    The Moon sweeps over Pluto today and this can give your emotional feelings far more force. In fact by tomorrow there could be quite a tete-a-tete going on, not dissimilar to what unfolded earlier in July. Whilst brief it could be a reminder that some people around you see life and you through a very different prism to you Aries.

    An echo of events earlier in the month can see some strident opinions being expressed in the next couple of days. That's not a bad thing, but the important thing is that they are views worth being more passionate about, represent how you really feel, and can actually lead to something constructive and good. Check they will.

    You may find yourself enjoying quite an intense encounter in the next day or so. Whether it is good or more challenging, you will probably learn something about yourself through this. Look to avoid too much tension at this time, things could build up and affect your nervous system - especially if you bottle things up.

    Sometimes we can perceive that pressures come from outside of ourselves, with little or no input on our behalf and today this can be one of those days for you. Just consider this; are you quietly emanating an energy which is attracting precisely the difficult vibration that surrounds you? This may not be conscious, but is possible.
  • LEO

    Your equilibrium could be upset today, perhaps by someone who is rather cutting or acerbic in what they say. If you are more of an easy-going Leo, you may resent it if someone keeps rehashing an old grievance or resentment and recycling it in your direction. Then again, is there something you need to let go of?

    You can feel very intense about something or someone today. However, the trick will be to be yourself, but also remain aware that a sense of rebelliousness is circulating the heavens and may see you be more outspoken or restless than usual. This is also probably not the best of times to mix business and pleasure.

    Consummate diplomat you may often be but the planets are conspiring to make things potentially choppy for us all. For you personally, the suggestion is that dealing with people in positions of authority may test your patience. Forceful demands, sudden about turns and erratic attitudes can all see you feeling overwhelmed.

    Your words and points of view will have a major impact on those you come into contact with today. Now I am not suggesting that's not always the case, because a lot of our conversation can be light-hearted and just sociable, but balancing your needs with those of others, may see sparks fly much more than usual at this time.

    One of your most defining features is that you need more space than most, and need to be independent. And even with someone you're close to, any sense of control, jealousy or possessiveness can really light the blue touch paper under the relationship. Old issues can also tumble into the open unexpectedly. Brace yourself.

    With the Moon passing over Pluto in your sign today, your awareness of your own personal power and authority is going to be enhanced. This is most likely to show itself most around a domestic or family situation. However, with Uranus and Mars in a tense stand-off, this is not a good day to jump to instant conclusions.

    Someone could say something to you today which seems to be completely unexpected, unfair and unkind. And you may well have a point. Then again, it could be you who suddenly blurts something out that you've been holding inside, and it could be someone else who is flabbergasted by what you say. Either way surprises abound.

    There may be an opportunity to turn your natural flair and creativity to your advantage. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that you will seize the chance, because it's possible that an instant decision will be demanded of you, one that you don't feel ready to give right away. Whichever, don't be browbeaten by this Pisces.
