Keep your perspective: don’t make small things larger than they are, and don’t count the small things as meaningless. Everything counts, though be aware of your tendency to exaggerate on the one hand, and get lost in the details on the other. Handle your affairs by prioritizing the most important matters, and the most timely; and by breaking big tasks into manageable steps. Venus newly in your birth sign suggests you will associate generosity with popularity. Be sure to keep those things in their proper places.

Written in the Planets
Today’s first quarter Moon describes a good landscape for moving something forward, perhaps in an especially expressive way. This lunar phase is actually part of a bigger pattern: a grand cross in the mutable signs involving the Gemini Sun, the Virgo Moon, Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. That configuration may offer some stability for whatever it is you need to do.
Here’s the question: do you feel like you need to loosen something up, or nail something down? Over the course of a year around the zodiac, the mutable signs come at the ends of seasons: after a fixed sign and before the next cardinal sign. As a result, they can sometimes act like one or the other. So you may want to check whether you’re at a point of needing to add flexibility and wiggle room to a process that has plateaued, or whether you’ve been vacillating to the point of inaction and now need to make a firm decision between options.
With the Sun also conjunct the centaur planet Asbolus, it’s also possible you’re in a ‘survivor’s mindset’ of some sort. We’ve all been through shit, and it’s not productive to compare who’s been through the worst; at the same time, there’s value in awareness of where you’ve been, seen alongside where you are now. All of that exists within you at all times. Since you get to choose what to do with it, why not see what new and beautiful places you can go with your well-earned wisdom? Today’s astrology suggests that you don’t have to be a Pollyanna to contribute to the cycle of positive vibes — and even small acts of courage. You only need to be you.
