AriesThe Moon heads into your solar fourth house today, dear Aries, and while this transit usually encourages a desire to settle in, Mars is stirring things up–in good ways! You’re in wonderful shape for making excellent use of personal time or for work behind the scenes. A low boredom threshold can actually work in your favor, leading you to fun or even breakthrough discoveries. There can be a feeling of wanting to make your luck and opportunities. It’s a fine time for uplifting, forward-looking, and inspired connections and methods. Even so, this is a time when you are not quite as willing to share your thoughts and plans before you come more in touch with them yourself. Intuition runs high right now, making it a good time for original methods and taking actions that free you from hindrances and problems.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Taurus, and your focus is on mental stimulation. With Mars connecting with progressive Uranus, you’re sure to find plenty of it. It’s a potentially excellent day for personal initiatives. It’s an excellent opportunity period for making valuable connections and for standing out from the crowd in a very good way. You need to “own” the path you take, and the best way to do that is to get in touch with where you truly want to go, without the distractions of other people’s agendas and opinions. Energy and confidence are with you today. You are cooperative yet also quite willing to take the lead. Good energy is with you for applying new ideas and methods that help improve your life.
GeminiA good deed or work you’ve done in the past can be rewarded or recognized now, dear Gemini. A progressive, tolerant, forward-looking spirit will help you to achieve your goals more efficiently today and tomorrow. You want to do something out of the ordinary, and by thinking outside the box, you benefit. You possess special enterprise that allows you to capitalize on an opportunity. Others are supportive or, at the very least, cooperative, and this is particularly helpful now since you’re not very interested in interference. It’s a good time to stick your neck out, do something a little differently, and nurture ambition, a project, or a goal. You can be particularly productive with just a little focus. While there can be delays or temporary blocks to your plans now, you can nevertheless enjoy giving special attention to some of your bigger projects. It’s an innovative, self-starting period when you’re inclined to take the initiative.
CancerYour desire to be free and independent surfaces today, dear Cancer. The Moon moves into your sign, animating your emotions. Your inventive side is in the spotlight with a Mars-Uranus aspect. You’re cooperative, but you’d prefer not to have anyone slow you down — you need to follow your internal rhythm. This doesn’t have to stop you from the benefits of sharing your knowledge or expertise. Your unique vision or opinions help you to stand out from the crowd. This can also be a great time for initiatives or plans for publishing, teaching, or learning. Nurturing a special interest, dream, project, or study can be exciting and motivating. A chance to catch up with an old friend is possible now. Your desire to study or learn something special is strong.
LeoIf you need some backing, you’re likely to get it today, dear Leo. Not only are you attracting positive attention, but you’re also inspiring trust. It’s an excellent day for being productive. It’s a good time to apply yourself to a special project or make plans for something that you haven’t had time for in the past. You’re in stellar shape for getting work done, taking charge, and new ideas or methods. Non-traditional methods and attitudes work best for you now. Showing a spirit for advancement and excitement about the future can be infectious, leading to more opportunities. You might also throw yourself into a passion project, research, an investigation, or mystery, and the Moon’s move into your privacy sector today suggests something behind the scenes has the most appeal.
VirgoYou’ll find that others are unusually cooperative and looking forward rather than getting stuck in a groove today, dear Virgo. This is pleasing, even if it’s also a little destabilizing. Common goals and philosophies are apparent now and can help cement a bond. You have a strong sense of adventure, or the desire to stand out as unique or to do something a little different and innovative can dominate. The brave or experimental side of your nature emerges. You might thoroughly enjoy pouring more energy and devotion into building a connection. You’re also likely to have interesting and inspired conversations, but the focus is more on getting things done than only talking about them. This can be an animated time for relationships–someone can rile you up or motivate you.
