Saturday, October 22
Expressing our feelings is no easy task today as the emotionally self-protective Cancer Moon creates five separate harsh aspects. Nevertheless, we strive to build relationships by seeking balance while the Sun is still illuminating Libra the Scales. The evocative Moon prances into extroverted Leo at 3:33 pm EDT, followed by the Sun’s entry into extremist Scorpio at 7:45 pm, changing the psychological landscape and driving us to share our hearts.
Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn
Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius
Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces
Aries     It seems as if time is running out, prompting you to make a last-minute effort to reveal your thoughts now. Unfortunately, your message might expose your inner turmoil as you worry about how much to bring out into the open. Instead of wasting energy in logical analysis, just speak from your heart today. Even if your words create confusion, they catalyze a transformational process that will continue over the next few days. Don’t worry about your destination yet; just take the first few steps and figure out the rest along the way.
Taurus     Someone might drive you up the wall today because you want closure on a relationship issue and your friend or partner remains indecisive. You could try everything in your bag of tricks to elicit a real commitment, but gentle prodding, logical debate and even your emotional appeal seem to fail. It’s as if others discovered that their evasive tactics actually weaken your authority now. Thankfully, your patience pays off later in the day when the Sun and the Moon both shift into fixed signs, solidifying everyone’s positions. Good things come to those who wait.
Gemini     Waking up on the wrong side of the bed today could be enough to start your day on the wrong foot. You want to tell others how you feel but you’re not interested in stirring up any trouble. Nevertheless, you can only keep quiet for so long. Naturally, your message is important but so is your delivery. It will be easier to put all your cards on the table once the first one is played. But don’t wait for someone else to speak up; the window of opportunity will close sooner than you expect.
Cancer     You might feel like a Crab out of water today because your emotions don’t seem to fit anywhere you try to put them. However, difficult aspects require you to downplay your needs until the Moon leaves your sign and blasts into lively Leo. Luckily, cosmic help is on the way this afternoon, once the Moon shifts into your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. A wave of confidence empowers you to reveal your feelings without worrying about the consequences. You can’t control other people's actions, but you certainly can control your reactions.
Leo     The longer you hold onto your tension, the harder it is to let it go. Nevertheless, the Moon’s move into your extroverted sign today creates a cosmic opportunity to get something off your chest. Keep in mind that your passionate revelation might be more than your friends and family can handle now. Naturally, you want to give your solo performance one hundred and ten percent, but you’ll make more of an impact if you scale the drama back just a bit. President Harry S. Truman said, “Intense feeling too often obscures the truth.”
Virgo     You wish you could go into hiding today, even if your social calendar draws you out to mix and mingle. Thoughts of solitude lure you away from the maddening crowds and into the confines of your own mind. Ironically, going inward enables you to simultaneously travel outward, all the way to distant galaxies. You may be intrigued with the process of contemplation yet nervous about losing your footing. Joseph Campbell wrote, “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
Libra     You’re reaching the end of one chapter and must tie up any loose ends that you don’t want to carry into the next. Nevertheless, you may be torn between taking care of your own needs now and nurturing those you love. Resolving this conflict might seem impossible until you experience a critical moment today when everything suddenly becomes clear. Don’t hesitate once you see the light; your uncertainty could return if you wait too long to make your move. Action has more value than intention.
Scorpio     You are standing at the edge of a precipice with your future opening before you. You intuitively know that yesterday’s fantasies will become tomorrow’s reality, amplifying your anticipation along with your fears of failure. But this is no time for your faith to waver because your current thoughts are the most powerful influence on whatever happens next. Author Miasha writes, “Don’t dream your life, live your dreams.”
Sagittarius     Exceeding everyone’s expectations can be exhausting at times, but you inadvertently play a significant part in creating your larger-than-life presence. Although you may be ready for some downtime now, it’s difficult to convince others that you’re serious about slipping out of the spotlight to rejuvenate your soul. You might be temporarily lured back into the fray today, but it’s not your responsibility to assume the role of social director. Novelist May Sarton penned, “Solitude is the salt of personhood. It brings out the authentic flavor of every experience.”
Capricorn     People seem overly clingy today, prompting you to distance yourself from them. It’s not that you’re insensitive to their needs; rather you’re afraid of being pulled into someone’s personal drama that’s so deep you can’t climb out. Establishing your boundaries feels like a necessary step in helping anyone else now but it can also create an unnecessary gulf between you and those you love. Nevertheless, you are not required to set yourself on fire to keep others warm.
Aquarius     Quietly go about your business on your own today, instead of spending too much time worrying about what others think. Participating in a group activity is often exhilarating because so much can be accomplished when people work together for a common cause. Nevertheless, you’re more effective now running errands and crossing items off your to-do list without coordinating your efforts with anyone else. Sometimes, those who fly solo have the strongest wings.
Pisces     You know what your happiness depends on, but believe you shouldn’t have to tell anyone today. Those who love you should know what you need without you saying a word. Unfortunately, harboring romantic illusions based on self-imposed silence doesn’t lead to satisfaction. There’s no reason to set yourself up for failure by refusing to communicate. Take Oprah Winfrey’s words to heart: “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
