Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can do a lot of analyzing, sorting, and making sense of the past today, dear Aries, especially with (or about) family. It’s not the time to push for answers, but it’s a great idea to do some gentle exploration. Ideas generated from conversations and reminiscing can be significant, and perhaps even defining! It’s important to be mindful of what you’re saying, but it’s a fine day for releasing a problem through conversation with someone you trust. New light may be shed on a past matter from your childhood or related to home and family matters. In the coming weeks, you’ll discover what this means for you. Your imagination takes you to inventive places now, and you might think up new plans or procedures, especially those that make life easier and more progressive, in and around the home or with your business. However, you may wrestle with insecurities or wonder whether to go your own way versus maintaining the status quo. Try not to take on too many problems that are not your own if you find people around you are a little cranky. You’ll quickly recognize the need for a mission today, even if it’s a modest one.
TaurusNew light may be shed on matters related to communications, dear Taurus, with the Sun and retrograde Mercury coming together today. You might rediscover an old interest or conclude that something you’ve been pursuing is no longer up your alley. Ideas occurring to you this week can spark a long-term project. This can be the beginning of new thinking about learning pursuits and projects, and you’re likely to see recent decisions in a new light. You can find inspiration with something or someone stirring your higher ideals and awakening your dreams. Interactions with a sibling or acquaintance can be significant, or incoming news redirects you. Gaining surprise freedoms or discovering new ways of doing things can figure strongly now. You may be dealing with some guilt about things you’re not accomplishing, but you can also learn much from your insecurities.
GeminiWhen it comes to money, business, valuables, talents, and personal possessions, pay special attention to ideas coming in today and this week, dear Gemini. Whether they’re circling around you or coming from within, it’s a time when ideas inspire you, leading to something significant down the road. Looking to the past for answers figures strongly. There is new, fertile energy with you for reviewing old problems and coming at things from a fresh perspective. Not everything is likely to make sense, as is often the case with new beginnings, but what comes out of conversations and thoughts today can be important later. Financial and business thinking can be especially unique. This can be the start of a new direction, but for now, take notes rather than push forward. You could be focusing on recycling old ideas or discovering that a particular attitude or project may no longer be motivating you. There may be a breakthrough of sorts that inspires you. Circumstances might seem to stimulate insecurities related to a friend, group, or finances, however. Watch that you don’t go along with others’ plans to keep the peace if your inner voice tells you something else. Keep an open mind and aim to learn about yourself if something touches a nerve.
CancerThis can be a great day for reviewing recent decisions and ideas, dear Cancer. Observations made now can lead to new ideas, improvements, or other developments that can be significant to you down the road. It’s a time for taking stock and thinking about changes you’d like to make. What you communicate today has more impact than usual with Mercury in your sign and conjunct the Sun, and with Mercury still retrograde, it’s a good idea to keep things simple. People hear you but don’t necessarily see the whole picture, so it’s important to be clear and mindful. Good energy is with you for drawing upon the past for ideas and recycling them in improved ways. With the Sun and Mercury, both in your sign, forming harmonious aspects to Uranus and challenging aspects to Chiron, there can be some ups and downs. If someone or something hits a nerve, then you know that a part of you feels that there’s room for improvement. Instead of concentrating on what others think, consider ways to improve yourself for you, not for anyone else. You have a little more courage to break free from routines today, which feels good.
LeoYou might enjoy a surprise memory or show of support today, dear Leo, or sudden inspiration and intuition that boosts your career, reputation, or long-term goals. There can be breakthrough actions occurring now. Ideas can come to you from dreams and impressions or from outside of you. Still, whatever their source, certain information you encounter today can be significant regarding letting go of bad attitudes or situations. There could be a secret revealed, a eureka moment, or you could otherwise be seeing old problems in a highly revealing new light. You’re opening up your mind to new approaches that can be truly valuable. There can be workarounds to problems that save you time or lead to other developments. Something changes your perspective on life. You need to put ego issues aside since it seems something larger or more important needs consideration. There can be small disappointments or unresolved problems from the past emerging for your attention, but it’s best not to take others’ views too personally. Resolve to learn from anything that seems to trigger feelings of vulnerability now.
VirgoYou can be especially sensitive to what’s going on around you and what’s said today, dear Virgo, with your ruler, Mercury, retrograde and in alignment with the Sun. What you communicate has a little more impact than usual, making it important to be mindful of how and what you’re saying or writing. Others may be giving you important feedback or ideas come through what’s shared in your networks, and they’re significant. It’s a powerful time to process, review, and rediscover old interests, decisions, and ideas. A friend from the past may reappear in your life, or you could come to a new understanding of an old friendship. Interactions today are encouraging and possibly quite fruitful, although you won’t have all the answers just yet. You are especially attracted to unique, different, or out-of-the-ordinary activities, ideas, and people. Changes seem necessary to free yourself from restrictive situations, but part of you is reticent or unsure. It’s best to observe and think things through before taking solid action.
