Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Aim to learn from frustrations emerging now as Mercury stations direct today, dear Aries, as you’ll have many opportunities to improve conditions going forward. Today, with the shift occurring, it may be wise to choose your words carefully, and your battles! You should probably avoid focusing on what’s said–or not said–due to general confusion. Today is not ideal for entirely new projects and endeavors, but you’ll be seeing forward movement on delayed projects in the coming days and weeks. Delays lift, and word comes through. As an Aries, you are particularly uncomfortable with the state of limbo, and fortunately, that’s ending now. The Moon is in your sector of reputation, status, and career all day, and you quite readily take the lead, preferring to get your responsibilities out of the way.
Mercury has been retrograde for almost three weeks, dear Taurus, and that cycle is coming to an end today as it turns direct. Remember, however, that communications can remain confusing as Mercury changes direction, and perhaps even more so. Avoid important conversations or sensitive topics just for the time being, as misunderstandings can be frustrating, and in some cases, wholly unnecessary. However, you’ll be seeing some forward movement in those relationships and endeavors that have recently suffered from delays or blocks. Tricky problems and indecisiveness will clear in the days and weeks ahead. Mercury’s forward turn in your social sector promises more clarity and understanding with friends, but for now, be especially attentive to details.
Mercury turns direct today, dear Gemini, and while this means an imminent clearing of obstacles and delays, the day itself is a shift day and can be confusing as a result. Mercury’s direct turn can have the effect of unblocking projects and endeavors that have encountered delays since March 5th. In the coming days, you can see work projects advance and communications open up, particularly with associates and bosses, parents, or managers. You’ll begin to feel the fog lifting in the coming days, and you’re likely to become more precise about your goals. Career matters tend to resume or pick up speed. For now, confused plans and communications are still expected, so be as transparent as possible or avoid serious discussions temporarily. Today’s energies feel cautious overall, making it a good time to go slowly.
You may need to deal with communication or transportation breakdowns today, dear Cancer, but while these things may have been more frequent in the past few weeks, many of these problems will begin to clear up over the coming days and weeks. There can be a real sense of moving forward in the coming days, but for now, you need to correct past mistakes and omissions so that you can clear the path. Be a little more mindful of communications, as misunderstandings are likely with Mercury at its station. However, you can look forward to moving on projects and endeavors in your life that were delayed or stuck in recent weeks. This is a good time for studying and reflecting, while brand new endeavors should wait. A turnaround for some of your projects, particularly related to travel, education, publishing, and legal matters, is imminent. Just don’t rush to put new plans into motion yet – take your time!
Watch today for impatience that can lead to blunders, dear Leo. Communications can be tricky, and you may be inclined to speak about something prematurely or impatiently. Mercury’s direct motion today is good news for financial and intimate matters as more clarity is likely to come to these areas of your life going forward. With the shift happening today, it’s important to be mindful of directions and communications. Even so, Mercury’s direct turn, once you’ve acclimatized to the shift, can help clear recent blocks and slowdowns, as well as fill in the blanks on some issues in the coming days and weeks. You’ll be in good shape for negotiating about money or time-sharing. The Moon transits your work and health sector all day, and you’re likely to feel emotionally satisfied once you’ve handled your duties.
Relationships are not likely to be easy today, dear Virgo, and you may need to take a look at the hard issues so that you can later take action to make some crucial changes. Now is probably not the time to do so, however, since Mercury is shifting direction. While this shift is a positive one with Mercury ending its retrograde period, today can be confusing. Don’t jump too quickly into action or sign on the dotted line just yet! Instead, allow new information to trickle in while taking your time. Think twice before committing today, but look forward to increased clarity within yourself as well as in your relationships going forward as Mercury slowly regains its regular speed and you feel more confident about making the right decisions. For now, take special care in your interactions with others and consider that you may be missing important details.
Today’s energies can be frustrating if you’re attempting to push forward plans, mainly related to work or health, dear Libra, but there are indicators that things are unblocking. The key is to be patient a little while longer. While work and health matters are set to iron out and become clearer in coming days and weeks, be a bit more vigilant than usual with your attention to details today. You may have been dealing with delays, or you’ve been waiting on information in recent weeks, but things should begin to turn around as Mercury turns direct today and will slowly regain speed going forward. Devise strategies and wait a few days before launching something personally meaningful. More clarity is on its way. Today’s Moon transit points to the need for some rest, relaxation, or special attention to your personal life.
Today’s Moon transit can stimulate your curiosity and your need for variety, dear Scorpio. While blocks of communication or mechanical breakdowns and misunderstandings may have been preventing communications from promptly and efficiently getting through recently, Mercury changes direction and ends its retrograde cycle today. Over the coming days and weeks, you might find that you’re returning to previous conversations that were confusing or getting nowhere, now with increased clarity. It’s time to come at problems from a new angle. In many cases, further information emerges, and this releases energy to flow forward. You may be reconsidering a goal or dealing with something that you overlooked so that you can clear the path for moving on.
Mercury stations as it turns direct today, dear Sagittarius, and while this change of direction brings less indecision going forward, today can be a little confusing. The end of Mercury’s retrograde cycle can point to improved communications with a partner and with family in the coming days and weeks. While you’re unlikely to see immediate results today, you can look forward to more clarity in your relationships soon. Over the coming days and weeks, you’ll find life a little easier to navigate as projects or appointments begin to move forward, motivation increases, and you’re giving off clearer signals. Home projects that were left undone now resume. Career goals also clarify. It would be appropriate to conserve energy now, and it’s best not to rush to put new initiatives into motion. Otherwise, the day is good for relaxing, comforting activities. Keep things simple for best results. Take your time!
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Capricorn, and this brings previously hidden or suppressed emotions to the surface. Your mood is good, and your mindset is positive, even though there can be some small annoyances to deal with today. This is primarily due to Mercury’s direct turn after a period of retrograde motion since March 5th. It’s good news, but it’s a shift of direction and can be mildly disorienting as a result. While it’s best not to jump into action, new launches, or major decisions just yet, you’ll enjoy some forward motion on delayed projects soon enough. Alternatively, further information can come in that facilitates decision-making. Over the coming days and weeks, many plans or projects that have recently stalled or fell off the radar gain traction. Aim to attend to duties that will help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress.
The Moon in your privacy sector all day encourages you to take things easy and keep a low profile just for now, dear Aquarius. With Mercury’s station today, it’s an opportune time for emotional recharge or for taking a light schedule. While the end of Mercury’s retrograde can come as sweet relief, do watch for a bit of chaos or some misunderstandings today as the shift occurs. In the days ahead, clearer communications are likely, information comes through, or previously delayed initiatives move forward. With Mercury’s current transit of your solar second house, this may very well be about money, personal possessions, or business. You’ll feel better equipped to move your plans ahead and make informed decisions. Ease things forward in a few days.
The Moon is in your friendship sector all day, encouraging you to seek out like-minded people or friends who accept you for who you are, dear Pisces. Relationships tend to fare well, particularly with patience. Wait, however, for making significant commitments. Mercury’s retrograde ends today, and this can help release blocks or delays. However, the shift itself can be on the confusing side, so take your time. In the coming days, you’ll benefit from a more straightforward approach to life, but you should observe things before jumping into decisions, and pay close attention to what and how you communicate today. Avoid going overboard now, aiming instead to ease into moving your plans ahead.
