Today, there is some tension in communication and connection for the zodiac signs!

The Moon is in the diplomatic, social sign of Libra, giving us a desire for balance and connection with our emotions. However, throughout the day, the Moon opposes Mercury, the planet of communication, and Venus, the planet of relationships, love, and beauty. These oppositions can make it challenging to communicate what we are feeling or thinking or cause issues expressing what we need in our relationships. Of course, the best thing to do is slow down (especially with Mercury still in retrograde) and communicate as clearly as possible, but it may be more challenging, so give yourself some grace today if things feel frustrating.

Check your signs below (Sun and Rising!) to see what today has in store for you!


Things in your relationships may not be what they seem, Aries. You’re trying to understand where others are coming from—maybe disagreements are involved, or perhaps someone needs to share something important with you. However, you’re having trouble seeing past your own perspective. You have a very specific idea of what should take place or your opinion on the matter, and you could become defensive when someone is trying to communicate with you. Try to set aside your bias and hear what the person is saying—not what you think they should be saying. 


You’re having some trouble figuring out what you need today, Taurus. You could be carrying a lot on your plate, especially to help others who have asked you to pitch in. However, you could be juggling too much and struggling to ensure you’re taken care of without letting down anyone else, and others may not be as understanding as you would hope. If you need help dealing with the day, you have to ask for it—and if you need to move things around or cancel something because you can’t make it work, don’t feel guilty for knowing your limits. It may take some conversations to repair any rifts formed, but if you communicate clearly, people who care about you will understand. 


You are likely feeling emotionally creative and longing to seize the day, Gemini, but there could be some tension with your friend groups. Perhaps inspiration has struck you, and you want to chase it while you can, or you’re really feeling yourself and want to go out, but your friends may not be up for it. Or, if you already made prior commitments, people may not love that you want to change the plan. If possible, try to strike a compromise that lets you have some fun while not bailing on your promises. 


You’re trying to keep to yourself today, but it’s not as easy as you would like, Cancer. Whether you need a recharge or want some time at home, it feels like others are pulling for your attention—especially at work. There could be big projects or important meetings that you’re expected to work on. However, if you’ve already scheduled time off work or are meeting your requirements, don’t overwork yourself to make everyone else happy. The best thing to do is communicate with others about what still needs to get done—you can likely strike a compromise if you can keep a level head. 


You may not have all your facts straight today, Leo. You might hear rumors or jump to conclusions about people you know, but your source may not be the most reliable. If you can be open to other points of view or talk things out, you may find your judgment unwarranted, so don’t make rash decisions until you have all the information.


You may need to settle some debt today, Virgo, or at least get some finances in order. You could owe some money you haven’t paid back yet, which may cause more tension than usual. You could also be dealing with withholding some information you haven’t been ready to share, and it’s catching up to you now. Take today to set up a payment plan or have some much-needed conversations to smooth things. If you try to avoid the issue, it will only grow. 


You could be feeling misunderstood by your loved ones today, Libra. With the Moon in your sign, you could experience some overwhelming feelings on a personal level. However, communicating or connecting with those you care for most feels more difficult than usual. You may feel even more sensitive or frustrated as you try to express what you want or need, but it feels like you’re at an impasse. Take some time for yourself and try to write out or sort through your emotions to make sense of them. Don’t take this miscommunication to heart or make assumptions about how much your loved ones care based on interactions that happen today—tomorrow is a new day.


You need to schedule some time for yourself when you can today, Scorpio. Emotionally, you’re struggling to make sense of what you’re feeling and need, but this may not be clear to others expecting you to take care of your day-to-day as usual. Trying to communicate this may not be simple, as you can’t fully explain what’s going on if you can’t process it. Take some alone time to meditate or reflect on your emotions and get to the source to get the support you want. 


You’re feeling a stronger urge to belong today, Sagittarius, but it may put you at odds with some of your thoughts and feelings. You’re never one to want to miss out on something big, especially if it seems people in your social circles are involved. However, it may lead you not to feel as open about your thoughts and desires as you usually would be—and that limitation isn’t something you’re comfortable with. Truthfully, if you have to compromise yourself, it’s not something you want to be part of—be mindful of where and who you want to spend your time with.


You have things you want to accomplish today, Capricorn, but you have more on your plate than you realize. You could find that you’re longing to finish a project at work or are working towards recognition in your career by putting in the extra work. However, you also have responsibilities at home to maintain, and expectations about your priorities could cause disagreements if you can’t keep a level head. It may be hard to explain what matters to you most at the moment, but ignoring the problem and not talking things out will only make it worse.


You want to act before you think things through, but it’s not in your best interest, Aquarius. You may feel others around you are expecting a lot, or you could have a lot of tasks/errands on your plate that you’re struggling to manage. Meanwhile, you’re longing for a chance to escape and get away from it all. You don’t want to let anyone down, and trying to talk about needing a break may lead to tension between you and those relying on you. You may feel tempted to take off and not tell anyone where you’re going, but rather than act impulsively, communicate that you need a break, and set aside time to make that happen. 


You could use a little emotional support today, Pisces, but it may not come easily. You’re dealing with some heavy emotions that may be difficult to understand or unpack, but they aren’t going anywhere. You could use the care and support of those you love, but you won’t get it if you don’t ask for it. Trusting that people will show up for you in the best ways they know how isn’t always simple, but it’s the only way to build security and stability in your relationships.
