The intuitive Pisces Moon tricks us into believing that we can bypass language and experience the meaning of life directly. It seems as if we don’t need to think or speak in order to feel connected to what’s happening. But the power of words is strengthened as rational Mercury joins the Sun in steadfast Taurus today. We may not have lots of clever thoughts to bandy about now, but the few we do have align us with what we know we must do.
Aries: You can express your core beliefs today in a refreshingly direct manner, without holding back anything that is important to you. Sometimes, other people don’t agree with your perspective and you are quite willing to discuss your differences. Now, however, you are so in tune with what you are doing that once you announce your position, there’s no need to talk about it more unless you wish to do so.
Taurus: You tend to oversimplify things today and this can create problems, especially if someone else believes that what you said completely describes a situation. There is more going on than meets the eye. Be careful, for a little misunderstanding over a missing piece of information can turn an easy discussion upside down. It will be much harder to untangle it than it is to prevent it.
Gemini: It’s not easy for you when your message is lost in the bright light of the Sun. You may be thinking quite clearly now, but even the most intense thoughts can be obliterated, sunburned by the solar radiation, as Mercury disappears into the light when moving between the Earth and the Sun. Be satisfied with what you know but don’t try to convince anyone else today.
Cancer: Your social life might be overly simplistic in your mind today as the plodding Taurus Mercury-Sun conjunction grinds your thoughts to a standstill. The Moon must stand up to authoritative Saturn, so gather your courage and acknowledge the power of your heart. Don’t worry if others want you to get involved with the group dynamics; only join in if it feels comfortable to you.
Leo: Mercury’s conjunction with the Sun fires up your mind and makes you eager to hear others talk about where they are going in life. Listening to people describe their career goals can, in turn, help to clarify yours. Your mind is bubbling over with sensible ideas, making this a great time to initiate action. Don’t wait to receive an okay about any decisions you need to make before you start.
Virgo: If you are fantasizing about doing something that will take you far from home, consider pulling out all the stops and dream it as large as you can. Think about splurging on an airline ticket and heading off on a great adventure or imagine that you are a student and have an opportunity to study something totally different. It may be difficult to transform your thoughts into reality, but simply knowing that Mercury is retrograde can begin to turn things around again.
Libra: You want to do the right thing, but may be challenged to figure out what that should be today. The easy part — with the Moon in emotional Pisces — is to remember that being compassionate goes a long way to salve any memories of being hurt. Paradoxically, by talking about the details of your past, you can open your heart to others.
Scorpio: The Mercury-Sun conjunction is in your 7th House of Partnerships, smoothing ruffled feathers in most of your interactions throughout the day. Still, you may become annoyed if you discover that someone has already made a decision about whom you can and cannot talk with today. Stand up for your rights, but don’t go overboard in the process.
Sagittarius: Although it’s back to work for most people today, you have a higher level of stress now as you attempt to complete unfinished business from last week. It’s not that there is necessarily so much left over to do; it’s just that you can be overly methodical now and might have a hard time broadening your perspective enough to move past the immediate circumstances. Step outside and get some fresh air if you need to clear your head.
Capricorn: You feel satisfied when you have enough safety and security so that you don’t need to worry about the basics. This can free you up to have more magical connections with others, since you won’t have to constantly focus on those things you must have for survival. Go ahead and take a chance by doing something that you’ve never done before. And don’t bother looking for instructions; just apply your psychic powers and proceed with caution.
Aquarius: It’s hard to break out of your own rigidity now as your need for family connections conflicts with your higher spiritual calling. The problem is that if you only listen to the needs of others, you might be left high and dry with unfulfilled emotional desires. Bring balance into your life by encouraging both the personal and humanitarian aspects of your world to continue to develop.
Pisces: Although you might want to believe that all is well, you aren’t shocked today when you run into an insurmountable obstacle. But you aren’t willing to take no for an answer and can work extra hard to overcome any problems that now surface. Unfortunately, sheer determination may not be enough to bring success. Consider easing up on your timetable or changing your agenda. Being flexible can be your secret weapon, so don’t be afraid to use it.
