Emotional currents intensify as we approach tomorrow’s powerful Sun-Pluto opposition. However, our passions run into resistance from the stern Moon-Saturn square this morning and a constrictive Sun-Saturn alignment late tonight. Meanwhile, an enthusiastic Mars-Jupiter dance encourages us to respond in a positive manner. The Moon’s shift into intuitive Pisces at 10:22 am EDT drives home the realization that there’s more going on than meets the eye.
You have too many options to choose from today because you are not restrained by reality. Although your fantasies might seem like pipe dreams to others, you’re capable of extraordinary accomplishments now if you can focus on your ambitions. Nevertheless, it’s prudent to maintain a practical perspective in spite of your penchant for daydreaming. Keeping your feet on the ground gives you the necessary traction to reach for the stars.
Your desires are pulling you into new territory while your common sense holds you in your current position. You’re motivated by your innate need for emotional security, but you are increasingly intrigued by the distant horizon. Even if you choose to explore the unknown today, don’t abandon your present routine, especially if someone is counting on you. Luckily, there’s no reason to turn your life upside down in order to make substantial progress toward the future. Act strategically and the adventure awaits.
You’re naturally talented at assimilating information and turning it to your advantage. However, it’s not advisable to grow too attached to thinking your way through every problem because logic is a trap of its own. Don’t rely solely on rational analysis now; instead, take a different path into your future by embracing your intuition. Sometimes, having faith in the process is more useful than having all the facts. Follow your intuition and everything will be alright.
You are quick to retreat into your fantasies today as your thoughts drift into an imaginary dimension where you are no longer bound by facts. Although everything is possible in your imagination, you still can’t avoid close friends and relatives who keep drawing you back to the present moment, making it impossible for you to fully escape. Accept that you can live in two worlds now while you seek balance between objective circumstances and your subjective inner life. Juggling your dreams with your obligations is a trick you must master.
Your cool demeanor begins to fade today as you’re lured into deeper emotional realms. Although your interpersonal relationships can be a source of concern, you don’t need to let your uncertainty lead you down a path of self-doubt. Tossing out your old assumptions gives you a new lease on life. But don’t make any significant changes yet; instead, be content with integrating your current lessons into what you already know. Everyone is a student when it comes to matters of the heart.
You are highly motivated to improve your daily regimen now, but could get sidetracked worrying about the impact your changes might have on others. Obviously, being sensitive to those closest to you is important. Instead of just imagining the consequences of your actions, make a list of all the pros and cons. Preemptively discussing the most significant potential problems now may be enough to minimize any possible negativity before it manifests. A stitch in time saves nine.
You may be bewildered about which chores you should do today, leading you to believe there’s more to life now than finishing tasks. If you were planning on completing a project around the house, you suddenly could change your mind and decide that it’s more critical to give yourself a day off. If you have trouble concentrating, try a bit of physical exercise to expend your excess energy before you settle down to work. Ultimately, if you can slip into a creative flow and be productive in some way, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to get back on track.
The intensity in your relationships continues to mellow, but you still can’t totally control all your reactions to what happens in your immediate environment. Although you’re not looking for a fight, you don’t want to hide the facts as you see them, either. Unfortunately, your unwillingness to play games now could make you seem less compassionate. Don’t judge yourself harshly if you prefer nothing but the truth. Be kind; your uncensored honesty is appreciated more than you know.
You can’t help but second-guess a recent decision, as today’s events test your ability to maintain your integrity. You might know what’s right in your heart, even if it doesn’t necessarily agree with your logical conclusion. Making a choice may be particularly stressful now. However, going along with the majority is the right thing to do if you feel like part of the family or a valuable member of the group. Determine what choice you can live with and then stick with it, no matter what.
Although you might think you’re being sensitive to the needs of others now, you could railroad right over their protests without even realizing it. The spacey Pisces Moon visits your 3rd House of Communication this weekend, encouraging you to ramble on about your plans for the future. Conversations are fine, but all talk without follow-through doesn’t really get you anywhere. It’s great if you are eager to share your thoughts as long as you know when it’s wise to just get to work.
