We might wonder if we’re on the right track as the confused Pisces Moon bounces from one stressful aspect to another. Meanwhile, rational Mercury encourages us to talk about our shortcomings as it opposes Chiron the Wounded Healer. Although we can’t hide behind a spiritual veil, it’s challenging to know how much to reveal all at once. In fact, we may need to call in the emotional cleanup crew after mischievous Mercury mixes it up with wild Uranus. 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You’re desperately aiming to finish up your work before the weekend, but it’s no easy matter to maintain your focus today. Your emotions are being dragged all over the place as people seem to come out of the woodwork just to create trouble. You might be unable to fit all the pieces of the puzzle back into place at first. However, you’ll surely learn an important lesson about single-mindedness if you simply set your priorities early in the day. You can’t win unless you’re willing to be in the game.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Although you might try to be rational, there’s no straight path to success today. Normally, your steady-as-she-goes demeanor is enough to keep you on track and everything in your world moving forward. But this strategic method only seems to land you further behind now. Nevertheless, there is hope — assuming you’re ready to surrender control. Paradoxically, you will soar through the day with flying colors if you can stay open to the idea of change.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

A pile of responsibilities at work leaves little time for any other activities today. You’re probably not very happy about needing to postpone personal pleasure while the spacey Pisces Moon reminds you how much fun it is to just hang out with friends. But don’t get overly attached to everyone else’s expectations; in the final analysis, there’s only one person to whom you are beholden. When you feel a sense of proud accomplishment, your satisfaction will rub off on others.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

So many thoughts are running around inside your head that you don’t know where to start. Each time you begin a conversation today, it feels as if you should have said something else. It’s like you’re trying to sing karaoke yet the music keeps changing every time you sing a few notes. Nevertheless, don’t quit when you are so close to expressing your creativity; your unwavering perseverance will pay off in the long run. Failure is not the opposite of success; it’s a stepping stone to success.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You are on a mission and will not be lured off track by anyone’s insistence or attempts at persuasion. However, a morning of fuzzy thinking gets you off to such a slow start that you’re unsure if you will make any progress today. Luckily, this is a great opportunity to put your thoughts in order once and for all. But keep in mind there won’t be any overnight miracles now; the work isn’t glamorous and you must reach your goals the good old-fashioned way. Sweat plus sacrifice equals success.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Household responsibilities are multiplying faster than you can keep up with them. Thankfully, you don’t need to finish every last chore today, just make sure you get a good start on them. Meanwhile, a close friend or partner may serve up an outrageous idea that’s out of the question in its original form. Relentlessly bring every new option back down to the ground by assessing the pros and cons. Pursue only the ones that make practical sense after running it past your critical eye. Your standards are high for a reason.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

You want to work on your own today because you believe you will stay focused if you don’t encounter a lot of distractions. However, you still may require some support along the way to recharge your spirits when you’re feeling depleted. Instead of just declining all invitations now, do what you Libras do best. Put yourself in the middle of the extremes by carefully balancing your social obligations with your personal desires. If you play your cards right, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You’re connecting the dots with your peers today — at work or in the neighborhood. Either way, you’re a part of a larger cause that reinforces your personal identity. However, you still must leave fringe facets of your personality out of your interactions because others might not approve. But there’s no reason to compromise your fundamental core values, for that’s where you derive your strength. You can’t understand the power of a community until you become a proud member of one.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

It seems as if you are nearing the finish line on a marathon at work, but you can’t slow down yet. There are a few more hurdles to overcome before you can take a rest and catch your breath. You’re in tune with your emotional roots now, whether they stem from family or business. But either way, you may be slightly out of your element. Face it, you can’t fit a round peg in a square hole, and the sooner you realize this, the happier you will be. Embracing what makes you unique gives everyone else the chance to do the same.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Making plans can be a real challenge if you’re unsure of your destination; nevertheless, you might go ahead and try to create a road map anyhow. Unfortunately, putting the cart before the horse is not the most effective method of transportation. Take a few steps back and consider all the possibilities for your next adventure. There’s no reason to obsess over the details until the larger pieces of the puzzle all fit together.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

It’s safer to delve into the emotional realms if you narrow your vision and concentrate on one aspect of your feelings at a time. But even if you’re certain that your new conversational topic isn’t controversial, the discussion still takes a weird turn and you find yourself in a dangerous metaphysical neighborhood. Keep aiming your thoughts upward toward the sky; dismiss any negativity or doubt from your mind. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You can’t trust others today because their plans seem out of touch with reality. But once you thoroughly vet someone’s idea, you might actually discover they are on to something brilliant. Naturally, you don’t want to waste energy on a wild goose chase that leads you nowhere in particular, but neither do you want to miss out on an unexpected opportunity. Exercising caution at the beginning of a conversation can save you endless hours of not getting anywhere at all. Performing your due diligence pays off.
