Friday, July 23
Conflicting messages challenge us to navigate through turbulent waters today. On one hand, the Moon’s entry into conservative Capricorn at 4:38 am EDT cautions us to restrain our emotional expression. We are even more contained when the Moon squares constrictive Saturn. Today’s Capricorn Moon can be stabilizing, but she won’t stop us from taking chances since the Sun harmoniously trines radical Uranus, pushing us out of the box and over the edge.
Trying to control your feelings today may be a good idea, but it won’t likely be a successful strategy. Of course, it’s not wise to express everything because some of your emotions are better kept to yourself. You could land in a pile of trouble if you broadcast your wants and needs to everyone before considering the ramifications of your actions.
Although you might have had a chance recently to do something exciting, you did the responsible thing and acted with self-restraint. By now, you should have enough information to go for it if all still looks good. You are smarter because of your experience, but the window of opportunity is closing. If you don't put your newly gathered intelligence to work quickly, you could lose the chance forever.
You are tired of shallow conversations and idly hanging out with friends. Unexpected events at work today can increase your insecurity about your future, but there shouldn't be much to worry about if you have continued to work hard. Even if it feels like you are at an impasse, the changes you have been dreaming about could occur now without much resistance. Don't waste time analyzing your options; just make your move. Your life is on the upswing, even it doesn't unfold exactly as you imagined.
You may feel more courageous than usual because you’re attracted now to the idea of being different. You’re not that worried about what everyone else says these days so unsolicited advice won't have as much impact on your life. This is your chance; go ahead and be the non-conformist that you secretly want to be, even if it's just for a day.
You can become quite insistent about your work plan because you really need to shake things up a bit. The same old thing may not be very interesting to you now so your strategy becomes more revolutionary. You aren't interested in lighthearted love; casual interactions are a waste of your precious time. Take the time to dream up a new and more inclusive way to approach relationships. Love is all around you if you are willing to try something different.
You don’t want to be overly reliant on anyone else now because when things get serious, the other person might do a disappearing act. Ultimately, someone else's instability may be an acute reflection of your unwillingness to partake in an unhealthy relationship. Nevertheless, you really don't have to convince others to do your bidding. Be the lightning instead of waiting to be struck by it.
It's hard to adhere to your own schedule now, for unexpected changes make it nearly impossible to carry through with your original plans. Nevertheless, try not to get agitated by the things you cannot change. Let a few of your less important patterns slip for a day or two. Once the cycle is broken, you should be able to put the pieces back together in a more constructive manner.
Be careful about trying to run your life according to a preset agenda, for change is in the air today. It’s possible that your plans may even fall apart because of your own whimsical moods. Still, putting together a playbook for the day is a wise strategy. Instead of only focusing on what you want, figure out a way to do what's best for all.
Life is complicated now because the Moon forms an intense conjunction with Pluto. But you are being pumped up by an anything-goes Sun that trines high-tension Uranus. Don’t be so confident that you take a foolish chance on something that's not important. Being creative is great, but not if you jeopardize the positive gains you have already made.
The illuminating Sun in your 7th House of Partners receives a jolt of lightning from shocking Uranus. This is a call for you to involve others in your latest scheme. Luckily, taking action is not difficult because you don't have as many restraints operating in your life now. Go ahead and share your plan, even if it's not yet ready for prime time. Others can see the potential in your ideas and will likely support your endeavors.
You are able to do the inner work today, but changing your mind is only part of the picture. Even if you can see the positive potential in a relationship, it won’t be that easy to overcome the other person’s resistance to your suggested changes. Unfortunately, the harder you apply yourself, the more distant your goals get. But withdrawing would also be a mistake. Back up just enough to alleviate the tension, take a few deep breaths and try again.
Today may be a totally exciting day at work that is filled with surprises, yet you may not be amused with all the uncertainty. You have had plenty of unexpected twists and turns in your life and you’re not looking for any more. Fortunately, your upbeat mood should enable you to make the best of nearly any difficult situation, so don’t hold yourself back too much.
