Others are drawn to your lighthearted, essentially happy and hopeful personality. However, you’re not without an “edge”, and when you want something, you have tremendous stamina to draw upon. Your relationships are extremely important to you, and you can be impulsive in love, following your heart rather than pure logic. You crave security and stability, however, and your family and home life are vital to your sense of peace and happiness. Balance is what you seek, and you strive to be as fair as possible in your dealings with others. Famous people born today: Thomas Wolfe, Gore Vidal, Chubby Checker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tommy Lee, Gwen Stefani, Neve Campbell, Ashlee Simpson.
While generally speaking with Mercury still retrograde it’s best to avoid hard and fast decision making, dear Aries, the Moon in your communications sector most of the day does stimulate a desire to communicate, connect, and collect information. Express yourself and stay flexible – be spontaneous if you feel right about something in your gut. This can be a time for lending someone a hand or acting upon an idea. There can be a nice feeling of camaraderie with a partner or friend. With the Moon moving into your home and family sector tonight, find activities that help build confidence from the ground up, and that are familiar and comforting.
Your intuition is quite sound when it comes to practical and business matters today, dear Taurus. With Mercury still retrograde, we can be a little fuzzy with facts, but you’re in good form for new ideas and instincts with money today. You may simply need to refine them at a later date. You are more inclined to stick with the familiar than to venture out looking for new experiences today. Even so, you could be feeling close to someone who seems to be sharing the same values as you or who looks to you with special respect. Tonight, you enter a more curious lunar period, and it’s a time for branching out and entertaining new possibilities.
This a good day for networking, connecting, and sharing ideas, dear Gemini. The Moon in your sign most of the day tends to magnify your own emotions, at times at the cost of reason. However, this is an important time for getting into touch with your emotional wants and needs, even if they may seem exaggerated at first. You can be craving some “me time”, but can certainly benefit from reaching out to others. Later today, emotional needs don’t seem as urgent, with the Moon moving out of your sign. It’s a good time for reminding yourself of what you do have, and for finding ways to appreciate these things.
There is a tendency for you to keep to yourself much of the day, dear Cancer, or to withdraw a little from mainstream activities in order to regroup on an emotional level. You might be craving a sense of order in your emotional life. It’s natural now to look to the past, settle some issues, close projects, and crave extra rest or time to yourself. The Moon enters your sign later evening, and this tends to have the effect of bringing attention your way. The only real “enemy” with this position of the Moon is impatience. Emotions feel urgent, as if fulfilling your emotional needs is an emergency. These desires will pass, often as quickly as they came on in the first place, but pay attention to what’s left behind of them.
There can be stimulating and even inspiring conversations in your social network today, dear Leo. You might enjoy others’ company more than usual. It’s a great day for networking, connecting, and group activities, and one of the better days for casually communicating in this retrograde Mercury cycle. Doing favors for others may be a good way to express yourself now. Later evening, the Moon moves into your solar twelfth house for a couple days, making it a good time for reflecting on your personal life, particularly with your future in mind, and how you can better develop and improve your attitude towards shaping your life in empowering ways.
You’re more concerned about your responsibilities and performance much of the day, dear Virgo, so that the sooner you meet your obligations, the more relaxed and fulfilled you’ll feel. This afternoon brings lighter energy. Your heart is in your chores now, so that they can be done more happily. You are security-minded and moved to take charge. Projecting a more confident “you” is certainly coming more naturally to you these days and this will continue for some time. Later evening, the need for non-competitive outlets for self-expression emerges quite strongly. The less expected of you, the more naturally you contribute, share, and connect with others at this time.
This can be a good time for sharing ideas and visions with a friend, dear Libra. Honest expression of feelings is the way to go now – it’s charming and winning, frees you of unnecessary guilt, and ultimately, helps you to solve problems. It’s a good time for considering your longer-term goals and plans. Generally speaking with Mercury retrograde in your sign (until the 9th), it’s not the ideal time to expect to know all the details, facts, or figures, but it is a fine time for connecting with a different perspective on your life. Later today, the Moon moves into your career and reputation sector, and this tends to stimulate an increased sense of your responsibilities. The expectations of others can pull you in a particular direction.
