There’s a lovely artistic vibe around today, courtesy of the Moon–Neptune sextile. Just enough imagination to create something special, but not so much that it all becomes weird. Unless, of course, you’re aiming for weird – I’m looking at you, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces – in which case you’ll get your wish. It’s a terrific day for creating, or enjoying the arts. Looking ahead, there’s a tinge of excitement in the air on Sunday, as Mars sextiles Uranus.
Aries (March 20th – April 19th)
You’re used to impulsive, exhaustive approaches to projects and problems. If you try to exert that kind of energy today, you’ll feel held back. Your best bet is to work with this influence instead of against it. Be a cautious warrior instead of an all-out berserker. Make a plan, even though you’d rather act than think. Don’t forget the help your friends and allies can give you if you ask for it. Remember, there’s nothing fainthearted about talking things out and gathering good ideas.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Hardworking people like you can afford to be generous, so don’t skimp on the freebies or hesitate to give someone a leg up. Anything you do today will stick for at least a month, if not longer. Even if others ignore your kindness or take it for granted, don’t give up. Move on right away. You’ve earned the right to sit back and admire your handiwork. You’re doing OK, so give yourself a pat on the back. Anyone who understands genuine pride will have to forgive you for being so self-satisfied.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Normally you enjoy a bit of excitement. It adds spice to your life. Today, things feel too chaotic. Passive types easily will feel lost in the hustle and bustle. This includes you. Maybe it’s time to step back from the crowd. Quiet and solitude aren’t usually your thing, but for now, they feel right. This is a great time to go your own way, if you can find it. If you can grab a close friend on your way out, so much the better. That way, you can self-indulge together and enjoy life’s slower rhythms.
Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)
Trust the forces of progress and the good intentions of your neighbors. Learn to be comfortable with change even if your current specialty is living in the past. Tasteful choices will always make you popular, but accurate timing will play an even bigger role today. Be where you say you’ll be, bring a little something extra, and know when to throw it down for maximum effect. In other words, recognize your own powers and don’t be afraid to use them every chance you get. If you want life to keep on being excellent, you owe this much to yourself.
Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)
Weighty issues drag at you. Maybe you hooked up with something you didn’t really want, or maybe this is a choice you made. Whatever happened, that was then and this is now. It’s already too late to fight the current, so don’t even bother. Instead of struggling, take a deep breath, submerge for a day, and take care of business down there. You’ll be able to breathe in this metaphor — it’s not as if you’re in real water. Once you’re fully caught up in the flow, it won’t seem so bad.
Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)
Sometimes you wonder if you have what it takes. Well, guess what? You’re rich in ways beyond money, although right now a pocketful of cash would certainly be the icing on the cake. The bottom line is that you’re feeling relaxed and looking excellent. It’ll be easy to deliver a faultless performance today. But don’t stop there. Your firm grip on the odds and careful management of resources should help you keep it going as long as you can. Big bucks might not be as far away as you think.
Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)
Unfortunately, time is not on your side today. You ran out of that luxury a few days ago, and now you have to readjust your position. Of course, that’s easier said than done. You’re feeling uneasy. Money, values and relationship issues loom large in your consciousness. Try not to make too much of things. Keep molehills small and manageable instead of turning them into mountains. The first day of your new approach might be awkward, but don’t worry — you’ll soon get used to it.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Somehow, you seem to be attracting curious and helpless people today. They’re following you like lost kittens. What — do you have a sign on your back that says ‘I Can Fix Anything’? Your competence shines through. Whatever you do, don’t take unfair advantage of anyone. If someone comes to you for assistance, it’s because they really need it. And here’s a news flash: You need them, too. Think of this as a mutual partnership, and give it your fair and balanced attention.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)
Okay, so things have slowed down and there’s a delay in your plans. Why act like a mopey teenager about it? Waiting can feel like forever, but really, it’s only going to be one day before things start to push through again. In the meantime, there’s no need to sulk. If you think creatively, you can do something useful with your downtime, such as starting a brand-new project or brainstorming new avenues for the current one. If you keep your chin up and your mind open, you’ll find that this brief period passes in a flash.
Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)
You’d enjoy a little recognition for your hard work and natural smarts, and today is your chance to serve as an example for everyone around you. You’re working hard, taking all the right steps toward your goals and feeling great about your output. You’re firm but kind with coworkers, family and friends alike. There’s no need to use other people as stepping stones; now you’re helping them climb their own ladders of success. Doesn’t it feel great to be such a positive influence in the lives of the people around you? Make it count.
Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)
Rough handling might suggest that you’re aloof and uncaring, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, you care enough to make this happen. You’re shaking things up because you finally got tired of the old arrangement. Of course, this means you should be ready to take your lumps. Be brave, OK? Engage with the moment and feel what there is to feel. It might not be fun at first, but there’s a lesson in that, too. Just one day of this sharp clarity will help you find your comfort zone.
Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)
You’re doing OK with your lofty ideals and your valiant actions, or at least you probably won’t encounter any major problems today. But just in case chivalry fails you, just in case that fierce dragon you’re about to slay turns into a plain old windmill and throws you from the saddle, friends will be standing by to catch you. Or, they’ll be there if you called them now. It’s not that you need an audience. You’re just covering all bases in case you have to come back to earth rather suddenly.
