You can be experiencing ambiguous feelings or situations today, Aries, as you could be temporarily tuning in to past difficult situations or dealing with guilt or lost time. Those things you have neglected may reveal themselves now, or they could be catching up with you. You could be feeling behind, but keep in mind that it will pass. While it’s with you, try to get in touch with what it is that you’re escaping or avoiding. Try to find ways to close something or deal with loose ends so that you can move forward. For some of you, there could be an ambiguous situation or impression from a love interest to deal with. Slow down if you can, but try not to dwell.
There is more focus than usual on the past or unresolved matters this time of year for you, Taurus, and some days more than others. Today, there can be a tendency to want to cocoon yourself from difficult situations or to want to escape direct contact with certain people. You might simply not be feeling up to coming to conclusions, making strict commitments, or dealing with definitions. In fact, it’s not a good day for solid decisions. Friendships can be on the ambiguous side now as well. Try to stay calm and composed if something unexpected crops up. You’ll get back on track soon enough.
You can experience waning energy or motivation levels today, Gemini, and perhaps some ambiguous feelings about a friendship, work, or reputation matter. There may be some misunderstandings today, not necessarily because of poor choice of words but because we may not feel as confident about our goals and wants. Take extra time to unwind, or if you are unable to do so, be a little extra cautious and vigilant with rules, facts, and figures. On a positive note, however, this can be a good time for nurturing a love relationship, as well as creative writing and publishing.
While you can be in a rather good frame of mind in many ways today, Cancer, if you’re expecting life to follow the rules today, you’re likely to deal with disappointment. There can certainly be some fuzziness experienced now, and it may not be easy to motivate yourself to get a whole lot done. Some situations today can leave you dealing with question marks, but if you let things be in this regard rather than pushing for definitions and solid answers, you’ll be far better off. Be a little more vigilant in situations that require extra focus or attention. Otherwise, nurture your imagination.
While you’ve likely been quite content to move about independently recently, Leo, today you can be a little unsure or hesitant. Your concern for other people’s agendas, feelings, and needs is a true strength, and it’s best to tend to them even if it means putting current plans on hold. Friendships can be nurturing and safe-feeling. However, doubts may be setting in regarding goals and casting a slightly gloomy veil over your perceptions; or you could be putting faith in something that is unrealistic. Procrastination is possible now. Try to take a break, or slow yourself down to get your bearings. Pushing forward right now may lead to a series of frustrations.
There is good energy for nurturing a business or professional pursuit, Virgo, but close relationships may be slightly confusing or possibly alienating. If you’re receiving confusing signals from a significant other or partner, it may have to do with insecurities or uncertainties rather than full-on issues. You could be romanticizing situations or people. Others’ behavior can be baffling, and while you love a good mystery to wrap your mind around, when it comes to people and your relationships, you don’t appreciate ambiguity. You prefer to know where you stand. Today, however, clarity is elusive, and people may be as well! It’s not the time to try to pin someone or something down. Get your mind off people problems by focusing on something more manageable and predictable.
While you tend to want to focus on the positive today, Libra, it may be difficult to completely convince yourself of something. This second-guessing of yourself can be treated as a chance to catch your breath. You can feel a strong urge to relax and escape. While the day is complicated and timing can be off, your powers of attraction are quite decent. Try not to expect too much – live in the moment as much as possible. You are a little more sensitive to imbalances in your environment and fluctuations in others’ moods. One-one-one interactions can be confusing, and it’s better not to try to define them or label anyone just now. Chasing answers will have you running in circles. Vague health issues or a general feeling of lowered vitality may be experienced now. However, you can be highly creative when it comes to new or improved work methods.
Work and chores can seem overwhelming today, Scorpio, and energy is variable. This likely reflects some lack of confidence in what you’re currently doing or where you’re headed. Allow yourself to steer a little off course today so that you can get your bearings. Timing can be off both personally and mechanically. Try not to load your schedule, and attempt to mix things up enough to keep yourself engaged. Don’t take temporary waning of enthusiasm as something very serious, but do consider if there’s something you’ve been missing, particularly on spiritual and emotional levels, as you may have forgotten to add these needs to your plans.
You’re unlikely to find a straight, direct path to achieving your goals today, Sagittarius, and you might even temporarily second-guess the destination. Try to treat these as interesting detours rather than true roadblocks. Imagine, dream, and consider options that you’ve forgotten about or never considered before. If love matters are confusing, consider that you don’t need to define things just for now. The trick is to be flexible and willing to adapt. Physical energy levels may be on the low side, but creative imagination and energy can run higher if you open your mind to the experience.
There is an escapist in you and in the people around you today, Capricorn. Avoid trying to find definitive answers to problems and instead offer others (and yourself) kind words. Resist any temptation to fudge your way out of facing situations that you’d prefer to avoid. Take extra care in business or formal communications. Try to take some time off today for yourself to be alone with your thoughts and ideas, as they can serve you especially well right now. This can in fact be a good day for taking care of your valuables, tending to work and health matters, and supporting people you love through practical help. The key seems to be if you feel free to do these things of your own accord, as opposed to feeling pushed into doing things out of duty.
People around you, and particularly those closest to you, tend to be elusive or ambiguous today, Aquarius. There can also be some lack of clarity in business and especially financial affairs right now, as important details can be overlooked. Try to pace yourself today. Focusing on a creative project or a relationship can be especially fruitful, however. There can be a very nice exchange of feelings with someone, even if situations are not perfectly clear. Others can be especially drawn to you, as you are radiating healing, nurturing energy.
If it’s possible, try to take extra time to yourself today, Pisces, with the Moon retreating into your privacy sector and the Sun in minor but challenging aspect to your ruler, Neptune. The desire to escape can be strong, and you could also be feeling a little overlooked. The ego should be underplayed just for now, and this is part of a natural, ebb and flow cycle. Some confusion or fogginess is possible now, and this is especially the case around business and financial matters. If you need to deal with facts and figures, be a little more vigilant today.

LUNAR PHASE: THIRD QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 45 degrees behind the Sun.
We have strong beliefs and are likely to put them into action. We have the wisdom to know when to act, but sometimes can be inflexible.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on April 13th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
