General Horoscope

We may feel as if we’re running out of time as the expressive Sun forms an anxious aspect to stern Saturn. Although we might lean on the reliable Taurus Moon to guide us through today’s obstacle course, Luna’s conflictive square to logical Mercury makes it difficult to separate facts from feelings. Mercury’s misalignment with nebulous Neptune confuses reality further. Thankfully, a powerful Moon-Pluto trine brings answers if we’re willing to go deep.

Savvy moves could land you in the winner’s circle today. You have the cosmic dexterity to clear the hurdles in your financial zone. Enormous changes arise at inconvenient times, but creatively strategic thinking saves the day. Go big in your negotiations without forcing outcomes.

Taurus Horoscope

Apr 20 - May 20

Test the waters with a few low-risk steps. Pay attention to the signs and signals, for all is not what it seems. Skepticism is warranted today as you may receive some harsh feedback or sobering news. Consider where you are invested more in fantasy than what’s actually happening. The truth may be tough to swallow, but it’s better to know the facts. Practical doesn’t have to mean boring; current circumstances require you to expand beyond what’s comfortable. Build in a personal reward for tonight as an incentive for your sincere effort. Trees that can bend to the force of the storm don’t break.

Gemini Horoscope

May 21 - Jun 20

Check in with your emotional wheelhouse and take stock of your inner workings. You think you know what you want, but egoic motivations and the need for praise do not create a solid foundation. Looks can be deceiving under this hazy planetary hookup, so call a time-out before you say something regretful. Be slow to react to proposals and question the fine print. If you find it hard to organize your thoughts, retreat to create space for contemplation. Author Gretchen Rubin wrote, “Self-awareness is a key to self-mastery.”

Cancer Horoscope

Jun 21 - Jul 22

Dial up some healthy skepticism and get to work. The hive mind is a potent persuader and you could be swayed by group-think today. Your networks can be unpredictable or contrarian, and even your sharp intuition struggles to get a read on the ever-shifting power dynamics. You may question whether someone you depend upon is flaky or up to something underhanded now. Leave gossip and other people’s affairs alone; bypass anyone baiting you into a battle of wills. However, if you can’t stay out of the fray, wear a helmet and play fairly. Bring on the charm offensive and minimize the drama.

Leo Horoscope

Jul 23 - Aug 22

Limit how much you shape-shift to accommodate others. Although it may be a tough day to get everyone on the same page, you are their colleague, not their caretaker. Telling people what they want to hear to keep the peace spells disaster. Intuition is a key component, since there’s much more happening here than meets the eye. Your desire for a certain outcome could blind you to the reality of the situation and cause you to overextend. However, if you’re the one leaning too heavily on a work partner for support now, fall back and give them room to breathe. Socrates wrote, “To find yourself, think for yourself.”

Virgo Horoscope

Aug 23 - Sep 22

Bite your tongue if you catch yourself about to dish unsolicited advice. Save the oversharing for another day when your mood is lighter. Your candor may be a bit much for others to handle under these combative skies. Soften your stance and be flexible in your view. Logic won’t help you solve troubling problems today, so think twice before you turn to anyone for feedback. You could upset someone by being too quick to state your observations, especially if they involve any unproven assumptions. Watch where you drop those truth bombs. Make a conscientious decision to put kindness first.

Libra Horoscope

Sep 23 - Oct 22

Tap into your patience for the win. Your diplomatic skills come in handy regarding a nearly signed contract or deal, but make sure you’re not giving away the store. It’s hard to make up your mind with so many appealing possibilities in front of you. Discordant energies leave you feeling like you're simultaneously stepping on the gas and slamming on the breaks. Someone’s motives could run deeper than you realize and pushing your agenda will only prove detrimental. Do more research before you move forward. Let go and be wise enough to wait for what you deserve.

Scorpio Horoscope

Oct 23 - Nov 21

Rushing toward permanence is a misstep when you’re operating in the dark. Know exactly what you’re getting into before committing to anything binding. You may not see someone's true nature clearly now, sparking control issues or even a battle of wills. You can either accept or reject subpar behavior in the form of mixed signals. Uncover every stone before investing in a person, place, or thing, and verify the facts. Ask for backup materials and references for more clarity. Time will reveal if the object of your affection is just a beautiful illusion or the real deal. The truth will set you free.

Sagittarius Horoscope

Nov 22 - Dec 21

Put on your poker face and shield your cards. Steady your play by bolstering your ideas with facts and figures. Explore new ways to delegate and get the job done more efficiently. Delay gratification and keep your strategy under wraps today. Although you may not realize it yet, a significant breakthrough is imminent, so remain focused on your game. Your secret weapon is patience; quietly observe the scene and shrewdly make your move at the right moment. Good things come to those who wait.

Capricorn Horoscope

Dec 22 - Jan 19

Regain your equilibrium and reclaim your power. If you’re starting to lose yourself in a creative project or are obsessing over a new crush, it’s time to flip the script. Plans for the future may be pipe dreams, and a casual idea can quickly conflate into a complicated one. Value your talents but be aware of your limitations. Start with the most fundamental steps and keep the momentum going. Frustration is understandable, but acting out is self-sabotage. Remember to laugh and enjoy yourself; take anything anyone says today with a grain of salt. Recognize where you end and others begin.

Aquarius Horoscope

Jan 20 - Feb 18

Sharing a long-held secret immediately lightens your load. However, just when you thought you were comfortable, an unexpected individual may come along to upend your plans. You might be holding back a little piece of yourself out of fear of being hurt, but stuffing down your emotions could make you more accident-prone. Carve out time to deal with your suppressed feelings appropriately. Although it makes sense to be vulnerable with someone who’s earned your trust over time, you may discover new companions who feel like home. Your open willingness to go there deepens the bond.

Pisces Horoscope

Feb 19 - Mar 20

Opportunity lies along a lesser-traveled road today. You blaze a path to transparent communication, leading by example and skipping the guilt trips. Over-emotionalism muddles your thinking; deliberation is key. You could hyper-focus on flaws and shortcomings or choose to overlook them and zero in on everything you adore. Go easy on the multitasking now. Someone close to you may pressure you to make a choice but you can refuse to be rushed or strong-armed. Express your true opinions even if you feel like a outlier. Don’t follow your dreams, follow your purpose.
