General Daily Predictions:
Mercury turns direct today after a retrograde period that began on July 26th. Over the coming weeks, problems with communications and decision-making we may have encountered while Mercury was retrograde should start to improve. Delayed initiatives may unblock. While Mercury’s direct motion can bring increasing clarity over the coming days and weeks, the station itself can initially magnify problem areas or confusion.
Easing us through this transition is a Jupiter-Neptune trine. Under this influence, we have better access to our imagination and intuition, and we have more faith in our plans. This longer-term aspect first formed in December 2017, reconnected in May, and is now forming exactly for the final time while Jupiter transits Scorpio. Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses are strong now. Making connections with others from a different background and widening our minds through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Practical considerations may take a back seat now, although Saturn in Capricorn helps out in this respect. Generosity, faith, and compassion increase. We more readily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the greater good.
The Moon spends the day in Sagittarius, harmonizing with Mercury and Venus and inspiring our cooperation and enthusiasm for sharing ideas.
Daily Predictions for Aries:
If anyone is unsurprised by the unexpected behavior of others, it’s you. You’ve come to realize that anyone can literally be capable of anything. So when a family member suddenly announces that they’re about to do something that no one who knows them would have ever expected, you may be taken a bit off guard, but in private, you’ll encourage them to go for it — and they’ll love you even more for the support.
Daily Predictions for Taurus:
You may need to raid your bank account now to take care of a pressing financial favor for a friend. This doesn’t mean you don’t have your own matters to tend to, of course — only that, once again, you’re going to put their problems in front of your own. If they deserve it and this is a passing thing, fine. If you’re going to end up blaming yourself for enabling them, think about making this the last time.
Daily Predictions for Gemini:
There’s something out there that you really want — something you’ve been wishing to have for a long time. You’ve been saving your pennies, working overtime, depriving yourself of even the most basic of daily pleasures and flipping through catalogues to find the right deal. Well, don’t look now, but today could actually be the day you find it. Make sure you have the cash or ATM card on you and do some in-person comparison shopping.
Daily Predictions for Cancer:
You’re feeling especially chatty and friendly — which means you’ll be more easily tempted than you usually are to let a secret slide. If it’s your own secret and you don’t mind the world knowing about it, go ahead. Sharing a confidence is a great way to bond with someone. If it doesn’t only belong to you, better think twice before you have at it. Why risk a current relationship to entice a new one?
Daily Predictions for Leo:
Some folks believe that there’s a whole legion of guardian angels with us at all times, right there by our side every time a difficult or taxing situation comes up. They invisibly hold our hands, silently offer us words of comfort and make decisions that would be too tough for our mortal souls to handle alone. Don’t be surprised if you feel the presence of one of those lovely creatures today.
Daily Predictions for Virgo:
There are many metaphysical books on the market now that tout the validity of coincidence, or, more accurately, of the fact that there really is no such thing as a coincidence, only a series of symbolic events that we’re occasionally smart enough to notice. When you notice just such a pattern occurring now, don’t question your sanity. You’re absolutely right. Once you notice, you’ll have the answer to that pressing question you’ve been asking yourself.
