Today is another day to avoid pushing matters, dear Aries, as there is likely resistance. It’s all too easy to be put off by communications, which can be curt or appear insensitive without the human connection in place. Try not to divide your attention or attempt to take on too many different topics and interests, as it can quickly lead to stress and tension with a Mercury-Mars minor challenging aspect active now. The Moon spends most of the day in your sector of joy and creativity, however, and anything that boosts your sense that you’re allowed time to play, create, or enjoy yourself can be helpful. Consider that nervous energy can interfere with your perceptions, and aim to take it easy instead of drawing quick conclusions.
Disagreements over fundamental values, and possibly how you handle money, can arise today, dear Taurus. Consider whether there is more to the problem than what meets the eyes since we sometimes harp on things that disguise a deeper issue. Your path now is to look at money matters in new ways. As you reduce expenses, you reduce strain on your brain. If a money or business matter is facing delays, it’s time to find new approaches. There is some tendency to divide your attention in ways that stress you out, and it makes sense to strive to keep things simple. Helping you with this is the Moon as it spends most of the day in your solar fourth house, calling for extra attention to your personal life and fundamental needs. Fortunately, ideas can come to you for improving your comfort levels and feeling of security.
With Mercury currently transiting your sign, retrograde, and connecting with Mars today, dear Gemini, it can be all too easy to feel tense or impatient. There is a tendency now to speak too quickly or insensitively. It’s also important to slow your physical pace. Too much stress leads to tension and possibly headaches or stomach aches — in other words, it can get physical. Ask yourself if it’s worth the trouble. Also, try not to put too much energy into tasks that aren’t ready to move forward. Taking on too many things at once can lead to unnecessary complications, so aim to keep it simple now. However, your curiosity ignites, and you’re standing out for your intelligence. It’s a good time to discover an interest.
Crossed wires can occur relatively easily today, dear Cancer, as retrograde Mercury clashes with Mars. Try not to take it to heart if someone says something that seems a little off. It can be a time of people “not meaning what they say, or saying what they mean.” Aim to keep things simple rather than take on more than you can comfortably handle for best results today. As well, try not to feel pressured to make a decision or draw a conclusion. Pushing something is unlikely to work to your advantage and can instead cause undue stress. It’s a good day for tending to your favorite possessions or familiar things–you’re in a building frame of mind, and you can find it particularly satisfying with activities that give you the sense that you’re taking care of your future security or comfort.
Today’s energies aren’t ideal for understanding one another, dear Leo. However, if you can avoid concentrating on the syntax of communications, you’ll be in much better shape. There can be a reminder of a past goal or dream, and you may not know whether it makes sense to resurrect it. You could be juggling too many personal interests or needs and demands of friends, and it can be challenging to focus on one or the other. It may be best to avoid snap judgments and decisions or hasty communications, particularly with friends and networks. Fortunately, with the Moon in your sign harmonizing with the Sun, there’s strong potential for bonding with someone while maintaining your independence in crucial ways. Do what you can to enjoy the emotional renewal and focus on personal goals.
In the first half of the day, relationships can be touchy or tricky, dear Virgo. It’s a toss-up whether you need to give someone extra attention to keep things running smoothly or give people space and avoiding overthinking problems. Minor social hiccups are likely, and it’s best not to take them to heart. While listening to your “inner voice” is generally a good idea, if it’s laden with guilt, fear, or worry, then it’s only going to stir up trouble. Avoid the rumor mill if you can. As the day advances, you’re in a great position to move forward and shine as you do so. You can find great pleasure in learning, sharing, and connecting. It’s a good time to reach out, share what you’ve learned, mingle, converse, and otherwise boost friendships. New ideas and even some inspiration can result. It’s a time to feel freer and happier as your knowledge of the world around you grows.
In the first half of the day, people seem to require more care and sensitivity, dear Libra, and there is a strong inclination for misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Keep apologies short, if necessary. With Venus at the top of your chart these days, you’re making it easy for others to respect you. Authority figures, including bosses and parents, are likely to see you in a good light. Someone could support, sponsor, or otherwise endorse you, particularly as the day advances and Venus moves into harmony with Uranus in your sector of support and others’ resources. It’s a good time to flirt with new ideas, concepts, and activities. Freeing yourself from self-limiting beliefs of what you can or cannot do is what Uranus in this sector of your chart is about, and right now, this process helps you present the best version of yourself to others.
