    With Mercury angled towards Mars and Uranus, you may find yourself wondering whether to mull over a certain decision or to do what feels best right away. Even though the Taurus Moon continues to encourage caution you could still find it difficult to be patient. If you're to make the best of your current situation, you might find that a measured approach is best.

    There are times when we get a sixth sense about something, but have no way of proving what we know. This may be your situation over the next day or so, and could be the reason you find yourself in conflict with someone. Perhaps the only way to handle this is to reserve judgement and wait until you know for sure. The chances are you will be ready eventually.

    Your mind seems to be keyed to take on board new information and to revel in ideas that have exciting implications. However, much as you might like to, you could find it difficult to apply them to your everyday routines. Even so, you may find that it's worth persisting as doing so could revolutionise your life, perhaps by saving time or making certain tasks easier.

    With the Moon in Taurus making some lively angles you may find the coming days to be productive as long as you can handle others' points of view. In particular, a tie to Mars suggests someone may have strong feelings that you'll need to tackle in as diplomatic a way as possible. Jupiter's angle also encourages you not to take offence, but to stay open minded.

    The present set-up suggests making allowances for those who may not think or act as fast as you. Moreover, Mercury's tie with Uranus reveals that your mind could be working at top-speed, so most people can appear to lag behind you, proving frustrating at times. When it comes to any priority projects, it may be wise to ponder your choices a little longer though, Leo.

    While a focus on your psychological sector suggests you may prefer to work behind the scenes, a Moon Jupiter connection hints that getting out and about could broaden your horizons and may be to your advantage. In your travels, which could be in your area or further afield, an encounter might be the catalyst to spur you into action and in doing so encourage thoughts of change.

    Even if certain aspects give life the appearance of being unsettled, the steady focus of the Taurus Moon can help you take it all in your stride. Although others may be eager for you to be somewhere, do something or make a decision, you don't have to pander to them. The day may be more enjoyable if you ignore their pleas and do things in your own good time.

    With the focus still firmly on your sector of goals and ambitions, you may find that you make most progress when your plans involve your natural talents, and as far as possible your purpose in life. If you're registering that your present situation seems far from ideal, then the coming New Moon, in just under a week, can be a call to initiate some key changes.

    As Mercury in your sector of beliefs moves to align with Mars in the most private of areas, you may encounter something that encourages you to be more sensitive to and more aware of others' feelings. Although your initial reaction may be to speak your mind, equally there will be so much to be gained by listening carefully too. It could alter your outlook a lot.

    The Moon's opposition to Mars could leave you wondering whether certain friends have your best interests at heart. In fact, such worries may have shown up at various points over this year with Mars spending time in Scorpio. But it is now in the last degrees of this sign and will move into the easier going Sagittarius in a few days, which could change the picture a lot.

    Tempting though it may be to get as much done as fast as possible, you may find the day easier if you relax your pace. While the Mercury Uranus hook up can urge you to speed up, the Taurus Moon suggests you may feel more grounded and get more done if you purposely slow down. In fact, you could catch an opportunity that you might have missed by rushing.

    Conversations and communications with others may have an electric quality that could prove very stimulating. Mind you, you could find some interactions leave you buzzing with excitement, making it hard to settle into your routine. If so, the Moon's link with the planet of talk and thought suggests gentle exercise, or some stretches might have a soothing effect too.
