Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, October 12th

Today’s self-directed Aries Moon provokes us to initiate action, but mischievous Mercury’s fluid trine to otherworldly Neptune distracts us with dreamy thoughts. Even the simplest and most straightforward plan feels like a chore. Additionally, the Moon’s opposition to Mercury means we can argue about something that’s ultimately not very important. Thankfully, the Moon’s shift into practical Taurus at 9:34 pm EDT brings us back down to earth.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may convince yourself that everything is fine in a relationship today. Although you probably realize complicated issues need resolution, you prefer to avoid the facts so you don’t have to handle the current situation. It’s a gift to see potential in others that’s not yet manifested, but it’s not a good idea to substitute your dreams for the truth. Pay attention to what’s right in front of your nose before it’s too late.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Intense emotions are springing forth from your subconscious today, but they might make you so uncomfortable that you choose to bury them. You want less complexity in your life, but your desires can be rather complicated now. Even if you believe that you are clearly expressing your passion, your intentions still may be misunderstood. Don’t assume that someone else knows what you need. Be patient and take the time to confirm that your message has been accurately received.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Today is perfect for expressing your heart in an imaginative manner, but it might not be as good for getting a detailed message across as Mercury’s trine to illusory Neptune muddles your communication. Your daydreams can be sweet as long as you don’t think that your current thoughts are practical. Wait until mental clarity returns tomorrow before attempting to say something that has lasting significance.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You might wish that you could stay home and lose yourself in creative projects today, but the Moon in your 10th House of Public Responsibility is not very forgiving. Nevertheless, you’re likely to spend time daydreaming about everything else you would rather be doing now. Unfortunately, fun and games may need to be postponed for a few days. Rather than fretting about what you cannot do, be thankful for what you can actually accomplish if you put your mind to it.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are lost in an idyllic dream about bringing a fantasy into reality as nebulous Neptune in your 7th House of Partners harmonizes with cerebral Mercury. However, once you open your eyes, your daily life may be overflowing with pressing responsibilities. Although you’re tempted to linger in your imagination, it would be unwise to avoid the current situation. Bringing your attention back to reality can make a positive difference when you need it most.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s hard to let go of your preconceived notions about what your day will bring, but it’s crucial to move beyond your fantasies and finish your chores. Reality is elusive now because your ruling planet Mercury is working under the influence of dreamy Neptune. Let the most important decisions slide until tomorrow. Once the fog clears and your clarity returns, you will be able to choose more wisely.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

On this last day of thoughtful Mercury in Libra, you are carefully weighing and balancing your choices. You realize that it’s important to finish up old business today, but you would rather enjoy yourself as Mercury activates dreamy Neptune in your 5th House of Fun and Games. The conflict between work and play might be aggravating, so seek out activities that calm you down. You can always catch up on your work tomorrow when you have a fresh perspective.


Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may feel trapped in a rut and are tempted to take a risk just to stir things up today. Unfortunately, changing your routine without a solid strategy could ultimately be more upsetting than exciting. Use your imagination to picture the ideal outcome and then create a plan to achieve your goals. Don’t try to do it all in one day; you’ll have a better chance tomorrow to fill in all the details.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are focused on fulfilling your obligations today, but could be lured off course by your friends or co-workers. Their big ideas sound enticing to you, but grandiose plans are not likely grounded in reality. Don’t believe everything you’re told now; if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Nevertheless, it won’t hurt to dream as long as you wait a couple of days before starting something new.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You normally don’t like feeling disoriented, and today’s ethereal Mercury-Neptune trine could prompt you to waste too much time trying to re-establish your footing. Unfortunately, stability is elusive now, but the uncertainty could be beneficial if you allow yourself to question your assumptions about your career goals. There’s no need to make any life-changing decision yet; answers will appear as early as tomorrow.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your dreams feel close enough to touch with idealistic Neptune in your sign harmonizing with trickster Mercury in your 9th House of Future Vision. But your ideas only seem sound until you actually try to make them tangible. Although it’s wise to listen to your intuition, it’s also crucial to rely on facts, not fantasies. Give yourself permission to meander through your imagination without any pressure. Floating in the symbolic realms today leads to more rational planning tomorrow.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You don’t have much of a chance to be very logical today as your key planet Neptune lures you into Fantasyland. Common sense isn’t your strong suit now, but you can play this to your advantage if you don’t try to force any practical decisions. Even if you must perform your regular job duties, there’s still time to drift off and contemplate the spiritual mysteries after your work is done.
