Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
This is a generally excellent time for getting things done, dear Aries. There can be some negative thinking, withdrawal, or emotional distance in your interactions at times today, however. They’re unlikely to be a symptom of a bigger problem. Instead, this is a day when you’re more self-protective and cautious with your feelings than usual. Fortunately, you can plug away at your work or the things you need to do, and you can feel good about a job well done. With Venus and Mars in your work and health sector, relationships on the job or in your daily routines can improve considerably. A balanced approach to your everyday life and interactions helps. As the Moon moves into your home and family sector later today, you may need some peace and quiet. Family relationships tend to thrive today, particularly if you focus on shared routines and activities that promote improved organization.
There is creative, useful energy for practical solutions today, dear Taurus. Even so, if circumstances seem to require you to prove yourself, ask yourself if it’s something you genuinely need to do. Aim to sow the seeds of future success by moving above your insecurities, but the answer may not be to ignore them. You may be experiencing some reservations about a person, project, or situation, or possibly a purchase. The Moon’s move into your communications sector later today feels lively and encourages more movement and interaction in your life. You’re motivated to share your ideas or creations. Opening up to new ideas can figure strongly later today. Look for ways to enjoy yourself without guilt–the key may be to do some tidying up or making adjustments.
While you are now in a rather homebody phase, dear Gemini, people and circumstances may not allow you the pleasure of peace and quiet today! You can feel a strong need for recognition of your efforts by the people dearest or closest to you, but others may not be on the same wavelength. Of course, this doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate you. Perhaps you feel that when you need them the most, they’re absent or self-absorbed. Ride this out — it’s likely just a brief time of being out of sync. It might be a good idea to be active with people you love so that you can satisfyingly harness the energies of today rather than flitting from one activity to the next. The Moon’s move out of your sign and into your money sector later today pulls your attention to practical matters. Emotionally speaking, you begin to crave more predictability.
There may be some passive-aggressive overtones in others that disturb you at times today, dear Cancer. Inner restlessness is stirred, and it may take you some time to come in touch with what it is that you are craving. Even so, aim to enjoy conversations and new ideas now. Aim to get in better touch with your needs and desires before making a serious commitment, but don’t let that process interfere with your mood. Later today, the Moon ends its transit of your privacy sector and enters your sign, pulling out from the backwoods of your solar chart. You might view this shift as a new beginning, of sorts. You begin to crave more interaction with your personal environment and a more spontaneous, active approach to your life.
Today can be a little tricky on social levels, dear Leo. A disconnect with someone can lead to misunderstandings. You may see things for their flaws more than their benefits temporarily. Even so, using this energy to fix problems rather than dwell on what’s not working can be useful. With a little patience, you’ll see things more clearly. The desire to feel more secure and comfortable is the driver behind a lot of what you do now and in the weeks ahead. The Moon’s move into your privacy sector for a couple of days happens later today and can be a welcome transit. This short cycle is excellent for healing activities, keeping to yourself, and renewing yourself emotionally. Keeping a low profile, for now, can be helpful.
While your instincts have been on point these days, dear Virgo, they may not be serving you as well today. This is not because your intuition is off, but rather due to guilt or fear masking your gut feelings. Creatively speaking, your confidence may dip just for now. If you find a reason to doubt things, it may very well be you need more time to make an assessment — process before making big moves. Later today, the Moon moves into harmony with your sign and the Sun. Relationships with others tend to boost you, or you might find inspiration in an idea or future project. Cooperation comes easily. Keep in mind that while you have a tremendous showing of planets in your sign, the New Moon will help to tie everything together. The New Moon in Virgo will happen on the 30th, and until then, it’s best to observe and learn than to take definite action.
There can be some second-guessing today, dear Libra. It can be hard to count on first impressions. Try to focus on current projects and priorities rather than trying to push things forward. Obstacles are sometimes necessary, not only because they can give us pause to think, but also because they help us to see what and who we value. Your privacy sector has quite a bit of power in your solar chart, and this means you have a lot of work to do on yourself. Commit to forgiving yourself and taking a more creative and relaxed approach to your life. Examine but avoiding dwelling on guilt or fear. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart later today, reminding you of your responsibilities. You are noticed and acknowledged. While this transit can temporarily magnify the importance of duties and performance in your life, you’re also in a good position to get some serious work done.
You’re in an excellent cycle for combining both charm and assertiveness successfully for improving relationships and projects, dear Scorpio. Today, watch that inner restlessness doesn’t lead you to overindulge, which can bring upon sluggishness and possibly guilt. If you don’t feel ready to make a decision, you’re probably right to sit on the fence for a while longer. Disconnects that might happen now tend to be due to poor timing and lack of confidence or fear of rejection. This is not the best time to lay your heart on the line. Later today, the Moon moves into your spirit sector, prompting a need for a change of pace. Connecting with a goal related to happiness and fulfillment can be encouraging.
Your view of a situation may be a little off today, dear Sagittarius, but it’s temporary. It may give you pause, which can help you pace yourself and your endeavors. Knowing why you see things differently can help you keep your perspective. These days are generally excellent for performance, ambition, and motivation. Even with this dynamic energy, you do need to attend to other matters and make adjustments from time to time–today is one of those moments. The Moon moves into your solar eighth house later today, beginning a two-day cycle of increased introspection. It comes at a great time in this period before the New Moon when assessing and observing things makes more sense than beginning anew. Use this time to process and understand what’s going on within yourself before taking concrete action.
Increasingly you’re in great shape for more enjoyment, competitive activities, or spirit-boosting pursuits, dear Capricorn. Connecting with people can be mind-expanding. Today’s energies are a little tricky, however. Someone might confuse with their actions (or inaction). There could be pangs of discontent, and these can actually be quite useful for identifying problem areas. If something is out of sync now, it’s unlikely to be consequential. Making some edits and adjustments can be annoying but useful. The Moon heads into your partnership sector later today, and you seek out some company. This is a more sociable time of the month, although you’re inclined to prefer one-on-one connections right now. Try not to waste too much time on indecision today, but don’t push something forward if you’re not ready, either.
You’re in an excellent cycle for bringing creative and exciting energy to your inner or intimate world these days, dear Aquarius. Today is better for making assessments and adjustments than for pushing forward, however. Venus and Mars have just joined forces and now connect awkwardly with Chiron, suggesting you take a pause. Flaws may reveal themselves, or perhaps it’s more about you seeing them more clearly. Take the time to process, adjust, and assess. The Moon’s move into your health and habits sector later today encourages a stronger interest in taking care of business. Activities that get your life back on track in meaningful ways can be in focus. It’s best not to take on more major responsibilities and personal interests until you get a handle on what you already have in place.
There can be some exciting, spicy, creative, and spontaneous connections in your life these days, dear Pisces. Today’s energies seem to slow you down a little, but pacing yourself can come in handy. Getting perspective on a matter can be useful, but watch for a tendency to go a little too far with doubts today. Some indecision can buy you important time, but too much can keep you in a state of limbo. With the Moon’s move into your creative, outgoing solar fifth house later today, your spirits boost. Connecting with someone special or a pet project can be especially satisfying.