LibraYou come into the position to review recent business projects, decisions, or ideas, dear Libra. Thoughts about your life direction and long-term goals are fresh, even if you’re looking at the same old problems or concerns. You might arrive at a significant conclusion about your next move, or about certain directions your life is taking. Work and health matters can benefit from a review or even a brainstorming session. Recycling or reviving old projects or ideas can be quite successful. Your communications have an impact now, so it’s best to be selective with your words. While this is not yet the time for making sweeping decisions, your observations today can be invaluable later. There can be some fantastic moments of inspiration. A nice change in your usual routine can pull up the need to improvise, which can be fun or lead to interesting detours. Avoid trying too hard to please people, and aim to serve yourself by meeting others halfway, as this protects you from growing resentments. It can be a fine time for identifying weaknesses or vulnerabilities that need attention.
ScorpioToday can be an important idea day for you, dear Scorpio, even if your ideas are currently in a raw state. Thoughts might turn to the past, or recent decisions and plans, and you’re looking at things in a very new light. The conversations you engage in now can be inspiring, especially interesting, and possibly quite enlightening. There is no need to force anything — just let your mind go. Buckling down in one area can release you in another. Workarounds can be inventive, and you might see an opportunity you missed in the past. You need to free your mind to enjoy this energy, so slight deviations to plans may result in interesting detours. You see opportunities you’ve overlooked or weren’t ready to see in the past. Still, something said can touch on your sore spots, which helps you understand problem areas better. The Moon spends the day in your sign, reinforcing both your sensitivity and courage.
SagittariusYou’re in a strong position to delve into your own psychology, intimate thoughts, and feelings, dear Sagittarius, especially through a review of recent events. Conversations about intimate or taboo matters can be helpful and particularly creative. There can be important conclusions, clues gained, or satisfying investigations now. New insight into an old relationship or your own psyche can be helpful and enlightening. The Moon in your privacy sector all day reinforces a helpful introspective mood. Some minor discomfort may be necessary for you to get over a hump. Problem areas can be more evident, which helps you focus on what truly needs work and attention. You might discover a new method or idea for making life a little easier. Dig deep, research, and keep an open mind, even if feelings and emotional attachments are complicated.
CapricornYou can experience moments of illumination today, dear Capricorn, especially related to a close relationship. You might look at something from the past in a new way, which helps free you up as you go forward. It’s not likely that you have all the facts or answers right now, but this is a time for some serious rethinking of matters. Counseling and advice can be in focus and helpful. Insights happening now can change your attitude or direction. You might revisit old conversations and remember things you overlooked in the past. While you see the dysfunctional elements of the past more clearly, you have a strong sense of the future, growth, and improvement, and this helps round things out. Reviewing old ideas can lead to a positive recycling experience, as new methods can come to light, which can be very important in the months to come. If something seems triggering today, you’re ready to learn from the experience. The Moon is transiting your solar eleventh house all day, tuning you into your needs for a sense of community.
AquariusToday’s energies are strong for looking at old problems in new ways, dear Aquarius, which can be helpful. You might gain important insight into a work or health issue as the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your solar sixth house. Ideas coming to you this week can be significant down the road, helping you fix problems and make meaningful improvements. It’s a turning point of sorts, moving you from a state of indecision to increasing clarity. You could be heading toward a better approach to healing yourself or taking care of your daily affairs. Favored most now are activities that support growth and play to your sense of invention and progress. You want to renovate, update, or innovate in some small way, and it’s a good time to breathe new life into old projects or routines, or reorganize in unique, helpful ways. It’s best to think about what you can do to improve and tweak current projects and ideas rather than start all-new ones, but your thinking about these possible changes and improvements is sharp right now.
PiscesThere can be fun developments or progress related to creative play and expression today, dear Pisces. Conversations and ideas can be the start of brand new thinking along romantic or creative lines. There could be a reconnection or news that gets you thinking or seeing a past relationship in a new way. New methods or solutions can come to light through a review of the past, which can be very important in the months to come. Today’s conversations can serve as significant turning points. Others are more inclined than usual to enjoy and appreciate your unique perception, advice, or viewpoint. If someone touches upon a soft spot, it’s a good time to explore why. While you can feel more sensitive than usual today, you’re also quick to turn it into a positive learning experience. Whatever might emerge now can help clear the air and lead you to understand yourself or a situation better. Coming to a new perspective on the past can help you start fresh.
