Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in a serious but positive mood today, dear Aries. The Moon and Jupiter meet at the top of your solar chart, and there can be a boost to your reputation, public life, or career. Instead, it can be a time for feeling the excitement of wanting to pursue a goal or ambition. You feel most appreciated and motivated. You may be in a position to shine through meeting a responsibility. With today’s enthusiasm, it can be tempting to overdo or take on a little too much, but with this tendency kept in check, you’re likely to feel quite engaged today. Your comfort with your responsibilities radiates nicely. Later today, the Moon heads into your social sector, where it meets Saturn, fueling a desire to be productive. It’s a good time to be straightforward and to seek ways to simplify your life in key ways.
TaurusThe Moon aligns with Jupiter today, and you can be looking for something new to learn or experience, dear Taurus. You might focus on a cause that inspires you or an activity that expands your mind. There is some tendency to overshoot with this transit, but with this inclination under watch, it can be a good time to enjoy yourself.

Identifying your priorities makes sense now.
GeminiToday can be productive, dear Gemini, and you may be feeling especially motivated to improve, learn, and grow. Pouring energies into an enjoyable pursuit can be rewarding, but overdoing things is a potential pitfall with the Moon aligning with Pluto and then later, Jupiter.

CancerYour feelings for someone can expand quickly today, dear Cancer.
