Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesUntil midday, the Moon continues to encourage your more adventurous and curious nature, dear Aries, after which, responsibilities and material priorities come into stronger focus. While you’re learning much through observation these days, you may feel a stronger desire to take action now. You may feel motivated to manage a matter that you didn’t handle well in the past. It’s a time for settling your debts and obligations, and for letting go so that you can move forward with less guilt and more freedom. With Mercury’s move back into your solar twelfth house, there can be a stronger focus on your private world and a tendency to keep things, including the decision-making process, to yourself in the weeks ahead. Lasting until April 11th, this transit tends to pull you inward. It’s a great cycle for tapping into your inner wisdom. You might return to a line of thinking that first emerged last month and now is relevant again. You’ll feel the need for more rest and time to meditate, think, and process recent events.
TaurusYou continue an introspective, observant cycle until midday, dear Taurus, when you feel more active and want to participate. In the first half of the day, there is some tendency to stress as there can be a feeling of urgency about getting things done. Rushing will not cover the flaws–slowing down and making refinements are more likely to serve you well. Be gentle on yourself and aim to sort out conflicting feelings. Also today, Mercury moves back into your sector of wishes and hopes. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be paying a lot more attention to friendships, networks, and long-term goals. Mercury entered this house of your solar chart in early February, but later turned retrograde and then retreated. Now that it’s back, it marks a time of a fresh start with a friend or a long-term project. You may spend more time networking, connecting, gathering ideas, and considering alternatives. Mercury here can renew your interest in making connections, as well as reawaken enthusiasm about a dream or project that was on the backburner.
GeminiThe Moon continues to emphasize partnerships and companionship today, dear Gemini. Still, from midday onward, you’re inclined to prefer deeper connections and subject matter. One-on-one interactions can be a little more emotional than usual in the first half of the day. Confusion or conflict about your long-term goals may be an issue now. Today and in the coming weeks, your thoughts often turn to career or life-plan matters, and what you say or write has more impact than usual. This theme is due to Mercury’s return to your solar tenth house, where it will transit until April 11th. You’re more aware of how others are receiving you and your ideas. It’s a generally good time for professional interests, communications, and relationships as clarity and motivation increase.
CancerTaking care of business continues to be a strong focus today until midday when you’re more inclined toward company, dear Cancer. You prefer to focus on your relationships than your practical affairs. If you can tune out distractions in the first half of the day, you can accomplish a great deal. This is a day when your eye for detail can be both a pro and a con. If you can manage to channel this ability to the right things, you’ll be in great shape. You are especially into expanding your mind with a trend that starts today. There can be some aversion to routines with Mercury’s return to your spirit sector. Even so, it’s a time for feeling more clear-minded, and this decisive transit will stick around until April 11th. It’s a strong time for giving your needs and interests beyond the material world due consideration. It’s is a fine time for optimistic thinking, and you’re sure to enjoy a smoother flow of communication.
LeoYou’re likely to begin the day with expectations of fun and stimulation, dear Leo, but by midday, you’re inclined to want to roll up your sleeves and dig into work or routine matters. Be sure to seek some emotional refreshment as the morning’s quarter Moon reminds you to slow down. Try to let go of some of the intensity, even if you feel that it helps drive and motivate you, at least in spots. Feelings can be conflicting, but being on a fence can stimulate you to make improvements. With Mercury’s move today, there will be a stronger focus on your inner world and close relationships in the weeks ahead. It’s a good time for making sense of some of your habits, tendencies, and gut reactions. You might formulate some wonderful strategies during this transit that lasts until April 11th. Some matters gain clarity, particularly related to finances and relationships, and this boosts decision-making.
VirgoThe Moon’s transit continues to turn your attention to family and domestic matters until midday, dear Virgo, after which you emerge from your protective emotional shell, seeking out channels for self-expression. You could be looking for extra reassurance in the first half of the day. Look within for answers, and aim to surround yourself with familiar people, objects, and situations. Mercury moves into your partnership sector today, and until April 11th, decisions might frequently be made with others, and your best ideas come through conversations. Mercury is now transiting your opposing sign, where it will stay until April 11th. This transit began in February, but due to Mercury’s later retrograde, the planet retreated. Partnerships, negotiations, compromise, and balance are stronger themes. You’re in a better position to strengthen, repair, improve, and make connections. There’s more clarity in your life now.
