Our heightened expectations may lead to disappointment today unless we consciously bring our hopes back down to earth. Today’s adaptable Gemini Moon connects with optimistic Jupiter, highlighting the positive potential of a situation rather than a realistic assessment. The Moon’s influence is strong since there are no significant planetary aspects to distract us. But change comes slowly since several planets are still visiting steady Taurus.

You have a bounce to your step and a mischievous twinkle in your eye today because you believe that you can put one over on reality. Unfortunately, you may be so clever now that you fool everyone, including yourself. Be careful … everything might appear to be light and easy but there are still potent forces at work just beyond the limits of what you’re able to sense. Nevertheless, your goals are attainable if you’re willing to dig beneath the surface.

Your current mental agility has you fox-trotting around facts and tap-dancing to tall tales today. Unfortunately, you could be so hypnotized by your own smooth style that you don’t even notice when the music stops. You might be a lot more productive now if you concentrate on the tasks at hand rather than demonstrating how skillfully you can maneuver around the truth. Don’t forget that actions speak louder than words.

Your thoughts are racing a mile a minute and there’s no simple way to slow them down. Normally, you might consider this adrenaline rush to be exhilarating, but now it’s more of an irritation than anything else. It’s one thing to think quickly, but it’s unfortunate if your current mental process is leading you around in circles. Nevertheless, don’t resist the repetition, for it could bring an unexpected breakthrough when you least expect it.

You are preoccupied with your fantasies today, but thankfully, no one needs to know what’s going on within your brain. You can easily keep up normal appearances now, enabling you to come and go as you please. Just don’t get so overconfident that you stop paying attention to your immediate surroundings or you could miss out on something in the real world which is even more delicious than your colorful daydreams.

You want to relax with a small group of friends or family, but you still have to fulfill your responsibilities in the real world. Luckily, you may not have to choose one over the other now if you do a little planning in advance. Instead of frittering away your day, make a list of things to do and then focus on each item until it’s done. If you concentrate your efforts, you’ll be surprised at how much time you have left over to enjoy the camaraderie you seek.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
People may look to you for acknowledgment today, but you don’t believe that you should have to put your stamp of approval on everything that happens. Luckily, you have enough common sense to remain uninvolved if a situation doesn’t concern you directly. However, this detachment could annoy a friend or family member because your attitude might be misinterpreted as displeasure. Take whatever time you need to make sure that everyone knows exactly how you feel. Negative feelings can be minimized by engaging in clear communication right from the start.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You may feel distant from the real nitty-gritty of today’s events, but it isn’t because you have consciously withdrawn. In fact, your exuberance could be running at a fever pitch now, yet your words sound so philosophical that others might not understand what you’re saying. Visualizing your ideal world can be useful, but it doesn’t change anything unless you bring your ideas back down to Earth. Think globally, act locally, and speak practically.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your special gift today is being able to discuss a challenging personal experience in a manner that doesn’t make others feel awkward. You can feel the intensity while describing it in a straightforward style that carries no blame. Thankfully, your openness acts as a catalyst now, triggering a totally unexpected conversation. Even if you have a specific agenda, be open and talk about it with those you trust. When the topic shifts, simply adapt to the new landscape with a smile.

A close friend might talk your ear off today but you can’t seem to find a graceful way to stop them. You are known to speak your mind without realizing that your direct approach may offend those with thinner skin than yours. But now you would be wise to bite your tongue and listen to what’s being said. Surprisingly, your practice of discretion could even lead to learning something important about yourself. Keep in mind that your unselfish support has a deeper impact than you will ever know.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You might secretly freak out for a moment when you realize you have a wild tiger by the tail today. However, your calm demeanor and steady persistence will soon have even the most vicious cat purring. Unfortunately, there’s no step-by-step diagram to show you how to manage the situation successfully. Luckily, your survival skills won’t let you down if you just do what comes naturally. Follow your primal instincts and you’ll have things under control faster than anyone expects.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You believe that you are due a real day off as a reward for your recent hard work. You’re ready to schedule a bit of rest and relaxation today, but unexpected complications may get in the way. Don’t make it worse by falling prey to the trap of complaining, since your negativity only annoys everyone around you. Instead, be responsible and handle whatever pops up with a can-do attitude and a smile. Laughter is contagious so utilizing your sense of humor now is a must.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Rather than running around in circles trying to accomplish something, retreat behind the walls of your home today. Pick up a book that you recently set aside and sink into it. Listen to some special music that inspires you to meditate and dream. Talk on the phone, chat online with a friend or put your feet up and escape into TV-land. It doesn’t really matter which distractions you choose. However, don’t let others make you feel guilty for taking some personal time … you deserve it just as much as anyone else.
