The pace of life slows down today once the Moon enters plodding Taurus at 12:03 am EDT. Although we are prompted to simplify our schedules, there are still a few unexpected surprises that cross our paths. The Moon hooks up with unorthodox Uranus, enabling us to personalize the most radical cosmic forces. A supernatural Mercury-Pluto alignment reveals how our words can precipitate events from parallel universes and alter the fabric of our lives.
You can’t pretend that your values are the same as your peers because your behavior gives away the truth. Ironically, your beliefs might typically be more aligned with everyone else’s, but you may be feeling particularly rebellious today. You don’t want anyone to think you’re on their team now as you channel the unconventional genius archetype -- and probably go out of the way to make your point. President John F. Kennedy said, “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
People might wonder if you are the same mild-mannered person you seemed to be just a few days ago. It’s as if you saw the light and can’t help but shine yours now. Now that the lightning has struck, you must plan your next act before the energy dissipates. While others slip into a day of rest, you are initiating bold action to express your idea of personal freedom in all that you do. Actor James Dean said, “Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.”
You can make a dark night of the soul feel like a tropical island vacation if only you know the magic password. While others struggle with the demons in their shadows now, you’re ready to break the code of silence and share your wisdom. Meanwhile, you can take complex spiritual ideas and express them in a manner that makes this information accessible to many. A sensitive soul sees the world through the lens of love.
You might prefer going on a spiritual quest rather than participating in a family gathering today. Nevertheless, attending a party can be fun as long as the conversations are meaningful. You want to talk about religion, politics and other controversial subjects. As soon as a discussion enters more mundane realms, you start to daydream about all the places you would rather be than your current location. The grass is not always greener somewhere else. Creating magic is possible wherever you are.
Communication is complicated today because you are trying to juggle everyone’s need to have their curiosity satisfied. Although you’re unable to accomplish the impossible, you can still make real headway on furthering your ambitions. But don’t expect steady advancement on your path to your success now. Linear progress is too restraining for your current taste anyhow. Prepare for sudden quantum leaps as you move forward. Socrates wrote, “Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.”
You are passionate about assuming a leadership role in your family or your community now. You can push past any doubts or insecurities and stand in front of a group in full possession of your confidence. Thankfully, practicality shows up in many forms today, empowering you to rescue a project which is floundering or to save a lost cause. Keep in mind that direction is more important than speed. As you well know, success without integrity is failure.
You may feel as if time is running out, but you won’t necessarily agree to perform additional responsibilities to meet a deadline. For example, if you have a renovation project in process at home, you might let a previously established due date pass rather than frantically trying to get everything done. However, you also possess a magic string that ties your past to your future, enabling you to know what you must accomplish to reach your goals. Author Aldous Huxley wrote, “The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age.”
You receive another chance from the cosmos to collaborate on a project today. Unfortunately, people seem unable to honor their commitments; they promise one thing then disappear the next. Since you have no way to prevent anyone else from experiencing a sudden change of plans, all you can do is gracefully manage your response to the ever-shifting circumstances. A well-developed sense of humor helps you to not take the actions of others too personally. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”
You’re talking to nearly everyone as you share your ideas on how today’s social media might impact tomorrow’s world. You’re trying to reach a concrete position, since you can’t even decide whether you think living in such a highly wired society is a good thing. Although you may be hooked in your own way to using modern technology, sometimes you fantasize about walking away from it all. Continue to gather opinions now without trying to reach a final answer. Remaining flexible offers you the best chance of coming out on top. Remember, what works for you doesn’t necessarily work for anyone else.
You can smoothly navigate in and out of tricky social situations today because you’re quick to access communication skills that are often beyond your capability. You have no problem being dead serious one minute and lighthearted the next. Your singularity of purpose combined with an easygoing charm woos even the most reluctant supporters now. But, as you know, words are only the beginning. What you say is important; but what you do is all that counts in the long run.
Although you may spend the day at home with family members, your mind is still preoccupied with your career goals. Fortunately, assistance arrives from a hidden source and you are able to accept it gratefully without needing to know where it came from. For example, someone might put in a good word for you, influencing the dynamics of where you go next with your strategy for success. Jim Rohn wrote, “You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.”
You are aware of the rules that must be followed if you want to distinguish yourself from the pack. However, you might be so swept up in the passion of the moment that you say more than you intend today. Overwhelming others with your intense emotions may throw them off center, and releasing information that should be kept under wraps can be problematic. Take a deep breath and think before you speak. Theologian Tryon Edwards wrote, “Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past.”
