Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesRelationships improve today with extra effort put towards validating one another’s input, dear Aries. Making a special effort to listen before speaking can do wonders for a relationship. You’re also bound to see the value of implementing more (or better) rules and boundaries. Orderliness, even if it’s just a little more organization than usual, can be empowering now. You may be latching onto studies, personal interests, or projects that are not only absorbing but also transform your life. It’s a time for going the extra mile for people and projects you care about. The morning brings a greater awareness of your responsibilities. The Moon moves into your resources sector, and you seek the chance to regroup.
TaurusThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Taurus, and you seek emotional refreshment. The morning can prove to be a little challenging with mixed feelings or drives to manage. However, as the day progresses, you come into your own. Getting along with others can be the key to successful business dealings, and in your personal life, there is a stronger sense that you agree on a fundamental level. You’re finding ways to get into a healthy pattern in your everyday life or with routines and habits, and it benefits many different life departments. You might discover new ways to earn more, or, more importantly, increase your enjoyment of an endeavor. You’re ready to solve problems!
GeminiWith the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house today, dear Gemini, a gentler pace suits you well. You’re in a great position to find creative ways to meet your needs without putting pressure on yourself. With this transit, you’re inclined to wind down, recuperate, regenerate, and heal. Still, you’re also in good shape for opening the lines of communication with a special person in your life, and relationship improvements or breakthroughs are very possible now. Or, you might want to take a creative project to a new level. The strength with which you present yourself becomes you. There can be some tension or resistance to manage before you come into your own today, but if you move slowly and steadily, you’re more likely to reach your goals in ways that make you proud. Try to balance your time well, taking due time for yourself since you’ll be far better off in the long run.
CancerWith the Moon’s move into your social sector for a couple of days, dear Cancer, you’re more invested in your friendships or happiness goals and dreams. This transit stimulates your desire to be involved or to contribute. There is a natural need to detach yourself temporarily from people and situations that have you feeling under pressure. Still, this morning, you can feel blocked or tied down as the Moon clashes with Saturn. Take extra time for creative and imaginative pursuits, which will be especially healing now. It’s also a good time for better cooperation with family or loved ones, particularly through communications and willingness to express yourself and listen to others in a balanced manner. It can be a time for a better understanding of something or someone, mainly related to the past, family, or your roots and background.
LeoYou tend to focus on activities that give you a sense of accomplishment today, dear Leo, with the Moon’s move into your solar tenth house. This transit, lasting until Thursday, favors a goal-oriented approach. Especially with recent indecision, this can be refreshing, although not without its minor challenges. Professional interests and concerns, or responsibilities, tend to assume more importance in your life right now. Today’s energies are also good for feeling connected to someone or motivated by a personal interest or cause. Equality in your conversations improves your connections. Without the need to talk over one another, communications flow nicely. It can be a time for discovering (or rediscovering) ideas, projects, and even a person you love.
VirgoWhile early today, there can be a tendency to worry or stew if you’re in limbo on a matter, dear Virgo, the day shapes up to help open communications. Your ability to express your feelings openly and creatively is strong now. There may be a chance to come to the rescue or draw on your talents. It’s a good time to dream up plans and ideas, and an instinct to listen more than talk is on point. A bond can improve as you pay more attention to validating someone’s feelings and opinions. You might enjoy pouring some extra attention or energy into a special project. Reinventing an existing or old project can figure strongly.
LibraThe Moon moves into your solar eighth house for a couple of days, dear Libra. With this transit, you’re more inclined to listen to gut instincts, reading between the lines rather than taking things at face value. It’s a fine time in the lunar month to investigate, research, and analyze. It’s also wise to do a little more observing. In the process, you might come to a better understanding of a situation or a concept that has been difficult to accept. Look for ways to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt. You’re also in great shape on intellectual levels today, finding it easier than usual to bond with others through shared or similar beliefs. You might enjoy new ways of thinking or different perspectives.
ScorpioWith the Moon’s move into your partnership sector today, dear Scorpio, you’re more involved and approachable. Your confidence radiates through others, or you’re seeking some balance and a different perspective on your life. You can also benefit from self-study or deeper conversations with someone close to you. You can become especially interested in a project or relationship. Areas of imbalance in your life can be more evident, and you’re quick to correct them. Doing one thing well, instead of many things satisfactorily, is most rewarding at the moment, and this approach suits you particularly well.
SagittariusThe Moon heads into your work and health sector for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, and the desire to get busy, organize, or tidy up your affairs can be strong. You can be especially focused on straightening out important areas of your life, and perhaps also quite interested in improving your diet or routines. You’ll probably do better for yourself in the long run if you can handle the practical things so that you can put them behind you. Still, you’re likely to find particularly interesting things to do and learn today, and pacing yourself comes more naturally as the day advances. You’re in a good position to improve relationships, and the support or inspiration from special people in your life can be much appreciated.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your solar fifth house for a couple of days, dear Capricorn, and this transit can serve to draw you out of your shell. Early today, you could feel somewhat blocked or conflicted with the Moon’s clash with Saturn. Simplifying makes the most sense, and you might come to a better understanding of someone that helps you feel more productive. Negotiations tend to fare well right now, so be sure to take advantage because communications may not be quite this easy in the coming days. Work problems tend to iron themselves out quickly, and the motivation to make needed changes can come through a special enjoyment of your work, services, and projects.
AquariusThe desire to settle in and seek out comforting, grounding, and familiar activities today is strong, dear Aquarius. The Moon heads into your home and family sector for a couple of days, and it’s a good idea to slow your roll and recharge your energy. You crave feelings of security and rootedness. There can be a special enjoyment of personal memories, and some form of emotional retreat is appropriate now. Still, today is good for communicating, and you enjoy feeling understood. Sharing ideas or activities might enhance (or create) a bond. While there can be some clashes between your need to wind down and your ambitions in the morning, it’s best to honor your need to take a pause and center yourself.
PiscesThere is good energy for communicating your wishes today, dear Pisces, even with some bumps or obstacles this morning. You may very well bring others together with your advice. Connecting with someone through ideas or beliefs can be in strong focus. Cooperating seems to be the key to getting things done and to achieving a stronger feeling of inner balance. While the social elements of your life are in the spotlight, you’re also in a good position to understand some of your deeper needs. You might discover creative ways to interact with the people you spend extra time with, although you may need to deal with some level of disorganization or a feeling of overwhelm before arriving at this point.