Whether it’s through a conversation with someone or with yourself, you’re inclined to pull important matter out from deep inside of you. Thinking, journaling, or ruminating can get you into better touch with your inner needs, wants, and motivations. Discoveries can be truly helpful, and others may be appreciating the insight you share. You’re likely to gravitate towards quiet, healing activities. Tricky issues or ideas can be tackled now with greater ease. By later evening, you’re likely to want to pull yourself up and out, perhaps hungering for more action and experience.
The day’s energies favor making connections, dear Sagittarius, but particularly interacting on one-to-one levels. A partnership or friendship deserves some special attention today. This is a strong day for bonding with someone, especially if you are tuning into nonverbal cues. You have a way of expressing yourself today that draws people in and allows them to open up. Later evening, the Moon moves into your solar eighth house, and you tend to notice and perhaps dwell on more subtle levels. This can be helpful as it is likely to bring you into better touch with your feelings.
Your focus is on the details of your life and getting things into order, and you’re likely to be feeling on top of things today, dear Capricorn. You’ll find that others are thinking and responding rather than reacting, and this allows for a smoother conversation flow. You might receive or give very practical advice. Circumstances may be such that you need to become more organized and efficient with your work and daily life, and energies today are supportive for these goals. Later evening, the Moon moves into your partnership sector, and this tends to bring you into a more sociable mood, or one in which you’d prefer to share your ideas or activities with someone.
You’re not necessarily in the mood to just blend in today, dear Aquarius. In fact, you may be in the mood for some special attention or recognition for your more unique qualities. It’s a strong time for all things creative. You are displaying more confidence, vitality, and optimism. People are drawn to your good humor quite naturally. Later today, you are a little more sensitive to imbalances or inconsistencies in your personal life and environment. A focus on daily routines or on details can be comforting.
You continue to be a little more introspective and cautious today, dear Pisces, with the Moon in your solar fourth house until later evening, but in no way unfriendly. In fact, your feelings are especially warm. It is a good time to set priorities and to enjoy simple things. It’s not a day for pushing or reaching beyond boundaries – there’s plenty of time for that later this month – but it’s a good day for emotionally preparing for more demanding days. Later evening, the Moon’s move into your creativity sector can stimulate a stronger need to express and share yourself with others.
Work, health, and relationships are in big focus this month, dear Aries, and motivation levels are on the increase. From the 9th, strong energy for consulting, negotiating, and partnering is with you, particularly in connection with your work or health goals. You could be teaming up with someone to pursue health and fitness programs, or to get a particular project done, and while you’re typically very independent, this is a great time to let someone in. When it comes to work and career, this is a powerful time for renovations, redesign, and dramatic improvements. Your ambition increases pleasantly now, and you are especially resourceful in your methods. There could be some recognition for efforts that previously were taken for granted. You can be thoroughly enjoying your work or daily routines, and this shows in the finished product. When it comes to the pursuit of better health and well-being, what you may have been lacking recently is patience, but this month puts this shortsightedness behind you. Newfound or increased joy in your work can also bolster health. While you can be quite busy now, you are increasingly turning to study in order to perfect your skills or to gain knowledge. Lifestyle changes implemented now are likely to last. For some of you, you may be discovering your “calling” now and in the coming months. This is an important month for being alert and active. You are especially inventive, creative, and enterprising, particularly with your work, methods, and pet projects. If a fresh start is needed in a partnership, the New Moon on the 12th can provide it. The Full Moon on the 27th can be a call to handle out of control money matters.
