Third Eye Rite

Third Eye Rite

 

Perform this neo-Pagan ritual to improve psychic powers three days before the moon is full, and preferably when it is in either the astrological sign of Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio.
Begin by brewing a strong magical tea made from yarrow or mugwort (herbs that stimulate the psychic senses) and then light thirteen purple colored votive candles to help attract psychic influences.
Drink the tea and then gaze fixedly into a magic mirror, crystal ball, or crystal pyramid as you chant thrice the following incantation:

I invoke thee, O Asariel
Archangel of Neptune
And ruler of clairvoyant powers.
I ask thee now to open my third eye
And show me the hidden light
Let me see the future.
Let me see the past.
Let me perceive the divine
Kingdoms of the unknown.
Let me understand the wisdom
Of the mighty universe.
So mote it be!

After chanting, relax, breathe slowly and concentrate on opening your Third Eye. Do not permit any negative thought to contaminate your mind. The Third Eye, an invisible chakra located in the middle of the forehead above the space between the eyebrows, is the human body’s highest source of power, supernormal sight and clairvoyant vision.

Daily Horoscopes for Friday, November 30th

We may find the day filled with dilemmas that cannot be easily resolved. Feelings of vulnerability encourage us to choose emotional security over risky behavior once the Moon enters self-protective Cancer at 8:54 am EST. Nevertheless, an erratic Venus-Uranus alignment creates an air of electric excitement, tempting us to throw caution to the wind. A surprising attraction creates innovative options, but trouble arises if we react too quickly.

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

There is an upbeat energy to the day, yet you might periodically sink into the cold waters of isolation. However, between these bouts of discouragement your enthusiasm level is high, so make the most of feeling optimistic while it lasts. Balance your need for emotional security with your desire to express unusual feelings without restraint. Avoiding extremes makes it easier to navigate the changing landscape.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might worry others now as you jump into the open seas of spontaneous actions. Luckily, you probably put on a life jacket when no one was looking. Accordingly, just make sure to reassure everyone you’re prepared for nearly anything that comes your way. You may not be carried too far off course, but you could get soaked today by the storms of experience. Use your common sense to help you keep your head above water.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You could easily set the world afire today with your clever thoughts and easy charm. Sometimes your willingness to adapt to the needs of others works well for you, but now it may not. Stay conscious of your intentions or you might get sidetracked by someone else’s agenda. Remember, it’s better to exert control early in the game than to start something that you cannot stop.

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

An emotional encounter could stir up buried feelings today with the Moon in your sign. Still, you’re not inclined to withdraw from interpersonal engagements; you have things to do and people to see. But your day may not go according to plan, so don’t try to adhere to your original schedule. Keep in mind that your willingness to adapt to the outer dynamics enables you to maintain inner stability in the midst of a storm.

 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might consider treading lightly now, yet whatever you do will likely have a lasting impact on others. Unconscious patterns can overtake your day and circumstances may grow out of control pretty quickly. Unwrap your buried feelings with determination, for they bring sorrow when they’re kept secret for too long. Sharing what’s in your heart seems like an act of courage, yet it’s also the most sensible thing to do today.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your plans might appear to be unfolding on schedule today, but ultimately it won’t be that simple. There is too much random energy floating around now and the intensity needs somewhere to go. But even with an element of surprise, current events won’t seem too disruptive. In fact, you’ll feel more alive than usual if you can welcome the unexpected and embrace the unknown.

 

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Grandiose thinking has driven you to make your plans bigger and bigger. Although you’re still psyched for whatever comes your way, consciously scaling back your goals now is a smart strategy. It’s amazing that you can be so practical even when you’re feeling highly strung. Ironically, it’s easier to express yourself in new and exciting ways if you keep your feet on solid ground.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Although you may not feel very stable today, you have a sense of inner peace from knowing that you are free enough from tradition to embrace your own idea of the future. It might seem as if you’re walking on a tightrope between the new and the old, but you make it look so easy now that others will respect the path you choose to travel. Take a few deep breaths, don’t look down and just keep inching forward.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Practical concerns require you to de-emphasize your craziest ideas, while still acknowledging that the wild dreams are not going away. You may talk about your fantasies today as you imagine your life unfolding, but it’s not wise to place too much stock in anything that lacks a solid foundation. Don’t waste your energy trying to reach an unrealistic goal. Moving ahead methodically creates the most progress now.

 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are wise to share your feelings today to prevent relationship dynamics from becoming imbalanced. If you are experiencing problems with a friend or partner it’s probably best now to roll with the punches instead of fighting back. Something is about to change, and it will alter the way others see you. Don’t assume that you know what’s going to happen. Just allow the situation to unfold without attempting to fix the outcome.

 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

There is a lot going on at work today and it may prove to be a bit too much to integrate all at once. Nevertheless, you still might enjoy the mental stimulation as magnetic Venus activates your key planet Uranus. If life feels overwhelming, remember that the intensity will not last more than a few days. You have the potential for great originality now as long as you don’t try to avoid the chaos.

 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Even if you would prefer to be invisible today, people will still notice you because they can’t help but see you as more exciting and upbeat than you actually feel. You’re running on intuitive energy and there’s no limit to what’s possible as long as you can imagine it. You will be happier if you pay less attention to what others think and concentrate more on the signs from your heart.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, November 14th

We might feel like it’s growing more difficult to justify our confidence today as retrograde Mercury falls back into the murky waters of mysterious Scorpio. The shadows hold their secrets as the Scorpio Sun forms an uneasy semisquare with dark Pluto. But all is not lost since the Moon shifts into inspirational Sagittarius at 5:51 am EST. We won’t be able to ignore our serious concerns now, but, thankfully, optimism triumphs over pessimism.

