charlizetheron_seanpean001

Sign of the month Leo is independent but they need something to control and someone to admire them and appreciate them. The zodiac sign of Leo has the symbol of ‘The Lion’. They are fully capable of being successful on their own but they are much happier if they have an audience and a following of people who look up to them. They would prefer not be alone. People are attracted to Leo’s zest for life and their warm spirit. They have the ability to lift up one’s spirits and provide encouragement when times are rough. Their enthusiasm attracts people, Leos are social butterflies, not because they want to be but because people always naturally gravitate and surround the Leo. Leos are very difficult people to not like, they are usually fairly balanced, realistic people. They never dwell on the past and they will think you are strange if you do. Some Leos might be too caught up in themselves and be very self-centered but they are never too self-absorbed to help anyone who needs it. They pamper their friends and treat them well. A Leo is the ultimate friend. They do not hold a grudge and they are very forgiving. They have respect and understanding of people’s differences. They are in love with their pride and ego and fiercely protect what they believe to be theirs. The lion loves to give advice on how you should manage your life and feels himself to be superior to others. However, his ego is very vulnerable and he will get deeply hurt if you don’t respect his wisdom.

Leonian Sean Penn
Born on August 17, 1960, Burbank, California, US. The idea of being Madonna’s favorite boy toy may have had its appeal, but it grew old for actor Sean Penn (they married in 85 and divorced in 89). Occasionally slugging it out with photographers and film extras has gotten Penn into plenty of trouble, but luckily for worldwide audiences, he seems to have outgrown his bad-boy ways and settled into some serious acting (not to mention a serious relationship and a family with actress Robin Wright Penn). While early flicks such as Bad Boys and Fast Times at Ridgemont High got Penn noticed, its the actors impassioned performances in Dead Man Walking, The Thin Red Line and Mystic River that have earned him critical raves. What do the stars foretell for our favorite bad boy?Born under a Leo Sun, Penn simply has to be the boss. This may have been the big problem in his marriage to Madonna, since shes also a Leo with a yen for dominance. Penn has to be in control and hes going to be a loudmouth while hes at it. True to his Leo Sun, the actor is much the authoritarian, although hes also creative, vital and courageous to the max. Oh, and he loves being center stage!Due to his Cancer Moon, Penn has a keen sense of family and truly enjoys parenting, a quality reinforced by his Leo Sun. The flip side of this Cancerian energy is a tendency to brood. He is very emotionally sensitive and may withdraw into a protective shell when things become too intense. With his Mercury in Leo, Penn is pegged as a master storyteller, blessed with dramatic flair. Since his Mercury is Square Neptune, however, the actors stories may have a surreal quality to them. Is he telling the truth or making things up? Even Penn may not know for sure, but this aspect may be the one that attracts him to such strange and surreal films as Hurlyburly and U Turn.

His Venus in Virgo marks Penn as one who is mannered in the game of love. No Romeo here! He takes his time before committing himself to anyone, but once he does, it will be hard for him to disconnect. Since his Venus is Conjunct powerful Pluto, the actor is very charismatic and desirable to the opposite sex. His Venus is also Square Mars, meaning Penn may not be quite as warmly affectionate as his lovers might prefer. Although theres a strong attraction between the sexes here, the actor will be clueless as to his partners needs, the kind of thing that could lead to problems down the road. Having Mars in Gemini is the key to Penns success as an actor. Communication is his forte, and he knows how to use words to his own (great advantage). He can be witty, intense, chatty and intellectual, and he loves a good debate. Since his Mars is Square Pluto, the smart barbs get even sharper. Penn wont yield or submit to anyone!

Leonian Charlize Theron
Born on August 7, 1975, Benoni, South Africa. The days of being discovered at a Hollywood soda fountain may be long gone, but apparently you can still catch an agents eye, if youre stubborn enough to put up a fuss in a bank on Hollywood Boulevard. Just ask Charlize Theron. Two weeks after she arrived in Los Angeles, a bank teller on that famous strip refused to accept Theron’s out-of-state check. She gave the teller a piece of her mind and ended up walking out without the cash, but with something far more important in her pocket: the card of the agent who would give her star-studded career it’s start. It didn’t take long for Theron to gain a reputation as a box-office success. She got her first major break playing opposite Keanu Reeves in The Devil’s Advocate, then starred in The Cider House Rules, The Legend of Bagger Vance and The Italian Job. It was in Monster, however, while playing the role of convicted serial killer Aileen Wuornos, that Theron gained the critical acclaim her Leo Sun and Moon have always craved. Theron was born on the day of a New Moon in Leo, the sign that craves appreciation and applause more than any other. New Moons bring the Sun and Moon together in the same sign, uniting the inner and outer sides of the owners personality in pursuit of the same goal. The end result is that what you see is quite literally what you get. Leo is the sign of the performer, and Leo rules the heart, so above all else, Leo absolutely must know that it is loved. Its not surprising, then, that Theron has the ability to throw herself so completely into her roles. Shes able to transform an internal, emotional need for mass love into the external ability to entertain the public, and earn the adoration and appreciation her soul lives for.

