“You don’t strike me as the princess type.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
Daniel smiled. “It means that I’d still go out of my way to rescue you, but you’d probably smack me across the head and try to slay the dragon yourself.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ARIES! The Sun glides easily from Pisces into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, just before midnight tonight. Read more about Aries at the end of today’s forecast.

Early this morning, the Aquarius moon squares Venus, planet of finances, love, creativity, and relationships, and Mars meets Jupiter in Capricorn. There are huge opportunities arising for expansion (perhaps globally), opening new doors, revealing your potential and the potential in situations.

Situations are moving to a whole new level, and you’re playing with the big boys now, which will mean taking on greater responsibility. But the moon is void-of-course today, so it would be best to reflect on your options now. Tomorrow, the moon enters Pisces and you’ll be ready to make choices.

Then the Moon is void-of-course for the rest of the day until it’s arrival in Pisces tomorrow morning at 5:33 AM PDT. There is a degree of luck in this atmosphere that may help to keep us from completely thrashing about fruitlessly. The myriad of insights that began popping up yesterday need time to ‘percolate’ before we have the opportunity to choose a new path or break ground on a new project. We may easily fall into a trap of over-optimism. Alternatively, we may somehow feel that we are not being recognized appropriately for past effort. In essence, today provides us with a ‘void’ that allows us to set aside the past in preparation for our future.

Saturn enters Aquarius tomorrow for the first time since 1994. Saturn has been transiting Capricorn since December 2017, teaching you important lessons and asking you to dig for your integrity.

Move in awareness of what you’ve learned over this time. You’ve matured, grown, and, hopefully, grown wiser. Events today are bringing home the lessons of the past two and one-half years. This is a chance to embody the lessons you’ve learned and your wisdom as you move forward.


Today is the 78th day of 2020
93 days until the Summer Solstice
91 days until Mercury Retrograde
288 days until 2021

From You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. Although it’s a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don’t take on more than you can handle. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood. While Jupiter bestows gifts, these can be wasted if we go to great excess. As well, because Jupiter, which rules expansion, is in Saturn’s sign, which rules contraction, it’s best not to go overboard.

This can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and increased recognition.

With this transit, there are several possible scenarios that depend on your particular situation. Your hard work and effort can be recognized now. You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. You take great pride in the work you do. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You can be quite charismatic in a position of authority or responsibility. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now. Your reputation may be enhanced in some significant way. You have more faith in your goals and aspirations during this period of your life.

This is a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities for you. For the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your reach. You’re in a period in which you find considerably more joy in your work or feel particularly good about where you’re heading.

Your worldly or public status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma, an important award, or marriage — something official.

This can be a time for coming into the limelight in a significant way. Authority figures or other influential people tend to look upon you favorably, see more potential in you, and readily help you along, so work it! Something might happen now, or circumstances are such, that your career (or professional interests in general) expands, and you find more joy and pleasure from your work. You could enjoy more freedom, or possibly even responsibilities, in your career. Either way, it’s a move for the better in your mind. Integrity, directness, and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards–this is not the time to be a shrinking violet!
