Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
This is an exciting time for romantic appeal, desires, personal expression, and creative ideas, dear Aries. Ideas or attractions can come on suddenly, and you may very well feel invigorated by something new. There can be a desire to express your talents, artistic abilities, or feelings for someone. A blast of courage or willingness to go after what you want can happen as Mars, your planetary ruler, forms a parallel with Uranus. An unexpected meeting or a wave of energy can pass over you now, inspiring action. Even if a new whim doesn’t last, you are bound to discover needs or wants that you didn’t know you had, and it’s a great learning experience. It’s these kinds of moments that often spark a promising new direction.
The desire to improve, change, or upgrade your life is strong today, dear Taurus. It’s particularly prominent in your personal life, regarding family or domestic matters, and related to your attachments. Opening up, communicating more, and improving domestic conditions can be among the changes on your agenda. New methods and directions for handling old problems can come on with seemingly no warning, and you’re inspired to get going. Getting rid of things you no longer need can be part of the equation. It’s easier than usual to see what can go all in the name of progress! Identifying attitudes that are holding you back from getting over an obstacle can instead be the focus.
Sudden desires today can inspire you to go in a brand new direction, dear Gemini. Exciting new developments, ideas, and interests figure strongly. While you may want to watch for too-quick speech, discovering new things or new avenues for expressing yourself and connecting are prominent now. Information coming to you today may steer you toward useful changes. Communications and learning endeavors are likely to be especially successful right now. You may see more clearly than ever what has been standing in your way as Mars and Uranus form a parallel. The Moon spends the day in your spirit and adventure sector, and your sights are set high. You want to feel alive and vital, not bound to the same old routines.
New developments or unusual events surrounding business or financial matters can figure strongly now, dear Cancer. Innovative new ideas or sudden recognition can get you all fired up and motivated. While impulses to spend may need a second look, it’s a fine time to feel inspired by new methods or technologies. Product or business ventures ideas can be golden. Insights coming to you can seem to hint at a new direction. Even if some desires don’t stick, you are exploring your options, and it’s a useful exercise. You may very well tap into something exciting. New ideas may eat up a lot of your time, but you can also learn much in the process. You seem to be able to envision ways of making the best or the most of a situation. The focus can be on a practical improvement or item that makes your life just a little better. Clearing the decks in some manner can have the same happy result.
Your spirit for change and improvement or advancement is strong today, dear Leo. There is a lot of energy with you, and while some of it is on the impulsive side, you’re motivated and excited. Pay attention to flashes of insight, as they may lead you in a refreshing new direction. This can be a day of synchronicity or surprises, and possibly some emotional unblocking as you see what has been standing in your way. You may get the chance to clarify yourself to someone, which feels good. Your ideas and plans seem more important than anything right now, however, and you’re inclined to run with them now.
Something that resurfaces today may seem out of the blue but can be an essential reminder to tie up a loose end from the past, dear Virgo. Impulses are strong, and desires seem to come on with great force. With Mars parallel Uranus and a heavy focus on your solar twelfth house, they are likely to do with something private or behind closed doors. The need to close the door on a matter seems more critical than anything today. Consider consequences, but if you need to break out of a bad habit or a frustrating circumstance, this electric energy might give you the push to do so. You have a real sense for what you need to change, get rid of, or adjust so that you can move forward.
There can be surprises or exciting discoveries today, dear Libra, and a need to make changes becomes evident. Friendships, hopes, and wishes for the future are stimulating. Influences today can encourage a new idea or plan for the future, and possibly a revelation in a relationship. An opportunity can emerge that helps you understand yourself and a situation far more clearly. Your communications go over well, in part because your convictions are strong. The Moon spends the day in your sector of leisure and joy, encouraging you to follow your heart, and the desire to share your happiness with someone is powerful.
Surprising events and feelings emerge today, dear Scorpio. Sudden urges to break free from a limiting situation can be positive if they encourage you to make constructive changes. Career changes can occur, or you seem to veer off in a slightly new direction based on strong intuition. If ideas related to a business or career/life path come to you now, they’re inclined to be unusual, progressive, and innovative. Aim to act from the heart rather than merely react to situations. Good energy is with you for communicating and sharing ideas. Equality in your conversations is likely now, and very appreciated! However, you also need a space to call your own today as the Moon transits the bottom of your solar chart all day.
Good conversations can happen today that both inspire and ground you, dear Sagittarius. Relationship repairs are favored if needed, and even if not, it’s a fine time to extend a helping hand or offer supportive words. You can be itching to do something different, new, and possibly a little adventurous or outside of the routine. Fortunately, today’s energies may nudge you toward an important discovery or an exciting new interest. A desire to write or learn a new subject can overtake you, and following a hunch can be fun now. Considering different angles is the tendency, and it can be instrumental. A the same time, your intuitive sense for opportunities is strong. Your own thoughts can take you to exciting places.
A spirit of innovation is strong today, dear Capricorn, and a hunch can overcome you, exciting your senses. An element of surprise is part of the day as Mars aligns with Uranus in a parallel aspect. Your love relationships or a passion project can be very much part of the excitement. You may want to clear something up or handle a matter once and for all. Impulses, desires, and sudden feelings can occur now that might initially confuse you. However, the desire to make significant changes and to put certain limiting conditions behind you can be empowering. While you are more excitable than usual, you’re using your resources intelligently. Things you overlooked in the past seem most important now, and uncharted territories are appealing. You could be seeing private matters on a whole new level.
The Moon transits your sign all day, dear Aquarius, and your ruler, Uranus, forms a parallel with Mars, awakening your senses. You’re a little more impulsive, and emotional desires can seem to be urgent needs. Others are drawn to you now, and personal magnetism is strong. There can be sudden needs or desires awakened, and a close relationship can throw you some surprises. These can prompt you to make changes, but it’s important to work from true instincts rather than sudden impulses or reactions. Welcome the courage that’s with you now. A new development with a special person in your life can prompt a detour or a change, but can also be quite welcome. Conversations can be very enlightening, particularly those that concern prospects.
The desire to make sweeping changes can come on suddenly today, dear Pisces. You’re particularly interested in improving or advancing your daily affairs and routines, studies, or projects. Health, too, is a common focus these days. While not everything is likely to run as planned, it’s a fine day for recognizing the need for new methods. Unexpected events or sudden urges can lead to the need to rearrange your schedule or take charge of a work or health matter. Conversations or inspiration that help clarify an issue, set rules, or prompt the making of goals can figure strongly in all of this. At the same time, the Moon spends the day in your private solar twelfth house, and you need a little extra rest. If you can manage some time off from heavy or demanding situations, do take it.
