General Horoscope for September 30, 2018
We can’t seem to make a simple decision while rational Mercury creates an irritating aspect to nebulous Neptune. We can do the necessary research and analysis, but the closer we get to a final answer, the less convincing it is. The fast-thinking Gemini Moon squares Neptune to add another layer of uncertainty. Nevertheless, the truth ultimately reigns supreme once the reflective Moon forms a working relationship with intelligent Mercury.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
Fantasy seeps into your relationship world today. While a dreamy detour is usually pleasing, this time it is slightly off-putting to your romantic counterpart. They expect realness in communication, but you appear unable to exclude your imagination from the exchange. As you search for the right words now, you may continue to lose your footing. Fortunately, you will pull yourself out of the quicksand soon enough if you don’t give up. Adapt to the current climate with a creative twist.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
A friend interferes with your everyday activities. You are a creature of habit, so disruptions like this can be disorienting today, to say the least. The individual in question likely doesn’t mean any malice, but they are too wrapped up in their own world to understand the consequences. If you communicate your values too soon, the message may get warped. Make sure the person you are trying to reach is actually on the other end of the line before you set things straight.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
Charm radiates from your inner core today. However, if you are being a bit too irreverent, your mischief-making could tarnish your image. People enjoy a good laugh, except when you take jokes a step too far. Listen as much as you project, or you could be in for a less-than-optimal reception now. A dollop of patience goes a long way into making sure your audience is keeping up with you. Once you know they’re back on board, you can return to being the star of the show.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
You dream of leaving it all behind and exploring abroad. You also love your home and do not want to leave. The friction between the imaginal far-away and the very real here-and-now leaves you wistful today. You get lost in reverie, generating possibility after possibility. Unfortunately, none of them really add up now. At some point, you exhaust the mental options and return to your private life, having all but gone on a real trip. Indulge in the pretend wanderlust; ironically, it keeps you grounded.
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
Someone close to you might be papering over the truth. You sense hints of impropriety and want to get to the bottom of it today. However, others may not play along with you at first. A situation with porous boundaries such as these becomes sticky for everyone involved. Take some time to figure out how you want to address this dilemma. At the very least, you demand respect from the people in your life. Revisiting terms of engagement helps you establish a fresh basis for relating. Integrity is non-negotiable.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Unconditional love is blinding. On the one hand, the pure transmission from source fills you with brilliant light. On the other, it’s that very light making it difficult to see anything else. A craving for connection can turn into an addiction that drains you of professional and financial motivation. Close your eyes briefly and try to recalibrate your vision. As you regain your sight and your energy, you will see more clearly what is going on in your relationship world.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Nothing in your routine today is routine. Ambiguities, miscommunications, and flights of fancy — everything gums up the works. All you are trying to do is be yourself, and you seem to get nowhere now. Even your thoughts struggle to cope with the state of things in your mundane world. Sometimes you have to sit back and let the resistance pass you by. Before you know it, things will start to flow properly again. At least, the brief respite offers you the chance to reflect on a few ideas worth re-purposing for the future.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
A dalliance veers too close for comfort now. You want to keep your involvement casual, yet something more intense is being demanded of you. This need not be a relationship to a person; it could also be a hobby encroaching on your carefully guarded private space. Set your boundaries more clearly. However, you may also need to spend time mending your fences on your own. Imagine how you might do things differently in the future and start building a new world today.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
A nebulous atmosphere in your private life causes dissonance with your social group. You derive beautiful things from both spheres. A close friend reflects this vibe of confusion to you today, prompting you to untangle the interpersonal mess. After you identify the awkward situation, you can start to gain clarity on everyone’s role in your life. Be grateful for the people who reveal yourself to you and assist you when things get strange.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
You look like a tourist today as you travel through your town where everything appears new. You could spend all day doing normal things and still not feel like you belong in a place that you should know very well. In fact, de-familiarizing familiar places to see what your imagination will make of them is a technique that can help you create a structure for navigating your space with fresh eyes. Zen master Suzuki wrote, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind there are few.”
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Escapist fantasies can take on new life now. You may flee into financial fictions, dreaming you could fulfill your every desire if only money grew on trees. Then there’s the pleasure fantasy: playing all day and getting no work done. Or the travel fantasy — where any country will do, the farther away the better. Avoid the inevitable frustration of matching up reality with the illusory. Explore these imaginative ideas to find new avenues of self-expression. Channel your creativity into something that lasts.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
You cannot see the tip of your own nose, which may be growing long like Pinocchio’s. Although you don’t even see it, your partner does — and this mirror helps keep you in check when your tales spin out of control. Relationships are funny like that. Everyone wants to emphasize the romantic side, yet there is this other side that magnifies all faults in reflection. This honest exchange is exactly how partners can help each other grow. Never take true intimacy for granted.
