Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You can be see-sawing between caution and the desire to push forward at times today, dear Aries, and decision-making can certainly suffer as a result. If you can, leave it for a time when more facts are available to you and you’re more confident and aware of what you truly want. Activities that honor your need to reconnect with your inner spirit are particularly timely now with the Moon’s transit of your privacy sector all day. Nevertheless, you’re in an excellent position for connecting with others in empowering ways today, and there can be connections made that are truly useful and beneficial to you.
There can be some tense spots today, dear Taurus, with your planetary ruler, Venus, in minor challenging aspect to Uranus in your sign. Fortunately, while you can be more reactive than usual, you’re also especially resilient, bouncing back quickly. You can feel impulsive at times now, and attractions (to material objects, situations, or people) can be unusual or sudden, but may not last for very long. Ideally, these stimulate you to think in different ways, ultimately helping you discover new tastes and perspectives. You’re in a good position for work and career-related efforts, your reputation, and status as the day advances. You may be able to gain an edge or advantage over your competition in business or simply a boost in popularity now. Recognition for your efforts can be forthcoming. A bit of emotional detachment gives you more freedom to be yourself and not worry too much about what other people think or expect of you.
Restlessness is possible at times today, dear Gemini. Be wary of breaking commitments and promises to others now, as it’s surprisingly easy to do under current transits. Spells of impatience today could lead to actions that you might later wish you’d avoided. If you must take action now, do so from the heart instead of blindly reacting. Still, today is potentially exciting for creative self-expression, love, and confidence, especially as the day advances. You’re comfortable pursuing your personal interests, and you’re attracting others through your confidence, ideas, and beliefs, or for your unique viewpoint and style.
There is minor challenging and perhaps fussy energy with us today, dear Cancer, and you should watch that you don’t attempt to fix situations or people when it would be better to let things play out naturally. Otherwise, you’re in good shape for personal attraction. Others recognize your more appealing qualities, even if you are in a rather detached mood. Today is also useful for gaining the support of others — or inner confidence — to pursue your goals as the day advances. Family and loved ones can be in your corner now. Money matters might also improve.
Cooperation is not perfect today, dear Leo, but even if it’s annoying, you might discover something good for you as you seek out different options. Relations could be a little off, as everyone seems to be bumping into one another early today. An unusual desire or whim may take hold and send you on a wild goose chase, or simply a new direction of discovery. Interestingly, attractions can be sudden but are likely to fade rather quickly. Today brings particularly good energy for connecting with a partner or for partnering up to produce something special as the day advances, however. Collaboration and problem-solving figure strongly.
You could be dealing with crossed wires or miscommunication that leaves you a little blind if you’re about to make an important decision today, dear Virgo, so it’s probably better to wait it out. It can be difficult to judge the true value of things, people, and possibly even situations, just for now. There can be some fickleness in relationships today so that it’s not an ideal time for getting close to someone. There could be a broken agreement or canceled social engagement to deal with, but energies for work and practical matters are particularly empowering for you, especially as the day advances. You can gain an edge or advantage with a real feel for what others want, combined with building confidence in what you’re doing.
Try to focus on positive, productive tasks today, dear Libra, because there is somewhat scattered energy to the first half of the day that points to missed connections. Avoid trying to persuade others to make changes, as there is somewhat rebellious energy to the day that can keep people from humbling themselves to any advice other than their own. Despite this, your powers of attraction are strong today, and you may very well think up creative ways for relating now that are a pleasing break from the traditional. You’re in a particularly good position for creative and expressive activities, especially as the day advances, and for gaining an edge in a romantic, playful, or creative pursuit. Communications help boost your personality and charisma in others’ eyes.
Cooperation doesn’t come easily in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio, but only if we’re sticking to familiar patterns of relating. If you default to the idea that you’re relying on yourself today, or if you aim to approach others in new and improved ways, things feel less chaotic. Plus, someone may surprise you with a happy response. The need for excitement is strong today, yet you’re also hungry for balance and steadiness. The result may be a bit of a tug of war. Still, you might decide not to get caught up in what others are and aren’t doing. Sudden desires may seem to take over and spoil the fun, but consider that doing things a little differently, particularly in your interactions, can be rewarding now. Especially as the day advances, empowering energy is with you for personal or domestic matters. You’re likely to feel increased inner courage and confidence, and support is easy to find–and give. Living conditions may be improving, which boosts your mood.
It’s better not to put your faith in others’ schedules or promises today, dear Sagittarius, as there can be changes of mind and of heart right now. If you’re feeling antsy, you likely need to change things up a little–traditional methods and patterns of relating don’t seem to satisfy or work well today. Cooperation doesn’t come easily, whether to give it or receive it. Family life may be a bit scattered as well, but it’s nothing a refreshing change of pace can’t resolve. Energies are particularly strong for communicating, connecting, and networking as the day advances. You might gain an advantage or edge through information, news, or an important project now, or you might form or enhance a mutually beneficial relationship.
Today’s Venus-Uranus minor challenge suggests we’d rather go our own way than cooperate in spots, dear Capricorn. If you feel cooped up, you’re not inclined to shrug and make the best of it. Instead of only spinning your wheels, you might aim to channel your energy into tasks that require physical effort or that truly improve your personal environment, as energy left unchanneled could easily translate into nervous tension. Satisfy an itch for change in small, harmless ways instead of making sweeping decisions that you may not be fully equipped to make for now. Seeds are planted today, though, and they’re important. As the day advances, constructive and respectful conversations and shared activities can figure strongly and feel good. It’s an excellent time to gain an edge in your work or business.
Cooperation is not a given today, dear Aquarius, with Uranus in a minor challenging aspect to Venus and heading into a similar relationship with Mars. A fun competition or useful shared activity can turn into a problematic situation all too readily under these conditions, so it may be better to work by yourself and for yourself for the time being. Mind you, people can certainly get along, but there have to be different “rules” or approaches for it to work just for now. At the same time, your desire or taste for something different is strong. Keep yourself busy in a solo effort, and you’ll do far better than you would in cooperative endeavors now. Also, watch for very sudden wants and desires, particularly when shopping! Impulse buys may not be wise for the moment. Nevertheless, later today is potentially strong for personal appeal and gaining respect, admiration, or support. Your personality shines, and your problem-solving abilities increase. You are in an excellent position to build trust and rapport or to form a partnership.
The Moon transits your sign all day, dear Pisces, and you’re in active touch with your emotions, although your needs can feel quite urgent. You’re likely to be feeling a little touchy or sensitive in spots today, and it can be tough to concentrate on practical tasks. Productivity may be low in the first half of the day, as a desire for ease and pleasure might be stronger than usual and can interfere with work. Watch for overindulgence. What’s likely to be at the heart of discontent is a need for a change of pace. Make changes mindfully, even if they’re only about mixing up your schedule or looking into a new interest. Especially as the day advances, you’re likely to feel that you’ve gained an edge on an emotional level. Your observations and insights are on point, and you see your inner needs and desires more clearly after a bit of experimentation and perhaps trial and error!
