Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


    The strong-willed Taurus Moon encourages us to do whatever is necessary to reach our goals. Supportive lunar aspects grease the path that leads to success, facilitating progress during the first part of the day. However, we run into obstacles later as Luna’s stressful alignments test our resolve. The Moon’s dynamic square to the Fixed Leo Sun creates a standoff between our need for self-indulgence and our drive to meet other people’s expectations.

  • Aries
    Mar 21 - Apr 20

    Although you might resist at first, you finally settle into the steady rhythm of the day. You wish the pace was quicker, but it’s wise to resign yourself to work within the constraints you cannot control. You may be annoyed if someone criticizes you for bucking the tide, even though you feel like you’re flowing with it. Your frustration builds until you no longer want to participate in group events at all. Remember, you can hold your ground without actually retreating. African-American scholar Anna Julia Cooper said, “Peace produced by suppression is neither natural nor desirable.”

  • Taurus
    Apr 21 - May 21

    Withholding your needs seems like a strategy that will work today. You believe everyone will think everything is smoothly moving along according to plan as long as you don’t reveal what you really want. However, you may inadvertently wear your emotions on your sleeve now that the moody Moon is shining in your 1st House of Personality. Instead of putting so much energy into hiding your desires behind a wall of political correctness, just state your truth as directly and succinctly as possible. Poet Walter Scott wrote, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”

    May 22 - Jun 22

    Your friends might not recognize your behavior today, since you’re so quiet. In fact, your expressive energy seems restrained while the practical Taurus Moon hides in your 12th House of Privacy. Rather than wasting time asking others for what you want, you’re just taking care of business on your own. Still, you can’t help but think you’re coming into an adversarial phase when your needs will be more public and your drive for satisfaction will be apparent to everyone. English writer G.K. Chesterton noted, “There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.”

  • Cancer
    Jun23 - Jul 23

    Your longings continue to intensify today, but you may be alienated because there’s little communication about your desires. You don’t mind if others are aware of your feelings; it’s just that you wish to avoid being the center of attention now. You prefer to make less waves and disappear into a group of like-minded friends than upset anyone with your needs that can’t easily be fulfilled. Mark Twain quipped, “Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.”

  • Leo
    Jul 24 - Aug 23

    You prefer sticking to your own agenda today because no one else’s plans make any sense to you. You want to collaborate with a coworker, but quickly abandon the idea when you realize how different your goals are now. There are times when compromise is a good idea because it allows you to combine forces for the common good. However, you may be better off proceeding on your own, especially if you’re following your dreams. Journalist Norman Cousins wrote, “The tragedy of life is not death, but what we let die inside of us while we live."

  • Virgo
    Aug 24 - Sep 23

    You may be more expressive about your current need for excitement than you are about your day at work. In fact, you’re unlikely to disclose much about your professional activities. At first, it might seem as if you’re embarrassed about your career, but your motivation for secrecy comes from somewhere else. You simply want to be judged as a human, not for your job title. Swami Rama Tirtha said, “A god defined is a god confined.”

  • Libra
    Sep 24 - Oct 23

    Although you enjoy your role as Diplomat-at-Large in the current social chaos, you might not know how to proceed without stirring up some friction. The more you remain true to yourself, the greater the stress between you and those around you. Nevertheless, at some point you must choose between following your own star or supporting the collective vision of your network of friends and associates. Fortunately, you can turn this situation into a win-win today if you heed educator Mollie Marti’s advice, “Allow the way to your great work be guided by your services to others.”

  • Scorpio
    Oct 24 - Nov 22

    You might find yourself in a standoff with a close friend or lover today. The most obvious responses don’t seem to work, partly because you’re both so unwilling to give in. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to merge two structures that are built on totally different foundations. Thankfully, you don’t have to combine them into one. The solution is so obvious now: just take the best from each and start anew. Indian author Shiv Khera wrote, “Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.”

  • Sagittarius
    Nov 23 - Dec 21

    You have your work cut out for you today and although it may not be the most enjoyable task, you’re willing to do it anyhow. Unfortunately, you also have another set of goals that don’t reflect your job assignments; you’re interested in improving the life of everyone you know. You believe it’s your duty to pitch in and help the state of affairs all over the planet. Sometimes, it’s hard to know what to do but now your path is obvious. Don’t lose track of your aspirations, both mundane and altruistic. Balance your personal needs with those of the greater good for the best results.

  • Capricorn
    Dec 22 - Jan 20

    You’re thrilled when your personal needs support your deeper mission in life. The simplistic Taurus Moon dwells in your 5th House of Creativity, and your individual self-expression works hand in hand with a more powerful evolutionary force that’s guiding you in the direction of positive change. Don’t resist what you can’t yet understand. Your faith in the wisdom of nature will empower you to reap the rewards of spiritual growth. Politician Frank Clark wrote, “We find comfort among those who agree with us and growth among those who don’t.”

  • Aquarius
    Jan 21 - Feb 19

    People seem to be overly insistent in their negotiations with you today. But you don’t want to give away so much that you feel there is nothing left. You may need to stand up and say no, even if you are in philosophical agreement with those around you. Reaffirming your boundaries not only protects you from exhausting your resources, it also boosts your self-confidence. Thich Nhat Hanh said, “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”

    More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Pisces
    Feb 20 - Mar 20

    You’re not interested in altering your schedule for anyone else today. In fact, you expect others to adapt to your calendar if they want to join in your cause. Being willing to meet on neutral territory makes a substantial difference. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face; if a small compromise allows you to make a big contribution, do it before the energy shifts. Journalist Jane Wells wrote, “Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break.”
