Overview

Today, the Moon is touring exuberant Sagittarius, forming trines to both Venus and Mars. This generates highly romantic energy. Flirting, going on a date or enjoying intimate moments with a partner are highly favored. Feel free to set work aside for the sake of fun. A love connection could be made at a dog park, book club or lecture.

In addition, the Moon forms a square to idealistic Neptune. Instead of putting a loved one on a pedestal, it's better to accept their shortcomings. Nobody is perfect. The most successful relationships are ones in which both people have realistic expectations of each other. Looking ahead, argumentative Mars squares forceful Pluto on Wednesday. An unwillingness to compromise could cause anger and resentment. It's better to meet people in the middle than insisting on doing things a certain way.

Aries


Feel that tingling in your veins? See that little extra shine lingering on everything you touch? It's nothing less than your zest for life, and it'll keep you alert and enterprising. Know which questions to ask and how to cash in on the answers right away. Visions will be hatched in the incubator of your dreams today, and they'll grow huge. Deals will be cut in corporate meeting rooms or down on the street. You could be in line for lots of new income or information now. Share all relevant data that passes through your hands.

Taurus


You look down on those who are too well put together. It's like they're trying to imitate catalog models. And when they actually succeed, that's when you really let them have it. So what's your issue with accepting the standards of fashion? Maybe the problem is that your own appearance is getting a little slovenly. Maybe you don't care at all, but on the other hand, maybe you care a lot. Don't deny what bothers you if you can fix it. Spend the day sprucing up. But make a point of looking like yourself, not someone else.

Gemini


It's OK to aspire. It's OK to set your heart on something and work out all the angles in advance. You deserve good things and personal greatness as much as anyone. Just use diplomacy to get where you're going. Others may already be on edge for reasons that have nothing to do with you. Don't go rolling over them now. Because if you don't push them over that edge, they might turn around and come after you. This sounds pretty hostile. So instead of starting trouble along the way, use your good will to get you where you're going.

Cancer


You're OK with the sound of your own voice. It's those other loudmouths who irritate you. Somewhere in the rules it says that only you get to speak up today. You're so weighed down with words that letting them out under these circumstances will seem reasonable. Well, everyone gets to have their opinion. But opinions won't count for much if you're running old software or operating on an outdated model. So think twice before you go around pulling the plug on others. Would you pack it in and go home if somebody told you to? Of course not.

Leo


Today you'll be ready for just about anything. You can hang loose while somehow staying perfectly composed. Does that sound impossible? You'll soon find out just how easy it is. Solve complex equations over the course of a friendly conversation. Crack impossible codes with a smile and a casual wave of the hand. There's no trick to any of this. It's just your skill set finally bearing fruit. Share what you have and show how it's done. Even if you give away your secrets, it's not like anyone else could actually compete with you in this area. They're welcome to try, though.

Virgo


OK, what's under your skin now? You're too twitchy to stand on ceremony, much less stand still for very long. You're not trying to be rude. It's just that something big, whether it's a childhood issue or a present day concern, will have your feet to the fire today. Well, that's better than letting the whole thing go to your head, isn't it? Remain upright no matter what. This may not be the most comfortable way to live, but as long as you have to force the situation, you might as well force it in the right direction.

Libra


Whatever shoes you wear, there's going to be a subtle bounce in your stride today. And you'll talk the talk as well as walking the walk. Be the moderator, mediator or go-between when other parties fail to understand each other, or refuse to even be in the same room. Sure, it's a community service for members who don't operate at your level, but you have your reasons for being so diplomatic. The right people will see those reasons and know what you're up to. And when that happens, you'll know you're getting somewhere.

Scorpio


Change is inherently funny, but you understand that better than most. You might get a kick out of watching everyone around you muddle through their mini-upheavals and other dramas today. Do your best to internalize your laughter. After all, some people -- okay, lots -- might not share your sense of humor about this strange, silly, all-too-human aspect of life. They might think your laughter is directed at them rather than at their situation, which will only hurt their feelings or put them on the defensive.

