Overview

Today's Mercury-Pluto conjunction highlights how powerful words can be - for both good and for ill. The cardinal signs, Aries, Capricorn, Libra and Cancer, understand better than most how to use language wisely - today it's essential for all of us to think about what we're saying or writing before we let rip. Once said, or once the message is sent, you cannot take it back. Pay extra attention before it's too late. Looking ahead, Tuesday is a red-letter day for the romantics among us;

a beautiful Jupiter-Venus conjunction is all about love and kindness.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


An ethical issue comes up and everyone's trying to figure it out. They'd do well to listen to your perspective on the matter, because for you, it's more than just an intellectual game. You want to do what's right, and since you're well-aligned at the moment, you're sure to figure out the answer. Keep up this thought process, and you'll have to prepare for success -- and lots of admiration from your peers.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


This is a good day for getting some exercise. Anything that improves your balance, strength and reflexes is good, because you want to be ready when life gets exciting -- which could happen soon! For now, things are generally slow-paced and routine. Hit the gym or the trail, and bring a friend if you can. It's more fun to work out when you have good conversation to distract you.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


There are times when you feel scattered and unfocused, but at the moment, you're actually pretty clear on what you want to achieve. Don't waste this day thinking you can't do it. Instead, remind yourself that you know all you need to know. Now is your chance to trust your gut to push you in the right direction. It's time to get going on a project or a relationship, and you can do that by taking direct action.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Conversations flow today, with friends and strangers alike. You're tuned in to interesting facts and figures, so you might discuss the morning paper over breakfast with a friend, or chat via email about the latest online headlines. Ultimately, these tidbits may not be all that important; they could be the equivalent of a crossword puzzle -- little more than an interesting distraction. But at least you're engaged in the world around you. That counts for a lot.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


If you've spent a little too much time in your head lately, you're about to get the break you need. Today, be completely in your body. Enjoy being human. You're lithe and playful, whatever your shape and age, so get outside and stretch your muscles. Time spent with friends is also especially enjoyable so why not combine the two? Ask a pal to go jogging, or just visit with a few of your favorite people over dinner. It feels good to reconnect.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


You're being a bit shifty, aren't you? You insist on quality, and yet you keep rejecting perfectly good offers. Maybe you're in need of an attitude shift or a change in perspective. Stop and remind yourself how lucky you are. Even if you're not in the right frame of mind to appreciate this basic truth, try not to generate any crises at work or among your friends today. When you get down to it, there's just no need.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Feeling chatty, are you? Sure, you'll be verbal today, but there's no edge or angle to your patter. It's more like peacefully shooting the breeze. You can tell people about your life and ask them to relate their own stories. Maybe you'll come across someone who sparks an important idea, or simply end up with a new friend or two. But these good things will happen only if you pursue them, so be sure to reach out to other people now.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Well, you're in a rather sarcastic mood today, aren't you? It's a downer for the people around you. Surely you don't want to ruin someone else's good mood. Instead, strive for the kinder, gentler path. Being compassionate and accepting will make you feel good about yourself, whereas being grouchy or overly sensitive will only make you feel worse. Act like a friend, and you just might start feeling like one.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


You're operating off pure emotion now, like a pinball bouncing around inside its machine. Things people say to you today -- even their unconscious facial expressions -- could set you off emotionally. Instead of reacting without thinking, try to focus your self-awareness. Venture deeply into your own suppressed reasoning and desires. This careful introspection might make you nervous, or it might seem like a waste of time. But it will help you create positive change in your life.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Be sure to express your true, honest thoughts and your original ideas today, even if doing so feels uncomfortable. At least it's real, which the people around you will appreciate, whether they agree with you or not. And you'll almost certainly feel cleansed once you get these thoughts out of your head and onto the table. How else can you determine which ones are viable? Bottling them inside will only make them stale, leaving you with a noticeable lack of energy.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Outwardly, you're graceful, refined, even demure -- at least, that's how other people perceive you now. They may not realize you're currently having a surge of inner strength, which enables you to move ahead in your work or an important relationship with seeming ease. This is a great time for connecting with as many people as you can. Contacts made now are sure to come into positive play later, so bring along your address book.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Lots of little things are conspiring to get under your skin today. If you find yourself more irritable than usual, stop making so much of peripheral issues. After all, it's not the guy who cut you off that's the root of the problem, any more than it's the slow lady in front of you at the grocery store checkout. And what's the point in being a martyr for a useless cause, anyway? Try putting your attention toward something more meaningful.

