We are ready to initiate action and tackle new projects today with the Moon in courageous Aries. We may even jump into circumstances before thinking about the consequences. Fortunately, change works in our favor as the Moon trines lovely Venus this afternoon. However, we might hit a speed bump when the Moon opposes stern Saturn just before shifting into earthy Taurus at 7:26 pm EDT, slowing us down enough so we can regain a sense of balance.
Hurry up and finish what you already started, or begin something new while you still have a chance. Either way, you’re feeling the pressure to take action right away as familiar surges of urgency wash over you like waves upon the beach. Between moments of active inspiration, you also may feel somewhat moody until the evocative Moon leaves your sign this evening. Although allowing time for contemplation is healthy, don’t let self-doubt hijack your day.
It’s as if something is tickling your psyche today, yet it’s difficult to tell exactly what it is or where it’s coming from. You feel inspired, but you don’t have a clear strategy for applying your creativity. Your daydreams may be so vivid now that you’re standing on unfamiliar ground. Nevertheless, pay attention to your visions because they can help guide you through the days ahead.
You may think that there’s no limit to what you might accomplish today, but actually there’s only so much you can juggle at one time. You must make some difficult choices now if you want something of lasting value to come from your current efforts. Don’t be a jack of all trades and a master of none. Setting priorities seems painful at first, but you’ll feel a whole lot better once you do.
You want to make major progress at work now that the Moon is illuminating your 10th House of Career. However, it’s difficult to stick with just one project because your thoughts are running in several directions. Instead of attempting to focus on the most practical tasks at hand, let your fantasies take you where they will today. A deadline might slip under the radar, and, luckily, others are willing to adapt to your schedule. Currently you are more successful if you work at your own pace.
The pace of your life continues to settle down today. You Lions have been on the go for a while and it feels good now that you can grab a catnap or two. However, the focus isn’t on sleeping — it’s all about dreaming. Your subconscious is releasing powerful messages, and you may learn something very significant about yourself if you take the time to decipher the symbols.
Although you might want to sit back and enjoy the day, you quickly grow anxious when you’re idle for more than just a few minutes. Logically, you know you should be able to take some time for yourself, but you keep worrying about all the unfinished work that still needs to be done. Instead of trying to escape now, concentrate on your goals for the day. Thankfully, your extra effort pays off and you should be able to completely relax this evening.
It’s a rather noisy day and you prefer your life to be a little less hectic now. It’s not that there are too many things going on at once. It’s just that everything requires a little more of your attention than you expected. You wish that you could rely on others to help, but they have their own agendas to keep them busy. Get creative and take responsibility for your own destiny the best you can. Your calendar will become easier to manage as the week wears on.
Although your intentions are good and you enjoy the appreciation you receive, you may feel overwhelmed if you take on too much work. You might be afraid of the proverbial straw that could break the camel’s back — and the camel is you. But there’s nowhere to run. Take a deep breath and accept that you need to follow through with your word to the best of your ability. Fortunately, the cosmos comes to your aid and things could work out much better than you expect.
You feel driven today and have enough energy to do whatever must be done. You are moving into a highly optimistic phase where you might have a difficult time separating the reality of the situation from your belief that everything will be fine. Don’t fall asleep at the wheel of consciousness now, or you could wake up to find yourself crashing into reality. There’s nothing wrong with positive thinking as long as you accept the facts.
Situations can manifest today that require your immediate involvement. You are great when it comes to organizing events, especially in the midst of dealing with minor crises. The problem is that your solutions may defy practical logic now. Make no mistake about it; this is a test and you can pass with flying colors if you trust your feelings and your intuition. Remember, the force is with you.
The energy seems a bit more settled today than it did yesterday. However, you might not even realize that you’re through the eye of the storm and are coming out on the other side now. The skies are clearing and clarity is returning. You are a survivor because your individuality prevents you from losing yourself completely to the agenda of others. You’ve had to fight for what is yours. Take time to reflect on your journey and appreciate your accomplishments.
The currents of your feelings may be flowing too strongly for your taste today. You might be anxious because your emotions are in a state of transition. Don’t panic; you’ll be fine if you trust the process. Just think of yourself like a surfer riding the waves that arise from the depths of your imagination.