Wonderful influences for both work and play are with you this month, dear Taurus. With your ruler, Venus, and Mercury in mutual reception and both direct from the 9th forward, you are in excellent shape mentally. Work benefits the most from this, but relationships improve considerably as well with open lines of communication and attentiveness. Work relationships can improve now, and work projects or health programs get off the ground. There can be surprising or exciting turns of events surrounding romance, children, entertainment, and creative projects. Small risks or innovations can be rewarding. You can be seeking, and likely finding, more meaning in your projects, hobbies, and friendships. Self-improvement efforts are strong. As you pour more of your energy and heart into romantic relationships and creative pursuits, your relationships and work take on new life. Powerful and meaningful connections might be made. Travel and romance may be connected now and in the coming months. The Full Moon on the 27th is in your sign, bringing an emotional epiphany. All month, and especially from the 9th forward, personal magnetism is through the roof. You are certainly attracting positive attention as your more playful impulses surface. This is only set to increase as the month advances, and continues into next month. Enthusiasm for hobbies, entertainment, and other forms of playful expression increases, and opportunities emerge to more thoroughly enjoy yourself. This is also a good month for learning and travel. You’re feeling increasingly freer of the need to sort out family and home matters, and confidence improves.
The month ahead brings home and family matters into strong focus, dear Gemini, as well as romantic, creative, and playful pursuits. Your ruler, Mercury, turns direct on the 9th and around the same time is in mutual reception with attracting Venus. This brings more charm, clarity, and warmth to your presentation. You are being received especially well. You have energetic Mars and expansive Jupiter in your sector of soul/home all month, and Venus entering here on the 8th. This brings many opportunities to improve relationships with family and with yourself! It’s also good for creative improvements to the physical home, not only emotional ones. Ideas for having fun and making your accommodations more livable are abundant. You’ll need to be especially active on the domestic front in order to truly benefit from these energies – Mars here becomes temperamental and disruptive if it doesn’t have something constructive to do! Generally speaking, this month and extending until June is a period very important for laying down foundations and setting up a base of operations on career or life-path levels, particularly for those of you with Gemini Ascendants. Take every opportunity to get in touch with your heart’s desire. Discoveries can be profound. Some of you could come into financial support or backing for establishing yourself in a career or home. The New Moon on the 12th can bring a nice charge of motivation for creative and entertaining pursuits or a new start in a romance. The second half of the month is certainly better for mental clarity. You now have the motivation to launch new projects. The Full Moon on the 27th brings a sudden need to tend to spiritual and restful needs. Treat yourself to some down time now.
The month ahead is powerful for motivation and energy levels, dear Cancer, particularly on mental levels, and is also strong for strengthening your resolve and self-confidence. When it comes to learning, connecting, and communicating, your taste for the new and untried is powerful, and your initiative is through the roof, particularly after the 9th and building as the month advances. A partner is in your corner, and there can be a motivating, supportive meeting of minds. You might be the go-to person for information and know-how. Some of you could meet someone special through the phone, online, at school, or possibly in your own neighborhood with Pluto in your relationship sector in favorable aspect to Jupiter, Mars, and Venus in your communications sector. There could be new or improved connections and friendships. New information coming in or a new perspective from someone close to you could transform your own perspective or motivate you to pursue a dream project. Studies and mental interests are rewarding. How you view your relationships and commitments in general can be changing, and more clarity is likely now. Grab any opportunities that emerge to improve your communication skills and mindset. Some of you could be doing a lot of work at home or even on the home. A better atmosphere for learning or working at home can happen now. There can be lovely exposure to different ideas, opportunities, and possibilities. You’ll need to be fairly active and enterprising in your communications in order to benefit the most from the positive energies with you this month and into November; otherwise, you could feel rather restless and impatient, which can lead to mistakes. For some of you, transportation opportunities can open up, making it easier to get around. The Full Moon on the 27th brings a cosmic push to reach out to friends and groups. Networking efforts can be rewarding. The last week of the month stimulates a desire to play, enjoy, share your feelings and affections, and create.
The month ahead is strong for motivation, initiative, communications, and business, dear Leo, and can be very prosperous. Focus on building, connecting, and producing. There is a lovely exchange going on between your sectors of finance and resources and of communications from the 8th forward, and with Mercury turning direct in your communications sector on the 9th, strong energy for moving projects forward, gaining momentum as the month advances. It’s a good time for both goal-setting and pursuing. You are bolder than usual when it comes to business and earnings, and especially motivated to produce and prove your worth. There could be job offers or you could be making your own job opportunities now, and possibly significant gifts or bonuses. Financial breakthroughs are possible. Your attitude towards your practical affairs and business is proactive, confident, fresh, and positive. Opportunities to attract improved conditions in work, services you render, financial picture, and health are emerging, and this trend is only set to continue for many months ahead. Successful new ventures and launches are more possible now. There is also excellent energy for healing the body and improving health, particularly through grounding activities. There could be new purchases of communications or transportation equipment that improves your daily life. You can also enjoy learning new things this month, and studies are favored. The New Moon on the 12th is good for starting fresh and taking on new interests or studies, and also for promotion, marketing, and sales. The Full Moon on the 27th calls your attention to your career, public standing, reputation, and responsibilities. Recognition for your efforts can arise now.
