We are tempted to bet on a long shot today and promise more than we can ultimately deliver as action-hero Mars forms an anxious aspect with exaggerating Jupiter. Although the extroverted Leo Moon joins Jupiter, encouraging us to share positive feelings, we may overreact and stir up conflict instead. Maintaining an optimistic attitude is healthy if we don’t blind ourselves to the facts. Thankfully, a Sun-Saturn connection adds a taste of reality.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Someone close to you may push your emotional buttons today. Although you try to look the other way, you probably won’t be able to hide your annoyance while assertive Mars aligns with self-righteous Jupiter. Presenting a smiling face won’t be enough to avoid an interaction that could erupt into an unpleasant encounter. Thankfully, you can turn this difficult situation around by transforming your anger into compassion. Showing a little love and a lot of understanding goes a long way now toward making everyone happy.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
You might feel as if it’s time to set the record straight. You are prepared for a confrontation, if necessary, but everyone seems to mellow as the day draws on. Setting aside logic enables you to ride the emotional waves that originate within your subconscious without trying to suppress them. Although the relentless Leo Moon proves to be inflexible and tricky to handle, sharing an intimate experience can soften the energy and help to overcome your fears.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
It’s one thing to be absolutely sure of what you want, but fixating on any one particular goal is likely to bring you unhappiness today. You have a special opportunity now to push past an associate’s judgment that’s bothered you in the past more than it should. More importantly, you can use the power of positive thinking to turn a potentially obsessive approach into one that’s certainly more manageable in the days to come. Pursue your dreams with a light touch and a joyful heart.
Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Your current resistance to change may be an obstacle to intimacy today. It’s risky to reveal your feelings, so you might just let the present moment pass without saying anything at all. However, you have a chance to release an old pattern now. Start tentatively and focus on what is in your heart. Ultimately, your willingness to share your vulnerability can deepen your connection with someone you love.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You can feel the magic of romance everywhere you go today. However, a dynamic change in a relationship won’t likely happen until you’re willing to listen to your partner and receive the same support you give so easily. Keep in mind that everything isn’t always fun and games and that opening your heart to love also means opening it to heartache. Fortunately, a highly charged emotional interaction could morph into a more comfortable one later on if you’re willing to let the process take its course.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You desire a quick resolution to a lingering disagreement and may try to force an issue in order to catalyze an already unstable situation. Don’t push your luck by demanding that everyone stop in their tracks and listen to your every word. Paradoxically, your intentional avoidance of a tough issue can be just as dangerous as placing it the spotlight. Allowing your feelings to surface naturally without judging them as right or wrong keeps you on the path to emotional equilibrium.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You may feel weary from following the dramas of your friends and associates, yet their stories have somehow become yours. It’s no simple task to separate yourself from all the interpersonal relationships that require your time and attention. Although your stress might not disappear overnight, there’s movement that brings you some comfort today. Don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Leaning on a trusted companion can help just enough to move things in the right direction.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You can’t escape from your powerful feelings, even if it’s not easy to integrate them into your day. Although it’s usually wise to share what you want with someone you love, it’s unfair to make him or her responsible for your satisfaction. Staying somewhat detached from the outcome creates sacred space for an original solution to magically unfold. Practicing just a touch of emotional self-restraint at the right moment can make all the difference in the world.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You may jump to conclusions today, assuming you can get your needs met without even considering how others might respond to your actions. An irritating aspect between warrior Mars and bombastic Jupiter warps your perspective and could trigger behavior that’s out of proportion with the current situation. There’s no need to turn a minor setback into a national emergency. Quietly working behind the scenes accomplishes more than making a scene. Just remember, there is no free lunch; prepare to work harder than ever if you want to find lasting satisfaction.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You might try to resist the pressure to reexamine your feelings today, for self-exploration currently seems like a lot of work without much benefit in return. Unfortunately, your desire to cling to the status quo could cost you dearly if you let an opportunity pass you by. Keep in mind that the real reward won’t likely be found in riches or recognition, especially now karmic Saturn is activating the Sun in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. The good news is that you have a chance to experience a spiritual growth spurt, which can bring a kind of happiness that money can’t buy.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
A casual discussion with a friend or partner today might raise unexpected emotional issues. Although this conversation may be constructive, it’s easy to slip into disagreement over your conflicting needs. Applying a healthy dose of compassion helps you understand that you can have differing perspectives while still supporting one another’s dreams. This mutual appreciation is a prerequisite to discovering a treasure that ultimately strengthens your relationship in a surprising manner.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Although it’s not easy to comprehend all the forces that brought you to this very moment in your life, you’re particularly clear about what you want to happen next. Unfortunately, current circumstances may not be very forgiving, offering you less leeway to respond to a complicated emotional dynamic. Luckily, you can make your decision-making process easier if you’re willing to wait for satisfaction. Your patience is the key to ultimately achieving your goals.
