Aries: Artistic Aries may receive recognition or find they have loyal followers. You take pride in your creativity & achievements.

Taurus: You may be arranging house or pet sitting so you can travel or you are welcoming visitors to your home. Act on plans.

Gemini: Put creative strategies to increase business or financial security into motion. You have courage & chutzpah now.

Cancer: You & a mate or business partner must examine income & decide where to spend & how much to save. A workable budget.

Virgo: A day for a ceremony, ritual or clarification of your intentions for the future with an emphasis on what you truly desire.

Libra: Preparing a home for holiday entertaining is fun but can be overwhelming. Say yes to offers of help from friends & family.

Scorpio: You decide today is the day on something important concerning career, work or income. Act on ultimatum energy.

Sagittarius: "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" applies now. You won't lose your own values by tolerating others customs.

Capricorn: You commit to something in your heart or consciousness. Will power is at its peak - use it to start or end a habit.

Aquarius: Nobody is perfect & we are all a work in progress. Look at your own flaws before grumbling about those of others.

The moon in the fixed fire sign of creative, ardent and dramatic Leo forms a quincunx aspect to powerful Pluto in success driven Capricorn today, while Mercury in Sagittarius has just turned direct. While it may feel like the brakes are finally off and you can move ahead now, the nature of a quincunx energy pattern can be stressful since it is neither an entirely favorable or negative energy. It can be either/or. Your will or desire to do something or to have something could be strong but the manifestation of what you desire may require work and persistence. A Leo fire moon can be impulsive and wants things done as fast as possible - as in NOW - but Pluto in earthy Capricorn only offers endurance - not ease or rapid progress. Still, a mild semi-sextile between Mercury in optimistic Sagittarius and Pluto in Capricorn tells you it is worth making an effort to act, take a stand, be bold, persistent and goal oriented now. Mercury in Sagittarius also squares Neptune in Aquarius conjunct Chiron in Pisces, so don't feel disappointed if you don't meet your goals immediately or it appears that things are not as you wish them to be by the end of your day. Things may not be as they appear, you may not be able to see the whole picture or you could underestimate the true effect of your work now. Later this evening, when the Leo moon forms a semi-sextile to Mars in Virgo, you should feel satisfied knowing you have done your best, whether you have met your objective or not.
