Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, October 7th

Often we can use logic to understand what’s happening, but today our hearts override our heads as the passionate Scorpio Moon intensifies our feelings. Nevertheless, our desires grow less obsessive as sweet Venus enters philosophical Sagittarius. Meanwhile, an unsettling alignment between physical Mars and electric Uranus has us on edge. We want to believe that our thoughts can dominate our emotions, but experience reminds us that they do not.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It’s hard to hide your feelings today, especially if you’re experiencing jealousy now that the possessive Scorpio Moon is visiting your 8th House of Intimacy. You might try to keep everything light and easy, but others aren’t necessarily playing by the same rules. You don’t know whether to heat things up by expressing your feelings or to cool off by withdrawing until you can regain your equilibrium. Take a step back; the intensity settles later in the day, allowing you to address the issue in a calm and collected manner.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may not understand why someone needs to be so intense today. Nevertheless, a close friend or colleague might appear to be unable to let go of an unnecessary drama. You find it annoying and frustrating if you attempt to use reason to settle down the energy. Your discomfort becomes less problematic when you finally realize that you don’t have to empathize with everyone around you. All you need to do is be present and listen; sometimes offering a supportive shoulder is enough.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

A case of irritability could get the best of your morning, but the emotional skies begin to clear this afternoon. Your restlessness is magnified by so many planets dragging you into the deep waters of Scorpio and drawing you into personal issues that you would rather avoid. Instead of wasting your energy resisting the currents, it’s safer now to go with the flow when Venus shifts into inspirational Sagittarius today. Rather than lingering in the past, start looking forward to the possibilities ahead.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You’re comforted by the change of dynamics today as someone close to you acknowledges your feelings and supports you in an unexpected manner. However, the more you talk, the more you might realize that your goals aren’t in alignment. Keep in mind that you may be a bit oversensitive now, so don’t judge others too quickly just because their assumptions are different from yours. Diversity is healthy because it fosters a more creative approach.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be feeling the need to retreat as your thoughts pull you into the shadows of your inner world. Exploring the hidden realms of your imagination could be quite productive, but others might be worried about you and attempt to lure you back out into the sunshine. Remember, it’s not necessary to live up to someone else’s expectations now. The most important thing is to learn what you can from your visit to the dark side so you’re ready for the next round of progress.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You feel more secure when you have useful information at your disposal, but being overwhelmed with unnecessary data only fills your head with noise. Unfortunately, you may be caught in a complex swirl of emotions these days, making it difficult to ascertain what to do next. It might feel like an exercise in futility if you can’t immediately apply the lessons you are learning. Practicing patience is your smartest strategy now; integrate your current experiences before swinging into action for the best results.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re feeling quite attached to your possessions these days with so much planetary action packed into your 2nd House of Resources. You might even appear to have more than you actually do because you’re willing to get along with less. But feeling good about yourself encourages you to also feel more positive about your finances. Don’t delude yourself and spend more than you should since banking on future income could create trouble. A more realistic approach leads to a richer tomorrow.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your persuasive powers are hard to resist now; it’s as if you can put a spell on someone you love or convince people to see a situation from your perspective. However, there is more going on than meets the eye, so refrain from using your charms for anything other than the common good of all. Controlling anyone for a selfish reason is likely to backfire quicker than you think. Happily, an altruistic attitude sets the stage for success that exceeds your expectations.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your intuition is telling you that sunny days are on the horizon. But you may appear smug today if you truly believe you know something that others don’t. Rather than explaining your point of view, you’re tempted to bask in the light of the superiority of your privileged perspective. Don’t take advantage of your current position because it won’t last forever. As soon as everyone else catches on and recognizes the potential, the playing field will be even again. Sharing the good news right away cultivates a lovely spirit of generosity.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Playing nicely with your friends and family is easy today because you’re able to cut through the noise and be fully present in your personal interactions. It’s not that you forget about more serious issues, but you are tempted to place your ambitions on hold while you deepen your most important social relationships. Don’t waste energy doubting your sentimental approach; you can always put your professional aspirations back on the front burner next week.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Being appreciated for your contributions at work is a real boost to your confidence today, especially if the current recognition is from people you respect in return. But you might be concerned that someone isn’t being totally genuine and their actions aren’t only about you. Even if political complexities exist that could justify someone’s ulterior motives, don’t let your fears prevent you from enjoying the attention in the present moment.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

This is a great time to discuss your plans with others to get their reactions, especially if you have been considering a long vacation or even a quick getaway. Fortunately, with so much action occurring in your 9th House of Travel, you will likely receive the approval you want. Don’t hold back; dream big and share your aspirations. You may be happily surprised at the response. Pack your bags and go before anyone changes their mind.

Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, September 18

It feels as if love is hard to find today, but we might be pleasantly surprised if we take the time to look beyond surface appearances. We may show our displeasure by withdrawing emotionally as the somber Venus-Saturn conjunction resonates through our lives. It’s not easy to blend the affectionate warmth of Venus with the calculated coldness of Saturn. However, the compassionate Pisces Moon offers a spiritual response to more practical questions.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Withholding support from someone isn’t a good idea today even if you’re trying to send a message of disapproval. Or maybe you want to separate yourself from a project that has gone astray. In either case, your actions aren’t helpful if your responses are based on fear of the unknown. It’s more useful to honestly talk about the cause of your concerns without blaming anyone else. But don’t expect the tension to dissipate right away. Stay on your current path by working with others until you gain more clarity after tomorrow’s Full Moon.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might feel a little left out of the fun as if there’s an emotional chill in the air now that your key planet Venus is restrained by the dominance of karmic Saturn. Although you may fight against the resistance at first, letting go of control is the smartest way today to quickly turn an uncomfortable situation into a very sweet one. Give up a little independence voluntarily; it’s a small price to pay in the big scheme of things and can improve your chances of receiving the love that you desire.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be offered a tough choice today, especially if you aren’t one to make a commitment easily. You could be very convincing as you explain your desire for intimacy, but you’ll likely retreat if someone gets too near to your heart. However, mustering up enough courage to overcome your fears is the key to happiness. Luckily, you don’t have to repeat the same old patterns just because you are scared of getting hurt. Take a leap of faith and trust the process.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It appears that you could get the support you need from a close friend or a family member if you ask for it, so you don’t really have a logical reason to keep quiet now. Even if you can’t easily imagine that someone will actually be there for you, taking a calculated risk should turn out fine. Instead of seeing your current situation as requiring an all-or-nothing approach, try to establish enough common ground for the basis of a solid partnership. Let others nurture you the way you would nurture them.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It may be awkward to engage in a casual conversation now because your feelings might be exposed and you’re afraid that you won’t get what you want. Your unspoken fears could actually turn into a self-fulfilling prophesy today, especially if you withdraw from social interaction. Fortunately, you have the power to overcome the negativity of your own self-limiting thoughts. You can turn things around by changing your attitude and opening your heart.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s time to make a crucial decision about how best to spend or save your money. But this goes much deeper than being a simple cash flow problem because the underlying issue is more likely about your self-esteem. When you realize all the skills that you have to offer, your earning power could grow quickly, so don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you’re worth any less than you actually are.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are not inclined to waste your energy while sharing your feelings today. You are very practical when it comes to allocating your time now that your key planet Venus runs into austere Saturn in your 2nd House of Resources. You may be very rational about cutting back on frivolous pleasures to assure that you will have what you need on a rainy day. Although caution makes sense, remember that there is an unlimited supply of love, so you can always splurge where it matters most.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You don’t need to suffer in silence today if you’re willing to face an old fear with a new attitude. Your current isolation is probably more voluntary than you care to admit now that the sobering Venus-Saturn conjunction occurs in your sign. The current situation has very little to do with what happened to you in the past. It’s your choice; you can respond emotionally based on old worn-out habits or you can live fully in the present. Ultimately, being realistic is a much more empowering strategy than being pessimistic.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Don’t be so quick to assume that your friends are putting you down today when your warped perceptions may be contributing to the dynamics. You might be so sensitive now that you’re imagining trouble, even where there isn’t any. However, it may be too late to avoid the discomfort if negativity has already been generated by your feelings of uncertainty. Instead of projecting previous failures onto others, talk about your concerns without pointing fingers at anyone else. Honest dialogue clears the air by getting everything out into the open.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It may be disheartening if you don’t receive the professional respect you deserve now as vulnerable Venus bumps up against your key planet Saturn. You’ve done the hard work, yet unfortunately, your ego can get in the way by tricking you to think that you should be more highly appreciated than you are. Don’t waste your time dreaming about recognition and fame. The real reward is the deep satisfaction that comes from knowing you’ve done your very best.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Unfortunately, there’s no room on your schedule to surrender to your desires now. Instead, you must maintain an emotionally cool and competent presence at work while sweet Venus runs into austere Saturn in your 10th House of Profession. Don’t waste energy complaining about what you’re missing; instead, get busy working on your long-term goals. Seeking personal satisfaction has to wait; being patient today is your best strategy to realizing your dreams tomorrow.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Too much resistance from a partner doesn’t give you an excuse to go off brooding today. Don’t isolate yourself from someone you love deeply just because you think that everything isn’t perfect between you. It’s tempting to hide your head in the sand like an ostrich, but this avoidance technique is certainly not a sensible long-term solution. Facing the shortcomings of a relationship might actually put you back in touch with your heart, which in turn, could lead to an emotional healing.

