, romantic Venus is busy spicing up your relationship life and fueling your desires. Paradoxically, making a schedule and adhering to it gives you the time to follow your dreams. Excitement abounds now, so it is important to keep centering yourself while anticipating the fun ahead.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are often a force to be reckoned with because you are absolutely fixed in your purpose. In fact, you’re not likely to bend to someone else’s demands today, regardless of the pressure. You have your own trajectory and, if necessary, will fly solo into the future. But self-doubt might surface because the analytical Virgo New Moon intensifies your 11th House of Groups, prompting you to question whether or not you can find satisfaction on your own. Nevertheless, your willingness to break away from the crowd to express your individuality is your current key to success.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your words have such a powerful impact today that you need to be careful how you use them. Today’s rational Virgo New Moon occupies your 10th House of Authority, demanding that you acknowledge your role within your community or at your workplace. Others place a lot of stock in what you say now, even if you secretly lack self-confidence. Although exercising caution may be the smartest way to steer clear of trouble, you might be willing to sacrifice peace in order to add more adventure into your life.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although your self-restraint is legendary, it may be a struggle to stay out of trouble today. A cosmic drama is playing out in your life as you overcome the obstacles standing between you and success. The Virgo New Moon lands in your 9th House of Adventure, encouraging you to dream of grandiose schemes and exotic places. But a Mars-Saturn hookup requires you to take your foot off the accelerator before you lose control of the wheel. Fortunately, making concrete plans now can better your chances of reaching your destination later on.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You have more than your fair share of practical thinking to do today if you’re in the process of buying a home, car or some other jointly owned property. Don’t rush into making any sort of investment on a whim because a promising purchase could quickly turn sour unless you are diligent in your research. The Virgo New Moon stirs your 8th House of Shared Resources, making relationship dynamics more complicated. A calculated risk may work in your advantage, but there are no free lunches now. You must put in the blood, sweat and tears if you want to reap the rewards.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

If you are waiting for the right moment to share something that’s been on your mind, don’t skirt around the edges any longer. You have thought about what you want to say long enough. However, the picky Virgo New Moon’s presence in your 7th House of Relationships could indicate that others are overly critical about your words. Thankfully, you can tilt the odds in your favor by being fully prepared for any response. Just be sure to balance your need to be heard with your willingness to take the feedback you receive to heart.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, August 24

