We may grow weary of the high-strung mental energy that has us feeling on edge. Communicator Mercury forms disquieting aspects with judgmental Jupiter, stern Saturn and reckless Uranus, turning simple discussions into complicated battles for intellectual dominance. Fortunately, the Moon shifts into compassionate Pisces at 5:49 am EST to soften an otherwise anxious planetary landscape. Meanwhile, a Venus-Jupiter quincunx tempts us to overindulge.

You might not be willing to trust your feelings today, since you can’t follow your thoughts to their logical conclusion. You are all for telling the truth, but there’s so much on your mind now that every nuance cannot be communicated. Hidden realities widen your perspective and teach you a lot about the real world. The more open you are to the realms of fantasy, the more you can imagine new vistas ahead.

You may be quite relaxed today for a back-to-work Monday since you have already given yourself permission to chill out with your friends. Although responsibilities still require your attention today, make time to restore your energy. Don’t be overly concerned if you leave a job unfinished for a while; treating yourself to a bit of pleasure now shifts your attitude in a positive direction.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Although you might not be eager to meet your obligations today, others may be relying on you more than you realize. Temporarily putting aside your long-term dreams enables you to interact fully in the present moment, but could also contribute to your angst now. No matter how uncertain you are about your future, your heartfelt efforts to communicate with your friends are greatly appreciated and will lift your spirits, too.

You may start the day feeling like an unhappy Crab that has been taken from its watery cave. However, as waves of familiar emotions wash through your life today, you’re reminded of how important it is to stay in touch with those you love. Don’t worry if you can’t explain your newly found confidence to anyone else; just continue about your business without trying to rationalize your behavior. Nevertheless, connecting with others is what matters most.

Your current dissatisfaction with a relationship may increase today, for you might realize what you are missing. But the real problem goes even deeper than what someone else has to offer; it’s about your need for total engagement. Focus on what you can give to others instead of simply thinking about what you’re not receiving in return. Everyone wins if no one is keeping score.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Someone who puts you in closer touch with your feelings may enter your life today, even if you don’t know what to do about your reaction. Until now, you were in a very analytical frame of mind, leaving little room for the confusion of irrational emotions. However, you might need to accept that logic won’t always bring you the satisfaction you seek. Your stress will dissipate if you can get out of your head and into your heart.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re unsure of how to go about accomplishing your goals today, but don’t make excuses or procrastinate any longer. Instead of trying to create a plan, rely on your intuition to tell you what to do next. Although you may feel uncomfortable with this strategy, it just might produce the best results. However, don’t overreact; taking an extreme position won’t help you reach your destination any sooner.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may create more stress by trying to resolve the conflict between your current desires and a more logical approach to your needs. Thankfully, the tension should begin to settle down today without any specific action on your part. There are subtle shifts in the present circumstances now that can give you a glimpse of the smoother sailing ahead. But don’t needlessly rock the boat; just stay on course until the discord dissipates.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Your lack of commitment might present a problem for a family member or your partner today. It’s not that you’re avoiding an uncomfortable issue; it’s just that your priorities are different from everyone else’s and not based on their expectations. If you don’t want to be pinned down now, let others know how you’re feeling as soon as possible. A difficult situation can simply be avoided if you speak up right away.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You’re trying to do the responsible thing today, but one distraction after another may prevent you from fulfilling your current obligations. Ultimately, it’s less about what others think than it is about your own self-judgment. Be easy on yourself now, for there will be time later to return to unfinished business or to reconsider where to go from here
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Instead of rushing into a new task, stop long enough to clarify your goals, assess your resources and make sure that traveling a different path is truly worth the effort. Even if you decide to build on what you have already started, don’t move ahead too fast. Fortunately, it will be much easier to succeed if you take the time to develop your strategy first.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Although you might not feel fully prepared for what’s around the next corner, the Moon’s return to your sign indicates the beginning of a new emotional cycle. If you have left chores unfinished, unexpected events may force you to do what you should have already done. However, if your old business is completed, then opportunities may open up for you now. Just be sure that you honor your dreams when starting something new.
