Today’s Sun–Moon trine makes for an easy-going day, with good humor and plenty of social niceties. This aspect also contributes a sense of purpose to the day, which many of us will be able to use to accomplish satisfying tasks. For Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, getting outdoors is important, and sports will bring all kinds of benefits. Staying active is important for everyone. Looking ahead, August begins with a Mercury–Pluto opposition, so think carefully about how you present your case or argue your point.
Aries (March 20th – April 19th)
You’re all fired up about something today. You’re off to a great start on it, purely because you’ve got the initiative needed to get things rolling. You should also have no trouble inspiring other people to get on board. The only problem might be that follow-through isn’t exactly part of your repertoire, at the moment or in general. Get as much done as you can while you’re still excited about it!
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Instead of sticking to your usual routine today, break out of the box a little. What’s wrong with being spontaneous? Nothing — it just makes you nervous, that’s all. But right now, feeling out of your element is a good sign. It means you’re adopting an adventurous attitude, which is definitely favored. Anything you can do now to create a sense of freshness in your life is a good thing.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
You may find yourself waxing philosophical today, in conversation or in your own private musings. Looking at life from a broader view is the perfect use of the current cosmic influence — as long as you don’t start thinking you have all the answers. Your mind is sharper than many, and you certainly have the smarts needed to understand life’s larger questions. Still, the mark of true intelligence is an open mind.
Cancer (June 21st – July 21st)
Values and principles are highlighted today. One of your deepest beliefs may be challenged by someone in conversation, or perhaps by something you see with your own eyes. This could be a tough experience, but it’s not one you should try to avoid. How can you be secure in your beliefs if they’re never tested? You could learn something new, or your views could be reaffirmed. Either process is valuable.
Leo (July 22nd – August 21st)
Today you’re interested in everyone you encounter. You want to hear their ideas, even if they differ from your own. Hey, maybe you can teach each other a thing or two! It’s a great day to consciously embrace new experiences. If you go out to eat, choose ethnic food you haven’t tried before. If you’re at a party, seek out unfamiliar faces and strike up a conversation. Broaden your horizons, Leo.
Virgo (August 22nd – September 21st)
Today, known quantities are for amateurs. It’s time to break out and create your own destiny! Okay, if those words make you feel more nervous than inspired, it doesn’t mean you’re an amateur. It just means you’d rather know what’s around the next bend. But even if you prefer a plan, you can find ways to honor the current cosmic energy. Switch up your routine. Have some impromptu fun!
Libra (September 22nd – October 22nd)
You’re extra open-minded today. In fact, you might even purposely seek out people who are different from you, or want to try cuisine, art or other experiences that are outside the realm of the familiar. Each of these holds mind-broadening potential. You have a thirst for new knowledge, so anything that teaches you something new or leaves you with a fresh perspective on the world is a good thing.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Venture beyond known quantities today. Instead of lunching with the same group of coworkers as usual, for example, find a new table and talk to someone you don’t already know. You can apply this principle to any activity or situation. The point is to indulge the adventurous spirit that’s currently at work within you and everyone around you. Find a way to remind yourself that life is filled with secrets to be discovered.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 20th)
Today, your main goal should be outward bound. Remember, there’s more than one way to achieve this. If an actual trip out of town isn’t possible right now, be creative! You could make your own adventure-scape in your back yard, or watch a documentary about deep-sea diving. You could even get online and start gathering facts about a future trip you might take. Knowledge is power!
Capricorn (December 21st – January 18th)
Today, a flexible mind is your greatest asset. Instead of going into a situation with a preconceived notion of what it’s going to be all about, clear your mind. The best way to get a broad view of things is with a perspective that’s as all-inclusive as possible. That means being tolerant of eccentric personalities, ideas and theories. See if there might be a method to the madness.
Aquarius (January 19th – February 17th)
You’re in the perfect mindset today to make an exciting discovery. If you have a hobby or job that’s based on inquiry, it’s especially satisfying to indulge in that process of asking yourself, ‘What if?’ Besides, it’s not as if you’re taking random shots in the dark. You have a sharp mind, and your ideas are based on observation — plus that extra, indefinable something you bring to the equation.
Pisces (February 18th – March 19th)
You’re extra flexible today. In fact, there’s little that could shock you, because you’re so open and trusting! But it’s smart to be a little bit skeptical. In a conversation, if someone’s story seems too good to be true, take it with a grain of salt. The same goes for get-rich-quick schemes or any other miraculous claim. Maintain a healthy sense of doubt until something is proven to be solid.
