Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon’s transit of your sector of spirit and learning awakens your need for a fresh focus, dear Aries. If you can manage some freeform exploration today, let your mind wander. As you let go, interesting ideas can come to you more intuitively, as well as possible solutions to recent dilemmas. You are more able to rise above the mundane elements of your life and tune in to something higher. This isn’t an ideal day for locking something down, but it’s just fine for musing and seeking out a bit of inspiration. It’s best to recognize that you may need to unwind and let your imagination go before returning to goal-chasing.
TaurusThe Moon continues its transit of your solar eighth house until this evening, dear Taurus, and you’re more inclined to observe than take concrete action. This is a good thing at this time in the lunar month, and also because entirely new endeavors may not get off the ground today. You’re more interested in the feeling side of your life than the material world right now, but others may be a little aloof or not very yielding in this respect just for now. You may want to wait the important things out. While this transit tends to draw your attention to the hidden elements of life and of yourself, avoid too-heavy thinking if possible. Let your imagination take you to a good, healthy place.
GeminiThe focus is on coming to some level of balance and harmony in your life, dear Gemini, with the Moon’s transit of your opposing sign all day. You are more relationship-focused than usual today, and while others can have something to teach you about yourself, you could have a tough time defining what you are truly feeling temporarily. Currently, your emotions can be mixing with what you feel others expect of you. Avoid important decisions until you are more sure of yourself and in touch with your true needs. While you aim to see eye to eye with others, as much as you try, a lack of synchronicity can interfere. It’s minor, and nothing that patience won’t fix. Today’s energies are better for reflection than action.
CancerYou have a greater love of taking care of your daily routines and work today, dear Cancer. You’re ready to take on activities that help you add a little more order to your daily life. Still, you may need to watch for overdoing your attention to the smaller tasks at the expense of your need to enjoy yourself elsewhere. Sometimes you need to relax and let go, which can be difficult to do today. Try not to pack everything into one day and instead look for better ways to balance your life. What you thought was a sure thing may not pan out right now, making it better to focus your energies on realizable projects for the time being.
LeoThe Moon’s transit of your solar fifth house today stimulates a desire to entertain and enjoy yourself, dear Leo. This transit can pull up your need for more interaction with others and channels for self-expression. Still, this is not an ideal day for good timing, in general, as we’re inclined to overshoot and bank on things that are not very viable. The trick now is to think in terms of improvement rather than expansion. It’s a fine time for freeform activities, in fact, and relatively carefree moments. You’re inclined not to think too far ahead of yourself just for the time being, and it’s a welcome breather from serious thought that can bring you back to your life more refreshed.
VirgoThis is another day in which emotions, personal matters, family, home, and familiar places are a draw, dear Virgo. You may be a little less adventurous with the Moon here, and it’s good for you to center yourself. You may need some extra reassurance or security before pushing forward–this can be thought of as a checkpoint of sorts, and it’s instrumental. You might discover ways to improve your home life while also reaching out to others or varying your routine to keep things fresh today. Keeping in mind that there is some tendency for unreliable responses, it’s a good idea to be ready to bounce back if certain ideas or plans fall through.
LibraToday’s Moon transit spotlights reaching out, keeping your mind stimulated, and learning and sharing, dear Libra. Promising too much can be a bandaid fix that seems to make life a little easier for now, but unnecessarily challenging later. You’re more inclined to dabble than to focus, and this can work well for you at the moment. You can learn a lot today from people with whom you connect. Even if it’s not substantial, it’s about discovering some of the little things about people that get you a little closer. Novelty and changes of scenery are in focus. It’s not an ideal time for reliable responses or schedules, but it’s good for a bit of diffusion, particularly if you’ve been stressed recently.
ScorpioYou’re drawn to comforting, earthy, and sensual activities again today, dear Scorpio, with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house all day. Emotions are settling in, and so are you, or at least trying to! There may be a disconnect or confusing situation with a friend to navigate. You may feel that you’re being leaned on a little too heavily. Be sure you take care of your own needs and goals as well. You’re in the mood for simple comforts and an easy, steady pace, and you seem better off with quiet, productive activities for the time being. Even if there are a few disruptions, it’s a good idea to wind down now.
SagittariusThe Moon in your sign all day gives you the license to focus on yourself and your needs, dear Sagittarius, and it can be refreshing! You’re especially in touch with your feelings but given to fluctuations. You’re not very geared towards tight schedules and rules right now, so it would be wise to avoid taking on too much. Give your mind a rest and seek out good company or undemanding activities, if possible. However, keep in mind that others may, more often than not, be in their own dream worlds today, and it’s best to focus on those things that make you happy. Good humor can be healing.
CapricornSome time spent in the background can suit you well today, dear Capricorn. Going about your business under the radar can help refresh you with the Moon’s transit of your privacy sector until tomorrow. Your imagination and private world can be especially appealing now. It may be wise to keep things as light as possible in preparation for busier days ahead. There is a real tendency to want to escape or retreat from the usual noise and activity of life. Finding effective ways to do so in healthy, helpful ways is important now, although it may not be as straightforward as you’d like.
AquariusIt may not be the best day to begin a brand new endeavor, dear Aquarius, but you’re in a fine position to dream up interesting new ideas and connect with your personal interests. The Moon is in your social sector all day, and you might seek emotional refreshment through light interactions with friends and networks. Ideas can’t be pushed or structured today, and are best come by when you aren’t trying too hard. Inspired can turn to tired rather easily today, however, as a bit of doubt or confusion tends to set in. This shouldn’t do anything important except to slow you down a little, which you may very well need. Let your mind go if you’re able to. While you can find prioritizing challenging today, if you let go of this pressure, you’ll be in better shape.
PiscesThe Moon is at the top of your solar chart again today, dear Pisces, encouraging you to focus on priorities and goals. Even so, it’s not an ideal day for concentration levels. You are especially sensitive to what’s going on around you and to others’ reactions today. It might make sense to give your brain a rest if it’s working overtime and not in your favor. Aim to go with the flow and enjoy a timeout. Until you get your heart and body in sync, you may feel a little off-center. You’re moving in the right direction these days, but give yourself time to figure out your priorities.
