Today marks the beginning of a very independent period for you -- you can expect to start feeling a lot more interested in doing what you want to do and less interested in joining up with your gang of friends. Dinner alone now suddenly seems like a wonderful idea instead of an exercise in trying not to look lonely. Going to a movie by yourself will enable you to fully engage in the action onscreen instead of hushing your friends. Enjoy your solo time -- without apology.
Look out for mood swings as the week begins (and if you're coupled up, you might want to warn your sweetie). But with this increased emotional sensitivity comes heightened intuition -- very helpful in the love department. Thursday and Friday are your red-hot days this week. You're fierce and fearless, and very attractive in terms of animal appeal. With the slightest effort, you can make all sorts of things happen in the realm of romance. This weekend, to keep your good karma going, don't jump in and criticize someone else's romantic choices -- rather, try listening compassionately.

Lunar influences are most easily expressed when focused through Cancer, since the Moon is its ruler. With its huge pull, the Moon greatly influences the personality, the subconscious, and the emotions, molding instinctual behavior. When the Moon is in Cancer, strong emotions prevail over reason. Be cautious not to emotionally wound others or allow yourself to be wounded, as this is a particularly vulnerable time. In general, people will be passive, easy-going, sentimental, loving and nurturing. But beware: this maternal expression of caring is often expressed with food and it is tempting to over-indulge. Cancer is a nurturing sign and the most fertile sign of the zodiac, ruling the breasts and stomach. With the Moon in Cancer, it is a good time for creating life.
This can be a wildly tumultuous time, emotional, and introspective. You may recognize that the new beginnings you are making must also increase personal security to be worthwhile over the long haul. Get in touch with your gut instincts and begin to guide your life more deliberately, with an awareness of using your "6th sense" as well as your enthusiasm. Obstacles may emerge that require you to reevaluate how to better integrate yourself into your surroundings.
