Integrating experiences that occur at the edge of our perceptions can be tricky business, and a flurry of otherworldly aspects may be quite disorienting today. Confusion leads us to make snap decisions without actually knowing all the details. Thankfully, the perceptive Scorpio Moon forms an emotionally stable Grand Water Trine with the willful Sun and imaginative Neptune, reminding us to rely on our intuition when we’re short on facts.

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

It may appear as if your plans are falling apart, but nothing is quite as it seems today. Although your first impulse might be to jump in and try to sew up every little thread that starts to unravel, you’ll only work yourself into a state of frustration. Instead, acknowledge that you can’t just wave your magic wand now and make everything okay. Choosing your battles carefully means that some conflicts must be left behind. If you fight them all, you’ll be too tired to win the war.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You’re able to hold your course in the face of unrelenting pressure to change your destination. But fending off people who might slow you down is not the real problem. Unfortunately, an inkling of self-doubt could grow into your nemesis as the day wears on. However, shifting your reaction from cerebral to emotional changes everything in a moment. Giving up control of some activities empowers you to gain control elsewhere. “Less is more” is not just a cliché to make you feel better; it’s the truth.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

You might aim all your pent-up aggression at one person today, but chances are it will be for naught. Instead of finding a scapegoat on which to pin blame, accept your role in the interpersonal dynamics that continue to stir up discomfort. However, you will benefit the most, not by speaking truth to power, but by following through when it comes to your integrity. Letting your emotions get the best of you can bring out the worst in you. Respect is a two-way street.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Although sharing your fantasies takes courage, it also requires a methodical approach today. Your feelings are running deeper now, so just blurting your truth at the first opportunity might seem out of context to others. Don’t just jump directly to the punchline; tell your story from the beginning so everyone can follow along. Often, the fastest route isn’t the best one when it comes to delivering your message. Consider your audience before opening your mouth.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Holding onto your feelings won’t further your cause today, even if it seems safer to keep them out of sight. You might be less vulnerable when you’re emotionally isolated, but there’s too severe of a cost. Don’t worry about micromanaging; if a conversation veers off course, let it. Paradoxically, the less control you maintain, the better the outcome — even if there are a few twists and turns along the way. The best rewards come when you’re not expecting any at all.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You are receiving messages from the cosmos that remind you to stay focused while letting the distractions grab someone else. People might even overtly try to get you to join the party while you reassess the advantages of resisting any social activities. Although others probably mean well, you simply have too much on your plate today to seek additional forms of self-expression. Do what you Virgos do best: set priorities and pursue them with unwavering determination.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

You desperately want everything to make sense today, but it doesn’t. Just as all the separate pieces of information start to fall into place, you suddenly realize that your basic assumption is wrong. Truth slips out of your hands before you can firmly grasp it. It’s as if reality is playing games with you by eluding your logic and testing your resolve. Paradoxically, it’s easier to make a decision when you don’t try to rationalize your choice. Trust your gut now; it knows what your head hasn’t figured out yet.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

Appearances, including yours, aren’t always something you can control. Much to your chagrin, everyone seems to know all about the very same things you wish to keep secret today. The Moon is visiting your passionate sign, reflecting your feelings through your attitude, regardless of what you say or do. Stop resisting the obvious and open your heart. Buddha said, “Three things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon, and the Truth.”

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Of course, you know the difference between vivid fantasies and mundane realities. However, a deeper and more existential sense of self-doubt may be lurking beneath the surface now. Your uncertainty is not apparent to others but could stand between you and a magical moment. Unfortunately, your lack of confidence makes it tough to get over this little bump in the road. Just take a few steps back to regroup and try again. No matter what, do something today that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

You can tell that something is off today, as if you’re not living up to someone’s expectations. Unfortunately, you don’t know what others want from you today, and when asked they have nothing relevant to say. This weird energy makes it nearly impossible to go off on your own while your coworkers languish in denial. Share your concerns with your peers since you’re all in this together. Although it takes a village, there are no observers; everyone is a participant.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Although there are discussions yet to happen at work, everything seems to be rapidly moving along on the right trajectory now. You don’t need to tell anyone about your long-range plans yet; they are your business and no one else’s concern. In the meantime, step up to the plate and fiercely wield your power. It’s not your problem if your behavior makes someone uncomfortable today. Continue striving for excellence; success is yours for the taking.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

People might assume you are more easygoing than you actually feel today. The Moon in fellow water sign Scorpio emphasizes the intensity of your emotions, but her Grand Trine softens your presentation. Nevertheless, you’re not one to back down from any sort of idle threat. But rather than waiting to go on the defense, be clear about your boundaries right from the start. The more clarity there is about your preferences now, the better it is for everyone involved.
