Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, December 29th
A partner may be a little too impatient or even aggressive in stance today, dear Aries, and then brood or withhold later today! Of course, somewhere in between would be ideal, but a little difficult to get there, especially as Mercury and Mars challenge one another, and with Mars your ruler, irritation is likely. Nevertheless, you can also choose to use frustrations as motivators to work on something on your own or to set your own pace, and you might find you thoroughly enjoy the time you take to do so.
There is a tendency to rush, push, and nitpick today, dear Taurus, with a Mercury-Mars conflict in the first half of the day. Chances are that a difference of opinion can bother you more than it would normally because you feel rushed in other areas of life. Try to pull back on the pressure and don’t overload yourself with things to do. With the Moon entering your romance and “play” sector this afternoon, you are likely to feel re-energized. It’s a time for spontaneity and enjoyment, but a Venus-Pluto conflict late tonight can point to a love dilemma, suspicion, or concern.
This morning, remember the old adage that haste makes waste, dear Gemini. Be particularly careful when it comes to expressing yourself with a lover or with someone about an intimate or tricky matter. One could be playful and teasing while the other can be taking things quite seriously. Impatience can be an issue now. You might prefer to stick to familiar settings from afternoon forward as the Moon moves into your home and family sector. Life slows down a touch, but moods can still be quite sensitive.
Watch carefully for a tendency to want to do too much, too fast in the first half of the day, dear Cancer. It’s a little too easy to become irritated, particularly with a partner or family member who may be disagreeable or provoking. Differences of opinion might be taken too personally now. The Moon moves into your communications sector this afternoon, and you tend to crave intellectual stimulation and change. Tonight’s Venus-Pluto challenge can incline others to be a little secretive or withholding.
While you should definitely watch for impatience in the first half of the day, dear Leo, the Moon is in your sign and you are bound to get noticed. You might feel that you can benefit from asserting yourself, but there can be hasty conclusions drawn now, as well as a tendency to speak too harshly, so watch for this. You may be sensitive to offhand remarks as well, but keep in mind that it’s all too easy to speak before thinking this morning, and tonight, to keep things to oneself and brood. The Moon moves into your solar second house this afternoon, which can certainly help settle emotions and increase patience.
Take extra care driving, getting around, drawing conclusions, and communicating today, dear Virgo, as there can be a tendency to be impatient and short with others, without intending to offend. The Moon moves into your sign this afternoon, and emotions awaken. You are noticed more than you have been in the last couple of days, and if you aren’t getting the attention you crave, you’re more likely to seek it out. Relations with lovers or possibly children might be a little strained today. Try not to give in to pressure that you need to pay an arm and a leg to enjoy yourself, as there are plenty of activities that are free or near-free that you can enjoy with people you love.
This morning, be careful that you don’t unintentionally mislead others by making an error of omission or by overstating, no matter how good your intentions, dear Libra. Watch also for impatience – the pace can be intense but tripping up is more likely if you rush through things. It may very well be that you’re putting too much pressure on yourself. Pressure is everywhere and you need to concentrate on only the most important tasks instead of spreading yourself too thin today. If you are able to narrow your focus sufficiently, you can get through just fine but it will take some effort. Keep the faith as pressures will pass quickly. Avoid communicating in a way that is construed as sarcastic later today.
Wherever you go today, dear Cancer, you’re sure to get noticed. This is because the Moon is transiting the most visible and notable area of your chart today. You might find others are a little too aggressive about their needs today, dear Scorpio. While this can be frustrating, you might appreciate in retrospect towards the end of the day when the tendency is to brood! Neither way is healthy, and ideally, you’ll avoid either extreme and approach others directly without being pushy. Rise above others’ faux pas. The people you want to notice you don’t seem to, and the people you don’t want to look your way, do. It’s just one of those days. Don’t expect others to read your mind, even if you think the signals you’re giving them are loud and clear. Ask for what you want instead, or wait until a better day to go after what you want.
You can find yourself in a bit of a tizzy in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, and turning to others for a sense of stability could be a lesson in frustration. Insecurities can breed all sorts of conflict if left to grow. Identify the root problem and start there, but if you notice unresponsiveness or defensiveness from others, wait for a better day to tackle major issues, as blockages are very likely to be felt right now. People seem to either be spilling too much or keeping far too much to themselves.
Demands from others may seem to be flying at you from all directions in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, and then later today, you may feel that others keeping things from you. Fortunately you are more than capable of handling them. Do what you can to take short breaks in order to get centered if you start to feel worn down. The Moon’s move into your solar sector of spirit and adventure helps to lift you above the petty problems of the day.
Interactions with others can be a little edgy today, dear Aquarius, and as a result, you’ll find that you need to handle people with extra care and sensitivity. Others seem to be a little more demanding or impatient than usual, but this doesn’t have to spoil your day. As the day advances, the Moon moves into your strategic, introspective, and observant solar eighth house, and you’re more inclined to slow down and think before you speak. You’ll be able to easily spot any attempts at manipulation you encounter later today. Keep interactions above board, but feel free to keep some things to yourself for safekeeping.
A tense aspect between Mercury and Mars can stimulate impatience and a fast pace this morning, dear Pisces, but consider that you may be putting too much pressure on yourself (and possibly others) to do things quickly. Pay extra attention to what you say, and be especially cautious getting from one place to another. As the day advances, you can become especially aware of imbalance of power in your interactions, and perhaps more sensitive than usual to any power plays that might surface.
