Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You’re likely to more confident about responsibilities or realities that have recently emerged in your life, dear Aries. Today pulls you into a quieter emotional place as the Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house. Observation and strategy win the day. You’re in great shape for getting things done, particularly in a quiet or behind-the-scenes kind of way. You’re in a good position to feel more empowered and in charge when it comes to your money, resources, talents, and business matters. A sense that you’re on top of your practical affairs will have you feeling more balanced and confident. While satisfying advances can be made in your work, the general mood today inspires special attention to your inner world, fantasies, and dreams.
You may enjoy a confidence or motivation boost from sharing ideas with others or supporting a friend today, dear Taurus. Be sure to add creative and imaginative pursuits to your day for a healthy escape from the routine. The Moon spends the day in your social sector. The atmosphere is strong for understanding and accepting differences, and getting to a better headspace as a result. Also now, Juno in your sign is moving into harmony with the Sun, and you’re likely to feel more capable and in charge. As well, the Sun’s connection to both Jupiter and Pluto suggest you’re feeling motivated and ready to capitalize on opportunities to advance your interests, learn something meaningful, or take your thinking to a higher level now.
The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, dear Gemini, which can call your responsibilities or goals to mind more than usual. You might be in a position of leader or manager, or otherwise in a noticeable situation, and this can keep you on your toes! Others may be offering their help or support nevertheless. The Moon in Pisces fairly demands some respite from dull routines, and it’s a good time to answer to your needs for a little more imagination in your life. Be gentle with yourself and avoid setting unreasonable expectations. The Sun and Juno form a pleasant trine and help strengthen your emotional world or the conviction of your feelings. Ideally, you’re doing a lot of observing as well as doing now, as there is much to learn through a look at the layers of a given situation.
The Moon transits in harmony with your sign today, dear Cancer, and you’re likely to find satisfying channels for expressing your feelings. With this transit, obstacles seem far more surmountable, or you find ways to move around them that you didn’t recognize before. It’s a fine time for building up strength through your connections to others or the consideration of your long-term plans. You’re inclined to want to feed your need for inspiration now, and you need to have a good sense that you’re learning, growing, and improving through your activities. Stagnation can be difficult to tolerate with the Moon in your adventure sector connecting with Pluto and the Sun today. Rallying up the cooperation of others comes more naturally now, although this can be a little more complicated than it first appears. People in your life seem to be asserting their needs far more insistently than usual.
The Moon will move into a fellow Fire sign tomorrow and connect with both Mars and Venus, also in Fire signs, dear Leo, and you’ll feel comfortable taking action. Today, however, is better for observing, planning, and strategizing. You’re paying a little more attention to your hunches or dreams, and you can gain some wonderful insight into health or work matters. While these matters were intensified for you yesterday, you’re not quite as close to a situation so that you can get a better perspective on it now. In this state, you could dream up new methods of getting your work and duties done more efficiently and satisfyingly. With the Sun’s connections with Jupiter, Pluto, and Juno now, you’re feeling more empowered and balanced. You take more pride in your work, management ability, and performance.
The Moon spends the day in the sign opposite yours, dear Virgo, putting you in the potentially enlightening position for getting a different perspective on your life. Balance and harmony can result from this process, although you could find that you’re doing a lot of weighing to get to that point! Your sense of purpose is building, and you might entirely enjoy developing specialized skills or gaining knowledge and learning something meaningful to you. You seem to shine the brightest now if you have someone to bounce ideas off or to pair up with. Valuable advice is circulating, and you’re particularly able to cut through the unessential to get to the good stuff.
Your ambitions are building and your “to do” list is filling up, dear Libra, and today you can feel particularly motivated to get things done, knowing that an effective and flowing routine may help you achieve your goals. It’s better to work out the details of a plan, or, if the plan itself feels overwhelming, working on small productive projects works best for you now. This way, you don’t feel that you’re wasting time. You can quickly gain more insight into a special project or person today, and now that you feel a little further from a heated situation, you’re in a better place to see its value or to take the lesson from an experience and turn it your advantage.
With the Moon in your creative and romantic sector all day, dear Scorpio, you need room to dream, create, fantasize, and imagine new possibilities. You’re also in a fine position to communicate your feelings or to persuade and delight with what you say as the Moon in your creative sector connects well with the Sun and Pluto, having just aligned in your communications house. Now that you’re focusing a little less on outcomes, exchanging information and enjoying the flow come more naturally. There is also good energy for finding satisfying ways to bring more balance to a friendship or partnership. Healthy give-and-take is more clearly rewarding now, as you feel gently challenged.
You’re moving into an exceptionally creative, romantic cycle, dear Sagittarius, but for today, you need a little more time to center yourself and find your center. January holds wonderfully expressive and natural energy for sharing yourself and your happiness with others. Today, while it’s a more reflective time, you can bring quite a bit of imagination into your personal life. Observations are quite brilliant now, so do take the time to listen and look, especially since you’ll have plenty of opportunities to do and act going forward. Attempting to push to find a resolution to a problem is unlikely to work well, but pulling back from it might. In fact, you could feel quite empowered from getting a better handle on the background details of your life right now.
While you may have been taking a matter (or yourself) especially seriously, dear Capricorn, today you detach just enough to work it all to your advantage. Be selective with what you put your energy into today, and aim to replenish rather than push yourself. Confidence builds in an unrushed, natural way as a result. A hobby or a romance can have a powerful effect on you now, and dedication to something (or someone) you love motivates and drives you. While dabbling and putting your feelers out for new information may seem not especially productive, they can be valuable activities now as you observe, absorb, and digest, whether it helps relax you or informs you on a casual level as you make useful and inspiring discoveries.
You’re seeking out a stronger sense of continuity and security today, dear Aquarius. Although you continue to feel motivated, it’s of a gentler nature today, and this suits you well, inspiring you. You can take a particular interest in your inner world today, and your home and family life may be especially rewarding. Efforts to improve family and home life don’t go unnoticed. You’re in an excellent position to take charge, and your instincts for what should stay and what should go are on target. While you’re in a great place to cooperate with others, you may want to prove to yourself just how much you can accomplish on your own. You may not be especially forthcoming on an emotional level, but this is mainly due to the need for extra time understanding how you feel about a matter.
With the Moon in your sign in supportive aspect to the Sun and Pluto, you’re willing to strike out on your own or express yourself today, dear Pisces. People are putting their trust in you, and this, in turn, motivates you to do your best. You’re not necessarily more emotional than usual, but you’re more in touch with what you’re feeling and this helps you interact with confidence. This, in turn, inspires others to place their faith in you! Conversations with friends or ideas shared with a team or group can be supportive. While you may have been feeling rather emotional or riled up about a matter, you’re gaining just enough perspective on a situation to see where you can take a lesson from the experience. You can also feel particularly good about specialized learning or skills development now, and you want to contribute something of value.