It’s challenging to feel satisfied today because an anxious quincunx between attractive Venus and assertive Mars indicates we could pursue the wrong things. We may be discouraged when we finally realize that we don’t actually want what we have earned. The breezy Gemini Moon prompts us to change our minds often during the day, while late night aspects to the cosmic lovers, Venus and Mars, can stir up an argument, even if we thought all was well.
It’s difficult to maintain a steady work pace today if your natural rhythm feels off balance. Your key planet Mars is stressed in your 6th House of Daily Routine, possibly making advanced planning of your day counterproductive. It’s better to be free from too many commitments now because you could be required to respond to changing circumstances. If you feel as if you’re stuck in a rut, making small changes is healthier than turning everything upside down.
You typically stick with a decision once you make up your mind, but you might go back and forth several times today before you finally are satisfied with your choice. Your ambivalence could leave you feeling nervous, especially if you’re getting pressured by others to make a commitment. However, it’s not wise to give your final answer before you are comfortable with it. Step back from all the noise so you can listen to your inner voice; your intuition won’t steer you wrong now.
It seems as if time is speeding up and your life is moving faster than you prefer. Normally, you like the thrill that comes from a lot of activity, but today you will be ready for some rest by the end of the day. Give yourself time to relax in the evening, since you will need to have your wits about you if relationship issues surface. An emotionally charged conflict that arises now is best handled in the present moment with honesty and kindness.
You would love to find a harmonious balance today between your desire to resolve an ongoing disagreement and your tendency to avoid difficult communication by withdrawing into your shell. Although you’re considering every option, you’re fairly comfortable with your own feelings. If you sense emotional tension in the atmosphere, make everyone feel better by confronting the issue directly.
You may receive a “Get Out of Jail Free” card from the universe, however, you must use it right away. Although you haven’t solved any long-term issues, you can sidestep the problems for a while as you relax by taking a scenic ride today. Imagine yourself moving through the day as if it is a dream while always keeping one foot on the ground, so you won’t forget what’s real. Remain open to pleasurable experiences now without stressing about how you will integrate them into your life.
The proverb “the devil is in the details” could be your unraveling today. Everything may appear to be unfolding according to your master plan, but it’s entirely possible you could overlook something very important. Rather than trying to minimize your error, face up to it right away. Avoiding a problem will only make it grow in size. Make the necessary changes so you can put things back on track as quickly as you can.
Today goes well for you if you can keep your feelings to yourself, since your desires will likely conflict with what others want. Unfortunately, you have something to say and you don’t want to put it off. Once you begin expressing yourself, it’s hard to know when to stop. You could work yourself into a state of anxiety that makes you less effective in communicating your message. Avoid becoming a victim of your own passion now by using as few words as you can to explain your point of view.
You may be juggling your responsibilities today because you’re trying to accomplish too much at once. Still, you could complete everything that is required if you stop and prioritize what you need to do. Mapping out your day helps to prevent you from scattering your energy and frittering away your resources. Be realistic in your approach; if necessary, pare back activities instead of waiting until you’re already behind schedule.
You may believe that a new strategy is required now to take a relationship to the next level or to revitalize it with fresh energy. Nevertheless, you still might resist the necessary changes unconsciously if you aren’t certain which way you want to go. Don’t let confusion stand in the way of truth. Rather than tapdancing around the edges of confrontation, be direct and say exactly what’s on your mind. Even if your opinion creates dissension, resolution will be possible once everything is out in the open.
You have lots of thoughts running through your head today, but it’s challenging to put them into words because they are moving so quickly. It’s difficult to gauge the impact of your presentation because one minute it seems as if everyone’s agreeing with you, and then the next minute someone’s belittling your perspective. Paradoxically, you’ll be more successful if you don’t try so hard. Be patient and save your most convincing arguments until tomorrow when the planets are on your side.
You might think that you can sweet talk your way through a tricky situation today, but someone may not be willing to take what you say at face value. There can be powerful feelings just beneath the surface, making it difficult for you to get your way. Normally, your fixed sense of purpose enables you to successfully navigate your way through the obstacles. Although it’s difficult to focus now, you can still win an argument if you remember to keep bringing the discussion back to the point at hand.
