Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, dear Aries, making it a perfect time to pour your energy into something you love. This is a time of the lunar month when you’re seeking more meaning or connection to a person or project. You’re less interested in surface matters and more concerned with what’s not out in the open and what everything means to you. More powerful emotions are stirred now. The emphasis today is on your feelings, close ties, and your inner world. You can be very productive in any work that involves depth research or analysis today. Even so, the Sun is currently in your sign, and now and in the coming four weeks, it’s time for shaping your life as you’d like it to be, as well as for being heard, noticed, and counted.
There is a particular emphasis on your relationships today with the Moon in your solar seventh house, dear Taurus. It’s also a time for gaining perspective. Because you see them more clearly, those things that have come out of balance can be set right. You’re seeking harmony and peace now, not only in your connections with others but in your environment as well. You may be spending a little more time than usual balancing your agendas and harmonizing with others, and it’s time well spent. Even so, the Sun just recently began its month-long transit of your privacy sector, and in a general sense, you’ll do well for yourself by making more room for reflection, rest, and some level of solitude. It’s the right time of year for forgiveness and letting go.
The Sun has only recently begun its transit of your solar eleventh house, dear Gemini, and it’s a robust month-long period for prioritizing the social connections in your life. In the coming four weeks, you have increased influence on friends and groups who, in turn, boost your self-esteem. While this transit often enlivens your social calendar, today’s Moon transit encourages a temporary focus on work and health. You’ll do well to take care of some business, particularly related to getting your daily routines and affairs in order. Helping you to avoid the over-analysis of problem areas and tunnel vision that sometimes comes with this transit is a Mercury-Neptune alignment that will be exact tomorrow. Imagination and mystery are themes, and you’ll do well by tuning in to your intuition.
With the Moon’s all-day transit of your solar fifth house, dear Cancer, you’re in a fine position for learning more about your needs and for finding inspiration in the world around you. A relatively freeform approach to your projects tends to work best for you now–a tight schedule is out. Tomorrow’s Mercury-Neptune alignment reinforces this. Your aura is positive and healing, drawing others in with your natural, free approach. The fifth house is your fun and creativity zone, and the Moon here encourages a playful approach to the day. Mind you, the Sun has just recently begun its transit of your solar tenth house, and until April 19th, you’re considerably more invested in your professional or social standing, what others think of you, and your ability to meet your responsibilities. Letting these things slide can make you fret, so it’s important to keep things balanced.
With the Sun’s recent entry into your solar ninth house, dear Leo, you’re considerably more focused on living your life to the fullest. It’s a sector that rules adventure, learning, spirit, and life experience, and in the coming four weeks, you’re likely to seek out a little more from life than the ordinary. Even so, today’s Moon transit encourages you to slow down and catch your breath so that you can pace yourself. Giving extra attention to your basic needs and feelings of safety can be satisfying now, and Mercury’s alignment with Neptune in your intimacy sector tomorrow seconds the motion that tuning into your intuition is important right now. You need emotional renewal before your upcoming round of activity, and familiarity can be integral to this. Look to dreams and hunches for vital clues as to your next steps.
The Sun is rather newly transiting your solar eighth house, dear Virgo, where it will continue to transit for another four weeks. You’re motivated to understand yourself, your relationships, and a significant other during this period, and you take a greater interest in projects, people, and experiences that stimulate your deeper feelings or that demand more concentration and commitment. It can be an important time for taking care of accounting or financial matters. Despite your attraction to resolving deeper problems, today’s Moon encourages a more external focus, and it’s a good break for you. You could find yourself “on the go,” making connections, learning, and sharing. You’re more talkative and curious than usual, and you’re easily distracted. As Mercury and Neptune head towards alignment, you’re especially tuned in to your audience or to how others are receiving you. Through your connections, you’re likely to feel more vital and creative now.
The Sun’s transit of your partnership sector until April 19th is a cycle that brings your need for others to the fore, dear Libra, and particularly a partner in whatever shape or form. It’s a time for making adjustments and compromises as you come to a better life balance. Today’s Moon, however, can serve to bring on a more practical focus and tends to settle emotions, which in turn can improve your productivity. You benefit from special attention to money matters and your resources. You can also make a connection or come into inspired information today that furthers your work or health interests. An imaginative approach to work, health, and business can figure strongly now and can be quite successful.
The Sun is newly transiting your work and health sector, dear Scorpio, and will stick around here for another four weeks, encouraging a practical focus on self-care. You’re investing more of your energy and pride in your daily routines, work, health, and wellness. While getting organized and enjoying what you do continue to be in the spotlight, today’s Moon encourages special attention to your feelings, independence, and creative self-expression. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and you can be in a naturally positive frame of mind. Senses awaken and, if your emotions are channeled well, you can enjoy an especially colorful, creative day. You tend to play things by ear today, and you’re more inclined than usual to trust your intuition, which is particularly useful with a Mercury-Neptune alignment imminent.
With the Sun’s recent entry into your solar sector of self-expression, dear Sagittarius, this is a wonderful time for putting yourself into the world and riding on the good vibes of others’ feedback. You’re inclined to pay more attention to personal hobbies or recreation and entertainment, and perhaps romantic feelings as well in the four weeks ahead. Even so, today’s Moon transit encourages introspection, and it helps you pace yourself. Slowing down and unwinding makes sense with the Moon in your privacy sector all day, and you’d do well for yourself to recognize that you need extra time to or for yourself. Fortunately, with Mercury and Neptune heading towards a conjunction, the pipeline to your inner world is open, and it’s a fabulous time for looking within. Activities that refresh and heal are the most satisfying and useful right now.
The Sun’s current transit of your home and family sector encourages a special focus on your personal life, dear Capricorn. You’re investing more of your identity and ego into your domestic world, and the focus in a general sense is on making yourself feel secure and content in your both your home environment–and in your own skin! Even so, the Moon tours your entire solar chart during this month-long transit, bringing out briefer but essential themes, and today, the Moon spends time in your social sector. As such, be sure to enjoy some easygoing interactions as well. While the day holds lighter astrological traffic than the past several days overall, you’re still in a fine position to connect with others and with your own needs, desires, and wishes. Today is about catching your breath and enjoying less pressured activities, friendships, and aspirations.
The Sun’s current transit of your communications sector encourages learning, connecting, and picking up assorted and various information, dear Aquarius, and will continue to do so for another four weeks. You take increased pride in your studies, communications, connections, and casual associations during this cycle. It’s a time for exploring new interests and learning new things. Even so, today’s Moon transit stimulates your ambitions, and it may demand a more focused approach to your day. It puts you in a take-charge frame of mind–perhaps you’re taking the lead now, even informally, or in a position of responsibility. You’re valued for your efforts and talents. Dividing your time and getting on top of at least one crucial area of your life make sense today.
With the Sun’s current transit of your solar second house, dear Pisces, you can find yourself particularly invested in your practical affairs, income, talents, and security. You’re motivated to build your resources and make yourself more comfortable during this cycle that will last another four weeks. Even so, today’s Moon transit encourages an adventurous mood. Focusing on the bigger picture can improve your mood, and a theme of growth and spirit can take hold just for today and tomorrow, putting you in a great position to gain some perspective. Love and freedom go hand in hand now, especially with Mercury and Neptune heading toward a conjunction in your sign. Find ways to escape the daily grind or the usual places and activities. It’s a good time for interesting conversations and experiences.
