|ARIES: You can take pleasure from the hard work ongoing for a short while since you’re eager to achieve your goals. There’s a good balance between feelings and duty. You’ll come across as cool, calm, sensible and in control of one practical situation. Though it’s also a time to be surrounded by team mates, colleagues, companions, the more the merrier as far as you are concerned. If you are part of group energy then you get oodles of support and quite a few helpful hints.|
|TAURUS: You may find yourself involved in noisy confrontations with family members or close companions with angry comments flying through the air. At work it’ll be different since you’ll be centre of the group and who’s really making things work for everyone, so that’s important to focus in on. It’s very important to you that others appreciate and admire what you’re doing, but that means you have to go out of your way to please them. Being sensitive and sympathetic will be part of your aim.|
|GEMINI: You will notice that you want everything at home and in your emotional life to be totally wonderful, which could set you up for a minor let down. You’ve got a great urge to get away from ruts and routines, from tedious chores, boring people and fly a little bit higher. You want to broaden your horizons, however you can. Travel would suit you best but there are other ways to keep you interest engaged. You won’t settle easily to boring chores or routines.|
|CANCER: You will definitely be in a mood for anything that gets you away from boring chores and tedious routines. Though you will be secretive, playing your cards close to your chest. It’s emo-tionally more intense than usual, so watch you don’t magnify certain situations or comments into something bigger than they are. Try and roll with the flow a little bit. Don’t become possessive about property or hanging on sentimentally to memories from the past. Not clinging on too tightly really is important.|
|LEO: Nothing will distract you from the essentials. It may not be passionate or very exciting but you will accomplish a modest amount. The Moon at an easy angle to Saturn will mean you cope admirably with practical situations. You will want another half in whatever you are doing, at home or at work. It is very much a togetherness kind of feeling. But also a little bit insecure. You will give in for the sake of peace, quiet and support. Aim for togetherness.|
|VIRGO: You are determined to sweep the furniture and the family into shape but do beware a tendency to be a little too fierce or aggressive. Your emotions are rather tied up with your work and chores and indeed with your health just for a couple of days. If you’re feeling jittered and jangled emotionally, you have to watch that your body doesn’t sag a bit. Make sure you’re putting energy into eating well, resting, relaxing, exercising, doing all of those kinds of things.|
|LIBRA: Expect the unexpected and you won’t be disappointed. If there is a whiff of jealousy or control in the air you will be off, since you have no intention of treading anyone else’s line.

So you’ll let it all hang out in a way, and step happily into the spotlight.|
|SCORPIO: This is quite a good time to retreat off to have a bit of peace and quiet. You want privacy, to get away from the outside world. Self-protective and sensitive, you want to cling on to loved ones or familiar surroundings. Luckily Jupiter brings sweetness and light to Moon areas which are home, diet, family and the past. So you are likely to over indulge and expand as a result. It might be an idea in the peaceful moments to mull over old memories.|
|SAGITTARIUS: Feeling like taking responsibility you are ploughing ahead in good style. You will find more self discipline than usual, and want to work hard. This in turn should rub off onto workmates who will pitch in with more enthusiasm as well. You’re likely to be a little bit over-emotional about certain things, too close to whatever it is you’re talking about. Your heart is certainly in the right place, but your brain may be in the wrong gear. Slow down and pause for thought.|
|CAPRICORN: At points you may feel like a small volcano about to overflow. Try to avoid hurting sensitive feelings. Friends need nurturing and protecting not railroaded into over hasty action. What you really want are treats, luxuries, and presents. You will be very attached to the good things. It can make you a touch possessive, so you have to look more laid back than you will feel. To be happy you will need to have your money in order, and the budget balanced.|
|AQUARIUS: Your moods will be lively and unpredictable, and you will not sit still for long. You will be skipping around looking for entertaining conversations, wanting to swap new ideas, and general be off doing anything that is not routine. You need to belong, to be loved, cuddled and cosseted so look for reassuring companions who will give you a little more help and support than usual and be an anchor for you. Try to avoid overeating, and avoid overreacting to certain situations.|
|PISCES: Maybe you sense that companions are preoccupied at the moment. They are all tied up in what they are doing, and you want to just disappear into your own space to think things through. Just watch you are not too sugary sweet and sentimental. You could be untidy and rather careless. The Moon at a tricky angle to Jupiter for a brief while and will bring on an exceptionally lazy mood. But maybe you need to take some time off from your busy schedule.