 

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You often want more independence, but you also need relationships to provide you with an opposing point of view. Now, however, you may be unsure of the validity of what someone tells you. Keep in mind that you could be missing an important piece of information today; don’t be so quick to defend your position instead of just listening to what others are saying first.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may feel dazed and confused today when you realize that your feet are not as firmly planted on the ground as you like. You can’t quite put all the pieces together into a sensible picture. Something is different and you might not be comfortable with the new emotional landscape. Don’t push yourself to change everything all at once; give yourself time to adjust to the shifting circumstances.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

The power of your positive thoughts can save you from a difficult situation today, yet it still might be hard to hold on to your dream. You may be concerned about taking a good idea too far now because your limits aren’t clear and it’s hard to know where to draw the line. Although you might be able to get away with a bit more than usual, nothing will be gained by projecting your reality on to anyone else

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s tempting to become too attached to your opinions today, which could actually get in the way of having an in-depth discussion. Nevertheless, don’t be so concerned with defending your ideas; just put them out there and then be open to the ensuing dialogue. Remember, your vulnerability is the key to a deeper and more satisfying connection

 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Doing the right thing today can quickly bail you out of a tricky situation at home, but you may also need to acknowledge your role in helping to create the mess. Even if others are involved, solving this dilemma is basically up to you. Make an extra effort to listen carefully and to say exactly what you mean when you speak.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although you probably don’t like being called picky, you have a propensity to be very analytical when you focus your mind on a sticky problem. However, the details won’t likely interest you now as you’re more enchanted with the spells of nebulous Neptune than you are with the minutiae. Instead of being logical today, immerse yourself into the touchy-feely part of life. You’ll be more content once you relax and let your imagination wander.

 

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You would like to transform your feelings into creative expressions now that Venus is visiting beautiful Libra. However, you may lack common sense today while expressing your artistic side. Balance, of course, is your specialty, so it’s up to you to find a way to get your feet back on the ground so you can make something of lasting value.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your unexpressed fears can be aroused by what you hear on the news today, yet it’s not really these concerns that bother you the most. You sense that your feelings are sinking into the shadows and you might be afraid that circumstances are working against you. But they are not, so put your suspicions to rest. Trust the glimmer of hope that arrives now, for it reveals the shining potential just ahead.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’s difficult to acknowledge your insecurities today, especially if you are unclear where your fantasies end and reality begins. You may try to steer clear of all situations that make you feel unsure of yourself, but avoidance only increases your confusion. Thankfully, circumstances should improve once your feelings are out in the open. However, real change takes time to manifest, so try not to expect too much too fast.

 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

There are no obvious resolutions to a career-oriented problem that continues to linger, even if you think you can see a way out today. The more you push for a quick fix to a current dilemma, the more complicated everything becomes. Don’t worry; trusting the universe is more critical now than having all the answers.

 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Avoid the temptation to fill in too many details on your calendar since planning ahead may not be as effective as you wish today. Taking time for spiritual rejuvenation is a smart idea and goes a long way to reducing your stress level. Have faith that your intuition will guide you to your proper destination at exactly the right moment.

Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, October 11

It’s challenging to settle down when we’re on a mission and the expressive Leo Moon dares us to act on our ideas. However, the Moon’s shift into critical Virgo at 3:23 pm EDT can make us dissatisfied with anything less than perfection. We may even grow anxious when we face reality instead of our idealistic dreams. Thankfully, the Virgo Moon also gives us the ability to apply sound logic in practical ways as we progress toward our goals.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

There’s not much of an opportunity to rest today if you left too many tasks undone. Don’t be overly concerned; just get busy with your chores. Even if you don’t have any pressing obligations, you might still be too serious to enjoy yourself. Keep in mind that you will have plenty of time to play later on. The sooner you get started with what’s on your plate, the more likely you are to finish.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Although you’re very methodical in seeking pleasure now, you may need to wait until later to get what you want. It helps to set a goal early in the day and then doggedly pursue your destination. Even if others think that you would be happier doing something else, you can still derive sweet satisfaction from staying focused on what you consider most important.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Life shouldn’t be so difficult, but you cannot avoid feeling annoyed if you’re blocked from pursuing your dreams today. Your natural tendency is to scatter your ideas like Johnny Appleseed; however, it’s more effective now to keep them to yourself until you know you have found the most fertile ground. Then, take your time to share your thoughts in detail and carefully nurture them until they reach fruition

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You could be overly protective of those you love as you attempt to balance your concerns with their needs. You might not even notice that you have overstepped your role. Although you want to initiate action for someone else’s benefit, consider that your interference may not be in their interest. Sometimes a temporary setback or emotional hurt is the best teacher. Ease up on the reins and let others take more responsibility for themselves.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your life may already be in flux because a significant cycle is reaching a turning point. You want to narrow your focus now but you’re receiving mixed signals from the cosmos. Instead of fearfully closing down your mind, think about whatever makes you happy. You don’t have to do anything about your fantasies today if you commit to executing your new plan tomorrow.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your anticipation level is high, but you may not be confident enough to fully trust your impulses today. Instead of taking a risk, play it more conservatively for now. After all, you aren’t interested in an easy come, easy go solution. Demonstrate your wisdom by building on your previous accomplishments while still progressing on your long-term goals.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Although you’re eager to balance work and play, enjoying yourself can be challenging today until you complete your unfinished business. Free-floating anxiety may plague you now, especially if you know that you are running out of time. Fortunately, this impending deadline is more flexible than you think, so don’t waste your energy panicking; just continue doing the best you can.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your friends may be making too many demands on your time these days. They might not think twice before asking you for what they want, even if their neediness poses an inconvenience. It’s hard to tell if they are aware of the impact of their behavior. However, your loyalty is so strong that if a close friend requests your help, you will be there. Keep in mind that setting healthy boundaries won’t detract from supporting those you love.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You’re more concerned now about what others think, prompting you to do what is right in the social sphere today. However, you’re not insecure with your judgment if it differs from the crowd. It’s just that you really want to be a team player and will sacrifice some of your needs for the good of the family, group, or community. Good intentions bring positive results.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be a bit ornery today, especially if an acquaintance is pushing your buttons. You’re short on patience, especially when it comes to situations that aren’t your immediate concern. You’re not willing to waste your time on trivial matters just because someone else does. But don’t be too harsh when judging others; paying attention to social etiquette now will serve you well.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are ready to jump to conclusions now, unless you consciously slow down your mental process. But there’s a trick to making this work; you don’t have to change the speed of your thinking. Instead, just increase the time between a thought and the moment you respond. You’ll be surprised at the difference you can make if you just count to ten before saying anything.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Someone might obstinately stand in the way of your satisfaction today as the Virgo Moon in your 7th House of Partners squares feisty Mars. Instead of glossing over a potential problem, find the courage to talk about it in a nonthreatening manner. Nearly any complex issue is easier to resolve once you commit to handle it together, but it takes two willing participants to make a relationship work.

Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, Jan. 8th

Exciting interactions complicate the day as communicator Mercury takes center stage. The messenger planet’s shift into earthy Capricorn helps us be more practical, but its fluid trine to philosophical Jupiter expands our ideas past the normal constraints of reality. Mercury’s unstable square with shocking Uranus provokes radical honesty, whatever the cost. However, the Moon’s visit to cautious Cancer makes us wary about revealing everything.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re trying to catch up on chores and your unrestrained optimism tempts you to take on more work than you can possibly finish. Unfortunately, your exuberance may be stymied if you reach too far. Instead of believing that you need to convert every intellectual breakthrough into tangible results, just allow your thoughts to rise and fall like the tides. Visualize yourself standing on the shores of awareness, but remember that you don’t have to capture every individual wave to make your mark.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You feel as if you’re waiting for something big to happen, yet it remains out of reach. You want to settle down, but your restlessness lingers until you accept that the resistance comes from your own attitude. Fortunately, when you begin to let go of control, the tension begins to disperse. Forget about adjusting specific details of your day; instead consider changing your long-term goals. Ironically, aiming your attention at the distant horizon has a positive impact on the present moment.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

It’s challenging to follow through on anything that you start now, but you won’t likely be bothered about it for too long. You forget about what you were doing as soon as you get another idea and become immersed in the next activity. Your behavior might be upsetting to others today, yet you’ll probably continue scattering your energy until you can no longer keep up with everything. Ultimately, obtaining closure on unfinished business improves your reputation and raises your confidence.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Although you may wish things were simpler today, it feels as if you built your relationships on shifting sands. Thankfully, you might be able to change the energy faster than you thought possible by just telling the truth. Don’t hold back; even if your life is turned upside down for a while, it will settle back on the solid foundation that you seek. Have the courage to throw caution to the wind when it comes to following your heart.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You think you know what you want today, but the circumstances keep changing. Just as you become comfortable with one perspective, everything shifts and you need to readjust your expectations. Your willingness to be flexible could prevent a serious headache. Pay constant attention to the interpersonal dynamics and respond with your heart, not your head. Too much thinking now can get in the way of your best interests.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your key planet Mercury is totally buzzing today, yet it may be too much for you to easily integrate, especially if you believe you already have the answers. The more rigid you are in your thinking, the louder the static is from electrical Uranus. But your readiness for change empowers you to explore the outer limits of your imagination. However, remember that you don’t have to push your thought process over the edge; your evolving perspective is all you need.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your mind is operating at an incredibly high speed today, yet you’re wondering if you’re capable of keeping it up throughout the entire day. You might assume that things will eventually slow down, but other people keep introducing more complications. The hectic pace is fun at first, but might become more exhausting as the day goes on. Don’t try to do everything all at once. Extending your thinking into the future can help you remain calmer in the present.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are possessed with self-confidence today, especially if someone you trust is expressing his or her approval of your performance. Although unpredictable Uranus can set off a strike of lighting that upsets your current routine, lucky Jupiter is standing by with cosmic assistance. As long as you’re willing to change your mind quickly, you should be able to make good use of the new information that comes to you now. Letting go of old assumptions clears the way for an exciting new direction.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your key planet Jupiter encourages you to take on more than you would on another day. Fortunately, you’re able to accomplish so much today that others might think you are a superhero. However, there’s a price to pay for your action-packed day. So many events are interrelated now that one unexpected blip can bring down the entire house of cards. But even a crisis or two won’t stop you if you’re open to starting over again and shifting your course as needed.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may think that everything is going to calm down, but you probably won’t have time to catch your breath for a couple of days. You’re being called back into action today and you must show up ready to work or you might lose valuable ground. Fortunately, mental Mercury’s shift into your ambitious sign indicates that you’re up for the task. Accept the current challenges with a fierce determination and get started immediately; you don’t have any time to waste.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Although your thoughts are tied to your future, today’s tenacious Cancer Moon reveals your desire to stay exactly where you are now. Unfortunately, you must let go of the past as electric Uranus zaps you out of your nostalgic fantasies. Overcome your fears and face the brave new world that’s right around the next corner. You might not be able to see what’s coming, but if you’re willing to take a calculated risk the rewards will follow.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You don’t have to convince anyone that your plan is the right one today; you only need to communicate with honesty and integrity. There are no correct or incorrect points of view now, just differing ones. Even if your opinions are unconventional, others will respect you for clearly stating exactly where you stand. Nevertheless, you will appear more sincere if you are also sensitive to other people’s positions. Having an open mind is the key to making the best choices.

Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 24

The Moon swims into watery Cancer at 6:30 am EDT, reminding us of the power of our feelings. The Moon is at home in Cancer, yet today our emotions can be so overwhelming that we may not be able to express them in words. Harsh lunar aspects make us susceptible to mood changes that others can easily perceive. Meanwhile, a quincunx from likeable Venus to radical Uranus encourages us to try new things, even if we’re not satisfied with the outcome.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may be so aware of your shortcomings today that your self-doubt negatively impacts your ability to have fun. In fact, you might not even be interested in joining the party now. Don’t waste time worrying about anyone else’s judgments. Just be as clear as possible about your boundaries when you tell your friends that you would rather stay home and have some quiet time by yourself. Nurturing yourself first will enable you to be more considerate of others later.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You have something important to do at work today, but you don’t necessarily want everyone to know about it. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to make enough time because you’re probably busier than you prefer, and you won’t be able to change your schedule until you meet your obligations. Others are expecting a lot from you, so do the best you can to deliver what you promised.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You wish that your emotions would settle down, but it’s too soon to breathe a sigh of relief because there’s still a bit of rough water for you to swim through. You need to make sure that you put your priorities straight now and communicate your needs to those around you. You might not receive the support you want right away, but your gentle persistence should pay off by the weekend after Mercury turns direct. Have patience; there are better days ahead.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You sea-dwelling Crabs are exceptionally sensitive to the lunar cycles, and you have a lot on your mind now as the Moon visits your self-protective sign. You might feel overly vulnerable today because it appears that others know something about you that you thought was a secret. Nevertheless, you can’t just hide inside your shell once you’ve already been seen. Thankfully, those who love you won’t be deterred by your resistance.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You could have a bit of repair work to do in a personal relationship, but unfortunately, knowing what went wrong is not the same thing as being able to fix it. Thankfully, your good intentions can go a long way today. Don’t be hard on yourself if you can’t meet someone else’s expectations. You aren’t responsible for how others feel; just stay focused on love, without needing to know where it will take you.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may be spending a lot of time rethinking your goals and trying to figure out a way to create the life of your dreams. Although you’re growing tired of mentally living in the future, nostalgia isn’t healthy now either. Stop worrying about yesterday and tomorrow; methodically keep bringing your focus back to the here-and-now. You’ll be happier once you commit to staying in the present moment.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You want to maintain your objectivity today while other people attempt to tug on your heartstrings and activate your emotional attachments. Rationally, you know it’s wise to avoid intimate interactions now that could reveal your vulnerability. However, your feelings are not ruled by your logic, so you might as well just give yourself permission to be human and experience the pleasure and pain of irrational passion.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You can see far into the distance now that the Moon is visiting your 9th House of Faraway Places. Your view of the future is vastly different from what you expected because everything is so much clearer now. But this can be tricky, for it’s not about anything that’s out there. Your inner world is currently more accessible to you, allowing you an additional level of clarity. Just remember that you’re the creator of your fantasies, and it’s still up to you to make them come true.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You aren’t as comfortable today as the Moon wades through your emotionally complex 8th house. You might choose to engage in a competitive sport, participate in exciting outdoor activities or simply head out on an adventure to parts unknown. Nevertheless, you have a much different kind of exciting drama waiting for you when you explore the feelings you want to share with someone special. Don’t let your fears prevent you from discovering the treasures of love.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A good friend might need your assistance today — or, at least, that is how it appears. But you aren’t one to go rescuing an underdog unless you can clearly rationalize what you are doing. However, you are far from being cold-hearted; it’s just that your practicality can now stand in the way of a kinder and gentler type of love, if you let it. Sometimes there are intangible rewards for helping others that are well worth your altruistic efforts.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s hard to feel at ease today because it seems as if someone is blocking your efforts. Your reaction has nothing to do with paranoia; it’s just that you prefer avoiding unnecessary disappointment and pain that might follow you around if you lower your protective walls. Don’t do anything that could possibly add to your stress. Just pay close attention to where your heart leads you now.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You would be wise to temporarily set aside your responsibilities for a bit today, even if they continue to pile up in your absence. Your psychic powers are quite strong now, enabling you to know what others want, even if nothing is spoken out loud. Put your extraordinary abilities to work by helping someone who can benefit from your compassionate assistance.

New Moon Report for Aug. 23 – Sun in Virgo

Sun in Virgo

Tuesday, August 23, 4:21 am PDT, 7:21 am EDT

Virgo is a sign of efficiency that’s more interested in getting the job done right than looking good or playing to the crowd. We can grow more conscious of ways to take care of our bodies and our obligations with less wasted time and effort. This sign’s penchant for perfectionism can lead to unreasonable expectations. Yet the purpose of setting high standards is to inspire us to work toward them and respect the progress we’re making even if there’s still a long way to go.

Basic Overview of August Horoscopes 2011

August Horoscope 2011

by Jeff Jawer
 

Make the Most of Mercury Retrograde

The key astrological event of August is Mercury’s retrograde cycle from August 2-26. This backward turn of the communication planet happens three times a year, and is well known for complicating conversations, muddling messages, blurring details, and triggering technical difficulties and travel troubles. While some astrologers recommend avoiding starting new projects or signing contracts during this period, it’s often impossible to do so. Just make sure to double-check data and confirm details carefully to limit the risk of making mistakes. In fact, Mercury retrograde can be very useful for completing unfinished business or returning to an old creative interest.

The contrasting sign positions of astrology’s lovers — Venus and Mars — are a complicating factor in relationships this month. Alluring Venus in bold Leo until August 21 favors splashy displays of affection and romantic drama. Hearts can open wide in expressive displays of generosity and adoration. There is a narcissistic side to this transit, though — some egos may overinflate as individuals demand more attention and approval than usual. The fun of this playful combination is countered by passionate Mars’ move into super-sensitive and self-protective Cancer on August 3. Instead of taking initiative with confidence, this transit evokes a more careful and timid approach to partnerships. Venus in Leo needs heroes, yet warrior Mars is more into playing it safe in cuddly Cancer. Venus’ shift into pragmatic Virgo on the August 21 brings these two planets into a more cohesive relationship, as reason and security take precedence over big displays of affection.

