Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You can be pleasantly busy most of the day, dear Aries. Relationships are particularly enjoyable and productive right now, and agreements tend to work out well. You may very well inspire someone. As much as you’d love to keep the momentum going, it can be difficult to focus or concentrate as the day advances with the Moon and Jupiter opposing one another across your sectors of communication and movement. This is just fine if you’ve been working hard and now need to release tension. If not, be a little more vigilant than usual with details which can be overlooked all too easily. Stretching your mind is a great exercise now, however, and with the Moon spending today and much of tomorrow in your light, communicative, and curious solar third house, you’ll do well to keep your ears open for interesting tidbits and possibilities.
The Moon’s transit of your resources sector today is fantastic for tucking some emotions away so that you can deal with practical matters, dear Taurus. It’s a brighter time for attention to the material world, although the Moon’s opposition to Jupiter can challenge your need to simplify and take care of basics. In fact, Jupiter has been encouraging you to seek out more complicated situations or in-depth activities this year, and today, there can be some restlessness as a result. Try not to fret things too much and aim to enjoy the moment. Take steps to wind down. Helping you with this is a Sun-Venus parallel that encourages a calm approach to your world. It also boosts your magnetism.
This is a time for doing something extra for yourself, dear Gemini, although there is a temptation to overindulge. Part of you may be wanting to please someone, but you’re also striving for some independence, and this can be confusing. Remember that excess has a price even if the payment is deferred, and aiming for smoothness and moderation can do you a world of good now. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and your emotional wants and needs are in the forefront–they’re hard to ignore! While you can feel some restlessness as the Moon opposes Jupiter tonight, you might also recognize areas where you’ve overcommitted, and you now need to change things up.
Today and most of tomorrow, the Moon spends time in the sign just behind yours, dear Cancer, making it a good idea to wind down and decompress. Focus on putting any harmful elements that may have accumulated over the past month behind you at this time in the lunar cycle. If you can manage to get chunks of time to yourself or in peaceful environments, you’ll be in great shape. Even so, the Moon opposes Jupiter later today, and you can feel a little torn. Circumstances may be such that you realize something has to give for a better balance in your life. Find ways to balance your attention to physical needs and emotional needs. People are curious about you and intrigued by you now with the Sun in your sign parallel Venus in your private sector. A bit of mystery becomes you.
Today’s energies are rather pleasantly non-ambitious, dear Leo, and taking a bit of a break from demanding situations makes the most sense now. The Moon opposes Jupiter today, even so, and this can point to some desire to reach beyond your means, but it’s also a rather lazy influence, and you may very well feel like getting comfortable. A Sun-Venus connection can help improve your relationships and personal appeal. You’re seeking harmony and will do what you can to keep things on an even keel. Relationships can benefit from a light touch. Collaboration is more comfortable than usual.
You’re bringing more warmth to your image or your career these days, dear Virgo, and this can be especially notable today. You may feel a little torn between dedication to your personal plans or development, and service or commitments to others, however, but this can also lead to creative workarounds or satisfying division of your time. Your plate is full today, as you have much going on both personally and professionally, and there is a temptation to pile more on, which should be tamed. Keep things simple, but push yourself just a little if you know what you’re doing and could use some extra motivation.
The Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit, dear Libra, and you’re ready to do things a little differently, if only for some emotional refreshment. There may be a situation of too much information or too many things to do today, and this can lead to some wasted time. Too many choices can overwhelm you to the point that you don’t choose anything. Alternatively, you have a bigger than usual appetite for taking on new interests or developing existing ones, but the temptation may be to go overboard with this, and you’re best off releasing tension rather than adding more things to your agenda. Keeping things in check helps you enjoy today’s extra dose of enthusiasm and a positive outlook.
You’re in the mood to give special attention to a project, activity, or person today, dear Scorpio, with the Moon in your solar eighth house. Even so, concentration tends to break down later today, and decisiveness can also take a hit, primarily due to difficulties deciding where to put your energies. The Moon’s opposition to Jupiter tonight can stir up restlessness — part of you is bent on stirring things up and testing your feelings, and another wants to tune out complications and instead enjoy what’s right in front of you. It can be a little too easy to overdo spending or other indulgences now, but streamlining comes with fewer consequences. Focusing on your inner goals and values will do much more for your happiness than too much attention to external signs of success.
While the Moon spends the day in your partnership sector and encourages a focus on others, dear Sagittarius, as the day advances, you’re likely to feel increasingly motivated to do something a bit different. It may be better not to push yourself, anyone, or anything right now, but letting your imagination go can be useful as you dream up new goals or ideas. If you feel a bit torn between your desire for companionship and your urge for more independence, it may be a good time to think about ways to improve or update your current setup, but try to do so with patience and without pressure. Be alert to a tendency to see-saw when it may be best to find a middle ground today.
The Moon’s transit of your solar sixth house today inclines you to want to get chores done, dear Capricorn, or to pay special attention to getting your life into better order. Most appealing now is the chance to sort out your life in small but critical ways! With the Moon’s opposition to Jupiter later today, part of you may be battling this tendency at the same time. Consider fending off rebellious urges in favor of sticking to the task until completion, but going forward, do aim to answer your calls for more attention to your needs for rest, or find your way to a middle ground. It may be better to conserve your energy for opportunity periods and to keep things moderate today.
You’d do well to enjoy some release from ambitions, tension, or pressure today, dear Aquarius, and take things easy now. The Moon spends the day in your creative sector, and leisure activities are more attractive to you than usual. As well, the Moon opposes Jupiter in your social sector later today, and you can be itching to do something a little different. Or, as much as you want to put all of yourself into a personal project or endeavor, there can be a call to share or collaborate. You’re likely to attract the most luck or favor if you tone down the tendency to overdo or overindulge, but indulging is just fine right now.
The Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, dear Pisces, encouraging you to take it easy. The Moon does brief battle with Jupiter later today, which can introduce some restlessness, but it can also inspire you to find the right balance. Jupiter is motivating you to grow, improve, and perform, but taking breaks from this mission makes sense. It’s a good idea to honor your need to wind down and play it safe just for now, but this doesn’t mean you can’t entertain new possibilities. You might feel a bit torn between the desire for alone time and your commitment to others. Ideally, you’ll get to a place of balance with your feet on the ground as you imagine and fantasize about what could be.
