Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury stations and turns direct today, dear Aries, and while this change of direction brings less indecision going forward, today can be a little confusing. There can be improved communications and more information that helps you move forward. Over the coming days and weeks, you’ll find life a little easier to navigate as projects or appointments begin to move forward, and motivation increases. Home projects that were left undone now resume. Keep things simple for best results, and take your time! Helping you with this is a Sun-Neptune aspect that encourages some de-emphasis of the material world as you attend to your spiritual and emotional needs, particularly related to your hearth, inner world, home life, and family. Ideas can come together quite nicely. Do what you can to connect with the part of you that has faith that things will work out well. Support might come from loved ones, and there can be strongly sentimental feelings experienced.
TaurusThe Moon in your privacy sector all day encourages you to take things easy and keep a low profile, dear Taurus. With Mercury’s station today, it comes at a good time–an emotional recharge or taking a light schedule can be ideal now. Mercury turns direct after a retrograde phase since June 18th. It’s good news, but because it’s a shift of direction, there can be some disorientation temporarily. While it’s best not to jump into action, new launches, or major decisions, you’ll enjoy some forward motion on delayed projects in the coming days and weeks. Further information can arrive that facilitates decision-making. Aim to work on activities that help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress. For now, a Sun-Neptune transit helps you go with the flow as it draws out your compassionate side. Through a forgiving and kinder look at situations and people in your life, you could arrive at a nice feeling of peace and freedom. You may be helping someone out, which makes you feel good. People are more inclined to recognize your value as a friend today.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, encouraging you to seek out like-minded people or kindred spirits, dear Gemini. While the end of Mercury’s retrograde today can come as a relief, there can be a bit of chaos or some misunderstandings today as the shift occurs. In the days ahead, clearer communications are likely, information comes through, or previously delayed initiatives move forward. With Mercury’s current transit of your solar second house, this can be about money, personal possessions, or business. You’ll feel better equipped to move your plans ahead and make informed decisions. Ease things forward in a few days. Helping you take things easy today is a Sun-Neptune trine that helps you let go of any tendencies to control things. Ironically perhaps, this is the way to feel more personally powerful. You can enjoy some inspiration and imagination surrounding business and finances or your practical affairs. Activities that bolster feelings of inner strength can be most magical now.
CancerThe Moon is in your sector of reputation, status, and career all day, dear Cancer, and you quite readily take the lead, preferring to tackle your responsibilities. Mercury’s retrograde ends today, and this can help release blocks or delays. The shift itself occurring now can be on the confusing side, so take your time. In the coming days, you’ll benefit from a more straightforward approach to life but observe and process before jumping into decisions. Ease into moving your plans ahead for best results. Helping you with this is a Sun-Neptune transit that encourages a faithful perspective. You might receive a positive boost or spirit-lifting news. Your imagination is active, and you have a stronger ability to empathize with others. Problems that were frustrating in recent days tend to seem less daunting, perhaps because your faith that things will work out for the best is strengthening.
LeoThe Moon moves in harmony with your sign all day, dear Leo, and a Sun-Neptune trine further encourages a “go with the flow” energy. Aim to learn from frustrations emerging now as Mercury stations direct, as you’ll have many opportunities to improve conditions going forward. With today’s shift, it may be wise to choose your words and your battles wisely. Today is not ideal for entirely new projects and endeavors, but you’ll be seeing forward movement on delayed projects in the coming days and weeks. Delays lift or word comes through that helps you make decisions and ends a state of limbo. You may enjoy increased faith in your dreams and ideas. Behind-the-scenes matters tend to go particularly well for you right now, and you may begin to see a grand design behind recent events in your life. It’s a time for seeing the meaning behind recent events. With the Sun harmonizing with Neptune, gaining personal power involves letting go of overthinking, controlling, and micromanaging. Avoid looking for outside appreciation for your efforts. Instead, do what makes you feel good from the inside out.
