Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, September 17th

We may be confused by our own desires today because they don’t necessarily fit neatly into our current set of circumstances. The Moon drifts into psychic Pisces at 9:57 am EDT, opening our intuitive channels and sensitizing us to other people’s unspoken feelings. It’s tricky to separate our emotions from those we pick up from everyone else. Fortunately, our actions reflect our words as mental Mercury forms a supportive sextile to physical Mars.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It feels as if someone is keeping a secret from you today, yet the more you try to figure it out, the farther away the truth seems to get. Instead of worrying about what you might be missing, concentrate your attention on what you do know and act accordingly. Save your detective work for another day when others are more willing to communicate. Take the high road and see who follows.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your current dilemma requires balancing your personal desires with the needs of others at work. Fortunately, you can rely on your ability to logically analyze the differences and then make decisions based upon what will work best for a larger group. Being selfish now will only create additional problems. There’s no need to panic since you’ll probably get what you want soon enough. In the meantime, show others that you can be a valuable team player by jumping in to help.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may not have the freedom to express your feelings at work today. There could be unexpected consequences if you go ahead and say what’s on your mind, but you might choose to speak your peace anyhow. Although you aren’t responsible for the reactions of anyone else, you still need to get your job done on time. If you want other people’s cooperation, take a deep breath and consider their feelings first.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Making travel plans for the future is tricky business today since you are likely to aspire toward more extravagance than you can actually afford. Unrealistic dreams could come crashing down to earth if you try to cover too much ground or spend too much money. Instead of running into an insurmountable obstacle, it’s smarter now to rein in your vision of an idealistic getaway. Keep it real in order to make it possible.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your need for intimacy might create situations that ultimately make you feel uncomfortable today. It’s not that you want to avoid getting closer to someone you truly admire; it’s just that you don’t like limiting your options. Focus your attention on what you are experiencing in the present moment instead of dreaming about indefinite possibilities that may or may not happen sometime in the future. Be here now.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although you logically know what’s best for you, you’re still confused when people tell you what they want today. But listening to someone else doesn’t have to change what you already know about yourself, even if you are more sensitive to the needs of your partner now than to your own desires. Remember, you can be available to others while still taking care of yourself.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s complicated to figure out what is expected of you at work today, but that might not prevent you from trying to do what’s right. Don’t worry about the reactions of your associates, since they probably won’t tell you what they’re really thinking anyhow. Accept the fact that others may hide their true feelings because they don’t want to stir up the waters any more than necessary. You can’t go wrong if you act for the greater good of everyone involved.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

A romantic attraction might make you feel a bit unstable today as the Moon slips into your 5th House of Love and Play. It’s natural for your feelings to swing one way and then the other as you play out the possibilities in your mind. It’s okay to acknowledge that you really don’t know what’s best, even if you want to arrive at a final conclusion now. Ease up on the controls for a while and just observe your changing moods. You’re better off postponing a relationship decision for a couple of days and enjoying the ride.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Unresolved feelings about a family member may instigate a minor crisis at home today. You might try to ignore the issue by focusing on your work responsibilities, but this will probably just make matters worse. There’s no need to add to the tension with your denial when you can simply discuss your concerns without taking control of the situation. Remember, you don’t need to have all the answers at this time; just showing up is enough to make others happy.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your desire to micromanage your schedule today creates more problems than it solves. Unfortunately, others may not be willing to blindly go along with your plans and there isn’t a lot that you can say or do to change their minds. Ironically, loosening your grip on the reins could actually help you to get what you want faster than you might expect.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

A financial decision that has been weighing heavily on your mind might be resolved today in a single instant. You may have a sudden flash of inspiration that enables you to clearly see the solution that you were missing. When you realize that the issue is less about money and more about what you value, the logical choice will become crystal clear. It’s not the bottom line that counts now; it’s the feeling you have at the bottom of your heart.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your emotional inconsistency could be driving someone crazy today, even if you aren’t aware of your erratic behavior. Others might currently see you as irresponsible; however, you think that you know what you want and are willing to follow through with your plan to accomplish your goals. Nevertheless, your feelings are unsettled now that the Moon is back in your sign, and it would be wise to wait until after the Full Moon on Thursday before you make a major commitment. In the meantime, cultivate your dreams and see what develops.