Calendar of the Sun for August 16th

Calendar of the Sun

Carista – Day of Peace in the Family

Color: Lavender
Element: Water
Altar: Upon a lavender cloth set a tray of cakes shaped like clasping hands, and many cups full of hot tea.
Offerings: Promise to attempt to be more considerate of those you live with.
Daily Meal: Any food, but it must be served from one great plate for every table, and it should not be in separate portions.

Carista Invocation

May there be Peace in this house.
(Response: “May there be peace in this house!”)
Peace can be a hard mistress.
The daily round of the ordinary,
The simple turn of day and night and day
The presence of the same souls
Can come to be like a shadow on the sun,
And yet Peace still demands
That we find a way to move past
That ordinariness
And all the thousand thorns and briars
And bring Peace into the house.
(Response: “May there be peace in this house!”)
Take the hand of your sister, your brother,
The one who shares your roof, your table,
The ground you walk on,
Whose feet know the boards as well as your own,
And swear to find a way
To bring peace into the space between you.
(Response: “May there be peace in this house!”)

Chant:
My brother, my heart, my sister, my soul;
My family, my life, come in from the cold;
My sister, my heart, my brother, my soul;
My family, my life, that makes this life whole.

(Instead of a ritual, this period of time should be used to mediate and address problems between members of the community, with emphasis on peacemaking and compromise and useful solutions. At the end of the meeting, all share cakes and tea.)

[Pagan Book of Hours]

Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, August 13th

We may withhold our feelings if they’re too strong to express now that the Moon is visiting secretive Scorpio. Intense energies are already at play, yet we’re encouraged to delve beneath the surface and face hidden emotions. Meanwhile, mental Mercury is stressing ruthless Pluto to add power to our ideas. We are caught in a cosmic current that pulls us into unfamiliar waters and our words may get us into trouble if we say everything we feel.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You prefer to be in total control of your life; however, you need others to participate now, because they bring additional resources to your plans. Thankfully, you still can manifest your own destiny; you just have to use a bit of teamwork to reach your destination. Although it may be necessary to make changes to your original agenda, compromise works in your favor in the long run.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It feels as if you are moving in and out of a dream today as you attempt to establish a connection point in the reality of your life. You are in an intense mode of operation and lost in your own thoughts. However, people in your immediate environment cannot be ignored, yet it also seems as if they don’t want to make your life any easier. Push past your discomfort and communicate; it’s better to know what you’re up against than to have your head in the clouds.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

There is a tricky situation developing and you need to separate out the big ideas floating around so you can dig into the specific problems. Unfortunately, you’re not going to be able to skate your way through this predicament. Ironically, if you set your feelings aside in order to deal with the volatility of the situation, things will work out better than you could imagine.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your passions need a creative outlet now as the tumultuous Scorpio Moon moves through your 5th House of Romance. You want to have fun without necessarily sacrificing depth of feeling on an energetic level. This means that your personal expressions have intensity, yet they won’t be overwhelming to others today. Your ability to gently uncover the motives of a close friend or partner allows you to share your emotions without risking too much vulnerability.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Today’s annoyances may blossom into tomorrow’s full-blown frustration unless you take care of managing your feelings in the present moment. But staying in tune with your emotions requires more attention than you want to give. Nevertheless, you can ease the pressure by facing whatever is sitting just beneath the surface and bringing it out into the open. It might not seem like a good idea at first, but your disclosure will relieve some of the tension and allow you to enjoy your day.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s all about your unexpressed thoughts today as your key planet Mercury forms a tense aspect to controlling Pluto. Your biggest concern isn’t deciding what to share; instead, you must choose what you won’t mention. You might believe that it’s smarter to say nothing at all and just bury your whole story. Unfortunately, keeping quiet won’t work now because the truth will just slip out anyhow. Open the door to communication before it is too late.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The waters are growing choppier and the winds are picking up now. The keel on your boat has kept you fairly level, but you may end up on the rocks unless you’re extra vigilant. It’s challenging to tell if your ship is riding deeper in the water or if the water has become shallow. Either way, you must get to the bottom of the issue in order to reestablish your equilibrium. As you realize the value of what you bring to the situation, your vessel will surprisingly regain its proper attitude.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are normally ready to dive headfirst into the emotional underworld and into your hidden dreams to visit your fears and insecurities when the Moon returns to your sign. But now, even your own inner guides may give you the silent treatment. It’s difficult for you to know what is real and what is illusion. It feels as if everyone around you is in a conspiracy to hide something — and they are all in on the secret except for you. However, don’t dig too deeply today. What you need to know will be revealed in due time.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may want to withdraw into your own little world by running away from your responsibilities; unfortunately, this is not a viable option at this time in your life. There are simply too many demands being made on you now. You’re responsible to think things through clearly — not only for your own benefit, but also for everyone else. Ultimately, you can do whatever is required in record time, but in your mind, you’re already enjoying your personal retreat.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be expected to do something for the group that you feel isn’t in your own best interest; understandably, this creates an awkward dilemma. You know what your long-term goals are, but have to set them aside for a bit as you fulfill previous commitments. Nevertheless, others continue to distract you with intense emotional needs and you cannot ignore them completely. The more you’re able to keep your mind on the practical side of things, the easier it is to perform your duties.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You don’t mind complexity; in fact, you’re often drawn to tricky mental puzzles and complicated concepts. However, you don’t like unresolved emotional issues as much. Unfortunately, there are weird power struggles now arising in your life, but you cannot yet tell where the tension is coming from. Secrecy only heightens the problem. The best thing you can do is keep as much as possible out in the open. The truth is the best defense against confusion. Initiating a friendly dialogue disarms even the toughest enemies.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your acute hypersensitivity might put you on edge today. You feel every wave in the sea of consciousness, and it may be a difficult task to know what to do with all these perceptions. Ironically, the emotional intensity can be so overwhelming that you choose to do nothing at all. Your key to making it through the day smiling is to concentrate on the small things and do them well. Leave the big picture for another day when you’re feeling more like yourself.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, February 20th

