    Although you may be eager to get moving on key plans, the chance to be adventurous or pursue a new opportunity, may appeal. With Mercury angling towards expansive Jupiter, this can show itself as an urge to go on an adventure or book an impromptu trip. Experiencing the wild side of life may be good for you though, as you'll soon have a lot more to do and will need to get to it.

    Someone's bright idea could add a whole new dimension to a decorating plan or DIY opportunity. Should you listen though Taurus? It could seem tempting, but there is a chance that it could be a tad costly too. Don't allow this person to talk you into anything without checking the prices. Take a step back first, as you may be able to get the same effect at a cheaper rate.

    The focus on your domestic sector urges you to look after yourself on an emotional as well as a physical level. If you have been hard at work lately Gemini, a side of you could be craving some down time, and if you haven't had a chance to unwind, consider it. Over the coming weeks, schedule in activities that soothe or allow you to feel pampered and at peace with the world.

    There can be benefits to joining up with others to accomplish a key goal, as long as you choose the right people. With energizing Uranus in your social zone, an idea could develop a more universal appeal and reach more people if you connect with those whose ideals compliment your own. If the initial phase goes well, then it might soon be time to take it a stage further.
  • LEO

    If you are planning a social event or considering doing some entertaining, influences today and over coming days, can help make it a delightful affair. Your tendency towards generosity and to giving others something to remember won't go unnoticed, and you might have more than a few invites in return. Ready to make your money go further? You may now have a chance to do so.

    There is nothing like a dose of optimism to boost your spirits, and this could be exactly what you feel over the next day or so as you go about your day-to-day affairs. If you have felt that certain ideas or activities were beyond you, such thoughts could evaporate, and you may be moved to step up and have a go. The courage to make key changes can inspire you to go ahead.

    With feisty Mars in a secluded and psychological zone, you might feel uncomfortable about broaching an issue that is loaded with emotion. With the Red planet linking to asteroids Juno and Vesta, loyalties may be involved in the equation, and this might require even more care. But with your diplomatic touch you might find that you can accomplish more than you thought possible.

    With the Moon making a harsh angle to Pluto, you may have a block concerning a task or project that needs to be accomplished. While this is a temporary aspect, something about it could set up a wall of resistance. And the more important it is, the more you might feel it. Perhaps the only way to get ahead with this is to ignore mind chatter and just do it, then you'll feel so much better.

    If you experience more restlessness than usual, it may be because new adventures are calling. If you are offered the chance to go on a trip, then it can refresh you and do you the world of good. However, investing your energy in something that you feel quite passionate about could be equally exciting, and over coming weeks you may have more than one opportunity to do so.

    The presence of Mars in your sector of far horizons, can be a call to look beyond any frustrations and limitations you may have felt lately, to new ideas and opportunities to expand. With positive influences bringing the prospect of fewer delays and greater progress, this can be a good time to explore something that may have interested you for a while and see where it leads.

    Lunar ties to transformative Pluto, suggest you may not feel comfortable talking about a certain matter, especially if it is something very delicate. It could be that the issue involved is of great importance and something you feel should be handled with wisdom and compassion. Don't hold back completely though, as a proper discussion could help everyone more than you realize.

    Do you need to clear the air regarding a key issue? If so, it may be worth waiting a day or so until diplomatic Venus joins Mars in your sector of relating. Her presence can soften such conversations and smooth over difficulties. This isn't to say that you should bend the truth, but more that by being sensitive to the other person's issues, you'll navigate through this with ease.
