Overview

The selfish Sun makes a square to pushy Mars today. Arguments can break out over petty matters. Instead of pouring more gas on this fire, make a strategic retreat. It would be a shame to get into a war of words with someone who feels angry and powerless. In situations like these, a little compassion can go a long way. Fortunately, gentle Venus forms a sextile to Mars. Smoothing over disagreements can be simple. It's simply a matter of extending an olive branch. Don't focus on who is right and who is wrong. Concentrate on creating a respectful dynamic where both parties are heard.

Looking ahead, the intuitive Pisces Moon makes supportive angles to Mercury, Venus, Mars and Pluto. Ignore conventional wisdom and obey a powerful instinct.

Aries


sun_in_aries_55
Take a scholarly approach to your work or studies today. Your mind is even keener than usual, enabling you to view a problem or situation with a dispassionate, scientific eye. Taking emotion out of the equation can be a real help in determining the right move or plan, because your thinking is purely logical. You're also open to experimentation based on your own observations, so keep an idea log and get to work.

Taurus


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Change -- even the good kind -- tends to make you a bit ill at ease. You enjoy your routine, and prefer rules and systems you understand to ones that are challenging in their newness. But today, you might have to cope with new rules or unfamiliar ideas. Instead of rejecting these out of hand, do your best to greet them with a tolerant, accepting attitude. That will help you absorb new information faster.

Gemini

Your thinking is wonderfully unconventional today. By modeling your taste for the unusual, you can inspire the people around you to break outside the narrow confines of their own experiences and expectations. You're a real maverick, with diverse, even eccentric interests. Have fun pursuing strange ideas simply for their own sake. Even if this doesn't lead you anywhere specific, it's just a great day to exercise your pioneering spirit.

Cancer


sun_in_cancer_34
Since you're sensitive to shifts in your relationships, you may notice a cooling off in one of your close connections today. If so, avoid taking it personally or blowing it out of proportion. Many people need space under the current cosmic influence. If nothing else, they need time to think, to process their ideas and perceptions. If that comes out in the form of emotional detachment, know that it is temporary.

Leo


sun_in_leo_36
Group efforts are highlighted today, so join forces with like-minded people. There's power in numbers, and there's something very creative about bouncing your thoughts off other people. But to make this process work for you, it's important to set your ego aside. If someone challenges one of your pet theories, don't take it personally. That's what teamwork is for: to help you generate your best, brightest and most workable ideas.

Virgo


sun_in_virgo_120
Unfamiliar concepts and disciplines capture your interest today. It's interesting to consider atypical ideas -- and it might be a bit disconcerting. But you're too practical to court strange, unusual people or subjects purely for the sake of strangeness itself. If you're interested in something or someone, it's probably for good reason. So keep a cool head as you take a scientific approach to finding out more about this intriguing subject.

Libra


sun_in_libra_67
You're intellectually attuned to the world around you today. You'll approach everything you do with a sense of curiosity and a scientific eye, reasoning through the variables and testing out the possibilities until you arrive at a workable conclusion. This is an exciting and engaging process, even if you're working on something you would normally find tedious. Enjoy the sense of discovery, and the feeling of giving yourself a mental workout.

Scorpio


sun_in_scorpio_42
Change is in the air today. There's an almost electric feeling to your experiences now, as if inspiration and transformation are right around the corner. If you've been stuck in a rut, this will come as a welcome relief. But keep in mind the old cautionary tale about throwing the baby out with the bath water. It's healthy to jettison anything that isn't working, as long as you retain what still functions well.

Sagittarius


sun_in_sagittarius_52
You're a maverick at heart, which makes today's cosmic energy especially fun. Unique self-expression is favored now. Your best ideas and opportunities will come from being truly yourself without apology. Unconventional ideas could actually turn out to be groundbreaking -- but only if you voice and act on them. And you never know which of your musings will turn out to be the one that makes things better for everyone.

Capricorn


Another Goat Shot
Think like a scientist today. Embrace abstract concepts. Just because you can't measure them doesn't mean they have no worth. Under the current energy, following a path of inquiry is as simple as asking yourself, 'What if?' Then reason through the answers that present themselves to you -- even the wild ones. Now you're taking a scholarly approach to life, and you'll come through this with greater knowledge about the subject you've been exploring.

Aquarius


sun_in_aquarius_20
Surround yourself with thinking people today -- folks who share your urge to advance an important cause. Teamwork goes well now, because everyone is focused on the same thing: honing ideas, thinking outside the box and changing the world. Your mind is especially keen under the current influence, which makes you an asset to any brainstorming group. Tap into the brilliance that lives inside you, and wow your admirers.

Pisces


sun_in_pisces_31
A strange and interesting vibe is at work today. You may feel drawn to highly unusual ideas. You find eccentric people fascinating now, and you're open-minded enough to accept someone's quirks. This is a good thing, as long as you're getting what you need out of the relationship, too. There's no need to compromise your personal standards purely for the sake of soaking up that odd, nonconformist energy.