Our domestic ties are quite strong, yet we may need to venture out into the world anyhow, even with the Moon visiting her home sign of self-protective Cancer today. Fortunately, the Crab’s hard outer shell is symbolic of how we create boundaries in life so we do not needlessly put ourselves in harm’s way. Although we may experience stressful dynamics within the walls of our homes, they still offer us the appearance if not the assurance of safety.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It may be time to honor your need for privacy, even if you are accustomed to spending a lot of your energy engaged in activities with your friends and associates. You independent Rams often like to work alone, for your patience grows thin when others cannot keep up with you. But now your penchant for solitude might be more about recharging your emotional batteries so you can head back out revitalized, ready to conquer the world.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re more tentative about sharing your feelings now because you don’t want to risk your security. Unfortunately, keeping secrets can exhaust you because you have to focus attention on monitoring what you say. But your unexpressed emotions give you away today, so face your fears and resist the temptation to go quiet. Act proactively; engage in deep and meaningful conversations by choice. There’s no need to wait for anyone else to drag you into a conversation if you go there first.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

The pace of life slows down today, bringing you more time to integrate a recent change of heart. You may need to reconsider your goals or even change your position on a professional matter. If something totally unexpected is tossed at you, do your best to catch it in stride. But mind your own business now; any extra concern that you put toward someone else’s problems might only make matters worse. Realigning your priorities makes sense because you have plenty to do on your own.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s difficult to know exactly what you feel today since your moods can radically shift from moment to moment now that the Moon’s back in your sign. You may go from wanting to pour your heart out to a friend or lover to withdrawing to the safety of your hidden cave. Try not to make any long-lasting decisions until your feelings settle back down. In the meantime, let your emotions flow naturally without trying to change them.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although others seem to be looking right at you, you still may feel as if you aren’t being seen. You don’t understand how they can miss the point as you hold your head high and carry out your assigned tasks, even if your heart is hurting. Remember, if you are having an overly emotional day, a humble disclosure to a trusted friend might bring the recognition you so desperately seek. Take the time you need to process your feelings before you step back into the spotlight

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You vacillate between accepting the support your colleagues offer today and fearfully pushing them away. Although you appreciate the camaraderie, you also need to know you can be self-sufficient. Try to soften your attitude, even if think you’re being overly dependent on others now. It’s a sign of intelligence and strength to openly embrace help when it is offered. There’s no need to let pride stand in the way when someone wants to see you shine.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might be swimming in tumultuous emotional waters now, unless you can let go of the control you believe you need. However, you’re not in charge of anyone’s feelings but your own. Instead of trying to fix the situation by making someone more comfortable, concentrate on yourself. Once you’ve adjusted your attitude, then others may have the freedom to do the same. Turn down the noise and listen to your heart.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re content exploring your feelings in the privacy of your own space today. Your emotional security is extremely important now and you may not be satisfied until you feel completely safe and sound in your environment. Thankfully, you can journey nearly anywhere you desire within the wilds of your imagination. Just don’t forget to demonstrate your colorful creativity while you have the chance.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

There may be an expansion-contraction dilemma developing now as your normally cavalier attitude assumes a more cautious stance today. But don’t succumb to the pressures of social expectations. You can’t please others if you don’t acknowledge your own desires first. Chill out and give yourself permission to withdraw from the party if you really want some time alone. A little peace and quiet might be just what you need to reinvigorate your spirit.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may not believe you have sufficient patience to hold someone’s hand while they go through an emotional meltdown; however, it could be exactly what’s required today. Alternatively, it might be you that’s the needy one at this time — making you even less patient with yourself than with another person. Either way, acknowledge that the expression of feelings doesn’t always fit neatly into a schedule. Being extra flexible enables you to stick with the process without being in such a hurry.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may be challenged by relationships at work now because your lack of clarity makes it hard to confront your needs and recognize how they differ from those of your peers. Your extra efforts might even seem to be a waste of time today. Although retreating into your own world isn’t the answer, gently creating extra space between you and others gives you room to honor your own feelings. Once you re-establish your center of gravity, you will be ready to reengage with a more positive attitude.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Although your current tendency might be toward isolation today, you still may indulge in romantic play. Ironically, your ability to enjoy yourself makes you more productive now that the evocative Moon is moving through your 5th House of Spontaneity. Try channeling this energy into creative expressions, whether for work or for your own amusement. Your dreams are the source of your greatest inspiration.

Daily Horoscopes for Monday, February 18th

We feel what connects us today, rather than what separates us from each other, as the Sun’s shift into the watery world of Pisces draws us further into the non-physical dimensions. Compassion is stirred and our souls respond to unseen magic that prepares us for the spring rebirth. Meanwhile, the eager Gemini Moon reflects our readiness for what’s ahead. However, stern Saturn turns retrograde, postponing changes until we’re fully prepared.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Sun’s entry into your 12th House of Endings requires you to get ready for the upcoming action, and there’s no time to waste. If you have recently overextended yourself by taking on too many projects, make an effort to clean up after your energy binge, but don’t be too self-judgmental in the process. Just start now by paring back your commitments and doing whatever it takes over the next few weeks to prepare for what’s around the corner.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It may feel as if your world is about to open up, so take this chance to think about your future. Unfortunately, the uncertainty makes you anxious, especially if your goals are out of sync with your current life circumstances. You might convince yourself that drastic action is needed to get back onto the proper path, but don’t push so hard for change today. Adopting a methodical approach to your long-term goals is better than trying to do everything all at once. Life is a marathon, not a sprint.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may consider re-evaluating your career path and making big changes as the Sun journeys through your 10th House of Status during the next four weeks. You have an opportunity to become more aware of your place in the world now. However, you might quickly regret letting this chance slip by, so make up your mind to take action while there’s still time. Thankfully, you could see positive results sooner than you think if you can visualize your way to success.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

These next few weeks are likely to bring a much-needed emotional boost. It’s not that you’re jumping up and down with excitement; it’s just that you feel comfortable in your own skin and are willing to stand up for your beliefs in order to maintain your integrity. Don’t worry about the details now; concentrate on your highest ideals. Your current vision is comprehensive, so be serious about making positive change while you can still see the big picture.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may attempt to gloss over criticism that you receive today from someone you consider to be family. However, acting in a cavalier manner could lead to more problems than you realize. Listen carefully to what others are saying and don’t try to dodge the truth. Take feedback as constructive guidance, even if it doesn’t feel as good as denial in the present moment. Your willingness to work on self-improvement now can fundamentally change the dynamics of a relationship for the better.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have a lot to gain in the next month by taking time to look back before moving ahead as the Sun travels through your 7th House of Others. Review all that you have accomplished since your last birthday and acknowledge everyone who has helped you along the way. Creating new goals for the balance of your year is critical to your happiness. Luckily, you can make nearly anything happen if you focus your intentions and then work hard to reach your dreams.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

