Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Moon spends the day in your sector of long-term goals and reputation, dear Aries, joining with Jupiter in this area of your solar chart. You want to–and may very well–enjoy what you’re doing, and you’re seeking inspiration. Opportunities to move toward your goals can emerge in pleasing ways that can even feel a bit magical. A Jupiter-Neptune sextile happening now will influence your life until October and is particularly strong right now. You may benefit from past work, good deeds, and experience, particularly in your profession. While you’re “going hard” in some areas of your life, this transit helps you find moments to detox, relax, decompress, and detach. It also reminds you of the value of feeding your spirit, imagination, or romantic needs alongside your more worldly pursuits. As you pay more attention to your mental and emotional health, you feel stronger in your career, or you experience more meaningfulness and purpose in your responsibilities. This is a wonderful time for bringing more imagination and compassion to your work, as well as having more faith in life.
Even with Mercury retrograde, this is a beautiful day for communications for you, dear Taurus. The Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit, higher learning, and adventure, joining with optimistic Jupiter, and harmonizing with Neptune in your social sector. While you’ve done some hard thinking recently, a Jupiter-Neptune influence is now swooping in to inspire you. This is a good time for instruction, guidance, advice, teaching, and sharing ideas. Your attitude is positive, and exceptional support can come from friends and associations. You’re inspired to grow, improve, explore, discover, and move outside of your comfort zone.