You’re quite clever when it comes to communicating your ideas efficiently, but don’t put too much stock in finding a verbal solution to a social situation today. Your willingness to present a softer and gentler side of your personality now is a mixed blessing, for it also allows you to evade an important issue by dancing around it. Acknowledging your vulnerability is more admirable than acting like a know-it-all. When you admit that you don’t have all the answers, then others feel like they have something constructive to offer you for a change.
Your sensitive nature is evident in all your interactions now that the reflective Moon has returned to your emotional sign. However, you may be so in touch with your dreams today that you’re also acutely aware of the gulf between your current circumstances and your ideal life. Practicing random acts of kindness dispels discouragement and enables you to keep your heart open. As you make a plan to help others, remember that you’re also choosing your future. Thankfully, the choice is all yours.
On a Pisces Moon, think foot massage. Soak your soles in a calming lavender bath. Feet are ruled by Pisces; maybe it’s the way they cushion against the hard ground. Let yourself drift and dream today. Forget that pressured list in your day planner; don’t bother with a watch. You’ll accomplish more by letting your intuition guide you from this to that. Mood enhancers are films, music and poetry. But watch the spaced-out bag boy at the supermarket; he’s likely to leave your ice cream on the checkout stand. Steer clear of whiners and martyrs. There’s moisture in the air-fog, mist, tears. Better to convert self-pity or sentimentality into a broader compassion for the world. And if you’ve let your meditation practice lapse, this is a great Moon to return. Find the window that opens to your one-ness with all.
The wee hours of the morning are filled with unsettling dreams as the Sun and Moon align with erratic Uranus, firing up our nerves. Nevertheless, the energy begins to settle down once the electric Aquarius Moon shifts into emotional Pisces at 8:18 am EDT. The Moon’s square to the curious Gemini Sun has us wondering how our feelings influence our thoughts. However, by evening, a surreal Moon-Neptune connection assures us that imagination rules.
You might be enamored with your dreams these days, but you’re also acutely aware that there’s more to life than your fantasies with so many incomplete projects demanding your attention. Even if you postpone a deadline for another day or two, you can’t escape thinking about the work you have yet to finish. Unfortunately, worrying in advance only creates stress unless you’re ready to do something about it now. Don’t put off for tomorrow anything that you can do today.
Your down-to-earth reliability earns the respect of your associates, especially if you make a decision today and stand by it. Even if your current ideas are unpopular, your serious demeanor persuades others to consider your point of view because they realize how much thought has gone into your opinion. Nevertheless, picking one solution over another is tricky business now, so give yourself permission to change your mind later on if you are so inclined.
You can’t easily calm your wild thoughts because you’re busy analyzing every possible repercussion to each and everything you’re doing today. Your previous optimism may be flagging because a special opportunity isn’t looking quite as appealing now. Intuitively, you know that once you make up your mind you won’t be able to go back and undo your decision, so take all the time you need before announcing your final choice. Time is on your side even if you feel rushed in the moment.
People at work probably won’t be aware of your stress today because you’re able to keep it carefully contained. You might have a very specific notion about what you want your future to look like; however, you may think you’re not on the right track. Don’t try to talk yourself out of your dreams, even if they make your life more complicated now. Your current self-doubt will soon fade, leaving you to realize that nearly anything is possible once you put your mind to it.
You have a very unique point of view today that allows you to surprise others, especially if they expect you to remain inside a traditional box. Ironically, your perspective isn’t as radical as it seems at first; it’s just that you may overstate your position as you make your case. Although you’re quite opinionated, you still should be able to get the support you need now as long as you mix integrity with your passion. Demonstrating your willingness to engage in an open dialogue doesn’t mean you have to compromise your values.
You may have an erroneous view of your partner or coworker today that’s based on fantasy, yet you’re still able to logically justify your conclusions. Thankfully, you have an open mind and are willing to change your thinking as you learn more about the reality of the situation. Although you’re tempted to scatter your energy now, you can achieve better results if you concentrate and address the tension in a significant relationship. Resolving interpersonal dynamics allows you to find the time to pursue your other goals, too.
