Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Relax, relate, release. Today the moon in your eighth house of intimacy forms a supportive angle to harmonious Venus in your healing sector. A grudge you’ve been hanging on to could melt away in one honest conversation. Schedule time for a heart-to-heart—best done in a private place where messy crying won’t be repressed. Air your grievances but avoid blaming: It always takes two to tango, and your views on the situation are bound to change once you hear the other person’s side. If you aren’t getting a warm response to your efforts, perhaps it’s time to put the relationship on ice and explore more fulfilling connections…with other people.
Down the truth serum and follow it with a chaser of compassion. Today’s quarter moon in Taurus and your candid ninth house makes it impossible to stuff down your honest feelings. While you don’t have to couch your sentiment in false platitudes or niceties, you should aim for diplomacy. A helpful technique is to speak in “I language.” For example, “I would like to spend more quality time together” will go down a whole lot smoother than “You never make time for me.” Get it? Also, ask questions instead of flinging accusations. That way you will build bridges instead of burning them.
Visionary Virgo is in the house! Today innovative Uranus locks into a powerful formation with clever Mercury, and the genius ideas just flow. Because of the position of both planets, you'll be attracted to the esoteric realm. Get mystical, Virgo: Take out your divination deck and draw a card to use as a guide for your research and exploration. You could also try bibliomancy: Pull any book off the shelf and open to a random page. The passage you read could be chock full of wisdom—even if you don’t see its significance right away.
You're in touch with your truth this morning and could wake up with a white light insight—or scrawl one into your journal while you're sipping your coffee. But don't race to dash off a tweet or email to share this illumination. With the moon heading into your professional sector for two-plus days this afternoon, you need to consider the impact your communication will have on your career. Being too "live out loud" in a public forum could adversely affect you, and THAT level of honesty isn't always the best policy when it comes to your colleagues. Mull over your message. Then edit, remix and post with polish so your meaningful words don't get lost in translation.
Grab your oars—you may be swept out on the emotion ocean today. Unpredictable Uranus goes retrograde (backward) for five months in Aries, your eighth house of intimacy and intense feelings. Suppressed stuff could be dredged up between now and the end of the year. Rather than unleash those tsunamis of jealousy, rage and possessiveness on an unsuspecting person, use them to guide your self-healing. Is your partner, for example, really untrustworthy? Or do your “trust issues” stem from events much further back? (More than likely choice B.) Keep a journal by your side and your therapist on speed dial. It could get intense...but interesting.
Uncensored Virgo is on the loose! On Saturday communication planet Mercury (your ruler) kicks off a long tour through your sign and removes all filters. Until October 7 keeping it real is the most important thing. Brush up your social media profiles and all personal branding materials to make sure you are representing true to Virgo form. Warning: With Mercury in this fiery position, you could feel waves of anger that you’ve suppressed for a while—especially during the retrograde from August 30 to September 22. Before you unleash any diatribes, work through the emotions with a levelheaded coach or therapist. That way, discussions will be constructive, building bridges instead of burning them down. On Sunday check your privilege. An opportunity to stick up for the underdog could arise, and you won’t forgive yourself if you stay silent. Use your pull to influence your friends in other ways: Invite a new girl or cool-but-shy person to join your squad for an afternoon hang. You can help them get past the socially awkward icebreaker phase—and you’ll reap the rewards with an expanded friend group.