Tensions, both internal and with others, are possible in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio. Someone might misunderstand your opinions or take them personally. Avoid explaining yourself to people who are acting narrow-minded but take the time to make things right with those who deserve your attention. Dissatisfaction might only resolve given a little time. As the day advances, you feel considerably freer to express yourself in new ways. It’s a beautiful time for a boost in a relationship. Keeping things fresh and exciting helps any relationships that have become predictable. People are drawn to your liveliness, charm, ideas, and wit today. Sharing ideas, philosophies, and beliefs can be mind-expanding and pleasant. Doing something offbeat or outside of the usual routine can be integral.
In the first half of the day, people can quickly feel slighted and are easily offended, dear Sagittarius, with a Venus-Chiron aspect in play. It may be better to avoid drama right now, which can very easily escalate. Instead, take more time to understand what it is you truly want. Trying to explain your way out of something is likely to be a waste of time right now. If rhythms in relationships are off temporarily, it’s best not to let them define your next move. As the day advances, you feel lighter and freer, particularly on an emotional level. You can experience a pleasant degree of detachment later today, and this is a welcome detour. It allows you just enough comfort and emotional distance from matters to enjoy yourself fully. Complicated issues seem far less complex or confusing. Loosening up your schedule helps you relax and have fun.
With today’s Solar Eclipse clearing the path for lifestyle improvements, dear Capricorn, ideas or insights gained now can help direct you along these lines. You’ll be taking charge of your work, daily routines, self-care programs, and health. However, there is some need to review before you make a fresh start. You may want to breathe some new life into old routines, for example. Perhaps due to a dilemma, a reinvigoration process begins, whether it’s about taking better care of yourself or recommitting to a work project. Aim to be content to be out of step or anonymous, just for now, as this can help you in the long run since it allows you to observe and redirect plans. Be sure to pace yourself and don’t jump into something without thinking. A new direction will come, and you don’t have to push for it. Instead, you’ll feel the motivation and courage build slowly but surely, eventually reaching a point where you’re in charge and confident in what you’re doing.
To clear the way for a fresh start after today’s Solar Eclipse, dear Aquarius, you may need to take care of some unfinished business. Those projects or associations that have been holding you back from expressing your authentic, creative self may come under scrutiny. This eclipse can serve as a strong push to start anew regarding a romance, creative project, or the pursuit of joy and pleasure in your life. As you review old ideas, new perspectives can unveil. There could be a reconnection with an old friend that gets you thinking or viewing a past relationship in a new way. This helps set up the new, slate-clearing energy of this eclipse. It can also be a time for bringing back old hobbies and pastimes. Since this powerful New Moon occurs in your sector of romance, creative self-expression, recreation, children, and hobbies, events happening now and in the coming weeks set you up for new beginnings in one or more of these areas of life. You are likely to attract positive attention from others, especially romantically or creatively speaking. Allow the process to unfold, and keep in mind that eclipses can drain your energy temporarily.
If you’ve been undecided about a project launch, a move, or a personal change, dear Pisces, the energy of today’s Solar Eclipse can nudge you forward. However, take your time with brand new beginnings and aim to strategize and plan. Keep in mind that any backtracking you need to do now will contribute significantly to the strength of plans and future ventures. There can be some critical renovations and improvements in your home or with family relationships on the horizon. A fresh start may arise from a feeling of being in the dark or in limbo, necessitating a new approach. Whatever the reason, you’re starting anew with your home or personal life, family, or needs for nurture, comfort, and safety. It can involve excavating and looking to past patterns to better understand where you want to go. It’s time to assess what may have held you back from thriving, mainly related to your career and domestic world, and how you balance your time between them. The coming weeks are powerful for taking charge of your home life, attention to matters of security and safety, connecting with family and your own emotions. This eclipse can serve as a cosmic nudge to find your roots, learn your worth, build your sense of security, and focus on improving your support system or base of operations. There can be the need or desire to put your personal life first now, and changes may be afoot.
