Rene Descartes said, “Cogito ergo sum,” or “I think, therefore I am.” If only that were always the case. Alas, in the end, most of us will be judged not for what we thought but for what we did. The Aquarius moon, both mentally bright and philanthropically good, invites us to examine intellect versus character and how they play out in daily life.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Be patient enough to do what it takes to solve a problem once and for all. The first answer you come up with may not be the best. Go deeper. Ask, “What else? How else?”
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People want to share with you. Show-and-tell time will start out interesting. Brevity is the way to keep it that way. Ward against over-sharing and stick to the safe topics.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Life won’t provide you with incentives, but you’re so creative that you can come up with some pretty awesome ones when you’re at a loss. Keep the momentum up today: Know what you’re looking forward to and envision the prize.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Most children don’t think so, but life really is better with fewer sweets, less screen time and more fresh air. You’ll tap into your grown-up instincts and feel wonderful for the effort.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Long-term thinking isn’t always so fun, and thinking only of the moment is foolish. There’s a sweet spot in the middle of short- and long-term thinking that will be wonderfully accommodating to your plans.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your incredible gift of adaptability will kick in today. You’ll stretch, flex and grow yourself in order to meet the new situation. Your lack of ego is what makes this possible.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Gather information. Get clarity on all communication. You are mighty intuitive now, but you’ll learn more by asking than by assuming you already have the answers.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you’re constantly standing up for yourself around a certain person, it’s a red flag. Don’t ignore the signal that a person doesn’t accept and support you as you are.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Start making plans for the upcoming event. It’s a lucky time to free-associate about how you want this to go. Gather inspiration and ideas. Talk to the ones who have done it before.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll listen to different philosophies, some of which will be easier to relate to than others. Your open mind will hold some of this information for later when it better applies.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your active mind may also become restless tonight. Just remember that sleep is an important part of any mammal’s life. Instead of lying awake with worry, outline a plan.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Getting back to basics is a very personal process, since what is “basic” to you is not even in the realm for someone else. Honor your own essentials regardless of whether the others understand what you need.
