The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

You're entering a time when you are being offered a tool that can be used in a powerful way. That tool could be a physical thing, or it might be an idea, or perhaps it's an opportunity to influence others. The question is: how will you use it? Your first impulse might be to think of what you would like to change in the world around you. Maybe you want more security, which means someone who's making you feel a bit vulnerable needs to change their attitude? Or perhaps you wish the rest of the world would just "smarten up" and see things the way you do?

However, this tool, this gift, has the potential to take you much farther than simply making your own life easier or changing the outside world to match the way you see things. Using this gift for those purposes would be like taking a diamond and using it to crack nuts! The irony is that this gift can influence the world around you. However, like the Sorcerer's Apprentice, the best way to use a powerful tool is with wisdom, knowledge and respect for its potential—both "good" and "bad."

You've come through a time of several weeks where you might have felt like you were going nowhere fast, and forced to move at a crawl when you preferred to run. Or you might have felt pressured to move fast, but resisted this with caution and hesitation. Either way, the tension between the two energies has allowed you to build up strength, preparation and a more balanced judgment of what you need to do. This is a mighty fuel that can be used with that powerful tool/gift you have to wield right now. Therefore, think twice before you speak, examine both sides carefully before you decide, and question your motives before you express yourself or try to persuade others of your way of thinking. There's a quote going around lately, that is incorrectly attributed to the Buddha. Nevertheless, it offers some wisdom that could be a helpful a guiding light under these transits: before you speak ask yourself, "Is It True? Is It Necessary? Is It Kind?"

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

There is a mirror being held up to you right now. It is reflecting back to you the realities that are so subtle, so difficult or so inspiring that you might have missed them. Your intuition is trying to show you something that may not be obvious or even pleasant, but is in your best interests and can give you a chance to grow and expand. This might come in the form of creative vision or a sense of connection to something greater than yourself, or even a burst of imagination.

Those you love or care about might challenge you to see more clearly how you are giving away your power, or how you might be expecting them to give theirs away to you. You might respond by feeling overwhelmed and wanting to just give up, or perhaps you react by overanalyzing and rationalizing (which is very likely a defence against having to really look at something about yourself you'd rather not see). Flashes of insight could seem to threaten your tranquility, and yet there may be something there that you need to notice. Random and erratic events and behaviour from others may push you back into a worried frame of mind, but it's better to take a calm, centered, meditative view of what's happening so that you are in a better position to respond out of choice, not desperation.

The lesson here is surrender and acceptance – not in the sense that you give up, give away your power and abdicate your choices. Instead, it's about not hurling yourself against the brick wall of whatever is stubbornly refusing to comply with your demand that it change. Read that again; it's important. Acceptance says, "I'm perfect, lovable and a blessed child of the Universe just as I am right now in this moment. And I am also a work in progress. I'm becoming a better person and evolving to become more of who I am every day." And it's also about extending the same recognition to others. All of this notwithstanding, if your life or safety are in danger, you need to do whatever is necessary to get out of that situation. Acceptance doesn't mean passivity or apathy or abdicating responsibility for your own choices. It does mean allowing the current of Life to carry you, even as you are paddling toward a destination.
