The Moon squares Venus today, making us all feel a little needy for love and affection. People in relationships will need extra care and attention from their partners, while those who are single might feel lonely. When the Moon goes sextile with Mercury later today, it will be a good time to talk about what caused these feelings, whether it’s with your S.O. or with your friends.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, you might be craving for some validation from your partner today when the Moon squares Venus. You’re usually very confident, but today, it’s a little hard to manifest that energy when you really need to hear your partner say the right words. It might cause some misunderstanding in your relationship if you don’t get the validation you need. If you’re single, you might be seeking the same from your crush or your friends. When the Moon goes sextile with Mercury later today, you’ll be back on your feet realizing that you don’t need outside validation to know you’re worthy of love, Aries.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’ve always been secure in your finances, and this has partly been the source of your confidence in yourself, but today, when the Moon squares Venus, you find yourself feeling as if this is not enough. You need the company of your friends to feel loved and cared for. Perhaps you miss talking to them about nothing and everything, catching up on each other’s lives, and feeling like no one else in the world gets you but them. If you’re in a relationship, be careful, because an insecure partner might feel jealous of this deep connection with your friends. It will be the perfect time to talk with them to resolve this jealousy issue when the Moon goes sextile with Mercury later today, when our judgments are less clouded and we’re more capable of thinking rationally.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, you depend on your career and status for your source of confidence today. This means you’re dedicating your energy into working really hard in order to feel secure in yourself. Not being able to do this might have dire consequences in your confidence and self-esteem. However, being hyper fixated on your work might make you forget about nurturing your personal relationships as well, including your romantic partner, if you’re in a relationship. While it’s completely valid to want to further your career in order to feel confident in yourself, don’t forget that you have a life outside of work as well, Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, your subconscious mind clashes with your conscious today. If you’ve been single for a while, maybe you’re starting to believe you’re better off alone, that there’s no one else who could take better care of you than you…but subconsciously, you still want to be loved by someone special. Someone who knows exactly what you need, who knows the right words to say when you’re down. If you’re in a relationship, you might still feel the same, but it will manifest in a feeling of discontent with your partner. When the Moon meets Mercury in a sextile formation later today, it might be a good idea to communicate these needs to your partner or to talk your worries out with a friend. Don’t be afraid of sharing these worries with a loved one, Cancer, because that’s the only way you’ll get clarity. Don’t drive yourself insane trying to find the answers all on your own.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
A deeper kind of intimacy will be established between you and your friends today, Leo, and you will feel really thankful for it. You’ll start seeing your friends in a different light, through a lens you’ve never viewed them before. You’ll feel extremely lucky having friends that get you. Lines between romantic and platonic might get blurry, and you’ll be confused about whether or not this intimacy is romantic or it’s simply a friendship you’ve never had before. When the Moon meets Mercury in a delicate dance later today, you’re given the clarity you need. A little deliberation, and perhaps some advice from your loved ones, can give you the answer you’re looking for, and help you draw a clear line between romantic and platonic love.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Work and personal life meets in collision for you today, Virgo. You’re torn between paying attention to your partner or your crush or just put this attention towards work and achieving your goals instead. As a career person, you feel like romance is distracting you from your goals. This makes you want to end the romantic affair you’re in, even if this person is someone really important to you, because you always put your career first. Later today, you might find some benefit in deliberating whether or not this person is worth your energy. Talking with them might help you figure out how the relationship can stop distracting you from work—if they’re the right person, they will help you achieve your goals rather than be a hindrance between you and your career goals.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Your desire for adventure interferes with your need to take care of your health and well-being today, Libra, and this includes your love life. If you’re single, you might want to get out there and mingle, meet new people, and maybe even find someone you can be in a relationship with, but emotionally, you’re not ready yet. This might be because a recent relationship has ended badly, or you’ve been through a string of toxic relationships that you haven’t emotionally processed yet. On the other hand, if you’re in a relationship, you might desire to try new things with your S.O. but fear that this might endanger the bond of your relationship. Later today, it will be a good idea to talk to your partner about this, and who knows? Maybe they’re up for the adventure you desire. If you’re single, talking with a trusted loved one about these issues might help soothe the ache brought about by the void of being alone.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, your love life is really good right now, and it makes you feel sad—and maybe even resentful—that your family was never able to give you the same kind of love. If you’re in a relationship, perhaps you’ve finally met someone who brings out the best in you, who loves you for who you are, and loves you the way you need to be loved. If you’re single, you might have finally learned to love yourself the way no one else can, the way no one else was ever able to—including your family. Whether or not you’ll forgive, forget, or simply move forward is up to you, Sagittarius. Choose whatever brings you the most peace.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re prone to overthinking things, Capricorn, and today, this tendency becomes even more apparent. Perhaps you’ve finally met someone good, and you keep thinking about the million ways it could go wrong, the million mistakes you could make. Or maybe you’re at a happy point in your life right now, and it feels like you’re only waiting for the ball to finally drop. And this tendency to overthink is really affecting your mental health, Capricorn. You just don’t know how to stop. Getting advice from your trusted friends or family can help you find the peace you’re looking for, Capricorn. You don’t have to do this alone.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, today you’re getting in touch with your subconscious desires, and it will be the perfect time to establish a deeper kind of intimacy with your partner or your friends. You’re starting to learn where your subconscious patterns are rooted, what causes your toxic behaviors, and the reasons behind your emotional needs as well. However, you might feel a little shame realizing some of these subconscious behaviors, feeling wary of sharing them with your loved ones in fear of being judged, but not to worry—when the Moon meets Mercury in a sextile formation later today, rest assured that your S.O. or your friends will welcome your vulnerability with open arms rather than judge you for things you have no control over.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, your own interests and goals might contradict what your family—including your partner—wants for you today, and it’s giving you so much stress. You don’t know if you should follow what they say or follow your heart instead. Even more, you’re not sure if they truly want what’s best for you or if they’re just projecting. If you know, in your heart, that you’re the only one who knows the path you need to take, sitting with them and talking about it might resolve the issue. It’s time for you to be firm in your decision to choose your own path. If they still don’t listen, it’s up to you to go down that path, without them, if you must. Finding friends and other loved ones who support you for your decision can help, because you’ll still need a strong support system especially if the path you chose is harsh and difficult.
