Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEarly today, you could be in an indulgent mood, dear Aries. Try to find a balance between your very valid needs for comfort or inactivity and the need to tend to chores. Some things can wait, while others are better off handling as soon as possible. There can be a nice, supportive conversation about a personal matter or a bit of advice that works well for you today. While you can feel a little restless or divided this morning, you’re in great shape for catching up with someone, the news, or a special interest today. Conversations can be heartwarming. The Moon has climbed to the top of your solar chart, and you can be thinking up long-term goals or reconsidering ways to achieve current ones. There is a good sense of when to take the lead and when to let others do so. Reputation is enhanced, and it helps that you’re clear in your value, both to the world and to individuals.
TaurusThere’s some inclination to promise or imply more than you can fulfill early today, dear Taurus. Otherwise, the day is a good one for pursuing personal interests, learning, and discovery. There can be very nurturing, supportive teaching and learning moments today. You can very much enjoy sharing ideas and developing rich new ideas. The Moon moves in harmony with your sign, and you’re likely to feel more spirited and liberated. You’re in particularly good shape for communicating, connecting, and friendship, and you’ll enjoy some time spent freer of worries about your responsibilities. Networking can be especially fruitful, stimulating ideas or reinvigorating your motivation levels. You might inspire somebody with an idea or a unique perspective on a matter. Current relationships are a little spicier than usual.
GeminiWatch for overscheduling early today, dear Gemini, as you may set yourself up for disappointment because it can be challenging to concentrate or follow through. If it’s inappropriate to be inattentive now, try to be more vigilant. Otherwise, you may only need a small break. There is terrific energy for money and business strategy as the day advances. While you may be in an indulgent mood personally, you could come up with rich ideas about how to take care of business, in general. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, and you’re in a good position to get into deeper touch with your desires, needs, and wants. Today is also suitable for giving particular thought to money, work, and long-term goals and for making plans to better take care of these areas of your life. Your mind is fertile and resourceful now.
CancerWatch for taking on too much early today, dear Cancer. There can be a tendency to overreach with your projects, pleasures, relationships, and comforts. It’s best to remind yourself that having more of something will not necessarily make you happier. The Moon spends the day in your opposing sign, putting you in the position to enjoy a new perspective on your life, whether this happens naturally or through the eyes of a special someone. It’s a good time to release some pressure or focus on personal plans and redirect more of your energy into your relationships. Fortunately, you can find natural outlets for communicating your ideas and expressing yourself. It’s an excellent time to pursue a special interest. Both guiding others and learning valuable things can figure strongly and succeed now.
LeoWhile some splurging can be good for you, today, it may stimulate a vague feeling of guilt or regret, dear Leo. Things you think will make you feel more comfortable and at ease are a big draw. However, extravagance is unlikely to satisfy, as attractive as it may be. Turning to tried and true comforts is likely to be more successful. Otherwise, today has strong potential for productive thinking or conversations. It’s a little easier than usual to articulate your feelings. Words exchanged now might stand out as comforting or helpful for healing. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and as the day advances, you’re in good shape for clearing up various chores and tasks. You want to straighten things out and take care of details now. Even with this practical focus, work behind the scenes, research, or conversations about private issues can figure strongly. You are particularly insightful about matters of the past, things hidden from sight, and areas of your psyche that may have been holding you back from enjoying yourself.
VirgoThe Moon transits your creative sector all day, dear Virgo, and this influence enhances your natural good humor. You might contend with some restlessness or insatiability early today, and it’s best not to overdo or overstate as a means to overcome boredom. Today’s energies are strong for helpful and nurturing conversations. You’re getting your message across warmly and personably. There can be some tendency to take on a little too much early day, but as the day progresses, it’s easier to go with the flow and enjoy yourself as you do. Others might seek your guidance, advice, or support, and you’re especially happy sharing your ideas and generous with your time. You’re in the mood for special attention, and you are more likely to receive it if you express your feelings sincerely and without expectation.
LibraWith the Moon in your home sector all day, dear Libra, you could find yourself seeking refuge, particularly as you’ve been pulled in many different directions recently. You’re in the mood to lay low, relax, and enjoy familiar faces and places. Escaping from the hustle and bustle would be ideal. It can also be a strong day for nurturing a business, learning about health methods and techniques, and communicating with associates. The day’s energies are especially fertile for work, business, and other practical ideas and strong for research into techniques for managing your health and wellness. There is likely to be a chance to successfully talk about difficult or complex emotional matters easily and painlessly. You seem to know what to say due to a strong understanding or empathy now. You might rectify problems or misunderstandings through the power of words if something needs repair.
ScorpioThere is some tendency to go overboard today and tomorrow, dear Scorpio, but it’s also a fine time for open-hearted conversations or valuable thinking sessions. While you may be feeling very optimistic, try not to take on too many commitments and avoid doing things to excess. The Moon transits your communications sector all day, and you can be hungry for mental stimulation. Chances run high you’ll find a lot of interesting things to engage your mind. The day might be busier than you’d like, but also a great time for creative ideas and warm, hopeful exchanges. You’re communicating your affection naturally, honestly, and with excellent results. You are drawn to interesting and smart people today, and they to you.
SagittariusYou may have so many wants and needs that you may not know where to begin right now, dear Sagittarius. Avoid over-committing and stretching yourself too thin. Still, today is good for feelings of validation, and these can come through loved ones. It’s a good day for conversations and ideas as long as you work around restlessness and over-reaching. You could have a cleansing conversation about a personal matter. The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and you may feel the desire to settle in, get comfortable, and enjoy yourself. There can be a notable sharing of helpful ideas and support. Your emotional state is strengthened by feeling secure and independent so that even small efforts to get to these states will be especially satisfying.
CapricornYou should be feeling pleasantly emotional and connected today, dear Capricorn, especially if you manage to tame restlessness. A good way to approach your day is to feed your desire for knowledge, variety, and activity. You are not in the mood for the usual fare. Communication, particularly with a partner, can be especially helpful, fertile, and even healing today. You’re in fine shape for set-ups such as counseling or teaching and learning situations. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and you can feel that your emotions are blossoming. It’s a great time to reach out, support, and accept help, as well. Fortunately, a Moon-Mars aspect makes it easier than usual to find channels for expressing yourself.
AquariusToday’s energies are particularly good for productive thinking and communicating, dear Aquarius. You may be inclined to overindulge or procrastinate otherwise, however, and it’s not the best time to schedule work or activities that require attention to detail. It may be wise to tame your expectations of others, as people may be taking you on a bit of a rollercoaster ride, whether intentionally or not. Focusing on making your own happiness can be most successful now. You’ll find it a nice time to get in touch with important feelings as well as to draw up marketing plans or budgets. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, and you’re inclined to keep a low profile. Use this time to get to know your feelings and needs more intimately. Healing and replenishing activities are most appropriate now, and you tend to find them quite easily. Work spent on solitary or private projects can benefit greatly.
PiscesToday’s energies are good for collaborating, enjoying yourself, and experimenting with new ideas, dear Pisces. There can be some tendency to overstate or promise too much, even unintentionally, and this comes from a desire to keep the good mood alive. However, these things can bite back at a later date, so try to keep things as real as possible. Today can bring a wonderful teaching (or learning) moment, and you can have a meaningful or helpful conversation or thinking session. Others appreciate you for your unique insight. There is a sincere interest in one another so that relationships get a nice boost. The Moon spends the day in your sector of friends, dreams, community, and hopes. It’s a good time to making plans to achieve your happiness goals. You may be nurturing others through your words now. Your thinking is also strong for recognizing resources that you’ve overlooked in the past.
