Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Your desire for variety in your social or mental life builds today, dear Aries, but there is also a strong part of you that would prefer to hide yourself away or to keep your observations to yourself. You can enjoy incredible energy for working on projects behind the scenes now, as exciting as this week tends to be. There can be breakthroughs now, as what at first seems a problem can turn in your favor. The Moon moves into your busy, curious, and connected solar third house this morning, keeping you on your toes until Friday. It’s a great time to pick up tips and ideas. However, do take some time to regroup and recoup your mental energy. This may be a critical time for a private conversation with someone you trust, or for giving particular thought to an issue that requires some wrapping up.
While the general tempo of the week is quick, dear Taurus, you’re likely to find it easy and natural to commit to a goal, cause, or venture today. You’re able to narrow your focus and pay particular attention to important details. You’ll find it incredibly healing and soothing to focus on cherished dreams or hopes, friends, or networking now. With a special goal or ideal in mind, not much can stop you now! Sharing viewpoints, personal philosophies, and opinions with others can lead to meaningful discoveries. With the Moon’s move out of your sign and into your resources sector this morning, you’re in great shape for applying your intuition in successful ways to a pet project, business venture, or financial planning and thinking.
The Moon moves into your sign this morning, dear Gemini, and will be your guest until Friday. People in your life tend to cooperate with you or step out of your way and let you get where you want to go! Mercury and Vesta meet at the top of your solar chart today, suggesting that even with this personal focus, your mind is on work or long-term goals. In fact, with a goal in mind, you can be uniquely focused and ambitious today. It can be the perfect time for making long-term plans and lists, organizing, leading, and managing. You’re able to tune out distractions now for great results. You might decide to commit to a responsibility, your performance, or a long-term goal, and you communicate with more conviction and authority. There is strong energy for getting a sense for what you want to achieve in the larger scheme of things. There can be some critical conclusions drawn now, and excellent feedback as well, as others look to you for guidance.
Today is solid for working on an in-progress project, dear Cancer, and for sharing ideas with people you love. You have more clout than usual. Current energies help you concentrate on details and focus your attention. Learning something special to you can figure strongly now. It’s a fine time for committing to self-improvement activities, studies, mind expansion, and learning. While you’re sure to enjoy this certainty and focus, the Moon’s move into your privacy sector today suggests some need to detox, pull back, and diffuse. Take the time to unwind and regroup if you can manage it. Until Friday when the Moon will enter your sign, taking things easy, at least on an emotional level, can be valuable as you wind down a Moon cycle through your solar chart.
The Moon moves into your social sector today, dear Leo, and some of the pressure to perform releases as you quite naturally seek out happier, easier activities until Friday. Nevertheless, a Mercury-Vesta aspect today favors an intensive focus on personal interests, research, and investigation, and pouring some time into these activities can be useful and rewarding. Absorbing pursuits or passion projects can be a strong draw, and perhaps even a healing one. You’re so engaged and intrigued that you can spend a lot of time lost in thought or research. Some form of counseling or therapy, or less formally, a conversation about private matters with someone you trust, can figure strongly now.
Even with slightly unstable themes this week, dear Virgo, there’s some beautiful energy for focus and balance woven into today’s astrology. You’re in good shape for concentrating and focusing on details, and you can feel pleasantly committed to a task–or perhaps to a person who seems to be coming through for you now. There can be someone special who helps motivate you to set important work or projects in motion. Conversations can readily turn to plans and strategies. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart this morning, where it will transit until Friday, stimulating your ambitions and turning your attention to your duties, reputation, and performance. This is an excellent time for finding an area of focus and working towards a specific goal.
Helpful energy is with you today for taking on a work or health problem, dear Libra. Your dedication and motivation are tops now, and your attention to detail is excellent. You can feel pleasantly committed to a task now. You might come up with fabulous ideas on how to best pursue a particular goal, and you can thoroughly enjoy coming up with special strategies or plans. Still, the Moon moves into your adventure sector, and you begin to crave more space and light on an emotional level during this brief but helpful transit that lasts until Friday. It’s easy to find reasons for being hopeful and optimistic. Expanding your mind or your personal experiences can be in focus.
The Moon heads into your solar eighth house today, dear Scorpio, and until Friday, you’re likely to seek more depth and intensity from your activities and relationships. It’s a time for more observing than doing, and the chances are good that you can benefit from some strategizing and planning now. Today’s energies are strong for focus on a special project or pursuit as Mercury and Vesta align in your solar fifth house. Expressing your commitment to someone or putting more of yourself into a project can be satisfying now. Time alone spent on expressive or leisure activities can be excellent for releasing tension and for healing, but so can an in-depth discussion with someone special.
With the Moon’s move into your partnership sector for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, you can be in an exceptionally companionable mood. This is a time in the lunar month for gaining perspective and considering other points of view, and it’s handy! While the week holds rather exciting energy, there is a wonderful pocket of time today in which focusing and concentrating tend to come easily, so do take advantage. Attention to family or a practical project can relieve stress, particularly if you cut out distractions and focus on one thing at a time, one step at a time. You’re in good shape for making plans related to home and family matters.
Mental focus comes more easily than usual today, dear Capricorn, even with a generally quicker pace this week. It can feel especially good to devote yourself to a task or personal interest–to really pour yourself into it and give something your all. In fact, it’s a great way to heal, release tension, and improve your mood, especially after tense days. Someone may be seeking you out for advice and answers. A commitment might be made to a new project, or you might help out a relative or acquaintance. Plans are easy to map out, and you welcome a sense of order and organization. The Moon moves into your work and health sector for a couple of days, and your heart’s in fixing problems and straightening out your life in small yet significant ways.
The Moon’s move into your romance and creativity sector today is likely to animate and colorize your emotions for a couple of days, dear Aquarius. You may very well be smitten with someone or something, and you enjoy spreading the love and happiness around. Even with this playful energy in your life now, discipline is more natural to harness than usual, and you can experience a strong desire to get money matters or business back on track. You’ll want to apply yourself to building a talent or business today, and it can be wonderfully satisfying. In fact, you may very well need a focal point after some chaotic energy this week, finding it to be a lovely way to reduce stress. You can make excellent progress on a career or money-making idea now.
Your attention is drawn to your priorities today, dear Pisces, and it’s an excellent time for working a little harder or for enjoying a stronger sense of purpose or commitment. Reserving time for yourself or your personal projects and initiatives is good for you now–even healing. The Moon moves into your home and family sector today for a couple of days, and this shift, too, suggests tuning out the fluff and focusing on something in particular. This is a more reflective transit that only lasts until Friday, but can serve as an important reminder to make time for your fundamental needs. Emotions tend to settle, especially if you find a project or cause that excites you.
