Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your resources sector, dear Aries, where it will transit until Saturday. You’re inclined to focus on settling in and getting comfortable with this transit, but a challenged Mercury suggests it’s all too easy to get mentally wired up. You can experience some difficulties separating your responsibilities from your downtime. Listen to emotional signals to regroup and collect yourself, but you may need to do some mental exercise before you can get to a state of calm. In the process, watch for a tendency to see only the best or worst of a situation rather than see it for what it’s worth. It’s also quite easy to fall into disagreement with others now. You might feel that their ideas are too impractical or that someone is embellishing when you’d prefer a straight answer.
TaurusDifficulties understanding a situation now can lead to robust solutions and good feelings, dear Taurus, although there can be some misconceptions along the way. Discouragement, if you feel it now, is temporary. You may second-guess yourself before putting your faith into something or someone. Or, you might become frustrated with people around you who seem as if they’re overdoing it right now. You’d prefer to wait things out and let reason kick in before jumping to conclusions, and this is the wisest choice under today’s transits. Still, the Moon moves into your sign today, where it will transit for a couple of days, firing up your emotional sensors. Life demands more from you, and you can feel pulled in a variety of directions. You’ll need to do some juggling. Enjoy renewed enthusiasm without succumbing to the feeling you need to overdo something to enjoy it.
GeminiTalking things through is favored, dear Gemini, but gaining someone’s full support may be a challenge just for now. We tend to have a hard time keeping things moderate today. With the Moon’s move into your privacy sector, life tends to slow down, or at least you do. However, the tendency to make too much of a situation remains a potential problem as you seem to either imagine the worst or the best. You can feel some uncertainties about a relationship or plans that are up in the air. While your thinking tends to be practical and goal-oriented these days, emotional matters can muddy the waters today, and you can find it difficult concentrating. Sharing an activity with someone would be ideal right now, but be ready for some touchy conversations. This might give you the chance to better understand yourself and your goals, which helps you in the long run. It’s important to consider your abilities and resources before taking on too much.
CancerYou’re in an especially favorable period for learning and sharing your ideas, dear Cancer, but today, there can be some small obstacles or a mood dip to manage. It’s best not to waste too much time on regret, but you can certainly focus on something just long enough for you to take what you need to learn from the experience. Interactions with a partner or close friend can feel a little loaded as Mercury forms a minor clash with Jupiter, and soon, Pluto. Still, some doubt may be a good thing for you now as you test the strength of a venture or idea. The Moon moves into your social sector for a couple of days, and you can begin to crave a stronger connection to others. A friend can surprise you now as the Moon meets Uranus, bringer of change and the unexpected.
LeoThe Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Leo, pointing your attention to responsibilities and your reputation. Nevertheless, it can be difficult to focus on priorities in spots today because of your very divided attention. Consider that loosening up may benefit you now. You may be looking for comfort from others, but the support you crave isn’t likely to be as full as you’d like just for now. However, talking things through can lead to better responses going forward. With Mercury forming minor challenging aspects, watch for putting too much value into things that don’t deserve your attention, and overlooking important details that do. Thoughts and feelings will level out soon enough. If a direct route to your desires is not working, develop strategies, but avoid roundabout routes that will ultimately make you uncomfortable. From minor frustrations today can come wonderful new insights and feelings tomorrow and the next.
VirgoThere is a distinct tendency for us to miss the crucial details in the first half of today, dear Virgo, and to instead zero in on things that don’t hold as much weight. Stretching your mind to think up new possibilities without investing too much of yourself into these ideas can be a useful process. Give yourself time before jumping to conclusions. As the day advances, you may be in a stronger position to think more deeply and to consider all angles, but do your best not to take this tendency to greater lengths than is necessary — or healthy. You can too easily trip over yourself as you doubt or second-guess people or projects in your life. It may be best to avoid pushing things that are better left to run their natural course. The next couple of days are strong for strengthening relationships and projects, and perhaps some backstepping or second-guessing now can ultimately increase your conviction or faith in something or someone. The Moon moves into your adventure sector today, where it will stay for a couple of days, and this can stimulate a desire for a fresh pace.
LibraThere can be big ideas floating around you today, dear Libra, but it may be best to adopt a wait-and-see mindset. Allow yourself to dream up new possibilities but avoid pouring too much time and energy into thee things for the time being. Instead, aim to give yourself time to process and digest before drawing up a conclusion. It can be difficult focusing on priorities just for now, as your mind gets pulled in all sorts of directions. Watch, too, for glamorizing the past if it’s interfering with happiness today. If thoughts begin to circle and become obsessive, try to pull yourself out of it. While you may feel a little up and down about your pursuits today, the result may be a stronger conviction about what you’re doing or where you’re going.
ScorpioYou seem to be better off involving others instead of going solo today, dear Scorpio, as the Moon moves into your partnership sector. Alternatively, you can benefit from a fresh perspective. It can be difficult to focus in spots today, as you’re inclined to jump from seeing the best of a situation to the worst possibility, and rarely settling. It’s also a challenge to identify, isolate, or concentrate on priorities. The goal should be to try to relax your mind, which seems to be in overdrive. Still, clearing the air may be refreshing, or after second-guessing something, you ultimately recognize its value and feel stronger in your convictions. You’re heading into some more relaxing transits, but it may be best to avoid too-quick decisions now.
SagittariusWith the Moon’s move into your sector of work and health for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, you can feel a strong urge to take care of routine matters. However, at the same time, you tire quickly of anything that feels run-of-the-mill or lacking in magic and poetry at the moment with a Mercury-Jupiter influence this morning. It may be best to inject a little whimsy into what you’re doing to make it more palatable. Aim to take your time coming to conclusions but engage in some stretching of your mind now. You might also aim to avoid major decision-making regarding money and personal possessions. The tendency now is to imagine the extreme of a situation, good or bad, and it can be difficult to listen to your own voice of reason just for now.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your sector of fun, self-expression, and play for a couple of days, dear Capricorn. The focus should be on releasing tension and engaging in something you enjoy. Still, you may be wrestling with whether or not to give voice to your worries and concerns, or you might swing from positive to negative mental scenarios, with difficulty leveling things out. Aim to take your time digesting everything you learn now or enjoy a mental escape. Inner restlessness may be an issue now. Still, some mental unrest now can eventually help you work through all the possibilities, leading to a stronger decision or idea later on. Aim to go through this process, even if it seems lengthy.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your home and family sector until Saturday, dear Aquarius, making it a great time to enjoy familiar comforts, people, and settings. Activities that help build your sense of safety, belonging, and support can be helpful now. Even so, mental restlessness is possible now, or it’s hard to turn your racing mind off. It can be difficult fully backing a decision in this state, as there is a sense that something is exaggerated or magnified, good or bad, and it probably is just for now. You can very much crave undemanding moments, but you’re still somewhat pumped up about your projects. Test your ideas before going forward with them for best results now, as the day seems to make it hard to see things very clearly.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your communications sector, where it will transit until Saturday, dear Pisces, piquing your curiosity. It can be a most interesting day, although it can also be quite scattered. You can feel inspired or have a stroke of genius with the Moon meeting Uranus in this sector of your solar chart. This can be a great time for exploring personal interests and discovering something new. Still, there can be the sense that people around you are making the wrong choices or not seeing reason as Mercury in your sign forms minor but tense aspects with bodies in your social sector. The feedback you receive from others right now means more to you than usual. It can be difficult to stay focused or to come to a settled state of mind. Take your time coming to conclusions and especially making promises. Some hurdles might emerge that seem to slow you down but instead could lead you to stronger convictions later.
