Today’s stabilizing quarter moon in your sign issues a reminder to put your needs at the top of the heap. As a hard-working Bull, you never ignore the demands of your career, nor is it easy for you to put yourself first and let others wait. But if you really think about it, this people-pleasing can be a way to curry favor and feel better about yourself. There are other—healthier!—ways to accomplish that, Taurus. Start by making self-care your top priority. See the full week >
Even if you can’t forget, you CAN forgive. And today, with a harmonizing quarter moon in Taurus illuminating your healing zone, you’re in a perfect position to extend the olive branch. You may have just cause to be mad as hell at someone in your circle, but who’s suffering more? We think YOU are, Gemini. We all make mistakes, but it’s a mark of character to absolve and move on. Of course, if there’s a “next time,” you might want to think twice about whether this person is worth staying friends with. See the full week >
Two heads—and pairs of arms and legs—are SO much better than one, Cancer! If you’ve been trying to do it all (again), today’s harmonizing quarter moon in Taurus and your collaborative eleventh house can remind you that teamwork makes the dream work. Not sure where to turn? Meditate on ways you can pool money or resources with a friend or coworker. It might not be perfection out of the gate, but it’ll point you in the right direction. See the full week >
Pause for a cause! If you’ve been racing toward a finish line but suddenly realize you’re heading in a direction that doesn’t feel comfortable, stop! Today’s stabilizing quarter moon in Taurus and your career house can help you recalibrate your trajectory. Things change, Leo, and it’s important to make necessary adjustments to your success strategy as life shifts. Stop to examine what your heart desires NOW (as opposed to the last time you updated your resume). It’s okay to shift your course. In fact, it’s a prerequisite to happiness! See the full week >
Under today’s grounded quarter moon in Taurus and your candid ninth house, you won’t be able to repress your honest feelings. Speaking your mind without self-editing represents growth for you, Virgo, but be careful not to take it too far. Not everyone can handle unfiltered feedback, so deliver your comments with compassion. Avoid issuing orders or ultimatums and phrase things from YOUR perspective. If you ask questions instead of hurling accusations, you can build bridges, not burn them. See the full week >
The jade-eyed monster could make an unexpected appearance today as the quarter moon in Taurus fires up your eighth house of intense emotions. Trust, jealousy, competitiveness and even rage could rise to the surface and catch you by surprise. Try to keep your Libran cool, weighing your feelings against all available facts. You may have a legit reason to be distraught, but don’t fall into the “mountains out of molehills” trap. That’s a good way to permanently damage a relationship. See the full week >
A quarter moon in Taurus lights up your relationship house, bringing some much-needed balance to your closest connections. When you feel safe, you can be an (almost) open book, but when you’re afraid you might get hurt, those pages slam shut. But swinging between two poles can be disorienting to someone trying to get close to you, Scorpio. Under today’s stabilizing moon phase, see if you can’t find—and stay on—a middle ground. This kind of constancy is a key step in creating a lasting bond. See the full week >
Tumbled off the wellness wagon? If you try to offset your indulgences with extreme deprivation, you’ll never get on an even keel, Archer. Vibrant health isn’t about being unnaturally thin or limber. It’s about forming diet and exercise habits that you can stick with—and enjoy! Today’s stabilizing quarter moon in Taurus and your healthful sixth house can point the way to a well-modulated self-care plan. Aim to eat “right” 80 percent of the time, and instead of grueling workouts, move every day and work in short bursts of high-intensity intervals. See the full week >
Toot your horn, Capricorn! Today’s quarter moon in Taurus revs up your fifth house of drama and fame, making this a perfect day for a little shameless self-promotion.

Someone’s going to get the kudos, and it might as well be you. As long as you keep your integrity, all is fair in love and war. See the full week >
