Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


Yesterday’s big ideas are grist for today’s mills as we do the hard work of turning our fantasies into reality. Although the Moon’s shift into ambitious Capricorn at 7:01 am EST motivates us to work rather than play, it’s not enough to ensure that we will follow through with our plans. A sweet afternoon kiss from Venus can be distracting, but the Moon’s late-night conjunction with taskmaster Saturn could be enough to prevent us from going astray.

(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

You may be redoing something you thought was already completed. However, the echoing of unfinished business is not a failure now, but rather an opportunity. Comparing your recent accomplishments and setbacks with your current goals reveals that your actions are not repetitive as much as responsive. Rather than wasting time worrying about events in the past, focus on fulfilling your commitments with what you now know in the present moment. The distance between dreams and reality is called action.

(Apr 21 - May 21)

Your love of being surrounded by beautiful things is palpable. The emotional Moon pleasantly aligns with aesthetically oriented Venus. You may be in the mood to go on a shopping spree today; all the jewelry you see sparkles and everything you try on seems flattering. However, it’s wise to pace yourself so that you do not end up with buyer’s remorse. Enjoy the indulgence and even spoil yourself a little if your budget allows. But when making a purchase, think in terms of lasting satisfaction versus temporary gratification.

(May 22 - Jun 22)

Leading with your intellect is your standard operating procedure. However, the last few days have made this cerebral approach difficult to master. Luckily, change is in the air. The reflective Moon moves into containing Capricorn, returning your equilibrium and realigning your ambitions. This cosmic shift supports your efforts to integrate your rational understanding of the emotions you recently experienced. It’s clear there are lessons to be learned if you’re willing to be objective in your assessment. Activist Audre Lorde said, “Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.”

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

It takes a conscious effort to stay emotionally centered when there are so many distractions and disruptions in your environment. The evocative Moon’s presence in commanding Capricorn complicates matters now. Although this awkward alignment makes you touchy, it can also be cathartic for your heart. It may not be a cozy-cup-of-tea kind of day, but there is potential growth in discomposure. Being emotive is one of your gifts, especially if you trust your intuition when choosing the moment to reveal your feelings.

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Taking life too seriously can seem like a foreign concept to you playful Lions. Exuding joy is excellent, but a more reserved demeanor is fitting while the solemn Capricorn Moon occupies your 6th House of Daily Life. Although you find yourself less melancholy today, you are still somewhat hampered by your mundane responsibilities. There are times when restrained temperament is more impactful than the gregarious persona you are accustomed to exhibiting. Dialing things back need not be boring; just like with comedy, timing is everything.

More for Leo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You can fall victim to getting lost in thought more than any other sign. One idea leads to the next, and the next, and so on. Your headiness can result in a lack of emotional awareness, leaving you to believe that such transient feelings are mere frivolities. Just before the Moon slips into resourceful Capricorn, she joyfully connects with irrepressible Uranus, encouraging you to give voice to what’s in your heart. Although this planetary contact is brief, its impact can be lasting. Wake up or miss out.

More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You are almost always relationship oriented when making strategic choices. However, interpersonal dynamics take center stage when the Moon marches into your 4th House of Home. As you spend time with family, be they immediate, extended or chosen, remember to include yourself in the picture. Although your wants and needs are more powerful than you are accustomed to expressing, communicating your feelings strengthens existing emotional bonds. Finding the sweet spot between your desires and those of others brings tangible harmony to your world.

More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Although at times you struggle to find an emotional outlet, you are rarely one without a strong opinion. Your feelings might not always walk hand-in-hand with romantic love, but that does not necessarily mean they lack depth. Your tendency to go to extremes serves you best if you avoid a narrow-minded view or a judgmental attitude. Be relentless in the pursuit of your dreams. Poet, Czeslaw Milosz wrote, “The voice of passion is better than the voice of reason. The passionless cannot change history.”

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Looking your feelings directly in the eye might be stressful for you action-oriented Sagittarians. However, it was not an error in judgment to connect with your heart, even if it was mildly annoying to have the moody Moon hanging out in your sign for the last few days. Although you may feel sidetracked, you can’t help but grow when you delve into your emotions. Thankfully, you find solid ground now upon which to undertake your next adventure. As you embark on your journey, remember the words of Black Elk, “And when I breathed, my breath was lightning.

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

Emotional expression is about as comfortable to you as an ill-fitting shirt. Try as you may, no amount of adjustment leaves you relaxed. As the Moon climbs into bridled Capricorn today, your knack for keeping the sappy world at bay wobbles, if not completely collapses. Remember, sharing your vulnerability does not make you weak. On the contrary, as long as you’re not reactive, revealing your feelings enables you to be an effective leader. Get out of your head and listen to your heart.

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

Do something unexpected and keep everyone guessing today. As the misfit of the zodiac, you’re happiest when leading with radical ingenuity. Although some experience you as dispassionate, they just fail to see the totality of your emotional sensitivity. Before she changes signs, the uplifting Sagittarius Moon gives you the impetus to break the mold once again. The value of an individual’s expression and how that helps further your goals is suddenly crystal clear. The element of surprise is your secret weapon.

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

The noise of the universe can be overwhelming when you’re so energetically and emotionally sensitive. And lately, your intuitive nature has sharpened to a high-frequency point. Although altruism is not something to shy away from, beware of helping others at the expense of yourself. Before the vulnerable Moon switches signs, she runs into a conflict with wounded Chiron. Their cosmic interplay reminds you to stay optimistic in the midst of chaos and challenge; one of the keys to wellness is expressing your heart. Paint the world the way you see it.
