Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, Jan. 21st

Weaving stories to connect the apparently separate bits of data in our lives creates tapestries of information. The Moon’s shift into curious Gemini at 9:04 am EST pulls us out of our hearts and into our heads. We feel like we have all the answers as the Moon harmonizes with the conscious Sun, clever Mercury and confident Jupiter. Conceptual breakthroughs are likely as Mercury the Messenger forms a collaborative sextile with ingenious Uranus.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 Apr 19)

Your mind is free to explore new ideas today, and your words are in the spotlight. Although you can jump to brilliant conclusions very quickly now, think before you speak and carefully read your email through one more time before you hit the send button. However, there’s no reason to hold back once you’re sure of your message. Since you have a greater impact on others than you realize, it’s wise to get it right the first time. Give your waiting audience a show they won’t forget.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 May 20)

Your thoughts may run amok today, as if they’re not under the jurisdiction of your logic. But temporarily setting aside common sense can actually lead to an unconventional solution to a tricky problem. Unfortunately, your co-workers might not be willing to give your ideas a fair hearing unless you have the facts to back up your position. Do your homework and be sure to have your information in order before sharing your plans with anyone else.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 Jun 20)

The Moon’s return to restless Gemini inspires your thoughts to fly around in circles, as if they are eagles spiraling on the thermals. Your performance seems easy and graceful to others, but you might need to work hard to keep up the appearance. Meanwhile, you could feel stuck as the prevailing winds won’t allow you to break free. Don’t waste energy struggling against the breezes now; enjoy floating around until the wind changes and gives you an opportunity to escape.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 Jul 22)

Sharing your emotions can be a challenge now, even if you’re clear about how you feel. However, you sense a change coming and you aren’t yet sure as to which way your mood will swing next. Thankfully, this uncertainty isn’t upsetting or worrisome today as long as you are content to just wait it out before making any important decisions. In the meantime, discuss your options objectively and be open to the feedback you receive.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 Aug 22)

Someone might come to you with an unusual plan today, but you aren’t so quick to endorse what you consider to be a risky solution to a simple problem. You can envision alternate strategies that seem more straightforward, and you would rather exhaust these direct approaches first. Even if you’re certain that your answer is the most logical one, remain open to the surprises you encounter along the way.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 Sep 22)

Your friends need you today in ways that require you to express more emotions than you prefer. Even if you’re resistant to revealing your inner thoughts now, try softening enough to give others what they want. You may feel like you’re just going through the motions at first, but sharing your heart is a perfect prescription to brighten your day. You might receive something beautiful in exchange for stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 Oct 22)

You could find yourself in a jam today, and you’re uncertain if you should ask for help or just let it ride. Imagine what you would do if you had absolutely nothing standing in your way. Then, return your focus back to your current situation. If sharing your needs can bring you any closer to your goals, then don’t hesitate to say what’s on your mind and just deal with the consequences as they arise.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 Nov 21)

You may intellectualize complex emotions that normally elude description. But your intuition is operating in overdrive now, so don’t be afraid to rely on it. Nevertheless, you still have to prioritize your needs or you will be pulled in so many directions that you’ll just end up annoyed. However, having a clear destination in mind gives you just enough stability that you can be creative without losing your way.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 Dec 21)

You can talk your way out of nearly anything today, relying on your social graces to avoid conflict. Your charm and wit are working for you now in ways that surprise even you. You know what you want and are willing to ask for it. Still, you could miss a significant opportunity when it appears in your life if you aren’t receptive. Being more sensitive to others helps you recognize your own path to happiness.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It may be challenging to stay motivated today because you can discover so many fun ways to keep your mind occupied that you end up avoiding your chores. Leaving a job undone is contrary to your basic nature, since you like to take care of business before you play. However, it’s time to try something different now by making pleasurable distractions your top priority for a change. The work will patiently wait for your return.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 Feb 18)

You could be very happy today, even if there’s too much happening in your life. For example, you might agree to one too many tasks and now you must find a way out of your extra commitments. Nevertheless, mischievous Mercury tempts you into thinking there’s a viable shortcut you can take. However, the flirty Gemini Moon’s presence in your 5th House of Fun and Games indicates that you should be able to enjoy the company of others even if you still have a job to finish

 

Pisces Horoscopes

(Feb 19 Mar 20)

Your thoughts are moving so rapidly now that you may not be able to keep up with your own fantasies as they overflow into your reality. But even the most original ideas don’t bring you any closer to a viable solution, so it might be wise to keep the unfinished schemes to yourself for now. Even if it takes another week or so, allow plenty of time for your plans to solidify before sharing them with anyone else. Start by writing everything down that crosses your mind, and then you can make sense of it all later.

Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, December 26th

Although we might try to keep the energy light and easy, the breezy Gemini Moon is no match for the solid sextile between heavyweights Saturn and Pluto today. On one hand, we want to hold on to the holiday spirit in anticipation of the New Year; on the other hand, we’re sobered by real issues that seem to permeate our lives. Instead of being annoyed by the divergent cosmic messages, it’s wiser to practice moving back and forth between them.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may initiate action so quickly today that you don’t even process your feelings. By the time your emotions have worked their way up into awareness, you have already moved on to the next wonderful thing. Instead of jumping from one experience to another, take extra time now to tune in to your heart. Although the message you receive could be inconvenient, it might just inform you of something important that you need to know.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be a bit detached from your actions today, especially if something you must do doesn’t feel right. However, there’s really no need to be afraid of expressing your desires, even if they differ from other people’s expectations. But don’t assume that you will get what you need just by asking. Avoid disappointment by visualizing a variety of outcomes and finding satisfaction with whatever happens.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Something strange occurs today that may catch you completely off guard. The wordy Gemini Moon prompts casual conversation while you avoid what’s really on your mind. However, if your dreams are out of touch with reality, others will likely see through your facade. Unfortunately, you can’t pretend that you’re OK when everyone seems to know more about you than you know about yourself. Shift your focus inward and consider how you can modify your goals to make them more attainable.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s relatively easy to bury your feelings, especially if they don’t fit in with everything else that’s going on in your life. Thankfully, you have an opportunity to bring these emotions out into the open, no matter how much you usually protect your heart. Have faith in yourself and trust that others will honor what you have to say. But keep in mind that you have to do your part by speaking the truth.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your anger feels uncomfortable as it lurks just beneath the surface, waiting for something to trigger it. Your emotions are like a radio station that creates a broadcast signal, yet you can’t hear the song it’s playing. Nevertheless, you know that a significant message is being communicated and you believe the voices are talking directly to you. Don’t worry about the exact words, for they don’t really matter. Release any negativity and let your intuition take charge.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are eager to consider what your friends need today, as if you can empathetically sense what they are feeling. However, the dilemma is that you might not want to tend to others, for you are on your own path — leaving little room to give anyone else what he or she wants. Think about the consequences of your actions before you refuse because there are more reasons to negotiate than you realize at this time.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Even with the current conflict between your head and your heart, you can still feel a deep sense of well-being that is most welcome in your life now. It really doesn’t matter what you should be doing today; self-indulgence might win out over your obligations in the end. So, why bother fighting the inevitable? Go ahead and make time to play since life is too short not to enjoy it.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Take some time away from your personal responsibilities to think about what you want and what you’re willing to do in order to get it. Fortunately, you’ll experience even more pleasure pursuing your goals now. But it’s tricky to see clearly when strong passions motivate your actions. Thankfully, the overall intensity in your life is settling back down. Wait a while longer and you’ll have a much clearer sense of how everything plays out in the long run.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your superhero powers are fully engaged this week as you attempt to express your needs. But it may be inappropriate to just put your feelings out there for all to see. It’s more important to find an acceptable way to get the energy moving. Don’t worry now if you can’t figure out what the future holds. Simply, let your highest ideals guide you through the process. Ultimately, honoring your integrity has the greatest positive impact on your happiness.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You’re mentally alert and crackling like a live electrical wire today. You could even try your hand at expressing yourself poetically now, yet your efforts might fall apart as soon as you attempt to be logical. Nevertheless, it’s still a wise idea to forget about the details for a while. Instead, be as creative as possible and fill in the rest of the story later on.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Unexpected changes continue to unfold as you attempt to integrate them into the basic structure of your life. Thankfully, you may be offered a second chance today to break out of a restrictive situation. Even if this opportunity stirs up stress, act right away and deal with the consequences later. But don’t try to sidestep the truth; being honest really is the best policy.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Make the most of your current energy buzz while it lasts; just don’t assume you can have whatever you want. Your physical needs may be intense now, and you might be tempted to do something that you later regret. Remember that the fleeting enjoyment you receive from short-term pleasures will fade, but visualizing your long-term goals could be enough to pull you through with flying colors.

Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, November 29th

Personal relationships could be a bit easier to manage today now that flirty Venus forms a supportive sextile to mighty Mars. There’s very little resistance to expressing what’s in our hearts when the cosmic lovers align harmoniously, and the Moon’s visit to talkative Gemini reminds us that the willingness to communicate can deepen a friendship. We must make certain that our desires are worth pursuing before we waste a lot of time and money.

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may be feeling your oats today since your key planet Mars receives a supportive nod from vivacious Venus, inspiring you to express your feelings to someone you like. Others will want to bask in the warmth of your good intentions. Don’t hold back; be direct and tell someone special what you want. If you can be patient you might just get what you need.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

A weight is lifting from your shoulders today and you are eager to express your pleasure to those who will listen. Your key planet Venus is supported by physical Mars today, prompting you to step outside of your comfort zone. Venus is reminding you that your friends and family will be there for you if you need them. However, others may not be able to read your mind, so don’t be afraid to show your vulnerability by asking for help.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are excited to get down to work today, only to discover that you first must redo a task you thought was already completed. Although your curiosity is receiving an energetic boost, you don’t need to take a giant leap forward yet. Don’t be in such a hurry; instead, take your time and attend to the details along the way. There’s satisfaction to be gained from a job well done.

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might not be ready to come right out and say what you mean now, but thankfully, your actions can speak louder than any spoken words. Don’t worry about explaining yourself today; just act with decisive clarity, even if you are feeling uncertain. Your current choices will be less important in the future as long as you do something positive in the present moment.

 

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your confidence is strong, and you could inadvertently overwhelm others without even considering the consequences of your actions. You might think everything is copacetic, only to be confused by the unspoken resistance that you now face. Thankfully, managing your relationship dynamics is easy if you don’t promise too much. Turn down your volume today and listen carefully to what others need instead of only thinking about yourself.

 

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although you may be dealing with serious issues, you can feel a calming influence now right in the midst of your personal turbulence. Sensual Venus in your hyperactive 3rd house is harmonizing with fiery Mars, and this delightful combination encourages you to act on your desires and move closer to your goals. Trust your instincts today and do what feels right.

 

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re anything but indecisive about your emotions now. You’re sure about what you want and will do whatever it takes to reach satisfaction. Today’s wonderful state of affairs comes from several supportive aspects to your key planet Venus. This grace period won’t last long, so it’s perfectly fine to derive pleasure from it while you can.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

When sexy Venus is in your sign, you are even more inclined to delve into the shadows as you seek the magic that often is shrouded in darkness. Today you have a desire to go even deeper, as Venus dances with physical Mars. The only thing that can stand in your way now is you; buried treasure awaits your discovery so face your insecurities and start digging.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may feel as if you’re being pulled in opposite directions today as you slide into the unfamiliar realms of your emotions. You’re intuitively guided to leave the world of logic to discover a deeper meaning that words cannot reach. But simultaneously your fear of the unknown is stirred, tempting you to run back to the safety of your rational mind. Don’t succumb to the easy way out or you will miss an opportunity for a rich experience.

 

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Don’t play the role of a controlling boss today, even if you have the authority to do so. Your recent efforts have clearly made your case and now it’s time to let others integrate your guidance or go forward on their own accord. Either way, you must recognize the need to step back. Instead of trying to micromanage everything, take advantage of your free time to do something special for yourself.

