Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
While you can feel somewhat playful today, dear Aries, as the day advances, you’re likely to feel increasingly more concerned with taking care of business. This is likely to be an enjoyable focus, not a chore. With the Moon’s move into your work and health sector, you want to be of practical use and help to others, and the Moon’s connection to the Sun at the top of your solar chart can stimulate your ambition to pursue your broader goals. It’s a good time for piecing things together one at a time and attending to various details. You’re ambitious, but you favor a leisurely pace now. A Venus-Ceres aspect forming in your solar eighth house boosts your intuition and further reinforces your enjoyment of work or research today and tomorrow. You may come to a realization or solution to an emotional or relationship problem, and it feels terrific. You might thoroughly enjoy an absorbing activity now.
While you can begin the day feeling very much to yourself, dear Taurus, as it progresses, you’re likely to want to share your good mood. The Moon moves into a sister Earth sign (Virgo) and then connects with the Sun in Capricorn – the other sign in the Earth sign trinity. This is just the right feel or vibe for natural, smooth expression and comfort. At the same time, your confidence builds, and you’re likely to seek gentle challenges. A supportive connection with someone is expected today, too, as Venus and Ceres head towards alignment. It’s a great time for reaching out to others if you need help, or simply showing your care and support, and feeling good about your interactions and relationships.
Your curiosity is in fine form today, dear Gemini, and while you’re inclined to enjoy connecting with others, as the day advances, you’ll likely seek out a support system or familiar comforts. The Moon moves into your solar fourth house, and there can be increased attention to your home and family, personal matters, or long-range plans. Dialing things back just a little for a couple of days makes sense now. Pacing yourself makes sense, too, but you’re also likely to enjoy a pet project or special attention to work and health endeavors today. You might thoroughly enjoy a connection with a co-worker, or work itself, and this is encouraging rather than stressful. Approach the world in a more relaxed, creative way today for best results.
The Moon heads into your solar sector of communication and movement today, dear Cancer, and you may find yourself in motion, making connections and mingling. This transit vibes well with the Sun’s current transit of your partnership sector. You’re craving company now. As the day progresses, you can tap into fantastic energy on creative and romantic lines with Venus and Ceres moving towards alignment in your solar fifth house. This transit frames you well. People are enjoying your unique style, and they’re especially attracted to your supportive manner. You can be feeling exceptionally creative and warm, and you have a stronger appreciation of your surroundings and your relationships today and tomorrow.
The Moon begins the day in your sign, dear Leo, but then moves into your solar second house, and you seek activities that ground you. This vibes well with the Sun’s current transit of your work and health sector, and you might thoroughly enjoy a more practical or business-y frame of mind now. With emotions less immediate and urgent, you can get the chance to regroup, and you find it easier to pay special attention to your work or practical affairs. As well now, a warm influence in your home and family sector encourages care of your inner world or personal life. It’s a good time for showing your concern for others and doing some self-pampering, too. Attention to beauty, balance, and comfort on the home front can be satisfying. All around, low-key activities and settings are in positive focus.
With the Moon’s move into your sign today, dear Virgo, you might decide to take a personal inventory of any needs that you’ve buried, as it’s an important exercise in self-awareness at this time of the lunar month. You might find easy ways to channel emotional energy now, particularly related to creative or recreational activities, with the Moon’s harmony to the Sun in your solar fifth house today. Competitions may run in your favor, and you’re likely to attract positive attention. Even so, there can be some feelings of discontent or discomfort that motivate you to make necessary adjustments and changes today. You express yourself in caring, supportive, and engaging ways, and you can find much to savor regarding your personal interests or projects.
The Moon moves into your soul sector today, dear Libra, and this can bring the necessity or desire for some level of anonymity, withdrawal, and extra personal space to feel and think. It’s a good time to do some review or take extra time for relaxation. There can be good energy for family activities or work around the home today as the Moon harmonizes with the Sun, currently transiting your home and family sector. You’re also in a fabulous position to take special care of pet projects and attend to your valuables and money matters, in general, as your ruler, Venus, moves into alignment with Ceres in your resources sector. Enjoying comfortable activities is favored, and your money sense is terrific now.
You may begin the day in a rather serious frame of mind, dear Scorpio. Self-expression is natural as the day advances and you allow yourself more spontaneity. With the Moon’s move into your solar eleventh house, a sector of the chart that rules your higher aspirations, the primary key to emotional satisfaction or fulfillment right now may be to focus on those wishes and dreams dearest to your heart. With Mercury and Pluto parallel now, the tendency is to go all in with whatever you’re doing. Venus and Ceres are about to join forces in your sign, too, and you can sense others’ appreciation of you and your special style or unique way of meeting and greeting the world. You’re standing out pleasantly.
There is a particular love of spontaneity as you begin the day, dear Sagittarius, but as it advances, you’ll find yourself more serious and perhaps more accountable as the Moon heads into your public and career sector. Whether this feels good or challenging can depend on how well you have met recent responsibilities. Life plan goals and responsibilities are called to mind. Also today, Mercury in your sign forms a parallel aspect with probing, investigative Pluto, and you’re inclined to do some serious musing. You may very well find special joy in quiet and private moments now despite the Moon’s prominent position in your solar chart with a configuration forming in your privacy sector that suggests you may be nurturing some special feelings. Enjoying time to yourself or a short escape can be just what you need to round out your day.
While you can begin the day rather inward-focused, dear Capricorn, as it advances, you’re likely to be seeking ways to bring some adventure into your life with the Moon’s move into your solar ninth house. You might look for ways to release yourself from intense emotions if you don’t already gravitate towards them naturally today, as you’re in need of some emotional refreshment. There can be healing, happy connections with friends or your networks or community now as Venus and Ceres head towards alignment in your social sector. You may be nurturing a friendship, or a new connection can be made that shows a lot of promise. Alternatively, this aspect can point to special attention to new goals and plans. This energy is about nurturing something special, whether that’s a connection, idea, or project.
The Moon continues its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Aquarius, but then heads into your intimacy sector. It’s a fine time for getting in touch with your innermost desires, and possibly also sharing them with someone you trust. There is greater self-understanding now, and an improved sense of inner strength and resolve. Despite a tendency to keep to yourself as the day advances, a configuration is forming at the top, most public part of your solar chart, benefiting your career or reputation. It’s a time for making a good impression. You could derive particular enjoyment from taking the lead, managing a situation, or pouring special love into an important project or ambition.
You may begin the day in a practical frame of mind, dear Pisces, but as it advances, you’ll feel considerably more sociable, craving company. The Moon heads into your partnership sector, and while there, harmonizes with the Sun in your friends and dreams sector, producing a smooth, pleasant feeling of being connected with others. The day favors openness to new ways of interacting and cooperation, in general. You’re drawn to situations and pastimes that feed your spirit, and you’re likely to find them more readily than usual. This can be a good time for the enjoyment of learning and studies, experiencing something new, a wonderful discussion or exchange of ideas, or a project that breaks your usual routine.
