Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Emotions are mostly steady today, dear Aries, and you’re seeking a little more predictability than usual for much of the day. It’s a time for tapping into both your ambition and your patience for maximum productivity. The Moon’s move into your solar third house later today encourages you to connect and it also stimulates your curiosity or desire to learn and research ideas. There is also strong energy for business today as the Sun and Ceres form a pleasing contact. You can get good support and backing from others in ways that improve your career prospects or reputation. Ideas are particularly rich when it comes to sensing what people want, and this benefits both intimate and professional relationships. You’re willing to pour your love and attention into projects.
The Moon in your sign connects well with the Sun today, dear Taurus, and points to an especially good mood or positive, confident mindset. A Sun-Ceres connection offers good energy for sharing some broader ideas with someone special. You can feel wholly supported when someone reinforces and understands your perspective, beliefs, or ideas now. There is some tendency to take the easy road rather than challenge yourself today, however, which you may want to watch for. The Moon moves out of your sign later today, and this transit tends to settle or safely tuck away the emotions, making it a little easier to focus on your practical affairs.
You may begin the day quite inconspicuously, dear Gemini, with the Moon’s continued transit of your privacy sector. You look within for answers under this influence. You may be seeking out some level of anonymity now. However, with the Moon’s move into your sign later today, you’ll begin to both attract and crave a connection with the world around you, or otherwise the acknowledgment of your feelings. Emotional needs that you’ve put to the side now seek expression. Even so, this can be a productive time for making headway with organizing efforts, work, or research. Finding the information you need comes more easily than usual today and tomorrow.
Today is strong for sharing ideas and even dilemmas with others, dear Cancer, as you’re likely to get some real support. Collaboration tends to go exceptionally well now. Sharing your load with others can be rewarding, as well, with the Sun in your partnership sector connecting with Ceres in your creative and romantic sector. You’ll enjoy doting on someone or something you care about now. Later today when the Moon enters the sign of Gemini, it begins its transit of the privacy sector of your solar chart, and you can be entirely preoccupied with important thoughts or secrets. It’s a good time to uncover benefits from giving yourself some emotional space or some time out from a busy pace.
You may be improving or discovering strategies for boosting your professional reputation today, dear Leo. The Moon spends much of the day at the top of your solar chart, and you’re commanding attention. The Moon moves into your sector of friends, associates, wishes, and dreams later today, making it an especially good time to take a load off. The focus is on letting go of pressures to perform in the coming days. As well today, you’re in a good position to take the lead on a household or family matter, and efforts to improve your work or health can also be quite fruitful. A healthy Sun-Ceres connection between your home and work sectors can point to creative ways to get work done in or on your home, as well as more cooperation with family and co-workers. You’re bringing more love or care to your endeavors now.
This can be a good day for expressing yourself through art, favorite pastimes, or even love, dear Virgo. While this can be a wonderfully rich day for creative and romantic expression, the Moon moves to the top of your solar chart later today when it enters the sign of Gemini, and this serves to fire up your ambitions. You become more aware of what you should and shouldn’t be doing. With this transit, aim to be the shining light instead of fretting over what others might be thinking of you. It’s a time for taking on a responsibility that will genuinely improve your life. With a Sun-Ceres aspect active now, creative ideas are abundant, and you may be bonding with others through pleasure and play. Someone may be expressing their affection for you, or you could find excellent benefits from reaching out to someone.
The Sun’s current transit of your solar fourth house frequently turns your attention to home life and the enjoyment of familiar settings and situations, dear Libra. Today, you may especially benefit from some time to yourself for getting yourself centered. Family and home-related goals can prosper, and genuinely stellar ideas for making or saving money can emerge now. Even so, the Moon moves into your adventure sector later today when it heads into the sign of Gemini, and this pumps up any latent desires to get out and about, which will continue tomorrow and the next. If it’s just not the time to seek big ways to express your desire to wander, even small efforts to mix up your routine or try out something new can be satisfying at this time in the lunar month.
The current Sun transit frequently encourages your need for variety or desire to learn new things, dear Scorpio. Your sense of timing and feelings of satisfaction are strong now as the Sun and Moon harmonize. This is a potentially strong day for taking care of both people and business! It’s a good time for family or interactions with people on whom you can rely. You may be taking on a nurturing role with Ceres in your sign connecting to the Sun, and you are uniquely able to communicate your acceptance and care. You are also more creative or skilled at expressing your ideas in ways that others appreciate. Later today, the Moon moves into your intimacy sector, and this brings about a stronger need for deeper connections to others, the world around you, and yourself. You’re demanding more but also giving more.
Your priorities seem clearer than usual today, dear Sagittarius, as the Moon in your work and health sector once again harmonizes with influences in your sector of resources. Decisions can be made quite painlessly under these conditions since you have a solid handle on your situation. A harmonious aspect between the Sun and Ceres tends to encourage contentment with your current lot in life. You see things for their value. It’s a good influence for showing your care and concern or expressing your feelings in real, measurable ways. Later today when the Moon moves into your opposing sign (Gemini) you’re more inclined to pull your head out of your work and personal research, and instead seek out some companionship. The focus can be on the needs or agenda of a partner or good friend now, and you’ll find that compromising comes far more easily than usual now and in the next couple of days.
With the Sun’s continued transit of your sign, dear Capricorn, you’re seeking some independence and room for spontaneity. As the Sun connects pleasantly with the Moon today, you are in great shape for expressing yourself and for enjoying creative or romantic pursuits. Reaching out to others has wonderful benefits now, and you’ll find that certain people are very much in your corner. You may be taking the initiative with friends and networking or in group settings, and your creativity or contributions can be especially appreciated. Someone may be expressing their affection for you. It’s a good time for cooperating and enjoying time with others. The Moon’s move into your sector of work and health later today encourages attention to daily routines and essential details.
The Sun in your retiring, private solar twelfth house these days draws you inside yourself, dear Aquarius, or you could find yourself more frequently in the role of an observer than a participant. Excellent energy is with you for bonding with loved ones or with a special project — even with yourself as you gain a better understanding of your deeper needs. While you have wonderful support for your emotional life or some satisfying introspection, today’s energies are also potent for business ideas or for doing some big-picture thinking and planning. You may be especially interested in mapping out goals or objectives. The Moon’s move into your playful solar fifth house later today when the Moon enters sister Air sign, Gemini, can stimulate a desire to communicate and connect.
The Sun’s continued transit of your social sector encourages you to experiment, reach out beyond your usual boundaries, and connect with friends or groups, dear Pisces. Today, the Moon supports these efforts, and you can find yourself in a most certain, natural frame of mind that improves your sense of timing. People come through for you. This is a potentially standout day for furthering creative goals and ambitions as well as for sharing well-received ideas. Recreational activities with friends can be especially appreciated. Healing through play, pleasure, and positivity can be in strong focus now. The Moon’s move into your sector of home and family later today is a somewhat retiring transit, but this is more about settling in and enjoying quieter, comforting times than about needing to be on your own.
