Our lives are steeped in stress today even if we pretend everything is okay. Talkative Mercury and affectionate Venus form tricky aspects that prompt us to take risks, but we still have to face the consequences of our actions if we attempt to avoid the critical issues of the day. The Moon’s shift into discriminating Virgo at 5:32 am EDT reminds us of the importance of minimizing unnecessary noise so we don’t get so distracted by our perceptions.

You want to be sailing on calmer emotional waters, but you may have to stir up a few waves of your own today if your values clash with someone else’s. There’s a fine line between maintaining your integrity and just being stubborn. Don’t give up before making your point.

You can quickly see what’s wrong with someone’s big scheme today, which prevents you from investing too much time or money in an unrealistic project.

It isn’t always easy to hone right in on what you offer others, but thinking about your contributions may be a very interesting exercise for you. Meanwhile, applying your energy to a mundane task isn’t a waste of time if you practice self-reflection along the way. Something as uninspiring as paying your bills can be uplifting today … if you keep your mind focused on what’s real. Ultimately, others will appreciate your ability to make the most of the present moment.

You normally don’t like too many distractions, yet you’re still obsessed with gathering as many facts as you can now. Unfortunately, possessing an abundance of information isn’t as reassuring as having certainty.

Knowing what to expect from a serious relationship makes the difference between a brilliant success and a discouraging failure.

Relationships will have a better chance to flourish if you don’t oversell your case.

Having a discussion about intimacy and actually being intimate with a loved one are not the same thing. It’s easier to approach this delicate subject from the point of view of an observer, even if you are confident enough to jump right into the fire now. Remember that the right amount of detachment can help you deal with your feelings much more effectively than letting yourself be overwhelmed by them.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Although you’re often better at describing a general concept than zooming in on the individual facts, today’s Virgo Moon enables you to separate the fine points from the big ideas. Meanwhile, a rugged Venus-Pluto alignment makes it tricky to gauge how much resistance you might need to exert in order to get what you want. Move slowly and reconsider all your options prior to making any critical decisions.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may be charmed by someone who behaves in a flirtatious manner toward you now. Unfortunately, other people’s words can be confusing and could lead you down a dangerous path if you fail to sort through all the incoming information. Remember that your analytical ability is one of your greatest strengths. Carefully think everything through instead of impulsively following your instincts.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You might feel like you’re riding a creative streak, but you’re still struggling with putting your best ideas into concrete action. Unfortunately, you could give up prematurely today if you aim your sights too high and set yourself up for frustration. However, if you don’t establish any goals at all, you may miss your chance to demonstrate your talents when doing extraordinary work. Quit thinking so much and just let your imagination flow.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your closest friends may ask for your undivided attention now. Ironically, their encouragement is also just what you need to support your current growth. However, you might have such unrealistic expectations that everyone falls short of their goals and lets you down today. Still, it’s crucial to appreciate what you have … you cannot afford to waste any energy on negativity. There’s no need to expect miracles; shining your light is enough to save the day.
