It may feel as if our dreams are merging with reality today, but be wary of rose-colored glasses when making concrete decisions. The emotional Moon makes a harmonious trine to playful Mercury followed by a conjunction to idealistic Neptune, giving us more wit and whimsy in our everyday lives. We won’t want to be dragged down by disappointing or serious subjects now. Happily, Mercury's trine to Neptune at 11:40 pm EST helps us share our lofty dreams and creative inspirations with others. Let the magic flow!
Today could be an emotional rollercoaster for you, but a good one! Explore the different aspects and interests of your personality and let yourself be the complex person that you are. There is no one, right way to express yourself, and you have many options presented to you now. You may not totally understand why you’re feeling the way you are, but discovering the different facets of who you are is one of the best parts of the human experience.
April 20-May 20
You could have an emotionally eye-opening conversation or experience with a small group of friends today, or perhaps you start to see a friendship growing into a closer friendship or even romance. You may also be exposed to another person’s belief system that is different from your own and learn something about yourself through the faith of another. This doesn’t mean that you’ll change faiths, only that your reaction to their experience will teach you about your personal truth and what you believe. Be open to learning and listening.
May 21-June 20
Your career situation could be hazy, but you may receive an offer today that is better than the ones that have come before. However, avoid signing on the dotted line, because your vision might be clouded by a mental picture of this opportunity that doesn’t line up with reality. Express your gratitude for the opportunities that you receive, but ask them to let you sleep on it. Don’t let anyone rush you to make a decision, and if they do, take that as your cue to leave!
June 21-July 22
You will want freedom today and the ability to move without reporting back to anyone, so any controlling relationships in your life may make themselves known when you try to break free. A rigid schedule will feel oppressive, so block out some free time where you can stop and smell the roses. If you have every second of the day planned and you don’t want to deviate from your course of actions, there may be delays. This is to make sure you don’t burn out, so don’t fight it!
July 23-August 22
Envy could rear its ugly head today, likely within someone in your midst. This can even come from someone who you love and trust, but you must realize that this is an issue within their own heart and not something you can control. Making progress in silence is your best course of action now, because allowing everyone to see how far you’ve come can bring unnecessary negativity. Trust that your accomplishments are worth just as much when only you know about them and celebrate yourself.
August 23-September 22
It’s not a good time to make a relationship or a business partnership official, but it is a good time to be inventive in the connections that you’re already a part of. If you’ve been feeling stuck in a monotonous routine with others, see what you can do to get out of this rut. It’s helpful to discuss ways to add excitement to your life or business with the people around you, because they’ll have good suggestions to break free of the boredom. Spice up your life with variety!
September 23-October 22
It might take longer than normal to get through your daily routine, or your energy could feel low today. Still, you can expect yourself to be emotionally and financially secure. Take it slow and avoid acting recklessly, because accidents can happen if you’re distracted while you go about your day. If you have a busy day planned, take it step by step and stay focused. However, if you have the freedom to do so, take a breather and let your fun side take over the schedule!
October 23-November 21
You want to share your thoughts, but it can be difficult to find someone who truly engages with you. If you have people with whom you can be open without being interrupted, then by all means, this is a wonderful day to connect with them. However, if you don’t have people around who will listen, try pouring your emotions out into a work of art or a journal entry. Whatever allows you to get these thoughts out of your head and into your real world will help you feel fulfilled.
November 22-December 21
You might be feeling more introverted than usual, preferring your own company or the company of the people you live with. While this could translate into a desire to stay home all day, it’s also an invitation to envision where you’ll be living a few years from now or the family that you wish to have someday. Don’t feel silly about dreaming big. Talking about what you want or creating a vision board can help you to gain a clearer picture of your true path.
December 22-January 19
Big personal changes are possible now, but it can be difficult to communicate to others exactly what you’re trying to achieve. Your new and different self-expression may be misunderstood, but trust that you’ll have better luck following your heart than you will trying to follow the crowd. Eventually, it’s likely that they will see what you were trying to tell them all along. Whether they get the picture or not, though, let your true self shine through the uncertainty.
January 20-February 18
Your financial situation can be uncertain or obscured today, so be wary of spending more than you have in your wallet. Stay grounded and don’t bite off more than you can chew, because overindulgence is likely. When someone tries to sell you something that you want but may not need, think twice before you say yes. Still, while your sense of practicality can be skewed, you’re likely to have a productive day and others will appreciate your inventive ideas and positivity.
February 19-March 20
Your dreams take the forefront of your mind today and you are drawn toward sensitive and hopeful people rather than those who would force you to take a long, hard look at reality. Your honesty and vulnerability are something to be treasured, not something deserved by everyone. Don’t give your heart to the people who would discourage you or condemn your interests. Just like a butterfly, sometimes we have to give ourselves time to grow stronger before we can show the world who we are.