But speaking of transforming, its the strong influence of Neptune, the great pretender, that gives Theron the ability to seamlessly shape-shift into such a wide variety of characters. For her role in Monster, it was this deceptive planet that helped Theron to hide her lovely, willowy Venus in Virgo. She packed on 30 pounds, wore a set of badly gnarled prosthetic teeth and was plastered with heavy makeup that transformed her perfect complexion into a sun-damaged disaster. All of that might certainly be credited to the talents of a makeup artist and director, but if Theron hadnt been enough of a chameleon to pull off the charade, no amount of makeup or coaching would have done the job. Determination is what keeps any of us on our life path, and in Therons case, that quality is due to the same aggressive, determined Mars in Taurus that got her noticed to start with, a combination that ensures she absolutely will not give up until she has to. This will be the planetary combination that enables Theron to enjoy her place in the spotlight, long-term, and allows audiences to enjoy her work.

Leonian Christian Slater
Born on August 18, 1969 in New York, US. Following a run on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live, he made his Broadway debut as the lisping Winthrop Paroo opposite Dick Van Dyke in the 1980 revival of The Music Man. Additional Broadway credits include Merlin, Macbeth, Side Man, and The Glass Menagerie. He made his big screen debut in 1985 in the film The Legend of Billie Jean. In 1986, he had a significant role in the movie The Name of the Rose. In 2006 he appeared as the main character in Hollow Man 2 replacing Kevin Bacon as the invisible man, the sequel to Paul Verhoeven’s Hollow Man(2000). The last movie that was commercially successful for Christian slater was Broken arrow. He’s been on a slump since, but is showing promise for making a comback with a few slightly successful movies under his slate in the past few years. In recent years Slater has gone from being a box-office leading man, to starring in direct-to-video films and other low-budget projects. In 2004 he decided to return to the stage, and played Randle P. McMurphy (played on film by Jack Nicholson) in the play One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at the Edinburgh Fringe. He twice contracted chicken pox, delaying the show’s opening.

While continuing to appear in this play in London’s West End, Slater was asked to play the role of John Watson aka Wonko the Sane for the BBC Radio 4 adaptation of So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish, produced by Above the Title Productions. In 2005 and 2006 Slater returned to the stage and London to play McMurphy in Cuckoo’s Nest. Slater is the advertising voice of Panasonic on radio and television ads. On January 20, 2006 Slater was the guest host for an episode in the second series of The Friday Night Project for Channel 4 in the United Kingdom. He appeared in the booth of Monday Night Football on November 6, 2006 for the Oakland Raiders at a Seattle Seahawks game.

Slater has a well tabloid-publicized record of alcohol and drug abuse, and a series of high profile female relationships. He currently resides in London, England. He has two children with ex-wife Ryan Haddon: Jaden Zach Haddon-Slater (b. April 6 1999), and Eliana Sophia (b. August 15, 2001). Slater has a long list of altercations with the police and other authorities. These include: On August 11, 1997, Slater was arrested by police in Los Angeles and charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery. Slater, drunk and high on heroin, punched his then-girlfriend, fashion editor Michelle Jonas, in the face at a party and bit a man who attempted to protect her. Slater did not go quietly, but hid in a stairwell and fought with officers, reportedly shouting, “the Germans are coming and they will kill us!” He then attacked a police officer. All the felony charges against him were eventually dropped. He was sentenced to three months in prison, serving 59 days for good behavior In 2003, his wife, Ryan Haddon, was arrested for beating up Slater at a Hard Rock Cafe while on a trip to Las Vegas and he later received stitches. Slater divorced Haddon in November of 2006 Slater made a cameo in the Joaquin Phoenix directed video “Tired of Being Sorry” for Balthazar Getty’s band Ringside.

Fire is dominant in Christian Slater’s natal chart and endows him with intuition, energy, courage, self-confidence, and enthusiasm! He is inclined to be passionate, he asserts his willpower, he moves forward, and comes hell or high water, he achieves his dreams and goals. The relative weakness of this element is the difficulty to step back or a kind of boldness that may prompt Slater to do foolish things. Like the majority of Earth signs, Christian Slater is efficient, concrete and not too emotional. What matters to him is what he sees: he judges the tree by its fruits. His ideas keep changing, words disappear, but actions and their consequences are visible and remain. Expresses his sensitivity, even if it means revealing his vulnerability. Emotions, energy and communication must not be neglected; concrete action is meaningless if it is not justified by Slater’s heart, intellect or enthusiasm.

