Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
It’s not especially easy to understand one another at times today, dear Aries, with Mercury a bit beleaguered. That’s okay, as it can lead to critical thinking or detours, but it can feel like night and day with the shift from understanding to disconnect. We’re building to a Full Moon, exact early tomorrow, that can bring unresolved emotional matters to a head and remind you of things that need your full attention. Tension over unmet or unspoken needs can surface, and it’s time to pay attention to them. With this lunation occurring in your communications sector, you can feel a strong desire to be understood! Others could recognize you for recent ideas, projects, or learning endeavors, or there can be a turning point or revelation regarding these matters.
There can be times when you feel out of sync today, dear Taurus, so it may be a good idea to plan ahead of yourself. Communications can go awry, or you’re easily distracted. We’re building towards a Full Moon, exact early tomorrow, stirring up strong feelings surrounding business and financial matters, or it might indicate a turning point with a money matter or project. A conflict over money, sharing, or balance of power can be in focus now, or you might recognize your need to take more control of your resources. News may come in, or circumstances are such that changes your outlook on money today and in the week ahead. If you’ve been holding emotions back, they can erupt now. While there is a lot to learn from your feelings or discoveries now, you may not have a plan of action, and that’s just fine. Most important now is that you see things you may have ignored or overlooked.
A good part of you is focused on making peace these days, dear Gemini, but another part of you wants to deep-dive into problem areas. Today, you’re more willing than usual to go the extra mile to improve your connections. You stand to learn a lot from and with others, even if there could be some frustration in your communications. Even so, if a matter is leading to a dead-end, you may need to investigate your alternatives–just be careful not to jump into (or out of) something due to current frustrations that you may later regret. The Moon spends the day in your sign, charging up your emotions. Early tomorrow, a Full Moon will occur in Gemini, and you’re building to exciting realizations. Emotions heighten and personal epiphanies seem likely today and tomorrow. Finding a better balance in your relationships is an ongoing issue that may not resolve itself now, but you can certainly see where changes should happen.
If you’re falling behind in a project, dear Cancer, try to set aside some time to be alone or put yourself in a setting with limited distractions. Impatience and nervousness in others may need to be managed, although you may instead decide to walk away from it until things quiet down. Work, health, and service issues are active on your mind now, and ultimately, it’s about making useful changes. There may be a change of plans or other surprise elements that can be disconcerting at first, but that may lead to a better place or position on a matter. The Moon is in your privacy and endings sector all day, and a Full Moon is about to occur in this same house of your solar chart, exact very early tomorrow. This lunation can prompt a strong need for extra rest or time to yourself, and very likely some sudden intuitive flashes and feelings that are hard to dismiss. Dreams and hunches can be powerfully telling, but do take your time with decision-making.
A change of plans or opinions can throw you off for a bit today, dear Leo. Avoid making snap decisions, and aim to learn from differences rather than simply react to them. Airwaves may feel a little clogged. If you need time to sort things out, then take it, or do your best to avoid distractions, but be sure to let the people you care about know why you’re aloof or a bit out of touch. Outside obligations can demand attention with a Full Moon occurring in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. Friends may need you, or there can be a need to reach out and team up. There may be some social drama or revelations that stir the pot now in the coming week. A buried relationship problem can emerge and demand attention. New insight or discoveries empower you. Keep in mind that blocks to progress and communication today are likely quite temporary.
Mercury forming minor challenging aspects today can point to problems feeling understood, dear Virgo, or could lead to some jittery feelings. It could also delay the realization of what you’re trying to accomplish now. Consider that there may be some method in the madness, or changes of plans could lead to something better. The tendency to be easily distracted and a little spaced-out is strong, so be a bit more cautious than usual. The pace around you is hectic, or at least it might seem that way as there can be a lot of restless energy to handle. Don’t let impatience rule. A difference of opinion could get you more riled up than usual under these conditions. The Moon is approaching full at the top of your solar chart, and you may need to take the lead or take charge. Career matters can demand attention or outside obligations emerge after weeks of increased attention to your personal life.
