Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


    It may appear as if life is returning to normal, but it is not. Although it seems relatively quiet on the cosmic front, normalcy might only exist as a nostalgic memory of simpler times. Nevertheless, the discerning Virgo Moon sharpens our senses along with our logic. A creative Venus-Saturn connection urges us to turn a beautiful idea into a work of art. The Moon glides into graceful Libra at 9:04 pm EDT, inspiring us to express love over fear.

  • Gemini
    May 22 - Jun 22

    Someone may try to manipulate your behavior today, but you can easily dance around their attempts at controlling the dynamics. Being a non-conformist means you often must shrug off the complaints of others when they don’t understand your moods or your motives. Honestly, your loyalty to yourself comes first now. Nevertheless, expressing what’s in your heart is admirable, especially if you can do it without hurting anyone else’s feelings. Author Sebastyne Young wrote, “We all want to be extraordinary and we all just want to fit in. Unfortunately, extraordinary people rarely fit in.”

  • Leo
    Jul 24 - Aug 23

    There is so much going on in your world these days, yet there’s another whole layer of processing occurring out of sight. Karmic Saturn is stabilizing vulnerable Venus as she luxuriates in your 12th House of Soul Consciousness, requiring you to reexamine your emotional needs. Rather than directly searching for love and beauty, you’re more interested in understanding why you pursue some things and not others. Medieval philosopher Meister Eckhart wrote, “What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.”

  • Virgo
    Aug 24 - Sep 23

    Although you don’t want everyone to read you like an open book, it’s easier to hide what you do today than how you feel. For example, you might be able to get away with sneaky maneuvers, but people can instantly tell if you are frustrated -- even if you greet them with a smile. Since actions ultimately speak louder than words, all you need to do is make sure that your message is in alignment with your behavior now. Entrepreneur Christine Kane wrote, “Consistent action creates consistent results.”

    Friends and associates act as your personal radars today, picking up on your unspoken needs and offering you their support before you even had a chance to turn on your phone.

    More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Capricorn
    Dec 22 - Jan 20

    You realize you are blessed to feel nurtured by those who love you, yet there’s still some intangible element missing. It’s as if people support your professional ambitions because they see you moving along the path to success with drive and determination. However, there’s another softer dimension to you that is busy managing your spiritual goals and your emotional needs. You might feel this side goes unnoticed, but don’t be too quick to judge others for their omission if you are reticent about revealing personal information. Actor Leonard Nimoy said, “The more we share, the more we have.”

  • Aquarius
    Jan 21 - Feb 19

    You are content to fly beneath the radar today, because your happiness is based on individual aspirations rather than what others think. Sometimes you crave the adrenaline rush of working for a common cause or feel the need to assume leadership for a group project. But now you’re more interested in making progress toward your personal long-term goals than in winning a popularity contest. Psychiatrist Martha Friedman wrote, “Success based on anything but internal fulfillment is bound to be empty.”

  • Pisces
    Feb 20 - Mar 20

    Your coworkers appear to be operating with the upmost of efficiency today, prompting you to worry about what you can contribute to the project. In fact, you seem to come up short in several ways when you compare yourself to anyone else. You might even wonder if there’s something wrong with you because you often prefer dreaming about success rather than actually fighting for it. It’s time to cut yourself some slack; everyone brings different strengths to the table. Others count on you for your fertile imagination, your unwavering compassion and your profound intuition. Celebrate who you are instead of trying to be who you are not.