Events may not unfold according to our previous plans today. In fact, there could be so many twists and turns that we forget where we were going. Erratic Uranus is in the cosmic spotlight today, bringing unexpected breakthroughs to old problems while possibly adding a few new ones. Meanwhile, the dramatic Leo Moon fires up our emotions so we might lose our tempers. Nevertheless, karma will stop us in our tracks if we push our agendas too hard.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You have so many plates spinning on sticks today that you can’t keep up with all of them. Although the playful Leo Moon encourages you to stir up some fun, you could quickly realize that making time for yourself isn’t going to be as easy as you thought. Nevertheless, you spontaneous Rams are able to respond to unforeseen circumstances better than anyone. However, before you accept a surprise invitation, consider what you may need to give up in order to add something else to your busy schedule. Choose quality over quantity and you can’t go wrong.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It may feel like the perfect day to stay at home and focus on long overdue creative projects. Even if you decide to head out today, your daydreams follow you around everywhere you go. Your current need for social interaction conflicts with your desire for solitude now. Rather than attempting to choose between your inner and outer worlds, be present in both realms and see where your flexible approach takes you.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re buzzing around like a bee without much to show for your work yet; however, you haven’t lost sight of your larger goals. But your need for tangible results grows so insistent now that you might have to modify your schedule sooner than you wish. You know what you want to do but could run out of energy too soon. Stop wasting your precious time on superfluous distractions. Come back to the hive and focus on the real task at hand instead of escaping into the field of possibilities.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Dealing with a personal financial matter in a creative manner might bring you the positive results you seek. However, thinking too far outside of the box today could tumble your precarious house of cards. It’s possible that you haven’t thought your plan through as carefully as you should. Still, you may be able to find a way to maneuver around an obstacle that has prevented you from buying something you want. It’s better to be safe than sorry; your current purchase is likely a smart move now as long as you’re not fooling yourself.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re doing your best to keep your plans to yourself today, but people seem to know what you’re thinking anyhow. Although you usually don’t hide in the shadows, it’s not like you always want to broadcast your feelings on the evening news either. However, everyone is reading your thoughts now as if they have been printed and pinned to your forehead. Nevertheless, there’s no reason to avoid engaging with others, for the give and take can actually help you clarify what you truly want. Don’t let your pride stop you from connecting with those you love.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You’re not saying everything that’s on your mind today and you have good reason for your secrecy. Other people may mistakenly believe that you’re already telling the whole story, but that’s merely a false assumption. Meanwhile, you realize that it’s more advantageous to circumvent a conflict now than it is to reveal all your true emotions. Enjoy the twists and turns of your thoughts without feeling the need to rock the boat.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may believe you are at a point of no return, but you can’t put your finger on anything unusual that’s happening right now. Nevertheless, you might need to make a decision within the next few days that could have long-lasting impact on your earning power. You’re extremely optimistic about the eventual outcome, but could be seriously concerned about the immediate future. Don’t let the weight of your current responsibilities negatively influence the potential for success.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Handling an internal conflict between your head and your heart is likely quite familiar to you. Logically, you know what you should do today and are resigned to play your hand accordingly. But emotionally, you aren’t as certain. There are aspects of your future that are quite appealing and you don’t want to jeopardize what you already have in place. This is not the best time to turn everything upside down just because you are unsure of your path. Patience, grasshopper; clarity will arrive sooner than you expect.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Stepping into a leadership role is natural today because you could persuade others to join you on nearly any venture you conjure up. At first blush, relying on your charm seems like a great idea since you appear to be at the top of your game. However, real danger may be lurking in the shadows if you go off on an ill-conceived adventure with your entourage in tow. Stop yourself before you do something everyone might regret. Taking the right preventive medicine is healthier now than trying to manage the unpleasant symptoms that will manifest later on.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are not content to hang out splashing around in shallow waters today. You’re being called into the deeper mysteries, where spiritual meaning overshadows the primacy of reality itself. This journey may not be an easy one; an old emotional wound might come back to haunt you when you least expect it. Healing can occur on many levels if you are willing to accept a surprise visitation from your past as a blessing in disguise.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Nearly everything you do creates an immediate reaction now with three planets clustered in your 7th House of Relationships. But the responses you receive from others aren’t necessarily what you expect. You need to manage things as they happen, even if it takes time and energy from previously scheduled activities. Don’t try to stick to a predetermined timetable; as frustrated as you might be by the distractions, there may not be much you can do to change the course of events today. Relaxing the reigns of control helps to ease the tension for everyone involved.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

There’s no escaping into familiar fantasies today because you have important responsibilities to fulfill. Nevertheless, no one can take away your irrepressible desire to dream. It’s just that you’re continually snapped back into the real world each time you drift away, for there are pressing issues that demand your attention. The deadlines are real, so stay on task as much as possible now. Hang in there; thankfully, the current sense of urgency will begin to fade after tomorrow’s New Moon.

Let’s See What The Planets Have In Store For You, Aug. 25th – 31st

Weekly Astrology: August 25-31, 2014

Cosmic stress? Do what brings you peace…

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of venus in leo, new moon, astrology

Are you ready to get your act together? This week kicks off with the perfect lunation that will allow you to do exactly that. You’ll have to act fast, though, because after Tuesday there’s a bit of cosmic stress.

Monday, August 25: New Moon in Virgo; Mercury in Virgo sextile Mars and Saturn in Scorpio; Venus in Leo trine Uranus; Mars conjunct Saturn

On Monday, a New Moon in Virgo will allow you to begin a habit that will improve your health, productivity or efficiency. If you need to organize any area of your life, be sure to act after this lunation.

Also on Monday, Mercury in Virgo will sextile both Mars and Saturn, allowing you to direct your plans with precision and confidence. Mars conjunct Saturn in Scorpio allows you to get to the heart of any situation and dig deep to transform at the roots. As for love? With Venus trine Uranus on Monday, you and someone special might enjoy an unexpected treat.