Sagittarius


Keep all your deals aboveboard. Acting kindly might not be a bad idea, either. Because who wants to get hauled before a judge or an ethics committee? OK, maybe that's extreme, but it's still a good idea to be strong and restrain yourself today. It'll be a lot harder avoiding the bad stuff than surrendering to temptation. But instead of dwelling on self-denial, think about the good behavior you're modeling. You have to admit that self-control looks pretty cool in an out-of-control world. And after you're out of the danger zone, you'll be free to cut loose again.

Capricorn


You're operating under the influence of some wild visions now. Maybe you've got an incredible idea for that project you've been managing at work. Perhaps you've been struck by a bolt of genius and you have something completely new in mind. For now, it's best to temper your wild visions with some common sense. Don't go rushing into something brand-new and untested. You're too cautious for that, anyway, and this just isn't the moment. Instead, preserve order and dignity for another day. That would be your own dignity, by the way.

Aquarius


Ready for a change? Hey, change is your middle name. So practice what you preach and stay adaptable today, or even longer if you like what's happening. It's OK to deviate from the pattern, no matter what the poll numbers or focus groups are saying. Most people only know what they can see, and they see where they're told to look. But your sharp eyes are all over the place. And right now the coolest opportunities are far off the beaten path. You'll know them when you get there, unless you find something even cooler first.

Pisces


The flesh is willing but the spirit is weak. Wait, shouldn't that be the other way around? You'd like to think you have only the best intentions, but in reality you might just be going with your animal programming. Expect to feel the pull of desire's abrupt demands today. It's OK if this makes you uneasy. That shows you're paying attention and that you know your individuality from your id. Or, if you don't want to get all Freudian about it, try separating who you are from what your body wants in the moment.

Overview

Adapting to new methods will cause your professional reputation to soar. Nobody likes to be jolted out of a familiar routine. A willingness to master the latest technological breakthroughs will make a good impression. The powers-that-be want workers who aren't afraid to grow and change. Err on the side of keeping current.

A neighbor or relative could call with surprising news. An unexpected turn of events may be cause for celebration. Put work aside for the sake of fun. Throwing a big party or enjoying a festive dinner will be a welcome change of pace. It's important to savor happy moments in life like these. On Thursday, analytic Mercury makes a sextile to cautious Saturn. Instead of rushing through work, take a slow and measured approach to chores. Have a detail-oriented person proofread any paperwork before it's officially submitted.

Aries


Live in the present today, which may sound kind of funny if you have to block it out on the calendar. Don't worry about that little paradox. Once you're in it, it'll make so much sense. Just keep that wild enthusiasm flowing, breathing in the inspiration of your perfect world. Whichever way you push, there's no resistance now. See how long you can make it work for you. Once you look back in amazement at how long this glorious chunk of 'now' has lasted, then that business with the calendar will start making sense.

Taurus


There are things you need and things you lust after. And right now, the focus seems to be on the things you can't have. As always, it comes down to a question of money, whether it's a personal budget or shared finances. So you should be considering the difference between thrifty and cheap. It's all about how you react to expensive circumstances. You could be wise or you could be mean. Which do you think makes more sense? Don't be small-minded about your goals. Review your saving graces today. You're actually rich in that way.

Gemini


Bulk up your lesson with better content, plus a ton of bells and whistles. Add value to your entertainment by making it more personal. Today is all about improvement and enlargement. Maybe it's your mission to leave a bigger footprint in the landscape, but there will almost certainly be consequences for this. These could happen in the natural world or in your community. Watch out for conflict. Some people might see your expansion as provocation. Be tolerant of their boundaries, even if your way is obviously better. If they don't agree, go around them instead of through them.

Cancer


Maybe you spoke out for the wrong reason and called their attention to something embarrassing. Maybe you grabbed what was costly or shiny while letting what was really valuable slip away. Whatever you did without thinking or caring, your own irresponsible actions could be making you uptight. Who is this saboteur knocking down everything you worked so hard to build? For a day or two it's as if you don't even know yourself. If you hope to make peace between these warring internal factions, it starts when they all sit down to talk.

Leo


Forget the begging and wheedling. You won't need that kid stuff any more. Your arguments are a lot more powerful than usual, and your methods are more subtle than anyone expects. Gently but irresistibly sway others to believe in your ideals. You'll be incredibly convincing today, thanks to the solid proofs you'll offer them, and to your future-forward attitude that could make a believer out of anyone. Just by telling the truth as you see it, you can build the biggest and best team yet. These people will take what you give them and run with it.

