Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The day holds some wonderful promise of true relaxation of the mind, dear Aries, with the Moon’s move into your solar ninth house and its harmony with Mars in your sign. Fiery Mars continues to light a fire under you as you seek out more excitement and opportunities to improve and grow. You’re more inclined to see the bigger picture and tend to not stress over minutia. It’s not as simple as looking at the bright side of things; instead, it’s about gaining a broader perspective. Doors can open in your life for personal growth opportunities, and a broad mind is a prerequisite. Physical activities or competition can thrive since you’re more natural and spontaneous under these influences. You can bring real creativity, fun, and charm to whatever you set out to do today. Pouring energy into the world rather than keeping things to yourself seems to be the most rewarding way to fill your needs today.
With the Moon’s move into your intimacy sector and its harmony with Mars in your privacy sector today, dear Taurus, you’re in a strong position to connect with your deeper needs and desires. They’re certainly more complicated and layered at the moment, but you’re feeling especially energetic and motivated to explore new or unusual feelings. Sound energy is with you for making peace with the past and for processing and integrating recent experiences and coming up with something meaningful through it all. There is greater self-understanding now, and a sense of inner strength and resolve. You are a little more reflective now, and necessarily so, as this is part of a larger cycle that encourages you to look within periodically. You might enjoy a vital memory, a personal revelation, or a previously hidden resource that now comes into view.
People in your life tend to jumpstart your thinking processes as you react to them, or defend your ideas and point of view with the Moon’s transit of your partnership sector today, dear Gemini. Whether you’re noticing differences or similarities, you’re challenged and ultimately getting to know yourself more thoroughly in the process. You are more able to slip into others’ shoes and adjust your behavior accordingly without compromising your individuality. There is an easy, pleasant feeling of being connected with others today as the Moon and Mars harmonize in your social sectors. The day favors staying active with others as well as an openness to new approaches and experiences.
With the Moon’s move into your work and routine sector and its harmony to Mars today, dear Cancer, you may be seeking sustenance through practical activities and your connection with the physical world. It’s also a good time for feeling more purposeful through your work or projects. Instincts for business and personal presentation are accurate now, supporting your efforts to reach your practical goals. You may very well feel refreshed and revitalized through your duties or chores now. This is an excellent time to let go of recent tendencies to process and overthink, which has been helpful but perhaps a little exhausting, too. You’re now motivated to act, do, and intuit, and it feels good to be in touch with your instincts.
You are focusing on the similarities between you and the people in your life today, dear Leo, which can amuse and please you now. The Moon spends the day in your sector of personal enjoyment and self-expression, and some light entertainment is in order, helping you to detox on an emotional level. You’re more inclined to act than to overthink things now. The Moon harmonizes with Mars in your adventure sector and your own sign, and it’s easier than usual to go after what you want and assert your needs or desires. You’re in tune creatively. There is especially forward-looking, positive energy surrounding you today. You are generous with your time and energy, and you’re coming across as magnetic and expressive.
With the Moon in your solar fourth house harmonizing with Mars today, dear Virgo, you’re finding ways to strengthen and bolster your inner confidence. You’re seeking a nice sense of being rooted, secure, and supported, but you’re also interested in accomplishing something as the energies of the day are action-oriented. You might take the initiative to establish a sense of peace with those closest to you or pursue a home or family activity. Keep things light and positive for best results today. You’re willing to discuss or face deeper issues or unfulfilled needs and desires. You can be enthusiastic about coming to an emotional understanding of yourself and the people you care about. Private and intimate matters prosper today.
You can manage to communicate your needs quite successfully today, dear Libra, not only or necessarily with words but with your actions. Sound energy is with you for relating and interacting, and you might be in the mood to entertain. You are especially alert today, and perhaps quite curious about what’s going on around you. The focus is on sharing and interacting more than anything, and what’s communicated is less important than the fact that you’re opening up the airways right now. You’re likely to enjoy being on the move or mixing up the routine to keep you stimulated. If you’ve held yourself to specific projects and ideas recently, then this is your opportunity to diversify and put your feelers out into the world. You’re in strong form socially and romantically, and you’re attracting good energy to you as well as radiating it.
You can be quite practical-minded today, dear Scorpio, with the Moon leaving your sign and entering your solar second house. Emotions tend to settle right down, and life no longer feels like a pressure cooker. Clarity can light a fire under you now, making it a good time to take care of business. You have a need to be productive, and you can benefit from a patient approach. You’re bringing new energy to the material world now, and while you’re emotionally excited, you’re also finding it easy and satisfying to pace yourself. You feel particularly fulfilled through the performance of your work, services, chores, or the like. You have an intuitive understanding of how to use your resources or talents to your benefit. In a few days, a Solar Eclipse will occur after which activity will increase. Until then, it’s wise to get your bearings.
This can be a time for letting go of a project that has had its time in the sun, dear Sagittarius, or that you can no longer manage. In the meantime, you have wonderful things going on, and you’re developing many and varied interests that help fuel your enthusiasm and motivation. With a Solar Eclipse occurring in just a few days, it’s a good time for processing, digesting, and pruning. You are winding down and craving more personal time. Even so, you have quite a bit of emotional energy today as the Moon enters your sign and harmonizes with Mars in Aries. Creative or recreational activities satisfy more than usual. You are likely to feel quite brave, particularly when it comes to expressing your affection or your more unique qualities. Others appreciate your natural personal style.
The Moon moves into your solar twelfth house today, dear Capricorn, and you could find yourself in the background or working under the hood in some manner, and quite probably, thoroughly enjoying it. It’s a wonderful time for regrouping and refreshing, and these things are particularly appropriate now with a Solar Eclipse set to occur in your sign in just a few days. Take the time to envision what it is you want. While this is a relatively quiet time, it doesn’t have to be inactive, and with the Moon’s trine to Mars in your sector of home and family, you can be pleasantly busy, especially with domestic matters. This transit encourages you to allow your imagination to lead the way. Creatively speaking, your focus on memories and the past can be fertile now.
With the Moon’s move into your solar eleventh house today, dear Aquarius, you might especially enjoy focusing on some of the dreams and hopes dearest to your heart.

There can be a lot of theory, but little that sticks or takes, making it best to enjoy yourself, take notes, and then wait things out before pushing something new.
You may be experiencing more get up and go than usual today, dear Pisces, and it’s most likely to revolve around your practical affairs, business, work, or money. People seem to follow your lead quite naturally today. This is a good time for feeling proud of what you’re doing and upping your game just a little further. There’s a pleasant emphasis on the earthy sectors of your solar chart right now, and your business instincts or sense of what’s most valuable and worth your time are strong.