Although you may be an incurable dreamer, it’s not helpful to drift off into the clouds now. You won’t be able to complete what you have started if your mind keeps wandering into the future. It’s more important to concentrate on the present moment than to think about what you will need to do next. If necessary, lean on a trusted friend or partner for help. But even if someone’s advice feels more like criticism, listen to what you’re being told and consider incorporating it into your strategy.
It may feel as if the year is ending today rather than tomorrow because the imaginative Pisces Moon coaxes us out of the real world and into our dreams. The Moon’s creative square to mental Mercury allows us to bend the facts based upon our needs while her tense opposition to feisty Mars increases our impatience. Meanwhile, an eccentric Mercury-Uranus alignment fills our fantasies with unconventional ideas that encourage us toward radical action.
You probably have a clear set of objectives and understand why it’s important to tie up loose ends today. However, your mind is on everything except work because you’re eager for the weekend to begin. The Moon’s presence in your 12th House of Escapism opposes action-hero Mars in your 6th House of Employment, enticing you to find ways to avoid doing much of anything. Unfortunately, you’ll pay the price for procrastinating, so bite the bullet and get your chores done before it’s too late.
You are in a creative mood today, but you might not have time for artistic pursuits. Responsibilities at work have piled up or there are chores yet to finish at home. Nevertheless, a bit of concentrated effort can go a long way now if you don’t allow yourself to be distracted by everything interesting thing that comes to your attention. Narrow your focus so you have time to explore playful self-expression later in the day.
You may be uncertain about what you need to do in order to live up to other people’s expectations. For example, your boss might give you unclear directions and then be unavailable to answer your questions. Or, you might have previous obligations that distract you from a current assignment. In any case, accepting the impossibility of pleasing everyone frees you to simply do the best you can and then let go until the confusion clears.
Your head is filled with such big ideas now that it’s unrealistic to make any of them come true. Even if you create a prioritized list of things to do, your wandering mind scatters your thoughts and actions. Instead of biting off more that you can chew, use the day to review the previous year and think about the next one. Don’t judge yourself harshly if you aren’t very productive today. Some days are just meant for dreaming.
You want to stretch your boundaries today by talking about your feelings with someone special. However, your words may seem vague, even if you have very specific things you want to say. Ironically, using fewer words helps you to be more concise in your thinking. Save the long rambling conversations for another day; instead, let your actions speak for you.
You may be stressed out by someone close to you because you cannot figure out what he or she wants. Even if you’re asked for something very specific, you could be confused when you deliver the goods only to have your partner or friend tell you that you got it wrong. You might begin to think that you’re in a no-win situation, but your frustration is temporary. Thankfully, you’re able to change the dynamics when you stop trying so hard and just treat your loved ones with kindness.
You have high hopes for improving your daily health regimen now and may try to put your goals into the form of resolutions for the New Year. However, the dreamy Pisces Moon in your 6th House of Details makes it hard to put your desires into an executable plan. Instead of writing a list of vague generalities based upon unrealistic goals, be specific as possible. It’s better to have two or three concrete items than lots of good ideas that remain unrealized.
Although you might talk about how you’re going to increase your income or change your spending habits, your actions today don’t necessarily support your goals. You may be tempted to spend money on something for the sheer enjoyment of it. Unfortunately, you could become self-critical very quickly, preventing you from having the pleasurable experience you expected. Cut yourself some slack so you can have a little well-earned fun.
Although you continue to apply yourself toward specific professional goals, you might choose to leave work early today. You’re tempted to retreat into the hidden recesses of your own mind and leave some responsibilities unfulfilled. Instead of participating in social activities later on, consider staying home and escaping by watching a movie, playing video games or reading a book.
This can be a good planning day as long as you remember to pay attention to the details. You’re tempted to dream big, while still understanding the need to maintain a practical outlook on your future. Even if you are thinking about taking a vacation to an exotic location, you’re able to keep yourself on track and within your budget. Research your options, take good notes, and don’t be afraid to do something you have never done before.
Your friends and associates can be a source of good times today, but participating in social activities might end up costing you more than expected. It’s not that you’re stingy; it’s just than you would prefer to know in advance how much something will cost. Although you may want to blame others for misleading you, your eagerness to be involved might have inhibited you from asking too many questions up front. Let go of any resentment; for now, just enjoy yourself while you can.
