With the Moon’s trine to Saturn and then Jupiter, you might thoroughly enjoy the planning or mapping out of details stage of a venture. You are active but pacing yourself, and this is ideal.

You’re managing your time well today, and a moderate pace becomes you.
LeoPeople in your life are more likely to connect or speak up today, dear Leo. Consider that underlying matters can complicate what seem to be positive communications.

You can resolve many problems through brainstorming and analysis, and it can help to analyze feelings or affections from time to time. You’re likely to feel directed and motivated as the Moon harmonizes with Jupiter and Saturn. These transits help you see the benefits of taking things quietly and moderately.

VirgoConversations today tend to revolve around love, relationships, pleasure, and emotions, dear Virgo, although the general approach is detached and not necessarily sensitive. If you have the chance, create something fun or fabulous, even if it’s simply a creative dinner. Love feelings seem to dominate today, even if it’s more about thinking about them than connecting with them! Helping you out with keeping things moderate and well-paced is the Moon’s harmony with Jupiter and Saturn. These influences remind you of the benefits of taking things one step at a time. Even good things can become burdens if you overdo them. It may not be worth taking on more if it wears you out or wears down your patience.
LibraRelationship matters discussed now tend to be light and airy, dear Libra. It can feel good to take a step back and think about or analyze your feelings from time to time.

Even so, you are friendly, and you can enjoy some pleasant exchanges. Others are cooperative, but you also function very well behind the scenes right now, perhaps feeling more comfortable this way. Easing down or sharing activities that help you regroup, renew, and relax may be better than an abrupt change now. Conversations and communications, in general, can be in strong focus. It’s a good day for solving problems that are mechanical or intellectual in nature. It’s fine for analyzing emotional issues, but perhaps only on the surface since the day doesn’t much favor deeper connections and understanding.
SagittariusPeople may not be able to touch deep matters with you today, dear Sagittarius, as you may be a little hesitant to dig down deeply or opening up about personal matters just for now. Sharing your ideas and opinions on broader issues is another story–you enjoy it now. Finances can be a topic today. The Moon heads into your solar eleventh house for a couple of days, and connecting with your happiness goals, plans, and dreams can be in sharper focus. Your desire to be involved is strong.

You can be filled with memories, or others and circumstances seem to be recalling the past. Even so, conversations often revolve around you or frequently turn to you today. Others are taking a special interest in you. You are a little more open about expressing your ideas, but someone else, while communicative and interested, could be holding something back.
