We might attempt to stay within the safety of the protective walls of our homes and the coziness of our familiar relationships now that the Moon is moving through cautious Cancer. Although a stressful lunar square to talkative Mercury coaxes us out of our shells, we are still hesitant to say too much. Thankfully, we relax and grow more expressive once the Moon favorably aligns with the Sun and then shifts into lively Leo at 11:09 pm EDT.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You may be disappointed by the way things are turning out today, but you’re probably in better shape than you realize if you can let go of your previous expectations. You will have more opportunities later on to bring your day-to-day obligations into alignment with your high ideals. Now is the time to exercise self-restraint and deliver on what you’ve already promised rather than just moving on to what’s next. Happily, your future looks brighter once you have handled unfinished business from the past
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You could inadvertently take on way too much today because you may underestimate the size of a job. Part of the problem is that you can’t let go of a project until it feels right, so you may spend time going back over your previous work. Although others won’t likely notice the difference, it’s important that you honor your own need for excellence. Your best bet might be to postpone some chores for another day. Quality counts now more than ever; your reputation is on the line.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Slowing the pace of your work may not sound like the smartest thing to do, but it’s wise to rest now when you have the chance. Unfortunately, you can’t just declare today a personal holiday, so focus your energy on what you absolutely must accomplish before treating yourself to a bit of time off. Considering the long road you have ahead of you, replenishing your energy along the way is a good idea. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

The evocative Moon is rattling your 1st House of Self, taking you on a wild emotional ride. Stay unattached to every thought as it comes and goes. Don’t push away anger and don’t pull in the desires. Just allow your feelings to run their own course without trying to control them. However, this doesn’t mean that you must share your inner process with those around you. Observing your journey from a slightly detached point of view teaches you a valuable lesson
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Although you Lions are known for your dramatic self-expression, putting your thoughts out in the open might prove to be too much trouble today. Once you let one little feeling escape, the windows to your soul are thrown open and all your emotions could come pouring out. Even if you think you have solid boundaries in place, it may be hard to stop midstream. Err on the side of caution now and keep your secrets to yourself.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You could be so concerned about what your friends are thinking of you now that you work yourself into a state of anxiety. The reflective Cancer Moon’s presence in your 11th House of Social Engagements prompts you to feel as if someone doesn’t want to include you in their social group. But it’s your heightened sensitivity and not anyone else’s negative judgment that actually motivates your self-protective tactics. Even if you’re afraid to express your vulnerability today, try to remain receptive to the overtures of others.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Some of your objective thoughts might need to be hidden from view today because analysis leads you to one conclusion while your heart says something else. You can almost convince yourself that you don’t have to become entangled in someone else’s affairs. However, after considering all the rational reasons to retreat, toss them aside and do what feels best. Your gut won’t steer you wrong now if you keep your ego out of the picture.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your romantic dreams can be realized today if you counterbalance tender expression with an air of detachment. It’s not that you want to avoid an intimate connection with someone special, it’s just that you also need your personal space. Be careful; you could get caught in the middle as you try to sort out this internal conflict. Make it easier on everyone by refraining from extreme reactions either way. Sharing your heart isn’t as scary as you think.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Seek the simplest way out of an emotionally awkward situation today by practicing the fine art of procrastination. Although this isn’t often considered to be a healthy strategy, avoiding conflict and delaying an important decision could be your smartest move now. Letting events take their own course lessens the intensity, allowing the resistance to naturally dissipate on its own. Give things a day or two and then try again.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You can see the work piling up in front of you, but your inclination is to remain quiet rather than expressing your concerns. You may be guardedly optimistic because you have confidence in your skills, even if you realize that accomplishing your goals won’t be easy. Don’t waste time; start clearing the obstacles that are in your path so you can make it to the top of the mountain where you belong.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It’s tricky to find your rhythm today because whatever you do, it feels like something’s off-kilter. Oddly enough, this subtle discomfort motivates you to take care of many little tasks that remain unfinished. Instead of complaining about all your work, transform your annoyance into action with a little help from your friends. Leaning on someone you can trust sets you back on solid ground. Everyone needs a little friendly encouragement now and then.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
It’s not that anything in particular is wrong today; it’s just that you don’t have the luxury of saying what’s on your mind. Sharing your real concerns might send someone else into an emotional tailspin, which would only make your day more challenging. Thankfully, you can step up to the plate and help others feel more comfortable with their feelings. Instead of rocking the boat now, be a hero by bringing stability into the lives of those you love.
