Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies are good for playful, creative, and amusing activities, dear Aries. There is not much focus or direction just for now, but a bit of freeform can be good for you. It’s a time for remembering to have fun or to get creative. It would be best if you had some leeway. Still, it would benefit you to consider areas of life where you’ve been too slack or where you’ve been going your own way when a more structured, organized, and disciplined approach would improve your life. Home and family life may benefit from a more disciplined or orderly approach since uncertainty or disorder on the home front can very frequently prevent you from thriving in other areas of your life.
TaurusYou’ll likely prefer to stick closer to home or with regular routines today with the Moon’s transit of your solar fourth house all day, dear Taurus. You can be more introspective, requiring a little more time to regroup, renew, and relax. It’s a good time for activities that boost your relationship with loved ones or roommates, as well as soulful moments on your own. Center yourself now so that you can take advantage of coming opportunities in the world of communications. Make extra time for comfortable and comforting activities. You’re more inclined to see things in terms of their origins and the past. You can be particularly sensitive to criticism today, and it makes sense to focus on strengthening areas of your life that leave you feeling vulnerable. However, since you can’t possibly shield yourself from all outside criticism without building a wall around you, it makes sense to also work on self-acceptance. Consider that you may be harder on yourself than is healthy.
GeminiThe day’s energies are a little scattered, dear Gemini, but you’re expert at managing and adapting. You may not have the opportunity to focus on any one thing, but with flexibility, you can get a lot done. Distractions are likely, so avoid attempting to force concentration if it’s not happening naturally. Multi-tasking is fine for you right now, and can even benefit you. Thoughts of the past are powerful today, and you could find yourself changing your mind about a matter. Try not to get too absorbed in dissecting and analyzing things that take too much time away from those things that genuinely need your attention. It can benefit you to consider ways to bring more structure to your working or financial life, as disorganization or a rebellious attitude can affect your sense of freedom to pursue happiness goals and enjoy yourself with friends.
CancerYou’re in an especially practical frame of mind today, dear Cancer. You might aim to tie up loose ends before pressing on. With the Moon in your solar second house all day, you’re more inclined to appreciate what you have. You tend to seek ways to boost your feelings of security and comfort. Look also for ways and activities that nurture positive self-worth and self-perception. Keep in mind that you are not especially objective just for the moment, so that hard decisions shouldn’t be made yet if they can be avoided. Smaller efforts towards improving your finances or daily life can help in a big way. You might also examine whether resistance to following all the rules or conforming to others’ expectations of you is standing in the way of personal growth. Bringing some order and structure to your life can benefit you.
LeoThe Moon transits your sign all day, dear Leo, and you’re setting the pace. Your desires and needs are upfront and center. Allow your emotions to report to you rather than rule you for the best results with this monthly transit that lasts over two days. Do what you can to enjoy a sense of emotional renewal and a special focus on personal needs. The desire to do your own thing and go your own way is stronger than usual. Attitudes that are no longer serving you well may become painfully obvious as the day advances, but the good news is that this motivates you to put them behind you. You can be particularly sensitive to judgment or criticism. Do what you can to avoid dwelling on missed opportunities, but aim to face up to problem areas rather than sweep them under the rug.
VirgoYou are tying up loose ends from the past, dear Virgo, and you could be withdrawn as you handle certain matters today. Letting go isn’t always straightforward, but when it’s happening, it helps to consider that you’re clearing the path for future growth. Themes of putting things behind you occur due to the Moon’s transit of your privacy sector–a monthly transit that extends over two days. It’s a good time to rest, reflect, and renew yourself emotionally. Some kind of emotional retreat can be helpful now. There is a genuine need for repose and perhaps some anonymity as well. As the day advances, you might be sensitive to ambiguities in your social or romantic life. There can be some frustration if someone is showing less kindness or doesn’t seem to understand you. Look for ways to manage pressures and responsibilities while not completely ignoring your emotional needs.
LibraThis can be a good time to pursue your personal interests with not much in the way of interference, dear Libra. It’s a time for appreciating the value of a friend or for sharing something of yourself and contributing in some manner. You seek to feel a connection to something higher than yourself. You prefer to gather inspiration from your networking or friends and then come to your own conclusions. Tomorrow, your ruling planet turns direct after many weeks of retrograde motion, and soon enough, you’ll feel that you’re turning a corner. Today, you’re in a strong position to examine fears related to the direction of a relationship or ambiguity about where you’re headed in life, in general, particularly if you feel some outside pressure to figure it all out.
ScorpioYou’re emotionally oriented towards attending to your larger goals, dear Scorpio. Or, your responsibilities are more strongly on your mind now with the Moon’s transit of your solar tenth house all day. As much as you’d like to be productive, you can feel on the verge of something but without a clear plan. Still, you might naturally take the lead. Others don’t seem to let you get away with much with this monthly transit. Take things easy and don’t force anything, as errors are very likely if you push. It’s a good time to tune into any concerns you have regarding your long-term goals, education, or free time.
SagittariusThe Moon harmonizes with your sign today, dear Sagittarius, and this tends to boost your mood. Even so, it’s another day when you feel things are shifting or your feelings are in flux. As such, it may be best to keep things open. Channel tension into something energetic and positive. Some variation of your typical schedule can be emotionally refreshing. Proving a point may not be worth the energy or the effort. Letting the facts reveal themselves requires patience but may very well be more effective. As today advances, it might benefit you to examine ways you may have been holding yourself back creatively or in a close relationship. Conflicts with a partner may arise from issues of feeling too obligated or dependent. Whether you’re leaning more towards going your own way or sticking with tradition, it would be helpful to find a compromise or balance.
CapricornThe Moon spending the day in your intimacy sector points to the need to dig a little more deeply, dear Capricorn. You’re not inclined to enjoy an activity that feels empty or barely scratches the surface of a matter. Getting in touch with your deeper self and inner desires can be important from time to time, and this is your inclination now. Self-honesty is critical to this process. This way, you avoid living your life too often on auto pilot. You’re now identifying problems and looking for answers to recent complicated feelings or events. You can feel quite motivated and inspired to take charge of your private life. It would benefit you to examine relationship goals and expectations since nurturing a relationship and meeting personal, family, or household responsibilities can often work at cross-purposes, leaving you exhausted. Aim for a better balance.
AquariusYou might find yourself in a supportive role today, dear Aquarius. You’re also more sensitive to those things in your life that feel out of balance. It’s a good time to collaborate or let someone in, but it’s important to retain ownership of any decision that might come out of the process. Adjustments necessary in a relationship are easier to make right now. Even if changes made in your interactions are subtle, they definitely count towards making improvements. Consider ways you can better organize your time and the balance between personal interests and duties or chores. Ambiguities or feeling drained can weigh on you over time, and you can end up feeling quite behind or overwhelmed. If you take things one step at a time and set realistic goals for yourself daily, you can build up your strength.
PiscesToday’s energies favor attention to your daily routines, dear Pisces, even if you’re not inclined to feel particularly directed. This week has been one of several important shifts, and next on the agenda is Venus ending its retrograde. While it’s sure to contribute to a sense of moving forward, it’s still a shift, and you can feel in a state of flux or limbo. Keep yourself busy for best results today since it helps you feel more useful. Other times favor big-picture thinking, but for now, work on the puzzle pieces. Sorting out odd ends means you can move ahead with a sense that you are carrying a lighter load. Still, it can benefit you to take a hard look at areas of life where you’ve been refusing to play by the rules and missing out on opportunities in the process. Consider that you may need a little more structure and order to thrive in some areas since a disorderly approach can add to insecurities.
