General

Sometimes, isolating ourselves is not about being alone, but simply needing to escape. However, the predominance of otherworldly septiles empowers us to tune into the subtle rhythms of nature. The restless Gemini Moon activates nervous energy and keeps thoughts flowing. Unfortunately, the noise must be subdued to see the magic hidden within the silence. The Moon’s shift into self-protective Cancer at 10:05 pm EST helps us find peace and quiet.

Aries
(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Just when you think you have everything under control, the cosmos reminds you that you don’t. A conversation may go awry today, leading you in a direction that isn’t part of your agenda. But struggling will only make matters worse. Adapting to the changing conditions of a discussion is a much better strategy than trying to hold onto your initial position. Frederick Douglass wrote, “A man is worked upon by what he works on. He may carve out his circumstances, but his circumstances will carve him out as well.”

Taurus
(Apr 21 - May 21)

Something you say might create a minor tempest today, even if you had no intention of stirring the emotional pot. Communicator Mercury brings a message from the subconscious realms of mysterious Pluto now, twisting the plot in a different direction. Once feelings float to the surface, they will take on a life of their own. Rather than trying to suppress your thoughts, it’s best to welcome them, dance with them, and empower them to affect change. Be fearless; embracing your emotions allows healing to begin.

Gemini
(May 22 - Jun 22)

It’s as if you wake up today on a strange planet where everything appears the same on the surface, but you know that behind the scenes everything is different. You’re not sure how to manage this strange sensation because your reaction to this odd situation is awkward at best. Nevertheless, you can’t kick the feeling that you’re missing some key piece of information that could settle everything back into place. Poet Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. ...live in the question.”

Cancer
(Jun23 - Jul 23)

You may experience a temporary existential crisis today as you question your basic spiritual assumptions. Others might not realize the depth of your concern because you probably keep your metaphysical insecurities well hidden now. But you’re not worried about being judged for your lack of faith. You just don’t want to waste precious time and energy defending your beliefs, especially since debate will likely go nowhere productive. Dr. Joan Borysenko wrote, “Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace.”

Leo
(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Your desire to be a mouthpiece for your workgroup or social network motivates you to talk about nearly anything that comes up now. Unfortunately, your positions on most issues are not the same as everyone else’s today, and going on the record about a controversial subject can open a can of worms. Unfortunately, avoiding disagreement is more complicated than it seems. But there’s as little reason to court open conflict as there is to sidestep it if it is raised. Take all conversations in stride, without attaching your expectations to any single outcome. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

Virgo
(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

A lack of reliable information can send you into an emotional tailspin today without much of a warning. Thankfully, you have the tools to recover from your unscheduled loss of certainty as quickly as it began. However, your saving grace is not about finding reliable data that you can stand upon. Instead, your faith is being tested as you’re asked to temporarily let go of your need for objectivity. Although this leap is not an easy one for you analytical Virgos, you might not have a choice. Thankfully, trusting the cosmos allows you to jump into the unknown without any more hesitation.

Libra
(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Mapping a path into your future is extra complicated when you cannot figure out where you are in the present. Although establishing a starting point should be a simple task, your measurements seem to give conflicting answers now. The harder you attempt to get your bearings, the more frustrated you become. Your way out of this dilemma is much easier than you think; just stop trying to get anywhere. Giving yourself permission to drift for a while removes the pressure and clears the way for certainty to return.

Scorpio
(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

You can sink into deep waters of your imagination today, inspiring transformational visions. Surface events resonate with powerful mythological connections, adding layer upon layer of psychological and spiritual nuance. Thankfully, your current emotional detachment empowers you to confidently uncover even more. But there’s no need to put all your realizations into a tidy package now. Take a few steps back from the interpersonal noise and just let the energy settle down first. Engaging by choice, not by demand, enables you to dig deeper than ever.

Sagittarius
(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Your friends and relatives seem to be moving too fast today -- and yet they appear to be accomplishing little. It’s as if they are feeling slighted and need a hefty dose of your encouragement. People end up spinning more wheels than is necessary without getting anywhere fast. But don’t be too quick to judge, since you might be distracted by baubles, beads and other shiny objects now, too. The only advice worth giving is to slow down and count your blessings. Author Colin Wilson wrote, “Imagination should be used, not to escape reality, but to create it.”

Capricorn
(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

You have so many items on your schedule today that you don’t know where to begin. But your mental superpowers enable you to manage complex situations that might make other people crazy. Nevertheless, putting your calendar in order can be like herding cats; as soon as you have one or two things in place, a third one slips out of your grasp. Don’t be too hard on yourself since the cosmic energy is so complicated now. Do whatever you can by aspiring toward those goals within easy reach and letting the others slide for now.

Aquarius
(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You believe that you can express your needs clearly, but your perceptions of yourself are not very accurate today. In fact, others might be struggling as they attempt to decipher your message. No matter how specific you try to be now, people still may feel like they are interpreting your dreams rather than your instructions. Don’t fall into the trap of blaming anyone else for their inability to understand you, especially when you can’t understand yourself. Author David Levithan wrote, “The mistake is thinking that there can be an antidote to the uncertainty.”

Pisces
(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You’re unsure as to your next move, but you’re sure you’ll figure it out just in time. Paradoxically, everyone else seems to be more concerned about your situation than you are now. But you might actually enjoy the current ambiguity because it gives you a chance to wander through your imagination rather than ambitiously striving toward a goal. Make use of this short reprieve by actively exploring every alternative path into the future. The more you dream now, the more options you will have. Napoleon Hill wrote, “Focus on the possibilities for success, not the potential for failure.”
