Plenty of energy makes it easy to seize the initiative today, especially if you’re a Fire sign – AriesLeo or Sagittarius. The Moon trines Mars, providing lots of get-up-and-go for all signs. Be careful, though. This is very impulsive energy and those who don’t look before leaping could very well end up regretting it. Take action, yes, but maybe think it through first?

Looking ahead, Sunday’s Moon conjuncts Jupiter and Pluto, so it’s a good day for getting your own way with authority figures.

 Aries (March 20th – April 19th)

You’re off to a grand start today. So where are you headed? Oh, wait — you probably forgot to set a destination when you set out! But that’s okay. This is the kind of day when your inner fire is stoked, and all you want is to go, go, go. Give yourself plenty of time and space, because you may need to loop around a few times before you find your path.

 Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Today’s impulsive energy could be a bit much for your practical soul. People are getting a little bit wild, pushing boundaries in all kinds of ways that make you uncomfortable. Why can’t everyone just stick to what’s normal and sensible? Of course, a better question might be, What’s wrong with experimenting a little? It’s fun to delve into new areas of inquiry or try a new persona on for size.

 Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Today you’re full of vim and vigor, but you may not accomplish much overall. Though you have plenty of get-up-and-go, you’re a bit lacking in follow-through. You might start a project full of energy and intention, but then one or two minor aspects will catch your attention… Before you know it, it’s time to move on. When your focus is this scattered, time management is especially important!

 Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)

There’s an open-minded vibe in effect today that could make you a bit uncomfortable. Lots of people are getting caught up in idealistic visions of what could be, when you’re more concerned with what already exists. You’re just thinking about creating a stable, secure future, as usual. But there’s nothing wrong with a little pie-in-the-sky thinking. If you can’t envision your perfect life, how can you manifest it?

 Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)

You’re all fired up about something today. It’s a lot of fun to get excited about a new subject or concept. Don’t let obligations or others’ expectations limit you from exploring it! The current influence is the kind that urges you to teach yourself something new. Exploratory methods work best, because they exercise your mind and remind you that you’re a lifelong learner. You’re finding your path, and it’s truly inspiring.

 Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)

Rash, impulsive moves probably aren’t in your nature. You’re too reasonable to risk your sanity for a bit of needless spontaneity. And yet, if you were ever going to challenge everyone’s expectations, including your own, today would be the day. Perhaps a new person or idea captures your imagination. Maybe a question lurks at the back of your mind, tickling your consciousness. It’s asking, ‘What if?’ And only you can find the answer.

 Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)

Your mind is on fire today, in the best way possible. You’re filled with a sense of wonder, and you’re looking at the world as if with new eyes. Even old, stale ideas seem fresh, simply because your perspective is renewed. This is the kind of day when teachers become students again, and students are suddenly able to teach their insights to others. Enjoy the sense of integration in your broadest philosophies.

 Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

Today is not a day for staying home and entertaining serious thoughts. Quite the opposite! The current energy is perfect for getting out of the house and having some fun. Seek out companions who enjoy a little adventure, or perhaps some mental stimulation. On that note, it’s a great time to lighten things up with a poetry reading or an interesting debate with your friends — something unusual and intellectual that exercises your mind.

 Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)

Your optimism and confidence are on high today. You trust in your own perspective. At the very least, you trust in your ability to question the truth, which is hugely important. But watch yourself when you’re discussing big ideas with other people. It’s easy for your excitement to appear to others as a know-it-all attitude. Let them state their truths, too, even if they differ from yours. That’s real democracy.

 Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)

Today is a great day to bend the rules a little — or toss them out completely. If the very idea of that fills you with dread, that’s an indication that breaking the rules is something you should indulge in a little more often! The whole purpose of days like today is to shake you up a little, and jostle you out of your comfortable, ordered existence. Have a little fun with this.

 Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)

Your open-mindedness is one of your best qualities, and it’s highlighted today. You approach every project and idea in a spirit of inquiry. You don’t assume you know anything concrete about, well, anything. Everything is open to experimentation and exploration. What fun! And what a great way to view the world — especially on a day like this, when truth can shift like sands in the wind.

 Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)

There’s a wonderfully open, honest energy at work today. This is a good thing, except people may be a bit tactless in conversation. Considering how sensitive you are, this could affect you even more than other people! Of course, you tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, and that’s just what you should do now. Assume it’s just the current influence at work if someone says something insensitive.
