Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “With the Sun in Virgo forging an upbeat alliance with prudent Saturn this can be a day for work and generally getting things done. And even if there is a task we don’t particularly enjoy we’ll likely just get on and finish it, which is a reason to be happy.”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explains the effects of Mercury in Libra inconjunct Neptune retrograde in Pisces. Gilchrist writes: “Mercury/Neptune demands an adjustment between detached and socially ‘correct’ communication versus pure fantasy. An imbalance can lead to mixed messages (was that flirtatious or innocent) and social anxiety (am I saying the right thing).” She adds: “Make room for what’s undefined while keeping your eye on what’s actually being said…don’t assume you have all the facts.”

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “The Moon harmonizes with Venus this Friday, it’s a sweet combination…A beautiful day for all types of love.” She adds: “The Moon harmonizes with Mercury, so it’s the perfect day for talks about romance, moving in together or making plans to start a family.
