Our lives are complicated by unspoken words and feelings that lurk in the shadows. The secretive Scorpio Moon reminds us that metamorphosis occurs in the dark. But the radiant Leo Sun shines the light of awareness into the night, turning the invisible into the obvious. We’re intrigued by the power of the unconscious as perceptive Mercury trines mysterious Pluto. Nevertheless, our brains are supercharged and our powers of persuasion are strong.

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You have the proper words at your disposal today to describe those feelings that are typically not easy to talk about. Fortunately, you won’t be deterred from speaking your piece while persuasive Mercury teams up with relentless Pluto, empowering you to press your point until you convince others that your position is a wise one. Nevertheless, there’s still room for improvement which means it’s crucial to listen to the critical feedback you receive. The Buddha said, “Three things cannot be long hidden: The Sun, the Moon, and the Truth.”

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Someone’s response to your actions might feel like an attack on your judgment. However, it may be that your thin-skinned reaction turns constructive criticism into a personal affront. Thankfully, clear thinking and strategic planning smooth out ruffled feathers with stabilizing aspects from Mercury to Pluto. Instead of escalating an unnecessary conflict by over-personalizing everything you hear today, sink beneath the surface and connect with the deeper message.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Mixed signals at work could prompt you to think you lost your way today, yet wallowing in self-doubt won’t accomplish anything. However, you are motivated to clear the air in order to improve the current communication dynamics. Thankfully, you can quickly develop a diplomatic strategy to resolve the tension while interactive Mercury trines evolutionary Pluto. Trust earned by hard work and accountability invites deeper discussions and important insights, which in turn can produce a sensible solution to an existing problem.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Your sensitivity to the plights of others is one of your greatest gifts, but it could be the source of deeply rooted angst today. You might be slightly overwhelmed because of the magnitude of trouble you see in the world or in the suffering of those around you. But instead of withdrawing to nurse your pain, you have a chance to help people by participating in meaningful dialogue. Rather than creating an emotional gulf between you and your loved ones, a supportive Mercury-Pluto trine opens communication channels so you don’t feel so alone. Reaching out places peace of mind within reach.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You seem to be at odds with the world today, but in your heart of hearts you know you’re right. Unfortunately, everyone is so entrenched in their own positions that there’s no resolution to be found. Tempers might flare at first, but Mercury’s trine to Pluto allows you to bring the conversation back to the real issues. Discussing what motivated the argument in the first place is your key to resolving the differences, no matter how deep they run. Author Dorothy Thomas wrote, “Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.”

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

There are many voices in your head fighting for your attention, and it is a challenge to choose which one to listen to now. You may struggle at first if you pretend to have a plan in place, yet admitting you don’t have an answer for every question reveals your vulnerable side. Mercury’s creative trine with surgical Pluto helps you cut through the clutter, dig down to the heart of the matter and communicate with conviction. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you from achieving your goal, especially yourself.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

Your values might clash with those of your friends while the Moon in your 2nd House of Core Beliefs dynamically squares the Sun in your 11th House of Community, bringing you to the edge of verbal combat. You know what you want, you express it and you’re willing to show that you mean it. Fortunately, Mercury creates an agreeable trine with evolutionary Pluto, allowing you to magically transform a potential conflict into an intimate moment if you’re willing to join someone in unknown emotional territory. Author Gail Sheehy wrote, “The delights of self-discovery are always available.”

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

Your emotional reaction is swift and strong today yet you must fight for recognition every step of the way. It’s as if everything feels more complicated than it is. People aren’t confident in your ability to keep your love light shining now. Mercury’s favorable trine to penetrating Pluto is ideal for addressing a delicate issue requiring careful communication. Thankfully, your perceptions empower your words and supply you with the information needed to prove your point. Your intuition is an endless resource if you are wise enough to use it.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You prefer to conceal your emotions today because you don’t want them to interfere with your professional activities. Your thinking is clear and deep now; your communication is concise and compelling. But working to bring your hidden feelings out into the open is only the first step to connecting with others. Ultimately, directing your attention to where it will do the greatest good is your smartest strategy. Your character’s strength is measured less by your words and more by your actions.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

You may feel underappreciated by someone close to you today. Nevertheless, you have a clear understanding of your desires, so concentrated efforts can produce dramatic results in a short amount of time. Cerebral Mercury’s creative trine with incisive Pluto deepens your insights and sharpens your words to help you encourage coworkers and friends. In the final analysis, your positivity motivates others and then cycles around to lift your spirits. The best way to multiply your happiness is to share it.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

You can’t help but bring your emotions to work with you now, even if you wish you could conveniently leave them at home. Fortunately, you can create some distance between you and your desires without denying your feelings. But you must be brave and push past your resistance to establish a deeper connection with your colleagues while Mercury forms a harmonious trine with secretive Pluto. A meaningful conversation with the right person is priceless, no matter where it takes place.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Everyone seems so practical today that it appears like you have nowhere to fit in and call home. Your emotions are so strong that you might feel a sense of alienation from those closest to you. Nevertheless, you possess plenty of perfect answers, if only you could figure out a way to get your message across. But be careful what you say when Mercury receives a passionate blast from potent Pluto, giving your words tremendous power. Your intensity can scare others away now if you put it on full blast. Ultimately, communication works best when it flows both ways.
