Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Taking a somewhat intellectual or objective approach to matters that are usually more serious or that run deep can be quite useful today, dear Aries. Your need to observe and reflect is stronger than usual, and processing your feelings and recent events is important at this time of the lunar month. Rather than pushing forward with new activities, take the time to explore and ponder things today. You’ll make better decisions and choices later if you take some time to understand yourself and the people around you better. Aim to get a new take on a situation. You’re in superior shape for planning and strategy today.
You’re likely to enjoy fresh and open conversations or a new and improved outlook on life today, dear Taurus. You’re in particularly good shape for learning a few things through your interactions with a significant other. The need to support or entertain others is in the forefront today, and it can be emotionally refreshing to put the focus on someone. You are also looking for ways to spread your wings in some way today, as your desire to explore new ideas and experience new activities is strong.
Background and detail work can thrive today, dear Gemini. A reflective frame of mind is likely, although others are cooperative and mostly helpful. You have a keener sense of your priorities and might easily find solutions to problems or come across the information you need. Something works out to be easier than you previously imagined today. With the Moon transiting your solar sixth house today and most of tomorrow, you can have a strong desire to help or to be of service, and you’re especially adept at finding flaws and new layers of a situation. It can be engaging as you piece things together. Just for now, you’re in the best shape if you focus on the details or finer points of a plan rather than attempting to envision the big picture. Conversations can lead to new ideas or methods of getting things done.
While you have a real independent spirit today, dear Cancer, it’s a fine time for benefiting from feedback that helps you round out a decision with the right balance of imagination and practicality. You seem to bring out the best in someone, and they in you today. The Moon spends today and most of tomorrow in your sector of joy, recreation, love, and self-expression. It’s a time for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time, pastimes, and relationships. It’s a strong day for communications, although Mercury is very near to its retrograde cycle (it begins on the 16th), and some ideas emerging today may need rethinking later.
You might decide to let a friend in on an idea or situation today, and you can feel great that you did, dear Leo. Previously puzzling situations can clear up. It’s a good day for hashing out problems or engaging in casual conversations that are refreshingly objective and helpful. The Moon spends today and most of tomorrow in your sector of home and heart, which does signal a need to center yourself. It’s a good time to tone things down and get into an easygoing, pleasant frame of mind. If you let the pace around you set your own pace, you’re likely to feel more in tune with others and your intuition. You can arrive at new ideas for improving home, work, or health with today’s energies.
There can be something handy to learn through your communications and networks today, dear Virgo, or through information and news that comes in. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector and harmonizes with intellectuals Jupiter and Mercury, boosting your observational abilities even further. You might learn valuable tricks, tips, or skills that positively impact your life, or this can simply be about enjoying what you learn and hear. There seems to be a natural flow of creativity, and cooperation comes more readily than usual. It can feel wonderful to share the details of your day with someone special. A small change in your life or a pleasant surprise can boost your mood and outlook today.
Emotions tend to level out with the Moon spending the day in your solar second house, dear Libra. You focus more on your physical world and comfort needs than usual. An uneventful day may be just what you need to ground and center yourself! Aim to appreciate and even savor the little things before life speeds up again. Pleasant and fun communications can add some liveliness to your life without breaking the calm. You’re giving more thought to how you can improve your work, health, or finances. Today’s energies favor straightforward, moderate moves rather than bold ones. A step-by-step approach to resolving problems is particularly reassuring at the moment. You might stumble upon helpful ideas and methods for boosting comfort in your home or for developing healthier routines and habits.
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Scorpio, and as it harmonizes with both Mercury and Jupiter, it’s a day of learning something special. You can feel more connected and engaged than usual. You can have a bit of fun, as these transits boost your confidence and suggest vibrant, lively communications. You’re in particularly good shape for shared activities, or a friend may help you arrive at a creative idea. As well, others can be especially attracted to your manner of expressing yourself today. Your intuitive sense of opportunities is on the mark.
If you can manage it today, dear Sagittarius, you might want to indulge in some downtime or alone time. The Moon is just behind your sign all day today and most of tomorrow, suggesting it’s best to enjoy a low profile or some anonymity. This way, you can renew and restore yourself emotionally speaking. It’s a fine time of the month to clear mental clutter and release pressure, perhaps by laying some things to rest. Your powers of observation are particularly strong as you do so, and this helps you see things you might normally miss on busier, more scattered days. Family or home life can be lively and helpful. There is nice energy with you for talking things through with loved ones. Feeling confident that what you already have is what you need can help you to give your best in the coming days. Look for ways to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt to boost things even further.
You can feel far more interactive than usual today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon in your social sector connecting with intellectual Jupiter and Mercury! You may be thinking or talking about positive goals, dreams, and wishes now. Straightforwardly expressing yourself is much appreciated and favored under these transits. Following a particular brainwave or idea can be satisfying and interesting. You might crave intellectual companionship or stimulation now, so take the time to enjoy conversations with people around you if possible. New or different ways of expressing yourself can emerge, and it’s a fine time to embrace activities with a friend or team, or simply to explore new options and ideas on your own. The focus is on diversifying for best results today.
The Moon spends the day in your sector of career and responsibilities, dear Aquarius. It harmonizes with Jupiter and Mercury, pointing to the chance to understand your work or goals more clearly. It’s also a fine day for getting a new perspective on your reputation and how others see you and your performance. The eye is on making improvements, and it’s likely to be a positive focus today. You appreciate meaningful tasks more than frivolous ones right now. You can arrive at wonderful business-related strategies and gain a greater understanding of trends, or you might learn something that helps further your interests. Good energy is with you for interesting ideas and conversations, and someone could be speaking quite highly of you.
You seek engaging experiences and a break from the routine today, dear Pisces. Even a small change of scenery can be most welcome with the Moon spending today and most of tomorrow in your sector of adventure, spirit, and outlook. An intellectual interest or change can suffice and is quite likely with the Moon’s connections to Mercury and Jupiter today. Writing, sharing, or educational matters can flow nicely. Conversations and social interactions can be pleasing, informative, and even inspiring. You tend to focus on goals related to long-term fulfillment, happiness, and enjoyment. Today is suitable for both independence and companionship.
