Overview

Crazy ideas could just work out today. The earth signs in particular - Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn - have something up their sleeves which sounds nuts, but might just surprise everyone. If you're facing a difficult problem at work, in your career, or at home, trust the energy provided by today's Moon-Uranus trine, and try something a little different. You know what doesn't work; set about finding what does.

Looking ahead, Thursday's slightly frustrating vibe is due to the Moon-Saturn square. Don't push too hard on an issue; instead, turn your attention elsewhere.

Aries


You shine under today's influence. Your energy is at its peak, which means your personal power is on high. If you have some personal mission you would like to advance, it's a great day for it. You can charm people into almost anything, through the sheer power of your personality. Just watch for other strong personalities. Going up against someone as dynamic as you could result in a clash of egos!

Taurus


You're in an attention-seeking mood today. There's nothing wrong with that -- lots of people crave the spotlight now. You're feeling clever and charismatic, and that's certainly a good thing. Just make sure you don't come across as smug, especially if you're trying to impress someone on a date or in a professional setting. Don't fall into thinking you have to boast about your accomplishments. Assume that your personality speaks for itself.

Gemini


You have a wonderful sense of your own talents and skills today. That translates into a self-confidence that's attractive to anyone and everyone around you. You may notice that you're suddenly the center of attention. At least, you seem to have more than a few admirers now! And since you're aware of your strengths, such as creativity and a quick wit, it's easy to play them up for your adoring audience.

Cancer


If you're in a romantic mood today, indulge it. Spend some one-on-one time with someone special, treat yourself to a romantic movie, or share a gourmet dinner with a friend. You tend to be careful with your money, but now it's not a bad idea to splurge on a meal or some other treat that will inspire a sense of luxury. Consider it a reward for all your hard work!

Leo


You're in a highly romantic mood today. If there's someone special in your life, you'll shower them with tokens of your affection. You've always been the demonstrative type! Even if you're on your own, you can indulge this mood in a variety of ways. Treat yourself and a friend to a nice meal, or watch a romantic comedy on TV. Read some love poems, or reminisce about an old, exciting love affair.

Virgo


Spend time in the company of friends today. Even if the group is more boisterous than you're used to, the vibrant energy is a lot of fun. In fact, if you're normally a reserved person, the current influence brings a great opportunity to break out of your shell and express your inner passion. Go for energetic activities, such as dancing or running after your laughing children.

Libra


Your creative talents are highlighted today. If you have some sort of presentation of your own work, whether it's artistic or professional in nature, it's sure to shine. It's hard not to notice the style and imagination that go into everything you do! It's possible that you'll receive some sort of formal recognition for your efforts under the current influence, or that you'll win a new admirer.

Scorpio


Warmth abounds under the current cosmic energy. If you have a hard time getting into the fun, romantic swing of things, it won't be for lack of passion. In fact, the problem might be a little too much passion! You're all fired up about something. The more worked up you feel, the more careful you'll have to be in how you express yourself. Try to temper your aggressive, possessive urges.

Sagittarius


Today brings a burst of energy and creativity. You're filled with the fire of imagination. Better yet, you possess the determination to see if your ideas will work in a real-world setting. Be bold, and use this visionary impulse to accomplish something great. You already know better than most that greatness is about believing in yourself, first and foremost. Confidence is its own kind of magic, and now you're a magician.

Capricorn


Someone in your life may need you to express your affection in a direct way today. But dramatic declarations of devotion may not come easily for you. You're naturally somewhat reserved; you probably feel your actions should speak for themselves. Still, don't resist the pull of passion. Giving in to this type of self-expression might be surprisingly liberating, while blowing off someone's need for appreciation could really upset them.

Aquarius


Today's cosmic influence is highly demonstrative and interactive in nature. A lot of people are having fun expressing passions of all kinds. But to you, this may look like a lot of needless drama. You might wish people would calm down and get sensible, already! But don't begrudge them their fun. Many folks need extra attention right now. In fact, you might feel the same need for the spotlight. You're only human!

Pisces


It's a good day to spend time with kids, because you're feeling especially youthful yourself. Or, let your own inner child out to play. You're in the mood for laughter and entertainment. You don't want to dwell on problems or responsibilities. You sense that, at least for today, life should be about pure fun. Pursue that goal with the enthusiasm of a child, and get as many other people involved in this movement as possible!

