Critical events have transpired that cannot be undone. Thankfully, the Moon eases into diplomatic Libra, offering her assistance to help us put our lives back into balance. Nevertheless, several otherworldly aspects trigger unexpected twists in our stories as the winds of fate blow us off our predetermined paths. Although we seek objective fairness, we also need to protect our hearts in a world filled with so much negativity.

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You’re not sure whether to laugh or cry. On one hand, you feel a great sense of relief when the Moon slips into gracious Libra. You thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with others, even allowing them to take the reins of leadership for a while. On the other hand, everyone seems unable to make even the simplest choices. Your nerves wear thin as you wait for someone else to decide something that you could have done immediately. Saint Francis de Sales wrote, “Have patience with all things, but first of all with yourself.”

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Your balanced approach at work enables you to objectively assess all the tasks on your plate today, and then judiciously prioritize them. You avoid playing favorites; each job is judged on the same criteria. However, it turns out that your agenda may be more stable than your immediate environment. You might be required to revisit your decision-making process several times throughout the day as circumstances evolve. The flexible shall inherit the Earth.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

You are downloading radical concepts from the far reaches of the cosmos today. Your ideas are so strange that they might as well be coming from alien spaceships. Regardless of their origin, your plans attract widespread support now, partly because people admire your originality. Nevertheless, at some point the energy shifts and you will be judged solely on your performance. All the clever thoughts in the world are not a substitute for a program that actually works.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Balancing your social inclinations with your need to be alone requires a tricky set of moves today. Normally, you can’t have it both ways but playing two sides of a coin seems like the sensible thing to do now. Nevertheless, the complexity of finding a stable place you can call home is a daunting prospect. Once your foundation is in place, it’s just a matter of determinedly working toward your goals, no matter the obstacles you encounter along the way. Gordon Hinckley wrote, “Without hard work nothing grows but weeds.”

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You don’t want to waste any energy today, but you may end up losing efficiency anyhow. Your desire to please everyone ultimately leads you to pleasing no one at all. Ironically, setting new priorities based on fulfilling your own needs leaves more people satisfied than you might expect. Fortunately, there is no reason to explain your decision-making process since you can proudly let your day-to-day productivity be its own justification. The distance between your dreams and reality is called action.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You might seem a bit ungrounded today, but some of your cosmic drifting is by choice. You can see the benefits of exploring the distant reaches of your inner cosmos now as you continue to learn about the power of the mind. But your metaphysical interests are not about walking around with your head in the clouds. Instead you are like Prometheus, reaching into the divine proportion and stealing lightning from the gods. You have a purpose and a plan. People should either help you along or step out of your way.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

It’s hard to know exactly when or where your fair-minded thinking turns into ambivalence. You Libras are infamous for avoiding decisions, but you’re not necessarily searching for greener pastures. In fact, you will attempt to take the more conservative path now, because there’s safety in returning to old familiar stomping grounds. People rely on your objectivity; you are not only a mouthpiece for many, you are a treasure.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You’re not sure which side of the veil is more real today. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to explore the wide spectrum of personal experiences and political shenanigans that clutter the airwaves now. Fantasies continue to run on their own batteries which don’t appear to lose power, while the demands of your earthly responsibilities prevent you from wandering too far off course. Watch the distant horizons for signs. Keep an open mind as you consider all the ways you can move into the future. Endless possibilities exist just beyond your belief system.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You could blow people’s minds when you tell them about your pet project today. However, they may stare at you in amazement while you share your plans. It’s nearly impossible for you to discern if others are in shock or if they believe you’re delusional. But it’s not your job to be a tour guide, revisiting recently traveled ground. Regardless of your politics, you are energetically progressive now, looking forward to the future rather than gazing in the rearview mirror at the past. Focus on what you can change rather than on what is broken.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Relationships continue to play a key role in your life, but you might feel a bit discouraged today if everything isn’t matching your high expectations. Although you’ve spent many hours lost in conversation with your friend or partner, you’re still untangling the messiest parts of your romantic entanglements. At some point, you need to call it quits. Neither one of you are at fault; it’s just that the answers are not going to materialize overnight. Paradoxically, resolution occurs when you stop thinking there’s a problem. Sleep on it and see how you both feel in the morning.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Talking about everything you’re going to do at work actually gets in the way of you doing it. Nevertheless, you have high hopes and plan to accomplish a lot today. But everything takes longer than you expect, leaving you short on time. Working harder now won’t earn you the results you seek. Step back from your commitments, reevaluate your recent plans, and reassess the steps you must take to reach your goals. A fresh perspective might be all that is needed to rattle your cage and free up your calendar. Words are meaningless without intent and determination.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You are being tested today to see how well you can straddle two worlds. On one hand, your imagination calls, asking you to leave your mundane responsibilities behind and step into a magical world where time and space lose meaning. You are like a willing Alice, eyes wide open in Wonderland. But on the other hand, your three-dimensional obligations peck at you like a hungry bird, trying to persuade you to reenter the black and white mundane realm of car maintenance, rent checks and grocery shopping. Nevertheless, walking with one foot here and one foot there is a metaphysical trick you mastered long ago.
