Events take a surprising turn today by throwing us a curve ball. Although a shocking Sun-Uranus square is disruptive, our willingness to change plans on a moment’s notice can minimize any negative consequences. Nevertheless, a provocative Mars-Pluto square later in the day raises extreme feelings of fierce passion or intense power struggles. Moderation is elusive and emotions run rampant as the grandiose Sagittarius Moon pushes us over the top.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You could take yourself too seriously today and may go too far trying to prove yourself to someone. You’re ready to fight for your beliefs, but you need to chill out a bit because your passions are blown out of proportion now, especially if you bump into resistance. Even if it seems like others are purposefully blocking your way, it’s smarter to work with the energy instead of attempting to overpower it. But don’t succumb to fear; you can reach your destination by following the high road instead.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Managing your erratic energy is quite a challenge today, but it should get easier as you gain awareness about what’s really happening. A minor run-in with someone whose opinions are different from yours may stir memories of an unpleasant situation. Acknowledge your feelings; a molehill can turn into a volatile volcano if you try to bury them. There’s no reason to let the pressure reach a critical point. Avoid losing your temper by gently sharing what’s on your mind without blaming anyone else in the process.

You won’t be happy if your friends assume that you will go along with anything they want to do today. You may feel that they are being too pushy and you really don’t appreciate it. You might reach a point where you have no choice but to respond honestly, even if you don’t want to make such a big deal about what’s going on. But rather than instigating a conflict through direct confrontation, do your best to move through an uncomfortable situation by talking about your own concerns. Taking responsibility for your emotions is healthier than playing the role of a victim.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Trying to disappear into the shadows isn’t a sensible strategy today; something has to be done now and it’s up to you to do it. Although you may not want to take charge, it might be necessary if no one else steps up to the plate. Remember, if you take issue with someone’s performance, saying it out loud can prevent your anger from hardening into resentment. Keeping your feelings flowing is your key to happiness.

You like to play the part of the good guy and are usually happy to focus your intentions on the best possible outcome. You may truly believe your optimistic approach is the most intelligent strategy now, but someone might think you’re simply avoiding the facts. Ironically, you both could be right. However, if you try to prove your superiority today, everyone ends up losing. Concentrate your efforts on creating common ground instead of tearing each other apart.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
A lighthearted conversation may unexpectedly turn into a very serious argument today. What bothers you most is if someone acts like a know-it-all, bending the truth for apparently selfish purposes. You don’t have any tolerance for people who spout facts that are blatantly false. However, a fight to the finish could do much more harm than good. Demonstrate your common sense and wait until everyone’s emotions have settled down before continuing the discussion.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Everywhere you turn today people seem to be on edge and you don’t like the confrontational atmosphere. You might be tempted to blame someone else because you know that your intentions are honorable. Unfortunately, the current circumstances are more complicated than you think; your suppressed anger could be coming back at you in a projected form. Accept full responsibility for your feelings, even the most negative ones. This simple act of courage may be sufficient to begin calming the disruptive energy.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
If you haven’t been following a healthy exercise regimen, it’s time to put one into motion because your planetary rulers, muscleman Mars and formidable Pluto, cross paths to provoke powerful action. Although you might feel strong emotions bubbling upward into your awareness, this edge of intensity can be softened through physical exertion. Channeling your energy positively by working out at the gym or dancing all night long helps to moderate your extreme point of view.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Unfortunately, previous obligations may require you to reconsider your plans today. But you might not be happy when you realize that a social event will still go on, even without your attendance. Although you could be tempted to express your annoyance by criticizing others, shifting the focus away from you isn’t a useful strategy to get what you want. This tricky situation is a test of your maturity, so accept the current circumstances that can’t be altered and rise to the challenge by improving your attitude.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
If you lose your temper today it will become more difficult to obtain the results you seek. Unfortunately, you may be frustrated because satisfaction doesn’t seem to be forthcoming now, and you have run out of patience. Nevertheless, an explosive emotional outbreak could turn your allies against you when you need them the most. Being honest and expressing exactly what you’re thinking might be the right thing to do, yet compassionate behavior conveys your message more kindly.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You might think you’re too busy to stop and process your feelings today. Unfortunately, this denial could take you down a bumpy path, causing unexpressed emotions to simmer beneath your awareness and turn a healthy reaction sour. Negative thoughts may be lurking in the shadows, so take your time and talk about your current frustrations. Thankfully, you can avoid a serious conflict if you adopt a proactive approach based on honoring your integrity and establishing clear channels of communication.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are most often comfortable when feeling your way through a complex interpersonal landscape without a rational anchor. However, you might stubbornly choose to resist all forms of emotional engagement today. You realize that there are still issues left unresolved, and that it’s easier to avoid them than to confront the underlying causes. Unfortunately, there may be no way to sidestep the truth. Being honest now is the key to receiving the support you want later on.
