Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You can be busy but scattered as the Moon finishes up its transit of your communications sector in the first half of the day, dear Aries. After this, you’re craving comfort, familiarity, and quiet. Mercury moves into your home and family sector today and will influence things here until the 26th. During the next three weeks, you’re likely to make more decisions about home and family, or your conversations and thoughts more frequently turn to personal and domestic matters. This transit opens up communications with–and about–family. There can be times during this cycle when you don’t feel well-understood since Mars is also in this sector, and both planets are clashing with your sign. However, it’s a good time for assessing prospects and drawing up plans for long-term security and for paying your personal life some due attention.
The Moon’s transit of your solar second house tends to keep you in a practical frame of mind in the first half of the day, dear Taurus. You prefer to keep things status quo, although the energy of yesterday’s New Moon is playing on your ambitions to make improvements, particularly with money matters. As the day progresses, things pick up the pace. Also today, Mercury enters your communications sector, and until the 26th, you’re in particularly good shape for learning, studying, communicating, and connecting. At times during these three weeks, you could feel a little wired or stressed. If you manage to keep your wits about you and avoid mental strain or stress, you’re likely to enjoy the new information coming in and the connections you’re bound to make. This is the time to diversify your interests.
The Moon in your sign for the first half of the day keeps you on your toes, dear Gemini, as your feelings seem to take the lead. After this, you’re steadier and more content–more inclined to stick with familiar and comfortable settings and activities. Also today, Mercury exits your sign and moves into your resources sector for a three-week stay, stirring a mental focus on the practical side of your life. Your material affairs may often be where your interests lie in the period ahead. Thoughts and conversations might often turn technical or functional. You can come up with some fine money-making ideas, particularly when Mercury forms powerful aspects such as its alignment with Mars later this month, but much of the time, it’s more about building what you have and enjoying your life more fully.
With the Moon continuing its transit of your private solar twelfth house in the first half of today, dear Cancer, you’re likely to begin the day preferring some quiet or anonymity. However, once the Moon enters your sign, your need for emotional connectedness emerges. It’s a time for following your feelings. While this transit lasts only a couple of days (until Thursday), Mercury moves into Cancer today and will stick around for three weeks. This can be a mental or communications power period as this transit brings more clarity to your life after a period of relative reflection and perhaps some indecision. Until the 26th, you’ll be ready to put the past behind you, and you’re likely to have plenty of fresh ideas for the future. You have a stronger impact than usual when you communicate.
The Moon continues to transit your social sector in the first half of the day, dear Leo, and then heads into your solar twelfth house, at which point you’ll do well to pause your busy schedule and enjoy a couple of days in which ambitions move to the back burner. Emotionally, it’s time to heal, digest, process, and decompress. Mercury, too, moves into this private sector of your solar chart but will stick around for three weeks, closing up a communications cycle. It’s an excellent time for tying up loose ends on a project or study, as well as for contemplation, meditation, research, and behind-the-scenes study or work. Decision making can be a more careful and lengthier process during this cycle. Today’s energies are strong for seeing patterns in your life.
You continue to be in a take-charge mood in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, with the Moon at the top of your chart, or circumstances seem to demand you pay attention to priorities. Later, however, you’re ready for some recreation or an easier emotional focus. As well today, Mercury moves into harmony with your sign and your social sector for just over three weeks. This transit will last until the 26th but will recur starting in the middle of July, giving you plenty of time to dream up ideas, draw up plans, and connect with friends and networks. It might open up opportunities to connect with like-minded people. You seek or attract people who stimulate your mind, and people tend to be drawn to you for the same reasons.
Your mood for adventure and variety continues today, dear Libra, but the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart later today tends to draw out your more serious or responsible side. The Moon’s two-day transit here is good for getting back on track. Mercury also moves to this area of your solar chart today but will stick around here for a longer time–until June 26th. During this cycle, your thoughts can frequently turn to professional matters, plans, and goals, and your communications have more impact than usual, so it’s best to get behind whatever you’re communicating now. It’s a period for taking care of business, showing off your skills or getting attention for your abilities, and for packing a stronger punch in your communications. Your career may very well demand more of your analytical skills.
A reflective mood continues in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio, but later today, the desire to get out and about or to focus on your broader goals tends to take over. Mercury enters your solar ninth house today, and while it sticks around there until June 26th, it also moves in harmony with your sign. The planet of communication will spend more time than usual in this sector of your chart this year due to a retrograde next month. You may be less interested in mundane or routine matters during this cycle, preferring to do overview thinking and goal-setting than to focus on the details. Ideas and words tend to flow smoothly now. Publishing and learning new concepts can be in stronger focus. You are a little more hopeful and optimistic, as well as spontaneous and free with your ideas and thoughts.
The Moon continues its transit of your partnership sector in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, While you can be focused on balance and harmony with this influence, as the day advances, you begin to you seek out a little more intensity. Emotions are complicated but rather easy to channel into satisfying activities. Also today, Mercury starts its three-week transit of your solar eighth house, piquing your interest in mysteries or puzzles and consuming topics even more so. You tend to look for hidden meanings and motives. Small talk doesn’t appeal, while intimate, deep, and profound material does. Financial thinking is strong with more strategy or research in the mix. You are not as concerned with being heard and understood during this cycle as much as you are interested in understanding the workings of people and situations around you at a deeper level, and as a result, you could have some exciting and unusual conversations.
A focus on the details or your work continues in the first half of today, dear Capricorn, but when the Moon enters Cancer and your partnership sector later, your social life draws you right in. Mercury enters the same sector today, and while the Moon will influence here for only two days, Mercury sticks around until June 26th. During this cycle, you might frequently make decisions with others, and your best ideas seem to come through conversations. There can be a lot of time spent explaining, discussing, clarifying, and debating, and negotiating, but not necessarily coming to concrete conclusions! You may be particularly attracted to intelligent people with whom you can communicate well and exchange ideas during this cycle.
While you continue to tune into your needs for leisure, play, and entertainment or creativity in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, the Moon moves into your work and health sector later today, and your attention turns to practical affairs. Mercury heads into this same sector today, and while the Moon only stays there for two days, Mercury will stick around until June 26th. In the weeks ahead, you’re in particularly good shape for attention to details as well as anything that helps you get your life (or your mind) more organized. There can be a lot of effort and thought put into putting things in order, or your work can involve more communications. Watch for a tendency to fret, worry, and over-think.
Quiet activities continue to figure strongly as the Moon finishes up its transit of your home and family sector in the first half of today, dear Pisces. After this, you’re prepared to share yourself with the rest of the world. The Moon heads into your creativity sector for two days, while Mercury moves in the same sector for a three-week stay. You’re emotionally and mentally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. In the weeks ahead, your thinking is primarily geared to creating, sharing, playing, and expressing yourself creatively. You may be a little more intellectual in your approach to love, or communications figure more strongly with the people you love. It can also be a period when you and your ideas received quite positively.
