LeoThe day’s energies especially favor tapping into your intuition, dear Leo. The Moon moves into your home and family sector, encouraging you to slow down and center yourself. It’s a time of the lunar cycle for anchoring or nesting, and it’s very welcome even though you’ve been quite goal-focused these days.

Accepting and enjoying differences with important people in your life is key to this. Communications can bring pleasure or unexpected opportunities.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your privacy sector early today, dear Sagittarius, and behind-the-scenes or unassuming activities seem a bigger draw.

Today is useful for intuitive insights into health or recent work projects, as well as for conversations, which seem to flow beautifully. It’s a good time for seeking out new projects or topics that inspire you. Mental refreshment can do wonders for you. You might find that letting go of the pressure to come to a conclusion or decision improves everything, even your practical affairs, which can benefit from added imagination and intuition.

Assimilate rather than act for the best results now.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your social sector for a couple of days, dear Capricorn. A Mercury-Neptune aspect comes into play today, helping conversations and thoughts to flow well. Creative writing or artistic expression can flourish. Recreation, entertainment, hobbies, and art or music can figure strongly and help relax and inspire you. You are communicating with more style, color, or sensitivity today and tomorrow. There can be benefits to your business or projects through word of mouth, or good reviews provide a boost. You find it easier to let go of frustrations, and, with the pressure off, your thinking is more intuitive. Be supportive and open with others for the best results.
AquariusThe Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Aquarius, spending a couple of days turning your attention to goals and ambitions. It’s a time in the lunar cycle to consider your accomplishments and make plans for reaching your objectives.
