Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Your communication skills are in good form, dear Aries. It’s almost magical how you can connect with the right information or person that you need to push your plans forward. As well, you’re in good shape for making progress on a project or business endeavor. Your stamina level increases and your emotions are settling in. You’re connecting powerfully with what you know and what you own.

There might be positive feedback or encouragement for creative or romantic endeavors to enjoy today and tomorrow. Educational matters are favorable, and a satisfying teaching or learning experience may be part of the picture today.
This is a time for honoring your emotional and personal needs, dear Taurus, as the Moon transits your sign and you’re in the lead. It’s hard to ignore or brush aside your feelings on a matter.

Consider what you may need to let go to move forward lighter and freer. Building your inner strength can figure strongly now, and can be very beneficial. While the tendency is to contemplate and process recent events, you can also feel quite ready to resolve a problem or otherwise put something behind you.
The Moon in your friendship sector all day today suggests a need for nonjudgmental companionship, dear Cancer, or a desire to release yourself from recent pressures to perform.

You have an urge to branch out, particularly with friends, but you’re also feeling quite grounded now, such that finding a happy middle ground is well within reach.
You’re likely to come across especially warmly today, dear Leo, with Mercury rather newly in your sign and harmonizing with Ceres.

Communications, in general, are favored, and someone could be opening your heart or mind to new ways of relating and connecting.
The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re more interested than usual in keeping company with someone special.
