Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Aries, drawing your strong attention to behind the scenes, background, and private matters. This Moon transit often encourages you to take the pressure off so you can regroup, but today, the Moon meets Mars and Neptune, keeping you active and your private life animated. Discoveries about your inner world can be exciting and motivating. You can experience a sudden desire to break from the past or to reconnect with it. Emotions bubbling up to the surface are strong, and perhaps a little surprising since they can be based on previously buried anger or desires. With Mars still transiting the sign behind yours until the 27th, this isn’t a very overtly active or visible time for you, in general. Do watch for a tendency to work against yourself with so much going on under the hood. Aim to focus on improving your life.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Taurus, meeting Mars and Neptune there, and there can be an exciting or animated quality to your social life. Networking stimulates all sorts of feelings now. You’re putting more heart and energy into dreaming up long-term plans and happiness goals. You’re looking for–or acting on– the inspiration for new ideas and goals. These transits might also stimulate the desire for friendship or to belong. There can be surprises or up-and-down feelings related to your social life or projects. You’re seeking a little more from your life than the usual now, pushing a little further or reaching a bit higher. Still, this is not a time to lock something down or insist on a definition or crystal-clear mission. You’re encouraged to put faith in something or someone special to you.
GeminiWith Mars in your sector of career these days, your responsibilities can be strong on your mind, dear Gemini, and there can be new ones surfacing. Today, the Moon aligns with Mars, and you’re likely to feel much better about yourself if you handle your priorities. Still, this is also a time for an active imagination and the need for some inspiration, which can help fuel your motivation to take care of things. Mars is heading into alignment with Neptune, fueling your desire for something a little more than ordinary to shoot toward. Business, professional, or reputation matters can be fruitful and subject to some excitement. Aim to draw upon the strength of your feelings to be productive and take the initiative, but do consider that it’s not the time to make big decisions.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your solar ninth house, meeting Mars and Neptune there, dear Cancer. You’re seeking some inspiration, and you can be quite enthusiastic about a plan, topic, or idea. Do watch for impatience, but consider gently pushing your normal boundaries now. You’re craving a connection or mission through what you do, experience, and learn. Your ideas or studies can be exciting. You might get fired up about a belief or concept or a new learning experience, and your vitality is strong. With an emphasis on the sector of your chart that rules opinions and beliefs, this is a time to nourish your spirit and expand your mind. Creativity and imagination are enhanced.

You can come up with some amazing ideas and discoveries about your inner world with the Moon’s alignment with both Mars and Neptune. A lot is coming in and very little coming out on an emotional level! If you feel that energies are bursting their seams, you might decide to pour extra attention into a pet project, interest, or research. Desires run deep, and they can be unusual, surprising, or magical. You might be tackling tricky power dynamics with a partner, or enjoying some exciting sparks and new feelings. It’s a fine time for making things happen with finances or intimacy. Still, a direct route to the finish line may not be apparent at the moment.

You may seem to need company or encouragement from someone to get you started. Your expectations from life may be higher than usual, and you tend to allow your curious and optimistic spirit to guide your day.
LibraWith your work or daily routines, you seem to bring added imagination, energy, and dynamism to your approach or methods, dear Libra. Productivity increases when you enjoy what you’re doing, and this is especially evident today. Getting things done helps free up your mind. You might take a creative approach to solving small problems and tying up loose ends. Concerning a possible health or fitness program, this can be a good time to do something different and perhaps more engaging or creative than the usual routine. The ordinary doesn’t appeal to you today, and you’re inclined to use different approaches with great results. Intuition or gut feelings tend to be on-point or hard to ignore today regarding work, health, and capabilities.

Situations that were previously frustrating can find resolution with a creative, dynamic approach. Your senses are powerful and perhaps working overtime.

Putting an idea into motion can be a strong desire or drive, or friendly competition has a similar effect. There can be an excellent discovery or news, firing you up and fueling your motivation. Something that’s said today could get you going, stirring you into action.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your money and resources sector, dear Aquarius, meeting Mars and Neptune. You’re in good shape for sniffing out overlooked assets, attending to financial affairs and valuables, and discovering ways to boost your comfort.
