The Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn today is about taking responsibilities seriously – and about what happens if you don’t. For the Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, this is a bit of a wake-up call. Time to stop rushing onto the next issue; linger and do the job properly the first time. For all of us, this Eclipse highlights the things we know we ought to be doing – and if we’re not doing them, trouble lies ahead.
Aries (March 20th – April 19th)
Skeptics will speak out whether or not anyone wants to hear their harsh version of the truth. Challengers are ratcheting up the pressure because they think it’ll give them an advantage. So what role are you playing? Maybe you want to look good in the eyes of the rich and powerful. Maybe you just want to get along and be left alone. Wherever you are in the spectrum of light conversation or dark predictions, this will be an emotionally charged day. Please keep the debate civil.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
You’ve always been grounded, but now you’re even more balanced than usual. Your goals and efforts are in line with your values, and that’s a great state of being. You can put real work into something that means a lot to you, and enjoy the success you achieve. Be prepared to work hard, because this charmed influence doesn’t last long. At least you can be assured it’s worth all the work you’ll put in. Time to map out your painstaking route to the top.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Ugh! The current energy is heavy and constricting, and you’re feeling grouchy in response. Your bad mood is understandable — responsibilities are weighing on you, and you just want to be free of it all. But why do you resent friendly strangers? They’re just trying to get along. Oh, well. Go ahead and deflect all their schemes and plans today. Maybe that will help you get used to them, so you can calm down and open up. Besides, in a few days, you’ll feel much better.
Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)
Listen to your gut — it’s aiming you in the right direction. You’re working even more efficiently than usual, which gives you structure. Is there anything you can’t get done? Even if you’re a rock star at work and home alike, don’t get too cocky. Cancer, listen closely when your coworkers or family try to tell you what they think. Your intuition is naturally strong, but you’re currently more attuned to your own goals. But if you work hard and stay humble, an actual purpose will unfold. And you’ll appreciate knowing what it is.
Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)
Self-importance could isolate you today. You’re in a bit of a mood, and your normal humor seems to have gone into hiding. You’re taking everything a little too seriously, including yourself — and someone might say something that really gets under your skin. But before you react self-righteously, stop and consider whether you really want to sacrifice a friendship. Do you really require that much privacy and respect? Cool down for a couple of days and see if things snap back into proportion again.
Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)
It’s easy to be grounded today. You’re even more focused than usual, you know what needs to be done, and you’ve got some good ideas. You can be as tough or as tender as each situation demands, because in each case, you’re practical enough to figure out the stakes. People are sure to come to love and respect you, if they don’t already. Virgo, everyone is taking note of your elegant ability to rise to meet each challenge.
Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)
You’ve accumulated too much. How’s that working for you? It’s a fair question, because you’ll probably be deluged with material things today. Yes, you may already be seeing the first wave of found objects, charitable donations, and gifts from people who just want to do something nice for you. Do you deserve all this? More to the point, do you need it? At least take a few moments to write thank you notes. You might also ask if you can return the favor. That could be one way of dumping some of your surplus.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Change your shape. Repurpose yourself for a new mission. You’re done with being a leaf-crawler, and are ready to start flying. So sprout those wings and explode from your cocoon. How spectacular is that? A little celebration is okay, but you should be tuning into some very real possibilities that are already crying out for your attention. Your smart enough to know how to profit from all this. Maybe you’ll be the first person to exploit what lies on the other side of transformation. Take whatever the law allows.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)
Being detail-oriented probably doesn’t come naturally to you, Sagittarius — you’re much more of a big-picture person. But today you may have to morph into a perfectionist at the office or at home. Whatever’s on your plate, your close attention is needed, along with your ability to brainstorm new approaches to existing problems. Don’t waste time trying to hide from your responsibilities — simply narrow your focus and get to work. It’ll make life much easier for everyone involved.
Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)
You draw them in like a powerful magnet. Your status shoots through the ceiling. Your social calendar is suddenly overflowing. This could be big fun if you can roll with it, or it could be embarrassing if you’re totally unprepared. Well, that’s the nature of unplanned parties, right? See what happens if you keep a dignified distance today. While you might turn off certain people who can’t see below the surface, you’ll show your ultimate control over the situation. Putting in a little effort at mastering the game is sure to demonstrate what a serious player you are.
Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)
Success-oriented types might change friends and outfits frequently, but while you’re certainly ambitious, you don’t want to be that flighty. How much do you value your relationships? The answer is probably more than you realize, because despite your lifelong need for independence, you’re deeply committed to the people you care about. Take a few days to savor your connections with friends, family, and even coworkers and clients — the people in your life who mean the most to you. Be grateful you’re not one to throw away a meaningful bond just to get ahead.
Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)
Well, you’re quite the model citizen all of a sudden. Crude people envy your class and polish. Accept their blunt praise with a smile instead of laughing at how they express it. Meanwhile, reasonable types like your roundabout logic, although it doesn’t seem that amazing to you. Hey, it’s just how your mind works. So you’re kind of a celebrity just for being who you are. Now what? Get past the urge to give demos for tourists who want to peek under the hood. Make this start working for you at a higher level today.
