Discerning the truth isn’t easy today while trickster Mercury forms a smooth trine with deceptive Neptune. But there is a spiritual manifestation of this alignment that enables us to use the power of imagination to access higher realms of thought. Meanwhile, the philosophical Sagittarius Moon expands our perspective to further widen our horizons. The Moon’s shift into goal-oriented Capricorn at 8:12 pm EDT swiftly brings us back into the real world.

You could go out on a limb today by sharing your feelings before you have a context in which to process them. Your emotional response to someone’s behavior can be immediate, but it’s unwise to jump to conclusions prior to turning your logic loose on the situation. Keep in mind that your gut reaction contains information that’s crucial to your understanding of the present circumstances. Nevertheless, it’s not helpful to indiscriminately open your heart before you engage your head. Author Joyce Meyer wrote, “Discipline enables you to think first and act second.”

People seem to say all the right words today, as if they were composing love sonnets on the spot. But everything that glitters is not gold, nor are all beautiful declarations truthful. It’s not that anyone is intentionally trying to mislead you; in fact, it’s probably your own imagination running wild. Take off your rose-colored glasses so you can see the world as it is now, and not as you imagine it. Tim McGraw sang, “Chase your dreams but always know the road that’ll lead you home again.”

Unfortunately, you won’t find the straightest path to success by logically analyzing all the variables and eliminating the least effective routes. You will progress further and faster today if you bypass rational thought and trust your intuition. Quicksilver Mercury’s superconductive trine to surreal Neptune offers a direct connection to your destination, magically bending the fabric of space and time. Anything can be created in the realms of the imagination. Reality begins in your dreams.

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

Your wishes seem to be within your grasp today; the only limits are the limits you place upon yourself. Your perceptions are incisive now, but you could easily draw the wrong conclusions if you think you know the answer prior to asking the question. Taking a shortcut won’t work to your advantage unless you fully prepare by putting all the details in order before you start. If you do your absolute best every day, realizing your fullest potential will soon be a piece of cake.

You may be uncomfortable with someone’s noncommittal attitude today. You are so excited about your mission that you don’t understand why anyone would drag their feet when presented with your plan. Unfortunately, you won’t win others over so easily now. You need to return to basics by revealing your logic because your emotional appeal alone won’t likely close the deal. Author Aldous Huxley wrote, “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

The only person who can pull the wool over your eyes today is you. Although clever Mercury harmonizes with illusory Neptune in your 7th House of Partners, reality is not what it appears to be now. It seems as if you are looking out into the world around you, but you’re actually staring into a metaphysical mirror. Remember, you can transform your relationships in a heartbeat by shifting your frame of reference. The brightest stars are those that shine for the benefit of others.

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

The harder you try to zone in on reality today, the more elusive it becomes. However, all you want to create is a manageable balance between the world as it is and the world as you imagine it to be. Ideally, you should be able to drift back and forth between the world of substance and the realms of dreams because they are simply reflections of one another. Rod Serling said, “Fantasy is the impossible made probable.”

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Your perceptions are accurate and your reasoning is shrewd. Nevertheless, you may tumble down a rabbit hole of doubt if you mix up facts and fantasies today. There’s nothing wrong with meandering along a stream of consciousness if you know when to step back onto dry land. Fortunately, your daydreams widen your vistas of possible futures. Exploring many alternative realities increases your chances for success as long as you can keep your eyes on your destination.

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Your dreams are lit up today, leaving you with vivid impressions of your fantasies. But you’re unlikely to share these messages from your subconscious because there’s something oddly intimate about them. It’s as if opening a doorway to your inner world could make you feel so vulnerable that you might want to run and hide. Nevertheless, the potential for growth is significant enough to convince you to take a risk. “Peter Pan” author J.M. Barrie wrote, “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.”

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

Your friends may look to you for inspiration today and you won’t let them down. It’s as if you’re operating with a direct communication channel open to your future, empowering you to see the outcome of current behaviors before they manifest. But don’t try to uncover the source of your knowledge now, since intellectually analyzing your gift might actually close down your penetrating perceptions. However, there’s no need to push an idea to conclusion. It’s more important to maintain an open mind so you don’t miss an opportunity when it knocks at your door.

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You are quite persuasive today, especially when trying to convince others that your plan to achieve extraordinary goals is within your scope of ability. However, you grow even more motivated to explain your cause when you encounter someone who can’t seem to grasp your message. Speaking with absolute certainty can be a remedy for being seen as possibly unreliable, but you will still need to come through with the goods. Albert Einstein said, “To punish me for my contempt of authority, fate made me an authority myself.”

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You need to know that your hopeful dreams can positively influence your life today. You may be fantasizing about business travel, strategizing about a new direction to take at work, or just feeling inspired by someone who opens your mind. In any case, there are ways of engaging with associates and potential clients that go beyond traditional methods. Employing social media to increase connectivity can change the rules of the game. However, you must continue moving forward. Ann Landers wrote, “Nobody gets to live life backward. Look ahead, that is where your future lies.”
