We look forward to a peaceful weekend, luxuriating with those we love while the Moon visits sentimental Cancer. However, the Sun’s shift into proud Leo empowers us to express what’s in our hearts and to seek recognition for who we truly are. We may reluctantly leave behind unfulfilled fantasies about an energetically quiet day and turn our attention to the possibility of the shared fun and frivolity that’s the trademark of the playful Lion.
Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
You’re on the edge of a resurgence of energy that will fuel your confidence and bring more joy into your life. Of course, a shift in your attitude won’t occur overnight, but you will likely feel more positive day by day as the radiant Sun and courageous Mars collaborate in your 5th House of Spontaneity. There’s not much you must do now; just let the current circumstances unfold while affirming better times are on the horizon. Following the words of Ram Dass, “Be here now,” might be enough to chase away any gray clouds lingering in your sky.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
There’s no reason to cling onto childhood patterns any longer, especially if they reinforce old worries about scarcity. Nevertheless, the Sun’s move into your 4th House of Home and Family invites you for a walk along Memory Lane. Looking back is healthy if it deepens your perspective on your current life. Just remember that the universe contains unlimited possibilities, so show up with a smile and do whatever you can to transform your fears into love. Zig Ziglar taught, “You can’t climb uphill by thinking downhill thoughts.”
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Although you might try to overcompensate today by displaying only your very best side, this deceptive strategy won’t work. Your positive attitude could sound disingenuous if you seem blindly optimistic about your future plans. There is no value in hiding the truth now, even if you think it is more than people can handle. You are in charge of your thoughts, so don’t dwell endlessly on those things that bend you out of shape. Stick to the facts and let others be responsible for their reactions. Sincerity is your friend.
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
ou may be relieved once the bright Sun leaves your sign today, allowing you to work your magic quietly behind the scenes. Nevertheless, you don’t want too much isolation now that the Sun is shining in expressive Leo. Although you wish you had one singular goal so you could simply get on with your business, you’re actually being pulled in two totally different directions. Ultimately, you might be happiest if you toss your previous agenda and go with the current flow. Nothing positive will be gained by trying to hang onto the illusion of control.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
You’re often resistant to change, especially if you let your notorious pride block your progress. However, you’re already walking in uncharted territory now, and your anticipation continues to build because you can’t wait to see where this current road leads. You feel like the past is behind you and the Sun’s shift into your sign today brings you the freedom to express yourself as you see fit. There’s no need to rush the creative process; everything will happen exactly on time. Alan Watts wrote, “The way to become one with the universe is to trust it.”
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
You’re disappointed to discover that someone is withholding information from you. Thankfully, you can skillfully manage the problem now that the illuminating Sun, assertive Mars and communicator Mercury are camped out in your 12th House of Secrets. An awkward situation can quickly morph into a positive one if you display confidence rather than doubt. Exploring the hidden realms of your own subconscious enables you to preemptively change the dynamics. Ultimately, following the clues you find buried deep in the shadows leads to your happiness.
Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)
You long to be free of the obligations that are restricting your personal growth. Fortunately, the brilliant Sun strides into your 11th House of Community to join forces with action-hero Mars, inspiring you to act boldly in social situations. However, there is no reason to panic and take an uncalculated risk; instead, create a strategy today that can be followed by decisive action tomorrow. President Dwight Eisenhower said, “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”
Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)
You must navigate through a tricky moment if someone believes you will automatically drop your personal priorities when asked. You prefer offering your help on your own accord and you don’t appreciate the pressure resulting from the expectations of others. People will manage without you immediately rushing to the rescue today. Carefully considering all your options before responding may signal that you don’t want anyone to take advantage of your generosity. But you can’t assume your message will be heard unless you are explicit. Cat Stevens sang, “Say what you think; think what you mean.”
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Perhaps you dream about the future to avoid dealing with the promises you made in the past. Your intentions may have been very sincere in the moment, but situations change as the months roll by. It feels as if your time is running short now and you don’t know how you’re going to fulfill your obligations. Keep in mind that even the tiniest molehills seem like mountains today. Don’t make any sudden changes to your overall strategy yet; wait a few days to see how the new landscape takes shape. Leo Tolstoy wrote, “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Having faith in yourself is crucial for success, but too much confidence can inflate your ego. Even the most surefooted Mountain Goat could slip if it’s climbing up a treacherous mountain without caution. Unfortunately, an overabundance of unnecessary bravado today might be enough to make you careless for a moment. Don’t give reality an opportunity to teach you a lesson in humility. Your best chance at reaching your ambitious destination is to focus on each step along the way. Pride always goes before a fall.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
It seems as if everyone is playing a specific role in your movie while the dramatic Leo Sun is casting its light in your 7th House of Others. Unfortunately, you may grow weary of someone’s affected behavior and can’t seem to ignore it any longer. You crave sincerity and truthfulness, but might feel as if you’re being shortchanged in a relationship. Nevertheless, stress levels will drop if you accept the fact that others are giving all they can today. Count your blessings now, not your complaints.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Running routine errands and helping others as you can may prevent you from chasing your fantasies. You wish you had more free time at your disposal, but you are already overcommitted in the chore department today. Don’t complain about your current obligations; just doggedly finish whatever you can. Thankfully, applying yourself diligently throughout the day will likely leave you with time for more pleasurable activities in the evening. Stephen Covey wrote, “The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.”
