Venus Hooks Up With Pluto

astrology006The fiery Aries Moon is totally pumped up today, for it joins energetic Mars to align our actions with our feelings. Additionally, quicksilver Mercury creates an exciting sextile with out-of-the-box Uranus, spicing the day with interesting conversations, unexpected wit and clever repartee. But something else is pulling us into weird places now as sexy Venus hooks up with passionate Pluto in a complex septile that defies rational understanding.

Aries: You need to be on guard today against your own tendency to respond too quickly when someone interacts with you. Your intensity might be mistaken for anger, but then again, you could actually be angry and not even know it. Either way, take a few deep breaths to check in with your inner world before unconsciously spewing your unresolved emotions onto friends and family.

Taurus: You may wake up from one of those really strange dreams where everything appears so vivid, yet it seems to make no sense, however you try to interpret it. If you are reminded of the nonsensical symbols during the day when something odd happens, it instantaneously brings the entire sequence back into awareness. Don’t try to force meaning onto the mysterious messages from your subconscious. They will work their magic if you simply remember them.

Gemini: Your key planet Mercury is stimulated today by erratic Uranus, challenging you to find an even pace to your day. Thoughts and activities come in spurts; you’re busy one moment and then nothing’s happening the next. Nevertheless, you might not have a problem with this kind of energetic flow because you believe there’s a satisfying surprise for you lurking just beyond the horizon.

Cancer: Others may see you as playing the role of a mother hen, but that’s just because you know what to do and are annoyed that no one else seems to have a clue today. You are willing to jump right in and help, but first it’s wise to make sure that everyone really wants your assistance. If you act out of obligation, your good deeds will only be seen as meddling. But if you act out of love, your presence can be a healing force.

Leo: Today you may find yourself dealing with an unresolved issue at work that already crossed your desk once before in the past week or two. You might be irritated that this pesky situation has resurfaced, but rest assured that it’s a blessing in disguise. Take this second chance to reconsider your previous actions. If, however, you cannot change your plans, they still may need a bit of revision later on.

Virgo: Your key planet Mercury is wired for sound today as its sextile to ingenious Uranus fills your head with the freeing music of radical thoughts. It’s difficult for you to sing along on a traditional song; you’d rather go it alone so you can make up something new and different. Don’t compromise for the sake of maintaining harmony. If a group needs to fall apart; let it. Your relationships with others will be reestablished on a much firmer footing after you have some time on your own.

Libra: Your key planet Venus is in touch with strange tales from the shadows of Pluto’s underworld today, but it’s difficult to know what to do with your stories. The best of your recent experiences may not be appropriate for sharing in all social circumstances. Before you start telling tales consider your audience to make sure that you’re not opening your mouth and inserting your foot.

Scorpio: The Moon aligns with your traditional ruling planet warrior Mars in your 6th House of Work, suggesting that you might need to lose your temper in order to establish or reestablish an important boundary. It may be difficult to know when your job is finished, because you are not following a play-by-play instruction book. Take your time and remember that it’s harder to end an old pattern than it is to start a new one.

Sagittarius: Hope may have been the guiding factor for you recently, but you’re entering a phase where the present moment is more significant than any future possibility. Nevertheless, your utopian dreams don’t need to be shelved; they just need to be moved into the here and now. Instead of compartmentalizing everything, it’s crucial now to keep your life from becoming overly complex.

Capricorn: You might not need to follow all the rules to the letter today since it feels as if you are answering to a higher authority. This is not cosmic permission to perpetuate destructive or reckless behavior; it’s just an invitation to be wickedly ingenious. No matter what you do now, remember that it’s still not a good idea to get caught.

Aquarius: Quick-footed Mercury is zapped by your ruling planet Uranus, the Awakener. There’s no reason to attempt to control this thrilling joyride for the mind. Just fasten your seat belt and let your thoughts take you wherever they will. Although it may feel as if nothing useful will come from this exciting little junket, you could return with an altered perspective that can help you deal with a situation that’s in your real life.

Pisces: It’s challenging for you to make choices today, for reality is peppered with ideas and concepts that have leaked through from your imagination. The bad news is that you may not be able to distinguish the truth from fiction. The good news is that this overflow from your dreams surely makes your life more interesting. Don’t force an issue now; if possible wait until tomorrow to decide.

We may Feel Uneasy

astrology005The Aries Moon ushers in a day filled with variety as the Sun enters restless Gemini to begin the new astrological month.

Meanwhile, our imaginations run wild as mental Mercury dynamically squares the approaching triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Someone is frustrated with you, but they are the ones who are wrong this time. You are doing things your way (that is, the right way) and they need to have a little patience if they want it done right.

Gemini (May 21 -June 21): There may be a few too many large personalities in your family or work group for anything to get done today, unless you take the initiative and ensure that everyone works for the common good.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22): You may offend someone in a fit of passion, but you can walk it back pretty quickly if you think it’s important enough. Don’t hold back, that only guarantees an explosion later on!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Try not to let your coworkers or neighbors mooch too much off of you today, you need to marshal your resources much more carefully! You can go back to being everyone’s helper in a few days.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): Even if you’re in the middle of a really intense fling, you need to pull yourself away from romance temporarily today, or integrate it into the rest of your life. You’ve got too much going on to neglect!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): You should try to get your friends to join in your latest cause, whatever that may be. Even if you have to go it alone, you feel that this is something that has to happen for the greater good.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Your new ideas are hotter and hotter today, so much so that you may have to blow off some old projects to get blazing on the new ones! Your creative side is all-powerful when it takes over.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): You need to rearrange your schedule somewhat, if you can’t see why right now, it becomes clear shortly. It’s a great day to ask for a rain check or to postpone inessential appointments.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Push the boundaries of your latest project, you need to really get out there if you want to get noticed! The good news is that you can maintain a certain level of accessability no matter what.
