daily horoscopes: march 18, 2019
Today’s Moon in Virgo expects a lot from you.
A Virgo Moon gives us all a sense of urgency around what we think we “should” be doing.
Read the horoscopes for your rising, Sun, and Moon signs to get clear on what’s actually important, right now.
Aim to understand everything you do as part of a larger relationship and dynamic of give and take, today. Recognize that every time you invest energy in something, you receive it in return. Use this idea to vet the kinds of people and things you give yourself to, considering the quality of what you will receive and letting that inform the way you relate to that thing. Act on this as a practice of self-preservation and self-love instead of one of judgement or fear and it could change everything.
(March 21-April 19)
There is a diligence and attention to detail required of you, today, that may feel very draining. This means that it is extra important for you double down on your self-care, and practice saying “no” to whatever isn’t worth giving this kind of mental and emotional energy to. Before doing anything, clarify your intentions and use them as an anchor when things get tedious. Take plenty of time to rest and recoup and be as honest as you can about what you do and do not have the capacity for.
(April 20-May 20)
With all of the internal transformation you are undergoing, make an effort to make your relationships a space for levity and regeneration. Think about what you need from someone for it to feel like a nutritive connection, as well as how you will uphold your part of that dynamic. When things are tough in your life, you tend to let the weight of it permeate everything and block yourself from any respite. Break this cycle by truly making a point to bring light and joy to the people in your life and have that energy reflect back to you.
(May 21-June 21)
Beware of writing off criticism or difference in opinion off as attack, today. Everytime you are challenged about your ideas, decisions, etc, it is your chance to stand more deeply in who you are and gain insight into if your intentions are matching your impact. Take time and space to reflect before being to reactive. Encourage people to speak honestly and practice being discerning about which of their opinions are actually yours to digest and consider and which have nothing to do with you. Today is an important exercise in knowing who you are and letting that inform your actions, rather than reacting from insecurity, fear, lack or misunderstanding.
(June 22-July 22)
Tools to help you remain organized and on track with whatever your goals are for the day will be crucial to your success, right now. “Going with the flow” may result in you getting swept up in emotions that encourage you to dwell, obsess, or worry about details and outcomes that don’t actually matter when it comes to the bigger picture. Use your favorite tools to help you stay physically, mentally, and emotionally grounded in the work you want to commit to, today, so that you can make progress you can be proud of.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Your mind may often wander to what you currently want and wish you had, today. Everytime this happens, re-focus on what you are grateful to already have in your life, and reminisce on the times you wished for what you have now. This should provide some grounding perspective and remind you that everything worth having comes at the right time, and almost never when you expect it or are desperate for it. When you use gratitude as your anchor, you will always have enough and be a magnet for more.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It’s your day to practice listening to your intuition. This will require you to let yourself sit in moments of quiet and stillness and fully tune in. If something feels off in your body, even if everything seems right on paper, listen to that feeling. Same goes for things that feel right. The key to this practice is allowance. Allow yourself to be still enough to listen, allow yourself to trust the messages that come through, and give yourself permission to follow them, regardless of how it might look to anyone else.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
The more you focus on whatever is out of your control, today, the more you will feel out of control and distracted from all of the things you can do. When you notice yourself focusing on the past, future, or worst-case-scenarios, identify what brought you there. What kinds of environments, people, platforms, etc, make you feel anxious and inadequate? How can you create distance between yourself and these things? What actions can you take to make yourself feel grounded and confident with where you are? Always coming back to these places, today, and abandon all that takes you away from them.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Today is all about delegation. How can you practice asking people for what you need and trusting that they are capable of fulfilling the request? How do you differentiate between what your wants and needs are, and how does this affect your communication about each of them? Involving other people in your process does not have to be a long-term commitment or solution, but more of a journey and exercise for yourself.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
It’s a good day to begin completing the administrative tasks necessary to get you to the next level. Who are the people that have access to the spaces and resources that you need? How are you going to contact them and what are you going to say that makes the exchange worth while for both parties? The more you can break down each of your tasks and become clear on your intention behind them, the more effective your communication and skills of persuasion will be, today.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It will be difficult to not compartmentalize things and prejudge people and situations, today. Instead of allowing this to spoil your potential opportunities, implement a system that encourages you to get excited and have an expansive relationship to what presents itself to you. With every task and personal interaction, think about at least five ways that it could go better than expected. Really live in those fantasies and approach each situation as if your favorite version is in the process of coming true.
Your ability to be deeply contemplative and calculated is heightened, today. Aim to use this energy towards specific problems that require this kind of attention to detail and long-term thinking. Avoid using this skill to overthink your relationships, the purpose of your work, or your worth in any way, shape, or form. If you can, use today to be by yourself and work through things you need to address. This energy could set you up for a very focused and productive week, but it is up to you to keep the energy contained and rightfully directed in order to reap these rewards.