Instead of applying all your efforts on your tasks at work, you might wish you could kick back and take it easy today. But you may have to fulfill your responsibilities first, so don’t agree to any extra work beyond your regular routine. Your wisest strategy is to minimize your obligations so you can balance your professional duties with a bit of playful abandon. There are no either-or decisions to make now; both aspects of your life contribute to your overall satisfaction.
Last night’s brilliant breakthroughs seem to fade with the glare of the morning light. You might even be hard-pressed to remember your best thoughts unless you took the time to write them down. Don’t stress trying to recapture what’s been lost. Surrender to the intuitive Pisces Moon with the knowledge that your most solid ideas will resurface in the next few days in a more tangible form. In the meantime, intentional daydreaming enables you to keep the context for your visions alive.
Although you may need to show up at work today, you probably prefer remaining cozy in your own home while the dreamy Pisces Moon occupies your 4th House of Security. Nevertheless, once you report for duty and fulfill your obligations, you can return to your private haven, turn off the phone and declare temporary independence from the outside world. For someone who is often the life of the party, hiding out might just be your secret guilty pleasure now.
There are many small choices to be made in the course of your regular routine today. However, an emotional gulf between you and others may leave you feeling a bit detached and a little lost as the reflective Moon merges with indecisive Neptune in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment. Even if you say all the right inspirational things, you still might think you’re a fraud because you don’t see yourself clearly now. Thankfully, your carefully chosen words can be even more effective if you actually believe in them yourself.
You are full of hope that springs from being true to your values today as the Moon joins idealistic Neptune. But you might also be fearful that your efforts won’t be sufficient to improve the current situation. Don’t waste precious time doubting your contribution. Transform the energy by focusing on the positive things you can do, instead. Global change is not likely to happen with just the extraordinary work of a few people; it will come from the combined smaller deeds of everyone. Lead by example and see who follows.
You are unable to detach yourself from the emotions of everyone around you today as the evocative Moon hooks up with spiritual Neptune in your compassionate sign. It’s nearly impossible to find the boundaries that normally separate you from all of humanity and the entire cosmos. Don’t bother trying to figure out where your thoughts and feelings are coming from now. You’re a psychic sponge for the day; revel in the wisdom that all fish live in the same sea and that individuality isn’t as important as it seems.
Conflicting emotions lead to complicated personal interactions today. Romance is favored as Venus and Mars align harmoniously, but Venus, the planet of love and money, also dynamically squares serious Saturn, isolating us from the sweet things in life. The imaginative Pisces Moon offers a temporary escape route through fantasies, but we eventually must face practical issues and take action once the Moon shifts into assertive Aries at 9:53 pm EDT.
You wake up and are out the door today before you even know your exact destination. But later on you may feel the need to pull back and reassess your direction. You intuitively know that something isn’t quite right and you are correct to trust your instincts now. It’s okay to socially retreat until you are ready for more involvement. Don’t make a big deal about your change of heart; just let everyone know your current uncertainty won’t last long and you’ll be back to your old self before they even know it.
Paradoxically, you may be acting in a confident manner today while being hesitant at the same time. Your key planet Venus is under tense pressure from austere Saturn, and you might temporarily feel quite alone, even undeserving of love. Thankfully, Venus also forms a sweet trine to energetic Mars, empowering you to overcome your self-doubt. Switching your focus to others and spending some time with your friends ultimately helps you feel better about yourself.
An uncomfortable feeling may be gnawing away at the edge of your awareness today and you cannot shake it off. Although you’re often quite lighthearted, relationship dynamics might not seem in sync now. You don’t feel as if you fit in the way you usually do, and being alienated on your home turf isn’t fun. It seems like the problem is external, but closer analysis could reveal that the emotional discord is connected to your fears. A change in your attitude can improve the chemistry quicker than you think.
You might want someone’s shoulder to lean on today, but you may not be completely satisfied with the support you receive. There’s no need to put on a smiley face if you’re not feeling it. However, initiating an inner dialogue with your own subconscious can help to uncover the source of your loneliness. Establishing temporary boundaries around your heart protects you from being hurt, but withdrawing emotionally could be isolating. Take care of your needs without shutting down your heart in the name of fear.
