Manifesting what we want might be easier than we think today, even as the fussy Moon in Virgo makes a square to flighty Mercury at 5:27 am EST. Obsessing over what is going wrong can drive away our desires, yet immersing ourselves in pleasures as simple as a delicious cup of coffee or sunlight moving through the trees could inspire us to make our dreams materialize. Once the Moon blissfully trines unpredictable Uranus this evening, our decision to feel good could deliver a delightful surprise.
Stubborn attitudes can get you in trouble at this time. The more flexible you are, the easier it will be to improve your finances as the Moon makes a beneficial trine to Uranus in your money sector. Even if you're an expert in your field, that doesn't mean you have nothing left to learn. Be open to working with someone who has a different perspective than you, even if they're new to the game. Their fresh ideas and modern methods could really polish up your knowledge base.
The prospect of getting revenge against a rival may be tempting right now. As the emotive Moon slams into a tough angle with petty Mercury in your 8th House of Passion, just thinking about someone who caused issues in your life could fill you with anger and resentment. It's totally understandable that you want to lash out at a person if they purposely hurt you, but rising above your fury will have more long-term benefits. Try to channel your powerful emotions into a personal project instead.
Misunderstandings abound due to the tense energy swirling around today, and it could be easy to take offense at a perfectly innocent remark. Make an effort to wait before responding to a comment that hurts your feelings. Being analytical or logical about emotions might really help you maintain necessary tactful silences throughout the day. In the evening, your patience may be rewarded with an opportunity at home to blow off any steam that built up during the day.
You may be drawn to dwell on your fears right now, but pleasant distractions can prove therapeutic. The last thing you want is to let anxiety compromise your health! Listening to relaxing music, meditating on something calming, or practicing deep breathing exercises helps keep dark thoughts at bay. When in doubt, remind yourself of everything that's already worked out for you. Positive expectations can pave the way to success -- and maybe even to some delightful spur-of-the-moment fun with a friend.
Fearful energy could make it difficult for you to take a risk today, even if you usually enjoy rolling the metaphorical dice, Leo. The prospect of losing what you have may be a bit unnerving, and it's OK to postpone any bold moves for another day when your natural courage returns. In fact, being cautious could pay off unexpectedly in the financial or professional arena, so it might turn out to be a good thing if you aren't blazing forward right now.
Conflicting energy at home could disrupt your groove, and it may be particularly difficult to meet an aggressive family member in the middle today. No matter how gracefully you try to avoid a sensitive topic, they might continue to harp on it! Keeping your distance may be the only way to avoid an argument -- but luckily, not everybody disagrees with your ideas. Someone whose opinion you respect could want to form an alliance with you, affirming you in a really valuable way.
Talking nonstop may be quite easy at the moment, but to make a good impression, try to practice discretion. Even if it feels counterintuitive, you'll probably be glad you held back when communicating with someone who's a tad judgmental. The less ammunition you give, the more difficult it will be for any naysayers to defame your character. Afterward, reward yourself for looking out for number-one by allowing yourself some luxury. A new accessory or a special treat could be just what you deserve!
Stressful energy surrounding money could be keeping you awake at night. If you want to cultivate a calmer emotional state, make an effort to focus on the prosperity you have in your life. Keep your mind on things that make you feel happy, including anything from food on the table to comfy pillows to loyal friends. It may even help to talk to or adopt the attitude of a friend who seems to have it all. Their confident mindset can help inspire your own faith in abundance!
Feelings may be running high because of the emotional Moon's tension with mental Mercury in your sign today. You may not approve of a higher-up's destabilizing outbursts, but while it's true this behavior can be upsetting, it can also lend insight to this leader's character. Knowing what motivates and angers them could actually improve your career prospects. If you've been thinking of asking for a raise or promotion, you would be wise to use whatever you learn today to your advantage.
While you might be feeling especially nostalgic today, fixating on the past won't solve anything. It's fine to look back fondly on old relationships, childhood memories, and bygone eras, but you should limit this reminiscing in favor of an opportunity to expand your future horizons. While the Moon forms a beneficial trine to progressive Uranus in your 9th House of Expansion, making a list of things in your life that you appreciate can cause those blessings to grow and multiply.
Today's tense energy could inhibit your plans, even if you usually enjoy whatever it is you're doing. The prospect of public speaking, in particular, might fill you with dread. If you must make a presentation, try to find ways to relax yourself beforehand, like breathing exercises or visualizations. Projecting an air of calm will likely make your audience receptive to whatever you say. Once you clear this hurdle, you'll be free to enjoy some domestic pleasures -- consider inviting friends over to share in your success.
Your desire to get ahead may be undermining an important relationship. While wanting to reach the top of the career ladder is admirable, be sure to keep your dream in perspective. The most successful professionals have happy personal lives. Keep this in mind when your friends or loved ones invite you out for dinner or drinks -- a festive night on the town may be just what you need to raise your spirits and inspire you to work both smarter and harder. Have some fun today!
