As the zodiac’s de facto leader, you don’t usually have to be reminded about the strength found in numbers. But today, a tense square between Jupiter in your career corner and the emo moon in your partnership house could have you looking sideways at people and resisting teaming up. Are you getting ahead of yourself on a project or afraid others will eclipse your talent? Do a reality check and see how NOT trying to DIY can actually help you perform better!
Fact: You’re not going to hit a home run every at-bat. So don’t let a recent setback sour your mood or convince you that things are “doomed.” Pull the plug on your pity party, dust yourself off and get back up and at ‘em! But before you dive into the next phase of your mission, reflect on where you might have gone astray. Did you get help from the wrong person? Were you too ambitious in your projections? Adjust course, and trust that this lesson will make a significant difference.
It’s said we’re “only as sick as our secrets,” so take your spiritual vitals today, Gem. If anything, your candid sign is usually guilty of TMI, not withholding, but it’s still worth a check-in. Under a tense square between truth-telling Jupiter and the emo moon in your expressive fifth house, you’ve got support for revealing something you’ve been keeping to yourself. It might be a little scary—even to an intrepid Gemini—but being transparent can help you avoid a confrontation down the road.
Show your inner circle some love today, Crab! With the moon in your house of kith and kin, you’ll feel a sentimental pull toward someone in particular, perhaps a close female friend or relative. But a tough square from supersizer Jupiter could cause you to overdo your display of affection. While there’s nothing wrong with being generous, you don’t want to go to extremes or embarrass somebody with an extravagant gift or gesture they might feel beholden to reciprocate.
Things might not all go your way today, Leo, so before you leave the house, give yourself a little “go with the flow” pep talk. With the moon in your communication zone, you might feel like you can negotiate yourself out of any sticky or unfavorable situation. And while normally you CAN, under today’s edgy square from domineering Jupiter in your work corner, your usual charms could fail you. Rather than bang your head against the wall, look for the silver lining. It’s there somewhere, Lion.
Resist the temptation of retail therapy today, Virgo, especially if you’re using it as a numbing agent. It won’t be easy with the impressionable moon in your house of possessions clashing with boundary-challenged Jupiter. Focus on a big financial goal and think how much closer you’ll be if you can delay gratification now. You don’t have to do full-on deprivation, but deal with any underlying emotions that might be driving you to self-soothe.
Stay or go? You may be torn today, thanks to a confusing square between the emo moon in your sign and spontaneous Jupiter. The temptation to cancel appointments at the last minute is strong, but think about the lasting impact of that. You’re free to do what you want, but if this person means anything to you, you at least owe them the courtesy of an explanation. Otherwise, you’ll be guilty of ghosting, and you know how YOU feel when that happens to you. Do the kind thing, Libra.
Financial reality check time. Today’s clash between the moon in your collaborative corner and limitless Jupiter in your money zone could cause an expense to skyrocket. Yikes! Before you get vertigo from trying to keep up, assess how much you really want to be a part of this. If your coffers aren’t as flush as others’ in your crew, talk privately to someone about whether you REALLY have to pay what they’re paying. Consider the barter system, too. It could be that you have something equally valuable to offer, like your writing or consulting skills.
Align with your intuition at work, especially when you find yourself struggling to focus. With the moon in your career corner, your inner knowing will be sharp and on-target. But because la luna is in a tense square with Jupiter in your sign, you could take this a step too far and insist on doing things your way. Being a know-it-all won’t win you fans, Capricorn. Keep your opinions to yourself unless you’re asked for them. Work quietly behind the scenes and trust that later, your results will speak for themselves.
It’s not like you to avoid a critical conversation, but today you might rather run for the hills rather than face THAT person. Think this through before you bolt. What are you really afraid of here? (Could you be feeling some super-rare insecurity…or guilt?) Under today’s tense square between the moon and candid Jupiter, your emotions may get the better of you. But ignoring this issue isn’t going to make it go away. If you owe someone an apology, take the high road and do it graciously—and sincerely!
Emotional intensity alert! Thanks to an uneasy mashup of the moon in Libra and your eighth house of extremes and supersizer Jupiter, your moods could fluctuate wildly today. If someone is triggering your resentment or jealousy, don’t waste all day obsessing. Flip the script and let the object of your envy inspire you to work harder and do better. But focus on YOUR unique style instead of trying to emulate or compete with someone else’s.
While you may be anxious to get going, remember, not everyone operates at your intense level. And it’s no fair putting the pressure on or acting like this offer will expire at midnight tonight (unless it really does). The moon and over-the-top Jupiter are at loggerheads today, so you might have to distract yourself for 24 hours until the stars align in your favor. In the meantime, could your plan benefit from a review or a little extra tweaking? Instead of pacing, polish and perfect!
