Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith today’s Moon, you’re in the mood to diversify, experiment, and enjoy different ideas or experiences, dear Aries. We’re heading to a Mercury-Mars transit, and as the day advances, you can feel tense, as if something is missing or out of place. There can be boredom with your routines, but you should be careful not to make too much mischief because of these feelings, as they can invite unnecessary conflict. It’s possible that today’s frankness can help bring clarity, but it can be messy with misunderstandings. The focus can be on past problems that are returning. The temptation is to push a matter or to jump into action before getting all the facts, which can be unwise. Dissatisfaction with the status quo can be at the heart of restlessness now, but take your time on a plan of action. It may very well be that you’re putting too much pressure on yourself. Concentrate on only the most critical tasks instead of spreading yourself too thin today. Watch for overstating or rushing conversations and conclusions.
TaurusThe Moon spends another day in your career and reputation sector, dear Taurus, and your goals and priorities are in sharper focus. A Mercury-Mars square coming into play today, and there can be some rising tension as the day advances. The chances of tripping up run high due to impatience or perhaps ego matters. You may want to avoid anger triggers if you can. Speaking too soon about an issue is not a good idea now, especially with Mercury still retrograde. On the one hand, this transit can be motivating if you need a push to step up your game, but frustrating on the other if pressure builds and you feel the need to make a hasty decision. There may be a frustrating unresolved problem from the past nagging at you or driving decisions. Don’t expect others to read your mind today, even if you think the signals you’re giving them are loud and clear. Ask for what you want instead, or wait until a better day to assert your wishes.
GeminiYou might enjoy a pleasant conversation or come across information that inspires you or encourages an interest, dear Gemini. However, a Mercury-Mars square comes into play as the day advances, and tensions rise. Turning to others for a sense of stability could be a lesson in frustration. If you’re facing defensiveness, wait for a better day to tackle major issues, as blockages are very likely to be felt right now. People seem to either be spilling too much or omitting important details. Rushing to conclusions is not a great idea since Mercury is still retrograde, and we may be working with incomplete information. It’s a good idea to avoid impulsive purchases, decisions, and communications. An issue surrounding values, money, questions of ownership, or respect can be in focus. You may want to wait to draw important conclusions until you have more facts and more patience. Watch for rushing things.
CancerYou have a stronger need for strategy today, dear Cancer, but the tendency is to rush things through. If rushing makes you skip steps, try to slow down. Especially as the day advances, it can be difficult to concentrate. A chaotic atmosphere can frustrate you, so do what you can to take short breaks to center yourself and hear yourself think. While you could feel pressured to make a decision or a statement, it may be better to hold off until you are in a more objective frame of mind. Since Mercury is retrograde in your sign and forming a square with Mars is in your sector of career, authority, and rules, the tendency may be to resist others’ wishes. Or, you might want to push an idea when others are too absorbed in their desires to give yours due consideration. You may be provocative now, whether it’s your intention or not. Consider avoiding words you may later regret, and avoid feeling pressured to take action when you’re not fully aware of all the angles of a situation.
LeoThe Moon spends another day in your opposing sign, dear Leo, and your emotional focus continues to be on others or a new perspective. The need for balance is strong. As the day advances, a Mercury-Mars square comes into play, and with Mercury retrograde, there can be some tensions or missteps. You might want to avoid quick decisions or hasty conclusions. Objectivity is hard, and information at hand can be missing or incorrect. Or, impatience clouds the ability to see the best course of action temporarily. Try to avoid pushing an idea that others are not ready for, as interactions can be edgy and frustrating. It can be an impulsive time for decisions and communications, but you can consciously choose to avoid rushing both of these things. Aim to know more about an issue before jumping to conclusions or action.
VirgoThe Moon spends another day in your work and health sector, dear Virgo, and you can feel accomplished as you address problem areas. Keeping yourself busy seems the best strategy at this point in the lunar month. As the day advances, a tense aspect between Mars and retrograde Mercury comes into play, leading to impatience. Consider that you may be putting too much pressure on yourself (and possibly others) to do things quickly. Pay extra attention to what you say, and be especially cautious with getting from one place to another, to be on the safe side. The chance of errors runs a little higher than usual. Let your ideas mature before sharing, as you might be subject to criticism, which can weaken your motivation. Dreams are sometimes best kept to yourself until they take better form. Chances run high that you do not see things especially clearly right now, and the same goes for others. Try to examine those things that pull up the most frustration, as they are clues to unresolved issues that may be driving your behavior or causing unnecessary stress in your life.
