Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your heart is running the show today, taking you on a journey to an unfamiliar destination. Although you’re a willing accomplice, you’re not happy about giving up control of your agenda. In the final analysis, this sacrifice seems trivial, especially if you can establish a meaningful connection with someone special. Emotional satisfaction is within reach if you have the courage to stay on course no matter what surfaces in the process. Benjamin Disraeli said, “Man is only truly great when he acts from the passions.”
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Aligning your intentions with a higher purpose sets the stage for emotional fulfillment. Spending time with someone you love isn’t enough to bring satisfaction when your head and your heart are in conflict. Nevertheless, you crave harmony in your relationships. If your current situation falls short of your desires, don’t let self-doubt limit the possibilities of what’s to come. The planets are standing by ready to offer their assistance, but you need to make the first move. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You might be worried about what you will uncover when you start asking questions today. Although you may consider remaining quiet for the sake of peace, there’s too much at stake. Ultimately, you need to know the truth, even if sinking into your feelings brings up uncomfortable memories. There’s no quick route in or out; this emotional journey will take time. Fortunately, there are treasures awaiting your discovery, buried in the recesses of your subconscious. Don Miguel Ruiz wrote, “With awareness, reality shifts.”
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
A close friend or lover may initiate an unpleasant conversation today. Fortunately, you can manage the intensity of another person’s fears now, because you recently fought a battle with your own demons and won. Although you don’t have solutions to someone else’s dilemma, you are fully capable of holding space for their process without overreacting. This profound emotional work is not to be taken lightly. However, your efforts are appreciated and your continuing support is nurturing for all involved. Gloria Steinem said, “Empathy is the most radical of human emotions.”
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You are stepping into transformational territory as you sort through your assorted emotions and try to learn the lessons being offered now. Your persistence uncovers new truths that alter your view of life and what you hope to achieve. The path you chose is not an easy one, but exploring behind the facade of surface appearances can change your perspective in ways you can’t yet imagine. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You don’t need any batteries today because your feelings are an endless source of power. Although you may experience a troublesome situation in love, you’re able to maintain a healthy perspective and take everything in stride. But there’s no room for denial now, so use your sharp logic to see beyond the camouflage and cut through the distractions. Oprah Winfrey said, “The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.”
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You’re drawn into a complicated melodrama that raises a familiar issue. It’s difficult to maintain emotional distance when feelings intensify today. You can become consumed by a friend’s crisis because you’re willing to offer a sympathetic ear and a strong shoulder. The current circumstances might remind you of another power struggle when you were not in control, but don’t let these memories shut you down prematurely. You have a significant role to play in someone’s life now; be there for the people who matter.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Your power comes from your wizardly ability to undergo a surprising metamorphosis without missing a step today. You are the legendary phoenix that arises from the ashes as mysterious Pluto harmonizes with vulnerable Venus. Others might be afraid of such dynamic change, but you instinctively know that it’s futile to resist these evolutionary waves. Being flexible enough now to go with the cosmic flow is a sign of strength. Thomas Monson wrote, “Decisions determine destiny.”
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Your values may be brought into question today by someone who claims to have all the answers. But digging into the situation might reveal two very different views of reality. Although explaining your beliefs could be helpful, you must be careful to distinguish them from the hard facts. Adopting an objective approach enables you to avoid a needless argument and move on to something more constructive. Wayne Dyer said, “Conflict cannot survive without your participation.”
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You are the champion of gentle persuasion today, but your sweet and sensitive nature doesn’t mean you’re a total pushover. No one can coerce you into relinquishing authority now, especially if you are operating from your heart. What others might perceive as stubbornness, you experience as conviction. But defending your position is a waste of time when you could be leading by example, instead. Socrates wrote, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
A secret has a life of its own today, and may even be more important than what you share. Naturally, you’re not required to tell everyone all your private thoughts; there are some things that are better left unspoken. Whatever you choose to say now, do it with consciousness. Deliberate communication is the cornerstone to a successful relationship as long as your intentions are aligned with your heart. Oddly enough, talking to each other instead of about each other makes most of your problems disappear.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Your perceptions are eerily accurate today and your feelings are powerfully intense. You want to share your perspective with your friends, but might not know how to approach a subject that others want to avoid. Unfortunately, the longer you wait, the more resentful you may become and your dissatisfaction could drown out your intended message. Open the conversational door gently now; an aggressive approach will scare others off before they hear what you have to say. Poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote, “What comes from the heart goes to the heart.”