 

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s challenging to maintain a peaceful state of mind today, even if most things seem to be running smoothly. Your current problem may be exacerbated by close friends who could be exerting control over you. Your best strategy now is to talk about anything that is bothering you since bringing your fears into the open should help dissipate them, allowing you to relax and enjoy yourself more fully.

 

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Even if you are criticized by your peers today, accept their feedback with a smile. Chances are they are acting out of kindness rather than hostility. However, your sensitive nature could get in the way of an otherwise positive interaction, so try not to take things so personally. Changing your attitude helps you appreciate constructive criticism which in turn enables you to be more effective in the days ahead.

The Wicca Book of Days for Aug. 4 – August Augustus

The Wicca Book of Days for Aug. 4

August Augustus

 

When Rome was regulated by the calendar of Romulus, the month that we now know as August was called Sextile, and was the sixth month of the year(it became the eighth month under the calendar of Numa). Just as Quintilis was renamed Iulius or Julius, in honor of Julius Caesar, so Sextilis was eventually dropped in favor of Augustus, the individual so whom we refer whenever we say “August” today being the Emperor Augustus (63 BC – AD14), who ordered the change in around AD 8. The first emperor of Rome, Augustus (which means “imperial” in Latin) was born Gaius Octavianus

 

Th Emperor

Meditate on the major-arcana Tarot card of the Emperor (IV). This card, which depicts a dignified older man, crowned, enthroned, and holding his imperial regalia, signified masculine power and worldly authority, as well as absolute will and achievement.

Your Daily Horoscopes for August 2nd

It’s easier to ask for what we want today as the Sun in expressive Leo forms an anxious semisquare with romantic Venus. An optimistic Sun-Jupiter sextile further encourages us to take a risk for love. However, physical Mars aligns with dreamy Neptune, adding confusion to the mix. We may have confidence at first, but lose steam throughout the day. Fortunately, the intelligent Aquarius Moon gives us glimpses of clarity so we know how to proceed.
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Quirky expressions of energy may be motivated by very straightforward desires today. But even if you know what you want, it’s difficult to put your feelings into words. Try not to judge yourself too harshly if you give up before you can make someone understand you. Knowing when to back off reduces the stress for everyone. Being patient helps your cause now; remember communicator Mercury ends its retrograde phase next week and things will begin to turn around.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You believe that life should be simple, but it’s not. Your current work situation may be causing tension, prompting you to worry about your financial circumstances. You can make it all work out, but the solutions won’t be what you expect. Take the initiative and talk about your dilemma, since clear communication must be a key component of your strategy today.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You excel as a communicator, but you have been holding back some of your thoughts recently. You may be getting bored with this self-restraint because you’re feeling charged up and ready for some fun. However, others might resist your plans if you push too hard or move too quickly. There’s no need to upset anyone with your sense of urgency. You will be more successful getting what you want if you continue to take your time and proceed with sensitivity.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

It seems as if you need to concentrate on taking care of yourself now, but you might not know how. Although someone may not be giving you what you want, there’s no reason to think you’ll remain unfulfilled. You could scare off others if you appear desperate, so acting in a self-sufficient manner is a smarter approach. When you take decisive action on your own behalf, those around will be more likely to respond supportively.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You feel more connected with your heart now, but a close friend or partner might think you’re self-absorbed. Unfortunately, you could become fixated on getting something that you want. You may not realize how much of a negative impact your neediness has on those around you. Thankfully, your personal relationships deepen when you trust your instincts without pushing others too far.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may believe that you’re building your future on a solid foundation today, yet your plans are not as grounded in reality as they seem. The good news is that your confident yet unrealistic vision of what’s ahead could actually turn out to be what you get if you’re willing to follow through with hard work. Don’t let yourself get discouraged if you experience a setback; just pick yourself up and try again. Success comes to those who don’t give up.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

