We may grab our cosmic surfboards and head out to ride the rising waves of optimism today, even if current conditions don’t support our elation. Although desires take a back seat while mental Mercury and sweet Venus travel through responsible Capricorn, we can’t help but open our hearts with joyous Jupiter in the picture. Thankfully, the objective Libra Moon helps us balance our self-indulgent inclinations with a more self-disciplined approach.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You may be living under the illusion that you can finish all your work or, at least, make solid progress toward your current goals. However, you might end up spinning your wheels in order to spend time with someone who tugs on your heartstrings. Unfortunately, your relationship expectations could be unrealistic now that vulnerable Venus connects with buoyant Jupiter in your 5th House of Love. Forget about chasing the impossible dream because you have a better chance of finding happiness today by pursuing a more responsible path.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
You’re ready to head off on a wild adventure, but your common sense is telling you to exercise caution as your key planet Venus plods through conservative Capricorn. If you’re still involved in serious negotiations, don’t rush your response because you could view the current situation in an overly flattering light. Allow a few days to see where your feelings go before saying yes to a proposition that’s not really what you want. In the meantime, take a more practical approach by balancing your current desires with what you have to offer in return.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
Relationship issues have taken a turn toward the melodramatic now. You’re finally willing to let your demands slide today, but the power of your intensity still shines through. You’re more likely to be interested in hearing about what others want, especially if you’ve already taken a risk and put your needs out in the open. Thankfully, the odds are tilted in your favor, so don’t give in too quickly. Exploring what you have in common with your partner is healthy as long as you don’t compromise your values in the process.
Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You can’t wait to share your radical new ideas about your future, but they may be so outrageous that you’re likely to feel let down later when you return to earth. Scale back your expectations before you discover your limitations the hard way. Remain open to taking an entirely different path, but don’t try to force change yet. Exercising flexibility can save you from having to face unnecessary discouragement in the days ahead. No hurry, no worry; your secret strength is your natural ability to go with the flow.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Your vulnerability might make you uncomfortable with a current situation at work today. Nevertheless, find a way to express what’s in your heart without turning anyone into a scapegoat. In fact, you set up barriers to your happiness as soon as you slip into any kind of blame. Discuss your concerns with a trusted friend when you get a chance, but take full responsibility for your emotions. Ironically, nothing has to change; you will feel better about the whole situation once you know that you have been seen and heard.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
All of a sudden, romance seems more of a priority now that affectionate Venus is traveling through your 5th House of Love and Play. Juggling current obligations with your desire for fun could muddy the waters between you and a friend. Although your actions speak loudly, your words also pack a powerful punch. Explaining your intentions as clearly as you can opens the door to more meaningful interactions. Find the sweet spot between being practical and following your heart.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
It may be smarter to hold onto your current job for a while longer even if you’ve been considering ways to break out of the status quo. Unfortunately, your positive outlook alone isn’t sufficient to resolve all the underlying problems. This is no time for complacency because making minor adjustments to your daily routine now could create much more impact than you realize. Don’t worry; big changes are still on the horizon. In the meantime, take care of your immediate responsibilities while keeping a hopeful eye on the future.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Sometimes you are so disappointed by other people’s responses to your heartfelt disclosures that you decide to withhold your true feelings so you don’t upset those you love. However, you can confidently share your feelings without self-restraint today because diplomatic Venus’ presence in your 3th House of Communication softens the hard edges of your message. Thankfully, expressing your truth with kindness now could get you exactly what you want.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
An ongoing disagreement about your core beliefs may be temporarily set aside today as a fair compromise is on the negotiating table. However, the underlying tension is still present and must be handled eventually. Putting your differences of opinion on hold now doesn’t mean your conversations have to be superficial. Establishing sufficient common ground allows you to make steady progress on other issues of concern that can also be resolved at this time. As Einstein wrote, “ninety-nine percent of genius is knowing what’s important.”
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You want to take care of everyone’s needs at work now that the nurturing Moon is camping out in your 10th House of Career. You might find yourself in over your head, even if your intentions are honorable. Fortunately, others appreciate your efforts and won’t judge you unfairly if you fall short of your goals. Set healthy priorities so you don’t spread yourself too thin today. Thankfully, the ripple effect works in your favor; you never know how much good one simple deed can manifest.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It’s no simple task to keep other people’s problems separate from your own because you’re hypersensitive to everyone’s feelings today. You may believe that you have enough ingenuity to fix all the world’s problems now, only to realize that your resources are limited in scope. Instead of trying to be a superhero, just offer your emotional support and a shoulder to lean on. Speak from your heart; the right words have the power to heal in ways you can’t imagine.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
There’s an irresistible sparkle in your eyes and a bounce in your step that make it a pleasure to be in your company today. Luckily, you can parlay your cosmic good fortune into something even better if you’re willing to close up shop to build a new one. But instead of just telling others what you want, go out of your way to bring happiness to those you love. Your generosity will be paid back to you many times over if your heart is in the right place.
