Thursday, April 27
Working in the garden is a metaphor for our daily routine now that the Sun and Moon are in steady Taurus. The progress of spring growth is dramatic but can’t be rushed. Consistent effort is required to achieve the desired results. However, a stressful alignment between assertive Mars and domineering Pluto indicates a hidden power struggle. The Moon’s shift into versatile Gemini at 9:38 pm EDT reveals new solutions to resolving lingering tension.
Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn
Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius
Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces
Aries     There are many ways to improve your life and today you’re likely to do it by exercising financial control. Your attention naturally gravitates to increasing your income while the Moon is camped out in your 2nd House of Money. However, it’s not just a matter of making a plan because resistance surfaces when you tell others what you’re going to do. Back up a few steps and rethink your approach. Decreasing expenditures may be a more reliable way of boosting your cash reserves now. Ben Franklin wrote, “Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.”
Taurus     You want people to recognize your contribution to the group effort today. But they might not be aware of what you are personally sacrificing in order to be a significant part of the team. Nevertheless, it’s less important to be acknowledged by others than it is for you to see concrete results from your work. Harry S. Truman, a fellow Taurus, wrote, “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”
Gemini     You’re not sure why someone is on your case today, especially since you’re just quietly going about your business. However, you might not be able to see yourself clearly while the obstinate Moon plods through your 12th House of Invisibility. Nevertheless, your current behavior may reveal a hidden agenda that steps on the toes of your coworkers. Michael Foucault wrote, “Where there is power, there is resistance.” The energy lifts later in the day when the Moon shifts into your sign. Thankfully, you will soon see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Cancer     You can rely on your friends and coworkers to support your efforts today. Magically, people seem to show up with the right skill or piece of information just as you need it. Thankfully, the Moon’s receptivity in your 11th House of Networks enables your actions to resonate within your larger group or community. Nevertheless, you might worry that trouble is brewing beneath the surface. There is no reason to be shy; ask questions to bring unspoken feelings out into the open. Author Terry Pratchett wrote, “The best research you can do is to talk to people.”
Leo     Your prime directive today is to seek ways to stabilize your place in your profession or on the job. Happily, the steady Taurus Moon’s presence in your 10th House of Career creates harmonious hookups with powerful Pluto and resourceful Venus, giving you the communication tools you need to accomplish your goal. You can rely on receiving the support you want as long as you don’t step into anyone else’s territory. You may not be looking for trouble, but be prepared to find it if you push your agenda too far.
Virgo     Sometimes taking a major trip is tricky for you detail-oriented Virgos because balancing the big picture with the specifics can be challenging. Happily, the practical Taurus Moon stabilizes your 9th House of Faraway Places, inspiring you to dream about an upcoming vacation. You don’t need to make concrete plans yet; just imagining the journey is enough to put a smile on your face. Oprah Winfrey said, "The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams."
Libra     You are relentless in your drive to uncover the facts today. Perhaps something puzzling at work is pointing to a whole layer of intrigue you are not yet aware of. Or maybe a close friend or partner’s behavior has raised your eyebrows because it doesn’t fit in with what you know. Go ahead and delve into the unknown, even if it makes you uncomfortable. Albert Camus wrote, “Always go too far because that’s where you’ll find the truth.”
Scorpio     Hiding your annoyance becomes more challenging as someone close to you grows more obstinate. You fully respect people who passionately defend a cause, but the fixed Taurus Moon’s visit to your 7th House of Others seems to make everyone stubborn for no reason at all. Unfortunately, engaging in a discussion to resolve the issue will likely only deepen the conflict, rather than squash it. It takes courage to walk away but sometimes it’s the most intelligent strategy. Coco Chanel said, “Don’t spend time beating a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”
Sagittarius     People seem to be moving faster today and you’re not sure you can keep up with them. Acknowledging that your agenda is different from everyone else’s allows you to detach and set your own pace. You won’t likely run ahead of the pack while the plodding Taurus Moon is hanging out in your 6th House of Service. Nevertheless, you still have an excellent chance of reaching your destination as long as you don’t get swept up in anyone’s drama. Author Dodinsky wrote, “You can find inspiration from others, but determination is solely your responsibility.”
Capricorn     You’re ready for a bit of lighthearted fun today, but you could anger others if you just run off and leave them to their own devices. Ironically, you are better scheduling your playtime if you are serious about making it happen. You need structure wrapped around your unstructured time now or you might feel lost. It’s easier for you to be spontaneous when it’s written on your calendar. Fortunately, once you can justify your exit, you’re not likely to look back. Sometimes an “oops” is better than a “what if” when it comes to personal satisfaction.
Aquarius     It’s much easier to head out into the world today if you know that your family is safe and everything is stable on the home front. The back-to-basics Taurus Moon is bringing a new wave of dependability to your 4th House of Emotional Security. Although you can count on those closest to you, the more casual interactions still stir up unrest. Nevertheless, the most difficult conversations will produce the most amazing breakthroughs. Psychologist Alfred Adler wrote, “The chief danger in life is that you may take too many precautions.”
Pisces     You’re tired of bouncing around from one task to another and look forward to settling into one project today. The solid Taurus Moon creates its own momentum, making it difficult to keep changing your focus now. Although you want to stay on a single topic, Luna is busy dancing in your 3rd House of Distractions, pulling conversations hither, thither and yon. It’s best to accept the current energy as it is, for this cosmic conflict won’t likely dissipate until the weekend. Lao Tzu wrote, "Anticipate the difficult by managing the easy."
