So much has changed in such a short period of time that it’s nearly impossible to understand how all the disparate pieces will eventually fit together. The restless Gemini Sun can tire us out but its trine to physical Mars in freethinking Aquarius provides us with an innovative plan along with the stamina to finish whatever we start. Meanwhile, the efficient Virgo Moon forms a practical Grand Earth Trine and ensures success if we play by the rules.
Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn
Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius
Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces
Aries     No matter how complicated interpersonal dynamics are at home or at work, you have an action plan that cuts through all the noise today and aims directly at your target. Thankfully, your logic is sound and your preparation is complete. The Sun’s harmonious trine to superhero Mars in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals arms you with the necessary skills to get the job done efficiently and effectively. Author Brian Tracy wrote, “The future belongs to the competent.”
Taurus     A professional opportunity can lead you in a new direction that turns out to be very beneficial in the long run. Of course, it’s wise to weigh the pros against the cons before making a commitment, but anything you start today could be more profitable than you expect. Just make certain that whatever is presented to you as fact is a true representation of the situation rather than someone’s idealized version of reality. Discernment is the ability to see things for what they really are and not for what you want them to be.
Gemini     Reality is pulling at you from several different directions today and you’re not sure which way to turn. Nevertheless, there’s not a moment to waste if you want to take advantage of energetic Mars harmonizing with the Sun in your 1st House of Self. Fortunately, it won’t require much time at all to do the necessary analysis before making a sensible decision. You are like a surfer now and you must catch the current wave if you’re going to take it for a ride. Novelist Michael Korda wrote, “One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.”
Cancer     It’s tempting to fool yourself into thinking you can coast today and play catch-up tomorrow. Although this enticing plan sounds plausible, it won’t work in your favor. Circumstances might convince you to believe you can get away with doing less now as long as you understand that your responsibilities will not take care of themselves. Reviewing your current priorities is a wise move as long as you back it up with action. Picasso said, “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”
Leo     Chores that you didn’t finish yesterday won’t likely be completed today. Your lack of follow through has nothing to do with being lazy; it’s just that your efforts are likely to go elsewhere. Other people seem much busier than you are now, and you don’t have the heart to turn them down when they ask for help. Your altruism is admirable, but it has a dark side, too. Focusing your attention on everyone else’s business can become problematic if you let your own commitments slide. Columnist Irma Kurtz notes, “Givers need to set limits because takers rarely do.”
Virgo     There are times when your hard work seems for naught, and other times when you barely need to lift a finger and everything falls right into place. The truth of the matter is that reality is somewhere in the middle now; your efforts will be repaid with your success, whether you’re operating where you can be seen or behind the scenes where you can’t. If you’re uncertain about what you should be doing today, go with what’s in your gut. Your first instinct is usually right.
Libra     You can see moneymaking opportunities nearly everywhere you look today, but bringing them to fruition is trickier than you think. You must narrow the width of your path or it will only lead you in circles. Fortunately, you can single out the most sensible target destination if you consciously eliminate others one by one. Craig D. Lounsbrough wrote, “There are often two sets of goals in life: those that we establish, and those that really matter.”
Scorpio     Preparation is crucial; it can make the difference between failure and success. However, efficiency consultants say that too much planning has a tendency to get in the way of organically responding to the changes around you. It’s tough to modify your schedule if your agenda lacks breathing room. Nevertheless, it’s up to you to take the initiative now and focus on making progress. But first, you must reconsider where you are heading. Poet Mary Oliver asks, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Sagittarius     An idyllic day sounds good on paper but won’t likely come to pass. Even if you could take extended time off now, it’s unwise to waste a special cosmic moment which is better suited for initiating action rather than just dreaming about it. Luckily, you can expect assistance from others now if you need it while the radiant Sun in your 7th House of Companions conspires with enterprising Mars. Be ready to head off on your own but be appreciative when someone else shows up at just the right time to lend a hand. The Beatles sang, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”
Capricorn     It seems as if you arrived to the meeting late and some people are already packing up to leave. Nevertheless, you are likely to shine in spite of the circumstances, even if your plans go awry. In fact, you’re often the one with clever contingencies for almost any situation. Do a quick survey in your head to see who is still available, create a short list of your top priorities and get on with the business at hand. Greek philosopher Epictetus wrote, “Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.”
Aquarius     What begins as a conflict today may turn into a mutually supportive interaction. Thankfully, a powerful Sun-Mars trine empowers you to channel the heat of your passion into your 1st House of Personality. People admire your smart decisions and the skillful finesse in which you carry out your plans. Others are willing to bend to meet you halfway if you are willing to do so in return. But there’s no reason to back down from your main position now because you will likely find common ground. Tony Robbins teaches, “Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”
Pisces     You don’t like being backed into a corner, but once you’re pushed too far, someone is likely to receive an unexpected verbal barrage fueled by your frustrations. However, losing your temper won’t accomplish much except annoying those who are the object of your misplaced negativity. Fortunately, you don’t need to let the dynamics reach this kind of tipping point today. The solution requires you to step out of your comfort zone and express your feelings as soon as you feel constrained by anyone who is abusing their power. He who hesitates is lost.
