Confidence can turn into doubt, but only if we let it. The sensitive Moon sextiles disciplined Saturn at the break of day, starting us off feeling secure. That, combined with the confident Sun’s trine to optimistic Jupiter, can make it feel as if nothing could go wrong. However, the Moon opposing tricky Mercury may throw us a curveball with forgotten commitments or misunderstandings. Then, perfectionist Venus opposes turbulent Pluto at 7:39 pm EDT, which can create doubt and excessive criticism. Go easy on yourself and others -- nobody’s perfect!
Your words may have more power over others right now than you think they do. Although you may feel like you’re just being honest and sharing your opinion, you might not be giving others room to do so in turn. If they don’t speak up when you give them an opportunity, however, it’s not your job to shrink yourself in order to make them more comfortable. Be rational and level with your words, and respect others when they do the same.

Friends may compliment you today and make you feel secure, then in the next sentence -- intentionally or otherwise -- say something that insults you. Instead of letting your feelings blow around in the wind with someone’s words, stand strong and don’t let their opinions damage your self-confidence or cause you to lose faith in yourself. Besides, their comment probably wasn’t meant to slight you. Even if it was, you’re where you are now for a reason, and no one has the power to dismiss your journey outright.

Hiccups caused by miscommunication or a total lack of communication could create a rift in your plans. You may have committed to something that you’re no longer able to do, or perhaps you receive a bill that’s much higher than you thought it would be. Do your best to roll with the punches; use your wits to help you to remedy any issues. Being prepared and appreciating others for their time will help you make the best of today.

You may be more sensitive in matters of love and friendship right now, and a tendency to act passive aggressively could arise if you feel that someone is taking your place. Don’t give in to fear and doubt! Instead, be thankful for what makes you happy, and realize that there’s no reason to look for the worst in these relationships. If there is an issue that you can’t shake, let the other person know how you’re feeling so they’re not left in the dark.

Having good intentions is one thing, but creating the desired results is another. You may want to lift someone up with words, gifts, or good deeds, but think before you act! Ask yourself if this is something that they want or if you’re projecting your own likes onto them. Your desires are not one-size-fits-all, and you may be spending money on an expensive gift that this person will never use. Instead, buy what you want for yourself, and find out what they personally need to feel loved.

Emotional adjustments and dramatic circumstances in the workplace are more likely now, creating frustrating situations that may trap you between two stances. Resist the urge to pick sides or coddle someone who’s been behaving badly, even if they’re your friend. You’re capable of remaining neutral without losing friends, and if you pick a side, you’re more likely to create hurt feelings. In the spirit of a peaceful environment, do what you can to keep from getting involved.

Disagreements involving the authority figures in your life are likely to arise, and these people may try to restrict you with words. If they’re insisting that it’s their way or the highway, this is a sign that they’re more interested in controlling you than doing what’s best for you. While it can be frustrating to try and maintain your individuality under people who have power over you, finding a compromise that will benefit both of you in some way is the wisest course of action.

A secret may be revealed today that creates tension or awkwardness in your relationships. This doesn’t have to be your secret, but it’s likely one that you already know about -- you may have even been present when it was originally being told. Do your best to avoid becoming the loose lips that give the secret away, because broken trust can damage friendships and start arguments. Even if it’s an exciting one, keep this story under lock and key!

Someone may strike a nerve in you today, bringing upsetting emotions from zero to sixty in no time flat. What they say may not even be directed at you personally, but they might dismiss or speak unkindly regarding a topic that you feel strongly about. Jumping to conclusions and verbally fighting back could catch them off guard and send them into defense mode. While it may not be the more appealing action, it’ll be worth it to explain gently why you’re disappointed.

Revisiting something that made you happy in the past could inspire you in the present. While trying to get back into an old hobby can be difficult, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. You may need to retrain your muscles for a sport you used to play or reread the tutorial for a game you once loved, but your skills are probably still there. Someone else in your life may even provide an opportunity today to reconnect with something you previously enjoyed, so give in and have fun!

Showing vulnerability may not be your strong suit, but today you will have the opportunity to show someone else that you care. This will probably be an act of service, where someone in your circle will ask for your help, or you may see their need without them having to say anything. They may not necessarily show their gratitude in the moment, but as long as your method of help isn’t too invasive or pushy, you can assume they will be thankful for it.

Your family or the people that you live with may not understand your goals, but don’t let their confusion make you disheartened. It may take time for them to warm up to new ideas -- or this could be a misunderstanding that turns into something more argumentative. Be patient and recognize that they still love you, but just aren’t able to conceptualize your vision. Once you’re able to make that vision a reality, it’ll be easier for them to understand.
