GeminiThere can be some feelings of frustration as you could encounter delays and stresses, dear Gemini. Watch for a tendency for some to be envious or devious.

Aim to engage yourself in earthy, grounding activities. You don’t need to have a master plan to be productive today, so be patient. There is wisdom in a step-by-step approach to your ventures, as well as particular satisfaction in so doing.
CancerThe Moon heads into your sign for a couple of days, dear Cancer, and you can feel as if you’re starting fresh. Emotional energy is a little bit tense today, however, so aim to keep your wits about you. Avoid undue stress over differences of opinion. You could have difficulty sorting out what others expect from you and what you genuinely believe you can and should do. It would help if you found a middle ground. Avoid getting caught up in drama, if possible. Try instead to focus on what you feel is right. Your belief in yourself and your endeavors can take you far now.
LeoYour instincts tend to tell you to steer away from stressful or demanding situations today, dear Leo, and to get out of the crossfires. The Moon moves into the sign just behind yours, marking the end of a lunar cycle and the need to rest, relax, and wind down for a couple of days. Even so, there can be some tensions today as others don’t seem to be cooperative or open to your ideas, but this influence passes rather quickly. It’s due to a minor Sun-Pluto challenge that stirs up fears of not reaching your goals and a sense that we need to strategize to get what we want. Work and stresses of daily life can tug at you. Aim to watch and listen before making big moves. Getting some time to yourself would be most helpful.
VirgoThe Moon heads into your solar eleventh house for a couple of days, dear Virgo, and friendships or connecting with your happiness goals and dreams can be in sharper focus. Anything that relieves stress will be appropriate. However, there can be some power struggles with a lover, children, or friends, or nervous tension regarding same, due to a Sun-Pluto minor challenge. Dramatic moves, even if tempting, are liable to cause undue stress, or they can quickly complicate your life right now. Filter out as much drama as possible, and try to remain calm and objective.
LibraYour leadership qualities are in good form today, dear Libra. You’re in the frame of mind that fairly demands you accomplish something worthwhile with the Moon’s move to the top of your chart. However, there can be some problems and possibly underhanded or deceptive behavior with today’s minor Sun-Pluto challenge. Stress can build as you become aware of responsibilities that might at first appear a little too much for you to handle. You’ll likely benefit from cutting out the things distracting you from getting where you want to go. Watch for power struggles that lead nowhere. Avoid getting entangled in matters of ego for best results. Focus on what you need to do and feel you should do, and don’t take on any more than that.
ScorpioThe Moon enters Cancer and your solar ninth house today, dear Scorpio, which is a generally happy place for the Moon to transit. Even so, a Sun-Pluto minor challenge can dial up the demands and your stress levels in spots. The key now is to avoid getting caught up in too many projects and avoid worrying about too many things at once. It might help to build a list of priorities or take a step-by-step approach to deal with your to-do list, rather than a scattered one that leaves you feeling as if nothing truly was accomplished. There can be some feelings of being slighted or overlooked. Know that this may not be the best time for pushing ahead with plans. Also, watch for a tendency to overindulge as an attempt to tame inner discontent.
SagittariusWith the Moon’s move into your solar eighth house for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, you’re craving more intimacy or depth in your experiences. You’re making meaningful connections that help you solve problems and uncover motivations. However, transits today are not entirely free-flowing, nor are they conducive to pushing ahead with personal plans. Take your time with new initiatives and avoid depending on someone to help you out, just for the time being. Issues of power, control, and responsibility can crop up, or money worries cloud your thinking. Stay as centered as possible now so that you can channel your energy into handling the most critical issues in your life.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your partnership sector for a couple of days, dear Capricorn, and you might pair up to come up with a great idea. Your interests grow. With a minor Sun-Pluto challenge today, however, you could feel undermined. Avoid negative thinking or expectations as much as possible, as it can set you up for a fall. While you should do your best to avoid getting caught up in emotional games, try not to use manipulative tactics to get what you want. A conservative approach in business is probably best for now.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your sector of work and service for a couple of days, dear Aquarius. You want to be productive or to bring more order into your life. A comfortable pace suits you today, but a Sun-Pluto minor challenge can introduce pressure. There can be tensions in interpersonal relationships if you or others focus on the negative, which is a tendency now. Distractions are plenty, and the key will be to prioritize and adopt a mature approach, avoiding the sometimes strong pull towards game playing and tit-for-tat argument. Aim to focus on more
practical concerns for best results.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your self-expressive solar fifth house for a couple of days, dear Pisces. Any activity that draws out your inner child can be satisfying. However, there can be some tension with others, or you could find that responsibilities weigh heavier than usual. Distractions and worries or fireworks with friends or lovers can interrupt the flow. There’s a tendency to dial up the drama today and tomorrow, and it’s a good idea to aim to stay grounded and objective amidst the confusion. Avoid getting caught up in a tug of war when your energy could be better utilized elsewhere.