Your energy levels run high this month, dear Virgo, and your pioneering instincts are strong. Venus returns to your sign (it entered Virgo briefly in July before turning retrograde) just when Mercury turns direct on the 8-9. This is good news for personal appeal and attracting what you want into your life. Still, with Mars in Virgo all month, you are making things happen! This is a fabulous period for charm and attractiveness, and this trend continues into November as well. This is a time for finding your creative voice, furthering a creative project or beginning a new venture, and possibly elevating a romantic relationship, although commitment may not be a goal at the moment. You can be feeling especially empowered, putting negativity behind you, and pursuing your goals. The ways you greet the world and carry yourself are transforming in positive ways. Children may be thriving as previous obstacles are overcome. This is a strong time for picking up or renewing a satisfying hobby. Money matters and business projects are likely to move forward after the 9th, with new beginnings after the 12th possible. This is one of the better times of the year for financial prosperity. You can feel as if you’re winding up as energetic Mars and expansive Jupiter move towards alignment in your sign, exact on the 17th. Those who matter most tend to believe in you fully right now. You have the drive to make your vision a reality, and your ideas are no less than huge. Timing is excellent and your willingness to learn from others gains you even more respect. As October progresses, you can feel more and more decisive and sure of yourself. The Full Moon on the 27th can be a time for making an announcement, publishing, or promotion.
While you’re certain to be getting attention this month, with the Sun in your sign until the 23rd and Mercury in your sign all of October, dear Libra, there is some sense of holding back, and this makes it a more relaxed time than it typically is at this time of year. Mercury is still retrograde until the 9th, and you’re looking back rather than forward, after which you have the chance to act on recent revelations and changes of mind. At the same time, Venus enters your soul sector where Mars is already traveling, and will continue to stay throughout the month. This points to a possible need for a sabbatical of sorts when it comes to major decisions in general, as well as relationships. While you may not be blossoming in an obvious sense quite yet, this is an excellent month for preparing yourself for busier times to come. Personal appeal is strong now, and creative pursuits can thrive, particularly if you’re doing something behind the scenes or if you’re on the last stretch of a special project. Your perceptions heighten this month. You’re learning important things about your inner world, deepest needs, and family or loved ones. Money matters are set to improve considerably. If a relationship is distracting you from your responsibilities and schedules, try to nip that in the bud, as this is an important time for developing your style of communication and for honing your skills. The 10-13 is powerful for new beginnings with a New Moon in your sign putting personal power in your hands, and occurring around the time of a healing Jupiter-Pluto connection. Even so, you may still be better off saving the really big things for later, when Venus and Mars cross the horizon in your solar chart by mid-November. There is still much going on under the hood in October, and for the most part, the biggest changes are going on inside.
While much of October your privacy sector is emphasized and you require more time to yourself, dear Scorpio, there are important influences in your social sector that can’t be ignored. From the 8th, you have creative, attracting Venus and assertive, energetic Mars moving in this part of your chart. Jupiter’s already here and receives a beautiful aspect from your ruler, Pluto, in your communications sector. It’s a powerful time for your social life, networking, and communicating. Some of you could be building a following for your ideas or your work. This month and the next, be sure to make connections and share your ideas. Your ambition is stimulated, and you are enjoying experimenting and entertaining new ideas. You may be feeling especially confident about what you have to offer others and the community, and in your own goals and dreams. You may be taking the lead in a group or people may be looking to you for guidance. New people coming into your life could inspire you to make important changes and improvements. Sudden or unexpected changes, disruptions, and meetings can actually lead to positive new directions. Love requires more emotional space, acceptance, and tolerance. Some of you could be finding love through group associations, networking, and friends. The Sun moves into your sign on the 23rd, bringing more attention to your personality and personal concerns. A Full Moon on the 27th brings relationship needs to the forefront and buried feelings to the surface. October brings far greater clarity to your personal plans, friendships, and love relationships.
