Madame Miranda posts are penned by M. Davis-McAfee and based on the motivations behind each star sign, as described on astrology.com, and the positioning of celestial bodies mapped by theplanetstoday.com. While we appreciate the self-reflection that astrology can inspire, our horoscopes are for entertainment purposes only.
On Sunday, December 4th, a waxing gibbous Moon conjoins with Eris retrograde, a dwarf planet that controls our rebellious sides, under Aries. Aries is already a fiery sign by itself, but add the resistance and emotion of Eris and the Moon, and things are bound to get even hotter. A stand-off between Venus-Mercury and Mars only adds to the tension.
How will your sign fit into the celestial mix today?
Don’t let this temporary setback convince you that it will last forever, Aries. Hyperbolizing your situation won’t create any productive solutions; it will only push you further into a warped reality that doesn’t actually reflect your surroundings.
Are you really stuck in a disagreement, or are both of you failing to listen to what the other has to say? This impasse is more manageable than you realize. But you won’t know if you refuse the notion of compromise altogether.
You’re not always going to feel your best, Gemini. People have good days and bad days. It isn’t your job to suppress your negative emotions. However, it is your responsibility to communicate your feelings clearly and thoughtfully.
Just because something is familiar doesn’t necessarily mean it’s positive. And when it comes to your most detrimental habits and behaviors, actively rebelling against them is a good thing. It’s the only way to kickstart your personal growth.
You’ve been so hyper-focused on small parts of things that once made you happy that they’re starting to shapeshift. The stars urge you to switch up your perspective and remember why you enjoyed these things in the first place.
Despite what your insecurities are telling you, this problem is simpler to solve than you think. Look at it pragmatically, void of your emotions and bias. The solution is staring you right in the face, Virgo.
The most significant changes often occur in our backyard as small, almost imperceptible shifts. Just because it might look like nothing is happening doesn’t mean that it’s true. Trust yourself and the process, Scorpio. The rewards will come soon.
The universe rarely follows our preferred timelines, Sag. That doesn’t mean you’re a failure when things inevitably go sideways; it’s just a part of life. Roll with the punches as best you can in the meantime.
Don’t try to force motivation that isn’t there, Cap. Your body is trying to tell you that it needs rest, and you’d be wise to listen to it. There will be time for action soon enough. But for now, you ought to slow down.
New perspectives naturally point out the flaws in our previous ones, which can make growth an uncomfortable process, to say the least. Power through the discomfort, and keep your eyes on the silver lining. Better days lie ahead, Aquarius.
Be wary of honeymoon phases coloring your perception of reality. While your ability to devote yourself to another person or idea can be admirable at times, you must be careful not to let it lead you astray. Stay focused.
