Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Today’s energies are smooth, dear Aries, and also stimulate your imagination. You can gain helpful insight into professional or life path goals and projects by letting your mind wander and your imagination free. This is not about logical or rote thinking, however, with Mercury sextile Neptune. You’re in a better place for intuitive thinking and connecting through mental chemistry now. Conversations about goals, big moves or strategies, and business can be fruitful. An open and tolerant mindset can get you to the right places, or there can be exceptionally creative exchanges. The Moon spends part of the day in your sign, enlivening your emotions and putting you in active touch with your needs, and the other part in your resources sector, drawing out your practical side.
After making important goals, connections, and realizations in recent days, dear Taurus, you’ll especially enjoy the benefits of today’s Mercury-Neptune sextile. The energies of this transit tend to smooth over the rough edges of your life in subtle but happy ways, and a soothing or inspiring conversation may be part of this. It’s a good time for dreaming up motivating plans and ideas. Discussions tend to lead in the right directions, even though they may not be particularly structured. In fact, deviations tend to engage the imagination in wonderful ways. Interactions can be supportive. Even the smallest gestures go a long way now, so be sure to reach out. Brainstorming or networking can lead to bright ideas or solutions to predicaments. While you begin the day in a somewhat retiring mood, after the Moon enters your sign today, you crave active connections to the world around you.
You’re likely to feel like you’re flowing along rather than fighting your way through your day, dear Gemini, as Mercury and Neptune form a sextile now. You’re feeling especially comfortable in your own skin, and this ease encourages your imagination to flow in supportive ways. Patience is the key now. There may be an absorbing mystery to solve or a revealing conversation to enjoy with Mercury in your solar eighth house. Dreams of the ideal profession or an exciting direction can inspire you now. Your powers of imagination and creative envisioning are excellent under this influence. You might solve a puzzling problem organically or with little or no effort, as this can be more of a moment of an epiphany than the result of hard thinking. Self-expression is comfortable and open. You may stumble upon or uncover something that has been missing, lost, or hidden.
While yesterday may have been a time of thinking in extremes, dear Cancer, today you’re gaining perspective, and it feels comforting. Energies are good for making connections and enjoying imaginative conversations. Details are less important to you than the overall meaning right now with Mercury sextile Neptune. Interactions with others are likely to be comforting and conversations or gestures may even be healing. They can certainly be a little off the beaten track, and your curiosity is piqued. Efforts towards making peace and accepting one another can be in focus and successful. Sharing varied viewpoints with someone can be especially rewarding — there’s something valuable to learn with an open mind today. The Moon’s move into your sector of community is another sign that you’re loosening up now.
While your mind has been taking you up and down recently, dear Leo, today you benefit from relaxing your thinking as Mercury and Neptune form a sextile. This is good energy for letting your imagination take you to inspiring places. This may involve keeping yourself busy but doing something soothing that you truly enjoy as you do since Mercury is still transiting your work and health sector, and you may experience a form of meditation in motion. Resolving a tricky emotional problem or situation can be part of the picture. Intimate relationships can thrive through conversations or gestures. Keep your mind, and your options, open today for best results. Discussions can be accepting but also gently stimulating, and intuition can lead you to the right information.
While recent days may have found you thinking in extremes or had you mentally all over the place, dear Virgo, you benefit from perspective today. It’s easier to relax your thinking and let your imagination go. The day tends to promote increased ease with, or acceptance of, your current circumstances as Mercury and Neptune form a sextile. You might have a mind-opening experience as you’re exposed to unusual and different perspectives. As well, when these two planets connect, you often find yourself in agreement with a significant someone in your life, and it feels good to be on the same page. The day also plays well to your needs for relaxation, especially after the Moon enters Taurus and your adventure sector. An alternative look at a situation can be fascinating. Understanding and compassion are in focus and the best way to open doors right now.
Especially welcome after mental ups and downs, Mercury and Neptune form a sextile today, dear Libra, and there’s good energy available for wrapping your mind around a mystery or other mental activity that is both enjoyable and absorbing. Alternatively, relaxing your mind can take another form altogether now, but the result is the same — you’re in good shape for seeing a new side of a situation. You’re in an excellent position to excel with anything that requires imagination or that can benefit from a step back from hard thinking. There can be something meaningful to learn from or about family or home matters. It’s easier to open up and enjoy conversations with the current themes, as there is little or no pressure to be accurate or on the ball.
Especially useful after some tense thinking, a Mercury-Neptune aspect engages your imagination, dear Scorpio, and is strongly creative as well as patient. This transit encourages you to unwind and enjoy yourself. It’s also powerful for conversations that inspire. You have excellent support for concentrating on pet projects, studies, or creative pursuits. You may want to pull yourself away from the details of a particular situation or problem and let your intuition go to work for you. Your words and ideas are received well with Mercury’s current transit of your solar third house, and with all the right nuances as it harmonizes with Neptune. There is a little extra romance or imagination in your interactions or your thoughts. The Moon’s move into Taurus today is another sign you’re loosening up, and it may motivate you to seek out more companionship.
While you may have felt compelled to focus on facts and figures in recent days, dear Sagittarius, you’re more inclined to enjoy your imagination or flights of fancy today. This is due to a Mercury-Neptune connection that encourages you to look at situations in different ways. Pleasing conversations can be part of the day, particularly with or about family, or can be related to home or domestic matters. Money-making ideas can be golden now, too, since your intuition for money or business is quite excellent today. When the Moon moves into Taurus today, it begins transiting your work and health sector, however, and while it only stays there for a couple of days, it can boost your interest in setting your environment straight or getting your work and chores out of the way.
While imagination hasn’t been in short supply recently, dear Capricorn, the contented, happy kind may have been, and today promises an end to this problem. Conversations can be inspiring, and ideas should be noted down. Allow extra room for imagination and wonder today for best results as Mercury in your sign connects harmoniously with Neptune in your communications sector. Decisions should not be rushed now. You’re likely to feel energized and rejuvenated through your communications, the news, or your studies. It’s easy to smooth over differences with others, if needed, or to pick up where you left off with people you care about. Sometimes it’s what you don’t talk about that helps you move forward. Reaching out in even the smallest of ways can be rewarding.
Taking a break from overanalyzing or overthinking today comes easily and naturally, dear Aquarius, and it comes as a nice reprieve after some ups and downs. You’re more inclined to let go of tension and allow your imagination to engage. Fortunately, it’s serving you exceptionally well. Conversations can help inspire you and stimulate your objectivity as you come to a more comfortable perspective on a situation. Make a point of enjoying some quality time to yourself dreaming up plans and examining dreams and ideas. The trick is to avoid investing too much in the details or the destination so that you can genuinely enjoy the process. Finding lost items or filling in the blanks can figure strongly now, and artistic pursuits can blossom.
There is flowing energy with you for communicating and interacting today, dear Pisces, and this comes at an especially opportune time. Your own words can inspire, and you can find inspiration in what others are saying as well. The calm and gentle theme is right up your alley and is due to a Mercury-Neptune aspect. When these two connect, you often find yourself on the same page with a significant other, and this is a nice feeling. It’s not necessarily about agreeing, but it involves seeing one another’s perspective. You might also find ways to magically and smoothly combine technique and inspiration. You seem to have an open pipeline to your inner guide now. For some of you, there can be a meaningful connection made with a friend.
