Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You could get a lightning-fast affirmation today, when a moon-Uranus alliance pings your zone of money and security. Perhaps you find 20 dollars on the street or bump into an old colleague who wants to recommend you for a gig. It may be a small gesture from the divine, but one that’s too coincidental not to notice. Take it as a sign of encouragement that you’re on the right path! And if you’re not, expect a nudge from the cosmos in the near future. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Today, the Pisces moon gets in a friendly flow with radical Uranus in Taurus, rousing your independent spirit. If you’re going to be social, spend time with people who “get” you and encourage you to take risks. A friend’s success story could inspire you to make a long-overdue change, whether to your appearance or your lifestyle. A word to the wise: Unless you want to come out inked, don’t “just drop in” to any tattoo shops. But then again, maybe it’s time to set up an appointment with an artist already. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The line between work and play could blur today, and that’s fine! As a career-focused moon gets a charge from changemaker Uranus in your escapist twelfth house, your flights of fancy could lead to a creative breakthrough. Just don’t swing to out-of-control extremes, overdoing the happy hour bites or bottomless pitchers. Is it time to kick self-defeating habits or unhealthy vices, Gemini? Join a 30-day challenge or work with a coach or mentor to help you devise a realistic structure. Many of these groups meet online, which actually works BETTER for your digitally savvy sign.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Today, a moon-Uranus mashup could bring some variety to your social life. Your security-loving sign tends to gravitate to old friends and go-to crew, but today’s starmap wants you to mix it up. Don’t be afraid to do your own social experimentation—”oil and water” types actually can hit it off. Even a conversation about politics (or another controversial topic) could be fascinating instead of polarizing. Welcome diverse opinions—and personalities. Got something to say yourself? Today’s stars favor putting your big ideas and boldest truths out on social media. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

As the moon syncs with innovative Uranus in your career and long-term planning house, you could be flooded with inspiring visions about “what’s next.” If you’re on the threshold of a creative breakthrough, spend time doing research and development today. Remember: The more you can back this idea up with hard data, the better. If you’re ready to pitch, craft a solid proposal for any ideas. Include a realistic budget and timeline since you may need to roll things out in phases. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

If you’re stuck in a rut—socially or mentally—today’s friendly merger of the moon and Uranus can snap you out of that funk. But don’t turn to the same old friends or creature comforts and expect breakthrough results. Instead, browse metaphysical books and YouTube videos or stream a film with a political or social justice theme. Understanding a community’s plight, especially through art or storytelling, could ignite an activist spark in you. One-on-one time with a broad-minded person can get inspiration flowing and possibly bring the side benefit of a romantic connection. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Today, a moon-Uranus meeting puts you in an investigative mindset. Pop on the detective’s chapeau and research a topic that’s captivated your interest. Have you always wanted to learn your Enneagram number or the meaning behind your moon sign? Learning the nuances of your personality profile won’t box you in, Libra; it just gives you more to work with as you’re plotting out your best life. While you’re at it, tackle any outstanding paperwork or financial planning so you don’t squander this focused energy. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Today, the glamorous Pisces moon gets a beam from radical Uranus in your partnership house. An unexpected opportunity to join forces may arise, perhaps to collaborate on a creative venture. A budding romance could quickly move into the make-it-official zone. If it feels right, who cares how long you’ve known each other? Coupled Scorpios might do something spontaneous—even a little (or a lot) edgy—to jump-start your mojo. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Today’s stars call for deep-cleaning and decluttering as the Pisces moon gets friendly with changemaker Uranus in Taurus and your healthy sixth house. If you’ve been staring at the same quarantine decor for WAY too long now, mix it up. You can pick a totally new color scheme or just add some plants and crystals. Whatever you do, Sagittarius, make sure your space feels soothing instead of distracting. While you’re at it, set up a workout area where you can stretch or do resistance training in between WFH bursts. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You might not be able to control what flies out of your mouth today as the moon gets a jolt from shock jock Uranus. Though you’re feeling bold and opinionated, taking sides could be a little riskier during this short-lived, somewhat turbulent transit. Although there won’t be major damage, your authenticity could definitely ruffle a few feathers. On the upside, your boldness might attract a kindred spirit or an influencer’s attention. Don’t tone it down too much, Cap, or you could miss an opportunity to connect. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Positive changes can happen close to home—or literally in your home—thanks to today’s friendly mashup of the moon and your ruler, changemaker Uranus. That could mean clearing the air with a female relative or finding the perfect quirky piece to tie your decor scheme together. Pondering a move or looking for a roommate? Browse the real estate listings and start your search. You might turn up an unexpected gem in a neighborhood you hadn’t considered. See the full week >

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

The eye-opening conversations keep flowing today, when the moon joins forces with Uranus, planet of surprises. Hear people out and don’t assume you already know what they’re going to say. Someone could frame a situation in a way you never thought of—and even if you don’t agree entirely with their point of view, there’s still something worthwhile to consider. If you get a little pissed off, know that they’ve touched a nerve. So, what IS the truth you’ve been avoiding? Dig deep and don’t shoot the messenger, Pisces! See the full week >
