Busy astrological day, this one! Mercury conjuncts Venus but squares Neptune, suggesting that it’s all too easy to get taken in by a romance that isn’t all it seems. On a brighter note, the Sun trines Saturn, providing plenty of opportunities for those who are willing to work hard; and a terrific Gemini New Moon makes this the ideal time for launching any kind of creative business venture. Lots to think about for everyone, but it’s an especially interesting day for Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.
Aries (March 20th – April 19th)
They can’t wait to listen to your story, buy whatever you’re selling or get their hands on you. How long have you been waiting for this? How much do you want to see them beg? Yes, you’re holding the world in the palm of your hand, but try to be cool even when you’re clearly just so hot. Adapt your wild energy to whatever the moment demands so that you’re always one step ahead of ready. You’ll score big points today, because you’ll be the guest of honor at every celebration. Don’t you just love being loved?
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
You’re in a cheerful mood, aren’t you? That’s why you keep reaching out to anyone who will listen. You’re trying to recruit and motivate several different people. Most of them already are on your side, working on the same thing you are. This could be termed ‘wasted effort.’ You’d be far better off taking care of your own responsibilities. Remember that the people around you already share your values. Maybe that will free you up to take care of more important business.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
You’re airy and bubbly, but don’t let anyone think you’re all fizz and no fire. Something deeper is at work here, and it’s getting harder to ignore. Tune into this today, and you may discover that, for the first time in ages, you’re sure of yourself. You know who you are and what your purpose is. Don’t waste the moment. Put this power into your words and actions. Change your behavior if you really need to convince others that you’re serious. And you’ll get extra points if you can keep a smile on your face for a whole month.
Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)
You’re tuned in. You’re feeling on top of your game. It’s obvious from the look on your face and the strut in your stride. Today you’ll offer everyone witty advice and conservative financial tips. Be careful about taking your own recommendations. Most likely, you’re accurate in your figuring. Still, take a wait and see attitude instead of jumping into what looks like a lucrative or foolproof prospect. There’s no harm in giving people ideas. Wait a few days before acting upon them yourself.
Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)
Look at all these fish in the sea. Look at all the beautiful people hanging out in this garden of earthly delights. Maybe you’re feeling amorous and available, but you have standards. You have a keen eye for the ideal partner, and it might take a sharp poke to keep you looking. Put your best side on display, since Mr. or Ms. Right could be looking for you. Meanwhile, if you’re not in the market for love, use today to get a better job, hustle up some new clients or find the best deal in town.
Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)
Whether it’s the coffee or the nonstop excitement, you’re probably feeling too wired for your own good right now. And this isn’t that robust, can-do feeling of concentrated energy. If anything, you feel more delicate than energetic. Mistakes could happen, whether you act or fail to act. Calm yourself today instead of letting your worries wind you up even tighter. All challenges can wait awhile. And if some big opportunity passes you by, oh well. Consider what might have happened if you’d grabbed it before you were ready. Then consider yourself lucky.
Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)
Leave it to you to make a shrewd perspective look like sweet, friendly charm. Your eye is sharp and your mind keen today, and even the smallest detail won’t escape your notice. Could this be a hidden talent revealing itself? Of course, you’ve always been great at analyzing people and situations. It’s the folks around you who may be surprised to find you’re not as compliant as you seem. The good news is, they’re delighted to find your judgment so sharp. You’ll impress them even more if you really let these inner talents shine.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Have you been a bit of a hermit lately? That’s not a bad thing, you know. Isolation feels okay for short periods of time, especially if you’re savoring old memories and other mementos of the past. But other people want you to engage emotionally in the present. They’re invested in you, you know. They love you, and they’re counting on you. Make sure you check in today. Don’t leave anyone hanging. Even if someone has invited you to join in, you can still reenter the world on your own terms.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)
All your relationships, major and minor, are worth something in the here and now, and you’re aware of that fact. Gender and background don’t matter today. With a little focused effort, you can move past what you expect of people based on their appearances, and get to know the person inside. This is your chance to see through their cleverly constructed masks as well as your own notions of others’ needs and feelings. Truth is waiting for you to discover it, as soon as you open your heart and your mind.
Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)
People are always saying you work too hard and view life too seriously, which makes the current irony that much more annoying — that your attempt at a practical joke went so wrong. You were just having a little fun, but the current energy is tricky. Maybe you didn’t come across as you intended. Whatever happened, you ended up getting stung, and now you’re feeling a little waspish. It never crossed your mind that this thing would backfire. Oh, well, at least this mood only lasts a day. Lay low if you can, and wear a good-natured smile.
Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)
Jumping straight into the action is not your preferred M.O. at the moment. You’re too thoughtful for that. And that’s most definitely a good thing. You have a real way with words now, so you can talk people into, well, just about anything. Whatever your agenda might be, your personal power is fine-tuned and on high. You’re able to make your case with grace and humor, which other people will appreciate. You’re sure to gain a few allies today. Once you’ve roped them all in, you can get started.
Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)
If you’re not sure where to turn, that’s because uncertainty is everywhere. Being two-faced now would just make it worse, even though it’s natural to divide your loyalties, or put them on hold while you’re still checking out the options. People might already be badgering you to join up, sign up, or invest in whatever they claim is best for you. But don’t cave yet, OK? Stand up to the pressure today. Stay on message even if it means an emotional disconnect. In some cases it’s better not to get involved, anyway.