Virgo


Soften that harsh, uncaring attitude. Be ready to pay the price of tolerance, though. Because if you can listen, you can be swayed. This could mean surrendering the battle that's taken up so much of your energy in the last weeks or months. Maybe it would mean eating your words or drinking the Kool-Aid. But you know what? Everyone gets to be wrong sometimes, and everyone gets the opportunity to change. So maybe it's time to step over your hard line. Rethink your loyalties. Treat yourself to a fresh perspective.

Libra


Maybe you'll look, but you don't feel like you have to touch, at least not yet. You're breezy and hands-off. You're happy to sing that airy, distant melody from somewhere outside the spotlight, in the wings, or even from a different building. You're not about to get in anybody's face, but you wouldn't have a problem if they came looking for you. It's intentional yet effortless, a sincere belief in pacifism mixed with the ease of not wanting to bother. If you're this cool for one more day, you're sure to impress someone important.

Scorpio


Now more than ever, there's no need to be impatient or suspicious. The world is a friendly place, which you'd realize if you just lower your guard for a moment. Most of the people around you are in a pretty good, happy-go-lucky mood. You could join in the fun if you'd just relax a little. Of course, you've never been much of a joiner, which is an important part of your charm. Try a new twist today. There's such a thing as creating your own destiny, you know. Surely you don't want that kind of drama.

Sagittarius


You were in a slump for a while. Now you have a chance to become your dynamic self again. Remember how this works? It's about taking personal chances. Be candid with your truths even if some people don't want to know. Be generous with your abundance, reaching out to the people who usually get left out instead. For today you can give without fear of losing. Sure, your supply might dwindle down to nothing, but you'll feel better knowing it's for a good cause. And you'll always get back what you need as long as you keep the faith.

Capricorn


Clearly you're excellent. You always have been -- and you've always wanted people to know it, especially the people you'd really like to impress. But for today, most of those very same people would prefer simple competence over anything so flashy as excellence. The thing that will impress them most at the moment is simple hard work, and the ability to finish a project well. Try not to let your vitality outshine everyone else's combined light. And don't worry: You'll have plenty more opportunities to excel.

Aquarius


Free yourself from needless duties. Dump those stacks of old junk mail that you're never going to open. Cut away the excess to shed some light on the deep sincerity that's still at the core of all your choices. That ought to improve your mood today, don't you think? You've been stuck under that dark cloud of yours for too long. Maybe you'll never want to return from this brighter perspective. Don't worry about people calling you a foolish optimist. As an optimist, you're a lot easier to be around.

Pisces


You thought you had the answer. You thought a lot of other things, too. But today, educated guesses will solidify into hard reasons. Once you see these facts staring you in the face, you'll also see how much more there is to do, and you might feel ready to surrender. Don't give up yet. What's visible now is all part of the plan, and you still have options. But you need to stay strong and be careful about what you choose. Work within your safety margin. There's too much at stake.

Overview

Today, clever Mercury forms a supportive trine to wise Jupiter. Absorbing complicated concepts and vast quantities of information is possible. A concept that has been difficult to grasp may suddenly seem elementary. Take this opportunity to expand knowledge and demonstrate proficiency. Travel is also favored.

Whether it's a short trip or overseas journey is immaterial. Getting a change of scenery will be inspiring. Finding work in a foreign country is a strong possibility. Think about teaching English abroad; this is a great way to see the world while getting paid to do so. Armchair travel will also be pleasant. Watch a movie set in an exotic locale. Looking ahead, the humane Aquarius Moon will make sextiles to both Venus and Mars on Friday. Anyone looking for love could find it while working for a good cause. People in romantic relationships can strengthen their mutual affection by working together on philanthropic efforts.

Aries


You just want to take care of your own business today. That's reasonable enough. So why are they always getting in your face, going behind your back, or just making your life difficult through their very existence? Have more sympathy for the people who irritate you. They have their reasons for behaving that way. Or maybe they're just being themselves and you need to look at your own buttons. Whoever's at fault, though, give everyone the day to make their case. You could all learn something from this.

