Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You’re in great shape for overview thinking regarding your life path and responsibilities, dear Aries. Still, with the Moon now in your sign, your personal needs are demanding more attention. Emotions are strongly felt or seem more urgent. Moodiness can interfere with career goals or filling your duties. The Moon in Aries brings you out of your shell and ready to connect with others, although perhaps a little impatient.

It’s an excellent time to strengthen a bond, and also for putting extra energy into resolving a complex problem. A focus on networking and friends also comes into play today.

People in your life are more supportive of your goals or integral in helping you see your priorities. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, however, reminding you of your obligations, which could initially feel like a drag. You tend to prefer the company of trusted others, and the comfort and freedom they give you to be yourself. Today, however, there is a need to perform or even prove yourself. Get over this hurdle, and you’ll be in great form. As much as possible, avoid rushing and aim to take things easy.

You could be excited about what you’re learning, or through the process of solving a problem, you learn some new tricks. With the Sun moving through your solar fifth house, you are more relaxed, freer, and playful in your expression these days. Still, the Moon spends the day in your serious, intimate sector, and your deeper needs can surface and demand attention. Frustrations require a positive channel for release, and possibly a creative one.
This is a good day for grounding yourself by focusing on a pet project or constructive activity, dear Libra.

It seems easier to smooth over problems today, dear Scorpio, despite a somewhat divided frame of mind. With the Sun in your close communications sector these days, it’s generally a time for diversifying, learning, seeking out new information, and sharing your ideas. Today, the Moon turns your attention to more pressing or practical concerns, and you can feel a bit stretched. You can feel behind but not quite ready to apply yourself to get back on track.

A Sun-Vesta aspect today encourages a focused, dedicated approach to a project or relationship, dear Capricorn, and this can really pay off. You are putting problems behind you, and it feels great. There continues to be good energy for opening the airways. Good news or advice may be circulating. The Moon transits your home and family sector all day, and the need for time to relax and wind down comes on. This does seem to clash with your recent drive for more activity and exploration. While you should do your best to avoid extra strain, try to take care of your diverse needs without overstraining. Although your confidence has been building, the need for comfort and familiarity can take over now, and it’s a valid one.
Today’s energies are good for applying yourself to a problem that you may have put off, dear Aquarius. Fortunately, you’re more determined than ever to make it work. You can be mainly focused on strengthening areas of your life that aren’t as visible, including relationships with loved ones and your attitude or outlook. Getting a section of your home organized may be part of this. It can also extend to any long-term project that you’ve put on a shelf or didn’t have time for in the past. Support might arrive from behind the scenes, and you can be feeling on top of family or home-related challenges. Still, your recent commitment to getting more time to yourself may need to be put on hold with the Moon’s transit of your busy, connected solar third house.
Pouring some of your energy into a worthwhile task can be well worth the effort today, dear Pisces. A project or predicament may deserve a second look now, and this time around, you’re determined to bring it to the finishing line. Still, you can feel a bit conflicted today with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house. It’s usually a comfortable transit that encourages you to stick with what you know for a couple of days. Some predictability can be good for you now. This may feel a bit frustrating initially as if you’re forced to put on the brakes just when you were gaining some forward momentum. While this transit may seem to compete with your need for collaboration and your social urges, it can be helpful to slow yourself down just for a bit. Be gentle with yourself and your activities and projects for best results now.