It seems as if others are picking on you today for no reason at all. But the hypersensitive Pisces Moon is opposite Mars in critical Virgo, suggesting that you are more vulnerable now than usual. Don’t assume that everyone is on your case just because you’re feeling insecure. You could miss out on some very good advice if you’re afraid of hearing the truth.
On one hand, today’s efficient Virgo Moon narrows our thinking and focuses our attention on the smallest details. On the other hand, rational Mercury forms a stressful square with expansive Jupiter, inflating molehills into mountains. We can turn passing thoughts into grandiose plans or fleeting ideas into belief systems. Still, we won’t get away with sloppy logic because Mercury aligns with punishing Pluto, forcing us to rethink our conclusions.
You are tempted to turn every little insignificant idea into a world of unlimited potential. You can, as William Blake wrote, “see infinity in a grain of sand.” But reaching for the stars doesn’t mean that you will actually reach them. Nevertheless, just extending yourself beyond your normal limits can create opportunities that will lead you to a more fulfilling life.
No matter what you do to keep yourself on task today, you might not be able to resist an offer that sounds better than it is. Thankfully, you also need some personal space now, so you might be able to maintain a bit of distance between you and someone who entices you with a good idea. Don’t withdraw completely; just stay aware of what could happen if you leave your work undone.
Your key planet Mercury has you on a mental tilt-a-whirl today and it can be tricky to keep your bearings. Riding a wave of enthusiasm is fun, but you also have serious business to attend to now. Fortunately, your analytical powers are strong if you can remember to balance pleasure with practicality. But don’t try to take any shortcuts; managing your time wisely will pay off in the long run.
You may feel stuck if your emotions aren’t in harmony with your experiences today, and your growing impatience provokes you to justify your impulsive actions. Your highly opinionated manner and apparent self-confidence might be a way to hide your fear, but you could take things too far if you’re not careful. Take a deep breath and bring yourself back to your center before your unsubstantiated facts land you in a pile of trouble.
Your dilemma today stems from needing to find a healthy balance between overly cautious planning and acting recklessly. Thankfully, your organizational skills are operating efficiently today, enabling you to handle a lot of information. Nevertheless, pay attention to the practical constraints on your time and energy. You can be a star if you practice some self-discipline before you’re overcommitted.
Your approach to others can be very outgoing today, yet you would prefer to show more self-restraint. But the Moon in your sign could make you overly talkative, especially with perceptive Mercury in the spotlight. Don’t squander your mental resources; using words sparingly will give them extra impact. Remember, rambling on endlessly about your latest idea is not the best way to accomplish your goals. Do more and say less.
You are clear about your current responsibilities, but you don’t necessarily want to follow through on them. Part of your problem now is that you might think everything should be easier than it really is. Believing that you’ll magically find a shortcut through the hard work could lead you to waste time looking for a quick fix. Conserve your energy for doing what’s actually necessary to get to the finish line.
Stay away from philosophical or political debates today because you could actually be arguing with yourself, and not with anyone else. At times it might even be difficult to tell which side you’re on. However, you’re not really flip-flopping on the issues; it’s just that you can see multiple solutions that are sensible. Nevertheless, it’s better now to wait before committing to any one position.
You have a lot to do today because busy Mercury activates your key planet Jupiter in your 6th House of Work. Although it’s crucial to make positive changes in your daily routine, it’s not helpful to turn your whole world upside down. It can be tricky because it’s so easy for you to be distracted now by almost anything. Keep in mind that managing what’s on your plate currently is more important than dreaming about the future.
You’re often the champion of organization and planning because you can maintain a healthy perspective under pressure. Typically, you are able to calculate what needs to be done to achieve your goals. Today, however, your reality filter may be a bit off as everything seems to have greater potential than it actually does, so it’s wise to avoid making impulsive decisions. Thankfully, a bit of consideration goes a long way, so think twice and give your answer once, after your common sense returns.
You could set up a friend for disappointment today if you don’t establish limits on how much you’re willing to help. Your mind is racing and you’re tempted to agree to nearly anything just to quiet your worry. Unfortunately, this kind of logic won’t really solve the problem. Instead of taking the easy way out and then being unable to fulfill your promises, say what you’re truly feeling. The real answers now won’t likely be rational because they will come from your heart.