Overview

The New Moon rises in impersonal Aquarius today. It could be hard to relate to others under this alienating influence, especially for Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Instead of trying to work as a team, it's probably better to go solo. Brilliant breakthroughs can occur when operating independently. Don't be intimidated by pushy authority figures. Everybody is in a rush. Submitting work before it is ready could be cause for regret. Ask for more time and remain calm. Eventually, cooler heads will prevail and a reasonable deadline will be granted. It's better to do things properly than quickly. Rushing will only cause mistakes that will have to be corrected later.

Looking ahead, the thoughtful Sun will be continuing its journey through logical Aquarius, while the emotive Moon will be passing through impassioned Taurus. It could be difficult to make important decisions.

Aries


sun_in_aries_55
Your inner rebel comes out to play today. If you focus this energy on a particular goal -- especially one that's aimed at bettering the world in some way -- you can make important progress that benefits more people than just yourself. And while you may not normally be the humanitarian type, you're in a do-gooder state of mind right now. Give yourself some time to consider your options, and then get to work!

Taurus


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The world seems poised for some sort of major transformation today. But you would gladly opt for the status quo, thank you very much. You just aren't much for change; you never have been. You prefer to know what's coming, and the idea of life being up in the air makes you uncomfortable. But remember that change means growth, while staying the same leads to stagnation. Surely your practical soul can appreciate that logic!

Gemini


Army twins, Myrtle Beach, S.C., natives serve in Iraq
Welcome to an enjoyable, exciting day, one that encourages you to tap into your greatest strength -- namely, your keen intelligence. You're thinking like a scientist, developing theories based on what you see combined with what you already know. It's fun to test your ideas, too. You don't mind if they turn out to be incorrect. Every piece of knowledge you gather contributes to a greater understanding of the world at large.

Cancer


sun_in_cancer_34
There's an odd, zany energy at work today -- and it could make you distinctly uncomfortable. After all, you aren't typically attracted to unusual people or ideas for the sake of strangeness itself. It takes you some time to become acclimated to new conditions of any kind. If sudden changes occur in some realm of your life today, do your best to trust that things will work out in the end.

Leo


sun_in_leo_36
Today, a strong desire kicks in to improve the world around you. Creating positive change is truly a valiant pursuit -- even if you're in it for the glory. Your natural energy and creativity enhance any cause, and if you get to bask in accolades after your hard work, so much the better! Just don't get caught up in thinking that your work was in vain if no one pats you on the back for it.

Virgo


sun_in_virgo_120
Change is in the air today. Many people are in the mood to work together toward a common goal, especially one aimed at helping someone or something -- the environment, for example, or disadvantaged people who could use some assistance. If you're a part of a group like this, your natural skill set is a real asset. You'll keep everyone grounded in reality and practicality, when they might otherwise base too much on idealistic notions.

Libra


sun_in_libra_67
Your outlook is fresh today, and your ideas are downright wacky. And yet, there's a method to your madness. Anyone watching you is sure to marvel at your ingenious methods. You're creative by nature, and the current influence heightens your ability to look at life from an utterly new and inspired perspective. Reason is also on your side, and logic blended with innovation is an unbeatable combination.

Scorpio


sun_in_scorpio_42
Today you're drawn to unconventional people and subjects. The weirder, the better! It's fine to dabble in strange pursuits, even if you're simply attracted for the sake of strangeness itself. Just avoid making any major decisions based on a need to be seen as unusual. The people who know you already know that you march to the beat of your own drummer, so you have nothing to prove on their account!

Sagittarius


sun_in_sagittarius_52
It's a great day for constructing new knowledge. Your thoughts are zinging around like lightning bolts, and you're making connections that wouldn't have occurred to you just a day or two ago. But don't be haphazard in your thinking. A systematic approach to testing out new theories works best. If you work through things carefully and rationally, you stand to develop something utterly solid and useable in the real world.

Capricorn


Another Goat Shot
Working solely for your own interests isn't favored today. Instead, turn your focus toward what's best for the group. This might mean considering your family's feelings before your own, or your coworkers' ideas; it might also mean volunteering to do some charity work, or making a financial donation to a cause you support. Find a way to honor the fact that you're one small part of a greater whole.

Aquarius


sun_in_aquarius_20
Today is your day. You're in an open, seeking frame of mind, but you won't settle for simple idealism or speculation. Instead, you'll subject every new idea to rigorous testing. The same goes for old ideas, too. You're questioning everything! And that's the way it should be. You're smart enough not to assume that the status quo makes more sense than anything new that might be developed through deliberate experimentation.

Pisces


sun_in_pisces_31
Your quirky side is highlighted today. You've always been somewhat different from the crowd, and right now that's obvious to everyone, in a very positive way. After all, being the same as everyone else would be so boring! Nurture your uniqueness by pursuing a subject you find deeply, personally interesting today. Let your mind roam where it will. Don't restrain your ideas or your extensive creativity.

