The Moon swims into compassionate Pisces, melting apparent boundaries. We become more empathetic as a new flavor of energy drifts in from the cosmos, allowing us to sense the movement of all the other fish in the sea. Meanwhile, a new astrological month begins as the Sun proudly roars, announcing its arrival in the sign of Leo. We are eager to strut our stuff and dramatically express our hearts’ intentions. 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

Contradictions abound as you’re torn between hiding your feelings now and throwing caution to the wind. On one hand, the Moon’s visit to your 12th House of Invisibility reflects your need to retreat into the unseen reaches of your imagination. On the other hand, the Sun’s shift into lively Leo and your 5th House of Spontaneity motivates you to open your heart as wide as you can. Don’t worry if you choose to bury your head in the sand today. There will be plenty of time to come out and play in the days ahead.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You’re quite intuitive when it comes to social interactions today and you are willing to meet people more than halfway. You can postpone your agenda, tune into the needs of others and work toward the common good. However, your connection with your inner sense of purpose remains strong, even if it conflicts with your outer behavior. Holding both perspectives is a challenge but is well worth the effort. The best way to multiply your happiness is to share it.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Communication is almost always a top priority for you chatty Twins but getting your message across is not enough today. You want everyone to see you in motion so you can be recognized for what you do. You may even go out of your way to put on such a memorable performance that you transform yourself into a caricature. Don’t focus on how others might perceive you; just show up as the best version of you that you can muster up. An original is worth more than a copy.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

You need to work behind the scenes today so your insecurities can dissipate before they mess up a relationship of interest. Although you may be living in your fantasies, the real world seems too far away from your ideal situation. Don’t lose faith; a pinch of hope is the cosmic superglue that holds the future together. Remember when Cinderella sang, “A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep.”

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Voices of ancestors are whispering in your ear today and your subconscious mind is activated by unseen forces. Unfortunately, all this psychic activity can be quite distracting as you try to go about your day in the mundane world. Luckily, the Sun’s return to animated Leo and your 1st House of Self boosts your energy and motivates you to complete whatever you start. Keep your eyes on the finish line until you reach your destination.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

The more answers you seek today, the more questions you have. People around you seem to harbor bigger dreams than ever once the surreal Pisces Moon enters your 7th House of Others. However, you are clinging to a few fantasies of your own and might be unwilling to let them go. Don’t hide your desires; the sooner you share them with those you trust, the more help you will receive. Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

An increasing number of social commitments begins to infringe on your personal time. Nevertheless, you’re a champion at balancing your needs with others and happily enter the complicated dance by taking everyone’s interests into consideration now. Establish your work pattern early in the day and stick to it. Your performance may require extra energy today, but finding your mojo and expressing it is the ticket to your current happiness.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You might not be able to separate your work from your creative pursuits today. Everything you do has the potential to be thoroughly enjoyable but you are driven to reach for a higher goal. If promotions or salary increases are not likely, it may be time to widen your choices and think about other options. But contemplating the possibilities is not the same as pursuing them. For now, don’t make any choices you cannot undo. The wheels are still in spin and your world is still in motion.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You’re not sure how to proceed on the home front, especially if you’re running into walls every which way you turn. Although you might use techniques of creative visualization to break through the restraints, you have trouble knowing when to stop. Don’t wait until you’ve gone too far. Pare back your plans and make time to put up your feet. As Carolyn Myss writes, “The soul always knows what to do to heal itself; the challenge is to silence the mind.”

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Your intentions are not as straightforward once the Moon enters the murky waters of Pisces today. You might even feel as if you’ve lost your way, but this is just a temporary state of affairs because you gain momentum from the Sun’s shift into bold Leo and your 8th House of Transformation. You can’t keep things as they are; something needs to change. Once you release your hold on the status quo, the skies will begin to clear and the path ahead will be easier to follow.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

It’s not much fun when the Moon drifts through spacey Pisces today, unless you relinquish power and stop trying to figure everything out. You don’t possess all the answers now, yet the potential for growth is greater than ever while the willful Sun transits through your 7th House of Partners this month. You might not have the clarity you need to make an important decision, but solutions begin to show up when other people get involved. Many hands make light work.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Your current bout with indecision might hit too close to home as the emotional Moon returns to your changeable sign today. Your moods are swinging so fast that it’s nearly impossible to keep up with them now. Don’t even try; give yourself permission to let your feelings run with the wolves. In the meanwhile, focus all your attention on specific projects at work. Balance these two approaches for your best chance at finding answers that make sense.
