Aries

There’s no reason to sit around analyzing a situation today. You react emotionally to an event and then take immediate action without endlessly running through the facts again and again. You’re not interested in wasting valuable time when you know reexamining the data will only give you the same conclusions.

Trusting your intuition ensures that your moral self-righteousness won’t stand between you and the right behavior. Author Elizabeth Gilbert wrote, “You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.”

Taurus

Your practical plans and high ideals drive a quiet desperation today, especially if you think your moment of opportunity won’t last. Oddly enough, your panic is counterbalanced by your firm belief that linearity does not exist and it’s an illusion created by the human mind.

Nevertheless, your feelings are real and you must take them into consideration when deciding your next move. Making a list of the pros and cons enables you to maintain your center of gravity. Poet Robert W. Service wrote, “It’s the steady, quiet, plodding ones who win in the lifelong race.”

Gemini

Rather than relying on the motivation you receive from your visions of the future, all the signals you need will be apparent in the ever-changing now — if you know where to look for them. Having a sense of purpose empowers you to respond with confidence to a sudden change of plans.

Following the path of least resistance is unadvised because your feelings will just flow downstream without any impact. Instead of allowing your mind to wander, bring your thoughts back to the current moment where you can influence the course of events. Decisions define destiny.

Cancer

You stand to benefit from the bold actions of others, but you must let someone else take control or you’ll never know what they might offer. It’s tempting to just put a smile on your face and hope that no one notices your real feelings.

Don’t be so fast to hide the same emotions that are your greatest strength. When you light up with your full spectrum of experience, reality will respond in kind. Steve Martin said, “Be so good they can’t ignore you.”

Leo

Although you might fall in love with someone or something today, you won’t likely share your feelings with others now. Oddly, you can’t find a voice to sing your praises, but there’s no problem in putting on a show if anyone threatens your friend or family member.

Just remember, pumping a little sweetness into your performance clears your path to creative self-expression. But don’t ramble on endlessly or you will lose your audience. Cicero wrote, “Brevity is a great charm of eloquence.”

Virgo

Someone who crosses your path today might wish they left you alone. Although you’re not looking to start a fight, you are ready to finish one, if necessary. You are a force to be reckoned with while you’re at the top of your game, and you won’t suffer a fool that is cruising to raise your ire.

Nevertheless, demonstrate your magnanimity by treating your enemies with compassion. Turning the other cheek can be a sign of strength. The Dalai Lama said, “My religion is kindness.”

Libra

Your friends appear to be very receptive to your craziest ideas today, but they are particularly interested in your practical innovations. Oddly enough, it’s the unrealistic thoughts that are the most intriguing to you now. You’re in love with the beauty which can only be found in dreams, yet it still makes you sad when it fades in the light of awareness.

Fortunately, you could ameliorate your disappointment by applying your idealism when pursuing more pragmatic goals. The truth is you’ll be happier in the long run with something tangible to show for your efforts.

Scorpio

You are walking a funny line between two separate existences today, with one foot in an emotional world and the other in the realms of thought. Although flirting with this duality broadens your perspective, it also prevents you from committing to either modality now.

You are totally immersed in your feelings, yet oddly detached from them. Allowing the intensity to rise and fall in its own rhythm empowers you to move through your day with grace. The less you try to control the flow of change, the easier it is on everyone involved.

Sagittarius

You are uncharacteristically fascinated with your feelings today as you take a deep dive into the origins of your emotions. You might find yourself recollecting stories of your childhood, your parents and your school days.

But your perspective may be turned inside out when you stumble on a memory that was dormant for years and alters your current view of a relationship dynamic. Bringing the past into the present is an act of magic that can unleash powerful forces for improving your life.

Capricorn

You can’t help but ponder whether you are fully deserving of the impressive accolades you’re currently receiving. Although you feel wonderfully supported by your peers, a recent decision could have a negative impact on the present circumstances.

It’s no fun to face the consequences of a past action that cannot be undone. Nevertheless, you can live responsibly by showing up in each moment as if you are part of the universe. In fact, it’s your only sensible choice.

Aquarius

You are a particularly versatile wordsmith today; you are both clever and evocative in your self-expression. You’re able to execute a successful defensive strategy if someone oversteps your boundaries because your current clarity sets the tone for all other interactions.

Luckily, this might truly be your lucky day at work but you must initiate decisive action for the best results. Opening your mind is more effective if you also open your heart. Nothing ventured; nothing gained.

Pisces

Your theme song today could be Stephen Foster’s “Beautiful Dreamer.” In fact, you might not be able to shake your night visions, even after you are awake for the day. Nevertheless, you are well versed at moving around in the dream space and in morphing fantasies into reality.

You know better than most that the fine line which divides the real from the ideal is an arbitrary one. Friedrich Nietzsche wrote, “The real world is much smaller than the imaginary.”