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. But we may feel uneasy for another reason as friendly Venus forms an irritating quincunx with austere Saturn. We are uncertain about expressing our feelings for fear of reprimand. Meanwhile, our imaginations run wild as mental Mercury dynamically squares the approaching triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Sometimes you have to speak first, even if someone else has the floor or otherwise thinks they own the conversation. Your energy demands action, and it’s up to you to make it happen quickly.

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!

Leo (July 23 – August 22): You can have fun clipping your nails or filling out online forms, your energy is so good! It’s one of those days when you ought to be able to take care of all sorts of backlogged tasks and errands.

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.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Life is better for you if you hide out for a bit, preferably in plain sight! All you need to do is bury yourself in work, or in a role that very few people take notice of. You should learn a lot!

The Power of Words is Strengthened

astrology004The 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.

This is Cosmic Tsunami

astrology003A dynamic aspect between the two largest bodies in our solar system today can blow in strong winds of opportunity, but whenever the Sun and Jupiter square off, we can also be fooled by placing too much significance on unimportant events. This veritable cosmic tsunami is further powered by Jupiter’s proximity to visionary Neptune. Additionally, the Sun’s supportive sextile to wild and crazy Uranus makes the future seem closer and brighter than it is.

Aries: You can protect your future security by carefully watching your finances now, even if everything looks positive. It’s not that there’s bad news just beyond the horizon; rather, it’s that everything looks so good that you waste money needlessly that could be better spent later on when you are not as flush. Ben Franklin had you in mind when he wrote, “a penny saved is a penny earned.” Just remember to allow for inflation.

Taurus: You could be so fixed in your belief that all will end well that you don’t take care of important business in the present moment. The power of positive thinking goes a long way to making things better, but it doesn’t absolve you from being practical. You have too much at stake; don’t bet your success on improvements in the future. Be here now.

Gemini: Current changes at work may be worrisome at first, but there appears to be a silver lining in the dark storm clouds. It’s hard to stay overly concerned with the instability, for you realize that something is stuck and really needs to be shaken up. You may not be able to see around the next corner, preventing you from being certain about decisions you want to make. It may be wiser now to delay setting new goals and to just live with the uncertainty for a while longer.

Cancer: You may be struggling with meeting your own needs while still remaining an integral part of your team at work. Or perhaps you are trying to find balance between staying connected with your friends, even if their goals currently differ from yours. Your lesson now is about inclusion. There’s no need to back away from your peers or social connections so you can be alone. It’s not an either/or situation; you can do both.

Leo: On one hand, life doesn’t get much better than this. There is potential good news everywhere you look. On the other hand, there might not be a direct path to realize any specific goal. This is like running a gasoline engine on fumes; you can only sustain your optimism on hope for so long. Sooner or later you’ll need some real fuel in the tank. In the meantime, conserve your resources the best you can.

Virgo: You are energized in a very real way, for you can see what’s ahead if you continue to work hard and plan for your future. But the currents may be speeding up now and this can make you nervous, even if it’s also exciting. You want to succeed, but you may be afraid that it won’t last if it all happens so fast that you don’t have a strong foundation. Don’t let your fears get in the way of your success.

Libra: Setting aside your agenda may be the smartest thing you can do today, for the greatest opportunity for a good time might be the one that’s a total surprise. Give yourself permission to take a break from your regular Saturday routine. Doing the same old thing in the same old way may be reassuring, but it could also limit your field of vision, preventing you from being spontaneous enough to have a truly memorable experience.

Scorpio: An unexpected event could turn your day inside out. Even if you were planning on spending a quiet day at home, you will likely be tempted to join your partner or a friend in an activity that is physically active or one that takes you somewhere special. There’s no reason to hold back now; if you do, you could miss the fun.

Sagittarius: You may feel as if your life is undergoing big changes as you ride the currents with excited anticipation. You cannot see where they are carrying you, but you are eager to go on this great adventure as the Sun illuminates spiritual Neptune and your key planet Jupiter. Fears may surface unexpectedly but resistance is futile.

Capricorn: You might want to reassert your control by downshifting for the curves ahead. You may even think about using the emergency brake to bring everything to a temporary standstill. Unfortunately, neither of these tactics will likely bring you the stability you seek. Furthermore, they could throw you into an unmanageable skid as your life seems to spin out of control. Fortunately, you are in no danger now if you simply go with the flow.

Aquarius: This can be an exciting weekend for you, one that gives you a chance to be seen in a very positive light by your friends and family. You are the one who can navigate through the fog now and others may come to you for advice. Don’t tell them what they want to hear; tell the truth as you see it, from your eclectic point of view. Your unencumbered vision is worth more than anything else you can offer today.

