Personal relationship dynamics are the primary source of tension today. Attempts to resolve conflict might only add fuel to the fire as the strategic Libra Moon joins up with warrior Mars. Unexpressed emotions are easily projected onto someone we love as vulnerable Venus opposes Mars. Nevertheless, we must be extra careful to stick to the facts because mischievous Mercury’s square to imaginative Neptune can have us chasing unrealistic dreams.

You may convince yourself that you’re on the right track, but you won’t get others to believe you now unless you actually are. However, sharing your current plans with your friends and associates is a smart move because they can see through any faulty reasoning. However, keep in mind that your cleverness could backfire if you’re too smooth in your delivery. Remember, it’s better to know the shortcomings of your new strategy sooner than later or you will end up wasting a lot of time. Initiating an honest dialogue leads to a more realistic approach.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You’re caught between your natural need to be straightforward and your current tendency to embellish the facts. You’re not purposefully trying to mislead anyone now; it’s just that you might get mixed up between what you want and what is real. There’s nothing wrong with sharing your dreams or taking a trip to Fantasyland as long as you tell everyone the truth. Your imagination is a garden where your best ideas can take root.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You are so persuasive now that others may rally to your support only to discover that your plans are not as practical as they sound. Your key planet Mercury awkwardly aligns with passionate Pluto and dreamy Neptune today, increasing the intensity of your words while decreasing your connection to the real world. Instead of having to untangle your story to get to the truth, it’s wiser now to just work with the facts. Save your song and dance for a rainy day.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Solving a problem today won’t bring you satisfaction if your solution is less than enchanting. The British poet Keats concurs and wrote, “Beauty is truth; truth beauty.” However, you could mislead yourself into thinking you know where you want to go when you are actually heading in the wrong direction. It’s time to put on a very practical pair of glasses. Ultimately, the best answers come to you now when you see things exactly as they are.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You might not realize how forceful your actions are today as you attempt to get what you want. Even if you mean well, your friends could easily misinterpret your aggressive behavior, setting the stage for a war of words. However, an argument is just a waste of energy now because you’re probably in closer agreement than you realize. Consciously softening your approach goes a long way toward making everyone happier in spite of the confusion. Listen more than you talk for the quickest resolution.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your energy may be stretched very thin now because a recent burst of enthusiasm prompted you to say yes to one too many projects. Don’t wait until you are mentally exhausted to make a change. Instead, exercise sensible restraint today because it’s more important to follow through on what you already started, even if you are tempted to run off in search of the next great thing. Part of your charm is your dependability, so honor your commitments before you do anything else.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You are engaged in a strange dance now between the old and the new. Your friends and coworkers may urge you to leave a worn-out habit behind, but you might not be ready to release your attachment to the past. Paradoxically, the more you analyze your current affairs, the more confused you become. Stop thinking long enough to act on what you are feeling instead of what others are telling you. The answer is simple: follow your heart and see where it leads.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
If you are lucky enough to have special people in your life that you can lean on, it may be disconcerting if they are not readily available today. You might feel as if you are being abandoned, but rest assured that isn’t what’s happening. In fact, your friends probably don’t even realize the intensity of your current process. By simply changing your attitude you could turn this moment into an opportunity to explore your dreams without any interference from others.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Clinging to a desired outcome probably won’t bring you much happiness today. You may come close to recapturing your lost sense of emotional security, but it slips away as you approach the magic moment of fulfillment. Instead of building your hopes up only to have them dashed, keep bringing your focus back to the moment at hand. It’s perfectly fine to allow cosmic opposites to exist simultaneously without taking sides now. Let things hang in the balance until your clarity returns.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
It’s as if you are at the movies, watching your fantasies unfold on the miniature silver screen inside of your head. Although each separate scenario represents a possible turn of events, you would rather be dealing with the hard cold facts and not dreamy illusions. Nevertheless, you can’t just stop your thoughts by decree. Instead of trying to force change, recognize that today’s fanciful excursions are an effective way to explore the potential of the present moment.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re being asked to forgo your rational approach now and adopt a more poetic style. Don’t worry about being productive today because you have more pressing work to do reconnecting with your soul. Even if you can’t explain your current spiritual yearnings to anyone else, rest assured that the right words will come later. But the magic won’t happen on its own; you must take the time to cultivate your dreams and exercise your creativity.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The good news is that you can still connect with your spiritual nature even if you are too busy to commune with others. It’s not about how much time you can take from your hectic schedule now; it’s more to do with how you use what’s available. Just setting aside a few minutes for meditation or relaxation might be enough to get you back in the groove. Finding your center empowers you to reach for the stars.
