The Moon in the friendly Aquarius today, can bring a more airy feel to proceedings and especially when she forges a bright and uplifting angle to Mercury. However she then does go on to go face to face with Jupiter, and if you have a sweet tooth, or love an indulgence or two, this could increase the temptation!
Despite this, Mercury does continue to be under the spell of Neptune, so if you find yourself in a particularly escapist frame of mind, watch over indulgence because our bodies will be less able to digest rich, calorific or sweetened foods and drinks.
With Venus also in a quincunx with Saturn, a grounded attitude to household expenditure, property plans and family interactions will also help.