While there is continuing focus on your social life this month, dear Sagittarius, career, responsibilities, and life plan goals are in strong focus, although they do have a social element to them. Very creative dynamic energy is with you, particularly after the 9th, for manifesting your goals or for furthering your career goals. Money matters are likely improving the more energy you put in the work you do, as you’re enjoying it more than usual. This trend will be with you for many months going forward, but right now, motivation is powerful. Your ruler, Jupiter, is in excellent shape this month, connecting beautifully with Venus, goddess of love, energetic and courageous Mars, powerful and resourceful Pluto, and inventive Uranus. This is a time for really shining and getting noticed for your performance. You may have the chance to use your most natural talents and skills in practical ways. There is courage for trying new things and even for starting something from scratch through redesign or renovation. Seek out connections with people who can further your career or personal interests. Through others’ faith in you, or wisdom, you are encouraged to reach your potential. Projects or even finances might be turned around. The pace may be hectic, but you’re generally enjoying it. If there have been problems with friends, you have the chance to make serious improvements, first with Mercury’s direct motion from the 9th, and then with the power of the New Moon on the 12th, which can help to wipe the slate clean with someone you care about, if necessary. Love relationships can certainly improve this month, particularly after the 9th.
Life is really picking up pace for you this month, dear Capricorn, in a most enjoyable way. You seem to be balancing work and play well right now, with opportunities emerging on both personal and professional levels. There is good energy for applying your knowledge and skillset in practical ways and to good feedback, particularly from the 9th forward. For some of you, your ideas are reaching a larger audience and gaining recognition, or publishing, learning, and teaching are in strong focus. Combining business and travel can be rewarding for some. You might be enjoying an exciting new project or a revival of one already in progress. Personal magnetism is strong and is only set to increase. You’ll find that moving outside of your normal bounds and routines improves your opportunities. There can be great hunger for new experiences and knowledge that feed your mind and spirit. Many of you could be feeling that you bounce back much more easily from minor stresses and problems. Teaching or guiding can be in strong or stronger focus in the work you do. Opportunities for travel, friendship, learning, and love can emerge. Jupiter connects with Pluto in your sign, and this can stimulate a real sense of meaning and purpose. There may be some issues with instability on the home front to deal with three weeks in, but you’re in a good position to manage problem areas. Mercury’s forward motion on the 9th and the New Moon on the 12th both can help to boost career efforts and reputation. There can be a sense that you can start anew. The Full Moon on the 27th is strong for love relationships, romance, and creative pursuits. The lines of communication open.
This month brings improvement to learning pursuits, transportation, and general spirit or attitude towards life, dear Aquarius. For people in love relationships or looking for love, this month and the next are strong for getting closer. Connections can deepen. While you’re seeking out a little more adventure from your life this month, your private world holds a lot of appeal. In fact, there can be times when you’re utterly absorbed in quiet activities, research, and projects. The desire for more intimacy in a relationship, or in your relationships in general, is increasing, and opportunities are likely to present themselves. Support from others tends to be more and more available to you, if you are seeking it. Self-improvement efforts can be very successful this month, and in many respects, in the coming year. Some of you could enjoy support or backing for travel or educational plans. You are coming into a very good career period, and while the rewards may be more explicit later, you’re likely to feel more competent, motivated, and a little freer when it comes to doing things your way. The last half of the month tends to play more heavily in your favor, and this can be in the areas of finances, love, and friendship. Special dates for advances in financial and intimate arenas include the 15, 17,22-23, and 25. Your ruler, Uranus, connects beautifully with Jupiter by a parallel aspect, boosting motivation levels and a sense of joy and purpose. This perfects in the last week of October, when a Full Moon occurs in your home and family sector. You can feel that loved ones really have your back, and confidence increases as a result.
