The phrase 'a means to an end' comes to mind now. You may have taken particular action aware of the fact that it might not bring the desired result but could play an indirect part in achieving it. Even if a plan hasn't brought the success you anticipated, don't chalk it up to failure. You've created momentum that might not be obvious yet. Give it a chance to reveal itself - and how helpful it will be.
As much as the Moon's return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart is always a treat and a chance to ensure life isn't all work and no play, there are other benefits today. This first visit since Mercury returned to Cancer last week and since Mars returned to an adventurous part of your chart three weeks ago, will see the Moon form a friendly aspect to both over the coming days. In the middle of a working week, life is asking you to play and explore.