Taurus


Lots of people are depending on your kind heart and you won't let them down. Today, you're in touch with an inner sense of peace and love, and you're willing to put hard effort into the most important projects on your agenda. Keeping all those balls in the air shouldn't be difficult, because you're powered by a genuine sense of caring. Focus on one or two short-term goals you'd like to achieve, and at least one long-term aim. That enables you to take deliberate steps toward accomplishing great things.

Gemini


Your mood is off today, but is that any reason to cause problems for everyone else? Sullen protests and sarcastic proposals aren't welcome. Try hard not to make an issue of yourself or draw others' disapproval, especially at work. Instead, focus on ways you can be part of the solution. Soothe and distract yourself with information gathering or another task you're good at and can enjoy. That way, you won't give anyone reason to complain about your behavior or performance or your contribution to the greater good.

Cancer


This is a good time to initiate a new business, as long as you exercise caution. You'll impress people with your hard work, but you might also come up against opposition, especially if you think you know exactly what your partner or customer wants. Ah, well; don't let this tide of intense energy sweep you away. Instead, wade carefully and keep your eyes on a fixed point on the horizon. Things will get easier very soon, at which point all the work you accomplished during this brief period will bear fruit.

Leo


You're in a somber mood today. You seem to prefer a dark style, and it could affect your mood. Maybe the dark mood came first, and the somber attitude followed. Regardless, you don't have to live in humorless drudgery. Brightening your appearance is an easy and effective way to brighten your outlook. Put on something colorful and go for a walk out in the sunlight. If the weather's bad, make some hot cocoa and cuddle up with a good book or someone special. You'll blast through this melancholy yet.

Virgo


This day is all about using your naturally keen perspective to your best advantage. You're feeling grounded and focused, and you know which goals you want to reach first. Best of all, you're practical enough to stand back and observe what's going on around you, rather than jumping into the fray without a plan. Use that skill. Think through your options, be discerning in your choices and don't settle for anything less than your best effort. Like the best, you make all this look easy, which is a big part of your ultimate success.

Libra


The world may or may not revolve around you. The evidence on that one could go either way. But one thing is clear. You will affect the space around you, and you won't be making any friends if you're sharp, angry or resentful. Your complaints may be totally valid, but don't go around beating others over the head with them. Instead, you might want to spend the day mending fences or even tearing down useless walls. Old grievances will hurt less once you restructure things.

Scorpio


Yeah, okay, sure, whatever. Don't they have anything better to do than drone endlessly in your ear? Hey, your frustration may be understandable, but you have to stay politely attentive. Instead of trying to shut them up or confuse them with roundabout answers, direct your zealous efforts where they'll be appreciated. Sure, you'd like to be an equal partner in this debate, but maybe that's not your purpose here. Use your good judgment about what your purpose actually is. Maybe there's money involved? Serve others for today, and they'll pay you well.

Sagittarius


Everyone's cooling their heels, offering outspoken types the perfect opportunity to learn some patience. Are you among that group? If so, you could be in for a trying, humorous and ultimately enlightening couple of days. Keep your sense of humor about you as you work at the steady, diligent pace the universe seems to insist upon. This isn't so bad. You could cross several items off your to-do list if you apply yourself in the right way. Remember that all-important lesson: Sharing works both ways.

Capricorn


Don't waste too much time looking for that foolproof program to build wealth. It's actually very simple: Goal-oriented people attain their goals. End of story, or in this case, just the beginning. Commit to some kind of system and engage your energies right now. Lay a solid foundation for what you intend to build. Look as if you mean business -- and actually believe it yourself. Power is sexy, by the way, just in case that little byproduct of your efforts matters to you. Who knew you'd become such a love magnet by just going for what you want?

Aquarius


If you want to explore today, don't let your curiosity take you too far from home. It's better to stay where you're well-established. For one thing, there's nothing you have to prove here. If you venture out into the wide world, you might run into a stranger who challenges you to show off your brilliant mind. Expending your energy that way would be a waste of time. You've already got projects underway that need your attention, and friends and family who could use some time with you.

Pisces


Forget about the usual performance anxiety. Lose all those self-worth issues once and for all, OK? Just chill out and wait with total confidence for something to happen. That's coming soon if you're clear about making your services available to the highest bidder. Once they take the bait, it'll be a smooth run from beginning to end. You'll work hard today to fulfill their vision. Then it'll be all about you again, but this time you'll be able to afford whatever it's going to cost you.