LibraWhile the need for extra mental stimulation and activity continues for you today, dear Libra, by midday, you may want to pull back just enough to regain your emotional center. The first half of the day can be hectic, particularly as you may sense that others (or circumstances) are getting in the way of your projects or plans. Juggling your interests with your obligations can be difficult, as both are compelling. Any tension felt now is likely to point you in the right direction for making improvements. With Mercury’s return to your solar sixth house, you’re in great shape for tending to details, lists, tables, charts, and anything that gets your life — and your mind — tidy and organized. This transit lasts until April 11th and frequently draws your attention to details, routines, and practical affairs. It’s a fine period for making edits and adjustments that will get you back on track and in a healthier position.
ScorpioYou’re more interested in building on what you have than taking on new things in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio. Any activity that grounds you and reminds you of your connection to the earth is appropriate now, even if others are encouraging you to do a little more. The Moon’s move into your communications midday begins a theme that emphasizes an emotional need to reach out, learn, connect, and understand. Mercury returns to transit in harmony with your sign today, and in the weeks ahead, your thinking is geared to creating, sharing, playing, and expressing yourself creatively. This transit, lasting until April 11th, stimulates a smoother, more natural flow of communication in your life. This transit may reawaken an interest that first came into play in early February.
SagittariusThe Moon continues to transit your sign, exciting your emotions, in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, after which you’re inclined to settle down and work on building your resources. You are more sensitive to the atmosphere around you this morning. Before rushing to fulfill your desires too quickly, try to process your feelings. While it seems as if you know precisely what you need, if you look more deeply, you might discover that these sudden desires are about something else altogether. With Mercury’s move back into your solar fourth house today, over the coming weeks, you may be making more decisions about home and family. Thoughts more frequently turn to personal and domestic matters. Attention to your personal life is a pleasant priority now! It’s a generally good time for opening up the lines of communication with loved ones.
CapricornThe Moon moves out of your privacy sector and into your sign in the second half of today, dear Capricorn, starting a new lunar cycle for you. Focusing on yourself and what you’ve been missing in recent weeks is appropriate now. With the Moon in the sign behind yours this morning, it can be a time for tucking yourself away in some manner. Emotionally, you’re not as equipped to deal with pressures and demands, and decision-making requires more time than usual. This a time for making assessments and recognizing what should stay and what should go. From now and until April 11th is one of the better periods of the year for learning and brushing up on skills. Mercury moves back into your communications sector, and you’re in good shape for reaching out to others, picking up new interests or renewing old ones, and for studies of all kinds. This transit increases your desire to learn, share, and connect.
AquariusToday’s energies continue a sociable trend until midday when the Moon moves into your privacy sector, dear Aquarius, and you might want to pull yourself out of demanding situations, at least emotionally or mentally. It’s a good time to focus on emotional renewal and healing. In the first half of the day, you might be considering how your larger dreams and visions fit into recently made plans. You might attract people to you who share or enjoy your unique perspective, but it can be hard to know where to put your energy. Any roadblocks encountered now might assist you in the long run, as long as you don’t give up too easily. Starting today and for the next two weeks, you’ll be putting far more thought than usual into business, finances, and practical affairs. You can be especially clever with money and particularly resourceful in your endeavors until April 11th. Clarity about money matters is likely. You’ll feel more informed.
PiscesThe Moon continues to encourage a goal-oriented focus until midday, dear Pisces, when a desire to unwind with good company takes hold. Conflicting feelings and desires are likely in the first half of the day with a quarter Moon. You might feel a little lost or off-track, but this temporary feeling may very well motivate you to make the necessary adjustments to put your plans back into motion. If you’re feeling swamped, aim to prioritize and let the rest fall into place later. Starting today and in the coming weeks, you’ll find yourself more talkative, communicative, involved, curious, and responsive. Decisions come far more easily than they have in recent weeks as Mercury returns to your sign today. Your thoughts are more forward-looking now, decisions are easier, and you can feel as if you are stepping out of mental fog. Further information can emerge that brings more clarity to your life or general direction.
