Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can feel a strong desire to accomplish something significant today, dear Aries, but an equally compelling need to pursue your personal interests or explore your options. Because you’re only human after all, you can’t manage to do both full-on at once, so toning things down makes sense. Otherwise, you’re likely to be stuck in limbo, not entirely satisfied with anything that transpires. Routines and regular life can seem particularly dull to you today, or there can be a dilemma or misstep in business. The chances of being misquoted also run high. Taming restlessness can go a long way towards having a good day, with the Moon in your sign connecting well with the Sun in your communications sector.
TaurusIt’s a day for catching your breath with the Moon in the sign behind yours again today, dear Taurus. You may need a little more time to yourself than usual. You can feel, on the one hand, that you want to do something out of the ordinary and explore new places or ideas today. On the other, you want to get comfortable! The Sun, currently transiting your resources sector, encourages you to play it safe and stick to the tried and true. Jupiter, in your adventure and spirit sector, stimulates the desire to branch out and discover. If you can come up with ways to satisfy both your freedom-seeking side and your equally strong need to keep things straightforward and familiar, you’ll be in the best shape now. Aim for moderation so that whatever you decide to do doesn’t feel overwhelming.
GeminiThe Sun in a minor challenging aspect with Jupiter suggests some restlessness, dear Gemini, but there is also some creative energy to tap. You might overestimate your interest in something or underestimate the time and energy that you’ll need to complete it today. There can be some indecision to manage. You’re a little more inclined to act on ego or emotion rather than reason, particularly with relationships. Ask questions, as the potential for misunderstandings is strong. Watch that you don’t take on a challenge or project that eventually becomes a burden, and try not to overthink. You’re in a good position for self-renewal through activities that feed your spirit or expand your mind. You’re also in good shape for putting new spins on old ideas. Letting go of minor irritations allows you to enjoy the pleasant social energy of the day. Useful news or ideas can come in that lift your spirits.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your sector of responsibilities and goals, dear Cancer. You’re thinking ahead, and your mindset is quite practical. However, a Sun-Jupiter aspect can point to indecision. You may be dealing with competing urges between going it alone and sharing your activities and decision. As much as possible, try not to procrastinate or commit to something that seems a little beyond your means today. If you attempt to do it all, you may overreach and regret it later. Taming restlessness can go a long way towards having a good day. Old personal plans or pursuits can capture (or recapture) your interest, and you can have a lot of fun with them. Old problems might also emerge now, but resolving them can lift a burden from you, and life feels that much easier.
LeoThere can be pulls towards socializing and an equally strong desire or need to get things done today, dear Leo. There is a tendency to misjudge our capacities now, which can lead you to take on too much. People may be expecting far too much of you without much in the way of appreciation. You tend to weigh the pros and cons rather than jump into action. It’s best to blend and compromise than to overdo or overcompensate. Try to take a break from over-thinking unless you focus your energies on planning and strategizing, which tends to comfort rather than overwhelm. You might arrive at clever designs now. The Moon spends the day in harmony with your sign, and this transit helps you rise above problems or learn from them.
VirgoYou may face the need to make adjustments rather than forge ahead again today, dear Virgo. Take steps to narrow things down, pace yourself, and prioritize if you feel overwhelmed. Your expectations of others or your goals may prove to be a little off, and changes may be necessary. Promises made today can be hard to keep later as they may be half-hearted, poorly researched, or based solely on the feelings of the moment. You may be stuck when it comes to making hard and fast decisions with a Sun-Jupiter quincunx that pulls you in different directions. You could be tempted to agree to something to avoid the pain of indecision. However, it’s best to get in better touch with your real needs and wants. Helping you with this is the Moon’s transit of your intimacy sector, encouraging you to go deep and be honest with yourself.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Libra, emphasizing your need for others and the power of making connections. Gaining another perspective on a matter can be useful now. Even so, today’s energies can promote some indecision. Pulls toward new experiences and enjoying the comfort of the familiar can be equally strong. Or, there could be a dilemma between sticking to what’s familiar and branching out. If you stay on the fence, you are likely to feel like you’ve missed out, so you might aim to decide whether to adjust your expectations, find a compromise, or make a decision and own it. Any way you choose, at least you’re not left in agonizing place of inertia or overthinking. Plans may not get off the ground just for now, but this is a temporary condition. Allow your thoughts to wander but take more care when making important decisions.
ScorpioThe Moon spends another day in your work and health sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re in the right frame of mind to take care of details and loose ends. Still, as the day advances, it cannot be easy to focus. With the Sun and Jupiter at odds, you may be wavering between keeping things light and taking things a little further, and mixed signals can confuse. Enthusiasm can run high but then fall suddenly, much like a sugar high. Interactions with others may not go exceptionally smoothly just for now, or an intimate or financial matter can be confusing. This is a time for adjusting your expectations if you’ve been overshooting. There can be opportunities for pleasure and enjoyment emerging, and you’ll have better luck with them if you aim to let go of the tendency to overthink.
SagittariusWith the Sun and Jupiter at odds and dividing your interests, dear Sagittarius, you could feel that you need to go hard or not at all. While moderation can be tricky to practice under this influence, it can help bring you down to earth and ready to see and grab the opportunities of the day. Focus on freeing yourself of unnecessary mental burdens. While you may be disagreeing with someone about money or core values, it’s best not to focus too much on differences. Relationships can feel a little out of sync, but likely only need adjustments, particularly when it comes to expectations of one another and of the relationship itself. Avoiding big purchases or business decisions may be wise for now. Distractions aside, someone can help give you the perspective you need to relax.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, dear Capricorn, encouraging you to look within and trust your intuition. Still, as the day advances, decisions can be tricky. Distractions or divided interests can challenge your concentration. You may want to help others or get things done today, but you also have a strong need to go rogue or pursue your personal interests as the Sun in your service sector clashes with Jupiter in your sign. This dilemma can only be resolved by toning things down and compromising, but it can be challenging getting to that state. The tendency to gloss over problem areas is strong. However, your mood is generally forward-looking, and if you can manage to focus your energies on something fun rather than routine, you can enjoy yourself.
AquariusThe Moon spends another day in your communications sector, dear Aquarius, encouraging you to reach out and connect. Still, your desire to mingle competes with a strong inclination to keep to yourself with a Sun-Jupiter challenge coming into influence as the day advances. If you get too hung up on decision-making, you can miss out on getting much of anything accomplished. It’s best to make adjustments and compromises. Moderation is wise right now, although challenging to put in practice. Decisions can weigh on you quite heavily, and the answer may be to avoid overdoing things or trying to force an answer. Clarity will return soon. Today holds good potential for creative communications and fun diversions.
PiscesThe Moon spends another day in your comfortable solar second house, dear Pisces, and you’re seeking some predictability. The desire to stick with what’s familiar is strong, too, with the Sun currently transiting your home and family sector. The Sun and Jupiter are on different wavelengths today, however, and the desire to break new ground can compete with these conservative influences. You may have problems balancing your social and private life, and it’s best to try to find the middle road and aim for moderation. You might swing between remaining in a state of limbo to acting on impulse, but it’s best to find the middle road and aim for moderation. Try not to pressure yourself to do it all.
