However, do consider ideas and insights coming in, as they can be inspired. This transit also helps move you forward, although it’s more about quick assessments and sudden ideas and insights than calculated moves. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, suggesting a real need to wind down, even if you’re mentally excited.
LibraClarity seems to come from mental detachment today, dear Libra, with Mercury and Uranus coming into alignment. Ideas coming to you can be particularly inspired.

Something revealing or the missing puzzle piece of a mystery can emerge. There can be a revelation about an intimate relationship or a sudden craving for more independence happening now. You’re likely to feel excited, and others may find your ideas or insights quite fascinating. You’re ready to put a bad habit or draining element of the past behind you. The potential for feeling all wound up is also strong, and it’s best to watch for this since it might interfere with breakthrough thinking. Some of your inner stirrings or realizations can seem to break through boundaries and may even feel a little uncomfortable, but they’re designed to push you forward.
