Aries: Believing comes before seeing, but your mind is telling you otherwise. Don't focus on the problem - imagine perfection.

Taurus: The advice or support that you seek from a friend or organization is not what you expect. You can take it - or not.

Gemini: Both family & mate want attention when you feel you should be working. Which matters most in the long run?

Cancer: A plan that's perfect in theory is all wrong in practice, or Mercury retrograde causes comedy of error in communication.

Leo: If you think you've put your trust or money in the wrong person or business, watch a while. Turbulence may be temporary.

Virgo: Family members or mate may not see the importance or validity of your advice. Be gracious if time proves you right.

Libra: Why won't people listen & cooperate? It takes patience on your part to suffer fools or serve without sharp wit or sarcasm.

Scorpio: You may regret spending money on a passing pleasure or you invest so much in your own creative work that you lose profits.

Sagittarius: You may feel that expenses eat up money as fast as you make it, but isn't it good that you have it when you need it?

Capricorn: Soul searching into what you believe could lead to external searching. Not all you find may be true. Right use of doubt.

Aquarius: This may not be the best time to work at sales, marketing or business. Working on your mind or spirit is best.

Pisces: You want to play creatively in your own way, but a partner or folks at work aren't going along with your way. Aim for peace.

The moon in the friendly, optimistic fire sign of Sagittarius clashes with the sun in dreamy, sensitive Pisces this afternoon, and Mars in fussy Virgo opposes Chiron conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Elementally, water puts out fire. I see the image of a perfectly built campfire . A scout is striking one match after another in an attempt to light the fire, but it is raining, and the rain extinguishes each match the scout manages to light just as the tongue of flame touches the wet wood of the campfire. This may be viewed as mildly humorous or pitifully sad, depending on whether we have "been there - done that" ourselves and can identify with the scout. If we are part of the scout's total experience and are depending on that scout to light that fire for our own warmth or food, the humor is replaced by a feeling of desperation. Perception IS everything today, and how you perceive something can depend on multiple factors, due to the mutable nature of the signs involved in these challenging aspects. At the same time that the moon and Mars are stressed by the square and the opposition aspects, Neptune conjunct Chiron forms a supportive sextile to powerful Pluto in Capricorn, giving you an extra dose of faith and fortitude. Use gentle humor and simple gratitude. The Bible, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, says, "In everything, give thanks..." and the Dalai Lama says, “My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” These two quotes can help you be wise and kind in spite of any challenges today. And the rain may clear just as you strike that last match.
