Your mind tunes into progressive ideas and possible areas for improvement today, dear Aries. You can be privy to some exciting news or revelations, possibly about business or money. You might hear of something that was previously hidden, and this helps jump-start your thinking processes. Open-mindedness is rewarded.

This can be a time of new developments or unusual events surrounding business or financial matters, and of innovative new insights. Your direction may shift a little now as the result of ideas or news coming to you today. You’re sociable and curious.
You’re feeling grounded today, dear Taurus. Still, you’re open to new ideas, which is vital as Mercury and Uranus are coming together, rewarding open minds. It’s a good time for playing with ideas before putting them into motion, and for paying particular attention to ideas that appear to come to you out of the blue–it’s a day of interesting synchronicity or surprise. Inventive new ideas, dreams, and possibilities can figure strongly now. Look to friends and group activities for opportunities to mingle. Creative thinking can emerge as you let your mind go. A helpful conversation, invitation, or piece of news may figure strongly, and it can be a pleasant surprise! There seem to be many options open to you, and good energy for detaching yourself a little, helping you to detox and let go of accumulated stress.
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Gemini, bringing your emotions to life. Its harmony with the Sun suggests you’re more popular than usual, and others are cooperating. You’re in a good mood and have a positive mindset. It can be an exciting day for insight into a relationship, as well as for taking a good look at the hidden layers of a situation, project, or person. You might choose to tackle resentments as you view issues from a somewhat detached perspective with a Mercury-Uranus influencing the day. It’s also a good time to become better informed since your mind is wide open, and exciting ideas are circulating. Listen to your gut instincts when approaching decisions, particularly those related to career, life direction, or public relations. You can come up with great ideas, or you might solve a long-standing problem. You’re bringing inventiveness and unique insight to the day, and you may very well get credit for it.
You’re in an ideal position to do an inventory of your feelings and reconnect with deeper needs today, dear Cancer. The Moon’s in your privacy sector all day, making it important that you take things easy and keep a low profile just for now. The day favors activities that revolve around getting rest, time for reflection or deep thought, research and investigation, and volunteer work. You might admit to feelings you’ve been avoiding. With a Mercury-Uranus aspect active now, you see many possibilities, and this feels great rather than overwhelming. It’s a fine time for entertaining new ideas and making new plans, and friendships are stimulating and lively. Networking can lead to useful and pleasant discoveries. While you’re taking things easy, doing some mingling can be refreshing now.
The Moon spends the day in your friendship sector, dear Leo, encouraging you to seek out like-minded people or pressure-free interactions. You have many channels for self-expression available today. Others are more cooperative, appreciative, and tolerant than usual. You can also find it more natural than usual to connect with your dreams and ideals. There can be good opportunities to communicate and connect with others as Mercury heads into harmony with Uranus. You are more intuitive these days, and today is an especially good time for opening up even conversations about normally tricky things.

Work, duties, or routines can thrive as a result of your increased motivation today, dear Virgo. Others may expect you to take the lead, and doing so seems to come more naturally than usual now. You’re in great shape for consulting with others, increasing your understanding of a special person in your life, or coming up with bold new ideas for the future. Interactions with people close to you can be animated and stimulating today and tomorrow. Conversations are refreshingly open, honest, and revealing. It’s a time for learning or teaching something new, and for gaining some inspiration through experimenting with alternative or out-of-the-ordinary activities. Detaching yourself just a little from a situation gives things a fun and positive spin.
You’re in a more playful mood today, dear Libra, and others are genuinely appreciating your spirit and uniqueness. You’ll find others are cooperative as the energy of the day flows smoothly with your fundamental nature. Love relationships receive a breeze of warm energy.

You can gain valuable new insights or discoveries about health, work, habits, and routine matters. Your thinking is ahead of the times, and your mind can take you to unusual places today. You might readily shrug off life’s minor inconveniences and challenges, and it feels great to do so. Positive vibes while pursuing your daily routines or in your work are likely now, and quite possibly, social opportunities can result. Pleasant surprises can surround intimate relationships or attachments.
This can be a quiet but productive day, dear Scorpio. You can be busy around the home or with family or enjoying freer, more accepting relationships with important people in your life.

Being open and forthcoming with family can be rewarding now, or you’re approaching your interactions in a new, fresh way. Reasoning things out comes more easily than usual today with a Mercury-Uranus connection forming. This transit encourages creative, progressive thinking and conversations. You’re letting go and moving forward, at least on a mental level. Through honest conversations and realizations, you can get to a place of far greater understanding. You might discover a new method or gadget that adds some freshness to your day.
Feeling on top of your practical affairs frees you up emotionally today, dear Capricorn. It’s a good idea to clearly separate work and play today so that you can enjoy each more fully. A Mercury-Uranus aspect forming now is ideal for inspiration as well as the discovery of needs or wants that you haven’t fully acknowledged. People are attracted to your unique perspective, and you may be providing some unique guidance to others. Open and honest conversations with others, particularly a partner, lover, or child, can be in focus today. There can be much enjoyment derived from your learning endeavors. Channels for communication can open up in general, through updated technology, for example, as you discover new, improved, or especially interesting ways to make connections. News from a love interest could be pleasantly unexpected. Alternatively, you can be filled with a desire to express your talents, artistic abilities, or even your feelings for someone.
As the Moon harmonizes with the Sun in your sign today, dear Aquarius, energies are supportive of self-expression or channeling your energy into productive, satisfying activities. You have a stronger sense of direction and purpose now, and you could find ideas shared today particularly refreshing.

The chance to enjoy conversations about the things that genuinely interest you can emerge. You could be making valuable connections, or you might receive an invitation now.
