Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


Interpersonal sparks fly, warming our hearts or creating destructive fires. A dynamic Venus-Mars square can start arguments or stimulate creativity. But fantasies are so vivid while cerebral Mercury joins surreal Neptune that we might be lost in our own thoughts. Emotions take the lead while the sensitive Cancer Moon forms harmonious trines with the Sun, Mercury and Neptune. Nevertheless, a pragmatic Sun-Saturn sextile helps us make our dreams real.

(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

You might believe your actions will be well received, even if you’re actually behaving badly. Red-hot Mars is firing up your energy today, prompting you to express your feelings with a heightened sense of urgency. But your excitement may be perceived as unnecessary drama if your emotions start to run off the rails. Thankfully, it won’t take much of a reminder for you to pull back, regroup and state your case in a more methodical manner. A steady hand helps to manage a fearless heart.

(Apr 21 - May 21)

Your friends and family can be the source of much heartfelt joy today. However, your assumptions about other people’s participation may lead to disappointment if someone’s behavior falls short of your expectations. Rather than facing one major setback, it’s likely that you’ll continue to rebuild your fantasies as they meet reality throughout the day. Fortunately, this process works if you’re willing to make small adjustments in response to the dynamics of the situation. Gradual change is more palatable for you obstinate Bulls and tends to last longer.

(May 22 - Jun 22)

You may be searching for a new direction in life, especially if you’re disillusioned with your current circumstances. However, fantasies are running rampant today, inspiring you to put a positive spin on your career trajectory whether or not you are happy with where it is going. But you must be careful about taking your silent frustration out on anyone else. You can determine your future path by being responsible for your actions in the present moment. Simplify your goals; be realistic in your planning and consistent in your execution.

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

There are time-sensitive items on your to-do list, but you’re not very motivated to take your chores seriously today. You might prefer to daydream of future adventures or, perhaps, watch a movie about someone’s epic journey. But your imagination only takes you so far; you will soon start to grow bored and seek experiences that are real instead of just imagined. There’s no need to wait until your anxiety builds to an intolerable level. Start small by meeting your obligations first, and then you can cultivate your bigger ideas until you’re ready for that trip around the world.

More for Cancer: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

You are caught in a dilemma of your own making today. You wish you could head outdoors because physical activity sounds good for your mind and body. But you’re just as excited by the notion of hanging out at home, getting a few domestic chores out of the way, and maybe even taking an afternoon nap. Although exercise adds movement to your day, being still for a while is more rejuvenating in the long run. A Chinese proverb claims, “Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.”

More for Leo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Your emotional rollercoaster ride continues today as people close to you send conflicting messages. You want to make good decisions based upon undeniable facts, but you don’t know what to believe when you are told yes and no simultaneously. At first, you might assume that everything you hear is the truth, but soon realize you need to double-check all information for yourself. Be relentless in meticulously investigating the illusions. President Ronald Reagan said, “Trust, but verify.”

More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Your schedule is nearly impossible to manage because you’re not particularly interested in timekeeping today. In fact, your dreams are more compelling to you now than any appointment. You might underestimate how long it will take you to complete a project, which can throw the rest of your day off track. Nevertheless, setting priorities should be easy, even if your self-defined workflow doesn’t fit into someone else’s agenda. Ursula K. Le Guin wrote, “One must work with time and not against it.”

More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Your intuition is the source of your power today. Refreshing your intellect by dipping into the magical waters of your subconscious washes away the buildup of worn-out assumptions and unneeded emotional baggage. But you’re less likely to surrender your values, and stubbornness can lead to outright conflict now. Thankfully, an argument won’t likely hijack the entire day, because it might flare up and then dissipate as quickly as it arrived. But don’t hold onto any negativity for any reason; letting go is your key to happiness.

More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

You are driven to put your action plan into motion now, but circumstances beyond your control may require you to wait just a bit longer. Impulsive Mars in inspirational Sagittarius is like a personal coach, telling you that you cannot waste another day. But loving Venus in compassionate Pisces squares Mars, reminding you that you will fail at your endeavors unless you take other people’s feelings to heart. A.A. Milne’s Eeyore said, “A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference in the world.”

More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

You’re willing to jump through all kinds of emotional and practical hoops in order to accomplish your goals. Your current stress comes from your inability to separate the most important considerations from the chatter and the chaos. Sifting through all the incoming data is time-consuming on a normal day, but it’s even harder when your reality filter is slightly out of whack. As the warning labels reads, “Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.” Nevertheless, your singular focus helps to limit the noise so you can make the best choices.

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

It’s more useful to have a theme song today than a detailed agenda. Your daydreams fuel your real-world intentions, and any attempts to squelch them are not in your best interest. However, flying through the day without a flight plan isn’t helpful either. Be smart and work both ends of the spectrum. Actively expand your imagination through song and dance, art and craft, or contemplation and meditation. In the meantime, get your ducks in a row, even if you don’t stick to your previous program. Roman philosopher Seneca wrote, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Everything would be perfect today if there wasn’t that little problem of reality. Several planets, including a fantasy-prone Mercury-Neptune conjunction, are clustered in your imaginative sign, amplifying the volume of your dreams. You can conjure up nearly anything in your mind now and believe it to be true. Unfortunately, the outer world doesn’t necessarily support your inner visions and it falls on you to work out the differences. Akiroq Brost wrote, “Patience solves more problems than conflict ever will. It pays to wait before reacting. Take some time. Contemplate. Come back to it later. Don’t react from a volatile state.”