Pisces: Your two key planets, expansive Jupiter and nebulous Neptune are being stressed by solar winds today, creating intense displays in your imagination. It’s as if you have your own private light show that illuminates your future in a way you’ve never seen before. Your expectations are high, but don’t assume you’ll win the lottery if you haven’t bought a ticket. You still need to apply yourself if you are to succeed.

See the World From a New Perspective

astrology002The philosophical Sagittarius Moon expands our mental horizons, pushing us beyond our normal boundaries so we can see the world from a new perspective. We try to rationalize whatever we feel because the emotional Moon opposes logical Mercury. But Mercury is retrograde and our thoughts may not be able to stand up to close scrutiny. Luckily the Moon’s fiery trines to sensual Venus and physical Mars now can be a lovely distraction from any challenges.

Aries: This can be the part of the weekend you were waiting for and, fortunately, your patience should pay off. Even if you have chores, you’re likely to figure out how to successfully juggle them with more pleasurable activities as the Moon harmonizes with Venus and Mars, both in your enterprising sign. You may be required to answer to the voice of authority tomorrow, but don’t let that stop you from having a bit of fun today.

Taurus: Questioning your values isn’t a productive activity today, even if a disagreement over money makes you wonder if your priorities need to be rearranged. It feels as if whatever you choose, you’re revealing desires that are not as lofty or as altruistic as others. But comparing yourself to anyone else is pointless; everyone is different. Just be true to yourself in all that you do. If you don’t have integrity, your motives will seem artificially transparent.

Gemini: The Moon in your 7th House of Partners can indicate that others will show up today to encourage you to do more than you wish. The good news is that you might actually agree to someone else’s plan and feel revitalized because of what you accomplish. The bad news is that you might not be interested in taking on anything new and it puts you in an awkward position when you have to be the one to say no. It’s better to be honest now than sorry later.

Cancer: You may surprise yourself today because you are so willing to be involved in someone else’s plan that you aren’t worried about relinquishing control. You may even be eager to take your role as a passenger without trying to be a back seat driver. It really doesn’t matter much what activities are on the day’s itinerary. It’s just the act of doing something new and different now that makes you smile.

Leo: The Moon is in your playful 5th House today, just where you like it to be because you feel justified to pamper yourself. Whether you can find time to soak up some solar rays or take a mini-retreat to a day spa, do something that places you in a relaxing environment. Even a nature walk or a picnic in the park could be enough to recharge your batteries. For now, it really is all about you.

Virgo: Normally you’re the one who is able to do the critical thinking that others cannot. Unfortunately, you are probably not doing so well with careful analysis now, as things look better than they truly are. This isn’t to say that anything is specifically wrong, but be advised that you still might be happier relaxing at home today instead of making any important decisions. Even if you have work to do, give yourself permission to kick back and enjoy yourself.

Libra: Your idea of taking a day off may not include running around doing errands and keeping busy all day. Nevertheless, you might not have time to slow down as much as you want. Fortunately, your willingness to be flexible can be your secret weapon, allowing you to have a fine time while maintaining your hectic schedule. You can always do what you wish on another day.

Scorpio: You have big ideas about what you want to accomplish today, but you won’t make as much progress as you want if you try to do too much. Your energy level is high, giving you the impetus to start off quickly, but you could burn through your reserves faster than you expect. Even if you feel like the energizer bunny, it’s wiser for you to act like the slow and steady tortoise if you want to make it to the finish line.

Sagittarius: It’s hard for you to contain your enthusiasm today, even if you know that it cannot last. You may already be aware that you have some tough issues to deal with next week, but that just makes you want to have some fun right now while you can. Don’t feel guilty about being spontaneous, even if you are shirking your responsibilities. They will still be there when you return, rejuvenated from your enjoyable activities.

Capricorn: Hiding your optimism might be your way of underplaying your hand today. If others know how good you are feeling, then they might expect more from you. But if they don’t see that glint in your eye, you believe that you can get away with more than you might otherwise. Your logic may be correct, but you’ll still have more fun if you just let the good times roll without trying to keep quiet.

Aquarius: This can be a socially uplifting day as others include you in their plans. But it can get somewhat complicated if there are overlapping events. Remember, you cannot be in two places at once, even if you want to maximize the fun. Making choices early in the day will remove some of the stress that can arise when you attempt to juggle too much. No matter how great it all looks, keep in mind that less may truly be better than more.

Pisces: You might have the mother hen syndrome today as you look at others around you and realize that they need your help. But even if your intentions are good, you should examine your motives for wanting to save every lost soul and cure every sick puppy. Being proactive in service is admirable if you are coming from a place of compassion. But if you are seeking attention or approval now, then your assistance may not be as useful as you think.