There’s relationship tension brewing today, but it’s hard to know what to do about it. Your key planet Venus is in whimsical Gemini now, putting you in touch with your inner butterfly. It’s easy for you to flit around an issue without fully engaging it. Although you may get fired up with energetic Mars in your sign, its alignment with nebulous Neptune later this evening lessens the stress all the way around. Be patient; you should be able to refocus your intentions tomorrow.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may be seeking ways to express your individuality at home today with the Moon currently visiting your 4th House of Family. Although the Moon’s harmonious trines with hot Mars and cold Saturn prompt you to act in a more thoughtful and gracious manner, you’re not interested in living your life on stage now where you can be judged by others. Nevertheless, you’re capable of doing nearly anything as long as you know exactly what role you play in the larger picture.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

This is your kind of day, even if there is a difficult emotional issue that needs to be resolved. On one hand, you feel as if your future is opening up before your eyes, in spite of the current dilemma. On the other hand, there are so many choices that you’re uncertain of which way to go. Fortunately, you can take the pressure off the relationship tension by focusing on long-range goals instead of your more immediate concerns.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You finally have a clever way to handle an outstanding financial concern, but achieving real progress may be harder than you think. Fortunately, your logic is sound; trusting your analysis of the current situation is a wise idea. But instead of swinging into motion right away, let things continue to develop for a few days before taking action. Giving yourself a little more time can turn a brilliant plan into a strategy for success.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might be distracted today by someone close to you as demands of a friend or co-worker prevent you from doing something that you really want to do. It may seem as if there is no immediate way out of this conflict, but beneath the surface tension is your firm belief that everything will somehow work out for the best. Thankfully, a positive outcome is likely, but allow a few extra days before you request to revisit the conversation.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It feels as if everything is up in the air now, and there’s no quick release button to push that gives you an easy way out of the current tension. Your logic won’t lead to a solution but, paradoxically, your dreams might. Instead of seeking a concrete answer to your questions, allow your fantasies to take you along for a ride. Without the stress of having to find an immediate resolution, your imagination is free to show you exactly what you need to know at this time.

Daily General Horoscopes for July 24

Today is fraught with the challenges of erratic energy. The socially savvy Libra Moon helps us handle an unexpected situation, but the Moon’s dissonant alignments with transformational Pluto and Uranus remind us of the larger changes that are again upon us. Thankfully, a supportive Mercury-Jupiter sextile boosts our confidence while a late-night quincunx from the Sun to illusory Neptune makes it hard to know if we’re really making progress.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You want to believe the best about others now, yet you could be led off course by your incorrect interpretation of their intentions. Unfortunately, your willingness to accept people at face value can create problems. Although everything might truly be fine, it’s still helpful to moderate your optimism. Being realistic about your relationships prevents setting yourself up for disappointment. Instead of pinning your hopes on anyone else, just express yourself clearly and move on.

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You might have unrealistic expectations about what you want to accomplish at work today. Although you’re wise to be cautious about the situation appearing disarmingly good, there’s no reason to be overly negative, either. As long as you remain practical now, everything should work out OK. Maintaining integrity is your ticket to success.

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your key planet Mercury harmoniously sextiles optimistic Jupiter today, enabling you to see the big picture and inspire others. This visionary outlook encourages you to solve a pressing problem, but you also might be tempted to minimize the upcoming challenges. Don’t exaggerate your ability to handle everything by yourself; be smart and ask for help when you need it.

