Minor problems surface as we explore hidden aspects of love. On a practical level, we can’t deny that we’re intrigued by the unknown. However, our persistence is rewarded while magnetic Venus harmoniously trines shadowy Pluto, facilitating intense emotional interactions. But the reserved Cancer Moon is more comfortable when we feel more and share less. Nevertheless, we’re driven to push past our fears and discover the magic of the dark.
Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
Your heart is running the show today, taking you on a journey to an unfamiliar destination. Although you’re a willing accomplice, you’re not happy about giving up control of your agenda. In the final analysis, this sacrifice seems trivial, especially if you can establish a meaningful connection with someone special. Emotional satisfaction is within reach if you have the courage to stay on course no matter what surfaces in the process. Benjamin Disraeli said, “Man is only truly great when he acts from the passions.”
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Aligning your intentions with a higher purpose sets the stage for emotional fulfillment. Spending time with someone you love isn’t enough to bring satisfaction when your head and your heart are in conflict. Nevertheless, you crave harmony in your relationships. If your current situation falls short of your desires, don’t let self-doubt limit the possibilities of what’s to come. The planets are standing by ready to offer their assistance, but you need to make the first move. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
You might be worried about what you will uncover when you start asking questions today. Although you may consider remaining quiet for the sake of peace, there’s too much at stake. Ultimately, you need to know the truth, even if sinking into your feelings brings up uncomfortable memories. There’s no quick route in or out; this emotional journey will take time. Fortunately, there are treasures awaiting your discovery, buried in the recesses of your subconscious. Don Miguel Ruiz wrote, “With awareness, reality shifts.”
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
A close friend or lover may initiate an unpleasant conversation today. Fortunately, you can manage the intensity of another person’s fears now, because you recently fought a battle with your own demons and won. Although you don’t have solutions to someone else’s dilemma, you are fully capable of holding space for their process without overreacting. This profound emotional work is not to be taken lightly. However, your efforts are appreciated and your continuing support is nurturing for all involved. Gloria Steinem said, “Empathy is the most radical of human emotions.”
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
You are stepping into transformational territory as you sort through your assorted emotions and try to learn the lessons being offered now. Your persistence uncovers new truths that alter your view of life and what you hope to achieve. The path you chose is not an easy one, but exploring behind the facade of surface appearances can change your perspective in ways you can’t yet imagine. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
You don’t need any batteries today because your feelings are an endless source of power. Although you may experience a troublesome situation in love, you’re able to maintain a healthy perspective and take everything in stride. But there’s no room for denial now, so use your sharp logic to see beyond the camouflage and cut through the distractions. Oprah Winfrey said, “The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.”
Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)
You’re drawn into a complicated melodrama that raises a familiar issue. It’s difficult to maintain emotional distance when feelings intensify today. You can become consumed by a friend’s crisis because you’re willing to offer a sympathetic ear and a strong shoulder. The current circumstances might remind you of another power struggle when you were not in control, but don’t let these memories shut you down prematurely. You have a significant role to play in someone’s life now; be there for the people who matter.
Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)
You’re receiving emergency messages on all channels today, warning you to swing into action before it’s too late. Although this heightened sense of urgency propels you into motion, it’s not the healthiest way to get motivated. In fact, you might end up exhausted, overextending your energy because you attempted the impossible. Nevertheless, you’re in the middle of a significant period of growth now, making it tough to maintain balance in your life. Author David Allen wrote, “You can do anything, but not everything.”
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
You look to the horizon today and see infinite possibilities waiting to be pursued. Your high ideals blend with unrestrained visions, inspiring you to reach for the impossible dream. However, you may be setting yourself up for discouragement once you realize your aspirations are unattainable. Nevertheless, you don’t need to give up on your quest for adventure and fun if you relegate these hopes to the fantasy realms. John Lennon said, “Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.”
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Your recent resistance starts to subside today, and your confidence is returning stronger than ever. The power of positive thinking can work wonders now, if you don’t let blind optimism run away with all your best ideas. But attempting to turn every brilliant thought into something tangible will ultimately do more harm than good. When the cosmos is seen through such a hopeful lens, it helps to perform a serious reality check. Fortunately, you can rely on your friends to offer the reasonable perspective you so desperately need. An objective eye sees everything.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Your diligence is finally being acknowledged and you’re receiving the recognition you deserve today. But don’t become cavalier while basking in the light of your newfound fame, even if others are applauding your contributions to a larger personal, social or political cause. It’s not healthy to dwell on past accomplishments for too long. Begin a new project that doesn’t scatter your energy, but defines your purpose. Always find time for the things that make you feel happy to be alive.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Your bubble won’t likely pop today, but it can’t grow any larger without endangering everyone inside it. The smartest way through your current dilemma of overextension is to deflate the tension before it reaches an explosive point. Acknowledge your role in creating the imbalance and accept your part in the resolution. Avoiding your responsibility by blaming others is beneath your dignity. Instead, show everyone what you’re made of and be the leader that you would follow.
