Topics of conversation, and thoughts, can be deeper and more serious than usual this morning, dear Aries. You could be fixating on a particular idea or problem, and this energy can definitely be put to good use if you apply it constructively. Negatively, there can be difficulties relating with others, particularly if you feel cooped in or if your ideas are not received well. There can be defensiveness in manner or speech that interferes with healthy communication now. As the day advances, you might find that thinking transitions from intense to innovative. Worry may motivate you to find new ways of doing things. The Moon moves into your sector of reputation and responsibility this afternoon, and you are more tuned in to taking care of business.
This morning, you are not satisfied with superficial explanations or pat answers as Mercury and Pluto form a square, dear Taurus. Differences in opinion or lack of understanding can arise that frustrate you. You may feel backed into a corner or forced to make a decision – positions that you typically resist with great stubbornness! Focus can be on a private matter or an unresolved issue from your past, but as the day moves forward, you are more inclined to detach yourself from negative thinking and perhaps even turn fear or worry into inventiveness and exciting new plans.
Your thinking tends to deepen today, dear Gemini, but you should watch that it doesn’t cross into obsessive thinking or worrying, which is possible with Mercury and Pluto forming a square. Interactions with others can run hot and cold today and you may be giving off some rather provocative energy even if you are not at first aware of it. A problem that you believed had been laid to rest could emerge today, and you could be encountering the darker side of others close to you, and possibly of yourself. Avoid defensiveness.
Differences in style and tastes, and especially in beliefs, between you and others can seem more obvious and disruptive today, dear Cancer. There can be power plays going on today in your close relationships, and a stand-off on an issue is possible. Respect for other points of view is vital now, but this has to go two ways or you’ll get nowhere. There can be an issue or a person that/who takes over your thoughts to the point that you’re completely distracted from what actually needs your attention. However, frustrations can easily be turned around, and in fact lead to improvements in your relationships as the day advances.
A particular venture, project, person, or idea can be demanding your full attention today, dear Leo. This can turn into an obsession rather quickly, which can be helpful if you’re focusing on something worthwhile, but a time waster if you’re worrying or otherwise doing yourself damage. While your eye for detail is excellent right now, it may be at the expense of seeing the bigger picture. There can be charged relationships with others in the first half of the day, particularly with co-workers or fellow students, as it can be a little too easy to get on one another’s nerves or to put too much stock in whether or not others are catching on to our ideas and beliefs.
You could become involved in a research project, engrossed with an idea, or you may simply be thinking very intently about something today, dear Virgo, with Mercury in hard aspect to Pluto – a planet that rules our darker side. If you can channel this into something constructive, you’ll find you’re more focused than usual now, although you may be putting too much effort into matters that will later seem inconsequential. Issues of control and self-control can emerge. On some level, you may be frustrated with your current position in your life, and while this can certainly stimulate ambition, it can also lead to a desire for power over your environment and over people around you, which gets you nowhere fast. Even if you are temporarily successful, you won’t be satisfied for long. Turn obstacles into stepping stones and be patient. The Moon’s move into your sector of entertainment and hobbies can enliven your mood.
You could be mulling over issues and reexamining matters, particularly related to negotiations, deals, and partnership, dear Libra. You could be worrying about matters of security and stability, but an examination of your fears and deeper needs can help you to adapt to changes. Try not to come down heavily on someone for not agreeing with you or for not holding some of the same values as you do. Others might easily touch a nerve with you, but in the process, they are allowing you to see some of the fears that can be driving your own behavior, especially challenging ones. Consider whether it’s actually a buried or hidden aspect of yourself that is making you uncomfortable. Your mind may be going to darker or deeper places today, but the process can lead to good ideas about how to better manage your life.
With Mercury, the planet of communication, in challenging aspect to your ruler, Pluto, today, dear Scorpio, what you communicate can have more impact than usual, so be sure to represent yourself well. Do what you can to stick to the facts and to downplay your ego, as controversy can easily be stirred now. Irritability or tension due to the stress of increased demands from others can be experienced today. While giving something further thought is helpful, try to shake it off if it’s truly interfering with your day or making you angry. Alternatively, you can find a way to act upon your feelings and beliefs, even in a small way, so that you can feel you’re actually going somewhere with it. As the day advances, your vision broadens and frustrations can easily turn into new thought or ideas for making improvements.
Quick reactions can occur from things said today, dear Sagittarius, and you can learn a lot about yourself through what seems to be triggering frustrations. Avoid getting caught up in mind games with others, although this may be easier said than done right now. Someone could be trying to push an idea onto you, and this doesn’t sit well. However, if you focus on what you’re doing and what can be accomplished, this can be a good time for gaining new insight into a matter, or for furthering a project through research or deeper concentration. Focus on positive matters. You are especially resourceful and can find useful information if you look for it.
You can be quite obsessed with an idea or issue now, dear Capricorn, and if you use this intensity positively, you can really apply yourself to fixing a problem or gaining new insight into an important matter. If, on the other hand, you find yourself focusing on an unchangeable issue that only serves to frustrate you, then do your best to pull your mind out of that spiral. Keep in mind that while your focus will enlarge later today and into tomorrow, when the big picture is more easily viewed, early today you may not be seeing beyond the frustrations of the moment. You may end up wasting a lot of time and energy on matters that you will later consider inconsequential. Look for the light at the end of the tunnel, and avoid making decisions until you’ve entertained different perspectives. The Moon moves into your sign early afternoon, and your emotional needs come into strong focus.
Issues from the past can surface or are triggered today, dear Aquarius, which can interfere with healthy thinking and communication. You may be wrestling with some feelings of guilty and anxiety which can skew thinking. Instead of allowing these things to fester and to undermine your happiness, try to pinpoint the source and work on resolving frustrated feelings or resentments. Little things can grate on your nerves today, or you can choose to fix the problems that you’re sensitive to now. Your ability to see the details and to analyze matters is stronger now, but you may not see what truly matters. As the day advances, tunnel vision fades and you find it easier to see the bigger picture. The Moon moves into your privacy sector early afternoon, and this can stimulate a need for relaxing, quiet, and undemanding activities.
Communications and/or thoughts can be tense this morning, dear Pisces, as a Mercury-Pluto challenge occurs that on one hand can help us to focus, but on the other, can limit our view which can be skewed by worries. While you shouldn’t run away from serious topics, it’s better not to get caught in a game someone is playing. Deep thinking can eventually lead to new ideas and approaches – even innovative ones – as you find ways to improve your relationships and financial situation. The Moon moves into your friends, hopes, and ideals sector early afternoon, and this also helps to brighten your mood and broaden your perspective.
