This afternoon, we must brace ourselves as our beliefs are challenged when the Moon forms an unbalanced aspect with Jupiter. We will start questioning everything, but the deliberation will mostly be directed inwards. We’ll ask ourselves: what are the motivations behind my actions and aspirations? This will challenge the emotional dynamics in your relationships, as we wonder what it is that makes your partner love you or what makes your friends stay in your life despite the many imperfections you have.
Try not to be driven insane by all these worries—instead, use the lessons you will learn from this transit to improve your relationships.
To learn how the Moon’s face off with Jupiter affects your sign, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You like the thrill of the chase, Aries—it’s why you spend so much time and effort trying to woo your crush or partner to make them love you the way you want to be loved. Sometimes, you might even overcompensate that it becomes more about you than the other person. You seek so much of your self-worth on how you make others feel happy, feeling satisfaction when they feel giddy about the romantic efforts you make. But romance is rarely ever a healthy source of validation, Aries. Self-worth comes from what you make of yourself, not what others make of you.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, gravity pulls you back home today, and you find yourself wanting to spend more time with the people you call your family. You miss the feeling of being in the company of people who make you feel safe, who look at you without judgment even on your worst days. But you can’t help but worry. You can’t stop thinking about what this means for yourself. Does it mean you’re incapable of being alone? But how could you survive if you don’t know how to fend for yourself? Know that you don’t have to do it all on your own, Taurus. Every one of us needs to be loved—it’s not a flaw or a weakness, it’s simply human.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, you like to say what you feel. You firmly believe that life’s too short to play around with lies, so you tell people how you truly feel when you’re asked. But some days, doubt creeps in—you wonder if this is the right way to be. You worry that you’re exposing too much of yourself and setting yourself up to get hurt, and you think about how much better it would be if you just hide your feelings out of plain sight. Your honesty is a strength, Gemini. You’re strong for being able to say how you feel, and you need to learn to rely on this strength—it will prevent you from getting easily knocked down when people try to beat you up.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Do you see what you’re worth, Cancer? If you keep choosing the wrong people, perhaps it’s time for you to realize that the answer is a big, glaring no. Friends play such a huge role in our lives, so if you choose the wrong circle, you’re bound to have a shaky foundation for your self-worth. People who make you feel bad about yourself are obviously not good for you, but you might not be able to see this because you fear losing the people you’ve known for years now. Don’t be afraid of losing people you’ve known for years, because when you leave them, you’re making more space for good people to occupy.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Everyone knows you love yourself, Leo. Some people even think you love yourself too much, but you don’t take this as an insult—in fact, you take it as a compliment. You look back on all the awards and accolades you have accumulated over the years, your friends who are on the same wavelength as you are, and your partner who is just as amazing as you, and all of this justifies the amount of self-love you have. In all this glory, you often forget that people are people, not trophies and medals to wave around for applause. Make sure you’re able to love them back as much as they love you, or you will end up regretting it when they leave.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You like to hide your feelings, Virgo, and you’re so scared of blowing things out of proportion that you end up imploding instead. But today, the stars whisper in your ear: this is not the right way to be. In your desire not to hurt other people, you end up hurting yourself every time. You need to learn how to trust other people, Virgo, especially the people you love. Even if it’s scary, you need to let others know how you feel so they know how you need to be treated.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you often get so emotional when you see how much your friends love you. You feel so lucky to find people you can be intimate with without the fear of getting hurt most of the time. Most of the time—because today, you find that intimacy is scary, and it’s true. Baring all of yourself to another and blindly putting your faith in them, trusting that they won’t hurt you, all sounds so stupid if you look at it. Remember that that’s the essence of love, Libra. Every one of us chooses to love over and over again even with the possibility of getting hurt, because what is life if not to choose to love and be loved?
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
You’ve never liked the spotlight, Scorpio. In fact, you like to hide away, watching and observing everyone in the shadows so you can learn from their mistakes. But you’re aware that there’s a certain attractiveness to mystery. People fear the unknown, but they’re beholden to their curiosity—and you like keeping them on their toes as they try to figure out who you are. It works so well every time that you’re convinced it has the same effect on your relationships, but not really. Hiding who you are from the people in your life means you’ll never understand closeness and intimacy. At some point, you have to let go of the need to be mysterious if you want to be known.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, you have a heart for adventure and risk—you love getting to know strangers and learning their desires and fears, because knowing that something so seemingly different from you has the same feelings as you makes you feel a little less alone in your struggles. Sometimes they’re less accomplished, and sometimes they’re more successful, and the latter scares you so much more. What does that say about you? Let me answer that question for you: it means you should stop comparing yourself to others. Life is not a race to the finish line, it’s a marathon. Don’t run too fast—enjoy the view as you pass by, because it’s more about the journey than the destination.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re scared of intimacy, Capricorn, and it might be shameful to admit, but part of you wants romance. You keep telling people romance is a fool’s pursuit; that romance books and films are so unrealistic, and it would be foolish to want to live a life that these movies portray. But something in you wants the same. You want to feel the high of a crush, the heartbeat-skipping feeling of wanting to be wanted. You don’t have to be ashamed of wanting these very normal desires, Capricorn. When you let go of the need to be superior, the shame that comes from wanting romance also goes away.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Intimate relationships are what make life meaningful for you, Aquarius, but when it comes to family, it’s a little more complicated. Something in you wants to go back home and fix what’s been broken, but you’re afraid it’s beyond repair. Remember that it’s not your responsibility to fix what you didn’t break, Aquarius. The only person you’re responsible for healing is yourself. If you’ve found family somewhere outside the home you grew up in, it’s perfectly okay to choose to stay by their side instead of going back to a place you’ve never felt safe in.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You worry about yourself a lot, Pisces, and it’s justifiable—your heart is soft and you have the purest intentions, and people tend to take advantage of that, which is why it’s reasonable to fear getting hurt. I know it can be too much to bear, but perhaps you need to assert yourself, too. Yes, even with the people you love. You need to tell them what you need, even if your voice breaks. You need to show how you need to be loved so they can treat you right. You need to set the proper boundaries and be firm that they’re not allowed to cross. Kindness is a strength, and establishing strong boundaries is not the opposite of it—you’re just directing the kindness inward instead of outward.
