The morning can feel a little unstable or chaotic. As the day progresses, we don’t necessarily gain focus or concentration, but we do feel more directed. All day, however, there is a tendency to want to break the rules.
- The Moon is in Taurus until 11:51 AM EDT.
- The Moon is in Gemini from 11:51 AM EDT forward.

You might be emotionally impulsive if you feel caged in today. Discontent with the status quo can lead to sudden actions or reactions. Unusual attractions to people and to things can be experienced now. Whatever does happen, you see both yourself and your relationships (or a partner) in a brand new way. Try to discern between true, honest desires and mere whims. Later today, take care of inconsistencies instead of worrying about them. Even if it’s just a small effort, it can also be empowering in a little way, and these things can add up over time.
There can be emotional impulsiveness early today. If someone attempts to pin you down or cage you in, you could be ready to bolt! Try not to throw something away or make big changes right now, as whatever is bothering you will blow over quickly. There can be tension with work or practical matters. Think about ways to improve your feelings of personal freedom while keeping the important things, and essential responsibilities, free from disruptions. Emotions tend to settle in the second half of the day, but you might still have trouble following the rules!
Positively, today’s somewhat unstable energies can invite important change and lead to the liberation of creativity, although you need to be careful not to hurt someone’s feelings in the process. You are either ready to experiment, or are faced with friends who are playing with different avenues of expression, and this can be unsettling at first. Unreliability can be the bottom line with lovers or friends. Even if your direction or purpose is a little uncertain right now, focusing on the little things can be helpful if you don’t worry where you’re headed with them. The small things add up to a lot over time!
Instability in your relationships, either within the family or on a professional level, can be the result of impulsive feelings or a strong desire to break the rules today. There could be a conflict between obligations to family and the desire to strike out on your own, for example. Avoid jumping to conclusions or making dramatic stands now, as these feelings are likely temporary and there is some volatility to the day’s energies that will pass quickly enough. In fact, although the pace of the day can begin a little chaotic or hectic, by midday, you’re ready for some hideaway or private time.
This is another day in which it’s best not to make commitments if you are not one hundred percent behind them. Early today, it’s a good idea to discern between reactions and true feelings. There is a tendency to clash with others when it comes to opinions and ideas today – a recurring theme for you this month. Transportation and communication mishaps might also be part of the picture now. If you don’t take others too seriously, or yourself for that matter, it can be a good day for interesting, progressive, and off the wall information, news, and ideas.
You might be putting up with unpredictable behavior or dealing with someone’s absence, emotionally or physically. It’s important to grant others space and freedom, but perhaps even more important is to build and nurture your own independent spirit. You are in the mood to experiment with different styles, products, and ideas now. If you watch for impulsive spending when big money is involved, you’ll do well to mix things up and try new things. Later today, you can be very sensitive to people’s reactions and comments, and you may feel temporarily discouraged. Developing a thicker skin is one of the most challenging tasks for Virgos, but can be a liberating experience even if done in small increments.
You could experience a sudden awakening to a relationship issue or awareness of something important about someone close to you. There may be some tensions with a partner or close friend now, who could be reactive or rebellious. The competitive edge experienced early today tends to dissipate, especially if you work with it rather than against it. While there is a small inclination to nurse your wounds later today, there can be something you hear or read that lifts your spirits and your thoughts above the less-important matters, and it’s a wonderful feeling.
It may be very difficult trying to get an answer, or at least a definitive one, from people today, and particularly a partner. Your perceptive sensors are usually very sharp and precise, but they could be temporarily working below par when you’re personally involved today. It can be difficult to know whether you’re seeing what you want/expect to see or what is actually the case. People AND schedules can be unreliable right now, so do your best not to count on them. If they come through for you, then it can be seen as a bonus. Being thrown off guard is not something you appreciate, so aim to do your own thing.
There can be a reawakening of a sense of aliveness in relationships now, but there can also be a spirit of rebellion or uncertainty. You are experimenting with your creativity as well, and although it can be hit or miss, you’re learning a lot about what you can do if you put your mind to it. Even so, however, it’s not an ideal time to make critical decisions or to allow your expectations to soar. People seem to be breaking the rules today, and emotions tend to be on the fickle or uncertain side.
It can be difficult to deal with dull or predictable elements in a close relationship, as there can be a strong desire to mix things up, make some changes, as well as learn and grow through your associations rather than repeat the same old patterns. You might also crave different types of pleasures and pastimes, music, food, clothes, and so forth. At the heart of this can be some irritation with your current status quo, especially on a domestic level. This is a time to tactfully and carefully carve out more personal space for yourself.
While you are in an especially forward-looking mood, you might appear as if you know better than others, and this can rub some people the wrong way. Your tastes and ideas may be too ahead of the times to catch on just for now. Life can be a bit scattered as your attention is all over the place. Disappointments or disconnects can ultimately lead to new and improved plans once you regain the motivation to get organized. You are inclined to not want to play by the rules right now, and this can stem from a feeling of boredom with anything that feels too structured or traditional. Clashes in beliefs may in fact be bigger issues than what they appear to be on the surface. Even through clashes, and sometimes especially so, we can learn a lot about ourselves.
Something unexpected can emerge and disrupt close relationships today. You could be wondering how a person feels about you, as there can be uncertainty about commitment or closeness. If you’re feeling guilty or confused about attractions and feelings now, you need to look for ways to free yourself by accepting or managing your emotions and desires. It’s important to take your time with decision making right now. Reducing debt can be important for you not just on the material level, but also in terms of unhealthy feelings of indebtedness towards others, or dependencies that make you feel less than confident.
