Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There is once again a focus on your professional life, responsibilities, and image, dear Aries, as the Sun and Mercury head toward alignment at the top of your solar chart. You may be getting noticed for your efforts, skills, and voice. You might receive special attention in a public or professional sense, or your communications are particularly impactful. Because there is a lunar eclipse tomorrow, it’s essential to keep this in mind and perhaps be a little more guarded with what/how you communicate. New insights into your career or life path can emerge, or a significant clarification or a meaningful realization occurs. Ideas for new directions can be valuable now. It may be that you are verbalizing an idea that you’ve only thought about, which frames it in a new way, aiding your thought process. The Moon moves to the bottom of your solar chart, encouraging you to take it easy. The Moon does brief battle with Jupiter, and Jupiter is motivating you to grow, improve, and perform. As big as a draw this may be, it’s a good idea to honor your need to wind down and play it safe just for now. This push-pull energy continues tomorrow in a bigger way through the lunar eclipse.
Especially as the day advances, dear Taurus, there is great energy with you for clarity, particularly about studies, travel, communications, or publishing matters. Details might fill in regarding any of these issues, offering you a new perspective. Illumination can occur now on a mental level. You may feel compelled or excited to share your ideas, beliefs, and personal philosophies with others. Excitement and motivation to soak in information and acquire new knowledge figures strongly now. You want to move out of your comfort zone regarding learning, thinking, and doing. There can be a significant discovery or connection made now. You express yourself with more enthusiasm and faith, and this goes over very well with others. Even so, there can be some challenge focusing or concentrating today and tomorrow, as emotions are intense and building, and it may not be easy to discern fact from fiction.
The Sun and Mercury are heading toward alignment in your intimacy sector, dear Gemini, and this can be a real nudge towards looking within for answers. It’s also a prompt to seek out a deeper involvement in a project, venture, or relationship. You’re not interested in fluff at the moment as you pursue more meaningful or absorbing experiences. As such, some endeavors are likely to fall by the wayside. It’s a time for clearing the air. Still, it’s important to watch for an overly technical or intellectual approach to self-expression today and tomorrow with a Lunar Eclipse about to occur. Reaching an epiphany is likely now, but you should take your time with what emerges. The Moon moves into your solar second house, encouraging you to simplify and take care of the basics. However, this valid need is challenged. Take steps to wind down with commitments or responsibilities at cross-purposes–you’re not entirely sure if you want to go your own way or lean on others. Try not to fret it too much and aim to enjoy the moment.
A Mercury-Sun alignment in your opposing sign can generate a lot of mental activity, dear Cancer, but you may feel as if it’s against your purposes. You can be doing a lot of processing, sorting, and organizing your thoughts and ideas, and interactions or conversations with someone can help jumpstart critical thinking. Some emotional detachment can be quite helpful but difficult, indeed, with the Moon’s move into your sign today, and a Lunar Eclipse occurring in Cancer tomorrow! It may be a good idea to allow others to lead the conversations and listen carefully, but don’t let the chatter or noise confuse emotional epiphanies of your own. It can be challenging to juggle all that’s going on now, but it can be rewarding to do so. Ultimately, you’re likely to discover a missing puzzle piece of information or when especially meaningful conversations and conclusions happen. If others’ demands on you feel a little excessive, it’s a time for considering your real needs. Aim to pace yourself regardless, since excess has a price even if the payment is deferred. You’re experiencing the world around you through the lens of your emotions right now, and this makes things a little bigger and more colorful than usual.
You’re in a powerful cycle for self-development and laying the groundwork for future success, dear Leo. Today, communication issues tend to dominate. There can be an epiphany or realization about a health issue or solution or a work or service matter, and you can enjoy a sense of excitement. Much thought can be given to how to make improvements to any of these things now, and conversations or incoming news can lead the way to new beginnings. Good energy is with you for sorting out and gaining clarity about work and health matters logically, although emotional considerations are necessary. It can be challenging to see what’s real and what’s hyped right now. Watch for a business-like insensitivity or impatience with people since we’re all very sensitive. As well, your mind might say “yes” to things that your heart has yet to process. The Moon moves into the sign just behind yours, pointing to a need for reflection. A dichotomy or difficult choice can lead you to consider imbalances in your life today and tomorrow, however. Something has to give to balance your life better, particularly when it comes to working and resting, or tending to physical needs and tending to emotional/mental needs.
As your ruler, Mercury, heads into alignment with the Sun, dear Virgo, there can be new details about creative projects, a relationship, or finances that help you solve problems and make decisions. Your communications are entertaining and fun, and you are taking more pride in your ideas or creations. A romantic revelation might be imminent, or a creative project or relationship could reach a turning point. Observations made now are likely to be significant, and assessing recent ideas can be beneficial. You can be highly engaged on a mental level, but consider that a Lunar Eclipse is about to occur, too, and emotions are building. Watch for feeling pressured to say yes or to throw yourself into something before your heart is ready. An overdue conversation related to any of these themes can happen now, and it can set you in a new direction. There is undoubtedly some push-pull energy now and this week as you have much going on in your personal life and can find it hard balancing all of your interests.