If your thoughts have been aimed at creative endeavors, you may feel as if something is beginning to shift today. Instead of fostering an artistic approach to your work, seek ways to apply what you already started in a more practical manner. But be careful not to overdo it; it’s not healthy to take all the fun out of your life. To counteract the possibility of boredom now, initiate a new activity that has regularity to it, like taking a class or joining a club. Balancing work and play will put a smile back on your face.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may feel revitalized as the Sun occupies your 5th House of Fun and Games for the next several weeks. However, your surge of energy might not be apparent to others. Inspiration is returning to your imagination; you are beginning to feel more emotionally in touch with others around you. But don’t worry if you still feel the weight of responsibility on your shoulders. Making time to express what’s in your heart will help to lighten your load.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Not only are you maintaining your busy pace today, you’re also having fun doing it. Although the party doesn’t need to come crashing to an end, you realize that you have some serious thinking to do, and this pressure tempts you to withdraw from social activity. But don’t just hit the escape button yet; you’ll be happier in the long run if you deal with what’s making you feel uncomfortable rather than avoiding it. Taking care of business promptly gives you a sense of satisfaction and a valid reason to reward yourself.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Confusing times may be upon you as logical analysis fails to explain why your day seems to be running out of control. Even if you have spent considerable time making certain that you’re ready for what happens next, there are still variables that you just cannot manage. Don’t be too surprised by the twists and turns on the path of life now. Sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might actually breathe a sigh of relief as the willful Sun leaves your sign today and heads for the open seas of irrational Pisces. However, it still could take time to see where your new route will take you. Happily, the uncertainty will begin to settle down as you travel along. Problems won’t likely be solved overnight, yet it’s reassuring to know that there is plenty of time to plot your new course once you’re already on your way.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The warm rays of the Sun shine on you now, illuminating your imagination as it visits your sign for the next month. Your fantasies are especially active now, but you might be unable to effectively communicate your visions to anyone else. Powerful emotions can muddy the waters or even block your self-expression. But don’t waste energy trying to overcome your inertia, for it won’t last long. In the meantime, write down your dreams, but wait a few days before revealing them to others.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, January 31st

We want everyone to get along now because our attraction to peace and harmony is strong when the Moon visits diplomatic Libra. The Libra Moon also awakens our desire for beauty, prompting us to think about aesthetic perfection as an idea, rather than experiencing it directly. This sense of detachment is amplified by the conceptual Aquarius Sun. Meanwhile, the erratic brilliance of a Mercury-Uranus alignment zaps our minds with radical new ideas.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are drawn into stressful relationship dynamics, both at home and at work, as the Moon visits your 7th House of Companions. However, your emotions may not be on the same page as those of your partner or coworker. Unfortunately, you might place roadblocks between yourself and intimacy because you’re afraid of losing your independence. Instead of resisting your fears, get them out into the open where their power dissipates once and for all.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

The Moon’s presence in your 6th House of Work reflects your need to know you are doing a valuable service. Nevertheless, there is a part of you that would prefer to skip out on your responsibilities and indulge in pleasurable activities instead. However, as a stubborn Bull, it takes a lot to pull you off course; even if you want to relax, your unwavering determination can help keep you on track to reach your destination on time.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be motivated to express your creativity in original ways today, but it’s still hard to set practicality aside in the name of spontaneity. Nevertheless, your sense of responsibility won’t likely be strong enough to shut down your free-spirited behavior. It might be helpful to eliminate extraneous noise by minimizing your time online and postponing unnecessary meetings. You have a better chance of accomplishing your goals if you can hear yourself think.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might not feel very adventurous today as the Moon moves through your 4th House of Home and Family. But seclusion can be problematic, especially if you need to play a leadership role at work or in the community. Don’t waste time dreaming about your escape because you probably won’t go through with it, anyhow. Instead, demonstrate your maturity by doing the right thing now and fulfilling your obligations.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It’s all about diplomatic communication today as five planets move through relationship-oriented Air signs, making what you say less important than how you say it. However, you have the capability to turn your dreams into reality now, so you must be careful when sharing your fantasies with anyone else. Take time to consider your audience and fine tune your delivery; concentrate on your goal and stay true to your heart.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may seem very determined to get whatever you want today, but you must first overcome your timidity and ask properly. The emotional Moon in your 2nd House of Self-Worth can give you a sense of firm resolve, but your actions might not back up your intentions. If you find your mind wandering throughout the day, just gently bring your focus back on point and try again.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Tender feelings rise up to the surface as the gracious Libra Moon travels through your 1st House of Personality today. You are highly sensitized to the subtle emotional energy spreading through your environment, and you’re aware of the impact that your reactions have on others. As helpful as you are, don’t forget to take care of yourself, too. You won’t be any good to anyone if you don’t pay attention to your needs first.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might feel somewhat discouraged today as the Moon visits your 12th House of Escapism. It’s hard to get much done if you’re not motivated to interact with anyone else. You don’t want to be fully involved with the outer world and are tempted to withdraw into the hidden recesses of your imagination. Do what you must to get by, but don’t shut off your dreams now just because they don’t easily fit into reality. Remember, indulging your fantasies is a wonderful way to explore all the possibilities ahead.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Everything seems to run smoothly today, helping to soothe any lingering tensions. Don’t worry about trying to resolve all the differences of opinion; just remember that being kind and considerate relieves the building pressure. Your current strength is reinforced by the fair-minded way in which you deal with others, even when you don’t agree with them. It’s more important to be a part of the community now than being on the winning side.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It’s challenging to shake off the stress these days, especially if someone is pushing your emotional buttons. Still, you appear to continue acting gracefully even in a difficult situation. Thankfully, you’re able to hide your tension for a while longer, enabling others to feel more at ease. Fortunately, your own anxiety is ameliorated when everyone else finally settles down.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Even if serious responsibilities continue to multiply, today’s peaceful Libra Moon lightens things up. Although the source of your concerns won’t likely disappear, taking a more spiritual approach to very real problems certainly helps. There’s no reason to upset the applecart; for now, just try to go with the flow. Be smart and save your energy for when you really need to take a stand.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

There are complex emotional waves washing through your mind now, challenging you to balance them with more practical issues. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to find your rhythm and maintain the pace long enough to accomplish your goals. Listen to your inner voices as you carry on with your normal routine. The discomfort will settle soon, leaving you enriched by the experience.

