A conversation can lead to an annoying misunderstanding today. We’re quite chatty while a friendly Mercury-Jupiter sextile encourages communication. But rational Mercury’s awkward alignment with imaginative Neptune muddies the waters with unspoken fantasies. Dreams motivate us into action once the Moon blasts into fiery Aries. However, we may need to adjust our plans when we face unexpected resistance from an authority figure. 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

Taking other people’s schedules into consideration prior to making plans for the day is a wise strategy. Fortunately, you can feel the support of your allies now, encouraging you to promise greater participation on your part. But your follow-through might not live up to your good intentions if you get sidetracked by an unplanned setback. Rather than making excuses for falling short of your commitments, stay focused on the work at hand. You might surprise everyone, including yourself, with how much you accomplish by the end of the day.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Someone’s actions grate on your nerves today, but you might hold your tongue for the sake of harmony. You want your friends to know your thoughts, but aren’t interested in engaging in a conflict defending your position. Secretly, you wish you felt safe enough to share everything, but recent experiences suggest it’s wiser to put on a happy face and just forge ahead on your own. The Dalai Lama said, “Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.”

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

You want to come up with an amazing rationale that informs everyone of your most admirable intentions. Unfortunately, your words don’t hit the nail quite on the head, leaving others to wonder about your goals and question your motives. It’s tempting to try one more time by slowing down your delivery and explaining everything in greater detail. However, the more you talk, the greater the confusion you sow. Greek playwright Sophocles said, “Much wisdom often goes with fewer words.”

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

It might seem like someone is shutting you down today before you get to speak your piece. Or, perhaps, your progress on a project encounters resistance, making you so frustrated you’re considering resignation. Fortunately, your deep reserve of tenacity will pull you through this momentary obstruction. You’re not in this for the quick buck; your long-term goals are your priority now and your patience will be tested. Ben Franklin wrote, “Energy and persistence conquer all things.”

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Your flamboyance is being fed by people who are persuading you to gamble with your heart or your money today. You’re feeling lucky and could be convinced to take a bigger risk than is necessary. Obviously, it’s easy for others to goad you into saying yes if they are a step removed from the consequences. A temporary retreat is prudent while you fine tune your plan and prepare for the next push forward. Don’t try to rush things that need time to grow.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Your inability to explain your serious demeanor can lead to a major crisis of self-doubt today. However, questioning everything you do and say might foster character development, but it doesn’t change the interpersonal dynamics. Frustration abounds if you let your thoughts run rampant. Nevertheless, don’t back down; even giving an inch is too much at this time. Psychologist Joyce Brothers wrote, “A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success.”

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

It might appear as if your goals are self-serving but you actually are in it for the good of all. In fact, you can’t even remove yourself from the equation that connects you with everyone else, even if they resist your ideas. But don’t take no for an answer; continue to adjust your stance based upon the changing circumstances. Your current success is determined by your level of discipline and perseverance. Hope is not a strategy, persistence is.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You’re uncertain of the best way to express what’s in your heart today. However, finding a creative outlet is necessary for you to experience satisfaction in life now. Whatever methods you use to share your feelings, meticulously tailor your message for your audience. You may aspire to stir souls with your passion, but communication is a two-way street. Ask questions; there’s so much to learn from listening to someone else’s perspective, especially when you realize every person you encounter is a teacher.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Good news reinforces your positive outlook on the world today. Everything may not be perfect, but there are enough pieces in place for you to believe things are going your way. Nevertheless, you could encounter a weird form of resistance now as someone quietly undermines your accomplishments and seems to work against your progress. Although this negative wave is subtle, you don’t want to ignore it or it will result in an uncomfortable interpersonal dynamic. Norman Vincent Peale wrote, “Change your thoughts and you change your world.”

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Your sites are set and you are determined to reach your goal, no matter what. Thankfully, your current efforts are blessed and you’ll likely accomplish nearly everything you wish. Nevertheless, there are a few traps hidden along your path now, and it’s possible that they were put there by someone you know. Unfortunately, you won’t uncover the whole story yet. Instead of obsessing about something you can’t control today, just refocus and demonstrate the power of intention with your unwavering commitment to success.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Finding your rhythm may be tricky today, especially if you are trying to dance to music that can’t be heard. It’s like your radio is stuck on one station, playing your favorite song over and over. Nevertheless, the signal is faint now and try as you might, you can’t make it any clearer. Overcome your nervous stress by improvising to fill in the missing notes. Herman Melville wrote, “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You’re passionate when sharing your knowledge about healthy living with your friends at work. Although you know all your facts and figures, there still may be a logistical problem in the delivery of your data today. Your current tendency is to dismiss the details, but someone wants every last question answered. Don’t stress trying to supply the required information now. Just tell your story in a simple and truthful manner; your sincerity will do the rest.
