Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Today holds reliable energy for getting in a good word with higher-ups, dear Aries, or coming across well, in general, not only with charm but through others’ recognition of your commitment. Family-oriented work or work around the home can be especially satisfying and beneficial now. Today is also useful for taking little steps towards improving relationships, both with family and with bosses or authority figures. Familiarity, the world of the five senses, and comfort are especially appealing much of the day, although the Moon’s move into your communications sector later today may encourage you to do a bit of branching out, if only on a mental level. You feel stronger if you feel secure and independent. You want to know that you’re on top of things, especially regarding money, home, family, and security matters, and you can be in an excellent position to make reinforcements now. Slowing down a tad may very well improve the quality of your work or projects.
The Moon in your sign and its happy aspects can give you a good feeling of being on top of things, dear Taurus. You have a zest for action today, and you have wonderful personal presence. Your ability to get to the point or your straightforwardness works in your favor. It should be reasonably easy to find outlets for self-expression, and asserting yourself is natural. From late afternoon, your emotions tend to settle in, and you’re inclined to take some time for comforting or soul-centering activities. You’re in great shape for attention to small but essential tasks step by step and one by one. This is a good time for being taken seriously and communicating effectively, or for gaining a solid sense of your priorities. Getting organized comes naturally to you now.
The Moon continues to transit your sector of endings until later today when it enters your sign, dear Gemini, pulling you out of your shell. You crave more interaction and a real feeling of being alive and part of the action. You are inclined to attract attention once the Moon is in Gemini. Until then, however, you can be quiet but active. It’s natural for you to hesitate, observe, and look to the past or settle some issues. You may very well find that you’re better off under the radar just for now. You can come up with some great ideas about making money, doing business, and home improvement today, and work spent on individual or private projects can benefit you greatly. You may be motivated to complete a project you’ve left unfinished.
You’re in good shape for both cooperation and independent action, dear Cancer. The Moon in your social sector until late afternoon encourages your sense of community and a desire to seek out like-minded people. If you’re sharing time with others, it may be most natural and beneficial also to share activities, as you seem to bond with others in an active role at the moment. Conversations can lift your spirits or inspire exciting new ideas and plans. From late afternoon forward, you can feel a strong need for some downtime, or at least time away from overly demanding situations. You seem to function better if you have some emotional space now. Conserving energy and building strength makes the most sense at this point. You’re also more appreciative of a logical, orderly approach to your world.
The Moon continues to transit your career and reputation sector until late afternoon, dear Leo, and this keeps you on your toes. You might take action on a professional matter, and uncover the energy and gumption to push ahead. You could be in a position to take the lead on an issue, and this position always seems to become you! Your heart is in your chores or responsibilities now so that they can be handled more efficiently. Later today, you have a greater need for the chance to pull back and see things more objectively. You continue to see the value of putting more order into your life or eliminating waste, but your need for a break from overthinking is beginning to dominate.
Emotional energy is intense today but also easily mastered and channeled into satisfying activities, dear Virgo. Creative self-expression comes easily and naturally, and you may feel drawn to people with similar ideals and outlook, but you are also happy to interact with people who can expand upon these things, or introduce you to new ideas. It can be a busy time for studies, collaborating on projects, shared activities, or organizing a group endeavor. The practical side of your friendships, group associations, and projects benefits from your attention to detail. The benefits of slowing down to get something right becomes evident to you now.
The Moon continues to transit your solar eighth house today, dear Libra, making it a good time for observing things you might typically miss. Even so, connections made can be exciting, or you can feel quite satisfied with putting a plan into motion. It’s an ideal time for healing, particularly if you aim to let go of emotional baggage. As the day advances, you’re even more definite about wanting to be productive, and your ambition is pleasantly stimulated — business benefits from using strategy in your planning. A conversation may be integral for getting yourself into a very positive, can-do frame of mind today. Later today, the Moon moves into your adventure sector, and you’re interested in new ways of doing things.
Your confidence in a relationship or special person in your life is likely to strengthen today, dear Scorpio. It’s unlikely the most independent of days for you, but it’s potentially strong on a social level. Even if you don’t use it, you’re interested in someone’s input right now, since enjoying company is what it’s about. You may be pulling into yourself for some much-needed introspection later today. In fact, you may feel stronger if you take a step back and observe. As the day advances, you’re in a rather practical frame of mind. Your expectation that others meet you halfway improves your connections. You’re patient with others, and there can be some restoring of faith through practical help or kind gestures and offers.
You’ll find that people are acting rather than reacting today, dear Sagittarius, and this creates a healthy and smooth flow of energy. Others, and especially a partner, can play a starring role in your life as the Moon moves into your partnership sector late afternoon. You can be determined to make changes and improvements as the day advances, too. Until then, you’re especially focused on managing details, chores, and tasks. There is excellent energy with you for being productive and focusing on priorities. It can be a strong time for building your health, both mental and physical, or for making your daily routine work for you.
Feelings flow smoothly today, dear Capricorn, and you may find it especially easy to strike up a conversation or to express yourself and your needs. Your natural talents tend to be showcased or enhanced in some manner now, and people may be noticing your awareness or perceptiveness. As the day advances, you’re in good shape for finding the motivation to get things done through a relationship or particular person. The fact that others can rely on you is in the spotlight and desirable. Pairing up to accomplish something important to you is also favored now. The Moon heads into your work and health sector for a couple of days, and you’re more practical-minded.
The Moon continues to transit your home and family sector, dear Aquarius, and you seek comfort and familiarity. However, later today, the Moon heads into your sector of joy, and you’re encouraged to connect, share, and take a chance. Today is good for feeling not quite so bound by emotions and for taking more interest in making things happen. Second-guessing yourself or things may have been exhausting recently, and now, problems are more readily solved. As the day progresses, your priorities seem pleasantly clear. Putting your domestic life in order may be attractive, as you see it as the first step for making important changes. You’re on a mission to feel more organized, in control, and on top of your life.
You can be exceptionally resourceful today, dear Pisces. Creative urges are strong, and the compulsion to do something with them is building. A bit of healthy competition can be highly motivating now. Later today, the Moon moves into your solar fourth house, and you’re likely to seek out comfort and peace. Even so, you’re still in the mood to get things done. You recognize the value of some discipline, or you have the opportunity to see the benefits of your hard work, planning, and effort. You want to feel that you’re useful and organized, and putting something into order can be most attractive to this end.
