Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

It's challenging to motivate yourself now, as you might believe that you have been working so hard recently that you deserve a break. Unfortunately, your emotions are running all over the place, further distracting you from your responsibilities. Rather than worrying about what you should have accomplished earlier, just get started on being productive today.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)

There's no reason to struggle to hide your emotions today, even if you're feeling sullen or withdrawn. Others may take it upon themselves to lift your spirits if they sense that you're emotionally retreating. Unfortunately, someone's generosity might arrive with its own baggage attached. You may be happier working alone now to avoid unnecessary entanglements, however subtle they may seem. Let everyone know you appreciate their concern, but you need to figure this one out on your own.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 22)

You're not the miserly type, but you might have a sudden attack of stinginess today when you realise how much money has been slipping through your fingers. However, the best way to increase your net worth now is not by earning more. You must attack this problem from the other side of the fence by saving what you already have. A practical plan will pay off, but it could take a while before you can count the tangible results.

Cancer (Jun23 - Jul 23)

Your possessiveness may stand between you and relationship satisfaction now because dependence is very different from love. Instead of making yourself indispensable, nurture a family member or a loved one without requiring them to lean on you even more. You can quickly improve your day by changing your attitude so you are comfortable with a higher level of detachment. Giving yourself some of that tender loving care is good for your soul.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)

Instead of trying to get most of your work done in the morning in order to have time for a more relaxing evening, consider turning your calendar upside down if you can. Taking it easy early in the day increases your energy and puts you in a better frame of mind for what you have to do later when the Moon returns to your sign. Once you find your optimal pace, don't let any obstacles discourage you; your dogged persistence will produce positive results.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Be prepared to set your regular responsibilities aside for a while if you are asked to come to the aid of a friend today. Thankfully, even in the midst of a minor crisis, the pace of events is slower now, giving you ample time to accomplish more than you expect. Don't waste your energy questioning what may or may not be possible. Move through your insecurities or fears quickly so you can jump right in and help. Your kindness will not go unnoticed.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Your focus is on your career today, but others might still think that you are more ambivalent than you actually feel. Meanwhile, you're executing a well-considered strategy now, which could even include temporarily downplaying your role. This clever tactic allows you to build momentum while remaining out of the watchful eyes of others. But this can be a tricky dance because if you do it too well it may be a challenge to be seen once you are ready.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Sometimes it's easier for you to swing into action once your emotions have kicked into gear. Now, however, you continue to be laid back, enjoying the fruits of the watery Cancer Moon for much of the day. Nevertheless, don't let comfortable patterns or plain laziness prevent you from taking initiative. Even if you're slow to start today, make an extra effort to be as productive as possible.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

You may lose confidence in yourself if you believe others are undermining your efforts. Interpersonal dynamics are complicated now, making it tough to get to the bottom of the situation. Trusting your intuition is wise today, but trying to prove that someone is working against you can be quite difficult. There's no reason to waste energy substantiating facts when you already know the most sensible path to follow.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)

You have recently been surrounded by overly sensitive people and the underlying tension might still take a few more days to settle down. Others will probably be more forthcoming about their true feelings later in the day once the Moon enters expressive Leo, but emotional disclosure won't necessarily solve anything yet. For now, the best thing you can do is listen and wait; the answers will arrive on their own timetable.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)

Although you often enjoy working with others, you really don't want them too close because emotionality on the job makes you uncomfortable. Remember that processing your own need for intellectual detachment can teach you lessons about yourself now. Ironically, observing your changing moods helps you stay more open to the ideas of your co-workers.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Making use of your creativity at work would be a dream come true, but if you're stuck in a more mundane job now, put your self-expression in motion later on when you get home. However, it may be tough to recapture your earlier buzz. If so, don't fret about it; instead of trying to impress anyone with what you can do, just begin a project that makes you happy.