The bold and outgoing qualities of fiery Leo are fueled by the Sun’s presence in this grandiose sign. Chests may expand with self-importance, even as macho Mars is wearing Cancer’s apron. Leo is wonderful when confident individuals express it joyously. However, insecurity during Leo days often draws unpleasant pictures of bullies and showoffs whose external displays of self-importance are not matched by the quality of their work or by generous spirits. The Sun’s entry into earthy Virgo on August 23 tones down brash behavior as the focus shifts to taking care of business rather than putting on a show.

The Leonine need to be the center of attention is highlighted with a lunar opposition from egalitarian Aquarius on August 13. This Full Moon contrasts personal authority (Leo) with collective concerns (Aquarius). Cool Aquarius can put a chill on overheated romance and hyper-inflated egos. Bossy people may be put down by clever comments, but the purpose of this lunation is not to embarrass anyone. It is meant to serve as a reminder that even the greatest among us requires a community of friends, fans and supporters. We can sometimes feel pulled apart by the lunar opposition to the Sun during a Full Moon. Yet its message is to make us aware of the spectrum of responses available to all of us so that we can stretch our behavioral vocabulary. Learning when to take the lead and be a star (Leo) and when to be a cooperative member of the chorus (Aquarius) teaches us to play a variety of roles.

Mercury’s forward turn on August 26 and the New Moon in analytical Virgo on August 28 complete the transition from Leo’s fiery explorations of self-expression to more modest and detail-oriented ways of operating. The upside of Virgo is the refinement of skills and the ability to apply them with purpose and precision. Its downside is being overly critical. Constructive criticism that provides useful solutions to address flaws is an excellent way to make the most of this productive and practical sign.

Your Daily Horoscopes for July 27th

We may feel a heightened sense of urgency today as the dramatic Leo Sun harmoniously trines electric Uranus. Hidden tensions suddenly come to the surface, which can upset the status quo. However, we are also excited about the possible changes and may even take unnecessary risks to make something happen. The flighty Gemini Moon joins spontaneous Mars midday to raise the stakes, but things calm down when the Moon enters quiet Cancer at 9:11 pm EDT.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are in your element today as the Sun in your 5th House of Fun and Games connects with brilliant Uranus in your sign. Instead of doing things in a familiar manner, you are motivated to try something new. Your mind is buzzing with exciting ideas now, and you are itching to see how they translate into the real world. Obviously, you would like to succeed, but you’ll be quite satisfied if a good time is had by all.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You have a lot of details to handle today, but you’ll probably figure out a way to do something more fun instead. For example, rather than finishing a project you might channel your creativity toward planning an escape from work. Ironically, the craziest ideas are the ones you’ll most likely get away with now, so don’t be afraid to step outside of the box.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may get a chance to do something that is not part of your regular routine today, but it will probably turn out differently than you think. Perhaps you are invited to attend a social event, only to discover that your assumptions about those in attendance need to be revised. Fortunately, you are able to shift gears easily and adapt to unusual circumstances. You may be pleasantly surprised as long as you remain open to the unexpected.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You’re not thrilled about being thrust into the public eye today, but it’s probably a good idea to hide your annoyance. Overcoming your resistance enables you to surprise others with your stellar performance. However, playing your part can bring recognition by your peers or even a raise in pay, so don’t say no just because the thought of being on stage makes you feel uncomfortable.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

This can be a most memorable day for you because you can get away with being as weird as you want. Your need to do something totally outrageous may reach a point of no return today, provoking you to take sudden action. But rather than being sensitive to other people’s needs, maverick Uranus connects with the Sun in your sign, encouraging you to do as you wish. Nevertheless, there is still an unspoken boundary. Don’t go too far over the edge now or you’ll have to spend time later cleaning up the mess you make.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have something that you need to do at work today and you won’t let someone get in your way without putting up a fight. Fortunately, you can emerge as the winner if you are honest about your intentions and don’t scatter your energy. Don’t think twice about standing up for yourself, even if you would rather avoid conflict. Hopefully, the skirmish will be over quickly and you’ll be able to get on with your job once the air is cleared.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Unconventional friends can inspire you today because you view them as your “Get out of Jail Free” card. You may feel restrained by the current social circumstances, making it difficult for you to escape the boredom of the day. However, it’s easier to step out of the box when you’re hanging out with people who are innovative, radical and eccentric. Nevertheless, it’s a mistake to expect someone else to make your move for you; take a chance and let your freak flag fly.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You can be the hero who saves the day if you are willing to move beyond your fears and share your unorthodox solution to a problem at work. Although you might expect others to reject your idea because it’s so wacky, they may quickly approve because they like how unusual it is. Don’t hold your punches now; state your case as clearly as possible and then let go of your attachment to the outcome. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’s time to resurrect your dreams of taking a holiday to an exotic destination now that the Sun is visiting your 9th House of Travel. Its easy trine to irrepressible Uranus in your 5th House of Play turns an unrealistic fantasy into a reachable goal. You don’t need to fill in all the details yet; just declare your intentions and start making plans now. Before you know it you’ll be on your way.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may need to deal with a few surprises in your personal life now, but ultimately everything should turn out just fine. Your need for stability on the home front runs up against your desire for more personal freedom. Normally, you aren’t thrilled by the idea of unexpected change; however, today you are relieved when the stuck energy is finally released. Don’t hold on to old fears because they will only stand in the way of your potential happiness.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your key planet Uranus forms a superconductive trine with the Sun in your 7th House of Partnerships today, electrifying your communication. You have an opportunity to express yourself in a way that might reveal a part of you that you have been hiding. Fortunately, a relationship can be strengthened now when you take a risk and share what’s in your heart, even if your feelings are radical. Don’t hold back; this is a chance for you to be uniquely you.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

An exciting breakthrough at work is possible today and it could ultimately affect your finances in a positive way. You have an excess of innovative ideas now that you can bring to the job. But don’t waste time making plans or telling others what you intend to do. Your intuitive channels are wide open, so get busy and follow your instincts.

Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, July 12th

We may be caught between two opposing cosmic messages today as the outgoing Sagittarius Moon lifts our spirits and widens our horizons. Her harmonious aspects to chatty Mercury and active Mars help us to communicate clearly while encouraging energetic interactions with others. However, affectionate Venus, already hesitant in timid Cancer, forms a stressful square with somber Saturn. Instead of turning on the charm, we may seek isolation instead.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may grow tired of encouraging other people’s ideas, especially if they don’t even seem to listen to yours. You want to maintain a positive attitude, but could withdraw your support if your irritation turns to resentment. Be careful how you express your frustration. Leaving close friends and co-workers to fend for themselves will only increase ill will. There’s no need to overreact; expressing your concerns is healthy, but you don’t have to alienate others in the process.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

An unresolved issue with a workmate needs to be addressed as your key planet Venus harshly squares authoritative Saturn. You understand the importance of sharing your feelings now, but fear the negative consequences of being completely honest. Nevertheless, you must say what’s on your mind or people will draw incorrect conclusions because they lack the basic facts. Being kind to others will help you move through a conflict gracefully.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may go through a day or two of self-doubt as Venus in your 2nd House of Self-Worth squares hard-nosed Saturn. Take time to consider what is most important to you, but don’t minimize the needs of others. Even if you aren’t happy enough to dance in the streets, don’t take it out on those nearby. Simply do what you must to make yourself more comfortable and then get busy with what must be done. Your life will quickly improve on its own if you don’t focus solely on what’s wrong.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Tough Saturn squares sweet Venus in your sensitive sign, signifying changes in your personal life. You are at the end of a cycle, but not ready yet to begin the next one. You might not be able to see the opportunities that are coming your way, but they are just around the corner. Don’t panic and try to make something happen, but don’t give up prematurely, either. Just accept that you still need time to process recent events before jumping ahead into something new.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might be anxious today, even if you cannot logically determine the source of your feelings. There could be specific issues that you’re dealing with, but your worry might be out of proportion with what’s actually happening now. Nevertheless, it’s not wise to avoid your feelings; denial only strengthens them. Instead, pay careful attention to all physical symptoms without trying to control your sensations. Resistance is futile, so let your emotions ripple through the present moment. Tomorrow will be a brand new day.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

In theory, you want to be included in a larger group of friends or associates, but you’re more comfortable being an outsider today. You might think that everyone disagrees with you now, and you may feel excluded even if you don’t voice your opinions. Ironically, you will be more accepted if you let your peers know exactly where you stand. No one can fault you for speaking from the heart.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your ruling planet Venus, now visiting your 10th House of Career, provokes feelings of loneliness as she squares judgmental Saturn. Emotional stress that has been pressurizing for a while could suddenly explode and turn your professional life upside down. Instead of worrying about the unknown, embrace the upcoming shift. Even if you face a temporary setback, the lessons you learn today can help to reestablish equilibrium in your life.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The recent emphasis on your 9th House of Higher Truth enables you to see far into your own future. However, you might not be pleased with where your current path is now leading. But instead of allowing yourself to grow discouraged, concentrate on the possibilities ahead. Don’t alter your present course, even if you’re feeling as if something has gone awry. Today’s malaise will pass, leaving you with a clearer sense of what to do tomorrow.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are a champ at making your life look fabulous, yet today you might be hurting deep inside where others won’t notice. You may even be uncharacteristically self-critical because your shortcomings are so apparent to you now. You will feel better if you share your new realizations with someone who will give you honest feedback. However, it’s not wise to blab about your secrets to everyone, so choose your confidants carefully before you entrust them with your heart.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may feel lonely today as loving Venus in your 7th House of Others squares your key planet, Saturn the Taskmaster. You don’t like it when someone comes down hard on you or makes unreasonable demands. However, logic can’t help you decide how to respond now; trust your instincts, instead. If your gut tells you no, then don’t do it. On the other hand, if you think you should get involved, give it one hundred percent, even if you must set aside a previous commitment.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your regular routine may feel oppressive today, yet there’s no simple escape route. Nevertheless, it’s still a smart idea to think about what you are doing and why you continue to do it. Naturally, breaking out of a rut sounds good, but maintaining the status quo feels much safer now. Don’t make any changes until you are ready. Your motivation needs to come from within to have a significant impact.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Others may think that they understand you well enough to give you advice; however, their false assumptions only serve to alienate you. Their expectations can be quite unrealistic, yet these unfair judgments hold power over you now. Don’t make any long-term decisions today, for your current emotional disconnection is warping your perspective. Be patient; a more positive outlook will return in a day or two.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, July 8th

The socially astute Libra Moon encourages us to look before we leap. Nevertheless, we’re so eager to have the thrill of a memorable experience that we may forget to consider the feelings of someone we love. Meanwhile, gentle Venus in tender Cancer opposes domineering Pluto in stern Capricorn, engaging us in a deep emotional conflict that can alter our feelings. This intense combination can result in a power struggle unless we relinquish control.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you are eager to love, you may be too quick to fix whatever is wrong today. Your desire to make everything okay can lead you to miss the best part of a relationship. Rather than immediately taking control, it’s healthier to open your heart as wide as you can and simply feel what’s happening — without doing anything at all. Naturally, you want to show others that you care, but you could create more intimacy now by revealing your vulnerability.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

