While the moon hovers in Leo for a few final hours this morning, you’ll be champing at the bit to get the day up and running. Before you proceed with the force of a Mack truck, sit down, breathe and strategize. Yes, it’s true that a high-maintenance person holds a golden ticket. But working with them won’t be worth the drain on your energy. The moon heads into Virgo at 10:10 AM EDT, bringing a two-and-a-half-day reminder of the importance of self-care. Walk barefoot on grass, roll out your yoga mat or check out the spring sales. There’s no need to complicate things now. When it comes to plans, less is more. 


The moon lingers in Leo and your private, sensitive fourth house until 10:10 AM EDT, which won’t make you feel eager to drop your mask. Do what you need to and follow your instincts. Rather than wandering down memory lane, be a good listener. Let someone else divulge their secrets, and save your stories for a bit later, when the moon sashays into your vivacious fifth house. People will hang your every word, and you’ll enjoy a captive audience. Over the next couple days, this glamorous placement will encourage you to treat the whole world like your runway. Twirl, Taurus!


There are emails to send, deadlines to meet, and tasks to complete. Although you’ll have the energy, you may lack the concentration while the moon winds down in Leo first thing today. Do your best, but try to put a few things on hold until after 10:10 AM EDT, when la luna shifts into efficient Virgo and your fourth house. Suffice it to say, you’ll be fine with a “keep it simple” approach for the next couple days. How can you streamline your duties to avoid scattering your energy? Find a quiet, private space to retreat to—if not for work, for when you’re clocked out. Nourish yourself with healthy food throughout the day to stabilize your moods.


The morning kicks off with the Leo moon in your serene second house, so do your very best to NOT rush into the day. Meditate to a 528 Hz healing frequency, jot down your thoughts or dream recollections, and prepare a nourishing breakfast. Pressing your reset button will foster productivity and help you achieve twice as much. Later in the morning (at 10:10 AM EDT), the moon buzzes into your third house. The next couple days will be highly interactive—possibly a tad overwhelming. Pack your favorite teas, crystals and other comforts that an empathic Cancer needs for clearing your field.


Rise and shine, Leo, and don’t delay! The moon is wrapping up its monthly tour through your sign, so you might hit your peak enthusiasm levels before you even have your first meeting of the day. Here’s hoping you woke up early or scheduled a breakfast meeting or sunrise yoga. And if not? You’ll still be incredibly productive after the moon heads into industrious Virgo (at 10:10 AM EDT), but you might have to back-burner some of the playful items on your list and deal with administrative duties that can no longer be avoided. 


Forgive yourself, Virgo. Until mid-morning (10:10 AM EDT), the moon is dawdling in your dreamy twelfth house, making it hard for you to find any sort of focus. It’s also possible that you’ve spread yourself so thin that three doppios won’t prevent you from wanting to snuggle up in a corner for a power snooze. But don’t worry! Energy picks up before you break for lunch, once the moon shifts into your sign for two and a half days. Divert yourself away from other people’s melodramas and get into something that benefits YOU, like an afternoon workout or some OOO field research.


Rise and grind? Not so fast, Libra! Excited as you are about spearheading a team effort, you run the risk of overcommitting yourself. Mid-morning (at 10:10 AM EDT), the moon downshifts from enthusiastic Leo into modest Virgo and your restful twelfth house. For the next two and a half days, you’ll be most effective at tying up loose ends. Give yourself space to process any feelings that arise, whether that’s relief, grief or a mix of both.


Incomplete work issues aren’t just going to magically fix themselves (sigh). While this is hardly anyone’s favorite thing to deal with, once resolved, that looming storm cloud will disappear. Summon all of your powers of leadership and handle it like a boss. By mid-morning (10:10 AM EDT), the moon shifts from your career sector to your sociable eleventh house for the next two and a half days. You might need to set an entertainment budget so you don’t blow through your rent money buying everyone drinks or shopping for spring “must-haves” that you already own two versions of.


With the moon spending a few morning hours in your house of adventure, philosophy and higher learning, you’ll be up for something fun and spontaneous. Hopefully you woke up early enough to witness a magical sunrise or to listen to an inspiring podcast while you’re getting dressed. Put your nose to the grindstone mid-morning (10:10 AM EDT), when the moon moves into your career zone. With focus, you’ll bring a goal to fruition. Instead of racing ahead over the next two and a half days, pause and regroup. If you plot your course of action, you’re bound to cross the finish line sooner.


No need to rush into the public eye today, Capricorn. With the moon luxuriating in your intimate eighth house until mid-morning, stay in bed as long as possible—even if you’re answering work emails in your PJs. Your enterprising side returns mid-morning (at 10:10 AM EDT) when the moon moves into Virgo and your venturesome ninth house for two and a half days. How can you tap into various networks to expand your reach? A dual-purpose trip can get you inspired about your career while giving you much needed time away. Start researching!


An intriguing collab is in the works, but before you make a single promise, ask yourself this: Am I adequately protecting my rights? If you’re not 100 percent certain, pump the brakes. (Always a good idea while Mercury is retrograde, as it is until April 25). Before you move further, consult an expert, like an I.P. lawyer or at the very least, a friend who has thrived in a similar arrangement. No matter how casual this feels now, if growth is one of your objectives, set a precedent of ultimate clarity asap.


Even the most on-the-ball Pisces out there could wake up feeling overwhelmed today. Is it time to relinquish complete control and ask for help? Think of all the people you’ve pulled out of a jam, then call in some favors. Colleagues and savvy friends will likely be happy to lend a hand. (And no, you’re NOT “burdening” them, okay?) Apart from sharing the heavy lifting, one of your mentors could introduce you to new streamlining methods. When the moon shimmies into your relationship sector mid-morning (at 10:10 AM EDT), partnering up for the win will be easier than ever. Make the most of this placement with a bold right swipe or a definitive gesture that shows your love.
