Interactions become muddled today as communicator Mercury opposes murky Neptune. Although we aim for precision in our words since Mercury is now moving through exacting Virgo, we lose clarity as the mists of Neptune descend to bring confusion. Analysis is more difficult, but imagination takes center stage. Thankfully, the Moon shifts into pragmatic Taurus at 9:13 am EDT, anchoring us to Earth and preventing us from drifting off into fantasyland.

You are eager to finish up old business today, even if only in preparation for the coming week. You may be confident that you can accomplish all the tasks that are on your current list. Nevertheless, concentrating on your work is a struggle now; you want to spend your time daydreaming about more creative pursuits. Don’t get sidetracked; stick to your agenda and you will be rewarded for what you do rather than for what you think.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Even if you choose your words carefully today, there’s still plenty of room for your friends to misinterpret what you say. You may believe you are being specific, but others still miss your point. Perhaps you require additional time to fully develop your ideas, even though you might not realize it yet. There’s no need to judge yourself harshly; it’s okay to unfold your perspective slowly. You really don’t need to be in such a hurry to share your story.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You may be unclear as to what you should be doing today, even if your responsibilities have been spelled out in great detail. Nevertheless, you want to know how your part integrates with the big picture before you carry out your job. Although it isn’t easy to stop asking questions, it’s smarter now to simply do exactly as instructed without attempting to understand how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Let go and watch everything magically fall into place.

Although you’re in a contemplative mood today, your thoughts are slightly out of focus. It’s as if you are under a spell that intensifies the magic while preventing you from seeing things as they truly are now. Luckily, you have the ability to conjure up an ideal situation in your mind and then step into it by using your powers of active imagination. This meditative trick may not be useful for making a practical decision, but it’s quite helpful for exploring creative pursuits.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Something unusual is unfolding today yet you can’t seem to put your finger on it. Nevertheless, you are lured toward investigating beyond the obvious in the hope of finding magic hiding in the shadows. Unfortunately, too much searching might actually distract you from the amazing beauty that is right under your nose. For now, the devil may really be in the details.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
It’s quite a feat to cleverly embellish your story so much today that others actually believe you’re telling the truth. Uncharacteristically, you aren’t as worried about the facts now as you are in keeping people interested in your message. There’s nothing wrong with letting your imagination run wild as long as you practice full disclosure, so everyone knows that you’re just sharing a dream.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
It’s easier to be a follower today rather than a leader, even if you have a very specific goal in mind. You can certainly turn on the charm in order to attract someone’s attention, but it may be harder to demonstrate the authority that it takes to be in charge. There’s no shame in letting someone else be the boss now while you relinquish control and recharge your batteries. Being a team player improves your chances for success.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may express your feelings and present your ideas in a very seductive way today. Although others might not be interested at first, you are adept at drawing them into your story by conjuring up mythical images and fantastic characters. Once you have a captive audience, you can cleverly pull them in even further. However, subtle manipulation of the facts leads to trouble, especially if you’re motivated by fear or greed. There’s nothing wrong with painting a beautiful picture but it’s still safer to simply stick with the facts.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You inspire others today with your grand visions and your carefully orchestrated words. Your gift of gab allows you to string together one idea after another as if each is a pearl on a necklace. However, weaving too many threads of thought into an enchanting tapestry of concepts grows overly complicated, leaving your friends confused, rather than motivated. You may be tempted to play the role of a muse, but it’s wise to balance your creative side by also being practical. Leading by example is your most effective approach.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
If furthering your education is on your mind, start nailing down some of the details right away. Thankfully, you have the patience to focus on the specifics, without losing sight of the big picture now. However, you must be careful not to concentrate too much effort in the wrong direction. Making preliminary decisions today is an excellent idea as long as you leave some options on the table for another few weeks. No matter what your current plans are, expand your vision of the future.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Unrealistic expectations about a recent investment or a large purchase involving others could get you into trouble now. Although you might be able to make money or acquire something of value, you need to take plenty of extra time to separate your hopes from reality. Avoid getting swept up in someone’s idealism today; it’s not wise to believe everything you are told. Diligently check the facts if you want to ensure success.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You’re exceptionally receptive to other people’s ideas today, making you also susceptible to deception. Thankfully, this magical aspect can also awaken your spirituality, inspire your creativity and increase your fascination with music and art. It’s challenging to distinguish between your fantasies and reality now; mischievous Mercury’s opposition to seductive Neptune suggests that you should ask a few questions before you wander down a garden path. Follow your bliss, not someone else’s.
