A relatively easy flow of cosmic energy in the very early morning hours hits a few snags when the Sun is restrained by austere Saturn. Nevertheless, a Grand Water Trine enables us to find emotional stability as the radiant Sun, assertive Mars and healer Chiron harmonize with one another. But this positive outlook is tested by unavoidable circumstances when the Moon shifts from inspirational Sagittarius into practical Capricorn.

 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You may feel quite comfortable with your emotions today, but you’re hypersensitive to other people’s reactions. You often know exactly what you need to say and don’t really care about the consequences of speaking your mind. However ambitious your plans are for sharing your feelings with someone special, you might end up just keeping them to yourself now. But don’t be too self-critical if you choose to say nothing at all. Silence speaks when words can’t. 

 

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Although there might be an undertow of unspoken issues in a relationship today, you’re capable of keeping your balance without opening an emotional can of worms. Even if someone pressures you to talk about your feelings, let them know that you’re not ready to have the discussion yet. However, it’s important to explain that you’re not looking to bury the topic; you only want to delay the conversation for a while. The right timing can make all the difference in the world.

 

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Slowing down isn’t always the easiest task for you restless Twins, but a day of contemplation may be exactly what the doctor ordered. Although your thoughts could drift into the distant future, for the most part you are able to stay focused on the here and now. However, your spiritual quest will be more meaningful if you set everything else aside today and schedule a specific time for your meditation. Consciously postponing social commitments enables you to create the space you need to pursue serenity for your soul.

 

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Unfulfilled promises may temporarily interfere with your desire to relax today but, thankfully, you can rise to the occasion and do it all. The magic of water is that it seeks its own level before it comes to a standstill. Today’s Grand Trine activates the emotional water signs, inspiring you to find peace of mind by giving your feelings the freedom to flow. Nevertheless, like a river running to the sea, you might experience resistance along the way. Instead of trying to overcome an obstacle, just sink into a state of easy acceptance and let the cosmic forces work their magic.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

A seemingly perfect day stretches out before you and you’re eager to jump feet first into the scheduled activities. However, you may quickly change your mind, deciding that running around in pursuit of pleasure sounds more exhausting than it is worth today. Consider excusing yourself from your social commitments and taking the day to relax at home, alone or with your family. Creating sacred space now is the essential ingredient to finding real happiness. 

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Although you might have a very particular notion about how you want your day to unfold, you could run into resistance as you execute your plan. In fact, sticking to your original idea might leave you feeling discouraged and dejected. Fortunately, reality has a few happy surprises up its cosmic sleeve that actually improve upon your original expectations. However, you must relinquish the reins of control in order for the universe to play its hand. Trust is the key that opens the door to your success.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

You may feel like quitting today, but giving up before you even start is a terrible idea. Luckily, everything seems to slowly fall into place if you set reasonable goals and continue to strive toward achieving them. But assuming that everything will work out perfectly now is an open invitation for disappointment. Instead, forgive yourself for your flaws; accepting your humanness is the trick to turning an ordinary day into an extraordinary experience.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You are owning your power today and have no reason to apologize to anyone for your intensity. You are the beneficiary of a stabilizing Grand Water Trine; all you need to do is to shine the light of your awareness, regardless of what you see. Some people might not appreciate the brutal truth, but it’s not your place to co-dependently support their denial. To paraphrase President Harry S. Truman, if people can’t stand your heat, they should get out of your kitchen. 

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Living in two separate worlds is tricky today as your head pulls one way and your heart another. The Moon’s current visit to your adventurous sign inspires you to plan your future. However, an emotional Grand Water Trine lures you deep into the Sea of Imagination where the Land of Logic is left far behind. Rather than trying to choose one location, observe how you move from one realm to the other throughout the day. Dancing in multiple dimensions is easier than you think if you’re not tied to any specific outcome. 

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

You know you need to finish up old business today in preparation for the week ahead. However, you really don’t feel like doing much of anything now. You might wonder what has become of your ambition if you can’t motivate yourself. Thankfully, there’s no reason to panic because your drive will return later in the day when the Moon shifts into your industrious sign. In the meantime, kick back and enjoy a bit of time off. The best investment you can make is in your own wellbeing. 

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Your friends struggle to understand you today, especially if you decline their invitation to a social event. Unfortunately, they may take your action as a personal rejection, when that’s the furthest thing from your mind. You’re not purposely trying to avoid anyone now; it’s just that you can’t be sidetracked from your agenda. Happily, it doesn’t take much effort on your part to explain your intentions. Nevertheless, when you care about someone’s feelings, it’s worth going the extra mile.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You might feel pressured today to make decisions about upcoming events in your life. However, you’re not interested in finalizing plans in the real world while you’re happily distracted exploring your emotions. An energetic Grand Water Trine focuses on the healing power of your feelings. Maximize the potential of mind over matter by actively envisioning your ideal future while saving the execution for another day. The mystic poet Rumi wrote, “Let the water settle and you will see the Moon and Stars mirrored in your being.”