Your schedule may be overbooked today and this might turn into a real problem. Only one appointment needs to run late and your whole day could fall apart. Instead of setting yourself up for a disaster, take a more flexible approach. Something as simple as leaving extra time between events may be enough to prevent a major mess later on.
The Moon enters imaginative Pisces at 12:57 am EDT, and quickly joins boundless Neptune to enhance our dreams even further. However, an early morning Venus-Pluto square awakens the shadows of our desires. And, a powerful Sun-Pluto trine releases transformative energies and gives us the ability to ride these evolutionary waves that require full engagement. We are motivated to succeed now and could pay a high price if we fearfully avoid change.
Clearly communicating your point of view sounds like a good idea until someone steps forward with a conflicting opinion. You might try to convince him or her that your perspective is the correct one, but you may not be the only person who is committed enough to fight for your beliefs. Rather than wasting energy defending your conclusion today, use this interaction as an opportunity for growth. However, you must remain open now to ideas different from your own.
You are able to stand firm in your beliefs today, making others recognize that you have the determination to reach your goals. Your associates will most likely support your ideas because they are eager to be on the winning team. However, it’s not a good idea to abuse your power. If your actions come from selfish desires, you won’t be able to keep your following. Fortunately, you can go far if you are conscious enough to work toward the common good.
You have open channels of communication today that tap into rich archetypal symbols. You can gain guidance from subconscious images that pop into your awareness, but this isn’t just a mental exercise. Your dreams motivate you to act directly on your feelings instead of on rational thoughts. Don’t try to filter or intellectualize your fantasies; allow them to bypass your head and directly touch your heart.
You are able to clearly see where you’re heading now and could become the person that everyone depends on because of your solid sense of direction. It’s wise to rely on your instincts because you know where you are, and how to get where you are going. But you must pay careful attention today since everything seems to be moving so fast. Update others with the details often so everyone feels included in the process.
You can waste a lot of words today by talking about what’s happening and what you think needs to be done. Unfortunately, others may not be listening very well. It isn’t that you’re boring; in fact, your friends usually want to hear what you have to say. It’s just that they’re tired of idle chatter now. It is time for taking constructive action; you will be noticed if you do more and say less.
You can see things more clearly today as if your world suddenly became brighter. Although your senses are usually sharp, you have a much wider range of perceptions today. Experiences that may have been beyond your awareness only yesterday are now beckoning you into new territory. Enjoy this journey of growth; metamorphosis is safer than you think.
You might feel as if other people are still being pushier than necessary, but it may not disturb you today because you have found the courage to stand up for yourself. Your unshakable conviction is your secret weapon now; if you’re in tune with your own purpose, then no one can come between you and your soul’s destiny.
The Sun’s harmonious trine with your key planet Pluto allows you to move forward with unrelenting intent. The absolute certainty that arises from accepting your fate won’t lead you astray today. However, acquiescing to your destiny isn’t about being powerless; it’s about taking responsibility to create the waves upon which you are riding. You are a mover and shaker now, so go out of your way to make something memorable happen while you can.
You are able to strengthen your financial foundation these days as the Sun harmonizes with potent Pluto in your 2nd House of Money. Thankfully, you can overcome nearly any limitations that you currently face. One obvious way to progress toward your fiscal goals is to spend less money, yet this strategy might not take you far enough. Consider refinancing your home, making a wise investment or even accepting a second job. Whatever you try now, think seriously about your future security.
You are more intense today as Pluto in your sign is emphasized by its aspects to Venus and the Sun. Others might not realize how grounded you are because your passions are close to the surface. Fortunately, you can express your feelings and are then able to back them up with practical action. Don’t be satisfied with what you already have; set new goals and then work to achieve them. You might surprise yourself with how much you can accomplish now.
You have an opportunity to share your opinion about a delicate matter today without stirring up trouble, even if your perspective is controversial. If you previously upset others because of your unconventional beliefs, you now get to express the same thoughts without creating more negative repercussions. Make certain that you present your conclusions logically without attacking anyone else’s values.
Your friends may come to your assistance today and support you in ways that money can’t buy. On a mundane level, they might help out with physical labor or by protecting you from others. Your closest allies will also speak the truth, even if it isn’t what you want to hear. You can always go out and hire someone to work for you; however, it’s a real gift when you receive honest and intelligent feedback from someone that you can trust.
