Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
You've talked a big game lately and that's okay—but it's time to step up to the plate, Cancer! Back up your lofty promises with hard data and you'll be an unstoppable force of nature. You have the support of the cosmos today with the moon in your ambitious tenth house motivator Mars in your sixth house of wellness. Is it time to start that fitness regimen you've been putting off? If you're not sure which activities might suit you best, sign up for ClassPass and try 'em all. Ditch the excuses and get moving—the stars are encouraging you to be your best, healthiest self.
Strike while the iron is hot! You're large-and-in-charge this morning, Cancer, an obvious fit for a leadership role. You won't get much (if any) resistance from people if you need to issue orders or assign tasks. This afternoon, however, adopt a more democratic approach. With the moon heading into your teamwork zone for a couple days, you'll be ready to hand off some of the responsibility instead of carrying all the weight on your shoulders. Meeting people after work? Make your mantra, "the more, the merrier." Sparks could fly with a friend of a friend.
There's no ignoring the Millennial pink elephant in the room today, Cancer. The question is: Can you diplomatically point it out? An enchanted alignment of Venus and Neptune helps you broach the touchiest subjects without ruffling a feather. If anything, be careful not to soft pedal something that's actually serious. It can help to buffer the critique by placing it in the middle of a "praise sandwich." Start by acknowledging what IS working well and end with a compliment. If you're dealing with a fierce opponent, this dignified approach may convince him to lay down his sword.
Catch up on your emails and return those phone calls early in the day, while the moon is in your collaborative eleventh house. You've still got bandwidth to deal with other people (and their issues)—but you may not by the end of the day, when la luna shifts into Gemini and your restful, meditative twelfth house. If you've signed on for a group dinner, find a gracious way to bow out. Then make some calls and see which of your favorite spas can squeeze you in for a hot-stone massage…before you head home and have a date with Hulu.
Spend any spare time you have today dreaming or decluttering—or maybe a little bit of both. With a quarter moon in twelfth house, rolling out of bed won't be easy. Frankly, you could use the down time to relax, refresh, and let your mind wander at will. You might even drum up your next vacation or get inspired to take a road trip while you're zoning out. This fantasy-fueled moon could see a special guest star lounging on the pillow next to yours tonight—ooh la la! Got a few loose ends to tie up first? When you've finished your third cup of coffee, tackle your closet, bagging things up for a charitable donation and maybe an eBay sale.
So much for that "live and let live" policy you adopted last week. The weekend's stressful dust-up between diplomatic Venus in your idealistic ninth house and domineering Mars could spark a clash of the titans. You want what you want when you want it, but that doesn't mean everybody's going to fall in line. Step back and look at the people you're judging so harshly. If you're honest with yourself, Cancer, is it really THEM you're upset with? Or is this your own stuff coming up? It might be a little bit of both so own your part in the matter. Expressing yourself diplomatically will be easier on Sunday as compassionate Neptune softens mouthy Mercury's candor. With both planets teamed up in your truth-telling ninth house, you won't back down from your beliefs. But you'll also be willing to extend the benefit of the doubt—the very thing that creates a safe space for communication. If your emotions are still cooling, take a timeout on Sunday. A change of scenery will restore you to serenity. How about a road trip with "me, myself and I?"
