Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You can readily get a bit lost in your inner world or in a dream or fantasy as retrograde Mercury aligns with Neptune today, dear Aries. It may be an especially imaginative and/or creative time, too, although it depends on how you approach the day whether you’re inspired or confused! You’re inclined to reminisce or talk about the past, but if “real life” seems dull in comparison to your inner landscape, it can get you into a frump. A memory or a chance meeting with someone can arouse all sorts of memories and feelings, and possibly some constructive ideas, although you’ll have to sort through all of this later when you learn more to the story and gain a more unobstructed view. This is not the time to rush decisions, and it’s a good idea to avoid communicating something offhand but do consider that ideas coming to you now have the potential of being golden given some refinement later on.
Thanks to a Mercury-Neptune alignment today, dear Taurus, you want to see the very best in people and life itself, and this can help you ease down, enjoy yourself, and heal. Resolve to enjoy the moment rather than enter situations with complicated expectations for best results today. You may be dreaming up exciting and inspiring plans, or this is a time to enjoy the good feelings that fill you up as you help someone out. While conversations with friends and lovers can be fun and imaginative on the one hand, there is a small tendency for misunderstandings, likely due to wishful thinking that gets in the way of clarity. Empathy and compassion are in great supply today, though, and it can feel good to show your appreciation for someone you care about.
Ideally with Mercury and Neptune coming into alignment today, dear Gemini, you can combine intuition and reason in beautiful ways. This can be a time of inspiration as you bring more creativity, color, and imagination to your career or objectives since this pairing occurs at the top of your solar chart. You may be dreaming up new ideas to impress others or to further your professional interests. It’s an excellent time for a creative or imaginative touch that goes over well. However, there can be some confusion or impracticality now, and it’s best to be aboveboard in all of your dealings. Be vigilant when it comes to what you share with others, particularly professionally and publicly. Otherwise, enjoy the increased imagination and creativity that’s with you today, and express your ideas with extra flair.
With Mercury and Neptune in alignment today, dear Cancer, fantasies and fanciful ideas can be in strong focus. You’re in an excellent position to add more color, panache, and imagination to your life. Others tend to seek you out for conversation today, and you’re inclined to keep the airwaves open. Still, you may have had some difficulties expressing yourself clearly recently, or you’ve been on the fence about various issues. As such, you may need to take extra care with how and what you communicate so as not to mislead, however unintentionally. Your powers of persuasion are quite strong, but deceptions or misunderstandings are possible. Romantically speaking, it’s a fine time for forgiveness and compassion.
You may be tapping into incredible faith that things will happen as they are meant to be, dear Leo, as Mercury and Neptune form an alignment today. Your fantasy world is rich, although there is a chance your imagination could run ahead of itself. While you can make some interesting observations about the motives and desires of a special someone in your life now, wishful thinking may come into play and skew judgment a little. It may be hard to know if your thinking is illuminated or mistaken! This is not a good time to lend money or invest because the details are foggy at the moment. Freeform activities are in better, and in fact, excellent shape, and you might decide to focus on comforting thoughts that are magical indeed.
With Mercury in alignment to Neptune today, dear Virgo, it can be a time of animated conversations or inspiring thoughts and fantasies. These can be enhanced even further through letting your imagination go and enjoying more freeform activities. However, it’s not the most practical time, so it’s best not finalize anything important. Keeping an open mind is essential now, and it may be better to reserve judgment for a day when you’re clearer. There is likely to be more to the current story–it’s unfolding as you go along! Healing energy is with you, and you can be in a sweet and sentimental mood nonetheless, particularly if you resign yourself to the idea that you don’t have to be completely “in the know” to enjoy yourself now.
This can be a eureka kind of day, dear Libra, as you discover something you overlooked in the past, although it’s better to keep in mind that there’s likely more to the current story. You can be especially aware of (and sensitive to) small changes around you, but many of these things can be vague or hard to define as Mercury and Neptune come together in your solar sixth house. Adding unusual or creative elements to your routines can help you to feel more fulfilled now, and the same can be true of work or the pursuit of wellness. You might also find yourself in the position to assist or support others today, helping them find the information they need, for example, and it can be especially satisfying today. You’re tuning into other levels of conversation and observation, and you’re more inclined to focus on the benefits and rewards of your work, efforts, and routines.
You are hungrier than usual for affection or feedback today, dear Scorpio, but you’re also open to different levels of appreciation as Mercury and Neptune align in your solar fifth house, so you could be finding what you want in unusual places. While you should probably take what others say (or what you think they’re saying) with a grain of salt today, this can be a truly inspired time romantically and creatively speaking, especially if you “go with the flow.” High expectations are what may trip us up now, whether these are about others, ourselves, or life itself. Healthy escapes can help refresh your thoughts, and exciting ideas can emerge at this time. You’re more inclined to think of pleasant things or to entertain fantasy now, and it’s good for you to do so.
There can be some magical moments with someone special today, dear Sagittarius, although restlessness is also possible if you’re holding onto high expectations. You’re likely to be seeking out more pleasing or ideal conditions, and this can work out fine if you’re not anticipating far too much, too soon. You can very much enjoy thinking or talking about the past today, and you may be romanticizing it a little. Try to be content with leaving things open to interpretation and your mind open to options. It’s not the time to lock something down. If you keep your sense of humor and avoid looking for clear answers, it can be a highly creative and imaginative day. A lack of clear direction can be frustrating, but you need time to let things form and unfold.
Do what you can to find unique ways to express yourself today, dear Capricorn, or different channels for your interests, as you’re tuned into unusual things now. If possible, do avoid projects that require careful attention to detail and facts since the energy of the day is more creative than practical. There can be some problems discerning between fact and fiction. If you feel discontent, it’s a great time to think up innovative solutions and improvements to your life. While you should watch for self-deceit and incomplete information today, this can be an imaginative, original time for you. Writing and speaking can be especially inspired, and an unusual approach to absorbing and sharing information may be in order.
It can be all too easy to be misled, or even to deceive yourself today, dear Aquarius, as retrograde Mercury aligns with Neptune. Even so, this alignment is highly creative and has much potential for bringing imagination to your working world. You may feel quite inspired now, in fact. You can rework a project or idea more imaginatively. Love can be dreamy or confusing–it’s often a toss-up when Mercury and Neptune meet. As it falls in your solar second house, this conjunction points to conversations and thoughts centering around your personal possessions, money situation, or business. Ideas for business or making money can be unique and creative. You might also have such a fabulous way with the resources you already have that you can feel fresh once again.
People are especially drawn in by your ideas or words today, dear Pisces. A significant person in your life can be in agreement with you, or is notably in your corner with your needs and wants in mind. You are picking up a lot from what’s going on around you, and people may be spreading positive word about you. This can be a time for leading the way with a calm, understanding approach as Mercury and Neptune align in your sign. While this is a creative and persuasive influence, it’s not particularly grounding, so that if you’re in a more fragile frame of mind, it might be best to seek out an anchor through a special someone or a satisfying activity. Watch for falling victim to a feeling of discouragement or restlessness. Avoid creating drama if your life seems a little too humdrum or dull without it.
