It may seem as if we are slowly waking from a dream. The clear, cool logic of the Virgo Moon enables us to gain fresh perspectives on recent events. But we are not immune from negative emotions -- ours or someone else’s -- as we grapple with the current state of our personal or cultural affairs. The conflict between angry Mars and dark Pluto can be temporarily overwhelming, but easy lunar trines end the day on a realistically upbeat note.
Defining your boundaries is easier once you match your priorities with your actual desires. You may struggle to toe the fine line between laziness and just taking it easy, but being lost in this endless analysis is not how you wish to spend the day. Thankfully, you can work as little or as hard as you want to align with your preferences once you’re in touch with your internal landscape. But whatever you decide to do, relax and accept your path after you make your choice. Baseball player Mark McGuire said, “If you want to maximize your total potential, you have to know yourself first.”

You take pride in knowing the basics about anything that grabs your interest. However, a simple question that you should be able to answer may stump you today. Your lack of certainty can raise fears that you may never know enough about a subject that enchants and delights you. It might not even matter to you that others see you as an expert in the field if you feel like an impostor. However, the truth is finding out there’s more to learn is a blessing since that means you have additional room for growth. John F. Kennedy wrote, “The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.”

Minor adjustments produce major results. A simple tweak might be enough to prevent a time-consuming trip back to the drawing board. Although you could easily become swept up in your concerns about a project, there’s no need for this level of worry now. Instead of summoning a tidal wave of emotion that overwhelms your clear judgment, trust that your current doubts will subside if you don’t feed them with thoughts about your inadequacies or past failures. Thankfully, the solution is much simpler than it seems today. Stay strong, stay positive, and don’t give up.

You are more convincing when you speak from your heart instead of just rattling off facts and figures. Of course, it is helpful when making a case to have sufficient details to support your position. But before you flash your expertise today, use your empathic powers to sense other people’s feelings and read the unspoken clues. If your intuition contradicts someone’s words, ask questions rather than relying solely on your personal insight. Blending the art of diplomacy with the art of persuasion enables you to paint a picture of sincere conviction.

Taking stock of your strengths gives you something substantial to build on. But dwelling on what you don’t have will not bring you more of it. Others probably perceive your assets better than you do -- as they relate to your professional or personal life -- so ask close friends or colleagues what they see as your gifts. Reaching your goals requires that you start from where you are with what you have. The most practical approach to success begins with a careful assessment of your skills and resources. However, regardless of the size of your wallet, integrity is the heart of your character.

Persistence works in your favor today. Thankfully, you can catch your groove, even if you are out of step at first. However, you still might lose some of your mojo later on, making you feel as if you must start from scratch. You may even question your progress as your confidence wanes. Don’t try to silence your doubts, since they hold the key to self-improvement. Instead, be like a dancer hearing new music; move on faith, gliding along one moment at a time with no guarantees about what comes next. Your commitment keeps you moving until you eventually establish a consistent rhythm. Alice Walker wrote, "Hard times require furious dancing."

Your jitters are a physical reminder telling you to show off your skills and shine. Proper preparation prevents poor performance. Your star is on the rise.

Treating people the way you wish to be treated is vital to your emotional satisfaction. Your inner critic can create trouble today if you judge a friend too harshly. Your astute powers of observation might lead you to notice aspects of someone’s character that don’t measure up to your exacting standards. It’s likely that you set the bar of expectations so high that no one could pass your intense examination. Fortunately, prioritizing compassion and communication empowers others to be their best selves. Essayist William Hazlitt wrote, “A gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles.”

Give people a second look before you form a first impression. Knowing when to cut others some slack can add sunshine to a potentially dark interaction. Perhaps you’re having an off day and your perceptions are clouded with emotions. Or, maybe someone else is having a tough time acclimating to a new environment. Ease off the criticism and add more curiosity and humor into the mix today. Don’t take yourself too seriously or dwell too much on another person’s faults. After all, being human is a temporary state of being. Author Steven Maraboli wrote, “When we are judging everything, we are learning nothing.”

Breaking down a large project into manageable steps is your secret to success. Although you may be wearing your emotions on your sleeve today, you should be able to maintain a positive attitude.

Clark wrote, “If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

Taking proactive measures now prevents future loss. Unfortunately, you can easily become distracted with all the comings and goings that you could lose track of valuable items today. Rather than idly hoping nothing will go wrong now, keep an eye out for potential mishaps and place your keys, phone, and wallet in a safe spot. However, constantly looking over your shoulder with fear only attracts the negativity you wish to avoid. Instead, practice spotting problems before they happen and you will be ahead of the game. Benjamin Franklin wrote, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Ironically, you don’t need to have all the answers today because your imagination and intuition inspire others to get busy searching for solutions. Although it requires trust, your momentum will carve out a path for you and your pack to follow. Sometimes, the hardest part is taking the first step. Resist thinking and rethinking whatever you feel called to do, especially if your idea is motivated with noble intention and goodwill. Even if you make mistakes, your curiosity and integrity ensure you will learn important lessons along the way. President Barack Obama said, “Let us reach for the world that ought to be.”
