A difficult MoonUranus square today highlights a situation where change is desperately needed but is being blocked. The Air signs, GeminiLibra and Aquarius, will find this particularly tricky to deal with, because their logical minds just can’t understand the reason for the delay. The trick is to acknowledge that not everything is rational – sometimes, the lag is due to emotional instincts rather than practical problems. Looking ahead, Friday’s Pisces Moon conjuncts Neptune, highlighting imagination, spirituality and serenity.

 Aries (March 20th – April 19th)

You have the courage and energy you need to act on big ideas. And today, those big ideas come in droves, especially in group settings, where people can inspire each other to greater heights of creativity. Generate some ideas, and then serve as leader or instigator — the person who motivates everyone else to action. That’s one of your strengths, Aries. People see your vigorous spirit, and they get inspired.

 Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You may feel a bit sore today, and not just in the muscular sense. You’re holding on to your own opinions. Suddenly, it’s more important to represent your own ideas than to listen to others’. But if you close your mind to concepts that seem peculiar or unfamiliar, how will you learn anything new? Try suspending judgment and see if you grow more comfortable with challenging theories or approaches.

 Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

It’s a perfect day for gathering with friends for a group project, or throwing your efforts into a cause along with many other people. There’s power in numbers, and that’s rarely truer than it is today. Working alongside other like-minded people creates a breeding ground for innovation with built-in checks and balances. Together you can produce brilliant ideas, but make sure they stand up to the rigors of logic and practicality.

 Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)

Making an emotional connection with others could be difficult today, because many people are in the mood for space and solitude. Maybe it’s a good day to follow your own solitary pursuits. In-depth reading on a fascinating subject is especially interesting now. Just be sure to keep an open mind. Unusual ideas may challenge your sense of what’s normal or appropriate. And that’s actually a good thing.

 Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)

A strange vibe descends over your world today. Vague concerns could send you looking for something solid to cling to. Do what’s necessary to feel safe and grounded, but try not to be too stubborn in your views. Sometimes, when you’re feeling uncertain about life, you dig your heels in. But an adventurous, trusting approach would be better now. Summon your courage, Leo. Everything is going to be fine.

 Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)

An intellectual approach to life works well today, and that’s perfect for you. You’re good at analyzing data, so take a scientific approach to developing a project or solving a problem. If you get lost in big ideas, it’s okay. You’ll return to the mundane, physical realm soon enough. For now, feel free to spend time in your head. You might end up learning or discovering something you never knew before.

 Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)

Your bohemian side comes up today. There’s little you enjoy more than trading ideas and philosophies with friends. And if you can gather in a coffee shop while wearing black berets, so much the better! All jokes aside, getting inspired is easy now. You have flashes of insight at every turn, and this goes beyond mere cleverness. Follow your hunches. You could be on to something truly unusual and astonishing.

 Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

It’s a great day to dig deeply into any subject that interests you. The more scientific your approach, the better. Your mind is attuned to data trends and anomalies now, so you’re sure to spot anything interesting as you make your analysis. Just be sure you don’t let your own preconceptions get in the way of learning something new. Stubborn, contrary behavior can be an issue now, and can inhibit true learning.

 Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)

Your curiosity is boundless today. Focus your bright, brimming mind toward a particular problem or project. Especially if you work with other people, you’re sure to come up with some exciting stuff. And you won’t let petty ego concerns get in the way. You don’t care now about recognition for your brilliance. You just care about what happens when a group of great minds come together and start producing ideas.

 Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)

Ordinarily, you’re one for traditional approaches to projects and problem solving, and respecting the rules of the game. But today, your inner rebel comes out to play. Suddenly, new, untested ideas hold a lot of appeal. You can see the wisdom in radical thinking — as long as it’s well-founded, of course. And if anyone can ground truly innovative thinking in practicality, it’s you. It’s all about taking calculated risks, Capricorn.

 Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)

Your mind is working on a higher level today. Strange, interesting images and concepts occur to you suddenly, as if out of the ether. Keep a pad and pen handy, or better yet, a digital voice recorder. You’ll want some way to record your ideas, since they’re coming so fast and furious! Who knows? By the end of the day, you could come up with something truly revolutionary.

 Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)

You feel excited today, mentally turned on and tuned in. It’s as if you’ve tapped into a current of universal electricity that has switched on your mind like a light bulb. Your usual comfort needs don’t apply now as much as usual. You aren’t just open to new experiences, you’re actively courting them! Unusual concepts hold great appeal, as do unfamiliar people and places. Enjoy all the excitement, Pisces.
