Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


Emotional intensity takes center stage and its presence in our lives can bring a sudden twist of fate. Impulsive Mars forms a conflictive square with impassioned Pluto, pitting our need to take action against powerful forces already in place. Meanwhile, the calculating Capricorn Moon joins relentless Pluto and then squares Mars, Uranus and Jupiter. Anger fuels frustrations, requiring us to channel our feelings constructively or pay the price.

(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

You’re poised to conquer the world no matter what comes your way. You’re emboldened to seize what you desire without stopping to ask while warrior Mars calls your 1st House of Self his stronghold. Your unshakable confidence is sure to raise eyebrows, so don’t expect to take the field without encountering a contender or two. Although you can expect to face challenges from authority figures or power players today, it’s actually good practice for fortifying your intentions. Harnessing your argumentative urges for more productive uses will propel you further than fighting over minor differences in opinion.

(Apr 21 - May 21)

Although you Bulls are known for your stoic nature, everyone’s fuse runs out at some point. Your patience is quite short today as little irritations pile up until you’re sure the next one will be the final straw. The sooner you become aware of your growing anger, the better you can manage it. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish when you channel your energy toward breaking down old belief systems that no longer serve you. Consciously directing your powerful inner forces prevents a meltdown before it occurs.

(May 22 - Jun 22)

The pressure builds deep within you and it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing your sense of apprehension. You might even bow out of work early to contemplate your feelings now that the cautious Capricorn Moon meets domineering Pluto in your 8th House of Transformation. Feeling lost in your direction is disorienting, but you can look beneath your fear to see an opportunity for a greater shift. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.

More for Gemini: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

It’s hard to find your place before someone else makes their move, like an endless game of duck-duck-goose. Between your past experiences and your future aspirations, a compression takes place that seems to be funneled into your relationships. You may be projecting your stress onto the ones closest to you today, causing needless tension and unwelcome drama. Fortunately, if you’re brave enough to reveal the source of your frustration, the climax of a situation could result in a breakthrough rather than a breakdown.

More for Cancer: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Your long-term goals seem far off in the distance today, but that only makes you want to run faster to reach them. You’re ready to do whatever it takes to bridge the gap between you and your future, but the mightiest tools for success may be right under your nose. The persistent Capricorn Moon channels potent energies from four planets straight into your 6th House of Work, indicating that your triumph comes from consistent efforts. Seek out sustainable daily actions that move you toward your dreams one step at a time.

More for Leo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Your natural propensity for serving others has made you very familiar with the feeling of being spread too thin. But things are different now, because it seems like you’re nearly at an emotional tipping point. You’re bound to become aware of how little energy is leftover after you spend the day giving to others when ardent Mars in your 8th House of Deep Sharing confronts passionate Pluto. It’s imperative to sort through your emotions until you find your way back to what you’ve known in your heart all along. Sometimes loving yourself can be the most challenging task of all.

More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Although you normally walk the path of compromise, you feel you must boldly assert yourself to be taken seriously today. A tense interaction with someone close to you may call your fundamental beliefs into question, initiating a major evaluation of the whys behind your behaviors. A weighty Moon-Pluto conjunction in your 4th House of Foundations is like an anchor sinking into the depths of your mind. The key to unlocking your own psychological mysteries lies in your readiness to confront the secrets you uncover. There’s no reason to be afraid; the truth will set you free.

More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

It’s not that any one event tipped the scales, but rather an accumulation of small occurrences that prompts you to feel like something has to give. You’re ready to kick a habit that is holding you back, but that’s quite a task when your immediate environment has shaped itself around it. Before you start hastily cutting things out of your life to make the alterations that seem so urgent, turn inward and question your beliefs around the situation. Shifts in your mental habits may produce more powerful results than rearranging external circumstances.

More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

A little risk never hurt anyone, or so you say when others question your latest strategy for an exorbitant escapade. On a normal day you would stand by your plan, but today’s events may lead you to a very different place. Your hunt for gratifying ways to express your creativity has profound implications when seen in the context of buried self-worth issues. And no matter how hard you try to deny them now, your insecurities are likely to haunt you. Carl Jung wrote, "What you resist, persists."

More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

The ground beneath your feet seems more like a volcanic zone, and you feel the heat rising up through your shoes. Handling professional concerns is easy enough on its own but when domestic issues start getting in the way, you want to put out the fire before it spreads. Snapping at anyone who dares to oppose you only makes matters worse. Examine your attitude and follow it back to the source. Perhaps you’re just seeking an excuse to shed your skin and start fresh. You don’t need to torch the building to get light.

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You’re so passionate about a topic that you can’t gobble up information fast enough. However, the verve with which you grasp for more knowledge may be an overcompensation. The somber Capricorn Moon joins mysterious Pluto in your 12th House of Dreams, unearthing aspects of yourself you intentionally buried. Once you remember your secrets, there’s no erasing them; nevertheless, there is a bright side. Painful situations often signal the beginning of an accelerated period of spiritual growth, as long as you’re willing to face your darkest shadows. James Russell Lowell wrote, "A weed is no more than a flower in disguise."

More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You can sense that the emotional atmosphere is turbulent from the start, and you may feel the need to barricade your defenses. Although you believe in authenticity, you might have to remake yourself to fit into the societal slot you’ve found yourself in as possessive Pluto squares off with pushy Mars. Your group of friends seemed like a perfect choice at first; but if you feel intimidated or forced to be something you’re not, it’s probably time for some pruning of your social network. Oprah Winfrey said, "Only surround yourself with people who will lift you higher."