LibraToday’s energies are forward-looking and stimulating, for the most part, dear Libra, even if they’re not your typical flavor. A Mars-Uranus sextile favors taking small risks and making progress rather than sticking with the tried-and-true. Your idealism is in the spotlight, and it can motivate you to make some changes. You may have a strong desire to move forward with a project or even a chore, and you could reach a breakthrough moment, or there can be a health matter or pursuit that you’re approaching in a new way. Either way, you’re enthusiastic and ready to take on a small challenge. You want to do something out of the ordinary, fresh, and unique, and you can get a lot done with this kind of inspiration and a sense that you’re doing something cutting edge or exciting. A significant discovery about a financial matter or intimate relationship made now can set you on a new course. Breaking from the past may be in focus, and it feels good.
ScorpioYour energy levels and power of attraction run high today, dear Scorpio. You’re ready to take on a challenge to be involved in a project or relationship that excites you. Good energy is with you for creative tasks and for inspired ways of interacting with others. You are willing to take the lead in a relationship right now, without stepping on anyone’s toes or coming across as pushy. Being direct works wonders today. Express yourself creatively without inhibition for fabulous results now. The Moon moves into your spirit sector and your taste for something a little different is strong. Helping you out with this is a Mars-Uranus aspect that stirs your partnership and creativity sectors. Your romantic or creative life might heat up, and you’re seeking playful ways of expressing yourself.
SagittariusYou have added energy for work around the home or for taking the lead in your personal life, dear Sagittarius. It’s a great time to work on letting go of grudges, which can be toxic to you the longer you hold onto them. Today’s energies invite forward movement, change, and liberation, making it ideal for putting something negative, difficult, or unhealthy behind you. A forward-looking, positive mood suits you now as Mars and Uranus head into a harmonious aspect. If you’re feeling inspired, you can move mountains, and opportunities might emerge (or you’re making them) to approach things a little differently. It can be a good time for technological improvements that improve your life or work. You can turn unglamorous tasks into something creative and exciting today. Transits today tend to bring animation, energy, and perhaps a bit of commotion to your personal life, home, or family matters. Directing energy into household projects and family activities can be constructive and satisfying.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your partnership sector, dear Capricorn, and transits today support a forward-looking, positive approach. You may be paying special attention to a personal interest, studies, or project, and it’s exciting and motivating. You might thoroughly enjoy attending to the little things that help you succeed, and patience is in good supply. You can be in the mood to take a personal gamble or something new or different, especially with writing, speaking, or creating, and the results can be fun. Somebody, or perhaps a piece of news, might challenge you to think in new ways or to consider an entirely different perspective. If given some spontaneity and leeway, you can come up with a fabulous idea now. You’re standing out as especially creative and unique, and this is a fine time for energy, initiative, creativity, and romantic attraction. You’re likely to feel competent and confident about what you’re learning, sharing, and doing.
AquariusToday can be a very productive day, dear Aquarius, and you may spend quite some time nurturing a project or caring for your valuables. There is just enough detachment today that you can get to the other side of a problem. The day holds wonderful promise for stimulation and special interests as well. You’re likely to entertain some interesting and unique new creative ideas about money or domestic matters, or your special approach to old problems can help you put a negative situation behind you. Different methods applied to the home, family, money, living conditions, or living arrangements can be in focus and especially positive. It may be time to upgrade, improve, and innovate. You could be a little bolder in business or with money, and you’re ready to take action on a matter that has been lingering or stagnating. You may be motivating loved ones with your enthusiasm now. Or, a stronger desire for financial independence motivates you now.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your sector of enjoyment and self-expression, dear Pisces, and you’re in the mood to have some fun. A Mars-Uranus aspect helps out on this front, as it helps you detach just enough to feel freer. Good energy is with you for some friendly competition that stimulates you to do your best or to reach higher. Don’t be afraid to be creative. You might decide to throw yourself into personal or mental projects, or there can be opportunities to express and enjoy yourself that give you a sense of moving forward. It can be a time when you feel you can take on virtually anything, and this is particularly the case on a mental level. This aspect inspires you to express yourself more assertively, spontaneously, or courageously. Your projects, interests, or even news you hear can inspire you. If you are not already totally into something, it’s a great time to explore new ideas. A new perspective on an old problem can lead you to action. Drive, enterprise, courage, and energy are in more abundant supply now.
