Still, you are also thinking in progressive, forward-looking terms, and this is especially helpful to you now. You’re not afraid to draw on your intuition as you focus on your duties or practical affairs. You are in no way afraid of controversy as a rule, but today you wisely work around it, as you do all other distractions.

You seek freedom in your communications, and you enjoy sharing your ideas with others, although you tend to go your own way no matter the feedback. You possess a stronger than usual sense for what will work and thrive, so pay attention to new ideas that come to you now and in the coming days, since they can be very worth your while. This Moon transit emphasizes your need for some non-routine stimulation. Life shouldn’t become too predictable now for the best results. New or improved avenues for creativity can open up. You can also be quite drawn to healing techniques and self-improvement.
AquariusToday’s good for accessing your inner wisdom and putting your powers of observation to work, dear Aquarius. The Moon in your intimacy sector stimulates your need to look for the layers of situations and people rather than taking things at face value. Its harmony with Uranus gives you a sense that you’re making progress, and there can be a sense of an emotional release or relief from a burden. You can be excited about making changes in your home or with family. Thinking in terms of innovation, new technologies and methods, and upgrades can be in focus and of benefit now. Letting go of old family conditioning or unhealthy ties to the past are themes. You are opening up to new methods and ideas while at the same time honoring the tried and true, and this suits you just fine right now.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your partnership sector today, dear Pisces. You gravitate towards activities that feed your desire to feel connected to the world around you today.

It’s a great day for getting to know someone better through conversation or for learning another side of a story. There is strong energy with you for learning and work on improving a system or project in your life. Don’t be discouraged if you find yourself moody on a matter over the coming days, as ups and downs are par for the course, and they may end up leading to a better final result.
