The bouncy Moon in lively Leo starts Friday off in a playful manner but the mood is likely to turn a bit more serious before the day is done, due to Luna’s move into practical Virgo in the evening. Still, love can flourish in this meticulous and analytical sign as long as emotional extremes are avoided. Virgo values reason, organization and tidiness, and encourages us to shine by demonstrating our competence and reliability. Sloppy thinking, being tardy or acting inappropriately can be major turn-offs and interpreted as disrespectful and rude. But don’t get the idea that we’ve got to be so uptight that we can’t have any fun now. Instead of searching for the next party, we can enjoy ourselves working on personal projects, developing our skills or by helping others.
In fact, this weekend provides a perfect opportunity to be productive and playful at the same time. It’s amazing how sexy someone seems when they’re going out of their way to assist someone else; even small acts of kindness can make a major impression now. Although we may be a little fussier with the Moon in perfection-seeking Virgo, we also admire real acts of modesty and self-control. Showing off and coming on too strong are not going to make anyone more desirable this weekend. The Moon’s shift into sociable Libra early on Sunday night rewards gracious people and those with enough confidence and common sense to make compromises. Showing a willingness to put a partner first could be a strong move toward greater intimacy.