The desire to reach out to someone you love is big right now, dear Libra. There can be an important conversation or news that motivates you to push forward with domestic plans. You can see opportunities to put the negative elements of the past behind you, particularly in a relationship with a loved one. Family matters are sharply in focus, and a personal or emotional breakthrough is entirely possible. There can be big ideas and meaningful conversations or ideas related to long-term projects, improving security, family, property, and home. You’re seeking clarity in your personal life now, but with a Lunar Eclipse also on its way, emotions are just as big, and it can be difficult to make a decision. While things may be coming together on the home front or regarding living conditions, and ideas can blossom now, energy levels are up and down, and responsibilities are strong on you. You have much going on both personally and professionally, and there is a temptation to pile more on, which of course, should be tamed. Keep things simple for best results.
You’re paying extra attention to details, news, and ideas emerging now, dear Scorpio, with Mercury and the Sun heading into alignment. It can be a mentally busy time, and a plan or project can blossom. It’s useful energy for sorting things out and solving problems, although energy levels may not match mental activity with a Lunar Eclipse about to occur, amping up the emotions. Words expressed now can pull up emotions, and it’s wise to keep things under control. At the same time, your ideas can be in demand now, and new details emerging about studies, trips, or projects can be well worth your while. Be careful that you don’t make all of your decisions from the head or your ego and ignore your heart in the process, but be careful not to swing to the other extreme as well. For now, you could be in a situation of “too much information.” Too many choices can be overwhelming. You have a bigger than usual appetite for taking on new interests or developing existing ones, but the temptation may be to go overboard with this. Try to focus on releasing tension now.
With the Sun and Mercury coming together in your resources sector, dear Sagittarius, there is a strong focus of interest and conversation on business matters, finances, personal possessions, issues of worth or respect, and values. There can be a turning point or fruition of a project. Something dawns on you, or there is important news coming in now that illuminates matters related to money, income, and relationships. This is very logical energy, and with a Lunar Eclipse also on its way, you should watch for moments when a more sentimental approach is preferable. It can be a little too easy to overdo spending or other indulgences at this time since you can have a hard time deciding where to put your energies. Part of you wants to stir things up and test your feelings, and another wants to enjoy what you already have. Aim to avoid swinging from an overly analytical to a too-emotional frame of mind, when a balance between the two is ideal.
The Sun and Mercury are heading into alignment in your sign, dear Capricorn, and whether or not you want it, you’re heard loud and clear! Your communications are impactful, but it’s important to consider that a Lunar Eclipse in your opposite sign is about to occur as well, pushing emotional buttons. The combination can be rather intense and sometimes confusing. You can come to significant realizations and epiphanies, but things are a little raw, so you may want to take some time with them. Note, too, that others are talking about you, more so than usual. You might be privy to missing details or new information. There can also be some tension between your desire for companionship and your urge for more freedom or independence. While you can be tempted to push your agenda, it’s better not to push yourself, anyone, or anything.
You can experience a strong urge or need to talk about the past right now, dear Aquarius. The Sun and Mercury are about to join forces in your privacy sector, and you can have an epiphany or experience Illumination regarding a private or past matter. You might see something you missed, or a conversation can bring up new information. You might reawaken a topic from the past today or see an old matter in a new way. You are better able to communicate or rationalize a matter that, before today, was difficult to express and understand. Still, a lunar eclipse is about to occur, and while mental energy is intense, emotions are building, too, and the result can be confusing. Words can have more sting than usual, for example. Part of you wants to tuck yourself away, but the need to work through your routines, work, or daily affairs is strong. Whether you’re seeking escape and peace of mind, or if you want to put problem areas behind you, it’s best to take things one step at a time now.
You’re seeking clarity on a plan or friendship now, dear Pisces, or you could be playing with new ideas on long-term projects. There can be sudden ideas or realizations, and your social life is likely to be quite animated. It’s a fantastic period for cultivating contacts, getting involved, networking, sharing ideas or time and energy. Valuable new connections can be made. Progress occurs through groups, like-minded people, friends, networking, associates, and experimental or innovative ideas and approaches. Your personal happiness goals or cherished causes can be in focus. Still, we tend to swing from an overly objective approach to a too emotional frame of mind today and tomorrow, and there can be confusion as a result. You might feel torn between personal interests and a commitment to someone. It may be best to enjoy some release of ambitions, tension, or pressure, and simplify things as much as possible so that you can make sense of epiphanies and discoveries occurring now.
