Weekend extender, anyone? Archers get some bonus playtime this morning as fiery Mars (in your sign) forms a cheery trine with the moon in your fifth house. If you're glued to your desk until quitting time, devise a raucous escape plan for a night on the town with friends. It's okay to blow off a little steam tonight, Sag—you've earned it. But if you're submerged in your to-do list, spend a few minutes arranging an epic Friday night out instead. Look up a venue to catch some live entertainment, dancing and drinks, and let this motivate the rest of your workweek.
Curb your enthusiasm? Never, Sagittarius! This morning's fifth house moon finds you percolating with passion. Let it bubble over but remember this: If you want other people to hop on the ride with you, a simple plan works best. When the moon heads into your practical sixth house mid-day, pop on the project manager's chapeau and start mapping out the particulars of HOW you're going to pull off this three-ring circus in your mind. Tonight, downshift into a healthier groove. You might forgo the Monday night happy hour in lieu of a detoxifying yoga class. Hey, you can still meet friends for dinner afterwards…and be their DD.
Stop apologizing, Sagittarius! Saying "I'm sorry" every time you decline an unreasonable offer, bump into a chair, or do something nice for yourself is not an empowering way to move through the world. People are not as fragile as you think, and those who are may have issues that only a therapist can handle. Unless you've truly made a mistake, declare this a "no apologies" day. You may need to push back against a family member or close friend who keeps bossing your around. Check her lovingly though—she probably DOES have your best interests at heart.
Anyone can criticize, Archer, but constructive feedback would be far more useful to the other party. Early today the moon finishes its run in high-touch Taurus and your detail-minded sixth house. If you've got something to say, make sure you coat it with a little honey—or at least strip off the harsh acerbic finish. Later in the day, when la luna shifts into charming Gemini and your partnership corner, you'll see firsthand how many more flies you'll catch this way—and how much nicer that is for YOU.
How dynamic are those duos, Archer? Assess your closest connections under the light of today's quarter moon. Is there a proper balance of give and take? If you've been heaping on the generous acts without equal retribution, pause. Allow the other person to return the favor, which might not happen on your speedy timeline. Otherwise, resentment will build, and you could inadvertently leave the other party feeling pressured. Conversely, who are the silent supporter and unsung heroes of your crew? Go out of your way to thank them today and make sure they don't feel taken for granted.
The weekend's cosmic riddle: If YOU don't speak up for yourself, Archer, who will? A tangled angle between gentle Venus and forceful Mars in your sign has you doubting your own instincts. On the one hand, you fear that if you DO say something, you might come on too strong. At the same time, you're tired of going along to get along. Your hunches are probably right on, but if you're stuck, ask a wise friend to be your sounding board and help you sort out exactly what you want to say. On Sunday, it could be YOU who is lending the insight as communicative Mercury aligns with instinctive Neptune in your nurturing fourth house. A female friend or relative may be in particular need of a reality check. With compassionate Neptune guiding your intuition, follow a sudden urge to contact this person. You could make a huge difference for her by administering a gentle dose of truth serum.
