Releasing our current desires to control can help us find what flows smoothly. As the orderly Capricorn Moon absorbs intense Pluto, we may fear being alone and try to keep others too close. After Luna enters spirited Aquarius, she aligns with assertive Mars. Everything should run a lot more smoothly once people have room to breathe! Finding the best balance may take some trial and error as rebel Uranus turns retrograde at 10:39 PM EST. We need each other, but we also need our space.
March 21 – April 19
A search for an outside perspective on a bewildering power dynamic can be instructive today. Hearing that what you’re dealing with isn’t normal can at least be a sure thing. Of course, this won’t necessarily give you an escape route. With independent Uranus retrograde in your second house of resources, keep in mind that some of your assumptions about what you can do on your own aren’t entirely accurate. Digging deeper than usual to lay out the facts may expand your options.
April 20 – May 20
Having a rigid belief system in place can give you some relief at this time. However, noting that you cannot successfully impose this on others will provide you with a useful reality check. You can also take some time to take inventory of how this worldview has shaped you over time. If you don’t like what you see, a retrograde Uranus shift in your first house of identity gives you an excellent opportunity to make amends. There is no shame in admitting that you are learning to do things better!
May 21 – June 20
Taking everyone else’s word for money or property is risky right now. When the impressionable Moon meets manipulative Pluto in your eighth house of shared resources, an immersion in a somber story is likely to end badly. If something doesn’t feel right, see what rules are supposed to govern what you do. It is possible that the situation will change in your favor, but you will need to show some initiative – the change may not happen on its own.
June 21 – July 22
The intensity of a close relationship may be overwhelming for you at present. In the constant rush to put out one emotional fire or the other, you may realize that you don’t even know what the other person actually wants. You should probably ask them to tell you specifically rather than just dropping hints. Although you may be in the habit of asking friends for advice, stop it for the time being, and try to work things out between you this time.
July 23 – August 22
You are currently able to work obsessively to get perfect results in a task. When the hungry Moon meets complex Pluto in your productive sixth house, your effort is likely to be motivated by a much bigger story than the mission itself. Who are you trying to impress? You may need to speak with them directly to ensure that they receive the message you are broadcasting. Once you get to grips with reality, you have a better chance of discovering what really serves your main goals.
August 23 – September 22
You may worry that your recent struggle to get things done is making you childish and immature. It is likely that the root of this anxiety is the fear that you will not be able to complete a complex task perfectly – in which case, why would you start doing it at all? Remind yourself that you have to start somewhere. With curious Uranus turning retrograde in your ninth house of inquiry, you might catch a glimpse of what you need to know more about once you move forward. Studying can be fun, so don’t delay!
September 23 – October 22
Finding a harmonious balance with your family members and other loved ones can be challenging today. With individual Uranus retrograde in your intimate eighth house, you may need to adjust your boundaries regarding these close relationships. Sometimes this means claiming your personal space and standing up for the amount of freedom you need to make your own decisions. However, the imbalance can go either way. If the truth is that a close association would satisfy you better, feel free to ask!
October 23 – November 21
Currently, you have to think carefully about the possible consequences of using certain places to deliver certain types of messages. Posting a vague but well-defined statement on social media can be tempting, but it has the potential to inflame the drama you’re dealing with. Talking face to face with the person who upset you can be intimidating, as you may feel that your ability to control the situation is limited. You may not be ready for this yet, but try to avoid making things worse in the meantime.
November 22 – December 21
Your worries about financial matters may lead you in an unhelpful direction today. Talking to friends can be reassuring, plus you may get practical advice in addition to any sympathy you receive. If you hear advice that sounds promising, you’d better try it. As intelligent Uranus rotates retrograde in your sixth house of daily routines, you’re in the perfect position to look critically at your habits and change those that don’t work for you. Even a simple shift can make a big difference!
December 22 – January 19
Managing the way people see you may seem like the top priority of the day. There is a lot you can do on this front. Even when the perceptive Moon aligns with ruling Pluto in your first house of identity, it is not possible to guarantee that your refreshing vision of yourself will be fully shared by others. The best thing you can do is make an effort to live your values - that will, at the very least, give your audience something really tangible to look at!
January 20 – February 18
Facing your fears honestly may be necessary at any moment. As the weak Moon in your sign harmonizes with courageous Mars in your ninth house of higher education, intentionally learning about any concerns can help you put them into perspective. The idea of being tied down by some obligation can be an especially great motivator. Consider researching how others have handled similar situations. The need to balance competing priorities is probably more common than you think – you can’t be the first!
February 19 – March 20
Your social network’s opinions may be overwhelming to you right now. After the sensitive Moon moves into your contemplative twelfth house, you may need to go on your own to figure out what you’re really thinking. Confiding in a particularly dear person or close colleague may help you sort things out, but don’t feel obligated to talk to anyone until you feel ready. It will probably take some time to formulate your position, and this may be easier without an audience.