Overview

Surround yourself with family and loved ones today and bask in the warmth of the Cancer Moon. This is a feel-good day and also an interesting one for investigating your family history or for paying a visit to a childhood haunt. The past is tangible in some way now, but fortunately most of the memories evoked are good ones. Make new memories with your kids and your loved ones, and keep traditions going. Looking ahead, there's a burst of originality and inventiveness on Wednesday, when Mercury enters innovative Aquarius.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Tension, restlessness and nerves could get the better of you today, if you let them. Just remember that you don't have to give in to gloomy, discouraged thoughts. With some careful focus, you could even harness this tricky energy to get something accomplished. Be sure to hit the gym or the trail, even just for a short, quick workout. Working up a sweat will help you keep your temper under control.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


The hustle and bustle of the daily grind doesn't appeal to you today. Thank goodness it's a slow-paced day, so you can be as sedate as you want, whether you're at work or at home. Enjoy your loved ones and your private time. A good movie on DVD, some popcorn or a few chocolates, and a friend or your sweetheart lounging on the couch by your side -- now, that sounds like a fun afternoon.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Feelings you didn't know you had are stirred up today. At least any emotional disturbances won't last long, and while they're here, you may find them interesting. Write down your thoughts and perceptions in your journal, so you can reread them later. If you're creatively inclined, you could make a collage that taps into your subconscious mind. Just don't give in to a morose mood. Moping around is so not your style.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


The past reemerges in some way today. Maybe you're just feeling sentimental. If so, it's a good day to look through old letters or photo albums. If your nostalgia is sweet, then enjoy it. But if it makes you melancholy, turn your focus firmly toward the present. Today marks the start of a new personal cycle for you, so resolve to move forward in your life. It's a whole new day.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Emotions swamp you today. You're always devoted to the people you love, but now that feeling swells tenfold. Your family seems especially dear to you, and being at home has never felt more comfortable or secure. Even if you have to work, spend some time on the couch or in the kitchen, or call an old, dear friend and catch up on what's been happening in both your lives.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


You're quietly, calmly invigorated today, which is perfect for tending to matters at home or reconnecting with good friends. You can get a lot accomplished in these personal realms, especially if you stay on task. Here's a prediction: In just a day or two, your house will be cleaner, you'll have reached out to a loved one over the phone or in person, and you'll be feeling pretty good about your life.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


A sentimental, self-indulgent mood settles in. You may be tempted to worship at the altar of your kitchen -- cakes, cookies and ice cream, oh, my! And a certain amount of indulgence is certainly in order on a quiet afternoon at home. Just make sure you aren't eating extra calories to fill an emotional void. If there are feelings in your heart that need addressing, air them in your journal or with a friend.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Privacy matters a great deal to you in general, and today it's paramount to your sense of comfort. Thank goodness it's a good day for holding the world at arm's length and holing up at home. You feel serene and in touch with your emotional center, ready and willing to protect yourself and anyone else you love. Spend the day fortifying your connection with yourself or a treasured friend.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


If you're still feeling a little cranky today, keep on waiting out this mood as gracefully as possible. Get some gentle exercise to help burn off some of the tension. At home, keep your snacking to a minimum, because the tendency runs strong now to solve emotional issues with flavors and textures. Of course, there's nothing wrong with indulging in a scented bubble bath or a luxurious nap. These could help you stay centered.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Recent changes are throwing you off today, but try not to let them bother you so much. Play it safe until you know a little more about what's going on. Caution is almost always better than getting critical and upset. Honesty is a good approach, too, especially if you're feeling insecure. It's hard for you to open up about your feelings of vulnerability, but doing just that will have the best results now.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Defensiveness sneaks into your interactions today, making them more unpleasant than they need to be. If you stop and think about it, you'll realize there's nothing to protect yourself against. Your life is going pretty well, and you have good friends and a support system in place to help you through the rough spots. Focus on these positives instead of any negatives you may be experiencing. You'll get through this with flying colors.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Energy infuses you today. You're tuned in to life itself, and you're ready to improve things for everyone by offering your heart, mind and spirit in service to the universe. Perhaps you'll resolve to be more active in your local community group, or to do more for your family. Best of all, any actions along these lines provide a great example for the other people in your life. They can learn from watching you.

