Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You may be feeling a little more driven than usual today, dear Aries, and you can bring a nice spirit of innovation to business or practical affairs. The balance between responsibilities and home life can be off kilter these days, and demands from both camps continue to be intense, likely to peak tomorrow with the Lunar Eclipse. Today, aim to pace yourself and envision your life direction or career matters in a creative yet structured way. There might also be a great find or business opportunity now. Your mindset is practical but also progressive at the moment — a great combination.
The Moon’s transit of your spirit sector all day stimulates your instincts to explore, venture out and about, discover, and question, dear Taurus. Your more unique qualities stand out pleasantly, and you can be feeling rather inspired. If you need to break free from the past in some way, today is strong for doing so, as you’re especially forward-looking. There is good energy for teaching and sharing, but you are at your best when things are little freeform or when you can be spontaneous today. Harmony between Uranus in your sign and the Moon provides you with a nice jolt of psychic energy. You may very well receive glimpses of the future and where you want to go.
Your desire for emotional excitement is strong and growing today, dear Gemini. This can be a time of self-discovery–you’re making valuable connections and getting to understand your desires and motivations more intimately. It’s a day for digging deep rather than blindly seeking out comfort objects to fill you up. There can be some sweet bonding going on with loved ones or special and comfortable time spent with yourself! The focus seems to be on emotions, close ties, dreams, and your inner world. You’re in a favorable position to synthesize recent experiences into something meaningful. Passions are rising with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow.
This can be a time of mediating problems or paying particular attention to close relationships, dear Cancer. There is a nice feeling of forward motion, and you can benefit from a sense that friends are supportive and in general agreement. It’s a relationship-oriented day, and it may come naturally for you to ease off a little when it comes to personal agendas and plans so that you can get closer to someone or your feelings on a matter. There is a stronger focus on the balance between independence and togetherness with eclipses in your sign and opposing sign this month. You seem to want both, and this is possible, but it can require some adjustments and creativity. Tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse will likely help you get in touch with your feelings about someone or a situation.
The focus these days is on finding a better balance between work and rest, dear Leo, and on this day before a Lunar Eclipse in your work and health sector, today is no exception. However, there’s a nice flow of energy with you for accomplishing your work and filling responsibilities with less effort than usual as the Moon in your solar sixth house harmonizes with Uranus. There can be an opportunity arising that helps you reassess your expectations if they’ve added too much pressure or strain to your life. You are brilliant and creative in your methods, particularly with work, schedules, and daily life today. It can be a good time for seeing new ways of doing things that make your life a little more enjoyable.
Today brings especially forward-looking, positive energy to your life, dear Virgo. You may be putting more than usual effort into your creations or expressing your beliefs and ideas with more faith and enthusiasm. You are feeling generous with your affections as you emerge from a couple of days of keeping to yourself and perhaps some rising tensions. The Moon in your creativity sector in harmony with Uranus today can help lift your spirits, and you may be feeling particularly reinforced by someone who seems to be understanding your ideas, perspective, and beliefs. You can be feeling rejuvenated, even with this week’s tensions and concerns and a Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow. Unrest in your social or romantic life these days can motivate you to come to solutions and resolutions in the coming weeks.
The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, dear Libra, and with a Lunar Eclipse occurring in this same area of your chart tomorrow, it’s a time of paying particular attention to your needs for comfort and familiarity. You’re prioritizing emotional needs and replenishment. New situations and settings are less relevant to you than exploring new feelings and ideas today, and yet there is certainly an emphasis on the “new” when it comes to attitudes, approaches, and methods. Domestic improvements, changes, and renovations can be in focus. Your unique wisdom comes from self-awareness and self-knowledge today as you’re feeling connected with loved ones or your own more profound needs. With your enthusiasm for emotional understanding, people around you may open up as well.
You’re in good shape for diversifying, connecting, and sharing today, dear Scorpio. Even with Mercury’s current retrograde, it’s a decent time for work on communications projects, learning, and studying. While relationships are in good shape today, you’re also keeping some level of independence or detachment. You could also be very active reviving old projects or interests, and experiencing a creative reawakening of sorts now. Because you’re living in the mind these days, be sure your heart is behind whatever you share or commit to now. While the flow is pleasant now, there can be some growing concerns about your duties with a Lunar Eclipse set to occur tomorrow, and it makes sense to center yourself now. Pay special attention to self-care so that you can bring your best to the opportunities opening up for you.
There is nice energy with you for your practical affairs today, dear Sagittarius, including money matters, work, and routines–you can be innovative and progressive with these things. There can be some tension building over a financial or ownership issue which can peak tomorrow with a Lunar Eclipse about to occur in your resources sector. For best results, use competitive feelings to your advantage by allowing them to motivate you to up your game, but avoid stressing yourself out in the process–it’s not worth it. Look for opportunities that arise due to your confidence in your talents in the weeks ahead. As you help and share, you naturally draw resources your way. The key will be openness to new methods and approaches.
There’s a pleasant splash of creativity or originality in your approach to the world today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon in your sign and harmonizing with Uranus in your sector of joy. Creative efforts and romantic pursuits are favored. It’s a good day for connecting with others in light, happy ways, for finding your voice, and for coming up with new ideas. You see opportunities all around you, and you have charm to spare. The Moon in your sign and tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse also in Capricorn can undoubtedly pull up all sorts of feelings, and perhaps some tension or even childish feelings. People who don’t know you well may be seeing your best, and those who do may be seeing your worst right now. This is a remarkable few days for connecting with your feelings on an important matter–an eyes-wide-open period for you.
With the Moon’s transit of your privacy sector all day, dear Aquarius, you tend to retreat somewhat from the demands of daily life. At least on an emotional level, you may be keeping parts of you to yourself, and you’re not as accessible for the time being. It’s about reorienting yourself. This will change when the Moon moves into your sign on Wednesday, but until then, pacing yourself and treating yourself gently makes sense at the end of this cycle. With a Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow, important emotional discoveries are in the works! Your intuition is working powerfully now. There is wisdom to your spiritual ideas, and others might seek out your advice.
Today’s energies are strong for self-expression through and with others, dear Pisces, with the Moon in your friendship sector in harmony with Uranus in your communications house. There is a natural, spontaneous, and creative feel to the day, particularly related to networking, group involvements, friendship, and partnership. Especially with a Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow, it’s a good time to aim to reach out to others in different or new ways. Today is good for popularity and support, and friends tend to bring good news or advice. There is a natural need to detach yourself temporarily from people and situations that have recently added stress or pressure to your life. Even with Mercury’s retrograde, there can be a nice flow or ease in your interactions.