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You might spend extra time reminiscing about childhood memories that are stimulated by something that happens at home today. Even if you must go to work, it’s difficult to shake off these powerful recollections, whether they are mildly irritating or sweetly nostalgic. Enjoy your fantasies, but make sure to find your way back to the present moment as soon as you can. Revisiting the past is only useful if you apply what you learn to your current circumstances.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The people in your immediate surroundings are your greatest supporters now, but you have to invite them to help or you might miss the benefits of what they could offer. Don’t pretend that you are more self-sufficient than you truly are. It is your vulnerability that sets the stage for the magic to happen.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your key planet Mercury forms a cooperative sextile with philosophical Jupiter today, increasing the potential to inspire others with your words. Your insights offer workable solutions to problems that have reached an impasse. Trusting your instincts should guide you toward an acceptable resolution for all involved.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your sweet charm is your best tool today as you make the best of a tough situation. The reflective Moon in your sign arouses your emotions and you’re able to use this to your advantage. Covering up your feelings isn’t a sensible strategy; express them naturally and let the events of the day flow wherever they take you. Thankfully, you can effectively say what’s on your mind while still being kindhearted in your interactions with others.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s not a big surprise; others know that you are hiding some of your emotions. And it’s quite likely that you could be holding a wild card up your sleeve. Your intuition tells you to enjoy everything while you can, but an irrepressible smile on your face will likely give your secret away. Nevertheless, wait until you’re ready before you share your news.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may be inclined to concentrate on the social aspects of your job now, rather than paying attention to a specific task in front of you. Fortunately, you’re less constrained by your previous commitments so you can enjoy your time with others, even in a professional situation. Just remember that this doesn’t mean you should let your obligations slip. Finding the proper balance between work and play is your best bet.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might finally receive peer recognition for your hard work or maybe even get a long-awaited raise. Your regular caution is dissipating now. In fact, you could turn today’s event into something more than it really is. Bask in the light of recognition while it shines on you, but remember that things can quickly return to normal. Nevertheless, the positive feelings are yours to hold on to forever.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It seems as if there are fewer restraints on your life today, yet you ultimately still have to answer to the same authorities as before. It’s just that you can see more options now and are eager to start exploring them. Be careful that you don’t overextend yourself. Consider where you want to go before you agree to a plan that ends up taking you somewhere completely different.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You want to be fair, but you may have already made up your mind based on what someone else said. Unfortunately, your inflexibility could close the door on a conversation that’s waiting to happen. Thankfully, the Moon’s presence in your 8th House of Intimacy increases your desire to delve beneath the surface issues. Get the ball rolling; intense discussions can lead to creating common ground, especially if you are open to changing your mind.

New Moon Report for July 21 – Jupiter sextile Uranus

New Moon Report

by Jeff Jawer

Jupiter sextile Uranus

Saturday, July 21, 9:04 pm PDT, Sunday, July 22, 12:04 am EDT

Innovation is spurred with this mind-expanding aspect. Visionary Jupiter in multi-faceted Gemini is open to innumerable ideas and this smart sextile from brilliant Uranus in Aries keeps them coming. Intuition is highly active within a week of this transit, but the excitement of discovering a new concept can incite careless speech. Take some time to digest fresh concepts before committing to act on them or trying to sell them to others. This may be a time of genius, but it’s wise to consider these insights provisional until they’re researched and tested in the real world.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, July 14

Although everything might seem in order, we need to pay close attention to details today as mischievous Mercury begins its 3-week retrograde phase. Fortunately, Mercury’s supportive sextile to sweet Venus helps to gloss over the rough spots. The Moon’s shift into interactive Gemini at 8:26 am EDT adds more noise to the day. Meanwhile, a late night Sun-Saturn square reminds us that instant karma will get us if we wander too far off course.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are often on to the next activity before you are even finished with the current one. However, you understand the advantage of slowing down today and you’re willing to see a job through to the end. Nevertheless, growing bored can still be a problem now if things aren’t moving along quickly enough for you. Accept delays as part of the process and stick with the task at hand, even if you would prefer to be doing something new.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You are in touch with your own strength of purpose today and are certain you can overcome any setbacks that arise. However, feeling confident isn’t enough; you must reconsider your basic assumptions even if it means going back to the beginning. Starting a project over allows you to build a more solid foundation that can support whatever comes next. Do it now while you have time; if you let this opportunity pass, you may regret it later on.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

