Today is the cause of our future, though we can't tell how. The cosmic conundrums come to mind courtesy of a conflict between Mars and Uranus. Accuracy in forecasting requires us to remove bias, dash assumptions and think as clearly as possible.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Emotional bumpers can go up like air bags, preventing injury but also closeness. These protective cushions have their drawbacks and need only be employed in extreme situations. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You and yours will agree about the big-picture items though there will be some major differences of opinion on the topic of how to go about bringing that vision to life. Luckily, it's a fine day for finding compromise.<p>Updated: Tue Sep 18, 2018</p> 49a975beab26d411f17d32e6ffc44c0e Maturity Moon for 09/17/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/maturity-moon Mon, 17 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Getting older requires resilience and adaptation. This is as true at age 4 as it is at age 54. If you cannot (or, for some reason, just don't want to) do it the same way as you did it before, congratulations. You're maturing. It's something to embrace and celebrate at every age. This message comes via the maturing influence of the Capricorn moon.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Alone, you're strong, but you can only do so much. Seek other strong people to add to your network. The first step to accelerated success is to acquire support.<p>Updated: Mon Sep 17, 2018</p> 4649569ea7c31384d17702f0c96c94e8 Mars and Uranus Confrontation for 09/16/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/mars-and-uranus-confrontation Sun, 16 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>In traffic and in life, the intersection is the most dangerous piece of road. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Every day brings an opportunity to choose our direction. </span>And every day, we need to be mindful of the crossing. Mars and Uranus are moving into a configuration that will get more heated over the next few days. Stay aware. Ward against hubris.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You need attention as much as the next person, yet you also know the value of serving others. The purpose outside of yourself helps you get clarity on life.<p>Updated: Sun Sep 16, 2018</p> 51079814d4e60e0fd39a7147670a908f Trine of Responsibility for 09/15/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/trine-of-responsibility Sat, 15 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Mercury and Pluto form a trine that bodes well for the responsible people of the world, and those who wish to be. Responsibility can be the difference between a thriving venture and a wish. Those who step up and take more on will have to work harder but they'll also get to enjoy a greater feeling of agency and accomplishment. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Each group has its own culture. You could fit in very well with this new one. How far should extend yourself? Go slow, but be a giver. Not giving costs more than giving.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It doesn't usually work like this, but in certain moments you'll be able to take hold of your mind and essentially tell it who's in charge and how you need it to think. Oh happy day! <p>Updated: Sat Sep 15, 2018</p> c113e78394acce66d12bc36e8c0e66bc Tolerance Moon for 09/14/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/tolerance-moon-ef235 Fri, 14 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>There are those who fear of diversity. The good news is that this condition, which is a sign of insecurity and immaturity, can be outgrown through positive experiences and understanding. The Sagittarius moon encourages us to trust ourselves to react well to the unknown &#8212; a confidence that translates to tolerance of one another's differences. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). While it's unnerving to lose personal items, it's also an opportunity to put better organizational systems in place. <span class="column--highlighted-text">To assign a single resting place for the keys, etc. is to save hours a year searching for things.</span> </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Going on a tangent means you're creative and it also <i> makes </i> you creative. Maybe it will require patience from the more linear-minded audience trying to keep up with you, but don't let that deter you. <p>Updated: Fri Sep 14, 2018</p> 8fc6ae19f1275d20407caa8ed57e2654 Mercury Opposition and Identity for 09/13/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/mercury-opposition-and-identity Thu, 13 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The opposition of Mercury and Neptune recalls the disparity between how we see ourselves and how others see us. To some degree, people are constantly concocting and controlling their own narrative, spinning an idea of who they are. Action is the bottom line. Action shows who we are. Our deeds bring self-image and reputation into alignment. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). What happens in the world will influence you; however, it won't control you unless you let it. Maintaining power over your experience will require creativity and determination to see it your way, not their way. <p>Updated: Thu Sep 13, 2018</p> 61fe977772fe882ecf29798a3cbc6c57 Stinging Scorpio Moon for 09/12/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/stinging-scorpio-moon Wed, 12 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Directness is a privilege of intimacy. It might also be a route to it, though it's certainly a risk. If directness is met with defensiveness, an emotional gap will open between people that will have to be bridged before any close relationship could ensue. Just something to consider before you speak up under the stinging Scorpio moon. