Overthinking will only impede our progress today. The Moon moves into impulsive Aries at 1:06 am EDT, urging us to take action. However, Luna's following square to deliberative Mercury could cause us to second guess ourselves. Instead of making endless lists of pros and cons, it’s better to move forward, even if it means flipping a coin. The Moon’s conjunction to dynamic Mars and sextile to content Venus ensure that everything will work to our advantage, provided we have faith in the universe. When in doubt, remember that everything always works out as it's meant to.
Your determination to become the first, only, or best at something may cause you to go to extremes today. That’s a good thing. Too often, people admonish you for being over the top, but dampening your passionate spirit takes a toll on you. After a while, you start denying your heartfelt desires for the sake of others' approval. The longer this trend continues, the more unhappy you will become, so throw off the shackles today and do something risky. While some may gasp at your audacity, you aren't doing it for them. Embrace your fire.
April 20-May 20
Keep any plans to change your job or increase your income a secret for now. Giving rivals a peek at your hand could cause you to lose ground. If you're searching for a new role, accepting a job at a hospital, university, or government agency may be especially lucrative. You will need to hit the ground running, so be prepared to make split-second decisions. Your willingness to learn as you go will make your employer breathe a sigh of relief; your self-sufficiency is their freedom. Whenever possible, take the initiative.
May 21-June 20
Your mind is so sharp, but that doesn't mean you have all the answers and ideas. You thrive when working with others, so take this opportunity to brainstorm with clever people and collaborate on a project that’s close to your heart. Though you naturally come across as light and carefree, putting your sensitive side on display could attract more attention toward this venture. While the rest of the world seems jaded, people will embrace your refreshing honesty. Connecting on an emotional level can have a long-lasting effect.
June 21-July 22
If someone in a leadership role proposes a predictable plan today, be willing to challenge it. You, too, are a natural leader. You’re willing to blaze new trails instead of following the crowd. Suggest a different idea, product, or service that hasn’t been offered before. At first, your boss may dismiss the concept, but after they’ve had some time to reflect on it, they might give you the green light. Don't listen to anyone who makes you doubt your potential. By the time you bring this project to fruition, your successful work will speak for itself.
July 23-August 22
Take some time today to learn about an ideology that is currently sweeping the globe. Your initial skepticism may quickly be replaced with understanding or admiration. Although there will be aspects of this philosophy that conflict with the belief system you have held for years, don't let that stop you from putting these concepts to the test. Silence your inner critic as you experiment with new attitudes toward love, work, and spirituality. This outlook could turn you into a magnet for abundance. Sometimes the most daring ideas are the most empowering ones.
August 23-September 22
A radical transformation is upon you and it won’t wait a second longer. It’s time to embark on a fitness, lifestyle, or therapy regimen that will require tremendous focus. Friends may not be very supportive of this decision, so you might want to keep quiet about it for now. After you’ve gained some traction in your new direction, you will be in a better position to discuss your situation. It’s also possible that these friends have a vested interest in your maintaining bad habits. Let your true north be wellness. Do whatever is necessary to thrive.
September 23-October 22
You could feel pushed by your best friend, romantic partner, or creative collaborator to pursue another line of work today. Although you don’t like the idea of going on interviews or auditions, you will benefit from entering a more creatively fulfilling field. The experience you have gained in your present or recent profession can be easily transferred to another. Your background may even be perceived as an asset by an employer who is looking for a different kind of worker. Emphasize your uniqueness rather than trying to assimilate with the team.
October 23-November 21
Try not to obsess over rendering a perfect performance at work today. Take a deep breath, relax, and do your best. Treat mistakes like learning opportunities; your coworkers will be forgiving. By giving yourself permission to be a beginner, you allow yourself a chance to go in a new direction and develop your own methods and style. You may hit upon a quick and efficient way to get things done that could make everyone’s lives easier. Think about writing up a step-by-step guide for others to follow; you'll enjoy their expressions of gratitude.
November 22-December 21
Enjoying yourself should be your top priority today. Put your chores on the back burner or allow someone to step in and help; the world won’t fall apart while you allow yourself a much-needed break. Getting out of your routine could make you realize that you’ve fallen into an unfair balance of responsibility. Devote some time to train people how to do tasks that you’ve been doing for years. You may not realize it, but your friends and associates want to be useful and do their part. Show faith in their abilities.
December 22-January 19
Expressing your feelings to a family member could trigger an argument today. However, don’t be afraid of this conflict; clearing the air is critical to the health of close relationships. After venting your anger, you may be shocked to discover that this loved one has also been upset with you. Instead of rejecting their complaints, listen carefully to them. In your zeal to make your home run like a well-oiled machine, you may have neglected your family’s emotional needs. Be willing to admit your faults and vow to do better. The harmony you desire is in your hands.
January 20-February 18
You’ve always marched to the beat of a different drummer. If you’ve adopted an unusual approach to diet or wellness, you won't mind if friends dismiss it; you feel its positive results first-hand. However, maintain a diplomatic silence about your methods on social media today. People who are suffering can react badly to advice from others that is overly simplistic. If your vibrant health catches someone's eye and they're curious, they'll ask you about it. Otherwise, just be happy knowing you've hit on something that works well for you.
February 19-March 20
Worrying about others' opinions will undermine your earning potential. You may hear about an unusual job today and think you're a natural fit for this position. It could earn you a lot of money, but it might also cause judgmental types to raise their eyebrows in surprise. Having more money would allow you to devote more time to artistic and leisurely pursuits, and you can’t put a price on the happiness these activities bring. Do yourself a favor and submit your application. Don't let others' expectations decide your future.
