Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Aries, and you may be looking to settle in and enjoy yourself. It’s a good day for discovering reasons to appreciate your life in fundamental ways. It’s also a time for being especially drawn to earthy, grounding activities, especially with the Moon’s harmonious aspect to practical Saturn. Efforts toward building something worthwhile and long-term can be very rewarding and attractive to you now. You’re more inclined to play it safe on an emotional level, and this is an essential exercise as you work on making your life more comfortable and secure, even in small ways. This can be a good day for putting your practical affairs together.
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Taurus, enlivening your emotions. Your focus is on self-improvement now. Emotions are loud and clear, and they more readily find a vehicle for expression. This is a time for acknowledging feelings that you may have set aside recently, but the energies of the day favor channeling emotions in constructive, helpful ways. Your intuitive, compassionate side is emphasized and draws up to the surface later today, and with a new and perhaps more forgiving and kinder look at situations and people in your life, you’re likely to arrive at a nice feeling of peace or freedom. You might enjoy coming to someone’s aid or otherwise offering a hand.
The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Gemini, marking the tail-end of a lunar cycle. This is a time for sorting through recent experiences and deciding what to leave behind you and what to bring forward into the new cycle that begins later tomorrow. You’re likely to enjoy increased confidence related to your long-term goals or your professional or public dealings. This is a potentially strong day for working on your emotional life as well as for behind-the-scenes activities. It’s best to respond to emotional signals to regroup and collect yourself. You may be attracted to activities that help you relax and take a load off. Even so, there could be thoughts of work or larger life plan goals, but this is more about letting your mind wander rather than mapping things out in definite terms.
The Moon spends the day in your friendship sector, dear Cancer, and you’re seeking more comfortable, friendly activities and connections than usual. Others seem to have your back today, and you theirs. In fact, it’s a good time to spend time with or show your support of someone significant to you. Release pressure for best results now. Even so, your sense of timing is quite strong at the moment, and it can benefit you to get involved in some manner. You may very well receive some form of positive boost or inspiration. Your imagination is active but not in an overstimulating way, and your vision spans well beyond the ordinary. The desire to seek out like-minded people or kindred spirits increases now.
The Moon spends the day in your sector of status, responsibility, career and reputation, dear Leo, and you can be particularly goal-focused and ready to take charge. You are more aware than usual of your image and performance, which can fuel your motivation to reach higher or do your best. You can readily get to the point of feeling truly comfortable with your role and responsibilities today. You might find yourself in the position to take charge, lead, manage, or direct with success now. Productive, practical tasks benefit most today. There may be good news or important information absorbed that boosts your confidence. Choose today to get some essential things done or problems resolved.
The Moon spends the day in your adventure sector, dear Virgo, and lifts your thoughts and feelings to greater heights as you connect with the needs of your spirit. Learning and sharing ideas can be in stronger focus now. You can be seeking out new ways to enjoy yourself or to experience life more fully during this brief but inspiring transit. You are extraordinarily resourceful today as the Moon connects with Mercury and Saturn, seeking and finding opportunities wherever you look. It can be a good time to put plans or promises to yourself into motion. It’s also a fine day for creative endeavors and gathering strength from a friendship. There is cleverness in your approaches or methods now.
The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, dear Libra, and you can be primarily focused on and interested in intensive projects rather than spreading your attention around. This transit encourages introspection, problem-solving, and research. You’d prefer not to skim the surface of things, and instead, you want to go all in! This is a good day for setting things right in your life in some small way. Gaining a slight advantage can feel right now, or letting go of bad habits seems more within your reach than usual. There might be some good news, new information, or a rewarding conversation that puts a spring in your step. Take steps to move toward important goals and get yourself into a comfortable pace for best results.
The day favors easy connections to others and your projects, dear Scorpio. Your social life, close relationships, partnerships, and companionship are in sharper and happier focus today with the Moon in your solar seventh house all day. This is a strong day for doing something with a partner or with company as you can accomplish a lot with a little extra inspiration and moral support. While you can be more emotionally geared towards relating than producing at the moment, you can also be quite productive with the help of others as the Moon harmonizes with Mercury and Saturn in your communications sector. You seek to establish balance in your life more than usual, and you have the support of mature Saturn today. You might decide to work on a project with someone special or work on a long-term project, either of which can be quite successful now.
This is a day for fixing problems and getting your life on track, dear Sagittarius, with the Moon in your work and health sector connecting happily to mature, steady Saturn. It’s a good time for potentially finding solutions to health or work problems, as well as for getting a variety of little tasks completed. Turn your thoughts to long-term plans, as this is a good time for applying strategy to your thinking, and you are fortunately more resourceful than usual. The Moon’s trine to Saturn suggests more emotional intelligence than usual as we think about our long-term welfare, not only satisfaction in the moment. Your timing is sharp today, and you’re quick to identify opportunities.
The Moon spends the day in your sector of creativity and fun, dear Capricorn, but also connects with Saturn in your sign, suggesting some serious or structured attention to your leisure time. It’s a good day for taking small steps towards a goal. It’s also a fine time for correcting problems in relationships and ironing out differences. You are interested in bringing more form and structure to your life, or you more clearly see the benefits of pacing yourself. This Moon-Saturn connection contributes to a stronger sense and love of order and self-discipline. Saturn’s transit of your sign is not all about realism, it’s also about bringing more maturity to your character, and today, you’re more likely to feel good about taking steps towards this end. Emotionally speaking, anything that boosts your feelings of security contributes to healthy feelings now.
The Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, dear Aquarius, stimulating a need to reconnect with your roots, get comfortable, or stick with familiar places and faces. Your domestic side is strongly encouraged now, and you’re inclined to get to the heart of a matter. You may be especially aware of the need to let go of clutter, dysfunctional attitudes, or situations that are holding you back from enjoying yourself, growing, and thriving. You could feel especially equipped to handle such a matter, and you’re inclined to do things one step at a time at a comfortable pace, which feels right. It’s a good idea to listen to your strong intuition regarding practical matters now since it seems to serve you particularly well today. You can have a way of bringing elements of the past, such as wisdom or your heritage, to current projects and activities in a positive, supportive manner. Focus on attending to your domestic or personal needs today for best results.
The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Pisces, and you’re inclined to keep yourself busy. Curiosity keeps you mentally engaged, although sometimes somewhat distracted, and you express yourself comfortably and creatively. Mind you, the Moon connecting with Saturn can lead to some reserve, but it’s a useful, practical connection that boosts your productivity. Others seem to be listening to you, and in fact, may be especially drawn to your ideas or words. It can be of much benefit for you to put your feelers out now, as there is something valuable to learn now. It’s a day for feeling more empowered through taking steps, even small ones, to make improvements.
