The Gemini moon loves a trend. One that's currently popular in the realm of self-help is the idea of microhabits. It may seem that making a goal to floss one tooth or do one situp won't make a difference in a person's life, but the accomplishment of even the smallest goal reinforces the identity of a person who accomplishes goals.

Hunger is a strange thing. One would think that the longer one goes without food, the hungrier one would get, but this is not the case. The body has an efficient way of managing appetite, and a million other things, too. In these early stages of the Pisces solar journey, feelings will be fleeting. Let the wisdom of the body and heart process ...Read more
Everyone has behaviors they wish they could change. While less than ideal, these ways of dealing with the world thrive in isolation. You never know what kind of good you can do by reaching out to people who might be feeling alone. Bonus: The more social and open you are under this Gemini moon, the better you'll conform to your own standards.
Those with a low emotional IQ regularly miss the emotions of others. This will not be a problem today though, because Venus and Neptune align in Pisces, the most sensitive part of the sky. As for those who tend to feel others too much, this may seem counterintuitive, but part of building your emotional intelligence is learning what to ignore. ...Read more
Be wary of those who are always pushing action, progress and "go time!" Do they have something to gain from the bustle? What about when doing nothing is actually the smarter move? It so often is. "Nothing" is a move that requires no actual movement, yet it does take a lot of energy to be patient (less so under the Taurus moon, though).

This is how it is with the clothes in the closet you don't wear: There's just something uncomfortable about them. Maybe you can't put your finger on it, but if they were more "you," you'd be wearing them now. The fresh Aries moon at the start of this Pisces solar cycle is a fine day to rid yourself of what's not "you" and never going to be.
Being an idealist is easy. You just hang your hat on the best possible outcome without regard to how practical it is or how likely it is to occur. Being a cynic is easy, too; use the same method in reverse. Being realistic and human -- that's the hard part, though the fates are rooting for you in these early stages of the Pisces sun.

On this, the last day of the Aquarius solar sojourn, Mars angers Neptune and the sun sidles up to Mercury, who flees hours later into the sign of the fish. What does it mean? That dreams change once you get a whiff of what's really actionable. That you can walk the walk and talk the talk, but ultimately the only person you need to convince is ...Read more

Happy Lunar New Year. Bring on the days of the Earth Dog. Dog years are times to pull together the way a pack animal would: Find your order in the group, and strive for the good of all.

The Mardi Gras carnival celebration involves vibrant color and light, appointed royalty, creative parade floats and unusual giveaways. The point is to be richly sated before the season of Lent asks us to give up indulgences -- though this square of Mercury and Jupiter warns plainly against overindulgence this Fat Tuesday.

The three earth phases of the moon are Taurus, which is focused on doing things the economical way, Virgo, which is focused on doing things the right way, and Capricorn, which is focused on doing things in the way that gets them done. Bonus points for making quick work of it. Get in there and finish, and then dust off your hands and don't look...Read more
The Capricorn moon rules the countdown to several events of the week -- Mardi Gras, Valentine's Day and the Lunar New Year. Taking care of the practical considerations is the order of the day. What you think of and plan for now will set the stage for successful celebrations and lucky beginnings.

Everyone wants rewards commensurate with their contributions. The trouble is that our contributions are valued according to needs and appetites of others that we have little control over. Luckily, with the Venus change, our sensitivities to what others want get more intuitive. Push your feelings into the situation before asking questions.
Our expressions make art out of our faces. Some call it a mask, but if that's so, it's an evolving kind of mask, being formed by every feeling that flickers across it. It's pretty easy to be an accurate face reader today: Anyone paying attention can see the joys and pains in a face. Use it to make a friend on this last day of Venus in Aquarius...Read more
You can only be disarming to those who are armed. And today most people will be, as the moon moves into the sign of the archer. They will be armed not with bows and arrows but with the usual defenses, poses and postures they project to be seen in a preferred way. Disarm them through total acceptance of who they really are underneath all that. ...Read more
Lunar squares overhead. We all hit those moments when nothing seems to be going right, not the computer, not the project, not the relationship... it's all rolling along on square wheels. It takes leverage and smarts to get it moving, but at least it's not hurling out of control. Since being faster isn't an option, take the opportunity to be ...Read more
How it is on paper is not how it is, not ever, but particularly not under this paper shredder of a moon. No one is a list of achievements. Everyone is a mix of wins and losses. Each thing we do offers us something to learn about ourselves, and the lesson will come regardless of the outcome.

Today's lunar shifts (including a void-of-course moon) are a walk through the fun house, mirrors included. Whatever you send through this carnival feature -- feelings, thoughts, your self-image, random ideas -- you can expect distortions. The fun house is only fun when you know it's not real. Remind yourself of this frequently throughout the ...Read more