The dynamics of a partnership seem so good and feel so bad all at the very same time. Circumstances appear to be going your way at first, but things might not end up according to your plan. You feel as if you don’t want to be here today, but here you are, nonetheless. The good news is you are fully responsible for creating pleasure in your life. Whatever you do, don’t give up on making positive change. You may be pleasantly surprised with how quickly things turn around in just a few short days
Current responsibilities may create complications today because you can’t spend much time with those you love. Others might be getting the wrong idea as they feel a distance between you, but you’re not really trying to push them away. Nevertheless, they will likely react negatively as if you are shutting them out. Letting people know about your time constraints in advance keeps the expectations to a minimum.
You’re well-known for your ambivalence, which can make your life more difficult than necessary. Although magnetic Venus is visiting your 5th House of Love and Money, she travels through some tricky territory today. You might even want to run and hide instead of facing the music. However, making a decision can’t be forced. Thankfully, your willingness to be patient ultimately brings the satisfaction you seek.
You are entering into a period of transformation, but first there is this eye of a needle for you to squeeze through. Unfortunately, it’s not large enough for you to take all your emotional baggage with you. Although it might not feel good to leave some of your attachments behind, lightening your load puts your most intimate relationships on more solid ground. Although this is a sobering time, keep in mind it’s preparing you for something wonderful just around the corner.
Today’s recipe entails mixing two tablespoons of unbridled optimism, a heaping tablespoon of caution and a tiny dash of unpleasant memories. Shake it all up until you are really unsure of which way to go. Then, spend some time pondering whether or not a current relationship is really worth the sacrifices you are making now. Even if you’re confused, your romantic life will emerge stronger in just a day or two if you’re willing to face the truth.
You take your commitment to love quite seriously today and want to share your perspective with anyone who will listen. But the reflective Moon in your busy 3rd House of Communication can create logistical cross-currents as everyone distracts you from your agenda. Don’t change directions now; just temporarily operate on blind faith. Your unwavering devotion should bring you closer to your goals sooner than you expect.
Relationships may feel strained today because it seems unlikely that you can find the peace and quiet that you seek. Perhaps money issues have crept back into your life and place a negative spin on your personal interactions. Unfortunately, there might not be a quick and easy way out of your current dilemma. Instead of running away, face the situation with confidence. Learning to trust your instincts takes practice, but there’s no better time to start than now.
Figuring out the best course of action is tricky and you may need to proceed before you make a decision. Naturally, moving forward before you are ready is neither fun nor easy, yet it can be a life-altering experience. Ironically, Saturn creates enough resistance to act like a catalyst, temporarily pulling you into uncharted emotional depths. Luckily, you have nothing to fear and everything to gain on this magical journey.
The Moon starts off this day void in Aquarius, but Pisces Moon clocks in at 8:59AM. Learn more about advances on the cutting edge of alternative medicine as Venus forms a 45-degree tie with Chiron (11:09AM). The Moon unites with Juno in Pisces (11:32AM) and places a strong emphasis on improving love bonds. Interest grows in fashion and style. Strange forces are on the prowl over several hours due to Mercury making a potentially confusing, 45-degree contact with Neptune (12:17PM) while Mars parallels Chiron (12:24PM), the Sun forms a contra-parallel to Jupiter (23:37PM), and the Moon conjuncts far-out Neptune (2:27PM). Keep in mind that parallels and contra-parallels — tracked relative to the Celestial Equator and moving north or south — can be just as meaningful as zodiacal aspects. Overdoing a good thing can land you in hot water. Stick to arts, crafts and hobbies for entertainment and avoid major financial decisions.

The boundaries which separate us seem less real today. Although mystics throughout the ages have taught that our personal distinctions are illusory, the spiritual Pisces Moon reminds us of what happens when we confuse reality with fantasy. We must pay attention to our limits as the surreal Pisces Moon squares the indulgent Sagittarius Sun, encouraging us to reach for the stars. It’s easier to find our way home if we haven’t traveled too far.
