Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re challenged to arrive at a better understanding of your work-life balance, dear Aries. A project might regain momentum, and money-making ideas are plentiful. Something you’ve been waiting for can gain clarity in the coming days. Mercury ends its retrograde today, and this can bring more clarity about a long-term issue. Delays and limbo related to career, status, reputation, and friendships can lift. Today’s Full Moon brings light to a spiritual or service-related matter for you, and it might nudge you into action regarding a work or health affair. Do your best to stay centered, and use any feelings of inner satisfaction to make positive changes in the coming weeks. During this shift, aim to take things easy, connect with your intuition, and to avoid jumping to speak about a matter prematurely.
TaurusMercury turns direct after nearly three weeks of retrograde motion today, dear Taurus, and this can have the effect of unblocking projects and endeavors that have encountered delays since February 16th. The shift occurs today, so don’t rush to put new plans into motion yet — take your time! In the coming days, you can see work projects advance and communications open up, particularly with associates and bosses, parents, or managers. Also today, a Full Moon illuminates feelings related to creativity, friends, romance, and personal goals. There can be an epiphany now, or final word on a matter. This can be an eyes-wide-open time regarding a romantic or creative issue. You may have been feeling stuck, and this leads to an epiphany about enjoying and expressing yourself more fully.
GeminiMercury ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Gemini, and you’ll soon feel more confident about making important decisions. You’ll also convey your ideas with greater certainty. You recognize the need to balance your life by paying more attention to your private life at this time with a Full Moon also occurring now. Blocks begin to lift, or motivation returns to pursue work projects. There can be some restlessness experienced now if you’ve been squirreled away recently and you need a change of pace. Today’s Full Moon can serve to open your eyes (or your heart) to a home or family matter. You may have been feeling stuck or in limbo, leading to an epiphany about your private world or your needs for nurture, comfort, and safety.
CancerYour spirit for making friends is renewed, dear Cancer, and the desire to do something about regrets or outworn patterns of relating with others is strong. It can also be a time of news or information that moves things forward. With the Full Moon occurring in your communications sector, you may need to scurry to take care of errands, small problems, paperwork, or other mundane affairs, particularly as you’ve been paying more attention to everything except these things recently. This is a brilliant, illuminating lunation related to your communications, studies, personal interests, making contact, and transportation. Connections and news occurring now can be significant. And, after almost three weeks of retrograde movement, Mercury turns direct, and you’re likely to see some forward motion in recent endeavors that have stalled. Watch for confusing instructions and putting your foot in the mouth today, but expect more straightforward communications going forward.
LeoMoney matters may come to full bloom now, dear Leo. It’s an excellent time for gaining a greater understanding of your money situation or relationships. An epiphany about your needs and wants occurs alongside a Full Moon, and it leads to good things. Mercury ends its retrograde cycle today, too, and plans will seem to come together in the coming week. Make it your goal to see a matter related to your income, financial situation, possessions, valuables, or sense of self-worth more clearly. Ultimately, your decisions and choices will be easier to make as more information comes through and you have a stronger sense of what you want. However, watch today for speaking too soon or too loudly before you’ve processed everything.
VirgoToday’s Full Moon is in your own sign, bringing about an epiphany, dear Virgo. A relationship matter might reveal itself, or your feelings become powerfully evident. Emotions run high, and yours could surprise you with their force. A personal revelation can also occur now. You stand to learn much about yourself and your feelings, and it can arrive in the form of a release or happy realization. This lunation occurs just when Mercury, your ruler, ends its retrograde, and you can feel nudged forward as blocks, of all kinds, lift. Tension has been building in your life towards something very positive and constructive! There are changes you need to make, and you’re more likely to take action if you’re just a little unsatisfied. Inner contradictions are par for the course now but will drive meaningful changes and improvements in the coming days. Because Mercury is currently shifting direction, you don’t have the green light for big decision-making just yet. As more information comes in, you’ll feel far better equipped to make decisions, particularly related to work, health, partnerships, and finances.
