We’re like a deer in the headlights, caught in our own erratic mental crossfire today. We mistakenly think we can keep things under control while the Moon is still hanging out in dreamy Pisces, but her shift into aggressive Aries urges us to take matters into our own hands. Meanwhile, logic succumbs to spontaneous innovation when rational Mercury aligns with reckless Mars and radical Uranus. Taking risks invites the unexpected.
Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
You’re aware from a rational standpoint that you should probably stick to the tried-and-true when it comes to your finances, but you keep convincing yourself that this next brilliant scheme might be the one to outdo them all. Unfortunately, taking chances isn’t likely to evoke the instantaneous magic you expect. However, making real headway is possible once the Moon moves from delusional Pisces to your action-orientated sign. Funnel this energetic boost into nailing down what you know must be done rather than letting it fuel your impulsiveness. Know your limitations and then defy them.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
You may find yourself further from practicality than you bargained for in your effort to think outside the box. Grounding your ideas is a challenge as mental Mercury is coerced by unruly Uranus and go-getter Mars. You might try to lean on your friends for objectivity, but even they seem to have their heads in the clouds today. Happily, you get a break later when the ephemeral Moon moves into your 12th House of Rest. Muhammad Ali said, “The man who has no imagination has no wings.”
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
It’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s fiction today as wild rumors circulate around the water cooler. You might be completely convinced that your friends and coworkers are talking about you behind your back, but it’s important to consider that you could just be worried for no reason. You may finally feel brave enough to step up and face the hearsay directly after the Moon marches into confident Aries and your 11th House of Social Circles. As George Bernard Shaw wrote, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
You’re wondering if you heard someone right as words seem to dissolve and change immediately after they’re spoken. The spiritual Pisces Moon encourages you to have faith, but you’re concerned that none of your work tasks will get done if you expect the Universe to do them for you. Fortunately, the Moon shifts into enterprising Aries, imbuing you with the guts to take care of business yourself. However, don’t be overzealous right out of the gate or overcompensation might land you in a bigger mess than before. Speak softly and carry a big stick.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Irrational thoughts run wild over your mental landscape, leaving you a bit breathless with all the possibilities. Separating the wheat from the chaff isn’t as simple as it seems when the fuzzy Pisces Moon is involved, filling your mind with idealistic notions and the promise of escape from the mundane. Later it becomes clear that you’ll have to take the bull by the horns to make the changes you’re dreaming of, but surprises are still in store once you make your move. Embrace the unknown.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
You’re tempted to say exactly what’s on your mind today, even though you know it might sound far-fetched to your audience. Blurred boundaries in the heart seep through to the mind, and you may be moved to profess love and affection when you would typically hold your tongue. Meanwhile, brazen Mars and unpredictable Uranus influence your key planet Mercury, revving your courage up and emboldening you to put a risky plan into action. Fortune favors the bold.
Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)
You’re fascinated by someone’s ambitious goals, but you can’t seem to summon the energy to fully commit to getting on board. The sensitive Pisces Moon fumbles through your 6th House of Wellbeing, attracting peculiar symptoms and perhaps even a slight case of hypochondria today. Fortunately, confusing ailments disperse into thin air after Luna switches into hot-to-trot Aries, motivating you to get back on the horse. Determination determines your destination.
Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)
Fear of being misunderstood creates inner conflict between blurting out your feelings and letting things stew inside. You may decide to use art or music to express your volatile emotions rather than vocalizing them, especially since your moods are changing rapidly. However, when the reflective Moon moves from disorienting Pisces to assertive Aries, you might choose to shift gears and let your actions do the talking. John Burroughs wrote, “The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention”
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
You’re questioning the things you normally take for granted today and wondering how much they really matter. You’re a heartbeat away from purging your closet of any items you think are tying you down. However, the sentimental Pisces Moon begs you to remember that some things have special value because of their place in your heart. At some point, you might decide that the internal tug-of-war is too complicated, and set out on a completely different path altogether. Sometimes a healthy dose of recreation can clear the mind like nothing else.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Employing even your highest quality fog lights won’t increase visibility as much as you wish, forcing you to bide your time until the haze lifts. Once the mental mists blow past, your challenge is to keep your plan realistic when reactionary Uranus and warrior Mars rally in your 4th House of Foundations, urging you to forge a new set of rules from the ground up. General George S.Patton said, “Better to fight for something than to live for nothing.”
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Your thoughts are going off like a line of firecrackers today causing you to switch direction each time a new piece of information enters the picture. You’re convinced that secrets hiding in plain sight could be the key to unlocking incredible discoveries, but reckless Uranus is pranking trickster Mercury in your 12th House of Mystery, blowing everyday occurrences out of proportion. Keeping a cool head is the difference between creating an innovative solution and a conspiracy theory.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
The rallying cry for an idealistic social cause could be so stirring that you’re willing to write a check or volunteer your time to whoever asks as long as it moves the operation forward. Be sure that it makes sense before pledging your resources, because you’re susceptible to swindling prior to the Moon’s shift into independent Aries. It’s prudent to hold off on making any major decisions until you’re certain you know what you’re signing up for. Better safe than sorry.
