Edgy emotions could easily surface today. The Sun in moody Scorpio grates against touchy Chiron, digging up unresolved pain. The sensitive Moon then joins Chiron in impulsive Aries, so we may be quick to take offense. Perhaps doing what we want will take the heat off any drama, as sensual Venus opposes spontaneous Uranus at 6:22 pm EDT. While Luna still challenges the Sun, provoking us to wonder whether we have the right to be happy, we can give it a try anyway!
March 21-April 19
The thought of change could seem threatening to you. Even if it involves moving away from a painful past, perhaps you’re still afraid of giving something up that feels like part of your identity. Ultimately, the answer to your emotional deliberations might come down to what makes the most sense financially. When you see the potential for more money in a new direction, you may find it easier to begin moving toward that. Focus on what you’re gaining, not what you’re losing.
April 20-May 20
Someone might be pushing your buttons! You may find it hard to articulate why. Ask yourself what could happen if you just shared your feelings. Radical honesty can bring you a relationship breakthrough, as being vulnerable enough to admit what you don’t know may inspire similar candor in the other person. Your sense of unease might turn out to be more about you than about them. Whatever happens, talking it through together should at least remove them from your list of worries.
May 21-June 20
Health advice may not mix well with your friendships at the moment. No matter how well-intentioned you are when trying to recommend solutions for the physical complaints of others, somebody is likely to get offended. Maybe you truly have had some compelling experiences with methods that worked for you, and you wish everyone else could enjoy those same benefits. Remember that a less direct approach might currently be more effective in delivering your message. Live your best life and let people come to you.
June 21-July 22
Doing what feels good could be appealing today — on the other hand, it might be tinged with a sense of guilt. An authority figure you respect possibly gave you the idea that there’s something wrong with pleasure, or even that suffering makes you morally superior. Fortunately, your friends should be able to nudge you toward a healthier perspective. After all, your presence helps them have more joy as well! Stay grounded enough to see what’s truly required of you here and now.
July 23-August 22
Making your home comfortable may be a high priority at this time. However, your ambitious attitude toward improving it has the potential to stress you out. You might be painfully aware of the ways you may fall short of a lofty standard you’d like to meet! At least consider just chilling out for a little while. If you already feel pleasantly cozy, maybe perfecting all the details isn’t as urgent as it seems. Claim your own authority to declare what really matters to you.
August 23-September 22
You’re probably curious and eager to learn at the moment. Conversation is likely to flow smoothly, and a person you’re chatting with could share with you a new idea you find enticing. What sounds promising in theory might prove more challenging on a personal level, though. While there can be value in pushing past inhibitions that have held you back for too long, some limits have a purpose. Pay attention to any uncomfortable emotions that come up for you as you think things over.
September 23-October 22
Feeling good about yourself might seem risky. Perhaps you have a sense that someone close to you is unhappy with something about you. You don’t need to accept any negative treatment! Asking the other person what’s at the root of the tension could be transformative for your relationship — in addition, demonstrating a nonjudgmental attitude can increase your chances of getting a thoughtful answer. If a candid conversation isn’t possible, try to keep in mind that being estranged from you is their loss.
October 23-November 21
You may be eager to improve your physical appearance. However, what’s necessary to bring your vision into reality could be painful or too time-consuming to fit into your daily routine. This might be a discouraging discovery, but you’d be better off admitting it instead of pushing forward. Perhaps asking someone you trust can reveal simpler beauty hacks that would get you at least part of what you want. Even if it doesn’t, some human connection can balance your priorities in a more manageable way.
November 22-December 21
The public eye could be unkind regarding your current hobbies. Even if you’re not planning on doing anything particularly scandalous, there could be a lurking sense that others are about to judge you harshly for having a good time. That said, having something special to look forward to after being productive, whether at work or home, might motivate you to power through your responsibilities more efficiently than usual. You can do an awesome job, and no one else needs to know exactly why!
December 22-January 19
Putting on a happy face may become a challenge. While opportunities to socialize might beckon, you’re possibly having a hard time getting in the mood. Can you connect with others without putting on a false happy face? You don’t necessarily have to dive deep into the details, but telling people how you’re really doing is likely to be received more supportively than you expect. This act of honesty could even lighten your load enough to make room for a little bit of pleasure.
January 20-February 18
Excelling in your career might be making you a target for snarky remarks. Visibility can be risky in that way! These comments are probably completely off base, but you might want to look deeply at what’s really going on — are people you care about worried you won’t have time for them once you take your life to the next level? Identifying any valid complaints and addressing them from a place of emotional security can put your communications on a more productive track.
February 19-March 20
Feeling down about your financial situation could motivate you to learn how to make more money at present. Your research skills are being boosted by the universe, so you’re likely to find helpful information once you start looking. Upon closer inspection, you might also discover that things aren’t as dire as you think. Plus, hitting the books alone isn’t your only option. Talking to someone else can show you important leads that focus your search, so don’t be afraid to reach out!