Your Daily Horoscopes for January 24th

It’s difficult to keep our feelings hidden today, even if we don’t want to upset the status quo. The passive Cancer Moon reflects our penchant for privacy, but her stressful aspects to shocking Uranus and passionate Pluto indicate a wild ride ahead. Additionally, the Sun’s energizing sextile to electric Uranus tempts us to try nearly anything that excites us. We must balance our immediate desire for novelty with our need for emotional security.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your motivation to explore new territory is countered by feelings of emotional self-restraint today. Your inner voice reminds you to be sensitive to other people’s needs over your own. However, all the cautionary advice in the world may not prevent you from acting on a brilliant breakthrough now if you have the chance. Just remember to temper your actions with kindness so you don’t inadvertently hurt someone you love.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may save the day by creating the ultimate plan that everyone has been waiting for from someone else. Ironically, your contribution might come at the very last minute. Nevertheless, your thinking is sound even if it’s unexpected and unconventional. Expressing your ideas with clarity encourages others to support your solution. Don’t be afraid to take charge; assume the role of leader until you are sure that everything is running smoothly.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are flying at top speed yet you still feel something pulling you down today. The experience of dragging an anchor might be connected with an unpleasant memory that raises issues of self-doubt. You won’t be able to go far as long as you are in denial. Luckily, you could change everything by simply being more aware of your feelings. The dead weight can be dropped instantly once you accept your past and move on.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You want to express your needs in no uncertain terms today, and you expect others to sit up and take notice. There might even be a special someone you hope to impress, prompting you to do something impulsive that is completely out of character. This spontaneous behavior could attract the attention you seek now, but perhaps not in the way you prefer. Don’t try too hard; just be yourself and don’t worry so much about the outcome.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You want to help others now, but you prefer to do it sight unseen with the Moon visiting your 12th House of Secrets. Thankfully, you can accomplish something today that will mean a great deal to someone else without a whole lot of effort on your part. It may not seem like much to you, but your actions might bring deep healing to a loved one. Fortunately, grand gestures are not necessary; it’s your attention to the details that matters most.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

There’s no reason to take responsibility for anyone else’s crazy behavior. If someone at work does something that catches you off guard today, just try to take it all in stride. Actually, a surprise could shock you just enough to reveal a new way of doing a routine task that you hadn’t previously considered. It may seem like a reach, but, ultimately, you’re the only one standing in the way of your success.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your focus is being redirected toward others now while the Sun sextiles unpredictable Uranus in your 7th House of Relationships. You probably don’t mind a bit of anonymity, but it may be time to examine your insecurities if you’re having trouble with a lack of attention. Luckily, you could be more successful by using your talents to help someone else. There’s no need to be concerned if you don’t get the credit you deserve today; the spotlight will return to you soon enough.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might feel stuck by your previous commitments and there isn’t an easy way out now. You are willing to resign yourself to do what you said you would, even if you’re uncomfortable with the situation that has developed. Thankfully, everything can flip in an instant as an ingenious idea lights up your brain like a bolt of lightning. Prepare for positive change with cheerful optimism since your attitude can really make a big difference.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It may be difficult to fit into the standard box of a traditional relationship now as you’re pulled into your own world of unique feelings. Don’t be too self-judgmental because you have something very special to offer, and anyone close to you probably already knows this. If others can appreciate you for who you are, it should all work out — but first, you must learn to love yourself.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

The moody Cancer Moon in your 7th House of Partners places you in direct touch with your feelings by attracting highly emotional people into your orbit today. You often avoid revealing your vulnerability, but you might feel destabilized enough now to open up to someone you trust. Be willing to learn more about your own inner workings by tackling a tough issue. Thankfully, a difficult situation can rapidly change into a more pleasant one if you roll with the incoming waves.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might be afraid that you’re headed for a major conflict now, when everything suddenly improves. Don’t try to control anyone’s behavior because your fear of a negative outcome could actually bring it into manifestation. Thankfully, you can sidestep an unnecessary dispute today if you remember that arguing won’t help you get any closer to your goals. Solve your current problem within your brilliant imagination before trying to affect positive change on the outside. The solution is within your mind’s grasp.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be entirely safe jumping into the unknown today as long as you believe that everything will work out fine. Fortunately, you will likely have all the support you need now if you don’t lose sight of what’s most critical. However, your creative visualizations can only get you so far. The power of positive thought still needs to be reinforced with a concrete plan and solid effort.

Calendar of the Sun for January 16th

Calendar of the Sun

16 Wolfmonath

Muspellheim Day: Surt’s Blot

Color: Red
Element: Fire
Altar: Upon cloth of red set a great burning brazier of fire, many red candles, and a bottle of high-proof hard liquor.
Offerings: Bring fire to sacred places. The windows should be opened for the hour before Sponde, allowing cold to penetrate into the House. Then at Sponde, the sacred fire should be lit.
Daily Meal: Hot spicy food, of any kind.

Muspellheim Invocation

In the beginning there was Ginnungagap,
The darkness ever-stretching in every direction.
Then came forth two worlds out of that darkness,
And one was the world of Fire, home to Surt the Black.
And the World of Fire touched the World of Ice,
And from that touch came the life of all the Worlds.
Hail, Master of Muspellheim,
Guardian of the Wand of Light,
Eldest of the elders, first upon the World Tree,
Primal Flame that shines in the dark,
Your soul is of the power that births universes,
Your heart is the power of the fire beneath the earth,
Your flesh is the molten stone pouring forth,
Your hands are the flame that leaps forth,
The smoke of your hair is as dark
As your sight is bright and blinding.
Hail, Master of Muspellheim,
Keeper of the Eternal Flame,
Bringer of the first red light
Into the darkness of Ginnungagap,
Bringer of the first red warmth
Into the frozen cold of Niflheim,
Melter of ice, destroyer of worlds,
Spark of hope that begins life again.
Bless us, Surt the Black, Obsidian Lord,
From birthing coals to funeral pyre.

(The liquor is poured into the fire as a libation. All come forth and take candles, and light them from the flame. Then the fire is carried into each room of the house, and the windows are closed, and the heat resumed, and all hearths relit. Fires should be fed well and burn high on this day.)

 

[Pagan Book of Hours]

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, January 13th

We may feel exhilarated today as we look toward the future and share our ideas with a wider range of people. Although the socially conscious Aquarius Moon draws us into a group, we tend to shy away from more intimate, one-on-one contacts. The Moon connects us to a matrix of feelings, yet we are currently more comfortable with emotional detachment. Aquarius is an intellectual Air sign that favors the good of everyone over individual satisfaction.

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may feel the electricity of the high-frequency Aquarius Moon that insists you move into the future. But you’re also listening to the beat of a not-so-distant drummer with a more traditional rhythm. Oddly enough, you might attempt to hold on to the past now, preventing you from freely running ahead. Thankfully, your stress dissipates if you share your dilemma with someone you trust; talking about your mixed feelings helps bring clarity to the situation.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Interactions with others may lure you into uncomfortable places today, yet you don’t want anyone to know what’s going on behind your stoic appearance. You have good reason to maintain the status quo, even if you’re currently receiving information that tempts you to make immediate changes. Acting in a restrained manner is your most sensible strategy now. Acknowledging your emotional reactions is healthy, but you don’t need to share everything you feel.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

This isn’t an easy time because the planets continue to hold your feet to the fire and your words to the law. Although you might prefer a more lighthearted approach to life, you are being constrained in ways that may make you doubt your methods. Thankfully, the freethinking Aquarius Moon offers relief today, but the deepest issues won’t be blown away by a fresh breeze. If you stop and face the music, it won’t be nearly as difficult to handle as you think.

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Intimate communications with significant others are emphasized today. You may think that you have to be very precise in what you say because people are hanging on your every word. However, your message isn’t as important now as how you deliver it. You can do your part by simply sharing what is most real for you. Just don’t try to package all your emotions into a pretty box. Showing up with an open heart is your best gift.

 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

An encounter with a close friend or family member can leave you confused, especially if others are relying on feelings more than intellect. It’s challenging because you might not have the words you need at your disposal today. Part of the problem comes from the inadequacy of language, making it tough to translate your ideas into coherent speech. Watch for non-verbal signals that tell you how you’re being received. Being subtle in your approach now may be more effective than making grand gestures.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

This is the start of a productive cycle of communication for you. Your thoughts are lighter and more speculative now. Fortunately, you’re given time to think about integrating more creativity into your daily routine. Begin now by making time to write in your journal — and then do it on a regular basis. You may be happily surprised by where this cathartic process leads you.

