Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


Although the distinctions between reality and fantasy are blurry, we are hopeful that clarity will return soon now that nebulous Neptune is turning direct. Our uncertainties about the future prompt us to overcompensate by focusing on the best possible outcomes. But the sobering Capricorn Moon joins shadowy Pluto, sending us on a journey into the subconscious. Meanwhile, a Moon-Mars square encourages us to fight for whatever we believe the most.

(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Your attention is singularly focused on receiving recognition at work today, and you’ll do nearly anything to achieve success. Unfortunately, you could inadvertently hurt someone’s feelings if you don’t stop to think about how your relentless drive might negatively impact others. Saying you’re sorry after the fact isn’t good enough; it doesn’t undo any pain you caused. Taking the time to check in with those around you enables you to avoid any unnecessary harm -- and the satisfactory glow of your accomplishments burns brighter than before.

(Apr 21 - May 21)

You are so confident that your solution to a problem at work will be successful that you don’t hear the advice you receive from others now. You are quick to dismiss the observations of your associates without even giving them real consideration. Although your intentions are good, your execution is lacking. You like to work at your own pace, but you’re not truly a solo act if your actions affect anyone else. Instead of getting angry at people for offering constructive criticism, be grateful for what they bring to the game.

(May 22 - Jun 22)

You can’t quite grasp how the unknown components of a relationship are more crucial than the obvious. Your concern with creating a safe space is only one ingredient in your recipe to empower people. You are thinking more clearly today, but there’s something wrong with selectively using logic to make your position known. Don’t hold back any information, even if it runs counter to everyone else’s intelligence. Full disclosure works in your favor now only if you avoid hiding behind artificial walls.

More for Gemini: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

A good friend or workmate may seem to be a bit overbearing today. You might try to step out of the direct line of emotional fire, but there’s nowhere to hide. You don’t have the energy or the desire to engage in conflict now. Thankfully, you have a trick up your sleeve that comes in handy. There’s no reason to go anywhere else if you can temporarily make yourself invisible. Return when the danger is passed. Your silence speaks more than your words ever could.

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

An intelligent debate is better than a shouting match, but either will suffice to clear the air of building emotional tension today. At first, you might resist participating in verbal combat, proudly declaring that your actions will speak for themselves. Unfortunately, you may not have a chance to act with the clarity you wish to convey. If you need to make your case, try writing it down first so you know you will cover all the critical points. Rumi wrote, “Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

More for Leo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You have something on your mind that must be expressed today. Although you could justify waiting for the perfect moment, it would be a mistake to miss this opportunity to reveal your thoughts. Unfortunately, carefully describing your point of view might agitate others, prompting a swift reply in return. But don’t feed the negativity if emotions begin to escalate. Keep in mind the goal of sharing isn’t to focus on differences; it’s to establish common ground.

More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You’re certain that your current plans are built upon solid assumptions. You’ve taken great caution to avoid conflicts of interest, but those concerns resurface today as you revisit your original thinking. Don’t wait until you’re in the middle of an argument before shoring up your facts; knowing the difference between a verifiable truth and an opinion is a necessary first step. Benjamin Franklin wrote, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

You are on the warpath today, yet are willing to wait for the most opportune moment to attack your unsuspecting opponent. Paradoxically, you would rather kick back and enjoy a relaxing day at the beach or on the couch. But you can’t afford to be complacent now; you could lose your creative edge if you don’t fight for your right to express yourself. Greek statesman Pericles wrote, “Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it.”

More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

You have your sights set ridiculously high today because you woke up feeling like anything is possible. Some people are so practical they only see what can’t be done. But you’re ready to initiate action now, since you know complications could surface in the days ahead. Encountering obstacles is inevitable, so it’s sensible to make as much progress as you can before you run into trouble. An Arabian proverb states, “A promise is a cloud, fulfillment is rain.”

More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

Although you don’t often let your feelings get in the way of your accomplishments, you might not be able to avoid an emotional meltdown today. You fully understand why logical analysis should overrule the heat of passion. But all the rational thinking in the world won’t suppress what’s in your heart now. Rather than wasting your energy fighting against the inevitable, surrender to the wisdom of your body. Trust your gut instincts; if something seems wrong, it probably is.

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You are being gently held by the hands of fate now. It’s as if your destiny has been chosen and you’re just tagging along for the ride. But don’t think for a moment that your actions are wasted. Everything you do has ramifications that ripple into the future, whether or not you can see them. Although a past failure might prevent you from being successful, you can overcome your personal history by remembering it, retelling it, and then letting it go. Mahatma Gandhi said, “The future depends on what you do today.”

More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You are gazing into the future with a very practical eye today. Your perceptions are eerily accurate, so there’s no need to jump through lots of extra hoops to continue your research. Work with the data that’s already in your possession. Although you can make decisions with a high level of certainty now, don’t be overly rigid in your thinking. When new information knocks at your door, let it in and reevaluate the big picture from a different angle. Byron Katie wrote, "Until the mind is open, the heart stays closed. The open mind is the key to the open heart."
