Aries (March 21 – April 19)
It doesn’t matter how angry you are over a misunderstanding; your plan is to keep your feelings to yourself. However innocent the other person appears now, it still seems like there may be some shady intention behind their behavior. Although you want to set the guilty party straight today, you might not want to reveal your insecurity. Your only sensible response is forgiveness or you could overcompensate later in the day by losing your cool at the worst possible moment. Moving to higher ground provides the best view.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Although you’re enchanted by a familiar fantasy, you won’t likely say anything about it to anyone else. In fact, you appear unusually cautious, flying in stealth mode so others don’t notice how distracted you actually are now. Ironically, you might try to cover your tracks by taking the lead in a conversation that has nothing to do with your current obsession. Fortunately, your evasive strategy works perfectly today, since your feelings will settle back down to normal soon enough. No need to stir the pot unless you want to serve soup.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You seem more contemplative today, but your silence won’t last forever. It’s actually your heightened sensitivity that changes the game for you now. You don’t want everyone to know the depth and intensity of your emotional reactions, so you simply speak less for the sake of peace. However, you can only bite your tongue for so long and when you finally open your mouth, an unexpected torrent of words is released. Just make sure your rant portrays your inner world accurately or you might be on cleanup duty later on. Sharing your feelings as they occur prevents unnecessary drama from hijacking your day.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You are an easy target today because you’re wearing your changing moods on your sleeve. There’s no hiding the fact that your subjectivity can suddenly override your rationality. Objectivity ebbs and flows with your emotional tides, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it now, other than choosing denial. Thankfully, those you admire the most will benefit from your unyielding support. You are a champion at nurturing the people, animals and plants that you love. Be proud of your open heart and let your love light shine.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Contrary to what many astrologers say, you Lions don’t always want to be strutting and roaring under the bright spotlight. Today’s reflective Cancer Moon floats through your 12th House of Privacy, luring you off stage and into the shadows. Nevertheless, you still might have something important to say and you plan on delivering your message even if there’s no audience. Don’t just speak to make yourself feel better; examine your motives before opening your mouth. Author Florence Scovel Shinn wrote, “Your word is your wand.”
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’re exercising extreme caution today and might go the solo route because you hope to avoid an argument that’s simmering in the air. However, you also want to be around your tribe of allies so you can bask in the emotional support that seems to be for yours asking. Unfortunately, you cannot pursue social isolation and emotional connection simultaneously. No matter what you choose, keep your expectations to a minimum. Unquestionably, it’s better to be happily surprised than sorely disappointed.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You might have an attack of Mother Hen Syndrome today; you want to take everyone under your wing and protect them from all the evil influences in the world. Although your intentions are probably nothing but well-meaning, others think you’re being overly controlling. You defend your actions and your integrity by claiming you only wish the best for everyone. Everything seems pretty straightforward on the surface, but increases in complexity the more you dig in your heels. Sometimes, relinquishing control is the highest form of love, even if it doesn’t seem the kindest.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You’re back in your watery element today, swimming in a familiar place that reminds you of home. But you’re concerned that you’re missing something important while curious Mercury connects with wounded Chiron and opportunistic Jupiter. You don’t want to turn an insignificant fact into the linchpin of your latest conspiracy theory, only to see it go up in smoke. Take the time to feel every emotion, but don’t act on every emotion you feel.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Leaving the world of action behind isn’t the easiest thing for you fiery Archers. You might even decline an invitation to explore shared emotions with someone special or discuss a passion project with a friend. Nevertheless, you have your work cut out for you now, and it involves a bit of unusual research. Mental Mercury complicates matters by making you painfully aware of how your previous plan fell apart. It’s not too early to bring in the metaphysical demolition team to tear down the remaining structure before beginning a massive reconstruction project.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You might pull back from a friend or lover because you’re afraid of being a victim of someone’s clingy behavior. You seek definition in a personal relationship now, but it’s not easy to find it when a significant other shows signs of neediness that defy logic. Unfortunately, your retreat only exacerbates the issue by raising the stakes and eliciting further fear of abandonment. Although actions speak louder than words, initiating a conversation about the energy imbalance is the first step to finding a solution that works for all. Stop moving and start talking.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You want to be meticulous with your words because avoiding a misunderstanding today prevents headaches down the road. Nevertheless, inspiring others with images from your unrealized fantasies is an effective way to persuade them to work more closely with you. However, finding the right mix of exacting descriptions of reality and poetic representations of possibilities can be very tricky now. Paint your dreams in vivid colors but don’t leave out the imperfections.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You wish you could figure out the best way to reliably improve your creativity, but the magic of those special moments eludes description no matter what technique you employ. Nevertheless, a lack of inspiration is not so much of a problem now that the Moon is dancing in your 5th House of Self-Expression. You don’t even have to try; it’s as if your Muse is following you around, waiting for your simple acknowledgment to start. Paradoxically, spontaneity works wonders, especially when you plan for it.
