Dark clouds make way for sunshine! We begin with a gloomier aspect, as the emotional Moon standing off with critical Saturn fogs our lives with loneliness.

Finally, the Moon works hand-in-hand with communicative Mercury at 3:05 pm EDT to make our path forward clearer, increasing our intuition as blue skies roll in. The light always returns.

March 21-April 19

Low energy can make things seem worse than they really are. You might begin with some despair, feeling like you're all on your own and left to pick up the pieces, but you may simply be exhausted or not properly caring for yourself. Eating a meal, taking a shower, and taking a nap could be all you need to turn things around! Afterward, the optimistic side of things should become more apparent. Give yourself some grace and rest before getting back to the grind.



April 20-May 20

Fears may be dramatized. Catastrophizing any action that you take is a pitfall for you now, with you coming up with dreary future consequences that might happen, branching off of small mistakes made in the present. It's easier to see the potential negative outcomes from your actions than the positive ones, but taking no action isn't going to bring you the future you want either. Take the initiative, because even if you stumble, your vision won't be brought to life without you!


May 21-June 20

Trying to adhere to tradition might be holding you back. You could be trying to live up to a cultural standard, but that may bog you down in stagnation and leave you unfulfilled. The standards and dreams of the people that are important to us are worth exploring, but if they're intuitively not for you, then you have the cosmic green light to take the path less traveled by. You've got a lot of life to live, so don't be afraid of detours.


June 21-July 22

Healthy competition is one thing, but always comparing yourself to others isn't beneficial. You might be learning everything you can to change yourself in ways that you're already just fine, or you may be envious of what someone else has. Leaning into your natural beauty and talents should help you feel more authentic, and the direction to take will likely become obvious. Find ways that you and the people around you are already alike and appreciate how your different strengths complement each other.


July 23-August 22

Security can currently feel claustrophobic. You may have made a conscious decision that allowed you to mature and progress toward your future. Even so, you might worry that you've made the wrong choice or that you can't turn back. Making commitments and having others depend on you can be scary, but keep your own authority in mind and trust yourself as much as possible. Maybe the past you couldn't have handled this amount of responsibility, but the present you can get the job done.



August 23-September 22

Life can feel like it's you versus them right now. A disagreement could make you feel shut out by the other person, and despite the fact that it's likely hurting them too, you might be more wounded than they are. Going to the other person with a willingness to learn from your mistakes is the most authentic way to end this disagreement, and they are likely to meet you with humility as well. Your connection means more than being right or wrong in this instance.


September 23-October 22

Anxiety can color your viewpoint now. What's really going on and what you think is going on might be two different circumstances entirely, due to fear or miscommunication. The people around you may be exacerbating your anxiety instead of helping -- consider doing some deep breathing or reaching out to someone who understands you on a deeper level than most people do. Finding your center will make space for all those worries to melt away, and having someone you trust around can't hurt.


October 23-November 21

Loneliness might find you in a crowd of people. You may feel different from the other people in a group that you're in today, leading you to doubt or talk down to yourself, but try contemplating the idea that you're retreating before anyone has really had a chance to connect with you. You might be withdrawing out of self-judgment, while they believe you're backing away because you're judging them. Once you open up and meet them where they're at, you could make new friends.



November 22-December 21

Authority figures may hurt your feelings. You might have been scolded or shown disappointment from someone like your boss or your parents, which shakes your judgment and invites personal doubt -- whether you've actually made a mistake or they're faultily accusing you. While it would be easy to let their mood dictate your feelings, it's wiser to fix as much as you can today and try again next time without dwelling for too long on the mistakes that you may or may not have made.


December 22-January 19

Your mindset might be based on some faulty knowledge. You possibly believe certain things about yourself that were told to you by authority figures, but this may have been misinformation that they didn't know was false -- or their own projections that they placed on you. Unlearning this knowledge about who you were supposed to be and reinventing yourself in your own way can upgrade your philosophy and let you look at yourself through a new lens. Don't box yourself into their vision.


January 20-February 18

Self-isolation is frequently a self-fulfilling prophecy. You may have guarded your heart for good reason, but doing so also blocks you from potential friendships and opportunities to connect with people who will be positive influences. It might seem like if you want something done right that you have to do it yourself, based on people hurting you in the past, but you likely can't reach your goals completely solo! Open your heart, because the connections that you find can last a long time.



February 19-March 20

Someone could be about to emotionally desert you. They may have insulted you in a way that feels irreparable, and while that does hurt, remind yourself that they're actually telling you something about themselves. They might be trying to make you feel lonely because they feel alone, and reaching through their defense with an attempt at a kinder conversation should increase your understanding of them. Not everyone will let you in, but at least you tried to create a better dialogue.
