Yesterday | Today | Tomorrow


    The dynamic cosmic winds are still in flux as retrograde Mercury passes between the Earth and the Sun at 1:53 am EDT, aligning our words with our wills. Stating intentions aloud helps to confirm our direction in life. But our thoughts are on the move again when Mercury backs into spontaneous Aries at 1:37 pm. Meanwhile, the independent Aquarius Moon reminds us that we can express our individuality while still being part of a larger community.

  • Aries
    Mar 21 - Apr 20

    Your sense of time is all messed up today. On one hand, you’re in new territory now that the Sun has left Aries for the verdant meadows of Taurus. But messenger Mercury is retracing his steps into Aries, making you think the clocks are running backward. You’ve already been here, yet the calendar is marching on. Rather than attempting to untangle this esoteric mystery, focus on mundane matters that could positively impact your life. What is the universe trying to teach you by recycling the past? Henna Sohail wrote, "The moment you learn the lesson, the test will be over."

  • Taurus
    Apr 21 - May 21

    It’s wonderful to reconnect with your place in the world but you’re not so sure that everything is moving along according to schedule. In fact, you might be worried that your friends will choose a path into the future that doesn’t include you. Your insecurities must be resolved now or things will get worse before they start to improve. The truth is your concerns are valid, but your conclusions are not. If you are navigating by your metaphysical center of gravity, someone else’s judgments won’t deter you from your course.

  • Gemini
    May 22 - Jun 22

    You’re all over the map today, as if your metaphysical GPS is registering you everywhere at once. You actually like the feeling of being free from the constraints of space, but something holds you back anyhow. Don’t bother trying to rationalize your current buzz to everyone else. In fact, the real magic in your life is now coming from parallel universes. Your only job to is to remain open to the experience. Nathanial Hawthorne wrote, "A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities."

  • Cancer
    Jun23 - Jul 23

    Discussions at the water cooler and chat conversations online are not distractions from your life. Rather than an accessory, they are part of the fabric to your world. In fact, an informal exchange could turn into a significant interaction that impacts the direction of your career. Don’t be afraid of entertaining all possibilities now; stretching your mind by remaining open to the craziest ideas invites more options to enter the dialogue. From little things, big things grow.

  • Leo
    Jul 24 - Aug 23

    Although your main focus is clearing a path for professional development now, you might not be able to easily choose one way over the others. Each choice has benefits and complications, leaving you to untangle the good news from the bad. Forget about burying your head in books and losing yourself in the research. Instead, integrate your feelings with your abstract ideas; when your brain and your heart are working together, you derive benefits from both.

  • Virgo
    Aug 24 - Sep 23

    You have a fresh perspective on your daily routine, allowing you to consider changes that would have been impossible only a few days ago. Your objective now is not to maintain continuity; you really don’t care what familiar patterns are being set aside in the name of progress and efficiency. Your newly adopted schedule may be an upgrade, but it helps to look at it as an experiment before making any permanent plans. Personal growth occurs when you’re willing to be boldly innovative in your choices.

  • Libra
    Sep 24 - Oct 23

    Your newly reawakened interest in an old partner may be cause for contemplation today. Or, perhaps, a relationship issue that was recently put to rest is now back on your plate while mischievous Mercury retraces his steps into your 7th House of Others. Start a conversation while you have the chance; your thoughts need to be expressed or they will continue to wreak havoc from the twilight zone of your subconscious mind. Playwright George Bernard Shaw wrote, "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place."

    More for Libra: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Scorpio
    Oct 24 - Nov 22

    Although you’re interested in exploring powerful feelings with trusted friends now, it’s difficult to get beyond the polite conversation to reach the good stuff. You are stuck on minor details and you can’t seem to move on. Unfortunately, there might be nothing more to do in your current search for resolution. The rest of the story will surface on its own; the harder you push, the greater your frustration. It’s times like these when you need to remember that discontent is your own creation. You won’t discover what matters until you let go of what doesn’t.

    More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Sagittarius
    Nov 23 - Dec 21

    You have a message to deliver but you can’t decide whether to shout it from a mountaintop or only tell a few of your closest friends. Your news may feel important enough that everyone should know. But you’re worried about diluting your thoughts by spreading them before they are fully developed. Adopt a cautious approach now; your best ideas will only be better if you wait until Mercury turns direct. In the meantime, your work is cut out for you. Take full advantage of this opportunity to fine-tune your plans. Ralph Marston wrote, "What you do today can improve all your tomorrows."

  • Capricorn
    Dec 22 - Jan 20

    You measure your progress on a daily basis as an objective way to evaluate your work. Unfortunately, sometimes the most significant movement occurs in realms that are not visible. Don’t be overly concerned about outward appearances while cerebral Mercury is visiting your 4th House of Foundations. Strengthen your infrastructure now so later developments have the support needed to make them endure. Ovid wrote, "The cause is hidden; the effect is visible to all."

  • Aquarius
    Jan 21 - Feb 19

    Your moodiness is apparent to everyone today and you wear it like a badge of honor. It’s less about your changing emotions than it is about your commitment to transparency. Your logical approach encourages you to express all your feelings without concern for the consequences. Unfortunately, interpersonal relationships are often irrational and you might quickly regret your spoken words without any recourse to take them back. Writer Lori Palatnik observed, "Those who boast about being brutally honest are usually more brutal than honest."

  • Pisces
    Feb 20 - Mar 20

    A sudden wave of realism washes over you today, shifting your focus back to the mundane world. Analytical Mercury retrogrades into your 2nd House of Personal Resources, encouraging you to reassess your holdings. But this inquiry goes beyond money and material possessions, for your most important assets include your body and mind. Consider how you can sustain your energy while putting it to good use. By making the best of all things you make the most of yourself.
