Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There is much to process today and tomorrow, dear Aries, with Mercury and the Sun aligning in an area of your solar chart that rules news, learning, connections, and busy work. You’re looking to feed your curiosity, connect with others, get out and about, and become more active in your neighborhood or with acquaintances. Today is excellent for engaging in helpful conversations and solving problems, mainly related to health, confidence, the body, as well as professional matters. There can be a significant discovery, clearing of the air, epiphany, or conversation. Pay particular attention to details, news, and ideas presented to (or around) you today and tomorrow with the Sun and Mercury joining forces in your communications sector. An idea or project can blossom now, and it can be significant. You might gain some clarity on your studies, trips, or projects now as new details emerge.
Today and tomorrow, you may see a financial, ownership, or respect issue with more clarity and objectivity, dear Taurus, as the Sun and Mercury join forces in your resources sector. Both bodies form creative aspects to Chiron and Pluto now, and it’s a powerful time for coming up with creative ideas related to money, business, relationships, and studies. Something might dawn on you, or there is significant news coming in now that helps you make decisions about these matters. You’re giving special thought to making your life more comfortable and secure. Pay close attention to ideas generated now. New insights, ideas, and perspectives on finances can figure strongly as further details emerge. Helpful information can come your way, or may already be in place — it only needs to be processed, organized, and sorted. There can be a turning point or fruition of a project first considered in March, or new developments related to an issue from that time.
The Sun and Mercury join forces in your sign and connect creatively with Chiron and Pluto, dear Gemini, influencing today and tomorrow. You are inclined to verbalize your desires, and your voice and personal presence are undeniable now! Others are talking about you or people may be wanting to know your opinion or advice on a matter. Friends and lovers are in your corner right now. There may be an epiphany or culmination of a project, and you’re able to see details that you skipped over in the past. There can be significant realizations, epiphanies, and clarifications occurring today and tomorrow, and in many ways, this can be a time of mental renewal and increased decisiveness.
With the Sun and Mercury coming to an alignment in your privacy sector, dear Cancer, there can be a strong urge or need to talk about and analyze the past today and tomorrow. You might enjoy an epiphany or experience illumination regarding a private matter. You might see something you failed to see before, or a conversation can bring up new information that allows you to come to a more definite conclusion. This can involve reawakening an old topic or the seeing of a past matter in a new way. There can be a releasing or purging moment involved with bringing something to light, too. You’re inclined to analyze and process recent events or ideas, and ideas coming to you now can be highly significant.
You’re in an active period for cultivating contacts, getting involved, networking, and sharing ideas and time with others, dear Leo. With the Sun and Mercury coming together in your solar eleventh house and connecting creatively with Chiron and Pluto, you can have new insights into, or sudden ideas and realizations about, friendships, group associations, and long-term goals. You can enjoy real excitement and hopefulness about the future. Your personal happiness goals or cherished causes can be in focus. This configuration helps clarify a matter, mainly related to friendship or a pet project. Alternatively, there may be further developments on an initiative that had its roots in March, and that is now gaining traction.
This can be a time for getting noticed for your efforts, skills, intelligence, and voice, dear Virgo, with the Sun and Mercury coming together at the top of your solar chart. Of course, with more visibility, there is more responsibility, too, as your words have more impact than usual now! Today or tomorrow, you might receive special attention in a public or professional sense, or your communications and creative works are coming across particularly strongly. Problem-solving skills are high, and others seem to support your ideas. New insights into your career or life path can emerge, or there may be a significant clarification or a vital realization. Plans for new directions can be significant now. You may get a window into career and life path goals or professional matters and responsibilities, which you now see in a balanced, logical way.