Tuesday, August 26 and Wednesday, August 27: Venus in Leo square Saturn and Venus square Mars

Unfortunately, the mood will shift dramatically by Tuesday, when Venus in Leo locks into a square with Saturn, and then squares Mars on Wednesday. Love will not be easy on these days, and it’ll be difficult to get what you want out of romance.

Your best bet? Decide you’ll be the one who gives unconditionally. While your lover may not show appreciation or reciprocation on these days, at least you’ll know you’re taking the high road in matters of the heart.

Friday, August 29: Sun opposite Neptune

On Friday, the Sun will oppose Neptune, and you’ll best direct this aspect in an artistic or imaginative pursuit. If you feel you’re floundering, perhaps you’re better off indulging in a healthy escape. Attend a concert, hit the beach or make it a spa day. Do what gives you peace.

If Today is Your Birthday: August 23

If Today is Your Birthday: August 23

 

Forecast for August 2014 to August 2015

 

Your mind is sharp and you love to talk! You may grow into this quality–beginning life as a quiet child and, over the years, you discover your voice. An interesting conversationalist, you are appreciated for both your sense of humor and sense of fun. Your creativity is strong, although you are often more of an “idea person”. You believe in your dreams, and you are more than willing to put effort into materializing them. In love, you easily attract others to you, but you can experience your share of ups and downs in your relationships. Part of the reason for this is a strong idealistic streak. You are generous and warm-hearted with your lovers, and you are willing to bend over backwards for them. However, your expectations in love may be high. Famous people born today: Barbara Eden, Gene Kelly, River Phoenix, Shelley Long, Kobe Bryant, Ray Park, Scott Kaan, Rick Springfield.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more “down time” than normal, and this is natural, even good for you this year.

Transiting Saturn squares your Sun from December forward, and will have you reorganizing your priorities. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time during this period, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! This is a time for working hard, but it’s important to make time for relaxation and meditation as well. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, the best strategy is to take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Recognize that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you should be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.

You can convey your ideas more powerfully this year. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be part of the picture. There can be more activity with young people, making connections, and learning. You are more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual. There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.

You can bring great discipline and meaning to mental work of any kind this year. As far as mental output goes, you are more productive in a reliable and consistent way. You derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if you can readily attach meaning to it. You are likely to enjoy dramatically increased powers of concentration. This is an excellent year in which to cultivate patience as well as to weed out the unnecessary in order to focus on what really matters. You may be more deliberate in how you approach communicating with others, choosing your words more carefully and successfully. Improved communications is the end result, and you might be surprised at how this can improve your success in general.

Watch for competitiveness or tension in your social life, as your passions are ignited this year, whether your feelings are of love or anger. Your social life is certainly more active this year, but you are also tuned in to working towards practical goals. This is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high. You derive special satisfaction from a job well done. This is an excellent time to cultivate patience.

With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.

This is a powerful year for focus and commitment, but you should watch for a tendency to work yourself too hard, and with your social life, to set your expectations too high. There can be an increased ability to focus on those things that truly matter, and you can be very productive as a result. This is a strong year for better organizing significant areas of your life.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Sunday, Aug. 23rd

