Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Moon heads into your solar eighth house for a couple of days, dear Aries, and you’re ready to sink your teeth into something substantial. A Mercury-Pluto aspect today helps you find the perfect project or pursuit. You feel more directed, and you can get useful insight into what to eliminate in your life that will help you move forward. You have more conviction about your ideas and perceptions right now. Information coming in can certainly be helpful, and may even be purging and healing. It’s a good time for communicating your ideas persuasively or for researching a matter a little more thoroughly. Influences today help you slow down and see the value of strategy, although with Mars in hard aspect to Jupiter now, you can battle some restlessness.
There can be some tension or restlessness to deal with today, dear Taurus, but ultimately, you see the value of coming to conclusions slowly, or for going at life more deliberately and calmly. Obstacles can motivate you to improve your life in crucial ways, and you’re a little braver than usual about sharing private matters, or others are trusting you with confidential information. Something previously hidden might emerge now, and it’s enlightening! Communications, especially with friends, are deep or rewarding. This energy might instead play out with your own thoughts and musings, which are taking you to exciting places! It’s a fine time for discovering new layers of a situation.
The Moon moves into your work and health sector today, dear Gemini, and will stick around there for a couple of days, putting you in the perfect frame of mind to set things right. With Mercury and Pluto in harmony today, you are using your resources intelligently. It’s a good time for developing strategies, making plans, and digging deeply into a matter to find out a whole lot more about it. It’s all about the details today! They’re not only interesting, but they can also be valuable. You uncover important facts that you overlooked in the past. You’re more aware of–and intrigued by–uncharted territories and all that may be hidden, taboo, or secret. You could be seeing private matters on a whole new level, possibly finding an opening where you thought there was a dead end. Rushing through decisions is not advised right now, however.
The Moon moves into your sector of play and joy for a couple of days, dear Cancer, getting you in the mood to share, express, and enjoy yourself. While pushing the boundaries just a bit makes sense now, it’s best not to take too many risks. Helping you in this department is a Mercury-Pluto aspect. With it, you’re in the right frame of mind for setting goals, rules, and limits, as well as for gaining new insights into special people in your life. Conversations can be very enlightening, particularly those that address philosophical concerns and the future. You have a little more courage to face and acknowledge the truth, and you’re ready to embrace it. You’re focused on what’s substantial, and you have far less concern about the extras, making it an excellent time for meaningful work.
Taking care of details, getting organized, and learning new things can be in focus today, dear Leo, and successful. Efforts towards achieving your health and fitness goals may prosper, and so can investigations or research. Important conversations that help clarify a matter, set rules, or revolve around making goals for the future are possible now, and the key is patience! While some influences can stir restlessness now, if you tune into the genius of today’s Mercury-Pluto aspect, you’re likely to see a new layer to a situation and feel better off for it. The Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, and you benefit from some downtime, which puts you in the perfect state of mind to gain a new perspective.
Competition can motivate you to improve your game, dear Virgo, but it can also make you feel so much pressure that you back down, so you need it in smaller doses! Fortunately today, you’re feeling gently motivated to improve your life, and it feels quite good. Your ruler, Mercury, connects cooperatively with Pluto, and you can be quite determined to dig a little more deeply into a topic. It may very well be a strong time for romantic matters or relationships with children. You benefit from shared activities or conversations about a long-standing issue. It’s also a good time for creative projects and hobbies, for which you are exceptionally motivated and focused. Collaboration is highly favored today. You might decide to get your affairs into order or set goals on less practical matters in your life, including romantic and creative ones. The desire to put something behind you is strong, so if you know of something that you need to let go of to move your life forward, now is an excellent time to cut ties.
Working on your home, health, or personal life might be on your mind right now, dear Libra, and this may involve getting rid of things you no longer need. Fortunately, it’s easier than usual to see what can go in the name of progress with a Mercury-Pluto aspect active today. You can also feel especially motivated to work hard to boost your family income or comfort and your ability to recreate your home living environment. On another level, you may be working on an emotional problem and identifying which attitudes or preoccupations that are holding you back from getting over an obstacle. After perhaps a bit of restlessness, it’s a great day for getting organized, so do your best not to allow distractions to get in your way. There is a useful focus on getting the details right today, and every bit counts. The Moon’s move out of your sign and into your resources sector is another helpful nudge towards managing things calmly, patiently, and with a practical mindset.
There is some tendency for too-quick decisions today, dear Scorpio, with the Moon’s move into your sign — an impulsive transit — and its opposition to Mars. However, you benefit from a Mercury-Pluto transit that helps even you out. Yes, your feelings are heightened today, but you’re also willing to put in extra effort where it’s due. Pluto is your perceptive, strategic planetary ruler, and it’s helping you sort things out and arrive at useful insights. You’re in a most excellent position for getting your message across and for winning a receptive audience if you so desire. Communications and learning endeavors are likely to be especially successful right now. It’s a great time for gaining a mental advantage, primarily as you now see what has been in your way!
The Moon heads into your hidden sector today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re likely to feel the need to take a little rest from the usual pace of your life for a couple of days. You’re also ready to read between the lines and look for hidden truths or get to the heart of a situation as Mercury and Pluto connect. You are particularly insightful about your money situation today, and you can be quite prudent when mapping out a game plan or budget. You are drawn to the most critical details of a business project, and judgment is sharp as a result. You’re likely to envision ways of making the best or the most of a situation. You could also have an eye-opening conversation with a partner or family member, or you could be boosting your home life with a practical improvement or item that makes your life just a little better. This is a time for clearing the decks in some manner.
There can be some tendency to fret or pine for something bigger and better today, dear Capricorn, but a Mercury-Pluto aspect today helps establish a more deliberate and comfortable pace. Conversations can lead you into deep waters today. The information you receive or a friend’s insight might open you up to new ways of looking at things, and in a most positive way! You are open to changing your habits if it means making improvements. The Moon moves into harmony with your sign today and brings a more natural flow to your feelings, or at least, less resistance. This can feel like an emotional “unblocking.” You may get the chance to clarify yourself to someone, which feels good. It’s also a fine time to take the lead with your ideas and plans.
The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Aquarius, and with the help of a Mercury-Pluto sextile, you can feel a strong desire to sort things out, get organized, and take care of business. You have a solid sense of what you need to change, get rid of, or adjust so that you can move forward. You’re itching to get to the truth or heart of a situation, and as a result, you may not have much patience for frivolous or superficial conversations for now. It’s an excellent time for making plans and strategies or schedules, and for researching or investigating your options. While there is a restless influence also in force today, you’ll find it easy to bounce back or turn a situation around to your advantage. This is about building up your mental strength and a patient, positive mindset.
The Moon moves into harmony with your sign for a couple of days, dear Pisces, and this can help things flow along. With Mercury in harmony with Pluto as well now, your sense of personal purpose is enhanced through the support and backing of someone or people important to you. An opportunity can arise to gain additional understanding of yourself, others, and your situation. It would help today to listen intently while resolving to be honest with yourself. A friend is likely to be your emotional anchor now. Alternatively, there can be a missing piece of a puzzle appearing today that aids decision-making and overall clarity. Your communications come across well, in part because your convictions are so very strong.
