Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Letting off steam in constructive ways will bring you the most success today, dear Aries. The New Moon occurs in your sign early tomorrow. Your best bet today is to concentrate on the things you want to improve in your life, particularly in terms of your personality, image, and attitudes, as this New Moon is about personal resolutions. There is healing energy with you for relationships, and this can take place entirely within, such as putting a past betrayal or loss behind you, or without, such as moving past an obstacle in a partnership or friendship. Observations made now can lead to improvements that you could put into action later. It’s a time for taking stock and thinking about changes you’d like to make. Today’s energies are good for creative ideas and simple shows of affection.
Today’s energies are suitable for nurturing, creative, and domestic activities, dear Taurus. The Moon in your mental wellness sector today points you in the direction of processing, disengaging, and relaxing. This is the day before a New Moon, suggesting that new initiatives begun today are unlikely to take seed. Quieter activities and some level of anonymity are in order now. Keep a low profile. While rest might elude you at the moment, you need it, and in the days ahead, this will become quite obvious. As you wind down, discoveries can be rich, and others supportive. There is healing energy with you, and it makes sense to take note of the impressions and visions you have today, as they can be significant.
This can be an excellent day for putting complicated feelings about a past matter behind you, dear Gemini, or for tying up the loose ends of a project. Forgiveness and graciousness are with you today. This can be a positive time for friendships, particularly when it comes to sharing ideas and exchanging stories, and for networking. Someone may be expressing their feelings about you. A partner or friend can be giving you vital feedback, but you can also gather valuable information from or through them less directly. Interactions today are encouraging and possibly quite fruitful. You can be filled with ideas about your future or about new projects and dreams. However, it’s not time to rush anything. Instead, it’s a good idea to center yourself and to take in information rather than to push for new experiences today, as the New Moon that occurs tomorrow is likely to change your perspective, bringing new interests and directions to your life.
This is a strong time for reviewing recent business projects, decisions, or ideas, dear Cancer. Thinking about life direction and long-term goals in new ways can be fruitful now, although it’s important not to push anything at the moment. You could find a nice balance between your personal and professional life now, and others, especially those you work with, tend to go along with your plans, if not outright support you. You’re feeling good about your performance or about pats on the back you’ve been receiving, and this fires you up for creating new goals in these areas. Keep in mind that tomorrow’s New Moon brings a blast of in-charge energy for you related to your career and reputation. Avoid making sweeping changes today; learn from what you take in now.
Today is strong for learning, generating ideas, and enjoying a general sense of motivation, dear Leo, although there can be some things up in the air. Because the Moon is Balsamic, this is a time for letting go rather than revving up, but you can feel energized today. This is a time for self-improvement through extending yourself beyond your normal routine, and the New Moon tomorrow may point you in a new direction along these lines. Pay more attention to what information comes in now, but also from your own musings. There is no need to force anything — just let your mind go. Children, a romantic partner, or friend can be especially considerate or encouraging now. It may not be the best time for entirely new endeavors or launches, but it’s a fine time to settle a matter.
It’s best not to push a matter today, dear Virgo, as it might only serve to exhaust you and get you nowhere closer to your goal. You should be concentrating on letting go and relaxing your mind instead. This is a day that favors putting matters to rest and taking in information so that you absorb and digest things. Consider also that tomorrow’s New Moon is likely to take your mind away from current concerns and onto more empowering ones. Even so, there can be a resolution to a problem related to debt, support, or shared resources. As well, hearts are open right now. You’re in a good place for delving into your intimate thoughts and feelings, as you could be making some critical discoveries now. Loved ones may be a little more open and considerate than usual.
This can be a good day for showing your feelings for someone, dear Libra. You’re in a superb position to come together in agreement or cooperation with a partner or special friend. Someone may very well impress you now. You won’t have all the facts or answers right now, but this can be useful as you wind down before tomorrow’s New Moon. While counseling and advice can be in focus and helpful, your own intuition is likely to win out today. Tomorrow’s New Moon brings a more in-charge and naturally confident or forward-looking energy to your relationships. Today is better for coming to peace with yourself, and fortunately, you have cosmic support for this in spades.
Try to take some of the pressure off on this day before a New Moon, dear Scorpio, which can be an empowering one for you. You’re likely to feel the need to help or support others now. Let intuition work for you. Do take the time to consider problems, as you’re inclined to come at them from a new angle and this can be very helpful, but tune into your instincts as they can serve you well. This is also a fine time for dreaming up marketing strategies. Coming to a good work-life balance is in focus, too, and you can be particularly interested in activities that heal, renew, and refresh. Your services or the work you do is likely to be appreciated.
Your appeal gets a real boost today, dear Sagittarius, particularly when it comes to your creative ideas, wit, and warmth. This is a potentially excellent time for all things romantic and creative, although with the New Moon about to occur (it’s happening early tomorrow), brand-new beginnings should wait. Friendships can be exceptionally warm, and love affairs particularly friendly! This can be a time for seeking out pleasure and sharing good times with others, and also for putting regrets or resentments behind you. There is strong energy today for showing others you care. Whims would be wisely tamed today, as interests and directions are likely to take a sharp turn after tomorrow’s New Moon.
The Moon is Balsamic, with a New Moon occurring early tomorrow, dear Capricorn, and it makes sense to wind down and avoid trying to push something forward, as it’s likely not yet ready. It’s a good idea to center yourself now. You’re likely to find that family and close friends are easy to get along with today, and you are particularly open to sharing your space and your thoughts with them. You might decide to reveal something personal about yourself. You could be feeling a pleasant sense of belonging and understanding with someone close to you. Try not to push for answers, but do some gentle exploration now–aim to get in touch with your intuition. This is a good day for releasing a problem.
Clearing the air with someone can lead to good feelings today, dear Aquarius. We’re considerate with one another, and this kind of civility is right up your alley. You are likely to find yourself in a pleasantly sociable mood. New beginnings are in the works related to learning, mental interests, communication, neighbors, connections, or relatives with tomorrow’s New Moon, and now is a good time to pull back and allow your intuition to go to work for you. Your advice to someone can be sought and appreciated. Friends or networking can be helpful and possibly catalysts for ideas birthing now. New directions are forthcoming, and for now, it’s best to concentrate on reviewing, reflecting, tying up loose ends, and letting go.
New beginnings are likely in your life regarding money, business, valuables, talents, and personal possessions, dear Pisces. Fertile energy is with you for a fresh take on any of these matters with a New Moon about to occur in your solar second house. Not everything is likely to make sense as is often the case with new beginnings, but the tides are turning. You are projecting a lot of warmth and love on a public or professional level today, and this can benefit you greatly. This is a potentially strong day for healing yourself through grounding activities or physical contact. Today, take things easy and wind down as a cycle wraps up.
