An intense cosmic drama impacts relationships this month, yet the sensible Taurus Moon reminds us to keep our feet on the ground. However, change is inevitable as the dynamic square between revolutionary Uranus and transformational Pluto culminates on November 1. The action is heating up and we must focus our attention on our long-term goals, even if mischievous Mercury’s retrograde turn tomorrow slows down our progress for the next three weeks.

You may resist any form of constraint today, but practicing self-discipline is a very effective strategy, even in small doses. It’s not that you are out of control; it’s just that you might agree to deliver more than you can handle now. Unfortunately, you could ruin a good thing if you accept too much responsibility without setting clearly defined boundaries. At least, think twice before saying yes.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Trying to simultaneously juggle too many chores might impress someone at first, but everything changes if you can’t complete what you start. Effectively breaking down a large task into manageable components enables you to concentrate on each one separately. Although a major project may be overwhelming, you can accomplish more than you expect if you just take it one piece at a time. Inch by inch it’s a cinch; yard by yard it’s hard.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Your playful approach to serious issues can be too much for someone else to handle today. A friend or partner might even complain that you aren’t working hard enough to hold up your end of the bargain. Nevertheless, you believe that you’re actually doing more than your fair share. If anyone comments on your lack of productivity, shrug it off. Don’t let a battle of dueling egos take over your day. Put forth your very best effort and your actions will speak for themselves.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You could be so blunt with your opinions today that you accidentally hurt someone’s feelings. You’re a bundle of extremes now as you push out beyond the old limits. You imagine a variety of possibilities where others only see obstacles. You can explain exactly where they have gone off track, but being critical of everyone else won’t help anything at all. Sharpening your skills and improving your productivity enable you to lead by example, instead.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You might take the idea of being busy to a whole new level today, but secretly you would rather be relaxing. You want to have fun but you intuitively realize that the current temptations are acting as one big test of your willpower. It’s not wise to just give in to your irresponsible inner child now; you will feel better about yourself when you behave like a grown-up, instead. Whistling while you work inspires everyone around you to do the same.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Regaining control of your finances and getting a handle on your spending might be tricky business today. There’s no need for impulsive behavior, especially if you are considering the purchase of a luxury item in order to add more beauty to your life. Unfortunately, buying something special may still leave you feeling emotionally empty now. Look beyond the material world to discover the fulfillment you seek. The most precious things in life are free.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Taking pride in your appearance comes as second nature to you and you like to look your best, no matter what you are doing. However, you could push vanity too far now as the radiant Sun in your 1st House of Personality aligns with unrelenting Pluto. You can inadvertently set up a power struggle if you don’t rein in your ambitions early on. It’s better to show support for your team today than to run out ahead of the pack.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
It doesn’t matter much if your dreams are unrealistic; you’re not ready to give up on them just yet. Paradoxically, you’re quite optimistic about your future even if your progress has been delayed. You believe that your logic is clear, but it’s challenging to be productive now if your perspective is warped. If you ask your closest supporters for advice, make sure that you actually listen to what they say. A simple reality check may be all that you need to get back on track.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Speculating about money and power is likely to be high on your agenda today. You might have an opportunity in front of you that’s hard to resist. Someone may offer to give you something for nothing, but rest assured that same person will return to collect on a debt or promise. If you don’t inflate your expectations now, you won’t have to deal with any disappointments later. Follow your intuition but keep your common sense close at hand.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You can feel your emotional intensity building up again, but today you are unsure whether to trust your instincts or your logic. Unfortunately, you may still be smarting from a recent run-in with an authority figure, yet you have enough new ideas now to turn a previous setback to your advantage. Don’t worry about winning or losing; honoring your intentions and doing your absolute best is good enough.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You want to examine both sides of a complicated issue now, but this mental exercise won’t bring you any closer to a solution. Fortunately, finding a lasting compromise isn’t nearly as important today as you believe. Just drawing everyone’s hidden agendas out into the open is enough mischief for one day since it clears the air of any residual tension. Turn on the light of awareness and let nature take its course
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Believing in yourself brings untold benefits because you realize you can’t always count on others to support you and your work. It might surprise you today if an associate takes the time to help you without expecting anything in return. Let down your guard; this isn’t the moment to prove how independent you are. Instead of feigning self-sufficiency and pushing others away, accept their generosity with an open heart and a smile.
