Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Your need for some adventure or new experiences, however big or small, is active today, dear Aries, as the Moon in your creative sector connects with Jupiter and Mercury in your solar ninth house. Your ideas –and sense of fun–are big and prominent today. Avoid putting too high expectations on yourself today, and let yourself explore your thoughts and desires without pressure. You have a greater need for recreation and leisure than usual with this Moon transit. Easy conversations and a spirit of openness make this day a potentially enjoyable one. Others are attracted to your ideas and your intelligence, but do avoid over-thinking and intellectualizing things that are better handled with more heart.
Socially and personally, it should be a strong day, dear Taurus. Authority figures or parents might hold you in stronger favor right now. If you need backing or support, today is good for getting it. You can benefit from looking within now, where you can find many answers to recent questions. The Moon spends the day in your protective solar fourth house, stimulating your needs for safety, security, and familiarity. It’s an excellent time for introspection. Your need to observe and reflect is stronger than usual, as processing your feelings and recent events seem important now. Rather than pushing forward with new activities, take the time to explore what is happening on the inside. Memories or dreams today can be motivating and can even lead to new takes on a current situation.
Self-expression comes especially easily today, dear Gemini, boosting social events or rapport with others. While you can work the whole crowd today, one-on-one shines brightest at the moment. You more readily take a few “risks” intellectually, and the rewards are good. The need to support or entertain others is at the forefront. You have an increased desire to spend time with others, even while engaging in rather mundane or simple tasks like running errands. It makes sense to let your curious and optimistic spirit guide your day. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, stimulating your curiosity and need to connect.
This is a strong day for talking rationally, readily, and naturally about health, career, and work, dear Cancer. It’s a time for grounding yourself now that the Moon has left your sign and is visiting your resources sector. While you might continue to focus on body needs, attention, and pampering, emotionally you’re more patient and willing to concentrate on building rather than expecting your needs to be met immediately. This allows you to see what’s truly important. Watch for overindulging now, but overall, it’s a beautiful time for enjoying yourself. Today is excellent for giving thought to how you can improve your work or income, and conversations about your practical affairs or the information you come across now can be helpful along these lines.
Today is strong for connecting with others, dear Leo, and especially with people you love. Conversations are progressive and forward-looking. Life is less stressful, and you are much less annoyed by inconveniences or difficult personalities. With the Moon in your sign, you can feel a strong need for self-nurturing. This shouldn’t be dismissed – it’s a time to pay more attention to the child within! As well, you’re especially willing to share your generous mood with the people around you. It’s a time for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time. You’re in particularly good shape for shared activities with someone special, or a partner or friend may help you get to a creative idea.
Service comes naturally to you, dear Virgo, and you could find that you’re helping others out and thoroughly enjoying it today. You more readily give of yourself now, and others appreciate it. Even so, you are a little more withdrawn or inclined to go low-profile today than usual with the Moon in the sign just behind yours all day. Problem-solving comes so naturally today that you might find you’re quickly and easily fixing things that previously stumped you. Focusing on others can be rewarding, particularly if you are helping out or supportive in some significant way. Family or home life can be lively and helpful. There is nice energy with you for talking things through with loved ones.
Your gentler qualities are subtly enhanced and more noticeable today, dear Libra. It’s also a good time for conversations revolving around your personal interests and causes. There can be an active interest in learning new things and connecting with others. Despite a potentially busy day, it may not be the most productive of days, but this feels just fine for now. You can be positively focused on goals, dreams, and wishes. You’ll find that talking and connecting come easily and are soothing as well. Opportunities for cooperation, loving and personal gestures, and shared happiness emerge, although there is extra sensitivity or some tendency to misinterpret things in spots now.
The Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, dear Scorpio, and you may be presented with circumstances that call you to mature and grow. With the Moon at the top of your chart, you too feel the urge to reach greater heights. You may notice that there are more eyes on you than usual, which can motivate you to do your best or to put more effort into what you’re doing. Your emotions feel steady today, and you’re inclined to focus on your physical and sensual needs more than usual, with great success. Conversations are down-to-earth and useful, and also quite pleasant today.
There can be a nice feeling of camaraderie around you today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re likely to feel entirely at ease expressing both your ideas and feelings. The day is expected to be lively and busy. Information that you’ve been waiting for might come to you today. It’s a good day for enjoying others. You are the trendsetter with your progressive ideas at the moment. The Moon’s transit of your sector of adventure and higher learning helps to lift your spirits as you rise above the regular stresses and problems of your daily life. You’re likely to crave engaging experiences and a break from the routine or a change of scenery. You may get on the same page with a special person in your life regarding beliefs, ideas, and ideals today.
This is a good day for taking care of business, as well as for social events, dear Capricorn. It can also be a strong time to talk over strategies regarding managing your money and family matters, and it’s also good for taking care of business in general, as your mind is all set to do so. Even so, the Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, and indulging in some alone time can be very beneficial now. It’s a favorable time for listening to your heart as you have the chance to truly get in touch with your innermost desires. You should take this opportunity, as you are moving into a more outgoing phase and you’ll want to know what’s inside so that you represent it well when you do share yourself with others.
There is an easy, natural energy to much of the day, dear Aquarius, as well as fluidity between your feelings and intellect, and you might find it easy to communicate at both levels. It’s an excellent time to correct problems in relationships and to iron out differences. With the Moon in your opposing sign all day, you are more aware of what others think about you, and you are more adaptable and accommodating than usual. This position generally gives you an extra boost on a social and romantic level, even if it also means that your personal plans or temporarily on the back burner. You’re in need of intellectual companionship or stimulation now. Openness today can bring new opportunities into your life.
The tendency today is to talk comfortably and naturally about matters that previously were hidden or too private to discuss, dear Pisces. Things are flowing smoothly. The Moon spends the day in your sector of routine, habits, health, and work, and there can be a stronger focus on service or organization than usual. You tend to keep a lower profile with this monthly transit, and it suits you fine for the time being. Conversations can lead to new ideas or methods of getting things done that are empowering. While you can be practical-minded today, it’s a fine time for cooperating and enjoying your interactions and discussions.
