Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Lunar Eclipse is powerful for gaining perspective on a past matter, dear Aries, helping you start fresh through this new insight. This new perspective on an old matter relates to communications, connections, travel, sense of adventure, and your urge to truly live and experience things rather than go through the motions. Your worldview is changing, and this affects your choices, decisions, and path forward. Tension is likely, but it’s motivating. This eclipse stimulates your senses–buried feelings and desires can emerge in powerful ways now. It can serve to illuminate a matter of spirit, adventure, learning, or a fruition of a project. If you’ve been ignoring your needs for mind expansion, then circumstances now tend to force the issue. An idea that you’ve been toying with may blossom now. Take your time to process and digest new information coming your way now, as well as the feelings stimulated because they can be exaggerated in the moment. Even so, they need some form of release. Epiphanies can be significant enough to change your perspective or even your life path. Announcements can generate quite a bit of attention. You’re in a progressive and inventive frame of mind, particularly when it comes to home life, money, and business.
TaurusWith today’s Lunar Eclipse, dear Taurus, you’re releasing something related to an intimate or financial matter. There can be a release or culmination of a matter along these lines. Seeing the past in a new light ignites a strong desire to make a change. A debt owed or coming through to you can require attention, or an event that puts you in a position to defend and honor your worth and value might emerge now. This lunation awakens you to matters surrounding sharing, give and take, power dynamics, ownership, intimacy, and finances. There can be epiphanies about financial and emotional support and dependencies as well. You may be dealing with inflated feelings about a person, relationship, or situation. These topics are sure to be big ones for the coming two years, and epiphanies or discontent experienced now can get the ball rolling towards making important changes along these lines. This is a time for making changes in the way you depend on others.
GeminiToday’s Lunar Eclipse can be a cosmic push towards recognizing your needs related to one-to-one relationships, dear Gemini. Partnerships are changing, and this is a time when your relationship or partnership needs become more apparent. It can be a tense and perhaps frustrated time, but these feelings motivate you to make vital adjustments. This is the first eclipse in a set that turns your attention to matters of independence and interdependence for the coming two years. The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse occurring today is in your opposing sign (Sagittarius) which can point to relationship issues coming to light, or to the illumination of a personal matter. Something about you can be exposed now, or you might make an announcement. If your close relationships have been lacking your attention lately, this is a time when you’ll be called upon to balance things out. There can be significant discoveries or epiphanies about your feelings or about a close relationship.
CancerToday’s Lunar Eclipse tends to bring dysfunctional areas of your life to your strong attention, dear Cancer, and it’s also good for motivating you to make improvements. Work, health, and routines or habits come into strong focus now. There can be a bit of a scramble to get your life into better working order, and the benefits of doing so are great. You’ll be doing a lot of balancing of work/rest and emotional health and physical health in the coming year or two, and realizations occurring now can spur this process along. This Lunar Eclipse is likely to bring light to a service-related or spiritual matter. However, it can also stimulate a sense that things need to be rushed when it’s best not to be hasty now. Deadlines can seem pressing, for example. Information surfacing helps to push your life forward, but decision-making should be a process, not a quick thing. Aim to be moderate. Knowing your heart about a matter will always help, and that’s what today’s lunation will help reveal. Desires can come on with great force, and while you should certainly listen to them, take your time with their pursuit, as emotions are heightened and it can be difficult to be objective. Today, relationships benefit from a progressive approach.
LeoA rather problematic but creative Full Moon Eclipse occurs today, dear Leo, and it’s related to romance, creativity, children, or hobbies in your solar chart. You’ll be seeking your joy this year and the next, and from some disappointments or misunderstandings in the coming weeks, a mission to improve your life can emerge. Today’s eclipse can illuminate feelings and matters surrounding friends, romance, and personal goals, and there can be an epiphany or a strong urge to create, share, and express yourself. Powerful emotions are brought to the surface. A big turning point can happen in your social life, or with a creative project. This is a time for being brave and shedding some of your inhibitions, but do be mindful of what you communicate. Listen to your heart, but take your time before jumping into action. Your true feelings about a person, romance, or a project can flood your awareness, and this can change everything! Or, letting something go makes room for a rush of new creativity flowing. You won’t have all the answers yet, but you’re on your way.
VirgoToday’s Full Moon Eclipse tends to pull up intense feelings, dear Virgo, and they can relate to your living conditions or arrangements, personal life, emotional world, home, or family. The need to make improvements surfaces now. Finding a better balance between your professional and personal life will be a theme this year and next, and this eclipse can get the ball rolling. You could be refocusing and making career or life path direction changes, and discontent with your current state of affairs may be pronounced now. This eclipse brings emotions to the surface and can illuminate previously hidden matters. There can be some level of chaos or state of flux now. Even so, you’re gaining new insight and a positive, fresh direction. There can be an epiphany about security, family, and how to manage your personal life. Once you discover those things that you’ve ignored or brushed aside, you have a greater chance of moving on and forward. This can mean house repairs, family drama, and possibly even career changes that affect home life.
LibraA Lunar Eclipse occurs today, dear Libra, and influences the sector of communications and immediate environment in yoru solar chart. Your senses are stimulated to the max right now. You can experience a revelation of sorts, but you may want to avoid being too impulsive with sharing it. A writing or learning project can come to completion, and there can be publicity or promotion playing a significant role in your life now, or stress over a looming deadline. Watch for outrageous rumors. Try not to be too hasty with movements and communications. Whatever develops under this Full Moon, it’s meant to push you forward, even if at first it slows you down. Watch out for processing too much information or for sensory overload — be discriminating with what you take in. There is certainly a tendency toward emotional extremes, but a Mercury-Uranus transit in effect today helps you see the benefits of trying to look at a matter more objectively.
