Aries/Aries Rising: The intensity of the Last Quarter Moon yesterday settles down – now there seems to be more resource, emotionally and otherwise, at the ready for simply engaging, having fun, expressing yourself. The Moon moves into Taurus and slows down your jets. Beauty, aesthetic, taking time for yourself, and getting more of a translatable grip on what’s going on exactly.
Taurus/Taurus Rising: The urgency of this Aries Moon at the start of the day before it moves into your sign is felt in mysterious ways for you, coloring nearly everything with that sense of impatience or need to separate, move away from (x). If you can sit with it and see where it takes you, certain personal insights can be reached, or if you find some way to explore it intuitively through a project, all the better.
Gemini/Gemini Rising: Pave a little freedom for yourself today – the Moon falls in your house of higher mind and trines Jupiter and Venus in Leo – your creative vision is soaring high and needs space to move. You have a window for genius insights and the ease of translating them down to communicable bites. The flow opens, and then you have Mercury freshly in your solar Taurus house – meaning focus, inertia, and aesthetic are infused into your speech and writing.
Cancer/Cancer Rising: It is feeling easier today (and take advantage) to be productive and make constructive strides forward in relevant career/commerce/design/creative project matters. Always assuming you get out of your own way when it comes to judging your process – today you shall give no fucks like the doctor ordered it. You’re working through, and then when the Moon moves into Taurus, definitively finding a way out of outmoded mental constructs.
Leo/Leo Rising: Where yesterday it may have seemed like asserting your truth was a force diffused upon impact, or where there was murkiness or confusion, today the Moon forms harmonious aspects to Jupiter and Venus in your sign. Courage comes easier, but it’s still courage. You’re situated just so to take actions that are relevant to what is truly right for you.
Virgo/Virgo Rising: The floodgates for creative flow and deep creative alignment are tempered shut only by limiting language or beliefs that structure a container around what is realistic or possible. The astro of today supports seeing the way through any walls or blocks, the answers most likely being within. It is the information from without that is only meant to fertilize and inspire your mind, not to order it.
Libra/Libra Rising: The Moon-Jupiter and Moon-Venus trine mean that following your instincts lands you into favorable and auspicious situations with like-minded people, and luckily for you, following your instincts really just means gathering the emotional climate of the room, like you do naturally. The push today is just to trust yourself and take the leap into new contacts, engaging with those of special intrigue.
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising: Not a day to overlook the details because of speed- especially when these details can be applied to business, projects, and the things that overall add a sense of solidity and regality to your life(style). Support for precision work, and a precision gaze into matters on your cutting edge of enterprise, commerce and aesthetic.
Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising: This is pleasant romance astro – think instinctual connections, seeing and being seen, creative ideas creating luck and adventure…. what to watch out for – delusional types of love, blown up pride, noisy opinions that aren’t of the engaging kind but of the alienating kind. Instead think of ways to connect by honoring yourself and by the vibration, seeing the honor in others.
Capricorn/Capricorn Rising: Following your emotions to their deeper implications today, besides helping you not feel overwhelmed, has the transmutational effect of turning inner-mysteries into raw knowledge with power. The inner detox results in more Qi flow through the parts of your life that deal in abundance and expansion of resources, happiness, and creative inspiration.
Aquarius/Aquarius Rising: Your communications are graced today – on the one hand they may be impulsive, but there is significant charm and tact to go along with it, humor too if you need to get across messages that seem more blunt without it. Stay away from superfluous judgmental attitudes – shift your lens if you catch yourself in that way, though practicing discernment is just another way of respecting your needs, energy and resources.
Pisces/Pisces Rising: The way you are feeling on the rut-front of life is shifting – there is a way to refine the lessons that you are learning now before making dramatic changes. And the more you practice your craft and get absorbed in your creative projects, the more the solution to what troubles you seems to lift out of the woodwork and find you, because you’re in the zone and it too lives in the zone.
