A unity of purpose could be invigorating right now. The passionate Moon conjoins social Venus at 8:26 am EST and meets intellectual Mercury shortly after that, all in fiery Sagittarius. Our emotional needs are likely to be in tune with both our desires and our ability to express them. Luna then aligns with perceptive Chiron, inciting unexpectedly serious discussions. We’d be better off not pushing for too much openness too soon, as the Moon awkwardly nudges uncomfortable Uranus. Things will unfold when they need to!
March 21-April 19
Seeing how your political or spiritual beliefs address your personal wounds might feel simple at first glance. Does this mean your philosophies are objectively correct? You might ask yourself that — especially if living up to your own standards is costing you financially. Successfully applying theoretical knowledge in a practical space is impressive, and it’s okay if, for you, that justifies any sacrifices you must make. Be attentive to whether you feel resentful or vindicated as you watch your investment play out.
April 20-May 20
Crowdsourcing financial advice may appeal to you at the moment. While there’s nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it, the bigger issue might be that you don’t fully trust your own judgment. Maybe you’re drawn to something risky, but you want the idea to come out of someone else’s mouth so you can blame them if it doesn’t succeed. As long as there’s no rush to act immediately, take all the time that’s necessary to make a thoughtful decision.
May 21-June 20
Experiencing a strong one-on-one connection today could encourage you to update your approach to relationships. It’s possible that you formed certain strategies during a period in your life when you felt less socially accepted than you do now. You might be the last to recognize that your situation has changed. If a workaround you’re used to has become unproductive, it’s time to admit it and commit to a more authentic approach. You won’t experience the reward if you don’t take the risk!
June 21-July 22
You might be moments from discovering your aptitude for a task you always thought you were bad at. Your pride in this achievement could be tainted by your memories of a critical authority figure who was involved in your disappointing earlier attempts. Having fresh experiences with your current friends can ultimately change your associations with the activity, but you’re allowed to grieve the past a bit before you fully embrace the present. Maybe seeing what works now will illuminate what previously went wrong.
July 23-August 22
Embracing a playful spirit can currently give you needed perspective on any of your beliefs about the world that have become too serious. The hard part could be claiming your right to experience joy. You might feel obligated to obey the ideologies of an authority figure who insists on cracking your rose-colored lenses. Think about whether or not that person is as powerful as they used to be. An updated look at the dynamics may reveal that you already have the breathing room you seek.
August 23-September 22
You may believe that you’re capable of sharing space without drama. When present circumstances press you to define that further, it might turn out that your vision of peace assumes that others will defer to your views on domestic matters. A fulfilling collaboration is possible, but it could require you to compromise. Instead of overwhelming people with emotional reasons why things should be done the way you want, try to take the first step toward your ideal, nurturing atmosphere by listening to them.
September 23-October 22
A freely flowing conversation can help you patch up recent discomfort in a close relationship. That said, you may struggle to figure out how much you want to reveal about a deeply personal topic. Even if sharing a secret could fill an awkward gap in your communication, it’s valid if you’re not sure just how much you can trust the other person. No matter what results you expect from your disclosure, taking the risk is likely to have a surprising result!
October 23-November 21
An impulse purchase could be appealing today. As the spontaneous Moon and pleasure-focused Venus conspire in your 2nd House of Possessions, they’re pulling you to pursue something that feels good in the moment — even if it isn’t exactly in your budget. Although whoever you’re shopping with might not understand what you see in the item or service you’ve chosen, you may find that it helps you enjoy your physical body more. You deserve a little bit of reasonable retail therapy!
November 22-December 21
Expressing yourself has great healing potential on multiple levels at this time. You’re probably more grounded in your corporeal body than normal, thanks to the sensitive Moon and sensual Venus embracing in your sign. The odd twinges and sensations you feel could be important clues about something personal you’d benefit from sharing with others — or at least accepting more honestly on your own. Once any emotional tension you’re experiencing lessens, you may be surprised to discover that you also feel better physically!
December 22-January 19
Dreams are filled with soothing possibilities at this moment. Accessing your softer side may seem easier than ever. As the tender Moon and gentle Venus meet in your 12th House of the Subconscious, you might be asking yourself if you can bring that kinder energy into the rest of your life. Expressing your more vulnerable thoughts too impulsively could lead to discouraging results. Fortunately, a thoughtful negotiation with the emotional walls that protect you should end with a rewarding compromise.
January 20-February 18
Nurturing your friends may come easily to you today. With the perceptive Moon and pleasant Venus united in your social 11th house, you’re capable of reading the room well and knowing what people need. You could even be an expert listener to someone else who needs to vent. On the other hand, the thought of opening up about your own problems is probably more threatening to your sense of security. Consider the possibility that reciprocal disclosure can be necessary to truly build a bond.
February 19-March 20
You might currently be drawn to a professional opportunity that showcases your ability to nurture others. Try to be realistic with yourself about whether or not this will give you what you need to take care of yourself. A job that doesn’t pay you what you’re worth will eventually leave you feeling resentful over time, despite any other perks. If you have trouble explaining the trade-offs to someone else in a way that sounds logical, that’s probably a signal you should look elsewhere.