It’s difficult to hide your feelings now that the Moon is back in your sign. You might believe that it’s more efficient to keep interpersonal communication within the safe realms of rational thinking while steering clear of illogical emotions. But taking an objective approach won’t enable you to talk your way around the obstacles in your path. Slow down and review a full range of alternative strategies before choosing a course of action.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You are lighthearted one moment and serious the next as you remember some of the profound emotional transitions that you have experienced over the last few years. You’re ready to move on, but you still may be overly sensitive to your recent past with unresolved feelings weighing heavily on your mind. Revisiting childhood memories helps you to reframe your own history so you can do something brilliant in the current moment.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You could run into a few snags today. A recent disappointment might seem like it’s a big deal, but Mercury retrograde in your sign tells a slightly different story. You are being given time to review the details of what led you to the present moment. This isn’t time for rest, so examine how the current blockages are symbolic of your own feelings. Awareness is the key; once you understand your role in creating the present situation, then you can steadily push on through to the other side.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It may seem as if the public spotlight has found you now, but you might prefer to hide from view. You are more likely just to accept the responsibilities that are heaped upon you and withdraw from others while you do your work. But if you have control issues and continue to do everything on your own, your ambitious strategy could backfire. Acknowledge that you need to be a part of a larger group, tribe or family. It really does take a village.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are experiencing an unusual mixture of Saturn’s hard, cold reality and the whimsical fantasies of today’s breezy Gemini Moon. You’re very serious about your philosophy on life and might have to make choices now that put you in an emotionally vulnerable position. There’s nothing wrong with having lots of acquaintances in your life. Just don’t let your limited thinking get in the way of transforming a casual friendship into something more meaningful.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You can feel the weight of responsibility on your shoulders now as you take on more than is required. It helps to examine what your past has to do with your current eagerness to help others, even if they haven’t asked for it. Compassion is surely a gift, but codependence is not a viable path to happiness. Heal others by first forgiving and healing yourself.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Stand up and stretch your wings; it’s time to claim your power. However, if you find yourself involved in a simple struggle for control, step back and take responsibility only for what is yours. You really don’t have to win an argument, since the price can be too great. Turn the challenge into an opportunity to learn something about yourself as you handle the resistance with courage and grace.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

The weekend brings relaxation for some people, but not so much for you. You are a worker bee today and there are just too many things to do around your hive. It may even feel like a day of judgment and, naturally, you want it to be called in your favor. Apply yourself diligently, but avoid any self-criticism. Continue to work as hard as you can while remembering that you’re in it for the long haul. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might believe that your relationship life is improving, but you’re still afraid of crashing into a wall. Try not to get too discouraged if you have to deal with a miscommunication. A misunderstanding with a loved one can gobble up valuable time if you take it as a sign of defeat. But you should be able to accomplish what’s necessary once you realize that the current events are clues about the work you have yet to do.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It’s time to cool off this weekend and re-evaluate what you want from your closest relationships. You may be more analytical than usual and less emotionally attached to the outcome. It’s not that you are ready to give up; it’s just that you can see the futility of trying to control someone else’s feelings. Set priorities and give yourself extra time to accomplish your current goals.

New Moon Report for January 22

by Jeff Jawer

New Moon in Aquarius

Sunday, January 22, 11:39 pm PST, Monday, January 23, 2:39 am EST

The New Moon in brainy Aquarius opens minds to fresh ways of seeing and enlightens us with brilliant ideas. Broadening visions of the future can reveal unexpected professional opportunities and help establish strategies for meeting long-term goals. Enthusiasm may rise and fall with skeptical Saturn and optimistic Jupiter’s 90-degree squares to this lunation. A supportive sextile from innovative Uranus in Aries, though, reveals alternative ways to express ourselves and contribute to the well-being of the community.

The Aquarius New Moon is like entering a laboratory where objective thinking permits us to observe life without prejudice or prejudgment. Learning comes with sudden flashes of insight that arise from being in unfamiliar positions. Stepping outside our comfort zones feels alienating, yet exploring alternatives permits new vistas of awareness to open.