LibraThe Moon continues its transit of your sector of joy, dear Libra, and you seek more time to enjoy and express yourself. As the day progresses, there is a Mercury-Mars square coming into play, which tends to wind you up. There’s a tendency to rush things with this transit, and it’s best to watch for decision-making that feels premature. You may not be seeing essential details or important information may not be at hand. You should probably be careful not to come on too insistently in professional dealings. It’s best not to force issues all-around. Partnerships can suffer a little with too-easy irritability. Disagreements tend to come from rushing and impatience, so you might want to slow down and do your best not to jump to conclusions. Aim to let stressors motivate you to work on something on your own or to set your own pace, which can be satisfying.
ScorpioYou need more time to regroup, renew, and relax today with the Moon transiting your home and family sector, dear Scorpio. As the day advances, a Mercury-Mars square can increase the possibility of errors due to impatience. It may be best to avoid speaking and acting hastily, as there is a real chance that what we see now is incomplete or misleading. This transit can create an atmosphere of nervous tension. You might lose patience and feel pressured to make a decision. It’s possible that it can lead to positive things, such as finally taking action on a matter you left hanging. Still, it can also lead to hasty decisions or unnecessary arguments. Jumping into action before getting all the facts can be costly now. A difference of opinion might bother you more than usual because you feel rushed in other areas of life. Try to pull back on the pressure, and don’t overload yourself with things to do.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, and there’s a stronger focus on learning, connecting, and communicating, dear Sagittarius. While you’re enjoying a lively pace, it’s a busy day, and the trick will be to keep your head on straight as it advances. Mercury heads toward a square to Mars, and with Mercury retrograde, there can be tension coupled with a lack of information. It’s time to reconsider your plans and make sure they truly align with your true desires. This transit can aggravate ego issues. We may feel we are right and perhaps communicate too quickly under this influence. Aim to observe rather than act impulsively now. There can be some pressure to make last-minute decisions, but you may not be equipped to make healthy ones temporarily. Be careful with your wording with loved ones. Use the competitive energy generated now to work on a productive project and avoid snap decisions for best results now.
CapricornThe Moon continues its transit of your resources sector, dear Capricorn, and you’re seeking more security and comfort. You crave and need some predictability. As the day advances, a Mercury-Mars square comes into play, and it’s wise to be careful about how and what you communicate. Communications can be rushed, and irritability comes across loud and clear. You may not have the full picture of a situation, making wrong conclusions probable temporarily. You may want to prepare for the need to adjust your schedule, as wires can get crossed today, and plans can turn around. While competition can motivate you to improve, defensiveness and impatience should be tamed. It’s all too easy for differences of opinion to frustrate more than usual, and others can seem disagreeable or provoking.
AquariusThe Moon transits your sign again today, dear Aquarius, and your emotional desires and personal needs are upfront and center. For best results, let your emotions report to you rather than rule you. A Mercury-Mars square suggests some tensions as the day advances. Particularly with retrograde Mercury in your sixth house and Mars in your communication sector, there can be agitation. Keep in mind that misunderstandings are highly likely and that people may not mean what they say or say what they mean! You could feel provoked or worried about a situation. Watch for hasty actions and reactions, particularly verbal ones, but also quick moves and decisions. Try not to succumb to pressure to decide something on the spot since the facts are not all in front of you. Changes in your daily schedule can frustrate you but are important in the long run. Others, too, are speaking before thinking, and while truths may emerge as a result, it’s also possible that what’s said is misunderstood.
PiscesThe Moon spends another day in the sign right behind yours, dear Pisces, and you may be a little withdrawn. For the most part, you’re enjoying this break from the usual! You might seek a healthy escape from the demands of daily life. As the day advances, a Mercury-Mars square comes into play, and there may be delays or tension related to miscommunication. It’s all too easy to get worked up over something that may not honestly matter in the long run. Try not to rush into making a statement or taking action under these conditions since the information you have to work with today may not be complete. For best results, aim to use this transit’s competitive energy to improve your understanding of a situation or to step up your game. Take extra care getting around, communicating, and drawing up conclusions. It’s probably better to ride a situation out and see how you feel about it later.
