We must navigate tricky territory when the planets encourage us early in the day and then discourage us later on. An enthusiastic Mars-Jupiter trine inspires confidence; we feel like we can do anything. But self-doubt enters the picture as sweet Venus rubs strict Saturn the wrong way. Thankfully, the dualistic Libra Moon enables us to experience both positive and negative feelings while following a path that is based upon moderating the extremes.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Your ruling planet Mars is supported by buoyant Jupiter today, motivating you to act on your feelings. You feel secure enough to express emotions that would normally make you feel uncomfortably vulnerable. Although your current zest for life may be contagious, you might grow more circumspect toward the evening. Respecting established boundaries now prevents you from having to reconsider your radical approach later on.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Your key planet Venus forms a stressful aspect to somber Saturn tonight, reminding you that common sense will ultimately overcome your enthusiasm. However, don't let your self-restraint kick into action too early in the day or you may miss the other planetary excitement bubbling around you. Starting a new project is a good idea as long as you're willing to follow through with sincere effort after the initial buzz wears off.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
At first everyone seems to be having a fine time, but you can see beneath the surface and the atmosphere isn't as copacetic as it appears. It isn't your style to rain on someone else's parade, yet the responsibility may fall on you to be the one to issue a reality check. Nevertheless, there's no reason to approach the situation with negativity. Express your thoughts as kindly as possible and then let go of your attachment to what happens next.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You feel the power of love today but you may not reveal your true passion, especially if the thought of expressing your desires makes you uncomfortable. Although you don't like being emotionally vulnerable on a regular basis, there's no need to let your irrational fears stand in the way of a potentially lovely experience. Instead of trying to control the process, just share what's in your heart without expecting anything in return.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Although there are many excellent reasons to work in partnership now, be certain you have all the facts at your disposal before you make faulty assumptions. It's tempting to overlook something you don't want to know, but it's better to be rational and have a solid handle on reality today. Ironically, acknowledging the weight of responsibility opens the doors for more pleasurable times. Do the right thing when it comes to matters of the heart and the rewards will follow.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You feel like you have an inexhaustible supply of energy today, prompting you to reach for the stars. Fortunately, harmonious trines to auspicious Jupiter in your 10th House of Status suggest that you could make a lot of progress toward your career objectives now. There's nothing wrong with setting ambitious goals as long as you're willing to earn your success gradually by working harder than everyone else.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Your exuberance is apparent in everything you do today as long as you're being creative. Luckily, you can maintain your sense of optimism if you focus your attention on the future. However, lingering doubts about your ability to follow through with what you start can raise old fears. Talk things over with a trusted friend instead of denying your concerns. Once your issues are out in the open, you'll be able to move forward without carrying the weight of the past on your shoulders.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Sink into your own feelings today as energetic Mars activates your 4th House of Emotional Security. Your current optimism might inspire others; however a slight case of self-doubt could gnaw away at your confidence. This negativity may just be a passing thought if you are flexible in your thinking. Once you realize the source of your anxiety, you can easily move past it and refocus on the opportunities at hand.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Your ruling planet Jupiter is a key player in today's expressive cosmic configuration, pulling you head-first into the realm of relationships. Be careful about going overboard with your enthusiasm, especially if you are using it to cover a deeper concern. Finding a healthy balance between the adrenaline rush of reckless abandon and the dutiful routine of emotional responsibility isn't easy, but well worth the trouble.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Demonstrating your competence at work is effortless today because everything seems to be going your way. Unfortunately, you may be so sure of yourself now that you take the path of least resistance rather than doing a job in your typically thorough manner. However, you could find yourself in trouble quickly unless you pay attention to all the little details. You can let your hair down and relax once you've fulfilled your current obligations, but not a moment sooner.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Jovial Jupiter is harmonizing with irrepressible Mars in your 1st House of Personality today, pushing your exuberance to the surface. Everyone can see that you're putting your best foot forward, but you may not feel quite as optimistic as you appear. You have legitimate concerns about the actions of others; but instead of wasting your energy making judgments about someone else, change your own thinking. No one else's behavior needs to negatively impact your day, unless you let it.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your imagination is often a path for escape, yet today you can dream your way to success as long as you're willing to cooperate with others on the job. Even if you're tempted to withdraw from social interaction, push past your resistance and reach out to your co-workers now. Instead of worrying about what anyone else thinks about your contribution, just show up and be yourself. You may be happily surprised with the positive reinforcement you receive in return.