VirgoThe Moon spends today in your intimacy sector, dear Virgo, and you prefer not to skim the surface of things. Digging deep is more appealing to you right now. Mercury has been retrograde for over three weeks, and that cycle is coming to an end today. Remember, however, that communications can remain confusing as Mercury changes direction, and perhaps even more so. It’s not an ideal time to bring up sensitive topics just for the time being, as misunderstandings can be frustrating, and in some cases, wholly unnecessary. However, you’ll be seeing some forward movement in relationships or pursuits that have recently suffered from delays or blocks. Tricky problems and indecisiveness should clear in the days and weeks ahead. Mercury’s forward turn in your social sector promises more clarity and understanding with friends. With today’s Sun-Neptune transit, you can feel inspired by a special someone or from a relationship. Putting more faith in someone can be rewarding, as long as you’re careful the faith is truly in that person rather than a dream of them! This transit may instead help you put aside worries long enough to enjoy yourself more thoroughly. A friend might help set your mind at ease.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Libra, and your relationships are strong on your mind. Mercury turns direct after more than three weeks of retrograde motion. While this means an imminent clearing of obstacles and delays, the day itself can be somewhat confusing until you get your bearings. In the days ahead, however, projects might unblock, and delays lift. You might see work projects advance and communications open up, particularly with associates and bosses, parents, or managers. You’ll begin to feel the fog lifting in the coming days, and you’re likely to be more precise about your goals. Career matters tend to resume or pick up speed. You may come to a sense of peace with the Sun’s harmonious aspect to Neptune. This can be particularly the case if a career move or idea comes together. It’s a good time for dreaming up new and very creative ways to further your career or larger goals. Your imagination is vivid, and you can feel moved to pursue a dream.
ScorpioThe Moon transits your work and health sector all day, dear Scorpio, and you’re likely to feel emotionally satisfied once you’ve handled your duties. You may need to deal with communication or transportation breakdowns today, but while these things have been more frequent in the past three weeks, most problems will begin to clear up shortly. There can be a real sense of moving forward, but you need to correct past mistakes and omissions to clear the path. Be a little more mindful of communications, as misunderstandings are likely with Mercury at its station today. Information comes through that helps decision-making. A turnaround is likely for some of your projects, particularly publishing, sharing, legal, or educational matters. It’s best not to rush to put your plans into motion just yet, and helping you with this mission today is a Sun-Neptune trine. Concentrating on the bigger picture can bring much joy today as you let go of a tendency to overthink, which may have been dragging you down in recent days. Forgiveness and compassion can be very healing, whether you’re giving or receiving these things.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your creative sector, dear Sagittarius, encouraging you to share your happy feelings. Nevertheless, there can be some confusion or misunderstood communications today as Mercury changes direction. Mercury’s direct motion helps financial and intimate matters gain clarity or move forward. It can help clear recent blocks and slowdowns. It might help fill in the blanks on some issues, which leads to better choices and decisions. You’ll be in good shape for negotiating about money or time-sharing in the coming days and weeks. Today, be more mindful of directions and communications. With a Sun-Neptune aspect occurring now, you give more power to your imagination and dreams. Drawing on compassion and understanding comes naturally and benefits you today. Family or loved ones can inspire you, or your dreams relate to improving your intimate and personal life. Ideas coming together now can be golden.
CapricornToday’s Moon transit points to the need for some rest or special attention to your personal life, dear Capricorn. Also today, Mercury is shifting direction after over three weeks of retrograde motion. While this shift helps clear information clogs, the shift itself can demand some reorienting today. Look forward to increased clarity, particularly in your relationships, as Mercury slowly regains its regular speed, and you feel more confident about making the right decisions. For now, take special care in your interactions with others and consider that you may be missing important details. Don’t jump too quickly into action just yet! Instead, allow new information to trickle in. Helping you take your time today is a Sun-Neptune transit. It helps you let go of a tendency to control or oversee things. Nonverbal communication can speak louder than words today. Letting something go or performing a compassionate act can be particularly rewarding now.
AquariusToday’s Moon transit encourages your curiosity and your need for variety, dear Aquarius. Today’s energies can be frustrating if you’re attempting to push forward plans, mainly related to work or health, but there are indicators that things are unblocking. The key is to be patient a little while longer. Mercury turns direct after over three weeks of retrograde motion, and routine matters tend to iron or smooth out. Information comes in that helps you make stronger choices and decisions. More clarity is on its way. A Sun-Neptune transit today helps you tap into patience. It’s a good idea to listen to your strong intuition regarding practical matters. Your appreciation of the little things in your life or your daily life fills you with good feelings. Some aspects of your work, services, or support can lift your spirits today. Look for ways to boost spiritual well-being. With this transit, you gain personal power by letting go of tension or attempts to maneuver and control events.
PiscesMercury changes direction and ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Pisces. This shift can help unclog information so that your choices and decisions are clearer in the days and weeks ahead. It’s time to come at problems from a new angle! Further information emerges, and this releases energy to flow forward. You may be reconsidering a goal or dealing with something that you overlooked so that you can clear the path for moving on. Also today, the Sun and Neptune harmonize, helping you slow down and enjoy the moment. Going with the flow is something that tends to come naturally to you, but due to a hectic pace in recent days, you may need a small reminder. Somebody may be looking to you for your wisdom, or people seem more compassionate, interested, and sympathetic to your cause, in general. You are in your element with this transit, and you express yourself comfortably and creatively.
