Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
With today’s Moon transit, dear Aries, you’re certainly in need of some rest and emotional renewal. Revisions made now to projects or your work can be especially beneficial for you down the road. You’re inclined to keep to yourself or require a break from the hustle and bustle. Even so, you are likely to learn something handy through your conversations and connections today. Reaching out to others is favored, although you’re quite content to work on your own as well, making a balance between the two ideal. It’s also a good time for working relationships and problem-solving related to your work or health. You can benefit from others’ input or ideas to jumpstart or inspire your thinking, but ultimately, you’re best off going with your gut today after you process all that you’ve taken in.
A state of “not doing” is just fine today, dear Taurus, and can be more helpful and productive than it first appears. You may need some time to process and think before you return to a situation more refreshed and less burdened. A relaxed mind will be the most effective one today! Still, the Moon is in your solar eleventh house all day so that connecting with others in some way can help fill you emotionally. The key is to keep these things light right now. You’re generating wonderful ideas and drawing meaningful conclusions. In fact, your senses are keen for business and practical matters these days, and taking some time to refresh your mind can help you improve your intuition even further. Giving further thought to issues surrounding career, business, and goals can figure strongly now.
You’re in a forward-looking, expressive, and positive mood, dear Gemini, and you’re in need of fresh emotional experiences. While it can take some time to settle yourself enough to get in touch with your intuition on a matter today, your thinking is ingenious regarding people, goals, and career. While you tend to want to go your own way today, sharing ideas and experiences with others can be especially rewarding. Mentoring and guiding can be satisfying, and you enjoy learning something or sharpening your own skills and knowledge as you do. This is a good day for seeing the big picture, ultimately, but you might begin with doing some analyzing of the details. A meaningful conversation can figure strongly now, but again, you’ll come to the best conclusions after processing everything on your own.
Today is strong for sound thinking and objectivity, dear Cancer, mainly related to your close relationships and your personal psychology with the Sun and Mercury’s connection in your solar eighth house. The chance to have reasonable, fair, and analytical discussions or to think especially logically and objectively about a usually tricky matter can emerge now, and if it does, do take advantage. Applying logic to an emotional topic isn’t always effective or useful, but it is helpful today. Activities that engage your mind are essential for feeling refreshed today. You can make headway with a financial goal now, or there can be new ideas about or insight into a deep relationship. This can be a time for getting to the bottom of a long-standing problem.
You are more emotionally invested in your close relationships today than usual, dear Leo, and the extra attention you bring to them can be highly beneficial. While emotions figure strongly today, you’re also in the position to converse objectively about personal matters, making it a great time to sort through trouble areas in relationships or to address tricky issues. It’s natural for you now to home in and intuit others’ needs, which you can then match with the right kind of support. You’d be wise to seek out company today if it doesn’t find you first! Find a mentally engaging activity to focus on with the Sun and Mercury parallel to one another and both transiting your partnership sector. At the same time, the Moon in your solar eighth house and Neptune strong now suggests you’d also be wise to do some deep, alone-time musing for even further insights.
You’re in a strong position to intuit your way to some meaningful conclusions in your social or emotional world today, dear Virgo, but you’re also thinking especially clearly and objectively along work and health lines. It’s not always this easy to compartmentalize! You might brainstorm or think up ways on your own as to how to better manage and organize your daily life and routines. Working on your responsibilities and getting them out of the way is a priority today, while your heart is especially relationship-focused. In fact, the Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, and the ruler of this sector, Neptune, connects creatively with harmonious Venus, suggesting a real chance to boost the spiritual or devotional side of a key relationship now.
Dreams or visions can be prophetic today, dear Libra, and you can find yourself pleasantly emotional. While you’re inclined to keep some feelings to yourself and relish this privacy, it’s a good time to expand your horizons in some way today. Creative projects can be an area of focus now, as you’d do well with an outlet for expressing your ideas and feelings. This may also apply to a relationship or romance–there is a real tendency to analyze and sort feelings about a project or person. Conversations or thoughts can be in sharp focus now, inspiring and even moving you. While today can be strong for inventive, unusual, and artistic self-expression, you’re also in need of some space, at the end of the day, to process and digest everything. It’s only then when you can draw some valuable and meaningful conclusions.
You have both the intellectual and emotional world working actively in your favor today, dear Scorpio. It’s a good time for speaking about matters of the heart, and then spending some extra time really connecting with your feelings. While you are emotionally inspired and a little moody now, you are also very capable of detaching yourself enough to have rational discussions. Conversations with family can be notable now, with a particular focus on your inner world or family/personal life as topics for further thought, consideration, or discussion. Even so, you’re not finding yourself stuck inside yourself or in the past. In fact, you’re in a good position to think in progressive ways, finding excellent solutions to issues that have been bothering you for some time. You’re looking forward with confidence.
You tend to go with the flow rather than make waves today, dear Sagittarius, seeking a little more emotional space than usual. Even so, it’s a fine time to have useful discussions or analyzing sessions–you simply need to come to your own conclusions at the end of it all. Conversations can really go places, and there can be a resolution to a conflict or a creative new way to interact and connect. Good ideas come from discussions, and so do good feelings! The Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, and this is a signal that you benefit most from doing some rooting and nesting at this time of the lunar month. Centering yourself can do you a world of good now, and feeling safe, secure, and grounded can be the key to getting yourself in the right frame of mind.
There is some terrific energy with you today for getting organized and taking care of business, dear Capricorn, but you’re also in definite need of some time to decompress, diffuse, and detox. Clutter or disorganization can be distracting, whether this is about literal mess or having too many tabs open, and you’d be wise to do some tidying so that you can more peacefully unwind. Mercury is parallel to the Sun, and both bodies are in your money sector, pointing to some special ideas, analysis, or discussions related to your resources in the spotlight now. You can be more objective about your practical affairs than usual as a result. Today, take in, connect, and learn as you do, but then take everything you’ve absorbed and let it play out in a relaxed fashion in your mind for best results. Decisions shouldn’t be rushed right now!
Aim to center yourself and get your bearings today, dear Aquarius, but do also take the opportunity to speak, think, and connect in key ways. With the Moon in your stable solar second house all day, achieving a sense of security and safety is a big priority now. Your emotional focus is rather practical and needs-based with this transit, but you’re also bound to feel a stronger need to analyze, discuss, and play with new ideas than usual since the Sun and Mercury, both in your sign, form a parallel aspect. There can be a sweet release of tension through conversations with others, or involvement with others can bring you down to earth. Problems tend to resolve relatively quickly with this fair and reasonable atmosphere, and it can be empowering to put personal differences behind you.
Your emotions are pronounced today with the Moon in your sign all day, dear Pisces, and with a Venus-Neptune connection, your popularity gets a nice boost. Your emotional needs tend to be in the foreground, but while there is some temptation to fulfill every whim with this transit, the day holds reasonable energy with a strong emphasis on sound thinking, and you can pay just as much attention to what you think as you do to what you feel. You can find easy expression of your feelings in creative or social pursuits today, but with the Sun and Mercury connecting in your solar twelfth house, there can be a real focus on resolving a lingering problem or analyzing a matter from your past. With a little effort, you’re in a favorable position for solving problems and making sense of issues that have previously left you feeling confused or a bit lost.
