Our need to be seen and appreciated today is in direct conflict with a previous strategy based upon invisibility. Today’s dramatic Leo Moon encourages us to take center stage and share our emotions. We may even embellish them for maximum effect. However, the Moon’s stressful squares to the Sun, Saturn and Venus — all in intense Scorpio — indicate we might be required to defend our feelings against someone who doesn’t agree with our chosen course.

You may actually be enjoying the intensity of your personal relationships because superficial interactions don’t seem to fully satisfy you now. You’re willing to tenaciously cling to the status quo as you explore the power of deeper feelings, rather than running off to explore a new distraction. But don’t try to bury any inconvenient emotions that unexpectedly surface. Acknowledging your changing whims doesn’t mean you need to act on them. Being honest isn’t always easy yet it’s the most reliable way to build a strong foundation and a meaningful connection.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You might assume that it’s unnecessary to surround yourself with lots of facts and figures since your friends will probably ride to the rescue at the last moment with the necessary details. Nevertheless, you have an important lesson to learn about relationships now, and expecting others to bail you out can interfere with the process. Do your own analysis and plot out a viable strategy so you don’t waste your precious time discussing the logistics that you could handle on your own.

You’re eagerly anticipating some creative playtime today because you want to make use of your current ingenuity. But instead of floating off into the clouds of illusion, it’s more useful to roll up your sleeves and get down to business. However, the longer you procrastinate, the tougher it is to finish your tasks. Luckily, you can combine your desire for fun with meeting the demands of work by simply changing your attitude. Don’t postpone feeling the joy; instead, whistle while you work.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Several different paths lead to the possibility of pleasure, but it’s ultimately up to you to choose your direction. But first you must demonstrate that you can set your fears aside and take responsibility for your happiness. Be in the moment if you want to squeeze the most out of it. Your current willingness to take a chance now might be necessary to fulfill your dreams.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
There is a great contrast between what you are doing today and how you feel about it. Logically, you know exactly what you want, yet you’re still reacting from your gut. Ultimately you may be happier if your heart wins out over your logical rationalizations. Practice the art of compassion by meeting others halfway, even if you think you shouldn’t compromise at all.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You may struggle to be upfront about your own desires, yet you still expect everyone else to be straightforward and share their needs with you. Unfortunately, this double standard could land you in trouble, especially if you aren’t willing to let down your guard. Save your hard bargaining and poker face for some other time; you are better off today simply placing your cards face up on the table and going from there. Trust is a two-way street.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Although you could be dreaming about your long-term goals, the gathering of planets in your 2nd House of Personal Values shifts your focus back to the present moment. At first, it might seem as if you can’t maintain your integrity while working to fulfill your destiny. However, you can stay true to your core beliefs by modifying your course rather than your destination. It’s less about where you are going than about how you get there. Taking the high road demonstrates your strength of character.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You might believe that others don’t appreciate your efforts today, and anything they do or say could provoke a nasty conflict — even if there’s nothing to fight about at all. Unfortunately, the Moon’s square to the Sun in your 1st House of Self fuels difficult dynamics in your personal life. Stepping back and taking several deep breaths calms your nerves in the moment, but the passage of time helps even more. Thankfully, you can boost your confidence by channeling your excess energy into productive tasks. No one will argue with your success.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Manifesting your dreams proves to be difficult today because obsessing on making something happen can actually have the opposite effect and delay the outcome. The boisterous Leo Moon encourages you to keep others informed of your plans, but her square to the Sun in your 12th House of Privacy suggests that it’s smarter to downplay your next move. Keep your final destination in sight, but remember that making many adjustments along the way can help you reach your goals faster than you expect.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You’re not interested in revealing too much of your plan yet, but your motives are probably more transparent than you think. However, you can inadvertently withhold more information than is wise since it’s to your advantage if others know which direction you are heading. Although you might lose a little momentum by disclosing too much too fast, you could miss a very important opportunity for personal growth if you don’t take a chance and share your heart’s desire.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You might be tempted to put all your hopes into one special relationship, believing that someone else will save you from your own shortcomings. Ironically, you may be hesitant to reveal your needs because you know in your heart that your expectations are unrealistic. Work within the limitations of the current situation instead of setting yourself up for disappointment later on. Fortunately, once you accept the truth you will recognize which steps to take without needing validation from anyone else.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You may be acutely aware of how old habits might prevent you from reaching your ambitious goals. The Leo Moon’s presence in your 6th House of Self-Improvement works against your long-term plans by distracting you with too many details. Paradoxically, shifting your focus to the big picture might be more efficient. Working with relevant information is critical, but being buried in endless minutiae won’t help your cause. Looking at the forest instead of the trees inspires you to change your ways.