Overview

Think Occam's razor. If it waddles like a duck and bites your fingers off for bits of bread, it's a duck. Don't over-complicate things or over-think a problem. As Mercury opposes Jupiter, it's easy to get caught up in detail or to get distracted on a tangent. Clear your mind, especially if you're an earth sign - Virgo, Taurus or Capricorn - and focus on the facts.

The situation is actually very clear, if only you choose to see it that way. Looking ahead, give love a chance on Friday. A difficult Venus-Saturn opposition tests patience and tolerance, but it's worth finding a compromise.

Aries


Take a cautious approach to any new opportunities that arise today. This is working against type, of course -- normally, you follow your instincts, summon your courage and jump right in. Life is more of an adventure that way, right? But sometimes, like today, it's much more prudent to make plans and move forward with care. Scope out a new relationship or professional opportunity before you commit to it.

Taurus


You feel centered and grounded. It's easy to focus on whatever you have on your agenda for the day, because you don't feel pulled between conflicting needs. Whatever is on your to-do list is what needs to be done. You're able to view your tasks with a practical eye, which means that without much fuss, you can cut out any extra activities that aren't important. Have a lovely day, Taurus!

Gemini


You may not want to zero in on your work or to-do list today, but if you can make yourself do it, you'll enjoy a sense of calm. Otherwise, you're distracted and scatterbrained all day. It's hard to make a decision, because there are lots of variables and your sharp mind catches them all. If a truly important matter comes up, ask a grounded friend for their perspective.

Cancer


You may not be the boldest, most talkative or gregarious person today. Still, your best qualities are shining through -- your honesty, your loyalty and your dedication to the people and causes that matter to you. No matter what you have on your plate now, you'll handle it with ease. Business associates are impressed with your grounded energy, and your family feels comforted by your warmth.

Leo


Your vibrant personality is a bit subdued today as you tend to responsibilities at home or work. But it actually feels good to focus on taking care of business. You've always been family-oriented, and now you feel especially devoted to your loved ones. You're willing to do what it takes to make sure they're comfortable, safe and well fed. And organizing some area of your home or workspace actually feels cathartic.

Virgo


Your objectives for the future are clearer today than ever. You're focused on a long-term goal -- something that means a lot to you. This is a project which you can clearly envision and which you're willing to work toward carefully. Do some planning toward that end. Break things down into manageable steps. Determine what you can reasonably expect to accomplish within the next month, and start the process.

Libra


Draw on your innate sense of balance today to bring organization to some uneven area of your home, workspace or life. Clearing clutter from your house reinvigorates you, as if you've somehow cleansed your soul. Balancing your checkbook or your budget brings you a sense of inner calm. These tasks may be somewhat tedious, but you're sensible enough to know there's a time and a place for everything, Libra.

Scorpio


Life feels blessedly simple today. It's easy to manage the details of your life -- running errands, keeping track of your finances and staying on top of the other tasks that can sometimes be so trying. Now, everything runs smoothly, because your own energy is so even and grounded. You're okay with busy work, because it feels important to make sure everything in your life is balanced and stable.

Sagittarius


Ugh -- busy work! Tending to tedious details could take up the lion's share of your day, but the sooner you accept this, the more likely you are to tackle your to-do list with gusto and focus. If you struggle against the need to take care of details, they will just take longer. Look at it this way: You'll have to face these tedious tasks at some point. Why not do it now?

Capricorn


You're at your best today -- efficient, productive and focused on what's truly important. Your standards are high, but you're living up to them with ease, and probably surpassing them. Get ready to blow through all the tasks on your agenda with time to spare. Here's a bit of advice: Use any free time today to connect with your loved ones. Making sure they're safe and comfortable feels just as satisfying as hard work.

Aquarius


Something you're working on today could require a lot of extra time and attention as you work to sort out the details. It's a good day for research, so gather together all the variables and weigh them against each other. Just try not to let exasperation get the better of you. Sometimes, life can feel like two steps forward and one step back. Trust that you're getting somewhere, as long as you stay focused.

Pisces


It's important to be logical and practical today, and to operate from your head instead of your heart or from instinct. The problem with that, of course, is that it goes against your entire nature. Your feelings and your intuitions are what make you who you are. But sometimes, a rational perspective is best, even if it means you have to set aside your sense of compassion. Take care of business, Pisces.

Overview

Fancy a bit of skydiving? How about some extreme snowboarding? No? Scaling the outside of a skyscraper? Anyone?

