There is far easier energy with you today for communicating and connecting, Aries. You can bring more imagination to your mental pursuits and communications. You could make a special connection with a friend today, or simply boost an existing friendship. Conversations can frequently turn to common interests, personal anecdotes, shared memories, and other warm exchanges. If you need to present your ideas in some way, you can do so with more flair today. Otherwise, it’s simply a good time for getting others interested in what you have to say or onboard with what you want to do.
You are especially drawn to taking care of practical matters today, Taurus, particularly related to what will make you more comfortable, but you also can fare very well on a personal level. There is an instinctive knowing about your priorities and what needs to get done, when, how, and where! There is an air of authority to you that either has others turning to you to take the lead or that motivates you to be a leader. Tomorrow, Mars will begin its energetic influence on your money and possessions sector, and this will stimulate your drive to take care of your material and comfort needs even further.
You are far more clear-headed today, Gemini, and your mood improves considerably. This is a good time for looking ahead, rising above smaller problems, de-stressing, and doing something non-routine. You are happier in the world of logic, and with Mercury now in a better state, you can feel clearer and more confident. Your courage should improve further when Mars transits your sign, starting tomorrow. There has been a lot of fogginess, indecision, and energy drains recently, which are set to clear up.
You can be quite content operating behind the scenes today, Cancer, or in the position of observer, as you fully enjoy people-watching and looking for subtle cues. You might enjoy a mystery of sorts today, and sharing some observations or ideas with someone you trust can be the icing on the cake. Something about Cancers that isn’t necessarily obvious is an intellectual interest in, and tendency to endlessly analyze, the past, dreams, psychology, hidden matters, and the like. This is due to having Air signs on the emotional, deep, hidden houses in the Cancer solar chart. Today, this tendency is emphasized with the Moon and Mercury linking some of these houses up in a favorable, happy way.
You’re far clearer today, Leo, and can get a really good grasp of what’s going on around you. Your judgments are good and sound, as you are accessing both the emotional and rational sides of your mind. People are more thoughtful with you, and you could have some very pleasant exchanges now. Conversations can revolve around memories or personal anecdotes, and spending time with friends is favored, and so is writing. You may find it easier to speak your mind without causing problems.
This is a good day for seeing things a little more clearly, and for finding better balance between your rational and emotional sides when making decisions, Virgo. If you need to brush up on your skills or knowledge, especially practical ones, it’s a good time to do so. You’re more inclined to help others out, teach, and instruct today, as you are speaking or otherwise communicating with more authority, but you’re also totally in tune with others on any level. With Mars moving into your career sector tomorrow, get ready for an ambitious, energetic period ahead.
It’s especially easy for you to express your feelings today, Libra, in a way that’s well-received, likely because your delivery is especially balanced. This can be especially sweet after a day of mental fog as well as unclear communications and situations. You are not the most decisive of the zodiac signs, largely because you have the wonderful talent of seeing both sides of a situation, but today’s energies help you to draw conclusions and feel a little more confident about where you’d like to go and what you’d like to do. More and more, you’re reaching out and going after what you want, and with Mars entering a position of harmony with your sign tomorrow, you’ll enjoy even more gumption and enthusiasm.
Today brings wonderful energy for home-related activities, Scorpio. There’s a strong tendency to talk about personal anecdotes, memories, and the past right now, and in a very balanced, easygoing way. Even though it’s likely to be a more withdrawn, quiet, and introspective day, you quite naturally move from observing to socializing and back again. It’s a good time for picking up where you left off with a friend or family member, without the pressures and expectations that can sometimes turn meetings and interactions a little sour.
This can be a good day for networking, communicating with friends, and making casual connections, Sagittarius. There is a sense that people are respecting one another, or you could be feeling backed by others, and this helps you to feel freer. You are especially present in your conversations, and are able to listen without distraction rather than simply express yourself. This can win you approval and possibly even open some doors for you. Your close relationships are likely to enliven with Mars beginning its transit of your partnership zone tomorrow, so get on good terms with significant others.
This is a time for thinking up ways to manage your life more effectively, Capricorn, but the kind of thinking and conversing you’re doing now is nevertheless quite pressure-free and casual. There is a good balance between logic and feelings, making it a nice time to enjoy one another’s company without too much in the way of interference or misunderstanding. Feeling emotionally and materially secure is always important to you, but today, it’s a stronger drive. You might enjoy coming to solutions, and a balanced approach to doing so can keep you in a good place mentally.
You can be hard to keep up with today, Aquarius! However, your conversations are the perfect speed right now, and your ideas are well-accepted. There is an open-minded flow of energy circling around you, and you may very well be the main reason for it. There is a lot of inspiration to find in big ideas and ideals these days, and people who engage your mind are the ones you want to be around most. The Moon is in your sign all day, bringing out your need to feel validated and for your emotional needs to be recognized.
You tend to probe things a little more deeply these days, Pisces, but today, you are inclined to do so in only a semi-serious way. In fact, you may very well make a game out of a mystery or an investigation. There is a special attraction to what’s hidden from sight, and particularly the reasons why that might be. You might discover that the ability to step aside a little from a situation in order to see things more objectively and dispassionately is like a tonic – you need it, not only to gain perspective, but also in order to take a break from too much serious thought. It’s appropriate to take some extra time for yourself today with the Moon in the sign just behind yours.

LUNAR PHASE: DISSEMINATING
Moon 135 to 90 degrees behind the Sun.
Sharing our knowledge with the world is a major motivation at this stage. We believe we have gained much knowledge and wisdom through our experiences, and want to ensure others have the benefit as well.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on May 10th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
