Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


Emotional power-plays come front and center when the sensitive Moon forms a difficult square with controlling Pluto midday. We must watch our words, but these matters become easier in the evening when the Moon locks into a supportive sextile with lucky Jupiter, encouraging some light-hearted laughter. Our tempers will ease when the Moon moves into slow and steady Taurus at 7:46 pm EST, encouraging us to have a luxurious evening of good food and a good night’s rest.

(Mar 21 - Apr 19)

The planets are creating a little bit of drama across your career sector today, so it is important to remember that life isn’t a race and you don’t need to win at all costs. A VIP or boss could push your buttons, and your first instinct might not be the most professional one, so count to ten and take a few deep breaths if you find yourself feeling a little thin-skinned. Things will calm down in the evening, so make a point to nurture yourself.

(Apr 20 - May 20)

You may spend much of the day just trying to make sense of what's going on around you; it feels like you’re having to read between the lines or translate an unknown foreign language. Instead of stressing or trying to make sense of it all, just let it simmer on the backburner for now and return to it when you have a clearer view of the picture in front of you. Clarity will arrive eventually, just not today.

(May 21 - Jun 20)

You're in an overall social mood now, but you may experience an overwhelming urge today to take cover and be by yourself for a bit. If people won’t stop hitting you up, then feel free to turn off your phone and shut the curtains. It takes a lot of energy to be a Gemini, and every once in a while, your body tells you that you need to pull back. Listen to it; once you get a little solitude, you'll be back to your usual self.

(Jun 21 - Jul 22)

You’ve got every reason to aim high today as the Moon moves through your career sector, giving your ambitions a shot of adrenaline. However, a tough beam from Pluto in your relationship sector could create a bit of stress with a co-worker or business partner, so try to make room at the table for everyone, whether you’re in the mood to or not. Tempers will ease in the evening, so treat yourself to a nice dinner and a quiet night on the couch.

(Jul 23 - Aug 22)

This is a beautiful time for you to get out into the world and explore as much as you can. However, while you are seeking new horizons, a difficult connection between the Moon and Pluto might remind you of the responsibilities waiting for you, pulling you back to your desk when you’d rather be off doing something more interesting. Make a point to clear your most important obligations out of the way early so that nothing can stop you from a day of discovery.

(Aug 23 - Sep 22)

There may be some struggles ahead for you today when it comes to interacting with others. You could find yourself dragged into a dramatic situation that leaves you needing to pick a side. No matter what you choose, everyone's passions are heated now, so try to maintain your consummate cool and simply excuse yourself from any situations that don’t benefit you. Things will ease up by night time, when you can take it easy and unwind however you please.

More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Sep 23 - Oct 22)

While you normally do your best to deal with everyone calmly and fairly, you can expect to be a bit more sensitive than usual today. It's like your buttons are exposed for others to push freely, leaving you wondering what or who will set you off next. Put up any barriers that you need to today and give space and empathy to others and to yourself. You can let people back in tomorrow under gentler skies.

(Oct 23 - Nov 21)

There's an extra level of perfection and efficiency in what you do today and you’ll be able to push through your chores if you focus. However, focusing might not be the easiest thing to do when power-hungry Pluto sends out a jealous beam to the emotional Moon, throwing an emotional wrench in the works. Whether this jealousy is directed toward you or it's coming from you, people will be a distraction today, so do your best to stay organized.

More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

(Nov 22 - Dec 21)

The good news is that you're in an expressive and artistic mindset today. The bad news is, a tough angle between the Moon and Pluto will require you to roll up your sleeves and put your nose to the grindstone when it comes to a financial situation, even though you’d rather be doing something more fun. This is only temporary, however, so get this money matter solved and know that, right after, you can return to an activity that makes your heart happy.

(Dec 22 - Jan 19)

The comfort of your bed will be hard to escape today, and you should give yourself permission to hit the snooze button. Take things easy and let yourself move one step at a time, rather than trying to plan out every single step of your day in advance. Everything will feel more easygoing if you aren't trying to stick to a strict schedule. A burst of energy comes in the evening, so the urge to work might hit late; at least you'll be well rested for it.

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Your brain is buzzing today and your schedule appears to be full of one thing after another. Keeping all your appointments in order might be rather difficult, however, as a shadow is cast over your mind, making it difficult to cut through the fat and get to the facts. What seemed so clear yesterday is fogged over today, and you may be feeling a bit spaced out. Try to keep your eye on the prize, even if your vision gets cloudy.

More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Feb 19 - Mar 20)

You can make a lot of progress if you focus on work and money matters today, but maintaining that focus may be the difficult part. There's disruptive energy in the air and your friends might come clamoring for your attention just when you need to roll up your sleeves and get something done. Instead of pushing back, give yourself permission to address their needs or say a few words, then return to your tasks at hand. Every time your focus gets pulled away, just bring it back to center.
