You may sense that blocks are lifting today, dear Leo, and at the very least, there is a spirit of progress around you. People seem to be willing to move past problems. There can be a happy intimate connection, a financial advance, or a workplace improvement that puts you in a fine mood now. People on the job may be noticing and appreciating you for your unique input. Problems might be solved, not necessarily through great effort or focus, but through a general willingness to let things go and put things behind you.
Freedom from an obligation can figure strongly, and it feels great, or the discovery of a new way to approach a nagging problem is exciting. Interactions with others and the ideas that result can be exciting and inspiring today, dear Virgo. One-on-one relationships may provide motivating and stimulating experiences as Venus in your partnership sector harmonizes with progressive Uranus.
This is about embracing new ways of doing things, and especially new ways to relate and interact with others. Relationships benefit from an open, accepting approach to desires and needs. Cooperation is natural now. The Moon moves from your domestic sector into your creativity zone today, further reinforcing the benefits of a more friendly, open approach to your world.
Positive vibes are generated as you pursue your daily routines or work, and quite possibly, social opportunities can result. You may discover alternative methods regarding health, nutrition, or fitness that are exciting indeed. Doing things just a little differently can open doors, or at the very least, improve your mood and concentration. Others are unlikely to turn you, or your plans, down today, dear Scorpio, as Venus and Uranus harmonize in your relationship sectors.
There is a cheerful spirit of growth to the day, and it becomes you. You can turn around most any problem or boring situation with a fresh and fun approach. This can be a day of a surprise invite for some.
In some manner in your relationships, you can symbolically break the chains that have bound you to past, restrictive behaviors. Reach out and connect today.
An open and forthcoming approach with others can be most pleasant and beneficial today, dear Sagittarius, and this may be especially the case with family or people with whom you live or share close quarters. Your thinking is forward-looking and confident, and you can approach domestic matters and routines or work in a new and improved way.
Alternative methods or approaches to health and wellness deserve a second look, too. On the home front, you can be in the mood to change things up. A Venus-Uranus harmonious aspect adds a pleasant element of surprise and perhaps a bit of genius to your interactions. Family, home, and work matters can move forward pleasantly, perhaps with a breakthrough of sorts, particularly if you are open to new ideas for improving your situation. Mind you, Mercury is still retrograde until tomorrow, and there can be a hump to get over, but things are looking up.
This is a potentially pleasant and perhaps even breakthrough time for romantic matters, learning, sharing, and connecting in general. You feel freer and more spontaneous than usual. There can be interesting things to learn through a sibling, classmate, or friend, or the inspiration comes for a topic of interest. Updated technology might open up a new channel of communication for you, or you may connect with a special friend.
News from a love interest could be pleasantly unexpected. This can be a pleasant day for home improvement or the discovery of new interests, dear Aquarius, or perhaps the reawakening of a past interest that you now have the time or tools to explore. With openness to new ways of doing the routine, you can have some fun and make progress today. Mercury stations tomorrow, and the shift requires some sensitivity, but things are certainly looking up.
Venus is newly in your sign, dear Pisces, and is in harmony with Uranus today, boosting your popularity and your mood. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests can work well for you now, although it should be said that Mercury is about to turn direct and its shift today and tomorrow requires some sensitivity. There can be minor social blunders or mild misunderstandings to sort through, but overall energies with you now feel hopeful and progressive.

This is far less than Jupiter outwards, but more than Venus and Mars. Mercury retrograde brings communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items. You should avail the opportunity for growth of your profession as you may get the support of your higher authorities Rahu is the material world, Ketu is the spiritual world. Otherwise with astrology you will only be getting at best less than half the answer.
Hurt feelings are opportunities for healing. Now is the time for building bridges, not burning them.
This is a good time for experimenting and improvising, as well as trying on new ways of expressing ourselves and relating. Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
Stable and enduring, strong values, unyielding, earthy, acquisitive, strong desires. Can be stuck, stubborn, overly possessive, self-indulgent. Disciplined, responsible, reliable, industrious, conscientious, practical, achieving. Can be pessimistic, overly conventional, rigid, materialistic, callous. Compassionate, sensitive, self-sacrificing, gentle, intuitive. Can be escapist, impractical, hyper- sensitive, gullible.
Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. We are especially in touch with the physical world. We can be cautious, practical, and possibly unimaginative.
We are deliberate and can pace ourselves well. We need hands-on experience and are not impressed with theory as much as we are with results. Routines are tolerable and comforting. We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative. Sharing our knowledge with the world is a major motivation at this stage. We believe we have gained much knowledge and wisdom through our experiences, and want to ensure others have the benefit as well. Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours so that if an aspect involving the Moon is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect be exact in about 10 hours.
If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today.
The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a lifetime. There can be a conflict between our intentions and our emotions now.
We can feel tense and unsatisfied until we take care of problems. We can be unsure about whether we want support or to do things independently. We are cooperative, obliging, and kind under this influence.
