Three, two, one, liberate yourself! Today’s Sagittarius new moon in your independent ninth house urges you to break those chains that bind. From bidding adieu to your 9 to 5 to become your own boss to double-bolting the door on a bad romance, it’s time to fly your freedom flag, Aries. It’s also an auspicious day for entrepreneurial ventures, so take a big bold step today toward advancing your aims. Distracted by visions of sunbathing on pink-sand Bermuda beaches or exploring ancient Roman ruins? Start planning for your next epic vacay, STAT.
You may be the zodiac’s indie darling, Aries, but you don’t exist in a bubble. Today’s planets press pause on a “me, myself, and I venture” so you can swoop in superhero style and save a loved one’s day. While you very well may receive bonus karma points for this act of kindness, you’re also returning the favor. This certain someone has quietly yet staunchly supported you from the sidelines, never asking to be repaid. Read between the lines, and make sure you have their back.
Shooting daggers or simply straight from the hip? With communicator Mercury grooving through your truth-telling ninth house until December 24, being honest could earn you bonus points or get you into hot water. You don’t need to censor yourself, Aries, but pause before you unleash an unfiltered opinion. You may be right on the money, but if your delivery comes with barbs you could burn bridges. Also, expect new and old friends outside your stomping grounds to appear. Roll out the welcome mat for a faraway friend, or go couch-surfing this weekend well beyond city limits.
Rule with an iron fist or a velvet glove? With today’s harmonious angle between the moon and Venus in your career zone, the latter is the preferred approach. Just because the ultimate decision may be yours, welcoming other people’s opinions into the mix will make your team that much stronger. They’ll be more enthusiastic about getting the job done when you show sincere admiration and respect for their strengths and contributions.
Stick to routine and your regular hangs? Y-a-a-a-wn. Today’s planets give you a penchant for the unpredictable and unconventional. Dip your toe into different ponds, preferably where the creative types like to congregate. Think: a controversial art exhibit, a lecture, foreign films, experimental theater. Strike up a conversation with a fellow culture vulture, and it could be the first step toward a highly successful collaboration. You’ll mesh well with peeps from various backgrounds, too. Mix and mingle at a high-end hotel lounge—one cocktail could morph into a weekend-long adventure.
Your independent streak runs through to your core, Aries, but the urge to merge will be potent this Saturday. Your celestial ruler Mars decamps to your committed relationship house until July 25, 2014, propelling your power couple fantasies forward. Be it for business or pleasure, this extra-long eight-month tour puts your indie spirit on the back burner. If you’re in a relationship, you’ll be inspired to inject more adventure into your bond. From trying out extreme sports to signing up for couple’s massage classes to traveling to exotic locations, exciting new endeavors also kick your libido into action. Meow! Sunday’s planets help open your mind to fresh outlooks. Rams have a reputation for being a little hardheaded when it comes to their opinions but today, you could be swayed. Attend a lecture, read a raved-about book, initiate a chat with someone who holds a radically different perspective. Allowing yourself to be silent is also key. Download a guided meditation, and quiet that internal monologue. Or, throw yourself into a creative project. When your mind is at rest, it creates space for new and inspired thoughts to manifest.
