Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Moon continues to transit your sign much of the day, dear Aries, and you seek emotional refreshment. The morning can prove a little conflicting with mixed signals to manage. Later today, the Moon moves into your resources sector for a couple of days. While your personal experiences and goals have been in high focus, you’re taking more interest in slowing down and enjoying yourself. This transit is about building, rooting, and nesting after a period of innovation or excitement. Another move today puts Ceres in your social sector until April 23rd. In the months ahead, you might more frequently look to friends for nourishment, or the focus can be on developing and strengthening your bonds and connections with others. Instead, you could be bringing more loving attention to long-term “happiness” goals and cherished dreams.
Your new lunar cycle begins later today when the Moon enters your sign, dear Taurus. Until then, you’re in good shape for catching up on rest. It’s a fine time to tie up loose ends if you’re anxious to take a more active role. This morning, there can be some tension, but if so, remind yourself that if you move slowly and steadily, you’re more likely to reach your goals in ways that make you proud. You don’t have to do everything at once! You may experience a temporary setback or discouraging situation with the Moon square Saturn, but it’s important to bounce right back. Take extra time for yourself today and recognize that you’ll be far better off in the long run if you do. Also today, a cycle begins that runs until April 23rd, and it’s excellent for more emotional satisfaction or nourishment from your work and long-term goals. You may be giving more special, loving attention to your work or business. Your work might benefit from extra consideration of the personal side of your interactions, reaching out to people, and helping others.
You’re more emotionally invested than usual in your friendships or your happiness goals and dreams today, dear Gemini, as the Moon finishes up its transit of your solar eleventh house. This influence stimulates your desire to be involved. There is a natural need to detach yourself temporarily from people and situations that have you feeling under pressure. By evening, you’re ready to cocoon, rest, and reflect as you enter a two-day cycle for healing and regeneration. Also today, you begin a cycle that’s excellent for putting in extra effort to learn new things, taking trips, or seeking out varied experiences. These activities increase your feelings of emotional satisfaction and lead to a stronger sense of well-being during this cycle that lasts until April 23rd.
Moodiness is quite possible this morning, dear Cancer, with the Moon at the top of your chart clashing with Pluto and Saturn, especially if people are making too many demands on your time. You have much you want to accomplish, and it can seem that others are distracting you from your goals too frequently. Get over this hump, however, and you can quickly feel that you’re back in the driver’s seat. The Moon’s move to your social sector later today puts you in a more relaxed state. Pressures fall away along with the expectations. Also today, you enter a cycle that lasts until April 23rd in which emotional nourishment and satisfaction come through a warmer, more vibrant connection to your relationships and projects. You’ll have more interest in exploring your interests in-depth.
The Moon’s transit encourages you to seek more interesting experiences and ideas, dear Leo. Still, its clash with Pluto and Saturn this morning highlights your ambitions for improving your work and wellness. It can seem difficult to fit everything in. As the day progresses, you’ll find it easier to know and focus on your priorities. You’ll feel most satisfied with a general plan of action in place now. Also today, a new cycle begins that motivates you to reach out to others and make the time for socializing or partnering. Until April 23rd, mediating, counseling, and other forms of partnering up can be especially beneficial.
One part of you might enjoy some emotional distance from others or more structured interactions, dear Virgo, and another part craves more intimacy today. While you can feel a bit divided this morning, as the day advances, you find it easier to reach a compromise. Mysteries and complex problems attract and engage you more than usual today. With the Moon’s move into fellow Earth sign Taurus later today, you’ll feel the desire to pull yourself out of hiding. Even so, a new cycle beginning today and running to April 23rd makes it very worth your while to pay loving attention to your work and physical health. You’ll be feeling more rewarded and accomplished as you fulfill your daily duties and routines in the months ahead. Helping others or improving your work and services can be in stronger focus and satisfying.
Areas of imbalance in your life or relationships can be more evident today, dear Libra, and you’re quick to correct them. It’s a relationship-oriented day with the Moon in your partnership sector, and then later, your intimacy sector. As the day advances, you are a little more serious, and you stay away from anything that seems too superficial. Doing one thing well, instead of many things satisfactorily, is most rewarding now. Also today, a new cycle begins that encourages you to pursue your interests more attentively. You’ll be giving your hobbies, creative projects, children, or romance more caring attention. Bringing more creativity to your life promotes a sense of well-being and better health all around, both mental and physical, and this transit lasts until April 23rd.
There may be some detail work to do today, dear Scorpio, which seems to be at odds with your current train of thought this morning. You’ll probably do better for yourself in the long run if you can handle the practical things so that you can put them behind you. As the day advances, it becomes easier to tune one thing out so that you can concentrate on something else more closely. Also today, a new Ceres cycle begins that boosts your desire to make your personal life more comfortable and nourishing. You’re gaining more confidence through this special attention to your home and family life that benefits you all across the board. This cycle lasts until April 23rd and is a call to put more heart into your personal life.
The Moon continues transiting your playful solar fifth house much of the day, dear Sagittarius, and its goal is to draw you out of your shell. Early today, you could feel a bit conflicted on this note as the Moon clashes with Pluto and Saturn, seemingly to pit your ambitions against your valid need for recreation and leisure. You’re also starting a new cycle today that’s excellent for paying particular attention to your interests and projects, studies, errands, and connections. Learning, teaching, and guiding are in wonderful focus until April 23rd, and they thrive with the extra attention you’re giving them. It’s also a fine time to open yourself up to some of the goings-on around you.
You begin the day with the Moon continuing its transit of the lowest part of your solar chart, dear Capricorn, and you crave feelings of security and rootedness. There can be a special enjoyment of personal memories, and some form of emotional retreat is appropriate now. Early day, there can be some clashes between this valid need for winding down and your ambitions. Consider that you might end up feeling drained if you don’t honor the need to surround yourself with familiar people, things, and activities for a bit. As the day advances, you crave more involvement and feedback. A cycle begins today in which you might thoroughly enjoy saving up for something special, nurturing a business or personal venture, and enjoying a more stable, predictable life for a spell. Until April 23rd, you can benefit from putting more effort into making your life more comfortable.
Early today, you could feel some level of disorganization or a feeling of overwhelm, dear Aquarius. You may need to give your mind a rest or to feed it with more imaginative activities, dreams, and fantasies, before turning back to practical and logical thinking with increased energy. You’ll find things calmer and more focused later today once the Moon enters Taurus. Getting comfortable becomes an emotional need from this point on. Also today, a new cycle begins that puts Ceres in your sign until April 23rd. This transit motivates you to honor your emotional life. You’re encouraged to recognize both your sense of independence and needs for nurturance and special attention. You’ll be projecting a warmer personality and more confidence in your need for personal time.
The morning brings a greater awareness of your responsibilities, dear Pisces. With the Moon in your resources sector until the evening, you’re approaching life with a desire to either settle in and get comfortable or work on building something rather than innovating or starting anew. Your needs seem to be met more readily with a direct approach now, and you can have a chance to regroup. As the day advances, your curiosity builds, and you’re more interactive. A new cycle beginning today can more frequently find you seeking out comfort from behind the scenes activities, private moments, and personal time. During this transit that lasts until April 23rd, you might consider using rest as a means to take better care of yourself. Healing comes from getting in touch with your deepest feelings about people and situations that belong in your past.
