Conflicting emotions lead to complicated personal interactions today. Romance is favored as Venus and Mars align harmoniously, but Venus, the planet of love and money, also dynamically squares serious Saturn, isolating us from the sweet things in life. The imaginative Pisces Moon offers a temporary escape route through fantasies, but we eventually must face practical issues and take action once the Moon shifts into assertive Aries at 9:53 pm EDT.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You wake up and are out the door today before you even know your exact destination. But later on you may feel the need to pull back and reassess your direction. You intuitively know that something isn’t quite right and you are correct to trust your instincts now. It’s okay to socially retreat until you are ready for more involvement. Don’t make a big deal about your change of heart; just let everyone know your current uncertainty won’t last long and you’ll be back to your old self before they even know it.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Paradoxically, you may be acting in a confident manner today while being hesitant at the same time. Your key planet Venus is under tense pressure from austere Saturn, and you might temporarily feel quite alone, even undeserving of love. Thankfully, Venus also forms a sweet trine to energetic Mars, empowering you to overcome your self-doubt. Switching your focus to others and spending some time with your friends ultimately helps you feel better about yourself.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
An uncomfortable feeling may be gnawing away at the edge of your awareness today and you cannot shake it off. Although you’re often quite lighthearted, relationship dynamics might not seem in sync now. You don’t feel as if you fit in the way you usually do, and being alienated on your home turf isn’t fun. It seems like the problem is external, but closer analysis could reveal that the emotional discord is connected to your fears. A change in your attitude can improve the chemistry quicker than you think.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You might want someone’s shoulder to lean on today, but you may not be completely satisfied with the support you receive. There’s no need to put on a smiley face if you’re not feeling it. However, initiating an inner dialogue with your own subconscious can help to uncover the source of your loneliness. Establishing temporary boundaries around your heart protects you from being hurt, but withdrawing emotionally could be isolating. Take care of your needs without shutting down your heart in the name of fear.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
The dynamics of a partnership seem so good and feel so bad all at the very same time. Circumstances appear to be going your way at first, but things might not end up according to your plan. You feel as if you don’t want to be here today, but here you are, nonetheless. The good news is you are fully responsible for creating pleasure in your life. Whatever you do, don’t give up on making positive change. You may be pleasantly surprised with how quickly things turn around in just a few short days
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Current responsibilities may create complications today because you can’t spend much time with those you love. Others might be getting the wrong idea as they feel a distance between you, but you’re not really trying to push them away. Nevertheless, they will likely react negatively as if you are shutting them out. Letting people know about your time constraints in advance keeps the expectations to a minimum.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re well-known for your ambivalence, which can make your life more difficult than necessary. Although magnetic Venus is visiting your 5th House of Love and Money, she travels through some tricky territory today. You might even want to run and hide instead of facing the music. However, making a decision can’t be forced. Thankfully, your willingness to be patient ultimately brings the satisfaction you seek.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You are entering into a period of transformation, but first there is this eye of a needle for you to squeeze through. Unfortunately, it’s not large enough for you to take all your emotional baggage with you. Although it might not feel good to leave some of your attachments behind, lightening your load puts your most intimate relationships on more solid ground. Although this is a sobering time, keep in mind it’s preparing you for something wonderful just around the corner.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Today’s recipe entails mixing two tablespoons of unbridled optimism, a heaping tablespoon of caution and a tiny dash of unpleasant memories. Shake it all up until you are really unsure of which way to go. Then, spend some time pondering whether or not a current relationship is really worth the sacrifices you are making now. Even if you’re confused, your romantic life will emerge stronger in just a day or two if you’re willing to face the truth.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You take your commitment to love quite seriously today and want to share your perspective with anyone who will listen. But the reflective Moon in your busy 3rd House of Communication can create logistical cross-currents as everyone distracts you from your agenda. Don’t change directions now; just temporarily operate on blind faith. Your unwavering devotion should bring you closer to your goals sooner than you expect.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Relationships may feel strained today because it seems unlikely that you can find the peace and quiet that you seek. Perhaps money issues have crept back into your life and place a negative spin on your personal interactions. Unfortunately, there might not be a quick and easy way out of your current dilemma. Instead of running away, face the situation with confidence. Learning to trust your instincts takes practice, but there’s no better time to start than now.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Figuring out the best course of action is tricky and you may need to proceed before you make a decision. Naturally, moving forward before you are ready is neither fun nor easy, yet it can be a life-altering experience. Ironically, Saturn creates enough resistance to act like a catalyst, temporarily pulling you into uncharted emotional depths. Luckily, you have nothing to fear and everything to gain on this magical journey.