 

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your memories could drift back to your childhood today as you seek the original source of your current feelings. You may be certain that your emotional habits were formed at an earlier time in your life and now you want to dig up the root cause. Go ahead and begin this important research, but don’t expect fast and easy answers to your questions. Be thorough in your analysis yet allow the process to reveal the truth in good time.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Although you are being required to be more actively engaged in various forms of communication, you’re not inclined to simply fill the empty spaces with noise. You want serious interactions that have purpose and meaning. Without the reality factor fully involved, you might try to check out before the conversation is over. However, don’t judge too quickly; give things time to develop depth on their own.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

This is an odd day energetically because on one hand you’re growing excited about the future. You might even feel that your dreams are on the verge of becoming real. On the other hand, the clouds of illusion fall away as fast as you can create the lovely dreamscapes. Ultimately, you want to see things as they are now, not as you would like them to be. Keeping one foot on the ground helps you make the best of both worlds

 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your biggest dilemma now is how to stay positive while you are exploring deep in the well of pragmatic thought. But endless analysis doesn’t lead you anywhere productive; it just takes you around in circles. One strategy is to keep your calendar peppered with fun activities with friends because they will make sure you don’t slip into a state of terminal seriousness. Cautious optimism creates the best chances for progress

 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You’re probably quite moody now that the evocative Moon is back in your sign. However, this monthly lunar visit isn’t just about your rapidly changing feelings; it’s about making contact with your soul’s purpose. Explore your imagination as four planets settle into your 12th House of Spirituality. Don’t be afraid to let go and fall into your own dreams. You’ll wake up stronger and happier if you take this metaphysical journey with an adventurous attitude.

 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Although your energy is just beginning to settle back down, your imagination is still stirring up exciting new recipes for life. What is usually just a touch of escapism or an idle fantasy can now take you on a very real ride. In fact, it may be difficult for you to separate the fruits of your labors from the fruit loops of your irrational fears and longings. Rely on your most sensible friends to give you the reality check that you need.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 4th

We must navigate tricky territory when the planets encourage us early in the day and then discourage us later on. An enthusiastic Mars-Jupiter trine inspires confidence; we feel like we can do anything. But self-doubt enters the picture as sweet Venus rubs strict Saturn the wrong way. Thankfully, the dualistic Libra Moon enables us to experience both positive and negative feelings while following a path that is based upon moderating the extremes.

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your ruling planet Mars is supported by buoyant Jupiter today, motivating you to act on your feelings. You feel secure enough to express emotions that would normally make you feel uncomfortably vulnerable. Although your current zest for life may be contagious, you might grow more circumspect toward the evening. Respecting established boundaries now prevents you from having to reconsider your radical approach later on.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your key planet Venus forms a stressful aspect to somber Saturn tonight, reminding you that common sense will ultimately overcome your enthusiasm. However, don’t let your self-restraint kick into action too early in the day or you may miss the other planetary excitement bubbling around you. Starting a new project is a good idea as long as you’re willing to follow through with sincere effort after the initial buzz wears off.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

At first everyone seems to be having a fine time, but you can see beneath the surface and the atmosphere isn’t as copacetic as it appears. It isn’t your style to rain on someone else’s parade, yet the responsibility may fall on you to be the one to issue a reality check. Nevertheless, there’s no reason to approach the situation with negativity. Express your thoughts as kindly as possible and then let go of your attachment to what happens next.

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You feel the power of love today but you may not reveal your true passion, especially if the thought of expressing your desires makes you uncomfortable. Although you don’t like being emotionally vulnerable on a regular basis, there’s no need to let your irrational fears stand in the way of a potentially lovely experience. Instead of trying to control the process, just share what’s in your heart without expecting anything in return.

 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although there are many excellent reasons to work in partnership now, be certain you have all the facts at your disposal before you make faulty assumptions. It’s tempting to overlook something you don’t want to know, but it’s better to be rational and have a solid handle on reality today. Ironically, acknowledging the weight of responsibility opens the doors for more pleasurable times. Do the right thing when it comes to matters of the heart and the rewards will follow.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You feel like you have an inexhaustible supply of energy today, prompting you to reach for the stars. Fortunately, harmonious trines to auspicious Jupiter in your 10th House of Status suggest that you could make a lot of progress toward your career objectives now. There’s nothing wrong with setting ambitious goals as long as you’re willing to earn your success gradually by working harder than everyone else.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You feel like you have an inexhaustible supply of energy today, prompting you to reach for the stars. Fortunately, harmonious trines to auspicious Jupiter in your 10th House of Status suggest that you could make a lot of progress toward your career objectives now. There’s nothing wrong with setting ambitious goals as long as you’re willing to earn your success gradually by working harder than everyone else.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Sink into your own feelings today as energetic Mars activates your 4th House of Emotional Security. Your current optimism might inspire others; however a slight case of self-doubt could gnaw away at your confidence. This negativity may just be a passing thought if you are flexible in your thinking. Once you realize the source of your anxiety, you can easily move past it and refocus on the opportunities at hand

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your ruling planet Jupiter is a key player in today’s expressive cosmic configuration, pulling you head-first into the realm of relationships. Be careful about going overboard with your enthusiasm, especially if you are using it to cover a deeper concern. Finding a healthy balance between the adrenaline rush of reckless abandon and the dutiful routine of emotional responsibility isn’t easy, but well worth the trouble.

 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Demonstrating your competence at work is effortless today because everything seems to be going your way. Unfortunately, you may be so sure of yourself now that you take the path of least resistance rather than doing a job in your typically thorough manner. However, you could find yourself in trouble quickly unless you pay attention to all the little details. You can let your hair down and relax once you’ve fulfilled your current obligations, but not a moment sooner.

 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Jovial Jupiter is harmonizing with irrepressible Mars in your 1st House of Personality today, pushing your exuberance to the surface. Everyone can see that you’re putting your best foot forward, but you may not feel quite as optimistic as you appear. You have legitimate concerns about the actions of others; but instead of wasting your energy making judgments about someone else, change your own thinking. No one else’s behavior needs to negatively impact your day, unless you let it.

 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your imagination is often a path for escape, yet today you can dream your way to success as long as you’re willing to cooperate with others on the job. Even if you’re tempted to withdraw from social interaction, push past your resistance and reach out to your co-workers now. Instead of worrying about what anyone else thinks about your contribution, just show up and be yourself. You may be happily surprised with the positive reinforcement you receive in return.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, December 31st

We may be eager to celebrate the New Year with fun and frivolity now that the Moon is visiting playful Leo. But expressing our holiday spirit at a party won’t tell the whole story today because rational Mercury enters serious Capricorn this morning. Meanwhile, assertive Mars forms an anxious alignment with sensual Venus, encouraging us to ask for what we want. However, we’re interested now in meaningful discussions about issues of substance.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you want everyone to see that you are doing the right thing these days, demonstrating your good intentions can be quite challenging at times. Part of the problem is that you would rather be enjoying yourself than fulfilling previous obligations. Accepting your current place in the world isn’t easy if it involves hard work; nevertheless, it’s what you must do now. Playtime might just have to wait until after you prove yourself worthy.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You know what it takes to be practical today, but you don’t really feel like doing it. Ultimately, your most workable strategy now starts with being aware of the divergent forces that are pulling you in different directions. Your natural desire to simplify your life could win out over an unnecessary emotional display, even if you want everyone to know what’s on your mind. Remember, acting with maturity and patience will bring you more happiness than expecting others to cater to your needs.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