There may be changes in plans to deal with today, dear Libra. News could arrive that requires a rethinking of a recent endeavor or adjustment of your schedule. You may feel that others are misunderstanding you or challenging your viewpoint. Even though they can be frustrating, events today can bring you to a better understanding of your mind or plans. People in your life can be exasperating yet inspirational, as well. The Full Moon approaches and stimulates your need for adventure, escape, mind expansion, and new experiences and settings. A project or studies might reach a turning point or culmination this week, and you’re ready to take the next step. A break in the routine may be just what you needed, but you might also become aware of delays. It becomes apparent to you that you need to find the time to fit extracurricular activities into your days, and while changes may not happen immediately, you’re in the right headspace for moving forward.
Decisions and choices may be a little tricky today, dear Scorpio, particularly if your schedule is too chaotic and you don’t seem to have the time to sort things out. When it comes to your money and valuables, avoid a hasty approach, as there can be a tendency to forget or overlook important details. Or, mental strain can keep you on the fence about a matter or a person in your life. You’re probably better off staying there until you have further information. Quick judgments are unlikely to serve you well at the moment. As the day advances, we build towards a Full Moon that’s exact early tomorrow. This energy brings emotions to the surface and hidden matters to light. For you, it may illuminate an issue related to finances, debts, or a partnership. It’s a time for pushing yourself to see what you’ve been ignoring or overlooking–you’re awakening to the need for change.
Life doesn’t feel very organized today, dear Sagittarius, but you can adapt to this. Your strong sense of future trends helps you plan accordingly. Changes are necessary, and being flexible will make transitions much more comfortable. Tensions may stem from worries about the things you haven’t done. You could be feeling a little scattered if you’ve far too much to do but at a loss regarding where to begin. You might also have a strong feeling that work and daily routines are weighing you down when you’d much rather take part in more free-form activities. Also today, we’re building to a Full Moon in your opposite sign, and emotions tend to run high. It’s a time for recognizing your relationship needs or awakening to the needs of a partner. This lunation can bring about a personal revelation or exposure. Still, you might feel a little blocked from enjoying yourself or your newly discovered feelings since there’s some confusion to clear first.
Communications are imperfect or imperfectly delivered today, dear Capricorn, with Mercury forming minor challenging aspects. Try to relax and manage things step by step. A scattered approach will only serve to up anxiety levels. As well, the Moon is approaching full in your work and wellness sector, and you might reach a turning point with a work project or situation or with a health matter. The Full Moon occurring early tomorrow has a way of pulling things out into the open. Frustrations with working or living conditions can push you to make a change. Keep in mind that your feelings are big right now but will even out in the coming days, so do listen to what your intuition is telling you but hold off on making big decisions.
Emotions run on the high side today, dear Aquarius, but you are in control. Enjoy new insights and play with new ideas, but look before you leap. Thinking is a little scattered, and it can be challenging to get a straight answer. However, today has a way of pulling things out into the open, and while that can sometimes feel a little messy, it’s ultimately revealing and useful. The Moon is approaching full in your romance and creativity sector. The energy of this Full Moon can spur a turning point or illumination in a romantic affair, relationship with a child, or friendship. There may be some tests or ultimatums, but something is now released, helping clear the path for improvements going forward. You’re reminded to take some personal time, and recognizing the need for change is your first step.
Today holds some scattered energy but the potential for rich discoveries, dear Pisces. If you experience a sudden lack of steam in a relationship or project, know that it’s likely temporary. You may need to be on the fence about something, mulling things over, just for the moment. It can leave you feeling divided or drained, but can also help you gain perspective. You might receive advice that bothers you but consider that it could be useful in bits and pieces, and a more rounded decision can result, even if you don’t take the advice! With the Moon approaching full in your home and family sector, you receive a reminder of the need to pay more attention to your family, private world, or personal matters after a whole lot of attention to the needs of the outside world. Things that you’ve been avoiding or overlooking may reveal themselves.
