We are feeling a mixture of excitement and restraint today, and might not be able to tell which route to follow. The adventurous Sagittarius Moon invites us to look to the distant future with optimism, yet her dance with stern Saturn makes us justify our bright ideas and far-reaching plans. However, this cosmic caution is counterbalanced by expansive Jupiter’s unstable alignment with erratic Uranus that opens doors and topples the walls of safety. 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

Paradoxically, there are so many options available now you can’t seem to decide which one to pursue. A thrilling connection between unpredictable Uranus and jubilant Jupiter has hope springing forth from the farthest reaches of your imagination, teasing you with endless possibilities. Although you’re itching to start a new venture, you may be temporarily thwarted in your efforts. Relax into the flow of the universe; your need for unfettered freedom will not wane anytime soon.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Reality imposes itself on you with a vengeance today, requiring accountability for any recent lack of discipline in financial matters. Fortunately, the need for clarification with others fosters a sense of trust and encourages sincere communication. Meanwhile, brilliant ideas flow through your mind like seeds in the wind. It’s up to you to catch the best ones and nurture them until they grow into tangible alternatives. Shifting from talk to action creates something lasting out of this deluge of information.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Metaphysical earthquakes can shake your life, upsetting the status quo and inspiring radical change. However, the Moon’s conjunction with nay-saying Saturn in your 7th House of Partnerships also brings a person into your life that appears to stand in the way of your progress. Nevertheless, the real obstacles are internal and it’s up to you to process your own resistance. If you avoid the temptation to promise more than you can deliver, you’ll soon see where the current transformation might lead.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Fully appreciating your current circumstances can be tricky now as boredom motivates you to initiate impulsive action. Although you may be eager to make big changes in your life, it will take time for the long-term effects of today’s intentions to manifest. It feels as if you’re listening to a different drummer, yet it’s wise to save your wildest dancing until you see how everything unfolds. Be patient; once you alter the direction of your new path, it will take on a brilliant life of its own.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Your creativity may be blocked by a temporary lack of confidence today, but an unexpected encounter could flip your perspective upside down before you know it. Irrepressible Uranus zaps boisterous Jupiter in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem, suddenly opening the floodgates to self-expression. A person or an idea that seems too outrageous at first can trigger a stroke of genius that elevates your game to the next level. The only limits that exist now are the worn-out constraints of your own mind.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You can turn the sourest of grapes into the sweetest of wine if you’re willing to focus on the potential gain instead of the frustration of the present moment. Logically, you realize that a current setback might be in your best interest, even if it doesn’t feel so good now. Avoid the temptation to withdraw today; instead, make a commitment to engage in the process of metamorphosis as you free the butterfly from the restraints of the cocoon.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

You must swallow an unpleasant dose of reality today, but this harsh medicine can help you to stabilize your closest relationships. The Moon’s conjunction with pragmatic Saturn in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment requires you to approach your plans in a down-to-earth manner now. The chances for success are excellent if you clearly state your goals to everyone involved. The first step to reaching the mountain’s summit is deciding to make the climb. Sharing your aspirations with your supporters makes chasing your dreams more fun.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

It’s never too late to manifest positive growth in your career and achieve greater financial stability. The Moon’s conjunction with crystallizing Saturn in your 2nd House of Personal Resources is a quiet reminder to conserve your energy while working toward your goals. However, an electric Jupiter-Uranus misalignment is a loud wake-up call that opens your eyes and reveals how much ground you still have to cover. Stay open to changes that can increase your freedom, even if you need to take a calculated risk with money or in love to make the most of this propitious planetary energy.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You might consciously decide to maintain a serious attitude today while the Moon is constrained by somber Saturn in your sign. However, you can’t seem to make the ripples of excitement disappear as bountiful Jupiter connects with electrifying Uranus. Unfortunately, you may already be overloaded with work and it’s not a good idea to voluntarily add anything else to the pile. Nevertheless, you’re driven to capture the elusive thrill before the lightning show ends. Staying calm in the midst of a creative storm is your key to receiving the gift of cosmic awareness.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Someone might throw a monkey wrench of unexpected information into your world today, requiring fast thinking and emotional flexibility on your part. Meanwhile, you’re more serious than ever about embracing the power of now and simultaneously creating a positive impact on your future. This alternating pattern of expansion and contraction can feel contradictory, but it blesses you with spiritual insights that are well worth the stress. Ultimately, an unexpected awakening delivered by the shock of Uranus can bring you an enlightened sense of freedom if you’re willing to be open to change.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

It’s annoying if you can see the amazing alternatives all around you, yet still feel restricted in a way that prevents you from having too much fun. Thankfully, your self-restraint is rewarded if you work hard to fulfill your social and professional obligations. Nevertheless, the weight of heavy responsibility is counterbalanced by buoyant Jupiter’s connection to wild Uranus, tantalizing you with mind-blowing possibilities when you look out toward the distant horizon. Logic tells you to avoid the more exciting path, yet your heart won’t settle for anything less.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Overcoming criticism may feel like an impossible task, especially since the harder you try today, the farther you seem to wander off course. Ironically, a flexible attitude allows you to find useful solutions within the information explosion generated by the brilliant Jupiter-Uranus alignment. Although your inner voice is warning you to abandon your foolish expectations, rebellious Uranus has little respect for the laws of reality. Spontaneous actions can work against your best interests now, so walk carefully — don’t run — toward your dreams.
