Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


    All aspects of communication take center stage today as messenger Mercury begins its three-week retrograde period. Although Mercury retrograde creates concern for many, there’s nothing negative about it as long as we pay attention to details before they become problematic. However, the impetuous Aries Moon tempts us to blast ahead before thinking things through. Meanwhile, a romantic Venus-Neptune trine entices us to believe our fantasies are true.

  • Aries
    Mar 21 - Apr 20

    You realize that your current work is not just about completing your chores today. It’s beginning to dawn on you that it’s going to be a while before you reach your current goals. Nevertheless, you’re committed to fulfilling your obligations, however long it might take. Make a list of everything you thought would be done by now but haven’t yet completed and set new milestones for the next few weeks. Motivational speaker Jim Rohn said, “If it’s important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.”

  • Taurus
    Apr 21 - May 21

    Your love life is driven by fantasy today, but reality may deal you a different hand. In fact, you could feel as if you’re stuck; you aren’t making any progress, yet you’re not unhappy enough to attempt an escape. You have a fun-filled agenda mapped out for the weekend, but people might bail on you at the last moment, leaving you to fend for yourself. Although you’re fully capable of going it alone, don’t make it a habit now. Stepping outside of yourself and being part of a community allows you to find the love you seek.

  • Gemini
    May 22 - Jun 22

    You are ready to explore new territory today, but prior commitments make it difficult to find the time for your adventure. You don’t believe that anyone is purposefully holding you back, yet you’re willing to justify your behavior anyhow. Ultimately, private discussions with a close family member or friend will offer you the motivation you need. Screenwriter Mario Puzo wrote, “The strength of a family is in its loyalty to each other.”

  • Cancer
    Jun23 - Jul 23

    You may revisit an unfinished conversation with a friend in order to clear up a lingering misunderstanding. At first, the tension increases as you talk, making you question the wisdom of your actions. Emotions can become heated because your perspectives are so different. In fact, winning an argument is an unrealistic goal today. However, acknowledging one another’s positions can be healing, even if resolution is elusive. The Dalai Lama said, “Compassion is the radicalism of our time.”

  • Leo
    Jul 24 - Aug 23

    You want to apply your quick thinking to invent new avenues of income. However, everything takes longer than it should today and you don’t understand the reason for all the delays. Instead of worrying about the timing, concentrate on the practicality of your plans. The more grounded your intellect, the sooner you can manifest the fruits of your labor. But don’t shy away from your intensity just to make others more comfortable. Your fiery passion is one of the main ingredients of your magic.

  • Virgo
    Aug 24 - Sep 23

    You might experience one annoying mix-up after another today, but nothing serious enough to stop you in your tracks. Your key planet Mercury turns retrograde in your sign, changing the rhythm of your conversations. You want to continue a discussion, but you’re at a loss for words. Don’t force any answers if nothing comes to mind. The flow will pick up again on its own accord, so be ready to ride the next wave when it hits. Mozart wrote, “The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.”

  • Libra
    Sep 24 - Oct 23

    You may be picking through the backwaters of your mind today in search of a lost idea or quote, but the more you look, the less you yield. You can’t find what you’re hunting for but neither can you set your quest aside. The subconscious has a magical way of adding meaning to whatever you perceive while clever Mercury retrogrades in your 12th House of Spirituality. There’s no reason to resist this inward journey but don’t rush it, either. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

  • Scorpio
    Oct 24 - Nov 22

    Try as you might, you can’t figure out your place in your network of friends now. One minute you feel like the ringleader of the pack, and the next minute you’re doubting the reasons for your participation. Thankfully, you can ground yourself today by following through on what you already started, stabilizing your role in the community. Trust your dreams, but don’t let them grow larger than life. Author Ashleigh Brilliant wrote, “Nothing we do can change the past, but everything we do changes the future.”

  • Sagittarius
    Nov 23 - Dec 21

    Your mind is on the long-term trajectory of your career and you wonder why your progress seems to be stymied now. You might feel frustrated if your ambitious strategy isn’t creating the forward movement you expected. Nevertheless, this is not a smart time to walk away from your current plans. Make another attempt and fiercely focus on accomplishing your goals. Psychologist B.F. Skinner wrote, “A failure is not always a mistake. It may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.”

  • Capricorn
    Dec 22 - Jan 20

    You have recently stretched the envelope in new and daring ways. But you don’t want to take the time to explain your thought process to others. In fact, you may have left out quite a bit of the story, for the step-by-step details are not within your grasp today. Don’t get sidetracked by the minor obstacles that crop up now; plan on working out the rest of the plot as you continue on your way. Poet Mary Oliver wrote, “Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.”

  • Aquarius
    Jan 21 - Feb 19

    You are turning into an investigator now and will continue to dig into the unknown until you have all the facts. However, you may be facing stiff resistance as you bump into someone who is opposing your progress. Don’t get caught up in petty ego battles; confrontation is not the highest use of your current passion. The more information you gather and the more experience you accumulate, the better decisions you will make. Wisdom is the ability to learn from change.

  • Pisces
    Feb 20 - Mar 20

    People may mislead you today, but they aren’t doing it on purpose. Mercury’s retrograde turn in your 7th House of Others can add confusion to a relationship because you’re likely to misunderstand one another. Fortunately, this is not rocket science; listen carefully and ask plenty of questions if you are unsure of what you heard. George Bernard Shaw wrote, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
