Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Are your emotions derailing your attempts at a healthy lifestyle, Aries? Instead of numbing the pain with a plate of comfort food or checking out for yet another Netflix binge, get real about what you’re feeling. Avoidance won’t make the angst go away, especially if it’s wreaking havoc on your well-being. Reach out to a close friend or trusted relative to work out what’s been bothering you. You prefer to shoulder the tough stuff on your own, but in this case, you could benefit from a helping hand. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Reserve judgment today, Taurus, and if that’s not possible, at least give others an opportunity to tell their side of the story. You tend to put people’s actions under review, but you could be unduly harsh with someone in your life. You never know: That cranky or unfriendly person could be struggling with a tough personal issue. Be compassionate, not critical. If your negative assessment ends up being true, then you can confront them. But if kindness turns out to be the cure, you might end up forging a new friendship. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

A few frugal moves can go a long way, Gemini. Today’s moon in your money house draws your financial goals into the spotlight. If you’ve got your sights set on a big-ticket item, you’re going to need to pull those purse strings a little tighter. Cut back on delivery or give DIY mani-pedis a whirl. Fill up your travel coffee mug and reusable water bottle at home. Those little savings DO add up and help you afford that pricier purchase. See the full week >

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

A little exaggeration is totally harmless, right? Maybe not. With the moon in your sign today, you’re prone to embellishing, which could raise some eyebrows. Skip the hyperbole, or people may question your credibility. Channel that larger-than-life romanticism into one of your creative ventures: a home decor project, song lyrics, a short story. But when dealing with others, keep it real. Stay modest and let your accomplishments speak for themselves. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Your snooze button gets a workout this morning as the moon lingers in your sleepy twelfth house. You’ll be a little slow on the uptake, so if you can, put off any challenging tasks until Saturday, when la luna moves into Leo and reboots your energy. But don’t let hibernation derail ALL productivity. You’ll feel especially creative and compassionate today—perfect for dreaming up DIY projects and connecting with loved ones. The planets call for pampering too. Wrap up your workday with a well-deserved massage. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

There’s strength in numbers, Virgo! Skip the solo act and pour your energy into a group effort. If you’re part of a collective that’s lost its team spirit, deliver a motivational pep talk. Is there a weak link in the chain? Meet privately to get to the bottom of things. If the slacker-in-question is not invested in the shared goal, you might amicably part ways. You’ve got too much resting on this project to let anyone derail its success. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Today, the moon illuminates your ambitious tenth house, giving you a sharpshooter’s focus. If your career hasn’t been advancing as fast as you’d like, don’t despair. This lunar energy puts you back in the driver’s seat, helping you regain momentum again. Make clarity your goal and take a phased approach. For example: What would you like to accomplish before the end of the year? Be as detailed as possible, and it will be easier to manifest. Map it out to make sure your plan is bulletproof.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Tone down the snark, Scorpio. Today’s outspoken moon urges you to be conscious of those edgy comments and comebacks. Your zingers could wound a sensitive soul, especially if you tip those poison arrows with a hint of truth. Ouch! Text your witty one-liner to a friend instead of posting it as a status update. Or maybe chuckle silently then keep it to yourself. One good laugh is just not worth the risk of alienating an important contact. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Privacy is underrated, Archer. Today’s moon in your below-the-radar eighth house encourages you to think before you blurt. When you feel the burning need to retell a colorful story or share a controversial opinion, count to ten instead. Cultivate a little mystique and leave people wondering where you stand—it can be a powerful negotiating tool. Plus it will keep you out of distracting drama and focused on your bigger goals. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Pause to assess your partnerships, Capricorn. With the moon activating your relationship house, it’s a great day to clear the air. If you’re attached, get disagreements and pending issues onto the table. Are you on the same page about the future? Some compromises may be in order. Single? A person in your circle could have potential as a long-term mate. Or one of your friends might be able to make a promising introduction. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Today’s stars sound the call for healthy living, but skip the “no pain, no gain” philosophy. Inject some fun into your wellness plans instead of forcing yourself through a deprivation-based diet or agonizing cardio class. Take a brisk 30-minute walk with a friend or pet. Apply the same principle to your plate: Research nourishing recipes or sign up for a healthy meal-delivery service. There’s no need to suffer through another iceberg wedge and bland grilled chicken meal. See the full week >

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Today’s emo Cancer moon pumps up your passion, helping you fearlessly express your grand ideas. A creative project could put you in the public eye. Polish your image and branding, making sure they really express your essence. Work with a stylist or graphic designer if you need a savvy upgrade. Romance is on the lunar agenda today, too. Reserve the evening for a date night, whether you’re meeting an online prospect or taking a starlit stroll with your longtime love. See the full week >
