We can’t decide whether we should surrender to our intense desires today or suppress them once the Moon shifts into all-or-nothing Scorpio at 9:51 am EST. Although energetic Mars in emotionally detached Aquarius cools our romantic engines, our hearts cannot be denied as amorous Venus closes in on relentless Pluto. The stressful conflict between cold logic and hot passion is soothed by our fantasies as the Moon harmonizes with dreamy Neptune.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Keeping your feet on the ground isn’t an easy matter today, for you’re tempted to set aside the basic facts to chase an unreachable fantasy. Although ignoring the truth may seem like a clever idea, you can’t escape your obligations by just slipping off into another dimension. Fortunately, you can still make good use of your imagination without having to fool anyone if you have the courage to take responsibility for your actions. Walk your talk and you will come out on top.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
You are pulled in opposite directions today because you truly want to take care of serious issues as they arise. Paradoxically, you simultaneously wish you could put them off for a while longer. Your innate no-nonsense approach prompts you to deal with unfinished business right away, but you may be at the mercy of your ruling planet Venus as she entices you with more pleasurable pursuits. Keeping up appearances at work provides you with enough cover to get away with a bit of mischief without rocking the boat.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
Life seems a little less intense today and you may relax your concerns about how to make everything work. You feel a lighter energy blowing in like a tropical breeze, inspiring you to see the upside of almost any situation. Although your positive attitude usually works in your favor, you might overstep your limits now by ignoring your feelings just because they’re inconvenient. Focus on the truth instead of the easy way out. The right mix of positivity and practicality is the secret to your success.
Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Your intuition is operating at a high level of efficiency now that the reflective Moon is traveling through perceptive Scorpio. However, you still might attempt to bury your feelings if you see the possibility of pursuing pleasure, rather than truth. Having solid data on which to build your plans is ideal, but objectivity is elusive today as your daydreams leak into the real world. Remember, facts can only take you so far while your imagination carries you wherever you want to go.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You’re suddenly intrigued by the hidden mysteries of the cosmos and you want to know what’s going on beneath the surface. However, this metaphysical fascination is at odds with a more primal desire that arises from the pleasure center of your brain. Although detaching from your feelings sounds like a workable strategy, dreams of real intimacy lure you back into your heart. More isn’t always better; you can enjoy a rainbow for its inherent beauty without having to dig for a pot of gold, too.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Opportunities abound to cultivate new friendships or even become romantically attracted to someone you meet through your job. However, others might become more emotional than you prefer, motivating you to withdraw into your shell. But the only way to develop enduring relationships built on strong foundations is to stick around even when you feel uncomfortable. Surprisingly, letting go of your resistance to emotional expression can also be the key to unleashing your creativity.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
A shift of cosmic energy drives you to seek extra emotional intensity in all interactions now. You might even want to re-energize a current relationship or create sparks in a new one. However, you’re not sure if shiny lights and romantic fantasies are distracting you from the real work at hand. The good news is you don’t have to choose; walking in both worlds today enables you to enjoy the fun and games while also making connections on a deeper and more meaningful level.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may have your heart set on an impossible partnership, yet compassion is overtaking passion now as your top priority. The Moon’s shift into your sign reminds you to establish new relationship priorities and her trine to spiritual Neptune raises the bar of excellence. Unfortunately, finding satisfaction in the real world is challenging when your dreams are so idealistic. Ironically, reconnecting with your inner self strengthens your bonds with others. Just remember, happiness is more likely to be found if you don’t expect perfection from anyone, including yourself.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You’re a proponent of professional camaraderie, but are not so interested in pursuing anything beyond a bit of entertaining conversation today if it interferes with accomplishing your goals. However, don’t be too self-critical if you can’t seem to make much headway on your work. Give yourself permission to kick off your shoes and dance. Luckily, you’ll have a chance later in the week to make up for any lack of productivity now.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You might be so deeply entrenched in the status quo that you struggle with an ongoing shift of power in your business world. Even if you think that stirring up the energy at work is necessary now, the uncertainty in the air still makes you nervous. Remove the pressure by taking a few more days to decide your next move. However, you can’t stop the wheels of progress for long. Once you make up your mind, you can assume an important leadership role in the transformation. But in the meantime, fly beneath the radar for the best results.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It seems as if you are being granted an unexpected reprieve today because you suddenly have more time to reach your goals. Thankfully, you’re quite optimistic about your chances for success, so you can play it cool without worrying about making too many changes. Although there’s no need to panic or finish everything right away, there is also no reason to restrain your creativity. Now that assertive Mars is back in your sign, just follow your instincts and let your convictions work their magic. Nature will take its course and pull you along for the ride.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Indulging in your favorite daydreams is addictive, so it’s essential to balance your fantasies with reality. However, the Moon’s sweet trine to imaginative Neptune in your sign makes it tricky to find the dividing line between fact and fiction now. Instead of struggling to gain clarity today, relax and go with the flow. There is much wisdom to be discovered from your current exploration of the metaphysical realms. Trust the process; you’ll be back in the real world before you know it.
