The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

If you're feeling like someone lit a rocket under your chair and you're bouncing off the walls trying to steer it, you're right on schedule. The next 2 weeks—indeed, the next couple of months—are filled with high octane energy that will require a strong seat belt and a firm grip on your will power. You can go far on this energy, but it will take some skill to ride this rocket.

At times it may feel a bit too hot to handle. You might feel overwhelmed by overactive reactions (your own or others'). And it's probably easier to fly off the handle about something that frustrates you than to take a calm breath and find a reasonable solution.

If you're leaning the other way, into discouragement or depression, this might actually be your psyche's way of instinctively trying to ground you, by balancing all that intense energy with a slower, more composed frame of mind. This is actually a good thing, since it can keep you from burning yourself out. If you're swinging back and forth between extremes (rage versus depression, idealism versus cynicism, and so on), it may help to take some time out to let the dust settle for a little while. Then decide what's really important to you and keep your focus on your priorities.

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

It's probably wise to assume that the road this month will be a bit bumpier than usual, but not so bad that it hurls you over a cliff edge. There are indeed some intense and powerful energies flying around. It might be tempting to just give in and let your automatic defences and reactions take over, but this could create as many problems as it (seems to) solve. Remember that a little will go a long way, so it's good to express your anger, frustration, certainty and desires a bit sparingly and diplomatically.

It's possible you are confronted by issues that have been lurking in the background, which now (annoyingly or thankfully) emerge into the foreground where they can be dealt with more directly. In some way, you are called upon to let go of some part of this situation that no longer serves your best interests. For example, a friendship that's been problematic for a while might need to be reassessed, where you decide it's time to end the relationship, or perhaps just need to change their status from "close friend" to "acquaintance." In the same way, you might find you need to question how closely aligned you are with groups of people you previously saw eye-to-eye with, but lately you're seeing things a bit differently.

There is reason to be optimistic, however, because whatever is going on is giving you a chance to see things from a more detached, objective perspective. Talking with or listening to others can help you find a fresh way to look at the situation, giving you the ability to find a better balance in how you feel about it. You're cautioned not to get stuck in extremes of opinions that see things as either too strict or too indulgent, but to find a middle road that takes you in between those extremes.