Your Daily Horoscopes for December 29th

We are forced into the shadows of unknown territory as the Sun conjuncts regenerative Pluto, establishing a powerful tone for today. Magically, the most profound changes, such as a caterpillar’s mysterious metamorphosis into a butterfly, occur hidden in the dark. The imaginative Pisces Moon forms a supportive sextile to Pluto and the Sun, further intensifying our feelings. Meanwhile, otherworldly septiles remind us of how much we don’t know.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It’s difficult to relax now because you’re likely to push up against deep resistance to change. Although you’re quick to blame others for your frustration, it originates within you. You might bury your head in the sand and pretend that you cannot understand what’s happening, but denial won’t solve anything. Instead, confront your fears so you can get to the source of your own psychological melodrama. Awareness is the first step in making positive change.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your fantasies may take you for an intense trip through your fears today, yet you could come out the other side with a much more positive perspective. Still, this isn’t a light and easy journey, because there aren’t any guarantees that your current transformation will succeed. However, it’s not important to overcome all the negativity at once. Take time to assess your strengths and weaknesses so you can prepare for the future with a realistic outlook.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re more eager than usual to explore what’s beneath the surface in your attempt to understand your feelings now. The most meaningful emotional treasures are hidden deep under the veneer of social etiquette. However, you may become so fixated on the potential rewards that you push too hard. Unfortunately, your obsessive behavior today could upset a relationship. Take time to moderate your need for change with sufficient patience to allow the current situation to transform at a natural pace.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may feel as if you’re giving birth to a whole new way of relating to others now, but this change comes with its own share of stress. In order to reinvent yourself you must confront someone’s control issues, especially if you are growing in ways that appear to threaten the status quo. On the other hand, you might be the one who is stuck, and you don’t appreciate anyone meddling in your affairs. However, there’s no need to hold on to the past now; it’s slipping away from you whether you like it or not.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re ready to go ahead with your plans now, even if you’re receiving mixed signals from everyone else involved. However, it isn’t a good strategy to push your agenda onto anyone else. Instead of progressing toward your goals, you could inadvertently agitate unnecessary emotional conflict. Just keep in mind that you may need to proceed on your own if your friends and acquaintances don’t understand your current passion.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You’re so concerned with making everything perfect now that you tend to plan more than is necessary. Unfortunately, placing too much attention on the details can spoil the fun by taking the spontaneity out of the day. Avoid getting swept into an unnecessary power struggle just because you believe that your way is the only way. Lessen the pressure on the current circumstances by consciously choosing acceptance over fear.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Someone’s unspoken feelings can mess things up today, even if it seems safer in order to avoid conflict. Unfortunately, the hidden cost of peace may be higher than you realize since jealousy or possessiveness can stir anger and resentment. The potentially negative energy is tricky to control because sharing can be as problematic as keeping everything to yourself. It’s healthy to talk about what’s happening, but don’t get so intense that you push others away.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may be feeling overwhelmed with how many things you have to do now, but your intensity level is high and you’re committed to do whatever it takes to cross some tasks off your list. Unfortunately, you might disagree with someone who has a different idea of how you should spend your day. Actually, a willful Sun-Pluto conjunction can turn every interaction into a major drama today. Processing your emotions before you react enables you to control the flow of events.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are determined to get what you want today, but it’s wise to recognize that acting in harmony with your core values is more important than material satisfaction. You might reconsider a recent decision and want to modify your course of action, but this can be complicated if you’re already in motion. There’s no need to panic, so allow sufficient time to alter your plans. Keep in mind that you didn’t get to this point overnight, and you won’t be able to change direction in a moment’s notice.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are susceptible to the emotional intensity of today’s Sun-Pluto hook-up because it occurs in your sign. Even the most minor issues can be quickly blown out of proportion as tempers flare and passions erupt. You might become obsessed about having your way now, and you’re not willing to take no for an answer. Unfortunately, you could invite stronger resistance if you are too assertive. Being gentle and persistent is more effective than forcing your point of view on anyone else.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might think that you’ll accomplish more today by sticking to your schedule, but it’s very important to remain flexible with your time. Your enthusiasm may be dampened if unforeseen events in the morning require you to abandon your previous plans. Making commitments in advance is a smart strategy as long as you know when to let go of control. Don’t struggle trying to hold your agenda together; instead, let it fall apart so you can put the pieces back together tomorrow.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your dreams about the future are quite intense now, bringing excitement one minute and worry the next. You’re beginning to realize that your plans are not unfolding as expected. But rather than feeling discouraged or defeated, try to see this as an opportunity to reinvent yourself according to your vision and not someone else’s. Let go of past goals that are no longer meaningful. Instead, get ready to step into the year ahead by setting new priorities for your life.
