Your vision is sharp, which is good for business moves or strategies for life path and planning purposes. It’s rather easy to drum up support for what you’re doing and saying right now. You seem fully equipped to persuade and charm with your communications. While you’re a person who understands and appreciates subtleties, straightforwardness and candor today are much appreciated. The Moon’s transit of your spirit sector keeps you looking forward and positively-focused.

You can feel quite enthusiastic about pursuing a learning endeavor or further a mental interest. Conversations with a partner or special friend can be super helpful, encouraging, and motivating. You are attracting strong, competent, and loyal people into your circle or network.

LibraToday’s energies are particularly bright for tackling difficult problems or taking on a mental challenge, dear Libra. Communications can be exciting, and exciting information or fun conversations can figure strongly. You are especially willing to act on your ideas, and although you’re self-motivated now, a partner or special someone can be encouraging as well now. For example, someone’s feedback can stir up a new idea or direction, and motivation follows. You see the bigger picture, and you’re quick to identify your priorities. You’re also quick to get to the point. The Moon’s transit of your sector of work, routine, and habits encourages you to fix problems and take care of your chores so that you can feel on top of things.
ScorpioThe Moon transits your creative sector all day, dear Scorpio, encouraging you to find your joy. You’re more aware of your need for personal enjoyment and self-expression. A Mercury-Mars transit sharpens your thinking and communications. It’s straightforward energy that helps us get to the point. It makes sense that with so many virtual communications happening at this time to watch for too-direct conversations that can miss the mark emotionally. Otherwise, it can be quite charming to be a little bold or open. You can be driven to put an idea into action or to pursue a line of thought today, especially if it’s related to family, home, health, and work. This can be a time of organizing, and you’ll find it easier to get through things quickly and efficiently with your current enthusiasm.
SagittariusYou’re putting a creative spin on whatever you’re doing today, dear Sagittarius. Decisions tend to be quick but practical with a Mercury-Mars transit inspiring a direct, positive approach. It’s a great time to take care of business or get clarity on a matter. Use extra boosts of energy and motivation to fix problems, work enthusiastically at your projects or current interests, and look for ways to clear up the clutter in your life. You’re inclined to say it like it is now, and for the most part, it’s going over well. With virtual communications, it’s more important to communicate warmth as you do so, however. The Moon’s transit of your home and family sector encourages you to center yourself emotionally rather than exert yourself by taking on the unfamiliar. It’s a good time in the Moon’s cycle to build or restore your energy.
CapricornEnergy levels improve with enthusiasm today, dear Capricorn. The Moon transits your communications sector all day, activating your need to learn and share. It also stimulates your curiosity. But what’s especially notable now is a Mercury-Mars transit that helps you get right to the point. Your candor is welcome now, and you’re willing to take the lead to get things done or to work independently at your own pace. It’s a good time for tackling problems on both personal and business levels. You’re likely to feel hopeful and optimistic feelings revolving around work matters and living conditions, even if you’re making changes that you hadn’t anticipated. The key now is that you’re working with what you have and doing so resourcefully. It’s easier than usual to get into a positive and determined frame of mind.
AquariusToday’s Moon transit inspires you to build rather than innovate, dear Aquarius, and it’s refreshing to do so. A Mercury-Mars influence stirs up mental enthusiasm and helps you generate exciting ideas. It’s a good time for personal magnetism and influence, and it can very well be something you communicate or do that magnetizes opportunities to you. You’d rather put a plan into motion than to mull things over, although if you do live this energy through the mind, it’s a great time for exciting musings. Be firm but positive for best results today. Organizing and prioritizing come more readily as you get straight to the point and avoid beating around the bush. It feels good to be decisive.
PiscesWith today’s transits, dear Pisces, you can more easily focus your mind and prioritize. You are ready to take on intellectual challenges, and your problem-solving skills are above par. Tricky issues or ideas can be tackled now with greater ease. Communications with others are energetic and forward-looking. A Mercury-Mars aspect today supplies good energy for healing activities, as you gravitate toward regenerative activities. It’s a good time for gaining new information through study and observation. While you’re mentally sharp, the Moon spends the day in your sign, ramping up your emotions. It can be a colorful, connected time.
