The willful Sun opposes restrictive Saturn today. It may not be easy to fulfill personal desires. Responsibility trumps fun, particularly for Gemini and Sagittarius. Postpone an enjoyable outing in order to meet an impending deadline. If that means putting in overtime, so be it. This is not a good time to disappoint clients and customers. Resist the urge to get into power struggles. It may be impossible to defeat an authority figure that has a great deal of resources at their disposal. Keep quiet about complaints and continue to do as expected. Following orders is annoying, but it's essential to getting ahead.
Looking ahead, vain Venus will make a square to rebellious Uranus. Romantic delusions could cause considerable heartache. Confrontational Mars will also form a square to deceptive Neptune, revealing an upsetting betrayal.
Nobody understands you. No one cuts you any slack. Therefore, you don't need them. Hey, wait just a minute. You have some nerve keeping loved ones at a distance. They want to help you with your problems and share their happiness with you. Are you trying to break their hearts? Of course not. You probably just didn't realize how difficult you were being. Hello, you're being difficult. You can change that ASAP. Open your door and arms today. It's the best apology you can offer, and it's the one they'll accept without question.
Sometimes you amaze yourself. Sometimes one little thing makes a critical difference. One hand washes the other, poetic justice rhymes like a Shakespeare sonnet, Paul returns all those stolen goods to Peter, and pigs actually seem to fly. You don't have to make excuses or adjustments when an elegant solution is also a comfortable fit. How convenient is that? You're doing so well that it's almost too good to be true. But don't jinx yourself by pretending to be unworthy. You just lucked into the right time and place of a massively complex event.
The bigger endeavors in your life are on hold for the moment, and there's a good reason. Don't try to push through on a project for work or school, or a new relationship. Instead, try to enjoy just floating along. You're ordinarily so restless -- can you handle a few days of small potatoes and interior views? Try to be patient, Gemini
. If you're calm and observant, you'll learn a lot about why life sometimes imposes downtime, just when things are starting to get interesting.
Balance your wild impulses and your wise intuitions. If you let your emotions rise to the surface, prepare to be in control over when, where and how those bubbles burst open. Part of this is about wanting to feel safe, but another part is about making yourself a useful part of something bigger. And if you want, you could even run the whole show today. As long as everybody understands that you're not on a joyride or power trip, they'll happily pay more attention to all the good stuff you have to offer.
You're a tenacious friend and a doting loved one. Are these bad things? Absolutely not! Celebrate your belonging by throwing a dinner party or hosting movie night for the people you love best. The emphasis should be on fun, comfort, and intimacy. In a few days, you can go out and have a real life. For now, your focus should be on building up your interior world -- the world of family, emotions, and tending to your urge for security.
Well, aren't you a discriminating consumer? You know what you like, where to get it, and how much of it to use. Because, after all, this stuff isn't cheap, and it might be hard to come by. For a few days you should be taking an active interest in the supply chain. Keep those goods and services flowing whether you're buying, selling or producing them. Do your part to keep everyone else confident in the system, since it's the best way to guarantee that things will keep running smoothly. It's citizenship in action. Congratulations for learning the lesson.
It wasn't a rendezvous with destiny, more like a blind date with possibility, but maybe you're a bit too prickly right now to keep that tentative appointment. It happens. Send your regrets and take the day off. If you miss that train, another one will be coming sooner or later. Meanwhile, take deep breaths to fill up your emptiness. Remember how to smile. You're not exactly dropping out of the race, but you do need to rehumanize yourself before going on. They'll all love you again once you're attitude- and illusion-free.
At the moment, your emotional depths know no bounds. You're a natural and elemental force, like a wind that can blow both soft and strong. You're gentle-hearted and vulnerable even as you're powerful and incisive. That means you could stand up to an enemy as easily as you can reach out and console a friend who's feeling a little down. You just might gain a secret admirer today -- that's how compelling and mysterious you are, Scorpio
. When it comes down to it, anything is possible!
Be careful how you speak to people today, especially those important to you, like loved ones or your boss. You don't want to burn any bridges just because you're in an uneasy mood. Avoid hurting others' feelings or annoying them with short, shallow responses. That'll only slam the door shut on any chance for a meaningful conversation. Speak up, of course, if you have good reason. Staying silent in the face of injustice would be unbearable. Just choose your words carefully, and store away your passion for later.
It's always been easier for you to focus on the bottom line -- cost, efficiency, and goals -- than on feelings -- yours or anyone else's. But today highlights internal, subjective concerns, such as your home life, your family, the devotion you're giving out, and the love you're taking in. Maybe you feel that going deeply into these issues costs too much. In that case, keep your head up and your heart carefully guarded, if you can. But chances are, you can't -- real feelings are sure to seep in. If so, pay attention, and make any necessary adjustments.
