You’re putting new spins on old ideas, and you might find something valuable to you that you’d lost. Do your best to enjoy the moment. The Moon moves into your solar eleventh house, where it will stay until late Monday, and this transit takes away the emphasis from performance and stimulates your interest in socializing.

There is good energy with you today for personal and family matters, dear Cancer. Perhaps new freedoms are afforded you now, and it feels great. The day’s energies may seem to favor emotions and pleasures over practical activities, and it would be wise to allow more time for yourself to get things done if you’re on call. This is a bright day for personal magnetism, although you can also be a little retiring and not very easy to get close to just for now. As well, you tend to weigh the pros and cons rather than jump into action with love and affections for the time being. A strong attraction is possible, and it may be about a renewal of old feelings for someone. The Moon’s move into your spirit sector stimulates your desire for a little more from your life.

There can be some exciting and creative energy stimulated with a love interest for some of you.

Especially fine energy is with you on a personal level, dear Libra, but material affairs can also benefit. Letting go of tension and frustration can help you enjoy yourself, and creative efforts can be rewarding.

This can also be a time when you successfully express an opinion that you previously felt was beyond words. It can feel marvelous to be understood by someone special now.
