All the thinking in the world won’t improve a situation until we decide to do something with our knowledge. We’re open to many possibilities while the Moon wanders through imaginative Pisces, reminding us to open our hearts to others. But lunar oppositions to precise Mercury and propitious Jupiter in practical Virgo prompt us to focus on measurable results. The Moon’s shift into enterprising Aries inspires us to initiate bold action. 

 

 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You can tell that your world is in flux because there are more positive possibilities ahead now than negative ones. What seemed nearly impossible just yesterday is more than likely today. You don’t feel like you’re just glossing over the bad news; something is really shifting and you want to be a part of it. This is no time to idly stand by and wait for opportunity to knock on your door. President Abraham Lincoln said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” 

 

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You are often content to follow the letter of the law. In fact, sometimes the social restraints add to your productivity because you accomplish more when you’re feeling safe and secure than when you’re uncertain about your role. Nevertheless, you might attempt to bend the rules today, especially if you’re ready to try something entirely new. Your out-of-the-box behavior could surprise others, but people will stop criticizing you once they see your genius at work. Maintain your integrity and you will win over even your loudest detractors. 

 

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Although your thinking is a bit more cautious now, you still realize you will need to take a risk to get what you want. You might be tempted to run with your first idea when deciding what to do today. However, you can take a simple thought and inflate it into one that is so unrealistic that there is little chance of it manifesting. Thankfully, the potential for success grows throughout the day. Keep refining your best plans and then swing into action, but not until your heart says yes.

 

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

It’s refreshing when your social and domestic commitments don’t stand in the way of your active inner life. Fantasies continue to spin a web of enchantment today, even if you keep snapping your thoughts back to reality. Luckily, you are quite discerning now and can easily separate facts from fancy; nevertheless, you’re still eager to slip off into your daydreams whenever you get the chance. Give yourself permission to come and go between both worlds as needed. But don’t let this propitious moment pass without taking action that moves you closer to your goals.

 

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

There’s a palpable uneasiness in the air; your heart is open and ready to reveal its truth but you just don’t know how to put your feelings into words. It might be frustrating at first because you want others to see the real you rather than how you outwardly appear. Instead of spiraling into uncertainty, continue to explore your emotions as they deepen and change. If you are patient with yourself, you might just discover that your behavior is expressing everything you wanted to say. Sometimes actions really do speak louder than words.

 

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You take great comfort in knowing the facts and sticking to them in all that you do. However, you might be challenged to determine where reality ends and your dreams begin while bombastic Jupiter blows details out of proportion. Fortunately, you can stretch the truth in creative ways today, enabling you to find ingenious solutions to the same problems that stumped you yesterday. Let your faith be bigger than your fear. 

 

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

There’s no urgency to share all your fantasies today; in fact, one of the most thrilling parts of your private explorations is knowing that you can keep them entirely to yourself. Nevertheless, it certainly could be more fun if you tell your dreams to someone you trust. However, you don’t really know what might happen if you open the door to your inner world. Although you might be judged or even rejected, you also could be embraced for your courage. The risk of saying nothing is the greatest risk of all. 

 

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You’re ready to fly today, even if you have multiple destinations in mind. In fact, you’re so eager to launch into your future that your lack of wings might not even be enough to stop you. Paradoxically, you’re not interested in making it up as you go. Although optimistic Jupiter encourages impatient Mars to make a move, you can feel the weight of consequences lurking around the corner. You know that irresponsible behavior won’t serve you well. Continue to consider all the options until one stands out so far above the rest that you know it’s yours.

 

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Although all signals appear to be giving you the green light today, you feel the looming conjunction of hot Mars and cold Saturn close on your tail. You want to join a party already in progress or head off on a little adventure of your own, but common sense prevails when it comes to your calendar. Nevertheless, you can still enjoy the evening, with or without others, as long as you maintain control over your schedule. Don’t rush anything now; everything will fall into place when the time is right. 

 

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

The more grandiose the adventure, the more eager you are to embark. You’re typically the realistic one who needs to keep your feet on the ground. However, you’re tired of always coloring within the lines. You like the idea of loosening up and wandering off the beaten path now. Sometimes it feels good to relax and have faith that everything will turn out for the best. Just make sure to keep the end game in mind. If you need to reclaim control for any reason, you can be back in the driver’s seat in a moment’s notice. 

 

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Surprising others with your eclectic beliefs or your open-minded approach to life never gets old. Thankfully, you have a chance to test the limits today when sharing your feelings with a family member or close friend. You’re particularly aware that rules of etiquette can make it easier to mask complicated emotions. However, your curiosity allows you to play with the edges as you explore the deeper side of relationships. Nevertheless, remember that pushing your boundaries doesn’t mean it’s okay to push anyone else’s. 

 

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You’re intrigued by someone’s invitation today because it sounds like so much fun. The timing might be perfect because you’re looking forward to doing something special now. However, there could be more going on than meets the eye. Be certain that everyone’s agenda is on the table from the beginning since it may be awkward to change your mind once you say yes. Thankfully, your actions have more immediate consequences as the day progresses, so don’t hesitate to speak your truth and act accordingly.
