There can be particular enjoyment of work and health pursuits. It’s also a time when you readily support others and feel better for it. Focusing on your personal needs also makes sense since it helps you draw your boundaries, and discovering your inner strength boosts your relationships.
Energies for work and practical matters are particularly empowering for you today, dear Virgo. You can gain an advantage with a real feel for what others want, coupled with your confidence in what you’re doing. It’s a time for getting an edge, and it feels great. Still, the Moon spends the day in your sign, encouraging some personal time.

A hobby can be satisfying, and you’re putting more heart in whatever you’re doing. It’s a comfortable time for self-expression.
Today’s transits highlight and boost your personality and charisma, dear Libra. Expressive and creative pursuits are in especially good favor. You may very well gain an advantage or edge in a romantic, playful, or creative endeavor. Even so, the Moon does spend the day in your privacy sector, and this transit usually suggests you’re laying low. Friendly energy is with you even though you can be a little retiring. It’s a time for engaging your imagination, relaxing, resting, and reflecting. If it’s possible to take a light schedule today, it’s a good idea. Do watch for some self-deception today, since wishful thinking could skew judgment. Give yourself time to come to concrete conclusions. You’re clever enough to know when it’s best to leave something alone and when it’s a good idea to state your case. Helping others seems to come naturally to you, and activities that serve to refresh or renew yourself can be particularly welcome now.
You’re sensitive to issues that are brewing around you today, dear Scorpio, and this is helpful. Still, there can be some difficulties getting to solid conclusions.

A focus on healing energies and positive reinforcement can be most welcome. It’s a good day to honor uniqueness and freedom of spirit. Empowering energy is with you for personal or domestic matters–you’re feeling more inner courage and confidence, and support is easy to find and give. Improved living conditions help boost your mood.
Helpful transits today boost communicating and connecting, dear Sagittarius. You might gain an advantage through information, news, or an important project now. Or, you might develop a mutually beneficial relationship. Cooperation goes a little deeper than usual, and you could find that as you boost and support someone, they return the favor. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart nevertheless, and this puts a practical spin on the day’s energies. Taking care of business feels more comfortable than usual.
You’re in good shape for understanding your boundaries today, dear Capricorn. You’ve been getting in touch with your needs and wants in recent weeks, and this helps boost your decision-making skills. Constructive and respectful conversations or shared activities can figure strongly and feel right now. You might gain an edge or get ahead in your work or business. Still, the Moon spends the day in your sector of adventure, and there can be a spirited theme weaving through the day. Transits seem to enhance your self-confidence and encourage optimism. While it’s a time for feeling engaged, there can be some uncertainty, and it’s best to play with ideas for a little while longer.
Your personal appeal runs high today, dear Aquarius, and gaining respect, admiration, or support seems to come more readily than usual. You’re in a boosted position for building rapport and trust. Still, with the Moon in your intimacy sector all day, you might prefer to observe things for a while longer before making big decisions or taking action. You’re especially sensitive and aware emotionally, but also a bit susceptible to wishful thinking, which can skew perceptions a bit. It’s not an ideal time to purchase or invest, but it’s a fine time for mental explorations. An intimate or family relationship can reach a new level of bonding.
Today’s influences are particularly supportive on an emotional level, dear Pisces. You might feel you’ve gained an edge or learned something genuinely useful, and this boosts you up. Your observations and insights are on point, and you see your inner needs and desires more clearly. The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, however, and while some attention to your inner world is wonderful now, you’re also getting closer to someone important in your life. Compromises or agreements come more easily today than usual, but it’s not necessarily a day for locking things down–keeping things open-ended seems best at the moment. Mutually beneficial situations can figure strongly now.
