We are thinking about those who may be less fortunate than we are as today’s hypersensitive Mercury-Neptune trine opens our minds to the plights of others. However, our compassion might be overshadowed by a combative Sun-Mars square that can quickly lead to conflict. But the Moon’s shift into steady Taurus at 4:42 am EDT steers anger along more stabilizing channels of expression. Meanwhile, an annoying Venus-Saturn alignment delays gratification.

You feel as if you’re being pushed to defend your position today as your key planet Mars squares off with the willful Sun. Simultaneously, you are being cosmically coaxed to seek softer styles of expression. You might attempt to balance these opposite responses now, but without conscious intervention warrior Mars could win out. It’s more important than ever to temper your sense of urgency with a kinder and gentler approach. Make love not war.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You may choose to disobey the rules today, but you really don’t have to openly rebel to prove your point. Showing disrespect only adds more complications that you really don’t need. Instead, lean on the harmonious aspects created by the Moon’s presence in your sensible sign to find a more peaceful resolution to your current anger. Thinking outside of the box is essential now in order to put your brilliant plan into practice.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
It’s nearly impossible to think straight today and you’re wise to postpone a significant decision if you can. But if you can’t delay making your choice, at least don’t try to fool yourself by believing that you’re being objective. You may have already formed your opinion and new information won’t likely change your position. However, keep in mind that impulsive reactions can be magnets for trouble. Whatever you decide, take additional time to consider all the options before giving your final answer.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
It’s out of character to wear your feelings on your sleeve but you may be unhappy about something at work, prompting you to discuss the matter with anyone who will listen. Proceed with caution, for your strong opinions might provoke others to react aggressively, beginning a cycle of conflict escalation. Defending your convictions is healthy, but it’s really not necessary to turn a minor disagreement into a major battle. Taking the high road makes you a hero for the day.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
It’s all too easy for your annoyance to boil over into anger if you don’t stay one step ahead of your emotions today. You might believe that expressing dissatisfaction is the most responsible thing to do but unfortunately, you could take your position too far. Don’t worry so much about self-disclosure. It’s more important for others to see that you can get the job done right than it is for them to know your personal feelings. Set your grievances aside; ultimately, the only thing that really matters now is your performance.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your self-reliance is admirable but you’re still not free to just go off on your own. Other people are depending on you and you are committed to meeting your obligations, even if you believe you might be happier being on the move now. Don’t let your frustration turn into anger or it may get the best of you. The choice is yours; you can blame someone else for the current situation or you can assume responsibility for your actions. Take control and start making improvements to create positive change in your life.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
A serious tone is settling over your life now, reminding you that patience will bring better results than an impulsive reaction. Your key planet Venus creates an anxious aspect to somber Saturn today, requiring you to demonstrate self-restraint when expressing your feelings. Staying aware of your changing moods enables you to maintain a healthy perspective. Losing your temper might feel satisfying in the moment, but doesn’t necessarily help your cause in the long run.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You could become so irritated with a friend or colleague today that you don’t know how to express what’s on your mind without losing your cool. You believe that your criticism is justified, but your intensity level may be too much for some people now that the Sun squares your key planet Mars. However, it isn’t necessary to bury your feelings. Engaging in physical activity can help you move through this stress with grace. Another option is to confide in a close friend who understands your passionate nature. Finding an appropriate outlet for your energy saves the day.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Pushing others too hard today could be an exercise in futility. Instead of acting aggressively and stubbornly trying to get people to do things your way, just work on your own for a while. Don’t bother drawing up complex plans and procedures; just jump in and figure it out on the fly. It’s great if your friends offer to help, but don’t rely on their assistance or you could end up waiting all day. Simply demonstrate your leadership skills by setting an example that everyone will want to follow.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may find yourself in an awkward predicament today if your current strategy lacks substance. You might have added lots of facts and figures to your plans to make them seem more concrete, but now you need to take an entirely new approach. Letting go of your frustration or any regrets about a missed opportunity is the first step to creating change. Re-evaluating your objectives and refining your tactics move you closer toward your goals. If you don’t succeed at first, try, try again.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You could find yourself in an uncomfortable position if others expect more from you than you can give now. You might have assumed that you would have more discretionary time available, but you don’t seem to be able to handle the chaos if circumstances fly out of control. Losing your temper won’t make any of your current problems disappear. Instead of lashing out at whoever is in your way, practice the art of patience by remembering that this, too, shall pass.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Layers of complexity might plague your personal relationships today, making it impossible to know which way to turn. In fact, it’s easier to forget about the emotional dynamics so you can focus solely on fulfilling your responsibilities. Although it seems as if you’re doing more than your share of the work, it’s best to grin and bear it, rather than rocking the boat. Your emotions are amplified now, so wait a couple of days before you make your next move. In the meantime, channel your angst into your work.
