Daily Horoscope Overview
Heated words and strong language are par for the course today, as a Retrograde Mercury squares up to Mars. Unfortunately, words spoken in anger will linger and may well come back to haunt many of us later in the day. The Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, are best equipped to think before they speak, not least because they know how it feels to be hurt by this kind of energy. Looking ahead, Chiron turns Retrograde on Saturday, beginning a period where our ancestral wounds area easier to see and heal.
Aries (March 20th – April 19th)
Be kind to yourself and others today. Kindness toward yourself might mean taking a nap when you’re feeling tired, instead of pushing yourself to keep going. It’s definitely a good day to take it easy. Kindness toward others might mean lending an ear to a friend, or nurturing your family with a home-cooked meal. This kind of activity is personally fulfilling, and will help you regain your energy.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
You just don’t have it in you to be aggressive today. A passive mood has crept in and replaced your usual, opinionated self. You want to get along with others in gentle harmony, so you’ll defer to your coworker’s approach to a project or your spouse’s choice of movie or restaurant. The truth is, you don’t mind what you do now, as long as you can enjoy being together.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Vague emotional impressions make you uneasy today. You can sense undercurrents of — something — and not being able to name it drives you crazy! But why not just go with it? You’re flexible by nature. So stop thinking and start feeling. What moves you? Turn on your favorite music and dance, or give yourself permission to daydream or take a midday nap. These activities are sure to make you feel more centered.
Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)
The world is in a highly emotional space today. For some, this is a vulnerable state to be in, but not you. You actually gain strength from being so in touch with your feelings, and with others’ emotions as well. It’s easy to read people now, because you’re connecting at the heart level instead of just with your mind. You’re in a great position to give someone kind, loving advice or strong support.
Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)
Though you’re used to being active, today is more a day for passive reflection. It’s a good time to get some extra sleep or to plan low-key, home-based activities. Naps are especially nice now! Let your mind wander as emotional impressions come and go. If you push yourself to do anything more strenuous, you’ll only wear yourself out. It’s time to take a day off from your usual high-energy approach to life.
Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)
You’re a problem-solver, and you rely heavily on reason to help you solve any day-to-day issues that come up. But today, a vague sense of confusion makes it difficult to focus on the problem itself, much less a logical solution. Perhaps logic isn’t the best approach. Tune in to your instincts instead. This may go against how you normally operate. But it will inform you more truly than mere judgment or reason.
Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)
You may not feel particularly strong today, and that’s why it’s especially important to protect yourself in relationships and negotiations. It’s all too easy now to give up too much. You may not even know what you want. Your own needs are tangled up with your awareness of the other person’s feelings. How can you honor both equally? That’s your challenge for today. Be forewarned that it may be difficult, but aim towards it anyway.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
You may be more emotional today than usual — and that’s saying something, since you’re a feeling person by nature. But this should be a grounded state, not a moody one. You’re in touch with your inner self, and that helps you relate to others in a kinder, more genuine way. Hug your loved ones close and extend a hand to someone in need. Selfless acts of kindness expand your soul.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)
Your innate idealism could go overboard today. You’re operating on dreams and fantasies, and you believe in them wholeheartedly. And blind faith can be a powerful force. But if a friend or coworker advises you against a certain path or decision, take their word for it. They probably have a more realistic sense of things than you do at the moment. It’s best to temper your idealism with common sense.
Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)
Your head and heart are working beautifully in tandem today. You’re as grounded and practical as ever, but you’re also in touch with your softer, compassionate side. This balance creates a centered feeling. What a great foundation for performing good deeds and other acts of service! It’s good to help others now. Being unselfish increases your sense of self-respect. And there are so many people who could use your assistance.
Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)
Don’t fault yourself if you want to spend the day relaxing or daydreaming. It’s hard right now to concentrate on mundane tasks. But if you’re working on a project that involves creativity, it could go very well. You’re in a highly imaginative frame of mind. Otherwise, allow your mind to wander. It’s a good day for napping, reading or listening to music. All of these will feed your creative muse.
Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)
Let your mind wander today, and pay attention to the places that it visits. Your imagination is an important tool in mapping out the next several weeks of your life. And today brings you the perfect opportunity to make some plans. This is the start of a new personal cycle for you, so seek a deep level of concentration. In that inwardly focused state, you’ll uncover your own dreams. Then, you can pursue them.
