It’s time to stop running and face the music; fortunately, your reward for emotional honesty is more clarity about what you need and what you’re willing to pay for it. Nevertheless, resistance from your boss or another authority figure slows you down today, but it’s probably for the best.

You will earn their support if you are precise about your intentions and your goals. There is work to be done and you can achieve more than you imagine if you harness your passion and focus your mental energy. You don’t get what you wish for; you get what you work for.


The knottiest problems may be solved today by your willingness to look beneath the surface. Uncovering underlying causes is the first step toward untangling nearly any puzzle. Fortunately, you’re wise to use your knowledge with a cool efficiency and a touch of restraint as previously hidden feelings are drawn out into the open now.

Mercury trines steady Saturn, allowing you to share what’s on your mind in a very matter-of-fact manner. Your straightforward communication enables you to regain the relationship security you recently lost.


Your nerves are fraying at the edges because coworkers seem impatient with your productivity today. You are certain you would wind up being the leader of the pack if only you could pick up the pace. Of course, you know the importance of engaging with your coworkers.

However, you’re not in the mood for games now, preferring to be left to your own devices. You’re not interested in being controlled and might even consider leaving your job or revamping your current responsibilities. The urgency is yours; you’re always one decision away from a different life.


Contradictory cosmic messages bring surprise and stability at the same time. You’re distracted by unexpected urges and unusual desires, and are at a loss as to how to handle them. Interactions with an authority figure may be strained at first but will likely resolve quickly in your favor if you keep a lid on your anger.

Clarity of thinking is a top priority and self-expression is the ultimate key to your happiness now. Being true to yourself sets an example for those you love.


Although you feel your confidence growing today, it’s crucial not to overstate it. Thankfully, you draw from the depths of your essential nature now and your words of desire move mountains. But you can still upset your closest allies if you fail to moderate your passionate perspective with common sense.

Fortunately, you have the tools to back up your reputation. Gordon B. Hinckley wrote, “Being humble means recognizing that we are not on earth to see how important we can become, but to see how much difference we can make in the lives of others.”


Your mental wheels are swiftly spinning, but sensible conclusions seem far away. Your intuition reminds you that it’s critical to think in practical terms in order to counteract the fast speed at which events at work are moving now.

Interpersonal interactions may seem confusing at first until you slow down to actually hear what one another are saying. Stephen Covey wrote, “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”


Stepping forward to directly ask for what you need now might bring better results than you expect, but you must be transparent when stating your intentions. It’s tempting to expand your list and request more than you actually require.

However, it’s possible to upset someone by going too far; making demands will not work. There’s no reason to overextend your reach. This isn’t a negotiation where both parties declare their opening position and then bargain from there. Mahatma Gandhi said, “I know no diplomacy save that of truth.”


Stretching your perspective to understand how others think is a healthy exercise today. However, don’t attempt to be all-inclusive or you could lose touch with your own core beliefs and your sense of value. You must make more grounded assessments of the worth of various people and projects.

Solidifying your personal relationships or finalizing business plans works out favorably for you, thanks to Mercury’s trine to karmic Saturn. Singer Ani DiFranco said, “We negotiate with chaos for some sense of satisfaction.”


Your ability to add urgency and clarity to any conversation commands attention today. Nevertheless, being a powerful communicator isn’t enough to obtain the results you want. You are not being greedy and your needs are completely reasonable.

However, rewards may be delayed by a less-than-generous Venus-Saturn connection. Your hard work might not be matched by the recognition you earn, but others will come to realize how much your contribution counts down the road. Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now.


You’re ready to go to the mat with anyone who disagrees with your strategy today. You’re uninterested in fomenting conflict, but you will not tolerate someone standing between you and your goal. Sensible Saturn blesses you with sound logic and the skill to organize details into a workable plan of action.

Your efforts may come to fruition, bringing well-deserved rewards, as long as you can demonstrate your willingness to be patient. Leonardo da Vinci wrote, “One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.”


You may grow sentimental today, sharing sweet words and artistic ideas as you sail the seas of stormy relationships. Your desire to smooth over rough spots could blur the truth in a haze of unfounded hope.

It’s tempting to allow pleasant memories to blind you to the significance of the present moment — seeing beauty in every situation is a gift — yet it can be a costly and confusing one if your vision becomes too fuzzy. Martin Luther wrote, “Nothing in the world causes so much misery as uncertainty.”


You have stepped into a leadership position, but you may not even know how you got there. Nevertheless, you must stand up and take responsibility for your newly acquired role. Thankfully, you can utilize your diplomacy skills now to interpret any sloppy communication you encounter.

It might be incumbent on you to raise a delicate issue. If so, your reassuring tone goes a long way to persuade others to jump into the conversation. Playwright Robert Sherwood wrote, “Strive toward a more inclusive, caring and respectful community.”