You can come up with significant and valuable new ideas and plans related to learning, sharing, and thinking today, dear Libra. Illumination can occur today and tomorrow on a mental level as the Sun and Mercury come together in your solar ninth house. A partner or family member can help clarify your thinking. You can be gaining perspective on a matter and drawing meaningful conclusions, and there can be a significant discovery or connection made now. Conversations, news, and thoughts occur now that help you clear up misconceptions and make definite plans. Blanks are filled in, mainly related to studies, personal interests, travel, publishing, or a communications project. You may feel compelled or excited to share your ideas, beliefs, and personal philosophies with others.
The Sun and Mercury are about to align in your intimacy sector, dear Scorpio, elbowing you to look within for answers as well as to seek out deeper involvement in, or commitment to, a project, venture, or relationship. You’re not interested in fluff at the moment as you pursue more meaningful or absorbing experiences. As such, some endeavors aren’t going to make the cut and are likely to fall by the wayside. You can be giving a lot of thought to a private or hidden matter, or you may be moved to speak about something personal. This is a time for clearing the air, but it’s important to watch for an overly technical or intellectual approach to self-expression today. You might reach conclusions about a relationship or yourself, as you see a matter more clearly. The Sun and Mercury form creative aspects to Chiron and Pluto, and ideas coming to you now can be most excellent and unique.
Today is strong for moving a step back on an emotional level to take a good, objective look at a situation, dear Sagittarius. It can be a day when you discover a missing puzzle piece of information or when especially meaningful conversations and conclusions happen. Let others lead the talks and listen carefully for best results now. Mercury and the Sun align in the sign opposite yours, and mental energy is intense and in the spotlight. With it, you might get to see a person or partnership more clearly. Your mind is busy processing, sorting, and organizing your thoughts and ideas today, and interactions or conversations with someone can help jumpstart important thinking. Relationships themselves can be the primary topic of discussion now. Some emotional detachment can be quite helpful at the moment. Conversations happen that may not engage your emotions, but that can be very constructive, fair, and supportive.
The Sun and Mercury are moving into alignment, dear Capricorn, and communication issues tend to dominate. Sound energy is with you for sorting out and gaining clarity about work and health matters in a logical manner. There can be an epiphany or realization about a health issue or solution and a work or service matter. Problems in your daily life may come to quick resolutions. You may be in the spotlight for your work and services, or a work or health matter may gain traction or clarity. You’re inclined to do a lot of reasoning things out and attending to details today and tomorrow. Details tend to serve you well as you remember important things or fill in some blanks now.
The Sun and Mercury join together in the sector of your chart that rules pleasure-seeking activities, romance, creative projects, and hobbies, dear Aquarius. This alignment may point to a clearing of the air, a moment of epiphany, news, or an overdue conversation related to any of these themes today and tomorrow. You can be particularly communicative, articulate, and perhaps dramatic! This Sun-Mercury alignment might also point to sharing your ideas about or with a lover, children, or friend. You stand to gain some clarity about creative projects, a relationship, course, or a hobby. You’re taking more pride in your work, ideas, and beliefs today, and others are taking note. Creative projects could reach a turning point, or there can be a romantic revelation.
With the Sun and Mercury’s alignment in your solar fourth house, dear Pisces, there can be big ideas and meaningful conversations or ideas related to long-term projects, improving security, family, and home. You’re gaining clarity in some significant way (or area) of your personal life now. It’s a time for clearing the air and starting fresh. It’s also a beautiful time for entertaining or conducting business at home. There may be meaningful conversations about or with family, or things may be coming together on the home front or with living conditions. Ideas can blossom now, so be sure to pay attention to what you come up with today and tomorrow.

Today’s Modal Balance

Today’s Lunar Phase
LUNAR PHASE: DISSEMINATING
Moon 135 to 90 degrees behind the Sun.
Sharing our knowledge with the world is a major motivation at this stage. We believe we have gained much knowledge and wisdom through our experiences, and want to ensure others have the benefit as well.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on June 4th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected–or will perfect–in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours so that if an aspect involving the Moon is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect involving inner planets has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a lifetime).