It seems like you are dramatically running from one task to the next, but you may not be as busy as you appear. Your hectic pace is part of a strategy that lets others know they shouldn’t ask more from you now. Unfortunately, they might not understand and make additional demands on your time, anyhow. Try a direct approach and just say you cannot take on anything else. Your true friends will appreciate your honesty and respect your limits.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Even if you are usually fiscally cautious, it’s all too easy to forget budgetary restraints during the holiday season. Nevertheless, you might want to demonstrate that you are responsible with your money today, especially if someone has recently criticized your spending habits. Keep in mind that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to feel good about yourself. Bringing in the New Year with friends or family could be all you need to lift your spirits.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be quite moody now that the sensitive Moon is in your sign. You could even swing from being very upbeat to down and out in just a few minutes today. But don’t take decisive action based upon your emotions, for they will continue to shift throughout the day. Enjoy the buoyant feelings while they last, but give them time to come to rest before making any choices that have permanent consequences.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might choose to downplay your confidence now because you believe it’s out of place in the current situation. Although compensating for your hidden optimism by acting with cool restraint is one tactic, consider the positive impact you might have on others by offering them a ray of hope, instead. There’s no need to go over the top, but, at least, take a risk by spreading light instead of fear.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your kindness might win over a previous enemy, yet you could make matters worse if you are insincere. Friendly Venus, your ruling planet, is currently caught in a web of words and the more you say, the farther away from the truth you get. Although a magnanimous gesture may have a positive effect if you are well intended, don’t attempt to explain your behavior. Verbalizing your feelings now only detracts from the clarity of your actions.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Coming to the aid of those who look up to you sounds like a good idea, but your actions may not be fully appreciated now. Instead of expecting to be admired in the spotlight, try helping someone today without even being noticed. It’s not about recognition, even if it’s well deserved; it’s about touching the hearts of those who need it most.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’s party time for you today, but at least you have the good sense to realize that the fun times won’t last forever. You’re eager to create a memorable event, whether on your own or in collaboration with others. But don’t be disappointed if everything doesn’t play out according to your best-case fantasy since there could be some unexpected last minute changes. There’s no need to exert too much control because the new scenario could be even better than your imagined one.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You have probably experienced your share of intense drama this holiday season with the willful Sun’s connection to shadowy Pluto. Thankfully, the energy begins to lighten up today, indicating that the tide is changing in your favor. But instead of looking back and analyzing what has happened, shift your attention toward the future. Utilize your current creativity to visualize the year ahead. Paint in broad strokes and fill in the rest of the details later.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The fiery Leo Moon is traveling through your 7th House of Others, tugging on your relationship axis today. You may be lured into discussions about what you want, but your desires might not fit into someone else’s expectations. Luckily, you know how to detach yourself from an overly emotional conversation. Don’t waste energy trying to justify your actions; convoluted rationalizations will only further complicate your life. Let your actions speak for your heart.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Trust your instincts when it comes to doing what makes the most sense today, even if it’s counter to your logical analysis. You’re receiving instructions directly from your subconscious now and it isn’t necessary to understand the reasons for your current decisions. Your intuition is your greatest ally; just follow your hunches and don’t forget to enjoy the journey along the way.

Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, December 30th

We want to demonstrate our love today because the Moon enters heartfelt Leo at 2:45 am EST, but positive intentions only take us so far. Fortunately, exploring hidden feelings reveals buried treasure as the radiant Sun aligns with transformational Pluto and realistic Saturn. If we avoid our fears, we’ll shadowbox with an unknown enemy. But shining the light of awareness into the dark can prevent us from being swept up in the current turmoil.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re driven to set personal goals for the year ahead, without worrying about helping anyone else. You may incorrectly believe that the possibility of your success could be jeopardized if others also have a chance of succeeding. However, this faulty assumption comes from your outdated belief in a competitive model where there are winners and losers. Thankfully, reaching your destination is easier now when everyone works together for the common good.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your drive for adventure could become irrepressible as the Sun conjuncts unrelenting Pluto in your 9th House of Big Ideas. Your current sense of urgency won’t likely disappear even if you try to relax. Consider how to satisfy your needs without upsetting your life instead of denying your current wanderlust. Fortunately, enrolling in a course of study expands your mind without distracting you with unrealistic dreams.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Steer clear of discussions about risky investments of time or money today while the Sun-Pluto conjunction rattles your 8th House of Shared Resources. You might believe that you will come out on top if you simply do your research. But flimsy schemes that promise fast fortunes should be avoided. Improving your position through a clever venture sounds eCancer Horoscope

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might begin a new diet today, even if much of the world is happily indulging in holiday feasts. However, you’re not in your usual party spirit now because you’re thinking about cleaning up your act. It’s not that you want to have less fun; you just know that you need to improve your health and you’re highly motivated to do something about it. Relax; enjoying the magic of the season won’t make you forget your long-term goals.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The intense Sun-Pluto conjunction in your 4th House of Emotional Security distracts you from your career-related goals. However, you must manage the complexity of the current situation to realize your fullest potential. Sidestepping an interpersonal issue isn’t a viable choice today because your frustration could lead to a crisis. Bringing secrets out into the open might be just the preventative measure you need.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re accustomed to high levels of intensity in your relationships, but occasionally avoidance is smarter than direct confrontation. Unfortunately, you can’t dance around your wounded feelings today, even if you are not comfortable talking about them. Luckily, your prospects for real healing improve once your old hurts are acknowledged and shared with someone you trust.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may be upset today if someone just assumes that your possessions are for communal property. You could overreact and even grow hostile if what you own feels like an extension of your identity. However, your current attachment to your toys isn’t very sensible. If you can’t share what you have now, then you probably shouldn’t be playing with others. Setting clear boundaries is one thing, but there’s no reason to be unkind to those around you.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A passionate Sun-Pluto conjunction occurs in your 1st House of Self, giving you an apparently endless supply of energy. But feeling all that power is a double-edged sword today, for you may be driven by psychological forces that you don’t understand. One strategy for handling your current intensity is to channel your intentions in a constructive manner. For example, writing down your goals and then stating them aloud is the first step to fulfilling your dreams.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You want to care for someone special today, but it might not be such a good idea if you haven’t been asked to help. An emotionally awkward situation could develop if you assist others who do not want your interference. If anyone refuses your aid now, just be gracious and politely wish them well. Don’t hold on to feelings of rejection or all your good intentions will be for naught.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, December 29th

It’s difficult to make up our minds today because intense emotions are pulling us in different directions. On one hand, the nurturing Cancer Moon motivates us to draw our energy inward to focus on home and family. On the other hand, an exuberant Sun-Jupiter quincunx encourages us to question old assumptions that limit our expression. Meanwhile, we can feel the powerful rumblings of tomorrow’s Sun-Pluto conjunction. Love, not fear, will lead us to success.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you might try to convince yourself that you’re free from emotional attachments, there’s a problem with this approach today. Little events throughout the day remind you of how much you love your friends and family. Ultimately, it’s your choice; you could easily avoid upsetting your security by reining in your unrestrained behavior. However, you may alienate others if you hide your feelings. Sharing your uncertainty before you become annoyed can relieve the building tension.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

