Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The major key to success is to know yourself today, dear Aries. Tap into what you truly want, as impatience or restlessness can otherwise lead to rash decisions that you may regret later on. Use the extra energy that is available to you now for something reasonable and productive. Don’t take on too much for tomorrow just because you think you can handle it today since it’s way too easy to misjudge ourselves right now. Otherwise, this is a potentially excellent time for doing a little extra research, gaining support or advantage, or discovering a loophole that helps you out, possibly leading to a happy sigh of relief.
With Mars in your sign these days, dear Taurus, there can be a lot on your mind — and on your plate! You may need to stretch your energy and attention to accomplish everything you need and want to do. There can be some level of disorder in your personal life that distracts you from the tasks at hand today. Opinions can clash, and others seem to interrupt you at every turn! However, you’re also in a great position to enjoy some camaraderie if you let things unfold a little more naturally. Giving the floor to someone else in your life or allowing them to do the driving just for a bit can be just what you need to gain some perspective or to catch your breath. You might build faith in a relationship with a healthy dose of acceptance and appreciation.
While the day is potentially beautiful for some keen attention to your practical affairs, dear Gemini, some inner restlessness can lead to overindulgence or a vague feeling of dissatisfaction. Your desire for privacy or alone time may be doing battle with your need for companionship, and this can lead to giving off mixed signals with others who may be just as confused as you! However, today’s energies are quite useful for making business or career connections that are not only practical but also social opportunities. Appreciating what you already have may not be intuitive as you begin the day, but as the day progresses, you recognize that a comfortable pace seems to be far more productive than a hurried one.
Energies are beautiful for flowing along today, dear Cancer, and taking the path of least resistance is just fine from time to time. Even so, there can be some moodiness and possibly poor judgment when it comes to possessions, valuables, or money early today. As such, it may be best to avoid hasty decisions that are better saved for a time when you’re thinking more clearly. As the day advances, you’re likely to feel more and more in your element. The Moon transits in harmony to your sign and connects you with your romantic or creative side. The desire to make something special–or to be seen as special in someone’s eyes–is in full force now.
You are enthusiastic these days, dear Leo, particularly about your career or long-term goals. However, there is some inclination to go to excess or to rush something that needs a little more time to unfold. You could find yourself defending a belief or opinion, or becoming frustrated at a potential problem, when your energies are probably better used elsewhere. It’s crucial that you avoid overreaching and taking on more than you can reasonably handle. Focus on long-range plans, and take some extra time for yourself, if possible, to recoup. With the Moon’s transit of your home and family sector today, you’re in great shape for doing just that if you so choose. Slowing down is not only good for you now, but it might also lead you to gain a better understanding of a situation.
You’re in a good position to bond with someone special through openness and willingness to listen, learn, and improve today, dear Virgo. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, stimulating your curiosity, and forms some comfortable aspects that help you find satisfying channels for doing so. Someone in your life may introduce you to a new interest or come up with an idea that excites you. Your best qualities seem to be emphasized through your relationships. However, you tend to jump to defend your convictions, someone, or something today when it may be better to wait to gain the whole story or a broader perspective of the matter. You could be feeling so strongly about an idea that you’re quick to draw conclusions, but a wait-and-see approach is more likely to work in your favor right now.
The day holds some wonderfully comfortable energy for personal enjoyment, dear Libra, as well as the potential to tap into a new understanding of your finances or a business situation. Even so, relationships can be a bit strained due to some impatience. While tensions are normal and even healthy in your interactions with friends and partners, overall your connections should be encouraging and empowering, so it makes sense if the balance is off to look for ways to settle things. Regardless of your motivation and enthusiasm today, there may be plenty of distractions so that prioritizing early on makes the most sense. You won’t want to overlook today’s opportunities for improving your lot in life.
The Moon is in your sign all day, dear Scorpio, and it’s playing well with others! This puts you in a good place to enjoy and express your feelings comfortably. For the most part, others seem to let you do your thing, and they may very well admire you as you do so. There can be some minor frustration today, however, as you can get wind that some plans are not coming together as you expected. Aim to be as patient as possible, because your perceptions of the matter may be skewed by a feeling that things should be completed more quickly than they actually need. Don’t push now for best results, but do take note of the desire to make improvements that are stirring inside. Choose to tap into the pleasing, flowing, healing energy permeating much of the day.
Today’s energies are particularly good for your emotional life, dear Sagittarius, and you’re likely to feel exceptionally comfortable in your inner world now! Bringing more harmony to your home environment is a definite need, and you can find ways to do so today. Even so, there can be some tension and indecision in other areas of life. Avoid overreaching with work and health endeavors. While you’re more ambitious or motivated in these areas this month, you’re currently in need of some personal space and rest, even if it’s only a short breather or break so that you can get back into the game refreshed and more focused.
The Moon is moving in harmony with your sign today, dear Capricorn, and connects with your planetary ruler harmoniously. As a result, you can feel very much in your element. Your manner is warm and approachable today. It’s best to avoid making executive decisions, as you’re better off teaming up with someone special when considering your options just for now. Besides, you often take on a little too much, and it can be nice to share the load. There is some tendency to want to shake things up this week, and if it goes unrecognized, rash decisions might result. It’s best to tap into any feelings of discontent so that you can harness the energy to make improvements. Your creative impulses are active these days, and it’s very likely that you need a creative challenge.
The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, dear Aquarius, and you’re inclined to tune into your ambitious side or to check in with your current goals. While this is a practical theme, you’re also in a good position to understand your feelings a little better — your heart is open and you’re ready to put some of your fears behind you. The desire to take action is strong today, but if it’s not paired with a viable plan, you could merely feel frustrated or restless. An important person in your life could be similarly tense or otherwise on edge. If you team up and aim to direct excess energy into constructive channels, you can go far, however. Keep yourself busy for best results now!
People in your life can be a little hard to read today, dear Pisces, but this shouldn’t distract you too much. In fact, insecurities identified and shared can lead to greater bonding. As well, circumstances seem to magically conspire to put you in a favorable light now as the Moon communicates well with your sign and your planetary ruler. There can be good negotiating and relating experiences, and despite some prompts to make improvements that can be slightly stressful, overall you enjoy the kind of energy that doesn’t demand attention, but gets it anyhow. Expressing yourself creatively comes naturally. What you should watch for most is impulsiveness with your communications which can lead to unnecessary misunderstandings.
