You radiate good energy, and you tend to attract positive attention and feedback as a result. You are at greater ease expressing both your ideas and feelings.

You’re expressing yourself more freely, and others take notice! Enjoying and pampering yourself can figure strongly.

You’re giving out good vibes and receiving them in return.
CancerOthers are attracted to your ideas and your intelligence today, dear Cancer, but avoid overthinking and intellectualizing things that are best handled with heart. This morning’s energies can feel chaotic or pressuring, but you come into your own as the day progresses. There’s something beneficial or valuable related to your social life, and it’s easier to iron out differences with others. However, Venus has just moved into your solar twelfth house, making it a generally good time to process recent events and current feelings. Until May 7th, benefits come from paying more attention to the hidden elements and patterns of your interactions. You look at your life, affections, and relationships in a new light during this cycle. It’s a time for checking in with your deeper feelings about a matter or a person. Fortunately, the introspection you do now can be constructive for after May 7th, when Venus will spend time in your sign, and you’re likely to feel refreshed and ready to turn over a whole new leaf in your romantic or social life. Until then, love may be private, undercover, or confusing. Enjoyment of personal time is likely now, however.
LeoIf you need backing or support, today is good for getting it, dear Leo. There is some tendency for small problems to crop up early in the day, after which it’s easier to apply yourself.

It’s also strong for joining a group, working together with others as a team, socializing with associates, networking efforts, and setting long-ranging happiness goals.
VirgoWhile early-day transits can have you feeling on edge, dear Virgo, they can also pull up problem areas that need your attention. As the day progresses, you find it easy to slip into a steady mood. The Moon spends the day in your sector of joy and creativity, and it’s a time of the lunar month for enjoying and appreciating your leisure time.

It can be incredibly satisfying to pour your attention into something special. The weeks ahead generally favor a focus on the more intricate or complex side of your relationships or finances. Your approach to the trickier grey areas of life is considerably more gracious during this cycle.
SagittariusYou’re inclined to want to make or build something today, dear Sagittarius, rather than pioneer or innovate.

Work and charm are tied to one another during this cycle. You might also especially enjoy supporting and helping others in the weeks ahead.
AquariusWith today’s Moon, you need more time to yourself or space to process, digest, heal, and wind down, dear Aquarius. Pausing your busy schedule is most appropriate now if you can manage it. You’re inclined to go low-profile for now, but problem-solving is natural. Talking things through with loved ones can also figure strongly and positively.

You are now more willing to take some personal risks with your heart, personality, and creative talents. Your natural charm is noticed and appreciated more than usual, and you harmonize with others easily. There could be happy events surrounding love, leisure, or hobbies.

Friendly energy takes over, and it’s a fine time for some intellectual companionship or stimulation. Conversations that revolve around personal interests and causes can be in focus.
