Surprise elements may keep you on your toes, and depending on your mood, can lead to creative detours or can be most annoying. Either way, a small change of pace may be in order.
Despite your strong ambitions to take care of business these days, dear Leo, you can quite easily succumb to distractions today. Personal interests are consuming, and there can be some emotional or spiritual needs that feel insistent now. You may need to step back to gain perspective or find ways to get a little break or emotional refreshment to come back to your work more productive and useful.
Prepare for wildcards today, not only due to changes of schedule but also with your own emotions and penchant for unusual or exciting ideas and tangents now. You can be a little torn between your desire for light entertainment and serious pursuits today, dear Virgo. Misunderstandings now likely arise from leaving needs unspoken in the hopes that someone will know them intuitively. When it comes to practical affairs, it can be difficult to distinguish true desire from whim, so try to defer important decisions for a day when self-knowledge is sharper.

This is a better day for making adjustments to our expectations and plans than for definitive action.

Poor planning or missed communications may mix up your schedules and plans, and relationship and family needs may seem to clash. This is a time for adjusting and resting before pushing forward. Whims experienced now are unlikely to have holding or staying power.

You can experience some restlessness today, dear Sagittarius, as you toy with a desire for something out of the ordinary.
Defining that may be difficult, however! In some ways, today is good for playing things by ear, and changes in plans can stimulate new approaches and ideas. This is an excellent time to deemphasize the ego and material world and to tune into your imagination, although you may fight these urges initially.
Be open and willing to look at matters from a positive perspective, but keeping things realistic is also important. You can make some exciting detours and discoveries if you keep an open schedule and mind today. Relationships and moods can suffer today if there are too-high expectations, dear Aquarius, with a couple of minor but challenging aspects that point to the need to regroup or make adjustments.
Take things slowly when it comes to making decisions, as all the details may not be apparent yet. Tomorrow, the Sun enters your sign, and several things are likely to clarify. Pulling back and considering your options is preferable for the time being. It can be difficult to discern whether desires run deep or are only superficial whims. A fresh or new approach can keep you engaged now, and if there is space left for surprises, all the better. Aim to make adjustments and enjoy the moment just for now, and matters will clarify in their own time.