It’s not easy for you to share your feelings today, since your needs could get lost in all the busyness of the day if you don’t make time to connect with someone at work. Keep in mind that the most important communication probably won’t be written or spoken. Your true message will emanate lovingly from your heart without any expectations. If you can avoid making demands on others, they will be more likely to give you their love and appreciation on their own accord.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Ironically, the smartest way to acknowledge the significance of a current relationship today is to withdraw a little to give the other person some space. This is not the best day to present your demands or to assume that you know what’s ahead. Steer clear of any unnecessary confrontations over who is the boss. Just accept others for who they are and be secure in your own position. Save the heavy processing for another day when the atmosphere is more conducive to constructive dialogue.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Sexy Venus in your sign naturally amplifies your desires, but her opposition to passionate Pluto makes it more difficult to share your feelings. You might believe that you’re trapped and that you won’t be able to find a path to satisfaction. However, this is not the time to give up. Take a risk and share your needs with someone you trust, but don’t blame anyone else for your current predicament. Obstacles won’t seem so overwhelming if you speak directly from your heart and take full responsibility for your emotions.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may appear bright and cheery to others, yet there could be a challenging story that’s hiding behind your friendly smile. You think that you’re doing the right thing by sharing positive vibes, rather than spreading discouragement or anger. However, you pay a price for withholding what’s important to you, and your suppressed negativity might just find a way to circle around and kick you from behind. Seek healthy ways to express your truth, so you can shine even brighter than before.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You don’t like feeling coerced to express a certain point of view today. Your impulse probably isn’t to fight back, but to resist passively by keeping your thoughts to yourself. Be careful; if you bend under pressure and act in a politically expedient manner, you’ll feel the weight of the circumstances lean on you harder. But you can be strong now and support those who need it, while still going on the record with your own point of view.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your sense of power is not derived from anything you do today; actually, it’s more dependent on what you don’t do. You can make your point most effectively now by withdrawing your support from someone and simply focusing your efforts somewhere else. An open confrontation won’t bring resolution, so avoid going to emotional extremes until you can regain your objectivity.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may be feeling pressured by an emotional conflict that has been hovering dangerously at the edge of eruption. But don’t get hooked by someone else’s issues. Remember that your jealousy or envy is likely based on your habitual insecurities and fears. You can overcome the immediate threat by being grateful for the abundance of blessings in your life, instead of worrying that there’s not enough for you to get what you want.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might stay in perpetual motion today to avoid an uncomfortable issue. But it’s not a sensible strategy to distract yourself so you don’t have to admit that something is out of balance in your life. You would be wise to take a bit of quiet time to reconnect with your inner world, even if your schedule is very busy. Once you get in touch with yourself, share your feelings with someone you trust. Your disclosure may be exactly the catalyst you need now to break out of a rut.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A close relationship can be a source of worry today, especially if the balance of power isn’t just right. You don’t want to be controlled by someone else’s agenda. Even if you’re the one who is making the rules, a lack of equality can destabilize a partnership. Don’t make assumptions now about who is in charge; talking it out can help to bring things back into harmony.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may see the weekend ahead as a chance to retreat. But your spiritual quest might need to be put on hold as you grapple with the complexity of a relationship that has grown overly intense. Nevertheless, allowing for some cooling off time could be wiser than pushing your way into an emotional mess that won’t be easy to manage. But this dilemma is not about avoiding crucial issues; rather, it’s all about finding your own center.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Strong passions may blast up to the surface, transforming a casual interaction into an intense emotional battlefield. Or, your profound feelings could lure you into an intricate dance with someone you love. In either case, this isn’t a lighthearted time. Fortunately, you can assure a more positive outcome for everyone involved by changing the rules of the game and making it non-competitive.

General Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 4th

There’s a strange mix of tradition and exploration in relationships this week. Loving Venus is now in conventional Cancer, spurring desire for security. Yet her tense aspects with experimental Uranus and extreme Pluto make it hard to feel safe, as rapidly changing feelings and intense emotions bring drama to our personal lives.

 

 
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Moon in your relationship houses pushes partnership issues into the spotlight this weekend. Friday evening can start on emotionally shaky ground and end up feeling like a party. But you don’t get to play and run this time because the Scorpio Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy attracts complex partners who may want more than you’re willing to give. Being honest about your limitations is the best policy right from the start.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You could have a hard time this weekend finding the simplicity and comfort you enjoy so much. The Moon is traveling through the deep waters of Scorpio, taking relationships to exciting but dangerous territory. Feelings may be exposed that alter the nature of a partnership, but the emotional journey can help you recognize what you really need in order to find happiness with another person.

 

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your easy breezy attitude is usually very appealing to others, but it isn’t the secret sauce to heat up your love life this weekend. Being willing to share your fears may not sound sexy, but if your vulnerability is sincere, it could strengthen an ongoing relationship or help you start a new one. There’s no need to rush; take your time to process the powerful feelings that are emerging now and let things unfold naturally.

 

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Passion is pulling you very strongly this weekend. Magnetic Venus opposes potent Pluto on Friday and the erotic Scorpio Moon is activating your 5th House of Romance. Your powers of seduction are higher than usual so there’s no need to wait for someone else to make the first move. Coming on strong and expressing your desires may feel uncomfortable at first, but others find your newfound assertiveness to be refreshingly sexy.

 

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

This weekend isn’t the best time to be brassy and sassy. It’s much more interesting (and real) to allow your vulnerability to rise to the surface. Self-pity and complaining aren’t attractive, but a truthful expression of your needs and concerns can earn you trust. Investing emotionally in a meaningful connection will be more rewarding now than keeping things light.

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The purpose of using your impeccable logic this weekend is to discuss powerful emotional issues, instead of inventing ways to avoid them in your mind. You can untie knots of misunderstanding when you’re willing to talk about delicate matters without getting bogged down in blame or guilt. Seeking to solve problems now by engaging in constructive dialogue is healthier than ignoring the situation any longer.

 

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may feel disappointed in a person close to you on Friday as your key planet Venus is opposed by suspicious Pluto. Yet this can be a perfect opportunity to dig in to an issue that you’ve been previously unwilling to face. Confronting the truth is a courageous act that will either heal the relationship or give you the strength to help you pursue love with someone else.

