Nearly everything seems to get better today, without much individual work on the issues. We are on a trajectory into the future but might not know where we’re heading. Nevertheless, the Moon flies into visionary Sagittarius at 2:06 am EDT, reaffirming our dreams to travel. Although the morning hours unfold smoothly, complications mount later in the day as our creative genius stretches her wings. Fly, baby, fly! There’s no need to settle for less.
You’re cruising for mischief and you’re likely to find it now. It’s not that you’re bored; you’re just feeling stuck in your current routine. You’re desperately in need of action, and it needs to happen soon. Although you are trying to be conscientious about your obligations today, someone may arrive to tempt you with an adventure that sounds too good to refuse. Get out of Dodge, even if it’s just for a day. Roman philosopher Seneca wrote, “Travel and change of pace impart new vigor to the mind.”
You are amazed by other people’s experiences when you hear their stories today. You’re equally inspired by their current accomplishments that seem to be made without help from others. Meanwhile, you reflect on all the good things that life has brought your way, and you wonder if you are making the most of these gifts. Paradoxically, the fact that you’re thinking along these lines is a new gift. It’s called the process of enlightenment, and you’re certainly open to receiving it. Don’t rush the rest. Sweeping changes rarely happen overnight. Every masterpiece was once a work in progress.
A difficult situation demonstrates the importance of being completely genuine with those you love. If that means bruising their feelings with the truth every now and then, so be it. When times are tough and people are not sure who to trust, they will come to you first, never doubting your word or questioning your loyalty. Being honest without being hurtful is an acquired skill that’s well worth the time it takes to learn, and it starts with being truthful with yourself. Self-awareness cultivates compassion for others.
You may have high hopes for the day from the moment your eyes open this morning. Chances are you’re feeling proud of yourself because you anticipate making some extremely positive changes in your daily routine and you can’t wait to get started. Your enthusiasm is contagious. Taking care of your health and wellbeing is the best way to ensure that you will be around to take care of others. Author Joyce Meyer wrote, “The greatest gift you can give to your family and the world is a healthy you.”
You possess the potential to make someone’s day, and it won’t even take much effort on your part. The philosophical Sagittarius Moon grants you the ability to bring a much-needed dose of mirth to a loved one with a heavy heart. Gently pull them aside, commiserate for a moment, and then -- ever so entertainingly, as is your style -- point out the humor in the situation. Be honest but not indelicate, and don’t be afraid to play the fool, if that’s what it takes to get your audience to laugh. Mark Twain said, “Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.”
Family members are not in the mood to sugarcoat their feelings, which puts you in an odd and uncomfortable spot. Choosing sides is out of the question unless you want to cause a major rift, but you’re afraid that sooner or later someone will insist on knowing where you stand. If you want to avoid getting involved in the squabble, beat them to it. Immediately explain that you love them both and don’t feel you know enough about the situation to form an opinion. Just because a person invites you to an argument doesn’t mean you have to go. Take the high road and don’t look back.
Anyone who asks for your feedback today is probably seeking the benefit of your famous fair-mindedness and impartiality. Still, critiquing someone is never easy, especially if you know this person is hoping for your validation. Fortunately, the openminded Sagittarius Moon is visiting your 3rd House of Communication, an astrological ally who can help take the sting out of things by inspiring you to swiftly serve up the truth in a wise and witty way. Finish up with words of praise for their accomplishments. Correction does much, but encouragement does more.
Your ambitious drive is in high gear today. A well-deserved raise, bonus, or promotion is closer than ever before. Thanks to your tireless efforts to keep everything running smoothly by ensuring that everyone is on the same page, a coworker has probably already put in a good word for you. However, it could be awhile before you hear anything solid, since Mercury is still in reverse for a few more days. In the meantime, toot your own horn. There’s nothing wrong with mentioning your accomplishments to those who matter most. Thankfully, the pride you take in your work is a reward of its own.
People call you an adventurous spirit for good reason. You may not have any big plans in place yet, but offers are en route now. You have a lovely habit of making the most out of every moment, an attitude that makes you quite the sought-after companion. An invitation to travel might also be on your agenda, and you must do whatever you can to clear your schedule and go. However, trickster Mercury is still pedaling backward, so don’t set the dates in stone just yet. Dr. Michael McGriffy said, “Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.”
You’re in the mood to ditch your responsibilities, but just thinking that thought feels like an irresponsible thing to do. Still, everyone needs playtime, and you’ve been severely deprived of it for some time now. Luckily, the fun-loving Sagittarius Moon insists that you lighten up and not take yourself quite so seriously today. You’ve been working nonstop to do your absolute best to make life easier for others. Devote a bit of quality time to yourself without any regret.
You’re eager to introduce yourself to someone who recently began to frequent your group’s regular haunts. According to your sources, this newcomer professes to be quite the authority on a subject that’s near and dear to your heart. You adore chatting with others who speak your language. Although you’re looking forward to a lively exchange, it’s best to wait until you know a bit more about a person prior to diving in. Listen carefully to their conversations before you initiate a dialogue and invest your time. Folklorist Alan Dundes said, “Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.”
Questioning authority is a wise move, but it could land you in hot water if you are careless. Think twice before you automatically agree to help implement an unreasonable rule today. If it doesn’t feel right, it’s appropriate to ask questions. This goes double if the powers that be are new to the job and you’ve been around forever. There’s something to be said for the wisdom of experience versus blindly following the rules. Wait until after Mercury goes direct and reassess the situation. A simple misunderstanding may have an obvious resolution when seen in a different light. Perspective changes everything.
