The Gemini Moon makes a supportive trine to mental Mercury today. This could prove a very busy time, filled with errands, phone calls and paperwork. Fortunately, a surge of energy will accompany this transit, making it easy to complete tasks in record time. We can be marvelously productive.
The Moon also forms another trine to assertive Mars. When resolving problems, it’s best to take the direct approach. We should be forthright about our need for help and forbearance. Officials will be more likely to lend assistance if we don’t waste their time. Beating around the bush will just provoke their impatience.
Being able to follow directions could result in a raise, promotion or high-profile job. Be painstaking when filling out paperwork and submitting work samples.
There is no major Lunar Phase this week.
The Moon in Gemini forms a square to compassionate Neptune today. We need to be wary of sob stories. People have a tendency to exaggerate their problems, hoping for leniency they don’t really deserve. Enforcing rules will discourage lazy and irresponsible behavior.
Fortunately, the Moon makes a positive sextile to inventive Uranus. With a little inventive scurrying, we can make up for any shortfalls that occur. Cutting corners may be necessary, but it’s better than giving up. It’s one of those times when we have to do the best we can with what we have. Given the circumstances, nobody will dare complain.
Jupiter resumes its direct motion in Cancer today. We have an opportunity to strengthen our family ties. Spending quality time with our nearest and dearest may be uplifting. Building a substitute family comprised of sympathetic friends, neighbors and colleagues is a welcome alternative for anyone who is estranged from their kin. The important thing is to surround ourselves with people who can provide unconditional love and support.
Real estate matters are also favored. This is a great time to buy and sell property. Home improvements can greatly improve the value of any given property. Beautiful furnishings and quality appliances may also prove good investments.
Trendy Venus moves into offbeat Aquarius today. This is a great time to express unique ideas about our personal style. Instead of trying to fit in with the crowd, we can gain distinction. When in doubt, obey impulses about color, shape and texture. Taking a new approach could win fame and acclaim.
Putting a unique spin on traditional forms may be liberating. Taking a futuristic approach to products and services could pay off handsomely. This is also a wonderful time to socialize. Friends have a way of making even the most troubling problems seem relatively minor. Social pursuits should trump work on this magical day.
The Aries Moon faces off with combative Mars today. Remaining diplomatic is no longer an option. It’s time to have a direct confrontation with people who are creating discord. We’ve all been walking on eggshells lately, hoping a mounting problem will go away. It will be impossible to ignore the increasing tension now these planets are opposing each other.
Fortunately, the Moon slips into laid-back Taurus causing the tension to ease. A harmonious sextile to compassionate Neptune makes it possible for everyone to kiss and make up. Even sworn enemies will be able to cut each other a little slack.
The willful Sun forms a supportive sextile to transformative Pluto today. A tremendous surge of willpower will be available to everyone. This is a great time to take on a challenge that requires focus and determination. Losing weight, breaking a bad habit and acquiring a valuable skill are all good ways to utilize this positive energy.
This is also a good time to develop our natural creative talent. Practice makes perfect. Making more time for drawing, writing, playing music or crafting will pay off handsomely. Let this magical day serve as a springboard to future artistic success.
Stern Saturn moves retrograde in sultry Scorpio today. It’s time to re-examine some of the big changes we’ve experienced over the past few months.

If you’re a Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, these themes have had an especially profound impact on your life. Now the dust is settling and we all have an opportunity to adjust to these dramatic changes.
Dynamic Mars goes retrograde in cooperative Libra today. We need to reconsider how we conduct our relationships, both personal and professional. Instead of trying to fix problems for our nearest and dearest, it may be better to stay quiet and listen.
Avoid buying anything mechanical at this time. Mars rules machinery and when it isn’t working at full power, unexpected breakdowns can occur. If it’s absolutely crucial to buy a car or gadget, have it insured.
Structured Saturn moves retrograde in resourceful Scorpio. Revising budgets, strengthening foundations and setting new boundaries are all possibilities. Old, outmoded rules may be challenged and overhauled.