You may be more concerned about everyone else today than you are about yourself. Obviously, wanting to help those you love is wonderful, but trying to fix everything is not healthy. Learning to respect other people’s boundaries is a huge lesson for you now because you might unconsciously ride roughshod over someone’s feelings, without even realizing it. Remember, you can be of assistance by actively listening and kindly sharing your emotions; just don’t try to run the show.
Thinking about cosmic questions that don’t have easy answers might occupy a lot of your spare time today. Searching for the meaning of life isn’t on your everyday agenda, but now it can deepen your spiritual connection. Even if you are oftentimes satisfied with simple explanations, take this opportunity to explore a more complex set of issues that go beyond finding emotional security and personal pleasure. Look within to find the solutions you seek.
An unusual turn of events might shake up your schedule, but there’s no reason not to go along for the ride. Fortunately, you are able to make good use of your toolkit of clever ideas and smooth moves, which can ease the complexity. Remember, if anything goes awry now, it’s most likely a sign of a deeper problem. Do whatever you must to extinguish any brush fires that smolder while continuing to work on cleaning up the underlying issues. The more effort you put in, the more you will receive in return.
Knowing exactly what’s appropriate today is tricky, since your emotional boundaries may still be a bit fuzzy. You could even waste time and energy lost in feelings that actually belong to someone else. Visualizing a barrier of impenetrable white light around you can be enough to reestablish a strong perimeter that keeps out the negativity and allows you to reconnect with your center.
You may be quite hopeful now about the possibilities of a new romance, yet caution is advised so you don’t overlook an important piece of the puzzle. Although no one is purposefully trying to mislead you, everything is not exactly as it seems. It’s your willingness to give others the benefit of the doubt that can create problems. A healthy dose of realism today saves you from disappointment tomorrow.
A challenging relationship issue may give you a headache today, but if you face the situation with a realistic attitude, you’ll be thankful in the long run. You could learn something crucial that helps you to see things more clearly in the days ahead. However, burying your head in the sand is not a viable strategy. Dealing with the truth that is right in front of you creates a foundation strong enough to endure the current circumstances without having to retreat. Handle the situation the best you can and don’t look back.
Maintaining a steady work pace while taking care of business is difficult today, but pushing yourself harder won’t necessarily be an efficient strategy. Try cutting yourself some slack and let your energy ebb and flow throughout the day without attempting to control it. In between short bursts of concentrated effort, make time to revel in your creative side, even if you aren’t productive for a while. Think of yourself as a metaphysical surfer; ride the waves while the surf’s up and regroup when it’s calm.
Making enough time to commune with nature or with your inner guides can turn today into a sweet memory. Even if you have responsibilities to fulfill, don’t cheat yourself out of the magic you might find by creating a bit of solitude. Thankfully, your imagination reveals unconventional solutions to mundane problems if you successfully quiet your thoughts. Giving yourself permission to be spontaneous now empowers you to move through a current roadblock. Listening to your intuition is a good place to start.
Your sound judgment pours from you so smoothly today, you may not realize how much you help someone else. You have a great deal of philosophical and spiritual wisdom to share, and this is your chance to return the generosity that others have shown you in the past. There’s no need to seek recognition or approval now; giving back to those who require assistance is its own sweet reward.
Making intelligent decisions could be tricky business today because your mind isn’t on your regular mundane concerns. You may be drifting around in your own private fantasy, instead of carefully calculating how to reach your next set of goals. Don’t try to suppress your dreams even if they seem unreachable; there are treasures waiting for your discovery within the realms of your imagination. Open the door and let them in.
You may have to deal with complicated money issues today, yet you can avert a messy problem if you face them head on as soon as they surface. Although the current situation might not seem like a significant concern in the big picture, it’s still a smart idea to consider what you could learn from exploring all your options before making an important decision. However, if your intuition tells you one thing and logic points elsewhere, go with the facts for now.
You are happily splashing around in your own watery element today and are able to dive deeper into your dreams if you so choose. This can be a most luxurious time if you are in a positive state of mind. But if you are even mildly depressed, you could find yourself drowning in your own tears. Don’t be afraid to talk about your fears with a trusted friend. The first step to getting help is asking for it. Remember, Fish are most content when they are swimming in a school of like-minded souls.
