Rather than spontaneously reacting to circumstances beyond our control, the rational Libra Moon inspires us to calmly reflect on our changing situations without initiating action of any kind. However, a sumptuous Venus-Jupiter connection entices us with the possibilities of pleasure while an active Mercury enables us to talk about our dilemmas. Nevertheless, the plot thickens when the Moon sinks into Scorpio’s emotional depths.

 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You’re motivated to resolve an unsettled relationship issue today, but the discussion might not go as smoothly as you wish. Nevertheless, burying your emotions isn’t a viable strategy in the long run. Your good intentions aren’t enough; you must also be willing to compromise to get what you want. Acknowledge the validity of the other person’s feelings, and then negotiate to find common ground where you both can stand in comfort.

 

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

The tried-and-true method that enables you to finish your work on another day isn’t sufficient now because of your unrelenting desire to surround yourself with beauty. It’s not enough to just answer a lingering question or handle a nagging problem; the peace-seeking Libra Moon also wants the solution to be elegant. However, letting go of your unrealistic expectations might be necessary to finalize a plan that will be practical enough to work. Luckily, making a small sacrifice pays off sooner than you think in ways you can’t imagine.

 

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Grab an opportunity to do something special with children today if you are given the chance; or if that’s not feasible, try unleashing your own inner child on the world. Either way, you can enjoy some playtime now that the Moon is prancing through your 5th House of Fun and Games. A spontaneous activity could turn your day into one that is delightful for everyone, even if it means throwing out previous plans. Joy trumps negativity, so spread it around wherever you go.

 

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

You may be feeling ambivalent about socializing with friends or relatives today. You look forward to kicking back and catching up with everyone, but you also worry that someone might pressure you into taking sides in an ongoing conflict. Spending a bit of time alone could be your best option since there’s no need to justify your choices to anyone else. After you regroup, you can return in a much improved state of mind willing to help out where you can. 

 

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You want to maintain some control over your schedule, but your long-term planning may fall apart when an unexpected obstacle appears in your path now. Instead of struggling to stick to your preset schedule today, respond with common sense and quick thinking rather than rigidity and panic. Take care of the most pressing issues first while allowing the less important ones to temporarily fall to the wayside. Setting priorities is useful as long as you are adaptable when change is required.

 

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You find making financial decisions is painful today because there are no easy answers. Rationalizing your extravagance is a waste of energy now if you’re longing for something outside of your budget. It really doesn’t matter if your potential acquisition is a good deal; save your money and spend it another time when you’re more certain about what you need. A cool and calm approach can help to stave off unnecessary stress when it comes time to pay the bills. When in doubt, err on the side of caution.

 

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

Don’t give in to someone else’s pressure to choose one answer over another unless your position is absolutely clear to you. Your ambivalence might annoy others, but it may also be your greatest strength today. It’s even harder to take sides because you can see an issue from both perspectives now that the reflective Moon is back in your sign. Keeping an open mind enables you to play the role of a shuttle diplomat, going back and forth until the best solution becomes apparent to both camps. 

 

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

Although you desperately want to understand the symbols of your subconscious mind, you could work yourself into a state of frustration if you assume that every image contains a hidden meaning. The Moon’s current visit to your 12th House of Spirituality amplifies the significance of your dreams, but you may have trouble deciphering them into concrete interpretations. Ironically, excessive analysis detracts from experiencing the magic of myth, so trust in the mystery and let go. 

 

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You may feel disillusioned today if you share something of interest with your friends, only to receive their cold shoulders. But they might not be as negative as you assume because you could have set unattainable expectations before giving anyone a chance to respond. You’ll earn more support if you involve others in the process than if you overstate your case with a dramatic show and tell. Start off slowly and build a solid foundation before adding more levels of complexity. Keep it simple for the best results.

 

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Your strong convictions about a current situation are better expressed today than kept quiet. There’s no room for playing games; just let others know your opinion at the earliest opportunity. Managing hidden agendas isn’t worth the effort when it’s healthier to put everything out on the table. Nevertheless, overcoming someone’s objections serves to strengthen your plan and define your character. Resistance may fade when everyone knows exactly where you stand.

 

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

It may seem as if your friend or partner is maneuvering to earn credit for something that might not be deserved. Your annoyance could become an issue because you don’t think that people are paying enough attention to your accomplishments today. Even if you believe you’re completely objective, subtle biases sill arise from a temporary lack of support. Don’t blame others for your hurt feelings now; work on improving your own game, instead. Success is the best revenge. 

 

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You have a rather low tolerance for anyone who promises the sky and then spends too much time on public relations, rather than just rolling up their sleeves and doing the work. You don’t want to make judgments, but it becomes more challenging when someone doesn’t hold up their end of the deal now. Unfortunately, openly criticizing others probably won’t help the current situation. Take the high road today; bite your tongue and wait to see what tomorrow brings.