Events may not unfold according to our previous plans today. In fact, there could be so many twists and turns that we forget where we were going. Erratic Uranus is in the cosmic spotlight today, bringing unexpected breakthroughs to old problems while possibly adding a few new ones. Meanwhile, the dramatic Leo Moon fires up our emotions so we might lose our tempers. Nevertheless, karma will stop us in our tracks if we push our agendas too hard.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You have so many plates spinning on sticks today that you can’t keep up with all of them. Although the playful Leo Moon encourages you to stir up some fun, you could quickly realize that making time for yourself isn’t going to be as easy as you thought. Nevertheless, you spontaneous Rams are able to respond to unforeseen circumstances better than anyone. However, before you accept a surprise invitation, consider what you may need to give up in order to add something else to your busy schedule. Choose quality over quantity and you can’t go wrong.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It may feel like the perfect day to stay at home and focus on long overdue creative projects. Even if you decide to head out today, your daydreams follow you around everywhere you go. Your current need for social interaction conflicts with your desire for solitude now. Rather than attempting to choose between your inner and outer worlds, be present in both realms and see where your flexible approach takes you.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re buzzing around like a bee without much to show for your work yet; however, you haven’t lost sight of your larger goals. But your need for tangible results grows so insistent now that you might have to modify your schedule sooner than you wish. You know what you want to do but could run out of energy too soon. Stop wasting your precious time on superfluous distractions. Come back to the hive and focus on the real task at hand instead of escaping into the field of possibilities.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Dealing with a personal financial matter in a creative manner might bring you the positive results you seek. However, thinking too far outside of the box today could tumble your precarious house of cards. It’s possible that you haven’t thought your plan through as carefully as you should. Still, you may be able to find a way to maneuver around an obstacle that has prevented you from buying something you want. It’s better to be safe than sorry; your current purchase is likely a smart move now as long as you’re not fooling yourself.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re doing your best to keep your plans to yourself today, but people seem to know what you’re thinking anyhow. Although you usually don’t hide in the shadows, it’s not like you always want to broadcast your feelings on the evening news either. However, everyone is reading your thoughts now as if they have been printed and pinned to your forehead. Nevertheless, there’s no reason to avoid engaging with others, for the give and take can actually help you clarify what you truly want. Don’t let your pride stop you from connecting with those you love.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You’re not saying everything that’s on your mind today and you have good reason for your secrecy. Other people may mistakenly believe that you’re already telling the whole story, but that’s merely a false assumption. Meanwhile, you realize that it’s more advantageous to circumvent a conflict now than it is to reveal all your true emotions. Enjoy the twists and turns of your thoughts without feeling the need to rock the boat.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may believe you are at a point of no return, but you can’t put your finger on anything unusual that’s happening right now. Nevertheless, you might need to make a decision within the next few days that could have long-lasting impact on your earning power. You’re extremely optimistic about the eventual outcome, but could be seriously concerned about the immediate future. Don’t let the weight of your current responsibilities negatively influence the potential for success.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Handling an internal conflict between your head and your heart is likely quite familiar to you. Logically, you know what you should do today and are resigned to play your hand accordingly. But emotionally, you aren’t as certain. There are aspects of your future that are quite appealing and you don’t want to jeopardize what you already have in place. This is not the best time to turn everything upside down just because you are unsure of your path. Patience, grasshopper; clarity will arrive sooner than you expect.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Stepping into a leadership role is natural today because you could persuade others to join you on nearly any venture you conjure up. At first blush, relying on your charm seems like a great idea since you appear to be at the top of your game. However, real danger may be lurking in the shadows if you go off on an ill-conceived adventure with your entourage in tow. Stop yourself before you do something everyone might regret. Taking the right preventive medicine is healthier now than trying to manage the unpleasant symptoms that will manifest later on.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are not content to hang out splashing around in shallow waters today. You’re being called into the deeper mysteries, where spiritual meaning overshadows the primacy of reality itself. This journey may not be an easy one; an old emotional wound might come back to haunt you when you least expect it. Healing can occur on many levels if you are willing to accept a surprise visitation from your past as a blessing in disguise.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Nearly everything you do creates an immediate reaction now with three planets clustered in your 7th House of Relationships. But the responses you receive from others aren’t necessarily what you expect. You need to manage things as they happen, even if it takes time and energy from previously scheduled activities. Don’t try to stick to a predetermined timetable; as frustrated as you might be by the distractions, there may not be much you can do to change the course of events today. Relaxing the reigns of control helps to ease the tension for everyone involved.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

There’s no escaping into familiar fantasies today because you have important responsibilities to fulfill. Nevertheless, no one can take away your irrepressible desire to dream. It’s just that you’re continually snapped back into the real world each time you drift away, for there are pressing issues that demand your attention. The deadlines are real, so stay on task as much as possible now. Hang in there; thankfully, the current sense of urgency will begin to fade after tomorrow’s New Moon.
