Emotional excitement is likely to cool off quickly today. The dramatic Leo Moon opposes logical Saturn and grates against repressed Pluto, so our attempts to share what’s in our souls may meet an uninterested audience. This could be a major letdown. However, after Luna enters practical Virgo at 8:25 pm EDT, our desires to receive validation from others might become less pressing. When we can take action to meet our needs ourselves, we’ll probably feel proud of what we accomplish.
March 21-April 19
You might have a great idea for an activity today. Convincing your friends to buy in, however, could be challenging. As the attentive Moon moves into your duty-oriented 6th house, perhaps you’ll have to admit you have some responsibilities of your own you’ve been avoiding. You may have to take care of the boring stuff for lack of other options, but that still gives you a chance to get the most out of your organized mood. Make sure you schedule fun times for another day!
April 20-May 20
Your career could seem especially demanding at the moment. As pressing concerns accumulate in your home or family life, you may be acutely aware that you don’t have time to deal with them in the attentive way you’d like. Before helping others, though, you might need to put on your own oxygen mask. Getting clear about your most important personal priorities can help you triage everything else coming your way. Build perspective on what is and isn’t a true crisis.
May 21-June 20
The humor of everyday life could grab your attention today. However, the people around you may push back against any attempt at joking around, as they’re probably insistent on discussing more serious issues. While you might feel misunderstood, perhaps you just need to be realistic about the limitations of a particular environment. When the perceptive Moon moves into your comfortable 4th house, you’re likely to find a place where you can let your hair down. Read the room, and then roast it!
June 21-July 22
Finding balance in your financial life may be a challenge now. While you might want to buy something that improves your daily existence, someone you share finances with could put their foot down. Even though the provocation perhaps seems small, it can be an important catalyst for a bigger conversation about limits. Working toward your major goals is necessary, but you’re likely to lose motivation if you feel too deprived along the way. Don’t be afraid to reward progress every once in a while.
July 23-August 22
Someone could block your efforts to assert yourself now. Perhaps the other person didn’t create the practical problems they’re pointing out to you, but you might need to find that out on your own instead of taking their word for it. As the emotional Moon enters your self-confident 2nd house, you may want to see how far you can get using only resources that are entirely yours. Remember: whether or not you achieve the results you desire, you’ll get every bit of the blame/credit!
August 23-September 22
Your devotion to duty could be hard-core today. What motivates you might be something you’re not ready to share with others. Losing yourself in your tasks isn’t likely to succeed for long, though. When the Moon enters your sign, your needs and reactions will probably be front and center. If that scares you, you may be better off channeling your effort into addressing whatever you’re ashamed of. You already know you can accomplish a lot once you get to work, so hop to it!
September 23-October 22
Getting swept up in an exciting crowd could be appealing to you now. However, you might not feel entirely comfortable sharing your true feelings with these folks. After the sensitive Moon moves into your contemplative 12th house, you may want to spend some time thinking about why that is. Perhaps you believe your whole self won’t be accepted by the people you hope to impress. While reality has its boundaries, make sure you’re not embellishing the limits beyond what’s necessary.
October 23-November 21
You may be looking for approval in your public life. While you might have achievements that deserve recognition, trying to overcompensate for a lack of affection in your most personal connections has the potential to backfire. Looking to your broader social network can help you meet your emotional needs in a more diffuse way. Although the circumstances that led to you feeling lonely perhaps seem unfair, being demanding toward others will only make things worse. Take ownership of your situation.
November 22-December 21
Your intellectual passions feel exciting today. However, finding an audience able to keep up with you could be a challenge, as the people around you might not understand the things that are lighting you up. You may need to be realistic regarding the best use of your energy. Your example can speak a whole lot louder than words, dear Archer. If you’re able to find a way to bring what inspires you into your career, focus your effort in that direction.
December 22-January 19
Forces beyond your control could batter your budget at the moment. Just when you think you’ve got everything in order, someone else might call on you to help them out. The answer may not be as simple as yes or no. As the discerning Moon moves into your 9th House of Beliefs, perhaps you need to think through a more nuanced way of handling requests that don’t follow the usual rules. Look for a way to be flexible without being impulsive.
January 20-February 18
Someone close to you could seem frustratingly emotional today. You may want a strictly logical conversation, but is that realistic? Rigid insistence on having the discussion go according to your terms will probably just make the other person more upset. Hearing them out, however much it might challenge you, is likely to alert you to a boundary that needs to be reworked in your relationship. Even if the change requested seems petty to you, you should do what you can to bring comfort.
February 19-March 20
Your responsibilities could feel confining for you now, especially when peers seem to have things easier! While you might not truly know the whole story of what’s going on with anyone else, it’s definitely fair to focus on your feelings regarding your own situation. Perhaps it’s time to tell someone you’re involved with what’s not working for you. If you want to get results that meet your unique needs, try negotiating one-on-one without bringing claims about others into the conversation.
