We may lose any sense of objectivity we have now as our blind optimism obscures troublesome facts. Although the power of positive thinking helps us overcome some obstacles, overconfidence creates more problems than it solves when mischievous Mercury opposes bombastic Jupiter today. The Moon’s shift into imaginative Pisces at 7:48 pm EST blurs fact with fancy, and her conjunction with surreal Neptune encourages us to make up our own truth.

You may talk as if you’re on top of your game today, but you might be surprised when you realize the powerful effect you have on people in your immediate environment. Even if you are doing a bit of daydreaming now, consider making practical changes based on concrete experiences rather than some philosophical tangent. But don’t attempt to fix everything all at once; take one step at a time.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Powerful people at work can totally overwhelm you with their grandiose plans today. It’s apparent their ideas are misguided and they need to pay closer attention to the finer points. It may be your job now to gently remind others that even the greatest journeys are dependent on getting the details right. Instead of just saying yes, it’s crucial to tell the truth exactly as you see it. Being the messenger isn’t always easy, but someone has to do it and this time it’s you.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You might feel as if you have promised more than you can deliver today. Perhaps you have lost focus and are overcompensating by trying to accomplish too much. The simplest solution is to be honest, but you may be afraid to admit that you’re in over your head. Nevertheless, there’s no reason to pretend that you have it all together if you actually don’t. You will be better off in the long run by showing your vulnerability now and asking for help.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Fun and games sound better than hard work, but you’re not in the mood to skip out and join your friends, even if it looks like they’re having a good time. You are more likely to encourage everyone else to play while you stay behind to fulfill your obligations. It’s not that you have such an impeccable work ethic; rather, you couldn’t relax now knowing how much you have to do. Cover your bases first and then join up with your pals later.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You may have to take a stand at work today; however, you might oversimplify a rather complex issue in order to make your point. There are conflicting opinions to be considered now, yet each person seems to be working with a different set of facts. Even if you believe that your solution is the most elegant, be prepared to let the group consensus override your personal position. Building trust with your community is more important than being right.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Although you’re often the champion of details, today it’s difficult to sustain your concentration. Even a quick phone call or short email could turn into a major project that distracts you from your goals. Every little thought opens a door to another journey of epic proportions. However, you don’t have to go on every trip that’s offered. Do yourself a favor by keeping your life as simple as possible until you’re truly ready for something new.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Normally you can avoid stress by talking out of both sides of your mouth until you muster up enough courage to begin a difficult conversation. However, today you may be eager to share your most intense desires. Your direct approach and willingness to go out on a limb could surprise others and possibly even put them off. Broach the subject slowly and wait for positive acknowledgment before going further.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may grow impatient in a relationship-oriented conversation today because the other person seems to take forever to say even the simplest thing. Maybe part of the problem is that you are sure of yourself when it comes to feelings, even if you choose to remain silent. However, once you decide to play your hand, you might dive right in. Paradoxically, you can speed things up by backing off and allowing others the time to put their emotions into words.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
It may be challenging to keep your mind on your own agenda today when other people lure you into stories about their fantastic ideas. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to remember that you are the one who is in control of your own thoughts. If you accomplish your assigned tasks first, then you’ll have adequate time later on to get lost in your dreams or go along for a ride on someone else’s.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The intensity of your co-workers may become overwhelming today, yet listening to their crazy ideas can also be a major source for growth and fun. In fact, this could be a perfect moment to participate in team sports, join a club or get active in a social cause. Even if it’s a workday, set your obligations aside for a while and make plans to enjoy the sweet company of others.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You have something important to say today, yet it seems as if you don’t have enough time to start the conversation. Activities at work may be pulling your energy away from personal matters, but it’s critical to find enough balance so you don’t ignore your home and family. Although you might not be able to tackle the entire situation all at once, begin by talking about what’s most crucial and move on from there.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
It feels as if others are leaning on you today, but you may not be very emotionally available to them. Someone might want to talk about a specific issue, but your overly optimistic mood motivates you to stick with generalities. This difference of approach doesn’t need to be problematic as long as you’re willing to give a little for the sake of lasting friendship. Opening your heart is enough to invite positive change.
