Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re likely to find the reason to feel hopeful and even inspired, dear Aries. The Moon in your sector of adventure and higher thinking harmonizes with the Sun in your sign, and it can be easier than usual to work off steam by channeling emotions and energy into a creative or another non-routine pursuit. Today also holds good energy for thinking up strategies and logistics. Feeding your hunger for knowledge might be on the agenda. You might consider ways to release yourself from intense emotions if you don’t already gravitate towards them naturally today. Try not to stick to a script, as you need a little more than normal. Still, later today, you’re more likely to seek some order as you become more aware of your responsibilities. Others can be the source of useful resources or advice now. Look for allies in your networks.
TaurusYou can be quite productive if you have something that captures your interest today, dear Taurus, and it’s also a fine time to reach an agreement with a significant someone in your life and to sort out finances. The Sun and Moon harmonize, promoting cooperation. It’s a good day for discoveries about feelings and emotions. It’s a time for listening to what your instincts are telling you. There is greater self-understanding today, and a sense of inner strength and resolve. It’s a fine time to focus on emotional wellness, releasing, and purging. Still, this week, you can be noticed for the work you do, particularly things you’ve done in the past. You might be able to reduce and resolve issues to your advantage now.
GeminiThis can be a good day for getting valuable input from others, dear Gemini. You don’t have to agree, but what others say may very well get you thinking in new ways. It’s a time for staying open to new ways of interacting. You can feel particularly inspired by your projects and friendships now, or you might come to a better understanding of a relationship matter, and this can boost your spirits. You tend to be more concerned about other people in your life and their needs than your own personal agenda for now. Also now, you’re more courageous to express yourself, share your talents or work, or reach out to a new audience, and you can make serious progress on passion projects or studies. You might discover a resource that can help you work through a problem area or reach your goals.
CancerYou can feel a stronger need than usual to keep busy today, dear Cancer, as well as to be of practical use and help to others. You want to produce, fix, and resolve things now. You’re in good shape for piecing things together one at a time and attending to various details. Organize and categorize today so that later you’ll have all you need to make a more informed decision. It’s also an excellent time for finding the inspiration to set goals for healthy routines. Even further, it’s a great time for finding resolutions to problems in your personal or home life. Improvements may involve putting something that has run its course behind you, decluttering, reorganizing, or unloading or unburdening a personal problem. Seeing your priorities helps you along now.
LeoConditions are good for feeding your spirit today, dear Leo, and entertaining new ideas and perspectives can be refreshing. There’s a nice and smooth flow of creative expression now. You might learn something valuable about a love interest or your own feelings. You feel comfortable expressing your more enterprising traits. Later today, your work and responsibilities get more air time, but you can readily draw upon the ability to concentrate if needed, making it easy to switch gears. You are determined to get over a hump or resolve a problem, and success is likely. Others can find you particularly influential or attractive. You are better able to focus on your studies, projects, or relationships to your advantage.
VirgoThis is a day for special attention to home and family, your support system, personal matters, and long-range plans, dear Virgo. The focus is on gaining a stronger sense of security. Dialing things back a little seems the most satisfying and comforting at the moment. Pacing yourself is the way to get you back on track with current transits, and taking special care of matters at home or from their root leads to better prospects down the road. Settling your feelings can also help you out. As well, self-improvement efforts can shine this week, and efforts to manage your personal space or the time you invest in the care and maintenance of your things can be well worth it. You might discover resources for making improvements as you narrow your focus to key areas.
LibraThere is good energy for sharing your ideas today, dear Libra, as well as for learning interesting things. Conversations are smooth and a good mental exercise now. Diversifying is right for you with today’s Moon transit, although later today, you’ll feel the need to settle in and focus. Until then, mixing the routine can be useful. For some, it can be a good time to communicate with someone with whom you may have lost touch. Relating in unique ways seems to be the focus, and you’re doing it with panache. Today and this week, your personal appeal is particularly strong. It’s an excellent time for sharing your talents and passions. Personal changes and improvements can be in focus, and you might be considering repackaging yourself in some manner if you want to break through a barrier that has been holding you back from expressing yourself.
ScorpioLater today and tomorrow, you’ll be seeking more variety, dear Scorpio, but for much of today, you tend to prefer activities that ground you. Even so, you are approaching routine or comfort matters in different ways, with a new or improved approach. You’re certainly interested in getting comfortable, but you’re also more inclined than usual to find happiness in what you already have. With the Moon and the Sun’s harmony, it’s likely to be straightforward to find the right channels, likely related to work, healing, and comfort, for expressing and enjoying yourself. You might also find reorganizing things related to your home and family life can be especially satisfying and successful now. You want to feel more in control of your life, and you can take steps to grow, improve, and empower yourself by setting manageable goals.
SagittariusInfluences today tend to enhance your self-confidence and outlook, dear Sagittarius. Natural creative and romantic expression can figure strongly, and you’re more noticeable than usual. You also seem to be taking the lead or setting the pace now. You are likely to feel quite brave, particularly when it comes to expressing your affection or your more unique qualities. Improving your communications can be most satisfying this week, and while much of today is more about spontaneity, a bit of strategy can go a long way later today and in the next few days. Building up a project or envisioning a plan or dream can be satisfying.
CapricornToday’s transits incline you to need some personal space or time to think, dear Capricorn, although later day can find you more interactive. Good energy is with you for family activities or work around the home with the Moon’s harmonious aspect to the Sun in your sector of heart and home. It can be a time for behind-the-scenes support and a better sense of balance emotionally. Seek moments to slow down, reflect, process, and heal. Loved ones can help you clarify your feelings and ideas. Still, this week is particularly strong for getting money, career, or personal possessions sorted. You have a special ability to make mutually beneficial deals, and you can come up with great ideas for improving your situation.
AquariusSelf-expression comes more naturally today, dear Aquarius. For much of the day, the Moon is in the sector of your solar chart that rules your higher aspirations, suggesting the major key to emotional satisfaction or fulfillment may be to focus on those wishes and dreams dearest to your heart. You might also feel especially good if you support a friend or the community. Learning new things and inspirational ideas may also be in focus with the Moon’s harmonious aspect to the Sun in your communications sector. Later today, the Moon heads into your privacy sector, and during the couple of days that it transits here, you’re a little more withdrawn, seeking emotional replenishment as you wind down a cycle. This week is excellent for activities that help you grow, improve, learn, and expand your perspective, but you also need some time and space to collect yourself.
PiscesToday’s Moon transit stimulates your ambitions, dear Pisces, and its harmony with the Sun suggests you’re using your natural talents or resources to get ahead. You are interested in boosting your feelings of security and comfort now, and today’s efforts seem quite successful. At the same time, your life plan goals tend to be on your mind more than usual. You might be looking for positive feedback or recognition. Today and this week, you seem to have the inner courage and desire to take more control of your life. You can overcome obstacles more easily now, particularly as you can be determined to move forward, and you’re also realistic about what can truly be accomplished given current limitations.