There is a strong focus on the agendas of others in your life this month, dear Pisces, on your close relationships, and on your relationship with yourself and self-understanding. From the 8-9, there is a nice exchange going on between your partnership and intimacy houses, not to mention the direct motion of Mercury, your partnership ruler. This can improve relationships many times over, and especially partnerships or other one-on-one connections, such as in counseling set-ups. Negotiations are well-favored. You could be meeting with especially exciting or enticing people now, and for those in a partnership, a relationship is animated, perhaps a little demanding at times, but overall contributing to a nice growth and learning process. There might also be some good publicity for you in October. Mutually beneficial connections can be made, and networking can be rewarding. Some of you could meet a partner through your work or group associations. Relationships in general can advance to a new level. Be open to new ideas and stimulation, but experiment wisely and creatively. Be sure to get a word in edgewise, even if it’s an important time to consider the input of others. A partner or special friend can inspire or motivate you to pursue a dream or to work up to your potential. The New Moon on the 12th along with Mercury’s direct motion can bring forward motion to a financial matter for some, and the Full Moon on the 27th is strong for learning and communications projects.
We have plenty of time to process recent experiences and reconsider future plans because we are moving through a cosmic quiet zone today. Although the restless Gemini Moon keeps our minds running on overdrive, we might not be able to turn our thoughts into action. In fact, we may have one-too-many ideas about what we want to accomplish. Nevertheless, retrograde Mercury has us looking back more than gazing ahead until it turns direct next week.
Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
You’re cosmically disposed to be a pioneer, bravely exploring unknown territories and eagerly pursuing the rush of doing things for the first time. Today’s fidgety Gemini Moon prompts you to pile on even more activities to your already hectic schedule just for the thrill of it. Although you may thrive on blasting off in several different directions at once, narrowing your focus and concentrating on one challenge at a time now enables you to be even more productive in the future.
Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
A realistic assessment of what you need versus what you want produces some pretty interesting results today. You understand that life is less complicated when you get by with just the basics, but you’re unwilling to make the adjustments necessary to change your lifestyle. Thankfully, no immediate action is required now; starting with a fresh perspective is enough to make you feel more secure all the way around. Counting your blessings allows you to see how rich you truly are.
Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
Making an important decision can be challenging today because the dualistic Gemini Moon has you seeing double. Even after you make your choice, a single goal morphs into two very distinct possibilities — just like the mythical Hydra who regrew two more heads each time one was cut off. Fortunately, there’s no need to answer every question posed to you now; some dilemmas are better left unresolved. Keep your options open until Mercury turns direct and your clarity returns.
Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
You probably sound more certain today than you actually feel. Although you may be inwardly lost in self-doubt, your coworkers won’t realize that anything is wrong. Ironically, you’re likely to receive support from others and be more successful professionally if you share your current concerns now, rather than trying to hide your insecurities. Your best policy is to keep the communication channels wide open and hope for the best.
Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
Although you Lions often prefer playing in a pack, you might want to venture off on your own today. The truth is you need to maintain your autonomy or you will feel trapped by the very same people you want in your life. Don’t sacrifice your individuality just to be accepted and loved. You will likely need more freedom, rather than less, over the days ahead. Be considerate and let others know your plans, but don’t give anyone a chance to steal your thunder. Fortune favors the bold.
Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
Maintaining your sense of purpose is a struggle today, even if you have a very clear sense of what you need to do. Nevertheless, circumstances will likely pull you in several directions at once while you prefer to drill down on the details with a singular focus. Simultaneously, responsibilities demand that you spread yourself thinner to cover the workload. You don’t do anyone any favors promising more than is humanly possible. Staying within your lane now is best for everyone involved.
Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
You may secretly worry that your expectations for the future will be impossible to meet. However, adopting a common sense approach actually enables you to live out your dreams. But this isn’t an overnight project; your long-range planning might take months, or even years, to manifest. If you find yourself growing anxious or restless now, remember the old adage, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Relax; you have more time than you think to create your perfect life.
Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
Sometimes you dive into an emotional situation with such abandon that you lose all sense of perspective. However, you’re capable of being fully engaged without being hooked by someone else’s melodrama today. Your rational approach rewards you with a cool head now, so others may lean on you even more in their times of need. It’s an honor to share your wisdom if you don’t attempt to control anyone else’s life in the process. Your insight is a gift as long as your heart is in the right place.
Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
You are a pro at gazing far off into the distance, but sometimes miss seeing what’s right under your nose. A close friend or partner may overwhelm you with too much information about something that’s occurring now. Although people might go to great lengths to change your opinion, you can’t help but think that the current events are merely a distraction from your more evolved perspective. Don’t be so quick to judge; instead, acknowledge that you don’t have all the answers and remain open to the pearls of wisdom others can offer you.
Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
Spending the day talking around the water cooler seems like more fun than actually performing your job today, but idle chatter only leads to major trouble. Thankfully, the loquacious Gemini Moon’s visit to your 6th House of Daily Routine is stabilized by the willful Sun, reminding you of your long list of obligations. Nevertheless, it’s challenging to settle down if you are busy socializing when you should be focusing on your work. Remember, actions speak louder than words.
Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
You are buzzing with so many creative ideas today that your innovative thinking could lead you in endless circles. You must slow down and take the time to turn your brilliant thoughts into bold action. However, initiating a new project doesn’t ensure success now; you need to follow through on every detail to finish whatever you start. Ultimately, your ambitious intentions are valuable only if you relentlessly keep your eyes on the prize. No one can stop you from achieving your potential except yourself.
Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
There is so much going on around you now that you might attempt to lose yourself in a daydream for a while. Unfortunately, you are involved in too many activities for you to get very far with your escape. In fact, you may be drawn from one project to another, without having enough time to settle into any of them. Instead of working yourself up into a state of high anxiety, remember that this level of noise won’t last. In the meantime, set your fantasies aside until you put your priorities in order.
You thrive on companionship, especially the one-on-one kind. For the most part, you are quite comfortable in a supporting role, and possess an understated charm. Although tactful and caring, you also enjoy displaying your intellect, and there are times when you might try to score intellectual points, and regret it if you’ve hurt someone else’s feelings in the process! The thing is, you accept nothing at face value, and that combined with your perceptiveness endows you with a very interesting and intelligent perspective that others respect. You are spiritually inclined, well-respected, and popular. Famous people born today: Mahatma Gandhi, Groucho Marx, Graham Greene, Johnny Cochrane, Kelly Ripa, Sting, Tiffany.
The pace tends to be busy today, dear Aries, largely because your curiosity is big and attention span a little short. There can be some conflicts between the desire for freedom and the need to tend to work and routines. It may be a little difficult to discipline yourself now, particularly if your heart’s not into what you’re doing at the moment. Fortunately, the month ahead brings building motivation levels and a stronger sense of purpose or mission. Today, take in, connect, and learn.
There could be commitments to help people out today that get in the way of your own plans, needs, or wants, dear Taurus. Your emotional focus is more practical than anything today, and you could feel a stronger need to produce or to be productive, but distractions are likely. If you can manage it, you may be better off working by and for yourself just for now. Fine-tune plans right now, and get the details right before moving things along.
It can be a little difficult balancing home and friends today, dear Gemini, or you could find yourself in the position to explain that an outside commitment prevents you from spending time with someone in your life. Focus on physical work, if possible, that gets you ahead, because energy channeled constructively can prevent nervous tension or restlessness. The Moon in your sign brings buried emotions to the forefront, and you can find easy expression in creative pursuits today. You might discover that you’re in demand today.
You might find that you’re in demand today, dear Cancer, or possibly called upon to do your duties or perform your responsibilities when your mind is elsewhere. Obligations can conflict with what you’d rather be doing, and certainly, you’re in need of some rest and emotional renewal. Work can be overwhelming today, but you’re in demand and this can be considered a good thing! Revisions made now to projects or your work can be especially beneficial in the future. You’re inclined to keep to yourself or require some break from the hustle and bustle with the Moon in the sign behind yours all day.
