Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Grandiose plans? Check! Your visionary powers are strong and focused today. But executing them could be a little challenging thanks to a tense square between the dreamiest planets, the moon and Neptune. Sure, you’re dying to hit the gas on this, but there are things going on beneath the surface that may slow your roll. Trust that any delays are for your benefit. Use this time to do a little blue-sky thinking and allow your subconscious to lead you in the right direction. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

You may be clear about something you need to get off your chest, but today’s cosmic conflict might scramble your signals. With the ambiguous moon squaring nebulous Neptune, it’s hard to know who you should trust. There are some unreliable wolves skulking around in sheep’s clothing, and they are likely to twist or misconstrue your words to their advantage. Keeping things bottled up isn’t the answer, so reach out to a true-blue friend or therapist and vent. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

With inspired Neptune in your career corner, you could make major progress on a creative project today. But since the hazy planet is forming a tense square to the emo moon in your relationship realm, “someone” could resent so much of your time being devoted to work. Tough call, Gemini. Can you set some boundaries at the job and make a point of having quality one-on-one time this evening—phones away and paying full attention to them and only them? See the full week >

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

With the moon spinning through your sixth house of wellness, you might be thinking of ways you can “green up” your diet and squeeze in more physical activity. Both are worthy pursuits—but not if they send you into a deprivation mindset. La luna is getting reality-checked by Neptune. Since your sensitive sign is prone to emotional eating, you need to honor your tendencies and take them into account. So rather than completely curtail certain epicurean treats, make your motto “extreme moderation.” See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Be careful if you play with fire, Leo. With the most “boundary-challenged” planets, the moon and Neptune, locked in a tense square in your romantic houses, the sparks you create with a little lighthearted flirting could conflate into a five-alarm fire. You may only see what you want to see and miss the fact that your innocent fun is inadvertently leading someone on. Or that your romantic interest is throwing you some totally unexpected shade. Whatever you do, take it SLOW today! See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

With the moon touring your comfy-cozy fourth house, you probably won’t be in the mood for a loud and boisterous evening. But a tense square from confusing Neptune in your relationship realm could throw a monkey wrench into your plans when your S.O. or close friend pressures you to spend time together tonight. See if you can compromise: Say no to braving an actual restaurant. But definitely be open to hanging at one of your places, ordering delivery and gabbing the night away. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

High stress alert! You could feel on edge today thanks to a signal-scrambling square between the two least concrete planets, the moon and Neptune. Your sign thrives on clear communication, and you’re likely to melt down when everything comes out like you’re speaking in tongues. Stop, reassess and regroup—just don’t turn to sugary or processed foods or cocktails. That will only backfire and leave you feeling less grounded. Slip off for a midday mediation or fire up your yoga app. That always does the trick! See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You may find it hard to concentrate today, Scorpio, which wouldn’t be so bad if you didn’t have deadlines intensifying your stress levels. You know you need to be productive, but thanks to a sidetracking moon-Neptune mashup, your thoughts are anywhere but where they should be. Use your fierce Scorpionic willpower to make yourself focus, and set up mini-milestones along the way. Every time you reach one, “reward” yourself with a little break—or just five minutes of unfiltered daydreaming! See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You may feel stretched to your limits today as a family member or close pal asks you to play life coach or tech support when your plate is already full. With the moon in liberated Sagittarius, you really want to fly solo. But because la luna’s getting a tense beam from compassionate Neptune, you might not be able to resist this person’s petitions. Can you take care of you first and be there for them later? Denying this need will only lead to serious resentment. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Today’s secret word: boundaries! If you’ve been giving too much (again), cease and desist! You know it leaves you drained and resentful, and ultimately, it’s not doing the other party any good either. Eventually they’re going to have to learn to stand on their own two feet. Today, under a foggy meetup of the moon and Neptune, someone might try to pull a codependent move. Try to catch yourself before you get sucked in too far. Remind yourself that “No” is a complete sentence. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Time for a reality check about your finances! It’s fun to pretend you have all the money in the world, but get real, Aquarius! In trying to keep up with the Joneses or impress your friends, you may have racked up a fair bit of debt. Today’s moon-Neptune square in your friends and money houses could send you on a spending spree or cause you to act irresponsibly. Catch yourself BEFORE it’s too late, and instantly redirect. There’s no shame in saying no to things you truly can’t afford. See the full week >

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

A leadership opportunity may have your name all over it, Pisces—but are YOU blocking yourself from seizing it? Today’s murky mashup of the moon and your ruler, nebulous Neptune, could ratchet up your insecurities and cause you to miss out on something that would be perfect for you and your career. A little apprehension about a new prospect is normal— healthy, even—but if you’re veering into self-doubt territory, talk to a supportive friend or career coach so you can carpe that diem!
