Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Responsibilities can feel particularly pressing, dear Aries. People may be criticizing more than supporting early today, so aim to make yourself happy first and foremost. As the day advances, however, it’s easier to see the need to pull back and replenish yourself. You’re embracing this active period for coming to a better feeling of harmony with family or beauty and peace in the home environment. New information or contacts can motivate you to make improvements and positive changes, and warmth in your personal life is precisely what you need to decompress. The Moon’s move into your social sector today is another reason for taking your mind off problems.
While there has been some pressure on you in recent days, dear Taurus, today holds much promise for making connections with others, particularly on a mental level. You are communicating in a particularly positive manner, and others are taking much interest in what you say. People you meet or news you read today can help point you in the direction of positive growth and change related to transportation, learning, and studies. Things that keep you connected, such as phones, computers, or even vehicles, can also figure strongly or they’re subject to improvements now. There can be a happy feeling that you can rise to a challenge.
This is a generally good day for work and business, dear Gemini, although it may begin with some pressures. If an epiphany comes now, aim to view your discoveries from a practical angle and with as much detachment as possible. As the day progresses, it becomes increasingly easier to enjoy yourself. Someone might help you achieve your goals, or point you in the right direction of growth and advancement. Advice about money or business can be valuable today. Plans may come together with finances, work, or other practical matters. Nevertheless, the Moon heads into your adventure sector, and your non-material goals are assuming more and more importance. This transit further helps you relax and decompress. A breath of fresh air is vital for your emotional well-being.
While the Moon’s move into your intimacy sector inclines you to more introspection than usual, dear Cancer, today holds beautiful energy for positive experiences and connections with others. Your personality shines, and others may especially enjoy being around you. You could be guiding or steering someone in the right direction through the sharing of helpful information or advice. It’s a good day for public relations or simply for positive feedback. Your approach is generous. Finding new or renewed ways to express yourself can be rewarding, and you certainly need to unwind and enjoy yourself after tense days.
While recent days may have been on the tense side, dear Leo, you seem to be ready to embrace the idea of growing and improving and this helps you move past problem areas. Supporting others with helpful advice or specialized knowledge can be enjoyable now. You’re looking within, but you’re also staying in touch, and this balanced approach will serve you well. You might connect with the right person or with your own intuition, helping you resolve long-standing problems that have been dragging you down. Efforts toward improving health, wellness, and energy levels can be worthwhile now. The Moon moves into your solar seventh house for a couple of days, and it’s a good time for leaning on someone or putting more energy and heart into your relationships. This can also be a time of the month for some wheeling and dealing.
There could be a new connection made now, dear Virgo, or something or someone could inspire you to move forward on a personal goal, dream, or plan. A person’s encouragement can mean the world to you now. A friendship may feel more hopeful, and a relationship can benefit from improvements and refinements. These days, you’re discovering other levels to your relationship needs, or a new understanding of what you are willing to give, and this clarity benefits you greatly. With Venus and the North Node of the Moon aligning in your sector of friends and groups today, a fortunate connection may be made or positive energy is with you for networking, communicating and sharing ideas, and learning from others and your experiences. As well, the Moon moves into your work and health sector, and you’re ready to take care of some details.
The Moon moves into harmony with your sign for a couple of days, dear Libra, and you’re likely to find easier channels for expressing your feelings. Today is good for creating, sharing, and enjoying yourself. You’re a little more playful, which is excellent energy after some tense or inhibited days. You’re likely to feel more positive, confident, active, and forward-focused. Even so, you can make a meaningful connection that helps in the pursuit of your more worldly goals. People in high places may be looking on you especially favorably today, fortunate connections can be forged, or work may be more pleasurable now. You seem to be able to promote yourself and your interests quite successfully.
With the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, family activities, home life, and endeavors that remind you of the need for comfort and familiarity assume more importance. After busy days, this can be a welcome change. However, making some contact can be beneficial as well with Venus and the North Node coming into alignment. This is a great time to expand your horizons in some manner. There is more openness in your connections with others right now, and you can be particularly effective at teaching, guiding, and sharing ideas. Someone may be opening up to your ideas and your unique outlook or helps to boost your self-image.
The Moon moves into your solar third house today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re likely to be busy although not especially focused in the coming two days. That’s just fine, however, because the purpose of this Moon transit is for you to put your feelers out and collect information rather than hunker down. Today can also bring you into touch with your desire to improve your life as Venus aligns with the North Node. This is a good time to make contacts who contribute something valuable to your life. You may be able to draw upon resources you never knew you had. New ways of relating can be pleasurable. Or, you might make a contact that helps you manage money or who readily supports you. Your natural enthusiasm and charm are probably enough to sell a good idea or plan right now.
While recent days have been more emotional than practical, dear Capricorn, you’re in the frame of mind for taking care of business today. However, connections with others can be especially supportive and meaningful, as well as a rich source of ideas. Collaborating or partnering up can be very productive now. With Venus in your relationship sector in alignment with the Moon’s Node, you may attract helpful people into your experience, or you might enhance an existing bond. People or information you come into contact with tend to point you in the direction of growth and improvement. You are looking to feel alive, vital, and vibrant through other people or relationships. You are especially attractive to others now, and you could have the opportunity to show yourself in the best light.
There have been some prompts to get your priorities straight and deal with your responsibilities in recent days, dear Aquarius, as doing so can make you feel stronger. You may be recognizing the need to let go of something or to make changes in existing projects so that you can move forward. Your intuition or someone can help you further your work or health interests today. There can be an opportunity to make valuable contacts through work or pursuing daily routines. The Moon enters your sign today, bringing your emotions out of hiding and into the light. Your craving for a feeling of connectedness with others does leave you a little more emotionally vulnerable than usual, but you’re also braver about going after what you want.
While things may have been more tense than usual in recent days, dear Pisces, today’s energies feel more forward-looking. You may meet up with someone who makes you feel good about yourself or who encourages you to express your more affectionate, romantic, or creative side. Advances in the areas of creativity, romance, or hobbies can be more evident. Connections can be made that promote your interests, and especially the more heartfelt ones, whether they’re for work or play. Ideally, the last few days have brought you into closer touch with your expectations in your relationships, even if this was a tricky process. You can now use this to your advantage since knowing what or who you want makes things a little easier. The Moon moves into the sign just behind yours, and getting some extra time for emotional healing and renewal can also do you wonders.
