Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


The luxury of humming dreamy tunes comes to a crashing crescendo when the Moon blasts into headstrong Aries at 1:26 am EST. It’s time to pay the piper if we drifted too far off course. The Moon’s square to karmic Saturn is a harsh reminder that we get what we deserve. Thankfully, Luna also forms supportive sextiles to the willful Sun and resourceful Venus, paving a path through the rugged landscape that makes it easier for us to find our way home.

(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Sometimes your impatience is so relentless that you go ahead with an action you know will create problems. However, your logic is not the captain of your ship now, and you might not be able to talk yourself into waiting. Although the Moon’s return to impetuous Aries can convince you to take a risk, her square to naysaying Saturn puts a damper on your plans, even before they are off the ground. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”

(Apr 21 - May 21)

You’re ready to slip into stealth mode today because you believe you can be more productive when you don’t have to explain every move you make throughout the day. In fact, your behavior might seem mysterious to those who can’t figure out why you’re not more forthcoming about your specific needs. You’re not trying to complicate anything, nor are you playing hard to get. In your mind, you’re simply willing to try nearly anything to accomplish more with less output of energy.

(May 22 - Jun 22)

Yesterday’s reasons to turn down a social invitation might return as today’s justifications for saying yes. It’s confusing when reality can be perceived so differently in less than twenty-four hours, but the Moon’s shift into spontaneous Aries and your 11th House of Friends reminds you that your relationships are key to your happiness. Of course, you could get by on your own if you must, but it’s more fun if you can share life’s ups and downs with a community of like-minded people.

More for Gemini: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

You are in the throes of a complex dilemma today as work-related opportunities require your response. Every cell in your body is screaming yes, but circumstances might not allow you to proceed at this time. Fortunately, patience is one of your secret weapons, so focus your energy on where you can be useful now and stop watching the clock. Thankfully, if it becomes a matter of who flinches first, your ability to wait for the right moment gives you the distinct advantage.

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

You are just as impatient as the other fire signs, but your fixed nature can turn a frustrating situation in your favor now. Once you set your mind to accomplishing a goal, you are relentless in your pursuit until you reach your destination. Although you may run into one stop sign after another today, you’re not likely to become discouraged. You’re a pro at taking it all in stride because you understand that setbacks are not permanent; they are merely resting points on your way to success. Persistence is your ally when times are tough.

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

If you are involved in complicated negotiations with your coworkers now, it helps to know what motivates their actions. Luckily, you can see directly into someone’s soul today, enabling you to easily break through their normal defenses. However, you could accumulate bad karma if you use your current skill to gain unfair advantage. Enter every discussion with a clear goal in mind. Be forthright, state your intentions clearly, and don’t deviate from your chosen path. Hidden agendas and behind-the-scenes shenanigans will only come back to haunt you.

More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You appreciate it when people are direct in their communication because it’s easier to respond when you already know how someone else feels. Nevertheless, you find it unacceptable when anyone comes on so strong that they don’t give you a chance to meet them on equal footing. In fact, you might withdraw from a discussion if the other person is too forceful for your taste. But don’t just disappear without an explanation. If you believe that your boundaries were not respected, make sure to say so in an appropriate manner. No one should mistake your kindness for weakness.

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Your work-related chores are well defined now, leaving little doubt about what is expected from you. Fortunately, you are confident that you can do your job in a timely manner. The self-willed Aries Moon is marching through your 6th House of Logistics, motivating you to shift into high gear in order to get traction and finish what you start. Once you know your role in the big scheme of things, you can figure out the rest on your own. If someone asks you, “What do you do?” Answer, “Whatever it takes.”

More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Hiding your optimism is a challenge today, but you don’t want to flaunt your confidence when others appear to be struggling. However, you’re not afraid to climb out on a limb and fully own your positive attitude now. Nevertheless, you still might annoy, or even shock, someone with your cavalier approach. It might seem as if you’re emotionally detached from the outcome of everything in the material world now, but that’s simply not the case. Every step on your journey is just as important as your destination.

More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

As competent as you are in the outer world, expanding your skillset in the inner world is a more complicated challenge. But you’re not one to take psychological exploration lightly; you might not even believe that it is your best defense against stress. Nevertheless, your serious nature pushes you into imaginative realms where magic is just as common as cause-and-effect. Khalil Gibran wrote, “Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.”

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You seem to be a conversation starter today and are unwilling to patiently wait for others to make the first move. You want all the facts you can get now because you believe knowledge is power. Don’t look for a signal that it’s okay to initiate a dialogue. Ask probing questions to start the ball rolling while the courageous Aries Moon is visiting your 3rd House of Information. You don’t need permission to begin when everyone expects you to take the lead.

More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You need a fully functioning social network today because the support of your friends can make all the difference in the world. But you can tell that there’s an emotional storm brewing and you want to know all the facts before you jump into a situation and find yourself in over your head. Thankfully, your greatest cosmic resource now is the reflective Moon’s presence in your 2nd House of Possessions, enabling you to accurately inventory what you have -- both physical and metaphysical. Take a chance and reveal a secret to someone new. Nothing ventured; nothing gained.