It's a good thing you enjoy working on creative solutions to problems. Today brings a troubled feeling to your life, as if you're working against yourself in some way without even realizing it. You're wrapped up in your own paradox, but maybe that's okay. Pay attention to what you think and how you feel. Your perceptions are a little off, but they also hold clues to the answers you seek. Enlightenment could be right around the corner -- you just have to be tuned in and sharp enough to recognize it when it comes along.
Your heart has blossomed overnight, like a gorgeous, night-blooming flower. You're filled with wonder and delight at the world around you, which seems to brim with the life force. You're in tune with your own soul, connected to the universe at large, so you bring intuitive insight to any conversation. In fact, you might enlighten your friends, your family, your coworkers -- even the mail carrier or the guy next to you in the checkout line. Who knows where this comes from? It just feels right.

The affectionate Leo Moon will make supportive angles to Mercury, Mars and Jupiter today. This is a perfect opportunity to throw a party. Everyone may have a wonderful time and a few romances may burst into flower, too. Invite an interesting mix of friends, family and neighbors. Physical activity can be refreshing and energizing. Playing sports or going to the gym can make the eyes sparkle and the skin glow in a very attractive way. Taking up a new activity can be lots of fun. Instead of looking at exercise like a chore, treat it as a way to escape work and personal responsibility.
Looking ahead, the attentive Virgo Moon will make supportive angles to both loving Venus and passionate Pluto. This may be a wonderful time to embark on a love affair or enjoy a romantic interlude.
If you want to be the center of attention today, you probably can be. The current energy spotlights your talents and considerable charisma. Everywhere you go, you're turning heads! It's a great time for social get-togethers, because you're in the mood to swap stories and laughter with friends. It's also a good day to spend time with children, because they bring out your own youthful energy.
A warm, playful energy infuses life today. You may be able to tap into this, but you also might get sucked into some sort of power struggle. It could be hard to avoid drama now, especially since your stubborn streak is stimulated by the current cosmic energy. If you sense opposition
from someone, you'll probably rise to the perceived challenge, though it would be better simply to let the tension roll off your back.
Welcome to a boisterous, playful day. Your favorite kind of energy is at work, and your inner child wants to come out and play! Speaking of children, it's a great day to spend time with kids, whose high spirits are infectious. Crowds, games and parties are also good options now. You'll enjoy any lively, noisy venue that allows you to connect with your fellow humans and share a few laughs.
You may get swept up in someone's theatrics today. The current energy certainly lends itself to interpersonal drama, since most people are feeling more passionate than usual. Even romantic passion can quickly turn into hurt feelings and misunderstandings. This is easily avoided, however, simply by tapping into the affectionate side of this influence. Let your loved ones know how much you appreciate them, and accept their gestures of devotion as well.
Today it's especially important that you believe in yourself. If you rely too much on others' support or approval to bolster your courage, you're risking a fall if that support doesn't appear. But if you can develop your own inner source of bravery, you'll always have that as a powerful core of strength from which you can draw, no matter the circumstance. Set that as your goal, and strive to reach it.
Dramatic scenes are possible today at work or among your friends. Passions are running high, which can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the situation and the reactions of the people involved. You're likely to keep a cool head no matter what develops. That's just the kind of practical person you are. You prefer to keep your head down and stay out of the fray!
Get ready for good times with fun people. You're feeling playful today, youthful at heart, no matter your age. Romance could be on the horizon, or, simply, a rosy, affectionate mood. It's easy to appreciate this side of life when you're feeling so warmhearted and optimistic. Your inner passion comes to the fore, making you feel more attractive and self-confident. In that state of mind, there's no telling what might develop!
Today's influence stirs people's need for attention and recognition. You know you're an interesting, talented, complex person, and you want others to recognize that about you. At the moment, you won't react well to feeling ignored or neglected. That's understandable, but it's best to find a productive way to make your feelings known. Avoid passive-aggressive behaviors. Your needs are more likely to be met if you're honest yet gentle about them.
You're quite the charmer today. The current cosmic influence makes you extra passionate and dynamic. This is no time to spend time alone if you don't have to, because your best moments will be in the company of friends. There's something about a warm, noisy group of people that really brings out your personal power. You know exactly how to play to the crowd, by feeding off the energy of their appreciation.
Your expensive tastes are stirred up today. This relates to the small, perhaps carefully hidden part of you that believes you're only as lovable as your accomplishments and possessions. The urge to splurge on some expensive status symbol comes from those inner feelings of vulnerability -- that deep-down anxiety everyone shares about being loved for who we are. Believe that you're loved, Capricorn
, because you are, truly.
Your creativity is strong today, but so is your stubborn streak. You may be called on to sell your ideas in some way, perhaps at a business event or meeting. If so, don't be afraid to use your personal charisma in drawing people into your corner. The very idea may make you bristle, but networking is a cornerstone of the business world. And what better way to connect than through warmth and laughter?
