3 January 2015, Nirapad News :
New ideas pop in our brains like fireworks today as the Sun squares electric Uranus. But sudden shifts of perspective can send us tumbling down a rabbit hole and into a parallel universe. The Sun joins transformational Pluto, confirming the evolutionary cosmic energies now at work. Although friendly Venus enters intellectual Aquarius to cool our emotions, the Moon shifts into nurturing Cancer at 8:07 pm EST, drawing us closer to those we love.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You feel as if you’re a salmon swimming upstream in a storm today as the currents of circumstance hinder your progress. Although you’re quick to blame others for your predicament, the real struggle originates within you. You might act like an ostrich and bury your head in the sand, pretending that you don’t see what’s happening. But as you know, denial won’t solve anything — nor will you be able to maintain this posture for long. Instead, be ruthless as you drag your fears out into the light of day. Self-awareness is the key to positive change.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
Your thoughts may seem out of your control as they take you for an intense trip through your fears today. Thankfully, you can come out the other side with a complete change of heart. Although this metaphysical journey isn’t light and breezy since it doesn’t offer any guarantee of success, it will be exciting, nonetheless. There’s no reason to succumb to negativity or doubt. Take time to assess your strengths and weaknesses so you can prepare for the future with an open mind and a sustainable plan.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
The most beautiful emotional treasures are hidden deep under the apparent calm today. Typically, your curiosity motivates you to quickly move on to what’s next, but now an irrepressible compulsion to understand your feelings inspires you to explore beneath the surface. However, you may become so obsessed with the potential rewards that you reach too far. Lighten up; the current situation will continue to evolve at a healthy pace once you realize you don’t have to push so hard.
Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You are giving birth to a whole new way of relating to friends and family now, but this emotional process comes with its own share of stress. In order to reinvent yourself you may need to confront someone’s control issues, especially if your recent growth spurt appears to threaten the status quo. However, you might be the one who is stuck — and you don’t appreciate anyone meddling in your affairs. There’s no need to hold onto the past now; it’s slipping away from you whether you like it or not. The only constant you can count on is change.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You’re ready to blast ahead with your plans today, even if you are receiving mixed signals from everyone else involved. Unfortunately, pushing your agenda won’t likely work out in your favor now. You could inadvertently rekindle an unnecessary emotional conflict while blindly speeding toward your goals. Nevertheless, don’t be afraid of proceeding on your own if your friends don’t share your current passion. Express your fierce independence by being willing to stand out in a crowd.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You’re overly concerned with making the disparate pieces fit perfectly now, leading you to plan more than is necessary. Unfortunately, getting lost in the minutiae spoils the fun by taking the spontaneity out of the day. Avoid getting swept up in an unnecessary power struggle, even if you’re positive that your solution is the best one. Ease the pressure on current circumstances by consciously choosing acceptance over fear. Stepping away from a direct confrontation creates enough space for the spark of creativity to grow into the fire of self-expression.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Someone’s unexpressed feelings might rock your boat today, even if you desperately try to hold steady. Unfortunately, the hidden price of keeping the peace is higher than you realize since jealousy can generate anger and resentment. The potentially negative energy is tricky to control because sharing may be as problematic as keeping quiet. It’s healthy to talk about your fears, but don’t alienate anyone with unnecessary emotional intensity. Negotiate a workable compromise by stating your case as objectively as possible and then encouraging others to do the same.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
There’s so much on your plate that you may be secretly tempted to run and hide. Nevertheless, the adrenaline has kicked in and you’re committed to do whatever it takes to cross some tasks off your list. Unfortunately, you might disagree with someone who has a radically different idea of how you should spend your time. Today’s Sun-Pluto conjunction can turn every interaction into a major drama. Processing your emotions before you respond allows you to maintain control of the flow of events. You are a force to be reckoned with now so channel your intensity into your work.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You are driven to succeed today, but it’s helpful to acknowledge that honoring your core values is more important than achieving material satisfaction. You might reconsider a recent decision and want to modify your behavior, but this sudden turn can be complicated if you’re already in motion. You didn’t get to this point overnight, and you won’t be able to change direction in a moment’s notice, either. Fortunately, there’s no need to panic, so take your time and carefully map out your strategy. You still need a song in mind if you want to march to your own drummer.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Even the most minor issues can quickly blow out of proportion as tempers flare and passions erupt. Today’s Sun-Pluto hookup occurs in your sign, making you more susceptible to the emotional intensity in the air. You might be obsessing about determining your plans for the future and you’re not willing to take no for an answer. Unfortunately, you could inadvertently invite resistance if you come on too strong. A gentle and persistent approach is more productive than overpowering anyone else with your powerful resolve. The art of persuasion takes a light touch.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re living in a dreamworld if you think you can stay on schedule today. Others can’t help but notice the sparkle in your eyes and the spring in your step now that captivating Venus is in your sign. However, your enthusiasm might be dampened if unexpected events require you to abandon your plans. Don’t struggle to keep your agenda intact; just let it fall apart so you can put the pieces back together in a more creative manner. The process of starting something anew must begin with the ending of the previous cycle.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your vivid visions of the future may run you ragged now, bringing thrills one minute and concerns the next. However, you might realize that your plans are not unfolding as expected today. Rather than accepting defeat, try to see this as a rare opportunity to reinvent yourself in harmony with your hopes and dreams. Let go of past goals that no longer hold any meaning and forget about conforming to other people’s expectations. Set new priorities for your life and step boldly into the year ahead. Be true to yourself and don’t look back.