Shame. Today's Sun-Mars trine is all about getting energetic and adventurous, and extreme sports is certainly one way of manifesting that. A safer option, especially if you're an air sign like Aquarius, Gemini or Libra, might be traveling to somewhere new, where fresh sights and sounds can invigorate and inspire you. Good luck! Looking ahead, don't rush into anything on Saturday. The Moon squares up to Mars, so impulsive, overly-emotional decisions are not a good idea.

Aries


Practical matters take center stage today. Your task list is long, and it's likely to include such exciting things as balancing your checkbook (yay!), cleaning the kitchen (your favorite!), or running errands (does life get any better than this?). Okay, so these aren't exactly your preferred activities. Still, sometimes you have to take care of business. The sooner you cross these things off your list, the sooner you can get back to the good life.

Taurus


Spend some time today getting your home or workspace in order. Perhaps there's an area that's been messy or disorganized for some time -- an overstuffed closet or desk drawer, the desktop of your computer or your financial files. It will feel especially good to impose some order on the situation. In fact, it's a great day for any activities that have to do with arranging, cataloging or creating a practical system.

Gemini


In conversations and email exchanges today, be sure you're focused on the right details. In any situation, look for the bottom line: what's most practical, basic and useful. Consider everything else fluff -- the stuff that doesn't need to concern you. It's important to keep that in mind today, because it's easy to get caught up in unimportant variables or concerns that don't really matter in the long run.

Cancer


Making sure your home and finances are in order brings you a sense of security today. You're working efficiently, staying on top of things, and that feels good. You know your loved ones can depend on you, as can your employer. Your thorough attention to detail is sure to bring you good things, even if just an inner sense of satisfaction. Taking care of things feels very good.

Leo


A sense of modesty sets in today. You still welcome approval and recognition from others, but perhaps for different reasons than usual: Now you want to be noticed for your hard work. You want someone to appreciate your commitment to detail. Don't worry -- you're putting in a strong effort, and people are sure to notice. You're so naturally artistic that it's hard not to notice the special flair you bring to even mundane tasks!

Virgo


You expect people to be reasonable today, and for life to make sense. And for the most part, your expectations should be satisfied. You'll take charge of any problem or challenge with calm grace. You make it look easy to deal with tough situations, but really, you simply trust yourself. You know you have the tools to handle anything that might come up, and that knowledge makes you serene.

Libra


You're especially observant today, and harmony in your relationships and surroundings is even more important to you than usual. If someone behaves in a rude or boisterous manner, you inwardly cringe. In fact, any type of social outburst runs against your preference for smooth, orderly interactions. Your mind is keen, so if you have any research or detail work to do, today is the day for it. Nothing escapes your notice.

Scorpio


Today, your innate loyalty and commitment are deeply felt and obvious to others. You don't have to make any splashy declarations of love. You let everyone know where your loyalties lie simply by being of service to the people you love. This can include your work, too. If you love what you do, you feel every bit as dedicated to it as you might to a member of your own family.

Sagittarius


Today, you feel constrained by the demands of logic. You're a philosopher and a seeker. You know the universe is a much broader, more varied place than conventional thinkers might believe. But there's a time and a place for cool, straightforward reason, too. Today is one of those days when you're better off being ruthlessly logical than whimsically creative. Rationality can open doors in ways you might never expect.

Capricorn


You're flexing your mental muscles today, proving to yourself and anyone who's paying attention how truly resourceful you can be. You're like a cerebral MacGyver, using whatever you have at hand to fulfill the needs of the moment. There's a great deal of creativity in this economy of movement and effort, Capricorn. You're living proof that being sensible and capable isn't boring in the least.

Aquarius


A logical perspective is good today, but try not to get locked into a rigid point of view. Sometimes you can be a bit stubborn in your thinking, especially if you've already decided you're right. And now, attempts at being rational could lead to narrow thinking if you aren't careful to keep your mind open. Keep gathering details and organizing them as you go along, but don't discount elements that don't seem to make sense.

Pisces


Everyone seems so cool-headed and rational today, and this is hard on you. Of course you understand the importance of logic, but how could reason ever trump feeling? For you, real truth lies in the subjective realm of emotion. Relying solely on logic only gives you half the picture. See if you can combine the two today. Look for patterns in your feelings that coordinate with what you know logically to be true.