Our dreams supply the fuel to turn fantasies into reality as today’s imaginative Pisces Moon aligns with ambitious Saturn. On the other hand, logical Mercury forms anxious aspects with rebellious Uranus and opportunistic Jupiter, encouraging us to break free from routine. However, once the Sun shifts into thoughtful Virgo at 7:01 pm EDT, we are more likely to analyze a situation until we know all the facts than to gamble our future on a whim.
Your fantasy world is expanding now as you run each possibility through your imagination. However, no one realizes what you are experiencing because your appearance may remain calm and collected. These little daydreams are yours and yours alone. Stay aware of your feelings while you continue to communicate in a restrained and logical manner. Keep up your normal routine, and you should be able to get away with your inner journeying without anyone getting on your case.
Although important people may enter your life now and energize you, they might also bring a bit of disruption. Stay present when responding to others, for your common sense could actually save the day. Don’t be afraid to say no; trust your instincts even if you have to stir up some muddy waters in the process. Going against the flow today can prevent a relationship from becoming stagnant.
It’s challenging to get your head and your heart working in sync toward the same goals today. Somehow, it seemed simpler in the past to align with your higher self. However, you can benefit by going back and reassessing your priorities because your careful analysis falls apart in light of strong emotions now coming to the surface. Don’t be so afraid of letting others see who you really are — even with your current eccentricities. Following your dreams allows others to do the same.
You might be overwhelmed by an odd situation today when brainy Mercury aligns with crazy Uranus. You’re tempted to sink into your feelings and nurture someone with all your heart while another voice in your head just wants to break free from all emotional attachments. Although making your escape sounds enticing now, your practical sense of loyalty will likely win out. Find ways to express your wild side without turning your relationships upside down.
You have something on your mind and need to get it out into the open; however, you may not be ready to deal with the consequences of your message today. Nevertheless, it could feel as if you’re running out of time to speak your peace. Starting the conversation isn’t easy, but it will only grow more difficult as the day progresses. Don’t wait for a better moment to initiate the discussion. Believe it or not, the time is now.
Your key planet Mercury is being rattled by unstable Uranus and opinionated Jupiter now, aggravating a difficult situation in a relationship. Your partner or friend may grow a bit irritable today, which in turn makes your life more complicated. Your best strategy is to allow the people in your life enough room so they can find out what works best for them without worrying about your expectations. Supporting the dreams of others ultimately works in your favor.
A little extra concentration prevents your week from deviating too far off track. Fortunately, you can see how over-committed you are as long as you logically think about your activities. But as soon as you step away from your detached approach, you could fall into the deep well of feelings. Stand back a little bit to get a fresh perspective while reconsidering a new direction.
It seems as if everything at work is about to change and you aren’t sure how to prioritize your goals today. It may feel as if you’re on a roller coaster ride; you’re exhilarated one moment and craving stability the next. But attempts to end the uncertainty will only lead to higher anxiety. Stop resisting that which you cannot control. Thankfully, your path straightens out over the next few days, bringing more structure to your life and paving the way to your future.
Your current emotional dilemma is pulling you between home and career. On one hand, you really want to put in the required time to sustain a loving relationship. But, on the other hand, there’s a part of you that only wants to focus on getting ahead at work. Although you might think that you must choose one direction now, an extreme reaction won’t serve you well. There’s no need to panic; thankfully, balancing your personal and professional goals is possible if you budget your time wisely.
It’s time for you Mountain Goats to take a calculated risk. Normally, you exhibit conservative behavior as your sure-footedness prevents you from making too many mistakes. Paradoxically, a small misjudgment today may actually help you reach your goal. You’re unlikely to request assistance if you think that you have all the answers. However, you’re more likely to ask for what you need if you run into a problem. Listen to the advice you receive; it could make the difference between failure and success.
Last week may have been filled with sudden unplanned changes. Fortunately, you secretly enjoy it when the lightning strikes and things get turned upside down. As if you haven’t been through enough recently, today is a crash course in your learning process. Engage others in intelligent discussions, even if your opinions differ. Encountering new ideas can validate what’s most important to you.
