Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
As the zodiac's patron nurturer, you’re wary of getting mixed up in groups—your heartstrings get tugged way too easily. Yet today's quarter moon in Taurus shows you the benefit of teaming up. As long as you get involved on your terms—i.e., feel free to announce you're NOT Mother Teresa—you can enjoy the benefit of pooling resources and increasing brainpower exponentially. Plus, having close connections you don't feel personally indebted to or responsible for can be incredibly healing.
Caution: Power struggles ahead. With Venus touring Cancer, you're learning great lessons about caring for yourself. But today the love planet faces off with controlling Pluto in your relationship house. Someone you adore may react negatively to your newfound confidence, preferring to see you in a more submissive role. Stand your ground, Cancer, and let people know that your name is not Anastasia Steele. On the other hand, you may be drawn to someone who emanates authority. While you love a challenge, playing second fiddle won't be fun for long.
Guilt weighing you down again, Crab? Just because you said no to someone doesn't mean you have to carry an emotional burden. Setting boundaries is healthy, especially for a nurturing soul like yourself. It's one thing to be of service to others, but quite another if that comes at the expense of your own self-care. You don't need to prove your love. And if you DO, maybe a few of these imbalanced relationships should be cut loose. Tonight, try rolling with a new crowd for some refreshing new energy.
Today your temperature will run hot and cold, so don't lock yourself down in one place for too long. An ebullient morning mood could crash by noon, then restore your social surge at four. Having unstructured "me time" is a must, so take a personal day (or get an early start on the weekend) if the boss won't stop breathing down your neck. When planning the evening, take this into account: You’ll only resent sticking around to help a colleague after hours or if you attend a friend's event when you're totally crashing. Sure, you want to be supportive, but not at your own expense. Be honest about your need to bounce—when a Cancer has gotta go, you've GOT to go.
The truth WILL set you free, o’ sensitive one, but no one said it would be easy (or fun). If you told a little white lie to protect someone's feelings, it may come back to haunt you now. Today's supportive sync-up of the most emotional planets—compassionate Neptune and your ruler, the moon—urges you to spill the beans. Ask for forgiveness. You never know: This person could wind up respecting you more for your integrity than the cover-up.
Taking care of everyone else has eclipsed your own needs once again, Cancer, but that changes on Saturday. With the moon and decadent Venus canoodling in your sign, put YOUR desires front and center. While you are exceptionally good at intuiting people’s desires, it’s not fair to expect others to do the same. Don’t waste your time feeling resentful because they aren’t reciprocating—just ask for what you need. Let your independent side out to play, too. Dust off a passion project or make a bold move to accelerate your ascent up the ladder. And if you’re longing for a massage, go for the luxury package with the hydrotherapy pre-treatment. On Sunday, you may wake up in a productive mood. Train your laser-like concentration on one thing and focus on it alone. With the moon in your industrious second house, you can accomplish a lot IF you can shut out the distractions. Silence your phone and tuck it away out of sight. Even if you have a full-page punch list, don't even glance at it. Just pick two or three super-high-priority items and tackle them one after another. Before the weekend is through, you can celebrate turning "to do" into "ta da"!
