Although our energy may be nearly impossible to contain early in the day, we do a better job of restraining our emotions later on. The dramatic Leo Moon encourages us to express our feelings without holding anything back. But the Moon’s shift into pragmatic Virgo at 5:57 pm EST narrows our focus as we consider the best way to complete our chores. Nevertheless, we can take a setback too seriously this evening when the Moon squares responsible Saturn.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Your attention is directed at getting ahead on the job now that the fun is winding down. Of course, it makes sense to organize your life and focus on your career as much as possible. But don’t become so intent on your goals that you miss out on an amazing experience that’s right in front of your nose. Take care of business today but don’t turn down an opportunity for personal enjoyment. Adding a bit of mischief into the mix inspires you to put even more effort into your work.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
If you are clear about your overall direction in life, the little things will fall into place today. Although it’s helpful to define your goals in great detail, it’s counterproductive now to actually compare your progress to your original expectations. Sometimes it’s more productive to focus on each task as you do it without worrying about how it fits into the bigger picture. As long as you know where you’re heading in the long run, cut yourself some slack and joyfully engage each moment as it comes.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Family matters can be very complicated and dealing with details at home may be a bit overwhelming today. It’s your natural inclination to sweep everything under the rug, but this avoidance tactic won’t solve anything. You will be much better off in the future if you get down to the real nitty-gritty as soon as you have the chance. Building trust requires honesty and perseverance, but it will be invaluable to you in the future.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Although you are often led around by your emotions, you may be able to step outside of your feelings today to see your world more objectively. Focusing on your communication skills can help you discuss even the most complex issues in depth. But don’t let a conversation wander all over the place; sticking to the subject at hand will make you more effective in finding answers to the larger questions of life.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Relationship dynamics at work are challenging if you have an agenda that’s not fully supported by others. Nevertheless, your current confidence feeds your sense of optimism, even if it flies in the face of actual circumstances. But you may notice a crack in your armor later today when the Moon leaves your 1st House of Personality to hang out in your 2nd House of Resources. Maintain your idealism while accepting the reality of the situation. Exercising good judgment can lower your emotional cost and raise your self-esteem.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Being emotionally vulnerable is more likely now that the sensitive Moon is back in your sign. You may feel slighted if you don’t receive the appreciation that you deserve for your hard work. You are usually more than willing to jump in and help others achieve their dreams. However, you must also give something back to yourself today in order to enhance the quality of your own life. There’s nothing wrong with exhibiting a bit of self-interest, especially if your health and vitality could benefit from your attention.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Someone may require your assistance today, but don’t wait to receive a specific request. If you are concerned about a friend, pick up the phone and give them a call. He or she may only need a kind ear and a shoulder to lean on, but remember that confidentiality is crucial if you want to establish trust. You won’t need to fix anything to be of value; your emotional support could have more of a positive impact than you think. Follow your intuition when it comes to helping those you love.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You might have to take severe criticism from someone today, yet remaining open to their advice ultimately works to your advantage. Nearly everyone could get on your nerves while the fussy Virgo Moon lingers in your 11th House of Community. Your own perceptions are quite accurate now, so you easily see how others can improve their efficiency, too. Be sure to present your opinions kindly, so that your message is heard with the proper intent. Respect is a two-way street if you want to engage in a constructive dialogue.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The greater your dreams, the more the minutiae will require your attention. Similarly, the higher you aim, the more precision needed. Remember, you are most effective today when you handle the little things, even if you are annoyed with trivial tasks. Don’t let frustration get the best of you; honor the bold Leo Moon’s visit to your 9th House of Big Ideas by reaching as high as you can. However, prepare for the Moon’s shift into laser-like Virgo by focusing on the fine points without resistance.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Although you excel at playing the role of an authority figure, sometimes it’s more advantageous to be humble in your approach. If you are willing to adopt a beginner’s mind, a teacher can be extraordinarily helpful to you now. Listen carefully and take detailed notes so that you can learn as much as possible. The information you receive today is worthy of your time and effort if you want to experience personal growth. True enlightenment comes from being a student of life.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Your compassion is required when dealing with a partner or close friend today. However, a thorough examination of your communication style can also reveal hidden patterns that you need to know about now. Although you might wish you could fast forward to a happy ending, working through the complex issues first makes any solution more enduring. Demonstrate your commitment to the relationship by showing up with an open mind and a loving heart.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You might believe your good intentions are solid enough to make a relationship work. Unfortunately, your idealism isn’t necessarily being played out by the current circumstances. Even if you aren’t ready, your friend or partner could want more of a commitment from you. Or, perhaps you have unresolved issues that you don’t want to talk about yet. Emotional detachment only works as a temporary fix; sooner or later you must come clean if you want to experience more love and happiness.
