We may try to stay on a straight and narrow path today, but enticing distractions appear in the most unexpected places. Although the Moon slips into earthy Virgo at 2:08 am EST, her midday opposition to nebulous Neptune challenges us to keep our feet on the ground. Unfortunately, focusing on our work won’t cure our disorientation. Meanwhile, sexy Venus aligns with unruly Uranus, activating unconventional desires that are more thrilling than useful.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You’re itching to do something crazy today that goes against everyone’s expectations. Your inner child doesn’t want to stop to consider the consequences of your actions. Nevertheless, your sense of responsibility grows stronger throughout the day, motivating you to follow your bliss in such a way that you don’t totally turn your life upside down. Thankfully, with a little forethought, you can get away with having your cake and eating it, too.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You can transform challenging work into genuine fun today, because you have enough sense to make the best of nearly any situation. You may be so clever and cunning now that people actually believe you’re enjoying yourself and offer to pitch in and help. But unlike Tom Sawyer you have a surprise up your sleeve; you will paint the fence to meet your obligations even if no one else shows up. Satisfaction in a job well done is your sweet reward.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You tend to complicate your life by packing too many activities into one day. Ironically, you could accomplish even more if you stop long enough to make a sensible plan instead of flying by the seat of your pants. Although you thrive on spontaneity, it’s a frivolity you can’t afford now. Be realistic in your thinking and manage your time prudently until you establish a more sustainable pace.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You may have a brilliant idea that enables you to exceed someone’s expectations while earning more independence in the process. You want to escape from overly rigid routines and, thankfully, your good-natured approach to work today might just be the catalyst you need. But wishing for something to change isn’t enough; you must be willing to work hard in order to maximize your chance to break free.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You feel quite safe and secure while you’re on your own familiar territory at home or at work today, but captivating Venus is tempting you to try something new. Nevertheless, it’s not a wise idea to drop everything in search of carefree indulgences until you take care of timely financial chores. The order of things is significant, so set intelligent priorities and stick with them no matter what. Work now, play later.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You could be extremely self-critical now as you consider your recent behavior in a relationship or on the job. Nothing that anyone says to soothe you is enough to let you off your own hook. Fortunately, you don’t have to be your own worst enemy; you’re free to change your attitude on a moment’s notice. Instead of looking back and thinking about what you could have done differently, look forward and visualize a new and improved scenario. Begin creating your future today by painting it as you see it in your imagination.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Hidden obstacles may be more problematic than the obvious ones after the Moon slips into your 12th House of Secrets today. You have a sneaking suspicion that you’re missing critical information, but you can’t figure out where to look for it or even what it could be. Quit running around in circles chasing after something that might not exist. Simply accept your current limitations without letting them diminish your spirit; your positive attitude makes all the difference in the world now.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You’re cruising for social distractions today as the Virgo Moon is in your 11th House of Community. You’re not very motivated to work now; instead, you might prefer to step outside of your comfort zone and explore new territory. Luckily, your friends will probably rise to the occasion and support your recreational plans, even if they think your idea of fun is a bit unusual. Be flexible and meet them halfway, if necessary, so you can experience the camaraderie of communing with your tribe.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Instead of accepting anyone else’s authority today, take charge of your life the best way you see fit. Although others may be fully capable of contributing their expertise, your applicable knowledge gives you a distinct edge. Luckily, you can surprise everyone now with your superior organizational skills. Don’t be afraid to let people know what your plan is prior to your implementation. Adopting a more inclusive approach makes it easier for friends and family to help you reach your goals.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You want to run away from your current responsibilities and escape to somewhere that no one can find you now. But it’s not as if you’re feeling like your regular down-to-earth self today as the Moon opposes imaginative Neptune in your 9th House of Adventure. Nevertheless, your daydreams can serve a therapeutic purpose; you don’t have to travel anywhere exotic in order to feel relief. There’s no need to integrate your flights of fancy with the real world as long as you keep track of which is which.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re yearning to break out of a stagnant relationship pattern, but you have enough common sense now to bide your time and see what develops. Nevertheless, you’re not likely to negotiate away your independence and won’t be happy unless you express your personal freedom. Others will be more open to compromise if you show up with warmth and honesty. Your self-reliance is admirable, but beware of the emotional cost of striking out on your own.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You may believe you can drift along in a current relationship as it is, yet your friend or lover might want more of a commitment than you prefer to make today. But discussing uncomfortable issues isn’t your cup of tea, even if your partner seems to thrive on the conversation. If you acquiesce without expressing your needs, you could set a bad precedence for the future. Don’t just give in to someone’s demands to avoid an awkward discussion; you have a lot to learn now by exploring your resistance, instead.