There could be some seesawing between impatience and caution today, dear Leo. Part of you wants to explore your horizons and your options, and another part would prefer to focus on what you’ve already been building. Don’t let this predicament keep you in a state of “not doing”. If you’re on the fence, put your efforts into something you absolutely know needs doing, and then return to your decision a little more refreshed and less burdened. The Moon is in your solar eleventh house all day so that connecting with others in some way can help fill you emotionally.
You may be feeling a little pressured to make a decision or to make changes today, dear Virgo, but it may be best to slow down or wait until you are more “in the know” and feeling clearer. Try to control impulses to act hastily. Others could be pushing your buttons, or there could be a lack of appreciation for all that you do, and this can be frustrating. However, you’re certainly coming into your own. It’s probably better to do things at your own pace or independently rather than waiting on others for their input. The Moon is in your solar tenth house all day, at the top of your solar chart, and you could feel that you’re in the spotlight – people seem to be taking note of what you are doing, or haven’t done! This can be a good time to follow the rules and fill your responsibilities to the best of your ability.
Try not to spend too much time on inner conflicts today, dear Libra, as this can lead to unnecessary stress, anguish, and a state of limbo that gets you nowhere. It’s best to turn your attention to what needs doing and then coming back to your predicament or decision after you’ve had time to process things. It can be rather futile to do battle with others or the outside world when you are conflicted on the inside. A partner may remind you of a commitment or obligation that you’d prefer to forget, or they may be challenging your intentions. However, the Moon’s presence in your sector of adventure and higher thinking can pull you out of a funk. It can be fairly easy to work off steam by channeling emotions and energy into a creative pursuit.
You could be feeling a little divided in both attention and time today, dear Scorpio, particularly between work or the responsibilities of your daily affairs and your personal or social life. Your mind can be elsewhere as you fill your duties, but you can’t entirely enjoy yourself until they are filled! It can be difficult to get others to cooperate with you just for now, especially if you are having a hard time sorting out your own desires and needs. However, this is a good time for discoveries about feelings and emotions. In fact, you may have a eureka of sorts about a past matter that is quite satisfying.
You could be having a hard time concentrating and focusing today, dear Sagittarius, and may not know where to direct your time, energy, and attention. An obligation to someone in your life might be interfering with the need to push a business or career project forward. Try to slow down and avoid the unnecessary stress of indecision. Avoid trying to fix situations or people when it’s probably best to let thing play out naturally or the let things be. Today is best used for tending to details and fixing problems rather than pushing forward without a defined goal. With the Moon in your partnership zone, you may want to lean on someone you trust.
You could have some problems coming together with others smoothly today, dear Capricorn, as relations may feel a little off at times, as if you’re getting in the way of each other. This is simply a timing issue – something that happens now and again and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. However, it’s best to avoid pushing forward with your ideas or plans on a day when timing is a little off. Focusing on practical matters and details can be better than doing big-picture thinking, decision-making, and goal-setting. The Moon in your solar sixth house all day reinforces this, as it’s a good time for ironing out problem or weak areas in your life.
Although your life sometimes feels like a roller coaster ride these days, dear Aquarius, there could be a part of you that enjoys the challenge or intuitively understands that some change is necessary in order to pull you out of a rut. Today, you may be confronting the part of you that is looking to stir things up, and you might consider ways to let this work for you rather than against you! The Moon spends the day in your sector of play and creativity, and this can certainly elevate your spirits, particularly as the Moon connects with the Sun in your sector of higher thinking and spirit.
You could be dealing with crossed wires that leaves you lacking the necessary information or confidence to make an important decision today, dear Pisces. It may be better to wait things out. October is actually quite powerful for decision making and confidence generally speaking after the 9th. Instead of getting worked up unnecessarily over things you can’t currently change, attempt to focus on productive, positive efforts and activities. Part of you is attracted to the excitement of a challenge, and another part is drawn to things and situations that keep you feeling balanced and steady. Try not to let this inner tug of war keep you in a state of limbo or stress you out.
This weekend presents an opportunity to get in touch with your feelings and your thoughts. Plus, since the Moon will be in both an Air sign and a Water sign, there will be romantic potential for everyone! Until Saturday night, the Moon will be in clever Gemini.
