Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There has been a stronger focus on the mental world in the last couple of days, dear Aries, and with the Moon’s move into Cancer today, you begin to crave more downtime. You have a greater need for security and familiarity now, and you’re also willing to put effort into pursuing these things with Mars newly energizing your resources sector. You’re motivated to make your life more comfortable and to enjoy family or domestic life more completely. It’s a potentially excellent time for tapping into deeper needs, desires, and wants. It’s a beautiful time for comfortably working on any recent money-making or business project at a satisfying pace. Connecting with loved ones can be in focus.
You are likely to get a whole lot done today if you apply yourself, dear Taurus, as the Moon heads into your busy third house and engages with Mars in your sign. Mind you, there is some tendency to spread your attention around, and this can serve you well at this time. You can be exceptionally resourceful, and while you’re in a friendly mood, you seem to achieve the most independently today. A bit of healthy competition might motivate you now, and you’re drawn to engaging activities. You’re expressing yourself with intention. With your action-oriented frame of mind, you can be especially interested in starting something new or building upon a fabulous idea. Something you learn or come across can excite your curiosity now. Today is good for getting the word out, making connections, and exploring a new interest or idea.
The Moon moves out of your sign today, dear Gemini, and you can feel a little more emotionally settled but still quite action-oriented. You are highly motivated to be productive, and extraordinarily resourceful. While your needs for steadiness and comfort are strong with this transit, you’re ready to pursue these things determinedly. A relationship, joy, or creature comfort can be the focus. You could very well feel a stronger desire to make or spend money now! Even so, it feels right now that you are more in control of your moods as opposed to feeling at their mercy. There can be a pleasant focus on recycling, saving, or repairing, and a good buy is also possible. Activities that reinforce your connection to the “here and now” are a fine draw.
The Moon moves into your sign and then quickly engages with Mars today, dear Cancer, and you’re especially noticeable — vibrantly so! Energies now can serve as motivation to tackle a big project or refine one that you’ve already set into motion. Asserting yourself is natural now, and goes over very well. It’s an excellent time for motivation and focus. Activities related to networking and innovative work can fare particularly well, and they can be pleasantly lively. You’re focused on dealing with unmet needs with the Moon in your sign for a couple of days, but you’re also getting back in the game. You are particularly resourceful and dynamic now. While self-directed activities fare the best today, gaining others’ cooperation is a piece of cake at the moment.
This is the time of the lunar month for an emotional “reset” as the Moon enters your sector of rest, reflection, and privacy for a couple of days, dear Leo. Taking a break, examining the past, and reorienting yourself as you prepare for a new beginning may be in focus now. Even so, the Moon connects to fireball Mars today, and while you’re going under the radar in some way, you’re also quite focused on your goals and ambitions. In fact, you can make significant progress in business and practical affairs. You simply need a break from situations that drain you emotionally as you rebuild energy on an emotional level. Look for opportunities for some high-quality unwinding or letting go.
With the Moon’s move into the sign of Cancer and your solar eleventh house today, dear Virgo, you may want to kick back and enjoy yourself, but you won’t be kicking back too much! The Moon connects with energetic Mars, pointing to a pleasantly busy, engaged time. You’re likely to enjoy sharing your ideas and good company, more so than usual. The day should be spirited and hold some room for exploration and discovery, even if this only happens on a mental level. You can be feeling energized by team efforts and activities with others, or cooperative activities that break the routine, boost your spirits, and/or expand your mind. Conversations can lift your spirits and inspire exciting new ideas and plans.
With the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart today, dear Libra, you’re emotionally geared up to take care of business, and as it connects with Mars, you’re quite fearless about tackling challenges. This lunar cycle lasts only two days and emphasizes responsibilities, competency, and duty. This is the time of the month for checking in with your goals and performance. You can be pleasantly productive today, and you have a rather competent air about you that compels others to follow your lead. You’re active today, but you’re also pacing yourself well, and this feels right. You’ll find that drawing upon the strength of your feelings to be productive and take the initiative works wonderfully now.
You might especially enjoy activities that help you get closer to a partner or special someone today, dear Scorpio. Grab any opportunity that arises that might pull you out of your usual routine, and that adds a dash of adventure to your life, as the Moon heads into your solar ninth house–the sector of your chart that encourages you to expand, learn new things, and feed your spirit. Today’s Moon connects with Mars, newly in your partnership sector, and this connection can prompt some extra excitement in a key relationship. You’re in the mood for a change of scenery and refreshing activities today, and natural discoveries and spontaneity figure strongly.
With Mars now in your solar sixth house, dear Sagittarius, you’re in touch with your desire to produce and organize, and today, you’re likely to gravitate towards activities that improve your life in small ways. It’s a time for feeling pleasantly stimulated and motivated. It’s easy to find something exciting and engaging to pour your energy into even if you’re doing things solo now. Your emotions are intense but contained as the Moon heads into your solar eighth house for a couple of days, and you’re particularly resourceful right now. In fact, you can make pretty much any situation work your way. Your willingness to plumb the depths of a matter can work to your advantage, particularly if you apply this passion to something you love or a project that you’ve recently put off.
With the Moon’s move into your partnership sector today, dear Capricorn, you’re looking for interactive and fun activities. The Moon connects with Mars in your house of recreation and romance, making it a great time to enjoy good company, a crush or attraction, or an exciting game. Others have a positive influence on you, gently motivating you to take action or do something fun and interesting that you may not have felt motivated to do otherwise. You’re inclined to seek out company, and others notice and seek you out in turn. You have more than usual courage and a strong sense of adventure now. While this is mostly about enjoying and expressing yourself, it’s also a time when others’ input can be particularly useful.
With the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house and the sign of Cancer today, dear Aquarius, putting in the effort towards something productive, however big or small, is what satisfies most. Fortunately, the Moon connects with Mars, helping with the motivation factor. It may be that gaining the cooperation of loved ones comes naturally now, but it can also benefit you to work solo and concentrate on the task at hand. You can be particularly productive on a home, work, or family matter/project. It’s a good time to put something in order, whether it’s a drawer, paperwork, or a closet, with the bonus that it can also help you unclutter your mind. You’re striving towards a more engaged and healthier lifestyle.
With Mars’ recent move into your solar third house, dear Pisces, you can enjoy a stronger sense of purpose and vision as well as increased enthusiasm for pursuing studies or projects. This is a day for an easy flow of creativity and pleasing communications as the Moon moves into your sector of joy and then connects happily with Mars. Your actions and your emotions are in harmony right now, and this helps you in most every life department in some shape or form. You can find yourself drawn to activities that entertain and offer you a fun and healthy challenge. There may be a pleasant buzz or added sizzle in a love relationship now, especially on a mental level. Communications can be spicy, exciting, and motivating, and passionate interest in what you’re doing is attractive to others.