 

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon traveling through your sign this weekend stirs up your hunger for intimacy. It’s still not unreasonable to be afraid of going after who and what you want, but doing nothing is even more dangerous now. Silence will isolate you, while speaking up, even if it’s a struggle, can clear the air and restore trust or convince you that it’s time to move on.

 

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your easygoing and friendly nature is usually delightful and garners plenty of positive attention. But the Moon is hanging out in your secretive 12th House this weekend, which requires a more subtle approach to self-expression. Quiet conversations in out-of-the-way places will do more for your love life now than partying hardy and playing hard.

 

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Complicated friends and passionate pals play active roles in your personal life this weekend. The Moon lighting up your 11th House of Groups is ideal for going out with a gang of people. Yet no matter how exciting things get, knowing when to keep silent might be more important than anything you say. Choose your words and companions carefully now so things don’t get messy later on.

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The freedom and independence you normally crave could be hard to come by this weekend. The Moon enters intense Scorpio late on Friday, which can bring out the clingy sides of people. Don’t allow yourself to be cornered or manipulated by anyone, but if you desire intimacy, you may have to lose yourself in the mysterious world of emotions to find it.

 

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It’s amazing how you can use your powers of persuasion with such subtlety this weekend. You have a very good chance of getting your way without anyone feeling like you’re tricking them. You don’t even have to explain your motives unless you want to now. Leaving an air of mystery around you only makes you more captivating to others.

Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, July 2

The Sun in emotional Cancer is restrained today by a stressful square to stoic Saturn, requiring us to withhold our feelings. Ironically, chatty Mercury enters boisterous Leo, encouraging expressive communication. But Mercury aligns with spacey Neptune, indicating that our words may not tell the whole story. Additionally, the Moon’s shift into fiery Leo at 5:42 pm EDT motivates us to be outgoing, but playful actions might actually hide our fears.
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Resentment can grow out of frustration if you can’t figure out how to bring strong feelings out into the open. Your regular channels of communication may be blocked today, leading you to internalize your unexpressed feelings. But your inability to say what’s on your mind has less to do with external circumstances than with your need to process a lesson that you have been trying to avoid. The obstacles won’t seem so overwhelming if you are willing to face the truth.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Now that your life seems to be moving in a positive direction again, you aren’t eager to have to slow down for any reason. Nevertheless, easing off the gas pedal is a smart idea because you could lose control if you’re taking the curves too fast. Although you might try to keep up with all your current projects, circumstances could dictate otherwise. Be wise and practice some self-discipline before things get out of hand.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You cannot waste energy and get away with it today because you are under pressure to get a lot accomplished and there’s very little margin for error. You don’t have much of a choice; you must pay attention to taskmaster Saturn as it gives you a stern reality check. However, just listening to the message is not enough. Narrow your concentration so you can focus on the most critical matters first.

 
Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may retreat from a social situation today because someone hurts your feelings, even if it’s unintentional. You could take a setback so seriously that you just want to stay home and be by yourself. However, withdrawing is not the most intelligent strategy now. Instead of concentrating on your disappointment, figure out how to improve your productivity. If you are accomplishing what you set out to do, you’re less likely to have time to be bothered by the inconsiderate actions of others.

 
Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you may be the first one to say you want to have fun, it’s not that easy to set aside your responsibilities in favor of pleasure. Usually, you can easily discuss the alternative plans before determining the best way to handle the current temptations. However, your tendency is to keep your misgivings secret today. Push up against your resistance and take a risk. Others won’t judge you so quickly if you share what’s on your mind with them.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are determined to maintain your integrity now by doing exactly what you promise, but distractions and obstructions continue to alter your course. You may be excited to head in an unknown direction, but you are on a mission and every setback brings more frustration. You can gain a lot of strength by staying on your spiritual path, rather than wandering around aimlessly. Remember, you cannot reach your destination if you stop to explore every alternative along the way.

 
Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s not apparent where so much resistance is coming from now, but you could bump into stone walls no matter which way you turn. Even your friends that are normally helpful seem to be blocking your way today. Thankfully, you have a secret weapon that you can use to your advantage: your ability to wait. Patience, combined with unflappable determination, is your ticket through this difficult obstacle course.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are following a path that you have been down before. However, you discover that even paved highways have fallen into decay and are difficult to traverse. No matter that you were previously moving along smoothly, now every step is a small victory and you need to work hard to gain more ground. Today’s progress may feel good but will probably leave you exhausted. Don’t take on too much; it’s better to do one job well than to do several things haphazardly.

 
Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You do what you can to put your best foot forward, even in light of discouraging news today. It isn’t easy to overcome a setback just by changing your mind. There are other concerns about the people you love and your role in the community. You have a lot to think about now, but rest assured your perspective will be better tomorrow. Allow a couple of days for things to turn around before reassessing the situation.

 
Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your somber attitude may be misinterpreted today as incurable pessimism; however, you don’t feel as negative as you appear. You understand exactly what’s required to reach your goals and are willing to do whatever you must to deliver on your promises. However, others may express their doubts now, but don’t let them talk you out of your beliefs. Approach the future with a realistic outlook to prevent unnecessary disappointment later on.

 
Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The connection between your current inability to express yourself freely and others holding you back might be more challenging than you think. In fact, your creativity may be squelched by Saturn’s square to the Sun. Be careful; don’t jump to conclusions today or you could waste a lot of energy incorrectly blaming others for your dilemma. Taking total responsibility for your own actions is a healthy place to start.

 
Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It doesn’t feel good if a friend suddenly withdraws his or her support today. The cold shoulder you are receiving doesn’t seem to be an appropriate response to your hard work, leaving you feeling angry and confused. Don’t waste time or energy complaining; instead, take the high road and finish what you started. The more you stay focused now, the easier it will be next week when the challenging Sun-Saturn alignment begins to fade.