A clash with a good friend could be circumvented today, but it will take some serious restraint on your part. You might feel as if someone is baiting you, but it’s actually your own worries that create the biggest problems now. Rather than blaming anyone else for your lack of confidence, consider what you can do to boost your self-esteem. Remember, change won’t happen overnight but you have to start somewhere.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You might have a challenging time explaining your feelings today because it’s easier to just keep them to yourself. Even if you know what you want to say, the words just don’t come out the way that you think them. Try not to jump around from one subject to another now or you will leave others in a state of confusion. However, telling your story succinctly and then following through with direct action gives the positive impression you wish to project.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You may be hypersensitive today with the evocative Moon back in your sign. But being around too many people can be overwhelming now and you’re tempted to retreat in order to honor your own need for boundaries. Unfortunately, you might not be able to get out of a social obligation. Instead of focusing on your annoyance, just postpone your quiet time until things settle down. You could be pleasantly surprised at how good you end up feeling by the end of the day.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You realize the necessity of making changes to your daily routine, but you might not understand just yet how big this shift will be. Don’t expect everything to happen right away, since there are circumstances beyond your control that must play out before you can take your next step. Thankfully, you’re willing to do whatever needs to be done in order to get through this transition. Be patient; there’s a light at the end of the tunnel

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You want to break free at any cost, especially if you feel as if you’re stuck in an unchangeable situation. You are ready for action since you’ve already spent enough time contemplating all your options. Unfortunately, forcing progress today is not recommended because the security-conscious Cancer Moon is visiting your 11th House of Long-Term Goals. Be wise and maintain the status quo for a little while longer. Trust your intuition; you’ll know when the time is right to make your move.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You could be feeling a bit uneasy today without knowing why you can’t settle down. Your free-floating anxiety may not be connected to any one event; it might be related to a more complex set of emotions. Don’t look for a quick fix because that will only put off the inevitable for a few days. Instead, take your time to find healthy ways to relax even in times of stress. Practicing meditation, laughing with your friends, or just dancing around when no one is watching can help lighten your heart.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re tempted to dig in your heels and hold out for exactly what you want, but the end game of your current strategy isn’t dependent on your stubbornness. In fact, your lack of flexibility complicates things and moves you even farther away from your ultimate destination. Rather than being so sure of yourself, remain open to compromise now. Flowing with the give-and-take helps you feel good about the situation and increases your chances for success.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Although you could be eager to embark on your next great journey, it may be discouraging to admit you haven’t even bought a ticket yet. Unfortunately, there are too many demands on your time now for you to think that you can leave on the spur of the moment. Be patient and don’t let go of your dreams; there’s still time to work out all the details before you have to choose your destination.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your current uncertainty could put you in a more conservative frame of mind, prompting you to question your ability to reach your long-term goals. But don’t give up too soon because you might not have all the facts at your disposal. Although you may feel the pressure to make a serious career decision today, it’s smarter to delay your final choice until after the New Year, if possible.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are thrilled about the possibilities ahead, but too much optimism may inspire you to act impulsively. This is no time for foolish obstinacy because it only amplifies the stress. It’s wiser to acknowledge your enthusiasm while practicing self-restraint. Instead of thinking you can simply overpower the obstacles you face, try to learn what valuable lessons they have to teach you now.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You’re still processing a lot of information that recently came into your awareness, but it’s not easy to integrate so much data all at once. Nevertheless, you might feel as if a deadline is quickly approaching. Unfortunately, if you try to move too fast, you could end up hitting a wall. Ask a trusted friend for help today, so you have someone else to listen to your story. Any feedback you receive at this time can move you closer to your desired destination.

Your Horoscopes for Thursday, December 20th

Our actions really speak louder than words today, since we may start a new project before telling anyone about our intentions. The Moon’s entry into just-do-it Aries at 2:43 am EST, combined with several planets in fiery Sagittarius, raises the overall level of enthusiasm. But we might underestimate the size of a task now that grandiose Jupiter forms a complex quincunx with powerful Pluto. Strength of conviction is on our side but stamina is not.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may be fired up, yet you could grow overly excited about the wrong things today. Your reactions might even be more impulsive than usual now that the Moon is back in your enterprising sign for a couple of days. Be particularly cautious if a friend brings you an opportunity that’s too good to refuse. See how you feel about it in a day or two before making a final commitment. In the meantime, do your homework so you know what you’re getting into with your eyes wide open

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might actually convince yourself that you can keep your emotions hidden today, but they may leak out in ways you don’t even notice. Others see through your casual attempts to play it cool now, so don’t make matters worse by denying your feelings. Showing your vulnerability by telling someone your dreams could deepen your connection if you don’t expect anything in return.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

This is a great day to pursue a moneymaking idea as long as you don’t try to take on the project all by yourself. Forging a working relationship with a powerful partner improves your chances for success. Remember, it’s perfectly acceptable to lean on others for support and encouragement in the beginning. Thankfully, you shouldn’t have to push very hard now before your friends pony up and give you what you need.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s wise to proceed slowly today because you could quickly talk yourself into revealing more than you intend. Normally, you’re inclined to keep your desires private unless you feel very secure. However, you’re in a gambling mood now and may be ready to risk rejection for the sake of love. Take a chance, but don’t aim so high that you will be disappointed no matter what happens.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Reaching your destination is an uphill battle today because the serious life issues and corresponding responsibilities have not gone away. In theory, you’re ready to leave with nearly anyone who has an idea for spontaneous fun. But in pragmatic terms escape isn’t so simple. Differentiating between a sensible plan and an idealistic dream can be the difference now between success and failure.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may feel as if you’re ready to strike out on your own and do something exciting today, yet the best love and support come to you from the closest quarters. Your greatest admirer might be a family member or someone so close to you that you don’t even see the treasure right in front of you. Choose the sweetness of familiarity for now over the potential thrills of the unknown.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might think that you can enjoy whatever you are doing today; however, you may quickly grow weary with any sort of repetitive work. Although your heightened restlessness could pleasantly surprise you, don’t be seduced into thinking that this temporary phase will last. Avoid making long-term commitments until a more sensible outlook prevails tomorrow.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Find a different way to do your routine jobs today because the Moon joins unpredictable Aries in your 6th House of Details. But don’t be overly concerned if a new method doesn’t work out as you expect; wasting some time now is a small price to pay for your mental health. Remember, if you try enough alternatives, one of them just might prove to be the timesaver you are seeking.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Turning on the charm today increases your ability to get away with a bit of mischief. However, it isn’t smart to push limits or people may realize that your emotional veneer isn’t sincere. You might be able to fool everyone for a while, but you won’t get away with intentional deception. Be honest and be yourself instead of attempting to bend the odds in your favor.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You cannot tell your friends and co-workers what you want today because it might alienate them and possibly make your goals less attainable. However, keeping your intentions quiet sends a signal to others that encourages them to share less, too. This is a delicate moment, since no one has all the facts necessary to make the right choice now. Reserve your final decision until you have more information at your disposal.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may feel energetically scattered today and might take on a busier schedule than necessary. Although you can derive joy from all the distractions, frustration will set in if you actually try to complete something you have started. It helps to recognize that nothing is as simple as it appears now. Avoid making commitments to finish anything until tomorrow to give yourself a little bit of breathing room.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

An innovative way to tackle an old money problem is just what you need today to break out of a rut. Your current impatience with finding a solution only makes matters worse. However, a change of attitude has an immediate positive impact on your life in ways that you cannot yet imagine. Simply acknowledging the potential abundance of the universe may be enough to lessen the financial pressure, even if nothing else is different than it was in the past.
