Mars continues in the deep and passionate energies of Scorpio, but also angles still helpfully to Neptune. We can use this to soothe some of the more turbulent energies at play. How?
Well, we can find ourselves thinking very deeply about issues. Scrutinising things to the nth degree. What Mars and Neptune ask us to do is add some instictiveness to the mix. Whatever the facts may say, or others opinions, how do we feel? For your FREE Daily Horoscope Thursday 21st January 2016 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
No matter how rugged an image you ordinarily try to project Aries, it's possible you feel very different on the inside. And though putting a brave face on any complex scenarios might have given others the impression that you are coping well, are you really? Don't feel that you are weak should you need to open up to a truly trusted person.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You may gain comfort from the fact that friends seem very sensitive and supportive, with today's nurturing lunar ties enabling you to make some deeper connections. In talking things over with a friend or doing something together you enjoy, you might find that issues take a back seat and you're left feeling much refreshed.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your instinct may be to go deeper into whatever bothers you, looking at it in the same way that a detective might seek out clues. Even so, friends may be telling you not to worry so much. Who do you listen to? Currently going with your instincts seems to be your best bet, so continue to use this forensic approach - just don't become too attached to the outcome.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You may have an almost telepathic connection with others, which could be a blessing in disguise. If recent struggles have left you wondering whether you'll ever get through to someone - this can provide real encouragement. In fact, over the next day or so, a cosmic window of opportunity will allow even greater understanding to come flooding in.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
How can you get anything done if you feel you're being continually interrupted? This energy has been a factor for some years now, down to a complex arrangement of energies that have conflict at their core. What can you do? Well, you may need to accept that no one pathway will be perfect. Once you can let go of such an expectation, the pressure will ease.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You may be buoyed up by the excitement that a creative project or new activity are generating. You may be willing to pour a lot of energy into making this a success. What might be causing an issue though, is a desire for fast or even immediate results. You might be better to slow down, and deploy your usual level of precision to the process.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The basis of your existence has very much been under the astral microscope of late. So much so that you may find yourself craving for a lightening of the emotional load this has created. However, with Mercury and Uranus clashing, you may have little choice to resolve to try to find the ways to work through any issues until completion.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Feelings may dance in tune to an inspiring drumbeat, made all the more appealing as the Moon passes into Cancer, which can see you looking for opportunities to broaden your horizons. However, if something new is suggested, there may be a part of you that is tempted to over-think it. Soothe your nervous system by taking one small step forwards.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
What is stirring in the depths of your being, Archer? Pay attention to your dreams as well as those images and ideas that come unbidden into your awareness as you go about your daily business. As you do you may get insights into a present challenge and the positive role it can play if you tackle it in the right spirit.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
With Saturn in your psychological sector making a positive connection to Uranus this can be a time to celebrate your unique strengths and qualities; the intangible reserves that have enabled you to pull out all the stops to attain something worthwhile. Doing so can be helpful if you feel wearied by events and in need of a boost.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
With the Sun in the first degree of your sign you're in the perfect place to plant the seeds of new ideas that you've been dreaming up over recent weeks. And your co-regents of Saturn and Uranus are both influential today and potentially helpful. But someone around you may still seem to take pleasure from targeting your frailties.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Cocooned in a world of feelings, you may be motivated to take action based on fleeting needs or stronger desires. These can take up your time and attention today and might even lead to pleasant encounters and opportunities. However, if friends think you're getting carried away, they may attempt to divert your attention somehow.