LibraPersonal revelations serve to push you towards growth and experience with today’s Full Moon, dear Libra. General confusion and delays begin to clear now, too, as Mercury ends its retrograde cycle. Current influences remind you of the need to reflect, rest, and relax. You’re paying more attention to your intuition, and you may have an important realization. Take extra rest, space, and time for anything that allows you to get in touch with your intuition more readily. There may be a work project or health matter that is reaching a head. Private and previously hidden matters can come to light, making it a good time in the coming weeks to heal and deal with them. You’re likely to see forward movement or come to a turning point related to creative projects, romantic relationships (or signals), partnerships, negotiations, and work or health matters.
ScorpioMercury’s retrograde cycle ends today, dear Scorpio, and a Full Moon occurs now that can bring about an emotional revelation or turning point related to your social life. There is a sense of moving forward related to an old problem for which you now have some closure. Emotions are strong related to friendship, networking, associates, group associations, happiness goals, and social life or community. Today’s Full Moon might open your eyes (or your heart) to a need for friendship, a feeling of belonging to something bigger than yourself, a satisfying social life, or a desire to contribute. Friends can demand a lot of attention and possibly some support now. With Mercury turning direct, you’re likely to see some forward movement or more apparent progress in certain projects or endeavors related to home, family, hobbies, or romance. There can be more clarity and possibly improved communications in your personal life. Keep in mind that this doesn’t happen all in one moment, so aim to ease into things.
SagittariusYour feelings about a long-term goal or your “calling” can surface now with a Full Moon occurring at the top of your solar chart, dear Sagittarius. You may need to take charge or take the lead. Mercury ends its retrograde cycle today as well, and blocks or delays seem to lift. A real sense that you want to move forward comes over you right now. A partner can be more energetic and confident, and good news or rewards on the job front can arrive. While you might learn where you stand with others, the picture isn’t entirely complete because of high-running emotions and Mercury’s shift in direction. Do what you can to avoid exaggerating your intentions, but pay special attention to what emerges now, whether it’s new information or your own intuition. The need to put your past behind you is strong so that you can make necessary changes in both your personal and professional life. Transportation, learning, educational, family, home, and communication difficulties are likely to clear up in the week ahead. Take new projects and developments slowly.
CapricornA new experience, studies, topic, perspective, or idea can inspire you today, dear Capricorn. A Full Moon occurs today, and Mercury turns direct after several weeks of retrograde motion. You can feel these influences as a friendly nudge forward, particularly on a mental level. Even so, it’s best to take in and process before pushing ahead. The Full Moon can generate much emotional energy, but for you, mental energy also runs high now. Aim to give yourself time to process any news coming your way, but also pay particular attention to the illumination of learning matters or the fruition of a project, as your true feelings on an issue can emerge now. Gradually you’ll enjoy more clarity with communications, transportation, personal finances, partnerships, and family or home matters. Today and tomorrow require extra care with communicating, purchases, and facts or figures. Ease back into decisions and projects.
AquariusIntimate or financial matters can come to a head with today’s Full Moon, dear Aquarius. There could be some drama with money, or it might be a time for settling debts or collecting on money owed. Take your time when it comes to making decisions. Mercury ends its retrograde, and certain blocks or delays lift, but there can be some confusion remaining during this shift. At the same time, the Full Moon brings a desire to light, and while some practical areas of your life are shrouded in mystery, you’re seeing the light regarding your true feelings on what you want, helping clear a path forward. Following your heart seems to be the way to improving money matters and relationships. A sense that by getting closure on an issue, your practical world will improve is with you now. In the coming weeks, recent indecision is likely to clear up and recent contemplation to pay off. Finances, communications, transportation, and work-related delays should lift going forward.
PiscesRelationship drama is possible with today’s Full Moon, dear Pisces, and it’s likely positive and eye-opening. This lunation brings a relationship matter to the fore, and with Mercury’s retrograde ending as well, plans will soon feel as if they’re starting to come together. Ideas may be coming to full bloom, and you find yourself at a crucial turning point. Something that has been brewing inside of you now reaches the surface, leading to a personal epiphany. It’s a high exposure time for you! Mercury began its retrograde in your sign over three weeks ago but then retreated into the sign just behind yours. Now, Mercury turns direct, and you’ll see some recent problem areas untangle. Choices become clearer in the weeks ahead. While you can continue to keep some things to yourself as Mercury moves through your privacy sector (until the 16th), you’ll find it easier to make decisions and to deal with private matters.
