Conflicting cosmic messages of expansion and contraction keep us on our toes today. The Moon’s shift into farsighted Sagittarius at 3:00 am EST widens our perspective, blessing us with a philosophical outlook on life. But the Moon slams into confining Saturn at 7:11 am, narrowing our view and putting a restrictive filter on our feelings. Luna’s subsequent square to Mars re-energizes suppressed emotions. A positive attitude goes a long way now.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You may be thinking about heading to your dream destination with the Moon moving through your 9th House of Faraway Places. But this isn’t just about a vacation. You are on a mission as you search for your special place on Earth. Forget about immediate gratification; this journey is important enough that you shouldn’t take no for an answer now, even if you can’t follow through on your explorations yet. Setting your sights on the horizon is a good place to start, but it will take hard work and determination if you want to make your dream come true.

A dilemma could surface today around your need for simplicity, even within a complex situation. You are driven to find the most practical solutions to your problems, but it’s not as easy as you wish. You may inadvertently contradict your intentions by saying more than necessary. Stirring up someone’s wrath isn’t the best path to a peaceful day. Luckily, a bit of conscious self-restraint might have a longer-lasting positive impact than you expect.

Although you often enjoy bantering with people who are as clever as you, today you may actually try to avoid others because you’re not interested in debating your opinion on every subject. Unfortunately, seeking solitude isn’t the best way to deal with smart people who might contradict your stated position. Be open to learning something you don’t already know. It’s a sign of real intelligence when you can admit you are wrong and someone else is right.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You are typically cautious in how you present yourself, but today you could consider drastic action in your haste for self-improvement. Nevertheless, it’s better to test an idea by discussing it first, instead of just jumping in and making changes you can’t undo. Taking the time to think your plan all the way through ensures that your actions will have the greatest positive effect on your future. Cultivating your creativity is an admirable pursuit as long as you don’t try to paint your masterpiece in just one day.

Romantic inclinations can make your life more interesting today, but you may have mixed emotions as to whether or not to act on your feelings. The Moon is skipping through your 5th House of Love and her alignment with cold Saturn and hot Mars is simultaneously discouraging and encouraging. Impulsive behavior won’t likely create a happy ending to your fairy tale, but a fortunate outcome is possible if you stop and express both sides of your dilemma. Ultimately, pleasure won’t arrive on its own; it’s up to you to make the first move and get the ball rolling.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You may be able to tell that an emotional power struggle is brewing beneath the surface today, even if others are acting as if everything is copacetic. However, someone may be less than friendly, although you haven’t a clue why. Be patient and don’t ask too many questions; it could take a few days for the real issues to manifest. In the meantime, do your best to avoid open conflict since happiness can only be attained through awareness, compassion and growth
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re quite capable of turning on the charm, even in the most difficult situations. But your friends might notice an emotional chill from you now that the Moon is hooking up with somber Saturn in your 3rd House of Communication. Fortunately, you can still make your point as long as you don’t try to cover up your true intentions with social niceties. You can act kindly without laying on false sweetness; a no-nonsense approach brings the best results today.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your relationship to your material possessions is undergoing a dramatic shift as you reconsider what you want these days. You might be willing or even eager to let go of once-prized belongings that have turned into unneeded baggage. Your values are transforming and it’s time to lighten your load emotionally and physically so you’re better able to travel the road ahead, unencumbered by the weight of your past.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You do not want to waste precious energy on a communication mix-up today. Nor do you want to be misled by anyone because your feelings are strong and your patience is short. You just don’t have time for playing games now; you expect everyone to get right to the point. Your emotions may be raw, so give yourself time to process inwardly before revealing any insecurities to those who have not already earned your trust. Following your intuition, rather than other people’s expectations, leaves little chance for regret.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
A lighthearted daydream can morph into an obsessive fantasy if you let your guard down. Oddly enough, the more you try to set your thoughts aside, the more they linger and gain strength. Suppression doesn’t work now, so just let your imagination play through even if it raises uncomfortable fears or desires. Mental meanderings are more troublesome and persistent if you bury them. Channel your inner artist by expressing your visions in a creative manner.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You may be overly demonstrative about a social or political issue with the Moon camped out in your 11th House of Groups. However, you are less interested in going along for a ride than you are in focusing your efforts on making a difference. With karmic Saturn so close to the Moon, your contribution will most likely be appreciated by others. But act now because of your own values and not because someone wants you to get involved with their pet cause. Things will fall into place if your inner world is in alignment with the circumstances around you.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You might think you’re being straightforward today, but your actions don’t necessarily support your intentions. At first, your behavior could be awkward as you hold your feelings in. But then, when you realize you’re not being authentic, you can overcompensate by revealing too much. Ultimately, you must find a healthy outlet for your conscious expression that, like Goldilocks, is not too hot and not too cold, but just right.
