The static from our own thinking is amplified today until it reaches a crescendo. An argumentative square between talkative Mercury and excessive Jupiter sets the stage for our monkey minds to chatter away. The Moon’s shift into jittery Gemini at 12:58 pm EDT raises the ante by reflecting our need for constant communication. Thankfully, we reach a point when we want peace and quiet as valuable Venus slips into virtuous Virgo this evening.
You can have most anything you desire if you ask in the right way. Where others may resort to passive aggression, your ability to be direct in approach is a gift. Be aware of your delivery. Put yourself in the shoes of your loved ones and partners when sharing ideas or making suggestions. When you focus on adding value to people’s lives, you will find your message more well-received. Maya Angelou said, “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
The cosmic emphasis is on your personal development today. Consider how your own lens to the world is just as valid as another person’s perspective. Any form of unrest stems from unresolved inner conflict. Empathy goes a long way in being effective, especially when you desire to make meaningful connection. Are your words nagging to the spirit or balm to the soul? Cheryl Richardson reminds us, “People start to heal the moment they feel heard.”
Your sharp wit and dazzling intellect receive a spark of amplification from today’s cosmic weather. The people closest to you are precious blessings, so be mindful of the messages you deliver to your loved ones. Take responsibility for your expression and think about the spells your words cast in each moment. Aristotle taught, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Come from a space of love and light, and you can’t go wrong.
Money’s on your mind, and your familial roots are the key to unlocking the door to prosperity. Start the week right by focusing on your personal goals and trusting in your capability to achieve them. Think about the talents and abilities you’ve received from those who came before you, and you’ll know how to proceed. Steer clear of petty behavior and sarcastic comments; any low-key snark will certainly backfire. Open your mind before your mouth.
Is your dial tuned to the back-to-me show? Conversations are a dance of give and take, so strive to show true interest in others. If you find yourself formulating a response, getting defensive, or searching for a similar story to reflect, take a pause and first let others know you hear them. It’s unnecessary to offer advice unless you are explicitly asked for it today. Know-it-alls are boring; curiosity and compassion look much better on you. Sophocles wrote, “Much wisdom often goes with fewest words.”
You may be feeling like a million bucks today, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend cash like there's no tomorrow. Retail therapy can be wonderful but stop and pause before swiping your card. Is this a necessity or an attempt to fill an emotional void? If the urge to indulge arises, consider the fact that material possessions bring but fleeting satisfaction. If you want to add something new, let go of the old taking up space in your sphere. Every time you subtract negative from your life, you make room for more positive.
You’re particularly charismatic while the planets light up your social networks. It's prudent to wield this cosmic gift of charm carefully lest it turn to egotism; your personal power may fizzle if your friends sense a hidden agenda. Share with transparency and testify to your own results. When you are engaged and excited about your own life, it’s easy to enroll others in the possibilities. Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.
Your mental faculties are razor sharp in the workplace, and there’s a sort of ethereal glow around your ideas today. However, wires still may cross when revealing your latest plans, so make sure you're holding a winning hand before you show all your cards. You can certainly get people on board with your initiatives but use precaution lest you come off as opportunistic now. Trust the timing of your life.
Your perceptions are keen today, and you know what you need to thrive. Your philosophical ideals are witty and your ruling planet Jupiter gives you extra sparkle when engaging with your friends. Tensions may surface out of the blue now, but they are only catalysts for growth. Create something for the benefit of a larger group, whether it’s a product, service, or more efficient way of being. Whatever inspires you most surely can help others. To whom much is given, much is required in return.
Peace is an inside job, but the world is interactive and not always agreeable. The system has a certain standard of operation to which you are generally attuned, but today brings the potential for clash. Swerve on power struggles by letting go of resistance and working with the resources at hand. You possess the authority to transform minds with your positive message, rather than being at the mercy of the matrix.
Your consciousness is expansive today, but your partners may feel more pressured than passionate. Pare down your ideas to the facts and the benefits for the sake of clarity. While your visual may be colorfully complex, clear communication is most effective for making your point. Nobody is impressed by words they don’t understand; your true genius shines when you are actually understood. Art critic Leonard Thiessen wrote, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Cultivate the garden of your mind by remaining dedicated to being your best self. Your mental state is a powerful force as it literally dictates the world you see. Your physical state is a reflection of your self-care; listen to the natural wisdom of your body. You are an ethereal spirit but stay centered within your core. Think before you act and extend yourself in service. Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
