Repressed emotions are resurfacing today, but we feel a need to push them back down as the mystical Moon squares sensible Saturn. We feel that the logical thing is to keep our feelings hidden, but we have to remember that feelings don’t need to be reasonable—they only need to be felt. Because of this, conflict arises between our emotional needs and our desire for control. The key, however, is to find a perfect balance between intimacy and restraint. If you’d like to learn how your sign can do that, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, the consequences of your previous impulsive actions are all coming back to you now as the Moon squares Saturn. Your desire for romantic adventure might clash with this newfound sense of responsibility, which might hold you back. However, know that it’s important to think twice before acting on your desires, but sometimes, thinking three or more times can be too much and might end up preventing you from living life to the fullest. You can still be spontaneous while being responsible—you just have to learn not to be reckless.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, when the Moon squares Saturn, you may be inclined to seek out intense, passionate relationships—a crush that’s life-ruining, that you’re so attracted to that it makes you want to throw your whole life away just to spend a second with them. However, deep down, you know this kind of love is not the kind that you need. In fact, what you need is to establish more boundaries in your relationships. This might make you feel lonely at first, but trust me: healthy love comes from healthy boundaries as well. Love doesn’t have to hurt to be real, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, when the Moon squares Saturn today, tension might arise between your personal and professional life. You find yourself asking: do I want to further my career, or do I want a life with meaningful relationships that make life worth living? It’s true that you have to sometimes temporarily put one on hold to pursue the other, but that decision doesn’t always have to be final. You just have to learn how to find a good work-life balance in order to get the best of both worlds.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, today you’re focused on improving the health of your relationships, but when the Moon squares Saturn, your pre-existing beliefs about love and romance could affect this endeavor. Perhaps you’ve been in bad relationships in the past, making you inclined to believe you have to hurt and second-guess yourself to feel that “spark.” However, you have to learn how to distinguish healthy attraction from toxic patterns you’ve developed from childhood, Cancer. Remember: it’s only healthy if they’re good for you. Learning this can truly help you change your love life for the better.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, the hopeless romantic in you truly believes in true love, but when the Moon gets into a fight with Saturn today, your fear of intimacy is holding you back. You love the happy crush stage—the running, the chasing, and the thrill of new romance, but when it gets real, it terrifies you. How will you ever find true love when you always run away from the possibility of it? Learn to take a risk, Leo. Not all risks are doomed to fail—the essence of taking one is to hold on to the hope that it will succeed.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, today you find yourself conflicted between your emotional needs and your desire for emotional control when the Moon squares Saturn. You might feel particularly vulnerable and needy today while feeling like you need to maintain a certain level of distance or control in your relationship. At some point, however, you need to let go, Virgo. We’re only in control of so much in the world—if you keep trying to get in control of everything, including your relationships, you’ll never find real happiness. Allow yourself to love, to be needy, to be vulnerable, and watch all your relationships grow in the end.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, today you feel like wearing your heart out on your sleeve, but when the Moon squares Saturn, you suddenly hesitate. You’ve always had to adjust to make others comfortable, which means you’ve never done this before, and it terrifies you. Would other people think you’re too loud? Too outspoken? Reckless? Think about this instead, Libra: would you rather face the disappointment of strangers, or disappointment in yourself? You have to learn that as long as you’re doing what’s right, the rest of the world is just background noise—tune them out when you need to.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, you’ve had to shed blood, sweat, and tears to get where you are now, to have what you have, and when the silver light of the Moon blinds skeptical Saturn, you might not be willing to let anyone in in fear of ruining the life you’ve established for yourself. Even if you’re already in a relationship, you might still find yourself struggling with intimacy. The fear is valid, Scorpio, but when you find the right people, make sure your fear will not hold you back from finally having something real.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, your emotions are on full blast today, but when the Moon squares Saturn, you struggle to find people to trust your emotions with. Your family situation in the past might have made you want to hide your emotions as a protective mechanism, making you wary of everyone who comes your way. However, not everyone is out to get you, dear Sag. The only way you’ll find someone who will love you right, who is capable of loving you the way you need to be loved, is if you allow yourself to be vulnerable.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, when the Moon brawls against Saturn, your repressed feelings are resurfacing today, and you really don’t like it. You don’t even have the words to explain it. Big, complicated feelings scare you, which is why you’ve had a hard time in the love department, but you don’t really know who to seek help from. It is important that you allow yourself to feel your emotions fully and without self-judgment, Cap. The first step towards healing is acknowledging the existence of what you need to heal from.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, you’ve finally found your people. Perhaps you’ve even found the right person. However, you might find that your wallet might not be able to sustain these newfound relationships. Every time you go out, you have to spend on unreasonably expensive coffee and on food that’s three times the price of a home-cooked meal. But these people really make you feel a sense of belonging you’ve never felt anywhere else, which makes you want to spend every single penny on them. But you have to be practical too, Aqua. Perhaps spending time together at each other’s houses might be a good idea, especially if you want to get more intimate.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, having a good reputation is very important for you, but when the Moon gets into a conflict with Saturn, you might feel that your need for recognition is going a little overboard. As a result, you might struggle being vulnerable in your relationships, because you’re too transfixed in looking good to allow yourself to be human. You have to go back to what is real, Pisces. Remember that you’re still worthy of love, even without praise and recognition.
