When the Sun turns its back on the Moon this morning, we’ll find our sense of duty and our passions clashing with each other. We’ll feel a need to compromise with others, but we will also fear being taken advantage of. Even though we willingly give more than you take, resentment builds as we’re not given enough of what we deserve.
Today, it’s important to learn how to differentiate between people-pleasing and a genuine desire to help. The former only gives short-term self-gratification, while the latter provides a true sense of fulfillment. Learning this will teach us how to compromise with others without giving too much of ourselves.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, today you believe that romance is but a hindrance to your dreams, but that doesn’t stop you from wanting it. You dream about achieving great milestones, but when you get to the top, to whose arms do you come home to? You don’t think you can have both, so you force yourself to choose. But you don’t have to choose, Aries. Only toxic love will force you to choose one over the other. A healthy partner will teach you that love is not an inhibition, but a nourishment that sustains you ‘til you’re strong enough to reach for the stars.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’re capable of saying what you feel, but your past experiences invokes a fear that holds you back from being vulnerable. You seek romance, to love again with a brand new heart, but you know you haven’t healed enough to love again. There’s no rush, dear Taurus, so don’t run from the past—learn from it. Learning the lessons from your past is just what you need to fix your romantic compass, and in the end, it will guide you to the right person’s arms.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, fostering intimacy with your loved ones is essential to your growth, but you’re far too concerned about what’s on the surface to establish depth in your relationships. You like partners who are shiny on the outside, and then you act surprised when you see that they’re merely stones painted in gold. You want to find real love, but how would you do that if you’re beholden to toxic patterns that always drive you to the wrong people? True love is terrifying, especially when all you know is the toxic kind, but you won’t get the love you need if you’re constantly running away from it.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, you’ve always been fearless in the pursuit of love, but today you wonder: should I put myself first? It’s true that we need to learn more about ourselves to get the love we deserve, but you don’t have to be your “best self” to chase after the love you desire. The essence of being human is being imperfect, and learning that you don’t need to be perfect to deserve true love will free your heart.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, today you’re focused on getting your life together, but your exhaustion is catching up with you. You’ve overextended yourself to the point of burnout. While it’s important to always be there for our loved ones, to have an ear to lend when your partner needs to be heard, you must also take care of yourself, dear. How would you be able to help others if you can’t even help yourself?
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
People often tell you you’re uptight, Virgo, that you need to let loose and have fun, but you can’t help it. When you’re out with friends, you feel compelled to be the responsible one. You always volunteer to be the designated driver. You stay sober so you can take care of your friends when they get wasted. You’re the one who makes sure they get home safe when they’re drunk. If being the mom friend makes you feel emotionally fulfilled, then perhaps you’re not being uptight—it’s just in your nature to take care of the people you love.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you feel compelled to settle down, but is that really what your heart wants? You work hard to achieve your goals, but you also like the praise that comes with it. You like that when you shine, the light reaches a two-mile radius. But you fear that at some point, you will be forced to settle down. Understand that settling down is not a duty you need to take on if you don’t want it, Libra. You don’t have to be the domesticated spouse if what you truly want is to be a career person.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, your hard work in your relationships will pay off today as you see them grow like a healthy, well-nourished house plant. If you’re with a long-term partner, when you look back, you will see how far you’ve come. This kind of love makes you a little sad that you can’t apply the same to yourself. It’s not mutually exclusive, Scorpio. We learn to love ourselves by loving others, and if you already know how to love your partner and your friends, you already have a good place to start.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, today you realize just how much you put your worth in your money and material possessions, and it makes you wonder if you need to pay more attention to your personal relationships. Your ego is validated by your ability to easily get what you want, but you know, deep inside, that the things that matter don’t come as easily. Allow yourself to be rid of the need for material validation, and you will get the meaningful connections you yearn for.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, you’re the main character today as the Sun continues its transit in your house of the self. This reminds you of the importance of focusing on yourself and your personal growth, but your mind and heart are not aligned. While you know you need to focus on self-improvement, you feel a yearning for romantic love. You might even find yourself neglecting your personal responsibilities in your pursuit of it. Don’t get lost in a fantasy, Capricorn, this is not you! Don’t let your yearning turn into obsession—you will only lose yourself in the end.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Buried feelings will resurface today, Aquarius, and you will have no choice but to face them. Problems you have long ignored will catch up to you and disrupt your routine. If you feel you’ve only been starting to get your life together, brace yourself, as the walls you’ve worked so hard to build will all come crashing down today. You have to have seen this coming, Aquarius. You didn’t make your feelings go away when you ran away from them, so don’t be surprised when they catch up to you.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, you love your friends more than anything in the world—the company they provide, the unmatched intimacy you’ve established with them…but something in your heart longs for more. Your friends are there for lunches, dinners, and Saturday nights out, but to whom do you come home to by the end of the day? If you’re in a relationship but still yearn for a more meaningful connection, take that as a sign that you’re with the wrong person. Know that it’s perfectly fine to feel content with your friends but still desire a romantic relationship, Pisces, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ungrateful.
