We’re not satisfied with the status quo today, so we may stir up a bit of mischief as the assertive Aries Moon connects with flirtatious Venus and jovial Jupiter. However, we might be too quick to go out on a limb before we test its strength. Meanwhile, we’re willing to fight for our freedom of choice while Venus in whimsical Gemini dances with sexy Mars and potent Pluto. Exercising a touch of self-restraint prevents trouble down the road. 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You might believe you possess superhero powers, enabling you to succeed at almost anything you wish. Thankfully, you can turn a disagreement into a lovefest of mutual admiration by focusing on the positive potential rather than falling into the competitive trap. The answers are not floating around on the surface now; you must go deep to open your mind wide enough to let a new vision in. Be unwavering in your determination and keep your eyes on your goal. Showing others what you can do leads to personal satisfaction.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You’re excited because there are so many different things to do today that sound like fun. However, you also like the idea of staying home and relaxing. You might feel as if you’re caught in the middle, unable to decide whether to head out in search of a new experience or hide out away from the maddening crowds. Fortunately, you don’t have to choose one or the other; you can do a little of each if you manage your time wisely.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Surrounding yourself with friends and family is a perfect way to pass the time today. You’re looking forward to resuming interesting conversations with people you admire while sharing some fine food and drink. There’s nothing wrong with a little self-indulgence now as long as you don’t overdo it. Although you can’t tell anyone else what to do, you can respect your personal limits. Publilius Syrus penned, “From the errors of others, a wise man corrects his own.”

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

You may try to deflect some of your current feelings because you don’t want to put yourself in an emotionally vulnerable position. Although your preferences are very strong today, going along with someone else’s plan could be logistically less complicated. Nevertheless, it’s a smart idea to let others know what you want without expecting them to take responsibility for your needs. Transparency is the fastest route to intimacy.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You can’t contain yourself today because every thought that crosses your brain leads you on an exciting journey of unlimited possibilities. Paradoxically, you might be quite satisfied without attempting to turn any single idea into reality. Your greatest adventure is the one that takes place between your two ears. Of course, real-world experiences can be magical, but aren’t necessary now for you to have a pleasurable time. Imagination is the playground of the mind.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Friends and family seem to look to you for guidance, expecting you to play the role of social director today. However, you are not inclined to take control, especially if you don’t have a specific agenda in mind. In fact, you might choose a different sort of indulgence and head off on a little shopping spree. Rather than seeking joy in the company of others, you could find a sliver of happiness by acquiring something beautiful that will serve a lasting purpose in your life. Karl Marx wrote, “Nothing can have value without being an object of utility.”

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

People may seem overly assertive today, prompting you to question everyone’s motives. However, their behavior might turn passive-aggressive, denying that they expect anything from you. Although you can see through their claims of innocence, you really don’t want to confront anyone further and end up in a protracted confrontation. Take a few steps back now and reestablish your emotional boundaries. Author Mandy Hale wrote, “Pick your battles. You don’t have to show up to every argument you’re invited to.”

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You are bored by the thought of running errands today in the same old way you do all the time. You wish you could turn your tedious routine upside down simply to alleviate the monotony. Unfortunately, you might make more work for yourself than necessary by taking your need for freedom of expression too far. In the long run, it’s smarter to aim for efficiency rather than inventiveness. Fulfilling your obligations as quickly as you can leaves you plenty of time for more creative pursuits later on.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Your imagination is on fire today, yet you’re not content to just sit back and dream. You’re eager for some action but might not have anything solid on your schedule yet. Thankfully, you’re open to anyone’s invitation if it sounds like a fun distraction. Just be careful about taking your search for adventure to extremes; agreeing to join someone on a nature walk is substantially different than embarking on a survival expedition. Everything will make sense in your world if you maintain a balanced perspective.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

You might be willing to step into uncharted emotional territory today, as long as you’re the one calling the shots. You can see the positive potential of exploring your feelings with a trusted friend or lover now. However, you quickly grow anxious if someone else is in control and you’re ready to change the subject. Fortunately, people will be more understanding than you think if you simply explain your fears prior to initiating a serious conversation. Honesty saves everyone’s time.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Relationship issues can be complicated by your conflicting desires today. Your apparent confidence and direct communication style signal your willingness to open your heart during an intimate chat. However, you are more self-protective than you seem, leading others to move the conversation along faster than you prefer. Thankfully, once you realize that you’re sending mixed messages, you can do something about it. Don’t hang a sign on your door that says, “Come In” when you really mean “Enter at Your Own Risk.”

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Participating in a group activity could be very stimulating, but you might prefer to enjoy some quiet time alone today. You love hanging out with your friends, but you have mixed emotions that need to be sorted out before you lose yourself in the noise of a social event. Ironically, you could overcompensate by displaying an air of bravado now because you feel guilty about your choice to exclude others. Poet Rupi Kaur wrote, “You must want to spend the rest of your life with yourself first.”