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). It might be strange to think of competition as a social skill, but its purpose is key to our social structures. Today's competitive interaction will help you decide how best to spend your time and who best to spend it with. <p>Updated: Wed Sep 12, 2018</p> 57b0a48ddf0d255e47d7b93d972399e9 Pluto Makes a Point for 09/11/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/pluto-makes-a-point Tue, 11 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Memory &#8212; not just your memory but the very concept of memory &#8212; is unreliable. Recollection is an imaginative act that rewrites itself with each activation. Considering this, is it really fair to say anyone remembers things the wrong way? The sun's trine with profound Pluto points out that each version of the story is unique and as worthy as any.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). When loved ones struggle to find the right way to tell their story, your talent kicks in. You can help because you see things in people that they do not see themselves. <p>Updated: Tue Sep 11, 2018</p> 0dd2d86400c04c331cc5f7fc2ddc27d6 Mars-in-Aquarius Challenge for 09/10/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/mars-in-aquarius-challenge Mon, 10 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Perceptions are like windows. Consider the housefly trying to get outside, bashing itself against the window, not realizing that glass is both what inspires and what thwarts its attempt. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Each person can only see it "a" way, not "the" way.</span> To challenge assumptions takes advanced thinking and superior character. Mars in Aquarius offers the challenge.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Framing the truth is a social skill. As it is with all framing, there are decisions to be made about the positioning. Cropping is an option, and it's one you should strongly consider today.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). We are all stuck inside ourselves, though some seem more stuck than others. Empathy isn't just a virtue for better souls; it's also a ticket to living more lives than just the one that we live from behind our own eyeballs.<p>Updated: Mon Sep 10, 2018</p> 365fdcb6ee5be2562c4c902da2be5890 New Moon Trending for 09/09/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/new-moon-trending Sun, 09 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>We all have a story about ourselves we run in our head, ticker tape to keep continuity with a certain identity, purpose, personality and role. A person cannot run this story and live in the moment at the same time. <span class="column--highlighted-text">One must forget oneself to be totally present.</span> For those who succeed in this under the new moon, it will start a personal trend.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's harmony in your relationships now &#8212; a happy but fragile condition worthy of your protection. You intuitively understand that good times are too precious to take for granted.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can be spontaneous when you feel like it, but the opportunities don't always arise. They will today, though, and it will be lucky to say "yes" to unexpected invitations.<p>Updated: Sun Sep 09, 2018</p> 9496f257795cdc362947a3c62951c39c Mars vs. Venus for 09/08/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/mars-vs-venus Sat, 08 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>When Mars and Venus are at odds, it seems that the very yin and yang of life is discordant. It's not only about a clash between male and female energy, it's a disagreement about what it means to grow a thing and what it means to destroy it. Often, the same action serves either purpose. Avoid trouble. Lend others the benefit of the doubt. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). A special friendship is gathering momentum. Not only is it bigger than the sum of its parts but also it's as though the relationship is an entity with a life all its own, independent and distinct of the two of you.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What matters to you personally matters in the larger scheme, too. How could it not? You're an integral part of this web of life. You may not see or feel that all of the time, but never stop believing it. <p>Updated: Sat Sep 08, 2018</p> 962f3769ca1bc74c1916d5e495743156 Mercury and Saturn Favor Diligence for 09/07/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/mercury-and-saturn-favor-diligence Fri, 07 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Recent moves of Mercury and Saturn favor the diligent. It's not always readily apparent who has won. The prize doesn't automatically fall in hand at the end of the job. There's not a trophy at the end of every game. However, eventually, hard work is rewarded, as it will be time and again in the weeks to come. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). What is it called when an emoji shows up one way on one device and another way on a different device? Maybe there's no name for it, but it's an echo of what happens with real emotions today.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Games are no fun if they are too easy. Think of today's challenge as though it were a game, and suddenly the parts that might have once annoyed you now seem like simple problems to solve on your way to winning. <p>Updated: Fri Sep 07, 2018</p> c5c6dbff2ac690222ce1c6cc0f9d5272 Saturn Direct for 09/06/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/saturn-direct-66faa Thu, 06 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>If you recognize the greatness in another person, the potential for that greatness lies within you. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to see it. Believe it; you share qualities with those humans you consider to be the best of the lot. Still, unique work goes into every accomplishment. Saturn's return to direct motion discourages comparison. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've been wronged by people who didn't mean it, didn't realize what they were doing and never intended to hurt you. Still, you get to decide whether or not you're going to let them make it up to you. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life has been happening in your desired timeframe lately, but this is an anomaly and not something you should expect to continue indefinitely. For instance, today's loopy events will change that rhythm in a fun way. <p>Updated: Thu Sep 06, 2018</p> 82b867bcaa0a4332b10deb52d52aecca Mercury Enters Virgo for 09/05/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/mercury-enters-virgo Wed, 05 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The people who aren't criticized are the ones who aren't doing anything. The moment you decide to put something in the world, you also agree (though perhaps unconsciously) to the comment of others, as it's an inextricable part of the deal. As Mercury enters critical Virgo, bear comment proudly. It means you're doing something. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you enjoy wholesome things, you don't have to choose between a good reputation and a good time. Of course, most people need some spice on their vegetables. This explains the afternoon. <p>Updated: Wed Sep 05, 2018</p> 35abbe9548a83842c4de86323447acc2 Virgo Solar Focus for 09/04/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/virgo-solar-focus Tue, 04 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>There are certain emotions that can focus a person better than the others. Love. Jealousy. Anger. Passion. Planets align to help us focus &#8212; and sometimes focus with a vengeance. A touch of obsessive behavior is not necessarily a bad thing if it's centered on something worthy, as it could be at this point in the Virgo solar journey. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will figure out how a thing works. This takes time, curiosity, care, patience, intelligence, attention. And for everything it takes, it will give even more. <p>Updated: Tue Sep 04, 2018</p> 81ba57d062607080ce74aed5fd5a6650 Lunar Whimsy for 09/03/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/lunar-whimsy Mon, 03 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>When following riskier, wackier and generally more unusual pursuits, leave the pessimists out of it. Though there are times when it's good to have a dubious person in the mix, today that would only sully the experience of moving full steam ahead with unreasonable whimsy under the trendy Gemini moon.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). The assumptions people make about you will usually tell you more about who they are than about who you are. So regardless of how favorable or unfavorable is the response you're getting, do consider the source.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Relationships will be better without interference. Things improve when you stop listening to the advice of your resident know-it-all. Feel your way through.<p>Updated: Mon Sep 03, 2018</p> e829af1fa949b528bfd3df85229d1466 Kissing Moon for 09/02/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/09/18/kissing-moon Sun, 02 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Prairie dogs are known to greet each other with a kiss, their incisors sometimes getting locked together for several seconds. The convivial Gemini moon may amplify the dynamics, favoring a trend of increased friendliness in not only sociable rodents but also gregarious humans.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll command the room. People will clamor for your attention. It's not because you want them to; it's just what happens when you're on a charismatic hot streak such as this one.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Stick to the script and the emotional connection will be null. Veer from the script and the connection is certain, but what sort do you seek? Stay in control of the conversation. Keep a long story short.<p>Updated: Sun Sep 02, 2018</p> fb7ee47804f3fb441e5363a7d9c2d33b Solar Character Test for 09/01/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/18/solar-character-test Sat, 01 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Although it's important to see people in action in order to know who they really are, you should also note that most people perform better when the action is exciting. At this point in the solar journey, life is a bring-your-own-excitement type of invite. The people who are a delight when there's not much going on &#8212; those are the ones to keep close.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Friends who don't agree can be the luckiest relationships you have. Somewhere between your differing points of view lies the elusive answer to a question of recent importance.<p>Updated: Sat Sep 01, 2018</p> 1a7dc5d5aa251676ab4d5297b23988b9 Practicality for 08/31/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/18/practicality Fri, 31 Aug 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>There is nothing that can live in constant chaos. Order is beauty, and beauty is order. Practicality makes life happen predictably, and this is a good and necessary aspect of existence. The Virgo sun urges practical action that moves things forward, that is elegant and right, while Mars direct warns against practical action taken out of fear. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). What you want is not as out of reach as you think. What seems ridiculous to expect may actually be just a little bit out of the normal pattern, and all it will take is an extra push to make it so. <p>Updated: Fri Aug 31, 2018</p> d400678aeca0f6316996ecbf8d258691 Mars Full Tilt for 08/30/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/08/18/mars-full-tilt Thu, 30 Aug 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The direct motion of Mars is in full swing, and for most of the day the warrior moon in Aries will rally behind the assertive (or perhaps aggressive) energy of the red planet. People who don't know their own strength usually find out when what they thought was a casual gesture has unexpectedly large repercussions. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone who has come to your emotional rescue in the past is now in need of a little attention. This won't be a "rescue" per se; rather, it will be the sort of nice acknowledgement that keeps a rescue situation at bay.<p>Updated: Thu Aug 30, 2018</p>
