Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


Our desire for simplicity is being thwarted by circumstances that are beyond our control. Four planets in obstinate Taurus encourage us to resist the uncertainty of change. Meanwhile, the complicated Scorpio Moon tempts us with one emotional melodrama after another. An anxious Mercury-Jupiter misalignment makes it nearly impossible to distinguish between vital matters and trivial ones. Staying flexible helps us respond to unexpected developments.

(Mar 21 - Apr 20)

The same steps that led you to your current location can be retraced to where you started if you so desire. It’s reassuring to know that you can always return to square one if a do-over is in order now. Your rough-and-tumble confidence and inexhaustible faith in yourself allow you to freely experiment and explore. Stuck is a mindset that you normally don’t indulge. Your life’s journey is invigorating, whatever the twists and turns you encounter. Nevertheless, practicing humility allows your inner light to shine and your integrity to sparkle.

(Apr 21 - May 21)

Necessity calls for invention, and you are quick to respond with a helping hand. Progress can be satisfactory when possessiveness and rigidity are kept as far from center stage as possible. It might be exasperating or confusing when a friend brings on the drama but it’s almost certainly not a total surprise based upon recent history. However, if you remain unruffled and unimpressed, others tend to follow your lead. Stay focused on the task at hand and what begins like a roaring lion will be transformed into a happy lamb. Be a warrior, not a worrier.

True clarity is possible if you take your time and don’t rush sizing up the picture. While you can sense that there are threads tying disparate incidences or coincidences together today, it could still be tricky to wrap your rational mind around the precise how or why. Take stock of the plentiful signals indicating there is both rhyme and reason for connecting the dots. When full understanding pops on like a bright light bulb in your brain, the answers will be enlightening and worth the wait. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”

(Jun23 - Jul 23)

You may be oddly detached from conversations with colleagues today. The latest health trends, current events, or office gossip are typically the hot topics at the water cooler. But letting general chatter go in one ear and out the other can be refreshing now, especially if much of the discussion lately has been over the top or overtaken by someone aggressively opinionated. Trust that your ears will perk up if anything mentioned directly impacts you. Otherwise, enjoy the silence created when you slip off into a beautiful daydream. Novelist Emily Dickinson wrote, “Saying nothing sometimes says the most.”

More for Cancer: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jul 24 - Aug 23)

You’re eager to step out your front door and into a world full of creativity, love, and adventure. Of course, reality might be a little less exciting than you expect, but that doesn’t daunt you one bit today. You wonder why anyone would wait for opportunity to knock when you can chase it down so easily. When you’re determined to spread positive energy wherever you go, good things sprout all around you like flowers in a well-tended garden. Don’t doubt that your optimistic attitude wields special powers. The best way to multiply your happiness is to share it.

(Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Your most profound thinking occurs when you are at home in your personal surroundings today. You’re confident knowing that all the tools, resources, and materials needed to do the job are within reach. Inspiration flows when you’re free to drop anchor, put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door, and get down to business. You feel like you can conquer the world from a secure, well-organized base of operations. And when it comes to your corner of responsibilities and dreams, nearly anything is possible if you stay on track. Work hard in silence. Let success be your noise.

(Sep 24 - Oct 23)

People nearby might take an unusual interest in your work or play today. Diving into a detailed description of your current activity is a surefire way to separate the sincere from the merely curious. But regardless of how anyone else sees your priorities, your emphasis is on health, safety, efficiency, and fun. The truth is you’re committed to pursuing your own goals and might secretly wish for zero interference now. Others are well advised to either follow your instructions or step aside. Stay in your lane even if you run into resistance.

More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

(Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Your cautious ways protect an exceedingly warm heart today. You are private by nature, sharing your most intimate thoughts and feelings only with a select few. Although your behavior makes perfect sense to you, especially if you were burned in the past, you don’t need to reach current decisions unconsciously. Relying only on your assumptions is a limiting option. Consider the lessons learned through experience but remain open to the possibility of something new. Where understanding, respect, and healthy boundaries exist, caring and sharing evolve naturally. Kindness is transformative and love is a verb.

(Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Reason is an excellent guide when it comes to your personal health. Pause and take a quick inventory of the current variables if you’re tempted to do anything exceptionally risky or rash. It could be ego, pride, or a subconscious need for acceptance or attention that’s egging you on. You’re the boss of your own choices and are fully capable of overriding impulses that don’t stand up to sensible inspection. You are an irreplaceable treasure; handle yourself with tender loving care.

More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

You possess an abundance of energy to devote to a passion project today. However, doing something well requires persistence and follow-through. Whether you’re mastering a foreign language or a musical instrument, it takes dedication and practice. If you’re pursuing an athletic goal, there are long hours of repetition involved as you strive to improve your game. The same is true if you’re developing your psychic muscles in meditation, dream study, or parapsychology. A favorite pastime can be a beautiful way to de-stress. A labor of love turns work into play.

More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

(Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You’re excited about putting the unique mark of your personality on a space where you spend a lot of time, be it your office, shop, home, or automobile. Utility serves an essential purpose and making your surroundings functional is always the top priority. But once this solid foundation is in place, let your identity shine through with your choices of colors, accessories, and luxuries that reflect your taste and style. Personalize your environment since it envelopes you on a nearly daily basis. Thomas Merton wrote, “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

(Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You can totally ace any public presentation today. If you have any doubt about your abilities, act as if you don’t and the results could surprise you. When the prospects for learning on the job are looking this awesome, you may want to think twice about shying away from the spotlight. Given your innate modesty, the stage might not be your favorite place, but the applause is thrilling and the recognition rewarding. Seize a good opportunity to raise your profile or spread the word about your product, service, or art. Rumi wrote, “Shine like the whole universe is yours.”
