Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


    The holiday season fades further into the past once the Moon shifts into practical Virgo at 3:11 am EST. Although it’s the end of the workweek for most, it feels as if we are just getting started. We eagerly make lists and cross off the items one at a time, striving to bring efficiency to everything we do. Nevertheless, we grow less interested in the details and more interested in our dreams as the Moon moves to oppose imaginative Neptune.

    More for General:

  • Aries
    Mar 21 - Apr 20

    You receive a wake-up call from the cosmos today, informing you that your responsibilities are continuing to grow as your available time continues to shrink. There is no time to waste and the sooner you get started, the better your chances are to finish everything on schedule. Instead of taking a global approach to your obligations, the Virgo Moon works in your favor if you establish priorities and handle one item at a time. Setting many smaller goals and accomplishing them sequentially is more effective than aiming at a final destination.

  • Taurus
    Apr 21 - May 21

    You can make steady progress toward your goals without exhausting yourself in the process. However, working harder won’t necessarily lead to higher productivity today. Paradoxically, enjoying yourself seems to be the key element in determining how much you accomplish now. Focusing on the tasks in front of you is easier if you adopt a playful attitude while the conscientious Virgo Moon is visiting your 5th House of Fun and Games. Don’t try to explain the connection between your happiness and your performance. Instead, honor your inner child and show others what you can do.

  • Gemini
    May 22 - Jun 22

    Although you often avoid conversations about your desires, you’re inclined to draw someone into a heartfelt discussion today. At first, you may be hesitant to reveal your innermost thoughts, but are quickly acclimated to the emotional landscape once you begin talking. Granted, it’s easier to dwell on positive feelings than to sink into the shadows of negativity. Remember, the magic is hiding in the darkness and it’s up to you to go there and shine the light of awareness so everyone can see the source of the current problems. The devil you know has less power than the devil you don’t know.

  • Cancer
    Jun23 - Jul 23

    You hope to learn all you can from people in your environment, but that doesn’t mean you want to waste time socializing. In fact, you wish you could cut away all the fluff from a conversation and go directly to the core of the matter today. Nevertheless, others might think you’re too serious for your own good. Although you don’t want to get lost in distractions, a judicious sprinkling of comic relief lightens the atmosphere and encourages everyone to smile. Maya Angelou wrote, “I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh.”

  • Leo
    Jul 24 - Aug 23

    You are extremely discerning today when evaluating your options and deciding what to do next. Instead of relying on your intuition and responding spontaneously to the current circumstances, consider which activities serve you best in achieving your long-term goals. Remove your rose-colored glasses, plant your feet firmly on the ground, and proudly state your current goals. Once spoken aloud, your intentions become a magnet for initiating change. Making the right choices in the present moment creates the most direct route into your future.

  • Virgo
    Aug 24 - Sep 23

    You may attempt to bury your emotions today in order to project a more serious version of yourself. You are living under the illusion that showing your vulnerability reveals a fundamental weakness in your character. However, it’s actually your fear of being judged that prompts you to set aside your integrity so you can display a false picture of your strength. Ironically, you lose power when you hide your true feelings. Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self.”

  • Libra
    Sep 24 - Oct 23

    Your rich inner life can be a distraction from your current obligations or it can feed your soul in a meaningful manner. Fortunately, you’re not just at the whim of your cerebral process; you have the power to alter the direction of your fantasies and daydreams. But the practice is opposite what you might expect. If noise is bubbling up from your subconscious, don’t try to shut it off, for that only increases the flow. Instead, let your thoughts take you wherever they will. Eventually, the interference will settle down, allowing important messages to reach your awareness. The voice of your intuition is subtle, but its impact is profound.

    More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Scorpio
    Oct 24 - Nov 22

    Everyone is commonly told to march to the sound of their own drummer. However, you are attuned to the rhythms of those around you today, and might find it difficult to discern the drum beat emanating from within. On one hand, you can acquiesce and simply walk in step with everyone else. On the other hand, you could take a more radical approach by temporarily retreating from the hustle and bustle of the day, thereby allowing your inner song to come through loud and clear. Lao Tzu wrote, “Silence is the source of great strength.”

    More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Sagittarius
    Nov 23 - Dec 21

    You normally prefer to look at the big picture rather than the minutia. Unfortunately, you won’t get ahead at work unless you consciously pay attention to each and every detail now that the analytical Virgo Moon is shining her light in your 10th House of Career. Thankfully, avoiding distractions throughout the day rewards you with measurable progress, along with the chance to wander in your imagination later this evening. C.S. Lewis wrote, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

    More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Capricorn
    Dec 22 - Jan 20

    Remembering your dreams today is not sufficient to make them come true. Oddly enough, you must fill in as many details as you can, even if you need to exercise your creativity rather than your memory. It’s not important if your fantasy is exactly the same as long as you take the time to deepen the connections while you are awake. The more specific you are when you recollect the original vision, the greater the chances are that you can manifest them. Muhammad Ali said, “The man who has no imagination has no wings.”

    More for Capricorn: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Aquarius
    Jan 21 - Feb 19

    You don’t necessarily want to be on center stage today but you still hope to be appreciated for all that you do. You might believe that your anonymity serves you well, but it’s actually a double-edged sword. Although you escape the critical of eyes of an audience, you also miss out on the positive feedback. Nevertheless, a little self-imposed isolation is healthy now because it intensifies your inner journey of discovery. Author Adrian Corday wrote, “Happiness is not determined by what’s happening around you. It always comes from within.”

    More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Pisces
    Feb 20 - Mar 20

    Ignoring someone’s feedback is a mistake today, especially if they are telling you something you don’t want to hear. However, it’s particularly difficult to please others now because their needs are so specific, frustrating your efforts to be responsible. Although your imagination is working overtime, you still must maintain a practical approach when it comes to building relationships in your social network. Nevertheless, you can’t escape the truth. Zig Ziglar wrote, “The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.”
