18 January 2015, Nirapad News :
Although we’ve had more than our fair share of ups and downs, the slower pace today may make us anxious rather than soothing our souls. The Moon’s shift into stable Capricorn at 7:04 am EST is a welcome relief because it helps us find our way back to the center from the recently experienced extremes. However, because it’s challenging to trust our emotional vagaries; we might choose to distract ourselves with extra chores so we can leave the drama behind.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You might think you need to hold back your feelings about your future plans so that you don’t upset a tenuous situation. But it’s time to realize that you aren’t the center of everyone’s attention now, even if you believe otherwise. However, you can’t restrain your desires forever, so it’s a smart idea to initiate a process of gradual self-expression. Start slowly to lessen the shock value. Give others time to absorb your words and reflect on them before you take your revelation to the next level.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
Although you’re typically quite practical, you might temporarily set common sense aside to undertake something that is a bit risky. Although your actions are still goal-oriented, you’re less concerned about tangible accomplishments now and more focused on your dreams of success. Even if you have mixed feelings about what you are doing today, rest assured that it’s okay to cut loose from your obligations for a while. You can return to your unfinished business with renewed vigor after the New Moon on Tuesday.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
You’re captivated by your dreams of globetrotting these days, but your yearnings for adventure won’t be satisfied by a casual visit to a friend in a nearby city. Seriously consider going the distance now, like taking a trip to a place on your bucket list. Fly in your imagination to another galaxy or cruise in your time machine back to the Renaissance. Paradoxically, it doesn’t matter whether or not you actually pack your bags and go as long as you allow yourself the luxury of traveling there in your mind.
Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You may be under growing pressure from someone close to you as Tuesday’s New Moon draws near. The emotional stress is an indicator that something needs to change and a confrontation could be unavoidable. There are sensitive issues about intimacy that must be addressed. Whether you like it or not, withdrawing from an intense connection might not be your most intelligent course of action, especially if you’re reacting on gut fear. Instead, find the courage to choose love as your guiding light and slowly establish healthier ways of relating to others.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
It feels like boredom is settling in and you are craving a change of scenery. But even if you are right at the edge of a big shift, you can’t make things progress any faster than reality will allow. It’s as if your speed limit is being set by external events, rather than by your own intent. Frustration can be a result of impatience, for the real transformation will take more time than you prefer. Keep the faith, there will be enough clues in the days ahead to foreshadow the next act of the play.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Although you might switch your attention to more playful activities, immediate pleasure may not be forthcoming. Even a simple romantic adventure could run into delays while you manage the logistics. Reality seems to get in the way of your enjoyment just enough to keep you aware of what you’re missing. Don’t give up; satisfaction is closer than you think. You can climb the tallest mountain with a good map, a solid plan and your unwavering determination.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Sticking close to home may be all you need to feel emotionally secure today. However, you could still grow restless, motivating you to head out in search of new and different avenues for expressing your creativity. Don’t worry about how your friends and family might react; the outcome is likely to pleasantly surprise you. Keep in mind that any negativity you encounter probably has its roots in envy. Take a chance and walk on the wild side, no matter what anyone else thinks.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Oddly enough, you’re chattier than usual, but you glean more meaning from life now if you look beneath the funny stories and clever repartee. Unfortunately, you could run into a wall when someone isn’t amused by your penetrating questions. Don’t try to charm your way through an awkward interaction. Instead, take the initiative and talk about the issues as you discover them. Your willingness to address a tough subject in a fair-minded manner will win the admiration of those who previously resisted your efforts.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Retail therapy is not usually an advisable path to happiness; however, there are times when spending money does feel good. Your current justification for making a purchase could be fabricated, especially if you want to take advantage of a bargain. It’s worth taking some time to reconsider your actions. There’s nothing wrong with buying a beautiful object; it’s even better if the price is right. However, you don’t need to stretch the truth to come up with false reasons for your self-indulgence. This is not about what anyone else likes; it’s about acquiring something that touches your heart.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You sense that your time to act is running out — and, actually it is. It’s natural to experience a little anxiety and moodiness now that the sensitive Moon is back in your sign. Although other people don’t necessarily comprehend your current angst, unfinished business can stand between you and your goals. Unless it’s truly urgent, try not to start a new project until after Tuesday’s New Moon. Reexamine recent events and tie up loose ends while you still have the chance.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Old feelings run their course tonight and then they mellow out before returning to the cosmic recycling bin. Still, you are not yet ready to transition into the next emotional cycle. Instead of planting a new crop of ideas in the garden of your imagination, think about the importance of the compost pile where today’s psychological garbage magically transforms into tomorrow’s healthy soil. Be patient and allow the process to evolve at its own pace.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Spending quality time with people who recognize your true self is certainly good for the soul. Group activities take up more of your life now that the Moon is camping out in your 11th House of Social Networking. However, your real challenge is to keep some energy in reserve to meet your emotional needs and those of your family. Don’t make foolish commitments in situations that aren’t fully connected to your heart. Acting with integrity keeps your intentions clearly transparent to everyone involved.
