Today's Horoscope for Wednesday, October 4: How to Handle a Full Moon Confidence Crash
A full moon in Aries tomorrow means there’s already some intense lunar energy swirling around each sign. This full moon brings action, and today, you may find that people around you are pushing you to make a decision, complete a deadline, or otherwise act with urgency you may not have felt just a day ago. Today is a high stress day where the stakes may feel huge. But feel is the operative word. You may have a lot more time and options than you think. The key today is to take a deep breath, stall when necessary, and know that you’re the one in control of your life. Here, what else signs should look forward to—and watch out for—today.

Aries Daily Horoscope
Did I turn off the stove? Did I lock the door? Today, you’re second-guessing yourself. Chill out. It’s just the restless lunar energy of the Aries full moon, which ignites your need to do something—even if everything’s already been done. A yoga class (preferably restorative, not hot and sweaty) is in order today. Remember, everything is under control. A crystal can also help serve as a reminder to chill.
Taurus Daily Horoscope
Bulls pride themselves on being pragmatic, but the Aries full moon is creating turbulence in your emotional sector, and you’re feeling sort of weepy, sad, and paranoid all at once. You may also feel as if all your friends are either a) neglecting you, or b) out to get you. The reality is c) neither. Take a break from your phone—put a do not disturb on your texts—and see if a friend can meet you for coffee and conversation. You need real talk, and you need it now. (Need more of a boost?

Gemini Daily Horoscope
A Venus-Mars alignment today is creating chaos in your relationships, where you feel simultaneously passionate and angry. The bad news: You may jump to conclusions, pick an argument, or just feel generally unsatisfied. The good news: If you end up fighting with your partner, the makeup sex will be awesome. Better yet, give yourself some space to chill out. You may find that what you need is some distance today (and trust us, the sex will still be awesome tomorrow).
Cancer Daily Horoscope
Your home is your everything, and some news regarding your home or family—either that you receive today or have received in the past few weeks—may make you feel unmoored. While you might not be able to change the situation, focus on what you can control. Even just cleaning or decluttering can make a big difference in giving you that tranquility you crave.

Leo Daily Horoscope
You’ve been full speed ahead on a personal project these past few months, but you may find yourself second-guessing a few elements today. Instead of obsessing, changing things, or making a reactive move, take a deep breath and put aside the project. Things will look different once the conflicting energies of the Aries full moon pass. In the meantime, remember: You’re not a failure if you crawl into bed early and stop burning the candle on both ends. Relaxation is good for the soul.
Virgo Daily Horoscope
With Venus entering your sign, you’re focused on your relationships, and things are good. So, maximize those feel-good vibes and make some plans for the future. Dating someone new? It’s not a bad idea to float holiday plans today. Attached? Today is a great day to truly reconnect in whatever way you two like best. Enjoy!

Libra Daily Horoscope
Have the birthday blues? You’re not alone. Today, the sun forms a defensive angle toward Neptune, making you second guess some major steps. You’ll need to actively work on feeling confident: Write an “I’m awesome” list, make a happiness board (here’s how), or just have a friend give you a pep talk. You’re awesome, Libra, but today, your job is believing it.
Scorpio Daily Horoscope
Scorpio has been in full worker bee mode, and today is no exception. But with the restless energy of the full moon in Aries approaching, Scorpio would do well to quit while they’re ahead. If you’re getting prickly or defensive, take a break for a few hours. (Want to really unwind? Try crystal light therapy or DIY a relaxation session with crystals!) After all, there’s no prize for no sleep.

Sagittarius Daily Horoscope
Venus is cranking up your confidence, and you’re pretty unstoppable today, Sags. While other signs may find that the swirling energies of the full moon in Aries are cramping their ambitions, you can confidently go full speed ahead on plans. Just remember, the other people in your life may need some empathy and TLC — it’s a great day to give it to them.
Capricorn Daily Horoscope
Today feels chaotic, right Caps? While you tend to hunker down and turn inward when life feels out of control, a check-in with a trusted family member or friend is everything today. Also, it’s a good time to rethink expectations. You know you can be too hard on yourself. Lighten up a bit.

Aquarius Daily Horoscope
Aquarians rely on imagination and whimsy, and you’ve had too little of either, lately. Take the time to be a little silly today. Watch a movie, listen to a funny podcast, or even just aimlessly go down a YouTube spiral. Adding some humor and levity to your AM will give you the perspective you need to make some big picture decisions later in the day.
Pisces Daily Horoscope
You’ve been feeling pretty introspective, especially as the moon was in your sign earlier in the week. Since a lot of big questions have come up, it may be a good time to talk with someone else. A life coach could help you untangle some feelings (here, what one does and how to find one!); so can a trusted friend. But whatever you decide, give yourself a chance to connect with your feelings today.
