Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You have further insight into matters of your past now, dear Aries, as well as things that are hidden from sight and areas of your psyche that may have been holding you back from fully enjoying yourself. Seeing an old problem in a new way can be liberating on some level now, and others can be more supportive, or they allow you the space to come to your own conclusions. Even so, there can be gossip to deal with today or a tendency for people to blow things out of proportion. Watch for spending far too much time on an issue that you’re imagining might happen as it can cut into real life in challenging ways. Besides, chances run high that it will blow over. It can be important to avoid jumping to conclusions or into commitments. As long as you keep things fun and light without huge expectations, then this is an excellent day to daydream and consider new possibilities.
This can be a day in which others seek your guidance, advice, or support, dear Taurus, and you’re extraordinarily generous with your time and happy to share your thoughts and ideas. You can feel inspired by a friend, and a conversation or bit of news can encourage you to reinvigorate an old project that has decent potential for success. Pay particular attention to information coming in and to your instincts. However, watch for a tendency to go overboard in these same areas as well as with money. A Mercury-Jupiter square challenges you to think in bigger terms than usual, and this means you’re considering new ideas and plans. This influence can be useful as a mental exercise, but some self-control and common sense are necessary to keep things real. Today is favorable for connecting with others and ideas or information you need to move forward.
Mercury’s retrograde is enabling a new perspective on old problems, projects, and approaches, dear Gemini, mainly related to your work and long-term goals since Mercury is rewinding in your career sector. Right now, you’re eager to discover unique ways to manage your life better, and you can come to creative ways to do so. This can be an especially fertile time for work, business, and other practical ideas, and also strong for research into techniques for managing your health and wellness. Keep yourself open to insights and discoveries that truly help and empower you, but do watch for a tendency to gloss over practical details unless you’re merely daydreaming and enjoying yourself. Consider that your understanding of a situation is not yet complete. You may not be agreeing with someone on your long-term plans, and while this should be addressed, try not to put too much weight into it at the moment. Today is useful for making contacts along the lines of business, money, and resources, however.
The Moon continues to transit your sign all day, dear Cancer, and you may very well attract some nice attention your way. You’re also inclined to take things a little more personally right now! Others are especially interested in your conversation, ideas, and opinions, and you may be leading the way in some manner in your networks, with friends, or with associates. This is another good day for looking at past ideas and projects in a new way–you’re resourceful, and you readily pick up inspiration from what’s going on around you. However, there is a tendency to blow things out of proportion or to overstate your case. Communications ruler, Mercury, forms a challenging square with extravagant Jupiter, pointing to possible misjudgments. Their conflict can otherwise stir up some incredible enthusiasm and good ideas which shouldn’t be discounted. Moderate your expectations for best results.
You’re in good shape for mental insights about your personal life again today, dear Leo. Developments are likely with your intimate relationship with yourself, awareness of your fears, addictions, and attachments, or dependencies on others. Your vision of these things improve and ideas and strategies for better managing your life and dealing with problem areas can come to you in a beautiful flash. You’re mostly optimistic and enthusiastic, but you may be feeling somewhat moody as you deal with incomplete information. You may want to make big promises to make someone happy, but it’s best to keep things real today. Aim instead to stretch your imagination and consider new possibilities. Someone who’s worth your time won’t need you to go overboard. Besides, the Moon spends the day in your sector of rest and privacy, pointing to the need to relax and de-stress.
You’re in a good place to come together with others, dear Virgo, as you can feel on the same page with someone who has the power to relax you about a situation. It can be an excellent time for coming to powerful new insights into your life, particularly related to your relationships. Through a conversation, you might see the way out of old, nagging problems or you might arrive at solid strategies for dealing with your life. It’s a time for seeing things you missed in the past, but that are vital to complete the picture but do keep in mind that there is even more to the story. There can be some restlessness stirred today, and this can lead you to interesting places but could also lead you astray. It may be better not to make or rely on promises now. However, a friendship or project can be positive and growth-focused now.
You might solve a mystery or find another piece of an old puzzle or problem today, dear Libra. There can be much satisfaction in offering your practical support with information or your special skills. Strategies for increasing your income may come to you now. However, there is some tendency to make too much of a situation when it’s better to wait and see. A project may need a second look, and you could need to reassess how much time and energy it needs. With work or your health, you could have a sense that you have so many things to do that you don’t know where to begin. Making or relying on promises is not wise with Mercury square Jupiter today, but it’s good energy for dreaming up possibilities that you may not have considered on a regular day.
Your mind is extraordinarily fertile right now, dear Scorpio, and you’re in a good position to help others, particularly younger people, with your advice or information, perhaps in a mentor capacity. You’re recognizing resources that you’ve overlooked in the past. With Mercury’s square to Jupiter today, however, watch for a tendency to exaggerate or jump to quick conclusions, whether you’re doing this or someone in your life is making far too much of a situation than it deserves. You may not have the energy or time to put a plan into motion yet, so do your best to be patient. Open yourself to the possibility of forming connections that further a creative project or educational matter now, however, with the Sun and the North Node harmonizing.
You’re in a good position for rethinking home and family affairs, dear Sagittarius, and developing strategies to improve things. It’s also a fine time for sharing personal thoughts and memories with people you trust. You may be working especially well with a team or friend towards a common goal or cause. You could renew interest in an old project or return to something you’ve left unfinished. However, there is some tendency to inflate or exaggerate things that don’t deserve that much attention! This is due to retrograde Mercury forming a square to your ruler, Jupiter, making it even more vital than usual to consider the practical side of a situation before you throw yourself into it. Mind you, sound energy is with you for feeling stronger through family or intimate relationships, and it makes sense to focus on these positive, supportive matters.
You may be taking particular interest in a project, idea, or topic today, dear Capricorn that you may have left unfinished in the past. This is the nature of energies this week–you’re inclined to see value in things of the past that now seem more attractive. The key to their success when Mercury is retrograde as it is now is to take a new approach once you’ve revived them. You’re also in a good position for doing some researching, learning, teaching, and connecting today. Others might spark ideas or reinvigorate your motivation. A partner can be encouraging, whether this is a direct or indirect influence. While your default may be to go it alone, the benefits of a friend, partner, or support system are unmistakable today. Mental restlessness can challenge you to rethink a matter now, but could also lead to mistakes, so be sure you have the facts in front of you before you pour too much of yourself into a new venture.
You’re in a fine position for discovering information you may have missed in the past, dear Aquarius, particularly related to money, business, and relationships. In your working life, you can get yourself into an advantage as you seem to be the one in the know. The key today is to look at things in a new way, and to concentrate on those things that truly matter to you. Even so, Mercury is forming a tense square to Jupiter today, and it’s important to recognize the general tendency for people to jump too quickly to conclusions now. Optimism is fun and motivating, but too much can lead you to take on more than you can reasonably handle–this is something to watch with this aspect. It does encourage you to think up possibilities that you might not consider on another day, so keep your ear to the ground today and don’t immediately discount hunches.
This is a time for generating significant ideas, strategies, and goals, dear Pisces. Things you overlooked before now seem far more relevant. You might thoroughly enjoy investigation and research today, and resolving a conflict or solving a mystery can be especially satisfying now. You’ll need to draw upon your self-awareness today to avoid taking things too far, however, with retrograde Mercury square Jupiter. You may be saying too much, or you could be tempted to speak up about a matter, but it may be too early to do so. This influence might also generate so much confidence or optimism that you take on too many projects that you can’t complete later when energy and motivation levels out. You are ambitious these days, but you need to remind yourself of your usual limits. Also today, you can feel more confident about a relationship or a creative project that is showing wonderful promise.
