Neptune Draws Out Lunar Wisdom

This lunar square to Neptune brings up a good point: A feeling can run through you, but it is not you. Identifying yourself as the feeling is as unempowering and absurd as identifying yourself as your lunch. "I am sad" is like saying "I am a turkey sandwich." "There is sadness" or "I am processing sadness" would be more accurate.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll discover that a belief you held was wrong or incomplete -- oh, sweet liberation! This levels the mental ground where you'll be building something sturdier and more beautiful to dwell inside.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're divine, quite literally from heaven, assembled from the glitter of a distant exploded star. When you grant someone more warmth than they deserve today, it's a nod to your heavenly origins.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You keep your heart open and continue to take risks in love. Why? You believe there's something wondrous at stake -- and that love, whatever form it takes, is its own reward.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Do you get the feeling that self-fulfilling prophecies are not the exception but the rule? It's true today, for sure, so dwell on what you want, not on what you fear.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). For you to be happy, no one else needs to change besides you. Your happiness will come with an internal adjustment, nothing too big, no giant leap, just a step into the sunshine.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The interaction of opposing forces in your mind creates friction, hot moods and frustrating mental traffic jams. Alignment changes everything. Thoughts flowing in the same direction create momentous forward movement.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The cause of stress is thinking, "This should be something other than what it is." Stress relief is a matter of adjustment. Either you can control the circumstances better, or you can manage your expectations of it.