Your life seems to be more hectic today because your moods are changing so quickly. The biggest challenges now may come from your personal relationships. Even if your partner seems to be sensible and rational, you might be ready to toss the whole thing out and start over. Don’t move so fast; there’s good stuff to be found beneath the surface. It will just take a while to sort through the noise that is the loudest so you can tune into the sweet music that’s singing your song.
You would prefer to keep your feelings to yourself today, but real-world obligations rudely pull you out of your inner reverie. Whether you like it or not, your attention must be focused on career issues rather than personal ones. Fortunately, a resolution to your current dilemma is possible if you state your needs with clarity. Remain relentless until you’re on a professional path that you can follow without sacrificing your integrity.
Intense discussions about your most personal values are stressful, but you might want someone else’s point of view to clarify your own. However, your plan to involve others can backfire because they might have their own strong opinions on what you should do, setting up the likelihood of a verbal disagreement. Keep a tender spot in your heart for those you love in order to minimize any unnecessary conflict.
Your uncharacteristic self-analysis pulls you into the mysterious shadows of your subconscious, bringing up old issues of self-worth. However, your current anxiety is probably linked to your relationship with the material world as you worry about your finances. If money matters present a challenge today, it’s time to face whatever stands between you and your desired security. Taking a proactive approach now prevents a crisis down the road.
An intense character may enter your life now that mischievous Mercury opposes dark Pluto, presenting you with an emotional dilemma. You must decide whether to continue on your own path or to go along with someone else’s agenda. Although everything seems dramatic now, a temporary retreat enables you to gain clarity so you know exactly which way you want to go.
You are resistant to talk too much today because you believe that others already know enough about you. Although you prefer to avoid conflict, an unexpected argument can suddenly pull you off track. Unfortunately, you might not even have a choice now. Just make certain that you fully commit to the process, since the only way you can get out is by going through it. Improve the interpersonal dynamics by showing all your cards. Exercising full disclosure is your smartest strategy.
Emotional comfort may be elusive today as verbal sparring distracts you from making a real connection with someone you love. Even a straightforward romance can grow complicated today as communicator Mercury forms tense aspects with passionate Pluto and disruptive Uranus. Nevertheless, don’t let the apparent lack of warmth discourage you. Intimacy doesn’t come without a struggle these days. Engaging in an open and honest dialogue clears the air of tension, allowing sweeter times to follow.
Your desire to be impartial dredges up hidden family secrets and brings unexpressed thoughts into awareness now as you go looking for answers. Allow communicator Mercury to do his job and initiate conversations, even if sharing at an emotional level precipitates an unpleasant confrontation. Thankfully, you should emerge unscathed and even relieved if you interact willingly, instead of avoiding the issues to keep the peace.
You are like a ferryman today, shuffling to and fro between two opposing perspectives. Thankfully, you aren’t easily deceived into believing that one side is right and the other is wrong. Nevertheless, don’t get sucked into thinking your own point of view is superior to anyone else’s opinion; a bit of intellectual detachment is exactly what you need.
Although you normally say what’s on your mind, you may try to avoid expressing your feelings today because they make you uncomfortable. You might grow so passionate over a personal belief that you don’t understand how anyone else could possibly think differently. Ironically, your ideas provoke strong emotions in others which can lead to conflict. Thankfully, the turmoil will pass quickly if you face your fears with the courage of your convictions.
Even if you’re feeling optimistic now, you must still handle issues that can bring you into direct opposition with a formidable opponent. Although you are prepared for battle, you might secretly wish you could just walk away. It seems as if your life has become a series of powerful transformations. You are not who you once were, yet you’re not the person you are still becoming. Nevertheless, take it easy even in the midst of conflict, for real change takes time to unfold.
You may be required to do something today that you would simply rather not do — yet your resistance is futile. You could grow angry if it appears that someone is working behind the scenes to undermine your positive efforts. Taking a self-righteous stand only makes matters worse. Rather than just reacting to other people’s demands with resentment, remain open to further discussion. You may be surprised that reaching a satisfying compromise is easier than you think.