You're in the mood for good times today. Being with friends is a real energy boost, especially if everyone is in fine spirits. But dramatic scenes are possible now, because many people's emotions are aroused. Feelings of vulnerability can lead to impassioned stances and fiery declarations. If you're involved in a conflict, or even just witness to one, try to keep a sense of perspective. Things will cool down soon.

The romantic Leo Moon makes a trine to electrifying Uranus today. Falling in love at first sight is a distinct possibility, especially for Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Committed relationships could benefit from a change of pace. Surprise gifts, impromptu outings or unexpected love letters can put the spark back into a predictable union. Unusual creative pursuits are also favored. Take this opportunity to blend two seemingly different mediums. Putting a modern spin on an old format could also be compelling. Develop a new style and refuse to get discouraged when the majority objects. A significant minority could embrace this refreshing perspective.
Looking ahead, inquisitive Mercury will make a conjunction to outgoing Mars. This could be a great time to launch a research project or test an intriguing theory.
Your personal power flares to life today. You can accomplish anything you dream, and you have the boldness to pursue the long shot. Don't let anyone limit your potential now -- not that you need the warning! Under the current cosmic influence, you'll blast through obstacles as if they're nothing at all. In fact, you may not see them as obstacles. Instead, you'll view them as welcome tests of your considerable prowess.
Today, you're enjoying being the center of attention in a group. And as long as you receive the attention you know you deserve, everything rolls along just fine. But if you start feeling ignored or as if your ideas are unfairly challenged, you might really bristle. Try to stay good-humored and humble. Getting into a squabble with someone probably isn't worth it, and it's certainly no fun for anyone.
Today, your creativity is enhanced by the cosmos. What's more, you're extra courageous, which opens plenty of paths in itself. You're willing to test out new ideas and see how they play out. You can exhibit a lot of innovation in your work, impressing a client or supervisor. All of this adds up to big, bold brain waves that have the potential to play out in some surprising ways.
Your personal talents are on display today. It feels wonderful to express yourself creatively, in whatever way that applies to your lifestyle and skills. Plus, you might receive some recognition for the work you do now. But if that well-deserved recognition doesn't come, don't let it affect your good mood. Just keep going, refining your work and making it more and more closely representative of your authentic self.
Your inner warmth and passion are vividly on display today. You're at your brightest, boldest best, as long as you're receiving plenty of positive feedback. But you would feel crushed if you went out on a limb to express your inner truth and no one responded as you'd hoped. If that happens, try not to let it affect you so deeply. Your inner power may be the slow-burning kind that takes time to manifest.
Today, your normally cool, calm energy heats up. You can't help but be affected by the current cosmic influence, which is quite passionate in nature. It's especially fun to indulge in a flirtation now, or express yourself through art or another creative act. This puts you in touch with the best parts of yourself, so you can take everything of value that you hold inside you and demonstrate it to the world.
You're quite spunky today, because you're in touch with your own personal power. Best of all, your charisma is the warm kind that invites other people in rather than holding them at arm's length. After all, you would prefer affection to awe just about any day! Enjoy the energized, connected feeling of togetherness that's available now as you spend time with your favorite people.
Today a big part of you wants to feel appreciated and respected. This might be an urge for professional recognition, but it's likely to stem from a more personal source. The current cosmic energy is the kind that stimulates your deepest feelings of insecurity. If some part of you feels inadequate, that might come up now. If so, face it, so that you can let it go. Remind yourself that you're loved by many.
You're on fire
today, in the best way! Your energy is sizzling, making you extra creative, not to mention full of personal appeal. At some point in the day, you'll probably find yourself surrounded by a group of friends and admirers. Hey, that's fine by you! You enjoy the buzz of energy that comes from a group of fun-loving folks. It stimulates your passion and boosts your innovative capacity.
Today your urge for public recognition intensifies. You may not even realize you're feeling such a need for attention; you might just catch yourself boasting about your accomplishments. You might also feel irritated if someone receives accolades you believe you deserve. Do your best to let others have their time in the spotlight. It's important to trust that your time will come, too, even if it doesn't happen to be today.
You may be in a situation today that requires charm and finesse. Any number of situations could trigger your performance anxiety, the part of you that gets nervous at the prospect of having to win people over. If that happens, have confidence in your ability to engage others. You're an interesting, unique and creative person with a lot to offer. Today it will all be on display, so show it off!
It's a great day to spend time with children. You're in the mood to play, and your inner child is easily accessible. Telling jokes or silly stories satisfies your funny bone. Perhaps most importantly, staying grounded in your sense of humor helps guard against any feelings of insecurity that would otherwise set in. The current influence could have you placing pressure on yourself to perform, but humor keeps things light.
