It takes two to make a thing go right—yes, even for an indie-spirited Aquarius. Today’s sizzling angle between the moon and amorous Venus sets the stage for heart-to-heart connections. Someone who understands you intellectually could also stimulate you on a soul level. Keep an open mind, because a date you relegated to the friend zone could suddenly appear in a more amorous light. If you’re in a relationship, be more vocal about your desires. Getting your needs met doesn’t have to be a frustrating guessing game. The sooner you speak up, the better.
Today the quarter moon in Taurus and your domestic fourth house reminds you that home is more than just a rest stop between work and nightlife. Take time to get Chateau Aquarius cleaned up, organized and set up to serve your current lifestyle. Maybe it’s time to haul the unused desk into the basement and set up an area for a meditation and yoga practice; or vice versa if a home office would be useful. You might even break out the bagua map and figure out how to bring more positive chi into your career or love corner some Feng Shui magic. While you’re rearranging things, slow down your whirlwind social schedule before you burn yourself out. Who knows? The creative juices could start flowing when you’re chilling on your sofa and binge-watching Orange Is the New Black.
Today’s stirring exchange between chatty Mercury and excitable Uranus brings an electric spark to your conversations. A meeting of the minds could quickly evolve into kindred spirit connection. Don't be too quick to shuffle people into the friend zone. An intellectual attraction could evolve into physical chemistry under these surprising skies. You can certainly swoon for a beautiful mind, Aquarius. If you’re looking for love, head to an evening discussion group or a networking event where you can exchange ideas with people who share your interests.
A moody morning gives way to an exciting afternoon, so don't stress if you start the day feeling grouchy and stymied by stupid human tricks. Avoid interactions that push your buttons, and flag any emails that stress you out and deal with them later in the day, when they won't get so far under your skin. When the moon heads into Gemini midday, your sense of humor returns, along with your festive spirit. Slip off for a blowout or chair massage at lunch; stop to try on that top that's hypnotizing you from the boutique's sale rack. And if it looks good on you, get it. You may need something to wear for the evening when a spontaneous dinner date or invitation to a cultural event pops up in your feed.
Watch your words, Aquarius. Erratic Uranus (your ruling planet) takes a retrograde backspin in Aries, your communication house, until December 30. Shock value has often worked in your favor (so avant-garde! So daring!), but for the next five months it will draw bad publicity if you take it too far. Your innovative ideas and edgy statements can easily be misconstrued. Save the launch of that searing, tell-all blog for 2017. Retrogrades are best for reviewing and revamping, so tweak your plans before making any grand debuts. Pay special mind to tastefulness versus offensiveness in your conversations and all written correspondence.
Oh hi, vixen vibes. Messenger Mercury decamps to your sultry eighth house for an extended voyage that lasts until October 7. Your powers of seduction will definitely be potent! But beam those charms selectively so you attract people who can match your depth. You won’t be in the mood for superficial interaction, but if a connection comes with chemistry on multiple levels (physical, naturally, but also emotional and soulful), you’ll be all in. Your fascination with a mystical or spiritual subject intensifies now. With Mercury here, you could easily expand your own intuitive powers. Sunday's moon in Cancer sprinkles practical magic into the day. You'll actually have the momentum for household projects so if there's one you want to tackle, dive in. But don't spend the whole day vacuuming up dust bunnies and obsessively arranging shelves. Spend some time out in nature, if only to pick up a week's worth of fresh produce at a farmer's market or ride your bike on a few errand runs. Catch up with a female friend who's been pinging you for advice. Your out-of-the-box wisdom is just what she needs.
