We have a solid connection between our thoughts and our behavior today. We walk our talk now that mental Mercury forms a harmonious trine with go-getter Mars. Our physical energy is connected to our brains, for better or for worse. However, mind over matter is good news only when our thinking is sound. Fortunately, the powerful Scorpio Moon forms several smooth aspects this afternoon, intensifying our passions and turning our ideas into actions.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You may avoid the most direct path to your goals now because you enjoy the interesting diversions that others present along the way. Although it’s not easy to concentrate, today you could benefit from a concerted effort to stay focused. Ultimately, exercising self-discipline is more effective than following someone else’s demand that you obey the rules. Accept your responsibilities as a challenge; you can earn respect by sticking to the program and fulfilling your commitments
(Apr 20 – May 20)
A close friend might disappoint you today and you could even feel betrayed and angry at first. Nevertheless, the Moon’s presence in your 7th House of Others urges you to reconsider your initial reaction. Let go of any outmoded emotional responses, for you have a chance to make important changes now that can ultimately increase your security rather than jeopardizing it. Reassessing what you want from a relationship is a good place to start.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Keep your chin up and work hard today, even if your chores aren’t very satisfying. The rewards will arrive later on if you take care of the toughest jobs now. But this isn’t about going against the grain or bucking the system. Even if you believe you have a smarter way to run things, you’re better off to follow a traditional path and obey those with authority until you have completed your obligations. Whistle while you work and you’ll be done before you know it.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Oddly enough, taking care of your responsibilities might lead to a romantic opportunity today, or, at least, an enjoyable encounter. You may feel overly cautious about overstepping social boundaries, nevertheless, don’t rule out the possibility of getting more personal with an acquaintance. Just remember, pushiness won’t work in your favor; a friendly gesture is enough to get your message across. Then wait to see what develops before making your next move.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You are often the most sociable one in your group, but you may do well to pass on the party invitation now that the Moon is moving through your 4th House of Emotional Security. Of course you still want to enjoy yourself, but your contemplative state of mind suggests that an evening at home alone or with your family might be more in sync with your current mood. Taking some quality time for yourself today may be enough to put you back in a more outgoing attitude by tomorrow.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Although you might offer your best ideas to someone else today, your assistance may not be too well received. It doesn’t matter that your intentions are honorable; a simple comment can be taken as a serious criticism. Going out of your way to share positive words and gentle encouragement along with your suggestions gives you a better chance of being heard now. Your kindness will be appreciated more than you think.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
The emphasis on your financial picture continues with the reflective Moon still traveling through your 2nd House of Personal Resources. If you are thinking about making a large purchase, consider the long-term value of your possible acquisition. If it isn’t a good deal, let it go or try negotiating a price that you could more readily afford. Remember, there’s a big difference between what you want and what you actually need.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
It’s time to focus on yourself for a while by putting sensible limits on your social activities and commitments. Exercising self-restraint makes you more effective today and could even simplify your life in ways you never imagined. You may be tempted to start something new, but it’s wiser to wait a few days before forging ahead. Instead of scattering your energy now, concentrate on making practical plans to reach your personal goals.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You might need to adjust your plans today due to circumstances beyond your control. And even if you don’t have to reschedule your entire day, it’s still possible to lose your cool if something throws you out of rhythm. Remaining light on your feet helps you maintain your balance now, for an unexpected turn of events could be a blessing in disguise. Luckily, you may be released from an unwanted obligation and end up having more time to yourself. Stay calm and keep your sense of humor close at hand.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
A group of your friends may want to include you in their fun plans, but you aren’t so quick to say yes today. The secretive Scorpio Moon is approaching somber Saturn in your 11th House of Community, encouraging self-restraint when it comes to socializing in a group setting. Don’t judge yourself too harshly if you’re feeling reclusive. Honor your needs by graciously declining the invitation and creating an evening just for you. Indulge yourself and be gentle with your heart.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Someone’s great idea might catch your attention today, but think carefully before committing your energy and lending a helping hand. It might sound like an exciting project at first, but it could turn into more of a burden than you want to take on. However, if you reject a colleague’s plan, spend extra time with that person explaining your decision, so he or she doesn’t feel hurt by your refusal. A bit of diplomacy can fix a problem before it even manifests.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are on quite a philosophical roll while the Moon zips through your 9th House of Big Ideas. Step back and take a long-term picture of your life so you can get a fresh view on what’s currently happening. Look for any unhealthy patterns that you missed when you were too busy to notice them. For now, the lessons you learn along the way are more important than reaching your destination.
