    Although edgier influences can leave you questioning an issue, a more positive and uplifting tie between lovely Venus and upbeat Jupiter, can add a warmer and more satisfying note to coming days. If anything, this blend of energies can be a tad indulgent, perhaps encouraging you to focus on enjoyment and fun, even if it does come at a price. However, you likely deserve this.

    The Moon in your opposite sign of Scorpio, can assist by breaking the ice regarding a potential difference of opinion. Cosmic forces suggest that if you have felt defensive, all this could change. Reaching out and opting for a heartfelt conversation can bring a soulful quality into the mix and can make a difference, especially if it encourages greater honesty and openness between you.

    If there is a hard way or an easy way to do something, then it can be tempting to choose the easier way. Plus, giving others the benefit of the doubt and being generous in your assessment of key issues, might lead to better outcomes. There are uplifting elements to the days ahead that might leave you feeling more optimistic, and because of this, you could get much more done.

    You may feel guilty for not putting others' needs ahead of your own, especially as sobering Saturn and potent Pluto in your sector of relating, can make others appear more demanding. If it seems easier to give in than stand up to those who appear controlling, then the cosmos urges you to be strong. Doing something nice for yourself can get things off to a positive start Cancer.

    Whatever else is on your plate, a pleasant aspect can see you inviting others over for an impromptu get-together. If you have had a lot to contend with, then some downtime with good friends and family can quickly restore your spirits. Equally, you could receive a request to join others, and this too can boost your mood and allow your charismatic qualities to shine out.

    Lunar ties to thoughtful Mercury and powerful Pluto, can make you aware of the balance of power in a social situation and how you might resolve an awkward issue. In fact, with nebulous Neptune involved in the mix, ignoring the fall-out from any disagreements and finding a way to continue the conversation, could allow space for healing and good feeling to be restored.

    You may feel in a more adventurous mood when it comes to ways to spend the day, and friends may play a big part in any plans. With Venus your guide planet in your social zone, angling towards generous Jupiter, you may be kind enough to help someone out so that they can join in as well. For the pleasure this brings to this person and to you too, it can be so worth it Libra.

    With the Moon in your sign making potent ties, leisure activities may take your mind off other matters and allow you a chance to step back. If you can put any issues to one side for a while and focus on doing something creative or enjoyable, then solutions may bubble up in their own time. In addition, sharing an uplifting compliment could empower a good friend or colleague Scorpio.

    Although there may be a lot of social activity ongoing, you might prefer to slip away somewhere quiet with one special person or a few close friends, to make the most of any leisure time. With delightful Venus angling towards jovial Jupiter in a secluded sector, you might also enjoy spiritual activities that allow you to know yourself better or to explore your latent potential.

    If it seems you are shouldering all the responsibility or taking on too many projects that you feel duty-bound to complete solo, then the present picture encourages you to think again. A very supportive aspect suggests that if you reach out and ask for help, you may be pleasantly surprised by the response. Others may be only too happy to come to your aid at this time Capricorn.

    The Sun's link to innovative Uranus in your home zone, hints at a new approach to wellness issues, which might include making changes on the domestic front. With the Sun in your lifestyle sector for a four week stay, you may feel a natural desire for a healthier way of eating and for regular exercise. There is no need to rush into this, as a gentle approach can work very well.

    If you have an outing planned, then it could turn out to be a delightful occasion, and an opportunity to indulge in those activities you truly enjoy. Any disciplined dietary considerations may be cast aside for a few hours as a positive aspect hints at great company and the opportunity for all involved to have a good time. And you might discover a place you will want to return to again.
