Staying focused on your needs and the other person’s intentions helps keep discussions rewarding.

This conviction and insight help you draw up plans and refine or define long-term goals. It’s also a good time to redefine misunderstandings and come to agreements. There can be vivid memories and important discoveries. A recent problem may be resolved now, or you might gain new understanding of a personal matter that helps push things forward. Your home life may be especially busy or lively now. There can be empowering moments on mental levels today.
CancerMental energy is powerful today, dear Cancer. You’re motivated to let go of outdated conditions or habits related to learning, communicating, and relating. This can be a good time to have conversations dealing with the nature of the problems, not the details. You’re distinguishing yourself from others regarding your commitment. As well, getting in touch with your true ambitions boosts clarity concerning your own goals. News can arrive that steers you in a new direction or leaves you feeling you have an advantage. Clearing out the psychic junk helps put you in charge of making changes.
LeoYou can feel you’re making some satisfying progress on mental levels today, dear Leo. Your mind is especially robust, and you can come up with some satisfying conclusions or strategies now. A recent problem may well resolve to your satisfaction. Money or work matters are rewarding, and ideas for improvements are coming to you. Planning and using strategy are in focus. The Moon moves into your solar eighth house, and investigating, digging deep, and looking at the layers of your life comes more naturally. You can get somewhere with a project, business goal, or a close relationship. Your inclination to listen, observe, and learn benefits you today.
VirgoA strengthening aspect between Mercury in your sign and perceptive Pluto today can bring on a resolution to a problem, dear Virgo, or help a relationship bond. It can be an unusually intuitive day for increased understanding of a loved one or your own affections, needs, and drives. Other relationships in your life can benefit from a mutually beneficial agreement or compromise. Communicating effectively is in focus. People are drawn to your insight, and you have a way of seeing what is and isn’t worth your time. It’s a good day for creative inspiration, but perhaps more so now, the willingness to get involved.
LibraToday is powerful for knowing your capabilities and gaining others’ appreciation for your work ethic, dear Libra. You’re getting a leg up with recent problem areas, and arriving at a conclusion about a dilemma can figure strongly, coming as a relief. Attempts to resolve tricky issues through conversation can be pretty successful. Researching a topic more deeply can be satisfying and valuable. The Moon moves into your solar sixth house, and sorting, organizing, and tidying come more naturally. Your inclination to take care of business and iron out problems benefits you.
ScorpioYou’re learning a lot about your ambitions and drives, dear Scorpio, and through this lens, you’re in a great position to create or refine long-term goals. Others are particularly drawn to your point of view, beliefs, and ideas–they see you as an advice/answer person. It’s also a strong day for sorting out problems–you get answers or observe what you need to draw firm conclusions. Friends, connections, or networks can inspire you. The Moon moves into your sector of joy, nudging you to make time to enjoy and express yourself. It’s a good time of the month for heartfelt pursuits.
SagittariusYour words carry power, even more so today, dear Sagittarius. This is due to Mercury’s transit of your public house, but it’s also because you’re stating your words deliberately and with intention as Mercury harmonizes with Pluto. Insights are powerful and might also revolve around business, money, work, and establishing yourself. A money matter might finally resolve now. Making plans for finances, business deals, and problem-solving are in favor, and resolution may come to problems that were difficult to understand during Mercury’s recent retrograde period. Insight into your ambitions and drives can figure strongly.
CapricornYou can arrive at excellent strategies or programs for improving your outlook and belief in yourself today, dear Capricorn. It’s a time you may want to proclaim your truth with resolve and respect. There is strong energy for all things mental and creative. Positive news may be forthcoming. Your voice is stronger than usual, and others may recognize you as an authority on a subject. Recent problems or predicaments, particularly those that popped up during Mercury’s retrograde cycle might now find a resolution. The Moon moves into your sector of home and heart, suggesting some need to pause your schedule and pay more attention to your personal life.
AquariusYou’re feeling more directed and goal-oriented today, dear Aquarius. You’re inclined to take your time when dealing with answers to potent emotional questions. It’s best to run things through checklists and respond fully when you’re ready. Still, decisions come a little more easily today than has been the case recently. You might gain an advantage or feel more empowered about a home situation or intimate relationship. Striking up a conversation about a private or personal matter could very well lead to a solution since you’re more mentally present. The Moon heads into your resources sector, and steadiness or predictability is more attractive for a couple of days.
PiscesIt can be a powerful time for bonding with a partner or friend, especially through conversation or a feeling of understanding, dear Pisces. Your uniqueness as a companion shines through. It’s also a good time for your creative or romantic world. A Mercury-Pluto trine energizes matters of the mind–you’re getting a real buzz from incoming news or sharing ideas today. Increased clarity can come in or about a partnership, or great ideas come from your interactions with a partner or trusted friend. Negotiations can be very successful and beneficial, and a recent problem can wrap up.
