You’re likely to be more creative and at ease when expressing yourself. Conversations that revolve around personal interests and causes can be in focus. Sharing your philosophy with someone can be especially engaging. You’re likely to enjoy chatting with others and exchanging ideas or talking through problems.

Your interests might stray quite a bit from your usual ones. A friendly message can arrive, or a conversation can take place that puts you right at ease.
TaurusIt can be motivating to keep a goal in mind today, dear Taurus, as you’re looking for some order and direction. There can be situations that encourage you to mature, grow, and improve. Giving a matter further thought may lead you to discover something that was previously lost. As well, there can be a charming conversation or discovery of an intimate or personal nature that gets you thinking. You may not know the full story on a matter yet, but you’re optimistic. Today and the next couple of days, transits can bring a message from someone from your past or another clue to look behind you before moving forward. You’re also in a good position to take a second look at a project or job.
GeminiYou can feel quite confident and comfortable in your skin today, dear Gemini. As you radiate good energy, you attract positive attention and feedback. You seem to be at greater ease expressing both your ideas and feelings. Engaging experiences and a break from the routine or a change of scenery would be most welcome as the Moon transits your solar ninth house all day. Today and coming days, you may come to an understanding with a significant person in your life due to a sense of shared values or respect for differing ones. There is powerful energy for finding creative ways to satisfy various needs. Today’s energies encourage acceptance, and it feels great. Keeping in mind that there is probably more to the story than what meets the eye now, you can nevertheless enjoy the smooth flow of optimism and cooperation now. You are working things in such a way that you’re coming out ahead.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, dear Cancer, and your need to observe and reflect is in the spotlight. You’re feeling more comfortable with your inner world. You gravitate to situations, people, and projects that engage your emotions. Seeing a new layer of a problem, perhaps even remembering a past matter differently, can be most revealing as the Moon harmonizes with retrograde Mercury. You might arrive at a beautiful place of understanding of your past or your deeper feelings. You’ll find others especially amenable in most ways today and in the next couple of days, and health or work matters particularly pleasing. You can relax sufficiently to let your guard down. You’re in an excellent position to beautify your surroundings or boost your relationships. Restoring balance to working relationships can be in focus. Memories are powerful, and you may remember something that helps you rewrite a troubling story.
LeoThe desire to soak up ideas and inspiration from others is strong today, dear Leo, and pleasant opportunities seem to emerge through friends. The fluidity between your feelings and mind helps you express yourself better, and it’s easier to iron out differences with others, even with Mercury still retrograde for four more days. It’s important to pay more attention to gestures than specific words chosen to express ourselves. Energies favor pleasant conversations and cooperation. There can be a nice feeling of devotion to a person, fantasy, or the idea of love, and this can inspire creative works or ideas. You’re inclined to analyze or discuss past relationships now.
VirgoTaking care of details and attention to practical priorities or your health seem to satisfy you most today, dear Virgo. You find it hard to ignore taking care of business! Organizing your life in small but essential ways is a strong draw now. You might talk comfortably and naturally about matters that previously were hidden or too private to discuss. Or, you’re giving particular thought to issues that you avoided in the past with the Moon’s harmony with retrograde Mercury. Divine energy is building for warm, affectionate conversations and overtures. You tend to have especially positive faith in the people you care about and domestic matters in general. You are more idealistic than usual, and fortunately, people around you tend to cooperate.
LibraWith the Moon in your sector of joy today, dear Libra, it’s a time of the lunar month to enjoy and appreciate your leisure time. You’re more emotionally and mentally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. It’s best to explore your thoughts and desires without pressure now for best results. Giving certain opinions more thought can be beneficial as you view a matter differently during this retrograde Mercury cycle that will last another four days. With Mercury in your sign, it’s important to take extra time to digest events and ideas in the coming few days. Fortunately, while mistakes and miscommunications are possible, you’re finding it easy to rise above problems and enjoy yourself in spite of them. Interactions tend to be light and informative. A warm communication might occur that boosts your spirits and makes you feel understood.
ScorpioYou can find yourself in need of more quiet or familiarity today, dear Scorpio. Domestic and personal matters take center stage. Resolving differences comes naturally through conversation or giving further thought to issues that may have stumped you recently. You’re certainly processing your feelings and recent events, and this is an important undertaking. A slower pace works out well for you, as it helps you center yourself. Memories or dreams can be motivating and can give you new insight into a situation. There can be surprising support or memories and intuition that boost your business or money situation. Your ideas can be inspired, but it’s better not to begin a brand new project today with Mercury still retrograde for another four days–it will likely get off to a slow start, or you may reconsider it later on. Even so, with mindfulness in your communications and directions, you can find much to enjoy and creative ways to satisfy a desire for safety and comfort. There is good energy for making, spending, or sorting out money, taking care of valuables, as well as for a feeling of abundance.
SagittariusYour curiosity draws you to new experiences today, dear Sagittarius. You benefit from others’ input and help. You might do better with projects that are already in progress rather than pressuring yourself to take on more. A change of pace can be refreshing on an emotional level today. Today and in the next couple of days, it’s possible that you come to peace with someone or a situation, and by extension, with yourself. Energies are good for connecting with others, but because Mercury remains retrograde for another four days, it can be a little tricky in some areas. More specifically, you may want to watch for speaking about matters of the heart without your heart entirely in the equation. Still, it’s a fine time to explore and share ideas.
CapricornYou may want to make or build something today, dear Capricorn, rather than pioneer or innovate. The Moon spends the day in your solar second house, harmonizing with Venus and Mercury. Your physical and comfort needs are in the spotlight. You’re in good shape for talking readily about health, work, and other practical matters. Giving these matters particular thought can be in focus. Today and the next couple of days can have a generous share of feel-good moments. Mercury’s retrograde continues for another four days, and you may want to be mindful of what and how you communicate. Otherwise, there is a subtle sense that you’re getting over a hump and possibly understanding a career matter better as something relevant from the past re-emerges. Conversations tend to steer towards the past, but you’re inclined to see these matters with more warmth and understanding.
AquariusYou seek channels for expressing yourself today, dear Aquarius, and it’s a time for finding your joy. Today is strong for connecting with people or projects you love. Conversations are inspiring. You can feel a strong need for self-nurturing, which you shouldn’t dismiss, with the Moon’s transit of your sign all day. Still, your dreaming world is active, and your ideas are especially bright and creative. You’re more inclined to see opportunities that you overlooked in the past. Conversations about the past can be meandering but valuable, perhaps shedding some new light on a situation. If you’re looking for clear facts or discussions, though, you won’t be in luck just yet with four more days of Mercury’s retrograde. However, as you pay close attention to the intentions of the messages you’re receiving, you’ll find people are cooperative. Avoid premature decisions, but enjoy the opportunities, as you’re likely to get quite close to a friend or associate.
PiscesToday’s Moon encourages you to take more time to yourself or space to process, digest, and wind down, dear Pisces. Pausing your busy schedule is most appropriate if you can manage it. Even so, others tend to support your ideas, and conversations with loved ones can be constructive. You’re inclined to go low-profile for now, but problem-solving can be natural. There is friendly energy with you for talking things through with loved ones, even if the focus is on the past or problem areas. Today and in the next few days, it’s wise to give in to the idea that you won’t get the whole picture and resolve to enjoy yourself despite this. Matters will reveal themselves to you soon, and you don’t have to push anything, and this can be a genuine relief. Dig deep, research, and keep an open mind, saving your conclusions for later. Discoveries can be breakthrough, even if you don’t know all the answers yet.