Romantic Venus entered ardent Aries yesterday, heating up the relationship landscape. Today anything can happen when Venus joins unpredictable Uranus. Emotional lightning can electrify our desires and we won’t likely be satisfied by familiar routine. However, the Moon enters cautious Capricorn at 6:24 am EDT, reminding us that acting on our unrestrained feelings isn’t always the smartest idea. Some fantasies are better left unfulfilled.
You are totally ready for whatever experiences the day may bring. However, you might also wish that you had more stability in your life now. These divergent feelings can grow into a real dilemma, especially if you aren’t willing to admit that a part of you is very comfortable to continue with your same old patterns. Once you acknowledge your basic need for security, you can move on to whatever comes next.
You aren’t easily satisfied as your key planet Venus joins eccentric Uranus, tempting you to reach for something or someone that you cannot have now. However, you don’t need to waste your time trying to fulfill your transitory desires today. Instead, try applying yourself toward meeting your current obligations. Although being responsible doesn’t sound as much fun as chasing a dream, the rewards should justify your total concentration.
You want to hang out with your friends this evening, but it will be tricky to actually follow through with your wishes. Someone who’s close to you may need your assistance and you can’t ignore a request for your help. It’s important to process any unexpressed anger or resentment you have over a change of plans so that it doesn’t get in the way of a meaningful experience. Being flexible enables you to make the most of a difficult situation.
It’s important to put on a happy face, even if you’re struggling with serious issues today. However, this tactic isn’t a license to avoid the pressing issues of the day. Your smartest strategy is to stay aware of the current duality; remember that your inside and outside are following different scripts now and there isn’t any need to fit everything into a tidy package. The stress will settle down and then the dilemma will probably just fade away.
Your mind is on your well-being today with the Moon activating your 6th House of Routine, and you may be reconsidering ways to improve your diet and upgrade your exercise program. The problem is that you are also looking forward to a bit of indulgent behavior — and this may be incongruent with your plans for healthier living. Remember, your approach doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing strategy. Don’t be overly self-critical just because you’re human. Cut yourself some slack and enjoy earthly pleasures while you can.
Although the responsible Capricorn Moon assures that you are being practical, you’re still looking for some fun today. Fortunately, work and play aren’t incompatible, but you could run into a problem when trying to balance the two. Life becomes more complicated if someone throws you a curve ball by inviting you to do something special. Your tendency is to say no, but it’s a smart idea to take a chance and say yes.
You may shock someone today by spilling the beans about what you want before you even think to censor yourself. Once you speak your piece, however, there’s no way to take back your words — even if you wish you could. Inadvertently hurting someone’s feelings isn’t your idea of successful communication, so think about your impact before you open your mouth and say what’s on your mind.
You might believe that you’re being lighthearted and playful, but your words can carry sharp hooks today, even if your intentions are all good. You are a champion of sarcasm now; your dry humor and your incisive wit may be more biting than you realize. Don’t tone down your ideas; just make sure that you express the truth with kindness.
Your current dilemma could pit your desire for fun against your more responsible need to save money. Your financial condition may be unstable now, yet you don’t want your lack of expendable cash to deter your big weekend plans. Fortunately, you may discover that it’s easier than you thought to cut back on unnecessary spending without negatively affecting your quality of life.
These last several days have been rather strange, as if steady winds are blowing in from other dimensions. Now, however, the otherworldliness dissipates and your life begins to return to normal. Don’t waste time attempting to figure out where you’re going; just focus on what needs to be done for others. Your greatest pleasure comes from being productive in the present moment, not dreaming about the unknown future.
The thrill ride continues and, although you have gained some common sense, your imagination has also been unlocked. Thankfully, you can distinguish between your dreams and reality today, but there’s interference on all your communication lines, so it’s impossible to speak with the same clarity you feel. Move through all discussions deliberately, while making certain everyone understands what you’re saying before moving on to the next subject.
It seems as if someone’s trying to make you feel guilty, especially if you are rebellious and do something now that’s just for yourself. But it’s not your job to keep everyone happy while you are left unfulfilled. This can be a great time to experiment and express yourself in radical ways because the security-conscious Capricorn Moon prevents you from taking your unorthodox behavior too far.