Overview

A trine between appreciative Venus and encouraging Jupiter makes it a lovely day. The secret to success is staying positive. Compliment others for doing thankless jobs. Praise those who feel unappreciated. Offer to help someone who is struggling. Small gestures make a big difference under this influence, especially for Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Financial prosperity can take flower. This is a wonderful opportunity to apply for a job, submit a creative idea or patent an invention. Any money that comes in should be spent on luxuries. It's important to be fiscally responsible, but it's also critical to enjoy the finer things in life from time to time.

Looking ahead, the impulsive Aries Moon will form squares to both Venus and Pluto. Failing to meet responsibilities may result in disaster. Stay focused and productive.

Aries


sun_in_aries_55
Today you're in a softhearted, dreamy state of mind. You might find it hard to focus, because your thoughts keep wandering elsewhere. It's a great day to connect with someone you love. Simply sitting with a friend or relative is nice, even if you aren't talking or interacting much. You can commune with each other on a more emotional level. It's actually a relief not to have to assert yourself!

Taurus


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
It's a thin barrier between conscious and unconscious experience today. You might notice your dreams become more vivid and symbolic, or that your experience of love -- something intangible and indefinable -- becomes almost transcendent. You're in touch now with the divine, or you have the potential to be! Enjoy this cosmic influence, and this feeling of being spiritually in touch with the people around you. Reach out to them heart-first.

Gemini


Army twins, Myrtle Beach, S.C., natives serve in Iraq
There's a strong emphasis today on compassion. You might need a little extra understanding from others, yourself. If you're feeling a little off center emotionally, there's a good chance other people are, too. That's the current cosmic influence at work, making everyone feel things a little more deeply. Reason and logic recede as pure emotion takes over. Be kind to yourself and others until this influence passes!

Cancer


sun_in_cancer_34
You've got a lot of concern for other people today. It's second nature for you to offer help and support. And your core of strength helps you protect yourself from anyone who would take advantage of your kindness. This is a great combination of qualities, one that lets you be effective in a way that's very much you: solid and soft all at once, tender and yet as strong as steel.

Leo


sun_in_leo_36
Don't be surprised if you slip into a moody space today. Your emotions may not be overwhelming but they run deep, and right now they're all over the place. You may have a sense of being saturated with more feeling than you know what to do with! If you need to talk about your emotions, choose a warmhearted, sympathetic friend who can help you muddle through and make sense of them.

Virgo


sun_in_virgo_120
Your desire to help others is innate, and today it swells within you. People may seem a little out of it right now, which makes you want to jump in and be the competent one. Taking care of business is your forte, after all. But don't be surprised if doing so is tougher than you expected. You aren't quite on top of your game, either! Be lenient with yourself, Virgo.

Libra


sun_in_libra_67
Idealism swells today. Beware its siren call! Okay, there's really nothing wrong with that sweet sense of hoping for your dreams and visions to come true. If you can't envision your dreams, you can't bring them about in reality. But right now, disillusionment is possible if things don't pan out as you'd imagined. That's why a grounded sense of perspective is so important. It keeps your dreams alive, not to mention realistic.

Scorpio


sun_in_scorpio_42
You're in your element today. Your feelings run strong, deep and true, and your intuition is especially pronounced. If you have psychic tendencies, they're powerful now. But even a heightened sense of emotion can help you connect with yourself, other people, and whatever you hold sacred. This is the kind of day when you might be overcome with an intense sense of thankfulness for all your experiences, both positive and painful.

Sagittarius


sun_in_sagittarius_52
A sense of sympathy for your fellow human beings swells within you today. This could push you to make gestures or promises that are really beyond what you can do or afford. This is a wonderfully selfless impulse -- to give others anything and everything, even the shirt off your back. But you need that shirt! Try to find more sensible, realistic ways to be of assistance to someone who needs support.

Capricorn


Another Goat Shot
Careful -- your tender side is showing. Just kidding! Today's cosmic influence brings out the part of you that's as romantic and idealistic as the next person, and this is a wonderful thing. It may be a side of you that your friends and family don't glimpse very often. You may not usually allow yourself to be so impractical as to dream. But that's what today was made for -- letting your thoughts wander.

Aquarius


sun_in_aquarius_20
This could be a moody day. Your emotions are stronger than usual, or maybe they're just more noticeable. At any rate, it's harder to ignore them -- and that would be a disservice to yourself, anyway. Strong feelings might make you uncomfortable, especially if you can't put your finger on their source. But it's important to experience them anyway. Believe it or not, they enrich your life by increasing your empathy for others.

Pisces


sun_in_pisces_31
Your giving nature turns absolutely selfless under today's cosmic influence. Helping someone else infuses you with the most wonderful feeling. But wait -- you aren't indulging in a savior fantasy, are you? You're hardly the egotistical type, and yet, thinking you can save someone is one of the subtlest forms of egoism there is. Besides that, it's important to remember that you can't help anyone who refuses to help themselves.