ScorpioToday’s Lunar Eclipse suggests a full, emotionally intense atmosphere today, dear Scorpio. It’s the first Eclipse in a set that affects your money and sharing axis until December 2021. Unrest or discontent stirred now can get the ball rolling with making important changes with how you make, spend, and share your money and talents or other resources. Lunar Eclipses tend to mark important turning points in our lives, and this one can be about your money, valuables, values, and talents. Emotions are heightened surrounding any of these matters. There can be new discoveries or, more likely, illumination of matters that were brushed aside or left hidden. Whether it’s an important revelation about business or a situation that calls for standing up for yourself, this is a time that demands necessary changes. Watch for impatience and hastiness, however. Take in, but wait until you have digested new information before drawing final conclusions. This is a somewhat chaotic time, but in the end, it’s about bringing more predictability to key areas of your life.
SagittariusThe Full Moon occurring today is in your sign, dear Sagittarius, and it’s an eclipse, making it far more potent this year. This is the beginning of an important eclipse set occurring in your own and your opposite sign over the course of the coming two years. As a result, you’ll be exploring matters of independence and interdependence this year and the coming year. Emotions, feelings, and revelations now are pivotal. You’re looking back before you move forward. This eclipse can bring a personal matter to a head, perhaps in the form of an epiphany or another kind of revelation. Emotions seem to want to rule, and discoveries made now are of things or feelings that already existed but have been buried or ignored. The coming weeks can involve significant epiphanies, personal triumphs, and wonderful discoveries about your life plan, body, and attitude/outlook. This can also be a time when a close relationship makes headlines in your life. Some of you may be putting an attachment behind you and embracing the joy of independence. If you’re in need of an attitude makeover, this is the time. Even with inner contradictions, this is a time for recognizing a need for positive change. There has been a lot of attention to your relationships recently, and circumstances are such that you’re reminded to take care of your own emotional needs.
CapricornToday’s Lunar Eclipse can mark a turning point related to a work or health matter, dear Capricorn. It can have a way of bringing dysfunctional areas of your life to your strong attention! This eclipse awakens your service axis. You’ve been seeing flaws in the areas of work and health more insistently, and now you’re recognizing the importance of taking time to yourself to recoup, balancing attention to your physical health with care of your emotional health, as well as balancing your attention to work and procedure with the need for rest and room to get in touch with your intuition on matters. It can also be a time of great hunches and intense awareness of situations that are no longer working for you and that need to change going forward. It’s not the time to make sweeping decisions, however. Instead, this is a time for recognizing your feelings, instincts, and hunches, and then gradually letting a plan to handle things unfold. You are reminded in a dramatic manner that you need extra time to rest and relax, and to attend to your spiritual, emotional, and mental health needs. This lunation may serve to force an issue. Occurring in your privacy sector, feelings about a past matter become undeniable, or a previously hidden or secret matter is revealed. This is a time for making the decision to either embrace or let go of a situation, relationship, or powerful feeling. Either way, you’re acknowledging something important to you now and in the coming weeks and even months. Put fears aside and deal with whatever comes your way with self-honesty, as it’s the only thing that will help you to move forward in the way that serves you best. Be careful not to speak of something too soon, however. Today, a mental breakthrough can occur, and news can be exciting related to creative or romantic matters.
AquariusToday’s Lunar Eclipse introduces a new theme into your life, dear Aquarius, on cue with the North Node’s move into your sector of joy, romance, and creativity. The weeks ahead (and, in a general sense, the coming two years) are powerful for seeing your friendships, connections, and happiness goals in a whole new way. You are awakening to a need for kindred spirits, more involvement with friends or the community, and self-expression through creative mediums. Getting your income, bearings, or security and stability sorted seems critical to all of this, but impatience can spoil things if you succumb to it. This eclipse can feel a little surprising, as it has a way of turning your attention to areas of your life that have become dysfunctional or unsatisfactory, but that you have been overlooking. This eclipse occurs in your sector of aspirations, dreams, ideals, community, and friendships. There can be a sudden need for your help or support, or a culmination of a friendship matter, group project, or romantic relationship. You are in demand now! Whatever comes to light provides you with important insight into an old or brewing problem, and you are likely to feel purged and empowered as a result. Watch carefully, however, for stretched truths and false information coming in. Also today, you march to the beat of your own drummer, and you totally get away with it. Surprising opportunities or offers might come your way now, so keep your eyes open. You are open to talking about, or analyzing, very personal matters with good results.
PiscesThis is the first of many cosmic pushes (over the coming couple of years) towards a better balance between your home and working life, professional and personal life, attention to performance and attention to quiet, dear Pisces. You can experience an epiphany or realization, and it’s an important time for discovering your true feelings about a matter. You may be in demand now. This eclipse can illuminate a matter related to your career or a major life goal. You may be in the position to show off your professional and responsible side, or there may be revelations about your career and responsibilities. Watch for displays or outbursts, as they can be more public and impactful now than you expect. Emotions are heightened around any Lunar Eclipse, and this one is complicated by a challenging aspect to impulsive Mars, which can encourage immature behavior.