Overview

How much do you trust your loved ones? Your friends? Your enemies? Today, expect to have your faith in people tested during the Lunar Eclipse - but the good news is that the huge majority of people will not let you down. Maybe it's time to be a little less suspicious, especially if you're a Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.

Loosen your hold on loved ones too and allow them to make their own mistakes. Looking ahead, Thursday is set to be an emotional day, but by confronting fears or trauma you can start to heal.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


All those emotions churning inside you need an outlet -- but lashing out at someone is not the best idea. A much better, more proactive way to contain the flood of feeling that rages within you is also a simple one: Get some exercise. Go jogging. Do some gardening. Aim some kicks at the heavy bag at the gym. Do some pushups. Anything vigorously physical will blunt the edge of the strong emotions that course through you today.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Your family and friends are very important to you, and today you're extra aware of that fact. If you could reach out and envelop everyone you love in a big hug, you would. But some of your dear ones are far away, so send them an email or a nice note to let them know you're thinking of them. Invite the ones who are nearby over for dinner. Make a feast that everyone can enjoy.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Feelings you've been trying to ignore -- or maybe ones you didn't even realize you had -- come to the surface today. Instead of your usual witty, laugh-a-minute persona, now you're emotional and introspective. It's okay if you want to stay home and keep your own counsel, but do record your feelings in your blog or journal. You'll want to go over them again later, when you can be more objective about them.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Your mood has gentled. Suddenly, you can see the past, present and future at once -- a continuous line of love and experience, people and events connected by feeling. Steep yourself in the past today, but only for a few moments. Your focus should be forward, toward your bright future. Today could be the start of an important, month-long project, if you turn your attention ahead of you.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


You wake up in a loving mood, in need of closeness and affection. Even if you have a lot of work to do today, be sure to spend some time with loved ones, too, because it's reassuring to know those connections are still strong. Of course, work makes you feel secure in a different way, and that's important now, too. Strike a balance between soothing your need for emotional connection and your need for financial stability.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Turn your discerning eye toward your home today. Get down-and-dirty about cleaning and making things more comfortable for yourself and your family. Wash the sheets and towels, scrub the floors and baseboards, dust the blinds and polish the windows. But don't spend the entire day doing (or supervising!) these tasks. Reserve some time in the evening to sit and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with all your hard work.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


You're in a sentimental mood. You want everyone you love to know how much you care for them. Old memories pull at you, and might even bring tears to your eyes. You're saturated in feeling -- waterlogged, even! Revel in this state, but try to avoid emotional eating or retail therapy. These are two of your favorite ways to avoid your feelings. Today, it's better just to face them, even if they're bittersweet.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


You may not admit it -- you can't stand admitting weaknesses, even to your closest friends -- but you're feeling vulnerable today. This might be a specific worry related to your work, your finances or your future, or it might be a general feeling of anxiety that casts a cloud over the whole day. Try to avoid emotional eating or lashing out at loved ones. Do some deep breathing and write in your journal.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


You've always been better with action than with words, and today you might put your foot in your mouth. You try to be honest, but it's hard to talk about your emotions, and sometimes you end up blaming someone else for something that's within your control. You also might indulge today in emotional eating -- trying to fill the void with food. At least this cloudy mood will pass soon.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


It's hard not to feel emotionally vulnerable today. Suddenly, you're extra aware of how precious your loved ones are, and how lucky you are to live such a comfortable, secure existence. And with that awareness comes the twin awareness that these blessings aren't permanent. Don't let that thought scare you, Capricorn. This is about learning to live in the moment, and being grateful for what you have and hold now.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Suddenly, your mood may be cloudy. You aren't comfortable feeling this emotional. It's as if your heart itself is heavy, water-logged with sentimental memories of the past and tricky, troublesome emotions. But maybe there's some part of your past or your emotional life that you need to face today. If you have unresolved feelings, face them now. If you keep bottling them up, you'll never release them.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


A sentimental mood washes over you. You feel deeply connected to every being around you, be they human, feline, canine or some other member of nature's kingdom. Reach out to the people and pets in your immediate sphere of influence -- your family and close friends -- and turn your nurturing energy toward them. One of them could probably use a good dose of your strength, kindness and caring.
