Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There is a fresh feeling to the day, dear Aries. The Moon’s entry into your sign brings a rush of energy to your life and a desire to begin anew, to start a new project, or to enjoy a new experience. While emotions are strong and clear, desires are a bit hard to decipher today. Your ruler, Mars, is in your adventure sector these days, and this helps boost your energy (so does the Moon moving into your sign). You’re turning a corner with energy and confidence. Still, with Mars forming a minor challenging aspect to Uranus today, watch for a temper or rebellious feelings that interfere with your goals. Restlessness can make it hard to see the opportunities available to you. Life smooths out as it advances.
Mars is currently transiting your solar eighth house, dear Taurus, and this serves to animate your intimate world or inner landscape. You’re getting in touch with some of your deeper or hidden desires. You tend to put more energy into intimacy and self-understanding. You are especially interested in making inner changes, perhaps due to conflicts or important realizations. In the first half of today, Mars clashes with Uranus, and you may want to watch for impulsive moves or a tendency to follow whims that you might later regret. A craving for novelty can be so non-specific that you end up only spinning your wheels. As the day advances, you crave more downtime. While feelings remain layered, it’s best to keep activities and commitments light and simple.
Mars transiting your solar seventh house these days enlivens your relationships, dear Gemini, sometimes stimulating conflicts. Mars clashing with Uranus points to some restlessness in the first half of the day. You may need a change of pace, particularly in your relationships and downtime. The trick today is to take it easy and focus on one thing at a time rather than taking a random approach that seems only to lead to a chaotic feeling. Grounding yourself is easier as the day advances. You might discover ways to get in better touch with your desires and goals. You could experience a wonderful rush of new energy to fix a relationship problem. Learning what you genuinely want and going your own way can be the key to happiness, which ends up ricocheting back to your alliances.
The Moon moves into your career and reputation sector today, dear Cancer, and this can turn your focus to what needs getting done. Taking care of business may very well fill an important need today and tomorrow. With Mars in your solar sixth house these days, too, you’re inclined to want to keep busy and make important improvements to your daily life. Today, Mars and Uranus clash, and this can stimulate restlessness in the first half of the day. You may end up only spinning your wheels today if you let yourself get overwhelmed by things you want to accomplish. Take things one step at a time, but do seek ways to change the usual pace and enliven your day. Starting with something useful and working your way up makes the most sense. As the day advances, clarity comes more naturally. Rely on your intuition to take you to the next step.
The Moon moves into your sector of spirit, adventure, and expansion today, dear Leo, and you can feel ready to take on something new. As well, with Mars supporting your sign these days, you’re more confident, involved, and spirited. Today, you may need a change of pace to feel these things more fully or at least some goal to work towards so that you have a sense of purpose. If you’re not ready to set goals, you can still take advantage by pouring your energy into something creative, physical, or just for fun. Watch for impatience and hasty moves in the first half of the day. As the day advances, energies seem to smooth out. You still want to feel that you’re growing, learning, and improving, but you’re not trying to push it.
The Moon moves into your intimacy sector today, dear Virgo, aligning with Chiron there, and learning about your vulnerabilities is a useful exercise. On an emotional level, you need to feel that you’re making progress. Mars in your sector of home and family these days is another influence that inclines you to dig deep and make improvements in your private life. It can point to a busy time for your domestic life. At times, excess energy can lead to some level of chaos or turbulence in your personal life, and today, this is a little more likely with Mars in hard aspect to Uranus. You may have so much that you want to do that it’s difficult to know where to begin. With self-awareness, you can channel this energy positively, such as with organizing your home or actively sorting out problem areas in your personal life.
The Moon heads into your partnership sector today, dear Libra, aligning with Chiron there. This gives you a nice window into what may be going on under the surface so that you can see what exactly needs special attention. Through feelings and reactions, you might discover where you feel most vulnerable. Mars has been traveling through your communications sector in recent weeks, and it can be a busy, communicative time for you. Your motivation is strong for learning and connecting. Still, impatience can be an issue in the first half of today if you feel others are not keeping up with your quick pace. People may not be on the same wavelength as you, and this can produce some tension. Aim to slow yourself down, and you may be able to enjoy today’s more easygoing energies, which comes easier as the day advances.
The Moon heads into your work and health sector today, dear Scorpio, placing a stronger focus on the important details of your life. It could prompt you to focus on the not-so-important little things in your life that are going wrong, too, but you can stay on top of this tendency. Mars has been moving through your solar second house in recent weeks, encouraging your desire to improve your lot in life. At times during this cycle, there can be agitation if you’re not getting what you want fast enough. With Mars in minor challenging aspect to Uranus, you should probably watch for impatience in the first half of today as it may only push you further from your goals. The adage “haste makes waste” seems to apply now. You seem to accept and enjoy a steadier pace as the day advances, and this helps your productivity.
The Moon’s move into your solar fifth house today seems to supply you with more courage to do something different, creative, and unique, dear Sagittarius. You might discover new areas of life to explore. Mars has been transiting your sign in recent weeks and will continue to enliven you for at least two more weeks. This influence brings a lot of energy to your personality. You’ll get plenty of chances to assert yourself and seek out what you want from life with Mars boosting your initiative and drive. Angry feelings might seem closer to the surface during this period, and you might want to watch for overly hasty, impulsive, or impatient behavior, particularly when Mars is stressed as it is today. If you can manage to direct your energy productively, this can be an excellent time for heartily pursuing your goals. Focusing on one thing at a time and prioritizing will serve you the best right now. This can be challenging in the first half of the day, after which you see the wisdom of taking things more naturally.
The Moon moves into your family sector today, dear Capricorn, emphasizing your personal life and emotions. You need some release from pressure. You find comfort in familiar settings, and it helps you to recharge emotionally. Still, opening up communications with family can be rewarding now. Mars has been moving through your solar twelfth house in recent weeks, and you can find yourself shifting or reorganizing your goals and perhaps reconsidering some. It would help if you had more time to rest and reflect. However, it would be best if you watched for impulsiveness that works against your best interests from time to time when Mars is challenged in this sector of your solar chart, as it is today. Self-awareness will help you make the best of this transit.
The Moon’s move into your communications sector for a couple of days excites your curiosity, dear Aquarius. You can learn a lot from news coming in or the people you meet today. With Mars transiting your solar eleventh house, you have a stronger than usual desire for freedom of action. Fortunately, there tends to be fewer limits and restrictions on you than usual, in general, with this transit that will last at least another two weeks. You can be especially motivated to pursue your goals and dreams in concrete ways. When Mars is challenged during this period, as it is today, there can be tensions stirred, either socially or internally, as you can feel impatient to meet your goals. As the day advances, life remains busy, but it feels less chaotic and pressured.
The Moon moves out of your sign early today, dear Pisces, and you want to get comfortable. Even so, the first half of the day holds some tense energy to navigate. Mars has been moving through your career and reputation sector in recent weeks, and you want things running your way. It’s a good thing unless you push this a little too far, which is a possibility today if you don’t watch for it since Mars and Uranus clash. Watch also for impulsive words. They may stem from an authentic desire for change, but this should be acknowledged rather than allowed to rule your behavior. As the day advances, it feels easier to settle in. At the same time, you can have some interesting revelations about your relationship with your routines and things.
