Although the sensible Taurus Moon reminds us to stick to the essentials, we’re not happy about it. Unfortunately, arguing with reality is fruitless and only leads to more frustration. However, an anxious alignment between revolutionary Uranus and idealistic Neptune tempts us with Utopian dreams. The chasm between our vision of a perfect world and the one we live in remains vast, but making small improvements where possible is empowering to all.

(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Signs everywhere are telling you to slow down, but you might recklessly choose to disobey them. You still have plenty to accomplish today, and you’re not in the mood to lose momentum. Unfortunately, you must reevaluate your strategy of denial if you find yourself stuck in mud. It’s one thing to persist in spite of hardship, but only a fool would try to forge ahead when no progress is being made. There’s a world of difference between giving up and knowing when enough is enough.

Inertia is not your friend today because an object at rest tends to stay at rest. Ironically, your thoughts are racing all over the map but there’s so much mental activity that it’s tough to find a place to jump in and get started. Ultimately, you might try to take the easy way out by just letting time float by. However, inaction isn’t a viable option because you’ll end up annoyed with your lack of accomplishment. Persisting in the face of resistance is a sign of strength.

(May 22 - Jun 22)

You may feel as if you’re disconnected from the rest of the world today, even if nothing has changed recently. Rather than interacting through social media, you might read other people’s posts without reaching out yourself. But invisibility isn’t your natural style even if you are successful with your disappearing act now. Don’t waste energy whining about your temporary isolation. Instead, use your alone time to reconnect with your inner realms. Author Katrina Kenison wrote, “Solitude is the soul’s holiday, an opportunity to stop doing for others and to surprise and delight ourselves instead.”

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

You are looking at your life through a very sensible filter today. You want to make plans, but are hesitant to push the envelope now that the practical Taurus Moon is visiting your 11th House of Long-Term Goals. You’re aware of the widening gulf between your visions and reality. Oddly enough, this apparently unbridgeable gap gives you permission to go anywhere in your fantasies because you believe them to be unreachable. Much to your surprise, your daydreams create metaphysical scaffolding upon which you can build an amazing future you want to live in.

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

You wish to be known as a reliable resource in your community now. In fact, the determined Taurus Moon’s presence in your 10th House of Public Responsibility indicates you might just get what you want. However, it may take more time than you expect, since earning respect doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, there’s no way to rush the process; you must grow into your role as an authority figure by working hard to prove your competence. Psychologist William James wrote, “Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”

More for Leo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You’re inspired by the simplest dreams now. You are more excited about a goal that is easily attainable than by unrealistic fantasies that are currently beyond your reach. But imagining a pleasant experience isn’t enough to bring you satisfaction; you still must take the initiative to make it happen. Unfortunately, there are so many paths that appear to lead in the same direction, you can’t choose which one is your best bet. But indecision won’t move you any closer to your goal, so pick one road and set out without further delay.

More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You believe that a successful relationship requires both people to be equal participants. But sometimes subtle inequities can pull a partnership out of balance. You may be entangled in such a delicate situation now, and want to understand your role so you can improve the dynamics. Starting a dialogue about what you each bring to the dance enables you to map out a strategy for realizing your highest potential. Philosopher Mortimer Adler wrote, “Love without conversation is impossible.”

More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

It’s annoying when others behave as if they have all the answers, especially if you can see through the façade of their self-confidence. Unfortunately, a spirited conversation won’t lead anywhere productive while the presence of the stubborn Taurus Moon in your 7th House of Companions indicates another person’s lack of flexibility. However, it takes two to tango; your actions can stand in the way of progress, too. A breakthrough is more likely if you approach the situation from a fresh perspective. George Bernard Shaw wrote, “Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

You seek ways to engage your friends in conversations about your future. Although you like the idea of brainstorming, the back-to-basics Taurus Moon is visiting your 6th House of Logistics, requiring you to attend to the details. You might feel as if you’re caught in an uncomfortable struggle between the very large and the very small. Striving for balance sounds like a wise pursuit, but it will probably only increase your anxiety now. Instead of seeking a solution to your dilemma, let the divergent perspectives exist side by side without conflict.

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

Although realistic planning usually brings satisfaction, something about it doesn’t work today. The steady Taurus Moon falls in your 5th House of Play, but her stressful aspects make it difficult for you to relax and enjoy life. There are facets of the day you can change and those you cannot. Work to improve the things within your control and let the others go. Focus on whatever brings you pleasure. Rumi wrote, “When you go to a garden, do you look at thorns or flowers? Spend more time with the roses and jasmine.”

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

Although you don’t want to wait for all the wonders of the future to arrive, you have no choice but to take the only route that goes there. Fortunately, you’re also oddly fascinated with the status quo and are quite satisfied to remain in the present while it lasts. However, the time between now and then is a mystery that can unwrap the secrets of happiness. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Life is a journey, not a destination.”

More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You need to be surrounded by people who can hold up their end of a conversation now. However, you won’t be satisfied with run-of-the-mill discussions about mundane events. An uneasy collaboration between progressive Uranus and spiritual Neptune lures your thoughts into uncharted mystical waters. You are sure to be captivated by a more philosophical approach to life, yet you still need to bring even the most radical ideas back down to Earth where you can put them into practice. Think cosmically; act locally.