It might appear as if there is no solution in sight to a current disagreement. Although loyalties in friendships may be rearranging as the current passions rise, you have a secret weapon at your disposal today. Your current ability to emotionally detach while staying intellectually engaged could save the day. Carefully analyze the whole situation to locate pieces of common ground upon which everyone can stand.
Hiding out might sound like a good plan, especially if you’ve been overdoing it on the social scene. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about being alone for long because you’re too engaged with others to withdraw completely. It’s simply time for some rest. If possible, you would be wise to coast for a bit while you can today, since you’ll be raring to go tomorrow when the Moon returns to your fiery sign.
You don’t have to agree with everything that others want to do today, especially since jumping from one project to another isn’t your preferred modus operandi. Actually, it makes sense to find some time to chill out and dream about your future, rather than being so busy running around. However, keep in mind that you won’t be able to avoid being part of the group for too long, so take advantage of the time you now have to relax.
Paying more attention to your career is a smart plan now that the Moon is visiting your 10th House of Public Responsibility. However, your dreams can overtake reality when you’re thinking about your professional objectives. Instead of assuming that anything is possible, temper your vision with a bit of common sense. Remember, you can’t just believe your way to success; you also need a sound strategy and the determination to follow through with it.
Your emotional involvement in planning your future makes it challenging today to separate your desires from reality. You might believe that your perception of a current situation is valid, yet it’s colored by your opinions more than you realize. Instead of being overly judgmental now, simply describe an event without showing your bias. There will be plenty of time later to express your feelings when it really counts.
Your intuition is functioning very well today, enabling you to sense what’s happening underneath the surface. You don’t need anyone to tell you the details, but you should be careful because your perspective may be warped by an old fear that now comes back to haunt you. It’s healthy to remember what happened as long as you understand the difference between the present and the past.
You may be concerned that your schedule is overbooked today, but you don’t see any way to cut back on your activities. You’re usually motivated to be efficient and do as others expect, but your dreams can be more pressing than what’s actually happening right now. There’s no reason to frustrate yourself by trying to bridge the gap between reality and your imagination. Give yourself permission to explore idealistic possibilities without having to make any of them come true.
You cannot seem to get much accomplished today because you’re not being very practical. Your idealism is fueling your strategy and your plans may not be concrete enough. Unfortunately, you cannot fit your ideas into the narrow confines of a calendar. You’ll be happier now if you take action when you feel like it, rather than forcing your creativity to conform to someone else’s clock.
A creative stream of images floods into your awareness now, but you might have a tough time expressing your ideas to anyone. Although you could have a very clear picture established in your mind, it fades as your day unfolds. If you want to start a project that truly captures your imagination, do it today. Don’t wait for anyone’s approval because your excitement will begin to dissipate if you don’t act soon.
Today’s Pisces Moon feels like the beginning of an end. You’re ready to call it quits and start something new, but you may be jumping the gun. Stick to what you’re doing for another day, even if you’re already bored. You’ll gain more now by sinking into your feelings about your past than distracting yourself by prematurely changing your direction.
It’s challenging to manage your schedule today as the diffusive Pisces Moon moves through your 3rd House of Immediate Environment. You might even mix up the time of an appointment or meeting. But reining in control by paying attention to details won’t work either, for someone else may be the source of trouble. Practice detachment and let your plans unravel if they must. Don’t worry; you’ll be able to put the pieces back together in a way that will work better than your original agenda anyhow.
A concerted effort to demonstrate how important your values are won’t prevent others from ignoring you if they disagree with your ideas. You still might try your hand at making an intelligent plea to muster support for your point of view. Fortunately, your words may have more impact than you realize because it’s nearly impossible to get a clear read on anyone now. Say what’s on your mind and then let it go. Don’t judge your progress until tomorrow.
The Moon’s monthly visit to your sign usually brightens the colors of your dreams. The edges of reality are softened, luring you into believing something that may be quite irrational. Don’t try to distinguish the differences between fact and fiction today because some of your beliefs could cross the line, flipping back and forth without concern for logic. See what changes the next few days bring before you make up your mind.
