The Moon spends the day in your sign, and others are following your lead.
You’re receiving mixed messages today, dear Taurus.

When Saturn is involved, criticism may be irritating but it can also lead you to firm up your work or ideas, so take the good things from the experience and discard the rest!

The Moon spends the day in your sector of daily routines, dear Scorpio, and while it’s not the most glamorous of house positions, you can feel particularly motivated to take care of details and get things done. You have help in so doing and with an open mind, you might discover a new method or idea for making life a little easier. A Mercury-Saturn opposition can put a damper on things, particularly related to money, ownership, and boundaries, but this, too, can lead to the discovery of new and improved methods of dealing with life. Relationship and financial decisions don’t come easily at the moment, and it may be better to conserve your energy than to argue a point or push an issue. Work on strengthening your position. Focus on the positive, as you may very well discover a brand new interest, product, or activity that excites you.
There can be some obstacles to face and frustrations to deal with today, dear Sagittarius, but once over that hump, you’re in a great position to move along a clearer path forward.

A Mercury-Saturn opposition today can point to the need to deal with blocks or challenges before moving forward, dear Capricorn. While handling niggly details can be frustrating, your workarounds can lead you to exciting discoveries and perhaps new and improved methods. With Saturn in your solar twelfth house, you could be dealing with worries about your effectiveness or performance. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, aim to slow yourself down and don’t be afraid to enlist some help. Taking a small break from a problem can help you get a new perspective and can ease the pressure. For some of you, there can be the need to help others competing with your desire to get your own things done. Do your best to meet your responsibilities so that you can move forward more freely.

Saturn opposes Mercury today, dear Aquarius, and you could feel that responsibilities to others are getting in the way of your favorite activities. However, don’t allow this to get you down. While remembering your obligations and knowing your limitations can be helpful and practical, harping on them won’t serve you well. If others seem a little unsympathetic or self-absorbed now, do your best to power through it by reaching a compromise and finding a balance between duty and pleasure. Do what you know is right for you and, eventually, others will come around. Helping you to stay flexible today is the Sun’s sextile to your ruler, Uranus. You can focus on creative play and expression, and you might enjoy some helpful or exciting conversations and progress in your projects and interests. Siblings, acquaintances, and love interests can be supportive or appreciative. People may be admiring your intellect, quirkiness, or sense of humor.
You’re working on strengthening and firming up your career or long-term goals and perhaps your reputation as well these days, dear Pisces. This is due to Saturn transiting the top of your solar chart (until December), and while this is perfect for you in the long run, there can be times when you feel a little too noticed, judged, or accountable, and possibly overworked or stressed. Mercury’s opposition to Saturn today can exacerbate some of these things as they can directly compete with your desire for more peace, quiet, comfort, and familiarity. Feeling the weight of your responsibilities makes unwinding a challenge. When it comes to others’ feedback, try to tune out the negative elements, if any, and focus on constructive ones. Another influence with you today engages your imagination and pulls up your inventive side. Drawing up new plans or using new methods to approach your business, family lie, money, or regular routines can be successful and a whole lot of fun today.
