Aries

Hard work and irrepressible joy make excellent allies. In fact, this dynamic duo can bring you bountiful material and spiritual rewards. It doesn’t matter what distractions come and go today, you will not be led astray.

You are on a mission now, and derive deep satisfaction from staying on task while opportunistic Jupiter opposes the obstinate Taurus Sun in your 2nd House of Income. Do your job well and the cash will follow. Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Never spend your money before you have earned it.”

Taurus

Your optimism extends so far today that you may promise nearly anything before thinking about the consequences. But as nice as you try to be to others, good will is bidirectional. People with big ideas arrive at your door to solicit your help in their cause, and you can’t think of any reason to turn them away.

A spirit of collaboration increases your efficiency, but it doesn’t necessarily last when you’re actually in the production trenches. Seize this opportunity to practice tolerance by remembering that you are working on the same team. Author Bob Proctor wrote, “Cooperation is always more powerful than competition.”

Gemini

You can set the tone for leadership now by convincing people to move in a bold new direction. Although this burst of inspiration could apply to a solo mission, it’s really your ability to lead that stands out today.

You’re capable of breaking complex concepts down into bite-size terms that anyone can digest. Avoid the temptation to tackle more than you should when expansive Jupiter opposes the Sun. Your plans are solid on their own merit and don’t require lots of glitter to sell them to others. Sincerity counts more than sparkle.

Cancer

Your senses are highly acute today, enabling you to perceive subtle signs that others don’t even notice. Furthermore, you possess a natural skill that allows you to utilize what you know to your own ends. Your powers of persuasion are strong, and you’re thinking in more unconventional terms now. Taking a calculated risk at work demonstrates your ability to turn a difficult situation into a successful outcome.

Nevertheless, gambling with your heart is not advised. Wait a few days before making your feelings known if you wish to be received favorably. Saint Francis de Sales wrote, “Have patience with all things, but first of all with yourself.”

Leo

Your ambitions are amplified today, making it tough to integrate your goals into the circumstances of your life. An adventurous Sun-Jupiter opposition urges you to look forward in career matters, but all the other important signals insist that you manage your current obligations before taking on anything else.

You’re eager to continue on your journey, but first must meet the demands placed on you close to home. Narrowing your scope of vision improves the chances for success as long as you don’t shut out the ones who love you the most.

Virgo

You are caught up in intrigue as creative and romantic possibilities fly through your life. Although your thoughts have been lurking in the hidden recesses of your imagination, they are brought to the surface now where you can assimilate the new ideas. Step back and allow benevolent Jupiter to work his magic in your 3rd House of Communication.

Striking up a conversation about a difficult issue removes the roadblocks to honest dialogue. Zen philosopher Alan Watts wrote, “But the attitude of faith is to let go and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be.”

Libra

You may experience a wave of enthusiasm today that awakens exciting new feelings. Normally, you might just treat these intriguing sensations as intellectual curiosities and then be tempted to let them pass. However, you are inspired to move closer to the source of your emotions now, so you can better understand them.

Trust your intuition and follow your heart, for it will guide you toward more meaningful relationships. Deep conversations with the right people are priceless.

Scorpio

Your current arrogance is countered by the possibility of a fight to the finish. Nevertheless, you are inexplicably filled with hope and promises. The Sun’s opposition to buoyant Jupiter in your 1st House of Self pushes you to take on more than you can easily handle, but that won’t stop you from trying.

Of course, it’s appropriate to be ruggedly optimistic, but remember that many careful steps are required before you reach the top of the mountain. Author Jim Rohn wrote, “Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals.”

Sagittarius

You might take a stand on an important subject now, but your overt self-righteousness minimizes your influence. Unfortunately, differing ideas on how to move forward can lead to a clash with someone in power. It’s possible that your plan is better, but you haven’t yet put it out on the table.

Meanwhile, aristocratic Jupiter opposes the relentless Sun in your 6th House of Work, encouraging you to assert yourself in such a way that people feel like they need to resist. Fortunately, you can avoid a showdown by sharing your opinions gently, as if you have nothing to prove. Humility is your friend.

Capricorn

Your words carry the strength of your convictions today and when you speak, your friends and associates will listen. However, the Sun’s annual opposition to giant Jupiter floods your 5th House of Self-Expression with false confidence and unfounded positive thinking.

Over-commitment of resources or oversized egos will not be tolerated. When reality brings you back down to earth with a thud, you have no choice but to confront the obstacles in front of you. Lady Nancy Astor wrote, “The most practical thing in the world is common sense and common humanity.”

Aquarius

Your life is buzzing with excitement and you’re eager to experience as much of it as you can. You’re not naturally at ease with your feelings but being in an emotionally safe place now goes a long way to soothe your nerves.

The Sun’s opposition to bountiful Jupiter illuminates your 10th House of Public Responsibility while encouraging you to keep one foot firmly grounded on the home front. Although a logical approach to your career path may prevent you from taking unnecessary risks, it also enables you to be flexible enough so you can break free of structures that might otherwise hold you back.

Pisces

Your enthusiasm grows as you look ahead to your future. Whether or not you are struggling now, you can see brighter days down the road. An expansive Sun-Jupiter opposition activates your 9th House of Big Ideas, drawing inspirational people into your world.

However, bombastic Jupiter can also attract friends and colleagues who exaggerate too much. Consider whatever stories you are hearing as food for thought rather than a reflection of the current reality. A Hopi proverb teaches, “All dreams are spun from the same web.”
