The Moon enters community-minded Aquarius at 9:51 am EDT, shifting our focus from the individual to the social sphere. We identify with our tribe in the hopes of belonging to a larger cause. However, the more we become a part of a group, the more we realize that we are unique and separate from others. It is this need to be a part of humanity and an equal urge toward self-realization that creates the quirky paradox of the Aquarius Moon.

It’s time to face ghosts from your past, because things can become more difficult over the months ahead if you don’t. It may be all too tempting to just ignore old memories, but they will continue to haunt you unless you find a way to positively integrate them into your current world. Although you might choose to seek harmony through your relationships with others now, true peace of mind cannot be found until you realize the balance you are searching for is within yourself.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Your stubborn nature might get the best of you today, especially if you’re not paying attention to the warning signs. If you notice that you get emotionally worked up while defending your position or arguing for your point of view, stop for a moment to consider what’s really at stake. What are you afraid of? Your own answer can help you decide if it’s wise to hold your posture of resistance or if it’s time to let it go and move on.

Your own long-held beliefs can crystallize if under attack today. It’s not that you are particularly threatened by anyone, but conflict brings up old fears that get in the way of your current interactions. Your memories are a mixed blessing now. You would like to forget the past in order to enjoy yourself in the present moment, but something is holding you back just enough to keep you from going too far. Don’t sidestep the tension in favor of pursuing pleasure; creatively resolving your differences is empowering for everyone involved.

You’re doing a balancing act today as your feelings undergo radical change. However, your shifting moods are not a sign of instability. On the contrary, they demonstrate your emotional strength which allows your feelings to flow in their naturally fluid manner. Ultimately, establishing equilibrium is important too, since you don’t want to get washed away with the tides. Paradoxically, your smartest strategy is to hold onto the present moment while letting go of the past.

Current realizations are opening new doorways in your quest for love and intimacy. But these epiphanies might not make getting along with others any easier because you can suddenly recognize how much you stand in your own way. Thankfully, you have a big heart and have much to give to those you admire. By taking the time now to carefully reassess the part you play in the emotional dynamics, you could make long-lasting improvements to your most significant relationships.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
There’s an uncharacteristic rigidity to your decisions today. Usually, your mental adaptability enables you to incorporate new information and revise your choices accordingly. However, your solutions may be based upon what you don’t know — and what you don’t know now can be problematic down the road. Reserve your final answers until you’re completely satisfied that you have all the facts you need. Better safe than sorry.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You may find yourself in a rather uncomfortable position, but your current predicament is not just about today. Even if the stress in your social life has been unfolding for a while, an ongoing disagreement can come to a boiling point now as you realize there might not be an easy way out. However, the real solution isn’t about finding a quick fix; a premature resolution will just stop the process. Instead, get in touch with your own sense of vulnerability. You’ll come out the other side feeling stronger for what you experienced and wiser for what you learned.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may be a bit disconnected from your innermost feelings today, but oddly enough, you’re not uncomfortable with this emotional displacement. Think of it as a little vacation from your own high-intensity passions. You haven’t lost anything; whatever you’re not integrating now will cycle around soon enough. There’s no need to panic; just sit back, relax and count your blessings. Enjoy the drama-free zone while it lasts.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Although you could be more serious in your overall approach to life now, you still have much to learn from your current feelings. Keep all avenues of communication open to avert your current tendency to remain silent about whatever is bothering you. You don’t need to go to a therapist to experience the benefit of talk therapy. Sharing your most significant hopes and dreams with your friends and family helps you more than you can imagine.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Your physical energy is easily depleted today, especially if you aren’t taking proper care of yourself. Current stresses are building to a crescendo now as your head argues with your heart. But don’t try to force your emotions into submission with logical calculations. Instead of demonstrating your mastery by figuring out your best move, postpone any major decisions until you get some much-needed rest. Once the bounce is back in your step, you will be better equipped to handle any challenge that comes your way.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You might think that hiding your feelings is in your best interest today, but flashing a smile while keeping a stiff upper lip only throws the dynamics further off kilter. It may be inconvenient to share your personal needs on the job, especially if they differ from your professional obligations. Nevertheless, your integrity is at stake so start talking now. Fortunately, you can turn your current stress to your advantage by openly acknowledging your predicament and thanking the other person for listening. Then return to the work at hand with your best foot forward and a lighter heart.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Irrepressible issues from your past are here for one more round of processing prior to fading away for good. This emotional work may not be easy stuff to handle since it’s certainly not fun to talk about subjects that make you feel uncomfortable. Nevertheless, face your own shortcomings, look at your own fears and learn from your past mistakes. Things are not nearly as overwhelming as they seem; getting started is the hardest part.
