Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There is some tendency to get caught up with who’s right and who’s wrong today, dear Aries. The Moon spends much of the day in your solar seventh house, and reaching a compromise can be a goal, but sometimes hard to achieve today. There could be some obligations or goals that consume your attention, and the atmosphere can be tense at times as a result. Still, it can be a good day for drawing people to you. You could be feeling more confident about pursuing a relationship, or for making amends with those close to you. It’s not easy to get on the same page now, but you’re willing to try, and others doing their share is good enough for you.
You can be focusing on making improvements and getting chores out of the way today, dear Taurus. There are distractions to manage, especially related to your personal interests. Tensions may very well motivate you to refine your plans. Feeling some forward movement helps to fuel your fire to make constructive changes. A work or research task can be motivating, as you’re up for a gentle challenge. Even so, you could find yourself rather sensitive to problems and imbalances today, and it can be difficult but far from impossible to get your head back into the game.
Try not to give in to the temptation to rush things today, dear Gemini, as you may need a bit of time for positive developments to blossom. Emotions and actions tend to work in harmony today, and this helps, but distractions are plenty, and obligations pressing. Your mood is mostly generous, but it can be hard to escape certain realities with the Moon’s square to Saturn. It’s better to weigh options rather than push the bigger decisions today. Still, try your best not to overthink things. Aim to take care of your responsibilities first, as this can help free you up. Spreading your energy and attention around can be too chaotic now.
Much is going on under the hood today, dear Cancer. You’re more introspective until later today when the Moon moves into Scorpio and your sector of sharing your joy. Until then, you’re conserving energy, but it’s not the easiest day to rest up. It may be challenging but worthwhile to tune out distractions and find some time for yourself. Even so, you might find that organizing your home or workspace, if you pace yourself, can be relaxing and productive at the same time. Aim to enjoy the moment rather than scatter your energy today for the best results. Avoid wasting your energy on issues that you can’t change.
There can be some pressure to succeed and achieve today, dear Leo, that are better ignored or saved for a better day. There are times when following your ambition gets you places. Other times, like today, your attention is so divided that it’s best to handle other life departments first. It’s a good idea to pace yourself and allow your plans to evolve. You might aim to get to a peaceful state of busy. It’s a fine time to reach out to others, learn something new, or challenge yourself creatively. You are drawn to interesting and smart people today, and you can be brilliant at resolving others’ problems.
There is some tendency to weigh the pros and cons of a matter way too much, dear Virgo, when stepping back for a bit from a problem will help refresh you. The Moon spends much of the day in your stable solar second house, and you’re just not ready to jump into a decision. Still, agonizing over one is not your favorite place to be, either. You might instead aim for a comfortable state of busy today, and the Moon’s harmony with Mars helps you do just that. Attention to household needs can be satisfying and productive, even if it’s not your most pressing concern today. Grounding yourself can be most rewarding.
The Moon in your sign much of the day pushes your emotional needs closer to the surface, dear Libra. The desire to act on your feelings is strong. Still, it’s not always easy to find the right channels for expressing yourself today. Watch that you don’t present yourself in a hurried way, as it can give others the wrong impression. Pressures related to the household or family can be stronger than usual, and it can be highly distracting. You may need to do some compartmentalizing for best results now. Getting responsibilities out of the way makes it easier to do the rest of your life with more confidence. There is fresh energy with you for personal interests, learning, studies, and communications, as well as rising enthusiasm for the challenges of learning something new.
While you’re usually quite strategic, dear Scorpio, today’s energies can lead to speaking on a matter too soon. This is likely to do with distractions and some ambivalence, which is not your ideal state of mind. You may need a bit more time to sharpen your ideas or tighten your plans, and it’s probably best to wait for drawing conclusions. Later today, the Moon enters your sign, and while this shift doesn’t help with patience, it does support more clarity. Until then, some sluggishness or indecision is likely. Still, daydreaming can be productive, and you can work with your desire to manage your resources to do great things, or at the least, to make fabulous plans to do so.
It’s not an ideal time for concentration or focus, dear Sagittarius. While distractions are likely, you may simply need some quiet moments to center yourself. Friends can be a source of comfort today. You can feel connected emotionally and spiritually with someone special, which can be wonderful motivation. The Moon in your social sector much of the day does emphasize your need to unwind in good company. Still, there are reminders of the need to fulfill an obligation or to be frugal today that can’t entirely be ignored. Adjustments may be necessary, but you need to pace yourself before jumping to make edits since some things are better left alone.
Plans that seem promising may need some adjustments, dear Capricorn, or can be subject to delays. This isn’t necessarily about giving things up since your enthusiasm is building. Instead, some more refinements can help you greatly now. For now, Mars is still in the sign just behind yours, and this can be considered a signal that you may not be quite ready for moving forward. In just a few days, Mars will enter Capricorn, and you’ll have more confidence. On the same day, however, Mercury will turn retrograde, so do give yourself some wiggle room and try not to expect everything to run on schedule. You can feel strongly about handling your work or obligations today, even if it isn’t straightforward to turn all of your attention to your goals.
Conditions are not perfect for seeing eye to eye with one another today, dear Aquarius, but it seems people are trying, and that’s good enough for you. In fact, there can be some flowing moments, and teaching and learning come quite naturally. Sharing aesthetic pleasures, ideas, and tastes can promote bonding in friendships, and so can shared activities–it may be better to be active with one another, or excess energy can lead to disagreements. Responsibilities seem to loom in spots today, but you’re ready to rise above delays and inconveniences. Weighing pros and cons is the inclination now, and it’s best not to go too far with this, as overthinking is where things become overly complicated.
Today’s energies are good for gently challenging yourself, dear Pisces, and for motivation. Still, imbalances are glaring and can even be a focal point that distracts you from constructive activities. Watch this, as it can keep you in an unnecessary state of discontent or limbo. Take things step by step for best results, and consider that if timing is off in your relationships, it may be a superficial problem, not necessarily a symptom of something deeper. Overthinking things doesn’t do you any favors now. Much of the day, the Moon is in your intimacy sector, and it makes sense to pay closer attention to what’s on the inside. However, the Moon later enters your spirit sector, and it’s appropriate to turn things around, focusing more on a goal than on the process. This transit stirs your motivation levels.
