We may be annoyed that the holidays are over, but heading back to work today is not a valid reason to be angry. Nevertheless, the responsible Capricorn Sun forms a harsh square with warrior Mars today, increasing the potential for petty ego skirmishes. Our adrenaline based fight-or-flight response might get the best of us, even if we know what to do. Meanwhile, we grow more hopeful once the Moon shifts into futuristic Aquarius at 12:02 pm EST.

Obtaining what you want today may be elusive if your frustration escapes its container and spills over into your world. Unfortunately, it’s too late to enroll in a stress management class. If you are feeling isolated, don’t blame others. Striking out only pushes them further away. Go running or hit the gym, but whatever you do, make sure to sweat it out. If you discuss your feelings with someone you trust, be sure to approach the topic gently and treat your confidant with the utmost respect.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You might want to take off the padded gloves today and express your dissatisfaction. But remember that if you lash out (even if it’s only with words) you will have to deal with the consequences sooner than later. Don’t create conflict unless you are sure that you want to fully engage with the rest of the process. It may be much more beneficial to wage peace in your personal life rather than war.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Although you might feel emotional tension all around you today, you can be quite productive if you simply adapt to the changing dynamics. But if your need to share what’s on your mind prompts you to fight the wrong battles, you could end up exhausted and not any closer to your goals. However, engaging in physical activity or doing any type of hard work reduces the stress and increases your chances for success.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
This is no time to be harboring resentments because unexpressed emotions have a way of cycling back around and catching you off guard. You may like the idea of withdrawing socially for a while, though you still might engage in an intense interaction if you feel threatened. If stress triggers a confrontation today, be sensible and do whatever you can to keep the conversation civil. You don’t need to take the bait if someone is egging you on and looking for trouble. Hot tempers won’t lead to a cool solution.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
If you think your positive intentions are being blocked by someone today, remind yourself that the obstacles in your path aren’t necessarily only on the outside. Naturally, you can’t just snap your fingers and change the external circumstances. Nevertheless, you are fully capable of altering how you react to the situation. Instead of confronting anyone, take a few deep breaths and just get on with your own work. The less you push back now, the better.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Free-floating anxiety can be quite bothersome today, especially if you’re trying to overcome feelings of isolation. At first, it might seem as if the solution to your dilemma is to share your thoughts with another person. But he or she may not be as accessible as you wish. Consider participating in a team sport or putting in extra hours on a group project. Either way, don’t withdraw now; keeping your energy moving is the best way to lift your spirits.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
A business or romantic partner may act too impulsively today, but your feelings don’t diminish in intensity even if you disengage from the situation. In some ways, you’re more frustrated since a lasting solution seems a long way off. There’s no reason to worry about fixing what has already happened. Just don’t make things worse now by losing your temper. Remember, you can still let your emotions flow without drawing others into your drama.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You might try to hold back a flood of fiery passions today, but your feelings are likely to spill out into the open anyhow. Be aware that others may be overwhelmed by your emotional heat wave if you suddenly release your stored-up tensions. It’s time for you to do what Scorpios do best: transform the negative into positive energy. No matter what the question is now, the answer is love.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You have an overabundance of physical energy, but you might believe that there’s no easy way to express it today. However, keeping your feelings locked up inside doesn’t work, either. You may mistakenly assume that if others knew what you are really thinking that they wouldn’t like you as much. Unfortunately, the truth is that by keeping secrets now, you’re inadvertently building walls where you don’t really need them. Be courageous; dismantle borders instead of fortifying them.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Hopefully, no one will push you too hard today since you are likely to respond in a way that is quite disruptive. Your internal sense of your own power is growing. Like a capacitor in an electrical circuit, you might hold back now until enough of a charge is built that your release has the desired impact. Just be careful not to act too soon or your recent hard work will be for naught. Patience is your best weapon of self-defense.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You are learning powerful lessons these days about what not to say. If you just express everything, the end result may be opposite of what you actually want. But withholding your feelings isn’t in your best interest, either. Whatever you share now can affect others, so it’s best to speak only after you reconsider your motives. Remember, it’s not just about you today; act for the greatest good for all involved.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Although you may feel residual anger from a recent situation, you are entering a new phase when you experience a wider range of emotions. This means that, assuming you pay attention to what’s in your heart, you can be more proactive in a positive manner rather than feeling like you are just at the mercy of the changing currents. Although you might not have control over your initial reaction to the current circumstances, you can choose how to respond. Demonstrate your good intentions by taking the high road whenever possible.
