April 20-May 20
An idealistic mood steals over you today. Flights of fancy occupy your mind. You might be in a very romantic mood, starry-eyed about someone special. Or perhaps your head is just in the clouds. This is certainly a pleasant state of mind, even if it does make you feel a bit tired or spaced out. Get some extra rest, or just let your mind wander.
May 21-June 21
You’re unusually emotional today. You might find yourself lost in a reverie about someone from your past, or someone’s sad story might really pull at your heartstrings. This kind of sentimental feeling isn’t your usual state, and you might try to ignore it or display bravado you don’t actually feel. Why not indulge in a bit of emotional vulnerability? If nothing else, it enables you to make sweet connections with other people.
June 22-July 22
Your compassion swells today like a river after a rain. You have so much tenderness and caring within you that it leaks out, drenching everyone nearby. Others can benefit from your nurturing energy. So can strangers you smile at as you walk down the street, or someone for whom you hold the door. These little acts of kindness add up to a lot of goodwill, and that’s powerful medicine.
July 23-August 22
Today’s emotional energy could leave you feeling a bit melancholy. You’re in the kind of mood when old loves and losses resurface in your mind, and you mull them over to see if those old bruises still hurt. It’s wise not to assign too much importance to a tender spot in your memory or your consciousness. In some sense, that’s just your emotions playing tricks on you. This mood will wash away soon.
August 23-September 22
Access your empathetic side today. Your usual perspective tends to be logical and dispassionate, but now, many people’s experiences have moved into a purely subjective realm. That makes it more important for you to treat them with kindness and compassion. Show yourself this same caring concern, as well. If you have an emotional issue, it’s better to feel it out than to ignore it or explain it away.
September 23-October 22
You’re quite sensitive today, especially in tense situations or confrontations. You might realise how thin-skinned you’re feeling when someone’s comment pushes a button you didn’t even realise was a tender spot. When you’re in a mood like this, it’s a good idea to be gentle with yourself, and avoid spending time with abrasive types who might rub you the wrong way without even realising what they’re doing.
October 23 – November 22
You’re extra big-hearted today. Your own problems recede as you tune in to other people and their needs. You’re in the mood to help anyone who needs it, on any level. But your strongest area now is giving emotional support. You have a lot of warmth and tenderness to offer, but your undeniable core of strength will protect you from anyone who might think to take advantage of your kindness.
November 23-December 20
Take a journey of the heart today. Connect with someone you care about, and share a tender moment. Now is also a good time to check in with your own inner self. Spend some time writing in your journal, daydreaming, or reading a book that brings poetic images to mind. This kind of activity inspires your imagination, which helps dissolve the veil between concrete reality and something much more fanciful.
December 21-January 19
A romantic mood settles in today. It’s as if you’re wearing the proverbial rose-coloured glasses — and yet, this is a good thing. Taking a soft-edged, rosy view of life isn’t silly or weak. It’s valiant. Without idealism, no one would be able to envision their heart’s desire, or the perfect life for them. Even if your head is in the clouds, you can lead the way in demonstrating the power of wishful thinking.
January 20-February 18
Your sensitive side is prominent today. You might find that your feelings are easily hurt by comments you wouldn’t normally notice, much less take personally. Surprise, surprise — you have buttons that can be pressed, after all! Of course, your friends and family know you have a vulnerable side. It just might not show itself except on days like today, when a very particular cosmic influence is in effect.
February 19-March 20
If your energy is low today, don’t push yourself to go, go, go. While you may have tasks on your agenda that you can’t get out of, it’s much better if you can allow your mind to wander, because your head is already in the clouds. Besides, there’s a lot of creativity in daydreams. You might surprise yourself by coming up with a truly visionary idea with real-world applications.
