Stay focused on your mission, Aries, and you’ll reach your goal in less time than you expect. Today, resolute Saturn is shooting a tough-love beam to the creative Sun in your partnership zone. You may have to sacrifice a little personal time, but when you snag that gold medal, it’ll all be worthwhile. Then flip the script: Let people know your limits at work and stick to your guns; and THEN repay that special someone’s patience, perhaps with a romantic dinner or two tickets to a concert.
Got fitness goals? Of course you do, determined Taurus! Today you can take a giant lunge in a radiant direction, thanks to the motivated mashup of disciplined Saturn and the Sun in your healthy living realm. This edgy cosmic combo can make you just uncomfortable enough to take action, whether that’s lacing up your trainers and going to spin class or looking for home gym equipment on Craigslist. It’s also a good day to tackle that nagging bad habit that you can’t seem to kick.
No winging it today, Gemini, or faking it till you make it. A disruptive angle between the action-spurring Sun and cautious Saturn is flashing warning lights to slow down, so double-check your plan—and then maybe run it by a third party to make sure you didn’t miss something obvious. While you COULD luck out, expecting good fortune to save you is setting yourself up for disappointment. Take the time to get it right out of the gate; and if you can’t show up prepared, postpone and reschedule!
Your secret weapon today is boundaries. Set strong ones and then enforce them! A person close to you may not realize they’re about to cross a line, so don’t wait for it to happen. Anytime someone starts demanding too much of your time or prying into your personal affairs, politely but firmly let them know they’re treading into the danger zone. You’ll get cosmic support from today’s tough-love connection involving ego-protective Sun and border-cop Saturn in your intimate-partnership houses. Remind potential trespassers that healthy relationships thrive with a little separation.
Talk is cheap—and it won’t get you far today, Lion. A tense square between the Sun in your communication corner and solemn Saturn in your hard-work zone insists you walk your talk. If you say something, you’d better mean it because someone is likely to call you on it…and be pretty irritated if you can’t deliver the goods. Empty promises can wreck your hard-earned reputation. So if you’re feeling stretched a bit too thin, practice saying “I’d totally love to, but I’m overcommitted at the moment.”
Could it be that Virgo—aka the diligent creative of the cosmic realm—is looking to others for approval? It’s an easy trap to fall into, especially when you love and respect your friends, but it’s important for your proud sign to get your validation from within. Under today’s illuminating Sun-Saturn square, you can catch a clear view of your psychological blind spots and discover where you might be undervaluing yourself or shape-shifting to fit into others’ values. Two words: Stop that!
Today’s starmap has a loud and clear message for you, Stop putting everyone else first and focus on YOUR needs. With the Sun in your sign forming a tense square to border-guard Saturn, it’s time to put your foot down and redirect all that lovingkindness you extend to others to yourself. Instead of another night of listening to HER tales of woe and disappointment, slip off to yoga class and a candlelight dinner with a friend who actually knows how to listen to you.
Pay attention to how you interact with friends and colleagues today, Sag. An illuminating square between the Sun in your collaborative house and critical Saturn may hint at codependency issues or mutual enabling—neither of which makes for a healthy connection. Stay aware of when you’re not being true to yourself or failing to call your friend out on questionable behavior. Sometimes a subtle shift in YOUR choice or words or body language can shift the whole dynamic—for the better. Down the truth serum, but chase it with a shot of tact.
Bogus bureaucracy is your pet peeve at the workplace, but sometimes you simply have to abide. Today, the Sun in your career corner locks into a dicey square with restrained Saturn in your sign. Someone in a position of authority holds all the cards, and no matter how much you try, you can’t get a read on the situation. You may be tempted to find a way around protocol, but don’t. Sit tight, and distract yourself with work you can control. With keen observation, you’ll figure out how to get this person to actually listen—but it’s going to take a little time.
Assert your authority, Aquarius! Your free-flowing sign is generous with friends and colleagues when it comes to sharing the glory, but today, someone might be trying to elbow in on your shining moment. Don’t let them! With the expressive Sun in your candid ninth house squaring “by the book” Saturn, you’ll have the guts and clarity to stand up for what’s rightfully yours. You may have to have strong words with this person, but as a result, you could grow a steelier will.
Think before you spill any secrets today, Pisces, even if they’re yours to share. Not everyone has your best interests at heart, and being too forthcoming could wind up working against you. Tapping the energy of the restraining square between the Sun and stoic Saturn can give you the necessary discipline to keep personal intel in the vault, where it belongs. And don’t go venting about your partner, no matter how irritated you may be. Your private affairs should stay that way.
Today even the most eloquent Scorpios may struggle to articulate yourselves with the clarity you’re accustomed to on most days. Blame it on a signal-scrambling angle between the Sun in your hazy twelfth house and critical Saturn. Deflect any pressure that makes you feel like you need to speak before you’re ready. It’s better to buy a little time and get it right than to push through and blow the deal. And if something’s not clear to you, don’t make assumptions. Come out and ask for more info.
